Happy New Year. Happy New You.
“Out with the old, in with the new”.
With the start of the new year, it’s not uncommon to make new year resolutions, in hopes of bettering one’s own life or self.
But don’t we all agree they can be pretty hard to stick to? According to this statistic, 80% of us will fail by the second week of February. No doubt, new year resolutions are tricky things to do at any time of the year, let alone in the month right after the holidays.

In a study, led by Kaitlin Woolley from Cornell University and Ayelet Fishbach from the University of Chicago, they found that participants believe that both enjoyment and importance are important factors in determining whether they stick to their resolutions or not.
In fact, the researchers found that in the end, it was just the enjoyment factor that mattered, ie if the participants were getting immediate rewards from their new habits, they were more likely to stick to them. If a new you is top on your resolutions list, we’ve curated a list of beauty treatments that can give you almost instant results, which you’ll be happy to stick with for the rest of the year.
As we age, we notice the shape and balance of our facial tissues aren’t quite what they used to be; skin appears more saggy and facial contours aren’t as defined as before. To restore a more youthful appearance, Infinity Instalift, a system of threadlifts (also known as non-surgical facelift) which was designed specifically for the face and the neck, addresses these concerns. Infinity Instalift designed by SW1 Clinic can help to create a scaffolding to support weakened tissues and restoring them to their defined “V-shape”. It can also help to lift the tissues and reposition the skin in a more youthful manner, and sculpt and redefine blunted facial features such as droopy cheeks.
These facial threadlifts are specially customized to your face to help you achieve a natural look that is long-lasting.
The Infinity threads used in this procedure dissolve naturally in your body over the next few months, whilst stimulating a matrix of supporting collagen to take its place, so what you have in the end is a ‘natural’ facelift.
The best part of this procedure is that you can see instant lifting which improves in the next few months, as your skin’s natural collagen production kicks in.
If you’re looking for a shortcut to fitting into your clothes again, Onda Body Magic might be what you’re after. This is a well-established and non-invasive fat-busting treatment that uses patented CoolwavesTM technology to melt and dissolve stubborn deposits of fat.
The Onda Body Magic is the only device of its kind that multi-tasks to work on different depths of body skin to effect fat reduction as well as skin tightening for an all-round body sculpting benefit. This procedure is suitable for those who are already close to their ideal shape but would like to sculpt or smoothen select stubborn areas to make everything a little more perfect.
Patients who have undergone this procedure have been reported seeing visible results after just a single session, with full results more commonly seen after a series of 4 to 6 treatments, or 6 to 8 treatments (for those seeking treatments for larger or more problematic areas). Treatments can be done weekly and there is no downtime, resuming regular activities after this treatment.
For those concerned with hair loss, and thinning hair (and this could be a concern for both men and women), you might want to consider Revitascalp, a no-pain, 40-minute procedure that aims to boost scalp health. This is a very comfortable procedure, without the use of needles or injections, with no downtime involved.
A targeted blast of scientifically selected nutrients to help support a healthy growth of hair, including vitamin B12, folic acid, protein-building amino acids and clinically proven minoxidil to help inhibit the production of hair-hindering DHT, and boost your chances of retarding any ‘hair-zards’ in the future.

Patients have noticed a reduction in hair loss soon after treatment. However, since your hair follicles takes time to grow, it is normal that you will only see visible hair thickening or hair growth after 6-12 weeks. This procedure is best done weekly for severe cases of hair thinning, or fortnightly for those with mild to moderate cases of hair thinning.
