My skin journey with PicoSure Laser at Halley Medical Aesthetics

It has been a few months since I am still struggling with my skin problems. My pore seems to get bigger and as part of my work, I have to wear makeup frequently, sometimes in long hours. I feel annoyed as my face used to be smooth when applying makeup, but now I can see the pores and some spots on my face.

I understand that with time, my skin problem will get better, but this is taking a longer time than I hope. My skin is not perfect and not as smooth as baby skin. I do have scars on my face but I can't wait any more to get rid of all these problems.

I visited Halley Medical Aesthetics and consulted with Dr.Donna Chow.  She is a friendly and easy-going doctor where I really feel comfortable sharing with her about the skin problems that I am facing. One of the concerns that I didn't mention earlier is my dark circle. My dark circle is really very bad despite the number of dark circle products I have used.

After looking at my skin problems, she suggested doing the PicoSure. Dr. Donna Chow also mentioned that this PicoSure Laser is not just for pigmentation, pore-tightening, acne scars but this laser also can target my dark circles. It has to be done continuously for a few sessions for greater results. I was wondering if this laser is worth doing?

She also explained to me that what is so special about this PicoSure Laser is the special lens called the Focus Lens. It has a little bit of honeycomb when you look through it which was what I really did. So, what does it do? It concentrates the energy which goes through one end into a hundred small little dots to achieve rejuvenation and collagen stimulation.

What is PicoSure Laser?

Unlike traditional laser that uses photothermal action, the PicoSure laser delivers laser energy only to target particles without burning the surrounding tissues. With less production of heat, tissue damage and discomfort are greatly reduced.

Downtime for patients is also reduced, thanks to its PressureWave technology that uses a unique wavelength of light (755nm) and a specialized lens to convert laser energy into gentle pressure. This pressure squeezes cells, activating the natural cell signaling processes that create new collagen and elastin to improve the skin texture and tighten the enlarged pores.

In addition to treating pigmentation and enlarged pores, the PicoSure laser is recommended for removing tattoos, skin toning and rejuvenation, and removal of fine lines and wrinkles.

After all the explanation and understanding from Dr. Donna Chow, I decided to go for the PicoSure laser and prepared myself for this laser.

Treatment Steps :

1. Firstly, they have to numb your face for around 10-15 mins.

2. After applying a cream, they will put a wrapper on your face to let the numbing cream absorb faster.

3. It's time for laser. These are the probes that the doctor use for the Laser as a full PicoSure Laser treatment has three passes or rounds. Each probe serves a different purpose. The first pass eliminates my spots, then the second rejuvenates my skin, and finally, the last one is to reduce my enlarged pores and improve skin texture through collagen stimulation.

4. It is recommended to wear the eye cover to protect your eyes from the laser light as it is really quite contrasting and bright. A big thank you to the assistant who was beside the doctor for putting the blower to keep my face cool from the heat. It really works!

5. The last part would be my eyes area hence they remove the eye cover. I really can feel the light is quite contrasting and it keeps shining to my eyes. I have prepared myself for it and no worries it's still manageable.

While doing the treatment, Dr. Donna Chow was constantly checking with me if I feel uncomfortable.

After the laser is completed, Dr. Donna Chow explained to me that the redness on my face will subside after a few hours, and I can return to my normal activities.

During the treatment, I felt the tingling sensation but it was just for a few seconds. You definitely will feel warm on your face but not to worry, they would put a cooling mask for you for around 20 mins to reduce the heat. My eyes area was a bit swollen because Dr.Donna Chow increased the wavelength of the laser light to treat my bad dark circles, but the other parts of my face were really fine.

After a few hours, my redness and swollen eyes got better. I even attended a wedding dinner which initially I thought I wouldn't be able to after the laser session. But, the downtime is really not as bad as I expected. Well, I didn't wear make up that night as it is not advisable after the laser treatment. I covered my face with tinted sunscreen so at least it still can cover the redness and protect my face from the light.

After this treatment, I would recommend people to go for PicoSure Laser to achieve youthful and pigmentation-free skin with a reduced downtime compared to other lasers. I would also be sharing more on my post-treatment result. Do catch up on my next blog!.

Affordable Home Fragrance [ Les Parfums De Farcent ]

I am always looking for a way to make my room and bathroom smell like a 5-stars hotel. I used to use an automatic-spray air freshener but it doesn't smell fresh enough and the heavy scents can be stifling.

Thank you to Sample Store for introducing the newly launched perfume type freshener, Les Parfums de Farcent (LPF) - perfumed sachets and perfumer diffuser. LPF products are IFRA certified, safe and made from high quality scented material.

My first impression was the packaging. It looks elegant and these fresheners smell as lovely as they look.

There are 3 different range of fragrances which developed by renowned European perfume house, these fragrances have really long-lasting effects.
- Star Magnolia
- Freesia & English Pear
- Sea Salt & Wood Sage

Perfumed Diffuser
These perfume diffusers are modern in their design. It can be used as a home decor while keeping odour at bay. The diffusers are made out of plants from Japan and have a very pleasant smell. Thus, it is a natural deodorizer the air, unlike the convention air freshener, mostly contains chemicals.

Each set comes with 6 PET reed sticks and lasts up to 4-8 weeks. You can adjust and control the aroma concentration by adding or subtracting the number of reed sticks to use. Personally, I like to use 3 - 4 sticks in one bottle to have a stronger smell.

I also put the perfume diffuser in my bathroom to eliminate the unpleasant smell that comes after settling my business, to make my bathroom smell as soothing as my room!

