Treatment for Wrinkles and Lines

Have you had your Botox jab recently?

This picture is not reflective of any results of treatments at our clinic. It is not a picture of our patients.

Injection for Dynamic Wrinkle Lines

Having forehead lines, frown lines or crow’s feet? Do you hate your bunny lines or lipstick lines? Even pebbly chins can be solved.*

Forehead lines are caused by the action of the frontalis muscle, frown lines by the proteus and corrugator muscles and crow’s feet by the orbcularis oculi muscle. These dynamic wrinkles are caused by frequent skin creasing from the contraction and relaxation of active muscles.

In other words, wrinkles are caused by the movement of facial muscles over a period of time. The facial expression on our face causes pleating, creasing and folding of our facial skin. After years of similar facial movement in the same areas, the commonly moved facial line become wrinkles. Think of your facial skin as a piece of cloth, if the cloth is ironed over and over again along the same line, a permanent line or pleat will form. This is a wrinkle.

Wrinkles are usually found in between the eyebrows (also known as frown lines), forehead lines, lines along the cheeks (known as laugh lines), and near the corner of the eye (known as crow’s feet).

Wrinkles can be done away (at least for a time) easily*, with just a few injections into these active muscles. It acts by relaxing these facial muscles which are overworking to produce repeated skin creasing; once they are relaxed, they do not cause wrinkling of the skin anymore until the effect of btx wears off.* Each treatment can last up to 4-6 months before a top up injection is required.*

Improvement from wrinkles can be seen within approximately 5 days.*

It is a Myth that wrinkles, if left alone will go away. It will not, and will only get worse as the facial muscles which are creasing and folding that area of the facial skin will still be creasing and folding the skin, making the wrinkles worse. The Reality is that for wrinkles to go away, that facial muscle which is causing the wrinkle must stop folding and/or creasing that part of the facial skin. This treatment will temporarily stop the muscle from repeatedly creasing the facial skin.*

Just one session of wrinkle reduction treatment will last for approximately 4-6 months – meaning that the muscles won’t be creasing or folding your facial skin for the next 4-6 months.* If a series of wrinkle reduction treatment is done continuously every 4-6 months, the effect of each session may last longer, even beyond 6 months in a handful of people.*

As discussed above, think of your facial skin as a piece of cloth, if the cloth is ironed over and over again along the same line, a permanent line or pleat will form. This is a wrinkle. So if you stop ironing the piece of cloth along the same line, the pleat will get undone. The longer you stop ironing, the fainter the pleat on the cloth will be. The same principle applies for wrinkles.

Bunny lines are the creases around the nose bridge and bleeding lipstick lines abut the vermillion border of the lips, caused by the action of orbicularis ori muscle. Pebbly chins, also associated with mental creasing, are caused by the mentalis muscle on the chin. These muscles can also be relaxed by injection to reduce wrinkling.*

*Note: As this is a medical procedure, results & outcomes are not guaranteed and may vary from person to person.

Possible side effects

These injections are skin deep, so side effects are usually of a superficial nature and highly transient. Needle marks and wheals only last for a few hours. Once they go away, there may not even be any sign of a recent treatment done. Occasionally, a bruise may occur over an injection site that disappears in a few days. You should abstain from lying down or massaging the areas of injections for 4 hours after a treatment session.

Facial Fillers & Facial Laser Treatments for Static Wrinkle Lines

This treatment mainly helps dynamic lines, i.e. wrinkling of the skin with facial muscle movement during smiling and frowning. It may soften permanent lines by preventing further creasing*, but has little or no effect in removing these permanently formed wrinkle lines.

For permanent lines that form as a result of years of wrinkling from facial muscle movement, removal can be achieved with facial filler injection, facial laser treatment or both.* A soft facial filler, usually hyaluronic acid, is injected right underneath the lines to plump up the skin and prevent it from creasing further.* Resurfacing facial laser treatments and Thermage can help in remodelling and new collagen production over treated areas, thereby softening and reducing the lines.*

*Note: As this is a medical procedure, results & outcomes are not guaranteed and may vary from person to person.

Possible side effects

Facial filler injections may cause some bruising over injected areas occasionally. Resurfacing treatments may have a downtime of redness and peeling for up to 1 week. Makeup application and sun exposure should be avoided in that period.

Pigmentation Removal

spots

This picture is not reflective of any results of treatments at our clinic. It is not a picture of our patients.

Struggling with pigmentation or brown spots? Tired of always trying to use the concealer, or afraid that your make up can no longer hide the brown spots on your face which is getting more pronounced? Read on, we have the treatment for you.*

What is hyperpigmentation? Why does it happen?

Almost everyone has a few obvious brown spots here and there on their skin. It may be on one’s face, hands, or back. The common name for pigmentation or hyperpigmentation are freckles, age spots, liver spots, brown spots, to name a few. Some of these spots are quite obvious, and can affect how you look.

Hyperpigmentation is caused by an increase of melanin (pigment) in the skin, which is the substance that is responsible for skin colour. Sun exposure is a major culprit for darkening of the skin and increased pigmentation. Therefore, in sunny Singapore, problems of hyperpigmentation are common and come as no surprise. That is why you should always wear your sunscreen when you are outdoors.

In summary, the spot on your skin appears darker (hyper-pigmented), because melanin is abnormally concentrated in that spot of the skin.

It is a Myth that brown spots or freckles cannot be treated because it is genetic. The Reality is that hyperpigmentation is unsightly and can be medically treated.* If treatment is not sought, the brown spot or freckles may get darker, bigger, and more pronounced.

Melasma

Melasma is the medical term for one of the most common conditions of hyperpigmentation. It is characterized by tan or brown patches on the face, especially on the cheeks and forehead and on the right side of the face for people who drive, where sun exposure is greatest. It is the most difficult pigmentation to treat but it is still possible to improve or lighten it.

Freckles / Sun spots

Freckles are small brown spots found in lighter skinned people. Age spots (solar lentiges) are brown or gray discolorations that usually appear on sun-exposed areas such as the face, hands, and back.

