Soft Surgery for Upper eyelid lift

Now there is a new term " Soft Surgery" where no actual surgery is conducted but treatment results equate a surgical outcome. 
Soft surgery is the term used for treatments by Plexr Plasma and Vibrance  Needle lift. I attended a training session with DrSotiris In Athens, Greece in April for a comprehensive training on the techniques and methods using these 2 new technologies. His detailed explanation and meticulous demonstrations enabled us to adopt his method to deliver very precise results. 
Plexr uses plasma technology to "ablate" the superficial layer of ski i.e. the epidermis. This process of sublimation is able to cause contraction of the elastin fibers in the skin making the treated skin contract. In the case of wrinkles and line this contraction allows for its disappearance and reduction while skin looks taught we and smoother. For the upper eyelids where there is substantial fine lines, wrinkling and also drop pines, this soft surgery is able to allow enough contraction to open up the eyes, lift the upper eyelid and even take away the "hooding". 
It is found after 3sessions most patients can achieve almost 70% improvement and look as good as if urgent had been done!
I found this to be true when I tried it out for 8 patients before leaving for Athens. 
I am very excited to start conducting more and more of this procedure as the results are great and cost of procedure is reasonable so my patients can afford to have this done rather then surgery.

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…
