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. 

The clinic we went to conducts all its lipotransfer with cell enriched fat. A demonstration on facial lipo filling with stem cell enriched fat was shown.


The results were amazing! Very natural and best part is it will last close to 7years!

There are also many people desiring stem cell infusion to improve their overall wellbeing as well as to enhance their immune system. Stem cells are also super for conditions or diseases where organ deterioration has occurred like in Diabetes, stroke, neuro-degenerative disorders, spinal cord disorders, heart disease and even cancers.  This means infusing a certain amount (at least 20mill) of cells directly into the body through an intravenous injection as well as implanting it into the deserved organs. In order to implant the correct amount of stem cells, fat is first extracted from his or her body ( autologous transplantation) If there is not much fat available, a "fat" donor is used ( Allogenic transplantation) preferably from a first degree relative of a young age in the 20s with the same blood group. 

So for our first trial session, I had my 20year old son be the donor to my 50+ yearold husband. They are of the same blood group B which makes for a perfect match. 

I started with Lipo extraction of fat from his tummy and inner thighs. 


Needed around 290-300cc of pure fat.

Once about 500cc of fat had been extracted, we processed it using special syringes and enzymes to break down the fat membranes for the stem cells to be released.



These processed fats then go through several rounds of centrifugation to get different layers.


Once all the stem cells are acquired, it is then infused into the recipient patient ( in this case my 50+ year old husband) through a slow "drip" technique.



Well, he is hoping to come out feeling like "superman" but this will be a definite boost to his health and physical strength. All in all we managed to implant almost 120mill cells into him which consists of stem cells, growth factors, immune cells, and many more types of cells that is important for health, immunity and regeneration of tissues but has reduced with age. 
Thankyou to the team who made this happen especially DrKenny Yong who took the  trouble to come over and help us through the whole process. 

Therapeutic mesenchymal Stem cell (MSC) from fats will be made available at our centre from 1st January 2016. We are absolutely excited to be able to conduct and offer this amazing treatment.
Call our centre at 1300-88-1788 or email to me sutina@en-hanze.com if you need to know more.

Menopause - bio identical supplementation

Menopause 
This is the time in a woman's life when her ovaries cease to produce an egg every 4weeks and therefore menstruation ceases so the woman can no longer become pregnant.
Menopause is confirmed after 12monrhs without a period.

Types of Menopause 
Late Menopause - when menopause happens after the age of 55yrs.
Peri menopause - this is the 5-10yesr period prior to Menopause. Hormonal changes associated with menopause commences then. Some symptoms may occur during this period even though the woman may still be menstruating.
Premature Menopause - this is when menopause occurs before the age of 40. Approximately 5% of women experience this. 

 What is Oestrogen?
Oestrogen is the name given to a class of hormones. There are 3 types of eostrogen produced by women : pest room (E1) , exist radios (E2), and Oestrone (E3). Oestradiol is the most potent. It is also spelt as estrogen.

What is Progesterone?
Progesterone is a naturally occurring hormone inborn men and women. It is essential to many vital functions in the human body. The ovaries produce most of the progesterone, but only when ovulation occurs. As menopause gets closer, less progesterone is produced. Progesterone deficiency is responsible for many symptoms in menopause. 
Progesterone also balances  estrogen. So even after hysterectomy, eostrogen in the body needs to be balanced by progesterone.

Testosterone for women
Women's ovaries n adrenal glands also produce testosterone. During menopause women experience a drop in oestrogen and testosterone production. Testosterone is important in maintaining sexual desires, strength and integrity of skin, muscle and bone. Low levels of testosterone will result in a decreased sex drive, fatigue and decreased sense of wellbeing.

Compounded hormones
Natural hormones can be obtained from sterol analogues found in many varieties of plants, primarily soybean and wild yam. These oestrogen and progesterone like compounds are then transformed in the lab to the human bio-identical natural hormones.

