Smooth, glowing skin is ubiquitously considered aesthetically pleasing regardless of gender or ethnicity. Before the rise of non-surgical medical treatments for skin lifting, the only way to restore a youthful appearance was to undergo a surgical facelift.
Although surgical facelift is still an option to turn back the hands of time, well-informed, savvy people are opting for non-surgical methods because they are becoming generally widely accepted as a viable alternative for traditional invasive surgical procedures.
Risks and side effects are a part of any surgical procedure. However, when you opt for non-surgical treatments such as HIFU skin lifting, thread lift, dermal fillers, or botox, the risks and side effects associated with surgical procedures become almost non-existent.
We find out from Dr. Siew Tuck Wah, Medical Director of Radium Medical Aesthetics some of the latest, most advanced non-surgical treatments to retain your youthful look for as long as possible.
Rejuran Healer: Salmon DNA for Anti-Aging
WHAT IS IT Rejuran Healer is an advanced skin healing treatment that is different from most other skin rejuvenating treatments. It is made up of polynucleotides (PN). Polynucleotides are basically nucleotides bonded together. If nucleotides appear somewhat familiar to you, that’s because they are the building blocks of DNA.
HOW DOES IT WORK Extracted from salmon, the secret behind this potent, powerful vial is its ability to heal wounds rapidly and provide remarkable anti-inflammatory treatment after injecting Rejuran Healer into the skin. By stimulating the youth-reviving components of the skin, Rejuran Healer triggers and awakens aged cells that are ‘sleeping’.
BEST FOR Men and women who are looking for an anti-aging treatment that biologically increase the metabolic activity of the cells instead of finding a temporary ‘fix’ by injecting botulinum toxin or dermal fillers to revitalize your skin.
Dual Yellow Laser: Immediately Brightens and Improves Skin Tone
WHAT IS IT Dual Yellow Laser is an FDA-approved treatment for vascular and pigmented lesions. It leverages on a copper bromide technology that offers multi-wavelength capability to effectively treat a wide range of skin issues such as pigmentation, lesions, and acne.
This gentle laser is also able to reduce appearance of dark eye circles by breaking down the pigment deposits under the eyes that cause the under eyes to look darker than the surrounding skin.
HOW DOES IT WORK Unlike other skin resurfacing laser treatment, Dual Yellow Laser does not break the skin surface by creating micro-channels on the skin. Dual Yellow Laser is capable of reaching the deep dermis and targeting the pigments without causing any damage to the surrounding skin. It is an extremely versatile laser of its multi-wavelength capabilities. Using yellow and green lights, Dual Yellow Laser can brighten the skin, remove skin growths, treat acne, and lighten skin pigmentation.
BEST FOR Men and women who are seeking to rejuvenate and brighten the skin without experiencing any downtime. Dual Yellow Laser is a remarkably effective laser treatment for pigmentation and dark spots on the face. It also greatly benefits people who suffer from stubborn acne and recurring melasma.
Radiesse: Collagen Stimulating Dermal Filler for A Younger-Looking Appearance
WHAT IS IT Radiesse dermal filler is a special type of collagen-stimulating dermal filler approved by the FDA for the purpose of hand augmentation. Other than making your hands look smoother and less wrinkly, it achieves two beneficial outcomes when injected into the skin: immediately adds volume to deficient areas and contour facial features and stimulating the body to kick start collagen production to delay the hands of time.
HOW DOES IT WORK Most dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid which encourages moisture retention on the face for plump, hydrated skin. Radiesse is made of Calcium Hydroxyapatite (CaHA) microspheres suspended in a carrier made of sodium carboxymethylcellulose (CMC).
When injected into the skin, the CMC immediately adds volume and hydrates the skin. Over the next few months, CaHA microspheres are metabolized by the body, resulting in newly formed collagen to further correct skin aging issues and enhance the anti-aging result.
BEST FOR People who are experiencing moderately aging skin who are keen to explore anti-aging treatment but are not yet suitable for a cosmetic surgery. Undergoing Radiesse dermal filler treatment prolongs the need for a cosmetic surgical procedure.
