Botox Treatments for wrinkles


BOTOX Treatments
Tijuana, Baja California, MX

Botox CosmeticBotox is one of the most popular treatments for aging, wrinkled skin. Botox, a form of botulinum toxin, is commonly used on horizontal forehead furrows, vertical lines between the eyebrows and “crow’s feet” around the eyes. Because it is non-surgical and very effective, many aging adults turn to Botox to improve their appearance and alleviate signs of aging.

Am I a Candidate for Botox?

You may be a suitable candidate for Tijuana Botox treatment if you have noticed the following:

  • Facial wrinkles
  • Forehead furrows
  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Vertical frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Vertical bands on the neck
  • Some dimples on the chin
  • Excessive sweating on the armpits or hands
  • Migraine headaches

Botox Treatment in Tijuana, Mexico

Botox is injected into the wrinkle-producing facial muscles and freezes them. During the treatment the pain is minimal, and some ice can be used to alleviate any discomfort. Tijuana plastic & reconstructive surgeon Dr. Fuentes will inject a small amount of Botox into the muscles that create the wrinkles on the face. Botox then blocks the impulses from the nerve to the facial muscles and relaxes them so they don’t cause wrinkles. Dr. Fuentes will make a series of injections following the pattern of the wrinkles. As the facial muscles relax, the skin begins to look smoother. These results will last for three to six months. It’s recommended that patients regularly schedule maintenance treatments to keep up the improved appearance. Another indication for Botox is some types of migraine headaches; these may be alleviated for three to six months. One more indication of Botox is to treat excessive sweating on the hands and armpits; in these cases, results can last for about nine to 12 months.

Recovering from Botox Treatment

Botox is a non-surgical treatment that does not require extensive downtime. Typically, Botox Tijuana patients can immediately resume their normal activities following a Botox appointment. However, for the best outcomes and shortest recovery, patients should avoid high impact exercise, applying makeup or lying flat for at least four hours after they’ve received the Botox injections. Also, Dr. Fuentes strongly advises against rubbing or massaging the treatment area for 24 hours, this prevents the risk of the Botox migrating from the treatment area.
