SWISH NEW SKIN CLINIC
A beauty and skin clinic, Wuttisak, launched its third Cambodian branch in Siem Reap on   Sivutha Boulevard earlier this year, and is now pulling in the men according to spokesman May Vichet Vibot.  

He said the centre specialises in skin whitening, anti-ageing treatment and acne removal and added, “We get a lot of customers per day. Half of them are men and this includes international visitors who are interested in our additional skin care services.”

He said that Wuttisak is a total skin care centre providing relaxation and refreshment for the skin using high technology equipment and medical cosmetics from Thailand.

“Customers can enjoy the treatment in air-conditioned and quiet treatment rooms, and the medical skin care products and cosmetics that are used during the treatment can also be purchased.”

The owner of Wuttisak, Sayam Ramasot said the main strategy in opening a Wuttisak laser centre and spa beauty skin clinic in Siem Reap was down to the tourism potential.

“Siem Reap is a tourism province which in 2012 received 2 million visitors, thus it’s good place for running a business and Cambodia has many people who wish to have a pretty face, and pretty skin,” he said.

He added there is specialist doctor on hand who uses the best medical principles combined with modern laser equipment to improve the health and appearance of customer’s skin.

Wuttisak’s CEO, Nakorn Korthiran said that the company’s beauty and skin clinics are the leaders in their field in ASEAN countries.

“Wuttisak has more than one hundred branches, and these are in Thailand, Vietnam, Myanmar and Cambodia.”

CHONG KHNEAS HEALTH CENTRE THRIVES
Lon Touch, the Health Centre chief at Chong Khneas village, said that after the opening of the new health centre in December last year, more clients are coming to receive care.

According to the health centre’s data, the staff treats over 600 cases a month and is able to provide free care to over 200 of them.

The new health centre in Chong Khneas village, 14 kilometers, from Siem Reap, was built with the support of USAID Cambodia and the Reproductive and Child Health Alliance (Racha,) which is funded by the US Agency for International Development.

The new two-storey twelve-room health centre cost $360,000, and is able to fully accommodate clients living in Chong Khneas, said Mam Bunheng Minister of Health.

He added that due to frequent flooding and poor access to clean water, many people living in Chong Khneas are susceptible to many health problems.

“Now over 6,600 people living in Chong Khneas have access to this health centre’s services,” he said.

Mr Flynn Fuller, USAID Mission Director said at the centre’s opening on December 3, “We are moving towards a healthier Cambodia and facilities like this one are the foundation that will help us avoid any more mothers dying while bringing a life into the world.”
