Cheek Augmentation

Cheek Fillers Singapore

Non Surgical Upper Cheek Contouring

The area of the cheek below the rims of the eyes, spreading out to the sides of the face area is an important region to augment for many older patients. As we age, the natural loss of dermal collagen, thinning of the fat pad and bone resorption will flatten the cheeks. This leads to more saggy skin, heavy jowls, sunken eyes and a downward turn of the lips. Padding the cheeks will lift the face.

The injection of cheek fillers has become a much sought-after procedure in Singapore. Filling the sunken cheek area with dermal fillers, like the hyaluronic acid filler Juvederm Voluma®, can give a natural looking and substantial improvement in the appearance of an aging face. The filler will add volume and make the jowls appear less conspicuous, by lifting the jowls up from the jawline. The injection performed by the doctor is extremely important in creating a natural look. We provide a vast range of effective cheek fillers in Singapore, so patients will rarely require cheek implant surgery.

Jaw Contouring

Neurotoxin Injection for a V-shaped Jaw

Neurotoxin Injection can also modify the contour of your jawline. An attractive female face looks like an inverted triangle, where the top of the face gradually tapers into a sharp chin. A male face typically has a square jawline, which gives the face a box like shape. Jawline contouring using neurotoxin injection is a cosmetic procedure performed on women.

The old method used to sculpt the jawline was to undergo plastic surgery. Many patients did not want to go through the operation to shave the jawbone, or remove the outer layer of the lower jawbone to reduce the muscles there. Facial implants are an effective alternative and be used to amend the shape.

To attain a smaller jawline, today we use neurotoxin injection to shrink overdeveloped masseter muscles. The masseter muscle is located in the jaw, and its main purpose is to move the jaw for chewing food and clenching the teeth. This muscle typically enlarges with age. People who have large masseters will have a square jawline. Nonsurgical jawline contouring with the drug relaxes the masseter muscles, so that the muscle gradually reduces in size. The balance of the face is restored, and her appearance is softened by matching a slim jaw with her other female facial features, like a small nose and large bright eyes.

The treatment is safe, painless, and fast. It is also an effective lunchtime procedure. There is no recovery time, and you can continue with your normal daily activities with no downtime. Long term masseter muscle reduction can be achieved in many patients with a complete course of injections.

Bunny Lines

Bunny Lines

Bunny lines are fine wrinkles that appear when you scrunch up your nose, especially when you laugh or smile deeply. As we grow older, the repeated contraction of facial muscles will form deep skin wrinkles. The more you use your facial muscles, the deeper your wrinkle furrows will become. These wrinkles are known as dynamic lines.

Dynamic wrinkles are only present during certain expressions and can be easily reversed by neurotoxin injections. As your overlying skin becomes damaged and these muscles get stronger, your wrinkles will mature into static skin creases, which are permanently present. It is simply not possible to smooth out permanent wrinkles using neurotoxin injections alone, as you will also require fillers to be injected. It is therefore not a good idea to wait until lines become fixed into the skin, as it is much more difficult to rectify.

Neurotoxin injection is a muscle relaxant that reduces the activity of muscles. When selectively injected into these muscles, the wrinkles disappear. This effect is temporary and will last for about 4 to 6 months. With regular use of the drug, these lines can often be completely erased. The correct dosage and placement of neurotoxin injection is important, to ensure your face remains capable of expression. The results of this procedure eliminate the wrinkles, leaving your face looking fresher and younger.

The most effective areas that can be treated with neurotoxin injection are:

  • The frown lines between the brows.
  • Horizontal expression lines of the forehead.
  • Nose wrinkles (bunny lines).
  • Outer corners of your eyes, commonly known as the crow’s feet; and Brows, to give a lifted and natural brow lift.
  • A wrinkled chin.

Treating dynamic wrinkles early with neurotoxin injection prevents permanent creases from forming, because the muscles that you treat can no longer create strong creases in your skin. By starting neurotoxin injection early, and repeatedly treating your dynamic wrinkles, you will prevent these from maturing into permanent static wrinkles. You may eventually require neurotoxin injection less often.

Treatment with neurotoxin injection is safe and the procedure itself does not take very long. Moreover, an instant recovery means that you can continue with your daily activities with no downtime. Lasting up to 4 to 6 months.

Frown Lines

Frown Lines

Frown lines appear as two deep furrows nestled between the eyebrows. The repeated contraction of facial muscles, sun damage will form deep skin wrinkles. The more you use your facial muscles, the deeper your wrinkle furrows will become.

All facial wrinkles all begin as dynamic lines. Dynamic wrinkles are only present during certain expressions and can be easily reversed by neurotoxin injection. As your overlying skin becomes damaged and these muscles get stronger, your wrinkles will mature into static skin creases, which are permanently present.

Forehead Lines

Forehead Lines

Forehead lines also known as worry lines, as we grow older. Similar to frown lines, the repeated contraction of facial muscles will form deep skin wrinkles. The more you use your facial muscles, the deeper your wrinkle furrows will become. This facial wrinkles are known as dynamic lines.

Chin Augmentation

Chin Augmentation—A Better Profile Without Surgery

A strong chin is an important element of an attractive face. An ample chin can add definition, help create symmetry and bring balance to facial features.For individuals with average to moderate chins, We perform non-surgical chin augmentation by using injectable dermal fillers. This technique is a quick and excellent alternative to surgery.

For surgical candidates who are interested in viewing their potential results before undergoing surgery, this non-surgical method is a great first step.

