Spotted around the mall, you can find a life sized carousel with laced motif reindeers and miniature christmas trees. My favorite has to be the reindeers because I have never seen anything like that. They reminded me of how Christmas should be; alluring. Outside the mall, be sure to check out their 8-metre tall Christmas tree and candy cane chairs perfect for photo taking. What caught my eye was the life sized ballerinas too. Great photo opportunities can be found all over the mall so be sure to walk around because even at the other entrance there are decorations to take photos with. I had so much fun taking photos from point to point.

TOTALLYHOTSTUFF STORE

This store is really cute filled with pretty and unique functional cups or essential oil burners. There are even little pot plants where you can diy from scratch. I am already thinking of getting the fortune cat mug for my friends who are building up their career and business! For my dad, I am thinking of getting the diy vegetable garden kit because he loves to build his own garden by himself.

Thigh Skin Tightening Secrets with Halley Medical Aesthetics

Most people who have seen me now would never believed I was fat once. I was about 10kg heavier than my current weight about 3 years back in University due to the stress levels I had. I was called fat by my best friend and even my mom when I returned to Singapore! Though I slimmed down after, there were some areas that had loose skin like my arms and thighs.

CONSULTATION WITH HALLEY MEDICAL AESTHETICS

I am a pants and jeans person but couldn’t wear them and due to this reason, I decided to undergo treatment with Halley Medical Aesthetics. Thankfully, Dr Terence Tan recommended this treatment called Tightlase 3D Laser Skin Tightening to me which is effective for tightening loose skin with some degree of fat removal. Not the first time undergoing treatments with Dr Terence Tan, I am glad I am doing this thigh treatment with him again as its always more comfortable doing procedures with doctors you can trust.

For the laser to reach its maximum effects, it is necessary to go for at least 4-5 sessions. Each treatment session costs $380 (inclusive of GST). The treatment has two different modes

1) Skin Tightlase in the first mode gently but consistently heats the tissues in the deeper layer in order to tighten the skin.

2) In the second mode, the treatment heats tissues at a superficial layer to cause skin tightening and a modest degree of lipolysis (fat removal).

REVIEW

At Halley Medical Aesthetics, I always feel safe as they use the latest technology. This time they used the iPAD to check and maintain a consistent heat in my skin tissue so as to ensure tightening without burning the skin.

Dr Terence Tan as usual is very friendly and assuring. His friendly nature makes me feel at ease. Just look at him in the picture below for reassurance.

Before starting the procedure, Dr Terence Tan and the clinic assistant would draw the areas that need to be treated. The treated areas were the inner, outer and back of the thighs.

During the procedure, when the machine was getting heated, I did not feel anything at all but as it becomes hotter (everyone has a certain limit towards temperatures, mine is 43 degrees), the feeling felt like multiple ant bites but bearable. You can also ask Dr Terence Tan to stop for a break if required. The procedure took some time because there were three areas (inner, outer and back of the thighs) to treat.

There was no awkwardness throughout even though he was treating my upper thigh areas because everything was conducted in a professional manner and a female nurse would always be next to me to ensure I am comfortable.

At various intervals, Dr Terence Tan would also crack some jokes to lighten the atmosphere.

As this is my first treatment so far, it is too early to comment on the result. I do feel the skin around has become slightly tighter, but the result is not visible to the naked eye yet. At least now I do feel more confident when wearing jeans or pants! I look forward to my next treatment as I hope to achieve slimmer thighs soon! Do keep a lookout for my next review.
