Filler Treatment at Halley Medical Aesthetics

For those who skipped the previous consultation post with Halley Medical Aesthetics , I strongly suggest that you read the first post, about the initial consultation, to learn more about some important information that can help you learn more before going ahead with facial enhancement procedures. 

So here I am, back for the actual filler treatment!
In fact, I’m excited and glad that I went ahead with Dr. Terence Tan’s recommendations. Dr. Tan recap the last consultation session a little and he also let me know the treatment process.

In this blogpost, I’ll be sharing my Filler Treatment process.

He would be using Juvederm Voluma, Juvederm Volift, and Juvederm Vobella on the following areas on my face:
– Midface / Mid-cheek area
– Tear trough
– Marionette lines

What Dr. Tan would be doing is face shaping and contouring with dermal fillers.

He explained that this treatment will add dimension to my facial features and add volume to areas where it is lacking. Not only will this help me look more photogenic, it will also make me look less tired at the same time.

He explained that as people age, we lose facial volume and bone mass, which leads to a more hollow, sunken look in the cheek area. So by plumping up my mid-face area, not only will the fillers enhance my feminine features, it will also give me a more youthful look!

We started the treatment with the application of medical anesthetic cream on the treatment areas.

The anesthetic cream works well. It took approximately 20minutes before we proceeded with the filler treatment! 

Dr. Tan used his “sandwich technique” for fillers.

For certain areas, Dr. Tan used this method which involves injecting Juvederm Voluma, which is a firmer filler below for lift first before injecting Juvederm Volift or Juvederm Vobella, which are softer fillers to smooth out the fine wrinkles. This will result in a more natural look.

Just before injecting the filler, the clinic assistant placed an ice pack on the treatment area to numb it further. This was to make sure that I have a more comfortable experience during treatment.

He started the treatment by placing the fillers in my tear trough and mid-face area. This is to smoothen out the fine lines and help make my dark circles less obvious. The fillers for the mid-face area will also plump up my cheek area as there is a lack of volume in that area due to my crescent moon-shaped face.

Next, he treated my marionette lines, which are the lines that run downwards from the corners of my mouth. Marionette lines can make a person look old so by inserting fillers there, he is giving me more youthful look!

For his filler treatment, Dr. Tan used a micro-cannula or “Magic Needle” for injecting the dermal filler. He explained that the Magic Needle is not actually a needle but a cannula. Not only does this distribute the filler more evenly as it is blunt and extremely pliable, it will also slide under my skin with minimal discomfort.

You can read more about his method for the micro-cannula here: http://blog.halleymedicalaesthetics.com/the-art-of-injecting-dermal-fillers/

After injecting the fillers, we took another set of photos to compare how I look before and after.

As Dr. Tan was going through the difference, I’m amazed that it actually does make a difference to my overall appearance and face shape. It did address my concerns and the result turned out to be really natural!

I’ve placed the pictures side by side for your references:

Before: Left photo, After: Right photo

Front view

The result: Definitely more symmetrical and my face is less long and looks rounder! (Which is what I want to achieve because I have a crescent moon face.) I never realised that my mid-face area is a little ‘flat’ and that with some fillers, he was able to make my face look less like a crescent moon.

 

Left Side View:

The result: The fillers gave more dimensions to my face.

Right Side View:

The Result: My features look more enhanced and by filling in my undereye and mid-face areas, I look less tired and rejuvenated. The marionette line coming down the right corner of my mouth is now severely reduced too.

When it comes to facial contouring with fillers, Dr. Tan believes in injecting just enough and not over doing it. The result is subtle but I think I really do look better after the filler treatments!

ALSO, I HAVE ALREADY PREDICTED SOME OF THE FAQS THAT YOU GUYS WOULD ASK ME:

Is it painful? 

Overall, I feel the discomfort level is mostly 2/10. Honestly, with the anesthetics cream, ice pack, and Magic Needle, it’ll provide enough comfort. What’s more, the Juvederm brand of filler contains lidocaine, which is an anesthesia, which makes the experience a comfortable one.

How do I feel after the treatment, are there downtime? 

As mentioned in the consultation post, there is no downtime! I am able to feel the fillers,  however, there are no marks left behind after the treatment. Basically, no one will know you have had fillers done unless you tell them. 

Am I happy with the procedures? 

