Medical tourism continues to grow

New Patama Clinic opens

From right to left, a visiting TV presenter joins Chao Yawapan na Chiang Mai, Dr. Pattama Srisikiew, CEO of Goldensoft Corp. Sopon Mungkornthongsakun and another visiting celebrity for the grand opening of the clinic.

The latest entry into the race to make Chiang Mai a hub for medical tourism opened at Chang Puak Gate on Saturday, September 17, 2011 with the opening of a new branch of the Patama Aesthetic Laser Center

While skincare solutions for acne, scarring, wrinkles, and pigmentation have been in common use by women for some time, the doctor at the Patama Center noted that more and more men are coming in for treatments. There are many treatments on offer, from pigmentation and scar removal using laser treatments, tattoo removal, laser hair removal, wrinkle reduction using various technologies including radio frequency, non-invasive cellulite removal, even hair treatment that stimulates hair growth.

One of the technicians demonstrates the equipment on a patient.

Visitors to the opening took advantage of the day and underwent skin analysis, where an in-depth scan of the face is done and then a computer program is used to highlight the issues and show what the face would look like when corrected. Other visitors had facial treatments that involved radio frequency treatment.

The skincare clinic, like many, practices non-invasive techniques, ie no surgery but the use of peels, radiofrequency, laser, and Thermage treatments. They also offer Restylane and Botox injections. And while there are many who deride the chase for youth, the popularity of such things cannot be disregarded.

Medical tourism is on the rise across Asia and the Thai government has been working hard to boost Chiang Mai as a medical tourism destination. The opening of Patama Clinic’s latest branch in Chiang Mai shows that even one of the larger clinics, with more than 12 branches around Thailand, believes that medical tourism is growing in Chiang Mai.

Guests to the opening joined for a group photo at the opening.

One of the doctors at the clinic explained the various equipment and its uses, making it clear that their procedures were gentle and non-invasive.

This piece of equipment scans the face and maps all the inconsistencies and flaws.

The new Patama clinic is stocked with the latest state of the art equipment for facial and body treatments, many imported directly from the United States and Europe.

Chiang Mai’s Mark Stevenson runs for charity

Mark Stevenson is seen here crossing the salt flats of
the Atacama Desert in March of 2011.

By Shana Kongmun

Earlier this year, newly arrived Chiang Mai resident Mark Stevenson ran for charity in the high altitudes of the Atacama Desert, a 600 km long desert plateau high in the Andes mountains and considered to be the driest desert in the world.

Now he’s tackling the Sahara Desert as part of the 4 Desert series of races. The 4 Desert race sees runners cross four major deserts; the Gobi, the Atacama, the Sahara and finally the most extreme of all, Antarctica.

Come October 2, 2011 Mark will be headed to the high temperatures of the Sahara Desert to pass through the Valley of the Whales, where ancient fossils can be found as the area used to be a shallow sea. The 250 km race covers hard packed sand, searing temperatures and the runners are all self supported that is, they must carry their own gear on packs on their backs. The 7 day race ends at the pyramids of Giza. 160 competitors from 40 countries are expected to compete.

So why would a man who enjoys the good life of Chiang Mai fly around the world to run in such extreme conditions? Well, besides the fact that he loves the challenge, he raises money for the charity Shelterbox, which helps to provide aid and shelter to people affected by natural and other disasters. Those in immediate need get food, water, and shelter from Shelterbox.

Not your usual bamboo furniture

Eza Design owner Manee Meepanya receives flowers from Jong Nitradee on the opening of their new showroom at Kantary Terrace on September 9.

The term “bamboo furniture” conjures up images of beachside bamboo chairs and tables but you would be mistaken if you thought the bamboo furniture at newly opened Eza Design was anything like that.

This modern designed furniture and home décor is made out of solid wood with a gorgeous timber bamboo veneer. Stained in colors ranging from red and yellow to brown or more natural colors, the furniture has a flowing modern quality. And yet, unlike so many highly designed pieces of furniture, it is comfortable to sit on as well.

The flowing furniture is made out of wood with timber bamboo veneer.

They are selling eco-friendly furniture made from one of the most useable natural resources, bamboo. This fast growing grass can be harvested every two years producing a renewable resource for furniture, flooring, paper and many other uses.

The designer is French and runs the business with his Thai wife and a partner. The showroom is located on the third floor at Kantary Terrace on Nimmanhaemin Road and celebrated its grand opening on Friday, September 9, 2011.

Well known Lanna scholar and Chiang Mai Goodwill Ambassador Dr. Vithi Phanichphant attended the opening with a friend.

Not only is the furniture made from eco-friendly bamboo but the showroom has timber bamboo flooring which showed off the flowing design of the furniture.

The opening attracted many local expats interested in the eco-friendly furniture.

The natural stain on this side table shows off the grain of the bamboo.

John Howkins includes advertising, architecture, art, crafts, design, fashion, film, music, performing arts, publishing, research and development, software, toys and games, TV and radio, and video games.
