An Introduction to Non-Surgical Facelifts by a Singaporean Aesthetics Doctor
Whatsapp

youtube video preview

Thanks to rapid advancements in technology, there are now more options for less invasive methods to dial back the age on the face or achieve smooth and even complexion.

A facelift used to be achievable only via surgery by removing excess skin on the face to tighten loose and sagging skin. But today, not only there are minimally-invasive procedures, but there are also procedures that do not break the skin.

I am Dr K K Chew, medical director of NU•U Aesthetics & Wellness Clinic. In this video, I explain briefly some minimally-invasive and non-surgical options to achieve a youthful look.
