Age is really catching up with me lately (44 this year) and there’s nothing I can do to prevent it. I’m fully aware that aging is inevitable, so what I can do for myself now is to delay the aging process as much as I can.
One of my most obvious tell-tale signs of aging on my face is loss of skin firmness and sagging jawline. Although the best option is to go for a surgical facelift but there is too much risk involved and I’m not ready for it yet. Probably in another three to five years down the road I may consider it. Hence for now, the best alternative for me is to go for a non-invasive skin-tightening treatment – Thermage.
Are you new to Thermage? Well Thermage is a non-invasive skin-tightening procedure that can help smooth, tighten and contour our skin for an overall younger looking appearance in a single treatment without surgery or injections. It uses patented radio-frequency technology to safely heat the deeper layers of our skin, stimulating the existing collagen and promoting new collagen growth.
I opt for Thermage instead of other skin-tightening treatments such as Ulthera and Titan, as I personally feel more confident with it and it has researched to be the best option for skin tightening.
I actually have Thermage procedure done twice, first by Dr Valentin Low (Paragon) many years ago and last by Dr Calvin Chan (Wheelock) last year in November 2011. However both were big disappointments!
This round, I decided to get Thermage procedure done by Dr Chee from Chelsea Clinic (formally known as Wen & Weng Medical Group) as he’s using the latest Thermage CPT technology.
