Beauty Trends in 2018 To Look Out For

In 2017 we saw the rise of SkinBoosters treatment and bio-stimulating dermal fillers such as Ellanse. And now with weeks into 2018, we saw some shift in beauty trends. While we saw some medical treatments surge in popularity in the beginning of 2018, there were also some treatments that visibly became less popular over the last few months. We speak to one of the most sought-after aesthetic doctors in Singapore, Dr. Siew Tuck Wah, to tell us more about what he believes to be the next big trends for 2018 and what makes them so special.

1. Rejuran Skin Healer / PDRN Skin Therapy

Commonly referred to as Rejuran Healer, PDRN Therapy, Miracle Healer Injection, the content of Rejuran Healer is made of biological molecules called polynucleotides. They are made of nucleotides bonded together. Some people many find the term ‘nucleotides’
familiar, because they are the basic units that form the DNA. The DNA extract in Rejuran or PDRN Therapy is obtained from a fish source, typically salmon. Salmon DNA has been used by doctors to treat wounds and promote skin healing for several years. In recent times, scientists have made slight changes to the formula for the use on the face for anti-aging purposes. The doctor uses a micro-needle to administer small doses of Rejuran Healer under the skin to promote skin renewal and improve overall skin texture. People who have undergone this treatment have raved about the remarkable results including smaller pores, less visible fine lines and wrinkles and improved acne scars.

2. Dual Yellow Laser Treatment

Unlike other conventional laser treatments, Dual Yellow Laser is specially designed to penetrate deep into the skin without breaking the skin surface. Relying on copper bromide based laser technology, Dual Yellow Laser offers multi- wavelength capability for different types of skin conditions. It is the gold standard for treating several skin abnormalities such as stubborn acne, bulky or vascular lesions, recurring melasma, and other severe pigmentation. Besides treating skin conditions, Dual Yellow Laser is also effective for general skin rejuvenation to reduce appearance of fine lines and for immediate skin brightening. Another unique function of Dual Yellow Laser is its capability to treat dark eye circles by breaking down the dark pigments under the eyes Being able to deliver remarkable results without any downtime, Dual Yellow Laser has naturally taken center stage of anti-aging treatment since the beginning of 2018.

3. Dysport Facelift Treatment

Dysport Facelift Treatment creates a natural, yet visible lift with almost no downtime for the patient. Using botulinum toxin to subtly lift saggy skin is a new concept devised by doctors to lift and tighten the skin non-surgically. Botulinum toxin is often used by doctors to relax overactive muscles for treating various conditions. In this case, a non-surgical facelift can be achieved by injecting Dysport into the superficial layers of the skin instead of the muscles. The treatment causes enlarged pores to constrict. After the treatment, the skin becomes firmer, pulling excess skin upwards to produce a subtle lift to the face. The effects continue to improve over the next few days as Dysport dissipates into the deeper muscles to help them relax and reduce wrinkles. At the same time, the treatment also helps to stimulate collagen production so that the skin on the face remains elastic and firm. Dr. Siew is the Medical Director and co-founder of Radium Medical Aesthetics.

5 Solutions To Help You Look Younger Than Your Actual Age

5 Solutions To Help You Look Younger Than Your Actual Age

In this current day and age where youth is the most precious thing in the world, we will try to do anything to look young – men and women alike. Large skincare companies are leveraging on the fear of aging in people to build successful billion-dollar empires by selling ridiculously priced anti-aging creams.

Even though these expensive skin care creams are often marketed with claims that they will make people look younger, truth is, outcome of these topical skin care creams are modest at best.

We sit down with one of the most sought-after medical aesthetic doctors in Singapore to identify some non-surgical anti-aging treatments that actually work, instead of relying on skin care products that are delusive and exorbitant.

1) Non-Surgical Skin Lifting Treatments

Just over a decade ago, when people talk about looking younger, the only option was to undergo a surgical facelift. Back in those days, a surgical facelift was a rather major procedure which had elements of surgical risks. In addition, results were often unnatural as the skin was pulled back too tight.

Thanks to the advanced medical technologies, doctors have devised non-surgical skin lifting treatments for facial rejuvenation. Using dissolvable threads lined with anchors, doctors carefully place these threads under the skin using a fine needle. After the 40-minute procedure, your skin will be visibly lifted as the anchors reposition them higher to where they once were. The two most common non-surgical thread lift treatments are Silhouette

2) Soft Thread Lift and PDO Thread Lift.

  

A less invasive option is to use high intensity focused ultrasound to heat up the deep layers of the skin to induce collagen production. Over the next few months after the treatment, the skin will gradually tighten and lift the saggy skin. This treatment is often offered as Ultherapy or HIFU treatment in Singapore.

3) Laser Treatments for Brighter, Fairer Skin

Skin discoloration can occur in the form of age spots, freckles, or melasma in older people. The visible appearance of pigmentation can add several years to your look by making you look dull and unattractive.

With more than ten years of experience seeing patients with pigmentation issues, Dr. Siew put together an effective pigmentation treatment that is highly acclaimed by his patients. Called the Skin Illumination Program, it is a 5-session program that consists of not one but four different laser treatments to target different types of pigments. Depending on what treatment is needed, each session can be packed with Dual Yellow Laser, Skin Brightening Laser, LASEMD Skin Perfecting Laser, or Ruvy Touch Pigment Laser.

4) Liquid Facelift with Dermal Fillers

As we age, we lose hyaluronic acid that is naturally found in our skin. Hyaluronic acid is an important component for hydration and moisture retention. Skin starts to lose hyaluronic acid as early as mid-20s. The skin sags and fine lines start to appear on the face as we age, revealing your real age to the world. This can be easily addressed by replenishing the loss moisture with dermal fillers. Dermal filler in Singapore is a very popular non-surgical way to rehydrate and rejuvenate the skin via a series of microinjections. Depending on the severity of the skin condition and the result you want to achieve, the doctor may recommend you to undergo a course of 3-4 treatments.

