Remember, presenting the best version of yourself is an auspicious way to start the year. It’s a personal care version of clearing out the old and bringing in the new.

With plenty of instant beauty touches that will leave you looking naturally refreshed everybody will surely notice the better you!

Love Your Look with These Instant Changes

  1. New Haircut

Where to start? While you’re making reservations to visit a skin care specialist in Singapore before they close shop on New Year’s eve, invest in a good haircut.

A classic bob draws onlookers’ eyes up the diagonal from the chin to the nape of your neck. This angle creates an illusion of higher jaw and lifted cheekbones to offset sagging skin.

If you are not comfortable with overhauling your hair, little changes that will bring out your bone structure or frame your face in a different way will do. Full bangs that are side swept frame your face for a youthful look. If bangs are not your style, a side part can do the trick.

  1. Pedicure, Manicure and Hand Rejuvenation

No one will inspect your feet under your new (red) shoes, but a good pedicure feels like you’ve spring-cleaned all the nooks and crannies of your physical temple.

Don’t forget to have those fingernails groomed, too! You want to sport elegant manicure when you start doling out those juicy oranges and red angbao packets!

You don’t have to wear gloves to hide those aged-looking hands either. After doing your round of shopping, visit a filler doctor in Orchard Road to have those digits plumped up.

  1. Wrinkle Treatment to Remove Angry ‘11s’, Forehead Lines and Crows Feet

With all the things that you need to do before New Year’s eve, you may think that you can barely squeeze in a visit to an aesthetic clinic in Scotts Road in time for the reunion dinner.

But worry not (watch those frown lines) because there are plenty of instant touches that will take years of your face, and infuse you with an air of youthful glow in the time it takes your manicure to dry. At the hands of an anti-aging specialist in Singapore, you need not worry of downtime or unnecessary waiting for the results to take effect.

Since looking grumpy at the start of the year is a big no-no, banish that “angry 11” with a treatment that can be completed faster than waiting for you bak kwa to bake in the oven. Deep wrinkles that need serious attention can also be treated with Botox.

Cutis Liquid Face Lift

A quick 10-minute injection by a Botox doctor in Singapore can wipe years off your forehead, and give you a more cheerful disposition for the year ahead.

  1. Look Refreshed and Youthful with Dermal Fillers

You wouldn’t want to look like a Halloween character when everyone around you celebrates, would you?

Balancing the year-end books will likely leave you with dark under-eyes and sagging eyebags, making you looking old and out of place when everything else you wear is new. Plump up those tear troughs with dermal fillers – safe injectable gel that restores loss of volume in the skin – so you look fresh and well-rested even after pulling several shifts.

For fine smile lines and nasolabial folds that are beginning to show, dermal fillers can make them disappear gently. Dermal fillers also work well for plumping the lips restoring its defined shape.

Dermal fillers also work best to sharpen the chin and increasing the height of the nose bridge resulting to a more contoured and balanced facial appearance. There are several aesthetic clinic in Orchard nowadays which makes it more convenient to do your treatment after a quick shopping spree.

  1. Skin Rejuvenation Using Medical Grade Facials

But if you prefer a gentle skin rejuvenation treatment that will also tighten your skin, reduce fine lines and brighten your complexion then a medical-grade facial is your best option.

skin care specialist

Medical-grade facials are gentle facial treatment that uses clinical-grade products and procedure to deeply penetrate the skin to address multiple skin concerns such as acne, skin laxity, dull skin and more. An example is Advanced Contouring Facial that works for all skin types especially those showing wrinkles or skin laxity.

If you are really pushed for time but want a quick skin rejuvenation then medical-grade facial is a good fit since there are no skin preps involved and little to none downtime to consider.

To buff up your skin to a new shine, and wipe away uneven tone and texture that working nights and overtime normally leaves your skin, try pampering your face with a Brightening Facial.

On the other hand, dry and tired skin benefits well from Deep Hydrating Facial, lavishing your skin with moisture so you look dewy to match those juicy mandarin oranges you’re going to give away. Even better, all treatments are done in a spa or a medical aesthetic clinic and only take up to an hour to complete. See a dermatologist in Orchard Road in between your shopping sprees.

