Helping My Guardian Angel Turn Back the Hands of Time

Mother’s day is just around the corner and I had spent days mulling over the perfect present for my mom. She had been of great help in looking after my cheeky 6 months old baby ever since he was born.

Usually, a typical Mother’s day celebration for us would involve the family having a meal out at some nice restaurant. But that idea was growing stale. So this year, I had wanted to do things differently.

One night, I was watching my mother put my baby to sleep. And then it dawned upon me how the many months of babysitting & late nights had worn her out, causing her to look haggard and tired. My mother is someone who still enjoyed dressing up and looking good. So I was really touched by her sacrifices for her grandson and how it all was started to show on her face.

So I’ve been reading up articles on on non-invasive treatments such as Botulinum Toxin A. And that was when I thought of getting her a unique and special gift to regain her youthfulness; a Botulinum Toxin A session at Prive Clinic.

What you didn’t know about Botox at Aesthetics Hub

Did you know…

that Botox can Treat Acne Breakouts, Eliminate Large Pores, Reduce Sebum Production?

A plastic surgeon in Chicago injects directly into the skin to eliminate large pores, oil production and acne breakouts. He said that Botox prevents the production of the sebum, which in turn starves the bacteria that causes pimples.

Botox May Prove to Be Surprising Ally Against Depression

Botox is a wrinkle reducer. A study confirms that facial muscles do not simply broadcast people’s emotions, but are important for identifying and experiencing emotions which, in turn, interrupts the development and maintenance of negative emotions.

Sweaty Women Use Botox To Smell Good

The bad odour that accompanies sweating also puts a question mark on personal hygiene. Botox selectively blocks the activation of sweat glands and hence no sweat is released.

Did you know…

  you can make your Botox Lasts Longer by Taking Zytase before the Injections?

A Houston doctor said that since Botox is zinc dependent – they need zinc to work, he wondered what would happen if he “gave people zinc before their Botox injections. So, he combined a high dose of zinc with a phytase enzyme and Zytase was born. The drug is taken four days before and on the day of the Botox injection. The Botox’s effects last longer – meaning fewer shots and less money spent!

Did you know…

 you can inject Botox in your Feet so you can wear super high heels without feeling the pain?

A self-confessed shoeaholic has paid more than £300 to have a “Loub job” — fillers and Botox injected into her feet — so she can wear her favourite designer Louboutin stilettos without feeling any pain.

Aesthetics… Would you change the way you look?

Anyone recalls the movie ‘200 pound beauty’ where this overweight girl went through a major plastic surgery operation to emerge as a beautiful, hot lady? The lead is played by Korea actress Kim Ah-jung who is super pretty and even though she has undergone the knife to enhance her looks, it still appears so natural! Thumbs up for her surgeon.

So now it’s the golden question, what would you change about yourself physically if you could?

In the past, I was crazy over Ayumi Hamasaki and would die for her eyes but after seeing a certain famous blogger D*wn Y*ng’s blotched job where you can see the reds of the fleshy part inside her eyes…. Eeeew. No way!

I think I would love to slim down my jaw line as it’s very defined and square. I have tried botox which was sponsored by Neuglow. You can read about it HERE. Unfortunately, this procedure is not permanent. In fact, for a much slimmer jaw line, it’s recommended that you return every 6 months for another session. I just don’t have that kind of money… boohoo :(

The next thing I would like to try is probably to sharpen my nose. Maybe try fillers since they are non-invasive and temporary; lasting only 6-8 months. I’m still fine with my nose and find my jaw more of an issue. So this is probably a procedure I would like to try out for fun.

So how about you? Anyway, My Fat Pocket have started an Ask Doc discussion in our community. In this discussion, you can ask Dr Karen Soh (Prive clinic) about anything  related to aesthetics.

Dr Karen Soh is a friendly and nice lady whom I met recently for my Vitamin C & Glutathione Drip at Privé Clinic. You may read about my experience HERE

Neuglow BOTOX® Masseter Reduction Treatment

Jaw botox… Botox for square jaws… Botox jaw reduction…
blah blah blah and so on so forth.
There’re so many names for this procedure.

