J Studios Beauty Salon: Bernard Cassiere Chocolate Anti-stress Facial

Recently, I went back to my favourite French-theme boutique salon, you can read all about my first treatment here.

SAM_6844_mr1524323217464-01

This time round, I tried their Award winning Chocolate Anti-stress Facial Treatment!!

I don’t know how a chocolate facial sounds to you, but it sure sound enticing to me!
SAM_6836_mr1524323319937-01

The Bernard Cassiere Chocolate Anti-stress facial is formulated with cocoa extracts, which are rich in antioxidants and anti-radical.

The relaxing treatment is recommended for dull skins and for the face-paced adults who lived a highly stressed urban lifestyle.

In this city of ours, stressed skin is often caused by environmental damage, and certain lifestyle habits in our daily routine. And you know what, this totally sounds like me! As a mum of two, with a proper office job, and with loads and loads of activities planned out of it, I am TRULY STRESSED. I experience lack of sleep which leads to dull and tired skin.

As usual, I was greeted really well by the consultant, who served me my favourite cup of yuzu tea, and then we proceed to the 2nd storey for treatment.

This time round, I was brought into the Lavender Room, whose light is dimmed and slightly dark purpleish. The decorations made the room relaxing and comfortable.

SAM_6850-01

The treatment started with a welcome massage, and I chose rose oil this time round!

My skin was deep cleansed with their Cocoa Beans Peeling Scrub “Gommage Aux Feves De Cacao”. It effectively helps to get rid of the dead skin on my face since the last visit.
SAM_6868_mr1527169124397-01

A facial massage was done with their Cocoa Butter “Beurre de Cacao”, which is is highly nourishing!

Here comes my favourite part, the CHOCOLATE MASK!!!

SAM_6872_mr1524323674398-01

They used the “Fondue Au Chocolat” and have it spread all over my face! I feel so hungry at the same time because the chocolate smells so great!

Soon, my face is all covered in chocolate and the consultant even told me to lick some off my lips and boy, the chocolate quality is real good.

SAM_6875-01

Of course, apart from being real yummy, the chocolate mask contains protective, anti-free radical and antioxidants components which helps in restoring a healthy glow on my face!

After which, the Cocoa Nectar “Nectar Au Cocoa”, was applied on my face which helps to hydrates and tone my skin.

The entire treatment was ended off with a layer of Chocolate Nutriprotective Tinted Cream, that helps to provides an even and natural tanned complexion. You can see it from this picture!!SAM_6890_mr1527169180911-01

Conclusion:

What I like most about this treatment, other than being able to EAT the chocolate itself (YESSSSS!!!!), is that it helps to repair and detoxify my skin, protects and nourish them further.

At the end of the facial, I can see a clearer and brighter complexion, and my skin is truly soft and supple!

SAM_6898_mr1527169246457-01

Overall, I love the facial! And I think you girls should try it! It’s seriously pampering! They even ended it off with a chocolate drink! How thoughtful!

Bioderma Sebium Range: Shine Control

I tried the Bioderma Sebium Range recently and am impressed by how it kept my skin oil free and more maintainable throughout the day!

My skin’s texture also improves tremendously! It’s now smoother and my pores felt smaller!

SAM_7514_mr1527767826803-01

The Bioderma Sebium Lotion is a toner suitable for oily/combination skin. It’s formulated to specially soothe and treat oily skin- Asian Skin.

Being an Asian girl, who lives in sunny Singapore, my skin produces more oil than usual due to the weather, which makes it difficult to maintain my makeup through the day.

SAM_7208_mr1527652899195-01

The Sebium Lotion contains active ingredients to help regulates our skin’s PH to a healthy level. It also helps to reduce sebum production and has anti-bacterial properties!!

What i like best about this toner is that it really helps to tighten our pores (thanks to astringent properties of Mushroom Extract!). It has indeed provided me with 8 hours long of lasting hydration with it’s Glycerin ingredient.

SAM_7213_mr1527652854830-01

The Bioderma Sebum Mat Control is a daily moisturiser with shine control and oil control properties!

It’s really amazing because i have never used any moisturisers with a matt and anti-shine concept.

The Sebium Mat Control promises 8 hours long of shine control and smooth effect, and provides up to 12 hours long of hydration. It also ensures clear complexion and smooth skin after using it for more than 7 days. It is said that the Zinc Gluconate and Vitamin B6 ingredients would have helped in long run control by reducing sebum productions.

