At Skin Aesthetics, we don't believe in changing people's faces so drastically. For us, it's more about replacing the volume that a person has lost, to help them look more like their younger selves. No matter how good someone's skin is, volume loss from the facial fat pads and the bone is something we can't address on the surface. This is where small amounts of the right dermal filler placed in the right places can make a huge difference to the overall appearance of the face.
Prevention is better than cure. It is much easier to maintain good skin rather than treating it once the damage has already been done. Even if some damage has already been done, it is never too late to start preventing any further damage. Our first step is about identifying the risk factors which are speeding up the aging process, and take steps to avoid those. The other aspect of prevention involves using the right skincare products for your skin type, which we always advise on during the consultation.
Whether it's lines and wrinkles that bother you, or spots or pigmentation, this step is all about getting the skin to it's best condition possible, so that it would be easier to maintain. Skin treatments almost always require a course of treatments. This is because the skin is constantly regenerating itself, so only after a full skin cell cycle of 6-8 weeks can you see the optimum result. Our skin treatments include chemical peels, microneedling or mesotherapy. Depending on what we are treating, you may need a combination of these to give you the best results, and this is what we'll be discussing with you in the consultation.
Although these treatments can dramatically enhance the overall result, they are not for everyone. This step consists of the injectable treatments such as botulinum toxin and dermal fillers, which carry more risks than the skin treatments. The aims of these treatments are to modify excessive muscle contractions to re-balance the face, or to replace volume that has been lost through the aging process. Most people are happy with the skin after steps 1 and 2 and decide not to have anything invasive, which is absolutely fine. The pros and cons of each procedure with be explained to you during the consultation, so you can make an informed decision.
We treat every patient individually, taking the time to understand what has happened to your skin, what you are currently suffering with and working towards, preventing it happening again in the future to ensure your skin is shining and your smile is beaming.
Your initial consultation will last between 45 minutes to an hour, and in this consultation, we will uncover past damage, assess your current symptoms and create a plan to ensure your skin looks great in the future.
Start by booking a phone consultation with one of our doctors first. They can find out a bit more about your concerns and answer your questions, and will then book you in for the face-to-face consultation if they feel that they can help you.
Once you have booked your initial consultation at one of Skin Aesthetics clinics, you will meet with your Doctor who will examine your skin and ask questions to understand your concerns in a holistic way. They will follow the 3-step approach to give you a complete treatment plan, which will always include skincare advice, often some skin treatments, and if necessary, injectable treatments.
The treatment phase will last around 2-3 month, by which time you will see the optimum result for your skin. At that time, you will meet with your doctor again, who will review your skin and advise you on your maintenance regime.
Skin Aesthetics was founded by Dr. Qian Xu to set and maintain a high standard within the aesthetics industry. We believe that aesthetics is not about keeping up with current trends, but it is about having healthy, radiant skin, and maintaining your natural features for as long as possible. It is about bringing out the best version of yourself.
This is why we take a much more holistic approach, which not only will help you look great, but will also leave you feeling happier, and more confident over the long term.
Through our 3-step approach of Prevent, Rejuvenate and Enhance, one of our doctors will create a personalised treatment plan for you to give you the results you want within your budget, and teach you how you can maintain the results for as long as possible.
