Tudor Laurel x Melissa Jane Ferosha: LPG Endermologie

When I first mentioned to my peers and close friends that I was going on a slimming programme, everyone thought that I didn’t need it. But when I talked about my personal issues with certain problem areas such as my upper arms, tummy and thighs, most people could understand – especially those in the industry. If not to look better on camera, it’s for better health as well. My focus is to cut down on my body fat percentage, tone up, have a more svelte silhouette and lose some inches on the above-mentioned areas. Hence the solution is overall weight loss, but also external help in targeting stubborn fat that will take a long time to rid if we just take the natural route (with dieting and exercise). Everyone has insecurities and I have no qualms about revealing mine – I will usually not flaunt my arms or tummy because I feel that they’re not at their best form – but deep down I’m actually dying to show them off if I feel more confident about my body. I think it’s time to get serious and disciplined, and do something about this so that I can finally wear whatever I want, and feel great about it.

I was thrilled to embark on this journey to a shapelier and more beautiful figure with Tudor Laurel, a botanical day spa. Specifically, I took on 2 specialised treatments with them, the LPG Endermologie® and Dr Ice Body Contour (will share more about the latter in my 2nd post here). Made in France, LPG’s patented technology stimulates dormant cellular activity within our skin to fight all wrinkles, sagging skin, localised resistant fat, cellulite appearance, and more. 100% natural and painless, it provides visible results instantly with zero side effects. I was told it’s best for cellulite smoothing, fat reduction, firming of face and body (40 mins per session).

With Tudor Laurel’s help, I’m confident to see results, in addition to my personal commitment to dieting and a regular exercise routine for a full weight loss programme. It certainly makes the experience more enjoyable when I love the aesthetics of Tudor Laurel. Since I visit about 2x a week, it’s important to me that I feel relaxed and ‘at home’ when I go for my treatments. Like a luxe all-inclusive resort, the interiors are modern and tastefully furnished, from the lounge to the treatment rooms and even the bathroom facility.

Comfortable, rejuvenating, and embodying a resonating peace & quiet, it does feel like a sanctuary albeit being right in the middle of bustling Orchard/town area.

The LPG sessions have been a breeze. Every treatment requires me to don a white body suit to protect my skin. It feels like a massage on each specific area, and the strength of each ‘grip’ is totally customisable. The new body endermologie patent combines the best efficiency of its proprietary technologies for more intense and faster skin stimulation. Thanks to the Alliance Skin Identity sensor, the stimulation adapts precisely to my skin identity: the intensity of the treatment is hence optimised. However if further customisation is needed, this can be further adjusted. For example, since my tummy is more sensitive compared to arms/legs, the strength of stimulation can be adjusted lower so that it won’t hurt. So far, the LPG machine has been working on my arms, thighs and tummy to reactive dormant cellular activity. My therapists, Stella and Lily, have been the most professional in helping me with the treatments, taking great care to ensure that I’m comfortable and at ease during the 40mins sessions. Sometimes, I even fall asleep because it feels so relaxing on the treatment bed and welcoming atmosphere of the rooms.

LPG’s triple action in one single treatment: 1) Elimination of resistant and localized fat +70% 2) Smoothing of the orange peel aspect 3) Natural Redensification of the dermis. It’s been about 2 months since my first treatment and about 2 kg weight and a waistline loss has been recorded. My skin also feels firmer and less flabby at the targeted areas.

Stay tuned as I continue to document my journey in this space and on my IG @melissajaneferosha (check out my Tudor Laurel Highlights!) and update you guys with more results and details from the LPG Endermologie® treatments.

This is Life-Changing – OSIM’s New uLOVE 2 (4手天王): 4-Hand Massage Chair

Having reviewed the OSIM uLove massage chair before, I thought that was really the best massage chair I had ever sat on – yet. Thanks to OSIM, I had the privilege to also preview their new uLove 2 (4手天王) massage chair and that was really life-changing because they went ahead and enhanced the previous model in amazing ways! The unique point about the uLove 2 is its 4-Hand massage feature.

The epitome of massage indulgence and well-being

The luxurious 4-Hand Massage gives you double the pleasure and satisfaction. I’d say the experience is very close to a (good) massage by an actual masseuse or even better, because it is designed to deliver the sensation of 2 synchronized masseuses massaging your upper and lower body at the same time. A machine like that ambitiously aims to elevate the standards of full-body massage to the highest level. No time to go to a massage parlour? The uLove 2 is your next best option, and will likely exceed your expectations. Why?

OSIM wants us to indulge ourselves and experience 1st class.

