Thailand Medical Holiday – Chiva-Som ****

This aptly named 'haven of life' in southern Thailand has remained at the Thailand Medical Holiday forefront for 15 years. Among many other accolades, Chiva-Som has been ranked as one of the top three in the 'Overseas Spa Retreats' category of the Condé Nast Traveller Reader's Choice Awards for almost a decade. Given the 2.8 hectares of beautiful tropical gardens the spa resides in, and the unmatched breadth and variety of treatments on offer – over 150 in all – it's easy to see why.

 

The resort's tranquil setting is a world of its own perfectly suited for a Thailand Medical Holiday, carved from some of Thailand's most spectacular natural landscape, in the royal city of Hua Hin. Upon arrival, all guests are treated to a private consultation at the Health and Wellness Centre, where their individual needs are addressed with a special programme of activities tailored to the length of their stay.

 

Chiva-Som's holistic approach caters to every aspect of a guest's physical and mental wellbeing. Eastern and Western philosophies are in perfect harmony, with tai chi taking its place beside pilates, yoga, gym workouts and physiotherapy. While being attended to by the spa's diverse team of international therapists, one gradually comes to the realisation that healing occurs every step of the way: from the gourmet spa cuisine, to the focus on fitness and the vigorous massages which stimulate the lymphatic system.

 

Spa facilities include separate male and female saunas, steam baths and jacuzzis, as well as a unisex multi-level steam room. A bathing pavilion provides a comprehensive array of hydrotherapy options; guests may expect to enjoy an exercise pool, Kneipp therapy foot spa, hydro-jacuzzi and watsu pool along with a plunge pool.

 

From facials to body wraps, masks and massages, the treatment menu may at times prove to be overwhelming. In such scenarios, selecting just one of the signature treatments promises a total rejuvenation. Using oils and products made from local plant ingredients, these treatments have long-lasting effects. By soothing tired muscles, renewing the glow of healthy skin and infusing the body with vital nutrients, these treatments are the spa's way of inspiring real life change from the inside out.

 

State-of-the-art technology is the domain of the Niranlada Medi-Spa facility. Expert practitioners of cosmetic medicine marshal the latest laser and computerised techniques to realise new levels of beauty. Laser techniques are able to tighten skin and remove unsightly veins, while Botox and Restylane procedures are also available and increasingly popular.

 

At the end of every day, it's a pleasure to return to some of the most opulent lodgings to be found in any hotel. Chiva-Som offers 58 guestrooms, in a mix of Thai-style pavilions and Ocean View rooms. The former cluster around the central lake, surrounded by greenery and water, while the Western style rooms and suites of the latter overlook the Gulf of Thailand.

 

In this environment, pleasurable moments lived in good health and companionship go as far in refreshing oneself as all the remarkable treatments that Chiva-Som can offer.

Regardless of age, everyone values the ability to function independently in everyday life.

Inner Peace

   

Stress is one of the major contributors to illness in society today. Unfortunately, when we suffer stress personally, we often find ways to deny it; we buckle down, take one extra load and wait for the weekend; unwind with alcohol; or just go into low gear and ignore steps towards a healthier life.Unfortunately, we can’t hide from stress indefinitely. Stressors are cumulative and the impact of stress over the long term is a slow breakdown in physical and emotional health. At Chiva-Som there are positive ways for you to combat stress without resorting to harmful habits.

Chiva-Som’s Inner Peace retreat is centred on the simple mantra “Calm the Mind, Move the Body”. The first step is to learn simple meditation techniques. After just a few minutes of mindfulness, you will find yourself ready to start turning off the harmful chemistry created by stress. Additionally, exercising at any level is one of the most powerful stress-busters there is. Private Sessions with our personal trainers can introduce you to a routine that works for you, so that it can become a sustainable habit – whether Thai boxing or a power walk.

Longer retreats include relaxing massages and therapies to help you really unwind (tip: try our famous Aquatic therapy!). For those enjoying retreats of 10 nights or more, a Naturopathic Consultation will give you insights from the world of Complementary Medicine as to how to manage stress through diet therapy, herbal therapy, and more.

These include restorative physical activities such as yoga or tai chi, educational sessions such as Lunch and Learn, or therapies such as PNI (Psychoneuroimmunology) or Flower Remedies Consultation.

