WHY MICRONEEDLING FOR MEN IS BECOMING THE LATEST TREND
Aesthetic treatments are certainly on the rise for men, as a means to improve skin quality and also to combat the signs of ageing. While some male customers are entirely new to aesthetic and cosmetic procedures, others may have tried chemical peels or microdermabrasion, but not ready for laser treatments.
Fortunately, Microneedling is an excellent non-surgical treatment that can help men achieve smoother, clearer skin and natural results.
What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is an anti-ageing treatment which uses a mechanical device with thin, surgical-grade needles to create micro-injuries in the skin’s surface. The body then responds by generating new collagen and elastin to fill these wounds. To stimulate even greater collagen production, the patient’s own platelet-rich plasma may be applied over these tiny punctures. Additionally, topical serums are delivered via the precisely-made holes to boost the wound healing effect and cellular rejuvenation.
What are the benefits of Microneedling?
Despite taking care of their skin with sun protection and a daily skincare regimen, many guys have unwanted photo-damage, fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation.
Microneedling is able to target all of these concerns in a 30-minute session. It can be performed on the face, chest, neck, and other parts of the body. In addition, the procedure can penetrate to the deeper layers of the skin and repair acne scars, stretch marks, and surgical scars without the thermal damage or recovery associated with lasers.
Microneedling for men can improve skin tone and texture, diminish wrinkles and fine lines, soften acne scars, and reduce discoloration with minimal downtime. Plus, microneedling offers men a safe and natural way to enhance their appearance because the treatment uses the body’s own healing mechanisms to produce results.
When can one see results?
After their first session, most men notice that their skin is softer and brighter. Additional effects become apparent over the next several weeks and can continue to progress for up to six months.
The number of treatments recommended varies from person t person and depends on skin quality and specific concerns and goals. However, a series of three-to-six treatments is typically advised.

WellaFreeze Fat Freeze Slimming Treatment for Men
What is WellaFreeze Fat Freeze?
WellaFreeze™ Fat Freeze Cryolipolysis is an innovative slimming technology which uses a safe and controlled cooling technology which is popularly known as cryolipolysis. This non-invasive treatment freezes and destroys your fat cells, thereby helping to sculpt your body, delivering sustainable end results with minimal pain.
The Cooler Way to Shape Your Body
The exposure of your fat cells to the sub-zero temperatures helps to eliminate the fat cells and begins a process of natural removal in the body. This gradually reduces the thickness of your fat layer. The fat cells are typically frozen and would be processed and eliminated by your body naturally within four weeks or more.
WellaFreeze Fat Freeze for Men
WellaFreeze Fat Freeze is ideal for men. This is especially so for men that are experiencing a decreasing metabolic rate. A decrease in metabolic rate means that more fat gets accumulated at the belly (a.k.a. beer belly), as well as the stubborn love handles. Belly fat is a common term used to describe fat that forms beneath your abdominal skin and in the spaces around your abdominal organs. If enough fat accumulates around your organs, you can develop significant risks for a number of serious health problems. Men tend to gain belly fat after age 40 because of changes in their metabolism.
Some men also have a genetic tendency toward obesity and belly fat accumulation. However, in most cases, the roles of genetics is relatively small when compared to physical inactivity and other lifestyle choices. Among these choices is the regular consumption of alcohol, which can lead to the development of a classic "beer belly." However, beer isn't the only form of alcohol that can contribute to the development of belly fat. In fact, with the potential exception of wine, significant consumption of any form of alcohol can increase your tendency to form fat in your abdomen.
At Wellaholic, we understand the major problem body areas for men where fat accumulates easily, and our consultants are able to provide an in-depth advice on how to treat these areas. Wellaholic also have a 1:1 ratio of male to female therapists, and this means that our male therapists are always available to help you with fat freeze at sensitive areas.
Which Target Group is WellaFreeze Fat Freeze Suitable For?
WellaFreeze is suitable for people who are looking to selectively remove stubborn fats at specific areas of their body. Popular areas include the arms, upper and lower stomach/abdomen, inner and outer thighs/legs, love handles, chin area, etc.
