While certain skincare products do a decent job of tackling some of our skin concerns, there are also cases where they fall short. This is especially true for visible and prominent concerns or skin care problems that are surface-deep. Aesthetic treatments fare better, particularly with visible signs of aging and achieving a more luminous and youthful complexion.  

Dos and Don’ts Before Your Aesthetic Treatment

If your skincare regimen is doing little to nothing to address your concerns, in-clinic aesthetic treatments are worth considering. To help you get started, here are some dos and don’ts before your aesthetic treatment. 

Dos before your aesthetic treatment

Decide on your goals for the treatment

Are you looking to treat wrinkles to look younger, target pigmentation for a more radiant complexion, or address volume loss to plump the skin? Maybe you want to enhance your facial contours for a more youthful appearance or tackle stubborn fat to achieve your desired figure?

Ask yourself what you want to achieve and think it through. And if you find yourself wanting to address multiple concerns at once, decide on what concerns you the most or the main reason you are considering going to an aesthetic clinic in Singapore. You may realize that some of your skin concerns are not visible or prominent.

Do your homework

After deciding on your goals, do some research on the aesthetic treatments that can tackle your concerns. If you, for instance, are thinking of getting lip fillers, find out which type or brand of fillers are ideal for the lips. It is best to educate yourself on:

  • What certain treatments can do
  • How they are performed
  • How long they last
  • What results to expect
  • The potential side effects
  • The most common terminologies

Our website provides information on various aesthetic treatments, such as botulinum toxin, dermal fillers, lasers and light-based treatments, non-invasive fat reduction, and more. You can also check out our blog for some skincare and anti-aging recommendations and discussions of treatments and technologies. 

Do find and choose the right clinic

Another important part of doing your homework is finding the right clinic. The ideal clinic has qualified and experienced aesthetic doctors or healthcare practitioners who perform/administer the treatments. Below are a few other things to consider when choosing an aesthetic clinic

  • Doctor-supervised clinic with board-certified doctors
  • Reviews and recommendations on social media and Google
  • Patient-focused clinic or a patient-centered approach 
  • Open/transparent communication from the practitioners

Do ask questions and spend time during consultation

After choosing an aesthetic clinic in Singapore, book a consultation with an aesthetic doctor. An in-depth or comprehensive consultation will give you an opportunity to learn important information and clarify any concerns you have. Some topics you may want to ask or discuss during the consultation include:

  • Expected outcomes, limitations, and risks involved
  • Information about the procedure (duration, process, downtime, aftercare instructions)
  • Potential complications or side effects
  • Pricing and treatment plan
  • Alternative procedures or treatments that suit your concern

Do follow your doctor’s pre-treatment advice

When you decide on aesthetic treatments, your aesthetic doctor will give advice or pre-treatment guidelines. These may include medications and food supplements to take, as well as habits to avoid before your treatment. Make sure to follow their advice and maintain healthy habits.

Dont’s before your aesthetic treatment

Don’t get treatments because of trends or pressure

Your motivation for undergoing any aesthetic treatment should serve your best interest. It is not something you should do because everyone is doing it or someone is forcing you to do it. 

The same is also true for buying aesthetic tools and devices online. It is always better to go to a reputable clinic with experienced doctors and authentic tools, devices, and products that are proven to deliver results.

Don’t rush into any aesthetic treatment

Evaluate your goals and motivations before deciding on any aesthetic treatment. It is perfectly okay to put it off if you have doubts or are not sure if you really want to. Your clinic or practitioner shouldn’t force or pressure you to commit to a procedure after your consultation. Always take time to review your options before finally making a decision.

Don’t choose a clinic or treatment on price alone

Cosmetic injectables and other aesthetic treatments are not cheap. This is why it is never advisable to choose a clinic or treatment that offers bargain or cheap rates. If someone offers discount treatments or performs the treatment in a non-clinic setting, it is likely that they are not trained or certified to perform the procedure.
