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.

600_3433

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.

600_3369

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.

600_3395

600_3399

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.

600_3419

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.

600_3386

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

600_3413

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.

Arch Angel Brow and Eyeliner Embroidery Review

Had the pleasure to head to Arch Angel Brow located at Clementi to try out their Brow and Eyeliner embroidery about two weeks back and am really happy with the results!

AMBIENCE

The place was well decorated and organised. From the front, the store looks pretty small but actually there is another room further inside which is quite spacious. My beautician first drew my eyebrows at the consultation room outside before bringing me into the treatment room. Separated with luxurious curtains, every customer is given adequate privacy.

ARCH ANGEL BROW

Arch Angel Brow was founded by two young aspiring lady entrepreneurs with over eighteen years’ combined experience in the beauty industry. Both specialists in eyebrow embroidery and other beauty services, you may wish to refer to their Facebook page for more information.

In addition, Kelly who was my beautician for the day was also previously a trainer at the popular Allure before opening her own storefront.

KOREAN COMBO EYEBROW EMBROIDERY REVIEW

Did Arch Angel’s specialty, Korean Combo Eyebrows this time. I consulted with Kelly before deciding on doing it as it wasn’t my usual Creative eyebrow type I was doing. I was convinced when Kelly advised me that Korean Combo Eyebrows would add a softer appearance to my look. This is not my first time doing eyebrow embroidery but this is my first time doing Korean Combo eyebrow, which is currently the “in” thing in Korea Beauty industry. The process is longer than the usual Creative eyebrow process because there was more steps involved. I have previously done eyebrow embroidery at other places and the common complaint I had over at those places were the numbing cream wasn’t that useful as I felt pain very quickly into the process. Korean Combo eyebrows are much thicker than the usual creative eyebrows. The front appears thicker and also looks more natural, with lesser dark strokes. Pain was insignificant too. Kelly was also very patient and a true perfectionist. She noticed that my brows were uneven hence she tried her best to make sure that both brows are as even as possible. She redrew my eyebrows several times to ensure that.

NATURAL EYELINER EMBROIDERY REVIEW

I have never done Natural Eyeliner embroidery before but have heard that it is more painful than Eyebrow embroidery. Tried it and thought that the process was not as painful as I have expected but it was slightly uncomfortable because my eyes are definitely more sensitive than other parts of your face. Kelly was very gentle with me but as my eyes are towards the sensitive side, I felt very slight discomfort. Even though I was scared, Kelly tried her best to calm me down and this was very important to me. She was very genuine and sincere in making me feel at ease and had to stop at times when I got really scared.

I have always wanted to do Eyeliner embroidery and am glad I did it. It makes my eyes look more awake than before and I do not need to spend too much time applying eyeliner . I am also glad that now with eyeliner embroidery, the white spaces on my upper inner eyelid is also covered fully as this is the area that I used to find so hard to cover up.

Firma Skin Treatment Review

Hello people!

Headed down to Firma Skin courtesy of Mefitted.com with my good friend, Melissa for their Deep Cleanse & Revitalise treatment and was amazed at the entire procedure and place. We were greeted warmly by the staff upon arriving at the place whom kindly served me hot tea while I filled up the skin questionnaire.

ABOUT FIRMA SKIN

With a wide array of treatment choices available, you will be spoilt for choice!

At Firma Skin, your lifestyle desires and skin care goals are the inspiration behind the scientific research and development in our treatments and products.

They recommended the Deep Cleanse and Revitalise treatment for me based on my requirements and I had no concerns because I trust them fully with my well-being.

DEEP CLEANSE AND REVITALISE TREATMENT

This treatment uses ultrasound to unclog skin pores painlessly, and the latest microdermabrasion technology to refine skin texture and infuse activated nutrient-rich serums to nourish skin. Regular sessions help to maintain a radiant, age-defied complexion.

Recommended for Busy Bee, Minimalist, Road Warrior, Night Owl and Beauty Junkie.

REASONS WHY I LIKE THE PLACE

1. The place has a luxurious touch to it. With a grey theme, everything seems modern and luxurious. It had a futuristic concept in my opinion. Each individual facial cabins had a comfy bed with a thick blanket. The entire cabin had a minimalistic touch to it.