It also minimize the appearance of large pores and aims to refine skin’s texture with help of Salicylic Acid.

SAM_7531-01

The Sebium range is also Fluidactiv Patented, which is the only patent in the market that biologically regulates quality of sebum similar to that of a healthy skin and stops process which causes pimples and clogged pores to form!

This is how my skin looks, after applying both the products (Bare Face)
SAM_7507_mr1527767977347-01

This is how my skin looks with makeup on after.
SAM_7510_mr1527768074705-01

I tried it on for 8 hours, and as you can see from the picture below, my skin still looks refreshing after perspiring throughout the day!
SAM_7538_mr1527775860762-01

After using it for a few days, i am SOLD!!! It even works well as a make-up base! And it really helps me to control my oily skin day after day.

This is my skin after using the products for 7 days in a row. Perfectly smooth and minimum sebum productions even under strong heat!
SAM_7500_mr1527768152459-01

If you’re someone who has really bad oily/combination skin, i will definitely recommend this product to you guys! I’ve always liked Bioderma as it’s a dermatological brand that works.

The Lotion is retailing at $33.90 for 200ml and Mat Control is retailing at $36.90 for 30ml!

J Studios Beauty Salon: Signature Oxygen Deep Cleansing Facial

Recently, I made time to visit J Studios, a pretty boutique salon located conveniently at Haji Lane.

This two-storey beauty salon has won my heart with its elegant interior design and a neo-classical French theme.

SAM_6437_mr1521130581481-01

J Studios Beauty Salon provides services for the face, body, hair and other professional beauty treatments. What’s most amazing is that they’ve outgrown their home-based salon and expanded to 2 outstanding beauty salons today!

SAM_6434-01

SAM_6435-01

They’ve set up a relaxing and cozy corner as well, with their walls decorated with mini frames and a beautiful rose decorated wall. I also welcomed with a tasteful cup of yuzu tea!
SAM_6447_mr1521130777494-01

SAM_6425-01

SAM_6445-01

When I first stepped into J Studios, I immediately felt comfortable and pampered, believe it or not, the ambiance do matters!

I explored the first storey a little and found myself really liking the manicure and pedicure zone! Or maybe, I’m just attracted by the really pretty lighted mirror.

SAM_6427-01

Well greeted by their service staff, we proceeded to the upper storey after changing into slippers provided by them.

I was brought to a really cozy room, and changed into their robes, awaiting the session to start!

20180315_161352-01

20180315_162328_mr1521130256570-01

I did their Signature Oxygen Deep Cleansing Facial, which is their best selling treatment.

This treatment is suitable for all skin types and can immediately show results, leaving you with a brightened skin tone and glowing radiant after.

May I also bring out the point that if you are a makeup junkie like me, cleansing is important as we stack makeup on our face every day, resulting in clogged pores. Our face is never really clean unless we deep cleanse and remove all the impurities left behind.

SAM_6464_mr1521130911403
The beautician removed my makeup and does a thorough cleansing. I was given a shoulder massage with my favourite lavender oil scent!

Then, extraction happened. My face was clogged with all kinds of dirt because I have just finished my confinement. (Trust me, confinement gives you no time for maintaining your skin because..baby FIRST!)

The first step to this treatment is Oxygen deep cleansing.

20180315_171712_mr1522080383289-01

Basically, the Oxygen Facial delivers oxygen, moisturizer, vitamins, and antioxidants, replenishing nutrients to the skin using an airbrush. The pressure and serum help to deep cleanse and plump our skin, minimizing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, while increasing blood circulation to boosting collagen production and skin whitening.

The treatment also provides relief and effective acne clearance for troubled skin, and fighting signs of aging skin, leaving your skin clean, smooth, and radiant.

Next, serum was applied to my face with a cold ultrasonic machine for further hydrating and nourishing.

The ultrasonic machine is a cold plate device which helps heighten the absorption of the serum! Feels good on the face too, since its cold:)

20180315_173256_mr1522080478725-01

Lastly, a rose facial mask to wrap up the session!

The rose mask has hydrating and anti-aging benefits, and it’s so relaxing that I fell asleep.

