Frown lines, laughter lines, crow’s feet–they’re all normal–but as we get older these once fine lines become progressively deeper, forming those dreaded wrinkles. Certain lifestyle factors like smoking and sun exposure contribute to the appearance of wrinkles, while genetics, which we have no control over, can also be a cause.
While no-one can stop the aging process, there are ways we can minimize the appearance of wrinkles. From over-the-counter creams and serums to beauty treatments and cosmetic surgery–it’s often difficult to know where to start.
In this guide, we look at some of the top wrinkle treatments available in Mexico—pointing you in the direction of some excellent clinics within easy reach for people based in North America thanks to convenient flight links and dedicated medical tourism lanes at the border.
Most wrinkle treatments target the face and neck areas, but others can help you achieve rewarding results elsewhere on the body, such as the backs of the hands. Whether you are interested in having surgery to combat wrinkles, or something a little less invasive, you’ll find treatment for wrinkles in Mexico to be considerably less expensive than at home.
The same wrinkle treatments available at home in terms of surgical treatments and brand names (such as Botox) are all readily available at our partner clinics in Mexico. Roughly, we can group them into surgical and non-surgical treatments:

People travel to Mexico for surgical and non-surgical wrinkle treatments mainly because of the cost savings–with most treatments costing around 50%-70% lower than in the US.
The key to getting the best treatment in Mexico is to decide what you want to achieve and then carry out your own research. We can’t stress enough how important it is to find a reputable clinician and/or surgeon to help you achieve the look you are after, safely.
