Overview of Nonsurgical Treatments

Over time, factors like genetics, environmental damage and lifestyle choices create the visible effects of ageing. Non-surgical treatments can address these changes by softening wrinkles, plumping volume deficits and tightening the skin.

Young patients can also explore non-invasive and minimally-invasive cosmetic treatments. A variety of procedures are available to enhance facial shapes, nose and lip contours, jaw angle, skin tone and skin clarity.

At Asian Plastic Surgery and our partner clinic AF Aesthetics, we specialise in providing surgical and non-surgical treatments for patients of Asian heritage. Our practitioners are well-versed in the unique characteristics of Asian skin, Asian anatomy and Asian aesthetic preferences and adapt procedures accordingly. 

Benefits of Nonsurgical Treatments

Non-surgical treatments can be an option for patients who are not ready or not suitable for surgical solutions. The benefits of a non-surgical approach may include:

  • In-office procedures
  • No need for general anaesthesia
  • Reduced discomfort
  • Little to no downtime
  • Fewer recovery restrictions

If you are not a candidate for any of the treatments outlined below, you may be a candidate for a surgical procedure with one of our specialist plastic surgeons.

As we age, our skin becomes less elastic and loses the ability to ‘bounce back’ in the face of stressors. Lifestyle choices and sun damage have an effect, and a combination of diminishing muscle tone, fatty deposits and moisture leads to facial lines and loose skin. Asian patients in all stages of life are increasingly seeking non-surgical cosmetic treatments to address these changes.
