You may have never heard of an aesthetic clinic. Or, you may have heard of aesthetic clinics but aren’t exactly sure what they do. Perhaps, your friends have told you about their experience at an aesthetic clinic, and you’re excited. If you fit into any of the above categories, this guide is for you.
An aesthetic clinic is a clinic where a qualified and trained aesthetic doctor performs cosmetic procedures on their patients. Just like how a dentist can treat your teeth and dermatologists can treat your skin, an aesthetic doctor can help you look better. Through a large variety of treatments that an aesthetic clinic offers, your face, body and hair can be made to look more youthful and more beautiful.
Unlike a plastic surgeon, who performs surgery make a patient look better, an aesthetic doctor typically performs minimally invasive procedures — those that do not involve going under the knife. These procedures are gaining popularity among Singaporeans because they require almost no downtime at all. Each procedure can usually be done within the span of a few hours, and patients can usually resume their everyday lives very soon after leaving the clinic.
EHA Clinic, one of Singapore’s leading aesthetic clinics, is proud to be helmed by Dr Elias Tam, who has over 20 years of experience with aesthetic medicine. Patients of EHA Clinic can be assured that their cosmetic procedures are performed by a top-notch doctor.
Here are 3 reasons why you should consider visiting an aesthetic clinic for a cosmetic procedure.
Enhancing your beauty
In just a few hours, you can quite literally transform yourself. Frown line and wrinkles can be erased, depressed areas and sagging skin filled and tightened and unwanted body fat and hair can be removed.
Looking better often translates to feeling better, too. Going for an aesthetic procedure may give a huge boost to one’s self-confidence, especially if the patient is pleased with the outcome of the procedure. At EHA Clinic, we put our patients’ satisfaction as our top priority, so you can be sure that you will head home a happier you.
Many of EHA Clinic’s aesthetic procedures have very minimal downtime. Working professionals may not be able to afford to take too much time off from work, making aesthetic procedures perfect for them. This is in stark contrast to plastic surgery, which would require days of rest for the body to recover and bruising to fade.
Fat-reduction procedures such as Coolsculpting by Zeltiq and Liposonix would require a short and comfortable treatment. Dermal fillers and BOTOX injections can be performed within the hour. After the treatment, patients can return to perform their everyday duties, whether that be working, studying or simply relaxing.
Dr Tam may advise you against performing some activities that may affect the results of the procedure, such as heavy physical activity. This varies from procedure to procedure so always be sure to speak to the nurses about post treatment do’s and dont’s.
With the advancements in technology, our treatments have improved in levels of comfort. Discomfort varies from treatment to treatment, but our patients report that our treatments are, at most, only slightly uncomfortable.
At EHA, we take great pride in ensuring your visit is a pleasant experience. Our clinic is equipped with not only WIFI for our customers, a massage chair and a VIP room for privacy and to touch up their make-up, it is also manned by friendly and knowledgable staff. Dr Tam is always ready to answer any questions or concerns you may have about your treatment.
