#1 Neogen Plasma
Neogen Plasma is renowned as a skin rejuvenating treatment that employs a unique nitrogen plasma technology to provide consistent, controlled rapid heating over treated areas, to stimulate collagen reproduction to regenerate and restore skin elasticity.
The pulses are completely customisable; at lower energy levels, the technology can improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, pore size, and stretch marks. At higher energy levels, Neogen Plasma is effective in improving the appearance of photo-damaged skin, acne scarring, deeper wrinkles and even skin pigmentation including melasma.
Sometimes a thin layer of numbing cream may be applied onto the patient’s skin to enhance his / her comfort level but most patients choose to forego this step as they find the procedure almost painless.
After treatment, the treated skin may appear a little flushed or red with a little dryness to be expected. But you can still reapply makeup immediately after treatment, without any disruption to regular activities.
#2 Light Lift
To achieve skin that looks younger and healthier (think plump, supple skin with a poreless finish), dermatologists love Light Lift for its ability to rebuild collagen and strengthen skin and tighten skin that has gone lax due to age and sun damage while minimising pores and smoothening wrinkles.
This treatment uses FDA-approved Coolview technology and is suitable for all skin types. This technology penetrates into the deeper layers of the skin to stimulate collagen to overhaul and repair skin, while regulating overactive oil glands.
Patients may opt to have numbing cream applied with many describing the treatment as a gradual buildup of ‘healing warmth’ as laser energy is delivered. Mild flushing of the skin is expected after the treatment but regular activities can be resumed immediately after treatment.

#3 Forever Young BBL
Think of this as a step up from the traditional IPL (Intense Pulse Light), Broadband Light (BBL) uses short blasts of high-intensity light to produce younger-looking skin that’s firmer and more even in tone and texture. Not only does skin look younger, skin is also programmed to be younger.
Popular among many patients for the results it offers, this treatment rejuvenates skin and restores it to its youthful glow while shrinking pores. Many patients have reported brighter, more luminous skin after this treatment. Treatment is very comfortable without any downtime.
