Looking for wrinkle treatments in Thailand? There’s so many available, that it’s hard to know where to start. Medical Departures can help you find quality-checked practitioners to improve your skin and turn back the clock.
As we age, collagen production slows (the essential protein in building healthy skin, tissue and bone) which causes fine lines to develop as a result of sagging skin. Unfortunately, the force of gravity means that everything eventually begins to head south. We also develop lines on our faces due to the same reason, but expression lines, which are normal, such as laughter lines and frown lines, also become deeper as we get older.
Smoking, sun exposure and genetics all play a part, but we can help to diminish the look of wrinkles with a range of treatments.
We’ve all tried over-the-counter products but cosmetic surgery and other non-surgical treatments are becoming increasingly popular. The face and neck areas are the most common areas for treatment, but other areas of the body can be targeted too – such as the backs of the hands, or the chest area (décolletage).
Essentially any treatment you can get at home, you can find in Thailand - and in most cases, for at least half the price. Below, we have summarized some of the most popular wrinkle treatments available at our partner clinics throughout Thailand.
Surgical Wrinkle Treatments in Thailand:
Thailand is the world’s favourite cosmetic surgery destination. Sagging, wrinkly skin on the body can be corrected by a variety of surgical procedures, such as tummy tucks and body, butt and arm lifts.
Facial cosmetic surgery popular in Thailand includes full facelifts (rhytidectomy) and lower facelifts, which targets below the nose. However, not everyone is inclined or needs a facelift and there are more specific procedures aimed at problem areas, like the eyes, where eye bag removal, a brow lift or upper and/or lower eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) can improve the appearance of wrinkles there.
Many of the surgical treatments are used in conjunction with non-surgical wrinkle treatments as part of a facial rejuvenation procedure.
Non-Surgical Wrinkle Treatments in Thailand:
There are plenty of options for non-surgical wrinkle treatments if you prefer to go down that route. Many have a minimal amount of downtime and can be performed in a matter of minutes.
This includes the injectables, for example, Botox (a neurotoxin, which freezes the muscle underlying the wrinkle), and dermal fillers, such as Restylane (which plumps out the skin and ‘fills’ the wrinkle). To change the texture of the skin, resurfacing treatments, such as laser skin resurfacing, dermabrasion, chemical peels and dermal rolling can improve the look of fine lines and promote healthier-looking skin.