Whether it’s freckles, melasma or sun spots, we have the solution for you.*

Why choose us for your pigmentation removal?

Dr. Tiffiny Yang & co have many years of clinical experience and have developed the best method to treat stubborn pigmentation on your skin.* Our own formulation of pigmentation removal regime includes:

(1) Our TY specially formulated whitening cream for lightening skin problems;

tiffiny yang skincare

Irritated skin is further calmed by Centella Asiatica extracts. It is a non-greasy formulation suitable for all skin types.

(2) Effective Pigmentation Removal Laser by USA FDA approved laser machine;

Our in-clinic laser treatment for pigmentation include the Q-switched ND:Yag laser treatment and IPL treatment (click here to find out more about our lasers).

If you already have great skin (congratulations!), our treatment also works to help you maintain your good complexion and achieve lighter, fairer skin tones over time.*

How do Lasers work on pigmentation?

Laser energy produces a specific wavelength which is absorbed by the brown spot (pigmentation) with abnormal concentrations of melanin. As the pigmentation absorbs more laser energy, the brown spot will reach a point where it cannot absorb any more light and will “self destruct”, reducing the concentration of melanin in that area. The end result is that the pigmented spot will at least look lighter.*

Acne / Pimples

beautiful asian woman

This picture is not reflective of any results of treatments at our clinic. It is not a picture of our patients.

What is Acne / Pimples? What causes them?

Acne or pimple is an inflammatory condition of the pilosebaceous unit, i.e. the hair and sebum-producing gland, in the skin. These pilosebaceous units are found in great numbers in the face, chest and back of the body. Correspondingly, the common areas where acne occurs are also in these particular areas. Acne / Pimples forms in 4 stages:

(1) Overproduction of sebum (oil) in the pores;

(2) Formation of comedones (i.e blackheads and whiteheads) due to accumulation of sebum in the pores and shedded skin cells;

(3) Infection of nutrient rich sebum collection by bacteria Propionibacterium acnes; and

(4) Inflammation with formation of pus in pustules, nodules and cysts.

Acne / Pimple commonly starts at puberty, in the teenage years, but they can also start past the age of puberty in adulthood. Some suffer from acne way into their forties. The chest and back of the body is another place where acne / pimples can appear.

Acne / Pimple often causes people to feel defeated, depressed, devastated and embarrassed as they feel that their facial skin is un-presentable to the outside world. If you are reading this, you may already tried many over-the-counter products which are found on the shelves of various pharmacy, but nothing works.

In other words, acne / pimples are multifactorial. No single treatment is sufficient to eliminate them from coming back again and again. A combination of treatments such as the necessary prescription medications and laser light treatments we have available at Tiffiny Yang Aesthetics & Surgery are far superior in efficacy than any single treatment alone.

When should Treatment for Acne be sought?

Acne / pimple outbreak is one of the most easily treatable skin conditions. So, see us as soon as possible. It is not ideal to wait, since effective medical treatment is widely available and early treatment prevents the onset of acne scarring that can be difficult to treat.*

Acne / pimple outbreaks, if left alone, may form uneven or pigmented acne scars, therefore acne / pimples should be treated as soon as possible to prevent such scarring.

Please click here to see our treatment options for the removal of acne scars.

What Treatment for Acne do we recommend?

Acne Scars – Removal by Laser or INFINI Microneedling

smooth clear skin

This picture is not reflective of any results of treatments at our clinic. It is not a picture of our patients.

Suffering from acne / pimple scars that are making your complexion pitted and uneven? Feeling self-conscious of your appearance and unable to look at others in the eye because you’re afraid of what they might think of you? Its time to stop feeling defeated, devastated or depressed.

You don’t have to live with it anymore– there are ways to improve your appearance now.*

There are basically 5 types of acne scars:

  1. atrophic acne scars (mostly shallow),
  2. boxcar acne scars and
  3. icepick acne scars (deep and narrow)
  4. rolling acne scars
  5. valley scars
  6. hypertrophic scars

What are some effective treatments for acne scars? Well, besides treating active acne and preventing further outbreaks that will create more acne scars, here are some possible solutions to smoothen out those unfortunate pockmarks on your face, ranging from subcission to laser resurfacing, as well as acne control treatment to keep those zits in check.*

Subcission

This requires manual separation of the skin from the deeper layers of the scars with a needle. The manual needling underneath the acne scars release scar tethering. It causes a little bleeding under the skin that allows the scar to then heal and level out, effecting remodelling of scars.* Bruising is common after this procedure.

Price from SGD 400-600

Laser resurfacing – Fractional CO2

Ablative laser essentially shears off the top layer of the skin and heats it up so that it can re-heal into a smoother texture.* However, there is a higher risk with full ablative laser treatment. A less invasive and safer method: fractional resurfacing laser, which covers only 20% – 50% of the same treated area and therefore also has only 20% of the downtime and complications… and achieves good results too, even from the first session.* Usually around 5 to 10 sessions may be required.

5 sessions for SGD 2000 (SGD 400/session only)

Chemical peels including TCA peel

Essentially, this also aims to exfoliate the acne scars on the surface and/or excite new healing in the deeper layers, depending on the type of chemical peel used, thereby remodelling the acne scars. TCA is a medium depth peel that is particularly suitable to help smoothen acne scars, even resistant ones.*

Price from SGD 250-320

Dermabrasion / microdermabrasion

Similar to chemical peels, except that it employs physical exfoliation. Dermabrasion may have excessive downtime so we recommend microdermabrasion instead, incorporated in our TY Microdermabrasion Facial for SGD 280 per session only.

Punch excision

At the very worst, stubborn acne scars may be removed surgically… but of course, this may lead to another scar and is a method reserved for the most unrepentant scars. We do not routinely recommend this treatment due to the possibility of further scarring after excision. (Currently not available in our clinic.)

