Botox ® and its Uses
Botox ® is a muscle relaxer used to treat all sorts of conditions in your body besides signs of aging; such as grinding teeth, excessive perspiration, urinary incontinence, and migraines. It has been used for many more conditions for years and has been gaining popularity since making its debut in the world of cosmetic medicine in 2002.
What to expect during my Botox application?
You don’t need any special preparations for your appointment. The only simple requirements are: do not apply makeup, show up with a clean face, and let your Dermatologist or Plastic Surgeon know all of your doubts and concerns as well as the results you are looking for. Your doctor will go over your medical history and aesthetic desires and will recommend how to proceed; ie. the number of Botox ® units that should be applied and where. Botox ® applications usually last 15 to 20 minutes, so a regular appointment lasts 30 minutes to include time for an assessment.
You’ll be able to see the final results 48 to 72 hours after the application. Minor redness and minimal bruising can appear in the treated area. These disappear 24 to 48 hours after application.
Avoid lying down on your face the first 4 hours after the application to avoid “displacing” your Botox ® to other muscles. It’s normal to experience some minor numbness in the treated area. This is temporary and subsides within a day of the application.
Cost of Botox in Tijuana
At VIDA Wellness and Beauty, the cost per unit is $8 dollars. During the consultation, your surgeon will determine how many Botox ® units you’ll need in order to achieve your desired look. Most people require 20 to 30 units, but these numbers vary according to the patient’s needs.
