Dr. Siew Tuck Wah, Medical Director of Radium Medical Aesthetics shares with us some affordable anti aging treatments that are effective for fighting signs of aging and won’t put too big a dent in your wallet.
Best Skin Lifting Treatment
ANTI AGING TREATMENT Silhouette Soft Thread Lift
WHAT IT INVOLVES It uses resorbable sutures with tiny bidirectional cones. These special sutures are completely safe for use in the human body. The fine threads are inserted under the skin using a fine needle. Slight pressure will be applied on the treated area by pushing the threads upwards until they are taut and embedded under the skin.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT The sutures provide a support structure to lift sagging skin. The bioabsorbable cones in the sutures are used to anchor and lift the skin to its new lifted position. Over the next few months, the skin will continue its rejuvenative effects by stimulating collagen production to replace loss volume. Even though the threads will dissolve after nine months, the skin will stay in its new lifted position for another 1.5 years.
TIME TAKEN This treatment takes about 45 minutes excluding the time taken to prepare and administer local anaesthesia for the comfort of the patient.
BEST FOR Men and women with sagging skin who want to achieve immediate and visible lifting of the facial contours.
PRICE Starts from S$1,688 depending on the number of threads required.
Best Facial Sculpting Treatment
ANTI AGING TREATMENT Precision Facial Sculpting With Dermal Fillers

There are several types of fillers with different viscosity to enhance the profile of your face, providing the finest, most natural-looking result.
A numbing cream is applied on the skin before the treatment to ensure patient’s comfort. The doctor uses a fine needle to deliver facial fillers to restore, shape and lift the face. There may be some mild swelling but it should be resolved in a few hours.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT Hyaluronic acid fillers are commonly used to treat the forehead, cheeks, chin, nose, under eyes, and lips. Because of its versatility, facial fillers can achieve lifting of sagging facial contours, restore loss volume and create better definition for your face.

ANTI AGING TREATMENT Radiolysis Facial Fat Slimming
WHAT IT INVOLVES Radiolysis Facial Fat Slimming treatment uses radiofrequency to ‘trim the fat’ to define the contours of the face.