Injection Medication

This is only suitable for raised or hypertrophic scars. It is effective in softening and flattening them, so that they are leveled with the skin.* Thereafter, laser treatment can help to improve them further.*

Price from SGD 80

Acne Scar Filler

Filler can be used to fill out depressed acne scars and level them out with the skin.* It is only a temporary treatment and suitable for certain scars only. We use Restylane Vital Light as acne scar filler from SGD 400-680.

It is a myth that filler for acne scars lasts strictly 6 months only and is afterwards entirely resorbed. It is expected to last about 6 months in the body but recent few studies have also shown that it assists in the production of some collagen that gives acne scars more lasting improvement.*

Microneedling

The dermaroller consists of tiny needles that can be applied all over the face to release acne scar tissue and cause rehealing, somewhat like a milder form of subcission. For a more effective microneedling treatment, please read on…

Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling by INFINI (Lutronic)

Infini

This treatment uses Fractional RF Microneedles, using a machine device that effects microneedling and delivers heat by radiofrequency, which can penetrate deeper than laser and improve stubborn resistant acne scarring.* It gives fractionated remodelling to the deep dermis and therefore also helps in skin tightening.* Usually 1-3 sessions are required.

It used to be that Radiofrequency in high energies cannot be delivered to the skin without causing a certain degree of epidermal damage or burn as it passes through the epidermis. However, this new technology INFINI makes use of microneedles to bypass the epidermis and reach the dermis directly so that the passage of energy is transmitted past the epidermal layer of the skin and gives selective heating of the dermis only. The needles that pass through the skin are insulated so that the epidermis layer is protected to minimise risks and side effects.

The result is that the deeper dermis, where the acne scars originate, is directly treated and effective remodelling of the acne scars is achieved.*

Price from SGD 852

Fractional CO2 Laser skin resurfacing

This is a cost effective acne scar treatment commonly known to most as Fraxel. We only use FDA approved, HSA approved eCO2 laser system by Lutronic, which delivers just the right energy to give results with minimum downtime.*

Tiny beams of laser penetrate beneath the acne scars all over the skin so that acne scar tissue contracts and new collagen regenerates, therefore resurfacing the scarred area to restore a smooth complexion. This may be associated with some pain, which is alleviated by our strong topical numbing cream before the procedure.

Downtime is approximately 1 week, with some redness and swelling in the first 2 days. Scabbing follows for the next 3 days, followed by a quick recovery. Results are clearly visible with every treatment after a month or so, and even more with a prescribed course of treatments.* In fact, improvement may be seen up to 6 months post treatment.* Treatments should be spaced at around 4 weeks apart for maximum benefit.*

It is a myth to assume that acne scars cannot be treated. The Reality is that it is never too late to start improving the appearance of your acne scars for greatly improved confidence. Desirable results are usually seen after multiple repeated sessions of treatment.*

Price from SGD 500

Possible Side Effects from Acne Scar Treatments

Sun protection and diligent post treatment skincare is very important to avoid post procedure hyperpigmentation. We adjust intensity of treatments to suit your skin type so as to minimise pigmentary changes that may be associated with aggressive treatment. Prophylactic abx may be recommended to pre-empt any possibility of infection. Downtime is usually from some bruising or redness or swelling, which takes a few days to a week to resolve. Results are visible from a month after treatment and acne scars may continue to improve up to 3 months after last treatment.*

For Stubborn Acne Scars

Do not think that there is only 1 treatment suitable for improving acne scars. With stubborn acne scars that resist standard laser treatment, these may improve with alternative treatments such as INFINI RF microneedling, TCA peels or subcission.* Most of the time, more than one treatment modality is necessary to achieve the best improvement of scars.* The best benefit may be achieved by combining a few of different treatments according to the acne scar types that you have, so keep an open mind when consulting with our doctors for the best regime for improving your acne scars.

For best results, we have combined our most effective acne scar treatments into the Comprehensive Acne Scar Package treatment.

*Note: As this is a medical procedure, results & outcomes are not guaranteed and may vary from person to person.

Post Treatment Care Instructions for You

1. DO NOT wash on the day of treatment. Leave epidermal debris on the face as coverage.

2. After 24 hours, use a gentle cleanser (highly recommended: Tiffiny Yang Skincare Gentle Cleanser) for washing face for the first week. Pat dry lightly. Do not scrub or use harsh & abrasive soaps.

3. Apply cooling masks if swelling or sunburn sensation occurs.

4. Apply thin layer of anti infective cream for first 3 days. If skin is unbearably irritated, use very thin layer of anti infective & anti-inflammatory cream.

5. Use a regenerating moisturizing cream twice a day to assist in speedy healing. Skin heals well in a moist environment. Dryness will results in scab formation.

7. Sunblock (at least SPF 30) can be applied from Day 2 of treatment and is very important in preventing pigmentary changes. Avoid direct sun exposure for the first week.

8. Mineral cosmetics can be used from Day 3 of treatment. Avoid alcohol-containing products (in makeup, toner, etc.) for 2 weeks.

9. DO NOT pick at scabs.

Skin Tightening – Ulthera® (Ultherapy / Ultrasound Skin Tightening)

Ultherapy Love Your Skin II

High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) by Ulthera®

Ultrasound skin tightening, also popularly known as Ultherapy/Ulthera®, is a breakthrough procedure utilising High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) for non-surgical, non-invasive cosmetic improvement of the skin. The HIFU ultrasound energy or Ulthera® penetrates and works deep below the skin surface without harming the outer layer of skin. The end result is dramatic and long-lasting benefits of facial firming, skin tightening and lifting.*

The HIFU ultrasound energy or Ulthera® will give you improvement around the eyes include lifting of the brow line to reduce droopiness on the eyelids, smoothing of crow’s feet, and a more open, refreshed look to the eyes in general.*

Sagging skin on the cheeks can also be tightened and lifted, which in turn can improve folds from the nose to mouth, folds from the mouth to jaw, and drooping corners of the mouth.* Often, a more defined jaw line (resulting in a V-Face shape) and overall improvement in skin texture and evenness of colour are known additional benefits.*

How does Ulthera® work?

