If you are one of those people who like to be updated with the latest trends in aesthetic medicine, then you have probably heard the buzz about pico laser by now. Pico laser is a popular patented laser technology that has gained a huge traction as the new standard for treatment of pigmentation, scars, and pores in Singapore.
Contrary to the common belief, picolaser refers to a specific type of laser technology and not a brand or name of a laser machine. The word “pico” refers to picosecond, which is one trillionth of a second. A picolaser is an advanced pigment laser that is capable of producing high power laser beams with ultra-short pulse durations. Pulse duration pertains to how much time one laser shot can stay on the skin. Pico laser was created as an enhanced version of the traditional Q-switched lasers which can produce laser beams in the nanosecond (billionth of a second) duration. This makes picosecond lasers about ten times faster than the nanosecond Q-switched lasers, which also means that the pico laser can fire more laser shots in the same amount of time as compared to a Q-switched laser. The shorter pulse duration also means that the skin has a lesser tendency to heat up and this...
The nose is a very vital part of our body and affects both our bodily functions and our facial features. The nose can, in fact, affect our daily lives. For example, obstructions in the nose will hamper proper breathing which can result in other major health conditions. Aesthetically, the nose is said to affect how well our other facial features blend in our face and can affect one’s appearance.
If you are one of those people who are more concerned about your facial appearance, being unhappy with how your nose looks like can disrupt the harmony of your life. To address the different problems with the nose, rhinoplasty is performed. Rhinoplasty, also called “nose job” or “nose reshaping” is a surgical procedure that changes the shape of the nose which can correct both functional problems (such as breathing difficulties and nose injuries) and aesthetic concerns (such as reducing or increasing nose size, correcting a crooked nose and nasal hump removal).
For rhinoplasty in Singapore, whichever your objective may be, whether, for functional problems or aesthetic concerns, you may contact and set an...

Patients with misaligned jaws and have trouble speaking correctly, chewing easily or breathing may opt for jaw surgery in Singapore.
This is a functional procedure and is often not associated with cosmetic purposes. However, jaw surgery can also improve one’s appearance.
Let’s discover more about this procedure and who is suitable for jaw surgery.
What is jaw surgery?
Corrective jaw surgery, medically known as orthognathic surgery is a procedure performed to correct misalignment or deformities of the jaw and facial skeleton. An oral and maxillofacial surgeon performs this procedure.
The procedure can be performed on both minor as well as major conditions.
Orthognathic surgery is suitable for people who exhibit the following:
- Poor bite
- Difficulty speaking
- Jaw joint
- Lack of harmony between jaw and facial structure
- Long jaws, crooked jaws, and short jaws
Note that corrective jaw surgery can be performed on both the upper jaw and the lower jaw.

Nose thread lift is the most popular type of nose augmentation. But why? Well, most Singaporeans have a lower nose bridge with a more rounded tip. Singaporeans, therefore, strive to achieve the raised bridged and more pointed tip commonly seen in western cultures.
Nose augmentation can be carried out in two main ways—surgical rhinoplasty and non-surgical rhinoplasty.
Let’s find out more about nose thread lift in Singapore and why it may be the best for you.
Understanding nose thread lift
A nose thread lift is a surgical procedure done to alter and improve the structure and appearance of the nose. The technique is minimally invasive and is performed by inserting a bio-absorbable string known as polydioxanone (PDO).
With the procedure, the surgeon is able to raise the bridge, and change the contour and the overall shape of the nose.
The PDO threads...