What are Bio identical Hormones (BIH)?
BIH are biologically identical hormones derived from plants or are exact copy formulations . Suplementing our bodies with hormone molecules that are identical to those we produce allows our bodies to benefit identically. The BIH are recognized by the body & bind quickly to receptors causing appropriate affect and are also broken down quickly n metabolized easier excretion from the body. 

Can Hormone Supplementation Therapy (HST) cause side effects?
HST goal is to restore and maintain physiological status. If hormone levels were normal from age 29-40, restoring them to same level that was well tolerated for 20years is unlikely to cause any serious side effects in later life. The risk is further reduced if natural bio identical hormones are used. Scientific studies have shown the potential benefits of HST are great. However, overdosing to excessive level causes most problems reported. So to ensure safety, levels should not be raised above normal youthful range. Side effects can also be relieved with dose adjustment. 

Hormone Testing
Adequate levels can be tested via a saliva or blood test.  Testing provides a means to establish wether or not your hormone levels are within the expected normal range. It is important to tot rate and monitor doses to minimize side effects and risks without compromising the benefits of supplementation. 

Types of Hormones can be tested
Oestradiol
Oestrone
Progesterone
Testosterone
DHEA
Cortisol
Melatonin
Total oestrogens

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 session and without the discomfort after. The treatment requires 2-3 sessions for best and long lasting results.

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
Nd Eu Chong is so knowledgeable  about. Thanks to Visa, I carry with me 4 more newbooks for facial Aging, face analysis, adipose tissue and lepton for weight loss. Will need to find time to read them.
Had a nice dinner at Marmalade pantry in Ion Mall with the people fromSolta the other nite. ivy, Derris and Darren were  reps of solta who started servicing us when Solta took over alldistributorship of their products which includes Thermage , fr axel and Liposonix. Thermage and Fraxel is already available in our centre at  En-hanze clinic. We are now waiting for our Liposonix to arrive soon! (Watch my blog on write re Liposonix ).

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 oedema and better elimination of the lipids from the subdermal cells.
 
3. Collagen Remodeling - In cellulite, there is hypertrophic collagen and elastin fibers which dimples the skin surface. Acoustic pulses imnduce proliferation of fibroblasts. This process leads to the creation of a new thickened band of collagen.
 
 
 
How is the treatment conducted ?
the device comes with a light applicator with an ergonomic grip. It is then applied onto the treatment area in a back and forth or circular motion for several minutes according to the treatment protocol.
 
 
The Acoustic Wave Therapy has been scientifically proven for more then 30years in various medical treatments (eg disintegration of kidney stones, erectile dysfunction). In aesthetic medicine, the acoustic radial soft waves were successfully modified to the clinical needs of cellulite therapy and for the treatment of other aesthetic conditions.
In the studies conducted , there is a 73.6% increase of the skin elasticity, 85% patients appreacited the maximum level of comfort and 89% patients would recommend this treatment to others. 
The X-Wave device by BTL



 









What are the results like ?
The application is painless and there is no special regimen required. Results are visible within 6 sessions and is long lasting without any side effects.

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 procedure cannot leave any obvious marks on her skin. She also needed to recover fast as a new assignment had come up and she needed to start work soon after.
She came in the morning for her procedure. Her desire was to make upper arms slimmer and her thighs smaller. After signing her consent forms and indicating the areas she wanted to treat, she changed into our OT robe. I proceeded to take pictures for the "Before"of these areas for our records.

SL with me just before we started

The Procedure.
Local tumescent anesthesia (local anesthetic mix with physiological solution ) is infused into the area to be treated. WHile waiting for the local to work, which takes 15-20min, I prepared the laser equipment.


Preparing the laser fibre optic: The laser fibretic is a long flexible and thin "wirelike" instrument that is only 2mm diameter. Half of it is wrapped in a heat proof rubberlike casing. This end is attached to the laser machine while the other end where the fibre optic is exposed, is inserted into a canula with just 2mm of the tip exposed. Here I am making sure the fibre optic transmits good, sharp laser beam.


