Cosmetic surgery such as the Botox injection treatment is very affordable in the Philippines. Lower overhead costs and professional fees makes it possible for U.S.- trained plastic & reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Carlos Lasa, Jr. to perform these surgeries at a fraction of the cost of the same procedures in the United States, U.K. and other countries, without sacrificing quality of care.
The Philippines’ medical services can rival the best in the world. Most Filipino doctors speak English fluently, ensuring the good communication between surgeon and patient that is essential during consultation. There are qualified and well-trained plastic surgeons who charge relatively affordable fees, especially if they practice in Asian countries like the Philippines, where cost of living expenses are low and if they can keep overhead costs low by having modest outpatient surgery clinics. However, be careful if the cosmetic surgery provider you’re considering charges much lower than others in the same country. Although price is definitely a factor when considering elective surgery, patients seeking quality medical care at very affordable prices should know that choosing the right surgeon is the single most important decision they will make. For best results for your botox injections treatment, choose an authentic plastic surgeon who has had formal training in plastic and reconstructive surgery and experience in this particular procedure.
This popular non-surgical procedure involves the injection of a small amount of Botulinum Toxin Type A (Botox Cosmetic) right into the muscles that create wrinkles. Botox temporarily inactivates these muscles, lessening and even eliminating the appearance of crow’s feet, frown lines, laugh lines, and forehead wrinkles. After a Botox injection, the patient is no longer able to frown so that existing frown lines are smoothed out, giving a more refreshed appearance.
Although Botox is a toxin, it has been used safely by ophthalmologists for over 10 years and has been used for wrinkle therapy since the early 1990’s with no serious side effects documented. Botox can also be used for jaw muscle hypertrophy, excessive armpit sweating, and calf muscle hypertrophy.
Results from a Botox treatment usually last three to six months, after which, a follow-up injection is recommended. It has been reported that after several treatments, the effect of Botox appears to last longer, often up to several months.
