Aesthetic medicine is the science of reducing the signs of aging on the outside of the body.
Pigmentation is the development of dark spots or patches on the skin’s surface. At a cellular level this occurs as a result of an excess production of melanin by our melanocyte cells. Excessive melanin production is linked to sun exposure, genetic factors, hormone balance, physical damage to the skin surface, and medication. Our powerful technologies zero in on the pigmented areas to break down the melanin and reveal a brighter more even skin tone. Depending on the severity of the pigmentation, results may be achieved in as little as 1-2 treatments.
These are just some of the Aesthetic treatments we offer at LifeClinic:
Unwanted pigmentation on the hands and face are a common sign of aging. Using a Q-switched Nd:YAG laser, they can be safely and painlessly removed, or at least significantly reduced.
With deep pigments, like melasma, the highly controlled laser energy bypasses superficial layers so it is absorbed specifically by the pigment. The pigment then shatters and the pieces are removed by the skin’s own macrophages (white cells). 5-10 treatments are needed for best results.
With superficial pigments, like age spots, the result is even more dramatic. The laser denatures the protein in the pigment turning it in to a small crust, which falls off after a week, removing the pigment with it. Usually 1-2 treatments is all that is required to clear these types of pigments.
Whiter, clearer complexion is now easily possible with very little side-effects or time off work needed.
Used for: Pigment / Pore Reduction
Moles are growths on the skin and can appear anywhere on the body. Moles occur when cells called melanocytes cluster together and usually appear in childhood. Moles can change over time due to sun exposure or pregnancy, to become raised, change colour, or develop hair.
We provide two key treatments that effectively remove moles. A consultation with our medical practitioner is required in order to determine the best treatment for you.
Our mole treatments are:
• CO2 Laser – removes small sized moles
• Minor excision – removes large sized moles with a surgical blade
Tattoo laser removal is a non-invasive procedure that delivers short pulses of light to the deep layers of tattooed skin. This breaks down the tattoo pigment without damaging the surrounding skin and results in a faded tattoo. Results usually require 5-10 treatments to remove or lighten your tattoo. Each session takes approximately 30 minutes.
• Works for tattoos of all colours
• Less pain and less scarring
Chemical Peels have successfully been used to rejuvenate the skin and maintain youthful appearance since the time of Cleopatra.
Modern peels work not only by removing dead skin from the surface epidermal layer, which smoothes out skin roughness and minor skin imperfections, but also by stimulating deeper dermal layers to produce more collagen and filling substances (“glycoaminoglycans”).
Peels can be individually tailored to target specific skin problems like large pores, mature skin, acne or pigmented skin, and are specially formulated from Europe to produce maximum results with minimum downtime.
The procedure takes around 60 minutes, produces an accelerated exfoliation of the skin over the week, and results in noticeably brighter, smoother, more glowing skin.
Used for: Pigment, Pore Reduction, Collagen Stimulation

“One word to sum up my experience with Life Clinic and Doctor is phenomenal. There are not enough words to express my gratitude for all their support and expertise in helping to transform my skin and for giving me an even more youthful look and glow. Highly recommend them!
I’m an expat and of Asian background and have been a patient of theirs for 3 years. When I turned 35 years old, I started to notice the signs of aging. Having a perfectionist nature, these signs started to really nag at me. The biggest issue that led me to Life Clinic was a loss of volume in my upper eyelid which made me look older. A bigger push for trying to improve my upper eyelids was so that I looked my best for my wedding which was in a few months. I’ve never done any treatments and was scared to start this journey, but I figured it was only a consultation.
From the beginning Doctor made me feel so comfortable which really helped to ease my fears. I thought with my limited knowledge, the only way to improve my upper eyelids were fillers which really scared me and that I didn’t want to go through. But he provided a solution that addressed the upper eyelid and my entire face. He is a perfectionist and took a lot of time to review my facial features, structure and skin. Never did I also feel like that he was trying to throw very expensive or excessive treatments like I’ve heard other doctors sometimes do. Based on his recommendation, I proceeded with the Venus Viva and bought a package which came with 5 or 6 sessions for my face.
Venus Viva is a fractional radiofrequency device and it basically burns tiny microscopic holes into your skin. The tiny wounds help the skin to produce new collagen. They put numbing cream on your skin to help minimize the pain/discomfort. I have a high pain tolerance though and can endure quite a bit and plus I was really motivated to improve my skin. Hard to describe the sensation, but it’s like a bunch of elastic bands snapping on your skin. Afterwards, my face looked pink and didn’t look so bad, but as the hours started to pass by it started to turn even more red and swollen. I did this on a Saturday so that I could stay indoors on the weekend. They provide a thick soothing cream to help with the redness and dryness that can come with the treatment. The next day, I Iooked like I had a bad sunburn and my face was really dry. But as each day passed the healing was quite dramatic. One thing that did freak me out, was that I had these tiny white bumps and was scared that I would start to break out. Years ago, I experienced horrible cystic acne and frightened of having another episode. Luckily these little white bumps literally washed away at night. Each treatment my healing was different, for example one time there was just excessive swelling and another time my face looked like it was slightly bumpy. It took about a week for my skin to fully heal.
To conclude my experience with Venus Viva is that it provided amazing visible results that even my husband noticed and he rarely picks up on these things. It helped to address my upper eyelid, remove the fine lines and even better minimized the acne scars and a childhood scar.Plus it gave my skin a really amazing glow and minimized my pores that I didn’t experience the constant breakouts.The healing process may not be so great, but in order to achieve results you may have to go through some unpleasant recovery/symptoms.I loved the results from Venus Viva so much that I did another package and included my neck.Even now, I still see the effects of the Venus Viva.” – Age 39, female, expat with Asian background
