Total Face Makeover by Privé

Hi all! I’m finally here to share with you my makeover experience at Privé!

Firstly, let’s take a close look at my face before I have any treatment done. Let’s spot the problems! I’ve like a puffy face, imagine the puffer fish or look at my photo below. And my nose, there’s totally no bridge at all. >< My face is like pretty flat and so Dr Soh suggested to do nose and cheek fillers and I was promised a very visible difference.

The first process being starting any treatments is to remove the makeup on the areas that is going to be treated and then apply numbing cream on those areas. In my case, it’s the nose and cheeks area as you can see from the photo below. You can’t really feel the needles after the numbing cream except for a little prick.

This was after the nose and one side of the cheeks were done. The cheek fillers are to create volume and lift up the cheekbone area. Check out the difference!

Here’s when everything’s done. If you noticed, there were slight bruising on the cheeks but it’s perfectly normal! The bruise were gone after resting for a day. XD

Fillers used for my treatment was RADIESSE Volumizing filler which contains Calcium Hydroxylapatite microspheres in a water-based gel. The gel will be absorbed overtime and the body will metabolize the microspheres and only our own natural collagen will be left behind. RADIESSE is also the only dermal filler that actually provides long lasting results and formation of new collagen.

According to Dr Soh, the fillers will last up to 9 to 12 months.

Checking out myself after the fillers were done. I was pretty overwhelmed by the results which was immediate as you could see. I felt that with my new nose and lifted cheeks, I was given a new lease of life. Not that I had a face off, as you can see, I’m still me. Just that my newly defined features gave me confidence. Especially in the case of my nose, which I had gotten picked on before. I was blessed with pretty nice eyes and lips, so all that’s left to be criticized by people was my nose. And now, they are left with nothing that they can criticized on. :’)

A photo with Chanel, MFP TV’s Host and Dr Karen Soh who did magic on my face! XD Thanks so much Dr Soh!

Another photo with Chanel and Bianca! My facial expressions looks a little stiff as the effects of the numbing cream have not gone off.

Now, a closer look at the before and after photos! Frontal where you can see the cheeks on the left before were like flat. On the right which is after, the cheeks are fuller and more defined.

Next the nose, on the left, totally flat and it’s like a huge bottom. On the right, see the bridge and more pointy nose! XD

This photo below was taken by my phone 3 days after the treatment. Features are defined, giving the face a more 3 dimension look. And yes, no liquidfying of the face at all, I have a V-shaped face. It’s further defined and more obvious after the cheek fillers. Friends commented that I somehow look nicer (from the guys) and some love my new nose bridge and how it looks more defined! Some said my face looked smaller also!

Photo below is taken one week after the treatment. To be honest, if I did not tell you about it, will you have knew it that I went for fillers? Everything looked so natural! After the treatment, I’m very happy about my more defined look and it made me more confident. Lesser make up is used, no need to shade that nose nor the jaw area anymore. XD I feel good in my bare skin and I’m really a happier person now. xD

Consultation at Privé

20120715-015846.jpgWent for a consultation at Privé with Dr Karen Soh on Saturday morning to determine the procedures that I’ll be doing for my face makeover! I would say it’s best to have a rough idea of what you want when doing fillers/botox. Do you want a sharper nose, smaller jaw etc? It’s easier that way and Dr Soh will advice you if it’s suitable for you etc.

20120715-015935.jpg

By looking at my photo, I’m pretty sure you guys know that I wanted to do something about that flat nose bridge. So I told Dr Soh I wanted fillers for the nose and perhaps botox to slim down the cheeks cause I’ve a puffy face. I also asked for her recommendation and she suggested cheek fillers as my cheek area right above the cheek bone is quite flat.

To be honest, I did not actually realized my cheek area is flat. In a way, sometimes the areas we think need alteration are fine but those we think is fine might need some enhancement. Which is why it’s good to seek professional advice. But of course, beauty is subjective.

20120715-015952.jpg

I’m actually quite happy after the consultation as Dr Soh commented that I’ve high cheekbones, strong chin and relatively nice jawline. Hee!

And so I’m going to do my procedures very soon and I can’t wait for my new look! Plus it’s my very first aesthetic fillers procedure! (I’m scared of needles though. >;<;) So excited! Hee! Stay tune to my update on my new look! XD

Review: Tanda Zap

Hi all!

