Wrinkle Treatments

The Ultimate Guide to Wrinkle Treatments

Last fact-checked: 9 September 2020

Whether it's in our late twenties, thirties—or for the very fortunate—early forties, the onset of wrinkles is inevitable, and in many cases, loose skin and lines can make us look much older than we actually feel. 

Certain creams and positive lifestyle choices, such as avoiding sun exposure and smoking, can help to a degree; however, for the best results, there really is only one answer: professional treatment carried out in a medical setting.  

Our background-checked clinics across the word offer an array of surgical and non-surgical options to reduce wrinkles—and the best part? You can expect to pay up to 70% less than back home. 

What Causes Wrinkles?

As we get older, the body's collagen production slows down. This protein is essential for keeping skin looking young and firm. Decreased production of other natural oils and elements, such as hyaluronic acid (HA) dehydrates the skin, leaving it much more prone to wrinkles and fine lines. 

As previously mentioned, other lifestyle factors that contribute to wrinkles include exposure to ultraviolet light, stress, repeated facial expressions and smoking. 

What Treatments Are Available at Our Global Clinics?

Some of the most popular non-surgical and surgical wrinkle treatments are summarized below:

Non-surgical methods:

Botox®

This course of injections works by paralyzing certain muscles rendering them unable to contract when we make expressions. This helps to eliminate things like fine lines and crow's feet

Dermal Fillers

Restylane®, Juvederm® and Radiesse® are some of the most popular dermal filler brands available at our global clinics. These are injected into deep wrinkles and serve to make them smoother. They normally work by replenishing collagen or hyaluronic acid (HA) that are both naturally found in the skin. 

Chemical Peels

An acidic solution of varying strengths is applied to the skin which essentially peels off the top layer. The deeper the peel, the more red and painful it will be. However, once the skin heals, you can expect to have firmer, younger-looking skin.

Laser Skin Resurfacing  

This treatment is generally used for lines around the forehead, cheeks and lips. Different kinds of lasers penetrate the skin to remove layers; as the skin heals, new skin cells will form leading to a firmer, younger-looking appearance. Face treatments can usually be done in one session, taking between 30 and 60 minutes.

Microdermabrasion

Using a special applicator with an abrasive surface, this treatment essentially blasts away tiny outer skin cells that are then vacuumed up. Over time, the rejuvenated skin will appear more toned and smoother. This works well on sun-damaged skin, age spots, fine lines and other skin conditions.

Chemical Peels

An acidic solution of varying strengths is applied to the skin which essentially peels off the top layer. The deeper the peel, the more red and painful it will be. However, once the skin heals, you can expect to have firmer, younger-looking skin.

Surgical methods:

Our global clinics also offer a range of invasive procedures that are carried out in a professional outpatient clinic or a hospital. These include:

  • Eyelid surgery
  • Forehead lift
  • Eyebrow lifts
  • Facelifts (full or partial)
  • Eye bag removal
  • Neck lift

Certain treatments can be combined as part of a tailor-made facial rejuvenation. Do ask a doctor or cosmetic surgeon as to what the best course of treatment would work best for you.