But anyway, apart from whitening jabs, I am saving up for BOTOX® masseter reduction treatment.
Since young, I’ve had this bad habit of chewing on ice cubes.
It’s bad for your teeth and your jaw muscles apparently.
Since now, I have a huge boxy face thanks to the excessive ice cube chewing.

However, thank goodness that with money almost anything can be resolved.
Presenting the “BOTOX® Masseter Reduction Treatment”.

Procedure done at Neuglow Clinic

ERROR IN DATE! After shot was taken 2 months+ later & NOT 1 month later

The entire BOTOX® masseter reduction treatment is quick and minimally painful.
And results would be more visible 6-8 weeks later.
Some doctors charge based on how many units of BOTOX® you’ll require.
While some charge on per jab basis.
So it’s best to clarify all these with your doctor(s)/clinic(s) before you decide on which one you’ll go to for your treatment.

Some last 6-9 months while some probably would last slightly longer maybe a year or two?
It all depends on how much BOTOX® was used initially and how you maintain it.
If you’re gonna be chewing on gum daily (or ice cubes for my case) then it won’t be long for your jaw shape to go back to square one. LOL!

Beauty of BOTOX:
– No anesthetic is required
– Treatment only takes about 10 minutes
– Discomfort is minimal & brief
– Resume normal activities immediately
– BOTOX effect takes place in 2 to 4 weeks (peak results in 2 to 3 months)
– Results last 6 to 12 months (sometimes longer depending on individual)
– Chewing & swallowing are not affected
– No permanent effects reported
– Achieve a beautiful facial contour

Cost usually range from $500 to $1500.


Maybelline Angelfit Pore Zero Base & How BOTOX® can reduce pore size

Where to buy? Watsons, Guardian, John Little
How much? UP $19.90

Photos of me using this makeup base.
I think my pores look horribly enlarged due to my overzealousness
with the Shills peel-off mask.

Typo: It should be Pore Zero & NOT Zero Pore
Photo taken 24/05

Personally, I think this one works better with liquid foundation than 2-way cake foundation.

As you can see, after applying the 2-way foundation, it made the pores appear even more visible.

My ratings are reflected on using the Angelfit Pore Zero Base with the Revlon Beyond Natural Liquid Foundation.


***NOTE: I know there seems to be a difference in my pore size from the 2 photos.
After taking those horrendous photos on 24/05 & realising how ugly my pores appeared.
I did a scrub using the Dermalogica Microfoliant, followed by a deep cleansing Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque & then Dainty Rose Sheet Mask.
This could have helped in making my pore size look smaller.

It’s quite a sad thing that pore size can’t be significantly reduced.
The most you can do is either minimize the appearance of it with the help
of skincare products.

If you want much more visible results, you’ll have to turn to BOTOX® which can be expensive and addictive. According to, BOTOX® is said to be able to treat skin conditions such as large pores, oily skin, and inflammation from acne.

“The injection of Botox into the skin actually causes the pores to constrict in size, which is a huge plus for anyone who has tried to reduce them in the past – there have always been different methods and applications to reduce pore size, but there is nothing topical that can be applied to the skin to reduce their appearance.”

So how does BOTOX® work for large pores?

According to NYC Facial Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Anil R. Shah:
“The Botox interacts with the tiny little muscle around the pore. These muscles don’t form wrinkles; they’re the same muscles that create goose bumps. The injection into the shallow layer of the dermis freezes the same tiny muscle so that the skin is now taut.”

I am VERY tempted but there’s so many other stuff I also wanna try out on an aesthetic clinic’s menu!
Of which I unfortunately can’t due to the lack of vitamin M. *Sigh*
But anyway, since there are cheaper alternatives to create an illusion of a flawless complexion. Let’s just stick to that for the time being :)

By the way, I’ve also update my ZA Pore Smoother review with photos.
