Made-collagen by Thonglor ClinicThis latest treatment is called Made-collagen and is based on the most advanced facial detoxification and skin rejuvenation originating from Italy. It uses homeopathic preparations such as minerals, vitamins, enzymes and cell therapy. Developed by Professor Made (pronounced Madee), it is the latest cosmetic discovery to arrive in Thailand.
Firstly, where do you go to get this treatment? That’s easy – it’s Thonglor Clinic on Thappraya Road in Jomtien. Always searching for effective ways to stay in the forefront of medical science, this is the up-to-the-minute treatment to be offered at their clinic. Homeopathic collagen facial injections are now offered as an all-natural beautifying treatment and, best of all, it’s non-toxic, hypo-allergic, FDA approved and has no known side effects.
Homeopathic Made-collagen encourages the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid (the skin’s natural hydration). It helps skin to look its best and dramatically slows the aging process, leaving your complexion smooth and radiant. I was told that patients had noticed a decrease in uneven skin tone, hyper-pigmentation and sun spots, while sagging skin appeared lifted and rejuvenated. All the information I researched was positive; it’s an all natural product with so many constructive advantages, I was convinced and ready to undergo the procedure myself.
Since this collagen is a natural product, a series of treatments is required, which will over the period make the skin produce more of its own collagen and hyaluronic acid. Other cosmetic benefits include the flushing of toxins and dead skin cells, speeding up the metabolism and stimulating blood circulation, restoring and balancing the body’s immune radicals to prevent wrinkles, and deeply nourishing the skin.
I arrived at Thonglor Clinic and after an informative one-to-one discussion was guided to the upstairs treatment rooms. After being greeted by Dr. Thinapat Tiprata, my face was thoroughly cleaned. He then applied antiseptic spirit to the areas where the injections would be placed (this is the 16 facial acupuncture points) and commenced the treatment. Extremely thin needles are used for these injections which are administered at the surface of the skin. Honestly, the injections were virtually painless – uncomfortable in some areas but really not painful. After 20 minutes it was done, an arnica gel was applied to prevent bruising and a SPF cream, and I was ready to go home.
Before I left though I was presented with four small boxes of Guna homeopathic medicine. Thonglor Clinic desire to present the very best in holistic therapies and offer, in conjunction with the collagen injections, these Guna products for total beauty management. Guna is a leading Italian manufacturer in this field, their medicines have been conceived to restore the body’s full balance. Everyone is given a different combination of these medicines. I was prescribed three detoxification products and a hormonal balance remedy which come in the form of micro doses to be taken daily diluted in water. The most convenient way is to add 20 drops of each into a 1.5 litre bottle of water which can be kept in the fridge for drinking throughout the day.
My treatment is ongoing. In fact, I will need ten weekly treatments, but I have been advised that after two or three, a beneficial difference will be noticeable. I’ll keep Pattaya Today readers updated on the treatments and in the meantime if you’d like to investigate further just pop into Thonglor Clinic and the staff will be happy to advise on the appropriate treatment. Collagen treatments can help you age gracefully and look younger–and that’s something we’d all love, isn’t it?
Thonglor Clinic Jomtien is located on Thappraya Road, about 100 meters before Bruno’s coming from Pattaya.
