2020 was a challenging year with the pandemic, and we could all use a skincare refresh and glow up in 2021. A few months into the new year and we’re finally allowed to head out and aesthetic services are back in. With advancements in technology, we can look to other options that can complement our daily home beauty regimes to achieve our aesthetic goals.
Due to the pandemic, we’ve been constantly wearing masks, and the importance of taking care of our face has become more apparent. From your eyes to your lips, you’re spoilt for choice with a variety of treatments that will give you the glow up you’ve always desired - you’ll look reinvigorated and no one will know you’ve been on Zoom all day.
As the saying goes, “the eyes are the windows to the soul”, and this rings even truer with half our face covered most of the time. There has been an increasing trend of focusing on aspects around the upper face, especially areas around the eyes.
Doctors predict patients will look at optimising procedures around the eye area for natural-looking and permanent results. For example, non-surgical enhancements like eyebrow lifting can help lighten and brighten the area around the eyes. Optimising your eye area can make you look brighter and better rested.
Although our lips are pretty much hidden for most of the day, lip-focused procedures are still very much in demand. With the release of hyaluronic acid-based lip fillers and more, people continue to yearn for the perfect, plump yet natural-looking lips. Always communicate your desires and concerns with your aesthetic doctor so they can deliver a lip augmentation that best suits your face and personality.
The biggest downside of having to constantly wear masks is the dreaded maskne. Conversations of acne have hit an all-time high because of the oil and sweat that our masks tend to harbour. That, plus the Singapore heat and humidity creates the perfect recipe for worsening skin issues that already exist or cause new ones.

The pandemic also had us staying indoors more often, which led to us inadvertently packing on some pounds. Now that we’re allowed out again, people have started focusing on their body. Other than hitting the gym and going on diets, it gave rise to popularity in body enhancement procedures.
New body contouring procedures with little downtime have been increasing in popularity, and will not be going away anytime soon. For example, RF Slimming (Radiofrequency slimming treatment), which utilises radiofrequency to promote slimming by producing heat safely while penetrating deeper into the skin to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. These radiofrequency treatments promote effective slimming and tightening without the risk of permanent skin discolouration, making it an extremely safe option.
One example is the Onda Coolwaves, which is a type of RF Slimming treatment that can help you achieve your desired body safely and effectively. Aptly named, the Coolwaves refer to special microwaves that selectively target fat cells while, at the same time, a cooling system cools parts of the skin to counteract the heat emitted through the microwaves. This provides a more comfortable and safer procedure.
Sometimes we get our desired body size too rapidly, and this comes at the cost of stretching skin. Other reasons for stretch marks could be puberty, pregnancy, intense weight training or rapid growth in muscles. Having stretch marks can be frustrating and difficult to get rid of.
The Stretch Mark Buster Combo, LDM + Neogen Plasma treatment employs thermal energy to stimulate collagen and elastin remodelling. LDM activates fibroblasts to improve skin elasticity and remodel connective skin tissues. This dual treatment makes it highly effective in removing stubborn stretch marks.
Commonly a taboo topic amongst females, feminine health is an aspect that is crucial to a woman's overall health. 50% of postmenopausal women experience vaginal atrophy where dryness, discomfort, difficulty with sex and urination greatly decreases their quality of life.
In fact, 60% of women experience vaginal laxity after childbirth that impacts their satisfaction with their sexual lives. The three main concerns when it comes to feminine health are the external appearance of the vagina, postmenopausal and childbirth vaginal laxity and vaginal atrophy. In order to help with that, one can consider vaginal tightening to help with issues like overall vaginal discomfort and urinary incontinence.
With these concerns towards feminine health heavily in mind, the Venus Fiore from Venus Concept can help meet the needs of the female clients. This revolutionary machine allows for three platforms of treatment:
By combining Multi-polar Radiofrequency (RF) and Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields (PEMF), it aims to encourage the growth of new collagen and elastin fibres to help regenerate firm and healthy tissues while increasing the rate of healing and improving blood circulation.
The RF uses a safe and controlled heating method where heat can be distributed deeper into the tissues for collagen remodelling and synthesis. It is not absorbed by melanin, a pigment in the skin and is safe for all skin types. The PMEF is a non-thermal mechanism that functions to induce the release of fibroblast growth factors that will trigger the synthesis of collagen and the formation of new blood vessels for tissue regeneration.
The three applicators are fitted with single-use, disposable tips to ensure safety and hygiene during the procedure. It can fix the following problems:
Postmenopausal women or women who have recently given birth may notice a sudden increase in the size of the mon pubis due to the result of increased fatty deposits. This may lead them to feel self-conscious and uncomfortable in tight-fitting clothing. As such, the applicator uses RF to heat the fat pads without damaging the surrounding skin cells. It will lead to cell death of the fat cells, which will help in the issue.
As a result of age or pregnancy, collagen and elastin fibres experience wear and tear that will lead to decreased elasticity of the skin. It can give the labia a flared and sagging appearance that may lead women to feel self-conscious. This treatment uses RF to heat the collagen and elastin fibres. It induces a recovery response that increases the production of collagen and elastin molecules. As such, it will also strengthen the existing collagen fibres and tighten the labia. It can also help with circulation and collagen production.
Many women experience dryness, discomfort and difficulty with sex and urination due to changes in the hormonal balance due to age and pregnancy. This is known as vaginal atrophy and can cause discomfort in day to day life. By safely heating the vaginal canal, it aims to trigger a similar healing response which stimulates collagen growth, tightening the vaginal walls. It also aims to increase neovascularity thereby improving sensations during intimacy and improving moisture levels, thereby providing comfort.
The treatment, which lasts approximately 10 - 15 minutes per area, employs a safe heating method that ensures the treatment is comfortable. It has minimal downtime and patients can go back to their routine immediately after. On occasion, they might experience redness that will resolve within a day.
