How To Revitalize Skin Using Supercharged Lasers

Long before the birth of skin renewal lasers, Cleopatra already had science on her side, taking milk baths which contained lactic acid to exfoliate and rejuvenate skin, dead sea salts for its mineral healing properties, honey for its hydrating properties and many more. Today we have medical technology on our side, using supercharged lasers to resurface the skin, effectively plumping up skin and erasing away spots, fine lines and wrinkles. But if you thought only those with problem skin needed lasers, that’s where you are wrong. Lasers now come in wavelengths which also target dyschromia or uneven skin tone and also brightens skin, resulting in the coveted dewy photoshop effect. We speak to Dr Kenneth Lee, who founded The Sloane Clinic 15 years ago and now, helms the 8000 sqft large SW1 Clinic.   Q : Which lasers are best for smoothening wrinkles and scars? Dr Kenneth: Traditionally, the CO2 lasers such as the SmartX laser are best for these. New versions of CO2 lasers are now fractionated and delivered Continue Reading

Which is the best: Threadlift, Filler or Ultherapy?

  With the explosion of lunchtime rejuvenation procedures available, many women are at a loss as to what is the most suitable aesthetic treatment for their faces. The issues facing one looking for non-surgical rejuvenation enhancement techniques are: (1) the extent of what they can accomplish (2) the downtime (this varies between individuals, and what constitutes downtime for one may not be so for another) (3) the longevity of the treatment (or how long the results can last). With this in mind, top on the podium of most popular face-enhancing, youth-reviving therapies in the last five years stand Dermal Fillers, Threadlifts and Ultherapy. Anyone who have not been living under a rock would have at some point heard about their benefits in terms of turning back the ageing clock, reducing lines and wrinkles and lifting skin.   For those who perhaps may have been living in some kind of rock for the past decade, here is a quick run down of what each of the three aesthetic frontrunners do.

Anti-age Your Ears: The Jab to Perk Up Your Lobes

Yes, you have read that correctly. It may sound like the daftest aesthetic procedure yet – but earlobe rejuvenation is now a thing and to make it official, Vogue has said it – 2017 is looking like the year of the ear! Besides gaining popularity with women in forties, fashionistas are also paying a lot more attention to ears these days. If you are wondering why people are focusing on their ears of all places, it’s actually something thats been popping up on the runway for seasons. Take a look at Chanel’s Spring Summer SS18 Paris Fashion Show, where models flaunt their dangling accessories and lobes in heavy metallics and crystals. Whatever you make of the idea, it’s no surprise that the trend has simply thrust another part of women’s bodies into the spotlight. Like any other part of the body, your skin loses collagen and earlobes too lose volume and collagen due to the natural ageing process. Lobes can become elongated, saggy and thin as collagen and natural elasticity Continue Reading

Think Before You Ink: Tattoo Regret In The Eyes Of A Doctor

Tattoos may seem like a good idea in the moment, but sometimes, tattoos are inked on impulse. We spoke to Dr Kenneth Lee, founder of the SW1 Clinic (who also co- founded The Sloane Clinic in 2003) about tattoo regret.   SKINMAG: Do you often see patients who have tattoo regret? Dr Kenneth Lee: Yes, I have seen quite a few over the last decade. They range from pretty young to working professionals who regretted the tattoos they got in their younger years, because the tattoos didn’t fit their lifestyle anymore. The tattoos range from professional, self-inked, very new, old, black tattoos and multi-coloured ones.   SKINMAG: What kind of tattoos do people normally regret? Dr Kenneth Lee: Usually people regret tattoos that label them, such as gang tattoos. I have had to help a young man remove massive yakuza style tattoos on his chest, back and both legs because he wanted to become a policeman. Sometimes people remove easily visible tattoos such as those on the fingers and wrists Continue Reading
