It has been some time since I came back to Singapore and I have been so busy with so many things that I have neglected my social media for awhile. Many things happened in Korea which I am still recovering from. Please be patient with me as I clear the backlog of things!
For now, I am so excited to share with you about the aesthetic treatment I did after I came back. As a follow up for my previous Q switch, I did my 2nd Q switch session at The Clifford Clinic. This time, Doctor Chow recommended me to do botox on my jaw to make my face slimmer. Trusting his professional skills, I went ahead with it~
Headed down to The Clifford Clinic and waited patiently for my treatment.
I went in for consultation with the doctor. As usual, I removed my makeup to wait for the treatment to begin.
The nurses asked me whether I was scared of needles (I was, hahahahaa) so she applied numbing cream at the side of my jaw.
After several minutes the numbing cream took its effect and I proceeded into the room. Heres me without makeup, waiting for Doctor Chow to work his magic!
Doctor Chow was as excited as I was!!!! Its so nice to have a doctor who is so enthusiastic about his work in beautifying people. Pardon my no makeup face here.
We began with the Q switch treatment. Heres Doctor Chow with his swanky gears!
If you have missed out on my previous post here , these are the benefits of a Q switch laser:
What is Q switch laser?
- One of the most technologically advanced, FDA approved laser
- Able to remove of both superficial and deep hyper-pigmented lesions
-enables the skin to look finer, smoother, brighter and clearer up to 3-4 weeks after treatment
-boost collagen and elastin level in your skin
The process was really quick and it was not painful at all. The only discomfort I felt was when the laser was around my chin area. I guess it was because there was a new pimple mark there.
On an unrelated sidenote, doesn't Dr Chow look so cool with his medical gears hahhahaha
Also, I did the botox jab after the Q switch. It was done in less than 5 minutes, with 1 jab on each side of my jaw.
As I was afraid of needles, Doctor Chow and his assistant assured me calmly and pressed a vibrating stick against my chin for distraction. Surprisingly, I did not feel any pain even though a special method, which required moving the needle around in the needle jab area, was used. It just felt a little sour, as though you have just eaten a green apple sour sweet haha.
What is Botox?
Botox is a non invasive treatment. It acts as a muscle relaxant which will relax your muscles and cause the shape of your jaw to decrease in size and become slimmer.
Results are seen about 3-5 days after the first session.
It typically last for up to 6 months and touch-up treatment is required.
Heres a picture of my skin after the treatment. You can barely see any marks except for a few red dots. I even walked around town and went home barefaced after this.
❤️ Thank you The Clifford Clinic for taking care of my skin! With them, I know I'm always in trusted hands! ❤️
