Besides your smile, your face is the first thing many people notice. As your skin ages and is exposed to ultraviolet rays and environmental pollutants, it can develop lines and wrinkles. As busy individuals, with a tight schedule, you may start to neglect yourself. Botox is no longer the preserve of the rich and famous. Plus there are plenty of other options, from dermal fillers to ultherapy and thermage, to give your face a more youthful, radiant complexion.

Smile Like The Stars

Want to have teeth as white as the celebrities? Try teeth whitening to help lighten and brighten teeth, which could be stained from ageing, foods and even smoking. You can opt for an in-clinic laser treatment, where teeth can be lightened by up to several shades in an hour, or ask your dentist for a DIY kit.

Smoothing Lines

Those bothered by fine lines have the option of injectables like Xeomin, a purified botulinum neurotoxin that’s free of complexing proteins. By contracting muscle fibres, it helps reduce the appearance of ageing frown lines. At Nu.U Aesthetics & Wellness, Xeomin is also used to help slim down the jawline.

Skin Boosters

Fillers is the latest darling of A-listers in looking natural yet untouched by the hands of time. Natural hyaluronic acid is infused into the superficial layer of skin via micro-injections. At Healthsprings Laser And Aesthetic Clinic, Dew Drop Fillers, using Restylane Vital, help restore skin elasticity.

Zap Those Spots

With sun exposure and age, dark spots may start to form. DRx Medispa’s painless Cryotherapy treatment infuses skin with active ingredients formulated to lighten stubborn pigmentation. Regular sessions can also help boost skin tone and texture.

Battle That Muffin Top

If you’re working out but need a bit of extra help to look fab in that party dress, you may want to try this. At Astique: The Aesthetic Clinic, the non-invasive CoolSculpting by Zeltiq basically freezes fat cells underneath skin and lets the body natually rid itself of the “frozen” dead fat cells.

Say Goodbye To Panda Eyes

Have dark eye bags or puffy eyes? Try Kowayo Signature, Tired Eye Correction which targets the tear trough area just beneath the eyes where shadows or dark-eye circles often give the appearance of tiredness.

Quickie Facial

Need a quick skin pick-me-up before a night out? The IDS Hydro Therapeutics Treatment, at IDS Clinic, is a four-step treatment that will have you looking as if you just got back from a vacay.

Brighter-Looking Skin

Worried about uneven skin tone? Then look for facials and treatments that include exfoliation and/or RF therapy. At Estetica Beauty Studio, the GeneO+ super facial integrates cutting edge technology to exfoliate, heal and hydrate so skin looks radiant and glowing.

Fuzz- Free Skin

Not comfortable with the pain of waxing? Taming unwanted hair is a cinch with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). Through a flash lamp, light energy is pulsed and absorbed into the dark pigment of the hair to ultimately destroy the hair root. Hair can be removed from the face, underarms, bikini area and legs – virtually any area of the body!
