For over a decade, Asia has been a destination for medical tourism. This is somewhat misleading; in actuality, most go to the region for “cosmetic surgery vacations.” Imagine getting cosmetic surgery-by certified surgeons and at reputable medical centers-at a much lower price and recuperating in a locale that is a veritable tropical paradise. This is why Asia is a medical, albeit mostly for cosmetic procedures, tourism hot spot.
People are slowly discovering that aside from these “medical” packages, the region is a wonderful getaway for people looking for cosmetic rejuvenation of the non-surgical kind. Southeast Asia has become the place to visit for spa tourism.
One of the most popular treatments falling under this category is skin rejuvenation through microdermabrasion. By itself, there’s nothing special about it. You can find spas and salons anywhere in the world that carry microdermabrasion machines; but, combined with a total spa vacation in a lush, tropical setting, it’s pretty hard to beat. With microdermabrasion, you’ll truly save more money by taking your facial skin cared fairly regularly or taken care of for in the spa. It could help reduce the facial lines which will only reveal your actual age while you are trying hard to not ever tell it to anybody.
If you check out a spa directory or a health/medical tourism guide, you’ll see listings for places offering assorted cosmetic procedures. For the non-surgical variety, microdermabrasion machine treatments sit on top of the list. You can find them in so many places that you can practically go on a tour of the entire region and not miss a treatment.
If you’re looking for the ultimate in a cosmetic rejuvenation and/or spa vacation, you can choose among the many places, particularly in Southeast Asia that offer such packages. An overall beauty and wellness vacation is not hard to find and surprisingly more affordable than most people think. Combine staying in a luxury resort offering wellness courses such as yoga and pilates with relaxing sessions of massage and rejuvenating interludes of microdermabrasion machine treatments.
Prefers to stay in the metropolis? That’s just as easy. Take your pick among the many bustling and vibrant cities of Asia. Plan your stay around your medical and cosmetic schedule yet take advantage of the urban setting. Stay in any of the numerous well-appointed hotels that offer the services you need or are within a stone’s throw away from the medical center of your choice.
