Facts about Collagen

Collagen is made up of a triple helical structure in the extracellular matrix. The most abundant form of protein in the human body, it makes up 75% of our skin and is therefore the key component towards supple and healthy radiant skin.

An important protein that forms the basic structure of skin, hair, blood vessels, cartilage and bones in the human body, collagen is essential for skin suppleness and moisture retention to maintain skin elasticity and radiance. Our body loses collagen after the age of 25 and daily replenishment is required to ensure that skin is kept healthy and youthful.

There are various sources (fish, beef, pork, chicken) where collagen may be extracted from. Clinical studies showed that fish skin and scales contain higher amounts of collagen with higher bioavailability in body than collagen from other animal sources. Fish collagen is also proven to have higher efficacy than other forms of collagen. Collagen extracted from fish scale has a higher degree of purity and is less affected by animal diseases/infections like bovine spongiform encephalopathy (mad cow disease).

Collagen peptides are small bioactive peptides obtained by breaking down of the molecular bonds between individual collagen strands to peptides.

New Moon uses only high-quality Fish Collagen Peptide for all collagen products. The smaller collagen molecules is known for better absorption by the body as compared to normal, bigger collagen molecules which cannot be easily digested and absorbed.

Collagen is an important constituent of connective tissues within the body. Skin, joints and hair all contain collagen. Regular supplementation of collagen sees benefits to the abovementioned parts of the body and retards aging of the body.

Take these regularly and be beautiful!

Experienced Natural Results with Celevenus

Lacking vibrancy in my appearance? Celevenus is here to help me!

I get to know Celevenus through Instagram and apparently, Celevenus is very popular with many beauty and lifestyle bloggers. I have read pretty good reviews on their hospitality and services and is delighted to start my beauty journey with them.

CELEVENUS IS LOCATED AT NGEE ANN CITY TOWER B

Despite having a beauty regimen, there is something that skincare and diet cannot help; the lost of volume on facial muscles due to aging or lost of weight. This is where a professional aesthetic doctor is needed to improve my appearance.

ONE OF THE TREATMENT ROOM

Dr Dylan Chau, the doctor at Celevenus diagnosed my face with care and understanding my area of concerns. He then suggested I can give Sculptra a try since I’m looking for a naturally enhanced look that is less frail looking and that my dark eye circles can be lighten. Sculptra is a kind of collagen stimulating medicine that triggers the body to produce its own collagen naturally, otherwise known as ‘The Liquid Facelift’.

Since Sculptra works by replacing lost collagen using the body’s very own collagen stimulation process, the result is not instantaneously like what a filler can do but is known to be longer lasting.

THE FRIENDLY THERAPIST DOING CLEANSING ON ME FOR PRE SCULPTRA

You can wear your make up and pop by for your treatment to suit your schedule because the therapist will do a good cleansing and removal of make up for you. Great service!

APPLYING THE NUMBING CREAM

I was brought to a comfortable room where the therapist cleansed my skin & applied a good amount of numbing cream. A good 30 mins of numbing is anticipated since Sculptra involves multiple injections at area of concerns.

GETTING READY FOR SCULPTRA (pictures taken in Apr 18, my first Sculptra treatment)

Dr Dylan used a white wax pencil and started marking on the areas he thinks should be filled for attaining a fuller, youthful appearance. After the markings, he checked to ensure I’m happy with what he is doing before proceeding with the injections.

HOW SCULPTRA WORKS?

As I aged, there is volume loss in the internal facial tissues such as the loss of bone density in skull, loss of collagen and muscle tissues, as well as fat resorption.

As a result, my skin sags & become droopy. Folds at the cheeks, tear trough, laugh lines and corners of the mouth became more prominent. There is also slight development of fine wrinkles for me.

Sculptra helps to replace & reinforce the skin’s collagen structure within the deep dermis. This reinforced collagen structure provides a foundation that gradually restores the fullness of my facial contour which in term smooths out shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds that has been depleted over time.

WHY CHOOSE DR DYLAN CHAU?

Because he is nice and charismatic. Of course not just these but also because you will be in good hands under him.

  1. Dr Dylan Chau is the trainer of Sculptra
  2. Dr Chau has over 10 years of hands-on experience in Sculptra, he is one of the pioneers in this procedure ever since its launch in Singapore.
  3. Dr Chau is also the Key Opinion Leader (KOL) for Sculptra.