At our newly renovated Niranlada, Chiva-Som’s medi-spa, our world-renowned cosmetic dermatologist and surgeon, Clinical Professor Dr. Niwat Polnikorn and his specialist team are dedicated to enhancing your aesthetic virtue and confidence. Chiva-Som’s supportive ambiance provides a relaxed and comfortable setting for state-of-the-art aesthetic assessments, treatments and minimally invasive cosmetic surgery. These include VISIA skin analysis, laser skin rejuvenation (Fraxel, Revlite, Coolglide, Sciton), laser hair removal (Coolglide, Sciton), laser for dilated veins and facial redness (Excel V), laser for hyperpigmentation and sun-spots (Revlite, Excel V), tightening of face and neck (Thermage, Fraxel, Titan, Ulthera, Face/Necktite), Striae and scar treatments (Finescan, Fractora), acne treatment (Bioplasm), Cellulite treatment (Bodytite), lipolysis and contouring (Ultra-Z, Ultrasonic lipolysis, Bodytite, Face/neck tightening) and laser blepharoplasty. In addition, different types of botulinum toxin and fillers for wrinkles and deep folds are performed by our US-trained team of dermatologists.

Niranlada complements Chiva-Som’s wide range of services through an initial consultation using 3 –dimensional computerised facial imaging and color photography to evaluate your skin condition. The information is used as a basis to discuss your personal requirements and to evaluate which treatments or surgery best suits you. The photos become part of the “before and after” comparison so you can evaluate your improvements.

Our doctors are US–trained dermatologists or plastic surgeons with additional certified American Board of Laser Surgery who specialize in the art of aesthetic medicine, especially non-invasive laser treatment, micro invasive cosmetic surgery and anti-aging medicine. Clinical Professor Dr. Niwat Polnikorn, our head practitioner was the first to introduce laser treatment for dermatology to Thailand in 1982. He has been trained in specialty, dermatology and cosmetic surgery. He received the Diplomate Board Certificate of Dermatology in 1978, followed by cosmetic laser surgery training from world renowned Professor, Issac Kaplan at the University of Tel-Aviv, Israel. He was the Founder and Director of Ramathibodi Laser Center, Mahidol University, now regarded as the premier skin laser training center in Asia. He has also served as President of Thai Society of Cosmetic Dermatology and Surgery. He was active in clinical service, teaching and research. Hundreds of doctors from all over the world have studied and trained under his tutelage and he has published two textbooks on laser surgery. In addition, he is a written many research articles on laser surgery especially on hyperpigmentation and melasma. Clinical Professor Dr. Niwat Polnikorn has carefully selected Niranlada’s team of experienced dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons to deliver the best possible service for our customers. After treatments or surgeries, our doctors will recommend long-term topical and holistic treatments for rapid recovering and lifestyle oriented maintenance. Modern technology and holistic treatments combine to provide harmonious aesthetic rejuvenation.

An initial 15-minute consultation is complimentary with a facial skin analysis using VISIA computerised technology. Treatment or micro invasive surgery will then be performed on the next appointment at our new international standard aesthetic center.

The name Niranlada means eternal beauty, and that is what we strive for, in both mind and spirit. Niranlada Medi-Spa complements Chiva-Som’s famous traditional Wellness approach with the latest developments in both modern aesthetic treatments and micro invasive cosmetic surgery.

Laser Skin Rejuvenation

   

Healthy and beautiful skin starts below the surface in complex tissue called collagen, a basic building block that provides the foundation of your skin’s structure. Collagen is damaged or degraded by environmental factors and particularly by the sun, severe acne, and skin stretching during pregnancy. Damaged collagen makes the skin appear irregular or thin and can create “pitting”, stretch marks, fine lines and wrinkles.Unfortunately, our bodies don’t recognize the deterioration of collagen, so we don’t replenish our own natural supply. But with Laser Skin Rejuvenation we have a simple and effective stimulus that encourages a fresh, young layer of your own natural collagen.At Niranlada, we provide three techniques for laser skin rejuvenation; Revlite is the most advance system while Sciton and Coolglide are still preferred by many guests.

How does the treatment work?
Results are achieved from the inside out. A cooling mist or cool air protects and cools the epidermis, the skin’s surface layer, whilst we apply a unique laser energy in gentle pulses that passes through the epidermis to the layers of skin where collagen is formed. This triggers a repair mechanism, and your body begins to rebuild and replenish its own natural collagen. Revlite also breakdown melanins resulting in lightening of skin colour while Sciton and Coolglide directly induce new collagens. All systems can be used in all skin types.