Be amazed by the restoration of youthful skin with a brighter, dewy and radiant complexion after every session of dermal filler treatment.

5) Laser Treatment for a Smoother Complexion

People tend to see bigger pores, crepey skin, and fine lines because of intrinsic aging. Scars and lacklustre skin texture can also make you look weather-beaten and tired. Give your complexion a boost with our Skin Restoration Program that consists of 5 sessions of CO2 Skin Resurfacing Laser treatment, followed by a LED Red Light treatment to sooth the redness. eCO2 Skin Resurfacing Laser treatment delivers deep dermal benefits which includes stimulation of collagen and improvement in overall skin texture and elasticity.

At Radium Medical Aesthetics, we recognize that everyone’s skin is unique and therefore requires personalized care. We employ a very customized treatment program to address your beauty concerns and recommend the best treatment program that will benefit you most based on your budget.

How to Decide What to Do with Your Mole for Better Fortune?

How to Decide What to Do with Your Mole for Better Fortune?

Renaye & Paul of Alchemy Consultancy Services tells you what to do and what not to do with your mole.

What do Cindy Crawford, Marilyn Monroe and TVB actress Nancy Sit have in common? If you guessed their famous mole – you’re right.

They come in all shapes and sizes but it’s general opinion that they are not really attractive to have; especially of all places, on the face.

But it seems that mole have a peculiar nature, and when celebrities reach iconic status and their moles become part of their distinguishing feature, people started changing their opinions about the dark spots.

A well known feature in physiognomy (face-reading), moles can not only affect the way you look, but apparently your life as well! With surgery and make-up, one can easily remove them for cosmetic reason, but you might wish to consult our list provided by Alchemy Consultancy Services to see if it might be a good idea to leave them on – and hopefully have as blessed a life as the above celebrities.

Forehead

Moles on the forehead can usually be covered by our hair, but if your relationship with family is not the greatest, it might be a good idea to remove it. For guys, it’ll keep you distant from your family, both physically as well as emotionally. Also, you might find it hard to get recognition from superiors at work. As for ladies, you get good fortune – but in exchange for a poor romantic relationship. But if it’s close to the hairline, then it will attract wealth!

Remove it? – Unless it’s near the hairline, we say yes!

Scalp

It’s a little hidden but you might want to get someone to search through your locks for a mole on your head. Having one means an extra boost of good luck and it can even turn misfortune aside and create a good thing from the bad! Amazing!

Remove it? No! Keep it!

Chin

If you have moles on your chin, you might want to see if it’s a faint or well-formed mole. if faint, you are not going to have a very stable life, constantly relocating and even job-hopping. But if it’s nice spot, as you reach middle-age, your life will improve with better luck, and you will enjoy a good relationship with your kids when you have them.

Remove it? Only if it’s faint or an odd shape.


Cheekbones

High cheekbones are great but moles? Not so much. The good thing is that you’re an independent and conscientious worker. Your dedication at work might be marred by your lack of PR skills and your EQ with colleagues can land you in disfavour. You will come across self-centred. A mole here also attracts lawsuits.

Remove it? Yes please.

Ear

With ears, if you have a mole on the back, be prepared for a poor relationship with your parents. This applies if you have it at the top of your ears too. If it’s near the middle, you’ll be easily taken advantage of by people around you. And if it’s at the bottom, you won’t have much luck with money.

Remove it? We say yes.

Eyes

When it comes to moles at the end of your eyes, it’s a double-edged sword. On one hand you’ll have plenty of luck with people of the same sex. With the opposite, you’ll appear attractive, charming and flirtatious. This unfortunately can backfire, and make you “dabble” even when you’re committed. First marriages can be fraught with difficulties. If the mole is especially black and even a little glossy, you’ll gain enough favour from the opposite gender that it’ll really help with networking, but beware of being paranoid in your relationships. If the mole is below the eyes, you’ll experience rocky marriages and partners that are either infidel or will leave the relationship.

Remove it? Generally, yes.

Eyebrows

If you’ve got a mole in your eyebrows, congratulations! No matter on the left or right, having one in your brows portent good luck and longevity. You are also a diligent and responsible worker, and you’re charitable to boot! If the mole is especially well-shaped and dark, then you’ll easily get support from the people around you.

Remove it? No way!

Nose

The placement of the mole on your nose will affect its influence. At the side, it’s not great for work. Career advancement will be slow and it’ll be hard to gain trust from colleagues. Your financial state will always be unstable due to your spendthrift habits though this will improve with age. If near your nostrils, especially for women, your hormones will be unstable resulting in mood swings and irregular periods. If along the length of the nose, watch out for physical ailments with your gastric and spine.

Remove it? Yes!

Lips

Lips are a common area for moles to appear. If you’ve got it above your lip, you’ll find it easy to make friends but your romantic relationships might be a little turbulent. Sporting at the ends of the mouth, you’ll tend to attract gossip and be a little argumentative. If below, you’ll be a great cook, though a fussy eater, and you’ll be a nurturing figure to the family. Although you’ll attract a lot of attention from the opposite gender, take care that it doesn’t get you into complicated situations.

Remove it? This is dependant on the influence you want to keep but generally, yes, especially if the negative ones are keenly felt.

Moles can be bane or blessings, but one thing’s for sure – we recommend getting professional removal to prevent infections and unsightly scars! Now that is definitely not a good thing by any tradition!
