Botulinum toxin (Botox) injections for the treatment of dynamic wrinkles involve the precise placement of small amounts of Botox into specific muscles of facial expression, relaxing the muscles and diminishing its activity. As such, the action of Botox depends on the effect of relaxation of the targeted muscle. For example, hyperactive corrugator and procerus muscles can lead to the appearance of deep furrowed frown lines that makes one look old and stern. Relaxing these muscles with Botox will help soften the frown for a gentler and more youthful appearance.

Targets
Dynamic wrinkles such as glabellar frown lines (that appear when you frown), crow’s feet (that appear when you laugh), and forehead lines (that appear when you raise your eyebrows).
Botox can also improve the appearance of gummy smiles, downturned lip corners, bunny lines, fine lines under the eyes and neck bands

Expectations
Depending on patient suitability (age, ethnicity, gender) and preference (natural to complete correction), these dynamic wrinkles can be softened, reduced, or completely eliminated, resulting in a less harsh, less tired, more youthful and energetic appearance.

Skinboosters are hydrating fillers that are injected just under the skin, drawing moisture to the surface to deeply hydrate the skin from within. Skinboosters improve the barrier function of skin on a molecular level to increase its ability to retain moisture, thereby improving skin quality and texture.

Targets
Dry skin, dull-looking skin, fine lines and static wrinkles

Expectations
Deep skin hydration and improved skin elasticity leads to skin that feels smoother to touch and appears dewy and radiant. Fine lines and static wrinkles appear less prominent.

Rejuran Healer contains DNA fragments (PN, PDRN) purified from salmon DNA. These specifically selected DNA sequences promote skin healing and new collagen production by stimulating growth factors and increasing microcirculation; while slowing down skin aging by scavenging and removing free radicals that damage the skin.

Targets
Aging and damaged skin, dry skin, fine lines, static wrinkles, acne scarring and enlarged pores

Expectations
Rejuran’s restorative qualities improves skin quality, elasticity, and its ability to retain moisture, leading to skin that looks and feels smoother, hydrated and youthful. Its ability to promote healing and repair significantly improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, dark eye rings, acne scarring, and open pores.

Triple therapy for keloids is a targeted three-pronged approach to the management of keloids. Keloids form due to excessive wound healing in response to an injury, which has been found to be related to excessive and prolonged inflammatory response, especially in genetically susceptible individuals, and wounds in areas that are under constant tension.

Triple therapy utilizes
1) intralesional steroids to reduce the inflammatory response
2) lasers to reduce the microvasculature that supplies the keloid with inflammatory markers that prolong the inflammatory response, and
3) microbotox to release the tension across the wound to stop the inflammatory response.

Targets
Keloids

Expectations
Improvement in appearance to eventual disappearance of keloids. Compared to conventional treatment with only intralesional steroids where the keloid will improve or disappear but inevitably recur, keloids treated by triple therapy recur slower and may never recur after 6-8 sessions.

Nose augmentation is a commonly requested procedure in Asia, as Asians tend to have shorter and flatter nose bridges, and bulbous or stumpy nose tips. For the same reason, ideal augmentation of the nose leads to very high patient satisfaction rates, as it improves not just the appearance of the nose, but also brings focus towards the middle of the face and visually corrects facial proportions in both the front and side view, making the face appear slimmer, and more V-shaped.

Nose augmentation with fillers can lead to the appearance of a broad and/or tubular nose that looks unnatural and makes the eyes appear closer together, while also carrying an extremely rare but potentially catastrophic risk of blindness. At DrFL clinic, we use bioabsorbable threads made of PDO that are specially customised for nose bridge and tip augmentation, to confer results that appear high, slender, straight, and naturally highlighted, with zero risk of blindness.

Targets
Low nose bridge, short nose, asymmetrical nose, dorsal hump, upturned nose tip

Expectations
Nose bridge is ideally heightened according to proportions of the face, with natural continuity with the forehead. Asymmetry and dorsal hump appear less prominent. Nose tip is angled towards ideal according to proportions of the face. Overall, nose appears high, slender, and straight, with a natural highlight straight down the middle under any light, in the way a makeup artist would contour a nose using highlights in the middle and shadows on the sides.

