Upon arriving at the entrance of Dr Plus Aesthetics and Wellness Clinic, you will be greeted by Colla, the clinic’s bubbly blue mascot, whose cheerful smile sets a positive tone. It becomes evident that Colla derives its name from the clinic’s dedicated emphasis on the significance of collagen.
“The foundation of the skin is collagen. As we get older, our body produces less collagen which is why we need it from external sources,” said Dr Kenneth Lee, Founder & Medical Director of the clinic.
The significance of collagen lies in the fact that as one ages, the body’s natural collagen production diminishes compared to younger years. Consequently, it becomes imperative to not solely rely on collagen-rich foods or supplements, but to actively encourage collagen regeneration through supplementary treatments.
The clinic has three popular treatments, all of which tackle a different aspect of collagen importance within the body. The treatments are:
● Collagen Plus – Collagen Plus uses a three-step programme of lasers, ultrasound and LED light to stimulate the body’s production of collagen. This treatment is suitable for all skin types.
● Hifu Plus – Popular Korean treatment that shows results quickly by growing collagen and making it last longer through monthly treatment intervals. The treatment is also personalised and catered to the skin condition of each patient.
● Valor Plus – Utilising shockwave treatment to increase blood vessel growth, which in turn increases collagen growth during blood vessels formation through a process called collagenesis. This unique treatment is used to treat erectile dysfunction (ED) or as a prevention.
Out of the three, Valor Plus is one of their signature programmes. Although the topic of ED is considered quite taboo in Singapore, Dr Kenneth says that there is a demand in Singapore and is one of the clinic’s specialties.

Additionally, the option to incorporate skin boosters is available to further amplify the efficacy of this treatment.
