Not only a full-time physician running three branches of Lollana skin clinics, but also a busy medical officer with the Relief and Community Bureau of the Thai Red Cross, Dr Ploylada Thanapaisarnvorakul found rewards in working hard, being stubborn and helping others
THIS determined 36-year old lady has been in the medical profession for close to a decade. Dr Ploylada Thanapaisarnvorakul first became a physician from the desire to give back following the examples of her father and His Majesty late King Rama IX.
Why a beauty clinic?
I decided to start a beauty clinic after I did a stint of internship at such a clinic in Phuket. It felt so good to help people to feel good about themselves. I found that if the patients feel better about themselves from the way they look, their confidence level increases and they seem a different person to when they walked in.
I don’t put all my faith in surgery. The ultimate goal in anti-ageing treatments and the aesthetic medicine that I offer aims to uplift the people’s quality of life by being healthy, growing old gracefully and be happy about it. As an anti-ageing physician, it is my responsibility to see that we offer what’s best for them which might not be what the patients want sometimes.
How did you get involved with the Thai Red Cross?
I had the opportunity to attend many field trips to remote villages as a medical student, and I fell in love with it. I wanted to use my knowledge in ways that benefit as many people as possible, so I signed up with the Thai Red Cross. What I found was that the more I help, the happier I feel.
Any suggestions or beauty tips for our readers?
As a physician, I would suggest that people should be content with their looks because it makes them a unique person. Don’t follow the trends, they come and go. Focus, instead, on living a balanced and healthy way of life. Dr Ploylada also co-founded Vitaboost, a medical application that serves as a digitally personalised vitamin clinic, accessible through the push of a button. Functions include access to a medical team, patient’s health records, a user-friendly graphic monitor and more.
