Wrinkle Treatments in Malaysia

The Ultimate Guide to Wrinkle Treatments in Malaysia

Last fact-checked: 2 November 2020

No matter how hard we try to ward off the signs of ageing, it's an unfortunate fact of life that our faces will sooner or later start to show fine lines and wrinkles. And while making certain lifestyle choices and using creams can help to a degree, for the best results, you're going to need a professional.  

Our verified clinics across Malaysia offer a range of surgical and non-surgical treatments to eliminate or even eradicate wrinkles for up to 70% less than back home. Keep reading to see how Medical Departures can help you. 

What Causes Wrinkles?

As we age, our body's natural collagen production slows and breaks down. This is the protein that holds bones, muscles, tendons and skin together; when it begins to breakdown, the skin becomes more susceptible to fine lines, which eventually develop into deeper wrinkles.

However, not all wrinkles are created equal. Lifestyle choices, such as sun damage, diet and smoking are all contributing factors, but so too are our genetics, which we have no control over.

What Treatments Are Available to Treat Wrinkles in Malaysia?

There are quite literally hundreds of techniques that can be used to treat wrinkles, although we have summarized some of the most popular ones available at our partner clinics in Malaysia below:

Non-surgical methods:

Botox®This course of tiny injections works by paralyzing facial muscles so that they are unable to contract when we make certain expressions. This helps to eliminate frown lines and Crow's feet, for example. 

Dermal FillersRestylane®, Juvederm® and Radiesse® are just a few of the popular dermal filler brands available in Malaysia. These are injected into deep wrinkles and serve to make them smoother and are usually hyaluronic acid-based.

Chemical PeelsAn acidic solution of varying strengths is applied to the skin to ‘burn’ 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 noticeably 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.

Radiofrequency Waves (RF Therapy): Rather than lasers, radiofrequency waves are used to penetrate deep into the skin; this process stimulates collagen production, which strengthens the skin matrix. Unlike laser treatments, these require no downtime at all and treatment is quite quick.

MicrodermabrasionUsing a special applicator with an abrasive surface, this treatment gently "sands" the outer skin cells. Over time, the rejuvenated skin will appear more toned and smoother. This is particularly good to treat sun-damaged skin, age spots, fine lines and other skin conditions.

Surgical methods: For more invasive action against facial wrinkles, our clinics also offer a range of surgical procedures carried out either in the hospital or an outpatient medical setting. These include:

Many of these treatments can be combined as part of a tailor-made facial rejuvenation. Consult with your doctor or cosmetic surgeon as to what the best course of action is best for you. 

How Long Do Wrinkle Treatments Take?

This depends on the treatment you have selected. Some, like Botox, can be completed in a matter of minutes whereas surgery, such as a facelift, may take several hours.

Our team can provide more information about each procedure, including what it entails, as well as put you in contact with surgeons in Malaysia. 

What About the Recovery Times for Wrinkle Treatments?

Again, this varies. Recovery from surgery can take several months, but after an injectable, any redness or itching should dissipate within 24 hours.

What About the Cost of Wrinkle Treatments Abroad? How Much Can I Save?

In most cases, patients can save at least 50% on both surgical and non-surgical procedures in Malaysia, although savings of 70% are not uncommon.

While it may not be particularly cost-effective going abroad specifically for a treatment like Botox, it may be something you may think about doing if you’re already on holiday, and it will probably cost substantially less than at home.

How Can I Be Sure of the Quality of Wrinkle Treatments Abroad?

Medical tourism is a growing industry, but that is not to say that every clinic offering wrinkle treatments will be trustworthy. Some of these non-surgical procedures are unregulated–even in your own home country.

Booking with us provides you that extra safety net. Medical Departures has more than a decade of experience working with the best clinics and hospitals in dozens of destinations around the world. We only partner with reliable clinics so you are assured of receiving quality care and impressive results. 

Our background checks include:

  • Searching criminal/legal records

  • Collating and publishing real patient reviews

  • Verifying doctor and surgeon qualifications

  • Confirming professional memberships

  • Conducting onsite visits, ensuring that international standards on safety and hygiene are met.
