Mediviron UOA Clinic Sets Its Eye On Vietnam Tourist, Making Aesthetic Treatments Accessible Conveniently & Safe - Q&A

After the signing, there was a Q&A session with Dr Chen and Mr Adams opened for the media.

1. How long has this collaboration being planned in the timeline?

At approximately for 2 – 3 years

2. Why Malaysia?

They would like to re-channel it to Malaysia as to do something different and unique. Also to focus what’s available here and to increase the amount as there is an increment of medical tourism to 20%.

3. What is the target from Vietnam?

Of course, as much as possible. Currently, Mediviron UOA Clinic have 50% patients from Malaysia and the rest of 50% are from Europe, Iran and Singapore, not many Vietnamese are coming yet. They would like to be the first to tap into the market.

4. What is the procedure price ranging at?

They are ranging from MYR100 – MYR 22,000 depending on the which treatment to undergo and they are non invasive and non surgical treatments.

5. How much revenue growth are you expecting from this collaboration?

Mediviron UOA Clinic is looking at least 10 – 20% growth from the current revenue if possible.

6. Do you have any visiting surgeons or any attachments from Vietnam to consult the procedures?

Mediviron UOA Clinic do not have this as we are focusing to have Vietnamese tourist to come to our clinic to have their treatment done. Maybe there might be a need in the future that Mediviron UOZ Clinic might need someone from Vietnam to refer  to for someone to come to Malaysia for treatments.

7. What happened when patients face complications?

Our treatments are mainly non-invasive,  there is a minimal risk. Mediviron UOA Clinic do not do surgery and the recovery  period will be less than a week . We have no worries of anticipating major complications. We encourage our patients if they have any problems to visit them again or if they are away or overseas, they could call or email us.

We will also get a specific recovery time from Mediviron UOA Clinic and we would strongly recommend that they stay in Malaysia during that recovery time and they do not leave until they pay their final visit to the clinic to confirm their viable health.

8. How much cheaper are the rates  here as to compare with Vietnam?

Take for example of Botox in Vietnam, they are priced at USD900, that’s every expensive. They can fly here and have the treatment done in Malaysia for that price. The reason behind it is because that they have very heavy taz and they are considered to be luxury items. Botox and fillers are considered luxury items that they have high tax. A lot of pharmaceutical  comes in with no tax on it but those items are heavily taxed.

9. Do you have any plans to collaborate with other countries after Vietnam?

In Mediviron UOA Clinic, we have a a good number of patients comes from other countries such as Europe, America, Middle East and our neighbouring country, Singapore because our treatments are still cheaper after the conversion of currency.  The starting stage is Vietnam tourism and from there we will see and decide.

Also, we would like to get possibly Mongolia becuse projections for that country within the next decade is that the disposable income  per person is going to be rapidly high and they will be looking for places to visit. They have already travelling into Vietnam and Malaysia too, we believe they could be interested to come here for medical procedures as well.

10. What is your percentage of Malaysian women or men that comes for the treatment at Mediviron UOA Clinic?

There is no statistics in Malaysia on how many had come to various clinic or how many procedures is done because our government does not compile it.. There is no centre which compiles the data, we will only know how many patients to their procedure in our clinic but for other clinics, we will not be able to access to their database and there is no database available in the country but what we do know is that the numbers are increasing because the numbers of patients we are getting is increasing. Nowadays, we have more men coming in for procedures too. We have approximately 70% of our patients are ladies , 30% are men and their age ranges from 18 to 70s.

After the Q&A session, everyone including the members of media was ushered to have their lunch. For further updates of Mediviron UOA Clinic, please do give them a like below in their Facebook.

It was a rush hour where most people are getting off from work or school and the events starts at 7pm but I manage to get there on time and it was great to finally catch up with my blogger buddies there. We were served with dinner before the event started, most of the time I stuffed myself with their desserts.

Berry, the Beauty Trainer of Revlon Malaysia shares with us how identify the type of lips that we have and ways on improving it.

  • Full Lips – upper and lower lips are fairly thick

Tips: Reduce the size of the lips by using dark color within the line of your lips to create an illusion of smaller lips

  • Large Top Lips – upper lips are thicker than lower lips

Tips: Use lip liner on the bottom lips to balance with upper lips

  • Thin Lips – thin-sized lips on upper and lower lips

Tips: Make lips appear larger by applying lip liner over the natural line of your lips to accentuate the size of your lips.

  • Droopy Lips – lips are slightly curved down creating unhappy smile naturally

Tips: Use lip liner to create  wing up (just like eye liner) to minimize the curved down effect.

  • Wrinkled Lips – lips with wrinkles and fine lines

Tips: Use darker colors and avoid using frosty/shimmer finish lip product as it will further accentuate the lines.

  • Thin Upper Lips – upper lips is thinner than lower lips

Tips: Apply lip liner over the natural lip line to emphasize on the top lips.

  • Perfect Lips – size and thickness of the lips that are well balanced

Tip: Any color will match the lips

Mivva x Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick & Lip Gloss - 3D Lips Demo

Berry also shared with us the techniques in creating 3D lips and model of the day has to be JQ Lee of Nia Angel by JQ Lee.

  1. Begin with applying lip stick with/without brush starting at the outer corner of the lips towards inside on both, upper and lower lips.
  2. To get a smoother application, we can always gently press close to the lip area then apply lip product. This way also gives a better control for the application.
  3. Using  light eye shadow, dab it in the middle of the lips to create that 3 dimensional effect.
  4. Layer over with lip gloss to give that perfect shine and pout.
