Have you wondered why Jennier Lopez looks like she hasn’t aged a day since she was 21? Apart from lucky genes and healthy habits, it is very likely that she had skin enhancements, which she probably started early and carried these on to her 40s.
“When you are in your 20s, it is easy to feel complacent because visible signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles are not of utmost concern. But in fact, this is the decade to start preventive measures to delay the aging clock” says Dr Chua Han Boon, Senior Medical Aesthetics Consultant of the SW1 Clinic. With the advent of so many affordable laser treatments, there are really a lot of choices from hybrid facials to lasers that leave you with just a hint of pink by the time you walk out of the clinic.
“The intuitive understanding that people had in the past and today is the same; they understand that in order to stay youthful-looking, they must not be lazy about caring for their skin. The difference between then and now though, is that the modern individual today wants to do all these without going under the knife too late. And so medical technology has similarly evolved to help people delay major signs of aging. These are available as non-invasive laser and skin treatments across different age groups.” says Dr Chua.

Keep It Spotless
People in their 20s often do not have major pigmentation problems like you see in people in their 30s or 40s. But that doesn’t mean that there are no brown spots or sun damage. For optimal skin health, have photofacials such as IPL or BBL. A single treatment brightens the complexion, and the effect can be observed instantly!
SW1’s Illumi Facial offers the comforts of a facial and also combines the clinical benefits of the IPL for instant luminosity and skin health!
Keep It Fresh
For the younger adults who are looking to make stepwise improvements in all aspects of the skin, Dr Chua recommends SW1 Clinic’s Quattro Toning laser treatment.
Using 4 unique settings of the latest and most advanced picosecond laser technology, this treatment harnesses both fractional and non-fractional laser settings at various wavelengths that refines pores, lightens pigments and scars and brightens skin, all at the same time.
If you thought that sounded like the usual laser toning treatment popularized by large mass-market laser clinics, you couldn’t be more wrong. SW1 Clinic’s Quattro Toning treatment helps achieve a more vibrant complexion with minimum downtime, and most of their patients are surprised to see noticeable results in as early as one treatment. It is touted as one of their best “lunch hour perk me up” treatments, firming and restoring radiance in no time.