THE PROCEDURES

Sculptra is injected into the skin. The number of injections per treatment session will vary depending on the degree of correction and Dr Dylan’s decision of what is right for us. For mine, it was a 3 sessions course.

A topical anesthetic will be applied and you may experience injection site discomfort in the treatment process. However, this varies from person to person and you should not receive treatment if you have an active infection or skin inflammation near the planned injection site.

After each treatment session, I experienced slight swelling, which can give me a preview of how I may look once my shallowness is filled. The swelling on average subsides within a few days and the wrinkles will temporarily reappear as the gradual process of collagen replacement continues.

RIGHT AFTER SCULPTRA (pictures taken in Jun 18, 2nd session of Sculptra)

Following an average of three treatment sessions over a few months as what Dr Dylan recommended for me can produce a more natural, younger looking appearance that is potentially long lasting. During the course of treatment, Dr Dylan may adjust your treatment plan to help you reveal a natural-looking appearance that’s uniquely yours too.

TIPS & THINGS TO TAKE NOTE

Some patients may experience injection site pain, redness, bruising, bleeding, itching, or swelling. Other side effects may include the delayed development of non-visible, small bumps under the skin sometimes noticeable when pressing on the treated area.

It is better that you can take SinEcch a week before your procedure to reduce the side effects . This is not necessary but can be an aid for someone who is  prone to bruising.

Also, try to stop your skin supplements including fish oil as they have blood thinning effect. When you blood is thinner, you will bleed a little more during the treatment.

AFTERCARE (MASSAGING BY THE THERAPIST)

After each treatment session with Sculptra, give yourself a good but gentle facial massage. This easy step will let you achieve better result with Sculptra if you are disciplined with it. Massage the treated area for 5 minutes 5 times a day for 5 days after treatment is highly recommended by Dr Dylan.

MY RESULT AFTER 3 SESSIONS OF SCULPTRA IN 5 MONTHS (Apr to Sept 18)

The result? A refined, more youthful looking appearance over time that are potentially long lasting. Look at my eyes area, temple and laugh lines! These are something that cannot be digitally enhanced but only with the help of Sculptra.

ON MY FINAL THOUGHTS

With my 3 sessions of Sculptra at Celevenus, I must say it does work!

The work of Sculptra is so natural but noticeable, I get compliments for looking better in appearance rather than I look unnaturally beautiful (this could happen with traditional fillers). The final result from my 3rd session of Sculptra done in Sept 18 needs another 3 months to take effect but I’m already very happy with the result I have gotten till date.

The downpoint of Sculptra? It is a little priceier than normal fillers and it took longer to cultivate the result. But with a final beauty look that is more natural and long lasting, Sculptra definitely have my vote. Considering myself as a foodie and beauty blogger who is constantly on the go without proper rest (I sleep like 3 hours daily) and diet (I eat all sorts of food 24/7), the beauty and plumping effect of Sculptra seemed to be good already.

Maintenance is the key of success for anything that works, so if you have gotten the result you wanted, try to adopt a healthier lifestyle to sustain your new beauty look.

If you have any enquiry or want my in-depth sharing, feel free to email me at hazeltree85@yahoo.com else contact Celevenus Aesthetic so that Dr Dylan and team can advise you further.

enCurve, the en route to slimmer waistline?

enCurve may help to discover your curves

I’m back to Kowayo Aesthetic Clinic for their slimming program. Did a one time trial on Sygmalift previously.

Achieve a V Contour face with Sygmalift

KOWAYO AESTHETIC CLINIC IS LOCATED AT 1 RAFFLES LINK

Despite exercising and having a strict diet, there will be time we need a little help to reduce the bulge that is persistent on our waistline. enCurve is said to be the easy comfortable way to deliver circumferential reduction permanently.

THE TREATMENT ROOM AND ENCURVE

enCurve reduces adipocytes through apoptosis-inducing radio frequency. Specialized frequency at 27.12 MHz is applied to targeted area and heat adipocytes to the optimal temperature to cause denaturation of cells, leading to adipocyte’s death.

I was given to a program consisting of six sessions, targeting on my abdomen. The treatment is said to be a swift one (30 mins) and I am encouraged to increase my water intake throughout the 6 sessions of treatment.

ME ON ENCURVE

I was brought to a simple furnished room and given 2 cups of warm water to drink for pre-treatment and another 2 for post-treatment, The therapist explained that water will assists in removing the dead fat cells so is really essential throughout the program.

