Ever wonder what people take notice of us at first glance? Is it our hair? What about the smile? Maybe are those twinkling eyes!
Whichever it is, one thing that people will always notice is our skin. The skin is our largest organ & I feel it is also an indicator of our mental health & personal hygiene – which means having healthy looking skin gives impression that one is a happy, self-loving person!
True that some problematic skin conditions could be attributed by genes, but this should not stop us from seeking professional help to turn the situation around.
ASIAN SKIN SOLUTION
As mentioned previously, I got to know Asian Skin Solution through Taiwan most well-received beauty program 女人我最大 on television, where I have been interested to try out their service eversince.
Being one of the top-notch skincare solution in Singapore, Asian Skin Solution allows us to care for our skin with state-of-the-art technologies in cosmetic field. Our skin deserves the best & staying young is a never ending hobby for all beautiful ones!
What makes Asian Skin Solution different from others is they take pride for being the solution for Asian skin problems & are committed to solve them in the most effective way. With the professionally-trained beauticians, I can understand why their customers base is growing strongly.
There are 2Asian Skin Solution outlets in Singapore and the one I visited is at Paya Lebar Square. Both locations are convenient for frequent visits since Asian Skin Solution is our partner for maintaining skin health and not a one time solution.
I want to be the kind of beauty that shines with the brightest skin, even on the darkest night.
Although we know beauty lies skin deep, but we do want to look & feel good at all times because humans are visual animals and naturally attracted to pleasantness. Giving our skin priority & extra care often reward us with happiness & the reflection of gorgeous skin in everyone’s eyes.
I enjoyed having my facials in beauty salons because my skin always feel good & glowing after it. I also strongly believe that oil, dirt & makeup products will remain in some of my pores even when I do double cleansing on my face twice daily.
As an Asian, we have a different set of skin problems from other ethnicity groups. Our skin tends to lose moisture easily because of its thinness & the dehydrated skin will be prone to more serious issues such as sensitive skin, allergies, & environmental aggressors. Asian skin also has issue with hyperpigmentation, which is why we see splotchy brown spots that are especially obvious as we aged.
Asian skin also has black & whiteheads on the t-zone & cheek area because the oil glands are super active in secreting sebum. Excess sebum left on these areas will lead to inflammatory acnes, rough skin & enlarged pores. The wearing of safety masks because of Covid 19 makes maskne trending & on a roll. All of these problems are pretty scary & how many do you have?
ASIAN SKIN SOLUTION
I got to know about Asian Skin Solution when I watched Taiwan most well-received beauty program 女人我最大 on television, which happened to feature their award winning skincare products for that episode. The segment got me intrigued & lead me to search for user reviews on Asian Skin Solution as I’m interested to try out their facial service.
Being one of the top-notch skincare solution in Singapore, Asian Skin Solution allows me to care for myself with their state-of-the-art technologies in cosmetic field. I feel that my skin deserves the best & staying young is a lifelong mission for me (and almost everyone)!
What makes Asian Skin Solution different from others is also that they take pride in being the solutions for Asian skin problems & are committed to help us in eliminating skin concerns in the most effective way & relaxing environment. With their professionally-trained beauticians, I am on my way to a more confident self, even when I’m in bare skin!
There are 2Asian Skin Solution outlets in Singapore and the one I visited is at Paya Lebar Square. All of their locations are convenient to access, which is important since most of us need to visit the salon several times in order to complete the treatments.
The outlet at Paya Lebar Square is located at Basement 1, donning a really chic and luxurious shop front. Spot the beautiful floral wall and I’m sure no one will miss it if they ever walked past the shop!
As usual, all new customers to the beauty salon will have to complete a two-page questionnaire for the beauticians to understand our needs and expectations correctly.
Further to the two-page questionnaire, they will also be doing a skin analysis with a scanner apparatus on our face. If you have struggled long enough with skin problems, you will know that there is no one-method-fits-all solution. Asian Skin Solution know the importance of treating a problem at its root hence going through such detailed skin analysis is really essential!