How Immediate Will You See Results?
Generally it will take about 4 weeks or longer to see results, and this varies with your body's metabolism.

Microneedling is a minimally-invasive procedure which reaches skin below the surface. The procedure creates many microscopic punctures in the skin’s outer layers. This is sometimes called collagen induction therapy because the process stimulates the body’s production of collagen and elastin during the wound healing response. It is used to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, and stretch marks on the body.
Benefits of micro needling
MICRONEEDLING VS LASER - WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Introduction to Microneedling and Lasers
Microneedling is an emerging minimally-invasive treatment that is gaining popularity due to its minimum downtime and almost-immediate visible results. Although fractional ablative lasers have bridged the efficacy-versus-downtime gap between the traditional CO2 lasers and nonablative lasers, no laser can treat severe perioral rhytides successfully.
While lasers is effective for tissue tightening, microneedling can quickly and effectively address issues ranging from stubborn wrinkles to stretch marks. Both treatments complement each other very well
Benefits of Microneedling
On the other hand, microneedling together with micro-wounding creates controlled wounds that encourages healing in a way that tilling a field increases its yield. Microneedling is also affordable and inexpensive, and combines well with other aesthetic procedures.
Generally, most dermatologists would recommended using microneedling devices with disposable tips (for safety and hygiene reasons) and with as many needles as possible. Drum-shaped needle rollers are hard to clean, and also hard to apply the appropriate pressure to the skin. In addition, the permanent needles dulls quickly and cannot reach the effectiveness of the microneedling pens.
Technical Tips to Take Note When Performing Microneedling
For perioral rhytides and other indications, a simple microneedling approach without Radiofrequency (RF) assistance is adequate enough. There are some technical tips to take note of:
Treatment for Atropic Scars
For atrophic scars, traditional pulsed CO2 lasers can provide significant improvements with just one treatment. But to avoid post-treatment mismatches, the laser procedure must be delivered to entire cosmetic units. This is not the case with microneedling. With microneedling, a small area of atropic scars within a cosmetic unit can be treated without having to worry about color mismatches.
Microneeding for Enlarged Pores
Dermatologists, such as Dr. Alster also love using microneedling for enlarged pores. Microneedling disrupts the fibrotic pores and induces new collagen formation. For striae that covers large body areas, microneeding is able to improve both the skin texture and tightness.
Wellaholic's Microneeding with Serum Options
Wellaholic's Microneedling is a safe, minimally invasive, and effective aesthetic treatment for several different dermatologic conditions including acne and other scars. Given its expedient post-treatment recovery, limited side effect profile, and significant clinical results, microneedling is a valuable alternative to more invasive procedures such as laser skin resurfacing and deep chemical peeling.
Microneedling treatments have proven to be more effective than surgical treatments, laser resurfacing and chemical peels in stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, which reinforces the skin, removes the wrinkles and smooths the scars.

IT DOESN'T ALWAYS HAVE TO BE A PAINFUL AFFAIR
If you have ever been to a waxing salon or studio, you would be familiar with the pain of having all your hairs being ripped forcefully out from their follicles via waxing. Waxing is not only a painful affair but a regular affair, as waxing removes the hair but does not impact the hair follicles, which continues to sprout hair.
In short, waxing is not only painful but does not provide a good ROI (return on investment) for your journey towards hair removal.
What about Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal, while able to lead to permanent hair reduction, has a slight drawback. It does not remove hair right away. In fact, only about 10% of the hair follicles are affected during each session. Most customers take about 8 to 12 sessions spaced about 28 to 30 days apart to see the best hair reduction.
However, if you persist at it, you will be totally done by next Summer!
Laser Hair Removal does not hurt as much as waxing
Yes, you read this right. SHR or Super Hair Removal does not hurt, due to the low fluence and rapid frequency setting - which is not only painless but also gentle on sensitive skin. This is different from waxing, which simply just hurts. No matter how good your waxer is or how long you have been doing it, waxing hurts.
