PDO Nose Threadlift treatment at Halley Medical Aesthetics.

 

I’m very fortunate that I have good eyesight apart from the fact that I’m night-blind, because this means that I don’t need to wear glasses. But for the sake of protecting my eyes from sun
damage, I do still need to wear sunglasses and here’s where I have a problem. My nose-bridge is almost non-existent and this means glasses sit on my cheeks instead of my nose.

So I was very thankful when I got to meet Dr. Terence Tan from Halley Medical Aesthetics and understood how a threadlift treatment done to my nose bridge could help me with this problem. The best part is how it would also help enhance the features of my nose without surgery or implants.
Threadlift is a minimally invasive treatment used to:
– help tighten the skin
– contour and help rejuvenate the face, neck, and eye area
– enhance the shape of the nose

How does the Threadlift procedure work?

This non-surgical procedure uses absorbable ultra-fine threads with anchors, like cones, which are inserted under the skin and act like scaffolds. This has a lifting effect on sagging skin.

  • These threads work to continuously stimulate the skin over time to produce collagen for a long-lasting and natural looking lift, and the effects can last up to 2 years.
    Because the threads are anchored on to the skin, it stays where it’s inserted.

During the consultation with Dr. Terence Tan, he explained to me about how the procedure would help me achieve a more contoured nose bridge and my nose tip.

He recommended the Y-KO/N-Finders PDO (polydioxanone) threads for my nose threadlift treatment. He also explained that these threads use cogs or tiny hooks for anchoring, which would eventually become fully absorbed by the body. I was so relieved that no incisions or stitches were necessary at all. Yay!

What I really appreciate about this procedure is how it’s not invasive like rhinoplasty, and yet the effects can last beyond two years because of how collagen and blood vessels would have grown around the treatment site. So the nose would still look more contoured as compared to pre-procedure.

Yes, even after having been through 4 C-sections, I still cannot stand the thought of getting cut at all. Shudders….. So knowing that this procedure would not involve any incision was very reassuring.

Can you see the relief on my face?

 

This is the product that Dr. Terence Tan used for my nose threadlift procedure. The Y-KO/N-Finders PDO thread is fully absorbable by the body and the ultrafine thread would be inserted under the skin at the targeted area where it would stimulate the production of collagen and fibroblasts. This process leaves no scars and the skin lifting and contouring effects are immediate.

The Procedure

Looking forward to the procedure after having all my questions answered.

Dr. Terence Tan marked a line at the centre of my nose to serve as a guide during treatment.

Local anesthetic was also applied before the thread was inserted.

I hardly felt any discomfort at all after the anesthetic kicked in and as the threads were inserted, I was surprised at how I could still carry on a simple conversation with the doctor. That’s how simple the procedure is! And all in all including the waiting time for the anesthetic to kick in, it actually took less than an hour.

The photos below show where the needle was inserted to guide the thread in and position it in the right place.

Right after the procedure, we took some after shots to compare with the ones we took before just less than an hour ago, and these are the immediate results!

You can clearly see that my nose bridge is sharper and overall my nose is more contoured. I am really happy with the results and the best part is how you can quickly make this a lunchtime treatment without any downtime needed. I even went on to teach a class, a couple of hours after this.

Seeing the before and after pictures, and now being able to wear my sunglasses without having it slipped off my nose and sitting on my cheeks, I have only wished I had done this earlier!

I’m clearly pleased with the results of the threadlift treatment that was done at Halley Medical Aesthetics and I would confidently recommend them to anyone looking to enhance their features or achieve a more defined look for their nose.

Taken just minutes after I left the clinic. I love how there was no swelling or bruising after the procedure and that I could just go about my usual activities.

Taken two weeks after the threadlift treatment.

I’m convinced at how safe and convenient this treatment is and would highly recommend Halley Medical Aesthetics to anyone considering a nose threadlift.

Coco & Eve Like a Virgin Hair Masque Review

Being someone who spends a lot of time on outdoor activities and being under the sun, I do have to put in even more effort and care when it comes to looking after my hair and skin. And especially since I have long hair, it shows very easily when my hair is dry and stressed from being outdoors in the humidity and in the swimming pool.
With four active little girls, it is inevitable that we spend a lot of playtime outdoors and in the water and I’m very particular when it comes to choosing suitable hair care products as they do enjoy using the same products as their mommy does. A fragrant scent is a must-have and so is the ease of use. I really don’t have the luxury of time when it comes to sitting a hair salon often for a treatment and neither does it work for me to spend too much time in the
bathroom waiting for hair oils or masks to take effect after half an hour.

When I was introduced recently to Coco & Eve Like a Virgin Hair Masque, I was immediately smitten with the lovely scent of the product. The adorable packaging and pink Tangle Tamer was a really nice touch too. My kids have even been taking turns brushing their manes with it ever since it came out of the box.

Opening the adorable box that the mask and Tangle Tamer came in just made me smile because I absolutely love the tropics and this just makes me think of coconut trees and the beach!
Now what’s so special about Coco & Eve’s Hair Masque apart from the beautiful scent and lovely packaging? It’s actually vegan friendly, animal-friendly (not tested on animals) and gluten free! Its also made without parabens which can dry out and damage our hair,and is free from phathalates and sulphates that is
present in over 98.9% of other hair products out there. As a mother to young children, this is definitely good news for me and I am more than happy to share my first tub of hair masque from Coco & Eve with them.
The ingredients in the hair masque actually include raw virgin coconuts and fig, which are superstars when it comes to restoring your hair and it shows even after just one treatment! The other ingredients include shea butter, argan oil and linseed. These together help to hydrate our manes, prevent split ends, unfizz hair and add glorious shine that I really appreciated after I dried my hair from the first treatment.
The pastel pink Tangle Tamer came in really handy when it comes to evenly
spreading the hair masque from root to tip in the shower.
I love how I only need to leave the masque on for only 10 minutes to reap the full benefits of the hydrating and restoring benefits of the powerful ingredients.

Check out my before and after pictures below. You can clearly see how after just one use Coco & Eve’s Like a Virgin Hair Masque has helped smoothen out my hair. But the softness of my mane and that wondrous tropical fragrance is what
convinces me to want to stock up on this power-packed hair care product
already.

Not only is my hair so soft to touch now after using the hair masque for over a week, I also noticed that my split ends have been repaired and tamed. The silky texture of my hair stays that way even after playing outdoors for hours with my kids! And you imagine how happy I am that my girls all have that same silky soft feel to their hair because I don’t have to worry about tangles and brushing their hair all the time. I only wish there could be a packaging it comes in that makes it so convenient to travel with and take along in my gym bag every day.

At the of how my kids and I are using up this gem of a hair masque, I’m so going to order a few more tubs online at cocoandeve.com just to make sure that we don’t run out of this ridiculously great product!

Thank you Coco & Eve for pampering my little girls and I. This is definitely a must-have staple in our household now!
