The anti-aging message that’s been peddled by the beauty industry for years is losing relevance. Women are growing more self-assured in general and are becoming less anxious about the signs of aging.
Having said that, there’s still a huge market for beauty offerings that can help you age gracefully.
There has been a slow move in focus away from eternal, youthful perfection to a spirit of positivity, confidence, and psychological and emotional health.
Responding in kind, the aesthetic world has seen a shift from fixing problems as they crop up to intelligent prevention. Here are what many doctors consider to be the best youth enhancers money can buy.

Ultrasound, more specifically microfocused ultrasound in the form of FDA approved Ultherapy is the gold standard for non-invasive skin tightening. Results are visible in a single 60 minute session.
Other ultrasound skin tightening devices do not come close in terms of penetration, depth and efficacy.
However, if cost is of concern and you wouldn’t mind a lighter anti-aging treat for your skin, you can consider Sygma Lift’s High frequency ultrasound that will help maintain your skin’s elasticity over time.
Seen as a ‘little sibling’ to Ultherapy’s more pronounced transformation, Sygma Lift still has its loyal supporters, as it is a fraction of Ultherapy’s cost, takes 30 minutes to perform and is virtually painless. A step up from the normal facial that intelligent millennials are flocking to.
Traditional consensus of only treating your skin when you look like an old handbag is outdated. Millennials’ take is to prevent problems even before they arise, investing in your skin so you can reap rewards in your future.
Radio In The Calvary
Radiofrequency, in its monopolar form is what makes Thermage one of the go-to anti-aging treatments for the past decade. Its prowess stems from its skin smoothening and age-prevention effects.
Other more superficial radiofrequency devices have arisen, but most, unlike Thermage’s one session schedule, require several sessions for peak results to emerge. Thermage of course comes with its inherent cost, being priced higher than milder radiofrequency treatments.
Best time to do: Thermage works wonders when combined with Ultherapy as found in Trinity facelift available at SW1 Clinic. This is the sort of one-off investment you want to do months before an important event or to ensure you face has the best future in the years to come.

According to Dr Low Chai Ling, founder of SW1 Clinic who has treated hundreds of patients with the Forever Young BBL protocol says “This is perfect alternative to any anti-aging facial as it delivers more visible benefits than the latter. The great thing is the lack of downtime and the immediate brightening of the skin.”
Best time to do it: The immediate glow imparted by this procedure makes this the perfect pre-party prep. With repeated sessions, you build on the skin lifting and ani-aging effect, giving your skin the suppleness and resilience to withstand future aging,