Ulthera® is safe for all skin types. Any patient who has experienced some sagging of their skin will benefit from this treatment. It is likely that if your sagging is severe, you may need a repeated treatment for visible results.

Ulthera® works by delivering low levels of focused heat at just the right depth below the skin to achieve a lifting effect, leaving the surface of your skin undisturbed and undamaged. Your body’s response to the HIFU energy is an increased growth of new collagen within the skin. As a result, a gradual tightening occur, ultimately resulting in a natural lift and conditioning of the skin over time.

doublo-s_index_img03

How is the procedure like?

Patients may feel a warm prickly sensation beneath the skin when the ultrasound energy is being delivered into the target tissue. The procedure takes approximately 30 to 60 minutes. You are able to return to your normal activities right away, and you can apply makeup if needed. Your skin may be slightly red immediately after the treatment, but any redness will subside within a few hours.

How many treatments will I need?

Only 1 treatment a year or at most 2 treatments 6 months apart are recommended.*

What areas of the face and neck are treated?

Ulthera® can be done on any part of your face including the forehead, temples, mid and lower face, and jaw line. In some cases, the neck is also treated. The most popular treatment is the full face, neck, and defined jawline treatment.

What kinds of results can I expect?

The regenerative process may be noticed immediately such that some patients may be able to see initial lifting of the skin.* However, the full effect will build gradually over two to three months and some patients will see optimal results only after a few months.*

In clinical trials for ultrasound frequency (HIFU) for non-invasive and non-surgical face lift such as in Ulthera®, patients had a noticeable, significant lift of the brow line.* This resulted in opening up of the eyes and a more youthful appearance overall.* Patients also reported firmer, tighter, better-fitting skin in other areas of the face and neck as well.* Smoother texture and a more even skin colour are also possible side benefits.*

Which is better – Thermage or Ulthera?

We have both treatments because in reality, Thermage® and Ulthera® treats different things. Thermage removes the wrinkles from your skin.* On the other hand, Ulthera® solves the problem of saggy and droopy skin by giving the skin a lifting effect.* Thermage and Ulthera® thus work together, hand in hand to give a holistic 3D Face Lift by removing wrinkles and lifting saggy / droopy skin.*

*Note: As this is a medical procedure, results & outcomes are not guaranteed and may vary from person to person.

Skin Tightening – Thermage CPT

thermage_hp-banners-toneupskin_0

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Medical Grade RadioFrequency Skin Tightening by Thermage

Thermage has FDA approval for:

(a) the treatment of wrinkles around the eyes;

(b) facial wrinkles;

(c) cellulite; and

(d) all body laxity (sagging skin) e.g. abdomen, arms, neck, thighs.

Science behind Thermage

Thermage CPT - how it works

Thermage discharges monopolar radiofrequency energy to the skin. This electrical energy is met by the skin cells. The electrical resistance converts the radiofrequency (RF) energy into heat energy. The heat produces does two things:-

(1) Short Term. The heat breaks down hydrogen bonds in the skin, causing its structure to shorten and thicken. What this means is that a few weeks after the procedure, this molecular structure shorting will lead to visible tightening effect of the skin.

(2) Long Term: New, healthy collagen is produced in the skin due to the heating effect of the radiofrequency (RF) energy, leading to long lasting tightening seen after a few months of the procedure. In addition, the heat also stimulates blood flow, which leads to an increased metabolism (slow removal) of the fatty layer of the skin.

Thermage radiofrequency (RF) energy is monopolar, as opposed to bipolar. The advantage of monopolar radiofrequency is that it penetrates deeper than bipolar radiofrequency, reaching the deepest skin layer for the production of collagen.

It is a myth that the only ways to tighten one’s facial skin is by way of invasive surgery. Radiofrequency (RF) energy treatment which is absolutely non-invasive, can be very effective for a modest face lift.* Thermage has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of facial wrinkles and sagging skin.

Side Effects

The Thermage procedure is non-ablative, meaning the radiofrequency (RF) energy does not damage the top layer of the skin. The radiofrequency (RF) energy penetrates underneath the skin, leaving the skin surface intact. This translates into a much shorter downtime, even none.*

Almost immediately after the treatment, there should be visible tightening and minimal swelling.* Swelling is necessary as its presence indicates that the treatment was successful, and that long lasting tightening results are more likely to be achieved.* In addition, there may also be some transient erythema (redness of the skin) after the procedure.

The swelling and redness should disappear approximately 2-3 days after the treatment. However, this is not visible most of the time and so there is essentially NO downtime.*

After Childbirth or Losing Massive Weight

The tummy is an area of special concern to women after childbirth. Tummy skin after childbirth and weight loss may become lax and loose. Some women also have this problem of loose skin around the tummy after they lose massive amounts of weight. Why should loose skin at your belly stop you from wearing your favorite bikini?

Thermage can tighten up loose skin around your tummy / belly ofand get you one step closer to a firmer, tighter, more toned tummy.*

Jawline & Neck

Jawline sagging, or not being able to see a clearly defined jawline, is a sign of aging. The more the skin around your jawline sags, the older you will look. Thankfully Thermage is also able to tighten up this part of the face and make your jawline look defined.*

In addition to the jawline, Thermage can also tighten the loose skin around your neck, reducing neck lines and giving you a complete fresher and younger look.*

Results

Facial tightening improvement continues for 6 months post Thermage treatment. Depending on the area treated, results can include*:

  • Improved complexion.
  • Tighter, more contoured skin.
  • Eyebrow lift.
  • Correction of hooding of the eyelids.
  • Correction of wrinkles around the eyes.
  • Improve laxity of the jawline and reduce neck lines.
  • Improved nasolabial folds.
  • Improved acne scars.
  • Tightening of skin of the abdomen, arms, thighs, and buttocks.
  • Improved cellulite.

How is it done?

How many sessions are needed?

Only one session of Thermage Treatment is required to see results.* The next Thermage treatment should be done approximately 6 – 12 months after the last treatment as aging and gravity do not stop!