  1. Have a Clear Skin with PhotoFacial Pigmentation Treatment

For serious patients who want to get rid of freckles, sun spots and other pigmentation, you may consider Limelight Photofacial. It uses Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Technology, which is a sought-after treatment in laser clinics in Singapore, for patients who want to eliminate pigmentations such as melasma, freckles, sun spots, age spots and others.

Limelight PhotoFacial can also be combined with Laser Genesis, a safe laser treatment that treats the second layer of the skin to reduce facial redness and to soften fine lines.

Cutera-LimeLight

While Limelight PhotoFacial draws out these dark spots from the deeper layers of the skin to the surface so they can scab and fall off after 3-5 days, you get the added benefit from Laser Genesis as it shrinks your pore size, softens lines and evens out your skin texture – all on top of clearing up your age spots.

Limelight Photofacial and Laser Genesis are both non-invasive procedures that provides skin rejuvenation and stimulates production of collagen, giving you a brighter, healthy looking skin.

Be Confident and Enjoy the New Year with Your Loved Ones

Once you have done all your needed preparations, don’t forget to flaunt your confidence! And remember to relax and enjoy the good food and festivities with your loved ones especially those you haven’t seen for a while. But above all, don’t forget to keep a positive outlook this Chinese New Year!

A Clear Outlook for 2016: Effective Skin Rejuvenation Treatments for a Beautiful You

People can’t judge a book by its cover, but they sure can judge your internal health by the dull look of your skin. Is this the face you want to present to the world?

Probably not. Dull and ashen skin might suggest that you’re tired, stressed, older than your actual age, and worst, ill. In a world where we are increasingly conscious of impressions, where radiant appearance might give us a head start in career or personal life, we want to put our best face forward.

Like most changes for the better, dull complexion brought on by aging skin can be brightened by changes to your diet, skin care products and regimen, and the expertise of a skin care specialist

Lifestyle Changes

You’ve heard it time and again, but it bears repeating because it’s the simplest and least expensive way to maintain skin health: stay hydrated, eat healthy and do proper exercise. If you can’t let go of caffeine or alcohol yet, that’s fine. Just drink plenty more water to help cancel out the damage that caffeine and alcohol can do to your skin.

Diet and fitness

If you still love carbs and sweets, you need to slowly wean yourself off of them and start piling on more color on your plate from healthy sources rich in vitamins A, C and E. Switch to low-fat dairy products, whole grains, and essential fatty acids such as salmon, canola oil, walnuts, flaxseed because these help cell membranes to hold more moisture inside skin cells.

Try having an active lifestyle by running or biking during the weekends. Otherwise, try walking more by taking the stairs instead of using the lift.

Lack of sleep leaves you looking old and haggard, so get plenty of rest. While asleep, your body gets busy repairing damaged skin cells. Exercise, too, contributes to overall skin health. You sweat more, cleansing your pores of dirt that clog them up and contribute to rough and uneven skin texture.

Exfoliating and Moisturizing

Unclogging your pores of dirt through cleansers is sometimes not enough, especially if you are getting older. You need to update to an anti aging skin care treatment that involves exfoliation and moisturizing.

Stratum corneum, the outermost layer of the epidermis, is a layer of dead skin cells that protect the healthy, living cells underneath.As you age, the rate at which these dead skin cells fall off vary, leaving you with age spots and uneven complexion. Exfoliation helps scrub off these dead cells to prevent their build-up and pave the way for healthier skin to surface.

Exfoliation is essential so your skin absorbs moisture better. Moisturizers replenish water that the middle layer of your skin, the dermis, passes to the outer layer where it evaporates. Without restoring moisture to the dermis, your skin will start to dry out.

Skin Rejuvenation Treatments

aesthetic laser clinic For a truly dewy glow, a visit to an aesthetic laser clinic is in order. One of the most popular treatments in laser clinics in Singapore that has been approved by the US FDA is the Cutis 3D Non-Surgical Face Lift which includes the Titan, Laser Genesis and Trilipo. This combination of three powerful collagen-building treatments also erases dark spots, smoothens out wrinkles, and gives you that truly rejuvenated look.

Titan paves the way for other treatments to follow. A skin care specialist in medical clinic in Singapore uses an infra-red device to heat up the deeper layers of the skin. This action triggers the growth of fibroblasts that in turn produces collagen.Sagging skin along the jowls, neck, and eyelids improve with repeated treatments. To seal in the heat generated by Titan, it is followed by Laser Genesis.

