Lips filler by Kowayo

Thursday, October 5, 2017

A beautiful smile not only consist of a set of pearlie white teeth, the lips is a major factor too! 
Not everyone is blessed with the perfect lip texture, shape and volume and this is why many resort to intensive usage of lip stick, lip gloss and lip balms all the time to correct it. Ironically, some type of lip balm may actually make your lips even drier than before.
Some people are born with a thinner lips, some having a thicker upper lip than the lower ones and another with terribly chapped lips. (Like me.)

I’ve been living with my wounded lips due to my habit of peeling off the dry surface of my lips whenever it tries to heal for over 2 years. I couldn’t stop myself from touching it. It was a habit when I was little and things got better when I was introduced to makeup. 

Ever since I had my first lip balm, it grew into an obsession of buying more even before finishing any piece of it. Good thing, my lip were not peeling as bad anymore but.....this new obsession hurts my wallet. 

Well.... how did my lip-peeling obsession came back? 
Just one fine day, I decided to change my usual bag and I totally forgotten about my lip balm. My lips start to dry up as usual IN FEW HOURS.... my hands couldn’t help but starts finding the opening and peel the dry layers off causing it to bleed. Then, that wounded site forms a hard surface which I couldn’t take it either and peel that off too. So...... it has gone to an extend where I even had my lip balm on but my mind were still all about “pull it off!” 

Few weeks after my last session of fillers for my forehead, I was introduced to try out a lip filler which might help to solve these problem. 

This procedure were done by Dr Wong who is really attentive, easy-going and friendly! 

Dr Wong Kee Seng is a physician registered by Singapore Medical Council (SMC). He obtained his post-grad qualification MRCP from the Royal College of Physicians, United Kingdom. With special interest in dermatology, he completed his study in Diploma of Practical Dermatology in Cardiff, UK. He is also a member of the American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine. A seasoned veteran in the aesthetic arena, he will customize a set of fuss-free non-invasive procedures to achieve your desired results. Entrust your beauty needs in the hands of Kowayo Aesthetic Clinic today to rediscover your splendor.

This fillers that I’m doing would help to create a smoother and subtly plumper lips. 

They started off numbing my lips with the ice pack. As they do not recommend numbing cream for lip treatment. To be honest, I was really worried this time. But, when Dr Wong started inserting the needle, it wasn’t as painful as I thought. Pain rating: 4/10 consider a much fatter ant bite and it is bearable. 

Pain? Nothing beats the pain of an open wound on my lips before I had the fillers done and I had tomyum on the same day. Woohhh. (Don’t try) 

After every bit of fillers injected, he would pull the needle out, stand back and stare really hard just to make sure my lips look balance and good before increasing the ml. 

There are many types of dermal fillers that can be injected in your lips and around your mouth. But the most common fillers today are products that contain substances similar to hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body. It helps increase volume in your lips.

These types of dermal fillers are sometimes called "hyaluronic acid fillers."

Uses of Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Hyaluronic acid fillers can improve the appearance of your lips by adding:
• Shape
• Structure
• Volume

The effects typically last around six months. After that more injections are needed to keep the volume of your lips.

Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Once injected, the gel in the filler supports and shapes the tissues of the lips.

The benefits of using hyaluronic acid fillers include:
Control over lip volume. The amount of substance injected can be controlled, so the doctor has better control over how much lip volume is created.


Here’s one before my lip filler. 

And after....visibly smoother & plumper. Not too full that makes me a Kylie’s double.

Side profile: before

And after!!

 My lips feels a lot smoother and I stopped touching my lips that often too!! Well, this is a good sign! My lips are healing and I like how it feels now.

Some minor updates about my boring life

Sunday, September 3, 2017

Been really lazy for the past few weeks. I'm still not getting used to this working adult life. The work life balance struggle is real! I ate really healthy for 2 weeks straight during my lunch hour in office. Spending this body-loving days with an extra hot cayenne pepper...questioning myself whenever I got my tongue sent to hell, "why am I doing this to myself." And the vicious cycle continues for another week. I did feel slightly lighter and healthier (IM KIDDING). 

At least for two weeks, I'm not suffering from food coma. 


So, just a month back. Contacted by Japalan's boss to attend a Sasa X Klara Cosmetic launch. It has been so loooong since we met. He didn't age abit! 

Tried out Klara's goodies and I'm in love with makeups again. Hahaha! Girls problem. 

Unarguably the best water-proof liquid lipstick. That stays the whole day. 

Kiss-proof? Wanna do a test with me? Hehehe


Review of my fore-fillers with Kowayo

Wednesday, August 16, 2017

A high and full forehead is generally consider a beautiful feature across many countries be it in the western or asia as it makes you look alot more youthful.
 
Have you realised, most makeup youtubers would end it off with slapping on em
gorgeous glow/shimmer powder on these areas:
By applying it on these area, it make your features POP right away. The forehead is always one of the to go for area when it comes to adding the glow.
 
Apart from makeup, HA fillers is another options we can explore to achieve that desirable features you want instantly. With minimal or no downtime(it varies). 
 
