If you’re looking for THE place to go for wrinkle treatments, Bangkok has got to be it. It has a big reputation for its skill in cosmetic and plastic surgery procedures, but for those who don’t want surgery there is a myriad of non-surgical treatments to help reduce or eliminate these tiresome signs of aging.
Aging and accumulated skin damage progressively causes fine lines, creases and folds to develop – also known as wrinkles. However, the aging process may be exacerbated by a number of other factors – some we have no control over, such as our genetics – but others caused by our lifestyles, including smoking, diet and sun exposure.
Not all treatments work for all wrinkles, and understanding what type of treatments work effectively for your particular problem is the key to achieving the desired result.
Most anti-wrinkle treatments tend to concentrate on the face, but it is not just the face that is susceptible to aging. Some other areas on the body, including the skin on backs of the hands, actually age much quicker than the face, mainly because the skin is much thinner, and there is very little fat on the back of the hands. So, when the collagen in the skin begins to break down, which is a normal part of the aging process, it has a noticeable effect. Crepey, wrinkly skin and hyperpigmentation problems, such as the brown liver spots caused by sun damage are the major giveaway signs of age.
It is not just the backs of hands, but, especially in women, the area known as décolletage, which is the neckline and chest, including the cleavage. This area is vulnerable to sun damage, producing the wrinkly, crepe-like skin that are key indications of age, and is one of the areas where anti-aging treatments are sought.
Today, more than ever, there are countless options available to tackle wrinkles and to make them less visible – from surgery, through to the numerous non-surgical treatments, as well as, of course, the array of creams, potions and lotions we have at our disposal.
Bangkok has a world-renowned reputation for cosmetic surgery – from the smallest nip and tuck to, perhaps, the ultimate in cosmetic procedures – gender reassignment. Modern hospitals are kitted out with cutting-edge technology and the latest surgical equipment and specialist clinics administer non-surgical treatments with proven techniques and well-known brands.
Whether you are considering a quick solution for your wrinkles with a non-invasive non-surgical procedure with minimal downtime, to something requiring a longer stay, for example surgery, we can help you find quality clinics and practitioners that have been verified by us.
The usual checks that a patient can perform when looking for doctors or clinics at home, such as word of mouth, referral, or even a visit to the clinic just don’t exist for an overseas visit. For this reason, Medical Departures has made it our mission to become our patients’ eyes and ears. All verified clinics are checked by us, with doctor’s qualifications, professional memberships and international affiliations confirmed. Clinics are visited personally by our teams, and providing everything is as it should be, the clinic is listed, along with clinic photos and virtual tours so our patients can see for themselves if it’s the kind of place they’d like to have their cosmetic procedures carried out.
For many people, the cost is the initial reason they look to having treatment in Bangkok, but that need not be at the expense of quality. There are great facilities and extremely well qualified surgeons with international credentials - just ensure you choose wisely.
Obviously, the costs vary widely, depending on the treatment you are having, but, for example a facelift in Bangkok costs, on average AUD $10,000, compared to AUD $20,000 in Australia; and a non-surgical treatment, such as Juvederm may be around AUD $500 in Bangkok, compared to AUD $800 in Australia.