DSC04975 DSC04974 DSC04969 DSC04968 DSC04965 DSC04963 DSC04962

2. My therapist, EM was very professional and gentle. Some other therapists I have met would drip stuff on my hair or neck while applying the mask but there was no such issue under her care. She made sure the mask wouldn’t even drip into my eyes. She also took extra care not to go over the same area with the machine too many times. The last time I did Microdermabrasion at a salon situated in Orchard (rather popular), I had some scarring from there and was quite afraid to go through it again but Firma Skin regained this faith. She would also blanket me each time the blanket falls.

3. The whole procedure was really swift. I never liked lying still for too long so sometimes facial can be a drag to me and intolerable but thank goodness, the entire procedure (well suited for lunch time ladies) went by so quickly, I was actually hoping for more of it. You can see step by step below whats the procedure like.

4. Other places actually charge for ampule but here, they give it to you FOC. Get ready to infuse your skin with a superfine mist of Bird’s Nest Micro-essence and AteloCollagen which is fantastic for the skin.

DSC04944

5. No redness after facial. Unlike other salons who are quite rough, I always end up with a red face after due to the extractions making it difficult for me to head to appointments after.

DSC04951

Just look at my skin glow after the facial, I do not even need to put on makeup! I went straight to office after and my very sharp boss couldn’t even tell the difference!

Eyelash Extensions at Peony Tokyo Nail Salon & Academy

Hello girls!

I have a question, have you ever done eyelash extensions but swore never to do it again? I have felt like this way too many times that I thought of giving up on putting eyelash extensions. I have always wondered why some girls dig eyelash extensions because from what I remembered, I thought it sting-ed really bad during the application, was rather prickly and did not look natural. Thanks to sweetie pie Miyake, who introduced me to Peony Tokyo Nail Academy & Salon, I have now changed my perspective towards eyelash extensions. Thank you Miyake and Rika from Peony Tokyo Nail Academy & Salon!

MORE ABOUT PEONY TOKYO NAIL SALON & ACADEMY

Using only carefully selected, top-quality products in all the services, this quaint and cosy Japanese salon makes me feel right at home. You can do your nails and eyelash extension all at once here. I like how it is away from the bustling city.

DSC04396 DSC04399 DSC04401 DSC04402 DSC04403 DSC04405 DSC04407

WHAT I LIKED ABOUT THE SALON

1. Unlike most salons out there, Peony uses the softest hairs, apparently the type of lashes they use are sable lashes. Softer and lighter compare to mink and silk. It is also natural looking and very gentle for your natural lashes.

DSC04392

2. You can now achieve beautiful natural lashes with a Japanese certified eyelist at Peony today! Yuko chan (my eyelist) was very sweet and gentle with my lashes. She tries not to tug and pull my lashes.

DSC04395

3. Lashes are applied individually, using fine tweezers, carefully applying only one extension lash on one natural lash each time. This is because applying two or more extensions on one natural lash can cause dropping of your natural lash because of the extension lash weight. Also, if more than one natural lash is sticked together with extension, it might cause pain because every lash grows at different speed.

DSC04380 DSC04379

4.  Their eye list takes extra care and does not apply extension on new born and thin lashes, as these lashes cannot withstand extension lash weight and may cause natural lashes to drop.

DSC04384 DSC04386

5.  The main difference and my favourite thing about Peony is that I was given a thorough consultation on the type of lashes I want. They took care of all my needs and wants by going into the length and style of the lashes I would like to have. I chose STYLE: sexy baby, LENGTH: 9, Curl: C curl and TYPE: NATURAL (120 Lashes).

DSC04362 DSC04361 DSC04360 DSC04359 DSC04363 DSC04358

6. A 5 minute walk away from Dhoby Ghaut MRT station, it is such a convenient location!

REVIEW – DYSPORT, THE CLIFFORD CLINIC

Hello you guys!

So it has been about a week since I have done treatments at The Clifford Clinic and things are still looking good! Just a recap, I previously had 1. Dysport for the jaw muscles 2. Hydrafacial for better complexion 3. Fillers for the sunken area under my eye over at The Clifford Clinic. Read all about my virgin experience here!

My complexion has never been better after the hydrafacial treatment. Lesser breakouts and complexion looks more refreshed. Thank you Clifford Clinic for giving me better skin! I also realised my jaw line is more defined and my under eye area less sunken all thanks to Dr Gerard once again.

In this post, I will be reviewing my Dysport experience and will leave the my fillers experience for the next post! Do stay tune if you are interested!

DYSPORT

Dysport, which is used for botox injections and jaw reduction mostly is a specialized technique that seeks to reduce the width of the jawline. In some patients, the the masseter muscle, a chewing muscle, is enlarged creating extra facial width. Dysport  weakens this muscle leading to an overall reduction in the size of this muscle.

