Make the most of your vacation to Mexico by undergoing safe and affordable wrinkle treatments in Cancun. Treat your skin to some TLC and head back home looking relaxed and younger—without going over budget.
If those so-called "miracle" creams aren't fulfilling their ambitious promises, it may be time to take advantage of some of the many different non-invasive wrinkle treatments now on the market. Most, such as Botox® and laser skin resurfacing, are quick to administer and have little to no downtime.
For more drastic results, our partner clinics in Cancun also offer a range of surgical procedures that can turn back the years, particularly when it comes targeting loose skin.
As we age, it is only a matter of time before we all succumb to wrinkles and fine lines; however, some of us get more of them (and earlier) than others. This may be partly due to our genetics, something which nothing can be done about.
Other lifestyle factors contribute to the onset of wrinkles, such as stress, too much sun exposure and smoking.
As we age, the ingredients of healthy skin that we have in abundance when we are young begin to decrease. This includes hyaluronic acid (HA) which holds 1,000 times its weight in water, keeping skin plump and moisturized, and collagen, which forms a matrix underneath the skin, keeping it firm. This is why when we hit our late thirties or early forties, our skin becomes drier and we lose that youthful bloom; at the same time, the collagen supporting the skin begins to break down, causing the skin to sink, which is how fine lines, wrinkles and eventually sagging develop.
Many of the popular wrinkle treatments are designed to slow down, improve or stop the appearance of wrinkles – and some can be carried out in less than an hour.
Non-Surgical Wrinkle Treatments
Among the most popular facial wrinkle treatments in Cancun include injectables like Botox, which actually freezes the underlying muscle below a wrinkle to stop it from forming.
Then there are dermal fillers, again administered as an injection, which add volume to wrinkles, plumping them out. Very often they contain ingredients like hyaluronic acid, or collagen stimulators. Some of the main brand names to look out for are:
Skin resurfacing treatments are also popular, and essentially these work like exfoliators, sloughing off dead skin cells and removing old skin layers to reveal newer, blemish-free skin beneath. Dermabrasion, dermal rollers and lasers are used in these treatments, and there are also traditional therapies, such as thread-lifting which are becoming more mainstream.
Surgery for Wrinkles
Surgery is another option you may want to consider, especially if you want to get rid of loose skin around the face and "lift" up certain parts to create a more youthful appearance.
With so many different treatments available, we can’t give an exact price point. However, you are likely to save at least 50% compared to prices in the US. For example, a facelift that may cost $15,000 to $20,000 at home should cost in the region of $6,000 to $8,000 in Cancun.
