HIFU Treatment – non invasive face lift!

November 20, 2015

IMG_1989

I’m back with a post that some of you girls might be interested in! So if you saw my Instagram post, I mentioned that age is hitting me hard this year since I turned 24. I put on weight more easily than before and my skin is sagging visibly. SIGH! Never thought I’d have to worry about all these but I guess it’s true when they say, age really catches up with you (and it’s scary haha).

So I was introduced to this non-invasive face lift treatment known as the HIFU Plus+ Facelift at Cambridge Medical Group! Note that it’s non-invasive so no needles or surgery involved, no downtime and pain-free! And I think 24 years old is still a bit too young to undergo invasive face lift treatment hence I opted for this instead. I want something more natural yet can enhance my features!

HIFU Plus+ Facelift is a repeatable and effective way to contour your face back into shape. It is beneficial for reducing crow’s feet, dropping eyelids, sagging skin along the jawline (my main concern & laugh lines). It uses high intensity ultrasound to produce micro collagen and tightening areas thereby lifting the skin. And you can see immediate results! I saw instant result right after the treatment!

The results aren’t significant since it’s only my first session but if you look carefully at my side profile, my laugh lines were reduced in the after picture! I can’t wait to go back for my second session next week. Doctor Lee advised me to do about 4 sessions, once a month to see a more lasting and significant result so I’ll update you more again!

But so far so good, I love seeing immediate results and the best part is that it’s non-invasive!

Favorite line of skincare : Albion

September 28, 2015

If you’ve been following my blog for a long time, you would know that I’m a big fan of Albion from my very first bottle of skin conditioner. It’s been almost 2 years (or maybe longer) since my first bottle and I still dare to say, Albion works the best for my skin. I’ve tried a couple of other brands in the past 2 years but nothing works like Albion for me. They do send me products occasionally to try out but I’m also a purchasing customer! Yes, I just bought my own bottle of skin conditioner last week cos I just finished the one they sent me and I can’t live without it. It’s been awhile since I shared about my skincare products so here’s a brief one for you!DSC05580From L to R (also in application sequence) :
Albion Eclafutur, Albion Exage white crystal milk I, Albion Skin ConditionerDSC05583Eclafutur was launched last year and it’s a hit cos it gives ahhhhmazing results! It’s my second bottle and I’m hooked. It’s a cell repairing serum which fine tunes your skin and delivers radiance to your complexion. It’s the NO. 1 step of your routine so apply this before toner, moisturiser etc! Besides promoting radiance, I feel like it aids in my skin texture as well. It feels smoother after each application!
DSC05582THIS is the one product/toner that I CANNOT live without. If you can only buy one product from Albion, go for this! This I promise, is God sent. The skin conditioner is Albion’s star product which helps in whitening, hydrating and oil control. Skin con is super effective for me in the 3 areas above and has helped to reduce my blemish problems tremendously. When I get pimple, I pour the skin con sparingly on a cotton wool and leave it on the pimple for 10 mins! Please please please buy this, it’s the best!DSC05578The other Albion product that I’ve been using religiously is the exage white crystal milk which acts as a moisturiser. It’s to be used after the serum, before skin conditioner! I love how soft and moisturising yet not greasy this is.

I’m not paid to write/hype this so this is coming from the bottom of my heart. Albion works like magic for me and a lot of people that I know of. And I always recommend Albion to my girlfriends when they ask me what’s the best skincare line I’ve used. I can’t promise it will work for everyone but I’ve seen it work on a lot of people and when it works, it works sooooo well! After you girls try Albion, please write in to me via email how it works for you cos I really love knowing that something I wrote about works for you girls (: My busy schedule might not allow me to reply every single email but I’ll be happy to even read them!

You can read more about my past experience with Albion here!
