1. Botox. Botox is the most popular treatment for lines and wrinkles in 2016 as it has been proven consistently effective at smoothening textural problems with no downtime. In many aesthetic clinics Singapore, another brand of Botulinum toxin, Dysport, is used. Dysport, just like Botox is highly effective at minimizing the appearance of wrinkles.

2. Cutis Chemical Peels.  Skin specialists prescribe chemical peels for the treatment of acne, enlarged pores, wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, and skin discolorations. At Cutis, the Cutis Vitality Peel is recommended for textural problems as well as acne scars treatment Singapore.

For those who are looking for pigmentation treatment Singapore, the Cutis Crystal Peel might be the treatment for you.  And for adults with late onset acne, consider the Cutis Acne Peel because it works wonders at unclogging the pores, significantly reducing and preventing acne.

3. Dermal Fillers. Those who have aging and mature skin can largely benefit from having dermal fillers. Dermal fillers are prescribed in aesthetic clinics for patients who want to minimize the appearance of eye bags, nasolabial folds or laugh lines and even large pores.

The use of fillers for face, eyes, and forehead not only smoothens the skin, it restores some of the lost facial volume as well.  The effect of dermal fillers can be likened to having a face lift without surgery.

4. Laser Hair Removal. One of the most popular cosmetic procedures in 2016, laser hair removal is a safe and effective procedure for permanently reducing unwanted hair. In many laser clinics, the Cutera CoolGlide system is prescribed for those who are looking to have hair removal Singapore.

Unlike other methods of permanent hair removal, Cutera CoolGlide is effective even for tanned skin, making it the preferred hair removal treatment of choice for patients with dark skin.

5. Microdermabrasion. Another procedure commonly prescribed for the treatment of wrinkles, lines, uneven skin texture, and enlarged pores is microdermabrasion.  This nonsurgical skin treatment rejuvenates the skin by gently removing the topmost layer of the skin.

In addition to softening wrinkles and fine lines, microdermabrasion also stimulates collagen and elastin production in the skin, restoring volume and giving it a more youthful appearance. In Cutis, microdermabrasion is part of Cutis Medical-grade Skin Rejuvenation which includes anti-aging and clarifying facial treatments.
