Looking at wrinkle treatments in Phuket? Find out what’s available with Medical Departures and discover how you can turn back the hands of time during your holiday.
Phuket is one of the world’s favourite destinations for health and wellbeing holidays. You can take your pick from top-quality spa facilities and return home feeling pampered and looking rejuvenated.
If you’re looking at ways to make yourself look and feel better then you might be tempted to know what else is available out there to combat those dreaded wrinkles. Most people are more concerned about the lines and wrinkles on their faces, but there are wrinkle treatments that can tackle other areas of the body, including backs of hand, décolletage and even butts!
Wrinkle treatments may be performed in hospitals, clinics or salons, depending on the nature of the particular procedure. Phuket has been catering to international patients for decades and offers good-quality, hygienic and safe facilities that conform to international regulations. You should always have surgery in a hospital or a reliable clinic and always do a little research as the qualifications and skills of the practitioners.
Treatments generally fall into the categories or surgical and non-surgical treatments, although some of the lines these days are blurry.
These include cosmetic surgery for the face and body. Facial cosmetic surgery such as a facelift is probably the most radical of the surgical options and targets the whole face, although there are mini lifts and lower lifts now that target specific areas, such as the lower face. There are even more targeted options if, for example, it’s only eye wrinkles that are an issue, then you can get eyelid or eyebag surgery, such as blepharoplasty.
Contemporary solutions are about finding the right balance for each individual and individuals can opt for a pick-and-mix approach of surgical and non-surgical treatments to produce the optimum benefit for their particular circumstances. This is true of facial wrinkle treatments, but also body treatments too.
Mommy Makeovers are the prime example of the pick-and-mix approach. This procedure is actually a mixture of several different surgeries, targeting those parts of the body that are often affected by childbirth – typically the tummy and breasts but the procedure can include butt, thigh, back and arm surgery too.
Non-surgical wrinkle treatments is a growing area as new technologies are being developed all the time. Treatments like chemical peels, laser resurfacing and microdermabrasion can improve skin texture on the face. Injection treatments, such as Botox and dermal fillers, are ever popular, providing a quick and easy, if temporary, fix to facial wrinkles.
Treatments for the body include laser therapies and radiofrequency treatments, such as Thermage.
Well-known as a holiday destination, it has much going for it in terms of infrastructure and services, as well as all its beautiful beaches and other tourist attractions. Phuket offers the complete package in terms of health, wellbeing, spa centres, massage outlets, beauty clinics and surgery. It is a hub for international visitors and is renowned for delivering good quality, expertise and affordable prices.
Obviously the prices are a big draw for international clients – it is considerably cheaper here for most Westerners. We wouldn’t advocate throwing caution to the wind, and always advise that if you are having any kind of treatments that you do your own research first. Even so-called non-invasive (non-surgical) treatments should still be administered by trained practitioners.
At Medical Departures you can rely on our listings as we take the time to pay onsite visits to our clinics, as we as verifying professional memberships and qualifications of doctors, check for criminal and legal records and collect real testimonials to publish on our site. While no treatment can ever be guaranteed successful no matter where in the world you go, at least knowing your clinic and doctor has the right credentials will stand you in good stead.
This varies depending on the nature of the procedure. Surgery obviously requires a lot more consideration and may involve several days in hospital but some non-surgical procedures, such as Botox and dermal fillers, can be performed in a matter of moments.
Again, it really depends on what treatment you have but most people can save over 50%. Facelifts, for example, can cost around AUD $6,000 in Phuket, compared to an average of AUD $23,000 in Australia.
