Botox in Tijuana

To understand how Botulinum Toxins work, we must first describe it.

It is a toxin produced by a bacterium: Clostridium Botulinum, which produces one of the most powerful poisons that exist, however, this should not cause concern since there are different variants of it, being Botulinum Toxin Type A (TBA) used in aesthetic medicine, and instead of being a toxic substance, it is beneficial, as TBA acts by inhibiting muscle movement, which helps to reduce wrinkles on the skin.

It is recognized as Botox too.

What is Botox Tijuana used for?

Since the mid-90’s it has been used by Plastic Surgeons and Dermatologists in the treatment of wrinkles, and as a muscle relaxant indicated to treat different pathologies.

How does Botox in Tijuana work?

The same as in anywhere else! It works by partially blocking the nerve impulses of the injected muscles, reducing their excessive contractions, dramatically improving the appearance of wrinkles, producing a youth effect and facial beauty. Botox is used for forehead wrinkles, “frown” between the eyes, “crow’s feet”, and occasionally, for some vertical furrows on the upper lip and the neck. Botox is also excellent for preventing excessive sweating on the hands, soles of the feet, and armpits.

Areas to be treated

Some of the most common areas for Botox Tijuana application with average doses are:

  • Furrow and glabellar wrinkles (wrinkles that form between the eyebrows).
  • Crow’s feet.
  • Forehead wrinkles.
  • Eyebrow.
  • Lip stretch.
  • Upper Lip Wrinkles.

What is a Botox Unit in Tijuana?

Just like anywhere else, Botox in Tijuana is measured in units. The units measure the biological strength of Botox, that is, it is a scale to standardize the ability of Botox to relax the facial muscles. Units are unique to Botox and are determined by the laboratory that produces Botulinum Toxin. Each vial (bottle) contains 100 units, although this number varies depending on the laboratory producing the toxin, and this can be divided into individual blocks to treat various areas.

Duration of Effect

The anti-wrinkle effect of Botulinum Toxin injection can last from 4 to 6 months, this is variable according to each person because the effect is particular and depending on the laboratory that produces the toxin. It is well known that the Botox and Dysport brands, being 2 of the main brands, offer a duration of around 5 to 6 months, after this period a new dose of botulinum toxin can be applied again.

It should be noted that the application of Botox Tijuana can be combined with some fillers without experience side effects, but that under the recommendation of the aesthetic doctor after your evaluation.

Age for the Application of Botulinum Toxin

Botulinum toxin or Botox Tijuana can be used effectively in the prevention of wrinkles, regardless of the age of the patient, since situations related to personal lifestyle can cause wrinkles to begin at any age. What is valuable is that you visit a certified Doctor who performs an individual assessment and determines, in your case, what is the time and the appropriate dose to start with the application of this treatment.

Botulinum Toxins Brands

As previously mentioned, there are different laboratories dedicated to the production of Botulinum Toxin; one of those laboratories is Allergan and it is the largest TBA marketer in the world due to its already well-positioned and recognized Botox brand.

Botox 2 1


In 1998 the Allergan Laboratory acquired the rights to commercialize referred toxin and does so under the name of Botox, creating one of the most recognized brands in the world today. Although little is known about aesthetic medicine in daily life, it is a brand that has been present even in the news, extolling its benefits and including negative connotations towards it as well.

With that said, we understand that the Botox compound is Botulinum Toxin. Botox is not the compound, it is the brand and, currently, it is not the only Botulinum Toxin that exists on the market.

The results obtained with Botox can be the elimination of expression lines, the significant reduction and even the disappear thereof, depending on the depth and reaction of the facial crease. The results begin to be visible after 72 hours and its maximum effect is established within 15 days after the application.


It is another of the brands that exist in the market. It is manufactured by the Ipsen Biopharmaceuticals Laboratory and Research Center and in Mexico, it is distributed by Galderma, a world leader in dermatological research. Over the years, Dysport has gathered reliability just like Allergan’s Botox, gaining market and being recognized as a substitute for Botox.

The results with Dysport can be the elimination of fine lines that noticeably diminish or disappear depending on the depth and reaction of the facial crease. The results begin to be visible after 72 hours and, its maximum effect is established within 15 days after application. The Natural expression is not lost, emotions can be expressed freely and naturally, without generating wrinkles and giving a more youthful appearance.

The broad experience of the Art Image specialists allows them to apply the product in a way that only natural, not artificial results, are obtained.

Botox Tijuana is an excellent alternative to reduce the appearance of expression lines and wrinkles. Still, it is always recommended to go to specialized doctors such as those found in Imagen Art.
