Aesthetic Dermatology Services

Not everyone is born with great skin. Just like the rest of us, our model DINDI had her fair share of acne breakouts, uneven skin tone and lack of skin luster. But that did not stop her from pursuing her dream. After finishing her dentistry degree, she went into modeling. Her passion together with her daily skin regimen, gave her the skin that she deserves. You can achieve this too! 

 

Over time, with the effects of the sun and gravity, we will eventually form darkened pigments, melasma, wrinkles, deep folds, and other signs of skin aging. But we can help delay this by maintaining a healthy lifestyle, a good skin regimen, and the application of new found knowledge and technology in skin and body health.

 

Maintenance and Skin Protection is the key to anti-aging!

Neuromodulators
(Botulinum Toxin)

Enter botulinum toxin, one of the most important neuromodulators to hit the field of facial rejuvenation. Short of a surgical facelift, this substance is the most popular way to reduce facial wrinkles.

 

Botulinum toxin can be used as a wrinkle treatment to smoothen Frown lines, Crows feet, Forehead furrows, and Skin bands on the neck. It is also used to Decrease Jaw Prominence, Minimize Chin Dimpling, Decrease Excessive Sweating from the Axilla, Palms or Soles, and may be a good adjunct for Migraine Headache.

 

Injections of this substance blocks muscular nerve signals, which then weakens the muscle so that it can't contract and diminishes your unwanted facial wrinkles.

 

Neuromodulators can be combined with other cosmetic skin procedures such as chemical peels, dermal fillers or microdermabrasion to further improve your results. This combination of therapies can even help to prevent the formation of new lines and wrinkles.

IV Therapy and Nutrition
(Glutathione / Vit C / Collagen / Placenta / Vitamins / L-Carn / IV Laser Chelation)

Free radicals and oxidative stress play an important role in the development and progression of many brain disorders and degenerative diseases.  Glutathione is a master antioxidant and it plays an important protective and regenerative role for both brain and body.  Free radicals and oxidative stress are neutralized by Antioxidants such as Glutathione and Vitamin C.  Heavy metals are flushed out by Chelation Therapy.


Taking Glutathione or Multivitamins itself as a supplement does not significantly boost cellular glutathione and multivitamin levels, since it breaks down in the digestive tract before it reaches the cells.  However, intravenous glutathione or multivitamin therapy along with proper lifestyle changes are effective in boosting intracellular levels of glutathione and vitamins. Plus, glutathione has the added side effect benefit of lightening and brighteing the skin. 

 

Other Aesthetic Injectables available are:

  • Mega-Dose Vitamin C Therapy for boosting the immune system, for collagen production, for fighting Cancer Cells, or as an adjunct in your chemotherapy / radiation therapy.

  • Collagen, Placenta and Fresh Cell Therapy to increase skin renewal, promote collagen production and brighten the skin

  • L-Carnitine Therapy for increased burning of excess body fat 

  • Multivitamin Therapy for detoxification and immune boosting 

  • Laser Chelation Therapy for heavy-metal detoxification

Mesotherapy
(Lipo-Dissolve)

Pioneered by the French, Mesotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure that is widely used in Europe to treat various conditions. Tiny "medicinal bullets" are delivered directly into the mesoderm (middle layer of skin) that are highly specific to the condition being treated.

 

Among its many applications, Mesotherapy can be used to eliminate cellulite, to provide anti-aging benefits, and to eliminate localized fat deposits.

 

Mesotherapy injections generally are a solution of various vitamins, minerals, enzymes, plant extracts, anesthetics, medications and amino acids. The ingredients in the solution depend on your individual treatment needs and the desired effect you want to achieve.

Skin Rejuvenation

(PRP / Chemical Peel / Phototherapy / Cautery)

Everyone wants to have clear, flawless and supple skin, with much  less wrinkles. Skin Rejuvenation is a must, and the best treatment for that is through a multi-modal approach. Depending on the skin type and amount of visible scarring or photo-aging, an aesthetic protocol to rejuvenate your skin shall be advised by your physician.

 

Therapies for rejuvenation:

  • Chemical Peel - Using a chemical solution, the dead surface of the skin is sloughed off so that new skin may be regenerated and revealed.

  • Dermabrasion - Using a crystal-tipped instrument, the outer surface of the skin is mechanically removed so that new skin may regenerate. 

  • Platelet-Rich Plasma - With the use of your own blood, which is filled with growth factors, it is then activated and returned to your skin as a dermal filler and as a skin booster to induce the production of collagen and brighten the skin. 

  • Phototherapy - The heat generated by phototherapy will induce collagen production and skin renewal.

  • Cautery - Using a high-end radio-frequency (RF) device, skin lesions such as warts, syringoma, milia, moles and others, are cauterized for removal.

Laser Dermatology
(FIREXEL Fractional CO2 Laser / SKINLIGHT Q-Switch ND:YAG Laser)

FIREXEL Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing

Fine lines and wrinkles, together with acne scars and mild sunspots, are all addressed by fractional laser resurfacing. The CO2 laser goes deep into the skin to stimulate new collagen formation which lifts the scar and also renews the surface skin thus improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well. This laser is also used to improve other scars and stretchmarks of the body.  

 

SKINLIGHT Q-Switch ND:YAG Laser

Excess melanin under the skin are seen as unnatractive dark pigmentations. These dark areas of the skin can be softened and broken down into smaller pigments using Q-Switch Laser by scattering them into easily removeable size. The heat produced by the laser also helps tone the skin and mildly induces collagen remodelling, thus improving the appearance of whiter skin with a glowing appearance.

