Have you been looking for the perfect Bangkok beauty clinic and felt it was like a wild goose chase? If this rings a bell, here are some fool-proof tips to choose the best clinic without a hassle.
Research Bangkok beauty clinics
Google is one of the most powerful and not to mention accurate research tools we all have at our disposal. That said, type the term “best beauty clinics in Bangkok” on Google and start shortlisting a couple of clinics. But, before jumping in, make sure that they have 5 stars or nearly as good a Google user rating. For instance, you can limit yourself from going below 4.5 stars.
You’re not all set yet.
These customer reviews on Google can be deceiving sometimes. The reason is, say only 5 customers have reviewed a particular Bangkok beauty clinic, and they all have rated 5 stars. That means this place obviously have a 5-star rating.
But the problem is, reviews of 5 customers are almost negligible. On the other hand, say another clinic has 1000 customer reviews and that place only has a 4.5-star rating. So, this means you probably should go for the latter clinic despite the slightly lower rating, since many people approve of it.
Don’t forget to type the clinic names that you found most intriguing on Facebook and check those reviews as well. If they’re up to par, you have the green light to proceed.
While you’re doing your research, it would be a good idea to check the clinics’ respective Google Maps as well. These can direct you to their locations in a jiffy.
Then, take a good look at the location of the clinic you’ve chosen. Is it accessible without a hassle from where you’re staying? Can it be reached easily by public transportation such as BTS Skytrain or MRT?
If you’re considering taking a taxi, bear in mind that Bangkok traffic can be very congested, and therefore your journey may be very slow especially during the rush hour.
Check if it’s safe
Say the reviews are good and the location suits your requirements. Next, make sure the Bangkok beauty clinic is staffed by a licensed doctor who is actually qualified to perform the services you’re about to receive. When your treatment is carried out by a licensed and qualified practitioner, you’re much more likely to be pleased with the results and there’s less risk of something going wrong. It’s always worth paying a little bit more for a reputable clinic than risking your health and safety by going for the cheapest option.
For example, Metro Bangkok Clinic offers an array of treatments including Botox, Dermal Fillers, Thermage, Microneedling, Chemical peels, High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU), etc. while infusing the expertise of doctors specialized in Aesthetic Medicine, Anti-ageing Medicine, Dermatology, etc. What’s more, their whole staff is skilled and dedicated to doing the treatments properly and safely.
Call or visit the clinic
Don’t hesitate to take the number from Google to call the clinic you’re about to receive services from. Even better, pay them a visit. Talk to the staff and inspect their overall cleanliness and facilities before plunging in.
Remember, it’s your right to do so.
Do they speak good English?
Another noteworthy tip is to find out if the staff of the clinic can speak English. Needless to say, this will make it easier to communicate with the staff and let them know your requirements without putting both parties in a pickle.
Call or message the clinic and take note of the overall communication. Are the staff interested in finding out how they can actually help you or are they just trying to sell you something you don’t want or need?
Find out whether they use genuine products
Beauty treatments such as Botox can be very affordable in Bangkok compared to prices at home. However, if a clinic advertises very cheap Botox injections or other beauty treatments, chances are you’re going to waste money and your well-being altogether.
Be cautious, especially with cheap Botox, as this may be counterfeit or watered down with saline. Call into the clinic and ask to speak to the doctor about the Botox brands they use, and while you’re there, always ask to inspect the box.
There is no one-size-fits-all game plan to hunt down the best Bangkok beauty clinic that will be committed to supplying your demands. However, you can follow the above steps and find a couple of top-notch clinics and sift them through to get to the most ideal option.
