“B” Helps You Sweat No More, Improve Wrinkles & Slimmer Jawline

So what’s the “B” that I was saying? It’s botox, a word that gives a lot of meaning and very well known to the society. The perception of botox changed drastically negative after many botched jobs are shown in pictures every where and not everyone are able to accept the fact that botox can also help other than cosmetic reasons at the right place, doctor, dosage and concentrate. Last week I was at Mediviron UOA Clinic to find out more at their B Party.

B Helps You Sweat No More, Improve Wrinkles & Slimmer Jawline - Botox Botulinum Toxin Type A Presentation

Botox is a natural purified protein that relaxes muscles hence smoothens ones’ appearance especially on the wrinkles and this can last up to 4 months. Depending on individuals, the results can be seen as fast as after a few minutes or 2-3 days. In general, botox are commonly known to use on wrinkles but do we all know that it can be use for jawline reduction, excessive sweating (underarms, palm, feet) and teeth grinding? I bet you don’t but it’s alright, we are here to learn!

B Helps You Sweat No More, Improve Wrinkles & Slimmer Jawline - Botox Botulinum Toxin Type A Hanah's Experience

Ms Hanah (I hope that I get her name spelt right) shared her experience of getting botox a week before. She found her sister’s skin has been improving so well and recommended her to the clinic. She was sceptical at first to get botox but wanted to improve the wrinkles on her under eyes then decided to go for it. “It hurts a little, just like the bite from an ant and after few minutes, it’s all done! You can easily get it done over your lunch break without downtime.” I can hardly tell that she has taken botox, its unnoticeable!

I have searched high and low for this video and this was shared among us during the party. On the earlier part of the video is about Juverderm which is a type of filler that helps to fill and plumps up the skin. It can be use for concerns like wrinkles, depressed scars and nose augmentation. As to the botox topic, it starts at the time frame of 5:00 and you could skip to watch from there if fillers isn’t your interest. By watching this video, you will be able to understand further.

B Helps You Sweat No More, Improve Wrinkles & Slimmer Jawline - Botox Botulinum Toxin Type A Dr Lashela

Dr Lashela, no strange doctor if you have read my previous post of Mediviron UOA Clinic related topics. She was there to explain about how botox are used and they could come in different concentrations to be use depending on individual’s severity and doctor’s recommendation.

B Helps You Sweat No More, Improve Wrinkles & Slimmer Jawline - Botox Botulinum Toxin Type A Before Demo

A demonstration was also shown and the lucky candidate was Mr Ken. Numbing cream was applied before the treatment and it has to be on for half and hour just like how I did for my Fractional CO2 Laser. Once the half hour passed, the numbing cream will be removed to ensure the area is clean.

B Helps You Sweat No More, Improve Wrinkles & Slimmer Jawline - Botox Botulinum Toxin Type A Demo

Dr Lashela suggested to use botox on his frown lines as the lines are becoming quite prominent, therefore she injected on that area without numbing cream. Before she injects the botox, she marked on the areas which needs to be injected. Using the dots as a guide, she then injects the botox. Surprisingly, the needle for the syringe is not as long as I expected. It’s approximately 1cm or lesser. Once injected, doctor massage the area lightly for even distribution of the botox.  She also injected on the outer corner of his eyes for his wrinkles. Mr Ken did mention that its not as pain as we could imagine, the pain is bearable.

B Helps You Sweat No More, Improve Wrinkles & Slimmer Jawline - Botox Botulinum Toxin Type A Threadlift

Aside from explaining about botox, participants are shared about other treatments that Mediviron UOA Clinic provides such as Thread Lift. It is another treatment for face lifting and here you can see Fara (Director of Sales & Marketing) shows the syringes for the treatment.

B Helps You Sweat No More, Improve Wrinkles & Slimmer Jawline - Botox Botulinum Toxin Type A Raymond - Product Specialist

Also, we have Raymond (Product Specialist) to explain about how Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) or more commonly known as Vampire Facial. If you haven’t know about this treatment, what it does is to improve fine lines, wrinkles, sun damaged skin or scarring with much natural approach. It uses the platelet from your blood to be injected onto your skin which promotes natural and more effective healing and rejuvenation. Of course, the platelet obtained is through a separation process of your blood using a machine.

