You've worked hard for the entire year and much-coveted year-end bonus is finally in the bank account. Instead of blowing it all on yet another handbag or the latest new gadget in the market, spend a little on pampering yourself with one of this five beauty treatments in Singapore in preparation for the 2011 Christmas season and the new year. Whether it's a relaxing hair spa or a little non-invasive nip-tuck you require, we've got you covered on all grounds.
Get a non-invasive facelift with... Thermage
What is it: Erase years off your face without going under the knife with Thermage. The non-invasive, skin-tightening procedure makes use of patented radiofrequency technology to stimulate collagen in the deep layers of your skin and promote new collagen growth, resulting in younger-looking skin.
And with the new Thermage CPT System at SL Clinic, the previously painful procedure now gets bonus points in the comfort area with a vibrating hand-piece that improves and focuses heat delivery. While a certain level of pain tolerance is still required (Dr. Kevin Chua will adjust the heat levels in accordance to your pain threshold), it's a small price to pay for a mostly fuss-free procedure. A big plus: no downtime is required post-treatment.
Results: As a result of collagen tightening, expect smoother, tighter skin with less sagging, redefined contours, as well as softening of wrinkles and fine lines on the face. Results will also improve over time.
Damage: Starts from $3,500 for the eye area, from $4,500 for face and from $6,500 for body
