Injections to loose double chin

I have been going mesotherapy for face rejuvenation, hydration, scalp & hair regrowth as well as lipodissolve therapy for stubborn fat since 2005, and am always trying new solutions to improve on the outcome and results for patients. Most recently was the launch of a new "cocktail" by Italian co PromoItalia for the reduction and disappearance of double chin.

I went with a bit of skepticism and curiosity as already I have a good solution for this area. I found that the new  product called Celluform+ is even better in terms of effectiveness and side effects. This double chin Lipodissolve therapy gives results after just 1 session upto 3 sessions for more fatty neck. And it's other special ingredients including arnica Montana helps to reduce swelling and bruising. 
The demo was conducted on a gentlemen with moderate severity.  First the danger zones are outlined where injections should never be given. Then using a special grid , injection points are marked. This ensu…

Stem cells formulated from umbilical extract

Today I was introduced to a new product called Calecim. What's unique about it is it is formulated from umbilical cord extract making it human derived cells and and as close as one can get to human cells.



I was told it is best applied after a laser or micro needling procedure. So I decided to try it out. After listening to a short presentation by the founder of CellResearch who help discover and patent Calecim, we proceeded to have a QS Nd-Yag laser skin rejuvenation done. Immediately after, The Calecim Serum was applied equally to all 4 zones of my face. The serum is cooling and very soothing to the skin. My nurse, who had learnt the technique for its application, massaged it in very nicely and systematically. It felt pretty nice, I must say. 
I continued applying the serum that same night and again the day after. After that I continued with the cream extract which I am supposed to continue applying for the next 2weeks to 2months. The very next day 2 of my patients asked what I had …

Growth Factors for Hair

For those whose scalp hair is thinning , one of the treatment modalities is to infuse the scalp area with hair-specific micronutrients or hair vitamins. Even better if the micronutrients can be given along with growth factors. The best type of growth factors of course are human growth factors or hGF as the scalp skin will receive it well and the hair follicles will recognize the cells. In or to get hGF, it has been popular to use PRP which is acquired from the patient's own blood. But sometimes, it is difficult to get enough PRP fr patient due to difficult intravenous access, or patient just do not want to have a venepuncture done. So another source of hGF is now available . Acquired fr the foreskin of circumcised babies, this hGF is formulated for hair regrow th, skin Rejuvrnation and vaginal Rejuvrnation. I tried it out for one of our staff . This is how it is done: 1. The Dermastamp is prepared. Dermastamp is a device that has fine needles of different lengths on it's surfac…

Double Eyelid without cutting

Having Double eyelids is the craze in Korea, and Malaysians with "Asian" or Oriental eyelids are also demanding the same. Prior to this the only way to achieve double eyelids is through surgery.  Now Plasma soft surgery will enable me to deliver the same effect without the downtime and complications of cutting. 2 renowned Korean surgeons have perfected the method to do this with the Plexr Plasma device.  The results are pretty impressive



Soft Surgery for Upper eyelid lift

Now there is a new term " Soft Surgery" where no actual surgery is conducted but treatment results equate a surgical outcome.  Soft surgery is the term used for treatments by Plexr Plasma and Vibrance  Needle lift. I attended a training session with DrSotiris In Athens, Greece in April for a comprehensive training on the techniques and methods using these 2 new technologies. His detailed explanation and meticulous demonstrations enabled us to adopt his method to deliver very precise results.  Plexr uses plasma technology to "ablate" the superficial layer of ski i.e. the epidermis. This process of sublimation is able to cause contraction of the elastin fibers in the skin making the treated skin contract. In the case of wrinkles and line this contraction allows for its disappearance and reduction while skin looks taught we and smoother. For the upper eyelids where there is substantial fine lines, wrinkling and also drop pines, this soft surgery is able to allow enough …

Vaginal laxity & Sexual enhancement with Viveve

Vaginal laxity.Just like our skin, the vaginal tissue is made up of an inner support network of collagen fibers. During vaginal delivery Andover time, thee tissues can become stressed, stretched, and weakened. This can create a feeling of looseness, especially within the vaginal opening.
In a survey conducted of over 4000 women who had vaginal deli vies, nearly half reported concern with vaginal loosens, or laxity. These women also notice they feel less sensation and sexual satisfaction with intrcourse.
Viveve is a sensational solution for a common sexual concern.I had the opportunity to try it out the other day and due to its ease of conducting the procedure, patient comfort and unique technology requiring only 1 treatment session for affect.
So what is Viveve treatment? It is not a cosmetic procedure. It is not about how you look, but rather how you feel. It is a painless,  non-surgical , medical treatment perfoermed in our medical clinic that can increase the amount of plesurable frict…