At OSIM uSqueez Hand & Sabon’s station with Jaslyn & Jacintha

During the media preview, we were treated to two themed zones before the event even began, to highlight OSIM’s high perceptions & standards of health, wellness and pleasure. In the Lifestyle Zone, we enjoyed blissful hand spas/massages with beauty products from Sabon along with OSIM uSqueez Hand Hand Massager and experimented with scents (courtesy of Oo La Lab) to create our preferred fragrances. I had already felt so relaxed and ready for a massage after this.

Next, in the Experience Zone, I finally had a chance to sink into the much coveted OSIM uLove 2 massage chair! It had a majestic outlook with its sheer size, beautiful handpainted floral designs on its body and harmonious colours like a thoughtful masterpiece. The luxurious, quilted leatherette comes in a series of chic hues, perfectly complementing any contemporary living space.

To experience the uLove 2 in its full glory, OSIM had creatively set up a first-class flight experience onboard ‘OSIM Airlines’, complete with a check-in counter, boarding passes and a private VIP lounge with tantalizing treats from TWG.

They don’t actually have the airline facility of course, but their lavish preparations were to let us indulge in the luxurious features and vibes of the new massage chair. Each of us was assigned to our personal uLove 2, with the full attention of a ‘flight attendant’ to address all our needs, whims and fancies (thanks Cheryl for everything! ;)) We all settled into our chairs so comfortably – with super soft throws on our laps, feet in the chairs’ footrest massage unit, and mobile screens right in front of us to view the simulation process and efficacies of the uLove 2. Ready to take off to OSIM Paradise!

Astounding Features of the uLove 2

We were eased into complete relaxation, defenseless in the amazing uLove 2 – and I’m not exaggerating because I nearly fell asleep during the 10-15 min massage sessions. So what’s so special about the new massage chair?

4-Hand Massage 

The revolutionary 4-Hand Massage technology features 4 sets of powerful massage rollers that work synchronously to massage your upper and lower body concurrently. Hence you get double the relaxation, and double the effectiveness.

V-Hand™ with 720° Roller Balls 

Intelligent V-Hand™ Massage emulates the skilful techniques and flexibility of a masseuse’s hand for a realistic grip that extracts your deep-seated knots.

The 720° roller balls rotate 360° in both directions, rolling along every contour of your body to ensure the smoothest and most pleasurable massage.

Suite of 1st class massage programs

OSIM uLove 2’s Ambassador, Andy Lau on his throne, in utter bliss. Like him, I had stepped into a realm of total relaxation that enhanced my well-being when I was on the chair too, because after the event I had felt so much more rejuvenated and recharged, with the aches and tension previously in my body gone like the wind.

The uLove 2’s curated suite of auto massage programs are customized to rejuvenate your mind and body while catering to your diverse needs. Be it work, sports or lifestyle induced muscle ache and tension, there is a program catered to you and your family.

Suite of Massage Programs – for work, sports or lifestyle needs
uLove 2 Signature:  The best of uLove 2 maximizes cutting-edge technologies of V-Hand™ and 4-Hand Massage for a satisfying whole body massage.

Head & Neck
Neck & Shoulders (yas!)
Lumbar & Butt (this too!)
Butt & Thighs

Luxurious massage pleasures from head-to-toe

Referring to image above:

1. Power squeeze, vibration and rollers on calves, ankles and feet.
2. Tension relief massage for thighs and hips.
3. Revitalizing massage for hands and palms.
4. 4-Hand Massage on back & butt.
5. Intense airbag massage for arms.
6. Soothing warmth on back.
7. V-Hand™ Massage for head, neck & shoulders.

More unique features of the uLove 2

3D Surround Sound for an intimate Entertainment Chamber

Another feature I love about the uLove 2 is its new and improved 3D Surround Sound speakers that boast a well-balanced and articulate audio augmented by a powerful bass that I could actually feel. Because music is so important to me in the relaxation process, this feature is a big bonus to me, to be able to enjoy quality music that envelops me while being massaged, in a beautiful symphonic blend.

Am really craving for a full-fledged body massage in the uLove 2 right now as I’m typing this, just imagining a more invigorated body relieved of fatigues and aches is a huge push towards getting this awesome chair for myself – thinking of where to put it in my house?

Nestling comfortably & luxuriously in a chair fit for a Heavenly King like Andy Lau.

The OSIM uLove 2 (4手天王) Massage Chair is now available at all OSIM Outlets, Roadshows &

Thanks for hosting us at your exclusive media preview and for the first-class uLove 2 experience, OSIM!

A Better Florist: The Flower Shop That Made a Boom ❁

There are hundreds of florists in Singapore, because we Singaporeans love flowers just as much as any other person on the planet even though there is so little nature around here on our little red dot. Flowers are my favourite things in the world…they are simply the staple tokens of appreciation and serve as gifts that are appropriate for just about any occasion.

