Aesthetic treatments have long been popular among Malaysian women but recently men have also started showing interest in these treatments. Looking good can help you feel good. Minor enhancements in your looks can give a major boost to your confidence. Most people experience a significant increase in self-esteem immediately after receiving an aesthetic treatment.
While surgery can deliver long-lasting drastic changes, people these days are more comfortable with non-invassive, less painful treatment options that give subtle results. Currently, drastic changes are being frowned upon and people are looking for more gradual and natural-looking transformations. Men and women are more comfortable with quick, and less invasive treatments. Botox, fillers, laser hair removal, Korean thread lift, HIFU facelift, and whitening drips are the most in-demand aesthetic treatments not only in Johar Bahru but around Malaysia.
1- Botox and Fillers
Botox and fillers are both aesthetic injectables however they are very different in intent. While derma fillers effectively inject soft tissues under your skin to lift giving your face a fuller look and decreasing the appearance of wrinkles.
On the other hand, botox does not reduce the already formed wrinkles. It simply injects a toxin under your skin that paralyzes the muscles responsible for pulling the skin to form facial expressions. Since frequent use of these muscles to pull on the skin causes wrinkles, paralyzing these muscles temporarily will delay the formation of wrinkles.
So botox is a preventive measure against wrinkle formations while derma fillers reduce the appearance of already formed wrinkles. Both of these anti-wrinkle treatments are popular among professionals and frequently endorsed by influencers. This is why they are one of the most in-demand aesthetic treatments.
2 – Laser Hair Removal Treatment
In most parts of the world, body hair is seen as unappealing and repulsive but managing body hair is considered basic hygiene in Malaysia. This is more true for women than men. Since laser hair removal is the quickest, easiest, and painless way of getting rid of the unwanted body hair it is high in demand. The demand for hair removal especially increases around the holiday season, in summers, and on special occasions like Valentine’s day.
Laser hair removal works when the pulsating waves of laser precisely target the hair follicle under your skin and heat from the laser destroys the hair follicle. This penetrative treatment has a skin-deep action that delivers long-term results, hence it is commonly referred to as “permenant hair removal”. The laser can be very precise in targeting the hair follicle due to dark hair pigment sensitivity and therefore does not damages the surrounding skin cells.
3 – Anti-Aging Korean Thread Lift
It is the secret behind many never-aging beautiful actresses and celebrities. This is a mildly invasive facelift treatment also referred to as one stitch surgery. The doctor will insert multiple biodegradable threads under your skin to effectively lift your facial skin by tightening it and pulling up the soft tissue under the skin. The procedure is performed after administrating local anesthesia and you will be prescribed pain-relieving medicine for later.
It is a middle ground between invassive surgical procedures and non-invasive facelifts. The results of the Korean thread lift are not permanent but will last for somewhere between 18 months to two years. This procedure is most suited for people in their forties and fifties experiencing mild to moderate sagging of skin. This will make facial features more defined and countered.
4 – Anti Aging HIFU Facelift
This is a modern non-invasive facelift procedure that is gaining more and more attention in the media as celebrities talk about its benefits and fascinating results. This non-surgical facelift uses High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) waves, that penetrate deep into the skin layers and triggers the production of collagen. Our body naturally produces collagen that triggers the productions of new soft tissues and skin cells leading to skin rejuvenation.
Collagen is so popular these days that many people are consuming collagen for better health, stronger bones, and a youthful look.
When HIFU penetrates skin layers and stimulates the production of collagen it replicates skin rejuvenation methods naturally by new skin cells replacing dead cells. It also encourages the production of soft tissues, lifting skin, diminishing fine lines and wrinkles, creating a fuller youthful face.
5- Whitening Drips
Whitening drips are the safest skin lightening treatment that is getting a lot of attention in Malaysia. Generally, Asian people have been found of a lighter skin tone. Many celebrities have gone to great lengths to achieve lighter skin, but now they all sever by whitening drips. These drips are loaded with nutrients like minerals and several vitamins, giving you healthier looking fresh, and glowing skin. Key active ingredients of these drips are Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) and Glutathione.
Vitamin C is well known for its skin lightening properties but our bodies can not produce it naturally, so we have to consume it from citrus fruits. Our body naturally produces Glutathione and it helps boost immunity. The decrease in the production of Glutathione can increase the rate of cellular death and decrease cellular turnover, which means more cells are dying and fewer healthy cells are being produced to replace them. This impacts our entire body, but for our skin, it means signs of aging, a dull complexion, and dark spots.
Glutathione has other benefits too such as increased metabolism, more energy, and better sleep.
While these treatments are safe and can be done in clinical settings, it is very important to choose a doctor who is certified and experienced in the treatments you are interested in.
