Calf reduction/Hifu treatment review @ Halley Medical Aesthetics

I finally found the time to pop by Halley Medical Aesthetics for my HIFU review. It has been 2 months since my first treatment and I was really nervous about the results.

I think I’m the first person who tried HIFU on the calves and I am worried that it doesn’t work well. I have like thousand of worries but I know eventually all I need to do is to look at the measurements and I will know if it works for me anot. Just a quick recap, HIFU uses focused ultrasound energy for fat reduction.

of course my mood became better after meeting with Dr. Terence and his assistant Khay. Khay is so friendly and lovely and Dr. Terence is always so cheerful and funny. lol!

After stepping onto the weighing scale, Dr. Terence proceed to measure my calves.

i was like internally chanting ‘please please please’..

Dr. Terence Tan then write down the measurements on the paper. Up to this point, I still don’t know my measurements.

 photo DSC01584_zpsrohvvvex.jpg

and when he’s done. He smiled at me and showed me my results! OMG look at the difference in the above photo!

My left calf from 22mm and 18mm has reduced to 15mm and 16mm.
My right calf from 22mm and 20mm has reduced to 19mm and 16mm!

Seems like the left side of my calf is working better than the right!

Dr. Terence Tan also showed me my before and after treatment photos for easier comparison! The photo on the right really looks smaller! Especially if I looked closely at the circled area! Even my muscle is more visible now!

Can you imagine my excitement?? I really want slimmer calves and when I see this actual reduction I am so happy! I can’t wait for my next treatment!

Mylife: How to treat fungal infection!

Your sway girl here got so many things to share with you. Other than today’s topic I wanna show you my toe xray too. That will be in another post.. let’s talk about fungus first.

Around late last year I got fungal infection on the feet. It started from a blister and developed into a nasty fungal infection.

I remembered the disgusting affected area and I was very depressed back then as it was so ugly and itchy. I have no idea where I got it from, probably from exploring too much.. I didn’t know it was fungal infection until my 3rd visit to the doctor.

Funny how the doctor can’t see that it is fungus. I mean even Simon knew it was but no doctor can confirm it until the 3rd. The doctor asked me to apply Gentrisone cream but it didn’t get better and so Simon asked me to try Zarin cream instead.

 photo IMG_8234_zpsovkcij9t.jpg

Zarin Cream: For the treatment of ringworm, athletes foot, white spots and fungal infections. 

I applied twice a day for almost a month and the spot is healed now. So if you are looking for something to treat the above mentioned, go get Zarin. You can get it at Watsons. It works.

And before I end this post. Do continue to apply the area even when it is healed for about a week or 2 to entirely kill it!

Anyone can get it. It spares no one. -_-

How my spine looked like… after my Spinal fusion surgery and also my Chiropractic review!

If you know me long enough, you should know I’ve had spinal fusion surgery done. It was a scary surgery but trust me, it is not as scary as liposuction.

And as requested, I am finally showing you my spine today.

So.. here you go!
 photo Spine xray 1_zpsxnyqsrzh.jpg

This is the implant inside my body. My spine was originally a ‘S’ shape spine.
It is not entirely straight now as you can see from the Xray..

 photo Spine xray 2_zpsvrwqepka.jpg

 photo Spine xray 3_zpsv5uhqyht.jpg

 photo Spine xray 4_zpso2seetmn.jpg

You know when I looked at this I actually find it very scary. I don’t know what will happen next time but for now I’m not gonna think so much and so far yet.

So to answer your question. Yes I am not that flexible anymore. I used to be so flexible last time. I can’t even do proper sit ups now. I used to be able to do 50situps in 1minute when I was still fat. But now I couldn’t even reach 30 in 1minute.

Anyway I also want to share with you my experience with Pinnacle Chiropractic at Simon Plaza. I went there last year because they came to my company and there was a promo whereby I just need to pay $40 for the consultation. JX and I went for our appointment, wanting to know more about our spines but ended up paying $150-199 to get our xray done at Radlink Toa Payoh. haha.

After the Xray, we went back to Pinnacle for our follow up and treatment, where we pay another $65-75 bucks. Spend alot of money but I must say the treatment is quite amazing! The doctor had to be super careful with me because of my spine but after the adjustment, I felt energized and my posture instantly becomes better!