Non Surgical Chin Augmentation and the Aging Face

As we age, the mandible (jawbone) gets smaller, and we begin to lose fat around the mouth and chin. These gradual changes can cause marionette lines, thinning and wrinkling around the lips, as well as contribute to jowling. Injectable fillers can be placed both around the mouth and along the chin to add volume to the face and create a more youthful appearance. The non-surgical chin augmentation technique places a dermal filler such as JUVERDERM VOLUMA XC under the skin using a needle or micro-cannula to add volume and projection to the chin.

Chin filler treatment is comfortable and requires minimal downtime. This procedure can last for about 9-12 months and hyaluronic acid fillers are reversible if you wish to revert to its original appearance. For an enhanced chin, we recommend to undergo regular injections for maintenance. 

V Shape Face Lift

Getting a V Shaped Face in Singapore

Achieve V Shape & Lifted Face with EnLift & RF

Getting a V shaped face in Singapore is now easier with the new HIFU technologies. High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is a revolutionary treatment, allowing patients to acquire a face lift without surgery. HIFU uses precise beams of ultrasound energy to tighten the skin’s connective tissues, thus lifting the skin. By heating up and stimulating existing collagen fibers, the fibres thicken, resulting in a long-term tightening and lifting effect. HIFU is also effective for age prevention and reversing sagging skin. Our collagen production begins to slow as we age, and the skin’s elastic fibers become less dense. HIFU treatment can help to push up your collagen production by stimulating dermal collagen production, you gain a more youthful appearance.


The earlier generation machines gave an extremely painful experience. Now, with the aid of advanced technology, we have different types of new HIFU machines, the Ensoul Q+ and Sygmalift. The Symalift solves the problem by using gold ceramic oscillator at 1,000 Hz, to deliver its Ultrasound energy via fractionated technology without causing pain. We can now be able to carry out a non-surgical facelift in a painless, injection-free way, resulting in a comfortable experience. Ensoul Q+ is the next generation HIFU with linear shot technology, it works greatly for patients with mature and sagging skin. This technology has been clinically tested and proven to aid patients in effectively tightening and lifting sagging jowls, eye brow areas and reduce double chin. This procedure may cause slight redness after the treatment, but will subside after a couple of hours. Different strength levels can be adjusted to cater to patient's tolerance for discomfort. 


Due to the omittance of pain and downtime, the new HIFU therapy has surpassed the traditional HIFU technology. The new HIFU technology is ideal for facial remodeling, wrinkle reduction, skin rejuvenation and neck lifting. An extremely satisfactory procedure that produce long-term results without surgery.

The new HIFU technology not only tightens the skin, but also melts fat. Hence, it is perfect modality for reducing sagging cheeks, droopy jowls, laugh lines, crow’s feet, eye bags and forehead lines. Both the new HIFU modalities can give a tighter, smaller, sharper and well defined facial shape, as well as a slimmer jaw line and a reduced double chin. It is a suitable procedure for patients of any age and is safe for all skin types. For a more severe sagging skin, we recommend Ensoul Q+ for best results.

Some patients can see results immediately after the first treatment. While other patients began to notice the results after 2 months when the body starts to produce collagen and elastin. Optimal results can be seen after 6 months.

Due to the omittance of pain and downtime, the new HIFU therapy has surpassed the traditional HIFU technology. The new HIFU technology is ideal for facial remodeling, wrinkle reduction, skin rejuvenation and neck lifting. An extremely satisfactory procedure that produce long-term results without surgery.

Laugh Lines (Naso Labial Fold)

What are Nasolabial Folds?

Nasolabial folds are also known as “laugh lines” or “smile lines” are the deep wrinkles or lines that begin at the bottom of the nose and extending down toward the corners of the mouth. Some common factors that causes these lines to start appearing such as age, sun exposure, smoking and facial expression.

As we age, the volume in our cheeks begins to deplete causing the nasolabial folds to deepen as our skin begin to break down the collagen and elastin fibres, reducing our skin’s ability to “snap back” from smiles and other facial expressions. Lack of moisture can also deepen the nasolabial folds. There are many techniques available for reducing the prominence of nasolabial folds without undergoing under the knives, here are some examples;

How are Nasolabial folds treated?

Fillers are most often the first step toward reducing nasolabial folds. Fillers are injected into the fold of nasolabial to add volume to the area and lifts the skin. The type of filler and the amount is dependent on the severity of the fold. The most common fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, a natural building block of skin, and calcium hydroxylapatite, typically found in bones. It works by holding in water at the injection site adding temporary volume and smoother appearance to the skin. It has also been shown to help stimulate the growth of collagen in addition to plumping the skin.

Fillers are easily injected and requires little to no downtime. Some people may experience slight bruising, but makeup can be worn immediately after treatment. An effective lunch time procedure that you may consider to resolve your laugh lines concerns. Fillers can last for a bout 6-9months or up to 1 year, depending on the type of filler that has been used and how quickly your body dissolves it.

Skin Tightening Treatment

If loose skin is the cause of unwanted nasolabial folds, you may also consider skin tightening treatment. Some of these novelty treatment includes; fractional radiofrequency device, ultrasound, or using intraoral laser to stimulate collagen and elastin growth for thicker and tighten skin.

Double Chin

Double Chin – Causes, Treatment & Recommended Removal Method

What causes Double Chin?

A double chin is caused by an extra layer of fat that develops beneath the chin.

A few different factors combine in the body to create a double chin. Understanding these factors may help with understanding ways to get rid of the double chin itself.

  • Age – As we age, our skin starts to lose its elasticity which leads to the appearance of extra or saggy skin that contributed to double chin
  • Diet & Weight
  • Genetics
  • Posture – Poor posture can weaken the muscles of neck and chin, overtime the surrounding skin loses its elasticity when muscles are not used.

Double Chin Removal in Singapore – Our Treatment Method
