2020 was a year like no other. While COVID-19 is still affecting our lives in 2021, we see the new year as a brand new start as we put away all the negativity and bring in all the goodness.
As a brand new chapter unfolds, we also want to pursue a brand new “ME” as we learn to love ourselves more. Take more time to look into our inner selves and reflect, declutter our relationships, and embrace positivity.
If dealing with everything in 2020 left you looking old and tired, do not let that derail you from feeling fresh and confident as your start your journey for the brand new year! And how exactly can we do that? These are our picks of some simple and non-invasive treatments for a refreshed and renewed us: the no-downtime treatments Botox and fillers that can rejuvenate our skin and give us the facial contours that we deserve to pamper ourselves with for a fresh and youthful appearance.
Minimise fine lines on your face
Botulinum Toxin A (Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin) can smooth out fine lines on our face. It works by relaxing our muscles to reduce the wrinkles, and is especially effective in treating dynamic wrinkles, i.e. wrinkles that are a result of facial movements, like our frown lines and crow’s feet. We know we’ve definitely grown a lot more wrinkles in the past year! 😫 Time to schedule that Botox treatment!
Improve the appearance of those deep wrinkles
We embrace ageing and all those lines on our face tell a story of a life well-lived. But if they are bothering you, Botox and fillers can easily bring your confidence back while we continue to age gracefully.
Static wrinkles are the lines that form due to the loss of collagen and skin elasticity as we age. Your doctor may use Botox or fillers, or botox and fillers to treat and improve the appearance of your deep wrinkles. Botox can be used to relax the muscles to prevent further deepening of the lines, and fillers can be used to fill in the deep lines and add volume to smooth out the skin.
On top of Botox and fillers, a non-invasive treatment like Ultherapy at Halley Medical Aesthetics also helps to rejuvenate your skin for a refreshed and more youthful appearance. Ultherapy uses micro-focused ultrasound to stimulate collagen formation, lifting and firming our skin to bring back our youth and give our face a more V-shaped appearance. If you’ve ever looked at local celebrities Joanne Peh and Elvin Ng and wonder how they look way younger than they actually are – did you know that Elvin has already hit the big four-zero? – Ultherapy is their answer!
Enhance your facial features
A V-shaped face is an indication of youth and beauty, especially in Asian countries, and they are made popular by K-pop idols and the good looking actors and actresses in K-dramas.
If you find your squarish jawline not to your liking, Botox can relax your masseter muscles to slim your jaws for a more V-shaped appearance. Your doctor can also assess your facial proportions to see if chin fillers are needed to help you achieve a beautiful V-face look.
Of course, fillers can also help you to get a higher nose bridge, fuller cheeks, and even fuller lips for a more attractive look. If hollows under your eyes are making you look zombie-like and older than you really are, undereye fillers can plump up the hollow area and improve the appearance of dark eye circles for a more radiant and youthful you!
Brand new year, brand new me. May 2021 be a great year filled with happiness and new opportunities!