Dysport can create a natural, subtle improvement to the  jaw without any downtime or potential complications. Dysport is actually another brand of botox that promises faster and more effective results.  The effects of Dysport may kick in quicker than the effects of Botox. Some research shows that it takes Botox three to five days to work, while Dysport takes effect within one to two days. It may also last longer than Botox injections and is now frequently used by patients who in the past relied on BOTOX.

PERSONAL REVIEW

Having previously done Dysport at another clinic before, I have fallen deeply in love with Dysport ever since! Having heard from a few friends, I understand Botox does not offer the same results as compared to Dysport! Dysport takes effect much faster and lasts longer according to their claims. Dysport, like Botox has temporary results.

As mentioned previously, Dr Gerad is well versed with all the procedures and is a very caring and understanding doctor. He is able to understand my needs very well and treated my concerns with care.

DSC08813

DSC08814

During the procedure, I was asked to hold onto a vibrator-like equipment and press it onto my lower chin. This is a method discovered by Dr Gerad to ease the pain during the injection. This is a great way as I did not feel any pain at all! Most of the concentration was on the vibrating area instead.

3 1

Whoever said “Beauty comes with a price?” This is not true if you go to the right doctor for beauty procedures. I strongly believe doctors should always try to make the patient as comfortable as possible.

If this convinces you, do remember to call up Clifford Clinic for an appointment! Thank you for reading xx

REVIEW – THE PRESTIGE EYEBROW AND LASH SPECIALIST

Hello again!

Just today I went to THE PRESTIGE EYEBROW AND LASH SPECIALIST and had the 3D Nano Korean Eyebrow Embroidery Colouring for my brows at $888! Not my first time at an eyebrow service salon, I have been to a few other eyebrow salons before. The reason why I chose to do eyebrow embroidery is because its fuss free and very convenient. Drawing brows can be such a pain and hence I really hate to draw. Sometimes, it can even be uneven if that day you are having that artistic form in you.

DSC09244

PERSONAL THOUGHTS

Felt like a princess instantly when I entered the salon. There were chandeliers hanging and also very comfy victorian armchairs in the waiting area. Magazines were displayed very nicely and the whole setting was gorgeous!

DSC09248 DSC09247 DSC09246 DSC09245 DSC09241

I was served hot tea while waiting for the therapist to get ready. After a short while, the therapist proceeded to draw my brows. This is to ensure the customers are happy with the eyebrow shape before proceeding with the actual treatment. Being very sweet, the therapist actually went to great lengths to make sure I loved the brow shape otherwise she would redraw until I am satisfied.

After the consultation, we proceeded to the treatment room where my brows were applied with numbing cream for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, the therapist then proceeded with the treatment. I am not going to lie to you. There was slight discomfort but definitely bearable. Being the most sensitive area on my face, I always feel discomfort when doing my eyebrows, but then one thing for sure at Prestige, I felt little pain as compared to other salons.

DSC09253 DSC09256

The whole procedure took about 30 minutes for both brows. In just a short hour, I was done! This is a record breaking time as usually when I do my brows elsewhere, it would take more than 2 hours. The therapists here are more experienced for sure.

DSC09258 DSC09259 DSC09276 DSC09277DSC09279

If you are interested in this procedure, do call them up at 6822 3395 | 6822 3396 or visit their website to find out more! I hope I helped give you some light on eyebrow embroidery at THE PRESTIGE EYEBROW AND LASH SPECIALIST! Thank you for reading. xx

REVIEW – LUSH AESTHETICS

Hello again!

Back to share with you girls a treatment I been through recently! A few days ago, I was invited to LUSH AESTHETICS to try out their FAT FREZE TREATMENT c/o of The Influencer Network.

FAT FREEZE

A non surgical treatment that eliminates stubborn fat. It uses controlled cooling to target and crystallise fat cells. Crystallised fat cells gradually die off, then are naturally eliminated from your body. In the weeks and months following treatment, remaining fat cells condense, reducing the fat layer. Fat Freeze lets you say goodbye to stubborn fat. This procedure is very useful for unwanted bulges  which can be resistant to diet and exercise but not to Fat Freeze.

DSC08950 DSC08952 DSC08953 DSC08954 DSC08955

PERSONAL THOUGHTS

Situated at Tanglin Shopping Centre, about 10 minutes walk away from the Orchard MRT, it is actually quite convenient. When I first entered the clinic, I was greeted sweetly by the counter staff. The staff were all very friendly. I was given tea while filling up the form.