So I’ve heard, A Better Florist team came together, with something else in mind, that didn’t just involve crafting simple flower bouquets. They included their customers and clients in mind, to set up their philosophy that guides their business. They are one of the rare few, if not the only florist, that differs in almost every aspect.

For starters, their flower designs look like they came straight from movie scenes. They are so intricate and modern; you’d hardly believe they were crafted for us, mere mortals! ? But all jokes aside, they have a true flair for making their bouquets look luxurious and breathtaking.

In their offering comes so much more than just bouquets and arrangements. Their entire bloom crew  works hard to be able to bring uniqueness to our sunny island, through their pamper bundles, get well soon hampers, creative fruit baskets, unusual wedding flowers and so much more.

I love their cute packaging, as you get the option to have your blooms wrapped up in a chic burlap wrap, tied with a ribbon, or in a mason jar – that’s very trendy right now!

Looking for an reliable flower delivery service in Singapore? One of the things that I found most appealing is their delivery. They offer the same day delivery, within only 90 minutes. No matter where you are in Singapore, A Better Florist keeps their promises, and this is thanks to their numerous locations throughout Singapore. That way, when they receive your orders, the nearest florist to the delivery location can jump on the task and deliver your blooms fast.

And A Better Florist’s operations don’t just happen in Singapore. They’ve expanded their business and have a presence in both Dubai and Hong Kong. If you’re travelling to these places, you don’t have to say goodbye to one of the best florists in Singapore. EatwithJess says that A Better Florist is one of the 10 Best Flower Delivery Services in Hong Kong; MamaKnowsDubai agrees – for Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

All of their shops are equally dedicated to maintaining the quality of the designs and the delivery, so that they remain one of the best flower deliveries in Singapore. A Better Florist offers a fast Valentine’s Day Flower Delivery in Singapore, and so does Hong Kong. And because they have an awesome rose delivery Singapore has experienced, so does Dubai. Every single flower shop has to maintain the same standards.

Whether you’re looking for the best flower delivery in Hong Kong or in Singapore, you can’t ignore A Better Florist’s services. Try it for yourself to experience its great service and beautiful blooms!

Personally, I think that all of these factors make them the best florist in Singapore, and definitely one of the top flower shops in our country 🙂

OSIM uStiletto – For all Ladies who love their Heels!

We know it so well. It’s a love-hate relationship with our heels. Yes, the higher the better, especially when we are all dressed up in our prettiest dresses and gowns. Heels complete our outfits and make us feel taller, more confident and beautiful (especially when I’m so petite!). I’m so addicted to heels that I wear them literally everyday. Sounds pretty insane, I know, because some ladies I know only wear them on special occasions like weddings, to events and important meetings. But heels are the staple in my shoes wardrobe and rarely do you see me in flats.

The downside to my shoes addiction is that it can be so challenging to walk around in heels all day because they cause so much stress and pains to my legs and feet. The wrong pair can even give you sores and blisters – I recall that I had to prepare packets of plasters before leaving the house when I was going to wear certain pairs of heels – they are so pretty but give me lots of agony especially after more than a couple of hours in them.

I can never give up on heels completely, so I turned to alternatives like wedges and platforms, which still gave me the height but they put less pressure on the toes and balls of my feet. Still, I feel like a nice leg massage when I get home will be the perfect activity for me to unwind and completely relax! I never have enough of foot massages/reflexology and they do wonders to soothe the fatigue and aches away from my calves and feet ?

 OSIM’s understands the woes of ladies who love their heels –  after all, give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world! But to resolve the aftermath of it all, the new uStiletto has the answer.


I was one of the privileged ladies to be invited to OSIM uStiletto’s exclusive launch experience, where we had the opportunity to step into the #PerfectStiletto for more beautiful legs.

Pre-event cocktails 

The set-up of the event was gorgeous, romantic and feminine, and we were delighted by the beautiful fairy lights and balloon decor, stiletto-themed dessert table and line-up of exciting activities in the evening ahead of us.

Can’t get enough snaps of this pretty dessert table!

The OSIM uStiletto comes in 3 designs – Elegant, Kawaii and Homemaker, for ladies with different lifestyles and personalities. Guess which is my favourite??

If you’ve watched my videos for OSIM, Elegant totally stole my heart because of its sophisticated design and motifs of vibrant red heels! Perfect for an independent, career woman like myself ?

You can tell how excited the ladies felt when we were introduced to the new uStiletto. Not only is it super lightweight (many of us could lift the machine with one arm), we were amazed by its pampering features and the personalised massage experience it can offer.

With my dearest Chloe and the Elegant uStiletto!

OSIM also arranged a Watercolour Pencil Workshop, hosted by “Artclaytion”, during the event. Using Faber Castell art materials, we learnt basic techniques of watercolouring with pencils and tried to create our best colouring on lovely flower drawings!

