Botulinum toxin is the active ingredient in BOTOX, the most popular non-surgical, age-defying cosmetic treatment. BOTOX is a type of neuromodulator that can reduce fine lines, wrinkles and so much more. BOTOX works by preventing nerve signals from reaching a certain area of the body or face. This not only prevents muscles from constantly contracting, but it smooths away wrinkles and prevents the development of future wrinkles. 

Why is BOTOX® the king of nonsurgical cosmetic enhancement?

BOTOX is not a facial filler. Facial fillers are meant to fill in facial wrinkles whereas BOTOX relaxes the underlying muscles which create the wrinkles in the first place. When injected by a skilled medical profesional in Tijuana, BOTOX is extremely versatile and a small amount can be used to correct the following cosmetic concerns:

  • Treatment of forehead lines
  • Smooth out frown lines also known as “11” lines 
  • Provide a non-surgical brow lift 
  • Treat crow’s feet
  • Treat the upper lip to provide a plumper look or fix a gummy smile 
  • Treat “bunny lines” on the sides of the nose 
  • Slim a wide or square jaw
  • Smooth orange peel skin on the chin 
  • Smooth vertical bands on the neck to reduce their appearance

BOTOX has also been used to:

  • Relieve migraine headaches
  • Ease muscle spasms
  • Minimize sweating (hyperhidrosis)

Reasons to get BOTOX® treatments in Tijuana

Your results are dependent upon your injector’s skill.

The results of BOTOX depend on the highly accurate injection of very small amounts of the medication into specific muscles. A skilled injector can identify the exact muscles to treat and carefully administer the correct amount of BOTOX. This is where experience and knowledge of facial anatomy come into play and will determine whether your results are natural looking.

What should I expect when getting BOTOX® injections?

During your consultation, our skilled injector will assess your skin and discuss your goals for treatment. They will also answer any questions you have about the procedure. Once you have decided to proceed with treatment, your provider will clean your skin and inject the botulinum toxin into the desired areas.

The entire process takes less than 30 minutes, and there is no downtime required. You may experience some minor redness and swelling at the injection sites, but this should resolve within a day.

What is the recovery like from BOTOX®?

One of the great things about BOTOX is that there is no downtime needed after the treatment. Just be sure to avoid excessive sweating or exercise for at least 24 hours after your injections, as this can spread the toxin to unwanted areas of the face.

Additionally, it's important to avoid touching the treated area and to limit sun exposure to prevent bruising. Some patients will still have tiny pinprick marks from where the needle entered the skin for about a day, this is normal and should subside quickly.

When will I see the results of my BOTOX injections?

Some of the results of your BOTOX injections may become visible within the first week, however, it can sometimes take up to two weeks for the full effect to be visible.

What should I not do after my BOTOX injections?

It is important to avoid massaging or rubbing the injection site for up to two weeks after your BOTOX procedure in Tijuana. This can cause the BOTOX to spread to other muscles and potentially produce unwanted results. Once the full effect of the BOTOX has manifested, you should see a noticeable reduction in wrinkles and fine lines.

How often will I need BOTOX injections to maintain my results?

Results with BOTOX can be dramatic, but they are not permanent. You will want to repeat your injections every 4-6 months to maintain the desired effects. However, many patients notice that with regular treatment, they can take preventative measures against wrinkles and fine lines.

Is BOTOX safe?

BOTOX is safe and is even FDA-approved for certain health issues such as migraines.