The party ends with a makeup session by Marcus to even out her complexion for brighter and more luminous look.

Get That Ageless Body & Freeze Those Fats Away!

Don’t we love to have that ageless body where no matter what we do or eat, our body will not store those nasty fats? Just last weekend, I have joined Mediviron UOA Aesthetics Clinic on their Ageless Body event. It was open to public and I have also shared with everyone about it in my Facebook. Please do follow me in my Facebook for tons more beauty and events update!

Get That Ageless Body & Freeze Those Fats Away!  Dr Lasheela

Dr Lashela, who has more than 7 years of experience in medicine practice and has great experience in aesthetics medicine as well as treating dermatological diseases. In Ageless Body, we were introduced to a machine that helps to reduce stubborn fat on targeted areas with less fuss.

Get That Ageless Body & Freeze Those Fats Away! Cool Sculpting Info

The machine that Dr Lashela speak of is Cool Sculpting, a non-invasive fat busting treatment and results can be seen as early as 3 weeks of 20 – 25% fat reduction. No anaesthesia or incisions used, no downtime and great alternative for liposuction. Using Crylipolysis, which is a cooling technology to eliminate fat without damaging other parts of the body internally.

Get That Ageless Body & Freeze Those Fats Away! Ageless Body

Cool Sculpting can be used on areas such as flanks, stomach, upper back, lower back and inner thighs, these are the problematic areas where stubborn fat stays. Suitable candidates for such treatment will be those who has stubborn fat, wants to achieve well-toned body and to lose love handles, flabby tummy, wobbly thighs and arms. If  you are the one with high muscle mass, you’re not suitable for this.

Get That Ageless Body & Freeze Those Fats Away!  Cool Fit Hand Piece

Here is how the applicator looks and this machine is developed by Harvard University scientist, Dieter Manstein, MD, PhD and R. Rox Anderson, MD. This technology was born after the observation of some children who gets their dimples from eating popsicles and this is licensed by Massachuettes General Hospital, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School.

Get That Ageless Body & Freeze Those Fats Away!  Treatment Room

We were also brought to tour around the clinic for their different aesthetics treatment rooms and this will be the room for doing Cool Sculpting treatment.

Get That Ageless Body & Freeze Those Fats Away!  Demo

Dr Lashela performed a 10-minute demonstration to share with us how it looks to undergo this treatment.

  1. Use the Cool Sculpting template to mark on the areas at the peak of the bulges.
  2. Apply gel pad over the marked area and this is to protect the skin as well as to retain moisture.
  3. Covering lining for the applicator.
  4. With one hand supporting the arm and another hand holds the applicator. Place the applicator to the treatment area, leave on for an hour for each targeted area. Patients will be supported comfortably with pillows and towels.
  5. Once it’s timed, remove the applicator and massage the treatment area for 2 mins. Clean and pat dry.

What happened while having the Cool Sculpting applicator on is, it uses a controlled cooling to crystallize fat cells on the area, fat cells will gradually die then will be eliminated through your lymphatic system.

Get That Ageless Body & Freeze Those Fats Away!  Demo 2

Patients will usually feel numb, deep pulling/pinching/stinging during the treatment. After the treatment, there will be some redness and mild swelling. Since the treatment need an hour of each area, patients can always listen to music, watch movies, read, work on laptops or even sleep.

Get That Ageless Body & Freeze Those Fats Away!  Participants

Mediviron UOA couldn’t leave us with empty hand at the end of the session and each of us get a variety of prizes from voucher, skin cares and more! We are also allowed to do skin analysis and BMI test after the session.

Mediviron UOA Aesthetics - Visia Complexion Analysis Facial Assessment Report

This was my skin analysis result using Visia Complexion Analysis  which surprised me because my skin condition hasn’t been in positive for most of my skin analysis and this has brighten up my day. The percentage showing is what I have and I will need to improve the missing percentage. What I have to improve the most from the missing percentage is spots (31%), texture (25%) and wrinkles (22%). It seems that I have protected my skin very well on UV spots as what I have is 99%, thank you to my daily SPF50 sun block!

For my BMI test, I’m healthy and the numbers are showing well although the overall results states that I’m underweight.

