Save on Radiesse in Tijuana, a popular dermal filler treatment that's available at many of our quality-checked clinics in this Mexican border town.
Radiesse can smooth skin, enhance cheeks and jawline, minimize folds and lines, including marionette and nasolabial folds, and can also be used on the backs of the hands to replenish skin and add volume.
Whether you’re vacationing or just visiting Tijuana, this treatment can be performed in a matter of moments to give you a healthier and younger look.
Radiesse works on two fronts. It stimulates your body’s own production of collagen – one of the essential components of firm, healthy skin. Secondly, the product contains microspheres that are identical to minerals found naturally in the body, which adds volume to fill out lines, wrinkles, sagging and hollows.
North Americans have been traveling to Tijuana for decades for lower prices on pharmaceuticals, and that now extends to medical, dental and cosmetic procedures, such as facial fillers.
Tijuana is close to the border and is easily accessible, particularly if you are driving with a Fast Pass which allows you to cut out a significant portion of the traffic waiting at the border crossing.
You can usually save a few hundred dollars on one Radiesse treatment area in Tijuana, so if you are having more than one area treated, the savings are substantial.
Tijuana has truly embraced medical tourism, with an ever-growing number of top good-quality clinics that follow internationally-recognized safety procedures working with teams of highly-skilled surgeons, doctors and practitioners who have the necessary training and qualifications.
We always recommend doing your own due diligence – and finding out as much as you can about the treatment you’d like, as well as verifying the credentials and the practitioners and clinics.

The treatment is injected directly into the skin using a fine-needled syringe. A local anesthetic is usually administered into the chosen injection sites to help numb the area before the treatment begins.
Depending on how many areas are being treated, the time it takes is between 15 minutes to an hour.
Mild after-effects may include localized redness, swelling, bruising and itching but they will disappear soon enough and your face should be back to normal in a day or two. You’ll be able to continue with your normal activities straight after treatment.
The positive effects of Radiesse should be immediately noticeable, but it could take up to three weeks before they develop fully. The treatment is temporary, but effects can last for up to a year, after which you can always have top-ups.
Typical costs for Radiesse in Tijuana are around $300 (CAD $370, GBP £190, €260, AUD $390) compared to around $500 in the United States (CAD $600, GBP £300, €450, AUD $650).