Zap Away Dull Skin without Downtime

Laser Genesis targets the second layer of the skin and is effective at smoothing out uneven and rough texture. If you want pores, fine lines and acne scars treated without downtime, Laser Genesis is highly recommended.

Medical aesthetic clinic Singapore patients get Trilipo if they want to gently contour their face while enhancing their skin’s collagen and elastin stores. Elastin is particularly important because it is what gives the skin elasticity.

Specifically usedto target sun damage, brown spots and freckles on your face, neck and décolleté that contribute to that dull look, LimeLight Facial uses intense pulsed light (IPL) to draw out brown spots to the surface where they scab and fall off. Because LimeLight is programmable, aesthetic clinics in Singapore use it to treat a variety of problems that affect the top layer of the skin.

Make your 2016 more beautiful than ever! See our skin care specialist to find out which treatments work for you.

How to Firm Sagging Skin without Surgery

Aging is inevitable. And as you age, you’ll begin to notice some signs starting with sagging and wrinkling skin.

Elastin and collagen are the main protein found in the connective tissues responsible for the skin’s elasticity. Once your elastin and collagen levels drop it will result to sagging skin.

Portrait of against grey background

Good thing there are several ways to help improve your skin’s elasticity without going under the knife. Among these are effective lifestyle changes, products and aesthetic procedures that are highly sought after.

So if you are wondering how to avoid sagging skin without surgery here are some helpful tips to consider that your skin care specialist will certainly approve.

Tips to Avoid Sagging Skin

    • Eat Healthy – Aging may be unstoppable but you can surely delay its effects through healthy eating. The most practical and important tip to enhance the elasticity of your skin, and to delay the occurrence of sagging is to eat fruits and vegetables. Make sure to choose foods rich in vitamin C, which can effectively eradicate free radicals from your body. Choose fruits and veggies that are naturally rich in protein such as legumes and beans. Protein rich veggies can replace dead skin cells, perfect for natural skin rejuvenation.

  • Avoid Sun Damage – The ultraviolet rays of the sun is totally harmful once exposed for too long. Unknown to some, the rays can certainly destroy the elastic fibers on your skin which leads to wrinkles. In addition, age spots on your skin can also be due to over exposure to sunlight.
  • Sufficient Water Intake – Your skin needs to be hydrated if you want to have a tighter looking skin. You need to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day.
  • Try Non-Invasive Skin Enhancement Procedure – Let’s admit it, some people prefer to take the easiest way to enhance their skin. There are several safe non-invasive skin enhancement procedures available in a certified aesthetic clinics in Singapore. You may opt for the  3D Non-Surgical Face Lift, a combination of 3 collagen-building treatments – Laser Genesis, Titan and TriLipo – to lift and tighten sagging skin resulting in a youthful look without any downtime. These sagging skin treatments are US FDA-approved for safety and effectiveness.
  • Use An Effective Skin Moisturizer – Another way to avoid sagging skin is using a good moisturizer everyday as well as every night. A good moisturizer seals moisture into the outer layer of your skin preventing it from drying. It also maintains your skin’s elasticity, tighten it, and prevent it from sagging. 
  • Avoid a Negative Lifestyle – Your lifestyle also plays a big factor on your skin’s elasticity. To ensure your skin won’t mature fast and safe, try to avoid unhealthy habits like smoking, drinking and not having enough sleep.

Improving the condition of your skin can be difficult, in some cases you need to observe a healthy and active lifestyle to enhance and achieve a younger looking skin and also a healthy body. However, some people find it difficult to practice a healthy and active lifestyle due to lack of time due to busy working hours. 

This is where cosmetic products and aesthetic procedures come handy. Besides non-invasive aesthetic procedures, there are also minimal-invasive options available like botox and fillers that can improve not only sagging skin but also reduce wrinkles and add volume giving you a refreshed and youthful appearance.

For safe aesthetic procedures, it is important to do a careful research about the medical aesthetic clinics in Singapore before booking an appointment.

From Classic to Cosmetic: 7 Christmas Gift Ideas for Men

Men are no longer as embarrassed today as they were in the past when it comes to admitting that looking good is high on their wish list, especially when looking dapper puts them at an advantage at work or at play. With this in mind, the following gift suggestions are a solid place to start, and in fact have become quite popular over the years in aesthetic clinics in Singapore and around the world.

