The results of these one-time skin treatments can last a year
SINGAPORE (Mar 25): For the modern woman, juggling tasks and activities is a full-time commitment, and time is often a luxury she cannot afford. If you are strapped for time, here is a list of anti-aging treatments you can commit to at least once a year, because the least you deserve from working so hard is to look great while doing it.

Thermage, which uses radiofrequency waves, is a premium non-invasive skin rejuvenation and tightening procedure that penetrates deep into the skin to stimulate your body’s natural renewal of collagen. It results in overall skin tightening and contouring, and is FDA-approved for the treatment of facial wrinkles and eyelids. Thermage is painless in its administration, but ruthless in its removal of wrinkles, smoothening of the skin and defining of jowls and jawlines. The whole process can take a few minutes to an hour, depending on the treatment area, but the results can last at least a year or more — depending on age and skin condition.
Low: Ultherapy works deep below the skin surface to achieve the lasting effects of facial firming, tightening and lifting
Another non-surgical skin-tightening, firming and lifting treatment is Ultherapy, hailed as a breakthrough procedure that uses medical ultrasound for non-surgical cosmetic improvement of the skin. Dr Low Chai Ling, medical director and co-founder of SW1 Clinic, says: “Ultherapy works deep below the skin surface to achieve the lasting effects of facial firming, tightening and lifting. Continued treatment eventually results in a more refreshed look around the eyes, lifting the brow line and reducing droopiness on the eyelids.”
Sagging skin on the cheeks can also be tightened and lifted with Ultherapy, instantaneously resulting in a more defined jawline, overall improvement in skin texture and evenness of colour.
As with the Thermage treatment, Ultherapy requires just one brief session for results that can sustain you for a solid year or longer.
For another incision- and stitch-free method, try the Silhouette InstaLift, which helps remove sagging skin, fi ne lines and wrinkles.
Dr Kenneth Lee, medical director and co-founder of SW1 Clinic, explains: “The Silhouette Instalift uses 100% bio-absorbable threads strategically positioned under the skin. These threads tighten the skin and contain stimulants that encourage collagen production, culminating in a smoother, firmer appearance of the treated areas.”
As one session lasts for only 30 minutes, the Silhouette Instalift is highly popular for its immediate post-treatment lifting effect and longevity of results.
The Instalift is also ideal for the neck. Sagging skin around it is tightened, giving you a significantly younger appearance.
The effects of this non-invasive treatment can last up to 18 months, depending on the individual’s ageing process and the body’s response to the threads.
