Adipocyte (Fat) derived Stem Cells, ADSC

What is ADSC?Short for Adipocyte Derived Stem Cells , simply put stem cells from body fat, it is now possible to get stem cells just by extracting your body fat through a simple procedure called Lipo aspiration or even after liposuction.  The technique has been available for several years now but due to it's technical difficulties in processing the fat to extract the stem cells, it's development in clinical practice was a little slow. In fact our centre had at one point the manual mini lab to conduct this processing called the multi station but then the process was so tedious and lengthy ( min 8hrs to complete), plus there was not much interest in stem cell then, we gave it up.  I then went to Korea to learn about the processing using a fully automated machine called the Unistation which was able to process and get all the stem cells ready in 2hours.

Whiten your teeth

I've always had a yellowish stained looking teeth. This had caused me a lot of distress and feeling self conscious. So I finally decided to go for teeth whitening procedure with my dentis at Global Drs Dental Specialists. The process was uncomfortable where I had to sit still for a full 2 hrs while my lips were pulle apart with a plastic retractor so all my teeth would show u dear the laser light that was shown at it. Before the light was shown, a liquid gel was applied not the teeth. This was a bleaching agent. Afterwards, the the whole mouth felt sensitive and for a few days it was uncomfortable to drink cold drinks.This was my experience 4 years ago. Now there's a new method using low level light therapy ( not laser) and non bleaching lightening agent instead for teeth whitening. Using the Light Mask that transmit light in the infra red and blue wavelength, and after applying the lightening gel, the teeth enamel can be lightened 2-4 shades lighter in just 1 short 20 min sess…

Gender and Sexual Aesthetics 2013

Attended the first Gender Aestetics Congress and Sexual AesthetIcs Meeting that went on at the Marina Bay Sands,Singapore this week. The topics discussed were sometimes within the realm of gender aesthetics but what was more exciting was the oppurtinity to listen to talks given by some big names in the Medical Arsthetics fraternity. I was able to meet big names  like Fournier and Ridaelli and chat with them throughout lunch and tea. Being in Singapore, most o the boothes were manned by reps from Singapore and Malaysia so mot of them I knew and vice versa. Good catching up with other Drs while chatting n joking with the Reps in a non serious state as well as looking at what's new in the local market.
Books, books, books! How I am with books is like a love affair....as always I spent pretty much of my time at the Research Books boothe. They have solo many books related to tis field a

Acoustic Shock Wave Therapy - the new wave

Recently a new device joined our family. It is called the X-Wave.

What is X-Wave ?
It is a device that transmits acoustic pulses. Acoustic pulses are extremely strong non-focused sound pulses that induce vibration within the body. The energy has been specially developed to avoid any skin damage while penetrating into the treatment area.





What is X-Wave Therapy?
Using the powerful energy of acoustic waves, it achieves the best results in non-invasive treatments of cellulite, scars and stretch marks.
What are the effects of X-Wave? 1. Increased blood flow supply - In cellulite, the capillary system is constrained by hypertrophic fat structures. X-Wave allows for growth of new capillaries which increases microcirculation, oxygen supply and metabolic rate in affected areas. 2. Waste Elimination - In cellulite, there is waste accumulation from waste product build-up that provokes alteration in connective tissue. By mechanical stimulation of lymphatic vascular system leading to reduction of…

SMARTLIPO - the smart way to loose fat

Recently we had an old patient of mine, SL, a beautiful young model who has landed an acting job which required her to expose her arms and legs. So she wanted them sculpted to slimmer limbs but did not want to undergo any surgery. She wanted something effective and yet not invasive, with little downtime as she still had modeling shoots to go to, and does not require too many visits.
I proposed to her Laserlipolisis using my favorite technology of all time - the Smartlipo Laserlipolisis.
The Smartlipo laser is from Deka, a prominent laser company based in Florence, Italy. It uses the 1064nm wavelength which is sensitive to water and fat. By using this laser to melt the unwanted fat, turning it into oily discharge instead, making it easy to extract if desired through small incisions on the skin.
This is the journey :
The Patient SL is a young lady who is of normal weight with some areas of stubborn fat. She works as a model and actress and exposes these areas during work so the procedur…

Laser Hair Removal - the faster way to hair free days

Our Medical Grade Laser Hair Removal with theCandela GentleYag Laser system can safely and effectively treat the hair without targeting the skin. It is the GOLD Standard for permanent or long term hair removal on skin of color.

