Mind the Gap
Ever wondered why a baby’s skin is so eggshell-smooth? In young skin, the levels of collagen and elastin fibres are at their maximum. However, as we age, accumulated exposure to UV rays can cause collagen levels to decrease, which results in lines, sagging and widening pores. To regain this youthfulness, you will need a plumping face treatment that boosts collagen production from deep within the skin.

Smooth Things Over
The Aesthetics Medical Clinic’s 3-in-1 Collagen Laser combines two different laser treatments and the infusion of an anti-ageing concentrate for fast and visible results. First, skin is thoroughly cleansed before the clinic’s aesthetic physician, Dr Francis Tjang, conducts an in-depth consultation. Available in four modes: Acne, Pigment Lightening, Rejuvenation and Pore-Refining, the numbing cream is applied on your skin before Dr Tjang administers the suitable modes of the ClarityX laser to tighten slackened pore walls and smoothen out skin irregularities.

Pores Be Gone!
Next, the Fractional CO2 Laser is directed onto skin via a spray technique, ensuring that the skin surface area is evenly treated. This promotes collagen production and retexturises uneven skin surfaces, reducing the appearance of enlarged pores and scars. Lastly, a concentrate of soluble collagen, peptides, hyaluronic acid and fibronectin extracted using stem cell technology is infused into the epidermis, for a visibly more refined complexion.