After scanning, I’m rather surprised to see the results of my in-depth analysis. The results showed I have clean pores and sufficient moisture on my skin but because I have super thin keratin, fine lines have started appearing. Super thin keratin also means thin skin hence my skin is subjected to sensitivity & lost of moisture really easily.
Time to get changed into their signature grey tube wrap and welcome to the cosy treatment room of mine. I really like the major color of sleek piano-white throughout the salon, so classy! Asian Skin Solution even put duvet on the treatment bed and it is so comfortable that I felt like I was floating on a cloud throughout the treatment!
With my areas of concern diagnosed, my beautician introduced their LLLT (Low Level Laser Treatment) with Omega Light to me. This treatment is targeted to strengthen the skin, brighten my complexion & lighten pigmentations from brownish acne scars – with the use of different colored lights alongside facial procedures. This treatment sounds really scientific and I’m excited about it! 🌈
LLLT is a painless process to rejuvenate the skin by emitting different wavelengths of light energy deep into the skin layer, promoting cell growth & improving skin conditions for cosmetic effects. This treatment is great because it can be effective yet gentle enough even on the most sensitive skin. My skin is feeling calmed & relaxed throughout the treatment, not even a bit of irritation!
There are 6 types of colored light energy with LLLT, and each of them carries a different function to target on the areas of concern. My beautician chosen red & blue light energy for me because I need better blood circulation, relieving of my fine lines while repairing my acne scars.
LLLT is a 7-steps procedure and will start is with a pre-cleansing & then double cleansing – even on the neck and shoulder area! The thorough cleanse is to ensure no dirt and oil is left on the skin surface so that extraction of impurities can be done easily after softening the face with gentle steam.
Lacking vibrancy in my appearance? Celevenus is here to help me!
I get to know Celevenus through Instagram and apparently, Celevenus is very popular with many beauty and lifestyle bloggers. I have read pretty good reviews on their hospitality and services and is delighted to start my beauty journey with them.
CELEVENUS IS LOCATED AT NGEE ANN CITY TOWER B
Despite having a beauty regimen, there is something that skincare and diet cannot help; the lost of volume on facial muscles due to aging or lost of weight. This is where a professional aesthetic doctor is needed to improve my appearance.
ONE OF THE TREATMENT ROOM
Dr Dylan Chau, the doctor at Celevenus diagnosed my face with care and understanding my area of concerns. He then suggested I can give Sculptra a try since I’m looking for a naturally enhanced look that is less frail looking and that my dark eye circles can be lighten. Sculptra is a kind of collagen stimulating medicine that triggers the body to produce its own collagen naturally, otherwise known as ‘The Liquid Facelift’.
Since Sculptra works by replacing lost collagen using the body’s very own collagen stimulation process, the result is not instantaneously like what a filler can do but is known to be longer lasting.
THE FRIENDLY THERAPIST DOING CLEANSING ON ME FOR PRE SCULPTRA
You can wear your make up and pop by for your treatment to suit your schedule because the therapist will do a good cleansing and removal of make up for you. Great service!
APPLYING THE NUMBING CREAM
I was brought to a comfortable room where the therapist cleansed my skin & applied a good amount of numbing cream. A good 30 mins of numbing is anticipated since Sculptra involves multiple injections at area of concerns.
GETTING READY FOR SCULPTRA (pictures taken in Apr 18, my first Sculptra treatment)
Dr Dylan used a white wax pencil and started marking on the areas he thinks should be filled for attaining a fuller, youthful appearance. After the markings, he checked to ensure I’m happy with what he is doing before proceeding with the injections.
HOW SCULPTRA WORKS?
As I aged, there is volume loss in the internal facial tissues such as the loss of bone density in skull, loss of collagen and muscle tissues, as well as fat resorption.
