One word to describe my fillers experience with Dr Lim from Trinity Medical Centre.
I was a training subject back in November 2014 last year.
Why did I decide to do fillers?
Many of my friends have a certain type of misconception about fillers (thinking that only people who aged need to do fillers) and were not very supportive of my decision.
However, I know at the back of my mind that fillers will help me GREATLY with plumping up my irregular skin surface.
I have a history of popping my pimples and visiting those neighbourhood facial aunties (who practice damn hardcore squeezing) to treat my acne problem (as aesthetic clinic was not as well-sorted then) which cause me to have deep scarring on my face which ultimately led to the "dents" on my cheeks as well.
In addition, my skin condition (up till today) falls on the normal-to-oily category and it aggravates me further to use excessive skin drying acne treating skin care range which also led me to having nasolabial folds too.
As my skin starts to decrease in density and elasticity over the years (which reflects SIGNIFICANTLY on my face especially my cheeks), filler is one of my "solution" to return, add, shape and define my features.
My thin lips are also one of my "sian" features.
I can't give you a solid explanation on why I chose to do fillers on my lips as well BUT I'm glad I did it because my lips look MUCH FULLER (not to the point of looking like Angelina Jolie but it's strangely sexy) and the best part is I don't have to pout my lips while taking pictures! LOL!
What fillers did Dr Lim used?
Restylane is the brand of the filler that Dr Lim chose to use on me.
There many types of Restylane, but Dr Lim uses Restylane Perlane on my cheeks and Restylane Vital Light on my lips.
True to be told, I can't give you the best answer whether Restylane last longer BUT I can assure you that it's SAFE.
Firstly, a numbing cream is applied and then Dr Lim will subsequently inject the fillers into my dermis at different depths depending on the type used.
It really doesn’t hurt at all.
I admittedly have a fairly high pain threshold but the injections feel similar to a needle prick.
Although there’s some “weirdness” while the cannula is being manipulated under the skin but I really only feel this around the mouth area
Here are some #selfie that I've taken 7 days after my fillers:
The price still depends on what results you want to achieve.
Let's all work together to look better and feel better!