Why ?
Because the GentleYAG laser technology is known for its ability to provide 80-90% permanent hair reduction . . . regardless of skin type. The system uses a revolutionary long-pulse high energy laser which emits a gentle beam of light that harmlessly passes through the skin where the hair is absorbed by the target. While the laser energy is transformed into heat, the surrounding skin is left unaffected.
Also, a Dynamic Cooling Device™  further protects the skin during treatment by spraying cryogen onto the skin to cool the upper layers and provide clients with increased comfort. 

Thanks to this advanced technology, we can now offer laser hair removal to everyone - whether you are fair skinned, dark skinned, or even tanned! 
You can now eliminate traditional hai…

Laser Galore - 5 technologies in one place

I realised recently that our centre carries the top of range lasers and many clients do not know this. They sometimes compare prices and when they find ours to be somewhat more pricey then others , think that we are more expensive. This is not true. Our lasers are imported and are the gold standards for it's treatment range. Unfortunately though lasers have different wavelenghts to cater for different needs and any 1 laser system can only have 1 wavelenght. This makes it expensive for the client if they have multiple conditions that needs to be treated on their facial skin. For eg : acne scars with melasma and some wrinkles with facial hair.

We thus decided to introduce these lasers to our members and came up with limited time "Unlimited" laser treatments with any lasers for any condition scheme.

The following are the laser types that we have :
1. Duolite by DEKA : a Q-Switch Nd-Yag laser for skin lightening, hyperpigmentations, pore reduction, skin rejuvenation
2. Gentl…

Silhoutte Soft Lift techniques - latest from Barcelona

In Barcelona again for another round of training and updates on the use of Silhoutte Soft sutures. It was again an interesting 2 day session with over 100 Drs from all over the world. New techniques included for brow lifting, mid face lifting and especially for lower face to define the jawline. New techniques for neck lifting, nasal flare reduction, breast lifting, buttocks lifting and reduction of the upper arm flabbiness.
The new 16 cone sutures with 8 cones on each side instead of 4 was also introduced. This allows for less threads or sutures to be used for the same effect due to a stronger and better 'hold' of the skin , thus a better "lifting" effect.
I tried it out upon my return and lo and behold , the hold is better and a more profound lifting is seen. What's best is I am able to achieve the same results with less no of sutures allowing for better affordability to patients.



Bye-Bye to Thunder Thighs with CoolSmooth

The latest Coolsculpting applicator from Zeltiq is now available at En-hanze Medispa. Called the "CoolSmooth Applicator" it is specifically created and designed to treat the ever difficult and stubborn fat in the outer thighs, better known as the saddle bags. We have been waiting for Zeltiq to produce this applicator as many of our female patients want to treat and get rid of their saddle bags without undergoing surgery. The CoolSmooth allows for totally non invasive treatment of saddlebags.

What does the treatment entail?

Coolsculpting uses cryolipolisis technology where the treated fat is cooled down to almost freezing point with a special applicator applied to the area. This applicators are specially made to be applied onto the skin overlying the treated fat and has special settings to ensure the skin does not burn or get injured. Up to date Zeltiq has produced different applicators to cater for the different parts of the body :
1. CoolCore for the tummy areas,
2. CoolCur…

Minimally Invasive Nonsurgical Thread Lift ( MINT) - to V shape and lift the face

A type of thread lift that combines the principles of Fine PDO thread with thicker barbed threads and  anchoring threads.  The new MINT lift threads enables us to do this especially for those who wants to Vshape their face and/or give it better definition, as well as to lift the mid and lower facial skin with its "cox" and anchoring it the the scalp skin. The procedure is minimally invasive in that there is no cutting of skin but instead uses specially made needles and instruments to give an effect close to a mini facelift!
Who are the ideal candidates ?
1. Young people who want to shape their lower face to a sharper and narrower appearance
2. Those who want to accentuate their chin, jawline and Vshape the lower face
3. Older people desiring a lift and reduction in their jowls
4.those suffering from mild to moderate aging wanting to refresh their appearance
5. Advanced sagging of skin but not desiring surgical intervention



