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.
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 …
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…
Many patients ask me about this "blood" treatment. Made popular by Kim Kardashian with her "Vampire Lift" facial several years ago, it took the world by storm and became a very popular method for skin rejuvenation adn improvemet.
Over the years I have conducted many PRP treatments.
So what is PRP therapy ?
PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma is a treatment that uses the plasma derived from a person's own blood (autologus) to release growth factors, which are cells that act as messengers to initiate skin cell regeneration.
A small amount of blood is taken and deposited into a special PRP kit. A good kit , like the Regen kit (RegenACR) is able to ensure a big quantity of growth factor(GF) cells in the plasma which will then translate to better effect on the skin.
What is PRP good for?
PRP if used to treat the skin each month, has been shown to give skin homogenecity due to regeneration of new skin. Fine lines are reduced, skin color is lightened and brightened. Overall…
