Have you ever met someone and noticed, right off the bat, that they’ve gone under the knife – had what you might call a ‘dodgy’ aesthetic treatment? Unless you’re aiming to channel Joan Rivers or Jocelyn Wildenstein, no one wants it to appear obvious that they’ve had any work done to their face or body. If you’re thinking of trying an aesthetic treatment, whether it’s fillers or breast enhancement surgery, the goal is always the same – to achieve natural-looking results. But what’s the best way to go about this?
Choose the right doctor
One obvious but important factor for a successful procedure is finding the right doctor. On top of stellar technical skills, an aesthetics doctor should also have an artistic sense to help you get the look you desire. Dr Ivan Puah of Amaris B Clinic uses this approach when it comes to body contouring and facial rejuvenation. The clinic’s emphasis on up-to-date technology, together with Dr Puah’s many years of experience in tailoring treatments to individual needs, are factors to consider for anyone seeking a natural-looking end result.
Since 2004, Amaris B Clinic has been providing personalised treatments tailored to different skin and body types, and for a range of desired outcomes. It employs clinically-proven, science-based technology in its modern medical aesthetics treatments for both men and women.
Here, we run our eye over five of the signature treatments on offer.
#1 VASER Lipo
If you’re looking for a less-invasive form of liposuction, try VASER Lipo. How does it work? Using ultrasonic sound wave energy, the device liquefies and breaks down targeted fat cells before eliminating them from the body. On top of quicker recovery time, you can also expect smoother and tighter skin as collagen production is stimulated.
An alternative to high-risk breast implant surgeries, this minimally-invasive treatment uses micro-lipo to remove unwanted fat tissues from problem areas like flabby arms abdomen and saddlebags. The fat is injected into specific areas in the breast that need extra volume. The results are firmer and fuller breasts as the fat cells integrate into the breast tissue with time.
A bespoke treatment designed by Dr. Ivan, the 4D Fluid Facelift uses only FDA-approved, biodegradable dermal filler to add volume to the face and give it an anti-ageing boost. When combined with Botulium toxin, the treatment smooths out fine facial lines, defines features and fills in shallow contours.
This non-invasive facelift bypasses the surface of the skin to deliver ultrasound energy. This encourages collagen and elastin production, resulting in a firmer and younger-looking complexion over time. It helps to tackle ageing concerns like loose skin, jowls, droopy eyelids and wrinkles on the neck.
Zap away pigmentation, sun spots and acne scars with this FDA-approved picosecond laser treatment. The amount of downtime is less than it is with traditional laser procedures, plus the side effects are minimal. Pair this with the SkinSOS Botanical Facial Series to speed up the repair process! You may experience slight redness for up to four days after the treatment, especially if you have sensitive skin.
