Facial wrinkles may be the bane of all our lives, and while, at one time not too long ago, the facelift was pretty-much the only option, now we have all sorts of surgical and non-surgical treatments to choose from.
Whether you want surgery, or one of the non-surgical procedures for your facial wrinkles, in Mexico you’ll certainly make some huge savings.
All the same brand-name treatments (eg. Botox, Restylane etc) are offered by clinics in Mexico, as well as the different types of cosmetic surgery treaments.
The facelift (rhytidectomy) is probably the biggest procedure. It improves a number of signs of aging, including sagging, loose skin around the neck, chin and jowls, as well as creases and/or wrinkles extending from the nose to the mouth and around the eyes. The surgery lifts the facial skin, underlying muscle and tissues to make the face smoother and tighter. It is often done in combination with other procedures (surgical and/or non-surgical as part of a facial rejuvenation procedure.
If a facelift seems like too much, there is always a lower face lift which improves the area below the nose, including the neck area, and there always specific procedures to target smaller areas. These could be the eye area, such as a brow lift, which smoothes wrinkles across the forehead, and eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), to either the upper, lower or both eyelids; or a necklift, targeting wattle (turkey) neck and double chins.
This is one of the growth areas in treating facial wrinkles as beauty and scientific products are combined in a range of ‘cosmeceuticals’. Most of these plump or resurface the skin to minimise lines and wrinkles. However, care must be taken with these products and procedures that they will target the specific problem you want to minimize. Also just as with any surgery, some of these treatments are permanent, and they carry a small risk. You should think very carefully and do your research thoroughly before you embark on any treatment.
These are some of the quickest procedures you can have done – most in a matter of minutes. Injectable treatments include neurotoxins, like Botox, which freezes the underlying muscle. They are effective for lines produced by facial expressions, such as frown lines, or crow’s feet, but not for lines that do not alter in appearance when you change your expression. Botox is not permanent and to-ups will be required every few months.
The other injectables include dermal fillers. Dermal fillers can be used on other lines, plumping up the skin to make it fuller and smoother. They can also be permanent or temporary. Permanent fillers won’t adapt to further changes in your face as you get older and are not as common as the temporary fillers. Fillers can last from 3 months upwards, and will require top-up treatments if you want the effects to last.
These treatments are used to improve the texture of your skin by regenerating new skin growth and/or helping product penetration. It is said that only 5% of any product put onto the skin is absorbed, so anything that enables the product to get deeper into the skin should be more effective.
Laser resurfacing removes the outer layers of skin and stimulates the growth of new collagen (the protein responsible for building skin, bone and soft tissues).
Chemical peels removes the damaged outer layers of the skin, revealing smoother, improved skin underneath.
Dermabrasion takes off the top layer of damaged skin to reveal smoother underneath.
Dermal rollering punctures minute holes all over your face with a roller spiked with microfine needles. The needles come in different lengths but the premise behind it works in two ways:
1: the needles produce tiny injuries deep beneath the surface of the skin, which promotes the growth of collagen
2: up to 2 hours after rollering the needles create open channels where around 70% of any products put on the face will be absorbed deep into the skin (which is considerably more than 5% the usual 5%).