Body Sculpting
(Radio-Frequency and Ultrasonic Cavitation)

Ultrasound Fat Removal

Reduce fat deposits and target cellulite from specific areas of your body, where you need it most. Like liposuction, focused ultrasound is able to target fat from specific areas of your body by creating a shockwave which  breaks down the fat cells and allows the body to flush them away. However, unlike liposuction, there is no pain and no recovery time. It is non-invasive with amazing results! Using ultrasound waves, lipocavitation is ideal for people seeking fat removal from a specific area such as the hips, thighs, buttocks, stomach or arms and a more contoured shape.

 

Radio-Frequency Skin Tightening

Radio Frequency or RF treatment heats the subcutaneous skin fibres which cause shrinkage, and induces collagen remodelling, thus improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The skin becomes more smooth and compact with improved skin tone and elasticity.

 

Please Note: This treatment is not a weight loss treatment. An ideal candidate is someone who is seeking fat reduction in a specific area. It is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle with a healthy eating plan and regular exercise to optimise the benefits of the treatment.

Dermal Fillers
(Hyaluronic Acid)

Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in your body. High concentrations are found in soft connective tissues and in the fluid surrounding your eyes. It's also in some cartilage and joint fluids, as well as skin tissue. It is extracted and reformulated and now has become one of the most popular kinds of injectable fillers. Brand names include Restylane, Juvéderm, Perlane, and Revolax. Hyaluronic acid is not derived from animal sources.

 

Hyaluronic acid filler acts like an inflated cushion to support facial structures and tissues that may have lost volume or elasticity due to normal aging. It also brings water to the surface of skin to keep it looking fresh and supple.

 

In the last few decades, various synthetic forms of hyaluronic acid have been developed and used to correct deep facial lines such as the Nasolabial Folds and Glabellar Lines. They are also used in facial augmentation for cheeks, chin, nose and lips. Other areas of use are the Temporal Hollows, Tear Trough, and Marionette Lines. 

Collagen-Induction Therapy
(Microneedling / PRP)

The principle behind Collagen Induction Therapy, also called Skin Needling, is simple: to stimulate the body's own production of collagen. This is accomplished by causing a minute injury to the dermis, which results in the start of the wound healing cascade.

 

The instrument used is an automated microneedling device comprised of a series of fine, sterile needles, which are used to puncture the skin and create microchannels on the skin surface to promote collagen formation.

 

Results last long, especially after a few sessions have been achieved. Also, Results improve as the body takes time to generate new collagen. The patient will see continual improvement as well as immediate improvement. The procedure may take about 15 minutes to over an hour, depending on the area to be treated, and the skin vitamins to be infused post-procedure. The patient must be anesthetized, usually with a topical cream that helps with patients comfort.

 

It is very important that the patients continue to use topical vitamins A, C, and D after treatment to ensure the production of healthy collagen and elastin.

 

The procedure has been successful in treating peri-oral wrinkes, the appearance of stretch marks, facial and acne scarring, and rejuvenation of sun damaged skin.

Sclerotherapy

(Varicose Veins)

Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure used to treat varicose veins and “spider veins.” During sclerotherapy, the physician injects a solution directly into the affected vein which irritates the lining of the vessel, causing it to swell and stick together. Over time, the vessel turns into scar tissue that fades from view. Sclerotherapy is a well-proven procedure and has been used since the 1930s.

 

Sclerotherapy is performed in a doctor’s office in an out-patient setting. The treatment area is cleansed and the solution is injected directly into the blood vessel, using very fine needles. The number of veins injected in one session is variable, depending on the size and location of the veins, and the patient’s overall medical condition.

Hair Removal

(Intense Pulse Light)

Excessive or unsightly facial and body hair can be upsetting and uncomfortable for men and women, as well as being difficult and inconvenient to remove. There are many methods of hair removal though most are messy and temporary. IPL treatments are the safest and most effective way to permanently reduce unwanted facial and body hair fast.

 

IPL permanent hair reduction is a popular, non-invasive treatment that uses specific wavelengths of light to permanently reduce unwanted facial and body hair without affecting the surrounding skin. It works on the ‘Theory of Extended Photothermolysis’. This occurs when the melanin (dark pigments) in your hair absorbs the light and converts it to heat, which radiates to the surrounding cells that form the hair. If enough heat is produced it will destroy these cells, thus preventing further hair growth.

Non-Surgical Facelift
(High Intensity Ultrasound / Korean Ultra V Threadlift)

ULTRALIFT High Intensity Focused Ultrasound

True facelift should not only target the surface skin but should ensure that the deep muscles of the face remain firm and tight. Not all energy based machines reach the proper depth. Only the High Intensity Focused Ultrasound reaches 4mm deep which target the correct layer of the skin and bring about a firmer and well-contoured appearance. It aslso sitmulates collagen synthesis which improve skin texture as well.   

 

ULTRA V LIFT Advanced Korean Threadlift

Threads are the new popular procedure in the market. These are safe threads inserted into the face to stimulate collagen and also produces skin tightening and contouring as well. The threads dissolve safely in 6-9 months but the effects lasts long, around 1-2 years. From jawline contouring, to pouchy cheek deflation, to face contouring, and nose augmentation. Threads can do it all!

Medical Weight Loss
(HCG Therapy)

Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) is a hormone that is normally produced by the placenta during pregnancy. One of its functions is to support the pregnancy by utilizing the fat stores of the body and transforming them into energy for both mother and child.

 

The mechanism of action of HCG can now be used to help boost a person's abilty to shed the abnormal fat stores of the body. It can be safely used by both men and women in a medically-supervised manner.
