Aging and Its Implications
Photoaging is a consequence of UV light from the sun. Over a period of time, the UV light rays induces fine wrinkles to develop, pigmentation spots to form and it damages the skin’s architecture, causing a loss of its original elasticity and smoothness.
Eventually, all these change cause us to undergo premature aging, to look older from our physiological self.
The Time Freeze Reversal
Areas that it can treat:
- Improves fine wrinkles
- Destroys pigmentations
- Removes moles
- Tightens sagging skin
- Strengthens skin’s architecture via collagen stimulation
- Lifts sagging eye lids
- Minimises pores
- Softens scarring
How does it work?
- Time Freeze laser falls in the wavelength of 10600nm and this corresponds to water as the laser chromophore.
- Essentially this just means that the laser energy is strongly absorbed by water in the skin!
- This energy is then translated to vaporising parts of the skin as seen in fractional skin resurfacing technology which allows only some regions to be treated each time such that healing can be accelerated!
- The skin then heals within 5-8 days where you would observe the post treatment care for great results!
The Time Freeze Lift
Using the a customised protocol with the power adjusted to your skin and individual needs, a lifting and tightening effect can be achieved to soften those nasolabial folds and allow the jawline to be seen more clearly.
Time Freeze Reversal
Lifting VS Resurfacing
Which do I choose?
The Time Freeze Reversal is broken down into either Lifting or Resurfacing.
Lifting is recommended as an overall means of rejuvenation, with results that can rival that of threadlift. Find out more about The Time Freeze Lift here.
Resurfacing targets scarring and is used to treat extensive scarring.
How are they different? The downtime is almost minimal for Lift but there is a longer downtime for Resurfacing.
Dr Sin Yong Recommendations For Post Treatment Care
(I) Darkening and swelling is the most at 48 hours post treatment.
- Use of RAI Post Laser Intensive Recovery Serum to improve scab care, lessen PIH and also decrease swelling and redness.
(II) Scab Care
- Aggressively moisturise all treated areas every hour for the first two days.
- To add on RAI Post Laser Intensive Recovery Serum before applying moisturiser.
- Thereafter, moisturise 5 times a day until all scabs fall off.
- Allow scabs to fall off naturally and do not pick on scabs, as picking at them prematurely may result in scarring.
- Avoid chemical peels, microdermabrasion, microbead scrubs and exfoliating agents to treated site.
- Use of cold water to wash face for the first 30 hours
(III) Prevention of Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation
- Strict sun avoidance and protection for 2 weeks prior to treatment and at least 4 weeks after treatment.
- Walk in sheltered areas. Use an umbrella when in non sheltered areas.
- Note that even a short exposure of 10 minutes of sunlight during lunch time can be detrimental towards you achieving the optimal result of time freeze laser.
- Maintain regular sun-protection with sunblock, which can be applied after the first two days, when warm water no longer causes any sting to the face.
(IV) Swelling & Redness
- If no allergy/asthma, to take Arcoxia 90mg in the morning for 3 days to minimise swelling.
