FACELIFT / CHINLIFT
The Cynosure-manufactured Affirm™ procedure is a very effective method of tightening the skin of the face, jaw line, chin, neck, and other body areas. The skin is treated with two special wavelengths of light and is aesthetically comfortable. Treatment can be completed in about 15-30 minutes with minimal downtime.
The Affirm™ laser utilizes the newest fractional laser technology to deliver total skin rejuvenation. It is now proving to be the gold standard in the cosmetic laser dermatology market. We are able to help our patients reduce wrinkles, treat scars, and improve overall skin texture, pigmentation, and redness with virtually no downtime. It is so advanced that we can now offer our patients a complete skin rejuvenation solution that is better and faster than anything else available.
This remarkable technology allows you to walk out of the treatment session with skin that looks younger, feels smoother, and is tighter than they ever thought possible.
Benefits of Affirm:
- The very latest in fractional laser technology
- Treatment is much more comfortable than other fractional lasers such as Fraxel
- Improvement in acne scars and fine wrinkles
- Visible tightening of the skin of the face, neck and jawline
- Minimal down time
- Great-looking skin
Lengthy down time is avoided unlike that of more ablative peels and laser treatments. Our Affirm laser employs micro-pulses of light that stimulate and remodel the skins own natural collagen production, rapidly stimulating the body’s natural healing responses. MultiPlex technology enables the sequential emission of two wavelengths in one pulse from the same delivery system. Since lower individual energy levels can now be used during treatments, discomfort is minimized and recovery is accelerated–for faster, more effective results compared to single-wavelength technologies.
The laser can perforate fibrous scar tissue, enabling deposition of new collagen and lifting depressions (scars and wrinkles) from the bottom up while the tissue heating causes tissues to contract, resulting in a softer, smoother, and firmer looking skin.
We recommend an initial series of 3-6 treatments spaced around 3 weeks apart. Following the series of initial treatments, you are advised to return for treatments 2-4 times a year–quarterly is preferred–to maintain the results and keep the collagen in a regenerative state of flux, favoring collagen generation and preservation. You will see immediate improvement in surface skin texture, tone, and pigmentation.
It’s effective in reducing wrinkles, acne scars, and large pores. Further treatments stimulate collagen dramatically, promoting additional improvement in skin tone.
Our Plastic Surgeon performs surgical face and neck lifts in Singapore at an accredited ambulatory surgery centre. As with all surgery, these carry the associated benefits and risks that will need to be fully discussed as part of the consultation.
