When i tweeted that i had Botox, fillers and skin rejuvenation lasers done earlier, most of the responses were “wah you don’t need it you are still young!”
I’m not very young (29) but also not so old until all wrinkly la. But why wait until you have wrinkles to correct when you can prevent it?
Beverly Wilshire Medical Center invited me over for a consultation and see how they can enhance my face hehehe.
Visited the one at Tropicana City Mall.
I went with an open mind because i didn’t have any particular things i wanted to do in mind.
But i did have a few concerns:
1. Sudden spots
Like i said i have mysterious spots appearing overnight. Ծ_Ծ. Not even kidding. And i’m quite sure it’s not sun exposure because i stay indoor as much as i can and slab on SPF like whipped cream on your Starbucks.
2. Brow tattoo
I actually had an amateur brow tattoo done at a salon years ago, and regretted so much T__T because now one side faded and the other side is to high. Always wanted to have it removed. Lesson: NEVER get ANY tattoo.
3. Dark eye circles
This one i think will follow me for life ⇎_⇎
4. Generally just want to look more youthful!
My doctor is Dr Wong.
He studied my face and advised a few things:
1. Botox on forehead and between brows. When i frown or look up i have slight wrinkles, but he is doing it more for preventative purpose.
2. He commented that my cheeks are a little sunken (i actually had fillers done before but they were gone), so fillers to plump them up.
3. Fotona Skin Rejuvenation Laser to remove some spots, and the brow tattoo i didn’t like.
The before picture.
Fotona Skin Rejuvenation Laser
First of all numb cream is applied on my face, and let it take effect so i rested about 45 minutes.
Wrapped to get it absorbed faster.
Then Dr Wong started with Fotona. The whole face is treated, you feel light pricking sensations, doesn’t hurt but on the brow it was stronger because it’s tattoo removal.
And then proceed with Botox
Injection spots will be marked at multiple points
And quick injection.
Next is filler!
(At this time my camera ran out of battery so i didn’t have any process pictures taken).
The fillers are done on both my cheeks to make them look fuller. I actually would like my chin to be shaper too but Dr Wong said i already have a longer lower face, so he injected a little into the front part of the chin (to make it fuller instead of longer).
This is immediately after treatment.
There was some slight bruise especially on the chin, and redness on the brow part (look how it was totally out of the brow shape lol).
I had an appointment 2 hours later, thought i wanted to cancel it rest at home for the day.
But when i got home, which was 20 minutes later, the bruising were already mostly gone!!
So i applied light make up and look totally fine again. Very very impressed at the almost zero down time.
Actually there isn’t a significant difference since it’s very light dose of filler, so nobody can tell anything, BUT people just have the feeling that you somehow look a few years younger lol.
I could feel the cheeks more plumped up, and a his filler stone also killed a few other birds:
1. Look less tired and old because now your face is “fuller”
2. Immediately know where to apply blusher lolol
3. The fillers are made of hyaluronic acid so it’s direct hydration under my cheeks! Normally that was my problematic area when it comes to dry skin.
That’s all! I will be going back for a follow-up, will update again!
I thought i couldn’t see any major difference (maybe i’m too used to seing my own face every day), apparently everybody begged to differ!!
I uploaded this picture on Instagram (which is taken a day after the procedures were done):
I thought i looked pretty much like usual, but most of the comments:
Some of the comments said that i look younger *secretly happy*, (only one said i looked more mature with this style) even though i intentionally dressed more demure/adult for the sponsored coordinate of the day. Very happy!!!
