Meet Joie Leong, a make-up artist based in Singapore. She came to Dr K K Chew to address her concerns in retaining and maintaining youthful looking skin.

Beauty comes from the inside and we do need to take care of it through our lifestyle. Nevertheless, there are things that we cannot prevent from happening. An example of that is the aging process.

Changes in the aging skin include:

  • Thinner and wrinkled skin
  • Increased chances of pigmentation
  • Increased chances scarring
  • Slower scar healing
  • Slower skin regeneration

which may cause wrinkles, dark spots, and increased visibility of scars [1].

There are various treatments available to maintain your skin. This may include facelifts, fillers, lasers, and IPL treatments.

Before taking any procedure, make sure to consult with an experienced doctor to find out which treatment is suitable for you.


NU.U Aesthetics practices the philosophy that aesthetic treatments should refresh your appearance without altering the essence of your identity. Consultations about clinically tested and proven techniques by an experienced doctor are available at NU.U's clinic at Paragon Medical.

I hope that you've found this guide useful, and perhaps gained more insight into the application process. Most of the admissions-related information (admin and logistics wise) can be found on the official NUS Faculty of Dentistry website.

To help yourself out, you should take note of what people look for when they look for a dentist.