What is HA(Hyaluronice Acid) Fillers Revanesse?
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in your body. High concentrations are found in soft connective tissues and in the fluid surrounding your eyes. It's also in some cartilage and joint fluids, as well as skin tissue. It is extracted and reformulated and now has become one of the most popular kinds of injectable fillers. If the term sounds familiar, it's because the same substance is often injected into the aching joints of people with arthritis to ease pain and provide extra cushioning.
 
In my earlier post, i've shared about my experience with ELLANSE Fillers and that i'm extremely happy with the results as it turns out really natural and it has been a month now? I can already see my complexion improving due its unique features that it stimulate collagen within my skin as it goes in time. My boyfriend were impressed by it too. HAHA!
 
This treatment is widely used on different area of your face to volumnize and enhance the features and some other common problems and enhancement like:
Acne or facial scarring
Cheek depressions
Crow's feet at the corner of your eyes
Smile lines that run from the side of the nose to corners of the mouth
Frown lines between the eyebrows
Marionette lines at the corners of the mouth
Redefining the lips
Smoker's lines; vertical lines on the mouth
 
Side effects are rare but can include redness, swelling, and bruising at the injection site.
 
This time, im going for another form of fillers for another "FLAT" side of me.
.
.
.
 NOT BOOBS.
But thanks for making a guess.
.
Its my forehead. Well, keep reading and you will know why im so incline to get it done after my eyes and cheek. Im not obsessed, really.
Dr Wong has been meticulously working his magic on me for the past month and this time,
another challenge for him.
 
Like i say, it is always important to work with a doctor who is very experience when it
comes to injectables be it botox or fillers.
 
One possible complication that involved fillers is when the fillers were wrongly injected into the blood vessels, it can causes
skin tissue necrosis.
 
I do know of a clinic(not aesthetic) who are doing "affordable" treatments like this as most of my Malaysian ex-colleagues introduces him to each other as it is "affordable". Nothing goes wrong so far or i've not heard anything bad about him but i just didn't like how it turns out. It can be really un-natural that one look you know they did it. *AHEM*


Dr Wong Kee Seng is a Revanesse filler trainer.
A seasoned veteran in the aesthetic arena, he will customize a set of fuss-free, effective & non-invasive treatment to achieve your desired results.
 
CHECK IT OUT! My fuller forehead after one treatment.
 
Honestly, the pain is bearable and in fact during the treatment i almost fell asleep. HAHAHA
it is not as uncomfortable as i thought. Of course, the pain meter varies as everyone has got their tolerance for pain. This treatment takes around 20mins includes the waiting time for the numbing cream to take its effect.
 I had 3 syringes of Revanesse filler in my forehead to get from this pathetic form to goddess.
I went back a week after to get it touch up and had another 0.7 syringe filled. 
My forehead is pretty flat & boney looking thus getting it to shape would require more fillers.
Some might just need 1-2 syringe to get that effect. DEPENDS.
Please check with Dr Wong to find out more k?
 So, im ending this post with my haunting old face and my happy new face.

Update: Kowayo Ellanse Fillers experience & results

Saturday, July 15, 2017

 
I'm back with an updates of how ELLANSE fillers doing for my eyes and cheeks.

Previously, I had a jab through my cheek to my tear trough to improve my panda eyes and my prata cheek. By lifting the cheek, it also helps to improve the under eyes hollowness.


As I age, my cheek decided that it is a good time to say goodbye thus getting some ELLANSE on my cheek is definitely something I look forward to.

 
After my first visit, my dark eye circle has drastically improved a lot. Just a wee bit of concealer could already provide a flawless coverage for my eye area.
So just last week, I went for my reviews with Dr.Wong and he decided that it would be good to have a little more ELLANSE to achieve a smoother, plumper-looking eyes.

Of course, result varies. You would not be getting a completely flawless under eyes right away if your condition is as bad as mine. Late night, long hours staring at my computer, heavy concealer, over-rubbing my eyes, removing of makeup the wrong way and my bad sinus issue.

It takes time to stimulate your own collagen to help improve your problem after the jab. Well, at least you still get to see immediate effect of improvement which is absolutely comforting and amazing.
 

So here's the result since 1st visit to the touch up appointment and.... how i look now.
.
.

 
1st photo on the left: before ELLANSE with heavy concealer coverage on under eye.
 
2nd photo in the middle: After my first ELLANSE jab, about 2weeks after.
(a little concealer over under eyes)
 
3rd photo on the right: A week after touch up.
Cheeks are more prominent, under eyes are a lot smoother, less visible
dark eye circle and check out my natural glow. *BLINK BLINK*
(with only light coverage foundation, no concealer on my under eyes)
 
It is pretty obvious that even with makeup, my dark eye circles are just BAD.
And that, most of us knew having too much heavy makeup can cause fine lines which eventually makes our skin age faster as well.
 
Dark eye circles > Concealer >
Age your skin > Worsen condition >
 * REPEAT *
 
It's a vicious cycle.
:(

Well, there's a solution to end these. E.L.L.A.N.S.E.
 
