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.
