We spoke with Dr Mendis from Mendis Aesthetics clinic in Singapore, on how to achieve glowing skin.
Tell us about Profhilo and why you recommend this treatment to achieve glowing skin?
Dr Mendis: Profhilo is a revolutionary hybrid complex of two different molecular weights of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) in high concentration. More specifically, the low molecular weight hyaluronic acid regenerates HA production and provides deep hydration to improve moisture levels within the skin. Meanwhile, high molecular weight HA tightens the skin by allowing volumetric replacement that helps lift the skin without altering the appearance of facial features.
Unlike other injectable skin treatments, the HA used in Profhilo is thermally cross-linked to form a type of molecule called Hybrid Cooperative Complex (HCC) which ‘bio-remodels’ the skin tissue, improving hydration and skin firmness through collagen production. This bio-remodelling also allows HAs of high and low molecular weight to link together, allowing them to release slowly and dissipate evenly under the skin.
I highly recommend it as an injectable, innovative technology that directly addresses skin laxity and signs of ageing that can be used use on the face, neck, decolletage and even the back of the hands delivering quite impressive results.
What exactly does it involve and how long does it last?
Dr Mendis: Profhilo intervenes with the ageing process by bio-stimulating collagen, elastin and adipose stem cell tissues that are lost through ageing. The bio-remodelling Profhilo treatment allows HAs of different molecular weights to distribute evenly under the skin, establishing that plump, youthful look clients want to achieve. Results usually last for around nine months.
Are there other treatments that can benefit patients to contribute to a flawless glow?
Dr Mendis: Yes. Our special Anti-ageing Hyaluronic Acid facial is both a fantastic and quite pampering treatment. However, it needs to be repeated on a monthly basis to sustain the effect.
How long have you been based in Singapore, and what is the main concern most of your patients come to see you about?
Dr Mendis:I was born and raised in Singapore, and have been based here my entire life. I have over 20 years’ experience in the field of advanced medical aesthetics. My focus is on helping people improve their quality of life. This not only means enhancing one’s natural beauty, it also means helping them find the best ways to maintain that beauty and stay healthy, vibrant, fresh, and confident.
Most of my clients are concerned with ageing skin and excess body fat, which our treatments are designed to address here at Mendis Aesthetics.
What is the best treatment for a toned stomach
Dr Mendis:The best treatment to achieve a toned look is by far Emsculpt Neo. It’s the best because it’s the world’s only body contouring treatment that combines fat breakdown and muscle building. Based on clinical studies, Emsculpt Neo treatments can result in a 25% muscle mass increase and 30% fat reduction over four 30-minute sessions.
Tell us about how this works and why it’s good?
Dr Mendis:Emscupt Neo uses patented HIFEM (High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic Waves) and synchronised RF (Radio Frequency Heating), resulting in simultaneous fat breakdown and muscle growth. More specifically, it combines what would otherwise require two stand-alone procedures, HIFEM and RF, needed to treat fat and muscle. Each 30-minute session for the abs/buttocks is equivalent to 24,000 crunches or squats, respectively.
Even better, the procedure has no side effects and requires no downtime, which allows the client to resume normal activities immediately after the treatment.
How long should clients use this treatment?
Dr Mendis:Clients should use Emscupt Neo until they achieve their desired body shape. Clinical studies have shown that Emsculpt Neo treatments result in irreversible fat death (apoptosis) and confirm that muscle gains last for at least six months after the treatment.
So, once a client has received Emsculpt Neo treatments, they can feel secure in the quality of their results and maintain their desired shape with regular exercise.
