OUR SKIN - Our Window to the World...
To most people, our skin equates to beauty. Yet healthy skin is more than that as it protects us from germs and the environment and allows us to experience the sensations of pain, temperature, pressure and touch. As with other organs in our body, age, disease and the environment takes its toll. Common problems include age lines and wrinkles, saggy skin, pigmentation and scars from acne.
At Precious Aesthetics, we can help you look the best that you can be through a series of simple, non-invasive measures sure as skin boosters, fillers and other injectables like Botox. We also have available several ultrasound, radio-frequency, laser and light-based equipment which can help remove pigmentation and improve skin tone and texture.
For those who prefer more instant and aggressive management, our accredited plastic surgeons can perform face-lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction and even fat transfers or implants for breast augmentation. Speak to our team for a solution which best fits your needs and demands. Let us help you look the best that you can be and bring our the beauty in you.
1. LASER & LIGHT BASED TREATMENTS
Sciton BBL (BroadBand Light) is a form of intense pulse light therapy (IPL) that is used to improve the appearance of skin with scars, excessive pigments or sun-damage. It works by using light as an energy source to stimulate the collagen and elastin fibers in skin, which in turn reduces fine lines and wrinkles, brown spots and freckles giving visibly smoother skin texture, and a more even skin tone.
It is suitable for patients of all ages including younger patients who do not have damaged skin, or older patients who may not need corrective treatment but desire to maintain healthy skin and delay skin aging. It can also be used as a maintenance regime for patients who have had laser treatment previously for damaged skin.
BBL allows targeted treatment for pigmentation, age-spots and sun-spots. The treated sun-spots will start to darken right away, and over the following days will begin to slough off to reveal clear new skin underneath.
Also known as telengiectasia are small dilated blood vessels that occur close to the surface of the skin – usually on the face, around the nose, cheeks and chin. Sciton BBL can be used to remove these tiny dilated or broken blood vessels.
Skin Rejuvenation for aged skin
Forever Young BBL™ - in addition to effectively correcting aged or damaged skin, vascular and pigmented lesions, scars and acne, the benefits of BBL can be expanded to include maintaining healthy skin and delaying the signs of skin aging. .
The trademarked Forever Bare™ treatment sends multiple lower fluence pulses at a high repetition rate, resulting in a highly effective, safe and comfortable hair-removal treatment. Useful for Legs, Armpits, Bikini and the famed “Brazilian treatment”
WHAT IS THE PROCESS?
Think of Sciton BBL as a machine-based skin peel. With an average treatment time of 12-15 minutes for a full face, along with little or no downtime, patients can resume normal activities immediately. There may be a mild sensation during the treatment, akin to rubber bands snapping along the skin, although most patients tend not to experience any discomfort at all.
Studies have shown significant age-delaying benefits and optimal results are achieved with just 4 sessions a year. With proper post-treatment care, the results have been shown to be long-lasting and the treatment can be used on all body areas. Discoloured areas that have been removed do not recur. However, these treatments cannot prevent future sun damage from occurring so it’s imperative to use sunscreen regularly to protect your skin from future sun damage.
Fraxel® Dual Laser System is a non-invasive fractional laser treatment that uses light energy to promote collagen production. It does not cut through but gently passes through outer skin layers to deliver its effect in a controlled manner to precise microscopic areas known as microthermal treatment zones (MTZs) without affecting overlying areas. As a result, healing is faster and the recovery period shorter compared to traditional laser resurfacing.
Whole Face Rejuvenation (for fine lines and wrinkles)
Works by stimulating the skin’s natural wound-healing response, repairing and rejuvenating skin and reducing laxity.
Pigmentation (such as Melasma)
It minimizes age spots, sun spots, skin discoloration and lesions, resulting in less blotchy and pigmented skin which looks clearer, younger and fresher.
Acne Scars and Surface Scarring
Acne and other skin scarring is reduced through the stimulation of natural collagen in the skin, leading to an improvement of skin texture and smoother skin over time.
WHAT IS THE PROCESS?
Doctors will usually recommend multiple sessions (3-5), usually space four weeks apart, to achieve the best results. While there is no real downtime, patients may experience the following after the treatment: redness, swelling, peeling and a slight “sunburnt” look
Post-treatment, patients will be advised to moisturise liberally to hydrate the skin and encourage the healing process. They can use a product they already own, or, if they do not have a suitable moisturiser, we can also recommend them a specific product for post treatment from the range we carry. Patients are also advised to use sunblock to minimise the chances of post-inflammatory pigmentation. They may also use mineral based concealers and/or makeup on D2 post-treatment if desired.
WHY CHOOSE FRAXEL?
Fraxel ® Dual Laser System unique use of two different laser wavelengths allow doctors to tailor treatments individually.
Fraxel 1550nm wavelength erbium laser is used when deeper treatment is required, in significant lack of skin tone; skin resurfacing procedures; more extensive age spots, melasma, acne and surgical scars.
Fraxel 1927nm wavelength thulium laser is used for more superficial skin laxity, treatment of mild sun damage and pigmented lesions, specifically age spots, sun spots, and freckles.
2. RADIOFREQUENCY SKIN RESURFACING
WHAT IS VENUS VIVA NANOFRACTIONAL RF™ RESURFACING?

Patented Technology NanoFractional™
Radio Frequency is delivered via a patented tip technology that creates micro-wounds in the skin to activate the natural wound healing process leading collagen remodelling as well as formation of new collagen. As the surrounding skin is intact, it serves as a reservoir for stem cells and relevant proteins leading to faster healing and less downtime.
WHY CHOOSE VENUS VIVA NANOFRACTIONAL RF™?
Venus skin resurfacing treatment is quick, almost painless and can be performed on tanned skin and darker skin tones without the risk of post-inflammatory pigmentation. Its Nano Fractional technology creates only microscopic wounds which heal more quickly leading to less downtime than other fractional resurfacing treatments.

This solution can also be added to other peel solutions to increase their effectiveness on scars and pigmentation.
Suitable for all skin tones including darker skin.
MANDELIC ACID PEEL
Mandelic acid, a natural chemical peeling agent, is used to accelerate cell turnover. This helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, dark patches, acne blemishes, and other common skin concerns. Compared to chemical peels containing salicylic, glycolic or lactic acids, mandelic acid is lower in strength but produces longer-lasting effects. Its gentle peeling effect is due to its molecular structure which being larger than other active ingredients is less likely to cause irritation. Suitable for all skin types
4. CLINICAL FACIALS
Clinical or medical facials are treatments that use ingredients, products and technologies available only in clinics. Typically, a higher concentration of active ingredients and different technologies when compared to spas and salons. These treatments are usually carried out by a trained therapist who will recommend customised solutions based on your individual skin type, skin goals and lifestyle.
