Singapore’s newest aesthetics centre – The Face, Body & Skin Aesthetics Medical Centre has just launched earlier this year in March and upon invitation, my best girl and I had popped by the flagship clinic at Paragon in Orchard Road for their opening celebration.
Helmed by Dr Chiam Chiak Teng the in-house doctor, and Michelle Lim the Group COO, FBS aims to raise the bar in holistic aesthetics treatments in the region by offering customised face and body treatments for their patients, ranging from lasers, V-lifts and body contouring; tailoring every experience to each individual’s requirements. Here’s the wonderful team which I’m beginning to grow very fond of. Thank you Dr Chiam, Carol and all the beautiful assistants for taking care of my skin the past two weeks. I am currently undergoing the Carbon Laser Peel, as well as hydrafacials aimed at reducing my active acne and better skin! It’s been two weeks and the results so far makes a girl smile, and there i go anticipating my next appointment.
The amiable Dr Chiam believes in adopting a multimodal approach to beauty, combining various techniques with daily care and products to achieve optimum results. He really strives to bring out and enhance his patient’s natural beauty to make them feel beautiful inside and out. It’s really about your goals and making you look your best
Dr Chiam has been a member of the American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine since 2012; he graduated from the National University of Singapore with a Bachelor’s Degree in Medicine and Surgery in 2007 and Graduate Diploma in Aesthetic Medicine from the American Academy in 2015. He’s a avid golfer and soccer fan – lol so there’s always something to talk about even if you’re a male patient who goes knocking on Dr Chiam’s door! *smiles*
FBS believes in an outcome-based approach to Aesthetic Medicine. At each consult, every patient’s ideas, concerns and expectations are explored with the doctor, who would then recommend them a combination of treatments that is designed to help patients attain their personal aesthetic goals.
FBS offers its own line of skincare products ranging from cleansers, toners, moisturizers and essences. The all-natural products are made in Switzerland and formulated for normal to sensitive skin; using ingredients with zero chemicals and parabens free. This skincare line is available exclusively at their Paragon centre.
I currently use their post laser serum as well as tinted sunscreen.
FBS’s exclusive sunscreen has an SPF 50+++.
Infused with Nutrient- Rich Portulaca Oleracea Extract for its Omega-3 Fatty acid, vitamins and minerals to protect against the damaging effects of free radicals while providing hydration and soothing properties.
It’s available at FBS located at 290 Orchard Road #09-30/31 Paragon (Lift Lobby C) Singapore 238859.
I’m not a stranger to Carbon Laser Peels and have had it done multiple times over the years – still a fan! Except that every year end, during the festive occassions, I let work take over and my skin degrades to a point where I’ll be screaming for help by March. Just in time to enlist the help of Dr Chiam and team lol.
Here’s a little bit about Carbon Laser Peels
I’ll rate it as 1/10 on the pain scale . Actually that just means it’s not painful….lol
Just some redness that goes off really quickly, so at the very most your friends/colleagues just think you’re flushed from the hot weather heh.
The Carbon Laser treatment is a laser procedure that uses a carbon layer as a photo-enhancer to improve the skin’s radiance and promotes a smooth and glowing complexion. This treatment is used to target active acne as the carbon powder penetrates into pores, thus allowing the laser to focus its energy more effectively. The Carbon Laser Peel helps to refine enlarged pores, reduce oil secretion, remove blackheads, and achieve a whitening effect.
How does it work?
Before performing the laser treatment, a layer of carbon lotion is applied on the entire face.
#helloblackface. So vogue aren’t you. lol
A carbon lotion is applied to the skin and allowed to dry over a period of 15 minutes. Then, the laser is used to heat and cause an implosion of the carbon particles the laser light is absorbed by the carbon paste focusing the laser energy on the epidermis. As the laser moves across the skin, the smoke from explosion of carbon particles is gently vacuumed up, exfoliating the skin and removing any debris in the pores. The treatment minimises pore sizes and the thermal effect of the laser beam stimulates collagen renewal. The heat produced also destroys P-acne which causes pimples, thus achieving acne control. Yes thank you very much! lol This is indeed what i need. The laser also helps exfoliate my clogged skin, and minimize pores. *beams*
During the launch, I also had the chance to learn about the Quadrostar ProYellow laser, for which FBS is the first clinic in Singapore to own this cutting edge technology. Really interesting – here Dr Chiam imparts its various uses.
Melasma, freckles,redness in skin, blood vessels and more and why this is more powerful than the dual yellow laser.
The treatments are also done in private, in a comfortable bright happy room
