Looking for a solution to large pores, sagging skin or wrinkles? Whatever your beauty woes – and most of us have at least one – there’s bound to be a solution out there to help fix it. These top-notch, non-invasive anti-ageing treatments from some of our favourite beauty spots are worth checking it out.
The Belle Clinic
For wrinkles and lines above the upper lip, sagging in the cheeks and in sensitive areas around the eyes, neck and décolleté, The Belle Clinic has a solution: the Collagen Refirm ($360). This hour-long facial uses FDA approved medical technology to build collagen, improve skin texture, restore skin elasticity and smooth out wrinkles in a safe and painless way. Channelling Optimised Radio-frequency Energy targets specific layers of the skin to precisely heat the underlying network of collagen and elastin fibres. During the treatment, you will experience dual sensations of hot and cold on the surface of your skin. Expect a slight tingling during the session. Some mild flushing might occur, but this can easily be concealed with makeup and usually subsides in a few hours. The treatment concludes with a complimentary Pure C Firming Masque, a brightening mask that uses professional-grade ingredients like amino acids and vitamin C to protect cells from free-radical damage, while tightening and detoxifying the skin.
Having shifted to a brand new space just a couple of months, The Belle Clinic now boasts a bigger area with luxe interiors, as well as more service options offered by its partner, Sports Medicine Lab.
Psst… If you have acne scars or pigmentation, try the Skin Perfecting Glycolic Hydration Facial ($280), which combines a medical-grade peel with extraction and a moisturising facial massage. The gentle glycolic acid peel exfoliates upper layers of dead and damaged skin to reveal new, healthy skin, while the second half of the routine plumps and hydrates the face.
The Aesthetic Studio
For an all-round anti-ageing boost, try the Forever Young Broadband Light (BBL) ($450), one of the only devices that has been shown to affect the expression of genes associated with ageing and cellular longevity. Done every month for the first three to five sessions, then once every two to three months for maintenance, this facial stimulates the skin’s epidermis to promote cellular renewal, as well as collagen and elastin production. It effectively minimises and reverses signs of aging, including minor textural issues like wrinkles, freckles, sunspots, melasma and small visible vessels. Other issues like unwanted hair and active acne can also be managed with this procedure, making it a one-stop solution for full face rejuvenation. Look forward to clearer, smoother and younger looking skin overtime.
And if you’re strapped for time, this lunchtime treatment takes only 25 minutes: 10 minutes for the numbing cream to set in, followed by 15 minutes of procedure time. Your skin may look slightly flushed and pink right after, but that generally dissipates after a few hours.
Psst… To spruce things up, we recommend adding a 20-minute Omnilux light therapy treatment, which complements the skin’s natural renewal process for the ultimate rejuvenation and transformation.
EstheClinic’s Three Days to Instant Youth programme ($990) is a five-step treatment that stimulates collagen and elastin production on multiple levels of the dermis. This intensive and comprehensive facial tackles signs of ageing – from smoothing lines, lifting and firming to brightening and evening out skin tone – without the need for surgery or downtime.
The benefits are twice as effective as a one-off facelift, and can continue for up to four months after the programme is completed. Firstly, thermo-controlled RF safely heats the deeper layers of the skin, inducing collagen stimulation for skin tightening. Then, Le DermaBooster, a microneedling device, stimulates subdermal layers of the skin to encourage further collagen production and elastin. Next up is the application of the ElaDerm CosmeLED Le Sérum, which fights against free radicals while enhancing skin elasticity and radiance. Step four is an LED photomodulation treatment to increase skin elasticity by stimulating cellular activity and producing new collagen. Finally, the treatment rounds up with the application of the ElaDerm CosmeLED La Crème, a powerful anti-ageing cream formulated to firm, lift and restructure skin, while providing intense hydration and antioxidant protection. You’ll get to take home a set of skincare for use, so as to maximise the effectiveness of the facial.