“Brotox”

Brotox Singapore

There is a lot to smile about Botox, a popular wrinkle treatment in Singapore and around the world, especially when given to your man at this time of the year when the need to look relaxed and youthful has come to be expected of everyone. Administered in as short as 10 minutes with results as immediate, Botox is often the go-to remedy for fine lines treatment as it relaxes the muscles responsible for contraction so wrinkles are smoothened out. ‘Tis the season to be jolly, and “angry 11” or furrowed brow will look out of place during the holidays. Even better, Botox results lasts for several months, so your man has something to smile about well after the New Year.

Dermal Fillers

For deeper wrinkles and creases below the upper third of the face, dermal fillers are a more suitable treatment. The lower two-thirds of the face is more active than the upper thirds, so this is where movement takes its toll overtime. Nasolabial folds or smile lines can be filled in by Juvederm while Restylane can be used for under eyes treatment to smooth out the tear trough or the sensitive area of the lower eyelid. Cheek fillerssuch as Perlane are best use to plump up sunken cheeks while Sculptra has been proven effective as treatment for “marionette lines” or the lines framing the mouth.

Medical Facials

Medical-grade facials

Give your guy the complete package with medical-grade facials to combat dull skin, uneven skin tone and rough texture. Medical-grade facials infuse the skin with vitamins and minerals for that rejuvenated look that usually fades under the stress of working overtime to make it to the annual deadline.Laser clinics in Singaporealso offer a variety of skin resurfacing programs that use safe and effective pulsed light to iron out fine lines, shrink pores, tighten the skin, and brighten up dull skin tone.

Luxury Barber Grooming Kit

skin care specialist Of course, the results from a skin care specialist differ from DIY attempts, but sometimes men just don’t have the time to undergo the entire ritual. A DIY grooming kit that calls to mind his trip to the barber can save him precious time these holidays. This kit typically contains styling products, preshave lotion, shaving cream, razors, and various skin creams in various smells so he’ll start his year looking good and smelling fresh.

“Man Can”

Pampering need not always be done in an aesthetic laser clinic. “Man cans” containing manly smelling soap, bay rum oils, shave gels, hand butters, and body mitts for exfoliation, can be the perfect gift to let your man unwind after a tough day at work.

Silk neck ties

Neck ties are not exactly novel gift items, but if you go with the silk variety, you’ll give your guy a stylish go-to wardrobe staple he’ll find indispensable for those corporate year-end conferences.

Cufflinks

More than just securing button shirt cuffs, cufflinks have become sophisticated statements of taste. If the special men in your life are the rugged type, choose cufflinks made from specialty materials, such as ripped-off seats of a baseball stadium, mounted on sterling silver.

4 Tips for Healthy Eating During the Holidays

Christmas is usually that time of the year when diets and exercise fly off the window. The festive mood easily overpowers our inhibitions, and there’s no other time of the year when we deserve to celebrate, to go easy on ourselves and to gift ourselves with something we have always wanted. As Christmas celebrations revolve around family and food (which are usually the rich, high-calorie variety), saying “no” to the merry-go-round of parties and reunions is just too tough to resist.

aesthetic clinics in Singapore

Of course, there are always remedies for holiday weight gain that you couldn’t shed with exercise. CoolSculpting has been a safe and effective treatment against stubborn fat that just won’t budge even with the strictest of diets and exercise.In laser clinics in Singapore, this non-surgical fat reduction treatment uses controlled temperature to freeze fat cells so they are naturally eliminated by the body.

Afterwards, Slim-Excess Contour Crème can be massaged into cellulite-prone areas to firm up loose skin and even out areas of uneven skin tone. Containing marine origin disaccharide, botanical extracts and natural caffeine formulated by Dr. Sylvia Ramirez, scientific director of a medical clinic in Singapore,Slim-Excess Contour Crèmestimulates lipolysis (breakdown of lipids), helps eliminate adipocyte (cells that store energy as fat) residues, and reduces cell size.

