Scaredy-cats and those with a zero tolerance for pain can rejoice, cos this here is a treatment that literally has zero discomfort. In fact, its so relaxing, you can enjoy an hour-long nap, while the therapist runs the hand-piece of the Sygmalift, over and over your face, contouring and lifting your cheeks and jawline for 60-minutes, until you wake up, totally refreshed to much tighter, younger and brighter facial features!

I was pleasantly surprised to see that the treatment actually worked. I started off being a bit skeptical (as one often is), cos if it has no pain, how effective can it really be right? Well I shall be the first to admit that I was wrong, cos the SygmaLift actually does work.
However, to maintain the results, you do need to go for three sessions, one per week, in order for your face to remain lifted and youthful for a period of between six-months to one-year. The results, like all treatments, depends on your lifestyle and body, so if you have a relatively crappy lifestyle like myself (think insomnia, diet fuelled by junk food, cake and candy), don't expect it to last the whole year.
The doctor and therapists were all really nice and friendly and super helpful. After bombarding the doctor with a barrage of questions, I was led into a room to have my “before” photos taken. After which my therapist Kristy cleansed the lower part of my face and applied some gel and commenced with the treatment.

Thirty-minutes later, one side of my face was much higher, my nasolabial folds (those ugly lines that run from your nose down to your mouth on either side of your face) were completely erased, almost like they had been ironed out, and my jawline was so much sharper.
After letting me admire myself for a while, Kristy then progressed to lift the other side of my face. Once the lifting was complete, she removed the gel, ran a cold laser over the treated area (no feeling of discomfort or anything whatsoever), toned my skin with deliciously scented rose toner, applied some moisturiser and viola, I looked so much younger than when I walked in an hour ago.

If you notice that your jawline is starting to get a little less defined or your nasolabial folds are looking a little too pronounced or you simply want to give your face a bit of freshening-up and lifting, call Kowayo clinic, which is located at 1 Raffles link 01-03B, 1 Raffles Link (nearest MRT is City Hall) on 6884 4280 to find out more about the treatment.
Three sessions of SygmaLift, which is actually recommended or the results won't last you more than a month tops, would cost you $2,400 and last for between six months to a year, which if you break it down and do the math, is pretty decent.
The SygmaLift puts the old adage "no pain, no gain" to complete shame, cos in this case, you get all the gain minus any pain!
