And this after pic, taken just right before my 2nd appt (2 days ago). My face has much more glow in it! And scars definitely lessen by like a good 20% – 30%:

I’m really glad with the results in just 1 treatment! However, a few more sessions of treatments will be needed to see better results! I will record my progress as time goes by.

 

So the nurse will assist you in cleansing your makeup (if any) before applying the numbing cream. Anyway it’s Christine who helped me with it and I must really compliment her for her attentiveness. Despite many patients that she meet everyday, she remembers my skin condition on my first visit. She told me that my skin got so much better and it’s progressing well (then showing me my before picture on their ipad), she even remember that I did not want to remove my eye make cos I want to take before and after pics, hahaha. Such little gestures made my day, totally. Thank you Christine!

VENUSVIVA PLEASE BE GOOD I WANT GLOWY & DEWY SKIN!! *determined*

 

And next up followed by soft mask! That’s to cool down your skin.

 

I think I’m really good at blind selfies, hahaha! I took this photos using my front camera and they are all so nicely fitted in the frame.

Applied moisturizer and sunblock and you’re good to go!

 

Once again, my red face did not fail to bring me weird stares. But not to worry the redness subsides in a day!

 

A selfie at the night right after treatment……..
Right, you’ll see bars and bars of bumpy bumps. That’s normal, and it’ll go away after you wake up the next day.

Modern Style Salon @ Tampines

Pop by at Modern Style Salon a week ago for a new change. Anyway, I really love the location and being tucked in a not-so-busy area though it’s in Tampines Central! I mean, you wouldn’t want it to be doing your hair in a hustle bustle place, yes? Moreover Tonny does more on booking basis, this is how he will dedicate his time and do your hair only instead of doing many customers at one go.

 

Anyways, this time round, I want a THREE-TONE HIGHLIGHT and I showed Tonny the photo of the model’s hair (lol it’s an angmoh, am not going to post that picture cos very bhb hahaha) that I wanted and he had it executed for me!

 

Bye boring black hair for now. I can’t live with the same color for more than 3 months :(

Pardon my tired face, light makeup cos I just did my skin laser!!

 

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
My hair’s suppose to be black I don’t know why it appears brown here.

 

And yes….. you’ll definitely have to bleach your hair if you are thinking of three-tone highlights too. But no worries Tonny will make sure your hair will still be strong and healthy despite the bleaching!

I’ve sat there for like a good 4 hours? Cos there’s alot of work to be done for such kind of highlights. And definitely, a good stylist is gonna do the job well!

Here’s how it looks like! I really love the platinum blonde strips.

VenusViva the New Skin Resurfacing Machine

Went to O Medical Clinic @ Wheelock Place after my work to get my first session of skin resurfacing done with them.

 

I’m going to review more about the new technology by VenusViva in this post!

 

If you have been reading my blog, you would have know that I have gone through several different kinds of laser for my skin, due to acne scars, blemishes, large pores and also sunspots. I don’t mind spending a little just to get my baby smooth skin back. I think little make up is needed or even no make up once you have glowy, healthy and dewy skin. Cos I really hate to be slapping on make up on my skin to clog up the pores even more, it’s definitely a chore!

 

I can’t wait to be confident once again without my make up!!!

 

So girls, if you are facing the same issue as I do, READ ON!

My skin feels sore, hot and tight after the treatment. And I would say the pain level is about 7/10 even with the help of numbing cream. I can’t imagine it without!! You will feel tiny weeny needles each time they apply the shots. Ok but I’m one who can endure pain so I was still pretty calm throughout. I’m the kind of ai sui mai mia one so I will endure anything for beauty sake hehehe.

And then the lovely nurses will help you out with the mask aftermath, and that’s to soothe your skin. After which they will apply moisturizer and sunblock and you’re DONE!

 

Remember your shades too!!! It helped me to cover half of my face in case people give you weird stares at your face.

 

Here’s 2 picture update on my skin after the treatment:

Day 1 after the treatment.
You can see many boxes on my face lol that’s because this is how the laser looks like.

 

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

 

Day 3 after the treatment.
Part of the boxes already dried up as you can see hahaha. And then it will slowly start to peel as days pass by.

 

The maintenance is easy, just moisturize your skin daily and slap on enough sunblock before heading out!

 

You will probably need about 6 treatments(depending on the condition of the skin) to see full results. I’M DEFINITELY GOING FOR IT!!!

If you have no idea what Black Box is about, you are definitely missing out on something. You must be wondering. What! Not another beauty box again.

