Grow your eye lashes
New Straits Times (NST) paper reported on Wed 26th July of a "Miracle Eyelash Serum", after the current trend of wearing lash extensions has been found to leave many women with "balding" upper eyelid due to the repeated pulling off of the fake eyelashes. It seems that the glue that is used to fix the eyelashes can pull natural eyelashes out, and if repeated frequently, can stop hair from growing! The only way to treat this condition now is through hair transplant surgery. Fortunately, a serum that can boost the length and thickness of eyelashes by 50% with daily use is now available. Some of our patients are already applying such a serum and they claim their lashes have definitely grown thicker and longer, even the lower lid lashes!.
Hearing this I looked into some of the scientific data and found that the clinical trials conducted showed a 50% longer-looking lashes when used daily for eight weeks.
Our clinic now carries 'Lash Booster' or 'Rapid Lash' which is particularly good for women with sparse eyelashes or even eyebrows.
The active ingredient in the serum is prostaglandin, a compound which helps eyelashes to multiply and replenish. This ingredient was originally used for treatment of glaucoma and it was accidentally discovered that products used to treat the condition had the side effect of making lashes longer. A bottle actually lasts a long time (upto 2 years) so it's quite good value for money.
I have come across many clients who ask me about fat removal and they often confuse this with weightloss. Due to the many marketing ads all around us that offer"slimming" procedures, I find that many women are confused as to wether they want to loose weight or reduce fat.
So I categorize clients like this:
A. those who are overweight or obese with a BMI (Body Mass Index) of 27 an above. You will need to loose overall weight for a healthier and trimmer looking body.
There will be excess fat here and there but it is no use thinking about them when over all you have excess fat including visceral fat.
B. those who are of normal body weight (BMI 25 and below) or just slightly overweight (BMI 25-27) and have certain areas of stubborn fat which do not seem to go away despite exercise or would like a trimmer, better silhuoette.
For FAT REDUCTION on the spot , there are several methods to loose them. These can be minimally invasive or non invasive at all.
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…
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 …
