I had a fruitful sessions attending and celebrating Dr Benjamin Yim Clinical Aesthetics & Laser Centre 15th Anniversary event last Saturday at Hard Rock Café. I am also glad that my invited guests benefits from the session as well. Yee Hui, one of my invited guest had much better understanding on the aesthetics treatment through the sharing and explanation over the session.
Thanks Gotideas and Dr Benjamin Yim for organizing the event to educate us with better knowledge of aesthetics especially on botox and fillers. Light refreshments were served during the event while we can sit down and relax having a cup of hot tea listening to the talk.
I googled for clearer explanation of botox and fillers in case you need a general picture of it.
What is Botox and how does it work?
Botulinum toxin, is a natural, purified protein that is used to temporarily relax facial muscles that cause lines and wrinkles. It can also be used to treat medical conditions such as hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). Botox is the original and best-known brand name and the most tested product on the market. It is the result of many decades of studies and has been used extensively in medicine. It is the safest product, and it is certified in the medical and cosmetic field.

What are Fillers and how do they work?
As we age, the natural collagen and elastin in the skin lessens, as cells lose their ability to produce more of their youthful component. The skin becomes dryer, thinner and less able to fix itself. When we are born, we have plentiful amounts of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) in our body, but as we get older this store of HA diminishes, leaving the skin less well supported, and so lines and wrinkles develop. By lifting and smoothing targeted folds and wrinkles by adding subtle volume, dermal fillers can make a difference to a person’s appearance, giving them a fresher look.
The treatment of wrinkles with dermal filler will usually involve injecting this naturally occurring product (HA) through a tiny needle. The discomfort is minimal as the treatment does not take long to perform. The aesthetic outcomes of treatments with dermal filler are seen immediately after the treatment. Treating wrinkles with dermal filler is fast, leaving no scars. The Juvéderm range of fillers contains a variety of products, which can be used to treat different areas, from fine lines on more delicate parts of the face to deep skin depressions.

So, Dr Benjamin gave a general view of our aging process and the difference aging looks after botox and fillers. There is BEFORE & AFTER looks which gave us a clearer picture on how effectively the treatment can enhance the features and beauty of each looks. As every aging stage has its own concerns, Dr Benjamin provide us a better understanding on how the treatment helps or rather enhance the features of individual with the help of aesthetics. It is amazing how advance the technology nowadays and it can helps to slower the anti-aging process. Most importantly women can grow old gracefully.
We are also introduced with skincare makeup by Jane Iredale. It was created for sensitive skin and other skin ailments and dermatologists would recommend this to patients who just came out of surgery. The makeup artist was sharing that the products are pure minerals-no talc, preservatives, fd&c dyes or synthetic fragrances. We were given some of the products back to try. Can’t wait to give it a try!
Other than maintaining our appearance with the help of aesthetic treatments and make up, we need to build up our immune system and cleanse our body to keep our body healthy. Juice Up was one of the sponsors for the event and we were given a bottle each to try. 100% fresh, natural, unpasteurized and preservative-free cold pressed juices with no added sugar. The cold pressing technique ensures that there is maximum retention of vitamins and minerals in juices as oxidation is minimized when juices are extracted from fruits and vegetables. There are incredible hulk series (vegetable based green juices), glow series, fruit frenzy series and immunity series.
We were also pampered with desserts by Bakeafuss. Perfectly a sweet ending towards the end of the event. I am one of the lucky ones to win some prizes through the session. Can’t wait to try the MLD Facial soon!
