Looking at removing facial wrinkles? In Cebu City, Philippines you can get your anti-aging treatments while you’re visiting on holiday, and return home looking so much younger that people will think you’ve just had a really relaxing time.
People have spa treatments while away, so why shouldn’t you get some anti-aging treatments? Even if you have taken good care of your skin, used anti-aging products, sunscreen, and moisturizers, removed your makeup diligently every night you still won’t be able to halt the march of time on your face.
Fortunately, solutions are easier than you think, and they don’t necessarily include surgery. In the modern world there are many non-invasive and minimally invasive treatments available to get rid of the lines and wrinkles and give you a fresher looking face. These include deep facial treatments, peels, Botox and dermal fillers that give wonderful results and don’t take much time either. Are these affordable is another question.
Cebu City has affordable medical facilities that are of great quality. You do not compromise on your treatment, yet pay a small price for it. The city is the second largest in the Philippines and is a great holiday destination. You can plan a holiday there and simply catch a flight since it has an accessible international airport. If you live in Australia or one of the many countries, whose residents are issued a visa on arrival, all the better.
The city has loads of tourist attractions, good climate and great beaches and blue waters. It is home to exotic marine life and you can take part in many water based activities. It also offers a range of international and local cuisines. You can also find luxury hotels, resorts and even budget accommodations to suit your requirements.
While you can book on your own, you will take a risk when you do so. That is because there are many cosmetic clinics and even salons that offer such treatments and you will not know how experienced the staff there is and whether there is a certified doctor attached or not. You will not be aware of the risks and consequences of getting any kind of cosmetic treatment in a foreign country either.
Booking through Medical Departures is a safer option. That is because we conduct safety checks before we list clinics and hospitals on our website. We check out the qualifications and credentials of the doctors and staff to make sure that they are up to standard. We ensure that the clinic has a good ambience and that the staff speaks English so you don’t have any communication problem. This provides you with an extra layer of protection.
There are many different kinds of treatments and you may wish to avail of one procedure or have a combination. For example, in many cases botox and fillers may be required for different parts of your face. If you have dermabrasion or chemical peels then only one kind of treatment is required. Some laser treatments may require more than sitting.
Treatments also vary in how long they take, the downtime afterwards and exactly how they target signs of aging. Most offer some form of skin rejuvenation, whether it's removing the dull, outer layers of skin, or adding in ingredients, such as hyaluronic acid, which is found naturally in our body but which we lose as we age, or stimulating the body's own production of collagen - the building block of firm, health skin.
Among the treatments available are:
Botox – this is injected using very fine needles and works by paralyzing the muscles that have contracted. This results in removal of wrinkles as the skin plumps up.Dermal fillers – of different kinds and with various brand names, fillers are also injected into wrinkles and furrows and fill them up, plumping up the skin.Dermabrasion – various kinds of devices are used to ‘wound’ the skin at a deeper level. These use techniques like fine pricking like needles or sand; this stimulates the product of collagen and, in time, results in smoother skin.Chemical peels – controlled acids are used as chemical peels to remove a layer of skin. The new skin that grown is relatively wrinkle free and smooth.Laser – various kinds of lasers are used. These penetrate deeper into the skin and stimulate the production of collagen that makes the skin look younger and removes wrinkles.Radiofrequency waves – this uses a different technique but works similar to laser treatment.
Most treatments are over within 30 minutes. Results can take a few days to a week or ten days to be apparent.
As various treatments have different prices, it is difficult to estimate how much it will cost. It can cost between a few hundred to a few thousand dollars for facial wrinkle treatment. Botox and fillers are charged by unit, so it depends on how many units are used. In Cebu City the cost will be between one-fourth and one-third of the price in Australia.
