Botox: Beyond Cosmetic purpose

Botox for Teeth Grinding: I Tried It, and Yes, It Works.

Fix Teeth Grinding

Many thanks to @aestheticscentralclinic and DR Ryan Tan. The traditional treatments for bruxism used to be mouth guards to soften the impact of the clenching, but with injection treatments, this has pretty much become the treatment of the past.

I have Bruxism (teeth grinding/ jaw clenching) it’s an unfortunate condition and individual like me even with mouth guard I would invariably wake up with agonizing jaw pain, headache, and dental issues. The habitual chewing of hard foods and snacks can result in a bulging muscle at the side of the jaw. This ‘square jaw’ appearance is further accentuated by the smaller facial structures of Asians.

Here are 3 picture to see the huge contrast and comparison after my treatment in just 3 weeks. Look at how visible and smaller my face become!
Dr. Ryan was very prompt to notice that one side of my jaw muscle is bigger and asked if I grind my teeth. WOW. Dr Ryan was really friendly and truly amazing like how he could pinpoint my bruxism problem in the first minute of consultation. Next, he was telling me I have a really nice nose (Au Natural) – that is a huge compliment coming from an aesthetic doctor okay!

Nevertheless, he told me that using botox – With just 2 simple injections, they are able to help you reduce the pain and inconvenience of bruxism. This works by reducing the strength of the muscle that causes bruxism so that the grinding is reduced significantly. Injections to reduce the strength of the masseter muscle are now the accepted form and mainstay of treatment for grinding of teeth at night, and effectively reduces headaches and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) aching.

Look at how fast the process is, and how professional Dr. Ryan is, it didn’t even hurt at all. You can check out more here: http://www.cosmeticsurgery.sg/face/non-surgical-square-jaw-reduction-singapore/

And it literally 1 stone killing 2 birds cause the nice side effect is that my jawline got leaner. My cheekbones were even more visible. I feel like my face is more proportionate.

Look at how much younger I look, and this is me just woke up without any filter, makeup or editing.

Price ranges from SGD400 – SGD1,200, dependent on the number of units used.
My experience:
+ No downtime
+ No residual pain
+ Done in 15min (including my consultation) + Without any marks or bruising
+ It’s been 3 weeks, I started to notice far less clenching
+ Contrary to popular belief that non-surgical face slimming and contouring only lasts 6 months, various studies in Korea show results to persist after 2 years and beyond

Looking at how slim and sharper my face look and no more aching from my jaw due to teeth grinding.

The actual results started to show in two weeks – and the best results were seen a month from my treatment which is now. This results in an attractive almond shaped face shape for the ladies and a youthful sleek look for the guys, which is highly noticeable. My colleague was telling me I look younger, so don’t be surprised when people comment that you look slimmer and younger!

The Power of Suits

I believe if you look your best, you feel better and you perform better.

What I’ll be sharing with you all today is a little gem that I found in heart of Singapore. I usually get my suits off the rack due to the convenience of it and my lack of knowledge in suit. As i move into the corporate world and that was when I realized how essential a tailor set of suits is. In business, it really is true that you never (or seldom) get a second chance to make a good first impression.

“When people say, ‘Wear your heart on your sleeve,’ you can take that advice in a very literal sense when it comes to grooming.”

There is something magical and powerful about suit. Isn’t it just another piece of clothing or style but why does it make such a significant difference? There is something about a man in a suit. There is something empowering about it. Women love to their men in suit, and men love to wear them. A man in a suit, represent a sophistication and class that he is making things happen, he is successful. That may not be the reality but it gives that perception.

MADE SUITS

Back to the gem that I found was this shop – https://www.made-suits.com/ Which is located 138 Robinson Road #02-09 Oxley Tower, Singapore, 068906

Benjamin, despite his young age, he knows what he is doing and he is really good at it. He not only shared with me the different types of suits, shirts and even casual wear like denim that is addressing both simplicity yet contemporary style that would suit majority of the audience out there.

The process is pretty straight forward, make an appointment with MADE SUITS. Then head down for 1st measurement – took my measurements to ensure I get a perfect fit. MADE SUITS also shared with me why is it important to get the right fit, for most of us if you are wearing blazer or suits, if the fit is wrong, any movement is restricted and shirts get un-tucked easily.

Next, choose your fabric with fully customizable options from colors to buttons to lining. You get to construct a masterpiece with a master craftsman who will guide you. For someone like me, who have zero knowledge, like all i know is – matching colour for your blazer and pants. But there are way more than just colour but the cutting, style, collars and finishing which I probably need like 10 posts in order to share all. Luckily, Benjamin was very patience with all my questions.

FUN FACT
The History of Suit, the wider the LAPEL, the more power and wealth you represent back then, but right now it more of personal preference and how it change the style and perception of the suit.

Came down for fitting to ensure the final piece is perfect. The whole process took about 2 weeks which is reasonable for the meticulous work and details put into it.

I chose something more casual yet modern, something that suit my personality. A blue stripe shirt with brown suit – cause i wanted the whole “OPPA” feel, and I shared with Benjamin what I am looking for, my budget and work restriction, so this is the final piece.
