What's Happening......

Our clinic renovation and upgrading works have finally started and the whole area ia a mess! It's really tough to work calmly and efficiently with the noise and everything all over the place. Contractor says it'll be ready by 28th Dec (I hope!) and the place should look very nice and feel very comfartable by then. A lot of our patients are surprised about the upgrades but we felt it was time as the ceiling was falling down (literally...) and the carpets were peeling. SO come over in January for en-hanze's new look....

New Treatment

Returned froim Korea last week. Sooooooooooo cold. Went to learn and see a new technique in Breast augmentation using one's own fat as the breaST FILLer. Best is that teh fat is also used to derive stem cells which is also reimplanted into the fat-filled breast. Wow! major improvement! The patient went fr A-Cup size to C-cup size! So folks, wait for this machine to arrive and woala! you've got new breasts....

Will be leaving for Yangoon, Burma on 10th Aug ie this SUnday to give a talk on "Skin Fatigue" and "Microbutrients for Skin Health" during a launch held by Mega Health Sciences for their new supplement for skin called GLOW.This will be the first time I visit Myanmar and I'm pretty looking forward to it. The launching ceremony is quite a grand one being attended by 250 people made up of celebs, artists and the who's who of Yangoon.....

Thermage

We did our first 2 cases of face thermage today. DrRey did 1 half and I did the other. The first pt did well as almost immediately after her jowls were gone! Our second pt did do as well as she was very sensitive to the heat and she also had quite a bit of skin laxity.
Was in SIngapore on Wednesday, courtesy of Innomed Singapore, to view their latest machines. Mr DAvid Loo, their MD was kind enough to go through all their latest ( so much so he forgot about lunch for me!) equipment. Innomed Singpore was the 1st company to supply laser machines in Malaysia. Had lunch at a lovely Thai restaurant and had my first "Sticky rice Durian" dessert. Goodbye mango rice and hello durian rice.......

Body Odor

Hi! Welcome to my newly setup blog.
