Mendis Aesthetics Our skin can start to sag due to pregnancy, weight fluctuations and slow collagen production as we age. While cosmetic surgery is a common solution, it can be daunting to some. Mendis Aesthetics offers an alternative: a facelift without the knife! Known as Thermage and HIFU , these procedures help tighten and contour skin and its underlying tissue without incisional surgery. Thermage uses radiofrequency waves to stimulate the natural production of collagen in the dermis, while HIFU uses High Intensity Focused Ultrasound waves that have the same effect and also penetrate deeper into the fat and SMAS (Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System) layer for tightening. If you have low pain tolerance, fret not, as a topical numbing cream is used before the procedure. Additionally, Thermage includes both a cooling spray and a vibration device to ease discomfort. As both treatments involve heat, you should avoid sun exposure or the application of strong creams prior to the appointment. There’s no downtime so you can return to your normal activities immediately afterwards. Expect results to show up over the following two to three months as new collagen works to lift and tighten. Then you can say hello to more youthful-looking and firmer skin!

Angeline Yong Dermatology At this clinic, anti-ageing procedures run the gamut from energy-based devices to a variety of injectables, as Dr Angeline Yong believes it’s important to have a wide repertoire of tools to manage each patient holistically. As a leading dermatologist and dermatological surgeon who’s also an officially appointed APAC Key Opinion Leader for Cynosure and the Singapore trainer for Ultherapy, Dr Angeline offers a combination bespoke approach to anti ageing treatments for more natural results. An example is Exilis Elite , a radiofrequency device that helps tighten skin and reduce wrinkles. When paired with Ultherapy, the treatment can target different levels of skin for a more complete rejuvenating and lifting treatment. No surgery is needed, and there’s no downtime either. This non invasive procedure firms up sagging skin in the face and body, and can also be used to reduce fat, and target the intimate areas to treat urinary leakage from childbirth and ageing. Morpheus 8, meanwhile, is a revolutionary new Fractional Microneedling Radiofrequency (RF) device that provides unparalleled subdermal remodelling. This latest addition can penetrate multiple depths and ablate deep tissue for strong stimulation, while providing gentle bulk heating of the skin for overall tightening. #02-04 and #03-02 Gleneagles Medical Centre, 6 Napier Road 6252 0026 | 6592 1311 |
