Why Choose Tijuana for Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Medical lasers are now commonly used to correct all sorts of problems, from yellow teeth to fixing visual acuity. Skin resurfacing is another benefit of laser technology that can be used to improve the look and texture of the skin. It can help with wrinkles, lines, scarring, sun damage and pigmentation issues.

Tijuana’s top clinics are well-placed to receive international clients. Airports at Tijuana and nearby San Diego make it easily accessible for travelers who are flying in, and its position on the US-Mexico border also makes it the perfect location to drive if you are coming from Southern California. And with great shopping, dining and nightlife options, you can even make a few days of it, squeezing in a mini-vacation before your treatment. 

Why Should I Book Through Medical Departures?

Laser skin resurfacing is a surgical procedure, and that means that your choice of surgeon should be considered very carefully. The Mexican border city of Tijuana does have expertise across many medical and surgical areas, but you should always do a little checking yourself, for instance by checking qualifications and professional memberships—as these are indicators that your surgeon has the necessary skills to carry out the procedure.

Booking through Medical Departures will give you an added layer of protection. Our providers are all quality-checked; we verify qualifications, professional memberships and look for any criminal or legal proceedings. If everything stacks up, we then look at patient testimonials and carry out onsite visits before their name is featured on our site. Together, these processes provide a clear picture of reliability, enabling our patients to make an informed choice.

What Is the Procedure for Laser Skin Resurfacing?

This depends on a number of factors, including whether you are having the whole face done, or just a particular area.

There are also several different types of laser used as part of this procedure, including the ablative laser, which removes the upper layers of skin, as can the non-ablative laser, which is used to stimulate collagen production, one of the essential building blocks of healthy skin.

Depending on the nature of your procedure you may be given a local or a general anesthetic and the procedure may take up to two hours for the full face, or 30 minutes for a specific area.

What Is the Recovery Time From Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Swelling is normal and you will have to clean the treated area several times each day, applying creams to stop scabs from forming. The treated areas may feel itchy and hot, like sunburn, for a few days and then dry and peeling after about five days. The skin will start to heal properly after two to three weeks but light redness may still be visible for over a month.