I definitely am! It helped me A LOT in shortening my make up process. The fillers in the tear trough and mid-face area definitely made me look less tired, and this means I do not have to apply so much concealer. I feel MUCH MORE confident knowing that my face is more symmetrical now. It definitely does help in boosting my self esteem! 

Is this a plastic surgery procedure? 

Definitely not! There was no cutting or incision with any surgical knife and there was no stitching. There was also no downtime! It’s far from it. The best part is that I still look like me! I only did some mini enhancements to help me become a better version of me. It’s definitely a different procedure! 

Well, if you’re having trouble with your imperfections and would like to do minor adjustments to your facial appearance, do not hesitate to go for a consultation! You never know how these small changes can help you in your everyday life.

I personally think that Dr. Tan is really experienced and skillful and you should look for him when it comes to facial enhancement treatments and he definitely give the best advice! 

Once again, a big thanks to Dr. Tan for taking good care of my face!

Lymphatic Body Massage: CHRYSALIS SPA SINGAPORE (Amk Hub)

It’s been awhile since I’ve had a massage and my body has been deprived of exercises due to a busy schedule.

Recently, I kick start my day with a pampering session of Lymphatic Massage, a technique used to drain waste fluids from damaged area in your body. This is exactly what I need, a good detox!

SHORT INTRODUCTION ABOUT CHRYSALIS SPA

Chrysalis Spa’s niche is in its unique and exotic therapies and products. This very tranquil, Asian & Western hybrid concept spa offers unique treatments from East Asia, such as Asian massages, exotic body scrubs and mud wraps.

Recently they have incorporated TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) treatments into their service offerings. Chrysalis Spa is truly and urban-escapade that provides professional health and beauty treatments to both men and women for essential body maintenance.

What is Lymphatic Massage?

Lymphatic drainage aids in the drainage of the lymph, which is essential as it helps to carry waste material from all parts of the body back to the heart.

The massage uses a small amount of pressure with specific rhythm and circular actions to increase the lymph flow. It is also carried out by using meridian points, which is also known as acupuncture points where energy is collected.

Is this Type of Massage suitable for everyone?

This massage is suitable for both healthy individual and also for people who are under medical needs.

Individual who undergo surgery can do this massage as it aids in healing. It regenerates the tissues and cells to lessen the scarring at the incision area, trim down the swelling and detoxify the body. However, it can only be done about 6 weeks or more after the surgery with approval from the doctor.

The massage also improve breastfeeding for women who experience complications that is usually caused by improper baby latching, sore nipples, plugged ducts and engorgement. These causes pain and discourages mothers that would lead them to give up breastfeeding. By massaging, it reduces the swelling of engorgement and plugged ducts. When these swelling are solved, it will benefit both mother and child.

For healthy individuals, it not only allows you to relax, it has benefits such as reducing pain level in the body, stress and improve general well-being.

My Experience at CHRYSALIS SPA 

When I enter the spa, the overall vibe is still okay, pretty normal. But when I entered the couple room, I become so excited! The room is beautiful, comes with a tub and a sauna room. I felt entirely detached from the shopping mall, as if I’m at batam, bali or somewhere out of SG. Never did I know that such a place existed in a neighbourhood shopping mall.

The masseuse that attended to me is great! She filled me in with details, as she massaged me. (I was given a set of disposable underwear to change into, as it would be an all off oil massage session.)

She also told me specifically why this part hurts, and how I can massage a little here and there on my own to prevent blockage, especially the sides of waist, to reduce fats!

 

The whole purpose of Lymphatic Massage is for detox and drainage. Therefore, I felt pain everywhere cause there’s blockage in my system, which is bad for health!

Pointers to take note: You will feel some body ache, as if you had jog after a long time and had muscle aches the day after. But it is perfectly normal because the massage helped to clear the blockage which will eventually help improve your blood flow and circulation.

Overall, I rate this massage session 10/10!

Being constantly cared for, I felt so comfortable and lost track of time.

I definitely LOVE the ambience of this place and wouldn’t mind coming back for more sessions!

Facial Enhancement Consultation at Halley Medical Aesthetics

Recently, I went for a consultation at Halley Medical Aesthetics to see what can be done to improve my facial appearance.

The consultation is done with Dr. Terence Tan and the session turns out very well because he is both friendly and knowledgeable. He is able to immediately point out the problems that I’m facing and even make good guesses of which features are bothering me.

