ULTHERAPY Non-Surgical Face Lift

The new ULTHERA machine using high intensity focused ultrasound or HIFU for TISSUE TIGHTENING has arrived on our shores and of course, I voluntered to give it a try. I was the perfect candidate for it being 40-something with a little sag in the jowls and due for my second Thermage treatment this year. No fear felt, thinking it would be like a Thermage session with  heat, the technician started with my under chin and jawline area. The sensation felt like little pins and needles scratching on my skin but overall it was pretty tolerable. Then we tried on some patients, and it turned out they felt more comfortable with Ultherapy then some of the other skin tightening modalities. 1 patient even fell asleep! Both patients felt they could see the effect on their lower face immediately. Now this is amazing as lower facial sagging and laxity is one of the most difficult problems to treat. Many treatments before this including Thermage still could not tackle this area very satisfactorily. So my interest in this new technology and treatment called ULTHERAPY is piqued.

Two days later, I could still feel the tenderness( or soreness) especially along my jawline. It even disturbed my sleep a little but, no pain no gain, right? In fact, I think I could actually 'feel'my collagen contracting (if there is such a thing) and the skin tightening up! Whatever it is, there's still hope for us without surgery........

We have conducted several Ulthera treatments since then and I must say, the results are pretty impressive. Most of our patients who underwent it saw the "lift" effect immediately after! The treatment was also tolerable and not very painful to them. In fact I think less people cringe at the discomfort then I see with mono polar RadioFrequency . Best for those above 35yrs old wanting to arrest the effects of gravity's downward pull and strenghten skin against sagging, this NO DOWNTIME procedure works on the deeper layer of facial skin which is the layer that holds everything UP!

I was also interviewed on the Bella show about skin aging and Ultherapy.

Hydrafacial vs Silkpeel

Our old but very reliable microdermabrasion Diamond crystal peeling machine broke down after many years of high performance. It was one of our highest performing equipment and it had served us well. My dear Diamond MDA I shall miss you. And although I would like to continue our liaison , it does not see possible anymore as there is no longer a distributor in Malaysia. So, I have been going round researching and looking for a new MDA unit to replace our old one. Some here comes the Silk Peel and Hydra Facial.
Silk Peel conducts both dry microdermabrasion using a diamond tipped hand piece which abates and abrade the upper layers of skin. If desired, a "wet microdermabrasion" can also be conducted using the diamond tip hand piece but while the abrasion is going on, solutions containing micronutrients and hydrating agents are infused alongside. This gives for a more effective treatment as delivery is more efficient as products are more penetrate.
Now, the Hydra Facial?
Well, am …

Loose Weight in 3weeks !

Finally found a quick fix to a long term problem! This method not only can reduce the excess weight fast and permanently, it does this by burning the reserved stubborn fat in the body and not the structural fat which easily returns with a vengeance once a program is over. In summary, this "Enhanced" Weight Loss Program aims to :
1. Loose excess weight esp from stubborn fats
2. Increase and Reset Basal Metabolic Rate to a higher level and by doing the #1 and #2, able to
3. Maintain the weight loss forever! ( don't we all wish for this?) .
With all this in mind, I decided to embark on this program myself. It is Day 8 today. This protocol should reduce my weight from 0.5 to 1.0lb per day. I only need to follow a special diet plan and take the medication daily. Total loss expected if all progresses accordingly will be 6 to 9kg (or upto 15lbs). I started with 64.8kg on Day1, went up to 64.9kg on Day2 and have progressively lost between 0.3 to 0.7kg daily since. Today I am at 62…
