Laser Skin Resurfacing in Bali

The Ultimate Guide to Laser Skin Resurfacing in Bali

Last fact-checked: 12 August 2020

Take a little time out of your holiday itinerary when visiting Bali and revitalize your skin with affordable laser skin resurfacing. 

Also known as a laser peel, this procedure is suitable for patients who are otherwise in good health, do not suffer from skin allergies or infections or have very dark skin. 

After laser skin resurfacing, you will find your skin no longer has the wrinkles, furrows and lines, scars and blotches and you also have a better skin tone. The results are subtle and yet you will look so much younger once your new skin forms.

Why Consider Laser Skin Resurfacing in Bali?

Although laser skin resurfacing may be considered a surgical procedure, it is still a cosmetic treatment and is not usually covered by medical insurance. When you have to pay for such treatments, it’s always worth your while shopping around for less expensive alternatives. If you are going to Bali for a holiday, then you can have this treatment carried out for an affordable price at one of our verified, quality-checked clinics. 

Bali has a host of accommodation options and you can stay at budget accommodations, service apartments or splurge on luxury hotels, depending on your budget. Bali also offers unrivalled spa, health, wellness and alternative therapies—just the thing for pampering yourself and to relax you before you have to head home. 

The island provides luxurious facilities for recharging your batteries, but also offers a host of activities, from golfing, to horse-riding to white-water rafting, as well as scuba diving and other outdoor pursuits.

Why Should I Book Treatment in Bali With Medical Departures?

Laser skin resurfacing uses different types of lasers to peel the skin. These devices will work on certain skin types and conditions and it is important that the person who is handling the device knows which one will be best for you otherwise you can have unwanted side effects like pigmentation, burns and permanent scars. In fact, laser skin resurfacing is a surgical procedure and should ideally be done by a board-certified surgeon.

How Long Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Take and What Is the Estimated Recovery Period?

This procedure can take between 30 minutes to two hours as it depends upon the kind of laser skin resurfacing undertaken. For instance, the skin can be peeled either superficially or deeply. There is also a choice of ablative lasers, non-ablative lasers and fractional lasers, as well as Fraxel® (or fractional), erbium or CO2 varieties, so it is crucial that the right laser is used, depending on your skin type and color; those with very dark skin may not be suitable for laser skin resurfacing since dark skin absorbs more of the laser. Your doctor can review the options with you to arrive at the best treatment plan.

For minor laser skin resurfacing, you may feel a tingling sensation. If the peel is deeper, you may require topical anesthesia. For deep laser skin resurfacing, you may even need general anesthesia. After the procedure, your skin may look somewhat sunburnt after mild treatment. After deep-reaching treatment, you may require bandages and dressings. Depending on how deep the laser skin resurfacing goes, you may require a downtime of three days to two weeks. You will also need to follow medical advice regarding how to care for your skin post-treatment for the best results. As the skin heals, it will be smoother and tauter.
