Dr. Terence Tan from Halley Medical Aesthetics (Halley) shares insights on recent trends in non-invasive rejuvenation procedures to improve the Asian face.
Researchers are always looking at ways to produce better machines. Doctors, on the other hand, are asking how we can better use subtle improvements in technology to improve patient outcomes and enable our patients to go back to work the next day? Take Ultherapy for example. It is a non-invasive procedure that utilises focused ultrasound for skin tightening. With the introduction of a new transducer by the manufacturer, they are now able to tighten skin over three layers for better results with no downtime.
Another thing we often think about is how to adopt technology designed for Western faces to rejuvenate Asian faces. Dermal fillers had previously appealed to a limited number of people. They wanted to reduce wrinkles and fine lines of the face. Asians, however, generally have less wrinkles. They also experience more changes related to sagging skin and are more concerned with their face shape. Modern fillers have extended longevity with few side effects. These improvements, coupled with the adaptation in its usage for Asian face, have increased the popularity of fillers for the nose, chin, and mid-face.
At Halley, we are not content with just meeting the expectations of the majority. That is why we started using Xeomin®, a Botulinum Neuromodulator recently approved for use in Singapore. Xeomin® is exciting as it allows patients who have developed resistance to proteins found within previous Botulinum Neuromodulator products to use the product, thus achieving better outcomes.
Everyone is not built the same way. At Halley, our focus is to continually adapt innovations on modern medical technology to better serve our patients.
