As the holiday season begins and a new year beckons, it is time to bring cheer to the people around you and especially to yourself. Consider a makeover as a well-deserved gift to your good self, a reward for surviving this challenging year and for a renewed confident look to face the challenges ahead. While artful make-up and loose clothes may indeed help cover up visible signs of ageing and pockets of unsightly fats, why not consider safe and non-invasive aesthetic treatments that may actually erase them to give you a more youthful natural look minus the make-up?
Today, we feature a range of highly sought-after non-invasive body and face treatments available at DermClear. Administered by the skilful hands by our Medical Director, Dr Chin Yee Choong, these procedures help address your aesthetic concerns safely and effectively. Facial pigmentation, frown lines, wrinkles, hollows, sagging skin, open pores, dull-looking skin and stubborn fat pockets are but some aesthetic concerns that are effectively treated by Dr Chin routinely with minimal downtime and discomfort. Discover as well as DermClear’s range of premier clinic product lines formulated with the best ingredients currently available. These will enhance your complexion and extend the benefits of your treatments in a subtle but visible way.
Body Aesthetic Treatments to reclaim a slim and toned body:
If stubborn folds of fat bother you despite a sensible diet and a regular exercise regimen, consider “melting” them away with Cryolipolysis. The process involves using a vacuum-like applicator to suction targeted areas of fat which then deep-freezes the fat cells. This causes the fat cells to actually disappear permanently and not just shrink temporarily, giving you fat reduction that lasts a long time. One session may result in up to 30% fat reduction and repeat treatments give additional results. Cryolipolysis has been proven to be extremely safe and effective in numerous scientific studies and avoids the potential side effects of unnecessary trauma and perforations associated with surgical liposuction.
Ultherapy® is an FDA-approved procedure that is clinically proven to lift, tighten, and tone skin naturally using your own collagen. The areas we treat include the face, neck, chin, eyebrow, abdomen, and knees, all without surgery. Using focused ultrasound energy, Ultherapy® tightens and lifts loose skin and stimulates new growth of collagen in the deeper layers of the skin. Ultrasound, of course, has been used safely throughout the medical field for more than 50 years, and Ultherapy has been established as safe and effective in numerous clinical studies and in over a million treatments worldwide.
3. Radiofrequency (RF)
Ageing is a very visible process. Loose skin turns into wrinkles and creases like crow’s feet and smile lines. Increasing your body’s natural collagen is the answer to combating ageing skin. RF is a non-invasive method of skin tightening that heats tissues beneath the skin’s surface to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, vital to creating healthy, elastic, firm skin. While initial collagen contraction gives an immediate lifting effect, the treated skin continues producing more collagen up to 90 days after treatment, so you’ll continue to see results develop over time. As RF is “colour-blind”, it can be used to safely treat all skin colour types, even in dark and tanned skin.
4. Lipo Cavitation
Holiday miracles do happen! Who needs liposuction when you’ve got Lipo Cavitation (ultrasonic cavitation). Lipo cavitation is an impressive breakthrough in nonsurgical fat treatment technology. Ultrasonic waves penetrate deep into the skin to heat up fat cells, causing tiny air bubbles or cavities to form between them. These air bubbles build-up surrounding pressure causing the fat cells to literally burst and liquefy. The released contents of the fats cells are then safely removed by your body’s lymphatic drainage system leaving no residual trace or side-effects
Face Aesthetic Treatments to reclaim a calm and fresh look:
1. Skin Boosters ( Rejuran, Profhilo)
Skin Boosters help boost your holiday spirits and achieve that lustrous festive glow by providing radiant and youthful skin. Skin boosters involve injections of medical-grade Hyaluronic Acid and/or cellular growth stimulators into the upper skin layer to help plump up the skin, boost cellular regeneration, brighten, repair, and improve skin hydration from within. Administered skilfully by our medical director Dr Chin, causing minimal discomfort and bruising, DermClear offers two highly-effective and in-demand products: Rejuran and Profhilo. Requiring only 30 minutes, one can easily notice softer, dewy, and more supple skin immediately – instant gratification that is guilt-free and downtime-free.
The expressive eyebrows that were once charming when you were youthful gradually evolve to unflattering “worry lines” as you grow wiser. Proven in safety and effectiveness since 2002, Botox remains the undisputed king in the treatment of undesirable worry lines. Placed by adept hands in strategic locations, medical-grade Botox safely and selectively weakens the muscles of unwanted facial expressions that give you the undesirable look and allows the unblocked muscles to act and give you a relaxed look reminiscent of younger and carefree days. DermClear uses the finest injection needle available for the procedure, ensuring that the procedure is near painless with hardly any bruising after treatment. This transformational wrinkle erasing procedure takes a mere 15 minutes to perform. So skip lunch, save on the calories, have Botox done during lunchtime and appear worry-free to the world within a matter of days.
