If you’re looking for an attractive holiday destination where you can receive affordable wrinkle treatments, Bangkok should definitely make your shortlist.
Doctors in the Thai capital excel in delivering high-quality cosmetic and plastic surgery procedures for reasonable prices, and there are also a myriad of non-surgical options to help reduce or eliminate these signs of ageing.
Find out what's available (and for how much) in Bangkok and book treatment at a background-checked clinic with Medical Departures.
Ageing and accumulated skin damage progressively cause fine lines, creases and folds to develop – also known as wrinkles. The ageing process may be exacerbated by a number of other factors – some of which we have no control over, such as our genetics – and others that we do, such as smoking, diet and sun exposure.
When the collagen in the skin begins to break down, which is a normal part of the ageing 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.
Not all treatments work for all wrinkles and so understanding what specific procedure(s) will work most effectively for your particular problem(s) is 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 ageing. Some other areas on the body, including the skin on the back 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.
Today, there are countless options available in Bangkok to tackle wrinkles and to make them less visible – from surgery, through to the numerous non-surgical treatments. Learn more about these popular wrinkle treatments in Bangkok available at our partner clinics:
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 state-of-the-art 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 with a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure with minimal downtime or something requiring a longer stay, for example, surgery, we can help you find quality clinics and practitioners that have been verified by us.
All verified clinics you see listed on Medical Departures are checked by us, with doctor’s qualifications, professional memberships and international affiliations confirmed.

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.