What is the treatment like?
We can perform the treatment on any area of the skin. It’s a very relaxing process that takes only a few minutes, during which you will probably feel a warm sensation. Afterwards there will be a blush in the treated area for an hour or so, but you will be able to apply moisturizer and resume regular activities immediately. For outdoor activity a good broad spectrum sunscreen is recommended after this treatment.

What improvement will I see?
If you have acne scars, you may notice a smoother skin texture after only a few treatments. In most cases the bottom of individual scars will push out to become more even with the surrounding skin, for a healthy, more attractive appearance. Stretch mark irregularities can diminish and the stretch marks themselves become much less noticeable. For those with fine lines and wrinkles, your skin will begin to look softer and younger. For hyperpigmentation, after few session of Revlite you will observe lightening of lesions.For best results, take a series of three to five treatments performed over two to four months. Chiva-Som guests can follow their first laser rejuvenation session with a second after five days, or with treatments on their return home or to Chiva-Som. During your consultation, you will be advised as to the number of treatments recommended to achieve your desired results. Occasional follow-up treatments may be suggested to maintain or continue your improvements.

Skin Tightening with Titan

   

You can now enhance your youthful and healthy appearance without surgery, recovery time, or injections, through a new, all-natural procedure. Titan actively turns back the clock with light energy that tightens the skin on the arms, face, abdomen and legs by stimulating new collagen growth deep beneath the surface.

Unfortunately, our bodies don’t recognise the deterioration of collagen, so we don’t replenish our own natural supply. But with Laser Skin Rejuvenation we have a simple and effective stimulus that encourages a fresh, young layer of your own natural collagen.

How does Titan work?
Titan, using a safe infrared light, heats the dermis under the skin’s surface and can cause immediate collagen contraction. Afterwards, new collagen growth results in further tightening, giving a more youthful complexion with fewer lines, folds and loose skin. During the procedure, the skin’s surface (epidermis) is protected through continuous cooling.

What areas respond best to the Titan procedure?
Titan successfully treats many areas, but the abdomen, backs of the upper arm, along the jaw line and under the chin respond particularly well.

Who can be treated?
The Titan procedure successfully treats men and women of any skin type and of all ages.

How many treatments will I need?
A single treatment has produced very good results for many guests. The Chiva-Som doctor will advise you on the number and frequency of treatments recommended for you.

Are there any side effects?
Immediately following the treatment, you may notice some redness and mild swelling in the treated area. Both should dissipate within a few hours.

When will I see results?
Some see results immediately, but for most there is a gradual change over three to six months as new collagen is formed.

What do treatments feel like?
With each pulse, you will feel a brief heating sensation, which some people find perfectly comfortable, while others prefer a mild pain reliever. Your physician will advise you.

Has Titan been tested and approved?
Clinics worldwide have studied Titan carefully. It has been cleared for the treatment of wrinkles in Europe and for general dermatological use in Canada. In the US, it has been cleared for topical heating to increase local tissue temperatures and circulation.

Skin Tightening and Contouring with Thermage

   

Thermage is one of Niranlada’s non-surgical procedures for tightening loose skin, which can give you a smoother and more youthful appearance. Because there is no surgery involved, you will experience virtually no downtime and should return to normal activities immediately following the procedure.

How does it work?
Thermage delivers radio-frequency energy in the form of heat into the skin, which causes immediate tightening of collagen. New collagen then forms over time, resulting in additional tightening.

How long does each treatment take?
Including time to prepare your skin the procedure takes 20 minutes to one hour, depending on the size of the area treated.

How soon will I see results?
Most individuals see results gradually within two to six months, although some patients see results immediately.

How long will the results last?
Unpublished reports by experienced physicians indicate that results may last 18 months or longer depending on the patient’s natural aging process.

How many treatments will I need?
It typically takes just one treatment to accomplish a nice effect. However, some patients may choose to have a second treatment to obtain additional tightening. The skin will continue to improve over six months as new collagen is formed.

Does it hurt?
When the energy is applied, you’ll feel an intense but brief heating sensation. To protect the surface of your skin and keep you comfortable, a cooling spray is delivered before, during, and after each application.

What happens after treatment?
There’s no special care needed after treatment, and most patients return to their regular activities immediately. Redness and/or minor swelling may occur but it should disappear quickly.

Can I get Thermage instead of a facelift?
If you would like modest tightening of your skin without surgery then Thermage may be right for you, but it won’t provide the dramatic results of a surgical facelift. Chiva-Som’s doctors will be happy to discuss the different approaches with you.

