Hi guys, I know I have moved from blogspot.com, But isn’t that a great start? I decided to give wordpress a shot, but hey, not because it reminds me of J! Hahaha.
So, in case you haven’t heard, being the vainpot that I am (do you honestly believe this statement), I dropped by Aeon Medical and Aesthetic Center for a look!
Background story: I went to the airline interview of my dreams (as like many other people’s dreams) and the interviewer at skin check round politely told me she has to reject me because I have open pores and acne scars.
I mean come on, they place this ridiculously large spotlight on the floor that shines up at your face. Even if your make up is as thick as Assault cuirass + shivas + meka + frost shield, YOU CAN’T ESCAPE YOUR FATE. so yeah I got rejected. For those whom are close to me, you guys’d know that I suffered a relapse of extremely bad break-out which escalated when I got my job as a cabin crew in one of the LCCs due to the make-up, stress and jet lag etc. So all the acne has subsided now thanks to the fact that I am back on the killer pill, isotretenoin.
For those of you with acne, fret not. It’s not the end of the world, and it will go away. I totally know how you feel. I hated when people stared at me like I am some kind of cockroach. And especially my ex colleagues from the airline, going all “OMG, WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR FACE” that kind of thing. U know, i know. and guess what? Don’t hate yourself for it. Go to a clinic, or go to skin center (as I did) and follow the skin care regime that they give you. Avoid too much fried food, and avoid balachan. (the asian chilli paste) You can still eat them, just cut down on it. Drink a fuck load of water every day and always use sunblock. ALWAYS! if you feel your sunblock is sticky and ur skin can’t breathe, change your sunblock. I recommend this one:
Clarins UV PLUS HP Spf 40 +++
It feels lightweight upon touch, and it is quickly absorbed into the skin. Anyway the one I am holding now is the tester as I got a couple of the testers for free when I purchased the actual product. hehehe. Remember to buy sunblocks with the +++ , cannot kiamsiap and get the +, or ++. MUST BE +++. if you can find one +++++++++ even better. Im kidding. HAHAHAHA but really. +++.
and also, buy the natural spring water spray can, the small one and just spray your face with it when you are out. But use tissue to gently wipe off any sweat, oil or grease before doing so. Do this periodically if you are out for a long day. I use the Avene one!
Fun fact from, me la of course (HAHAHA): If you have rash or kena bitten by mosquito, you can spray this miracle water on the affected area and it will really feel better. I swear, bro. You can also spray it on after doing your make up to set your make up in place.
So, end of my very long and naggy story;
I am lucky enough to have a sponsored treatment so as to nurse my skin and transform it into the baby smooth skin that is the object of envy amongst women. I found this Aeon clinic through peiling’s blog from Agneselle, I’m sure many of you know who she is.
My first appointment was to go through a skin analysis, where you just have to let this machine capture photos of your face and it will then tell you what composite does your skin have. So i’ll skip that shit since many famous bloggers have already done so in great details. So anyway, the friendly doctor speaks immaculate English and is extremely polite and soft spoken. After analysis, he helped me to determine the best solution to help me achieve the flawless look I want within the stipulated time frame that I gave. 3 months!
Current problem I face:
Acne has resided and under control due to oral medicine, however, scars are seen on forehead, sides of brows and lower cheeks.
Unsightly holes and open pores are very obvious under light (thats why i failed the interview!) and can’t be perfectly concealed even with make up. The holes are made by a terrible beautician when I was younger and the holes will NEVER RECOVER! Take note of this so please, please exercise caution when you sign those facial packages next time.
My given solution:
Laser gold toning, 5 sessions, 1000$ (after discount!)
Calming facial, 5 sessions, 1000$ (to be paired after the gold toning)
The above mentioned is to help reduce the redness from the acne scars. This will take about 1.5 months.
Then comes the other laser which is ViVa i think, not very sure as I need to wait until the 5 sessions are finished.
estimated cost: 1.2k.
This is to finally, smoothen out the holes and open pores by setting my face on fire… really. It will be a painful process, but it will ensure that my face has no, or lesser holes. 🙂
Laser Gold toning, session 1!
Me without make up before the treatment. I brushed this up alittle cuz my face looks black. holy fuck.
A cup of tea, and a magazine, overlooking Scotts Square.
Notice the magazine! The clinic and the friendly doctor is featured on HerWorld. He sat next to me on the couch and talked about, random stuffs. Everyone in the clinic is really friendly and I didn’t feel the least bit awkward. Hehehe.
I did not take the photos of me doing the laser because I am #foreveralone and thus had no one to help me take the photos. Anyway you’d feel a prickly sensation on your problem areas if you have sensitive skin like me but that’s about it. The calming facial was so calming that I fell into a deep slumber and woke up with my bladder about to burst.
Drinking the tea after the facial. (with my bladder still at full capacity)
But really this tea is fucking cute please just take a moment to appreciate this:
Cute teaset with overly adorable tea bag.
Here are some sibei ugly and graphic photos of my face, please do not scream. These are taken after the treatment and after I FUCKING RELEASED ALL THAT GLORIOUS GOLDEN SHOWER INTO THE TOILET BOWL.
note the scars on my cheeks
Front view, can’t see anything here cuz the lighting in this toilet is good. LOL
So as you can see, I look ok if you look at me from the front. So next time you see me, you know where to stand right? HAHAHAHA.
This is the end of my gold toning session 1, I have one due two weeks later. Remember to hit the follow if you want to know my progress and if you enjoy reading my nonsense. I will really appreciate it! 😀
