For years ageing skin was an unmistakable indication of getting older and going through a natural process of wear and tear. Aged skin is less elastic, more dry, and more prone to fine lines and wrinkles. Thankfully due to medical and scientific advances we now know the underlying reasons behind this unwanted transformation, and certain lifestyle habits have been identified to help combat ageing.
However, while simply choosing healthier lifestyles can slow down the ageing process, it cannot reverse changes that have already taken place. Good habits are also usually not enough to significantly slow down your skin’s intrinsic ageing process. This is where the right aesthetic treatments can make all the difference in ensuring that your skin remains bright, youthful, and rejuvenated. Let’s dive into some of these treatments.
1) Injectable Moisturisers (Profilho)
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occuring substance in our bodies which is responsible for lubricating joints and retaining moisture in the skin. Production of hyaluronic acid decreases as we age, resulting in a lack of hydration in our skin.
To combat this, cosmetic treatments like Profhilo inject hyaluronic acid-based moisturiser into the skin to improve skin hydration and elasticity. Non-invasive, safe, quick and painless, these injectable moisturisers stimulate your skin cells to restore firmness and help you regain that much desired youthful glow.
Profhilo treatments in Singapore are also able to trigger collagen production, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and make your skin appear less tired and dull. They are an effective way to slow down the visible signs of ageing and improve the health and quality of your skin.
2) Polynucleotide Injections (Rejuran)
An alternative to hyaluronic acid-based injectable moisturisers, Rejuran is a skin rejuvenation treatment that uses polynucleotides. Polynucleotides are DNA fragments and the ones used in Rejuran have been extracted from salmon DNA. First developed in South Korea, Rejuran is able to stimulate the production of key components of skin health like collagen, glycosaminoglycans and glycoproteins.

Rejuran treatments have shown efficacy in improving elasticity, hydration, skin tone, texture and skin repair. They can also be used to reduce the appearance of acne scars and other types of scarring. Similar to Profhilo, Rejuran treatments also require a series of injections which are safe and non-invasive.
3) Botox Treatment
Botox treatments have been used for decades to treat wrinkles and facial creases. They are highly effective and work by blocking signals from the nerve to the muscle. By blocking these signals, the muscles are unable to contract and remain in a relaxed state. This in turn can make wrinkles and facial lines look less obvious, especially for features like crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead wrinkles.
However, Botox in Singapore is a temporary treatment that lasts for around 3 to 6 months before requiring another session. Its popularity is largely due to how effective it can be at restoring youthful features, and how easy the procedure is. Botox typically only takes a few minutes to administer and has no significant downtime.
Botox may also have a preventive effect to slow down skin ageing. By partially paralysing the muscles in the face, it might have the potential to stop or delay the development of deep lines.
As we age, it can be harder and harder to maintain your skin health and prevent issues like sagging, wrinkles, and unhealthy, uneven looking skin. A holistic approach, combining the right lifestyle habits with aesthetic treatments recommended by a trusted medical professional may be the solution to help you defy the ageing process and remain youthful for decades to come.