Has Thermage been tested and approved?
Thermage received clearance from the FDA in July 2002.

Botox for Wrinkles

   

Botox, a simple, non-surgical procedure that can dramatically reduce even your toughest wrinkles within days, has provided many of Chiva-Som’s guests with a new, life-enhancing confidence.

What is Botox?
Botox is a natural, purified protein synthesized from cultured bacteria that relaxes wrinkle-causing muscles creating a smooth, rejuvenated and more youthful appearance. One ten-minute treatment relaxes the muscles that cause lines to form and keeps them relaxed for four to six months.

How does Botox work?
Once the muscles are relaxed, you cannot contract them, so the lines gradually smooth out from disuse, and new creases are prevented from forming. Botox will not “freeze” your facial expressions, it merely softens them, and because it works on target muscles selected by our experience doctor. Other muscles like those used to raise the eyebrows are not affected, so a natural expression is maintained. Reduction of undesired muscle hypertrophy especially to recontour jowl muscles is a new application of Botox.

What is the treatment like?
A tiny amount of Botox is placed in selected facial muscles via a very fine needle. No anesthetic is required, although your doctor may use ice cooling before injecting. Treatment takes around ten minutes. Many guests describe the minimal discomfort as “like an ant bite”.

What can I expect after the treatment?
Most people resume normal activities immediately. After treatment, it takes two to three days for Botox to begin taking effect. After seven days you see the full effect, which wears off gradually over four to six months, depending on the individual. To maintain the effect requires injections two to three times a year. Studies show that repeated Botox treatments can have longer effects, so you may require less frequent future treatments to maintain results.

Will my lines worsen if I stop treatment?
No. They will revert to their original appearance in six to twelve months.

Are there side effects?
There are no reported permanent side effects. Issues such as soreness, mild bruising or headache are temporary and localised to the area of injection. For eyebrow elevation, you may develop a “heavy eyelids” lasting one to four weeks.

Where can it be used?
Botox is used widely on frown lines, forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet and smile lines around the eyes. It can also lift eyebrows and open the eye for a more youthful look. Doctors report good results in nasolabial folds between the nose and mouth, perioral line (”smokers lip”), neck lines and chin dimpling or creasing. Botox can also be used in combination with collagen or laser resurfacing. Recently new application for reduction of muscle mass and recontour the area has become popular. Jowl muscles (masseter) are the most popular location for this treatment. Multiple minute intradermal injection of diluted Botox has been used by many cosmetic surgeons for skin rejuvenation with good result.

Is it safe?
Botox, Dysport and Neuronox are the three botulinum toxins approved by the Thai and US FDA in. They have been widely used with 18 years of safe and effective record. This technique was the number one cosmetic procedure from 2001 to present, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

Restylane

   

Smoothing wrinkles and folds or giving your mouth a fuller, more sensuous form is a beautiful path to increase your sense of well-being, and it requires no foreign element. Restylane gives shape with hyaluronic acid, a natural material in the body that binds water in your skin to lift and give new firmness.

What is Restylane?
Restylane is a gel of hyaluronic acid that is injected into the skin with a very fine needle. Unlike some dermal fillers, Restylane is not derived from animal substances.

How does the treatment work?
Restylane gel produces volume under the wrinkle, which is lifted up and smoothed out, adding shape to the treated area.

How long will the treatment session take?
As no pre-test is needed, the treatment can be carried out immediately, and generally takes 30 minutes, depending on the correction you wish performed.

What can be treated?
The most common areas are the glabellar lines (between the eyebrows), the nasolabial folds (from the root of the nose to the angle of the mouth), and the lips, although other sites can be treated. Very superficial or very deep wrinkles may be difficult to correct. Please consult our doctors for an assessment.

Does it hurt?
Most people find the injections relatively painless, but a topical anesthetic can be applied to the area being treated. When enhancing the lips, a local anesthetic injection is often given.

How soon will I see the results?
The results can be seen immediately.

What will I look like after the treatment?
You can expect slight redness, swelling and tenderness or an itching sensation in the treated area. The discomfort generally disappears in a few days. After a lip treatment, the lips may be swollen and uneven for up to a week.

What should I bear in mind after my treatment?
During the 48 hours after treatment we do not recommend facials or rubbing the treated area. If you have had a lip enhancement, avoid puckering your lips for the first two days. Until the initial swelling and redness have resolved, do not expose the treated area to extreme cold or intense heat (eg. in a solarium or sunbathing).

