SL CLINIC SPECIAL
Target areas: Cheeks, neck, cheekbones, eyebrows
Recommended treatment: Gold Thread Lift Through the use of threading into your eyebrows, centre of your face, cheeks and neck, sagging skin tissues are lifted by collagen produced at the bottom layer of the skin. Gold Thread Lift is different from conventional dissolvable thread lift as the threads used are removable, thus making it a safer procedure. The procedure will be completed within one and a half hours, with the need to administer local anaesthetic. Although slight bruising may occur after treatment, clients can resume regular activities and daily routine immediately. Results such as firmer, smoother skin with a youthful appearance can last six to 18 months.

DULL AND DRY SKIN
Target areas: Facial skin
Recommended treatment: Restylane® Skinboosters™ microinjections As we age, our skin loses collagen and hyaluronic acid (HA) that maintains hydration levels. This results in a dull and dry complexion. A medical beauty product of Switzerland, Restylane® Skinboosters™ hydrating microinjections replenish the body’s natural reserves of HA and improves the skin’s overall smoothness, radiance and elasticity, as well as reduces fine lines. For optimal results, a beginner’s course consisting of three treatment sessions (each session performed two to four weeks apart) is advised. You may experience slight swelling and bruising after treatment, but these should heal within a few days. In special cases, symptoms may persist for several weeks. To sustain your revitalised skin, it is recommended to go for maintenance treatment every six months.

FOREHEAD WRINKLES, CROW’S FEET AND FROWN LINES
Target areas: Forehead, outer corner of the eyes, area between eyebrows
Recommended treatment: Botox® injections Botox® injections are derived from a purified protein source. Botox® smoothens facial lines by preventing muscles from contracting into a wrinkle. A minute dose of Botox® injection relaxes the nerve impulses that cause the contractions. As wrinkles lessen and facial lines soften, you will achieve a refreshed and rejuvenated look. The procedure, which takes only 10 to 15 minutes (depending on the target area), is so quick and simple that clients can have it done during their lunch hour. Besides wrinkle reduction, Botox® also serves other purposes such as nose bridge enhancement, lips augmentation and sharpening of face via reduction of jaw muscles. Botox® treatment is extremely popular in South Korea.

LAUGH LINES, DARK CIRCLES AND SUNKEN TEMPLES
Target areas: Nasolabial folds, under eye tear troughs, temples
Recommended treatment: Fillers Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are used to fill up facial depressions or lines under the skin, create more curves or enlarge a facial feature to look more beautiful. When the skin regains smoothness and wholeness, you will look younger and more radiant. Depending on the target area, local anaesthesia may be needed. You can also choose to apply numbing cream before the procedure. After the filler is injected into the skin, the area will be gently massaged and moulded to create the desired shape. The procedure takes approximately 15 to 30 minutes. The duration varies according to the treated area.

Recommended treatment: Thermage CPT System The current Thermage CPT mesotherapy procedure adopts the latest Comfort Pulse Technology™ and uses an oscillating probe that significantly improve comfort levels of clients during treatment.

The non-invasive procedure helps smooth, tighten and contour the face for a younger looking appearance. Even though the effects vary with each individual, most clients only require one treatment session to witness good results.