If you want to know my package price (customized) just drop me an email!!

I’m not promoting them okay but I really feel good after the treatment. The reason why I didn’t continue is because I think I’m not ready to commit and I have no time to commit to the treatments/adjustments too. You have to commit to the care plan that the chiropractor planned for you which I think is too difficult for me. Too many things for me to work on now. Maybe I will in the near future but I’m also quite worried about the implant in my body. zzz

The chiropractor also told me that I am actually putting additional stress on the other parts of the spine. 🙁 This is probably why my neck and head is always aching. sigh..

So anyway you know the drill, just drop me an email if you want to know more. See you in my next post! 🙂

Till the next time people! 😀

HIFU treatment at Halley Medical Aesthetics for my CALVES!

Check out my video over here. 🙂

5 months ago, I had High Intensity Focus Ultrasound (HIFU) treatment done on my thighs at Halley Medical Aesthetics (check out the post here) and I was really happy with the results. Normally people need at least 3 sessions to see the difference but it only took me 1 to feel and notice.

 photo claireHIFU1_zpskgmaknky.png

Dr. Terence Tan also commented that my inner thighs look better now! He was amazed as well and we both know that it would be even better if I were to continue with a few more sessions. But being the impatient me I told Dr. Terence Tan that I would like to try HIFU on my calves instead.

 photo halley_claireconsult-25_zpsthhgxu6o.jpg

On the review plus consultation day, Dr. Terence Tan measured my calves to make sure that I have sufficient fats for HIFU.

 photo halley_claireconsult-18_zpszsf50rzd.jpg

After confirming that it is suitable for me, we finally arranged on a date to kickstart the treatment!

The appointment date itself was on 30th November, and I was so excited for it! I really want to see myself having smaller calves and I was looking forward to the treatment! Women are all like that, once their done getting upset with one part of their body, they complained about other parts. I am a woman, and so now my problem is my calves.

Like how it works the previous time, Dr. Terence Tan first draw markings on my calves.
 photo DSC_3367_zpsdlfrjopf.jpg

These are the places where all the fats cells are going to be destroyed.

The nurse then proceed to apply numbing cream on my calves.

 photo DSC_3402_zpst2znk0mb.jpg

 photo DSC_3426_zpsynctmjce.jpg

About 20 minutes later, Dr. Terence Tan walked in and asked if I’m ready for the treatment. Of course I am I said! Even though I still remember that this treatment comes with some discomfort too. lol!
 photo DSC_3547_zpscgyg8a89.jpg

Even though I have done this before I’m still nervous! 

Don’t worry about the discomfort people, Dr. Terence Tan always crack jokes and try to distract you with his jokes. It works by the way. It is also comforting to be treated by a doctor who personally understands the challenges that people face when it comes to weight loss. He himself battled with weight problems, and he even has a personal blog to talk about how he continues to keep his weight down.

 photo DSC_3437_zpsk3nrwb8q.jpg

Dr. Terence Tan measure my calves again before the treatment.
 photo DSC_3456_zpsd5yzq16d.jpg

and finally the HIFU (High Intensity Focus Ultrasound) treatment starts now!

 photo DSC_3488_zpswuyq9mdn.jpg

HIFU on the calves is faster than the thighs because the area is smaller and for fat reduction the size of the depth of the ultrasound energy used is different too. He only used the 7mm probe this time as there isn’t enough fat in the calf area to go deeper than that. What this means is that ultrasound energy is focused directed at exactly 7mm beneath my skin surface to target and remove the fat cells. This technology makes HIFU a no downtime treatment as it doesn’t damage the surface of our skin at all.

When the device is placed on my calves, the feeling is like many needles poking deep into my legs but the discomfort is bearable.

 photo DSC_3459_zpshj4vtl1h.jpg

I think the level of discomfort for both the thighs and calves is similar. Just that the treatment for calves is so much faster! The whole session only took about half an hour!

Result will be only be seen 1-3 months later as the body needs time to eliminate the fat cells. To see significant results, multiple sessions are recommended. The treatment interval is 1 month apart so it’s very easy for busy people like us.  I am patiently waiting to see mine and I can’t wait to do the treatment!

 photo Capture_zpscdr9hv3n.jpg

Once again, Thank you Dr. Terence Tan and Halley Medical Aesthetics for helping me and I really hope that this treatment will help my calves to become slimmer. If it works well for me I will definitely share it with you!!