From my vague understanding before the consultation, facial enhancements can really do wonder, but it takes a real face-to-face consultation with an aesthetics doctor to determine what can be done to my face, then listing the different options available, and eventually, choosing the ones that delivers the results that I wish to achieve.

My biggest insecurities are mainly my dark eye circles and my crescent shaped face that caused my jaw to be uneven. For those who know me before, I used to have a slight underbite jaw and uneven teeth, which is really unsightly. However, I have already fixed the problem with braces, but my jaw is still slightly uneven! It’s been a issue for me because it affects my self esteem at times, wishing that I can be prettier.

Other smaller issues that i wish to eliminate are my moles and freckles. I have always dreamed of a cleaner face, without so many spots.

Initially, Dr. Tan discuss with me on the possibilities of removing the moles from my face. He mentioned that the smaller ones can be removed via laser treatments (It might take a few session). However, the bigger mole has to be surgically removed, which might leave a scar. Therefore, I have decided not to touch the mole above my mouth. Anyway, it is not too big of a concern for me.

Next, Dr. Tan suggested to remove the pigmentation that is on my left upper cheek. He said that he noticed it straight away, and guessed that it would definitely leave a deep impression for anyone that sees my face. And…. he is right! This pigmentation has been there since my primary school days and I thought it was a birth mark! It is definitely obvious and people did notice it on me. I will be glad to remove this pigmentation!

Lastly, Dr, Tan tackled my biggest imperfection, the uneven chin. In fact, Dr. Tan had gone the extra mile, to suggest the possibility of injecting Fillers on certain parts of my face to help me improve my overall appearance.

As seen in the picture, Dr Tan mentioned that he can insert a combination of Juvederm Fillers to rejuvenate my face and enhance my facial features. They include Juvederm Volbella, Juvederm Volift and Juvederm Voluma. The fillers will be inserted in the tear trough (undereyes) to lift the dark circles and eliminate the tired look.

It will also be used to fill up the lines that run down from the corners of my mouth (marionette lines) as well as the side of my chin to restore volume loss and even out my uneven jawline so as to give me a more attractive facial profile.

For those who are unaware, the Juvederm Fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance that can be found in your body to help hydrate and add volume to your skin. That is why hyaluronic acid is very commonly used in filler treatments and is definitely safe and lasting. Halley Medical Aesthetics also uses the JUVEDERM brand of fillers because it is proven to provide long lasting results.

Some FAQS that i asked Dr. Tan as well:

Will it hurt?

Dr. Tan uses a “Magic Needle” which is actually not a needle but a really thin and flexible micro-cannula. Numbing cream will be applied as well to administer the aesthetics process. The Juvederm Filler also contains lidocaine, which is an anesthesia to numb the area during treatment. The process will definitely be bearable!

Is there downtime?

There will not be any downtime at all! No one will notice that you did anything unless you tell them in specific or wait for them to spot the difference!

Will i see the difference immediately?

Yes you will! but it’s so natural so strangers will never know you did anything to your face!

How long can these last?

It should last between 1-2 years, which differs between the type of fillers used. Sometimes, lifestyle and the quality of your skin affects the lifespan of the treatment too.

Any post treatment care tips?

No alcohol for the day, and also, avoid massaging your face for the next 24 hours. Other than that, everything else is fine!

After a detailed consultation, i have decided to go ahead with injecting fillers and to laser off the “birthmark” as well as some of my moles.

If you wish to find out more on the actual procedures, do look out for my next blogpost! I’ll blog about the entire process with pictures!

If you have any facial features or imperfections that you are unhappy with, or even affects your self esteem ALOT, why not go for a quick consultation with Dr Tan to find out what can actually be done. It might be as simple as mine, to simply inject fillers! Everyone deserves to feel good and look good.

Thank you for the consultation Dr. Tan!

Korean Beauty Cosmetics: W. Lab is here in Singapore!

Yessss, W.LAB  is finally here in Singapore!

W.Lab is a Korean cosmetic brand that emphasis on the use of natural ingredients and lesser chemical. It’s no wonder how this k brand has won our heart with their extensive range of makeup and skincare products.

Early this April, W.Lab held a launch party at the Bella K Beauty House, a premium Korean hair salon, with an allocated in house nail salon, Aresa Nails, to pamper us girls further!

I had a great time at the party and brought home a whole big bag of goodies to try!

Spoiled with choices I must say, here are the goodies that I’ve received from W.Lab.

