SW1 Clinic (SW1) is blazing a new trail for the aesthetics industry, with its collaborative model of beauty and medicine. Operating as a “global wellness village”, SW1 defies the conventions – and limitations – of the usual boutique or solo aesthetic practices. Consultations begin with access to a team of aesthetic doctors and plastic surgeons bringing together their collective expertise, an approach which gives patients full creative freedom to discover beauty treatments and services best suited to their needs – a first in Asia.
Founded by Dr Low who left The Sloane Clinic in 2017 to start SW1, SW1 is a sprawling 7,000 square-foot space centrally located at Paragon Medical Centre along Orchard Road, Singapore. Offering the best of both worlds, SW1 offers a comprehensive suite of services from aesthetic to cosmetic & reconstructive surgery. Boasting over 23 intelligently designed treatment rooms and a state-of-the-art MOH accredited day surgery centre, SW1 is the flagship of Singapore Medical Group’s aesthetic arm.
Ageing Changes of the Eye area
Both intrinsic and extrinsic aging processes contribute to aesthetic changes. One area of concern has largely escaped attention due to the lack of effective yet safe technology --- the eye area. Advances in the understanding of skin biology in this area have led to the development of a number of technologies for rejuvenating the peri-orbital skin. To address the aesthetic issues of the peri-orbital region for patients who did not want to undergo more invasive therapies, SW1 Clinic launched a HIFU-based eye lifting facial called Golden Eye in December 2017. According to Dr Low Chai Ling, Golden Eye was incredibly well-received by patients. “For patients who shun injections or surgery, Golden Eye is a comfortable option to address sagging of the skin in the eye area” she said.
Golden Eye wins Best Firming Eye Treatment Award 2018
This month (April 2018), as a testament to their popularity, Golden Eye won the Women’s Weekly award for Best Firming Eye treatment. “We are happy to have received this award for Golden Eye treatment. It represents a validation of the efforts put in by the team who have come up with and designed this therapy with our patients’ interests in mind” said Dr Low.
Utilizing the gold standard technology of Sygma Lift’s patented HIFU, Golden Eye is designed to target the signs of ageing of peri-orbital skin as well as prevent future deterioration. Suited for tired, sagging eyes in need of a quick pick-me-up or for general upkeep of the eye area, Golden Eye is a 30-minute facial for the eye that will refresh, rejuvenate and revitalize the eye area, promoting fresher, younger-looking skin.
Recently, HIFU treatment has received proper medical attention as a 'high-tech' way to improve wrinkles and skin laxity(1,2,3). This technique combines direct ultrasound visualization of targeted tissue with the noninvasive delivery of focused ultrasound energy. Precise microcoagulation zones from the deep dermis to the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (SMAS) have been demonstrated. These zones cause gradual tightening of the skin through collagen contraction and remodeling(4).
Recent studies (2) reported clinical and histopathologic changes after HIFU treatment, and suggested that HIFU was a safe, effective, and noninvasive procedure that can be used to tighten the facial skin of Asian people.
A firm believer in preventive medicine, Dr Low feels that investing in one skin is as important as treating existing concerns. That is why Golden Eye treatments occupy a space that may offer patients the benefits of scientific aesthetic technology but with the comforts of a spa experience.
Golden Eye (30 min) is now available at SW1 Clinic at S$267.50. More information on Golden Eye can be found at http://www.SW1spa.com.
