5 Easy Ways to Delay Signs of Agingby Andy Cheng Director
It is a constant struggle for most women who want to age gracefully by delaying signs of aging without having to undergo major cosmetic surgical procedures. It is many women's dream to be able to wipe off several years from their faces without having to expose themselves to surgical risks and looking unnatural at the end of the procedure.
As the folds deepen, eyelids droop, cheeks and jawline begin to sag, many women scurry to look for expensive creams in a desperate bid to defy gravity and lift the skin.
“If you have been spending your hard earned money buying expensive creams to apply on your face hoping that these creams can prevent aging, you might be disappointed to know that most creams don't work. Your skin is effective at protecting you against the absorption of harmful substances – including your thousand-dollar skincare product.” says Dr. Siew Tuck Wah, Medical Director of Radium Medical Aesthetics.
Dr. Siew shares with us some tips on how we can regain firmness and lift sagging skin to restore the facial contours; looking natural, yet visibly lifted – non-surgically – without emptying your bank account.
Tip 1: Anti-Aging Yoga
It has been suggested that lifespan of Indians in some parts of India is longer than that of the people living in the U.S. despite little or no affordable healthcare. This is why many Indians are forced to turn to alternative ways to keep their bodies and minds healthy.
Yoga has been shown to slow down the natural aging process by the positive impact that yoga has. It reduces our fat, slows fat gain, calms the mind, and enhancing your physical and mental well-being.
“By doing simple stretches and movements in a calm environment, it strengthens your body without over-stressing it and eases your mind at the same time. These are essential elements for anti-aging.” says Dr. Siew. “Investing an hour or two per week and join a yoga class and you will see results sooner than you think!”

Tip 2: TriPollar Radiofrequency Skin Tightening
Leveraging on on 3 proprietary technologies, TriPollar is an effective non-surgical procedure to lift and firm saggy skin. It has 3 functions: Trilipo RF for skin tightening and fat reduction, TriLipo DMA for lifting the Superficial Muscular Aponeurotic System (SMAS) and TriFractional for advanced fractional skin resurfacing.
As TriPollar Skin Lifting Treatment is a gentle treatment, it is recommended to do this at least 8 weekly sessions to see visible lifting result. By the 8th session, you should see visible reduction in wrinkles and skin tightening of the face.

Tip 3: Silhouette Soft Thread Lift
Silhouette Soft Thread Lift is an advanced skin lifting procedure that provides visible lifting that stimulates collagen to restore shapeliness to the face.
Silhouette Soft Thread Lift uses resorbable sutures with tiny bidirectional cones. The fine threads are inserted under the skin using a fine needle. Slight pressure will be applied to guide the threads upwards until they are taut and embedded.
After the 45-minute procedure, the face will be visibly lifted and visible improvement of sagging skin can be seen.
With just one treatment, two outcomes can be achieved:
- Immediate lifting of sagging skin and improved facial contours is noted
- Ongoing collagen stimulation is achieved to restore loss volume. Plumping effect is pronounced by the stimulation from the cones.
With just one treatment, the effects can last for at least 12 months. Even if you don’t repeat the treatment in 12 months, your face will still be more lifted as compared to not receiving the treatment at all.
PRICE OF BEAUTY: Starts from $1,788
Tip 4: Lemon to Tighten Skin at Home
Lemon contains high concentration of vitamin C. Vitamin C is a key ingredient in many anti-aging skincare products which people part with thousands of dollars for. Why spend so much money when you can anti-age your skin at the comfort of your own home – at a fraction of the price?
Vitamin C helps to boost collagen production in your skin. It is also an effective ingredient to restore elasticity to your skin. Lemon is also great in tightening the skin and reduce signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles.
Squeeze some fresh lemon juice and dab it gently on your face and neck. Leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes and rinse it off with warm water. Do this daily and you will be amazed by the result!
PRICE OF BEAUTY: $0.50 from your local supermarket
