Aesthetic advances have evolved tremendously in the last few years, and Puerto Vallarta physician Luis Dominguez Zuniga wants you to know many new treatments that do not require surgery are now available. 

Non-surgical aesthetic treatments have become popular and have yielded incredible and satisfactory results for patients, especially in terms of naturalness and zero invasion to the body. These treatments are not permanent and only last a few months. Experts in aesthetic and regenerative medicine explain that from the age of 20 or 25 you can go to treat the first signs of age.

Dr. Luis Dominguez Zuniga is a physician with a Master’s Degree in Aesthetic and Anti-Aging Medicine who has brought many of these new treatments to PV and has been very well received in our city – especially by the LGBTQ+ community.

Originally from Mexico City, Dr. Luis, like many of the new residents of Puerto Vallarta, came here for only a few months and ended up falling in love with the city. He has now been living here for two years, offering his innovative aesthetic services and making his life in this wonderful port.

“I love the lifestyle of PV, quiet, with a wide gastronomic offer, with many entrepreneurs and an active nightlife,” Luis explained.

At the beginning Dr. Luis arrived only as a doctor and when he saw the potential that exists in Vallarta he did not hesitate to start specializing in Aesthetic Medicine. After a short time he was able to open his own office and start treating different patients, especially from the community. 

“Everything was very fast, I didn’t think of it that way, but I am happy and grateful for it, especially with the LGBTQ+ community.”

The services Dr. Luis offers are non-surgical Facial Rejuvenation and Body Shaping treatments, they are minimally invasive and outpatient. These services include Botox, Hyaluronic Acid fillers, Collagen Stimulation. These are treatments that rejuvenate the skin and deep collagen, creating new volume in the skin which results in a facelift type result but without surgery. It is one of the most demanded services in Dr. Luis’ office. 

Ninety percent of the treatments he offers are injectable. The products used in each procedure are from commercial companies such as Botox, Restylane and Galderma.

As we mentioned before, his main consumers are the men of the gay community in Vallarta, both foreigners and nationals. 

“Eighty percent of my patients are from the LGBTQ+ community and that has also brought me recommendations especially with straight women who like aesthetic treatments,” he said. 

The treatments are non-permanent, that is, they last a few months and then the body naturally discards them. Collagen Stimulation treatments, Thread Lifts and Stimulators can last between a year or even up to two. On the other hand, Botox is the treatment that lasts a little less.

These are some of the non-invasive aesthetic procedures:


Botox is the number one anti-aging treatment in the world for eliminating facial wrinkles.

When injected, Botox (botulinum toxin) temporarily relaxes the facial muscles that form wrinkles such as crow’s feet, frown lines and forehead lines. The application usually takes about 30 minutes.

The dosage will depend on each patient and the effect lasts approximately 4 to 5 months.

Hyaluronic acid fillers:

Hyaluronic acid fillers are non-invasive, biocompatible, resorbable treatments intended to correct volume loss associated with aging, and to harmonize and/or balance the face.

Areas such as cheekbone, chin, nose, jaw line and lips can be treated. The duration of this treatment is up to 18 months.

Non surgical facelift with tensor threads:

By means of biocompatible sutures (PDO threads) it is possible to lift facial tissues that have lost support due to collagen degradation.

The PDO threads (polydioxanone) are inserted in a subcutaneous plane and when tightened generate an immediate lifting effect.

Polydioxanone or PDO is a totally compatible, resorbable and sterile material.

At the subcutaneous level, polydioxanone generates a reparative process around it, which triggers the production of new elastic collagen and elastin fibers.

This technique is used to “lift” eyebrows, cheekbones, nasolabial fold, jaw line and neck. It does not require hospitalization and is performed in 45 minutes.

Bio stimulators: Sculptra:

As a poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) collagen stimulator, Sculptra helps restore the deep, underlying structure of the skin to diminish facial wrinkles.

As the Sculptra PLLA microparticles are absorbed, they help stimulate collagen production after 45 days.

Rebuilt collagen strands begin gradually helping to restore facial volume and the look of fullness to wrinkles and folds.

The duration of this treatment is up to 2 years.

The procedure is performed over a period of 45 minutes and recovery is immediate

Treatments Are For Everyone

Dr. Luis says the treatments are for everyone, from young to old. He has a very diverse patient population of all ages that includes men and women.

“Everyone is welcome, these procedures also help people’s self-esteem and make them feel good about themselves,” he said.

Dr. Luis is always updating himself, studying and implementing new techniques, integrating new high quality products. His goal is to become the benchmark for Aesthetic Medicine for the LGBTQ + community in Puerto Vallarta, Guadalajara and Mexico in general.

Do not forget that before undergoing any treatment, you must make sure you go to a certified doctor endorsed by recognized institutions, as well as make sure that safe products are used, from renowned laboratories and supported by health institutions. And of course, don’t forget your good habits such as getting enough sleep, eating a healthy diet, exercising, using sunscreen and following a rigorous skincare routine.

Now that you know that with any of these beauty treatments you will have super natural results and if you have had in mind for a long time to do a ‘fix’ this is your opportunity and what better than in the hands of a professional.
