Wrinkle Treatments in Kuala Lumpur

The Ultimate Guide to Wrinkle Treatments in Kuala Lumpur

Last fact-checked: 9 November 2020

Wrinkle treatments in Kuala Lumpur are a cost-effective way of making your skin look and feel younger. If you're planning a holiday or business trip to Kuala Lumpur, or you're already in the Malaysian capital, you can make savings of up to 70% at one of our background-checked clinics.

By our mid-thirties or forties, we start to notice fine lines and wrinkles becoming more and more pronounced. While you can take good care of your skin, such as using various high-end skin products, this only delays the inevitable and doesn't work on all skin types.

Among the factors that cause and exacerbate wrinkles are:

  • Genetics
  • Stress and worry
  • Smoking
  • Pollution
  • The natural ageing process

Why Undergo Wrinkle Treatment in Kuala Lumpur?

Kuala Lumpur is a favourite holiday destination that welcomes millions of international visitors every year. It is in the heart of Southeast Asia, with much to offer the tourist including local attractions, historic temples, museums, gardens, parks, sanctuaries and forest reserves.

If time is on your side, you can also use the city as a base to explore the rest of this fascinating country, with destinations like Penang, the Genting Highlands, the Cameron Highlands, Langkawi island, Melacca or even Singapore (just across the water in the south) all accessible via road or air.

You will discover numerous reputable clinics and hospitals in KL and the city has been hosting medical tourists for many years. Doctors and surgeons are well qualified and many have received degrees and certifications from western countries. 

Why Book with Medical Departures? 

When booking on your one, it is often difficult to be sure that the clinic you choose is recognised with an international organisation or that it is not hiding any secrets in terms of negative reviews. As the city is teeming with salons and clinics that promise you the moon at cheap rates, you should not take a chance with your skin and have a negative experience.

When booking through Medical Departures, we only recommend clinics and hospitals that we have thoroughly investigated. We make sure that all of the medical staff we work with are well qualified and hold the necessary qualifications to carry out each and every procedure that they offer. We also carry out onsite checks to verify that facilities are indeed modern, hospitable and that the staff can communicate in English. 

What Kinds of Wrinkle Treatments Are Available in Kuala Lumpur?

Different wrinkle treatments use different methods of removing wrinkles. Among the procedures that can be found at our clinics in KL are:

  • Botox®: injected into areas that exhibit wrinkles and lines when the face makes expressions, botox paralyses the muscles under the skin, resulting in the skin looking smoother.
  • Dermal fillers: these include a host of different brand names, like Juvederm®, Bellafill® and Restylane®. When injected, the serum works by "filling-up" the wrinkles, resulting in smoother-looking skin.
  • Thermage: this uses radiofrequency waves (RF therapy) to stimulate collagen production in deeper layers of the skin, resulting in wrinkle-free skin.
  • Laser treatment: hot and cold lasers going by names like Titan®, Fraxel®, Re-Firme®, Accent®, N-Lite® use various techniques to tighten and tone the skin.
  • Dermabrasion: different dermabrasion techniques are used to exfoliate the skin and rejuvenate it; the new skin cells that appear in time create a smoother and firmer appearance.
  • Chemical peels: FDA-approved acid solutions of varying strengths are applied to the skin under controlled conditions. These burn away the top layer and the new skin is younger and tauter.

Always consult with a medical professional as to which procedure is right for you. Recommended treatment will depend on your particular skin condition and what you hope to achieve. Sometimes, a combination of treatments may work best.

Most of these treatments take about between 30 and 60 minutes and require little or no downtime time. 

What Is the Cost of Wrinkle Treatments in Kuala Lumpur?

Cost varies a great deal and depends upon what treatment you desire for your skin. Botox and fillers may be charged per unit for use, for example. 

In general, patients can expect to save between 50% and 70% on any of the wrinkle treatments mentioned above at one of our verified clinics in Kuala Lumpur (compared to average prices in Western countries).
