BEST SKIN REJUVENATING PROCEDURE
THE SLOANE CLINIC
Ulthera, RM11,000 for one hour
The treatment: Non-surgical, approved by the FDA, and safe for all skin types, Ulthera is the latest in non-surgical facelift. With real time imaging, medical ultrasound treats collagen and elastin fibres below the surface without harming the outer layer of the skin. Energy from the low levels of focused heat triggers collagen production, enabling dramatic firming and tightening from deep within.
Tip: Ulthera can be done on any part of your face including the forehead, temples, mid and lower face, jaw line, and neck, so you can enjoy a more contoured and lifted appearance. 79 Jalan Maarof, Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur. Tel: 03-2288 1788.

Later, skin is treated to a cooling mask. Moisturiser and sunscreen are applied and the patient is good to go.
Highlight: Results are immediate with a more harmonious skin tone, and a firmer complexion. Radiance is optimised while lines and wrinkles are significantly reduced. D-1-51, Block Dahlia, 10 Boulevard, Lebuhraya Sprint, PJU 6A, Petaling Jaya. Tel: 03-7726 7626.

BEST NONINVASIVE FACE LIFT
Dr. Anna Hoo advises: “Skincare is a total management game. Apart from treatments and procedures, you need to manage your diet and lifestyle to ensure optimal results. There are no shortcuts to looking your best. Eat healthily, take your supplements, and get enough rest – all crucial steps in ensuring good health and beauty.”

Facelift Program, RM6,888 for three hours
The treatment: Using dermal threads and fillers to re-contour, sculpt, and volumise the face, this advanced programme utilises a skin-identical hyaluronic acid volumiser and beautifully restores youthfulness to the chin, cheeks, and cheekbones that have lost volume due to ageing or weight loss. A topical anaesthetic is administered prior to the series of injections that are relatively painless. Sagging naso-labial folds are immediately plumped out; wrinkles and lines seem far less. Take 10 years off your face, with glowing skin that looks firmer, more taut, and visibly lifted.
Highlight: The old adage that when you look good, you feel good certainly holds true in this relatively painless procedure, for which you will get instant effects with absolutely no downtime.