DSC08959 DSC08965 DSC08964 DSC08966 DSC08967

After that, it was consultation time. I was brought into the consultation room and had a brief consultation with the Manager. She kindly explained to me the pros and cons of the procedure as well as the side effects. We proceeded to sign the indemnity form as well.

We then went into the treatment room and there, I was given a robe to change and the therapist then came in to help me perform the procedure. They first applied a gel type liquid before using the machine on my arms. My arms were the treated areas for the day. I am not going to lie. There was slight discomfort during the treatment as the machine was a suction like thing to suck your fats. The side effects would be bruises for about a week! Mine went away in less than 5 days.

DSC08970 DSC08973

Each cup/treated area/arm took about 30 minutes. It is advised that during the procedure, you try to move your fingers so that your blood circulates otherwise you will experience numbness after for a short while.

After a week, I believe it is still too early to tell the effects of the procedure, but I am not worried or anxious as I have previously seen my friends’ effects of the treatment and they have told me Fat Freeze at Lush Aesthetics works which is the main reason why I chose to go to Lush Aesthetics.

PROMOTION

Specially for my readers only. Get 1 cup for $98 and 2 cups for $188. Quote my name when at the clinic. See you guys there! xx

Ultimate Facial Rejuvenation Treatment at Halley Aesthetics

Halley Medical Aesthetics Dr Terence Tan ULtimate Facial Rejuvenation

The other day, I had my first consultation with Dr Terence Tan from Halley Medical Aesthetics where I confided in him on what I am not satisfied with my complexion. Le sigh.

He very kindly recommended their Ultimate Facial Rejuvenation Treatment that promises to target the problems I have such as dullness, redness, visible pores and skin laxation.

ULTIMATE FACIAL REJUVENATION TREATMENT

Halley Medical Aesthetics Dr Terence Tan ULtimate Facial Rejuvenation

This treatment by Halley Medical Aesthetics takes Botox® to new heights by combining it with two synergistic therapies for an optimal and a more radical rejuvenation of the face. This treatment combines Micro-Botox® with laser treatments into one compact treatment for skin toning, firming, brightening, and pore size, inflammation and redness reduction.

This results in smooth, firm skin that glows and shows no visible pores or wrinkles at close up. It is THE treatment for brides-to-be preparing for their big day/wedding photoshoot or for those preparing for a big event.

For more information on the treatment, please read here.

Halley Medical Aesthetics Dr Terence Tan ULtimate Facial Rejuvenation

This facial rejuvenation programme by Halley Medical Aesthetics features a trio of treatments with Micro-Botox® as the highlight of the programme:

A Micro-Botox® Treatment

A “Long Pulsed” Restoration Laser

A “Q-Switched” Brightening Laser

This was my first consultation and I like Halley Medical Aesthetics so much already!

THE PREPARATION

Halley Medical Aesthetics Dr Terence Tan ULtimate Facial Rejuvenation

The friendly nurse removed my makeup, washed my face thoroughly and applied numbing cream on my skin.

Dr Terence Tan is not only very professional, he also tries to keep the atmosphere less stressful and less nerve wrecking for his patients.

As I wasn’t exactly sure what was the treatment about, I clarified my questions with Dr Terence Tan who very patiently answered my queries.

Halley Medical Aesthetics Dr Terence Tan ULtimate Facial Rejuvenation

After a few minutes, Dr Terence Tan calmed me down by demonstrating how Botox looks like.

It is almost invisible to the naked eye and actually only a very small amount is required for the treatment.

THE LONG PULSED RESTORATION LASER

Halley Medical Aesthetics Dr Terence Tan ULtimate Facial Rejuvenation

Halley Medical Aesthetics Dr Terence Tan ULtimate Facial Rejuvenation

The “Long Pulsed” Restoration Laser process was performed first and the whole procedure went by pretty quickly, merely feeling like minor ant bites.

This laser is used to firm the skin through stimulation of collagen production through cells in the skin called fibroblasts. The laser also targets hemoglobin within blood vessels, removing fine veins and redness caused by inflammation and acne.

As my eye area is rather sensitive, Dr Terence Tan very gently went over it at my request.

THE MICRO-BOTOX INJECTIONS

Halley Medical Aesthetics Dr Terence Tan ULtimate Facial Rejuvenation

After the laser, we went forward with the Micro Botox procedure, which was injected directly into the skin to give a natural looking mini facelift. Dr Terence Tan first drew some markings on my face so he would know where to insert.