Three locations island-wide: Central, East and West
Battling blotchy spots, pigmentation, wrinkles or lines? The Elight Facial Collagen Boost (from $59) is a three-in-one facial that combats ageing woes, treats skin conditions like acne, and rejuvenates the complexion. A combination of radio frequency, light waves and an epidermiscooling technology, the award-winning treatment is a must-try at beauty salon Wellaholic.
How does it work? Radiofrequency waves heat up the skin tissue and stimulate collagen production, firming up loose skin and reducing the appearance of fine lines. Red light therapy – as opposed to other light wavelength technology – penetrates deeper into the skin to target existing acne, post-acne scars and sun-damage spots. Finally, the Elight probe is water-cooled to lower temperatures, making the procedure more comfortable.
Expect slight post-treatment redness that quickly disappears. It is suggested that you wait three or four days before your next appointment.
Go for the monthly packages, where you can enjoy as many sessions as you like. Choose from one (from $179), three (from $477), six (from $894) and 12 (from $1,548) months. For maximal results, Wellaholic recommends twice-weekly treatments.
These cosy salons offer a wide range of organic facials customised for sensitive skin. For the ultimate indulgence, sign yourself up for the Signature Ultra Firming Treatment ($340, 120 minutes), a popular anti-ageing facial that uses a hybrid of antioxidant and firming products from professional skincare brands OSEA, Odacite and Pai.
It begins with a double cleanse, followed by exfoliation, a skin peel or ampoule, then extraction. After that you’ll be treated to an uplifting face massage, two customised masks, LED light immersion and radiofrequency eye treatments.
The results after two hours? A fresh looking complexion and more defined facial contours; all thanks to the salon’s special massage techniques that encourage collagen production, increase skin elasticity and smoothen fine lines.
If you liked the effects of your facial, be sure to check out the various products on display, which are mainly organic, natural and non-comedogenic. What’s more, you can snare a massive 30 percent discount on the facials when you sign up for a package!
A radiant, sun-kissed look is one way to look younger and healthier. To skip the sun damage, opt for Airbrush Elite, a spray tan service that uses Infinity Sun, a Beverly Hills brand known for its anti-ageing and hydrating formulas.
It takes only 10 to 15 minutes to achieve a gorgeous, streak free tan ($65); head to either of Airbrush Elite’s centrally-located studios (River Valley or Cavenagh Road). You can look forward to an immediate dewy glow – thanks to a special tanning solution infused with youth-boosting ingredients like aloe vera and collagen.
To prolong your glow, choose from a selected range of Infinity Sun’s best-sellers from Airbrush Elite’s website! A hot favourite is the Infinity Sun Glow on the Go ($60), an all-natural tanning aerosol that’s formulated without harmful propellants or alcohol and enriched with essential oils, antioxidants and botanicals for softer, suppler and more luminous skin.

Beaute Hub International
No matter how well you eat or how often you exercise, getting rid of saggy skin and pockets of stubborn fat can still be a struggle. Even if you’re considering traditional liposuction or other invasive forms of cosmetic surgery, it’s important to know that such treatments can involve serious risks.
Beaute Hub offers the LPG Alliance Face and Body Slimming Treatment, a non-invasive therapy that promises to reduce fat while improving skin quality. The award-winning spa is the first and only LPG Alliance Lab in Singapore offering this innovative treatment that claims to be painless and without side effects.
The body treatment uses the Alliance Skin Identity sensor to stimulate the skin surface and “reactivate” dormant cells. The sensor works on specific areas, according to your unique skin structure, thereby intensifying the effect. After the third session, you should notice smoother and firmer skin, fewer localised and resistant fat deposits, as well as a smaller waistline.
The face treatment, on the other hand, promises to increase the production of collagen, elastin and moisture-boosting hyaluronic acid in the skin. After just one session, reports show less visible fine lines and wrinkles, firmer facial contours, and a clearer complexion.
