Planning on dermal fillers in Tijuana? If you want to combat the signs of ageing without surgery these quick injection treatments can help you achieve younger-looking skin without going under the surgeon’s knife.
There are several different types of filler – some permanent; others not – that can be used to minimize fine lines and wrinkles, but they are also useful for improving the look of scars, adding volume to lips and creating definition.
If you are visiting Tijuana, or you’re an American living reasonably near the US-Mexico border, dermal filler treatments in Tijuana are likely to save you at least a couple of hundred bucks.
Tijuana has a long history of providing cost-effective medical, dental and now beauty treatments to its visiting neighbors, and many people who do travel here for treatments are more than happy with the services they receive, and regularly come back for follow-up treatments.
Long gone are the days of clinics in Mexico offering inferior standards of care and dubious quality. Most practitioners who do treat international visitors are more than up-to-date with their qualifications and training, and are keen to offer services and facilities that their visitors are used to at home.
However, we always maintain that anyone considering any kind of medical or beauty treatments abroad should always do their homework. Yes, there are many great facilities, but it’s always worthwhile taking that little bit of time to know that the facilities you choose have verifiable credentials.
With Medical Departures, you can see at a glance photos and virtual tours of clinics, qualifications of practitioners, professional memberships and real patient reviews, giving you a reasonably good overview so you can choose in confidence.
Dermal fillers are injected into the skin – usually the face – and they work by rejuvenating the skin to restore volume and minimize wrinkles, lines and folds. This can be achieved by replacing or replenishing depleted substances in our skin, which over time gradually diminish and/or by stimulating our own bodies to produce more of these beneficial substances.
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a naturally-occurring substance found in the skin, which transfers essential nutrients and binds water molecules. It is like nature’s sponge, holding many times its own weight in water, and giving the skin a dewy, youthful appearance.
As we get older, our bodies produce less of it, and so dermal fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm and Perlane help to restore it. They are non-permanent with initial results fading gradually over a period of months. They can be topped-up once the results begin to wear off.
Collagen is another substance that starts to decrease as we age. In young, healthy skin it forms a tight support network underneath the skin layers. As collagen production slows down, this network begins to break down, causing fine lines and wrinkles to appear, which eventually leads to sagging.
Collagen fillers helps to replace collagen, thus restoring the support structure beneath the skin. Products containing collagen include Cosmoplast, Dermalogen, Autologen and Isolagen which are made from human skin. There are others made from animal collagen, but they do require you are allergy tested before administration.
This group of dermal fillers contain ingredients that aren’t found naturally in the body, but are made in the lab. The results usually last longer than hyaluronic acid fillers, and may even be permanent. For this reason, they must be administered with care by a professional as they can cause permanent damage in the wrong hands. Radiesse, Sculptra and Bellafill are some of the brand names available.
Procedures may vary slightly, but your chosen filler is administered by a fine needle syringe into the appropriate areas. Each injection only takes seconds, and so the procedure can be over in a matter of minutes, depending on the number of sites you have done.
Virtually none. You can go back to your daily activities straight after treatment. You may experience a little redness, but that wears off after a few hours.
Dermal fillers are sometimes quoted for specific areas, for example, the nasolabial folds, or per syringe – so you will need to check what you are getting for the price as, for example, nasolabial folds typicaly requires two syringes.
The different brand’s prices may not be the same either, but as a rough estimate dermal fillers in Tijuana cost around $400 (CAD $500, £250 GBP, €350, AUD $500), compared to $625 (CAD $750, £400 GBP, €500, AUD $800) in the United States.