The procedure is done under local anesthesia in a o…

Wrinkle Eraser without needles

If you are afrid of needles and injections, try this Wrinkle MD - a product using electroporotion  to deliver the active ingredients into the dermal layer of skin. Especially good for the under eye areas, and forehead lines as well as droopy eyebrows where it is difficult to inject as well as bruise easily.
The product comes with a "pod" which is attached to the pad that is placed onto the skin in the area where the treatment is desired. For eg the under eye area, the upper brow area and the forehead lines area.

I tried I to myself and lo and behold, my undereye lines were less after a20min session! It was comfortable and easy to use. I wore it while doing my paperwork. 
For those who want to maintain their BotoX injection to last longer, this is also a good option. Only need to be applied weekly for best results with a maintenance of 2to4 weekly.

OxyCeutical facial - the calming, soothing facial using pure Oxygen

Tried out the new Oxyceuticals facial today. A full 1.5 hour session of soothing facial with hand massage which we recommend to our clients if they desire a relaxing but effective facial. Available at our MediSpa this facial is also recommended for those who need a gentle yet effective healing treatment after laser resurfacing, laser rejuvenation, post chemical peels, post needling , post threads insertion or just to calm the skin if has been irritated after certain treatments or just simple sun exposure.
1st a special foam cleanser is applied to deeply cleanse the skin. This comes with a nice 5min facial massage. Usually by this time I start to relax and feel sleepy.
Next pure oxygen is infused into the skin using a special spray handpiece. The oxygen is 100% pure from our Oxygen tank.
After this more serums and massaging follow. (By this time I am half a sleep , so can't really remember what is applied)
My favourite is the last part where a special oxygen mask is applied onto t…

Reduce sweat and body odor with Alma Sweat X

Ready for a fresh start?
Get a fresh start with Sweat X - A new groundbreaking treatment for excessive sweating and body odor. Sometimes there's nothing like working up a good sweat. But when it gets in the way of your daily activities, it can be a real problem.


Millions of people suffer from excessive sweating or Hyperhidrosis. Everyday, people struggle with sweaty hands, soaked-through shirts, sweat-stained armpits, soggy feet, and other embarrassing, often life-disrupting symptoms.

Add to this, an unpleasant body odor, or osmohidrosis ( a separate yet often related problem) and the situation can become downright devastating.

With this kind of sweating, even strong antiperspirant won't do. Drugs can be effective but cause  unwanted side effects, while surgery is expensive and has its own risks of complications. What's needed is a treatment that's revolutionary - yet safe,effective and affordable.

Nicer Nose line, Higher nose bridge and Sharper Nose Tip

A technique for creating a higher and sharper nose line as well as lifting the nose tip and giving it a sharper tip is now available through thread lifting. This technique uses specially made threads with cox that has a greater strength in holding up the nose bridge and tip while creating a hold.


Called the LUluko Noseline lift, it is a major breakthrough in creating a more beautiful nose via a non surgical approach. I consider this to be the best so far in non-surgical rhinoplasty.



With this technique, I can give a higher nose bridge, a sharper nose line and a sharper nose tip in just 1 sitting and without any downtime to the patient.

Bringing MINT Thread Lifting from Seoul to Malaysia

Was in a Seoul Korea again in January 2015.  The weather was cold and days were short but we had a fun time exploring and a fruitful training session in conducting the very new, and very effective threadlift called the MINT lift. This technique uses thicker PDO threads with barbs or cox that can hold the skin up better and longer. 



The training was conducted at the Euro Clinic,a classy and upmarket type of plastic surgical centre in the heart of Gangnam area. The owner and founder , DrChoi  is a well known plastic surgeon who currently is the biggest conducter of MINT Lift since it was first introduced just 6months ago. I had a full hands on under his guidance.

MiNT lift is a threadlift that uses thicker cox thread placed under the skin from the temple area right down to the lower facial skin to "lift" the skin against the downward pull of gravity. The lift stays as these threads are anchored in the temple area using a special Mint Needle. The final results are a more lifted…