[S-series] Our Dinner Sessions: Olivia & Co Compass One

Hi,

We’re back at Compass One again. Well of course we’re always here, we live in this town.

So now we visited Olivia & co, the latest cafe in the mall.

 photo IMG_5130-2_zps82v8vhjr.jpg

Retro themed decorations everywhere with quirky knick knacks like that petro pump thingy, cute isn’t it?

Well cute as it is, we’re here for the food, its dinner time and we’re freaking starving! Olivia & co has two outlets. The first I think was at Suntec City, of which… I did not visit. What do you expect me to say? I don’t usually dine in a cafe, tonight was something once in a blue moon. Olivia & co serves food from all over the world, from Asia to Europe to America, whatever you feel like having, you can have something from somewhere around the world. Wow that was confusing. But the fact is that we had pastas.. and a flat white (I can’t help it).

 photo IMG_5132-2_zpstuirxi6q.jpg

 photo IMG_5134-2_zpse9bynx1a.jpg

This is the Laksa Pasta. Large juicy prawns served in the spicy laksa msg cream is awesome and jelat too. As always, laksa always give me that explosive-spicy-salty-sweet taste at the first mouthful, I was happily eating the first half of it till the thick creamy taste made me jelat.. 3/5

 photo IMG_5136-2_zpsnw44opt9.jpg

Florentine Carbonara was really good though, I only had a few mouthfuls because Claire couldn’t finish it. Typical of my rubbish-bin role in our marriage. It was creamy and salty like how a good carbonara should have been. My mind screamed ‘delicious!!’ 3 times because I only had 3 mouthfuls before I finished it. After that I even lick the plate clean.. Ok that’s way too gross, of course I didn’t do that, I just scraped every single drop of the sauce off the plate with my spoon. 4/5

The menu courtesy of Claire:

 photo IMG_5125-2_zpsdkcqmdi1.jpg

Will I come back again? I certainly would, on one of those days I feel rich. Because normal days I’ll eat an average meal an average Singaporean couple would go for. Olivia & Co is worth a visit, whether you wanna fill your stomach or just wanna chill out. Since its along my way home, I bet I’ll be coming back again real soon.

SDWC: Jung Da Yeon S line Fit Aerobic fitness workout!

I am constantly finding new workouts to do. One should never stick to only one workout. Your body and muscles will get use to it and the workout that you’re doing will slowly lose its magic on your body.

With all the food tastings lately, I decided to find a workout that can target my waist. Not that my hula hoop is not helping, it’s just that I needed something more intense. Actually I don’t eat alot too when I attend food tastings. Well you should know who I push my food to. hahaha. The poor person has now gain weight.. It’s good for him to gain abit of weight also lah. :p

So this new workout that I’ve been trying is Jung Da Yeon’s S LINE FIT workout! I did this that day and I had a really bad muscle ache. Other than my stomach, i think it helps to tone my arms too. Whole body was so sore after that.

This is the video and I highly recommend you to try this. LOL. Go try it and let me know how you feel!! 😀

Till the next people! 😀

*SDWC stands for Slim Down with Claire if you don’t already know.

Yeast infection vs Urinary tract infection (UTI). My experience + home remedy.

I always share things with you. I share my weightloss journey, I share my spinal surgery, I share my lipo journey, my endoscopy procedure and now this. Yeast infection and Urinary tract infection.

You know I really like to write about my life here. Simon might not like it but I don’t mind because I really treat this space as a diary. =P

Well yes today’s topic is kinda awkward but I think it is good for me to share. Especially for you girls who never got the above 2 infections before, all the more you need to read this post.

So what is Yeast Infection and Urinary tract infection? 

Vaginal yeast infections, also known as candidiasis, are a common female condition. Yeast infections are caused by the fungus Candida. This fungus is associated with intense itching, swelling, and irritation.
Source: http://www.healthline.com/health/vaginal-yeast-infection#Overview1

UTI (Urinary Tract Infection), develop when bacteria enter the urethra and travel up into the bladder.
Source: http://www.healthline.com/health/bladder-infection-treatments

I got both of them before and it is definitely not fun. It’s uncomfortable, sucky and depressing. You will experience pain for UTI, but yeast infection? It’s another story. It is disgusting and extremely itchy. You know that hokkien word, ‘gao wei’? Yes super gaowei!!!

