Enhance your skin and diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with Sculptra in Tijuana, Mexico. In this famous border city, you can make decent savings on a single vial of this product; with most treatments requiring three vials, your savings can quickly add up to a couple of thousand dollars.
Sculptra is a type of injectable dermal filler designed to work on static lines and wrinkles, as opposed to active lines and wrinkles. Static lines refer to the lines that are present on your face regardless of the facial expression you pull—unlike “active” wrinkles that appear when you pull a certain expression. In time, active wrinkles become static wrinkles, which is why so many people take steps to prevent this by using products, such as with botulinum toxin injection (eg. Botox).
Botulinum toxins do not work on static wrinkles, which is where injectable dermal fillers come in.
Sculptra is made from a synthetic material, poly-L-lactic acid, that is readily absorbed by the body. This helps to rebuild collagen, one of the proteins required for building healthy skin that diminishes as we get older.
These days, it seems as though everyone is doing their best to look good, whether it’s as simple as following a clean diet, or getting fillers or pursuing a more drastic action, like invasive cosmetic surgery.
One obstacle in your fight against the signs of age may well be money—and you aren’t alone. We all know that beauty care is an expensive business, with some surgical procedures running into five figures and injections, like Sculptra, often unaffordable back home.
Savvy North Americans have been making their way over the US-Mexico border for decades—now in search of discount prices for goods and services; from pharmaceuticals to cosmetic surgery and even fertility treatments, Mexican border cities like Tijuana offer quality service alongside the chance to make substantial savings.
Tijuana is easily accessible via two international airports at San Diego and Tijuana You can also easily drive there, either using the medical lanes to bypass the queues at the Border entry or parking up on the US side and taking an onward shuttle, taxi or pickup service. It is so easy that day-trippers now represent a sizable portion of Tijuana’s visitors, including those who are undergoing medical and dental procedures (rather than just Americans going to pick up cheap medication).
Our verified medical and dental care providers in Tijuana deliver the standard of service and quality that clients from North America expect. Staff are English-speaking, offering high standards when it comes to customer care, expertise and hygiene standards that meet international recommendations.
Prices are usually at least 50% lower than back home, too—a real incentive for many considering a trip south of the border.
The treatment doesn’t take very long at all; it only involves injections into the area(s) to be treated. In some cases, it is all over in less than half an hour.
Sculptra treatments are not designed to give you an immediately noticeable result, but rather to stimulate the growth of collagen deep within the skin’s layers, which will add volume and firmness to the skin. The collagen cycle takes six weeks and so you will notice a very subtle change after four to six weeks. It is recommended that you do three treatments with four to six weeks’ wait between each one to give you the optimal results.
The cost of Sculptra in Tijuana is around $250 per one vial. Three vials are generally needed for a single course of treatment, which amounts to around $750 in total.
The same course of Sculptra treatment costs around $900 per vial in the United States, or $2,700 in total, representing savings of around 70%. [Please note: these are average price comparisons calculated at the time of writing.]