  • Weight: 48.8kg
  • Height: 165cm
  • Overall fat: 23.3%
  • Metabolic Age: 19 years old
  • BMI: 17.9
  • Calories Intake per day: 1124 kcal
  • Viceral Fat: 1

Through Ageless Body, I learned another new machine that helps to bust fat effortlessly and I really enjoy finding out more about how it works as well as the technology behind it. It was a great session!

Mediviron UOA Aesthetics Clinic will be having events occasionally and to keep yourself updated with their latest don’t forget to like their Facebook below!

Liposonix, One Treatment, One Hour & One Size Smaller Without Surgery

Beverly Wilshire Medical Centre shares with us their latest  beauty treatment available just last weekend. They are a beauty medical center specialized in cosmetic surgery, hair transplant, aesthetic medicine (non-surgical and laser treatments) and healthy aging (wellness and cell therapy).

Beverly Wilshire Liposonix, One Treatment, One Hour & One Size Smaller Without Surgery - Dr Karen

Dr Karen Po,  who is the Consultant Aesthetic Physician of Beverly Wilshire Medical Centre who is very passionate on aesthetic medicine especially after her eldest daughter was born with cafe-au-lait birthmark on her face. She also shared with us treatments such as Thermage Total Tip 3.0, Fraxel DUAL 1550/1927 and Liposonix.

  • Thermage Total Tip 3.0

Thermage treatment has been around for quite a while and this treatment has been improved to be highly effective for face, neck and body for smoother, tighter and redefined skin also softening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It uses radiofrequency technology that delivers safe heat deep into our skin to stimulate collagen.

  • Fraxel DUAL 1550/1927

Its a laser treatment to resurface skin targeted on skin surface and deeper layers. It is recommended for age spots, sun spots, freckles, acne cars, pigmentation and wrinkles. The numbers are two unique codes, 1550 helps to penetrate deep into the skin and 1927 targets to tone and other signs of aging.

  • Liposonix

A non-surgical fat reduction procedure targeting around your waistline with little to no downtime or aftercare. It uses high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) energy to bust stubborn fats that stays on even after the effort of dieting and exercising. Let’s get deeper into this!

Beverly Wilshire Liposonix, One Treatment, One Hour & One Size Smaller Without Surgery -  Crystal

Liposonix system helps to breakdown fat cells under our skin, as deep as 1.3cm. Above is the crystal that shows the depth of the system when the treatment is done. Once the fat breaks up, it will be flushed out through our body lymphatic system. However, do not mistaken that Liposonix can be replace as a liposuction or surgical treatment but it is a quick, easy and safe treatment to lose that last inch to achieve the body shape that you always long for.

Beverly Wilshire Liposonix, One Treatment, One Hour & One Size Smaller Without Surgery - Demo

The ideal candidate for Liposonix must be able to ‘pinch-an-inch’ on targeted area, have a body mass index (BMI) equal or less than 30, healthy and have realistic expectation on the results. As seen above, Dr Karen demonstrates to us ‘pinch-an-inch’ has to be done with patient standing straight, then she does marking  on the targeted area as a guide during the treatment. Water is sprayed on the skin to be the conductor of the treatment. Once the device is removed, patients will feel mild swelling, redness and discomfort.

Beverly Wilshire Liposonix, One Treatment, One Hour & One Size Smaller Without Surgery - Machine

Here is how the Liposonix machine looks like and uses the handpiece device to place and treat targeted areas. Results can be vary depending on individuals, it can be seen within 8 to 12 weeks and on average, an hour duration of treatment shows the result of waist reduction of 1 inch, about one size smaller.

Beverly Wilshire Liposonix, One Treatment, One Hour & One Size Smaller Without Surgery -Trial

Everybody gets to feel the treatment and I never miss that chance. Dr Karen mentioned I didn’t qualify for the ‘pinch-an-inch’ but it still can be done on my back upper hip. Dr Karen and the nurses had to pinch and push my fats together before placing the handpiece. I could instantly feel a significant prickling effect and the pain is bearable. However, the level of pain is depends on individual’s endurance. For me, the pain didn’t last once I have exited from the treatment room.

If you’re interested to find out more these treatments, you could contact them by telephone or email. Currently, they have two centres and you could find their contacts according to your preferred centre through their website, Beverly Wilshire Medical Centre.
