Ultimate List Of Effective Aesthetic Treatment And Costs In Singapore (2018)

Posted on 29 Jan 2018

Aesthetic procedures are very popular in Singapore, which is why lots of beauty salons have jumped on the bandwagon. If you’re considering some form of aesthetic treatment, I hope that you first take some time to find out which procedures actually work, and which don’t!

The second consideration is that an aesthetic procedure may be offered at such a low-powered setting that it's practically ineffective (or worse yet, make use of a harmful imitation product, as this Straits Times report on fake Thermage machines highlighted).

When there are a dozen different lasers available in Singapore with wide-ranging prices, it’s confusing even for myself as a doctor, let alone the average Singaporean.

To help everyone, I've done a search of all non-surgical aesthetic procedures offered in Singapore, and cross-referenced them against various studies and SMC 2016 guidelines to find out which treatments are proven to work (ie based on evidence).

This has been compiled into the table below with a price range for your easy reference.

(You can send a free enquiry at the end to get a more accurate range of treatment price quotes directly from trusted doctors in Singapore).

Disclaimer: I’m not affiliated to any aesthetic clinic. Prices are compiled from clinics with published online price lists - extreme outliers are excluded.

  • If you can’t find a particular aesthetic treatment in the table, try asking the aesthetic clinic in your enquiry what type of treatment it is, according to the left most column (more often than not, it’s just the clinic calling the same treatment by a different name).
  • All the aesthetic procedures in the table are SMC-regulated, which means they can only be carried out by doctors.
