Everyone needs a little help to look good every now and then. Now that we’ve become more accepting of aesthetic treatments (k-pop wave ~), invasive & non-invasive beauty treatments has bloomed in business with more women wanting to look like the next Yoona or Park Shin Hye.
Many women are choosing non-invasive treatments over invasive ones due to associated risks and long term effects of the latter. While non-invasive procedures are not completely risk-free, most of these procedures are painless, and pose a comparatively much smaller risk. The champion element of non-invasive procedures is the short amount of time needed for completion. This also means that you can get a quick fix during lunch break!
There is an ever growing range of treatment options available (new gen XXX, optimized laser treatments, Silicon insertion, etc…). A quick search using google of the beauty treatments available will leave you confused by the array of technical jargons despite being spoilt for choice.
We’ve listed some of the best treatments out there - broken down treatment processes for your understanding - and where you can get them done.
Fat Melting Treatments
Similar to liposuction, fat melting treatments serves to reduce the amount of fat in targeted areas of your body. Bid farewell to the unsightly muffin top or flabby arms, without losing inches at areas you want to keep voluminous.
Unlike liposuction, fat-melting treatments are non-invasive. Fat melting treatments often use ultrasound or lasers to break apart the fat cell structures in your body instead of surgically draining fats from your body. This also means that the procedure is significantly less risky and often little to no recovery time is required for this treatment. You can carry on with your normal routine the moment you step out of the clinic!
Some of these fat melting treatments also include a skin-tightening aspect, important as there can sometimes be unsightly residual loose skin after the fat melting treatment.
The result is an overall slimmer look at targeted areas, giving you the hour-glass figure you’ve always aspired to achieve, without going under the knife.

It is truly amazing the amount of difference our teeth can affect our appearance and confidence. Everyday habits can damage the appearance of your teeth, leaving them looking yellowish and unhealthy. If you’re a smoker or a coffee and/or tea addict, your teeth probably has this unsightly yellow tinge. No matter how hard (damaging to tooth enamel) or how long (may cause gum bleeding if you have sensitive gums) you brush your teeth, these stains are there to stay. With teeth whitening treatment, you no longer need to think twice about flashing that smile. Flash your killer smile with pearly white teeth and dazzle the world after you’ve gotten your teeth whitened.
Teeth whitening need not be done by a specialist, it can be done by a regular dentist as long as they offer this service. Alternatively, you can also make an appointment with more established aesthetic dental practices around town – undoubtedly, they would have a more in-depth expertise on such aesthetic dental treatments (at a greater cost too).

Non-Ablative Laser Skin Resurfacing
As the name suggests, laser skin resurfacing involves the use of lasers to give healthier, younger-looking skin. It can also be used to reduce the appearance of acne scars, and can even target the root sources of acne, by “stunning” some of the glands that produce facial oil and killing bacteria that causes it.
A common feature of non-invasive treatments, patients are able to resume their daily activities immediately after their treatment, it’s the same with non-ablative laser skin resurfacing. A huge difference from ablative treatments, which requires a much longer recovery time and may even result in unwanted pigmentation.
Other than requiring little to no recovery time, non-ablative laser skin resurfacing is also very safe, as the machines used are equipped with sensors to detect skin which has already been heated, aborting any excessive use of lasers.
