Who says Botox is just for aging folks? There is no rule that says young people in Mexico or anywhere else can’t undergo the treatment. For almost as long as Botox started to gain fame in the beauty industry, the concept of preventative Botox has been around. Basically, this means that young women in their 20’s get the treatment when early signs of crow’s feet, brow creases, and all sorts of wrinkles start to show, instead of trying to reverse those blemishes later in life. If you are interested in getting preventative Botox, here are some tips. Ask a Trusted Dermatologist Some would argue that 20-somethings are too young to get Botox. Board-certified dermatologists, like Dr. Sara Lea Salas from Baja MediSpa in Tijuana, will tell you otherwise. There is no appropriate age to get Botox because each individual’s skin is different.

For instance, when you are heading out of the house and exposing yourself to the sun, you should apply sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 50. Only apply sunscreen that a dermatologist, like Dr. Sara Lea Salas from Baja MediSpa in Tijuana, will recommend for you so you won’t get a negative reaction. Put On Oil-Free Makeup Once you start to see signs of healing, you can go back to using makeup. This will cover up slight redness on the treated areas. Just be sure to get oil-free variants to help along the healing. Opt for green-based makeup as well to disguise the redness.

You haven’t been working out, and the temperature outside isn’t enough to make someone sweat, but your underarm says otherwise. Now, you’re scared of even raising your arms confidently out of fear of revealing those sweat stains on your clothes, and you’re desperate for any solution, from antiperspirants to actually considering on moving to a colder climate, that can get you out of your woes. Sweat in itself isn’t a bad thing; in fact, it’s your body’s natural way of cooling off and removing harmful toxins. Sweating too much, on the other hand, can be a cause of embarrassing situations and complicated social interactions. Also known as hyperhidrosis, excessive sweating happens often on the underarms, while others experience it on their palms and the soles of their feet.

With summer at its height, it can be difficult to get around without being exposed too much to the sun.

Fortunately, there are several ways to treat the sun damage. One of the most effective options is to use intense pulsed light therapy or IPL.

When people think of lasers, they don't often think about it being used as cosmetic treatments for the skin. However, the use of lasers to help people look good has actually been around for some time. Since 40 years ago, argon or CO2 laser has treated vascular birthmarks that marred the face. Since then, people have been using lasers to remove skin imperfections and improve their looks, with further advances enabling more options. How It Works Lasers work by producing highly intense light that functions in a specific wavelength ranging from the visible violet to the invisible infrared. Depending on the particular wavelength used, there are various effects on parts of your skin. For example, vascular skin lesions, those marks on your skin caused by your blood clotting, absorb laser light in the visible range resulting in them being heated and destroyed.

Afraid to try out that bikini for your beach vacation because it exposes your deepest, darkest secret, namely, unwanted hair on your armpit? Though body hair is very common even among women, they typically only have a peach fuzz or fine hair on their chins and above the lips, or even on the chest, abdomen and back. Growing dark, unsightly hair in these areas, however, is another story. This condition─ known as hirsutism─ is mostly seen in men and not so much in women. While getting rid of unwanted hair may seem as simple as shaving it off, doing so could be frustrating once you see that they’re growing back, making you wonder why this happens in the first place.

As you grow older, it can be hard to look in the mirror, with wrinkles and blemishes taking over what used to be youthful, glowing skin. Thanks to modern science, however, there are now several ways to rejuvenate your looks. The usual option is surgery but there are actually some nonsurgical options that can achieve the same results. For example, spas in Mexico have Botox specialists that can help reduce the wrinkles on your face. Botox Basics Botox is actually the brand name of a toxin produced by botulinum bacteria. Though able to cause paralysis in large doses, proper application and careful dosages can cause a controlled weakening of muscles and block nerve activity. This is how Botox uses this effect: with a Botox injection, the blocked nerves let your skin contract, smoothing out the wrinkles on your face from frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines.

Reddish bruises that branch out like spiders on the face and legs are common blemishes that concern most women. Known as spider veins, this skin condition normally suggests exhaustion or aging, with twisted, dilated, or broken veins visible from underneath the skin. The specific causes are not known, but the blemishes become more apparent with age as the skin gets thinner. Increased blood pressure due to alcohol intake, causing facial veins to dilate, may produce discolorations on the skin that create broken capillaries. With continuous alcohol abuse, the marks that appear by then could already indicate liver damage.

The appearance of freckles, wrinkles, and spots in particular areas or throughout the body is a sign of skin damage from staying too much under the sun. Damaged skin from overexposure to the sun is also the leading cause for pre-mature aging. Although these pigment changes are relatively mild, sun-damaged skin may develop pre-cancerous symptoms like moles and reddening. Actinic keratosis and actinic cheilitis, both of which are symptoms of a common skin condition known as squamous cell carcinoma, may also be noticed in the skin. Moreover, harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays also weaken your skin’s healing functions, leaving you with severe bruises amid minor injuries.

Healthy, of Age, and Not Expecting A Botox injection is completely safe if administered by qualified doctors, but it might pose a risk to the patient if he or she is not healthy, of age, or pregnant. The ideal age range for getting Botox in Tijuana is from 18 to 65. While the age limit of 65 is not strictly imposed, it is recommended that people over that age do not undergo the procedure because they might have weak neural junctions which will render the treatment ineffective. Pregnant women and people with illnesses are also poor candidates for the cosmetic procedure. In any case, it is best to get your doctor’s opinion if your condition will affect the treatment negatively. No Allergies and Substance Abuse Problems Having allergies without informing your doctor is an accident waiting to happen. Before you undergo any procedure, it is a good rule to tell your doctor if you’re allergic to any drugs, and do your research about what you can expect from a specific treatment. If y

Acne occurs not only on the face but also on other parts of the body such as the neck, chest, shoulders, and the back. It also comes in many forms, with the less prominent types being the white heads and black heads. When they appear as small pinkish bumps, they are called papules. The presence of pus on top creates pustules. The larger and painful types, deeply embedded in the skin, are nobules and cysts. Cysts, being filled with pus, are likely to leave scars, which can be prevented using intense pulsed light (IPL) technology. A lot of factors are believed to worsen acne. These include changes in hormonal levels, pollution and high humidity, or pressure from items like backpacks and tight collars, to name a few. Squeezing or picking at pimples can aggravate the infection, too. Interestingly, although many believe certain foods can cause acne, scientists have not been able to determine a substantial connection between acne and diet.

So the sun’s up on the beach and the prospect of a tan excites you? Well, a sun-kissed skin may look great but not when you learn that long-term sun exposure can cause your skin to age prematurely. This may not sound new but perhaps science can persuade you to think twice before you lounge on the beach under the hot sun. First, don’t take the wrong message: Sun exposure has its health benefits. One most of us are familiar with is Vitamin D, which is essential for bone, teeth health and immune system. As it’s said, however, too little or too much of anything can still be potentially dangerous. An article by the Reader’s Digest Best Health Blog, for example, shows the image of a man with photoaging (dermatoheliosis) caused by excessive UV exposure. The man was a truck driver for 28 years, whose half face was consistently exposed to the sun, showing evident chronic wrinkling compared to the other which was protected by the shade.

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.

According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), acne vulgaris (otherwise simply known as acne) is the most common skin disease among Americans, especially teens. While a proper skin care regimen can help clear up the skin in cases of mild acne (along with help from topical products), severe cases may need more potent assistance.
