Microdermabrasion in Bali

The Ultimate Guide to Microdermabrasion in Bali

Last fact-checked: 25 February 2020

To get the glow back to your face, microdermabrasion in Bali is an effective solution that's more affordable here than back home.

If you're planning a holiday to Indonesia's most popular island, it's well worth considering this esthetic treatment that'll make you so much better than frying under the sun for hours!

What Is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is performed using a specialized device that polishes the skin. The device used sprays microcrystals on the face and vacuums them. The crystals exfoliate the skin, removing dirt and debris. The vacuum stimulates the skin further. The crystals may be made from different substances, such as aluminum oxide, magnesium oxide, sodium chloride or sodium bicarbonate, so are completely harmless.

Another way of performing skin polishing is by using a diamond-tipped wand that has the same effect as the microcrystals – sanding the skin gently. Then the skin is moisturized, leaving it looking and feeling softer and cleaner.

Why Consider Microdermabrasion in Bali?

Bali is Indonesia’s popular holiday destination, by a long way. It has a year-round temperate climate, making it an attractive tourist destination. It is known for its beaches and coastlines, parks, gardens, green cover and more. Thanks to this it is also home to many exotic species of wildlife, both on the land and in the surrounding waters, and Indonesia is actually only one of 17 megadiverse countries in the world – countries that are rich in diverse plant and animal species.

Bali offers visitors a variety of attractions, notwithstanding its stunning beaches, including luxurious hotels, exquisite dining options, cultural interests and exhilarating activities to take part in on both land and sea.

Bali is also now becoming a hub for medical tourists who are arriving here for high-quality, affordable medical and cosmetic treatments.

As you are only going to undergo non-invasive cosmetic treatment, it will not interfere with your holiday too much, but you will need to ensure that you do look after your skin after any treatment by staying out of the sun – so it may be worth scheduling a microdermabrasion procedure toward the end of your trip.

Why Should I Book with Medical Departures?

Even when undergoing cosmetic treatment, it is best to book through Medical Departures for your own peace of mind. That is because we conduct background and other checks on the qualifications, experience and accreditations of the doctors attached to the cosmetic clinics listed on our website.

What Does Microdermabrasion Entail and What Is the Recovery Like?

Microdermabrasion, or "skin polishing" as it may be called, can be done on visible areas of the body like the face, the neck, the back, shoulders and even stomach. It helps in removing spots and cleaning the embedded dirt and debris, making the skin look brighter and better. It can take between half an hour to an hour, depending on how much of your body you want to get the treatment on.

Unless you have very sensitive skin, you will not face any downtime. If you do, you may have some mild swelling and redness but this will go away in a few hours. You will have to use good quality moisturizing products and sunblock after treatment so that the skin retains the effects of microdermabrasion for longer.

This treatment can be done at regular intervals for best results, much like a facial. Spots, scars and fine lines will become near-invisible and your skin will regain its glow.