20180315_174715-01

Below, is Before and After of the immediate results after doing the facial. (No edits to the lighting, the photo is taken in the exact same room!)

april_2018-03-25-21-20-03-556

Can you see my skin transformed from such a dull and uneven skin tone, to a much brighter and even one??? This is amazing!!

Here, more photos and insta-vids to show you guys my clean and glowy skin😊

SAM_6473_mr1521132125749-01

Overall, I leave the salon feeling really satisfied! My skin is really soft (like baby butt soft) and clean after. I even got compliments from strangers because my skin is glowing! I recommend this treatment to anyone who has dull skin and requires deep cleansing as the facial works and delivers instant results!

If you’re interested to try out the Signature Oxygen Deep Cleansing Facial (90 minutes), it cost only $88 for the first trial session! For price wise, worth it!

And for my followers,

From now till 30 April 2018, all customers get 1 additional session of Signature Oxygen Deep Cleansing Facial free with every package of 8 sessions purchased by quoting “JESOXYGEN”

SAM_6442_mr1521130436258-01

Protect your family from harmful chlorine: SONAKI Vitamin C filter showerhead

I think I’m really aging when I suddenly care more about my family’s health more than anything. And having a toddler and husband with bad skin, the more I want to find solutions to help improve their conditions!

So, my husband has eczema, and I think it sort of passed on a bit of those bad genes to Aaron because whenever he has a mosquito bite and scratch the hell out of it, it leaves a really bad scar. Well, at least he doesn’t really have eczema so… I am grateful!

SONAKI sells VITAMIN C filter showerhead, which filters away 99.9% of the harmful chlorine that’s found in our tap water.

This is where I found out that Singapore’s tap water actually contains an average of 2.45 mg/l of chlorine (Similar to the amount that’s found in swimming pools). This is really bad because we all know how harmful chlorine can be for our hair and skin!

Some harmful effects can be:

  • Drying and aging effects on your skin
  • Drying effects on your hair
  • Harmful agitation of asthma and other respiratory conditions
  • Increased risk to your heart
  • Inflammation of blemishes and Acne breakouts
  • Chlorine and links to cancer

The one that I tried is the LOTUS VitaC Showerhead.

Basically, it’s the normal standard shower water setting and the other models simply carry more settings like rain or massage mode.

Well, we definitely can’t avoid showering, which is why I think Sonaki’s Vitamin C filter showerhead is a really good solution to improve our skin’s health and hair loss/related problems.

So, I put the showerhead to test for at least 3 days.

I find that the water seems less drying, and makes my skin smoother.

How does it work? Once the water goes through the filter, the Vitamin C dissolves into the water and neutralized 99.9% of all chlorine and chloramines present in the water.

It’s also easy to install! Simply remove your existing shower head and plug this in.

If you’re a family with newborn babies, Sonaki’s showerhead can be really suitable for babies’ skin and sensitive skin as well.

I hope Aaron’s skin will start to get better very soon! 🙂

I’m so glad I got introduced to this product because I would never have thought or known of this problem that exists in the entire country.

If you’re someone who cares a lot about your family’s health, please do consider checking this out! It’s a great long-term solution for anyone who is facing skin or hair loss issues.

The one I use cost $69.90 SGD and includes one filter that can last 3-6 months according to your usage. After which, each 3 piece refill filter pack cost $15.

Beauty Sync By Avalon 1st Enzyme Mask in Singapore

I’ve always liked products with natural ingredients, that means it’ll cause as little harm as possible to our skin, and at the same time produce results.

Beauty Sync by Avalon Enzyme Mask is the 1st Enzyme Mask in Singapore.

How so? Basically, it focuses on a holistic formula that is as acid-free as possible, using fruit enzymes as the main agents to promote gentle exfoliation and hydration.

The fruit enzymes come mainly from papaya and pineapples.🍍

This is unlike other facial masks in the market which focus on using acids such as AHA, BHA, or PHA to achieve similar effects. Fruit enzymes work much gently on the face and hence will minimize any irritation caused to our face.

Here, I have with me, 3 Boxes of Beauty Sync masks, mainly the Brightening, Anti-aging, and Hydrating.

The Anti-Aging

Combined with Anti-aging ingredients like the Black Gem Extract, Black Tea Extract, and Peptides, this powerful mask repairs damaged skin and reduce signs of aging. It helps with firming, lifting and rejuvenation. And prolonged usage will help reduce the appearance of pores, wrinkles and firm lines!

