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!

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!

REVIEW: Fractional CO2 Laser @ ASTIQUE Clinic

Screen Shot 2017-01-26 at 10.18.36 pm

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!
