We brought you on a Tour to be Up, Close & Personal with Aesthetics Doctors in Singapore

Aesthetics Hub | 20 Aug 2013

We recently asked if you were concerned, confused or curious about the latest aesthetics treatments and procedures. The answer from you was a resounding YES! So to “cut and lift” through the veil of mystery that is the world of aesthetics, we decided to embark on a series of clinic tours, which took place on 27th July and 3rd August.

20 lucky “aesthetics tourists” got the chance to visit some of Singapore’s top aesthetic clinics to learn more about and be privy on the latest treatments and techniques from some of the finest aesthetics doctors in Singapore.

The clinic tours gave participants exclusive behind the scenes experience and they all walked away with some goodies too!

Astique. The Aesthetic Clinic.

At Astique The Aesthetic Clinic we were greeted by the charming Dr Mathew Yap followed by an exclusive one-on-one consultation with each of the participants to discuss their individual needs. A tour of the immaculate clinic followed suit where participants were enlightened on the array of services available at Astique. Astique is a fast growing brand and expansion plans are underway to meet the needs of their ever increasing pool of customers.

A soothing and refreshing cup of herbal tea helped to rejuvenate the visitors too!

Cutis Medical Laser Clinics

Harvard trained Dr Sylvia Ramirez’ primary concern is to first understand a patient’s skin condition. After diagnosis, she will then discuss the best form of treatments and procedures that best fit the patient’s needs. This insight is an example of what participants of the clinic tours were privy to at Cutis Medical Laser Clinics. They also had the opportunity to see an incredible machine that literally “sees beneath the skin” with the capability to detect underlying issues that may surface in the future. This technology has enabled Dr Ramirez to address individual patient’s issues and help them realise their aesthetic dreams.

We were also treated to a “Botox and Fillers” 101 crash course that provided a better understanding of how these popular treatments work and vital information on where they should and shouldn’t be used. We even had the chance to touch and feel the filler “ingredient” itself!

Nu.Reflections Medical Aesthetics

Next stop was at NuReflections to visit Dr Ivan Tan and his team. Here we were treated to a master class in the world of LASERS. With so many procedures and machines and the possible side effects that can occur if not used by highly skilled doctors, it was refreshing and very educational to hear Dr Tan’s talk on the different type of lasers available and their uses. Dr Tan also shed light on how he applies them to fit the individual needs of his clients.

Other interesting facts participants learnt about lasers were the many variables involved in determining which laser is best suited for the different needs. These include skin type, colour, skin issue, thickness, skin shade and many more.

The visit to Nu.Reflections Medical Aesthetics was a truly enriching experience for all the participants and for me personally, I didn’t know that the word LASER is actually an acronym! Thanks to Dr Tan, I now know that it stands for “Light Amplification by the Stimulated Emission of Radiation.”

After a lovely sandwich lunch laid on by the team which was a welcome appetite and energy rejuvenation, we were ready for another clinic visit!

Privé Clinic

Privé is arguably one of the most well known clinics in Singapore and it was here that we met up with the ever youth full Dr Karen Soh and her team. Dr Soh’s clinic in Palais Renaissance is a symphony of relaxation and comfort that evokes a welcoming feeling.

After touring the clinic to see the different consultation and procedure rooms, we were treated to a live demonstration of an actual filler procedure. Dr Soh began by explaining to us the steps that are involved in the procedure and the desired end result before proceeding with the live demonstration. Dr Soh displayed a technique that seemed to blend science with art and the end result was nothing short of impressive; a firmer, plumper looking face where unless you knew the fillers were there, you would never have guessed the individual had a procedure done.

Dr Soh is right in saying that the best procedures are the ones that are not directly noticeable but serve to enhance the overall balance of your face!

We finished off our visit with an amazing Sushi lunch before heading off to enjoy the rest of our weekend!

After the tours...

The pursuit of aesthetic beauty requires a lot of consideration of factors such as a doctor’s track record, qualifications, reputation and even one’s personal comfort level need to be given due consideration. After the tours, we all came away (yes, even us at Aesthetics Hub!) with a deeper understanding of what treatments are available, associated costs, downtimes and possible side effects, but the most important take away was to understand what treatments are right for YOU. Based on this round of clinic tours, we are pleased to and highly recommend any of the clinics we visited.

All the participants also received goodie bags from each of the clinic to thank them for their time, which was appreciated by all!