The W.Lab Makeup and skincare range consist of:

W.LAB Blooming Pocket Shadow Palette (5 matte & 5 highlighter shades)

Perfect for creating warm/smokey summer look, I personally love this palette  so much!

 

Here’s a swatch of the colors, see those glittery shades? These colors are perfect for creating light, glamourous eyelooks!

W.LAB Flower Lip and Cheek Kit( 6 shades), W.LAB Color Master Cover Kit ( 6 concealer shades)

There are 6 different shades of red/pink in the Lip & Cheek Kit and the texture of the pigments are not too heavy so they don’t leave your skin/lip sticky or greasy.

I also love the concealers that come in 6 different shades! With the green covering redness, purple covering yellowness, a lightly formulated shade being the highlighter, a darker contour shade and the rest concealing your dark circles well enough.

What I love most is certainly the size of the palettes which makes it so easy and convenient to travel with!

W.LAB BLING BLING cheek Blusher

I think this compact blusher is really pretty as it comes with different shades of pink. I especially love the top part because it’s highlighter really shines well! However, if you’re looking for a stronger blush, you might have to use the Flower Cheek kit and then stroke these Bling Bling last because they give a rather natural healthy glow finishing.

W.LAB Daily Pocket Shadow Palette (8 shades)

The Pocket Daily Palette comes with 1 eye base, 2 brown shade and 5 glitter shades. It’s perfect for the daily use and convenient to bring around!

W.LAB Velvet Color Stick, Color Up Tint, One Day Henna Tint

Like I said, spoilt with choices, I was given 3 different type of lippies to try!

I love the velvet one! It has a creamy crayon texture and the color turns out really pigmented! If you’re someone who likes tint, you can try the other 2 range which is really lasting as well!

W.LAB Sebum Out Range (Highly recommended!!)

– Consists of Peel Off Pack, Finish Pact and Finish Powder

The Peel off Pack is great! I have tried! it’s not painful and effectively pulls out dirt and blackheads.

Same goes, The Sebum Out finish pact and powder is amazing!!!

Especially in hot countries like Singapore, we are most afraid to perspire in our makeup. The finish pact and powder helps correct our skintone and sebum out all surfaces on our skin to prep our face for a long lasting finish. Our makeup can now stay fresh all day long!

W.LAB Black Kill Range

The Black kill range consists of mainly pore cleaner and tightening pack. And the brush of the pore cleaner works really well with your pore cleaning! You can use it daily or once every 2 days.

W.LAB Milk Protein Range

Consists of cleansing Foam, Cleansing Balm and Milk Bubble Body Scrub

I love milk cleansing products because while effectively cleansing your face, the milk nourishes your skin at the same time! Same goes to these Milk protein range? Smells good, feels good!

W.LAB White Holic (Quick Whitening Cream)

It’s the trend now to use whitening cream that can brighten up your face instantly and this product is certainly taking over the market! If you still want to look good without using any foundation or cushion pacts, simply spread these over your face for an instant lift!

W..LAB Mask Series

– Water Beam, Honey Beam, Egg Pore Mask

W.LAB Water Cushion Pact and W.LAB Blossom White Cushion Pact

There are actually 6 types of cushion pact, but I’m given 2 range to try!

I personally find the Blossom White more to my liking ( I have combination skin) but the water pact is indeed more moisturizing

Alright as a makeup junkie, I am really excited to play with these goodies and therefore, Here’s a Makeup of the day #MOTD that I have done up with the W.Lab products:

Below is a mini guide through process to create this endless summer sweet warm look 🙂

Products used:

FACE: SEBUM OUT FINISH PACT, BLOSSOM WHITE CUSHION- 21 Blossom Light

Girls, you’ll HAVE TO GET THIS.

The sebum out finish pact is a GEM (yes it literally contains gem complex powder)! After the usual skincare routine, I apply this sebum out pact all over my face to create a smooth setting before applying the Cushion pact. This product amazingly smoothens my skin, even uneven or rough areas like the sides of my nose, and all over my forehead area.  This product can reduce sebum secretion, and provide skin texture correction and pore care immediately.

CONCEALER: COLOR MASTER COVER KIT (6 shades)

This concealer palette gives us variety, which is professional. The purple shade covers yellowness, and the green covers redness. The other shades of brown covers blemishes and acne. The lighter shade works like a highlighter and the dark brown works like contour.