Laser Hair Removal prices have become affordable
5 years ago, many customers opt for waxing because the laser hair removal technology was expensive and each treatment cost a lot of money. Fortunately, the price of the treatments have dropped to a point that they are actually competing with per-session waxing prices.
Wellaholic offers value-for-money SHR Unlimited packages
Over at Wellaholic, we offer SHR Unlimited packages. These packages are divided into two tiers:
Deluxe Tier allows SHR on unlimited body parts (spaced 28 days apart) with exception of Brazilian or Boyzilian.
Prestige Tier allows SHR on unlimited body parts including Brazilian or Boyzilian.
Note the 28 days gap? This is because each treatment should try to impact the hair follicles on a 28-day interval, to coincide with the hair's anagen growth. Any earlier or later would cause the treatment to fall out of sync with the hair growth cycle.

WELLAFREEZE FAT FREEZE ALWAYS STARTS WITH THE MEASUREMENT OF YOUR TREATMENT AREA
At Wellaholic, we take our fat freeze or cryolipolysis treatments very seriously. This is because the fat freeze treatments involves deep freezing, or apoptosis, which is the ideal exposure of sub-zero temperatures for non-invasive fat reduction.
The fat cells are eliminated through a gradual freezing process that does not harm surrounding tissues. The body's natural metabolic process will then remove the unwanted fat.
Now, because the thickness of the treatment area will impact the duration of treatment as well as the temperature, it is highly important that our therapists measure the treated layer via both a pinch test (with fingers) as well as with the calipers. The measurement is then recorded to gauge progress of the customer over time.
Even if the customer insists on adjust to a lower temperature or prolonging the treatment process, we do not allow it. This is because the safety of the customer must come first, and effectiveness and efficacy next. By overtreating the area, the chances of a freeze burn increases dramatically. A freeze burn is a very painful process , similar to a second-degree burn which can lead to permanent scarring. For the safety of all our customers, our therapists take extra caution to prevent any possibilty of freeze burns.
Also, if a customer wants to do several WellaFreeze Fat Freeze treatments in a single day, we will always limit the number of session to three hours a day. Why is this the case? Now, when several body parts are treated, it results in a high percentage of frozen dead fat cells, which affects the overall body acidity. This phenomenon, is known as metabolic acidosis. Metabolic acidosis is a condition that occurs when the body produces excessive quantities of acid or when the kidneys are not removing enough acid from the body, and may lead to lightheadedness, muscle twitching, prolonged muscle spasms and other complications. Once again, the safety of our customers always comes first!
With these possible complications, is there a silver lining? Fortunately, there is! WellaFreeze Fat Freeze uses the Coolsculping or Cryolipolysis procedure which has shown to be effective in removing between 14 to 28% of visceral fat 30 to 60 days after each treatment. This makes this treatment the safest non-invasive treatment to liposuction, which is more expensive and also carries higher risk.

SCIENCE OF ELIGHT (IN-DEPTH SERIES) #2 - AfterGlow
In this second segment of the Science of Elight series, we will share a bit more about the AfterGlow Red Light treatment and what it does for your skin.
Ageing Skin and the Loss of Elasticity
As we age, we lose our skin’s elasticity because we produce less collagen. Because of that, our skin loses its capability to bounce back in place. Several intrinsic and extrinsic factors contribute to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.
Intrinsic factors are those that you have no control about such as your genes and your biological age. We will all grow old eventually and we cannot prevent time from aging us but we can grow old gracefully and concentrate on other factors that we can do something about.
External factors are those that our environment can influence such as cigarette smoking, drying effects of the weather, poor lifestyle and diet, exposure to harsh sun or too much UV-exposure, or by using harsh skin care products.
Using Red Light to Reverse Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Red light therapy powers up the cells to release Adenosine Triphosphate or ATP to increase the metabolism, cell regeneration, and cellular processes. The release of cellular energy makes the most of the nutrients, oxygen, detoxification, growth, and repair that is already started by exposure to red light treatment.
