ARC Anti-aging Beauty Clinic is the pioneer of medical tourism on Bali, opening their doors in 2002, and is now the country’s leading anti-aging clinic administering more Botox and Human Growth Hormone than any other medical facility in Indonesia.

Australian owned and managed and staffed by experienced cosmetic physicians and nurses who administer all anti-aging and cosmetic treatments with professionalism using leading-edge technology and hygiene.

Every month ARC offers special discounts on a variety of treatments. With savings like this you can afford to indulge in enhancing your beauty. August’s special is a 20% discount on Botox. Botox is still the foundation of looking younger almost instantly. It’s especially effective in erasing the wrinkles and fine lines on the forehead and around the eyes, making you look ten years younger.


How does Botox work?

Botox blocks the signals from the nerves to the muscles so that the muscle can no longer contract, causing wrinkles and frown lines to relax and soften. It’s commonly used on the forehead lines, crow’s feet (those little lines around the eyes) and frown lines. However, you need an experienced doctor who knows where to place the injections and how much to use. I’ve heard horror stories of people who’ve been given too much and can no longer move their facial muscles, leaving them with a frozen expression. Or improperly injected near the eyes have resulted in drooping muscles around the eye. Not a pretty picture. That’s why it’s important to have an experienced doctor. Botox will generally be effective for about 6 to 12 months. Originally it was used to treat migraine headaches.

I always love going into ARC Anti-aging Clinic, which is very spacious and bright embellished with original art works. Rather like entering an art gallery, making me relax the moment I walk in. I went in for a free consultation with Dr. Chandra to assess my face where Botox would be the most beneficial to enhance my looks. Looking carefully at my skin and asking me to frown and lifting the skin while looking in the mirror. Dr. Chandra has been working for ARC for many years and is very experienced with a very pleasant personality encouraging trust in her professional abilities. Then she asked me to step into the adjoining room for the procedure.

Lying comfortably on a purple reclining bed/chair I felt relaxed as the nurse applied an ice pack over the area where the injections would be made. She showed me the certified Botox Allergan bottle from the USA to assure me that they only use this product in ARC.

Step by step the nurse applied a cold pack to an area on my face to numb it a little before Dr. Chandra injected the Botox into my skin. When she was ready for the forehead she asked me to frown to pinpoint the correct spot for the injection. With the numbing there was very little pain for the injections. The whole procedure only took about half an hour.


Afterwards the nurse handed me an aftercare instructions and a small jar of arnica.


  • Do not rub or massage the treated area for 24 hours post-treatment
  • No sun exposure for 24 hours post treatment. Wear a good quality

Light Lift- Needle Method for the Neck

Coming this September is a new treatment for sagging skin on the neck and under the chin using the new Aptos Threads that are absorbable with microscopic barbs attached to the middle of the needles. The threads have double sharp ends which allows a single point entry. Double edged needles allow the threads along any contour creating a circle avoiding skin retractions. This creates a hammock-like effect under the chin lifting it up and holding it in place.

This welcome treatment may just be the answer you’ve been looking for to make your neck look smoother and eliminate that double chin. Book an appointment with Dr. Chandra to discuss this new treatment to see if it’s the remedy that you’ve been looking for. Aptos Threads will be the featured promo for September.
