“What’s happened to Charlotte’s face!?”

If you’ve been on Twitter or Reddit recently, you’ve probably come across lots of comments like that...

It’s a reference to the character Charlotte in Sex and the City. The series, which became a cultural icon 20 years ago, recently rebooted as “And Just Like That...”

And while all the characters have aged, Charlotte looked more different than the others...

Her face was much broader, her lips were strangely flat and her cheeks are unusually full.

The actress, Kristin Davis, didn’t look quite like herself any more.

Initially, commentators wondered whether she’d had plastic surgery.

But it seems much more likely that she’s had dermal fillers - done badly.


I know that this kind of “unnatural” result is a great concern for many including my clients too.

Fillers are there to help ‘plump up’ areas of the face which have lost volume with age, ‘fill in’ fine lines and wrinkle and give more definition to some of the facial features like the cheeks, lip and jawline.

They’re a key tool to help one look and feel one's best, not to look overfilled or have anyone notice a procedure had been done!

So how can we avoid a result like Charlotte’s?

First, it’s important to understand what must have happened. It’s likely that an over-zealous or inexperienced injector simply used too much product when treating her.

In reality, not much filler is needed to make a great deal of difference to one's appearance.The rule of thumb is that 1ml is injected per decade of your life. So if someone is in his/her 40s, 4ml will typically be used. That may sound like a lot but it’s actually a tiny amount - less than a teaspoon across the whole face!

Unfortunately, some injectors go overboard, especially if they don’t know what they’re doing. There are lots of people injecting fillers with less than a day of training. (unfortunately). Other times, patients are asked to come in for treatment far too often, leading to a build-up of product.  

So first, it is important not to cut any corners. One must go to an injector who is experienced, well-trained and who has a reputation for producing natural results. 

A medical background, rather then as a beautician is always preferable.

Our clinics have most experienced Drs as well junior but properly trained and certified Dr to do injections. I myself has over 20years experience injectables, not in just in techniques but also in types of material used.

And we follow a specific protocol to make sure we never over-treat our clients.

In your first appointment with us, we’ll always inject the minimum amount of fillers you need.

The results may not be perfect the first round, but then we’ll ask you to come back after weeks, once the fillers have had a chance to settle, so we can judge how much more product you need to get a look you’ll really love... and which will still look completely natural.

Once we know that, it’s easier to maintain the right level in periodic visits, perhaps once ever 3-4 months. (Not more.)

We find that patients really appreciate this “slowly slowly” approach, because it enormously reduces the risk of looking over-filled or unnatural. 

So if that’s the kind of responsible approach you, too, would like, why not book a consultation with us.

We can discuss whether you need fillers - if not, or if there’s a better option for you, we’ll tell you! We’ll also answer all your questions and talk about the difference it might make for you.

 Then you can make up your mind about whether or not to go forward, without any pressure.

"Just Like That"


PS. Here’s an example of the kinds of natural-looking, beautiful results we get our clients

Take a look at these recent before-and-afters:

You can see the difference to the corners of the lip where it is no longer downturned , the mid face cheeks are lifted and client looks fresher and "happier"

This clients lips are plumper(fuller) , her nasolabial folds (smile liens) are reduced and her face look more balanced then before. She looks naturally youthful and fresher.


And doesn’t it look natural - you’d never know she’d had a treatment!

To discuss how we can help you too, ring our office on 1300-88-1788 or 0123453779 or email me right back. I'm looking forward to helping you!

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 6

Nicer Nose line, Higher nose bridge and Sharper Nose Tip

A technique for creating a higher and sharper nose line as well as lifting the nose tip and giving it a sharper tip is now available through thread lifting. This technique uses specially made threads with cox that has a greater strength in holding up the nose bridge and tip while creating a hold. Called the LUluko Noseline lift, it is a major breakthrough in creating a more beautiful nose via a non surgical approach. I consider this to be the best so far in non-surgical rhinoplasty. With this technique, I can give a higher nose bridge, a sharper nose line and a sharper nose tip in just 1 sitting and without any downtime to the patient. #nose #rhinoplasty # threadlift # nosetip # sharp nose
