Sculptra in Mexico City can help erase the signs of aging if you have wrinkles, sagging skin or loss of volume anywhere on your face.
A trip to Mexico City for vacation or business is a great opportunity to also have some affordable cosmetic treatments carried out. One effect, non-invasive option is Sculptra, a dermal filler that helps fill deep lines on the face, like nose-to-mouth lines, wrinkles and even fine lines around the lips (and it can also be used to enhance the lips). It is not only used as a cosmetic product but also used for those who suffer from diseases that cause facial disfigurement.
While most dermal fillers are injected just under the skin, Sculptra is injected a little deeper. It causes an inflammatory response in the body and this helps with collagen production. Collagen is what makes the skin smoother and tighter, reducing or erasing signs of aging, giving you a more youthful appearance. Results after a series of treatments can last around two years and since Sculptra is made from a biocompatible material, the risk of allergic reactions is low.
When you live in the U.S. or Canada, going to Mexico City for a holiday is both easy and affordable thanks to daily direct flights from most major cities. If you live closer to the border, driving is another option as are buses and trains from some towns. Mexico City is an attractive tourist destination thanks to its much warmer climate and the many tourist attractions that are in the city or not too far away.
You can visit monuments, museums and cultural sites that are centuries old; you also can check out the Teotihuacan pyramids, a 2,300-year-old UNESCO World Heritage Site. Mexico City has numerous day trips that you can take for sightseeing and you can also take part in various food tours. The place is famous for its shopping malls, department stores and local flea markets for shopping that suits all budgets. From many countries, you do not need a visa to travel to Mexico.
It is always important to ensure any cosmetic treatment is performed by a board-certified doctor for the best results and to ensure your safety. If you book on your own, you will not be able to check out the antecedents of the doctors or clinics. Many people have had bad experiences even with superficial cosmetic treatments so you should not take any risk.
Medical Departures offers safety and the best price guarantee. We check out the accreditations and qualifications, the experience and skills of the doctors and clinics we list on our website. We also make sure that the clinics and hospitals follow all international treatment protocols and have an ambiance that you are used to. This gives you an added layer of protection and reduces the risk of having a bad experience.

Like other dermal fillers, Sculptra is injected into pre-determined areas that need to be treated. The difference here is that Sculptra is injected much deeper into the skin, using a special injecting technique that the doctor should be familiar with. The doctor should also use less of the product as it can be topped up later; if more is used, the results may not be what you want.
After the injections, a massage technique is carried out to evenly distribute the product. In fact, you will be required to massage regularly so that no lumps form.
After treatment, it is possible that you have some pain, swelling and bruising for some time, but it will only be uncomfortable and not debilitating. You can use ice packs or cold compresses to reduce the swelling and bruising - although you should find you can resume most of your normal activities on the same day.
Results will take six weeks to become fully apparent, after which time a doctor can decide how many more treatments are required. This is because Sculptra works best with more than one treatment (usually around six are recommended at certain intervals).
In the US, you can expect to pay between USD 600 to USD 2,000 depending on how many injections you need and the area you live in. In Mexico City at one of our partner clinics, you'll pay a starting price of just USD 300.
