    Life, Dr Nantapat Supapannachart, Published on 05/07/2016

    » Tattoos were once reserved for dropouts, sailors, criminals and punks but these days you'd be hard pressed to walk down any busy Bangkok street and not see people of all ages and nationalities sporting leg tattoos, arm sleeves and even head tattoos. Now that tattoos have gone mainstream and lost their uniqueness some people are starting to rethink their ink and would like to have them removed. Another factor in many people's desire to get a tattoo removed is that old tattoos usually fade and the fine lines spread, so they don't look as good as they did when they were first done, plus tattoos tend to look better on young skin than on older, wrinkled skin.

    Life, Dr Nantapat Supapannachart, Published on 07/06/2016

    » At some point during their lives, most women are affected by cellulite. Today, there is a massive industry dedicated to banishing cellulite, but there is also a lot of misinformation out there about what it is, what causes it and how to get rid of it. We all recognise those dreaded underlying fat deposits, which give our bodies a lumpy cottage-cheese texture, but what is really going on beneath the skin to give it that dimply appearance?

    The dark side of the eye

    Life, Dr Nantapat Supapannachart, Published on 12/04/2016

    » One of the most frequent complaints I hear from my patients concerns those dreaded dark circles under the eyes. Many reveal that even when they feel energised and rested they are told by well-meaning meddlers that they "look tired" or "should get more sleep". But fatigue isn't the only cause for dark circles under the eyes; alcohol and late nights can both contribute. However, there are many other different causes for the panda eye complex.

    There's more to Botox than vanity

    Life, Dr Nantapat Supapannachart, Published on 05/01/2016

    » Botox is a purified form of botulinum toxin, a nerve poison produced by the same bacteria that causes botulism. Injections of the drug act like minuscule poison darts that temporarily blunt chemical nerve signals to certain muscles or glands, reducing their activity. It's less than two decades since the American FDA approved it for the "treatment of glabellar frown lines", but since then Botox has become one of the words, such as "Kleenex", "Band-Aid" or "Xerox", that we use with amazing regularity.

    » Forget artisan coffee roasters and tea rooms, IV drip bars are the latest hip hangouts in the US and UK where health conscious movers and shakers meet, mingle and get their fix.

A few weeks ago Rihanna tweeted a picture of herself getting an IV drip of what she called the "party-girl drip".

    Chewing the fat over lipo

    Life, Dr Nantapat Supapannachart, Published on 08/09/2015

    » People struggling to lose weight or just stay slim are often spoon-fed a smorgasbord of beliefs and theories that they're assured will all shed inches off their waistline. They range from fad diets like Beyonce's crash diet which consisted of drinking a mixture of water, cayenne pepper and maple syrup as a substitute for regular meals to quirky self-hypnosis techniques that claim to banish sugar cravings.