To be a suitable candidate for enCurve, you must not have any electronic devices implanted as it may interfere with enCurve. No cell phone is allowed during the treatment too!

A COMFORTABLE PROCEDURE 

The therapist put me on a bed and started adjusting the ergonomic shaped air flow parameter on me. I felt relax and absolutely pain free throughout the process. The only thing I felt was a comfortable gentle warmth on my skin as the radio energy penetrated into my skin.

HOW ENCURVE WORKS 

The apoptosis-inducing radiofrequency penetrates deep into the tissue, targeting on the adipocytes. The frictional heat raises the adipocyte temperature to 45 degrees celsius at which they denaturize. This denaturation causes changes in the integrity of the adipocyte membrane, which leads to apoptosis (cell death), with expulsion of the intracellular lipid. The body’s natural removal process then takes over, removing the damaged cells, permanently removing the cells.

MY RESULT AFTER SIX SESSIONS IN A MONTH 

Overall, I noticed a few cm lost from my entire abdomen and flanks with 4cm off from lower abdomen. My curve and abs looked more define too.

WHAT SETS ENCURVE APART?

  • Safely destroys fat cells while protecting epidermis and dermis
  • 2 Applicators for variety of treatment options including abdomen, thigh and arm
  • Customize treatments with Personalized Impedance Synchronization Application Technology (PISATM)
  • Safely leave patient unattended during most of treatment maximizes staff time
  • Easy to install and operate; No consumables
  • 300 Watts deliver ideal power for optimal treatment outcomes
  • Air Mode works to eliminate sweat on tissue to prevent burn risk

ME WITH DR KS WONG

ON MY FINAL THOUGHTS

With my 6 sessions of enCurve at Kowayo Aesthetic, I must say it does work but not a magic.

This medical grade non invasive machine uses radio frequency energy to melt my treated area’s fat cells permanently. The destroyed cells is said to be removed through the body’s natural processes. I did not notice any difference in my urine or stool even though I lost some cm. Also, no weight lost is being observed during this program.

I find enCurve pretty fuss free as it has no downtime and is ideal for those who don’t want surgery or non-responsive to exercise to lose the inches. Considering for being a food blogger and not exercising much, enCurve seemed to be good.

Maintenance is the key of success for anything that works, so if you have gotten the result you wanted, try to adopt a healthier lifestyle to sustain your new body. There is a 1-for-1 promotion for new customers ($400 before gst) and you can call 6884 4297 for enquiries.

The Experience you Must Get at One Farrer Hotel & Spa

Farm & Market to Table? One Farrer Hotel & Spa offers this!

at Origins of Food @ One Farrer Hotel & Spa

Farm to Table and Market to Table are the complete culinary experiences that get us to understand food at its most fundamental and being able to enjoy vegetables or fruits directly from a tree, vine or plant. This was essentially the fundamental concept for the development of Origins of Food, a technology-enabled food studio and specialty retail facility that offers interactive cooking demonstrations and classes conducted by the hotel’s chefs, visiting culinary professionals, as well as home cooks.

the on-site farm @ One Farrer Hotel & Spa

To support this concept, an area for a small herb and spice garden was originally planned. However, as it began to take shape, it became apparent that having an “operating farm” would not only support the Origins of Food concept, but can allow in-hotel residents, as well as Singapore based patrons on how herbs, spices, vegetables and fruits are grown and how to incorporate them into the exciting culinary experiences. The Farm at One Farrer was thus born and soon became an important link in the Farm to Table and Market to Table concepts at One Farrer Hotel & Spa.

spot the fruits!

Currently, there are more than 65 varieties of edible plants, herbs, spices, fruits & vegetables that are being grown within the 11,000 sq ft. farm and orchard. The farm supplies these produces to Origins of Food, as well as other F&B outlets in the hotel premise.

herbs & spices at The Farm too!

Vast supply of the herbs and spices to meet the Hotel’s demands and also good for sales at their Origins of Food retail area, along with a hand selected array of Singapore/regional specialty foods and culinary enabling products.

marketing time! at tekka wet market

As a natural progression, in addition to the above Farm to Table programme, they formulated the brand new Market to Table experience. As part of the Cooking Project series of cooking demonstrations, classes and experiences, One Farrer take each Saturday morning (other days by appointment only) of up to 12 persons at a time on an excursion to the neighbouring Tekka Market. Tekka Market is one of the few remaining truly Asian wet markets left in Singapore.

