One-stop aesthetics clinic at Raffles Place.
Hello from Japan!
As some of you may already know, my face is by default very round and I've been getting botulinum toxin (botox) treatment done at my jaw muscles for a few years now to create the much-desired v-shape jawline and a slimmer-looking face which looks much, much better in photos.
Case in point about original ROUND face shape.
This time round (pun intended), I visited the newly-opened Privé Vitale clinic at Raffles Place.
Conveniently located at Chevron House, this one-stop aesthetics clinic aims to provide clients in the CBD with effective and affordable treatments. Led by Dr. Karen Soh, Medical Director of Privé Clinic, all doctors undergo preceptorship with her and engage in constant training and personal hands-on lessons on the techniques and advancement of our technology. The doctor who did my treatment was very, very, VERY gentle and I felt very safe in her hands. I also didn't feel any pain at all beyond the quick needle prick (which was hardly noticeable to begin with cause they use super fine needles!)
One of the most popular cosmetic treatments in Singapore, Botox is the protein complex deriving from the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. It is administered in small concentrations via needle injections. The whole treatment process is safe, simple and fast.
It works by relaxing muscles under the skin. When injected, the botulinum toxin A inhibits the contraction of the muscle cells and thus making them less stiff. This in turn translates to a youthful appearance (reduced fine lines and wrinkles) or slimmer jawline by creating a V-shape jaw line.
Besides face slimming, Botox also helps with:
– Treating excessive sweating at the palms and underarms
– Treating Cervical dystonia that causes contractions of the neck and shoulder muscles
– Treating Uncontrollable blinking
– Correcting Misaligned eyes
– Smoothing the wrinkles on the face (removing the frown lines between eyebrows, crow’s feet and horizontal line across forehead)
Results are noticeable from 3rd day onwards after the treatment, and it takes 2 weeks to see maximum results. On average, the results can last for around 4 to 6 months. To maintain the results, it requires regular injections at certain intervals. For me, I get my botox treatments done once a year.
And the most important question, is Botox safe?
Prive Vitale uses Dysport, an internationally recognized brand that has been certified safe to use.
Having said that, not everyone is suitable to undergo the treatment. The doctors from Privé Vitale Clinic will definitely conduct professional assessment to identify if one has any skin concern or other related issues before administering treatment.
Besides botox, Prive Vitale also does Revlite Laser, CO2 Laser, Dermal Fillers, Medical Skin Peel and Gloskin Light Therapy. You can find out more here.