3. Hydro Glow Facial
Hydra Glow Facial is an evolution of facial treatments incorporating gentle exfoliation followed immediately by infusion of nutrients to the skin. The initial step of exfoliation is performed using a high-tech vortex spiral tip which generates a fluid vortex over the skin that gently dislodges impurities and dead skin cells. The treatment tip gets impurities out of skin pores and delivers booster doses of antioxidants and hydrating skin solutions to the face. Your treatment will finish with a nutrient delivery peel-off mask to further lock in the moisture. This revolutionary facial treatment targets various skin problems including blackheads, whiteheads, age spots, acne, sun damage, uneven skin tone, enlarged pores, and fine skin-ageing lines. Once you experience the benefits of Hydro Glow Facials, you’ll never look at facials the same way again.
4. Chemical Peels
What if we told you that there is a way you can give your skin a do-over! Chemical Peels help you do just that. When administered safely and expertly, chemical peels create a safe amount of exfoliation that removes the top layer of skin and allows new cells to regenerate more easily. The vitamins and acids in peels work to shrink pores, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, stimulate collagen and elastin growth, and improve acne and hyperpigmentation. With immediate results of gaining a skin that looks alive and refreshed, its effects will leave you feeling thrilled and anew.
5. intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
Firmly established over the years, refinement in light energy delivery and filters allow Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to remain relevant as a foundational aesthetic treatment. IPL effectively targets multi-problem areas such as pigmentation, fine lines, acne marks, rough skin, enlarged pores, excessive hairs and more. Loved and trusted through the years, regular IPL treatments give you a clearer and gorgeous complexion that glows and attracts praises from friends and strangers alike.
6. Laser Rejuvenation
If the acne scars on your face are causing you to lose your holiday cheer, you can rejoice knowing that your days of achieving a smoother more even skin are finally here. Fractional CO2 Laser offers a remarkably safe and effective approach to improve acne scars as well as age spots/growths, wrinkles, open pores and uneven skin texture. Fractional CO2 Laser creates microscopic ‘wounds’ within the targeted areas beneath the skin’s outermost layer, which in turn, triggers the body’s own natural production of new collagen and skin cells. It is considered the “gold-standard” of skin resurfacing procedures. This holiday season, step out from the darkness cast by your acne scars and bask in the light of smoother, blemish-less skin.
Premier clinic products to complement and sustain:
It’s common to hear about new trendy skincare ingredients that claim to change your skin for the better. But, if there’s one ingredient that’s worth the hype and deserves to be included in your daily regimen, it’s Peptides. Also known as polypeptides, they are amino acids that act as a building block of proteins needed by your skin to maintain a firmer, younger-looking skin. Collagen makes up nearly 80% of your skin’s structure whose production starts to slow down after the age of 25. It is vital to support, enhance and encourage its production. These anti-ageing ingredients demonstrate remarkable benefits and help revitalise your skin making it firmer and more resilient.
2. Vitamin C
When it comes to the superior and proven anti-ageing ingredients, Vitamin C sits right there at the top. DermClear’s Vitamin C products use only the highly effective L-ascorbic form which can best penetrate the skin and promote collagen production. This, in turn, increases the firmness of the skin. L-ascorbic acid is a rejuvenating vitamin ingredient that also plays a part in the reduction of photo-damage caused by harmful UVB rays. Because L-Ascorbic Acid plays a major role in anti-ageing treatments, skin firmness, overall repair and brightening, it also serves to rejuvenate the skin. Conditions such as ageing skin, hyperpigmentation and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation benefit greatly from DermClear’s Vitamin C skin rejuvenation products.
3. Stem Cells
Most of us have heard of stem cells being used in the capacity of high-tech medical research to treat damaged organs. But, Stem Cells have been a trending ingredient in skincare in recent times. Specialised formulations of DermClear make use of plant stem cells which are rapidly dividing cells that have the ability to differentiate into other cells to repair damage caused by environmental free radicals. As stem cells contain amino acids and peptides, they help fight wrinkles and improve skin turnover and overall appearance. Their ability to promote smoother, balanced and hydrated skin help complement, sustain, and maintain the benefits of your aesthetic treatments.
4. CR Ferulic
To declare that Ferulic Acid is a cult-favourite skincare ingredient would be an understatement. Ferulic acid is a powerful antioxidant that mops up free-radicals that accelerate skin ageing and at the same time boosts the effectiveness of other antioxidants such as vitamins A, C, and E. This high-powered acid helps accelerate skin regeneration and decrease the formation of fine lines and wrinkles, brown spots, uneven skin tone, inflammation, and other signs of premature ageing.
