When I was looking for the best skin treatment clinic in Phuket, I had three things I looked for:
- Are they accredited?
- Are they affordable?
- Do they have a track record of excellent customer service?
To answer these questions, you need to start with your online research. A good quality website with a lot of information about the place always helps to understand the ethics of the clinic and what to expect from a potential visit. If you want to do a course of treatments, It’s also important to shop around to see what is the market price for the procedures that you are interested in getting done. I would avoid places that are way too expensive or way too cheap. Most basic beauty treatments have been on the market for years and already have established prices. A lot of good clinics won’t overcharge for standard procedures. The amount might vary for the injectables though, as the price for it depends on the doctor’s experiences and his or her status in the industry.
Do you own research
Nowadays, with social media, it’s straightforward to find out how reputable a place is. My favourite way to find out anything about any business is to find their Instagram/Facebook account. By checking their tagged photos from client reviews and feedback would help you to form your opinion on the place. Most business pages would have their specific hashtag which makes the whole process even more accessible. Once you gather all this information, you should book an appointment for a free consultation. When you come prepared with basic knowledge about the place and its treatment offerings, the meeting will be less overwhelming, and it would be easier to decide on what exactly you are ready to invest at this stage.
Once we arrived in Phuket and got settled in, I was looking for a beauty clinic that can offer a variety of effective skin treatments. I have problematic skin, so acne was my biggest concern at that time. We just spent two months on the road travelling around New Zealand, and my skin needed some professional care. To find the Healthy Skin Clinic online wasn’t a problem. A google search finds them pretty quickly. Healthy Skin Clinic has been on the market over eight years and has a lot of delighted customers. Another thing that got my attention was that a lot of their customers were travellers and immigrants. I thought it was a great indication that staff at the Healthy Skin Clinic can easily communicate with foreigners in English, which is not the case in many beauty clinics in Phuket.
The Healthy Skin Clinic only uses FDA approved treatments, equipment and medicine. If the term FDA doesn’t ring the bell for you, here is a little information on the name:
FDA (Food & Drug Administration) is responsible for protecting the public health by assuring the safety, efficacy and security of human and veterinary drugs, biological products, medical devices, our nation’s food supply, cosmetics, and products that emit radiation.
This means The FDA tests all the cosmetics containing drugs and if it fulfils the proper requirements, it will be awarded a certification of approval. By choosing FDA approved products and treatments, you are using the safest and effective treatments with guaranteed results.
My experience at the Healthy Skin Clinic
After meeting the lovely staff of the Healthy Skin Clinic in Phuket Old Town, I have decided to go ahead with a course of treatments. On the day, I was lucky enough to meet their doctor, so I got consulted for skin injectables as well. I have been advised to stop using my home skin care and to start a course of Detox treatments at the clinic once every two weeks. To kick-start my treatments, I decided to go for a facial mesotherapy.
Mesotherapy is a type of treatment that involves the injection of a carefully calibrated cocktail of antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins and minerals. Such an injection stimulates the mesoderm, where fat, connective tissues are found. Mesotherapy can be used all over the body, in many cases to promote weight loss.
In my case, it was only a facial mesotherapy, which involves injecting nutrients into the face to give the skin an extra boost. The vital ingredient like hyaluronic acid, along with other essential vitamins when injected directly into the skin can dramatically change the appearance of the skin. The components are used to hydrate and nourish skin to promote an excellent production of collagen, which leads to rejuvenation and improved circulation.
The procedure wasn’t as painful as it sounds. The doctor’s work was very gentle and efficient. For the best results, it’s recommended to get it done twice a year with a month break in between treatments. I was quite happy with the results after my first treatment, so decided to have a longer interval between my injectables.
The Detox Touch and Glow (Acne Treatment) is a 1 hour 15 mins procedure which is very relaxing most of the treatment. The only uncomfortable part is when the therapists perform extractions on the most congested parts of the face. To be honest, I enjoyed the way the extractions were performed and noticed a big difference in my skin, once it got healed. Previously I have experienced many ways and forms of acne treatments, hands down so far this program is the most effective one.
I tried all sorts of treatment options over the years and went through quite a journey while looking for a beauty place to suit my skin needs. I’m glad I found the Healthy Skin Clinic and got into the hands of their amazing specialists. Their friendly but professional approach was precisely what I was looking for.
If you are in Phuket and want to invest in some beauty treatments, pop into the Healthy Skin Clinic for a free consultation and see everything for yourself. All the procedures are reasonably priced and worth every cent. Also remember, our skin worth the investment. Your appearance is what represents you anywhere you go. Take care of yourself and do it smart!