Can Restylane be removed?
No, however it dissolves naturally with time. If you feel uncertain about the desired result, you can have the treatment in steps on different occasions.

Hair Removal

   

In the modern age, lasers are the most popular and effective method for beautifying the body through hair removal. Their use is replacing electrolysis, which is often found to be time-consuming and inefficient, waxing, shaving, and depilatory creams, which have only temporary results. Lasers are specifically designed to destroy many hairs in a short time, with little chance of complications, and their effects are permanent in most subjects. Apart from those methods, Niranlada has recently introduced the comfortable and highly effective “Soprano” system for removing hair.

How does it work?
Lasers emit infrared energy through the skin, which is absorbed by its target, reducing an unwanted blood vessel, birthmark, tattoo, or in this case, hair. The laser used in hair removal targets the melanin (colour) in the hair follicle, damaging the follicle and removing the hair. Laser hair removal is safe enough to be used on all body parts, including the face, back, underarms, bikini line, legs and arms. It treats large areas at one time, and a new unique computer-guided scanning system with contact cooling tip (Soprano) automates the process, ensuring that skin is rapidly and evenly treated in a safe, fast, effective and gentle way.

Does it work for all skin types?
Our new Soprano hair removal system delivers 800 nm pulse laser beam is effective for all skin type. In dark skin individuals, the contact cooling tip prevents heat injury to the skin. This system is also fairly effective for removal of fine hair.

Is treatment permanent?
On average, each treatment will attain some permanent hair loss. So in most cases hair total removal can only be achieved after several treatments, depending on individual responses and the amount of hair to be removed. Remember that the goal may not be total hair removal, hair that remains is often lighter in color and thinner than the original. As with other treatments for unwanted hair, there is no guarantee that laser hair removal treatment will be permanent.

How many treatments will I need?
You may need three to five treatments at approximately five to eight-week intervals. There are three phases of hair growth - anagen, catagen, and telogen. Only hairs in the active growth, anagen, can be successfully treated.

Does the treatment hurt?
You may not need any anesthesia for your treatments, which most guests describe as “prickly”. Afterwards, it might feel like strong sunburn. Discomfort levels will depend on the area being treated. Usually, no specific aftercare is needed.

How long will it take for my skin to heal?
Normally the skin looks red and swollen for 48 hours, or possibly longer. The doctor can test a small area initially, if required. Occasionally, guests might develop a blistering reaction. If this happens, consult our doctor and ask for specific post-laser treatment options. There is a low risk of pigmentary changes, which you can discuss with our doctor prior to treatment.

Vein Laser Treatment

   

Thanks to modern laser therapy it is now possible to give your body beauty enhancement that extends to removal of unsightly broken and dilated veins, as well unwanted vascular lesions such as rosacea, port wine stains, and other birthmarks. The latest advances in laser technology have given us a method that is safer, faster and more effective than ever.

How does laser vein treatment work?
Lasers work by passing a specialized light through the skin that targets unwanted hair, birthmarks, tattoos, or in this case the hemoglobin (the red portion of blood) in the unwanted vessels. The heat from the laser causes the vein to break up and disappear.

What can I expect with the procedure?
Many people describe the treatment as feeling like the snap of a rubber band against the skin. There is no need for anesthetic, although you may be given an anesthetic cream, and any discomfort can be eased with the application of cool compresses. After treatment, you can immediately return to normal activities.

What areas and conditions can be treated?
All skin areas can be treated, but particularly popular are the face, neck, chest and legs. Treatable conditions include rosacea, redness, telangiectasia, spider veins, facial veins, and broken capillaries.

How soon will I see results?
Your body will reabsorb any vessels or pigment denatured by the laser over a period of time in a natural cleaning process. Most small capillaries will become invisible almost immediately since they will no longer contain blood flow.

How many treatments are necessary?
Depending on the severity of the condition, multiple treatments may be required. Improvement generally lasts for several years.

Is there a risk?
There is little risk in the treatment of these benign conditions. You will need to avoid direct sun exposure, or use a sun block of at least SPF 15 when outdoors. The most common side effect is bruising, or purpura around the treated area. This will resolve within days. Your doctor can discuss any other risks with you.

What aftercare will I need?
It is important to follow your physician’s directions. He may give you some skin care products and instructions on how to use them. This will minimize your risk of inflammation or redness and ensure the shortest recovery time.
