What is it?

Whole Body Cryotherapy is the act of immersing your body in a chamber at an extremely cold temperature of approximately minus 89 degree celsius. This freezing temperature forces your body into survival mode, redirecting blood flow from the extremities to the core. Once you’re out of the chamber, a rebound occurs, and blood resumes its normal flow as the body gradually warms up. This re-circulation therapy delivers ultra-nutrient rich blood to your muscles and joints, enhancing your body’s overall wellbeing. This treatment is particularly effective in helping numerous issues such as weight loss, pain, and inflammation of body, aging as well as mental wellness, all of which are supported by scientific research.

What are the benefits?

Whole Body Cryotherapy helps to soothe aches and pains in joints as well as treating of muscle soreness, promoting pain relief and muscle healing. With just three minutes in the chamber, you also burn 1,500 calories! It helps jump-start your metabolic rate and stimulates the production of Brown Fat, a type of tissue that is used to regulate the temperature within the body. Mitochondria within the brown fat uses fat cells as energy and burns them up, which in turn burns up calories and generates heat.

Another benefit of Whole Body Cryotherapy is that it helps slows down the aging process. It helps tightens skin tissues while improving circulation as blood rushes to your core. What’s more, the ultra-cold temperatures causes physiological hormonal responses in your body that includes the release of endorphins which has a positive effect on anxiety, depression, and insomnia. The release of endorphins results in an energy boost followed by a state of relaxation! Whole Body Cryotherapy has also been known to improve irritated and sensitive skin conditions. It is also effective in reducing eczema skin conditions.

Price: Whole Body Cryotherapy Trial Per Session S$128*

What is it?

Fotona Tightsculpting is a non-invasive, non-surgical body sculpting procedure that uses dual-wavelength laser pulses to eliminate excess fat tissues. Not only does it reduce the volume of fat deposits, but it is also effective for tightening loose, baggy skin over the treated area. This procedure is done in two steps. Firstly, using Fotona’s proprietary PIANO® pulse mode, laser pulses are directed towards the treated area in a calibrated manner. This simultaneously helps to heat up the connective tissues and reduce fat cells in the area, in a process called hyperthermic adipocyte destruction. Secondly, Fotona’s SMOOTH® mode is used to tighten the superficial layers of skin at the treated area in a non-ablative manner. This concurrently tightens the collagen fibres in your skin while stimulating the natural production of collagen. As a result, Fotona Tightsculpting reduces signs of loose, baggy skin through extensive collagen remodelling.

What are the benefits?

Fotona Tightsculpting provides the means to achieve true body fat reduction and cellulite reduction. Stretch marks and loose skin will be reduced, thus rejuvenating the overall look and feel of your complexion. Depending on the treatment area and the set of desired outcomes, one session can be 30 minutes or longer. Tightsculpting can be done across multiple sessions which makes it easy to slot into your busy schedule.

If you’re afraid that tightsculpting might hurt or have unintended side effects, fear not, as through rigorous clinical studies and the implementation of multiple safeguards, Dr D Aesthetics Medical Clinic assures that the procedure is safe and virtually painless. The laser pulses will just be felt as warm, comfortable sensations on the skin.

Price: From S$1500 onwards per session

What is it?

Profhilo® is a 100% pure HA-based, chemical stabiliser-free product used to treat aging and sagging skin. It is different from all other typical skin fillers and skin boosters as it acts via a new process which is bio-remodelling of the collagen and elastin structures in the skin. How does it biomodel the collagen? The high concentration of HA in Profhilo® stimulates fibroblast cells to increase natural collagen and elastin production in the skin. As well, the HA complexes present in Profhilo® directly provides structure to the skin via a volumetric effect to help reduce sagging. Hydration is also improved therefore preventing your skin from drying out and thus maintaining its elasticity.

Profhilo® comes in individual pre-filled 2ml syringes. Unlike traditional injection techniques, 0.2ml of Profhilo® is carefully injected into several specifically selected Bio Aesthetic Points (BAPs) on each side of the patient’s face. By administering Profhilo® through only 10 key points on the face, this minimises risks to blood vessels and nerves while maximising efficacy through diffusion.

What are the benefits?

Profhilo® has multiple benefits as it combines the effects of different types of HA-based treatments. After being injected into the skin, Profhilo® naturally distributes itself across multiple layers of the skin. This helps in improving skin laxity and hydration from the inside out, giving you a more youthful look. It also stimulates tissue repair processes, which can help in the repair of acne scars. Unlike most other products on the market, Profhilo® is longer lasting and has no downtime post-treatment. It is by far one of the safest amongst similar procedures with its biocompatible design.