While at the market, the participants will be introduced to the favourite purveyors, some whose companies and families have been selling at the market for between 25 to 40 years. The guides will assist the participants to understand the marketing process, including on how to source the freshest food items, as well as gaining new insight on incorporating local fresh & seasonal items into their often hectic schedules.

back to the Cooking Studio!

Once back at the Origins of Food – Food Studio, the aprons are put on and everyone learns the techniques of creating good food: food that is good to look at, tastes good and is good for you… a truly Market to Table experience!

Say NO to that Big Sun with Heliocare

Have Fernblock®? Sun will be blocked!

Fernblock® is the key ingredient in the Heliocare oral sunblock. It has been extensively researched and tested in reputable institutes such as Harvard Medical School. The efficacy and safety have been assured through the thorough testing before the launch of the range in 2001. Heliocare supplements are trusted and well-liked by both doctors and consumers.

The packaging

Fernblock® has excellent antioxidant property that is able to reduce free radicals by up to 50%, preventing the formation of hyperpigmentation caused by UV rays. It protects the entire skin surface, increasing the skin’s resistance against sunburn and redness by up to 300%. The protection from Fernblock® also slows down skin aging by up to 55% through the inhibition of collagen depletion caused by UVA.

In a recent study conducted in National Skin Centre, Singapore, 62% improvement in melasma was observed when compared to baseline in just 12 weeks.

Other than protecting your skin from harmful UV rays, Fernblock® repairs existing damage in the cellular level, preventing cell mutation and premature skin aging.

Heliocare Oral is said to provide my skin with maximum sun protection when used in conjunction with topical sunscreen.

Suitable for daily consumption for sun protection and antioxidant benefits.

1 or 2 capsules per day according to need. 60 capsules per bottle.

Consume 30 minutes before sun exposure. Take 2 capsules a day for daily sun exposure – 1 in the morning, 1 in the mid day (i.e. 30 minutes before lunch).Take 4 capsules a day for intense sun exposure – 2 in the morning, 2 in the mid day (3 hours after first dose).

Sunburnt easily without sunblock

I feel that my skin is getting less flushes and not getting sun burnt or darken as easily as before when I’m out in the sun. We should also be taking this to block from harmful UV ray since they can age our skin too. This is my good companion for UV protection (killer for aging skin) and can counter the limitation of topical sunscreen since I don’t apply it on every exposed area of my skin. I can conveniently ‘reapply’ by taking another dose and give protection towards the entire skin surface.

Say yes to sun with Heliocare Oral Sunblock without stickiness

can iSteaks to you? mooooo yessss

Great crowds, prices & food. Totally enjoyable!

I’m astonished by the crowd at iSteaks Diner Holland Village when I was passing by during a non meal period. Curiosity got me and I decided to dine with them. I’m glad I did.

iSteaks Diner started as a humble stall in a coffeeshop selling western grills. Business bloomed and they seized the opportunity to expand. They are now located at Holland Village & Serangoon Gardens MyVillage in a well ventilated & air conditioned restaurant.

The interior radiates casual vibe

The ambiance here is of functional simplicity since they focus on self-service concept. Diners will pick, order and make payment of the meal at the main counter and purchase beverages at the another. Thereafter, proceed to make collection of the utensils and get themselves a table. Orders will be served so diners can sit back to relax and wait for the yummies.

The yummy spread 

Get huge portion western grills where each main is accompanied by 2 sides. Good grill selections such as chicken, pork, lamb, fish and beef are being offered while burgers, bites & pastas are being served too.

Interestingly, they have introduced dry aged beef to their menu recently with australian angus 200 days grain-fed striploin & age it for a good 45+ days.

How different does this taste from your normal beef? I had mine at medium rare and it was really excellent! The dry aged beef is more tender than the normal one, with intense beef flavor. Smell of it is almost buttery with slight toasty aftertaste. Every single cut of it flows flavorful au jus.

A full portion 300gm dry aged beef with 2 complements is available at $51 nett. You can also find striploin, tenderloin, ribeye and even porterhouse (starting from $17.50 to $49 nett).

The menu

The complements for the main are of generous serving and pretty delicious too. My favorites among them are the creamy spinach, onion rings & sautéed brussels.

Although iSteaks Diner majors in their steaks, other meats are also well received since they are tasty, substantial and low in prices.

I’ll be back for more of their grills and this could probably be the reason why many patrons are returning customers.

JUICY!
