1st Gender Aesthetics Conference

Recently attended the 1st Gender Aesthetics Conference in Singapore. I attended as I was interested to hear views from colleagues as well as learn new things on treatments and procedures related to differences in gender (male and female) as well as directions in treating female sexual specific problems - an area now termed "Cosmetic Gynaecology". What turned out was a meeting of old friends, making new acquaintances, catching up with supplier representatives, meeting new ones and buying more books!!
It was a fulfilling 3 days for me as although there were not many new things, it was nice revision and recapping time. The best part of all of course was being able to personally meet Dr Pierre Fournier - the "inventor" of liposuciton under tumescent anesthesia. If not for him, liposucton would n't be what it is today. At 84years old, his mind was still sharp and his sense of humor remarkable! He made his wife take all the pictures with us and informed her that he was going to take home 2 "young" Malaysian women with back to France with him....in the form of photos.


With Drs Maryiati, Pierre Fourniere, Sutina and Elias

With world renowned Dr Pierre Fournierre - what an honour.

Also met Dr  Ridaelli, another old timer in the Aesthetic Medicine fraternity. Of course, bought his book "Facial Aging" , a comprehensive account on the changes that occur with aging. He gladly signed it and after we a wonderful chat over tea. He invited me to visit his clinic in Milan, Italy which I am going to make a point to do next time I am there. Wonderful 'gurus' and wonderful people who teach and disseminate their knowledge freely and generously.

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…

How you can improve your skin with Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP .

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…
