Grow hair in just 16 weeks!

A new simple but very effective device is now in town. The iGrow LLLT device for home use to help regrow and improve on the cellular condition of our scalp hair follicles. Wasn'r sure how effective it is and although there are many clinical papers and studies conducted to show its effectiveness, I only really believed it when patients started coming back and reporting amazingly good results!

In 1967, Professor Endre Mester of Semmelweis University observed that skin cells became healthier and actually grew hair in the right light. Apira Science continued the research, and the rest is hair history...




Studies then proved that hair responds best to red light in the 650 - 670 nm wavelength range.
Tests have shown that pulsing light can enhance the effectiveness of Low Level Laser Therapy.
Thus the result from decades of research : iGrow - the world's most advanced hands-free hair rejuvenation system.
From research to our home.
Today, low-level lasers and improved technology make…

The Latest Endermologie - The Integral Lipomassage

Our dear Endermologie Cellu M6 machine broke down recently after 10years of high performance in keeping our ladies' body sculpted, taut and firm (see Website http://www.en-hanze.com/). Instead of repairing and replacing the broken down parts, we decided to get the latest LPG Endermologie machine : THE INTEGRAL. The integral can do more indications and is more effective in a 30min session then the Cellu M6. It can also conduct the Lipomassage better then the L6. The Integral is great for Cellulite reduction, improving circulation, overall body skin tightening, natural detox and lymphatic drainage, while smoothening out those abnormal buldges that seem to creep up as we age : bra buldge,love handles, saddle bags, knee buldges. This treatment is also great for post natal body reshaping and drainage. Our women get back into shape almost immediately after undergoing the endermologie sessions.








Through its mechano-stimulation concept the Integral can also conduct "Endermolift" …

Liposculpter in Ho Chin Min City

In Ho Chin Min City (HCMC) Vietnam 7th October. Attending a training session for power Assisted Liposculpter (PAL) under Prof Nguyen Anh Tuan at the HCMC Medicine and Pharmacy University-Faculty of Medicine. Workshop was for Techniques in Advanced and Basic Liposculption.

6 pack tummy now possible

It's now possible to create that 6packs tummy that most men(and women) yearn to have! Through a technique originally created by a Brazilian plastic surgeon, the tummy six pack can now be created through power assisted liposuction. Been working on those muscles in the gym or at home? it's taking too long to form? Too much fat in the abdo wall? WEll, now all that excess fat concentrated in the abs area and hiding those muscles, can be lysed and extracted through a save technique called liposculpter. The probe vibrates in an oscillating fashion to break down the localised fats and a tubing attached to a suction pump extracts this broken down fat immediately. Once most of the fat has been extracted, the liposculpter technique is then conducted to "sculpt" the abdominal wall to enhance the abdominal muscles. Results are great! I'm excited about this new technique I've learnt and made availableat our centre.

Kinerase

Kinerase range was "relaunch" in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) on 30th Sept 2011 at the KL Hilton. 2 invited speakers gave their scientific findings as well as clinical experience in using the products. Its special ingredient is KINETIN which has been found to regerate new elastin and collagen fibres after just 4weeks of use.
At the moment Kinetin is only found in Cosmeceutical products but in future it might also be available in oral form for antiagting purposes.






It also has an effect almost similar to Argeriline which is able to relax the fine muscles and this is especially good for fine lines or wrinkles around the eye area. So for those who are not keen on Botolinium injections for their crows feet or those with fine lines in the lower eye lid, Kinerase Eyes will be a perfect treat. The product range now comes in several forms ranging from a basic cream or lotion containing 0.1% Kinetin, an eye cream and a peptide cream as well as combined with vitmin C for more antioxidant ben…

Skin Active by NeoStrata

Attended the Skin Active by NeoStrata product launch on 22nd Sept at the Boulevard Hotel in Mid Valley. Dr Efron, a dermatolist from the US gave the talk. She was involved in the initial product study. Most exciting was when she spoke about their patended ingredient from a Swiss apple stem cell whihc in the study showed that it can grow dying skin cells of a midle aged skin to almost the same thickness as a 20 yr old! This with all the science behind it and the reputable name of NeoStrata make the products a no miss. So, immediaely I ordered a set for myself.

Vulvalar Whitening

Many Asian women experience a darkening of the inner thigh skin or the perineum skin as they age and especially after pregnancy. This is a very common phenomenon and can be quite unbecoming especially in a swimsuit or bikini. Sometime this darkening is due to the rubbing of inner thigh skin together due to excess fat in the thighs or a fungal infection which causes itchiness and scratching. Our new laser can now treat this area of skin. Each treatment can improve the condition by at least 20%. Because of this I usually recommend 3 sessions with each session 1 month apart. Although I must say that some women have found satisfactory outcome even after just 1 treatment.

Oxygen Facial with Intraceuticals - Madona's secret

Ever wondered why our skin looks duller and sallower as we age? In fact some of us are not even "aged" yet, but are already having dull looking skin!. Do you know that by age 30, the Oxygen levels in our skin has dropped by 25% and and by 40yrs the drop is 50% ? WOnder then what is the secret of famous celebrities with glowing, luminous skin whatever their age? Despite their long hours of work, late nights, and hectic schedule, their skin shines through without much makeup and remains glowing and taut. Well, the secret is the Intraceuticals Oxy Facial which Madonna endorses. She has this treatment for herself daily to infuse pure hyperbaric oxygen along with serums containing hyaluronic acids, multivitamins and minerals.





