I am always doing Dual Yellow Laser with Dr Celine Leong at Astique Clinic, Singapore but this time round, I gave something new a try – Milk Peel. I would call this a “Lunch Time Quick Fix” as the entire process took less than 30 minutes.
Some of you may link Milk Peel & Chemical Peel together but they are not exactly the same. Even though I personally find that chemical peels & milk peels are more or less the same but Milk Peel is a lot more gentle on the skin and it is suitable for all skin type. Chemical peels on the other hand, is pretty selective. Some peels are not suitable for dry skin while some are not suitable for people with acne problems.
If I have to choose one favourite between the two, my choice will be Milk Peel as it has no downtime and my skin doesn’t flak as much. This means that there is almost no downtime and I don’t have to put up with flaky make up for the next 2-3 days.
P/S: My makeup sat nicely on my face for the next 1 week plus too.
Milk Peel is said to help shrink enlarged pores, improve fine lines and wrinkles and even out our skin tone. As I have only done one session so far, all I could see were improved in skin radiance and even skin tone for the next few days. I believe that if I continue to do more sessions, I will be able to see more results.
You can do Milk Peel at Astique Clinic, located at 350 Orchard Road, Shaw House, Singapore 238868.

Just a few days before Chinese New Year, I went to make an appointment for teeth whitening at La Vie Aesthetics located at 277 Orchard Road, #04-08 Orchard Gateway, 238858. I really really love the results as my teeth got 6 shades whiter after a single session of 2x LED Light Whitening within 30 minutes. I love it so much so that I have already decided to head back for my second session in April or May because I want a set of pearlie white teeth for my big day in June!
Let me share with you what the treatment consists of. Firstly, a consultation will be done with you in a room. That is to explain to you what they will be doing for you and at the same time, check on the shade of your teeth. Mine was shade 20 and to my surprise, I thought that shade 20 was pretty white already but I can’t help feeling that my teeth are super yellow from my daily coffee consumption. I can never live without coffee!!
When I was brought into the treatment room, I was told to brush my teeth and the beautician double confirmed my current teeth shade before beginning the treatment.
They were very thoughtful. As the LED was very bright, they gave me a pair of eyewear to wear just incase I can’t sleep and wanted to keep my eyes open because they know I would be scrolling the phone for sure. Lol.
They even have gum protection. A layer of blue fluid will be placed around the gum areas and then left to harden for 15-30 seconds like the picture below. This is to ensure that the whitening gel do not touch your gums. Disclaimer: The picture below is not me!
After the protector was harden, whitening gel was placed onto my teeth and I was under the LED light for 15 minutes. There is a total of 2 episodes. So after the first 15 minutes, they will clean the gel off and replace it with another round of new gel. The gel do not contain any bleaching agents and did not cause any sensitivity issue for me.
The entire session took less than 1 hour. And after that 1 hour, my teeth actually got 6 shades whiter!! Actually the teeth is not as yellow as seen in the picture below. I think the lighting played a part in making them look yellowish. Anyway, just take a look at the comparison!! My teeth is so much whiter now!
Left: After, Right: Before
Imagine a row of teeth with before on top and after below, it makes a lot of difference!!
Sooooo, this is how I look for CNY Day 1! Look at my set or white teeth!
Instead of $588/session, quote my name to enjoy the service at $168! They promise to whiten your teeth for up to 6 shades.

