7 Things You Need To Know Before An Under Eyes Injectable Filler

30 Apr

Under Eyes Filler

Many women complain about their under-eye hollows (tear trough). It makes them look tired and weary even when they are not! And the hollowness is very unlikely to be covered by make up and concealer due to the volume loss caused by aging.

Good news is, it can be fixed by injectable fillers. The filler will “fill” the area to restore volume and rejuvenate your under-eye and upper cheek.

So before opting for an under eye hollow (tear troughs) injectable filler, here are the 7 things you would want to know:

1. How does it work?

Tear troughs are formed gradually due to loss of bone or thinning of the tissue superficially i.e.  muscle, fat, skin as we age. So by injecting the filler, it helps in “filling up” the volume loss and make one look fresher and younger.

2. Does it hurt?

I would say it is well tolerated even without numbing cream as the filler used here (refer to Q5) contains lidocaine. A combination of techniques is used to reduce discomfort.

3. How long will the effect last?

Generally 3-12months depends on type of filler used, individual own body metabolism and post injection care.

4. Why need a experienced certified doctor to do it?

Eye area is a delicate area and injection under the eye required very skilled injection. A skilled doctor not just reduce the side effects and complication, also make the filler effect looks natural without bumps or unevenness.

5. The brand of the filler?

Restylane. It is the best filler to treat these hollows, which can deliver immediate results. And if the results is undesirable, hyaluronidase can be injected into the area to dissolve the Restylane away.

6. Any side effects or down time?

It is a ‘lunch break procedure’, meaning that the down time is very minimal. Slight swollen and redness will be noted after injection but usually wean off quickly. Sometimes bruises may happen. Infection and blood vessel blockage are rare under trained doctor’s hand.

7. Any precautions after the treatment?

Avoid alcohol, blood thinner medicine or supplement, garlic and make sure no cold sore at facial region. Avoid heat, sun, sauna and exercises.

I hope that by now you have more understandings about the under eyes (tear troughs) injectable filler and how it work in making eyes look bright and smart 🙂
Actually I have been thinking about getting this procedure done long time ago, but was really worried about the procedure and wonder if it is “safe” to do so. We have been hearing a lot of horror story about aesthetic surgery fail. Therefore after doing research and consultation, I have decided to go for my first filler treatment at TOX AND FIL MEDICAL AESTHETIC (during lunch break!).

Doctor carefully cleaned the under eyes area to prep it for the injection.
You can actually see from the picture that my tear trough problem was quite serious.

Numbing cream was applied to reduce the discomfort during the procedure.

After about 20 minutes, the injection procedure began.
I must admitted that I was very nervous to a point that I did not even dare to move a bit.
It didn’t really hurt though 🙂

The result is instant!
I went back to work straight after the procedure 🙂
My eyes were swollen a bit on the first day, and it subsided the next day.
Below is a before and after picture I took one day after the procedure.
You can see that it greatly improves the under-eye hollows problem!

My Favourite Japan Beauty Product [Saborino Morning Mask]

6 Mar

おはよう~

Good morning!

This morning I am sharing about a unique product I have found:

MORNING MASK!

image

What is Saborino morning mask?

It is a product specially designed to be used in the morning. This product has 3 major functions:

Cleansing

Tightening

Moisturising

Provide a perfect base for makeup

Sounds too good? Hehe… initially I really doubt anyone will use facial mask in the morning, SERIOUSLY, WHO GOT TIME? However, when I started using it for a week, I realized that it actually saves me some time!

image

HOW I USE IT?

  1. Open up the flip cap and take out one sheet.
  2. Stretch the mask gently to fit to the face. If I didn’t stretch a bit, the holes for the eyes are a little bit too close to each other. So with a little stretching, it can fit the face perfectly.
  3. Smooth it out.
  4. Then I will start getting dress and style my hair, which takes about 10 minutes.
  5. Time to remove the mask.
  6. Gently wipe it around the face and neck to “cleanse” it.
  7. Start applying make up.

By doing like this, I have cut down the time for cleansing and skipped my skin care routine 🙂

image

The key ingredients in the mask includes, apple fruit acid, peppermint extract, cucumber extract, tea tree leaf oil, grapefruit leaf oil, collagen, orange oil, avocado extract and honey. Therefore it is really minty, cooling and refreshing when I use it first thing in the morning.

image

Things I like about it?

  1. It certainly does SAVE time.
  2. It “plumps” up the skin and tightening.
  3. The makeup stays better throughout the day.

image

I really enjoy this innovative product and hope you will find it useful too.

My Favourite Japan Beauty Product [KOSÉ CLEAR TURN Eye Mask]

1 Mar

こんにちは!

Today I am going to share about one of my favourite Japan beauty product:

KOSÉ CLEAR TURN Eye Mask

image

The mask is designed for fine wrinkles due to dryness. It comes in 32 sets of crescent shape masks in a packet, providing targeted areas such as under eyes and around the mouth where fine wrinkles from dryness are particularly concerning.

image

This product has skin plumping effect. It contains retinol derivatives that converts into retinol inside the body by enzyme where it has its effects, such as, controlling skin regeneration, stimulating collagen and elastine production.

It also contains collagen, hyaluronic acid, elastine, astaxanthin, natural moisturizing factors and glycerin.

SO I DEDUCE THE MAJOR EFFECT OF THIS PRODUCT IS TO

HYDRATE THE SKIN! 

image

It comes in a small resealable packet like this.

image

As you can see I have used up half of the packet!

Sometimes, I put it on my nose too! The cresent shape makes a perfect fit to the curve of the nose 🙂

image

It has a yellowish tinge and each piece is folded when it’s in the packet.

image

So you need to carefully unfold it and apply on your skin.

image

Yupe, it’s BARELY visible!

