Sagging skin, heavy jowls, deep/fine lines and wrinkles – are you bothered by these changes on your face? These are signs that our skin has lost a great amount of collagen and elastin over the years as we age. Are you seeking for a non-complicated treatment that can help improve these concerns of yours?
How is wrinkles removal done?
Veritas Medical Aesthetics uses a simple, non-surgical treatment that can temporarily relax or diminish the appearance of wrinkles, lines and mild sagging, and provide a subtle face lift. It is carried out by an FDA and MOH approved injectible into targeted areas of the face. This procedure is carefully performed by Dr Chua who is highly skilled to achieve safe and natural-looking results. If you are looking for a treatment that is effective in improving the looks of wrinkles without looking “frozen”, Veritas Wrinkle Removal is an option you definitely can consider.
TREATMENT PROCESS AND BENEFITS
Injection of injectibles allows temporary improvement in the look of moderate to severe frown lines without changing the look or movement of the rest of your face. Wrinkles are caused by repeated movements and muscle contractions, and injectibles will help to relax these muscles. Untreated muscles still work normally hence facial expressions are not compromised. This procedure is often used in combination with other non-surgical facelifts and face contouring treatments. Numbing cream is applied prior to the treatment to minimize any discomfort, making the procedure totally tolerable. The fluid is then injected into targeted area(s) using a fine needle.
Injectibles can help with the following:
- Sagging skin (mild)
- Heavy jowls
- Deep laugh lines
- Calf size reduction
- Bunny lines (lines across the top of the nose)
- Forehead wrinkles
- Marionette lines (wrinkles around the mouth)
- Smoker’s lines (lines around the lips)

Is the treatment painful?
Numbing cream is applied prior to treatment to minimize any discomfort. Generally, the procedure is tolerable and comfortable for most patients
What can I expect after the procedure?
The effects can be felt and observed right after the treatment. It can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as lift sagging cheeks to make the area appear more youthful. As improvement progresses, the results become more noticeable after 1 week with the treatment in full effect.
When can I see results?
The injectibles creates an immediate skin tightening and lifting effect, which improves over the next 7-14 days after treatment.
How long do the results last?
It is usually recommended to have this treatment three times in the first and second year. The frequency can be decreased to twice a year from the third year onwards. Without any touch-up treatments, the lifted effect can last up to 4 months. It is recommended that you wait at least 90 days between injectibles treatments.
Is there any downtime?
Downtime is minimal for this treatment. Redness and swelling may occur right after treatment, but it will subside within a few hours. Small needle marks may also be noticeable on the injection site. Despite this, you will be able to resume your daily activities immediately after treatment.
Am I a suitable candidate?
Injectibles may not be right for you if you have plans for surgery or had surgery done on your face. It is also not advisable if you have weak muscles in the targeted area such as having weak forehead muscles/droopy eyelids. It is not suitable if you are pregnant/breastfeeding. For those with severe sagging, injectibles may not help much. Individuals with deep facial scars or thick oily skin should seek other lifting options as well.