I then inserted the laser fibreoptic via the canula through a small "stabwound" incision on the skin into the area to be treated and where the local anesthesia has been given. Once the position is correct, lasering of fat below skin starts. A red beam is seen through the skin and this indicates where the laser optic fibre tip. A popping "popcorn" like sound is also heard indicating the breaking or melting of the fat cell membranes. This picture shows the lasertip is right in the middle of the subcutaneous fat.


The melted fat becomes oil and when the area is pressed,  oily secretion is expressed out from the incision points.




The bulk of the melted fat is then extracted via syringes. Lasered fat is yellow like melted butter



The collection of lasered fat or "Lysate" from the upper arms, inner thighs and saddle bags.



Because all is done under local anesthesia with just a little bit of oral sedation, SL is able to go home immediately after, and return to work the very next day. She is recommended to wear a firm compression garment for at least 2 weeks. After 3 days, she undergoes a radio frequency treatment (RF) to help with drainage, and healing. After 2 weeks, she will continue with mechanostimulation by Endermologie sessions to help with skin tightening and to farther enhance the sculpting of the area.

Laser Hair Removal - the faster way to hair free days


Candela_pic
Our Medical Grade Laser Hair Removal with the Candela 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.                                                                                                               
GentleYagSmall
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 hair removal techniques like shaving, tweezing or waxing and depilatory creams which provide only temporary relief!
Until now, the only recognized way to remove hair permanently has been by electrolysis.



The Laser treatment is based on a pulse size. Most lasers can target only 9mm per pulse where as with Candela Lasers we can target upto 18mm per pulse. Therefore it takes LESS than 1/2 the time per treatment compared to other Laser systems. The combination of the instant cooling and large pulse size makes this system the most gentle and fastest on the market.

How does the laser treatment work?
The laser creates a beam of light that penetrates into skin where it delivers a controlled amount of targeted heat. This heat travels down the hair shaft to cause destruction to the hair follicle and thus permanently stops it from producing hair.

Which are the areas I can treat?
You can treat any part of the body or face and any type of hair with the Gentle Yag.
Generally popular areas are :
Bikini Lines
Brazilian
Underarms
Chest hair
Upper back hair
Tummy hair
legs, thighs, forearms
Beard
Moustache
Facial Hair

What can I expect during treatment?


Treatment will take place in our private cubicle. 
You will wear safety eyewear to protect your eyes from the laser light.
A treatment could take as little as a few minutes to as long as an hour, depending on the area and condition being treated. 
After the laser is completed, a cold pack or mask will be applied to help further cool down the skin.

Does it hurt?
Some patients may feel a slight discomfort with the laser pulse, sometimes described as the snapping of a rubber band on the skin. This discomfort resolves in a second and is minimized by Candela's DCD cooling.

How many treatment sessions will I need?

The number of sessions will depend on the area to be treated and the condition of your skin.  Usually, multiple treatments are required, as the process is only effective when the hair is in its active growth phase.

How do I prepare for treatment?

Patients scheduled for hair removal should avoid tweezing, electrolysis or waxing for four to six weeks prior to treatment.  

If you have had a history of perioral herpes and are scheduled for facial hair treatment, prophylactic antiviral therapy may be prescribed. 
Any hair should be completely removed by shaving on the day prior.
Your skin should be thoroughly cleaned and dried, removing any makeup or creams on its surface before laser treatment.

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.

3. Pixel Laser : a fractional Erbium-Yag laser for light ablation to remove active acne, reduce box acne scars, brighten skin, get rid of acne PIH and even out skin tone
4. Mosaic or Fraxel Laser : a fractional Erbium-Glass laser system that amazingly reduce pores, even large ones and brighten skin.
5. SmartDot2 LAser : a fractional Co2 laser system that is super ablative for skin tightening, reduction of deep acne scars and resurfacaing of dull , weather beaten and photoaged skin.