The Hydrating

This mask contains hydrating ingredients like the Patented Hyaluronic Acid and Trehalose, which intensively helps to hydrate and soothes skin. It also helps keep our skin well-hydrated for a fresh dewy look!

The Brightening

Combined with effective brightening ingredients such as Tranexamic Acid, White Mulberry Extract and Vitamin C, this mask protects our skin against skin damage and prevents overproduction of melanin. Prolonged usage will help even out skin tone and lighten spots!

In this review, I’ll be trying the Brightening version.

The mask sheet smells good! Not a strong scent, just a light one.

The mask sheet is really thin and feels gentle when applied on my face.

So, I tried on the face mask for 15-20minutes, but it’s recommended 10-15 minutes on the box. I usually gauge by whether i on the air-con or not, because if the air-con is on, the mask dry faster, so less time is required for “masking”.

Well well, the results are so good! My face looks brightened (Which is the point), and it’s so clear and clean!

This is me after removing the mask, yes I am really fair (Don’t judge)

It feels like prolonged usage will really help restore your skin!

This is amazing because the effect is seen immediately! And it feels good because we all know how gentle this mask is.

I urge those with sensitive skin to try this!

FUJIFILM launches ASTALIFT’s new rejuvenating skincare: IN-FOCUS CELLACTIVE SERUM

If you don’t already know, FUJIFILM created ASTALIFT.

And since FUJIFILM excels in medical and life science products for MORE THAN 20 years in Singapore, the brand has created a whole range of carefully researched skincare and supplement products that had proven efficacy.

Therefore, what I will be introducing today, is their NEW Topline Age-Defying product, the IN-FOCUS CELLACTIVE SERUM.

The Serum comes in a form of bright orange smooth gel texture, with a light therapeutic smell of Bergamot, Rose, Jasmine & Sandalwood. When applied on skin in circular motion, the gel instantly melts and is quickly absorbed into my skin!

Here are some of the benefits that you can get from this cellactive serum:

  1. Delays Ageing and Restores Skin Youth most effectively through Stem Cell Rejuvenation
  2. Re-energise Stem Cells to combat skin ageing like wrinkles and loss of elasticity while improving skin tone, radiance and softness functions
  3. Protects stem cells from stresses that cause skin damage and ageing
  4. Activates stem cell repair and regeneration features

What are the ingredients that make it work?

  • Nano-Astaxanthin CP+ for stem cell anti-oxidation protection
  • Nano-Cellactive for stem cells activation

What enables this sheer lightweight gel serum to immediately melt and be absorbed into our skin?

This topline serum has Ion Sensing Technology that allows immediate penetration of serum as it glides on the skin. Yet another remarkable technology implemented into their skincare range.

Other recommended ASTALIFT products

I’d also like to mention 2 other products that had won the hearts of ASTALIFT’s consumers and supporters.

ASTALIFT JELLY AQUARYSTA

This essential skincare base works as a skin conditioner, which you are supposed to use it after your face wash, and before your toner. It’s infused with nano-ceramides, which helps to fight free-radical damage and prevents premature aging. The jelly penetrates deep into the skin and replenishes moisture your skin, sort of “conditioned” it before further absorption of other products, which I find amazing!

This product is also voted as Women’s Weekly Best Beauty Buys of the year!

I’ve personally tried this product for a week, together with the In-Focus Cellactive Serum and can see differences to my face. Although the result won’t be huge in just a week’s time, I experience less oily skin throughout the day, and knowing the benefits of the product is enough to keep me going. It’s a product that helps your skin in the long run after all!

Only when your skin is in good condition, then your skin cells can effectively absorb other products used!

ASTALIFT PERFECT UV CLEAR SOLUTION SPF50+PA++++

Why did I recommend this? Because this UV is so lightweight, yet fully protects your skin with a thin layer of application. I’ve fell in love with it as it comes with no heavy/oily afteruse!

We did a little experiment with a fellow blogger at the booth, and look at the side that had been protected by the UV sunscreen! A little of it really does the magic!

What’s more, this is voted as the CLEO Body Awards 2016 as the BEST SUNSCREEN by all the ladies!

ASTALIFT’s third and largest retail boutique in NEX

Also, I’ve visited the newly opened boutique in NEX, that features the brand’s signature red hue to signify the vibrancy and richness of ASTALIFT. This retail outlet also carries a skin analyser machine, where customers’ skin condition is analysed, so that relevant products can be recommended accordingly.