So instead of resisting, you can actually give in, if you know where to dig your fork (without guilt, knowing that there is a painless way out of holiday weight gain in aesthetic clinics in Singapore). Sometimes, it’s all just a matter of smart preparation so you don’t get overwhelmed and stuff yourself before you realize you are full. In that spirit, here are clever tips on how to enjoy the lavish spread of special-occasion food while still fitting in your pants when the New Year rolls around.

Don’t go hungry before going to parties

You’ll likely to scarf down food when you run on an empty tank. “Saving up” your calories and skipping meals ahead of a big holiday feast can only lead to overeating and poor food choices. If you have helped yourself to a soup of rich broth, you are less likely to dig in right away without working the room first, and putting only food on your plate that you have longed to eat.

Sit beside a slow eater

This way, you can pay attention to what you eat and really savor the flavors of the holiday. If you want a particularly rich treat – say Crème Brûlée – instead of resisting the urge, give in to the temptation and indulge your sweet tooth in controlled portions. Sitting beside a slow eater will also help pace your tempo when it comes to putting food in your mouth.

Load up on unsweetened liquid

No other time of the year is more appropriate to celebrate with a bubbly. Since a few glasses of alcohol can rack up your drink quota – and calories – fast, try stretching that quota a bit by loading up on unsweetened beverages beforehand. That means water, unsweetened tea, a glass of lemon juice, or a bowl of broth-based soup.

Use smaller dishes and serving utensils

Size does matter. To fend off holiday weight gain, try to eat from smaller plates using smaller utensils. A teaspoon does not look a lot so even if you have helped yourself to five teaspoons of high-calorie dessert, it’s far better than having eaten five tablespoons of thesame thing. Serve your main course using a salad plate instead of the party-sized 12-inch plate or trough-like bowl. Similarly, pour drinks into tall slim glasses instead of the fat wide kind. Studies have shown that you are likely to drink 30% more if you are drinking from squatter vessels, and eat57% more if you are using bigger utensils.

iStock_000021672634_medium

Holiday gift-giving has become an increasing trend at many aesthetic laser clinic, if numbers are any indication. Anecdotal statistics from a number of skin care specialist in the United States note that Botox gifts increase an average of 25%, while other fillers increase by around 20% during the holidays.

1. Giving the “Gift of Pampering”

Doctors in aesthetic clinics in Singapore say that gifting beauty treatments and procedures should be approached with sensitivity, as the act of giving cosmetic enhancements – no matter how noble the intention – might be construed by the recipient that they are not loved for what they are.

In cases where the recipient has not expressed desire for any cosmetic enhancement, gift certificates for non-invasive procedures would be more appropriate. In Singapore, for example, Cutis Medical Laser Clinics offers “Gift of Health and Beauty” certificates that can be redeemed for medical-grade facials among other things which are considered “safe” gifts, as they are safe skin-related pampering – rather than corrective – procedures. 

Besides from the skin pampering, medical-grade facials provide extra benefit by revitalizing the skin leaving it fresh with a healthy glow! Plus, it comes with a relaxing massage to soothe tired muscles in the neck and face. She’ll surely thank you afterwards!

2. The Gift of Youthful Beauty

When it comes to treatments or procedures that require insertion of sutures, or anything invasive, it is important that the recipient has expressed a prior desire for such treatment, and has decided on their own without the influence of the giver. In general, cosmetic enhancements should not be given as surprise gifts because of their potential to offend the recipient.

But if your intended recipients are complaining about how tired she looks because of hooded eyelids can benefit from a combination of Botox injections and dermal fillers. Botox relaxes the muscles that pull the eyelids closed, while fillers like Restylane orJuvederm can be injected under the brows to create a broader ledge for the upper eyelid to hang from, making the eyes look more awake and youthful. 

Similarly, if your mother have expressed desire to revisit her youth, a “gift of lift” courtesy of Silhouette Soft may just inspire them to relive their younger years once more. A thread lift procedure, Silhouette Soft uses sutures to provide lift to sagging areas and stimulate collagen production. Even better, Silhouette Soft has none of the downtime and risks that are typically associated with surgery.

3. Gift of Slim-fit Body

But if your intended recipients have expressed concerns on double chins, “batwings,” and stubborn love handles, gifting them with treatments that specifically target their areas of concern will likely be appreciated. In this case, a fat-freezing procedure such as Coolsculpting in Singapore will likely be welcomed.