I have tried the Oxy facial a couple of times and found the amazing effect is real. Our clients are pretty happy with the results too and some are getting "addicted" to the feel of their skin afterwards that they are coming back weekly for treatmen…

HCG+Diet 3weeks course

Am now on normal eating. Although the apetite to consume large ammounts of food is gone, there is an almost costant hunger I feel throughout the day. A little bite here and there is enough to make me feel satieted. My 16yr old lost 12.2kg (equiv to 26lbs) in his 3 week course. It was amazing watching his weight practically drop 1kg per day. He needs a new wardrobe now , but best of all he feels good about himself, looks incredibly fit and is able to wear all his form 2 clothes! His BMI is still at 25 (ideal for adults) so we are planning to have a 2nd course done at the end of this week after 6 weeks of rest. I am hoping we can achieve more weight(fat) loss to achieve his BMI of 22 or 23 (ideal). Another observation I noted is that his body shape has changed from a chubby teenager to a lean young man, almost as if he's been going for workouts at the gym!

Coolsculpting is now faster

We now have acquired the Z8 head for our Coolsculpting mchine whihc covers a larger area of treatment. It's effect is 2.5 times of our present smaller Z6 head and 1 treatment cycle is also 1hrs. So you get to treat 2.5 timesmore in the same duration and best of all, at a much lesser cost! had lunch with the trainer last week, and I was told that massaging the area firmly in a twisitng, 'pinching" way helps to break up the crystallized fats faster - akin to dropping a bagful of ice cubes onto the floor rel hard-the ice shatters immediately to small pieces and thus will melt faster.

New Revolutionary Laser for Leg veins

Completed my training visit at Allure Medical Spa, Detroit for "endovenous laser" procedures. The procedure entails using laser technology to ablate or "burn" the varicose veins in the legs. Results are permanent with no downtime to the procedure. I saw many cases and tried my hands on a few patients under the guidance of Dr. Charles Mok, the Vascular Specialist at Allure. The staff at their Vein Centre were helpful and obliging, especially Deneen, the Ultrasound tech, and Greg the Nurse Practitioner.

I was initially apprehensive with the actual procedure, but after watching Dr Mok's skilled technique as well as his staff's efficiency, I am confident that now we can have a safe, longterm nonsurgical remedy to the problem of leg veins.



Dr Mok is one of the first doctors to be board certified by the American Board of Phlebology (treatment of veins) : he has specialized in the treatment of varicose veins for several years and has performed thousands of laser ve…

Leg Veins Goodbye

Finally touched down into Detroit after 20hrs of flight. What a longggg haul! Am attending a week of training for treatment of leg veins using a laser called CTEV Cool Lipo in a clinic called Allure Medical Spa under the tutorship of Dr Charles Mok and Dr Brett Kotlus. The clinic is situated in a township called Shelby Township just outside Detroit City. This is a new technique to treat large leg veins-those bluish bulging veins running down the legs, where before this would need a surgical proceudre called "Stripping".

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…

Non-Surgical Rhinoplasty

Now, beautiful noses can be created NON-SURGICALly with substances called FILLERS. These are made of either Hyaluronic Acid(HA), Gels (PMMA, PMAA) or Calcium Hydroxypeptide(CHP). I have been carrying out this procedure for several years now where I have done NOSE ENHANCEMENT with Juvederm, Surgiderm, Esthelis B, Teosyal, Restalyne, Radiesse, Aquamid, BioAlcamid and I have found RADIESSE used for nose enhancement be the best. Recently our clinic had a promotion for NOSE AUGMENTATION using the Radiesse filler and I must say the results is really good! With this filler I can sharpen the bridge, reshape the nose, build and increase bridge and tip height, all with a single substance and in 1 sitting! The procedure is almost painless as a local anesthesia is given and barely any needle marks or swelling after. Best part is the product can last upto 2years. Radiesse is also good for cheek and chin augmentation as it gives a nice "lift" to the cheekbone and enhances the definition…

Face Slimming & Shaping

I have been receiving quite a number of interested querries and consults on FACE SHAPING and FACE SLIMMING. Why the sudden interest, I wonder? Is it becasue people are just only now aware of the availibility of procedures like Botolinium toxin A (BOTOX, DYSPORT) injections? or is there a sudden surge in the population of people with 'wide" faces? For those who of you out there interested in face shaping or slimming, there are actually several ways to go about it.
If the broadness of your face is due to the protrusion of the jaw angle, and if this is due to strong jaw muscles( to check this put 2 fingers on the muscles at the angle of the jaw, clench your teeth and see if your fingers bounce outwards), then you have a condition called "MASSETER HYPERTROPHY". This is easily treated with Botox or Dysport injections. The effect is amazing! Within 2 weeks, your jawline can narrow down such that people may think you've lost weight or you are someone else.
If instead t…

Laser Vagina Rejuvenation

Our V2LR laser handpiece is finally here. Had a revision session with Prof Zerbinatti in the clinic on 3rd Jan. Imagine, for those of us who wish to "rejuvenate" ourselves can do so now with ease and painlessly. Just make an appointment with the clinic, come in 30min earlier so a topical numbing cream can be applied, and have the procedure conducted and completed in 1/2 hr,tops. What will you get ? Well, internally the lasering will "puff"up the mucosa of the vaginal wall by collagen remodeling, as well as improve sensations. Externally the procedure can lighten the skin color, increase sensitivity as well tighten surrounding area. ALl these in just 3 sessions! Prof Zerbinatti claims that in his clinic this is currently the most popular procedure among women in their 30s and 40s.


I am very excited about this procedure. I know a lot of women out there do not have any problems, and therefore do not require any surgical LVR but would like to just improve. Like everyhti…
