Our very own Dr. Sylvia shared her expertise and delivered three talks on innovative topics about facial aesthetics at the Aesthetic Medicine World Congress (AMWC) Asia & Taiwan Dermatology Aesthetic Conference (TDAC) on the 25th and 26th of May.

AWMC Asia returned to Taipei for the 6th edition with a focus on evidence-based research. Dr. Sylvia was one of the industry experts invited to share her knowledge and provide valuable insights into the use of neurotoxin in treating the masseter muscles, skin rejuvenation using microneedling, and the use of skin boosters in improving skin quality and treatment results. 

Below is a brief rundown of Dr. Sylvia’s talks at the conference.

Starting from Evidence: Masseter Muscle Prominence

Sponsored by Allergan Aesthetics, this talk highlighted the versatility of OnabotulinumtoxinA for treating the masseter muscles. Dr. Sylvia’s presentation explored the benefits of this approach, which not only provides aesthetic enhancements but also relief from functional issues. She explained that OnabotulinumtoxinA can effectively address teeth grinding (bruxism) by: 

  • relaxing overactive masseter muscles
  • reducing the force of clenching and grinding to protect teeth 
  • alleviating pain

She also discussed how OnabotulinumtoxinA injections can:

  • release tension in the masseter muscle
  • be an effective part of treating Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMJ)
  • be utilized to create a more slender and V-shaped lower face by carefully reducing the bulk of the masseter muscles

Enhancing Skin Quality with Microneedling Therapy

Enhancing Skin Quality with Microneedling Therapy

Presented in collaboration with DermapenWorld, this medical affair symposium focused on the potential of microneedling for comprehensive skin revitalization. Dr. Sylvia discussed how collagen induction therapies, particularly with US FDA-cleared Dermapen 4 can stimulate collagen synthesis and refine both skin tone and texture. 

This minimally invasive technique utilizes fine needles to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin, triggering a cascade of natural healing responses. By strategically targeting multiple skin layers, microneedling offers a customizable approach to address a wide range of aesthetic concerns:

  • Epidermal enhancement
  • Dermal remodeling
  • Scar treatment
  • Pigmentation balancing

Dr. Sylvia also highlighted the safety and efficacy of the US FDA-cleared Dermapen device. Its engineering and customizable needle depths help deliver results tailored to each patient’s skin needs.


The VYC-12 Effect: Enhancing Skin Quality and Boosting Treatment Results of
Energy-Based Devices

Also sponsored by Allergan Aesthetics, Dr. Sylvia’s The VYC-12 Effect talk explored and revealed the results of combining VYC-12 (a hyaluronic acid treatment) with energy-based devices to enhance skin quality and treatment outcomes. VYC-12, which is the only US FDA-cleared skin booster, delivers deep hydration for a radiant complexion and stimulates collagen production for improved skin quality.

The VYC-12 Effect

Lasers and IPL are superficial treatments for improving the top layers of skin for a brighter, smoother appearance. Fillers and MFU-V, meanwhile, are deeper treatments that address the underlying structure of the face, defining contours and tightening the skin. VYC-12 is the missing link in having rejuvenated skin that looks smoother, firmer, and more radiant.
