Good health means a lot more than not being sick. At VERITA HEALTH MAHANAKHON, patients find ways to look and feel like their very best selves, too, Jinda Wedel discovers

Dr Ornkes Panyanetinad, MD, is still buzzing from the energy of her Paris lectures on anti-aging and wellness, given at the International Master Course on Ageing Science’s annual World Congress a few days ago. We are seated – lounging, really, truth be told – in the plush lobby of Verita Health MahaNakhon. There’s an oxygen bar, healthy snacks and gorgeous terrariums dotting its periphery, and hidden stealthily inside the offices, a collection of advanced medical technology.

Its neighbours are none other than L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon and Vogue Lounge. As one of the most well-known health and wellness chains that spans the globe, it seems fitting that it would rub shoulders with such sprightly establishments.

The offices of Verita Health take up about 1,000 square metres of space at MahaNakhon Cube. A muted, cool-grey and light taupe colour palette and high ceilings lend the entire centre a professional and serene feel.

Thanks to in-house facilities such as hi-tech laboratories, dark and light IV lounges, colon hydrotherapy facilities, VIP treatment rooms, an operating theatre and more, the centre is able to offer a wide range of tailored treatments. They range from non-invasive, effective procedures to surgeries. Dr Ornkes is just one of the dermatologists and anti-aging specialists at the centre, and obviously practises what she preaches – she doesn’t look a day over 25 years old!

And so when she leans forward and lays out a challenge, “Do you think I’ve had a lot of procedures done?” – also showing off a “before” photo – it’s an eye opener. There are marked differences. Now, she appears more youthful, energetic and healthy; her face shape is pleasingly altered, her eyes are brighter. And then she reveals the photo is a decade old, when she was a fresh college graduate.

“I’ve had a lot of procedures,” she says. “But no one has ever been able to tell.”
