The Fraxel treatment is a non-invasive fractional laser treatment that provides a wide range of treatment options to address different skin problems like signs of aging (age spots, fine lines, wrinkles, visible photoaging, sagging skin), skin pigmentation (melasma, brown spots, birthmarks), scars (acne, postsurgical, post traumatic), actinic keratosis and stretch marks. It is also used to improve skin tightening and texture and to rejuvenate the skin of the neck, chest and hands. It is useful to improve loose skin and wrinkles around the eyes.
Laser biostimulation using lasers at 650nm and 670nm wavelengths can increase nutrient transport and cellular ATP production of cells in the scalp. This results in increased protein production, intracellular nutrient acquisition and cell proliferation. This process ultimately leads to a decrease in DHT-dependent disruption of follicular protein and nutrient loss and to the maintenance of healthy scalp hair.
Liposonix HIFU treatment is a non-invasive procedure that is FDA cleared to effectively reduce fat in problem areas of the body. It utilizes non-invasive, high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) to permanently destroy fat usually in the anterior abdomen and flanks (love handles) without surgery. This results in a thinner and more contoured waistline.
There are many ways to remove unwanted hairs from the face and body. Among these are shaving, using depilatory creams, waxing, threading, tweezing, plucking and electrolysis. A more permanent method to remove unwanted hairs is to use light energy either in the form of intense pulse light (IPL) or laser light. These two methods provide long term results, which offer periods of up to 6 weeks between visible hair growth and a permanent reduction in the amount of hair re-growth.

The Omnilux lamp uses a matrix of light emitting diodes (LEDs) that deliver narrowband light at a specific wavelength. Omnilux Blue LED and Onmilux Red LED treat acne by killing bacteria; Omnilux Revive boosts collagen and elastin production; and Omnilux Plus uses a longer wavelength to help rebuild and tighten skin tissue.

Photorejuvenation is a non-ablative skin rejuvenation treatment using pulses of intense light or laser light energy to simultaneously repair collagen in the dermis while erasing signs of aging in the epidermis. It improves facial redness, flushing, fine vessels, pigment problems and sun damage. At the same time new collagen growth is stimulated to improve skin texture, increase skin smoothness and reduce pore size. It is also known as “photofacial” or skin rejuvenation.

Plasma skin regeneration is the first and only treatment clinically proven to regenerate skin. The unique energy-transferring mechanism initiates regeneration deep below the skin’s surface, remodelling the skin’s architecture and creating dramatic results that improve over time as the new architecture progressively replaces the old. This treatment allows for the benefits of traditional laser peels without the risks or downtime.
Skin resurfacing as the name suggest is a treatment to erase skin imperfections, smooth skin irregularities and tighten skin. Skin resurfacing is a controlled injury to your skin. When your skin heals, the “imperfect “skin is replaced with a better skin. There are several modalities that Dr Joyce Lim uses to resurface the skin. Among the skin resurfacing treatments are the Chemical peels, the Fraxel lasers, the vascular laser (V beam perfecta), the Genesis laser and infrared light (STAR and skintyte treatments) and radiofrequency. The choice of treatments will depend on the skin problems and the depth of the skin irregularities.

» Chemical Peels
A chemical peel is a treatment where a peeling agent is applied to the skin with the aim to remove parts of the skin (and any defects) and in the process to allow new skin to grow and replace the old skin. It is a form of accelerated skin exfoliation. It is also used to remove comedones within the skin
» Cosmelan Depigmentation Treatment
The cosmelan depigmentation treatment is a two part treatment. The initial treatment is done in the clinic by Dr Joyce Lim, called the cosmelan cream mask. You will leave this mask on for a specific number of hours (usually between 6-10 hours) before removing it at home. Then you will continue with the home treatment.
The STAR Treatment is an innovative combination of Skin Tightening and Rejuvenation (STAR). It combines two treatment procedures – the Broadband Light (BBL) photorejuvenation and the SkinTyte Infrared skin tightening technology to effectively address the full spectrum of skin conditions associated with aging, active lifestyle and skin damage.
» BBL Skin Rejuvenation
BBL Photorejuvenation uses a broad band light (BBL) to rejuvenate skin. The BBL broadband light energy allows Dr Joyce Lim to precisely target and eliminate unwanted melanin responsible for pigmented lesions and many of the fine vessels that cause redness. The BBL light energy will also gently heat up the upper layers of your skin thereby stimulating your skin cells to generate new collagen, giving your rejuvenated skin a smoother and more vibrant glow.
» SkinTyte Skin Tightening
The SkinTyte Skin Tightneing Treatment utilizes advanced infrared light technology, and patient tailored filters to deeply heat dermal collagen while continuously protecting the entire treated area with sapphire contact cooling for optimal clinical endpoints, safety and comfort. Targeted heating causes soft tissue coagulation and deep tissue heating. This process initiates the body’s natural healing process, leading to firmer and more youthful skin. The full effect of skin firming treatments can be seen over several subsequent months.
About 20%- 30% of people who had tattoos regret having them, especially when the tattoos were done during their teens or early twenties. Sometimes people removed them for religious reasons or when they apply for jobs where the presence of tattoos will be a disadvantage. Some people just grew tired of their tattoos or their tattoos have become an embarrassment or have become irrelevant (removing tattoos professing love for a previous partner)
» Q-Switched MedLite Laser For Tattoo Removal
The Medlite Laser is a Q-Switched Nd-YAG laser and it is the laser of choice by Dr Joyce Lim to remove tattoos. It can significantly lighten or remove a wide variety of tattoo inks. The MedLite Laser removes tattoo ink with the energy of light. The laser light passes into the skin and this light is absorbed by the tattoo ink. The light scatters the relevant inks into tiny fragments and these are removed by the body’s immune response. The MedLite Laser provides maximum tattoo removal while leaving the surrounding skin unharmed.

There are two types of wrinkles – static wrinkles and dynamic wrinkles. Static wrinkles are the fine lines, creases and folds that you see on the skin at rest and they are due to loss of skin collagen, elastin and hyaloruonic acid that give support and volume to the skin. This loss of skin structure is compounded by age, environment and gravitational effects. Static wrinkles are commonly seen with age and sun damage.
Dynamic wrinkles are created by muscle movements and initially you see them when you animate or work those muscles as when you talk, laugh, smile, frown or cry. Later with time, the skin loses volume and elasticity and the dynamic wrinkles, through repetition, become etched in the skin to form static wrinkles. They remain even when there are no muscle movements.
» Botulinium Neurotoxin
Botulinum neurotoxin is essentially a sterile, natural, purified protein that when injected into muscles in small doses can relax these muscles. This neurotoxin blocks the release of acetylcholine, a chemical in the junction between the ends of the nerves and the muscles, and when acetylcholine is blocked the injected muscles relaxed. It is thus not acting as a poison/ toxin as the name suggested