Halley Medical Aesthetics Dr Terence Tan ULtimate Facial Rejuvenation

Halley Medical Aesthetics Dr Terence Tan ULtimate Facial Rejuvenation

Halley Medical Aesthetics Dr Terence Tan ULtimate Facial Rejuvenation

Micro-Botox® treatment is when diluted Botox® is injected in very small doses on areas like the jawline, under eye area, and cheeks for skin rejuvenation.

Unlike regular Botox® treatments, Micro-Botox® is injected in skin and not into the muscles that control facial expression. The injected Micro-Botox® rejuvenates the skin resulting in firmer, less oily skin with smaller pores.

Micro- Botox® also gives a natural-looking mini facelift due to the tightening of skin. In doing so, it freshens up the skin as it removes fine wrinkles and refines skin texture.

I had about 10 Jabs along each jawline and about 10 jabs on each cheek and a few other jabs on the forehead and under each eye. I wouldn’t lie to you.

This wasn’t exactly painless but still bearable and worth the effort if you are as vain as me. I would say the jaw area was the most uncomfortable. I didn’t felt much at the eye area and forehead.

THE Q SWITCHED BRIGHTENING LASER

Halley Medical Aesthetics Dr Terence Tan ULtimate Facial Rejuvenation

To complete the treatment, the “Q-switched” Brightening Laser was then used to even out my skin tone by removing pigments and accentuate reduction of pore size and fine wrinkles.

This treatment is important to bring a fresh, glittering glow back to the face. I was quite ok with this laser because whenever it was getting too warm, Dr Terence Tan would lower the temperature for me.

Halley Medical Aesthetics Dr Terence Tan ULtimate Facial Rejuvenation

Other than being too warm at times when the laser is going over the same area a few times, it was practically painless.

I did not feel anything at all during the laser, and I have always thought I have a smaller tolerance as compared to other people!

After the procedure, I did not face any significant side effects. The bumps were pretty obvious for the first 2-3 hours with some redness. It looked as if I got bitten several times by mosquitoes. I even continued to study after the treatment for my exam the next day.

I did not have any headaches or felt drowsy after the treatment.

MY OVERALL EXPERIENCE WITH ULTIMATE FACIAL REJUVENATION TREATMENT

Halley Medical Aesthetics Dr Terence Tan ULtimate Facial Rejuvenation

As I have always had slight rosacea, this treatment did not make my skin any worse or more sensitive, which is absolutely great!

My complexion became brighter and my pores were less visible over the next two weeks.

At the second week, my skin was at its prime. It was glowing and those who saw me complimented on my glowing complexion.

Overall, I am very satisfied with the results and would definitely do it again! If collagen or vitamins aren’t doing much of a favour, brides-to-be can consider this treatment!

Results from one session can last up to 4 months. It is best to do this procedure at least 2 weeks before the big day.

Halley Medical Aesthetics Dr Terence Tan ULtimate Facial Rejuvenation

PRICE
Halley Medical Aesthetics’ Ultimate Facial Rejuvenation Programme is priced at S$950.

RESULTS & DOWNTIME
Results are immediate and patients can expect the most optimal results a week after treatment.

It may also last longer than Botox injections and is now frequently used by patients who in the past relied on BOTOX.

REVIEW

Given that my face is already considered small, I still find my jaw looking pretty huge from the side and it is not ideal for a petite frame like mine. Many of you should already be aware of the botox brand named BOTOX by Allergan. Both Dysport and BOTOX are injectable forms of Botulinum Toxin Type A. In less than a week, I have felt my muscles weakening and also felt soreness in my jaw during mealtime. This is perfectly normal and is due to the effects of Dysport working hard.

I like that Dr Elias Tam is very gentle and often reassured me that the pain will be very minimal which yes indeed it is. I would rate the pain level to be 3/10 if you are rather afraid of needles. For me, I am relatively unafraid of needles so it felt like a tiny fast prick on my face. It felt like nothing at all. There was minimal blood as well but that I couldn’t see so for those who are afraid of blood do not worry, you will not see it.

Rest assure that you are in safe hands at EHA Clinic. They have the latest equipment in house and are fully equipped with a range of makeup for you to put your makeup on after the treatment. It is very important to seek from a true professional when experiencing such aesthetic treatments so you don’t meet with any rare complications.

As you can see from the BEFORE/AFTER pictures, you will see my jawline was not as smooth before. It is now smoother as seen from the AFTER photo.
