W Skin and Laser Clinic Do you suntan often? Over time, the sun can have damaging effects on skin cells and quicken the visible signs of ageing. Fortunately, there are ways to reverse the signs through Limelight , an Intense Pulsed Light treatment. It’s designed to help remove blotchy pigmentation and reduce redness and fine blood vessels. A numbing cream is first applied on the face for 30 minutes before the treatment is delivered by the doctor. The Limelight photofacial takes about 20 minutes, and the pigmentation spots will flake off and fade after each session. The diffuse redness, or telangiectasia, will decrease and your mottled complexion will improve. It’s an easy, skin-pampering treatment with zero downtime. Around two to three treatments done one month apart are sufficient to attain a clear and even skin tone. For maintenance of your newly clear skin, it’s recommended that you use sunscreen whenever you head outdoors, and also to have a Limelight treatment every two to three months. #06-28 /29 Mount Elizabeth Novena Specialist Center, 38 Irrawaddy Road 6570 2528 |

Polaris Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery Areas of ageing skin can include the area around the eyes, making them look droopy and tired all the time. A quick fix for this is dermatochalasis , or the removal of excess skin from the upper eyelid. While Polaris also offers non-invasive procedures such as laser treatment and radio frequency for low-level intervention, if there are signs of lateral hooding or drooping, surgical excision is recommended. This can be done via the upper eyelid crease, by what’s known as a sub-brow/infra-brow blepharoplasty just below the eyebrow. Excess skin is removed while maintaining the natural upper eyelid crease and fold. Scarring is minimal, and the result is a seeming age reversal by years. Excess baggage on the lower eyelids can also be easily removed without leaving any external scars. An incision in the inside of the lower eyelid allows precise correction by releasing the ligament causing the condition, and allowing the removal or repositioning of excess fat. #08-05 Medical Centre, 3 Mount Elizabeth 8828 4565 |