As a result, my skin sags & become droopy. Folds at the cheeks, tear trough, laugh lines and corners of the mouth became more prominent. There is also slight development of fine wrinkles for me.
Sculptra helps to replace & reinforce the skin’s collagen structure within the deep dermis. This reinforced collagen structure provides a foundation that gradually restores the fullness of my facial contour which in term smooths out shallow to deep facial wrinkles and folds that has been depleted over time.
WHY CHOOSE DR DYLAN CHAU?
Because he is nice and charismatic. Of course not just these but also because you will be in good hands under him.
Dr Dylan Chau is the trainer of Sculptra
Dr Chau has over 10 years of hands-on experience in Sculptra, he is one of the pioneers in this procedure ever since its launch in Singapore.
Dr Chau is also the Key Opinion Leader (KOL) for Sculptra.
Sculptra is injected into the skin. The number of injections per treatment session will vary depending on the degree of correction and Dr Dylan’s decision of what is right for us. For mine, it was a 3 sessions course.
A topical anesthetic will be applied and you may experience injection site discomfort in the treatment process. However, this varies from person to person and you should not receive treatment if you have an active infection or skin inflammation near the planned injection site.
After each treatment session, I experienced slight swelling, which can give me a preview of how I may look once my shallowness is filled. The swelling on average subsides within a few days and the wrinkles will temporarily reappear as the gradual process of collagen replacement continues.
RIGHT AFTER SCULPTRA (pictures taken in Jun 18, 2nd session of Sculptra)
Following an average of three treatment sessions over a few months as what Dr Dylan recommended for me can produce a more natural, younger looking appearance that is potentially long lasting. During the course of treatment, Dr Dylan may adjust your treatment plan to help you reveal a natural-looking appearance that’s uniquely yours too.
TIPS & THINGS TO TAKE NOTE
Some patients may experience injection site pain, redness, bruising, bleeding, itching, or swelling. Other side effects may include the delayed development of non-visible, small bumps under the skin sometimes noticeable when pressing on the treated area.
It is better that you can take SinEcch a week before your procedure to reduce the side effects . This is not necessary but can be an aid for someone who is prone to bruising.
Also, try to stop your skin supplements including fish oil as they have blood thinning effect. When you blood is thinner, you will bleed a little more during the treatment.
AFTERCARE (MASSAGING BY THE THERAPIST)
After each treatment session with Sculptra, give yourself a good but gentle facial massage. Thiseasy step will let you achieve better result with Sculptra if you are disciplined with it. Massage the treated area for 5 minutes 5 times a day for 5 days after treatment is highly recommended by Dr Dylan.
MY RESULT AFTER 3 SESSIONS OF SCULPTRA IN 5 MONTHS (Apr to Sept 18)
The result? A refined, more youthful looking appearance over time that are potentially long lasting. Look at my eyes area, temple and laugh lines! These are something that cannot be digitally enhanced but only with the help of Sculptra.
ON MY FINAL THOUGHTS
With my 3 sessions of Sculptra at Celevenus, I must say it does work!
The work of Sculptra is so natural but noticeable, I get compliments for looking better in appearance rather than I look unnaturally beautiful (this could happen with traditional fillers). The final result from my 3rd session of Sculptra done in Sept 18 needs another 3 months to take effect but I’m already very happy with the result I have gotten till date.
The downpoint of Sculptra? It is a little priceier than normal fillers and it took longer to cultivate the result. But with a final beauty look that is more natural and long lasting, Sculptra definitely have my vote. Considering myself as a foodie and beauty blogger who is constantly on the go without proper rest (I sleep like 3 hours daily) and diet (I eat all sorts of food 24/7), the beauty and plumping effect of Sculptra seemed to be good already.
Maintenance is the key of success for anything that works, so if you have gotten the result you wanted, try to adopt a healthier lifestyle to sustain your new beauty look.
