The Ultimate Guide to Dermal Fillers in Costa Rica

Upset by the unwanted lines that you suddenly spot? Dermal fillers in Costa Rica can help you to get rid of them, leaving you with a subtly refreshed appearance after treatment.

If you are looking to holiday somewhere you can get a two-for-one deal in Costa Rica – a holiday and your treatment. The country is a stunning vacation destination, and a definite favorite among North Americans. Medical tourism is also on the increase here, and there are plenty of good-quality clinics offering the high-standards you would expect.

Dermal fillers have little downtime and give virtually instantaneous results – a great treatment to get on your holiday if you want to make the most of your time enjoying yourself rather than recovering from treatment.

Many of the dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid based. Some may have collagen or other substances that are FDA approved for use in fillers. Each has its pros and cons. An experienced doctor or dermatologist may actually use a combination of fillers (or fillers and botox) to get the results you require. Some of these fillers are safe to use without pre-testing while others need pre-testing for allergies.

Why consider dermal fillers in Costa Rica?

Costa Rica is in Central America and easily accessible from Canada and the U.S. It is also a medical tourism destination for the residents of these countries because of the affordable medical care available at good quality medical centers including JCI accredited hospitals testifying to the medical skill and facilities. The doctors are well trained and qualified, with many having done advanced studies in the U.S., Canada, U.K. and Europe.

Costa Rica is also famous as a holiday destination because of its climate and green cover, adventure and eco tourism and beaches. It has many excellent medical centers and cosmetic clinics at places like San Jose, Santa Ana, Escazu, Tibas and Liberia across the country. You can choose a place according to the kind of holiday you want to have since dermal fillers are a minimally invasive treatment. Low prices for surgeries and cosmetic treatments add to the lure of Costa Rica.

In the country you can visit one or more of the beaches if you love the water and indulge in water sports like diving, rafting, fishing and swimming. Or you can check out eco tourism by going to natural parks and resorts that offer exotic wildlife and even some endangered species can be found there. In Costa Rica you can also go some of the volcanoes that are big tourist attractions.

How much time do dermal fillers take and what is the expected downtime?

The initial consolation with the doctor is important as you can discuss your goals and he or she can assess your facial condition and decide which products to use (if more than one is required). If testing is required before the treatment, then that should be duly carried out. The actual use of dermal fillers should not take more than half an hour, as the injections usually come pre-filled with the product.

If necessary you may have a topical anesthetic on your face to reduce any possible pain, though many fillers comes mixed with lidocaine. Many of these dermal fillers need specialized injection techniques as some have to be injected under the skin surface and some quite deeply. There is also different after care for each of these fillers. After using some fillers, you should avoid facial movement for some time to prevent the product from moving. On the other hand, after some fillers, it is important to massage several times a day so that the filler works better and does not form lumps or granulomas. That is why it is all the more important to follow medical advice regarding post treatment care.