Every girl yearns for her skin to be perfect and I am no exception. On days when I feel lazy, I often wished that I can wake up with my face looking flawless, as though I already have my make up on. #IWokeUpLikeThis
Being a social media influencer, I am kept abreast on the cosmetics and skincare treatments available to improve and enhance my face. One very popular treatment available in the market right now which caught my attention amidst the many treatments I have been reading about is semi-permanent foundation. I don’t usually have a lot of makeup on my face and as I desire flawless skin, I decided to give BB Covered Foundation a try at Mirage Aesthetic.
I made my appointment for BB Covered Foundation Treatment ($280) with Mirage Aesthetics the very next day and was told that I can quote “Myfatpocket_Mirage” to enjoy 1 additional session of Mirage Aesthetic’s Signature Instant Korea BB glow laser treatment (worth $480) for free! This means that all l I needed was $280 for 2 treatments to look good this Valentine’s Day and Chinese New Year!
What is BB Covered Foundation Treatment?
It is a 90-minute Perfect Touch Solution that uses Korean Food and Drug Administration-approved and natural products combined with the latest technology from Korea to help you enhance your natural features.
As I have huge facial pores on my cheek areas and uneven skin tone, the treatment can brighten my complexion, minimize my pores and even out the skin color.
Other benefits of the treatment include:
• Reduces and improves scarring problems
• Reduces inflammation
• Improves skin texture
• Reduces wrinkles and dark eye rings
• Hydrates the skin
• Long lasting effect for up to 4 months
• Instant results
Before the start of any procedure, the aesthetician will make sure that my skin is cleansed and exfoliated followed by the application of a multi-growth factor (MGF) ampoule and a BB cream. A device, Micro-Needling, was rolled over my face which was said to feel like tiny ant bites but felt more like a facial massager to me. It was so comfortable that I fell asleep throughout the treatment.
A skin booster and MGF mask was applied right after the micro-needling treatment to hydrate the skin. After the entire treatment, my face looked brighter and smoother instantly. I can safely say #IWokeUpWithFlawlessSkin now! You can expect some very mild redness which will typically go away within a day but I experienced none of this.
As you can see from the picture below, my face was literally glowing from the treatment and I absolutely love treatments that have no downtime.
With the BB Covered Foundation Treatment done at Mirage Aesthetic, I can kiss goodbye to thick makeup and spend lesser time dolling myself up every morning now. Oh, thanks to the smoother skin texture, even removing my daily makeup is such a breeze now too!
If you are interested in looking your best and doing the treatment before Chinese New Year, quote “Myfatpocket_Mirage” to further enjoy 1x Mirage Aesthetic’s Signature Instant Korea BB glow laser treatment (U.P. $480) for free with 1x session of $280 Mirage Aesthetic’s BB Covered Foundation Treatment (U.P. $680) done – limited to the first 20 sign-ups only.

For this post, I will be sharing my review of Fractional CO2 laser offered by the ASTIQUE Clinic, which is also my regular aesthetic clinic.
In recent years, Fractional CO2 lasers are getting increasingly popular as the mainstay treatment to Acne scarring, improving wrinkles, discolouration as well as pore tightening. The reason is simply because it has clinically proven to be effective when performed by an experienced, certified doctor!
The reason for me resorting to this treatment was because of my large pores concern & residual ice pick scars from my battle with acne during my adolescence. My skin type falls under combination but it tends to get excessively oily under the hot humid climate of Singapore. That set stage for my acne issues during adolescence.
The certified doctor who performed my Laser treatment was none other than Dr Celine Leong who also does my Botox injections.
The process started with a diagnosis of my skin condition. As usual, Dr Celine was very patient throughout the whole diagnosis process; intently listening to my concerns. She even took time to explain the benefits as well as the complications eg downtime. All in all, she never fails to give that sense of assurance that you are in good hands; this is also the key reason why I am happy to follow up with her all these while!
Next, numbing cream was applied generously onto my skin approximately half an hour before the laser treatment.
Below is a visual proof that they were INDEED very generous with the numbing cream to ensure I do not undergo any form of discomfort during the actual laser treatment!
*See how white my face is with the numbing cream*
After approximately half an hour, the cream was removed.
You will start to appreciate the effect of the numbing cream upon the start of the laser treatment!
In short, Carbon Dioxide laser emit short burst of high-energy laser that vapourizes the scarred tissue layer by layer. Technically, your skin is being ‘burnt’!
Thanks to the numbing cream, my experience with the procedure was almost painless!
At the end of the procedure, my skin appeared mildly red but it is absolutely normal for post procedure. The downtime ranged from 3-5 days subsequently with minute gritted scabs & slight redness. By end of Day 5, all the scabs have more or less fallen off, leaving behind a smoother skin with smaller pores!
As this is only my first laser treatment session with them, the effect is not significant enough to totally alleviate all my ice pick scars. It is common for patients to undergo at least 2-4 treatment to see good visual improvement.
To attain that significant improvement, I am definitely looking forward to my next laser CO2 treatment with Dr Celine!
