Dermal Fillers in Mexico

The Ultimate Guide to Dermal Fillers in Mexico

Last fact-checked: 7 March 2020

With Medical Departures, you can search for clinics and compare prices for dermal fillers in Mexico. If you’re seeking ways to restore your youthful appearance, but don’t want surgery, a wide variety of injectable treatments can help to plump out wrinkles and reduce the appearance of fine facial lines.

Dermal fillers are typically used as anti-aging products but they can also be used to plump lips, improve scars and enhance the contours of your face.

Why Have Dermal Fillers in Mexico?

While dermal fillers in Mexico cost substantially less than in the United States and Canada, they are relatively inexpensive compared to surgery. It probably isn’t going to be very cost-effective to go specifically to Mexico for dermal filler treatments, unless you are already planning on being in Mexico or you live relatively near the border.

We always recommend that you do a little research before heading abroad, making sure you have your procedure with reliable practitioners at a clinic with a good reputation. This isn’t always easy to do away from home, which is where Medical Departures can help.

Our listings give details of clinics and practitioners we have already background-checked. We look at legal/criminal records, confirm qualifications and perform clinic visits. We also collate real patient testimonials – and all these measures, taken together, provide us with an overall picture of the quality of the clinic and services they offer. If we’re not happy, we don’t list them.

What Types of Dermal Filler Are Available in Mexico and How Do They Work?

There are a variety of dermal fillers available, and the same brands you'll find at home are available in Mexico (as well as new products that are being developed and approved for use all the time). Some are permanent and some are non-permanent, and they can be divided into the following categories:

Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers

These are not permanent, producing a gentle result that fades gradually after a period of months. The advantage is that you can decide when and if you want to have the results topped up. The result usually lasts up to a year, but sometimes longer.

One of the most popular fillers, these contain hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in the body and, therefore, offer good compatibility.

Brands include Restylane, Juvederm and Perlane.

Synthetic Dermal Fillers

The ingredients found in synthetic dermal fillers are not found naturally in the skin. The benefits of these fillers over the hyaluronic acid ones is that they offer longer-lasting results. However, they may also cause an allergic reaction. Some of them are permanent and may cause disfigurement if used incorrectly – with surgery the only way of correcting it.

Brands include Radiesse, Sculptra and Bellafill.

Collagen Dermal Fillers

These products required allergy testing prior to application as they contained collagen from animals, including cows (Zyplast and Zyderm), pigs (Evolence) and a hybrid product (Artefill, aka Artecol in Europe) including tiny plastic spheres and cow collagen. The results only lasted for about a month.

However, new methods have been developed which contain collagen from humans (Cosmoplast and COsmoderm), with some made from your own skin (Autologen and Isolagen) and some from cadaver skin (Dermalogen). They are not permanent, and the results don’t last as long as some other treatments, but they are considered to be more natural-looking.

Dermal fillers obviously do not provide the same dramatic results as one would experience with surgery, although if you have your lips plumped it will more-than-likely be noticeable.

What Does the Treatment Involve for Dermal Fillers?

You will normally be administered local anesthesia prior to the treatment starts. Injection points for each area to be treated are selected and the correct amount of filler drawn into the syringe, which is then injected beneath the skin.

You may experience some discomfort, redness and localized swelling immediately after the treatment but you can resume normal activities immediately. You can apply makeup to disguise the redness, and you should keep out of the sun for a day or two.

Results should be starting to be noticeable after several days.

What Is the Cost of Dermal Fillers in Mexico Compared to the United States and Canada?

Prices are usually quoted as a full syringe, but some may quote for specific areas on the face. It should be noted that some areas, such as the nasolabial folds, usually require two syringes, and that the different types of fillers may be priced differently.

Prices average $400 (CAD $500, £250 GBP, €350, AUD $500) for dermal fillers in Mexico, compared to $625 (CAD $750, £400 GBP, €500, AUD $800) in the United States.
