THE 10 BEST MEDI SPAS IN BALI
1. Lumina Aesthetics Clinic – Kuta
You’ll love it because… Lumina Aesthetics Clinic is a multi-disciplinary destination that delivers real results safely and consistently. Here you’ll find laser rooms, spa studios, clinical rooms and even a gynaecology department, plus a team of certified and experienced doctors and therapists to assist you in all of your beauty needs. But the best bit? Every procedure is bespoke and tailored entirely to you. They take a holistic and personalised approach, carefully creating individualised plans that use specific products according to different skin and body types.
Try the: Plasma Rejuvenation Therapy. This non-invasive treatment uses local anaesthetic and a fine needle to inject a special rejuvenation substance into the skin to promote healing. The idea is that by injecting the substance into damaged tissue, the body is stimulated to promote healing by growing new, healthy cells. This treatment is used predominantly on the face and neck, but it can be used to treat any area on the body, even for Hair Growth Therapy.
The perks: The benefits of Plasma Rejuvenation Therapy include improved skin texture, reduced inflammation, faster tissue repair through new skin-cell growth, stimulated collagen production, lightening of dark circles, and firmer, tighter skin.

2. Cocoon Medical Spa – Ubud & Kuta
You’ll love it because… Cocoon Medical Spa is the crème de la crème of anti-ageing and integrative wellness in Bali, with innovative spaces and a holistic approach from internationally-qualified Indonesian doctors. Seamlessly combining aesthetic and cosmetic treatments together with anti-ageing and wellness therapies, Cocoon’s doctors are trained in vitamin IV therapies, detoxification and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). And despite the affordable prices, you won’t be compromising on quality here, because Cocoon’s integrative approach, technologies and customer service are all five-star.
Try the… PRP combined with Dermapen. Made famous by Kim Kardashian as “the vampire facelift,” this treatment involves separating the platelet rich plasma (PRP) from your own blood, which is then distributed to targeted areas of your face via tiny injections. The result is a highly anti-ageing and healing “serum”, and combined with a Dermapen, you get a double-infusion of PRP via all-over micro-punctures, with all the added benefits of micro-needling.
The perks: This natural combination treatment is a self-healing catalyst, resulting in increased collagen production, improved skin vitality, diminished acne scarring, reduced sun damage, increased skin hydration… basically a one-way ticket to a flawless complexion. You will see results after just one treatment, however, for the best results you may require a series of sessions.

3. ARC Anti-Ageing Beauty Clinic – Kuta

The perks: The treatment is carried out under local anaesthesia, which makes it painless and takes just one hour. While the effects are immediately visible, results last approximately 1 – 2 years depending on your age, the degree of sagging and the number of threads used. If you’re not ready for a surgical facelift but would love to look instantly more youthful, a thread lift is your golden ticket.

The clinic’s services include all of the usual medi-spa must-haves, as well as high-tech slimming sessions, infusions, facials, and beauty treatments too.
Try the: HIFU (High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound). This non-invasive face lift treatment uses ultrasound (energy from high-frequency sound) to penetrate the skin, applying heat to the target area. The heat encourages your skin cells to produce more collagen, resulting in firmer skin and a more supple look. The effects may last for up to a few months, depending on your skin type and how many sessions you try.
The perks: HIFU is a non-surgical procedure without needing any anaesthesia or recovery time. The treatment tightens sagging skin (including the neck and décolletage) and defines the natural structures of your jawline, cheeks, eyebrows and eyelids.

6. Rejuvie Clinic – Kuta & Sanur
You’ll love it because… This highly specialised clinic has established itself as one of the island’s best medi-spas, with a focus on state-of-the-art anti-ageing beauty and body sculpting treatments. Their wide range of non-invasive procedures prove that you don’t need to sacrifice safety and comfort in order to achieve highly effective and long lasting results.
Try the… Accent Ultra. This two-pronged treatment is designed to effectively remove fat, reduce cellulite and contour the body and face using ultrasound and radio frequency. It smoothes and sculpts without going under the knife by utilising synergistic technologies that facilitate lipolysis (the breakdown of fat) and enhance the contour of most body parts.
The perks: Accent Ultra is non-invasive with minimal pain and no downtime. First fat deposits are targeted with ultrasound to reduce localised body or facial fat cells. This is then followed by Radio Frequency to generate heat, stimulating collagen and thereby tightening the skin. It also helps realign collagen and elastin fibres to smooth the fat cells and counteract the “orange peel” dimple effect. Women with cellulite and sagging skin are ideal candidates for Accent Ultra and usually see amazing results…
7. Radiance Bali – Kuta
You’ll love it because… Radiance Bali is dedicated to reclaiming youthful looks, helped along by a wide range of rejuvenating and anti-ageing services and products.

8. Body Lab – Seminyak

All treatments are non-surgical, delivered by experienced medical professionals and therapists.

The treatments range from injectables, to rejuvenation and a slimming spa too. And to really get the full Body lab experience, you can consult one of the therapists to create a custom treatment specific to your body.
Try the: Meso V-Shape. The clinic’s signature treatment to shape the face according to its natural features. Meso V-Shape contains biologically active, fat-burning substances derived mainly from plants. Micro needling is then used to deliver these substances into the fat deposits that sit right under the skin layer. They stimulate the breakdown of fat, highlighting your natural facial structures, jawline and chin area.
The perks: The key benefit of Meso V-Shape is the way in which is enhances the features you already have. Meanwhile, the reduction in fat results in a slimmer, more lifted look. Since it’s a targeted treatment, it might be a more preferable option (compared to surgical procedures) if you just want to highlight certain parts of the face and neck areas.
9. MOII Aesthetic Clinic Bali – Umalas
You’ll love it because… MOII isn’t just a beauty clinic – it’s a lifestyle brand that puts the emphasis on your personal beauty.

To top it all off, the clinic offers total relaxation at the Oxygen Lounge, or IV treatments for those pesky hangovers – available in-house or on-call in the privacy of your home, hotel or villa.
Try the: IPL Acne. IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) therapy uses xenon light, delivered through a hand-held device in multiple, high-intensity waves. Heat from the light source clears up clogged pores, by breaking down built-up sebum and damaged skin cells which can cause acne. IPL is used to treat and prevent blackheads, whiteheads and other mild acne, thought it’s not effective for severe cases, like nodular or cystic acne.
The perks: IPL Acne targets the root of the problem, rather than the symptoms of acne. It has been reported to reduce the size and secretion of oil glands, therefore preventing future blockages and infections within the pores. IPL therapy is also used in the treatment of acne scars, inflammation and skin discolouration. It’s a non-invasive, topical treatment which may be preferable to hormonal therapy.
10. Puriva Aesthetic & Lifestyle Clinic – Kuta

Try the: Profhilo Hybrid Skin Booster, a revolutionary treatment with the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid in the market. Skin Booster is an injection which incorporates vitamins and key amino acids to boost hyaluronic acid, a component which hydrates your skin. The procedure takes less than an hour, and includes cleaning the skin, injection in the defined site, and finally massaging the area followed by application of an antibiotic cream.
The Perks: The hydration from hyaluronic acid results in extra suppleness, firmer, smoother and glowing skin, giving you a radiant and younger look. The effect can be seen as early as two weeks and lasts for up to a year, depending on your skin. For a longer result, consult the team for a recommendation on repeating the injection.