Red light therapy stimulates blood circulation and the development of new capillaries. Because of this, more nutrients and oxygen is delivered to the skin that results in a healthier radiance. This light stimulus gives you that instant glow that people associate with healthy and young skin.
Red light therapy also increases lymphatic system activity to reduce puffiness and swelling. Because of the increased blood circulation, the lymphatic system does a better job of removing excess fluids and wastes from the skin tissues. The results are instantaneous and can be noticed after the first and succeeding treatment.
Red light therapy also boosts the production of collagen and fibroblasts. These two superheroes are what makes you achieve the youthful appearance over time. Collagen (together with elastin) gives your skin the elasticity, firmness, and fullness that somehow disappears when people age. The increased collagen and fibroblasts help reduce pore size, smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, and help improve and smooth out the texture of the skin.
Case Studies on the use of Red Light to Reduce Fine Lines
A paper was published in the Photomag Laser Surg publication to investigate on the safety and efficacy of red light, involving 136 volunteers. Of these volunteers, 113 subjects randomly assigned into four treatment groups were treated twice a week with either 611–650 or 570–850 nm polychromatic light (normalized to ∼9 J/cm2 in the range of 611–650 nm) and were compared with controls (n=23). Irradiances and treatment durations varied in all treatment groups. The treated subjects experienced significantly improved skin complexion and skin feeling, profilometrically assessed skin roughness, and ultrasonographically measured collagen density.
In conclusion, Red Light Treatment (or RLT) or AfterGlow can lead to improvements in skin complexion as well as skin rejuvenation. AfterGlow provides a safe, non-ablative and non-thermal treatment of skin tissue with high patient satisfaction results. AfterGlow, when used on a regular and consistent basis as part of the Elight Facial Collagen Boost plan will help extend the spectrum of anti-ageing treatment benefits to the customers.
MICRONEEDLING IS THE ANTI-AGEING BEAUTY TREATMENT JENNIFER ANISTON CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT
When it comes to anti-aging beauty treatments, celebrities have tried it all. That said, there is one treatment that many — including Jennifer Aniston — swear by. So, what is this secret weapon against fine lines, wrinkles, and other visible signs of aging? Microneedling!
In interview with People Magazine, Aniston remarked, "it allows the serums and whatever products you’re using to really soak in." Aniston is referring to the fact that microneedling (thorugh the many micropunctures created on the skin) provides a short window of opportunity that allows post-treatment products to travel down the fresh channels in the skin reaching the important parts at concentrations that are not otherwise possible. These channels allow a momentary increase in permeability that is hundreds of times the normal degree that topical products can penetrate the skin. The effects of topical serums can be accelerated dramatically.
But that’s actually not the main benefit of microneedling.
The single most aging thing that happens to our skin is the gradual loss of collagen and elastin. Microneedling triggers the skins wound-responses causing it to produce new collagen and elastin and making the skin look and feel younger and firmer. Wrinkles are reduced, tones are evened and sagging is lifted.
Unlike many other profoundly effective treatments microneedling does not try to force skin cells into a different state unnaturally. Microneedling triggers the skin’s own native rejuvenation process and is, therefore, completely natural. For this reason it works amazingly well with all skin types.

SCIENCE OF ELIGHT (IN-DEPTH SERIES) #1 - ELIGHT
As part of our Elight In-Depth Series, we will be discovering the science behind each part of our Elight Facial Collagen Boost Treatment. This educational series aims to uncover the mechanics behind each technology treatment based on collated findings from the various dermatological reports and case studies from universities and research organisations around the world.
Elight is a Combination of Radio Frequency and IPL treatment
Elight includes three advanced technologies that combine to deliver effective treatments without sacrificing comfort. Elight includes both the Radio Frequency (RF) as well as Intense Pulse Light (IPL) as well as a "Cool Touch" mechanism.
