Part 1 : Regaining A Youthful Appearance At Kaiteki Skin Aesthetic Clinic SS2.

There's a Chinese saying that goes, "There are no ugly women, only lazy ones". I, for one, believe that practicing a bit of self-care would make a huge difference when it comes to self confidence. Be it through an upgrade in sense of style, a proper beauty or skincare routine, a touch of enhancement here and there goes a long way.

As I went pass my 30s, I realized that I should and want to take better care of myself,.

Thus, there're a couple of notable changes in my facial features that I wanted to minimally correct, one of it being my slightly sunken forehead. Mind you, having a nice, volumized forehead actually reduces years off one's appearance.

And I did just that, at Kaiteki Skin Aesthetic Clinic located in The Hub, SS2. Kaiteki has 4 other locations within the Klang Valley and 1 in Johor. Full details at the end of this writeup.

Stepping into the Kaiteki, the clinic's environment was very cozy, spacious, comfortable and parking spots were aplenty. It was an ease getting to my appointment.

Dr. Xiao Chien was my care doctor that day. She was knowlegeable, took time to explain the type of treatments and alternatives available, addressing all my key concerns in just one consultation. 

In the end, I decided with a bit of botox on my forehead area, to temporarily relax muscle movements, followed by a filler treatment, to volumize the area.

It is also worthy to note that aesthetic treatments like these are not permanent and temporary in nature, wearing off in about 1 year, with proper care. It is also not meant to give dramatic changes, but merely minimal enhancements.

In order to achieve an optimum and longer lasting results, I was advised to split my treatment into 2 sessions. 

This is Part 1 of a 2 part series.

#1 Session : Botox Treatment

A small amount of Botox (Botulinum Toxin Type A) was injected onto my forehead lines, glabella (the area in between my eyebrows) and crows feet, to temporarily relax the muscle movements before my filler treatment. It took only about 30 minutes to complete the session. Optimum results can be seen after 10-14 days and can lasts for about 4-6 months with proper care.

It was a very simple and quick session performed by Dr. Xiao Chien, assisted by her friendly assistants. In that regard, she was very gentle and precise, I felt little to no pain at all. Before I know it, I stepped out of the clinic in a little over 30 minutes.  

There was no downtime whatsoever, meaning I was free to do whatever I want; go whereever I wish, almost immediately after the treatment. Fantastic - because clearly, I do not have the liberty to stay home and rest for long periods of time. 

In the next 4-5 days, I experienced a bit of redness and swelling on my forehead area, as expected (mind you, I have super sensitive skin). Having said that, I was very lucky that there were no bruising marks on the injection points, meaning Dr Xiao Chien did a very skillful job in the process. I was given a bruising gel to take home just in case.

Fast Forward 2 weeks later, I went for a follow-up session. Here're some of the before-after pictures.