EYE: POCKET SHADOW PALETTE- DAILY

This pocket palette comes with 1 Base Shade, 2 Brown Shades & 5 Glitter Colors and in silky-smooth texture! And i love the colors because they’re my usual! You can either go orangey-light or smokey brown.

I’ve created a Summer Coral, fun and sweet eye look.

First, I apply the Eye base(1). Then, I use the Bright Peach(3) on the inner lid, and Shine Coral(4) on the outer lid. In between blends, I use Shade Brown(7).  Followed by the Highlighter shade(2) on the inner eye corner and the Mocha Brown(8) to define my outer lower lid to make my eyes wider and more awake.

CHEEKS: BLING BLING CHEEK- Pink, LIP & FLOWER CHEEK KIT (6 shades)

I can’t even… these BLING BLING CHEEK blusher is such a darling! In a single small compact, it comes in 3 different shades of pink and 1 highlighter shade. I can conveniently apply my blusher together with the highlighter shade on my upper cheek!

Tips: I even use the highlighter on my nose bridge!

Next, for me, I like my cheeks blushy pink, so I applied the rose pink (2) shade and spread it evenly on the apples of my cheeks for a slightly more pigmented blush.

LIPS: LIP & FLOWER CHEEK KIT

Same palette, multiple usage!

Now, I used the palette to create gradient lips by applying rose pink(2) on my whole lip and the dark red(6) shade in my inner lips.

My look is now complete!

Hope ya all like the look that I’ve created!:) There are too many products for me to try and I’ll be doing more reviews of the products in time to come!

Where to get them?

W.Lab products can now be found in Sasa Singapore, Aresa, Zalora and Lazada websites. Go get them now and transform into the kpop look!

Thank you for having me W.Lab &  Team MyFatPocket!<3

 

Singapore Hair Salon J & J Hair Identity: New Hair color with Natulique Hair Dye [Katong]

I love my NEW HAIR COLOR! It’s nothing fancy, but it’s one of the most chio ash brown achieved without bleaching my hair.

Recently, I visited J & J Hair Identity, Katong Hair Salon.

I love the ambience of this hair salon! To begin with, they’re located in a relatively new mall, therefore it’s not crowded, and rather quiet.

 

If you’re someone who just want to do your hair on an off day in peace, you’ll definitely love it here! The salon’s entrance is beautifully decorated with leaves and its warm lighting made it welcoming.

I especially love it’s rather monochrome color scheme, not the extreme black and white kind, but the greyish walls which made this place very good for photos, and of course, to complement your new haircut!

The objectives of the day is to change my hair color. So i dyed my hair ash brown.

J & J Hair identity uses NATULIQUE hair range, which the hair dye contains certified organic ingredients and is an ECOCERT certified hair care!

If you’re wondering what’s the difference between normal hair dyes and organic hair dyes, Organic hair dyes are actually very much less harmful for your hair.

The benefits of using NATULIQUE Hair colors are as following:
– 100% Ammonia free
– 100% Lauryl Sulfate free
– 100% Parabens Free
– Gives 100% Grey hair coverage
– Derives from 98.02% natural sources
– Has a pleasant smell
– made with natural ingredients
You can read more about it at the NATULIQUE webpage: http://www.natulique.com/

The process:

Here, this is a before picture, I haven’t been doing my hair for awhile.

After letting the hair color rest for about 30 minutes, i proceed to wash my hair. It’s nice that they did a head massage for me too, super relaxing!

Next up, they did a hair treatment for me. And it’s the first time i’ve seen a salon using a “hand gun” to spray steam on your hair for the hair treatment. It lasted for around 10-15 minutes.

Very much pampered, and i actually love the final hair color!

 

It’s actually an ash color like the pic below!

My hair stylist’s name is Shine.

You can look for him for hair services! Once again, a very pleased customer walking out of the Hair Salon.

This is the color that I did, without bleaching at all! My hair is still very silky smooth, and not drying all thanks to the NATULIQUE Dye!

 

J & J Hair Identity is a Hair Salon in Singapore, located at Katong Square Mall, #02-11.

Thank you again Samplestore SG for the collaboration!

Get a vitamin-infused formula for your face now! Bourjois Healthy Mix Anti-Fatigue Foundation & Concealer.

A lasting foundation that is also healthy for your skin?