There are some surveys showing that some patients feel that they look 5 years younger look after 3 sessions of Thermage.*

Which is better – Thermage or Ultherapy?

We carry both treatments because in reality, Thermage and Ultrasound Skin Tightening targets different modes of skin tightening. Thermage removes the wrinkles in your skin. On the other hand, Ultrasound Skin Tightening solves the problem of saggy and droopy skin by giving the skin a lifting effect.

FAQs

thermage-CPT-device

What is Thermage?

Thermage is a safe, non-invasive procedure that is clinically proven to help smooth, tighten and contour skin for an overall younger looking appearance.* The treatment delivers natural looking results with little to no downtime – on all skin colours, on and off the face, all in a single procedure.* Since there is no surgery involved you can generally return to normal activities immediately following the procedure. It has been approved by the FDA since 2002 and available only in the doctor’s office. The latest Thermage procedure offers Comfort Pulse Technology, significantly improving treatment comfort. It works on all skin types.

How does it work?

Thermage is a deep heating technology that uses radiofrequency (RF) to heat the skin. A smooth flat tip delivers Thermage’s unique radiofrequency technology, which safely heats the deep collagen-rich layers of the skin. This heat helps to tighten existing collagen that have become loose with age and stimulate the formation of new collagen over time, which reduces sagging, renews contours and improves the thickness and texture of your skin.*

Each treatment takes about 45 minutes to 1 hour for the face. Only a single treatment is usually sufficient to deliver results.*

Who performs the procedure?

Only physicians are trained to use the Thermage effectively for best outcome with minimal side effects.*

Which areas of the body can you use Thermage for?

It can be used safely and effectively on the face, eyes, abdomen, arms and thighs. It also reduces the appearance of cellulite.*

What results can I expect?

Wrinkled, crepey or saggy skin can appear smoother; bulging skin can be tighter and firmer.* The eyes may look bigger and brighter with less hooding.* The results are subtle, very natural and gradually improves over time.* You see full results in 6 months and some patients report improvements lasting more than 1 year.*

Immediate result is usually visible and improve over time as the body rebuilds natural collagen. In most patients, measurable tightening and contouring gradually appears in 2 to 6 months following a single treatment session.* Results can last for 1-2 years depending on your skin condition and the process of aging. It’s setting the clock back, but not stopping the clock.*

Results do vary depending on age and skin condition.

Is there any downtime?

There is no special care required and most patients can return to their regular activities immediately after the treatment session, including your own makeup and skincare regime. There may be slight redness immediately after the procedure that resolves in an hour or so and slight swelling that disappears within the day.

Does it hurt?

Each time the treatment tip is applied, there will first be a brief cooling sensation, followed by a brief heating sensation and finally by another cooling sensation. The heating sensation is a sign that the deep layers of the skin are reaching effective temperatures for tightening, whereas the cooling sensation protects the topmost layer of the skin so it prevents blisters. Heat is absolutely essential to see skin tightening results. You may feedback to your treating physician on the level of heat to help maximize your comfort while maximizing results. Vibration of the tip also helps to reduce discomfort.

Thermage has an excellent safety record. Side effects are few and may include redness, swelling, blisters.

Can I get a Thermage treatment in place of a facelift?

Thermage can definitely tighten loose skin but it cannot give the dramatic results of a surgical facelift. If you are looking for a modest improvement without the trauma of surgery, then Thermage is right for you.*

Can I get a Thermage procedure if I’ve already had other procedures?

Thermage is compatible with most other cosmetic procedures and in fact, may complement some procedures such as btx for wrinkles, threadlift and skin resurfacing laser treatments. Thermage may be repeated once a year.

*Note: As this is a medical procedure, results & outcomes are not guaranteed and may vary from person to person.

Non-Surgical Threadlift – Korea Ultra V Threadlift

ULTIMATE FACELIFT PACKAGE

Feel that the years are catching up with you and that your face skin is sagging or droopy?

Looking into the mirror hoping that you can have firmer, lifted skin without any surgery or significant downtime?*

Then, a non surgical dissolvable threadlift is the answer.* No one wants to have an overdone, wind blown look that surgical facelifts tend to create but non-surgical threadlifts naturally lifts saggy skin without any scars or significant pain.* It can reverse jowls and lift the deep folds of skin that form nasolabial folds or marionette lines, helping aging skin return to the youthful V shape face and taking 10 years off your face.*

How does it work?

As we age, our facial skin support structure weakens and we lose facial fat, especially around the cheeks, the eyebrows and other areas around the eyes, the jowls and the neck. The result is a longer, rounder, older-looking face.

As the skin ages, the connective tissue in the skin also becomes thinner. The elastic fibres in the skin undergo a type of breakdown. Thus the face loses some of its elasticity. The lack of elasticity brings with it the loss of certain face-shaping supports. The face begins to wrinkle, sag and droop. Younger people may experience cheek and brow ptosis caused by weakened muscles as well.

For these people especially, a thread lift may be a good alternative to the more invasive procedures necessary to correct problems in older people’s faces. Threadlifts emerged recently because many people would like a facelift but can’t afford it or don’t want the long recovery time of the standard facelift. Threadlifts cost less and require less downtime for many people, as good as a “lunchtime lift or a weekend facelift.* Usually it can be performed in under one hour.

The thread lift provides an actual “lift” and is a minimally invasive procedure.* It lasts for 1 to 2 years and in a milder form, matches the effect of brow lift or a lower face and neck lift.*

What types of threadlifts do we have?

There are two types of barbed threads which are available. These are:

  • Uni-directional barbed threads, which are anchored at a higher level fixation point. Examples are the Silhouette Soft® threadlift.
  • Bi-directional threads, with no anchoring points, inserted within a hollow needle and placed in such a manner that the thread cannot move either way because of the two-way direction of barbs fixing it nicely. Examples are seen in many of the cog threads used in Korean Ultra V Threadlift.

*Note: As this is a medical procedure, results & outcomes are not guaranteed and may vary from person to person.