Radio Frequency (RF) skin tightening is an aesthetic technique that uses radio frequency or radio wave energy to heat tissue and stimulate subdermal collagen production. This is effective in reducing fine lines, wrinkles and loose skin. The nature of RF is such that they are operating at a lower frequency than the light waves used in lasers, RF can go beyond the skin surface more safely to improve skin tone and structure. RF generates an electromagnetic field between two poles, passing through the deepest parts of the skin, resulting in cellular movement. With repeated treatments, it helps to dramatically tighten skin, resulting in a more defined jaw contour, non-sagging cheeks, etc. Because of the nature of RF, it greatly complements IPL and hence enhances the treatment effect.
Evidence-Based Effect of RF Facial Rejuvenation
A study by the Department of Dermatology by Al-Minya Univeristy, Egypt concluded that Monopolar radiofrequency (RF) is emerging as a gentler, nonablative skin-tightening treatment that is able to deliver uniform heat to the dermis at a controlled depth. For the study, Six individuals of Fitzpatrick skin type III to IV and Glogau class I to II wrinkles were subjected to 3 months of treatment (6 sessions at 2-week intervals). Standard photographs and skin biopsy specimens were obtained at baseline, and at 3 and 6 months after the start of treatment. We performed quantitative evaluation of total elastin, collagen types I and III, and newly synthesized collagen using computerized histometric and immunohistochemical techniques. Blinded photographs were independently scored for wrinkle improvement.
RF produced noticeable clinical results, with high satisfaction and corresponding facial skin improvement. Compared with the baseline, there was a statistically significant increase in the mean of collagen types I and III, and newly synthesized collagen, while the mean of total elastin was significantly decreased, at the end of treatment and 3 months post-treatment.
Intense Pulse Light (IPL)
IPL is a special type of light, similar to the laser. IPL uses a specially designed lamp to generate a source of high intensity light, which through the given filter changes its characteristics for different treatments. IPL is an intense, pulsed low-fluence (or density) light used in a non-abrasive way to rejuvenate the skin. During treatment, light pulses are directed evenly over the skin. The light passes through the epidermis and penetrates deeper into the dermis where the pulsed light energy stimulates cells called fibroblasts to produce fresh collagen. Over several treatments, this new collagen smooths and softens the appearance of wrinkles, pores and textural irregularities. It also treats sun-damaged skin with pigmentation abnormalities, spider veins and rosacea, which absorb the light and are damaged until they fade from view.
IPL in Treating Vascular Lesions
In the research study by David J Goldberg filed with the Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology, IPL has shown to be able to successfully treat Vascular Lesions. (see diagrams below)
One of the main advantages of IPL technology is the absence of postoperative purpura, which minimizes postprocedure downtime substantially. Rather than inducing immediate purpura, the goal of treating vascular lesions with IPL is to raise the blood vessel temperature high enough to cause its coagulation, leading to its destruction and replacement by fibrous granulation tissue. Because of its polychromaticity, IPL can target oxyhemoglobin (predominantly found in clinically red lesions), deoxygenated hemoglobin (predominantly in blue lesions), and methemoglobin, with absorption peak wavelengths of 418, 542, and 577. The successful treatment of vascular lesions with IPL depends on the type and size of vessels targeted, with cherry angiomas and superficial telangiectatic veins typically demonstrating the best response.
IPL for Treating Photoaged Skin
Among the variety of methods used to treat photoaged skin, IPL has gained significant interest because of the patient’s rapid recovery after the procedure. Dyschromia, especially of the face, is a common complaint of patients seeking photorejuvenation with laser or light technology. Localized epidermal melanocyte, melanin, or ecstatic vessel aggregates enhance the color contrast with the surrounding skin giving it an uneven, heterogeneous tone. Breaks in the homogeneous color palette of the skin are perceived by the human eye as “imperfections” and has been shown to be one of the principal defining features of “old”-appearing skin. When utilizing a light source for treatment of pigmented skin lesions, the localization of the pigment target is a key determinant for the selection of the appropriate therapeutic wavelength. Wavelengths in the range of 630 to 1100nm account for both a preferential absorption of melanin over hemoglobin as well as an effective dermal penetration depth.
