From rejuvenating facials for wrinkles and pigmentation to non-invasive Ultherapy to lift the skin, check out these salons and clinics for advanced anti-ageing aesthetic treatments that promise to take a few years (or more!) off your face and body.
Body treatments and facials for wrinkles, pigmentation and more!
Tucked away in a quiet corner along Holland Avenue, this luxury facial salon incorporates traditional Chinese herbs into its range of skincare products and treatments catered to common skin concerns. The patented formulas aim to boost skin rejuvenation, increase elasticity and restore youthfulness, while soothing even the most sensitive skin. Here you’ll find facials for ageing concerns like wrinkles, pigmentation, fine lines and dull skin.
For a comprehensive anti-ageing facial for concerns like wrinkles and pigmentation, try the Holistic Deluxe Facial Therapy, which is recommended for those above the age of 30. It begins with deep cleansing to remove makeup and impurities, followed by face steaming and blackhead suctioning to prepare the skin for the manual extraction process. Based on your skin type and condition, the beautician will proceed with a signature treatment, choosing from options like Calming Skin Spa (to soothe sensitivity), Aqua Brilliance (for hydration) and Ferment (for anti-ageing). Then, micro-needling technology is used to help the collagen penetrate into the dermis skin layer, and the session rounds up with a premium collagen mask.
Immediately after, you can expect baby smooth skin with a luminous finish. With consistent treatments, skin elasticity improves and pigmentation spots are lightened, revealing a more even-toned complexion with a radiant glow.
To mark National Day this month, you can enjoy the treatment at half price ($479 after discount)!
The Face Place
Overlooking the sights surrounding the Singapore River, The Face Place’s private loft offers an intimate and tranquil space to truly unwind and shake off the week’s tension. Each treatment bed is partitioned, so you can expect a private pampering session every time. A must-try is The Facial Massage, a 70-minute facial that combines the salon’s special Bojin and Guasha massage techniques with microcurrent technology.
The treatment starts with a double cleanse, an exfoliating scrub and face steaming to open up the pores. Using a combination of traditional and modern methods, trained hands target the acupoints and meridians of the face. Tried-and-tested Bojin and Guasha massaging methods help to improve circulation, reduce puffiness and relieve tension. Then, a nourishing vitamin C mask is applied to nourish the skin, while a shoulder and neck massage relieves any residual tension. Finally, a microcurrent machine delivers a low-voltage electrical current that engages and tones muscles to enhance and lift facial contours.
The use of microcurrents in pain-relief treatments dates back to the 1970s. The non-invasive and painless therapy has since been incorporated into beauty treatments for anti-ageing benefits. The machine works by discharging a low-voltage electrical current similar to the low-intensity, natural electrical currents found in our body cells. These microcurrents promote cellular activity and collagen production in the skin, which in turn tightens and lifts the complexion. Over time, you can look forward to smoother and firmer skin, reduced wrinkles, and improvements to skin conditions such as acne.
Angeline Yong Dermatology
At this clinic, anti-ageing procedures run the gamut from energy-based devices to a variety of injectables, as Dr Angeline Yong believes it’s important to have a wide repertoire of tools to be able to manage each patient holistically. As a leading dermatologist and dermatological surgeon who’s also an officially appointed APAC Key Opinion Leader for Cynosure and the Singapore trainer for Ultherapy, Dr Angeline offers a combination bespoke approach to anti-ageing treatments for more natural results.
An example is the utilisation of either the TempSure Envi or the Exilis Elite, both of which are radiofrequency devices that help to tighten the skin and reduce wrinkles. When paired with Ultherapy (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound), the treatment can target different levels of the skin for a more complete rejuvenating and lifting treatment. Before the result of Ultherapy kicks in after three months, you can first benefit from the effects of TempSure Envi or Exilis Elite. No surgery or needles are needed, and there’s no downtime either. Not only does this non-invasive procedure firm up sagging skin in the face and body, it can also be used to reduce fat, as well as target the intimate areas to treat urinary leakage from childbirth and ageing.
In addition, the clinic is one of the first to bring in the new Deka RedTouch, which is the first laser system to have an elective absorption by collagen. This exciting new addition is a non-ablative skin photo-rejuvenation laser that can reduce facial wrinkles and improve skin laxity effectively with minimal downtime.
