Several years ago, beauty treatment used to be invasive and posed a lot of dangers to Singaporean men and women seeking to enhance their looks. Luckily, with the advancement of technology, you no longer have to put yourself at risk. With plenty of non-invasive beauty treatments available on the market, it’s possible to enhance your appearance without going under the knife. For youthful, wrinkle-free skin, check out these five recommended non-invasive anti-aging treatments:
- Tighten and slim loose skin on arms: Radiofrequency Skin Tightening
There’s a new radiofrequency technology called Thermi RF that melts your fat tissue, gets rid of bulges and tightens loose skin. The heat stimulates collagen which then helps in skin contraction and tightening once the fat has been dissolved. Though there’s no downtime for this treatment, expect to experience some side effect of swelling on treated areas. Results are visible within three to six months.
- Remove redness on skin: Pulsed Dye Laser
As you age, you’ll notice redness on your skin due to various reasons like acne scars, acne, dilated blood vessels, broken capillaries, or rosacea. To remove blotchy appearance caused by pigment spots and small red vessels, a pulsed dye laser treatment, which is intense yet gentle enough on the skin, can be an option to consider. The treatment selectively destroys problematic blood vessels without ruining the tissues surrounding them. Some minor side effect like redness is to be expected.
- Repair sun damage: Laser Skin Resurfacing
Prolonged sun exposure will inevitably lead to sun damages, which will grow increasingly visible as you age. Repair them by getting a laser skin resurfacing treatment, which helps by promoting the regeneration of collagen using radiofrequency energy. Compared to similar treatments like CO2 lasers, this treatment poses less pain and downtime, with long-lasting effects of up to eight to ten years. Five full treatments are necessary to achieve the intended results. A minor side effect of skin redness is to be expected.
- Tighten loose skin around the neck: Radiofrequency Body Contouring
Using radiofrequency technology to treat loose skin around the neck has proven to be more reliable, effective and less painful compared to older treatments like Thermage. With radiofrequency body contouring, thermal heat is delivered into the deep layers of your skin to stimulate the production of new collagen. Results are normally visible after a couple of treatments, with no side effects, downtime, or anesthesia required.
- Treat fine lines around the eyes: Dermal Filler
Back then, those who have fine lines around the eyes would turn to Botox, which often leaves you with a creepy-looking expressionless face. These days, it’s a lot safer with dermal filler, a smooth-textured gel made from hyaluronic acid that’s gentle on the skin. The treatment also prevents the breaking down of existing collagen and promotes collagen production. Expect minor side effects like itching, redness, bruising, or swelling.

Not only are the treatments safer, pain-free, faster and almost without downtime, they’re also generally cheaper than old and more invasive beauty treatments such as Botox, microdermabrasion, CO2 lasers, liposuction, Ulthera, and Thermage, all of which can be painful during and after treatment. Do your research to find the best treatment, and consult with a dermatologic surgeon to consider the best treatments based on your skin type and health condition.
