Last fact-checked: 13 November 2019

If you think you look older and are surprised at the appearance of lines and wrinkles on your face, it might be time to consider undergoing Botox in Malaysia. A course of simple injections here costs a fraction of what it does in countries like Australia, the US and the UK, so if you're in the country on business or holiday and have been thinking about rejuvenating your look, look no further than our quality-checked partner clinics offering Botox to international patients

Even if you diligently use anti-aging creams, keep your skin well moisturized and take care of it, with time, your face will show some signs of aging. Botox is a simple, non-surgical solution that will take years off your face.

Modern-day lives, daily stress, pollution all take their toll and your genes also influence the way your skin looks. Botox can help keep the signs of aging at bay and help you look better and younger with very little effort.

Why Should You Consider Botox in Malaysia?

Malaysia is a top tourist destination in Asia. It has all that tourists look for in terms of sightseeing, shopping, attractions and food, with good local transport systems and generally low prices when it comes to getting around. You can have your pick of hotels at different price points that will make your visit comfortable or luxurious. So you can easily combine a holiday in Malaysia and, at the same time, undergo a course of Botox.

With excellent medical facilities at an affordable price, Malaysia is a favored medical tourist destination as well. You can get a flight to Malaysia from most major airports in Australia, as well as from across the world. When in Malaysia, you can also do short trips around the area you are staying in. 

Why Should I Book with Medical Departures?

Of course, you can often book in at a clinic, hospital or doctor via their website. But with this route, you will not be sure about various aspects of the particular facility; Does it have a Joint Commission International accreditation? Are the doctors properly qualified? Do they speak English? What kind of a place is it really?

If you book through Medical Departures, you can be assured that we have already done the homework for you. We check out the credentials of the doctors, the ambience of the place, the fact that the staff deals with English speaking people and the general hygiene levels in the place.

It is only when we are satisfied with all the scores that we list the place on our site. We take the guesswork out of the picture and assure that you are safe and have a great experience. 

How Long Does botox take and What Is the Recovery Time?

There are different brands of Botox, used in varying strengths and these include:

  • Myobloc (rimabotulinumtoxinB)
  • Dysport (abobotulinumtoxinA)
  • Xeomin (incobotulinumtoxinA)

Different strains of Botox are used for cosmetic purposes and different ones for medical purposes. You would need cosmetic botox that works by paralyzing muscles and resulting in smoother looking skin.

Botox works on fine lines, crow’s feet, frown lines, forehead furrows, nose lines, necklines and even a gummy smile. Either the doctor puts an anesthetic cream on your face or gives you a mild anesthetic injection or a numbing cold spray, so you don’t feel the botox injections. You can resume all activities immediately after the injections, but results will show up in 48 hours to a week.

What Is the Cost of Botox in Malaysia?

Botox in Australia costs between AUD 14 and AUD 28 per unit. In Malaysia you will pay between AUD 7 and AUD 9 per unit.

To give you an idea of the cost, you may need up to 85 units if you want the whole face done. You may need as little as 35 units for the whole face if you don’t have too many wrinkles. Again the number of units you need will totally depend on your present state and which areas of your face you need work on.
