The latest trend in aesthetic treatments for couples: beauty matching
Aesthetic treatments certainly have come a long way since the 90s and it may seem it’s only the women paying attention to the range of treatments available. However men nowadays are just as keen to try out procedures to keep them looking their best and slow the downward spiral to wrinkles and uneven skin tone.
In fact it’s not uncommon for couples to seek out aesthetic treatments together and there’s even a term for it – beauty matching, where couples get the same aesthetic treatments done together. Couples don’t just want to grow old together, they want to age well together too. Other reasons could be they’re both attending a major event together and are keen to look as good as the other for the occasion.
We speak to Dr Low Chai Ling, founder and medical director of SW1 Clinic what are the popular treatments that couples come to see her for.
#1 Dermal fillers
Dermal fillers have always been a popular treatment. Beyond creating plumper lips, they’re very good for erasing fine lines and wrinkles, and reducing the appearance of dark undereye circles. By using the right type of fillers (and in the right hands, fillers can help you look younger and more refreshed.
As we get on in years, it’s not just the lines and wrinkles that give our age away. Sagging and loose skin affects our facial contours. For those not interested in surgeries or long recovery time, threadlifts are perfect for the couple who would like to restore definition in their facial features all in under an hour.
The Infinity Instalift uses a series of threads customised for your face to create results that are not only naturally looking but also long lasting. Be it to shape the lower face, reduce lines and wrinkles, elevate the brow and nose or even to lift and firm saggy necklines, the Infinity Instalift is versatile enough to meet the needs of every individual.
#3 The Skinny Jab
Not exactly a treatment per se as The Skinny Jab requires you to inject yourself daily from your own home but it is something couples are doing together as they embark on their weight loss goals as a team.
Besides dieting and frequent workout sessions, we sometimes need a little extra push in the form of an appetite suppressant to regulate hunger. The Skinny Jab mimics a hormone known as glucagon-like-peptide (GLP-1) that helps to regulate your hunger. This helps to reduce your calorie consumption and improve your chances to lose weight effectively and quickly.