4. Gift of Silky, Smooth Legs

For women, having a silky, smooth and flawless legs are very important. It adds up to their confidence especially if they want to wear their bikinis, pretty skirts and shorts.

For your loved ones who complain about unsightly, painful leg veins (as the incidence of varicose veins is higher among women), you may want to sign them up for laser vein removal therapy. In laser clinics in Singapore, pulses of light energy are delivered to problem areas so blood within the vein coagulates. Eventually, the destroyed blood vessel gets reabsorbed by the body, and blood flow is redirected to veins located deeper below the skin’s surface.

Laser hair removal will also be much appreciated by recipients with unwanted hair, especially if the errant hair is in visible areas like the upper lip, a harmless problem but a real annoyance for women who have them.

5. Gifts Especially for Her

Lastly, for women who have verbalized deep concern about vaginal laxity interfering with their sex lives, Christmas is the best time of the year for husbands to show that they really care. There’s no need to go through the expensive and risky vaginoplasty procedure! 

Medical clinic in Singapore use patented radiofrequency technology that has been proven effective against vaginal laxity. Viveve is a non-surgical vaginal treatment that triggers collagen formation and tightens the tissues around the vaginal opening, restoring a woman’s sensation and sexual satisfaction during intercourse. Because vaginal laxity also affects husbands, vaginal tightening without surgery benefits both spouses and may even help rekindle that romantic flame.

Sometimes, it’s the intangible gifts that have lasting effects. This Christmas, make the special people in your life feel more loved and cared for with a gift of beauty and health.

All I Want for Christmas is Instant Beauty: Quick Fixes for the Holidays

The Christmas season is the busiest time of the year not only for shopping malls but also for skin care specialists as people are looking for quick beauty fixes that will prepare them before the holidays!

There are also parties and gatherings all around, and people want to look and feel good when meeting relatives and friends they haven’t seen in a long time. If you are like most shoppers who attend to gift-giving at the last minute, getting a quick beauty fix is easy with lunchtime treatments that deliver long-lasting, effective and youthful results.

skin care specialistBotox

The easiest and fastest way to banish those forehead lines and “angry 11” is by using Botox, which temporarily relaxes muscles so your wrinkles (caused by muscle contraction) are not as obvious. Long proven as safe and effective, Botox can be done in 10 minutes. With Botox, wrinkles are corrected in an instant, and the treatment lasts long after New Year’s Day and well past Valentine’s (3-6 months). In medical clinic in Singapore, Botox is injected into the muscles that are used for chewing along the angles of the jaw to slim the face.

Dermal Fillers

Some wrinkles go much deeper and need to be filled. This is where injectable dermal fillers are most useful, especially around tired-looking eyes, which you will likely get after hours of end-of-the-year overtime. For under eyes treatment, Juvederm works best. Droopy eyelids respond well to a combination of Botox and Restylane. Sunken cheeks may look great in a Halloween costume, but in keeping with the chubby cheeks of Santa Claus, you may want to use Perlane, Sculptra and Radiesse as cheek fillers.  Depending on the amount of filler required, the procedure in laser clinics in Singapore can be done in as short as 30 minutes to an hour. Like Botox, there is no recovery time required, and results are instantaneous. The effects last for several months up to two years.

Thread Lift

Jowliness looks good on Santa but it won’t look good on you, no matter your age. Another treatment option to gently lift the face and loose jaws is the use of an absorbable thread lift. Silhouette Soft uses US FDA-approved polylactic acid sutures that are inserted along the jaw lines to lift up sagging jaws and redefine the volume of your cheek. Aside from lifting and contouring sagging face, Silhouette Soft is also used to smooth out turkey neck and lift droopy eyebrows. The sutures are eventually absorbed by the body to trigger collagen production and further lift up problem areas. The procedure is a lunchtime treatment that takes about 30 minutes to complete with no downtime involved. The results can be seen immediately, lasting up to 18 months.

Medical-Grade Facials

When you’re overworked, your lack of beauty sleep shows as dull and uneven toned and textured skin. Brightening or clarifying facials infused with Vitamin C work wonders on these skin problems, while deep hydrating facials revive tired and dry skin. Aesthetic clinic Singapore procedures typically take 45-60 minutes to complete, and the extra time invested is well worth it. You’ll emerge looking renewed and refreshed, and start your year with a beautiful, positive glow.