Chez Moi De Beaute
If you’re concerned about common ageing signs like lines, wrinkles, sagging jowls and loose skin, the Sharplight IR Skin Tightening treatment might help. A fast and painless way to tighten loose collagen fibres in the skin, this technology uses infrared energy to induce the photocoagulation of soft tissues in the reticular dermis.
Infrared light pulses are delivered over cleansed skin with the Sharplight IR Cool Tip applicator. The cold applicator desensitises the skin, allowing thermal energy to be delivered deep into the dermis without irritating the skin surface. The increased temperature in the skin results in an immediate contraction of collagen fibres, which instantly firms up the visage. On top of that, the thermal stimulation also induces the formation of new collagen, so you can look forward to younger, smoother and firmer skin over time.
The anti-ageing facial ends with a regenerating biocellulose mask to seal in nutrients and provide additional healing, lifting and brightening effects. This quick and efficient treatment is the perfect lunchtime skin fix for time-strapped individuals, since there’s no downtime required. A series of six treatments, once every two to four weeks, is recommended. Full results may take up to three months after the final session to be fully visible.

Dermstetiq Clinic offers a non-invasive and personalised approach to beauty treatments. Its Signature Total Facial Lifting Programme combines Profhilo with Ultherapy, which is the only FDA-cleared ultrasound treatment that goes deep into the skin to lift the eyebrow, neck and under chin, as well as décolletage.
The treatment delivers micro-focused ultrasound energy to the same foundational layer typically addressed by cosmetic surgeons, without disrupting the surface of the skin. Each treatment is tailored to the individual to create effective collagen regeneration and natural-looking lifting effects. For maximised effects, the programme pairs Ultherapy with Profhilo, which is the first bio-remodelling “injectable skincare” that uses 100 percent pure hyaluronic acid. With just five injection points per side of the face, Profhilo diffuses through the different skin layers, resulting in a naturally refreshed look. Both treatments can be done as lunchtime procedures as there’s minimal pain and downtime.
This medical spa is all about slowing down the signs of ageing and achieving natural-looking results. A signature treatment is the Age Defy Booster, a non-invasive, needlefree treatment designed to hydrate, firm and restore skin health. It’s done in total comfort and relaxation with no downtime, which makes it a great fix for busy working folks!
Using a patented, needle-free device that incorporates electroporation (which increases the permeability of the cell membrane), the age-defying treatment is an FDA-approved alternative to injections. It works by utilising currents to open the microchannels of the skin and drive in a cocktail of PDRN (salmon DNA), hyaluronic acid, vitamins and antioxidants to the deeper skin layers. The potent blend of hyaluronic and PDRN works to strengthen and hydrate the skin while reducing fine lines and open pores, whereas the antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents help to lighten spots and brighten the skin. Microcurrent therapy increases overall blood circulation, reduces facial tension, and promotes skin healing.
The Age Defy Booster is recommended as a standalone treatment or as an add-on to accelerate the results of other anti-ageing treatments.

W Skin & Laser Clinic
Ultherapy is one of the most effective non-invasive procedures for lifting and toning the skin on the face and neck. Offered at W Skin & Laser Clinic, the anti-ageing treatment can penetrate deeply and precisely into the foundational layers of facial tissue, thus lifting and tightening areas like the brows, jawline, jowls and neck.
Collagen is a natural protein that gives the skin its youthfulness by keeping it firm and toned. As we age, the collagen in our skin loses its strength and ability to stand up to the effects of gravity. Ultherapy jumpstarts a repair process that strengthens your existing collagen and produces fresh collagen. The non-invasive cosmetic procedure uses ultrasound to specifically target the layer of facial tissue that doctors normally address in surgery. The use of ultrasound also enables the doctor to see the layers of the skin being treated in real-time, which allows the energy to be delivered precisely to where it will be most productive.
Those in their 40s to 50s who are noticing early signs of facial sagging will benefit the most from Ultherapy. While it isn’t a replacement for a surgical facelift, Ultherapy is ideal for anyone who wants to achieve a natural-looking lift without going under the knife. Additionally, there’s no downtime needed, so you can return to work the very next day. Most people only need one treatment, followed by maintenance sessions once every two to three years.
