The Ultimate Guide to Botox in Bali






Introduction


Last fact-checked: 8 December 2019

Whether you're planning a trip-of-a-lifetime to Southeast Asia or simply taking a well-earned holiday, your time in this exotic part of the world presents a great opportunity to save money on a variety of anti-aging treatments.

Below, we run you through the ins and outs of getting Botox© in Bali, one of the most popular treatments on the island for international visitors. 

How Does Botox Work?


Botox is an injectable serum that works by releasing a chemical that paralyzes facial muscles. It works on wrinkles by freezing the muscles underneath the skin; however, Botox doesn’t work on all wrinkles – only those caused by expressions (that you can’t see when your face is resting).

Botox is one of the most popular non-invasive treatments that offers an alternative to plastic surgery. Bali is the ideal choice for the procedure, particularly given that there are minimal side-effects so you can still enjoy your holiday to the max. Plus, when you return home, friends and family will probably assume you look so well because of your holiday, rather than the treatment!

Why Should I Have Botox in Bali?


Bali has a rapidly-growing economy and is the most popular island in Indonesia for tourism. Indonesia boasts a diverse culture, is one of only 17 megadiverse countries in the world, is a biodiversity hotspot and offers vibrant cities, stunning scenery, fascinating culture and, of course, those beautiful beaches. There is much to do and see here and, if you are visiting on holiday, undergoing a course of Botox won't take too much time out of your schedule and the downtime will be fairly minimal.

Medical tourism has led to the establishment of first-rate hospitals and other specialist facilities that offer non-invasive beauty care, as well as health and wellness clinics across Bali

This doesn’t mean you should forgo doing some research of your own. While facilities are generally good island-wide, it’s always worth your while just making sure. Booking through Medical Departures gives you a certain assurance that the clinics and doctors’ credentials have already been checked and verified by us. We list doctors and their qualifications, professional memberships and publish real patient reviews. We also pay personal visits to clinics, take photos, which are also published on our site, and include other useful information – all so you can get a good overall picture of the facilities, enabling you to feel secure about your choice.

What Is the Procedure for Botox?


The Botox procedure is quick – it simply involves a number of small injections of the product into the areas to be treated. You will probably be given a local anesthetic before the injection is administered. A fine-needled syringe delivers the exact amount of product into the required area.

What Is the Recovery Time for Botox?


After your course, your skin may feel hot and there may be some slight localized reddening of the skin. Swelling or bruising may also occur, but these will disappear after a few days.

When Will I See Results from Botox?


Results should be noticeable straight away, but initial swelling may disguise this (for a few days) and it may take a week or two for the full effects to develop. You can top-up your Botox regularly, and if you do so the results could last for up to a year.

What is the cost of Botox in Bali compared to Australia?


You will see substantial savings on the price of Botox in Bali, which comes in at around AUD $8 per unit, compared to around AUD $15 in Australia.

Obviously, these savings won't merit a trip to Bali especially for Botox, but it's certainly something to consider if you're planning a trip here anyway or visiting for other cosmetic or medical treatment.

In 2019 I had my first procedure (rhinoplasty) with Dr. Nain, an excellent surgeon, a very ethical and professional Dr., with a lot of experience, his entire team is super professional and trained, months later he performed a mastopexy on me, he gave me so much confidence and security that I would never have any procedure done if it wasn't with him . I was happy with my results and to this day I continue to go to him for other treatments. To dr. Nain I recommend it with the assurance that the patient will be satisfied and happy with the results of any procedure performed. The doctor. Nain is the best plastic surgeon and has the best team with him, everyone is super attentive, and very professional and trained, they really make you feel confident.
