Restylane - the first Fillers

Restylane was first introduced on the market in 1996. I started practicing aesthetic medicine  in 1998. I remember it being the only filler available in the market at that time. It was introduced as a groundbreaking filler, the first of its kind.

Fillers in general have come a long way since. There are hundreds of brands in the market now but what I have observed is the staying power of Restylane and how it continued to grow - in product range, as well as in technique range. As more and more new products are developed, I also learnt more and more new techniques to treat and help my patients attain their desired enhancement.
The Restylane range of products : Restylane fillers, Restylane skinboosters and Restylane skincare, has enabled people to take care of their skin from the inside and out - instantly, effectively and long-term.

The Restylane secret is called NASHA which makes the Restylane products' unique qualities and are all based on this patented technology for stabilizing hyaluronic acid of non-animal origin.
All Restylane products contain gel particles of stabilized hyaluronic acid, giving the products a range of important benefits :
1. Long duration of effect
2..High similarity to natural hyaluronic acid
3. High lifting capacity and resistance to deformation : The filler creates volume and stays where it is injected
4.Most documented filler - been in the market for over 15years and written about in over 200 medical publications.

I loved using this range of HA fillers over the years and although I have tried many new ones as they came along on the market from time to time, I continue to go back to Restylane for its reliability, ease of use and many new indications.
Restylane fillers are thus used and great for :
1. Lip Augmentation (beautiful!)
2. Nose Augmentation
3. Mid face lift
4. Cheek Augmentaiton
5. Chin Augmentation and prominance
6. Brow shaping and under eye grooves and dark circle
7. Nasolabial fols (Deep smile lines)
8. Skin Rejuvenation (Restylane Vital)
9. Revitalize dull, creppy skin
10. Increase skin hydration and density
11. Hand Rejuvenation
12. Decolletage Rejuvenation

Restylane Skin Boosters (Restylane Vital product line) have also helped me get my patients skin "go back in time". They are designed to gradually rejuvenate the skin in areas such as the face, decolletage and hands. It restores the skin's hydrobalance and improve skin elasticity and structure as well as skin firmness. They act like reservoir of longlasting hydration leaving the skin smooth and soft with beautiful luster and glow, allowing you to look the age that you feel.

Recently, I attended a demonstration and training session for Macrolane, which is another version of Restylane HA for use on body areas like breasts and buttocks. Read on my other  topic : Non-Surgical Breast & Buttock Augmentation.

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…

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…

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 …
