In the fast-paced world of dermatology and medical aesthetics, the quest for continuous education is vital for innovation and achieving superior clinical outcomes. Cynosure, an industry leader with over 30 decades of innovation in dermatological and aesthetic lasers, proudly announces its partnership with esteemed dermatologist Clin. Prof. Dr. Niwat Polnikorn. The collaboration highlights Cynosure and Prof. Niwat’s shared vision and joint commitment to education and knowledge sharing, empowering healthcare professionals at every level — from nascent learners to seasoned practitioners — to harness cutting-edge technologies like Picosure® Pro, and Picosure®.

Bebe Teo, Senior Vice President of Cynosure APAC, remarks, “Our partnership with Prof. Niwat Polnikorn is a testament to our commitment to not only advancing technology but also empowering the medical community with the knowledge to leverage these advancements for the betterment of patient outcomes. Together with Prof. Niwat, we aim to raise the bar for aesthetic education and practices across the APAC region.”

A Pioneer in Laser Dermatology

Dr. Niwat's entry into the world of energy-based devices (EBD) for dermatology dates back to the early stages of laser treatments in Southeast Asia. Prof. Niwat explains, "I was influenced by the ground-breaking work of my mentor, Prof. Dr. Isaac Kaplan. After studying under him, I brought the first CO2 laser to Thailand and subsequently pioneered the use of various pigment and vascular lasers, culminating in the study of Picosure® for melasma with noteworthy results." Prof. Niwat's journey reflects a relentless pursuit of technology for better clinical outcomes.

Empowering Through Education: Learn Beyond Borders

Prof. Niwat's desire to educate stems from his dedication to addressing melasma, a condition that bears a significant social stigma in Thailand. "To conquer melasma has been my lifelong mission. Educating local doctors to treat melasma with new laser technologies has become my current goal," he shares. Prof. Niwat has opened his own international laser clinic in Hua Hin, which is equipped with modern facilities for training and treatments. This is a big step in bringing top-quality treatments and learning opportunities to places outside of big cities like Bangkok.