Korea Ultra V Threadlift

korea v face lift

There are many types of threads used in Korea Ultra V Threadlift, mainly cog threads and mono threads, but they are all made using polydioxanone (PDO), which is a dissolvable suture material commonly used in other surgical treatments. This material is very safe for use as threadlift as it has a long history of being widely used safely in many surgical and medical indications and, as a material, has hardly ever caused any side effect.*

Cog threads are modified for use in threadlift by creating tiny barbs along the threads that act as cogs to grasp, lift and suspend a relaxed facial area. The barbs open like an umbrella to form a support structure that lifts the sagging tissue. These barbs under the skin also tend to gather tissues to fill out and lift the cheeks and sagging skin. Barbs on the thread grab hold of skin tissue. This creates tension in the thread, and the tension lifts the skin tissue. Collagen formation also occurs around the threads and their cogs or barbs, producing an increasing effect over time. This part of the treatment is used for lifting of saggy or droopy skin.*

Korean PDO threadlift can also be used in Nose Threadlift augmentation for a non-surgical, no-downtime procedure to make the nose higher, smaller, sharper instantly. Read more about it here: http://www.tiffinyyangclinic.com/non-surgical-nose-threadlift/.

Mono threads are short, simple, smooth threads without barbs or cones that are placed multiply into the face in a mesh-like fashion for an overall skin tightening result. They work very well to reduce wrinkled skin by creating an overall skin tightening that comes after collagen starts forming around the threads 1 month after the treatment procedure. They complement the process of skin lifting that cog threads can give. Used on their own, they tighten the skin without significant lifting, therefore they are often used in combination with cog threads for a overall improvement in face rejuvenation and youth restoration.*

Price from SGD 1200

*Note: As this is a medical procedure, results & outcomes are not guaranteed and may vary from person to person.

Why at Tiffiny Yang Aesthetics & Surgery?

At Tiffiny Yang Aesthetics & Surgery, the threads we use for our threadlift procedures are top quality imported from Korea.

*Note: As this is a medical procedure, results & outcomes are not guaranteed and may vary from person to person.

How long does Korea Ultra V Threadlift last?

Korea Ultra V Threadlift can last for approximately 1 to 1.5 years, depending on your age, lifestyle, and facial movement patterns. As more collagen is produced over time, the results of the Korea Ultra V Threadlift will also gradually become better and peak at approximately 6-9 months after the procedure.* An advantage of the dissolving threads is that additional threads can be inserted at a later date if further lift procedures are required.

Downtime and Length of Thread Lift Procedure

Traditional face and brow lift surgeries are more invasive, and cause more trauma to the skin which requires more recovery time. As the dissolvable thread-lift procedure is less invasive, patients generally see less swelling, and are normally able to return to work and social settings almost immediately.*

In addition, as the dissolvable thread-lift procedure does not involve any cutting of the skin, only topical or local anesthetic is required.

As the procedure is non-invasive, side effects are rare and you may experience some light bruising which will go away in a few days.

Depending on the area that lifting is desired, the thread-lift procedure usually takes 30 minutes to an hour.

*Note: As this is a medical procedure, results & outcomes are not guaranteed and may vary from person to person.

Synergism with other Procedures

Our Thread Lift procedures can be combined with other aesthetics medical procedures at our clinic. The usual combination which produces extremely synergistic results is with:-

Thermage & Ultrasound Skin Tightening (Radiofrequency & Ultrasound therapy). Thermage and Ultrasound treatments promote collagen remodeling and tightening, which enables the skin to look younger.* Check out our Ultimate Facelift Package here.

Dermal Fillers. Sagging and loss of volume are the two most common signs of aging. Sagging can be resolved with the threadlift, whist the loss of volume can be corrected by using our dermal fillers. When combined, the effect of restoring youthfulness is synergistic.*

Meso Dermal Lift with Btx. The reduction in facial muscle activity adds to the lifting effect for some. There is also a method of anti-wrinkle skin injection which tightens the skin at the sides of the face and of the brow and forehead by effecting skin contraction where the anti-wrinkle injection is applied. This adds significantly to the lifting effect and smoothening of the skin.*

*Note: As this is a medical procedure, results & outcomes are not guaranteed and may vary from person to person.

It is a Myth that the dissolvable Thread Lift procedures on the face will change the original facial features of your face. The Reality is that as a minimally invasive procedure, Korea Ultra V Thread Lift essentially repositions facial soft tissues to their original location.*

Which areas can you treat with Threadlift?

You can use threadlift to lift and tighten the following areas of loose skin*:

  • Nasolabial folds, laugh lines
  • Jowls, marionette lines
  • Droopy eyelids, brow lift
  • Jawline sagging
  • Neck lines, even turkey neck
  • Nose augmentation, including nose tip
  • Décolletage
  • Post partum abdominal loose skin

How long does non-surgical Threadlift last?

Non-surgical threadlift can last for approximately 1 to 1.5 years, depending on your age, lifestyle, and facial movement patterns. As more collagen is produced over time, the results will also gradually become better and peak at approximately 6-9 months after the procedure.* An advantage of the dissolving threads is that additional threads can be inserted at a later date if further lift procedures are required.

Downtime & Duration of Procedure

Traditional face-lift surgeries are more invasive, and cause more trauma to the skin which requires more recovery time. Some downtime is expected due to some swelling and bruising but which resolves in a few days.*

In addition, as the dissolvable thread-lift procedure does not involve any cutting of the skin, therefore it is scarless, and only topical or local anesthetic is required.

This method is extremely safe. There is no cutting surgery and the sutures are absorbed after 6-9 months, leaving no trace. Long term side effects are rare.*

Depending on the area that lifting is desired, the threadlift procedure usually takes 30 minutes to an hour.

