Reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles with Juvederm in Mexico. This range of injectable dermal filler treatments adds volume to plump out your skin and diminish those wrinkles. Containing Hyaluronic Acid (HA), the carbohydrate found naturally in our skin, it produces instant results which last for up to a year.
Juvederm is available at our quality-checked clinics all over Mexico – with prices considerably lower than you’d pay at home.
The active ingredient in Juvederm, hyaluronic acid, is found in many areas in the human body – in the skin, the eyes and the joints. It is a lubricant and moisturizer, retaining more than 1000 times its weight in water. Babies have lots of HA, but as we get older our bodies produce less of it, especially over the age of 40. Our skin is naturally plumped up with this super moisturizer, and once it starts to diminish that’s when facial lines and wrinkles start to appear. Juvederm replaces lost HA, adding volume to the skin to smooth away unwanted lines.
It works best on static lines – those you can see while your face is still, rather than expression lines.
It probably isn’t going to be cost-effective to go on a cosmetic holiday to Mexico solely for Juvederm treatment, although you will save some money. However, if you do live near to the US-Mexico border then it could well be worth your while to make a special trip. You can easily save a couple of hundred dollars per syringe – and if you are having treatment to an area that requires two syringes then the savings are fairly substantial.
Although Mexico has had a bad rap in the past for the quality of its medical and dental services, times have moved on, and Mexico can now boast top quality facilities that rival the best anywhere in the world.
Medical tourism is a growth industry, and it is gaining in popularity because the services and the expertise are so good. Just as anywhere else in the world, Mexico adheres to international standards on hygiene and safety, medical training is on a par with developed nations and the same brands, equipment and technology are all available and used here.
We wouldn’t say that everywhere in the country conforms to the standards expected by Western visitors, but certainly clinics who are used to treating medical tourists do – which is why you should always do a little fact-finding yourself before booking an appointment. It’s a lot easier to do with the internet these days, and even if you can find little else, you can usually find some reviews from past patients – which are a good place to start when evaluating a particular clinic or doctor.
Medical Departures knows this is an important part of the process in having successful treatment abroad. This is why part of our remit has always been to check, verify, confirm and do our background research on doctors qualifications, professional memberships and pending or past litigation. We visit clinics, and seek out patient testimonials, actively encouraging all our patients to send us their reviews once they have seen one of our doctors. We publish these on our website, unedited, whether they are good, bad or indifferent. We aim for transparency, and make this information freely available to all, so they can form their own conclusions.
Injections take between 15 and 60 minutes, depending on the areas to be treated. A local anesthetic is usually administered to make the experience more comfortable and the Juvederm is injected into the skin using a fine needle.
You may experience some temporary side-effects for a couple of days, including swelling, redness and tenderness, but you will be able to return to your normal activities straight after your treatment. You can even put make-up on right away if you want to cover the redness.
The results should be immediately noticeable, but you should have a better picture after a few weeks. You can always come back for top-up treatments.
Treatment is usually priced by the syringe, with some areas on the face requiring two. The average cost of Juvederm in Mexico is around $275 (CAD $330, GBP £175, Euros 240, AUD $350). In the US, the average price is around $500 (CAD $600, GBP £320, Euros 450, AUD $650).