Comes to being health conscious, I’m sure many of us are aware that taking vitamins is good for your health, which leads to good skin, good hair, and a healthy body.

And when it comes to skincare, most of us thought that being thorough in cleansing your makeup, and the basic toner-essence-serum-moisturiser routine is more than sufficient.

No one actually thought of this theory: Since foundation, bb cream and make up are harmful for our skin( Because it clogs our pores the entire day and some are so dry and flaky) , the more we should get foundations that are less harmful and more moisturising for our face!

I’m glad to be introduced to the Bourjois Healthy Mix Anti-Fatigue Foundation & Concealer.

Firstly, thank you Bourjois for sending these to me in such a sweet packaging!

The new Vitamin-infused formula is amazing and gives me a flawless finish!

The new blend of vitamins includes:

Vitamin C: Anti-fatigue Effect- Looks fresher and rested.

Vitamin E: Anti-oxidant Action- Natural Luminous Skin.

Vitamin B5: Revitalising Action- Reveal Radiance within.

I gave the foundation and concealer an efficacies test!

Okay, my experiment (Part 1). This is me without any makeup on. (Below)

This is me with the foundation on, and applying concealer. (Below)

Tadah! The end product of applying with Bourjois! (Below)

My complexion is smoother, and all my freckles, pimples/blemishes are well hidden! I’m most happy with the fact that my dark circles magically disappeared, and that my undereyes are so smooth unlike other concealer that creases!

Okay, Trying out (Part 2) the Second time.

Overall I found the Bourjois Healthy Mix Anti-Fatigue Foundation much more long-lasting than the other foundations that I own. I’m a BB/CC cushion pact person, but this foundation is so light weight that I find it comfortable to have it on my skin for the entire day!

The glow that it adds to my face is undeniable! I look much less fatigue and tired looking, which is the whole point of putting on makeup!

Most importantly, it is said to gave us all day 24hr hydration and maximum comfort. Side note, it’s semi-matte as well? After a whole day of work, my face didn’t feel oily at all, and at it’s minimum at my T zone area.

The Bourjois Healthy Mix Anti-Fatigue Foundation comes in 6 Ultra-fresh Shades, Light Vanilla, vanilla, Light Beige, Beige, Dark Beige and Light Bronze. And what I love most is it’s price! Non-hefty price tag on it, unlike big brands. These healthy mix comes in 30ml bottle size and costs only $29.90 each!

This is the swatch for the Bourjois Healthy Mix Anti-Fatigue Foundation and Concealer.

It comes in a tiny bottle, which I believe is able to last long enough. Reason being? The concealer is tackled to hide your dark circles and puffy eyes!

I apply the concealer to my dark circles (Tips: Remember to apply it in a shape of triangle!), the sides of my nose (To reduce redness), the sides of my lips (For better definition) and other blemishes.

Containing light-reflecting pigments, I find that it instantly brighten my undereyes, you can see it in the pictures! It gives me an immediate radiance and I look less tired-looking instantly!

Moreover, the concealer is a true fine one! The spherical powders give this formula a blur and silky finish, almost like the editing app you have. I’m so glad to announce that it made it to my top concealer list!

The Bourjois Healthy Mix Anti-Fatigue Concealer comes in 3 radiant shades, Light, Medium and Dark. In a mini 7.8ml packaging, the concealer costs $17.50 each.

The Bourjois Healthy Mix Anti-Fatigue Foundation and Concealer can be found in all major Watsons & departmental stores. And I strongly advise you girls to try! It’s an amazing drugstore brand!

For us ladies, it is important to maintain our skin from an age as young as 21 years old. Due to stress, lack of sleep and the harsh environment, we age very easily in this fast paced century. Therefore, we tend to do what we can to regenerate our skins as we grow older.

Whereas some people can afford to pay for expensive treatments and beauty products, majority of the young adults might find it difficult to keep up.

In my own opinion, drinking collagen drinks is one of the most effective and non costly method to maintain our complexion. It is also the mini step that you can add to your daily routine to achieve visible results in the long run.

Let’s talk about camera.

I am no expert here, but I know that we all like to take flawless selfies. And in order to achieve one without much hassle, here’s one that delivers.

The new CASIO EXILIM EX-TR80 is one ultimate selfie camera that you cannot miss. It’s customisable make-up mode settings offers enhancement to the skin tone to deliver beautiful complexions. It automatically removes all acnes and dark circles, without having to manually edit it after.