Our Ultimate Facelift Package

A combination of all the 3 treatments above can give great result of skin tightening, lifting, jawline definition – reversing your age by 5 to 10 years.*

There is an ultimate way of combining the treatments above to achieve more dramatic results, which potentially spares the need for more drastic face-saving measures.* Heat stimulation by Thermage or Ultherapy by Ulthera® stimulates more collageneogenesis around the threads that have been placed under the skin by heating them up for even more collagen and elastin production. The end result is a greater synergistic skin lifting and tightening effect, as compared with each procedure alone.*

“Medical Aesthetics: Fabulous, Not Fake”

Instant Facelift by Btx Dermal Lift

Have you had your Botox jab recently?

There are many names for this treatment – you may have heard of micro btx or meso btx or btx dermal lift etc. Essentially, it gives a mini facelift immediately without the downtime and pain of threadlifts or skin tightening machines.* This technique has been improved over the years and advanced to a stage where btx alone may be used to achieve face lifting effect.* It is a great adjunct when combined with other skin tightening procedures such as Thermage, Ulthera and/or Threadlift, or it may even be used on its own for a quick fix before a big event.

Minute injections of btx are placed at skin level all over the face to cause skin contraction and tightening.* The effect is immediately visible and also improves over 1 week.* The only drawback is that it does not last very long, typically only a couple of months for one treatment. However, a touch up treatment session at 2-4weeks can help anchor the effects further so that it may last up to 6 months thereafter.*

This treatment can be used to:

  1. Improve droopy eyes,
  2. Lift the brow,
  3. Reduce forehead lines naturally,
  4. Reduce neck lines,
  5. Create definition for the jawline,
  6. Lift the jowls and laugh lines, and
  7. Slim the face from excess saggy skin – which is our all time favourite.*

Side effects

Multiple tiny wheals may be seen on the skin surface for 1-2 hours on the day of treatment only. Thereafter, there is almost no sign of a procedure done once the btx has been absorbed after 4 hours. Slight small bruising and needlemarks may be seen but certainly may be concealed with makeup – there is no downtime at all.

*Note: As this is a medical procedure, results & outcomes are not guaranteed and may vary from person to person.

Acne Removal – OmniLaser© LED Light Treatment

acne-types-causes-treatment1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you have acne, the Omni-Laser LED Light treatment will help eradicate acne. It is indeed well known as a superb treatment for acne!

Clinical research have shown an approximate 82% reduction in inflammatory acne lesions, and around 75% of patients respond with excellent results and are happy with the outcomes. Patients generally see an improvement in acne eradication as early as the 4th treatment.

What are the Causes of Acne

You already know this, but acne is not solely caused by eating oily foods but by bacterial infection and subsequent inflammatory response. Acne occurs when the sebaceous glands on a person’s skin produces too much oil or sebum. The excess sebum then clogs the skin’s pores, causing bacteria on the skin to take root and grow within the pores. Our skin responds to the bacteria growth by inflammation and reddening of the skin which are the famous outward signs of acne.

A common bacteria responsible for acne redness and inflammation is the bacteria known as Propionibacterium. It had been clinically proven that the Propionibacterium bacteria is killed and eliminated when the Omni-Laser LED blue wavelength light is shone on it. With no bacteria present on the skin, the inflammation and redness goes away as well.

The Omni-Laser LED red wavelength light is also known to stimulate healing for compromised tissue where the skin has been damaged by the acne outbreak.

What Acne Treatments are Effective?

That is why the best treatment for acne will be to alternate between the blue and red Omni-Laser LED lights to eradicate bacteria and promote skin healing. From experience, this method of treatment can clear 70-80% of acne lesions. The benefits continue even after the treatment finishes, usually lasting at least 6 months though a few top-up treatments might be needed.

These excellent acne elimination results come with no downtime or pain, and is suitable for every one of all ages. It is safe for all skin types, even sensitive skin can benefit and improve from the Omni-Laser LED light treatment.

Best results are achieved by also using a suitable skincare product recommended by your cosmetic doctor, and having a hydrafacial or hydrodermabrasion facial treatment to wash off the excess oil and sebum on the facial skin.

Here is a brief diagram to explain what the red & blue wavelengths of Omni-Laser Lights can do:

Red & Blue

Concisely, the Omni-Light Laser treatment utilizes the Omni-Laser blue light wavelength to destroy and eliminate the bacteria in the skin, and the Omni-Laser red light wavelength to stimulate healing.

It is a Myth that there are no effective acne removal treatment, and that one has to wait it out or just use an over the counter anti-acne cream. The Reality is that there are very effective clinical procedures & treatment which eliminates acne. You don’t have to live with acne or “wait it out”.

What is the recommended treatment course?

The recommended full course of treatment is 8 to 10 sessions, alternating between blue and red, over a 8-10 week period. Each session lasts for about 30 minutes. On average this should be able to eliminate approximately 70-80% of acne lesions. The benefits continue even after the treatment finishes, usually lasting at least 6 months. Sometimes a few more treatments may be needed.

We also recommend the appropriate acne skin care products during treatment.

Pricing SGD 800 for 10 sessions

婴儿针 PDRN

smooth clear skin

This picture is not reflective of any results of treatments at our clinic. It is not a picture of our patients.

Desiring to restore your skin back to baby soft skin? Now there just might be the chance to do so with Korean’s latest famous micro-cosmetic treatment to regenerate skin and restore the youthful softness of your dull and tired skin.*

What is PDRN treatment (also famously known as 婴儿针)?

Polydeoxyribonucleotide (PDRN 婴儿针) is an ingredient made up of deoxyribonucleotide polymers where 50 to 2000 base pairs are combined in a chain and is known to accelerate cell proliferation, so helping in regeneration of skin and tissue. PDRN 婴儿针 exists in small amount in newly formed tissues. It standardizes the DNA structure into the right size, replacing the damaged and aged skin with young and healthy skin. As a deoxyribonucleotide linear polymer, which is a combination of purine and phosphodiester bonds forming the monometric unit of pyrimidine nucleotides, PDRN 婴儿针 is known to selectively act on the A2 purinergic receptor to help cell growth and neogenesis. It has been used for clinical treatment of orthopaedic conditions such as plantar fasciitis, other forms of chronic tendinosis and certain skin ulcers, with improved wound healing, relief of skin oedema and reduction of pain. In 2008, PDRN 婴儿针 was approved for use in tissue repair and treatment of wound in skin graft by Korean FDA.