Why choose ELLANSE?


 
1. Immediate correction of wrinkles and folds

2. Stimulation of your own collagen for long-lasting natural results 
3. Last about 3-4 years

Made of poly-caprolactone (PCL), a well-known totally bioresorbable soft medical polymer, Ellanse retains its volume of between three and four years, before totally resorbed and removed from the body, with no residues of any kind left behind.

Because it takes a long time to resorb, any over filling will not be able to remove right away like the other dermal fillers. So, I strongly emphasize that this treatment has to be managed by an experienced doctor who knows the right amount, the right position with a good knowledge to have it done.

I like my results and of course I trust my doctor who is doing it for me.

少女针 Ellanse Filler by Kowayo Aesthetic

Wednesday, June 28, 2017

Dewy Shine Ellanse (少女针) is a specially designed Collagen Stimulating treatment for
lifting the cheeks, forehead, chin, tear trough area. It is also particularly effective at wrinkles removal. Ellanse has a natural facelifting effect by stimulating your body’s own collagen – recommended for individuals seeking collagen stimulation in Singapore.

What's the difference between Ellanse and other dermal fillers
(Juvederm, Restylane)?
 

It is known for its effective and long lasting results. At Kowayo, they have the ones that could last up to 2-4years which the others could only last up about 12-18months. It stimulates your own collagen to correct volume loss, wrinkles and folds – treating the underlying causes of facial aging thus giving you that natural smooth & radiant visage.

LONG-LASTING & NATURALLY GLOWY SKIN, WHY NOT??


Was introduce to Kowayo to experience its dermal fillers treatment. It might be my first time doing it but im absolutely not worried at all because i have my trust with the experienced Medical Director, Dr Wong.

Kowayo Aesthetic's medical director, Dr Wong Kee Seng, is a physician registered with the Singapore Medical Council (SMC). He has a special interest in dermatology with a postgraduate MRCP qualification from the Royal College of Physicians, as well as a Cardiff University Diploma of Practical Dermatology from the UK. He is also a member of the American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine. As a doctor with extensive experience, he is the appointed official regional trainer for Ellanse.

In case you are wondering which area is my concern.
.

.

.


I've got very dark eye circle. So bad, it hurts.....
.

.

.
 my wallet.

You have no idea, how much money i've spent on getting the ideal concealer for em black holes.
So, im here for a Tired Eyes Correction Treatment(Fillers) with them.

What Tired Eye Correction (Dark eye circles treatment) can do for you?
Dark eye circles or dark eye rings appear can appear as shadows below or around the eyes.
Looking for answers on how to get rid of dark eye circles? Kowayo's signature, Tired Eye Correction targets the tear trough area just beneath the eyes where a shadow or dark-eye circle often gives the appearance of tiredness.

In many cases, simple skincare products or eye serum application will not be able to help with this under-eye hollowness and discoloration. Patients will generally require a complete dark eye circles treatment to rectify the issue. Individual results can vary.

Successful treatment will reduce the dark eye rings that make you look tired and restore your youthful look. Reduce or eliminate the dark eye rings and reduce eyebags quickly*.

• Remove your eye-bags
• Fix dark eye circles

• No bruising or swelling
• Non-surgical

Here's the process of my visit to Kowayo Aesthetic.
 
 Was sharing my pain of having dark eye circles and tired eyes with Dr.Wong.
He gave a detailed explaination of how it could be improved with Ellanse's insertion from the cheek to tear trough, showing me a reference of how it would look after the jab.
I was already excited to get it on right away when i see the results. :D

Friendly Aesthetician removing my makeup and applying numbing cream for me.

 In about 15-20mins, we are ready to go~
 Filling up the particulars while waiting for the numbing cream to settle in.
 Ice pack on insertion area and let's go.....
 Let's be real, the insertion of the jab is not painful at all.
BUT...
there's moment where the "filling" and "pressing" got involved, I do feel some
bearable "extraction" pain.
Pain rating: 3/10
 
After the jab, no pain, no bruise. Just two mini marks. Which blended very well with my pimples.
PIMPLES.... are bigger than that marks.

BEFORE(with concealer) & RIGHT AFTER(with minimal touch up)
Have a closer look! Hollow and shadowy spot under my eyes are fuller and smoother now.
马上变女神!

There is no downtime for the fillers done.
For some, they might have slight swelling and bruises which lasted a few days,
but this is common. Bruises are not in blue and green, don't worry!
They advise no alcohol, no hot steam, sauna, hot yoga at least a week.
Not to have water after 7pm after the jab as it could cause water retention.
Guys, you're right. :D
I should not have yakult at 9pm and Ice milo at 12am.
Water retention is real. But it's no biggies. 
 I'm on my 3rd day now and my water retention is subsiding. :D
So.. stay tune as i will be updating ma new face in the next post.
XOXO!
 Check out that glow on my cheek!
  Me and my happy heart. Thank you Dr.Wong for your expertise.
No bruises. Only two mini dots on the cheek that can be easily concealed.
