Providing volume to correct the visible signs of aging on the face. Shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds are lifted. Lost collagen is also replaced to give you a natural-looking, long lasting appearance.
Collagen and HA are key structural components that keep skin youthful looking and smooth. As you age, your body’s collagen production decreases, and you may begin to see wrinkles, sagging skin and dark eye circles. This non-surgical treatment can instantly replace that lost collagen and HA, giving a face lift with minimal downtime.
We work with different filler materials to help select the best one for you. These may include Sculptra and various Hyaluronic Acid (HA) fillers such as Juvéderm, Restylane and others.
At SKN MediAesthetics, we like to treat the face as a whole to restore the youthful contours lost during aging.
This treatment can address several areas at the same time:
1. Deep folds between the nose and the mouth (nasolabial folds) also called “smile lines”
2. Marionette lines (lines framing your mouth)
3. Dark eye circles
4. Sunken eyes
5. Eye bags
6. Sagging cheeks
7. Flat nose bridge
8. Chin wrinkles
At SKN MediAesthetics, we only use materials with excellent safety profiles. These include Sculptra and other Hyaluronic Acid fillers such as Juvéderm, Restylane and others.
Dr. Alvin is one of the few doctors in Singapore trained and certified by Sculptra and other injectable filler material companies to perform this treatment. He is also a certified trainer in non-surgical face lifts and trains other doctors in this technique. An initial consultation with Dr. Alvin is essential to discuss the most suitable way the treatment can be tailored to you.
Our goal is to provide you with a natural looking result. During the treatment you are in full control over how much lifting you want, as a mirror will be provided for you to check frequently on the amount of filler applied during the treatment.
There is minimal pain from the injections, but all patients are offered a topical numbing cream to be applied to the treatment area 30 minutes before the treatment.
One treatment is all you need. A follow-up at 2-4 weeks is offered and more filler material may be added then as necessary.
The majority of patients have no downtime at all. Some patients may experience minimal redness or swelling that will improve over 1-3 days.
You are allowed to wear make-up immediately after, and you will be able to resume normal activities immediately after the session.
Results are visible and long lasting; up to 2 years or more.