With wider screen display, the camera is equipped with a 3.5 inch liquid crystal display, which is 30% larger than its predecessor. The 360 degrees of the rotating frame is also perfect for shooting different angle and perspectives.

What went down at the Casio Media event:

My favourite feature of this camera is the night mode captures.

The EX-TR80 ensures a beautiful complexion even in dim lighting while maintaining a perfect ambience. I’ve got a print out from the camera in a completely dark setting, and yet the photo turns out completely lit and delivers its promises!

The Casio EXILIM EX-TR80 comes in white, pink and black models. It’s retail price is $1299 and will be available from 22nd Feb 2017 onwards at the Casio Concept Store in Tampines and all licensed retailers.

It’s my first event with the MyFatPocket family, and I’m looking forward for more to come!

Aesthetic Treatment: Nose Threadlift at Charismata Aesthetics

I did a Nose Threadlift.

With Korea setting as trend leader, it’s getting a lot more common to do Aesthetic Treatments these days and people are a lot more open minded to seeking improvements to their facial features.

Are you unhappy with your chubby face? Are you unhappy with your nose? OR do you want a more perfect, symmetrical face? Regardless of your gender, female or male, we the younger generations are all at our vainest, wanting to take over the social media world.

Therefore, if you’d like to know more about doing small harmless Aesthetic Treatments (with no surgery involved), you can take my experience as a mini reference!

Recently, I went for my virgin Aesthetic Treatment, being very open-minded, I did a Nose Threadlift spontaneously!

All thanks to My Fat Pocket team, I was able to get link up with Charismata Aesthetics.

For people who do not know me well, I’ve always had FLAT nose. And when I caps in the word flat, I meant very flat. How flat? Being hit by a soccer ball in my face during my secondary school days is no biggie at all. Reason being, I have either no nose bridge/ the bone is really very soft!

Therefore, when I went for the treatment, I knew that my nose is finally going to be “rescued”. Once I arrived at the clinic, I did a pre treatment consultation with Dr Lian. Dr Lian explained to me the procedures, and have a good look at my (flat) nose.

To begin with, I have no fear, I already read up about the process online and have a really good mind preparation for the tread lift. However, I guess Dr Lian still did a good job of explaining to me in details, which also helps make me feel at ease.

With supporting pictures, I’m going to explain how the process work.

First, I’ve been injected with at least 4 Anesthetics jabs into my nose. And before the medicine will actually work, you should be expecting some pain (very minor, like a normal injection). And for this pain, I only rate it 2/10, or even 1/10 if you are very used to injections! It takes about 10 minutes for this process.

The next moment, I can’t feel my nose anymore. The anesthetics had “sink in” and it’s time for the procedure. As I mentioned, that I have literally no nose bridge, Dr Lian had then decided to place all 4 threads to “create” a nose bridge.

 

Of course, I can’t see what is going on yet, and I can only feel the movement of Dr Lian pushing the threads up my nose. You won’t feel any pain at all! And this procedure took about another 10-15minutes. Then, we’re done!

Can you see the NOSE BRIDGE???

I was blown away by how obvious my nose bridge is right now, as compared to before. And I am definitely pleased because of how natural it looks even from the side.

These photos are taken right after the threadlift, there is no downtime, except for the fact that I have to keep the plaster on, at the bottom of my nose, for 1-2 days.

Here, for comparison, this is my nose before the treatment, nothing, no nose bridge at all!

And then, look at it now! Proud*

About the pricing, the treatment that I did is <$2000. The threads that they use are thicker that many other clinics which offer a lower pricing, and is able to last me about 2 to 3 years. That is a really long time? So don’t get swayed by lower pricing, do your research!

If you’re interested to do the same nose thread lift, or are looking to do other simple Aesthetic Treatments, do feel free to look for Dr Lian at Charismata Aesthetics for a consultation! I personally think that he is really professional, meticulous and good at the treatments.

Charismata Aesthetics is located at International Plaza, Level 02-89.

Post treatment,

Day 1: I feel slight aches at my nose bridge, like muscle aches, but definitely bearable.

Day 2: Cautious but I don’t feel pain and is rather natural.

Day 3 onwards: It felt so normal and a part of me now.

Definitely worth the investment!

Oh, and MFP will be uploading a video of my treatment process so keep a look out for it! I’m really excited to see the video myself!