The mechanism of action of IPL for treating pigmentary lesions is thought to be the result of rapid differentiation of keratinocytes induced by thermal heating. This process results in an upward transfer of melanosomes along with necrotic keratinocytes, resulting in their elimination as the microcrusts are removed from the skin surface. These effects have been demonstrated in vivo using both reflectance-mode confocal microscopy and optical coherence tomography, which allow precise visualization of melanosomes in the skin in horizontal and vertical dimensions, respectively.
IPL for Rhytids and Wrinkles
Fine superficial wrinkles in the skin are the result of a combination of intrinsic and extrinsic aging processes that affect the skin with the passage of time. Intrinsic aging results in the gradual reduction of extracellular matrix proteins, such as collagen and hyaluronic acids, in the dermis due to a chronological senescence of dermal fibroblasts. Extrinsic aging of the skin is mainly the result of long-term exposure to UV radiation from the sun, which leads to further breakdown of collagen fibers by oxygen radicals. The overall result is a decrease in dermal structural support and volume, leading to a reduction in skin torsion extensibility, thereby causing the overlying redundant epidermis to wrinkle.
The thermal stimulation of dermal fibroblasts by the higher wavelengths within the IPL spectrum has been shown to result in increased synthesis of extracellular matrix proteins, leading to at least partial replacement of the lost dermal volume. Specifically, wavelengths in the 1200nm spectrum are absorbed by water in the dermis, triggering a cytokine reaction, which, in turn, stimulates the formation of new collagen I, III, and elastin. Histological evaluation of the effects of five subsequent IPL treatments with 570 to 645nm wavelengths showed epidermal thickening of 100 to 300µm, a decrease in horny plugs, new rete ridge formation, a decrease in proportion of degenerated elastic fibers, and new dermal collagen formation.
The most commonly targeted wrinkles are those in the perioral and periorbital regions, with finer, more superficial lines typically responding better than deeper furrows. Results are often subtle and require multiple treatment sessions. Recent studies suggest that combining localized or full-face IPL treatments with concomitant botulinum toxin injections for dynamic rhytids produce better results than IPL treatment alone.
As the first step in the Elight Facial Collagen Boost procedure, Elight has multiple benefits which can scientifically help improve the skin layer and texture, and diminish fine lines. Nevertheless, a consistent, regular treatment is essential to reap the benefits of Elight. In our next segment of this In-Depth Series, we will find out more about what our AfterGlow Red Light treatment is all about, and its benefits to your skin.
Do You Know Why Wellaholic Continues to Maintain Our Elight Facial Unlimited at such an Affordable Rate Over the Years?
DO YOU KNOW WHY WELLAHOLIC CONTINUES TO MAINTAIN OUR ELIGHT FACIAL UNLIMITED AT SUCH AN AFFORDABLE RATE OVER THE YEARS?
Elight Facial Collagen Boost

Why Do We Maintain the Affordable Pricing?
Over the years, Wellaholic has consistently maintained the affordable pricing of our Elight facial, and even adding an additional Diamond Peel Microdermabrasion without any increase in the packages. Why do we do that? This is because Elight Facial Collagen Boost is the foundation aesthetic treatment offered by Wellaholic when we first launched in 2016. As part of our Brand Promise to provide affordable treatments to our customers, we have worked hard to maintain the amazing pricing of our Elight Facial which gives our customers regular treatments over a long period of time unmatched by other beauty providers in Singapore.
Treatments that Work
Facial treatments are akin to working out at a gym - one single session at the gym will give you a short-term muscular boost and burn off some calories, but unless you consistently train at the gym, you will not be able to maintain that desired physique that you desire. Similarly, regular facials with a consistent disciplined approach will help reverse the years off your face. But it takes time. Elight uses a mixture of technology to boost collagen, but it also requires a consistent approach to treat the face over and over again. For our customers who persist and stick to the routine of at least one facial a week, they are always amazed by the results.
We will start off our Elight Facial Collagen Boost educational series by sharing more about the scientific approach behind each of the treatment in the following few weeks. Watch this space!