 

Black box isn’t your traditional beauty box but definitely a boxful of joy!
In Black Box April, there’s several products that I’ve been wanting to try before getting a full retail pack! Like…. 1. Nuxe White – that is proven to reduce the appearance of dark spots, improves transparency and clarity of the complexion and the rosy appearance of the skin. And 2. Phyto Secret De Nuit – it’s like a sleeping hair mask! A non-rinse formula that contains 92% ingredients of botanical origin and takes into account the importance of the five senses. The lightweight and non-greasy texture is suitable for all hair types and will not leave any stains on your pillow. 3. Himalaya Lip Balm – it came just in time!!!! I’ve no idea why I get chapped lips these days and yayyyyy a great lip balm just came to my rescue!

 

Besides these great products, what awes me was the speedy delivery!! IT.WAS.REAAAAAAL.FAST!

 

 

How can you get hold of this box?

 

All you have to do is subscribe to Black Box at www.blackbox.sg/index.php#1. And did I say it is a bi-monthly box? The next edition will be in June (that’s next month!). You can do the math when the next next edition will be available.

Went over for the Clear + Brilliant laser during lunch time. It was a pretty fast procedure that consists of consultation, washing off your makeup (if any), numbing cream and laser that probably took me only 1 1/2 hour? However you will have to be prepared to leave the clinic with a fairly red skin, the redness with subside within a day.

 

Now, let me bring you throughout the whole process.

Here’s Ann helping me with the applying of numbing cream, that was left on my skin for the next 30 mins.

Treatment started with “low” for my skin to get used to the laser before they proceed to higher power.

 

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

And that’s Dr. Louis Loo with the treatment. Dr. Loo will increase the power of the treatment accordingly and if you wouldn’t mind the redness of the skin. For me, I’m perfectly fine with the redness as long as my skin gets better with lesser sessions. And hence, my treatment was done with the higher intensity.

 

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

 

 

The whole procedure was real fast that was done within like 20 mins? And I would say the pain level was probably around 2/10 with the help of numbing cream. I felt only heat on my skin. But as they set it to higher power it will get somewhat warmer on the skin but it’s still painless.

 

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

 

 

I was given a few creams and sunblock mainly, 1. Golden lipid complex, 2. Intensive barrier, 3. Sunblock with SPF50. That will be my daily skincare for the next 2 weeks. It is best not to apply other creams during the healing period I suggest.

That will be how red my face look like right after the treatment.

 

 

It has been a week after 1 session of Clear + Brilliant treatment and my skin looks a lot more glowy and radiant with lighter scar marks and smoother skin. And I would say this treatment takes lesser downtime than many other lasers that I have done. The redness took less than half a day to subside. However my skin feels rough for the next 3-4 days but you can still put on your make up after the daily 3-step skincare regime. Till today my skin has been totally renewed however there was still some stubborn acne scars. I will definitely be going to Niks Maple Laser Clinic for the next 2-3 treatments for maintenance.

 

Besides having this awesome laser treatment, they do offer liposonix machine to burn off your fats too! But you must have at least one inch of fats around your tummy area to be treated, best for people who has a little protruding tummy and new mummies!

 

A little description about liposonix

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

 

 

Here’s some FAQs if you are keen in this Liposonix treatment from Niks Maple!

What is it?

A non-surgical, non-invasive fat reduction treatment that uses high-intensity focused ultrasound energy (HIFU) to permanently destroy fat cells.

1-1-1 (1 Treatment, 1 Hour & 1 Inch Size Down)

Why Liposonix?

Custom Contouring Ability: The ability to customise the area of treatment for each patient’s need.

Dual Tissue Response: Tighten the skin at the same time as you lose that inch because of its technology

Consistent treatment delivery: Unlike many other body contouring procedures, the Liposonix treatment produces smooth results due to its unique, advanced delivery technology. No cases of uneven or lumpy results have been reported.

Who should do Liposonix?

The Liposonix treatment is ideal for active, healthy individuals who have at least 1 inch or 2.5 cm of fat to lose in their abdomen or flanks. It is non-invasive, so it is a great solution if you have stubborn fat but don’t want to have surgery.

How long will the results last?

Most people see the best results in 8 – 12 weeks. This is how long it takes for the body to naturally metabolize the destroyed fat tissue.

Is it painful?

Sensation during treatment: As with most aesthetic treatments, some patients may experience mild discomfort. During treatment, you may feel cold, prickling, tingling, warmth, mild discomfort, or pain. After treatment, you may have temporary redness, mild bruising, discomfort, and swelling. To increase your comfort, the staffs will assess and determine what pain management, if any, is necessary for you.
