For women worrying about the effects of skin ageing, Dr Karen Soh, medical director of Prive Clinic, tells you about a multi-tasking aesthetics treatment that helps heal, calm and repair skin, so it looks younger and smoother.
I’m hitting the big 4-0 soon and I want to do something about the acne scars and dark marks from my youth. How do I repair my battered skin?
Your skin is drier now, leading to more visible lines. Oestrogen is also starting to dip, which affects collagen and elastin levels, so you’ll see sagging, especially at the neck and chest. Plus, pigmentation from cumulative sun damage begins to show on your face.
Rejuran Healer is an injectable treatment that’s said to repair damaged skin cells, promote cell growth, stimulate collagen formulation and protect skin. It’s made of polynucleotides (PN), derived from salmon DNA, and a doctor delivers it into the inner skin layer via micro-injections all over the face.
The ultra-fine needles used make the procedure less painful, and there’s less bruising, compared to more invasive treatments. A series of three sessions over three months is recommended.
At Prive, our popular Skin Revival Program combines Rejuran Healer with a skin-resurfacing laser to treat both the surface and inner skin layers for firmer and more dewy-looking skin that lasts for months.
You should note that Rejuran Healer needs a doctor’s specialised skills, which includes slanting the micro-needle at an angle, and spacing out the injections at intervals, so you should consult an experienced practitioner for optimal results.
This anti-ageing treatment helps heal and repair skin, so it looks brighter, more dewy and smoother.
I want to treat my mum to an aesthetics treatment. What’s one we’d both benefit from, to get flawless, smooth skin? I’m in my 30s and Mum is 60.
Rejuran Healer works well for all ages, and greatly benefits those with damaged skin related to the sun, ageing, acne and acne scars. You can do the treatment as early as in your mid-20s, to keep your skin in optimal shape longer. Those in their 30s can expect to see improved skin tone and texture, and healthier-looking skin.
As this is a skin-repairing treatment, those with oily skin, acne scars, blemishes and enlarged pores are likely to see a clear difference after the first three to four sessions.
For patients in their 50s and above, where collagen levels and skin elasticity have dropped compared to in their 30s, and who have dark spots and pigmentation, and more fine lines and wrinkles, Rejuran Healer can help heal and improve the skin.
For optimal results, we recommend a combination of Rejuran Healer and energy-based treatments, such as Thermage or Ultherapy, for improved skin density and elasticity, recovered protective layers of skin, balanced oil and moisture levels, reduced pigmentation, tightened pores, and more plumped and dewy-looking skin.