 

So I use it liberally after shower without worrying that my mask might scare my children (or husband) off. LOL~

image

The material is made of a pure, anti-irritant sheet from the downy hair around the cotton seed, which fibers are fine and soft, and fits well below the eyes. Efficient in delivering beauty serum.

image

Unlike those deeply moisturizing mask, these partial eye masks dries up pretty quickly (10 minutes). After peeling it off, I can really feel a different!

SKIN IS MOISTURIZED!

image

That’s why they say if you feed your skin enough water, the wrinkles will go away 🙂

If you are looking for that one heroic eye mask that may solve your eye beauty problems, I would definitely to suggest this No.1 selling eye mask in Japan 🙂

Thank you so much for reading. If you like this review and would like me to do more of it, please comment and let me know okay?

职业妈妈也能轻松驾驭的时尚美甲【酷炫粉红施华洛奇水晶凝胶】

13 Aug

Millionmars Prisca De Nails

一天晚上哄大宝和小宝睡着以后,自己独自坐在床边把一家大小已洗好的衣服分类然后放进各别的衣橱里。我看着自己的手指,然后脑里浮出一个问题:

有多久没有好好爱护自己了?

记得还没有怀孕以前,我也是个美甲控(就是很疯狂热爱美甲的意思)。几乎每两周就会还一次指甲的颜色、美化装饰,而且每逢佳节、喜庆或受邀出席活动时,更是会悉心配搭服饰颜色风格来设计自己的指甲。想起来,像是好久以前的事了,突然有一种恍如隔世的悲伤。

现在带着两个小孩,白天要工作,下班回到家需要照料家中大小事(如煮饭做家务等…),每天能够有足够的睡眠已经是一种幸福,怎么还会有时间和精力去好好保养自己,更不用说是这看似没有实际用途的美甲了。可美甲对我来说,是一种艺术,一种通过改变指尖形象,带来时尚效果并能让人的心情也随之改变的一种艺术。于是,我又有了重拾美甲爱好的念头。

我接着上网搜集一些资料,然后以自身的喜好和需求列出了一下几点:

  1. 一定要做凝胶美甲。因为效果更为持久,做完又可以直接方便自在的做事,不用等指甲油完全干(传统指甲油的话大约需4小时才会完全干)。而且也不怕指甲油脱落以后会掉进给宝宝准备的食物中。既使是洗刷的工作也不会有影响(当然还是不建议浸泡在水里太久了啦。)
  2. 我一定要很多很多的bling~ 原因是,我一直对会闪闪发亮的东西情有独钟(女人嘛~)。身为人妻和成为母亲以后,我一直不敢忽略自己的岗位。因为那推动摇篮的手就是推动世界的手。女人用她的双手创造了家庭的和谐,也用指尖努力的为所爱的人刻画出一道道璀璨绚丽的风景。所以拥有闪耀的指尖也是非常具代表性的…*嘻嘻*
  3. 指甲的长度不能过长。我要能够打字,按得到触屏电话,可以帮宝宝扣纽扣,而且方便做家务。所以我并没有做Gels Extension,使用原本的指甲长度大约是比指尖长出2-3毫米左右。
  4. 圆形。我其实更喜欢方圆形的,因为整体面积较大,可以做更多造型和装饰。但是方圆形还是会有利角,容易造成抓伤,尤其帮宝宝洗澡时我不想刮伤她们。所以选择了圆形。圆形除了让手指看起来修长之外,也具有不易断裂的优点。

做好功课以后和美甲师的沟通变得更简单快捷。

我的预约是在星期天的下午,不用上班,而且是宝宝午睡的时间,所以感觉特别轻松愉快。美甲师看了我想要的设计以后,拿出了一盒施华洛奇水晶,比划着盒子里大大小小不同形状的水晶,给了我一些建议和叙述她的做法。其实很多美甲师应该会选择较简单的做法,就是使用较小的水钻(因为附着力较强)、又或者是用凝胶整个覆盖贴上去的水晶,这样既简单又不会有容易脱落的问题。(但是较小的水钻无法达到我想要的bling bling的效果,用凝胶整个覆盖的话水钻就不会闪闪发亮了。)Prisca De Nails的Joan却大胆的使用了大颗的水钻,而且还复合使用不同形状的水钻以达到奢华精致的效果,手工极为精细。

结果做了3小时的美甲,做好后我的心情也跟着闪闪发亮了!

(这只热情又温驯的猫猫是CATS Cafe JB的驻店宠物。我和老公去喝咖啡,猫猫自然又亲切的招呼我们。所以老公就帮我们拍了好多美美的照片,这几张是水晶指甲的特写。如果你也喜欢猫猫的话,可以到CATS Cafe JB逛逛,保证让你有个疗愈又暖心的下午呢~)

约一个星期过去了,我的酷炫粉红施华洛奇水晶凝胶美甲依然如新。这让我联想到,只要愿意花点心思,职业妈妈也可以(在不影响家庭的情况下)拥有追求自己生活喜好的权利,就好像我一直想要一套bling bling美甲的愿望一样…

谁能想到在这小小的一平方公分里,隐藏着的是美甲师和指甲的女主人对艺术和生活的一种体现。

你又有多久没有好好爱护自己了呢?

如果你也和我一样,想要一套美美的指甲的话,听好了,只要预约的时候说MILLIONMARS或是出示这篇文章就能获得20%的折扣!*

*(除了Gel Extension以外)

美甲艺术是一种发挥创意和表达自己的方式,就让我们由指尖开始享受当女人的乐趣吧!
