With all the fun, sun and nightlife, visitors to Phuket often feel like a kid again and the abundance of dermatology and skin care clinics can make you can look like one, too. The treatments used are safe, non-invasive and relatively painless, which makes them an attractive option for people who'd like to look better but aren't interested in drastic measures like plastic surgery.
To reduce lines and wrinkles, many people are turning to the wildly popular drug known as Botox. Botox is a non-surgical, physician assisted procedure designed to help reduce lines in the skin. The treatment only takes a few minutes but the results are immediate and can last up to four months. There are a few side effects to the drug, so make sure to consult with your dermatologist or physician to make sure it is right for you.
Dermatology covers a wide range of treatments, such as microdermabrasion, which uses fine crystals to gently scour away layers of dead skin to leave your skin polished and radiant. One of the most exciting advances in the field of dermatology is the Quantum CACI procedure, which can give you all the benefits of a face lift without coming within a mile of a scalpel. The procedure uses a micro-current to stimulate the facial muscles, gently exercising them to improve contours and smooth away wrinkles.
Whether you'd like Botox injections to smooth away wrinkles, microdermabrasion to give your skin a healthy glow or collagen for fuller lips you can find the latest treatments and advances in Phuket. Dermatologists here are skilled practitioners who've travelled the world to receive the best education and experience possible, with impressive results. In just a few hours you can have years taken off your face, be rid of unsightly scars or body hair and be right back on the beach. There are literally dozens of skin care clinics on the island and the fierce competition means that only the very best survive for very long.