Today I’m doing a review on Tanda Zap! Tanda Zap uses blue light technology and sonic vibrations to fight against zits! The blue light actually kills the bacteria that causes acne and clear them up!

 

 

Standing at only 3 inches, it’s easy to bring out especially for travel! Imagine a zit popping out when you’re travelling and you won’t feel like taking photos cause of that tiny zit! But if you have the Tanda Zap with you, there’s no need to worry much!

 

The Tanda Zap works on 3 AA size batteries! Tanda Zap provides 2 minutes treatments each time and each set of batteries can last for about 40 treatments. The lifespan of the device is 1000 treatments. This device is retailing at $98. So 10 treatments is equal to $1 which I find it’s quite worth it!

 

Promise a fuss free treatment to get rid of your zits!

 

Be careful not to look into the blue light directly with your eyes!

 

Super easy to use! Just need to put the device over your zits for 2 minutes and you’re done! 2 to 3 times a day, and you can see significant changes to your zits the next day!

 

Just like this! Put it over your zit and wait for 2 minutes!

 

Here’s a little comparison picture after 3 treatments in 1 and a half days.

 

Have been using the device for about a month and it does help me clear up my acne! Works well on those bigger acne for me though! Now my brother is using it everyday and his acne is clearing up quite quickly too!

I personally think that this is great for emergency treatments for individual acne but of course you need a different product for the scarrings left behind.

I would definitely recommend this to those who wants fast solutions to getting rid of their acne! Also this is better then topical treatments as there will be no irritation nor allergies to blue light! 😛

Hopefully this review helps! XD

Tanda Zap is being distributed in Singapore and Malaysia by http://www.clariancy.com/

SBA2011: Nano 139 Facial with Adonis

I’m here to share with you all on my second facial experience with Adonis last Monday.

In fact, I was scheduled to have the Chakra Body Treatment but the consultant recommend to go through this detox facial after checking up on my skin condition. She said that since I just did the Sparkle Peel Facial awhile ago, my skin condition is most suitable to go through this detox facial which is named the Nano 139 facial to repair and replenish the moist in my skin.

Brighten up your skin with this cocktail of 139 different minerals and enzymes. This special concoction is designed to help repair, activate, and provide energy to skin cells, leaving your skin with a healthy, natural glow.

– Taken from Adonis Beauty‘s Website

 

Standard procedures of Adonis~ I was served tea while waiting to start my facial.

And of course a foot bath before heading in the facial room for my treatment.

At the start of the facial, the beautician cleanse my face and apply a Soft Peeling Gel which is different from that which was used during the Sparkle Peel treatment. The one used in the Sparkle Peel was water soluble whereas the one used in this treatment, we can feel the dead skin being rubbed out. After that, she applied Comedone on my face which will help in the removal of blackheads. I was put under the Cool Mist while letting the Comedone work on my skin.

After that, my beautician push in this machine. First, she used the “Scrabber” which is a blade to “scrap” through my skin to remove the impurities in my clogged pores. After this step, she showed me the water used and it’s cloudy and has the impurities that was removed from my skin.

Next, she asked me to hold on to this metal ion rod which has two ends. The other end she use it to roll and massage my face. Of course, she applied a serum before using the metal ion rod to massage the serum into my face. This is to allow the serum to be fully absorbed into the skin cells through the usage of ion energy.

The serum smells like vinegar to me and this is because the serum consists of organic enzymes. I find it ok as it’s better for them to use something natural that don’t really smell good rather then something that smell good as they added extra things that are not needed in the concoction.

After the serum was worked into my skin, the beautician applied a clay mask on my face and left me to rest for 20 minutes while the mask hardens. She then removes the mask and applied toner and moisturizer on my face.

Here’s a pic of me right after the facial. My skin feels more supple and I definitely felt more refreshed.

I was told that similar to the Sparkle Peel, I would experience slight purging of blackheads and acne as the way this facial works is to purge the impurities from within the skin.

This facial is recommended for people with blemished skin as it works from deep within the skin to clear out the impurities. Even people with normal complexion can do this facial to detox the skin.

Do check out Adonis FB for tips and information!
