Acne is one of the most common skin conditions that occurs when hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells. The causes are multifactorial, which include stress, genetics, hormonal, diet, medications, environment and certain medical conditions.
Prompt treatment of acne is necessary to prevent scarring. Delayed treatment or misuse of skincare products may lead to severe scarring. Here in UMH, we provide a stepwise approach to treating acne and scars as follows:
Healthy, glowing skin is essential to enhance our appearance. In the normal aging process, there will be a decrease in dermal thickness, loss of collagen and elastin fibres, and a reduction in the number of eccrine glands, which leads to the loss of water-retaining capacity of the skin.
Factors that may speed up the aging process include genetic predisposition and external causes such as smoking, stress, lack of sleep and sun exposure.
Wrinkles are defined as creases or furrows in the skin surface, due to epidermal thinning, decrease in chondroitin sulphate and deposition of abnormal elastic tissue in the papillary dermis.
There are two types of wrinkles- dynamic and static. Dynamic wrinkles appear during facial expression, while static wrinkles are permanent creases in the skin.
Skin pigmentation is one of the major concerns among Asians due to reactive melanin production and frequent sun exposure. UVA rays penetrate to the dermis, causing extracellular matrix breakdown and thus leading to aging. UVB rays can cause sunburn and increase the risk of skin cancer by inducing DNA mutations via the p53 tumour suppressor gene.
Remember that rule number one is to always use SUNSCREEN!
Aging process is largely manifested by gravity-induced inferior vector of ptosis, or more commonly known as sagging skin in general. As we age, weakened collagen in the skin’s deep support structures results in laxity.
There are a variety of treatments available for face lifting and tightening, ranging from non-invasive to minimal-invasive procedures.
The golden ratio of the nose is 1 to 1.618 which means if the width of the nose is 1, the length of the nose should be about 1.618. Nasolabial angle is formed by the intersection of the two lines passing through the lower edge of the nose (the columella) and the edge of the upper lip. A range of nasolabial angle from 95-115 degrees is considered desirable in women, while 90-95 degrees is preferred in men.
The nose thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure that helps to improve the nose shape in a painless and quick manner.
The golden ratio of upper lip thickness to lower lip thickness is 1 to 1.6. Changes in lip volume, texture, and structure can occur due to volume deficits as we age. Other than rejuvenation, treatments are available for those who prefer fuller and sexier lips like Hollywood celebrities as well.

Properly-shaped and lifted eyebrows give you a well-rested, more attractive appearance and always look your best, with or without makeup. Assessment will be done by our doctors accordingly to meet the customers’ personal preference and satisfaction.
The underlying causes of these problems are multifactorial, which include genetic predisposition, lipodystrophy, bone remodeling, volume deficits secondary to loss of collagen and elastin fibres as occurred in normal aging process.
The eyes are the windows to one’s soul. Hence, good volume and tone around the eyes make one looks more refreshing in general.
Prevention is always better than cure. Start your skin care and maintenance as early as possible regardless whether you are at your 20s, 30s or 40s.
In UMH, we care about you as a whole, and always aim to make you shine inside out. Our team will customize treatment plans individually.
Getting rid of stubborn fat can be frustrating and stressful. Some would resort to extreme dieting or starvation to get the desired results. However, there are so many safe methods along with a nutritious diet and exercise to counter this issue.
There could be many reasons why you’re not losing weight efficiently.
Some of the common causes could be slow metabolism, hormonal imbalance, stress, or an unhealthy lifestyle. Here, we would provide you with a full consultation to explore possible causes and advise you accordingly on the right treatment plan.
Scars are your body’s way of healing after several layers of your skin have undergone trauma. Whether the result of injury, surgery, or severe acne, it can be a challenge to find effective scar treatment. Although there’s no way to make a scar disappear completely, there are ways to diminish it. The right treatment for a scar would also depend on the type of scar you have.
There is no reason to live in regret and embarrassment over an unwanted tattoo any longer. Through a series of treatment sessions done monthly, Pico laser offers a solution to effectively remove a tattoo of different colours. The pico laser treatment works by breaking up the pigmentation into small particles without affecting the surrounding skin, which essentially is removed via the lymphatic system of our body’s immune system.
In UMH, we use the latest technology by Fotono Starwalker to effectively fade away unwanted tattoos over time. You will be able to see results after a few sessions.
Cellulite, also known as orange peel skin, is a term for the formation of lumps and dimples in the skin. It could affect both men and women, but it is more common in females due to the different distribution of fat, muscle, and connective tissues. The exact cause of cellulite is unknown, but some of the factors that appear to be linked are hormonal factors, aging, genetics, dietary and lifestyle changes.
Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is a condition where there is sweating beyond the normal needs of the body. The sites most commonly affected are the palms (palmar hyperhidrosis), feet (plantar hyperhidrosis) and armpits (axillary hyperhidrosis).
Excessive body hair can be distressing to some people, while some prefer to remove certain parts of the body hair for self-satisfaction.
In UMH, we are using long pulsed Nd-YAG laser for hair removal. The pros of laser hair removal include less pain, a longer-lasting effect, and fewer sessions needed. By using a laser, fine hair removal like facial and upper lip hair removal can be done easily and quickly as well.
Hair loss, or in medical term known as alopecia, occurs when normal hair growth cycle is disrupted due to some factors, such as genetic predisposition, hormonal changes, stress, or secondary to certain medical conditions.
A hair growth cycle consists of three phases. During the anagen phase, hair grows actively. In catagen phase, hair stops growing and separates from its follicle, which is the structure beneath the skin that holds the hair in place. While in telogen phase, the follicle rests for two or three months, and then the hair falls out. Most people lose 50 to 100 hairs per day as part of this natural cycle.
