Aesthetic medicine is the science of reducing the signs of aging on the outside of the body.
Wrinkles are the top skin complaint associated with aging. They range from fine lines that may only be noticeable sometimes, to deep creases or folds that are permanently present. Wrinkles have a variety of causes including repeated facial expressions (like frowning or smiling), sleeping position, sun exposure, environmental toxins, nutritional deficiencies, decline of collagen production, and smoking. Whether you have fine lines, deep wrinkles, creases or sagging, our range of services address all skin types and can be applied on the face or the body.
These are just some of the Aesthetic treatments we offer at LifeClinic:
Sculptra® is a NEW generation of filler made out of Poly L-lactic acid, a substance similar to surgical sutures. It has the unique property of not only filling, but also stimulating the skin’s own collagen production.After 3 monthly treatments, the skin naturally continues to improve in texture and firmness as the collagen is being regenerated, leading to a younger, fuller, firmer look. It can be used to restore the lost volume that is side-effect of aging or bring symmetry to an unbalanced face.
Results typically last 2 years.
Used for: Wrinkle Reduction, Facial Contouring, Collagen Stimulation

“Before the treatment, I have sunken features, dark eyes and heavy eyelids and frown lines. I was nervous on the first undergoing these treatments but staff made me feel more relaxed. On subsequent treatments I knew i was in good hands. Very friendly services! I have an awesome results. I love Botox and Sculptra! Gave me a younger and refreshed look.”
THIS IS THE WORLD’S MOST POPULAR MEDICAL BEAUTY TREATMENT.
Botox® is a purified version of nature’s Botulinum toxin, which has the unique property of blocking muscle contraction. Although called a toxin, it is entirely safe and in small amounts can stop the excessive muscle contractions that cause lines around the eyes, forehead and nose. The result is a natural reduction in wrinkles. It can be used to soften a square jaw, reduce sweaty armpits, and reduce excessively large calf muscles for those who love high heels.
With minimal discomfort, Botox® normally only takes about 20 minutes, popularizing it as a lunchtime procedure in many countries. Results normally last 3-4 months, but vary from individual to individual. Most clients love the quick results and will repeat their Botox® treatments 2-3 times a year.
Although Botox® is the market leader, other versions of Botulinum toxin such as Dysport® (from Europe) and Siax® (from Korea) are also available on request for the price conscious.

One of the most outward signs aging is sagging and nowhere is this more visible than on the face. It is caused by loss of bony, fat and muscle support almost everywhere, causing the appearance of sunken temples, sunken eyes, eyebags, and deep lines beside the nose (“naso-labial folds”) that makes the face look older or fatigued.
Fillers, like Restylane® and Juvederm® are gel-like substances, that when injected in the skin can restore lost volume in the face and restore your youthful appearance. They are made of hyaluronic acid, identical to the natural water-holding substance in our skin that holds water and keeps the skin well-hydrated and firm. As we age we lose our own hyalouronic acid, so replacing it with the same material is the most natural choice.
A session takes around 60 minutes and has immediately visible results with very few side-effects. Results can last 6-12 months.

“Very relaxed, excellent, very friendly. Knowledgeable on subjects and shared well.”
– Mr B, age 53
“I was very relaxed and really enjoy the new look. I feel younger because of this. Overall an excellent experience”
“I have sunken eyes and flat, uneven cheeks. I wait about 40-45 minutes for numbing cream that was slathered on my under eyes to take effect. The injection process took about 15-20 minutes. Doctor injected small amounts, take a step back and look at my face,and keep going. After i finished. i looked at my face and was so happy with the result. My cheeks look fuller and even and my eyes are less hollow,which improves entire face structure. Fuller and higher cheeks are lifting entire face, so that i can look fresh and younger”
For those who are experienced at receiving hyaluronic acid fillers, and are looking for something more permanent, then long-term fillers may be the answer.
Aquamid® is a natural-feeling hydrogel made up of 97.5% water and 2.5% polyacrylamide. Polyacrylamide gel absorbs water and can help thicken the gel to a more natural texture. Aquamid® can be used to replace volume loss in areas like the cheeks, chin and deep nasal creasing (“nasolabial folds”). It can even be used to augment finer areas like the nose and lips. They are well tolerated with very few side-effects and results last up to 10 years.
It is important to remember that because they are semi-permanent any minor imperfection in the result may persist, so it is not suitable for people trying fillers for the first time. Our doctors will advise if you are suitable for long-term fillers.

What people are saying
“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

VENUS LEGACY, THE LATEST TECHNOLOGY IN BODY FIRMING
Venus Legacy™ is a non-invasive treatment for tightening skin, reducing cellulite and reducing wrinkles. A hand-held device sends a combination of energies below the skin, to heat the underlying tissue, improve blood flow and stimulate collagen production. It is completely pain-free, has no down-time, and is powerfully effective.
BENEFITS OF VENUS LEGACY™
- Body contouring

HOW DOES IT WORK?
Venus Legacy uses a patented Multi-Polar Radiofrequency, VariPulse Technology™ and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields (MP)2 to deliver heat energy deeply into the skin surface to boost collagen synthesis and break down fat cells. This helps tighten saggy skin, smooth out cellulite, and make your body appear slimmer and more toned. It’s also FDA approved for treating facial wrinkles.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING THE TREATMENT?
A nurse will place some gel and a hand-held device on the targeted area. Customers generally feel a gentle heating effect like a relaxing hot stone massage. Treatments take approximately 30-40 minutes per area. There may be some temporary redness over the area, which settles rapidly. Generally, 6-8 treatments are recommended, although most patients report seeing a difference by the third treatment.