Lasers for pigmentation harnesses laser energy at specific wavelengths and depths, to target and treat specific pigmentary skin conditions due to sun exposure, aging, hormonal changes especially after pregnancy, genetics, or injury to the skin.

Treat specific pigmentary skin conditions due to sun exposure, aging, hormonal changes especially after pregnancy, genetics, or injury to the skin.

Targets
Melasma, freckles, Hori’s naevus, solar lentigines, post inflammatory pigmentation such as acne or burn marks, as well as unwanted tattooes.

Expectations
Depending on skin type and condition treated, the goal of treatment ranges from visible improvement to complete clearance. For example, melasma is usually visibly lightened and less prominent after 5 sessions of lasers, whereas freckles are usually completely cleared within 2-3 sessions. Diligent sun protection, and in certain cases adjunctive oral and topical treatments, are crucial to optimise results and to prevent recurrence.

Lasers and IPL can be used in conjunction to tone the skin as a lunchtime procedure with no downtime, rejuvenate and firm the skin, as well as reduce blemishes and correct uneven skin tone, to achieve a radiant and glowing complexion.

Targets
Dull complexion, uneven skin tone

Expectations
Even skin tone that reflects light more uniformly for a brighter, more radiant complexion

Intracel delivers radiofrequency (RF) pulses through an insulated micro-needle array to specific depths in the skin. The micro-needling action serves to subcise and releases fibrous scar tissues, while the RF pulses stimulate new collagen formation and promote healing and repair in the treated skin.

Targets
Acne Scars

Expectations
Significant, visible improvement in the appearance of acne scars, both in terms of extent as well as severity. Face appears clearer with more areas scar-free, while deep and irregular scars appear shallower and less severe.

Ultherapy® is the only US FDA-cleared, non-invasive procedure that lifts and tightens the neck, jawline and brow, by delivering high intensity ultrasound energy to the skin’s foundation layer – the layer that is typically targeted in surgical facelifts – without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin. This energy triggers the skin’s natural healing response, triggering a regenerative process that produces new collagen.

Targets
Aging face, sunken appearance, loose skin, heavy jowls, double chin, deep nasolabial folds, depressed brows

Expectations
While some patients observe an immediate lift right after the procedure, the real results of Ultherapy is seen at 2-3 months post procedure as the new collagen works to lift and tighten skin especially over the brows, lower face and neck; making the face appear naturally lifted, slimmer and “smaller”, while significantly improving the appearance of jowling, deep nasolabial folds, and double chin.

SculpSure is the world’s first US-FDA cleared laser treatment for non-invasive lipolysis, designed to safely and effectively eliminate unwanted fat cells. SculpSure’s patented 1060nm wavelength laser has a specific affinity for adipose tissue, ensuring that maximal energy is delivered to the fat cells, disrupting and destroying them; while minimal energy is absorbed by skin and surrounding structures, ensuring that they remain unharmed.

Targets
Abdomen, flanks, back, inner thighs, outer thighs, arms, bra-fat, submental (double chin) area

Expectations
Permanent reduction of fat in specific target areas without surgery or downtime.

It is designed for non-surgical body contouring, cellulite reduction, skin tightening, and wrinkle reduction. Treatments can be done for both face and body, are comfortable with no downtime, and safe for all skin types.

Targets
Aging skin, loose skin, fine lines and wrinkles, body contouring, cellulite, post pregnancy changes

Expectations
Skin tightening, lifting, contouring of face and target parts of the body. Improved skin quality, skin looks and feels smoother, improvement in appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and cellulite.

SHR is an advanced laser technology for permanent hair removal. Conventional IPL or lasers deliver huge amounts of energy in single shots to ensure permanent reduction, which is painful, and may lead to risks such as skin burns and post inflammatory hyperpigmentation (dark marks) , especially in darker skinned patients. Whereas SHR fires multiple shots at lower energy to achieve the same results, while being virtually painless and risk-free, even for dark skinned patients.

Targets
Unwanted facial and body hair

Expectations
While each treatment will permanently and almost completely remove all visible unwanted hairs, it has no effect on dormant hairs, or hairs that “have not grown out”. As such, it is recommended that SHR be done monthly for 6-10 sessions (depending on individual and area), for all the hairs at various stages of the hair growth cycle to be permanently removed
