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?
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?
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 eyes over five signature treatments on offer.
If you’re looking for a less-invasive form of liposuction, try Vaser Liposuction. How does it work? The procedure uses ultrasound wave energy to break down stubborn fat tissues into liquefied form. Subsequently, the doctor will remove the melted fat via suction and shape the body. On top of quicker recovery time and a shapelier body, you can expect tighter skin as collagen production is stimulated.
An alternative to high-risk breast implant surgeries is fat grafting to the breast is a 2-in-1 procedure. First, it removes fat from problematic areas such as the abdomen and saddlebags. Then, the extracted fat is separated, cleansed and re-injected into the breasts to add volume and improve the breast shape. The results are firmer and fuller breasts as the fat cells integrate into the breast tissue with time.
A non-surgical facial enhancement and rejuvenation treatment designed by Dr Ivan Puah to restore the natural and curved contours of the face. 4D Fluid facelift can lift targeted facial features such as the cheeks, enhance the chin, smooth out facial lines, improve skin quality and replace volume loss on the face due to ageing.This treatment may be combined with Anti-wrinkle Injection (BoNTA), Chemical Peel and Pico Fractional Laser for an even smoother complexion and younger-looking appearance.
The treatment uses micro-focused high-intensity ultrasound to penetrate your skin, heating the targeted tissue. It triggers the body's regenerative response and jumpstarts a natural process known as neocollagenesis, where the body produces fresh collagen. This gently and gradually lifts the skin and makes it supple again.
Ultherapy® is FDA-cleared to treat saggy cheeks and jowls, address skin laxity, "turkey neck", droopy eyelids, lines, and wrinkles on the décolletage.
It delivers ultra-short laser pulse to targeted problem areas. Although the pulses of energy are highly concentrated, the laser’s effect is gentle on the outer skin layer. Thus, potential discomfort and trauma to the skin are minimised, and the skin heals faster with less downtime.
Its LIOB technology stimulates elastin production for a softer, fuller, and more youthful complexion. Pico Fractional Laser can also minimise the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, reduce pigmented lesions, and improve acne scars (which are notorious for a treat).