Salmons have great amounts of DNA which is very similar to the DNA base composition with humans. PDRN 婴儿针 is the component harvested from salmons to use in cosmetic skin treatment in humans. It is now the cutting edge treatment in Korea for skin rejuvenation and restoration.

How is it administered?

There are more than one way to use PDRN 婴儿针 in skin treatments, one of which is to apply it topically after fractionated laser treatment or Infini. It can also be applied with needleless electrophoration to improve absorption into the skin. It can be used on its own for results based on its own merit too. Many Korean brands carry this product, such as New-DN.

Indications for PDRN 婴儿针 treatment:

  1. Skin regeneration: skin rejuvenation – improve skin tone, brightness, elasticity, wrinkles and fine lines; reduce and control acne; shrink pores; aid in post treatment recovery; general anti-aging treatment.
  2. Scar treatment including improvement of acne scars and stretch marks.
  3. Scalp care: for hair regrowth or to improve survival rate of hair transplants.

You may also combine with skin boosters (水光针) treatment for instant hydrating and smoothening effect.

Price for 婴儿针 PDRN treatment SGD 520

Neck Lines

beautiful neck

Having neck lines? Your neck also gives away signs of your age and is the most telling, next to your hands. On top of looking after your face, having a beautiful neck also counts towards maintaining a youthful appearance.*

Our recommendation for treating neck lines safely and effectively*:

  1. Thermage neck for skin tightening
  2. Dermal filler treatment of neck lines
  3. Btx skin tightening of neck lines

How does Thermage help neck lines?

Thermage is an effective skin tightening treatment using the US FDA approved machine device to iron out wrinkles and fine lines. It is the best treatment available for improvement of skin texture and reducing static wrinkles.*

Neck lines are formed when the skin on the neck becomes loose and there is frequent creasing at certain flexure lines. This can be partially reversed with skin tightening treatments such as Thermage which irons out the wrinkled skin texture.*

You may read more about it here: http://www.tiffinyyangclinic.com/thermage/

How does dermal filler help neck lines?

Neck lines are static lines formed by frequent creasing of the skin at neck flexure lines. Dermal fillers are known to be the best treatment for static wrinkles by filling up the depressed wrinkle lines.* Although a few injections may be required, it is still relatively painless due to the very fine needles used only superficially.

How does dermal Btx help neck lines?

This is a complementary treatment to the above two treatments and should not be done on its own due to the lesser effect it is expected to give. Dermal Btx can also help in skin tightening to a certain extent and therefore, may reduce neck lines when it is performed around these neck lines.*

Package Price (all 3 treatments included) SGD 3280

You may also do the treatments separately at a la carte price.

Removal of Milia Seeds

This picture is not reflective of any results of treatments at our clinic. It is not a picture of our patients.

A lump here, some bumps there. Want to get rid of those?

Whether you have moles, skin tags, oil seeds or comedones, we have a way to remove them without leaving any sign behind.* With our expertise and gentle skill, we gently remove what is unsightly to you with minimal pain or scarring.*

Skin tags are small flaps of tissue that hang off the skin by a stalk. These are not to be confused with warts, which are due to overproliferation of the outermost layer of skin, especially keratinocytes, due to infection by the human papillomavirus.

Milia are white papules made of keratinatous cysts in the pores. This is different from closed comedones (or whiteheads) which are papules made of sebum in the pores.

Seborrheic keratoses, or “seborrheic warts”, are dark and benign overgrowths of keratinocytes, which are found in the topmost layer of the skin. They are not viral warts either, as they are not caused by the human papillomavirus. You can tell that these are seborrheic keratoses by their distinctive “pasted-on” appearance.

All of these can be easily removed in the doctor’s office as a quick and simple procedure.*

*Note: As this is a medical procedure, results & outcomes are not guaranteed and may vary from person to person.

Moles are growths on the skin that are brown or black in colour. They are caused by collections of melanocytes (cells that produce melanin in the skin and are responsible for pigmentation). They appear from birth or at anytime in the first 30 years of a person’s life. They can appear after sun exposure or after pregnancy. If a mole is changing in shape, size and colour or if it itches and bleeds, it may be a sign of something more sinister.  Most moles, however, are not dangerous and can be removed easily.*

How to tell if a mole is dangerous?

A – Is there Asymmetry in the mole?

B – Is the Border of the mole irregular?

C – Is there a change in Colour of the mole or more than 1 shade/hue in a single mole?

D – Is the diameter of the mole more than 5mm?

E – Is the mole Evolving or Elevated above skin surface?

Removal of Moles

There are essentially 2 methods of mole removal.

In the first and easier method, the mole is simply zapped off with a laser knife. This can be done if the moles are small, multiple and are likely to be benign, which means histology is not necessary. This method leaves less scarring and downtime, and is the preferred method if all preceding conditions of the moles are met.*

The second method requires excision of the mole entirely before sending for histology, which tells whether the mole is benign or not. It is the method of choice if the mole looks suspicious or if you are anxious to be sure that it is indeed not cancer. This method, however, can be slightly more painful and potentially leaves a linear scar behind.*

Tattoo Removal

Did a tattoo a long time ago and regretting it now? Perhaps it was badly done and now an eyesore?

We have the perfect solution. Our Q-switched ND:Yag laser is highly suitable for removal of most tattoos* (except green coloured ones), whether it is a picture tattoo on your body or eyebrow / eyeliner / lip tattooes on your face. Laser light is absorbed by the chromophores (colour pigment) of the tattoo and fragments into little pieces. This is then broken down and absorbed by the body over a time.*

Multiple sessions may be required, depending on how professionally the tattoo was done.* Possible side effects include transient hyper pigmentation or scarring.

*Note: As this is a medical procedure, results & outcomes are not guaranteed and may vary from person to person.
