Take a look at the best 5 Non Surgery procedures you can find in Mexico and a few tips on how to take care of your skin after every treatment.

Dermal Fillers

In case you are looking for an effective non- invasive procedure that can help you remove wrinkles and add volume to different parts of your face, dermal fillers might be the right option for you.

Fillers are administered by small injections of hyaluronic acid. This is a substance that is naturally present in the human body such as our eyes and joints and can be extracted from rooster combs or made in a laboratory by bacteria.

There are different types of fillers you could get to have more volume and a smoother appearance in your skin:

  • Lip Fillers. Used for people who have wrinkles, fine lines in the mouth area, thin lips or just want to improve the appearance of them by adding more shape, volume, and structure.
  • Nose Job. People tend to get this cosmetic procedure to reshape their nose, whether it is too big or wide for their face, has a bump on the bridge of their nose, or is crooked either by injury or in a natural way
  • Wrinkle Fillers. This type of fillers will relax the muscles under your wrinkles and fills the lines. It can give you a more youthful look for only a fraction of the cost of a facelift.
  • Under Eye Fillers. One of the best ways of restoring the volume of your eye area is this type of fillers. It reduces the appearance of hollow eyes, puffy eyes and dark circles. They can also help you to hydrate the skin from the inside, leading to skin quality and collagen production.
  • Nasolabial Folds Fillers. It will help you to smooth the deep wrinkles that run from the nose to your mouth, also known as the “smile line”, making them much less apparent, giving you a more youthful look.
  • Smokers Lines Fillers. They are used commonly to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It diminishes the famous worry lines and smoker’s lines, improving the smile line grooves and lip enhancement.

The amount of substance injected will be controlled by your doctor depending on how much volume would you like to get.

Part of the recovery for most of the procedures include to avoid movements or massages on the area a filler was injected, all kinds of exercise for 24 hours prior to your treatment and also, extensive sun or heat for 72 hours, that way you can get the amazing results faster and with no recovery problems like swelling.

Even though the results from a Dermal Filler are not going to be permanent, they can be reasonably long-lasting.

Facial Botox

If you would only like to remove fine lines and wrinkles from your face to have a youthful appearance, this is probably the procedure that best suits you.

Botox is a substance, that cosmetically speaking, inhibits the muscle movement to prevent wrinkles from appearing or get bigger. It basically freezes the muscle movement by blocking neurotransmitters and stopping the aging process.

It is injected into specific muscles based on the patient’s desired results, using a narrow-gauge needle. The great part is that anesthesia is not even required, and patients who have used this treatment have only expressed a minor discomfort at most.

This treatment will stop the aging process a period of time from 4 to 6 months. This means that in order to keep its curative effects, you will need to administer it a few times a year. However, if you decide to leave it, your muscles will begin to function normally and your aging process will resume.

If you decide to go for this treatment here are a few recommendations once the Botox is administered to have the results we are hoping for:

  • Don’t manipulate the treated area for at least 3 hours prior to your treatment.
  • Avoid any other facial or laser procedures for at least 10 days from the day you first got this procedure.
  • Try to not lie down from 4 hours once Botox is administered. This prevents the liquid from going into the orbit of your eye, causing a drooping eyelid.
  • Avoid all activities that involve exercise or heavy lifting 6 hours prior to your treatment to help keep the liquid in its place and not elsewhere.

It is important to mention that it can take from 7 to 10 days for the results to become noticeable after the treatment. Once it’s done, you will see wrinkles turn to smoother skin, and since new wrinkles will be prevented, your face will have a younger and beautiful appearance.

Microneedling with PRP

If you are only trying to minimize the signs of aging by removing age spots, wrinkles scars and other types of hyperpigmentation in your face, micro-needling with Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is the treatment for you!

PRP injections help you to lift spots from your skin and help you heal faster from this treatment, that is why is normally used on a micro-needling. This treatment opens channels into the skin to stimulate new collagen production, allowing good penetration of the PRP solution. That is why this procedure is also known as collagen induction therapy.

Using a derma roller or an FDA approved device, a doctor is able to start this procedure, once local anesthesia is applied, by moving in sweeping or circular motions.

With a syringe, a little bit of blood will be drawn, normally from your arm, while the anesthesia is taking effect. The blood is then placed into a centrifuge to separate the PRP from your blood. After it is ready, the PRP is massaged into the treatment area either during or after this procedure.

Once the procedure is finished, the doctor will apply a serum or balm to help relieve any redness or skin irritation prior to the treatment.

After the procedure is done, your skin might have some redness and minor irritation. We recommend a couple of things to make the recovery easier and faster:

  • Clean and moisturize your skin at least twice a day.
  • Avoid alcohol-based products and exfoliates for at least 72 hours after the treatment.
  • Try to avoid sun exposure at all times or activities that might cause excessive sweating since it might cause irritation and slow down your healing process.

Many patients have expressed that their skin feels firmer and smoother after a micro-needling with PRP. Just remember that you will need to do follow-ups with your doctors at least once a year for potential maintenance and keep the amazing results this non-surgical procedure can bring you.


As we have mentioned before, non-surgery plastic procedures can help your skin look young and healthy. But if you are trying to remove scars from acne besides wrinkles and aging spots, DermaPen™ is the treatment you are looking for.

The DermaPen™ has needles that, when making contact with your skin, create a tiny puncture in the surface of your skin causing something called a micro-trauma. When the micro-trauma is created, it causes an immune response in our skin causing the creation of new and healthy collagen.

The punctures that the needles cause in this procedure, carry nutrients deep into your skin layers for an increased effect, and because the movement of these needles move as quickly as they do, they slide easily into your skin without causing any scratches or tears in your skin.

Some may experience facial redness prior to this non surgery procedure, but it will only last a period of time of only 12 to 48 hours. There are not many recommendations for after the procedure since normally once it is done, patients return to normal daily activities immediately and the best thing about it, is that the results achieved with this treatment will last permanently!

Chemical Peeling

This is another method for you to improve the appearance of the skin in your face, neck or hands. It basically exfoliates and eventually peels off your skin when a chemical solution is applied, so then, you can have a regenerated smoother and less wrinkled skin.

If you decide to get a chemical peeling procedure, the chemicals will be spread only in the area you wish to treat. The function of the chemicals is to exfoliate the skin until it makes is “blister” and eventually peel off. Some people might feel a burning or stinging sensation for a few minutes while the procedure is performed.

This process usually involves redness in your skin followed by scaling, kind of like the feeling when we get a sunburn, and it ends within three to seven days prior to the procedure. As well, mild peels might occur after the first peel.

If you are getting a medium-depth and deep peeling, it is normal that swelling and blisters that may break appear after the treatment, as well as skin darkening and peel off on a period of 7 to 14 days. Medium-depth peels can be repeated in 6 to 12 months if necessary.

It is important to know that the number of treatments you will need, will vary depending on the condition of your skin. It goes from 6 to 10 treatments with a 3 to 4 days recovery and other several weeks. Also, it could take time for results to be seen and in case the results are not the desired ones, you could need one or more treatments to achieve it.

The results of this treatment are not permanent because as the patient ages, some lines by squinting or smiling will continue to appear, but a chemical peeling can be a great way to improve your skin tone and texture on a non-invasive way.
