Christmas is the most anticipated time of the year and it’s just a few weeks until you see friends and family again! Have you prepared yourself to look your best this festive season?
This season is a beautiful time of the year and we all want to look beautiful too. And if you’re among those who have not prepared for the season, or if you may already be dealing with skin and beauty issues you’ll want to solve, fret not! Getting your glow doesn’t happen overnight but we’re here to help you!
HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound)
SMAS layer is a thin, band-like muscle which covers the lower two-thirds of the face as well as the neck. As we age, SMAS will loosen which results in a sagging face.
Treatment of the saggy face aims at tightening SMAS layer. In surgical facelift, surgeons will remove a section of excess SMAS tissue and skin, followed by tightening and suturing.
However, for non-invasive facelift, we use HIFU to heat up the SMAS layer with thermal-coagulation effect (heat-induced clotting/denaturation of tissue). This action will stimulate collagen and tighten SMAS, resulting in a face lifting effect. The focused beams can also melt the unwanted fats in the jowl and jawline while firming the skin.
The optimum results occur after 1 month as your body naturally regenerates collagen and elastin. Collagen provides strength to skin structure while elastin helps skin to resume their shape after stretching. Together, they help to counteract saggy and wrinkly skin by providing rigidity and elasticity.
BTX is known to be a neurotoxin that works by blocking the nerve signals sent to your muscles.
Jaw BTX is regularly practiced for treatments for bruxism (teeth clenching or grinding – mostly unconsciously – that causes jaw pain, tightness, headaches, and even ear pain). Jaw muscles (masseter) are known to be the main chewing muscles located at the angle of the jaw. Constant chewing or teeth grinding (bruxism) can cause these muscles to be enlarged which then leads to a square shaped face. By relaxing and shrinking these muscles, it results in a slimmer face and stops teeth grinding.
By injecting BTX into the jaw muscles relaxes it and makes it more difficult to contract – this providing relief to the related jaw pain.
Chin fillers injections are known to be non-surgical procedures that help contour and define the chin. It is a well-known procedure that helps people who are self-conscious about their side profiles and wish to have a more balanced facial structure.
Other than Jaw BTX, these fillers make the face appear more V shaped and feminine looking. They add more definition between the face and neck, thus reducing the appearance of double chin. It involves injecting dermal fillers, which are gel-like substances, into the soft tissues of the chin. They are usually another alternative to a permanent chin implant surgery.
Thermage is a non-invasive, safe and proven procedure that can help tighten, contour and smoothen your skin so you can achieve a youthful appearance. Since it helps stimulate collagen, your skin will continue to improve automatically. The benefit of this procedure is that it doesn’t require surgery at all.
Anyone can benefit from an increased collagen production after Thermage especially on the face! It can be used to redefine the contours along the chin and jawline even soften fine lines and wrinkles! Because of its subtle penetration without melting any fats, it is suitable for treating wrinkles and fine lines. Even better, it can even treat sensitive areas such as the eye area of forehead.
Thermage uses radiofrequence (RF) energy to penetrate the skin surface. This causes the formation, remodeling and deposition of new collagen. Additionally, the heat helps improve blood flow which then speeds up the fatty layer’s metabolism. As a non-ablative treatment, the regenerative process takes place underneath the skin’s surface while maintaining the skin surface. Therefore, Thermage offers a long-lasting skin tightening with lifting effect.
Pico Laser is everyone’s favourite treatment for skin tightening as it can help remove pigmentation, acne scars and uneven skin tone. It works by shattering the pigments on your skin which are then metabolised by the body naturally. Although the pulses of energy are highly concentrated, the laser’s effect is gentle onto the outer layer of the skin.
Clarity laser is known to be a multipurpose laser with dual wavelength that can safely treat unwanted hair, pigmentation and vascular lesions in all skin types. Like Pico Laser, it provides higher pulse energy and power to support higher rep rates with larger spots that directly lead to better and faster treatment time especially for laser hair removal.
The laser itself also helps reduce redness and veins on the skin. The laser energy that is absorbed by the blood vessels and converted to heat which shrinks them to greatly reduce or eliminate their appearance – including rosacea, facial veins, spider veins and broken capillaries.
The best part about Thermage is that it can be done on different parts of your body too! Since it has collagen-boosting properties, it can be used to improve the tone and texture of sagging, aged and wrinkled skin on your body. Because of its versatility and non-invasive nature, it has become one of the most popular treatments that can help with recontouring bodies without diet, exercise or downtime.
It works by using radiofrequency technology to heat the deep, collagen-rich layers of the skin while the tip vibrates and cools the surface to help aid in patient comfort. The applied heat separates the water molecules from the fibrous collagen causing an immediate contraction resulting in skin tightening.
fter at least 45-90 minute treatment, there will be an immediate improvement on the skin tone and texture
of the body. There will be reduced or softened wrinkles and firmer overall look. The body itself will gradually restore its lost collagen after Thermage treatment has been applied.
Slim Fit is a non-invasive body contouring treatment using advanced electromagnetic stimulators for muscle building & fat reduction. It is the most advanced electro-magnetic stimulator with HIFEM (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic) technology. It induces supramaximal muscle contractions not achievable by voluntary action.
When exposed to such contractions, the muscle tissue is forced to adapt extreme conditions. The muscle responds with deep remodeling of its inner structure, i.e., the growth of myofibrils (muscle hypertrophy) and creation of new protein strands and muscle fibres (muscle hyperplasia). This process results in increased muscle density and volume.
With this body contouring procedure, it removes or destroys the fat cells in your body. Once they are gone, these fat cells cannot regenerate or be replaced. This helps to remove stubborn bulges of fat that are difficult to get rid of with exercise or dieting.
That’s how effective SlimFit is!
ReduStim is a medical device based on BioStimology, a low frequency alternating BioMagnetic filed is completely harmless and does not cause any adverse effects on the body. With over 20 years of clinical studies, this painless action is based on muscular stimulation without causing any destructive cellular process.
The patient will put on a bodysuit that emits electromagnetic energy to stimulate muscle contractions and promote lipolysis (fat melting). The suit is designed to transmit electromagnetic energy at specific areas such as calves, knees, outer thighs and abdomen. The low frequency alternating magnetic field will open the calcium channel at the muscle level. This action also stimulates muscle contractions.
Muscle contraction subsequently induces energy consumption in the form of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) which calls for natural lipolysis (breakdown of fat cells to release ATP) from visceral and subcutaneous fat.
EnCurve uses contactless radiofrequency (RF) energy to heat up fat cells (adipocytes) up to 45 degree Celcius, triggering the cells into programmed cell death (apoptosis). It is designed to deliver a specialized frequency (27.12 Mhz) to selectively target adipocytes, without harming the surrounding tissues. The denatured/damaged fat cells will then be excreted and permanently removed from the body by the lymphatic and immune system.
EnCurve patented RF technology also tightens the skin and improves cellulite at the same time. EnCurve has several advantages, for example, it can treat wider area per session and you won’t feel pain during the treatment. It is non-invasive and uses comfortable technology for reducing your fat cells without any surgery.
Drink plenty of water (2 litres a day) starting 1 day before
and for 3 days after the treatment to assist the body in removing the fat cells effectively. Those with implanted electronic devices such as a cardiac pacemaker are not allowed to do the treatment.
With the countdown to Christmas underway, there is no doubt that everyone is planning their beauty looks for the upcoming party season. but with the weather already causing chaos to our skin, getting ready to glow for the festivities seems like a never-ending battle along with the month’s celebration can do their fair share of damage too!
Enjoy a healthy looking skin and body this year with our Christmas specials!