Perfumed Sheets
Packaged with a small form factor, these modern-looking perfumed sheets are perfect to take everywhere you go smell good. Your car, your wardrobe, and even your bags. As the perfumed sheets don't take up a lot of space, you can conveniently place it anywhere or everywhere to your heart content.

To hang it in your wardrobe or your car if you so desire, just inserting a ribbon or string through the hole conveniently located at the top of the sachet and you are good to go.

Review about each scent :
The Freesia & English Pear has the least spiciness of all other scents I have tried. It smells more natural, compared to Star Magnolia. Star Magnolia is sweeter and had a flowery smell to it. Sea Salt & wood is my top choice because of it’s “fresh” smells. It’s neither too sweet nor too strong and the woody scent makes my room feel calm and relaxing. Out of the 3 fragrances, I have tried, I love Sea Salt & Wood the most!

These perfumed diffusers and sachets are selling at a very affordable price. With just $12.90 for the bottle diffuser (120ml) and $5.90 for 3 sachets (10g), you can create a luxurious environment and fill your home with fragrance all day long.

Relove's Amino Acid Feminine Hygiene Wash

​Introducing the collaboration of WORLDiBUY and Sample store.
WORLDiBUY is a cross-border e-commerce platform from Taiwan. They are working with over 25 channels globally and ship to over 100 countries, allowing you to buy products from different parts of the world anytime, anywhere!

One of the products that I am going to review is Relove Amino Acid Feminine Hygiene Wash.
You can redeem a free sample and purchase it from Sample store via this link

It is important to keep our feminine hygiene and to be consistent in maintaining the cleanliness regardless of what age you are. Cleaning up our feminine area using a normal soap e.g body soap is not a good idea. It will cause irritation and affect the ph balance of our private area as it is more sensitive than other parts of our body. Hence, using the right feminine wash is also important.

Hot weather, stuffy and menstruation cycle would cause an infection on feminine areas if we don't take care of it. Moreover, none of us like a vagina odor. It is common to have some kind of scent in our private area. But it doesn't need to smell like a bed of roses.

About Relove Amino Acid Feminine Hygiene Wash

As a weak acid and amino acid cleansing gel, it keeps our feminine area moisturized. The natural lactic acid avoids the growth of bacteria such as candida albumin and streptococcus. The mint extract provides a cooling effect, specially created for Southeast Asian hot and stuffy climate whereas the Japanese persimmon extract helps to solve the vagina odor and make it feel refreshed every day.

Lather 2ml of the product with water and clean the feminine area thoroughly. Rinse it off with clean water.

I have been using it every day even when I am on my period. The cooling effect really makes my private area feel refreshed especially when during my period, I have to cover my private with pads for hours in this hot weather. I like the scent of this cleansing gel. It smells good and doesn't cause any irritation.

VitaRealm MyBeautyColour Drink

I am sure many of you have heard about beauty drinks in the market. Generally, when we choose skincare products, we would choose those that suit our needs; be it serum for firming, moisturizer for hydration or acne cream.

Today I am going to introduce beauty products that are meant to be drunk-VitaRealm Beauty Drinks.  Personally, I believe what we put in our stomach is as important as the product we put on our skin. Research has shown that taking collagen peptides in drinks improves skin hydration and reduces wrinkles.

There are 3 types of drinks representing different #beautycolors.
Each color has its own skin benefits and targets different skin problems.

Purple: Anti A.G.E Essence
Skin Concern: Thin and dry, sagging, wrinkles and fine lines
- It contains Youth Revival Complex which to fight sugar-induced skin aging
- Enhanced with Rose Extract which is a strong anti-oxidant.
- Strengthen skin cells and regenerate skin tissues which will help to fight aging signs such as wrinkles and fine lines.

Pink: Skin Perfecting Essence
Skin Concern: Sensitive, troubled skin, acne-prone, acne scars, enlarged pores
- It contains acerola cherry that helps to balance sebum production, revitalize our skin and promote a radiant glow.

Blue: Whitening Collagen
Skin Concern: Dull skin tone, dry skin, uneven skin tone, dark pigments
- It contains glutathione which not only helps to reduce skin pigmentation and dark spots but also aids in liver detoxification.
- It contains PhytoflORALV which inhibits melanin formation and helps absorbs UV rays.
- Reduce the impact of UV rays on our skin, thus resulted in a fairer and brighter skin tone.

Besides my sensitive skin, it has been nearly a month I've been troubled with imbalance sebum on my face. I have no idea why all of a sudden my cheeks have these small white dots and blemishes appearing. Probably I am too stress and affected by work. The white dots are not obvious enough, you might not be able to notice it unless it shines under the light. After checking with the doctor. I was told, those white dots are oil glands.

I am happy that I get to try VitaRealm Skin Perfecting Essence just in time while I am having skin problems and adding a Pink beauty color to my life. I like the cherry and refreshing taste to it. It smells good and the citric acid ingredient doesn't cause make my stomach any discomfort. I always drink it at the room temperature before I sleep at night.

Photos before
(the small white dots are not obvious in the picture, but you can spot the blemishes)

Photo After.
The oil glands still have but its getting better.

I have consumed 16 bottles and I have observed the oil glands on my face are clearing up. My skin feels hydrated, and the sebum is controlled. Even though it is not completely gone (which I don't expect it to be perfect just with 16 bottles), at least my skin's condition is getting better!

I will be having a giveaway on my Instagram story starting on 17th July. Do check it out.
See you there! Share with me your skin concerns and your #beautycolor

Helps to brighten skin, even out skin tone, lighten dark pigments