It also features a FACIAL CABIN, so customers may enjoy a relaxing 30 minutes facial at the boutique itself.

Post-treatment review of Face Rejuvenation Laser at Halley Medical Aesthetics

How time flies! Fast forward 3 months and I’m back for a post-treatment review with Dr. Terence Tan at Halley Medical Aesthetics! I’ve almost forgotten about this because the treatment area recovered so well after only 4-5 days.

As mentioned in my previous post, the spot faded after just 1 session!

1

So, let me recap a little.

If you have any pigmentation (Spots or freckles) and would like to have them removed, do consider trying out the Face Rejuvenation Laser Treatment at Halley!

I had a big freckle spot on the upper left of my cheek since primary school days. It was there on my face for as long as I could remember, so much so that I thought it was a birth mark only to find out from Dr. Terence Tan that it wasn’t one. Therefore to remove it, I went ahead with a Face Rejuvenation Laser Treatment for Pigmentation.

You may read my previous post for more!

2

During the review, I updated Dr. Terence Tan that once the post-laser scab peeled off, the treated area was entirely clear. It’s amazing how 1 session removed the spot by close to 80%!

Dr. Terence Tan also explained that more sessions are often required to remove pigmentations and for me, maybe 1 more session will help to clear the spot off entirely.

3
He removed my makeup to conduct a precise check on the post-treatment results.

Same as the last time, we took another set of front and side pictures for comparison.

The comparison pictures

4
(Front View)

From the front view, you can see very CLEARLY how faint/faded the freckle spot is! The other random small spots have lightened as well and my face is also more rejuvenated. You can see that the laser has evened out and brightened my skin and the lines from the side of my nose are no longer as deep.

5

(Side view- Right)

6

(Side view- left)

Amazing, isn’t it? So it’s true, you don’t have to spend a fortune to remove your pigmentations, which is a misconception I always had when I’m younger.

The treatment that I did for Face Rejuvenation for Pigmentation costs $370 (includes GST).

7

If you need a recap once again, please head over to my previous post/ watch the following video:

8

My advice for anyone who is interested to get rid of pigmentations is to consult Dr. Terence Tan first to find out your treatment options and the exact solutions for you!

After all, no two skin types are alike. Their consultation fees are really affordable too, at $10 on weekdays from 10am-4pm and $25 on weekdays after 4pm. If you are a busy bee, you can go for a weekend consultation at $50 all day too. What’s more, this amount will be waived if you decide to go ahead with a treatment.

Once again, Thank you for reading my post-treatment review, and I hope to visit Dr. Terence Tan again next year!

Eyelash Extensions and Facial at Emerald Allure [Roxy Square]- Singapore

Hi All! Remember the Eyebrow Embroidery that I did with Emerald Allure?

This week, I went to their new Roxy Square outlet to complete the look with a new set of Eyelash Extensions and a pampering Facial Session! I decided not to touch up my brows due to Baby Number 2!

You know, I’m really proud of this set of Eyelash Extensions! SO DAMN PRETTY RIGHT??????????????

If you girls heard of Emerald Allure, they used to be a home-based salon located at Punggol (Yes it’s still there).

Today, they opened 2 outlets in Roxy Square, providing nail services, facial sessions, and lash extensions. I think they have expanded well!

Well, let me show you more of my pretty lashes, i took one whole series on these precious.*wink*

My lashes are length 12mm, with a mix of longer/shorter lashes. You can actually leave it to them to customize your lashes for you, with a choice of longer lash ends or longer mid lashes in the centre.

Of course, I also did a facial over there, which means settling 2 beauty services at once conveniently at the outlet!

It’s a humble new outlet, but definitely, the lash/nail advisors there are skilled!

So…. My lashes and facial are done by Vivi, and I really enjoyed the facial session. It’s basic facial but Vivi is so patient that she really cleaned my face really thorough and well?

Emerald Allure is having August Promotions!!!!

Extensions prices are REALLY AFFORDABLE now!

Check them out at their social media pages for more information:

Face Rejuvenation for Pigmentation at Halley Medical Aesthetics

Hi everyone!