Age-Defying Beauty Secrets using Non-Invasive techniques

1. Botolinium injections or BOTOX Botox and Dysport  is a purified substance derived from bacteria Botolinium Type A. Injections of botolinium toxin block muscular nerve signals, which then weakens so it can't contract. The end result is diminished unwanted facial wrinkles or lines. Botolinium injection (BTA) can be used to help smooth crows feet, forehead furrows, frown lines, and skin bands on the neck ( plantsman bands). The action of BTA injections lasts for 4-6 months but regular use of it every four to six months can help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and help obtain a smooth and youthful appearance. 
2. FILLERS Filler injections help to finish facial lines and restore volume.and fullness to the face. As we she, our face naturally lose subcutaneous fat ( fat under the skin). The facial muscles are then working closer to the skin surface, so smile lines and crows feet become more apparent. The facial skin also stretches a bit, adding to this loss of facial volume. Other …

Fat Injections

Fat injections uses fat harvested from the person's own body which can then be reinjected to several areas in the body  to enhance the appearance. Fat injection can be given to any part of the body where volume is deficient. Vommon areas include face ( cheeks, lips, chin, nose, forehead) , breasts, buttocks, depressed scars or cavities and chronic wounds.  Fat injections require a more extensive procedure then "off the shelf" soft tissue fillers. An appropriate "donor area" must be determined (usually the abdomen and thighs) and using a specialized technique for liposuction the fat is extracted together with its stem cells. The harvested fat is carefully processed and transplanted to the desirable sites.

Also known as "Male Menopause" , it is the counterpart of Female menopause. Testosterone or T levels in men remain relatively constant until about age 50, at which time they begin to fall slowly. However the decline in male hormone production is much more gradual then the decline in female hormones production.

Duo Lifting Thread Lift

Using the barbed threads, these threads are I serted uDuoLifting is another technique using PDO threads with barbs or cogs to lift the facial skin without surgical cutting. What is DuoLifting? DuoLifting is the use of absorbable threads in pairs to help lift the facial skin
How is it done? The skin is anesthesia end with some topical numbing cream. Then tumescent anesthesia is given throughout the area where the Duolift threads are to be inserted. Duo threads with barbs are then inserted from above the hairline going down to the mid and lower face in order to lift the laugh lines and droopy cheeks. For each barb thread another thread with "clutch" is then inserted next to it to help strengthen the hold of the skin by the threads. The no of pairs inserted depends on how much hold is required and wether the patient wants to V shape her face or to lift her sagging skin. For those who need more lifting, threads are also inserted from the mid face area right down to the jawline. Resul…

Loose 4cm in 1 session with Ultrasound

Lipo sonic your fat anyone? Lipo = fat , Sonic = ultrasound energy Liposonix is the groundbreaking equipment using High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) technology to melt and destroy fat permanently without surgery.  I was impressed with this technology as I realized many people are looking for less invasive, non surgical methods for fat reduction with no downtime and preferable minimal no of sessions. I like the idea of only 1 session to get 1 size reduction. So, despite already having a no of technologies for fat reduction, we decided to add Liposonix to our range of body sculpting devices. 
Using the same concept as TURP or focused ultrasound to blast kidney stones without surgery, liposonix focused ultrasound is thus made specific for the human fat. 

How does it work? A handpiece applicator that transmits the high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) waves is applied onto the target area, usually the abdomen or tummy. No general or local anesthesia is required.

Transfer purified fat to breasts and face

Lipotransfer or fat transfer to breasts is now becoming a popular request in my practice especially among young women with small breasts who do not desire surgery for breast augmentation and older women with post pregnancy loss of volume causing deflated looking breasts and sagging breasts. There is also an increase need for filling of the face to recreate a 3D effect which fats can do better then synthetic fillers.  Lipotransfer or Fat Grafting has been conducted worldwide since many years ago but the processing of the harvested fat was very tedious and time consuming. And if the harvested fat is not purified properly or adequately, the implanted fat will degenerate very fast making its effect last only 9-12monrhs, similar to implanted  hyaluronic acid fillers. With better purification of extracted fat, the implanted fat lasts longer ie upto 5 years and has a higher survival rate in recipient site. 
In Nov 2015, I was in Tokyo Japan for a short course on Fat Grafting and Lipotransfer u…