They say once you get UTI, it’s easy for you to get it again. I think my highest record was 3 times a year. I didn’t get for this and last year and I am hoping for it to stay this way. As for yeast infection, it happened late last year. Very funny why so many things start to happen once I hit mid 20s, it’s like my body is not mine anymore.

Yeast Infection is super disgusting by the way, other than the itch, your vjj will swell and you will have thick yellowish greyish discharge that smells like bread (yeast). Yes I am serious. Can you imagine that? The discharge, the itch, the discomfort? Although it is not painful, it is mentally torturing.

I don’t know why I am so unlucky, honestly. I am clean and hygienic. I am quite ocd when it comes to my body.

Anyway I didn’t see a doctor because I was embarrassed. It’s such a private thing and I have no idea how to tell the doctor. And so I went to google to seek help and I found out that probiotics will help to get rid of yeast infection. Some of the methods are quite gross where they ask you to apply yogurt on your vjj, or IN your vjj but I did nothing of those. What I did was just drinking Yakult or Vitagen or any other probiotic drinks and it a.c.t.u.a.l.l.y works!

It didn’t take me long to get rid of that infection, about 2 days? and I’m back to normal again. I think my condition is not that bad yet that’s why I could recover so fast.

Yeast infection is likely to act up just before or after your menstrual period so during this period you might want to drink more yakult/vitagen. 

As for Urinary tract infection. This is not as disgusting as yeast but it is super uncomfortable. Depending on how bad your condition is, you may see blood when you pee. You constantly have the urge to pee but either there is nothing or only a few drops when you go to the toilet. If you experience something like this, please see a doctor immediately. If the bacteria travel up to the kidney it will be too late!

Doctor will give you antibiotics for sure and also some other medications. During this time when you pee, it will be in a orangey red color. Another way to speed up the recovery process is to drink lots of water and cranberry juice. But this doesn’t stop you from going to the doctor, remember that.

UTI takes about 4-5 days to recover so you really have to be very patient during this period.

I think I’m done with this post, for more information please consult google. Hope this short post helps a little for people who don’t know what the 2 conditions are. Please also note that this is solely based on my own experience. My home remedy is to help you feel better but doesn’t stop you from visiting the doctor. 🙂

I sincerely hope that you don’t get them too. *prayforyou*

If you’re wondering what is Fun: Fun is a brilliant innovation combining soap, shampoo, bubble bath, and malleable toy into a single roll.

SDWC – Does rice make me fat?

You know, I don’t really like rice.. And not eating rice doesn’t really make me feel hungry too.
BUT there is one thing I can’t resist.

QQ rice. 

I really don’t know why I like QQ rice so much.There was this period of time when I was literally eating QQ rice everyday, 2 snack rolls a day for about a month. This was around last year when I was chubby. :p

I didn’t think so much about the calories because QQ rice is healthy and high in fibre! They have so many different types of rice grain, the purple rice, red rice, brown rice, wheat five rice, wheat germ brown rice and mixed grains.

Other than rice, they also have porridge, sandwiches and drinks. There is always something for me to try or mix and match.

But I fail to realize that it is rice, and rice is carbohydrates. So no matter how healthy it is, I am still consuming about 550-600 calories (2 snack rolls worth) for lunch. And to make it even worse, I enjoyed my rice roll with chicken floss. How sinful..

I totally sound like I am promoting QQ, but no I am not, I just like them and when I like something I blog about them.

I won’t crave for rice unless my thing is coming. And when that hits me, I come to my favourite place, get my favourite chicken floss large snack roll and my favourite purple rice soya drink!

This drink is very tasty but always give me a bad bloated stomach.

Anyway, what I am trying to say is, Rice don’t exactly make you fat. Yes if you eat alot of rice you might get fat, but this applies to every kind of food too. (fruits included of course!)

I always believe in moderation and one thing that I learn after so many years of calories counting is that, no matter how clean your diet is, over eating on ‘clean food’ can still change the numbers on the scale.

For myself, I believe in portion control and calorie counting and I am pretty proud of it because that is how I managed to maintain my weight.

So what about you? How do you control or monitor your diet? And anybody loves QQ rice here?? 😀