As you know, recently I had done filler treatments with Dr. Terence Tan of Halley Medical Aesthetics and I’m really pleased with the results. Therefore, I’m back for another type of treatment, to help enhance my facial appearance further.

We reviewed the previous filler treatment done as it takes a while for the injected filler to settle down. We looked at the overall improvements to my facial appearance to determine the overall effectiveness of the treatment.

I’m glad to say that the improvements made to my face are recognizable.

Just look at the pictures side by side! On the right picture, people can immediately point out the differences as compared to the past.

After this, Dr. Terence Tan and I discussed how to use laser for face rejuvenation.

I’ve had freckles since primary school days, moreover, going under the sun for sports activities had affected my freckles spot. They basically grew bigger and became more obvious over time. To add on, my recent prewedding photoshoot was done under direct sunlight by the sea, and when I’m back from the trip, my facial technician noticed and pointed out to me that my pigmentation issue became worse.

It used to not bother me too much, but now, I’m really determined to get rid of my freckles!

(Picture from the filler treatments)

As you can see from the picture, I also have a big mark on the left side of my face that I thought could be a birth mark, but I can’t deny of the possibility of it being a big freckle spot.

For those who have freckles, I’m sure you know how I feel. Even when our skin is in tip top conditions (smooth and clean), nobody will have the impression that our skin is really good, because of the messy spots all over our face.

So, to begin, we started off with a consultation for treating my pigmentation using laser.

Dr. Terence Tan explained that his Face Rejuvenation for Pigmentation treatment involves the use of the Q Switched Nd:YAG laser to remove or lighten pigmentation on the face.

This laser treatment will lighten my café au lait spots or pigmented birthmarks as well as pigments caused by sun exposure (or solar lentigo).  He also assured me that the laser treatment will not be painful and I will barely feel it, with the help of numbing cream.

Dr. Terence Tan would also do a no downtime laser rejuvenation treatment at the same time, which will even out the skin tone by lightening pigmentation and reduce pore size.

To begin, the medical assistant removed my makeup and applied the numbing cream on the areas to be treated, which is most of my face.

We waited approximately 20 minutes for the numbing cream to work before we proceed.

In the following set of pictures, you can see Dr. Terence Tan treating the 2 obvious freckles spots with the laser. One on my left cheek and the other 3 smaller ones on my right cheek.

The flash from the laser is really bright and I have to put on these “shades” to protect my eyes. However, rest assured, I felt totally no pain at all.

Dr. Terence Tan then proceeded to use the laser to treat the smaller, less visible freckles. And finally he switched the laser to rejuvenation mode. All these will combine to even out my skin tone, reduce pore size, and firm my face at the same time.

In this laser process, I also didn’t feel any pain.

I detected a slight burning smell when Dr. Terence Tan treated my entire face because of the multiple small spots that required treatment. Fret not still! It’s just my facial hair burning up, and it’s not dangerous at all.

From the picture below, you can see that the bigger freckle had turned slightly red after the laser treatment.

After the session, Dr. Terence Tan told me although the treated spots will turn darker each day, there is nothing to worry about as it will resolve within five to seven days. In the meantime, I can still continue to put on makeup and use concealer to cover the spot!

I’m not that concerned with the dark spots because there are only 2 relatively small areas that are affected and I can still cover them with my concealer!

To ensure good recovery, Dr. Terence Tan told me not to expose myself to strong sunlight post treatment, and to put on proper sunblock till the dark spot dry up and drop off on its own.

Also, depending on the patient’s condition, more than one treatment may be required. Dr. Terence Tan also gave me some cream to apply over the next 3 days on both spots that turned red to make that it recovers well.

The Treatment that I did for Face Rejuvenation for Pigmentation costs $370 (includes GST).

Guess what?

I did the Treatment on a Monday, and the dark spots fell off entirely on Friday!

I’m really glad that it took only 4 days to fall off.

I’m sorry because I have no proper pic of the darkened spots, I simply cover up with concealer so it’s really not obvious!

In the following pic, I have pointed out the dark spots, on the last day before everything fell off. They have lightened up considerably.

And now, I have really clear and beautiful skin!

As for the spots, they’re gone within 1 session!

I now have clearer, brighter and less pigmented skin! I’m so glad I went ahead with this treatment with Dr. Terence Tan.

If you’re bothered by your pigmentation, feel free to consult Dr. Terence Tan for more advises on what can be done!

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!