What do conditions do they treat ?
1.Skin Tightening & Lifting for face, neck, upper arms(bat arms), inner thighs, upper knees and tummy, breasts

2. Scarring -  acne scarring w ice picks and box scars, dark pigmented scars, hypertrophic scars, surgical scars

3. Active Acne - with pustules and papules, comedones, white heads, black heads

4.Skin Brightening & Rejuvenation - dull skin, uneven skin tone, patchy skin

5.Skin Lightening - dark skin tone inner thighs, underarms, Hyperpigmentation, Melasma, Lentigenes, Sun Spots, Skin tags, lightening of areolar, lightening of labial skin, tattoo removal, birthmarks

6.Hair Removal - underarms, bikini line, Brazilian, facial hair, legs, forearms moustache, beard area,

7. Vein Removal - spider veins on face, perialaar telangectasia, veins on legs & feet, facial veins

8. Pore Reduction & Skin Refinement - facial pores, large pores, high sebum secretion

9.Stretch marks - arms, thighs, buttocks, hips, tummy

I will go through the different types of lasers 1 by 1 afer this and applying them to the different skin conditions.

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. CoolCurve for the love handles or bra bulges,
3. CoolCore+ for curved areas like the armpit fat! banana folds below buttocks, or men boobs ( moobs),
4. CoolMax for larger lower tummy fats,
5. CoolFit for underarm and inner thighs fats and now
6. CoolSmooth for the outer thighs and saddle bags.

Our Medispa has all these applicators now and so we can treat you to transform your figure and body to the desired shape and look, without cutting, without laser, without suction, without pain and without any downtime.


Cool Smooth, when applied to the saddle bag fats, will reduce it by 20-30%! Enough to give you a smooth and slimmer thigh. It's a two hour treatment while you relax in our Coolsculpting room with WiFi or while watching a good movie. Our Coolsculpting Therapist will be with you at all times during the treatment.

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 out patient setting. Immediately after, a mild to moderate swelling is present which often goes away in 1-2 days.

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 the skin and a plastic facial "mask" is used to cover the face while pure oxygen is again infused into the mask allowing for the breathing in of pure O2 as well. THis to me also gives me a 10min pick up of oure oxygen detoxification while my skin calms down and heals.
After everything is removed, woallah! my skin is whiter / fairer then before !
Quite blissful too, I must say.
If you want to try it out, call 1300-88-1788 @ En-hanze Aesthetic Centre or En-hanze MediSpa and ask for the OxyCeutical Facial.

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.
 The ALMA SWEATX Solution !
Sweat X is a new radio frequency technology that affects the sweat glands in the armpits and palms to reduce sweatiness. It works by delivering precisely controlled, thermal energy to the treatment area, selectively deactivating the sweat glands. The treatment is quick and painless, with improvement often seen after only 1 treatment. This completely new treatment for excessive sweating and body odor is lasting, safe, painless and clinically proven to work without the use of drugs, toxins or surgical incisions.


The treatment takes 10-15min for each underarm. The treatnment is not painful as the procedure is performed by constantly moving the applicator over the treatment area ( In-motion technique) to gradually build up heat in the target area. This method prevents superficial burns while an integrated cooling system cools the skin surface , preventing the sensation of pain.
As the SWEATX deactivates sweat glands without any side effects including soreness, or altered sensation of the skin, you can return to normal activities immediately after treatment.

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.

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 facial skin, Vshaping of the face and reduction of jowling or skin droop along the jawline. Areas that can be treated are brows, mid face, lower face, neck areas. 
The threads are fully biodegradable and dissolves in 4-6 months leaving the lift intact and lasting for the next 1.5 to 3 years. 
I think this is the answer to a non surgical face lift that actually works and stays as the PDO threads in MINT is the thickest so far.
The procedure can be conducted under local anesthesia and effect is immediate. Some swelling and bruising might be experienced but otherwise, there is minimal downtime.
