Panama Botox Treatments
As we get older, our skin loses its elasticity. With the daily contraction and flexion of facial muscles, we begin to see creases, or lines, in our face. Around the mouth these are known as frown lines. By the sides of the eye - crow’s feet. Exaggerated lines in the forehead become a distinct, furrowed brow. While some people choose to ignore these obvious signs of aging, many prefer to address the issue head on with injections of Botox. Panama is the ideal environment for a medical holiday for botox treatments.

Botox, the trade name for Botulinum Toxin A, is one of the neurotoxins produced by Clostridium botulinum. This bacterium is also responsible for the deadly food poisoning, Botulism. However in small doses, the toxin acts to paralyze certain muscles and/or block certain nerves. When these small doses are injected in to specific parts of the face, the wrinkles in the surrounding area will disappear. The wrinkle free effects of Botox last up to four months.

Hospital Punta Pacifica Panama offers professional, reliable Botox treatment. Prior to the treatment, your doctor will briefly discuss your medical history as well as any medications you might be taking. Your doctor will enquire about your expectations and photographs will be taken of your face.

The procedure itself requires no anesthesia and is complete in approximately 10 minutes. You may experience mild discomfort along with the injections, but nothing intolerable. The amount of injections required is based upon the specific area(s) being treated.

If you choose to stay in Panama following your medical tourism Botox treatment, you can resume your normal, relaxing daily activities. Though there is no post procedure treatment, be sure not to apply any pressure to the injection sites as the Botox can shift. Temporary facial weakness or drooping is a possible side effect of a compromised injection site.

Results of your treatment are noticeable in as little as 3 days. For most, the full results of Botox are apparent one week following the procedure. You will enjoy a wrinkle free face for as long as four months. When the Botox wears off, your wrinkles will reappear.

As with nearly all medical procedures, there are risks involved with Botox treatment. Some who have received Botox treatment complain of headaches, swelling and pain at the injection sites. Other risks include nausea or flu-like symptoms. In rare cases, the Botox spreads from the injection site and can cause difficulty swallowing, drooping eyes and breathing issues. Time can catch up with us quickly. Alleviate those nagging cosmetic concerns by wiping away age defining wrinkles with a medical vacation Botox treatment at Hospital Punta Pacifica Panama.
