Botulinum toxin (BTX), more popularly known as Botox, is a neurotoxic protein with multiple medical, cosmetic, and research applications. The two main commercially manufactured variants of Botox are types A and B. Botox in Mexico, a leading destination for low-cost but high-quality plastic surgery, is administered through injections and primarily functions by weakening, immobilizing, or paralyzing the target muscles.

Historically, Dr. Alan Scott first tapped the efficacy of Botox as a muscle relaxant for therapeutic purposes in the 1960s. The neurotoxin’s potential for cosmetic use was discovered in the 1980s by Dr. Jean Carruthers in the late 1980s. Today, Botox has more than 20 recognized uses and is licensed in more than 85 countries.

Medically, Botox helps treat conditions such as strabismus (misalignment of the eyes), bruxism (excessive teeth grinding and jaw clenching), blepharospasm (involuntary blinking, upper motor neuron syndrome, and chronic migraines, to name a few. In small doses, Botox can immobilize a muscle for a short length of time. The neurotoxin is also suitable for relieving pain that comes with temporomandibular joint disorders or TMD. When it comes to cosmetic purposes, Botox is widely used to reduce facial blemishes such as wrinkles and creases.

Patients who wish to see immediate cosmetic results without any downtime prefer Botox over surgical facelifts that typically require the patient to wear facial bandages and endure swelling and bruising for several days on end. In contrast, a Botox injection entails swelling that takes only about one or two days to subside. The effects of Botox normally last from four to six months.

Some people, however, can have an allergic reaction to Botox. In addition, those who have an ongoing infection in the area where Botox will be injected should not receive the medication because the toxin can spread to other areas and cause serious side effects.

For this reason, it pays to consult a board-certified dermatologist such as Dr. Sara Lea Salas of Female Rejuvenation Center before receiving Botox in Mexico. Trust a qualified dermatologist to be able to recommend the appropriate non-surgical cosmetic procedures that can enhance your appearance with minimal discomfort and downtime.