That uStiletto heel though! ??

Kind of therapeutic to be working through the colouring ✍ No wonder adult colouring books have been trending!

With the talented and adorable Clayrene, presenting our completed art work! ?

uStiletto Watercolour Painting Contest (15-21 May)


There is an OSIM campaign happening right now, when YOU can WIN a new uStiletto (worth $599) while helping me to vote! I would totally love a customised #PerfectStiletto of my dreams! 

Vote for my specially hand-painted design (below) by clicking on the LIKE button in the original post by 21 May, 11pm!

The top 2 voted designs will also be customised into a pair of stilettos! I WANT!!! ???

Voters of the top 2 designs stand a chance to bring home a brand new OSIM uStiletto Leg massager! The 2 lucky winners will be announced on OSIM’s Facebook Page on 25 May.

Go go go!  Good luck!

After the watercolour painting workshop, my favourite part of the event came, when we finally get to sink our tired legs into the uStilettos! But first, some aromatic TWG tea to unwind…

Feeling completely at home being pampered by the uStiletto ??

With the rest of the ladies after our leg massages. The host did a quick poll and all of us felt much lighter on our feet. I also thought my heels felt a little looser and more comfortable, somehow. Isn’t that amazing?! I think we have all become fans of the uStiletto!

Kudos to OSIM for organising such a fun-filled and lively event, and honoured to be one of the first in Singapore to experience the uStiletto – designed and tailored for heel addicts like myself!

Check out the event video below for an insight to the experience we enjoyed at the media launch!

I also had the chance to review the uStiletto in the comfort of my own home, where I’m most relaxed and in need of good, long massages to unwind. At night, it serves as pre-bedtime beauty relaxation with the ‘sleep’ massage program.

Chilling out in the full deal – loungewear, neck pillow, music, and of course, the uStiletto!

Given the versatile nature of the design and portability, you can really take it anywhere (living area, bedroom, study etc) and place it in various positions, for your maximum enjoyment.

The Elegant uStiletto looks sophisticated and exquisite with its feminine design . The front, exterior surface feels extremely smooth to the touch, and the intricate nail art details are done with hydrographics, or water transfer printing technology.

 To me, the uStiletto can be the secret for beauty and confidence – an easy and hassle-free way to achieve healthy and beautiful legs, around the clock!

Early-risers can use the uStiletto for a ‘gradual awakening’ with its “Pamper” massage program…gently awaken your legs to welcome the start of a brand new day!

After a long day of work, in heels, indulge in uStiletto’s “Relief” massage program to reduce the tension and stress accumulated on your legs and ankles. One of my fav, the “Beauty” program, helps to tone and shape my legs to restore its vitality and glamour. This is achieved with its S-Tone Airbags, which are strategically positioned to massage my ankles, soles and calves separately.

 At night, I had tried the ‘Sleep’ massage program to unwind my mind and body just before bedtime. If I’m game for something stronger, ‘Reflexology’ gives a firmer massage in terms of stimulating vital reflex points (via S-Care Rollers) to enhance circulation.

Overall, I love the uStiletto for its various thoughtful features and comfortable massages it provides, to relief aches, sores and tension away from my legs and feet after being in heels for long hours. Almost everything is customisable according to personal preference, from the intensity of the airbags, to the rollers’ speed. There is also soothing warmth if you wish to have it on, to soothe muscle ache and boost the curative effects of a pampering leg massage.

If you’re concerned about hygiene, the inner fabric lining of the “socks” of the machine can be removed and washed. And guess what? There are zips on the expandable socks to accommodate calves of various sizes, for best fit and maximum comfort.

Because I’m such a petite girl, it’ll be a nightmare to move heavy objects by myself as I won’t be able to cope. But, the uStiletto is so light (only 6.6kg~) and portable that I can move it around the house easily, and use it in the bedroom/living room/study etc.

And here’s my personal review of the OSIM uStiletto…in full glory (video)!

Review: Celevenus Wellness & Aesthetic Clinic

I’m not unfamiliar with aesthetics, having tried botox, fillers and different types of facial rejuvenation treatments and medispas. Unlike plastic surgery, which literally involves going under the knife, aesthetic procedures are often much less painful, with little or no downtime. The results are also less drastic, more natural and subtle. Being in this (media) industry, where looks does matter, the temptation to enhance/improve our appearance is great and honestly, a little help from aesthetic clinics goes a long way. I think I never looked this good, thanks to little enhancements and treatments to reverse the effects of aging, stress, and late nights.

I’ve been introduced to Celevenus by a friend and she has recommended the clinic after personally experiencing its excellent services. Led by Dr Dylan Chau, Celevenus offers innovative face and body treatments that are non-invasive and results oriented. I was impressed by its chic and urban-modern interiors, and professionalism of Celevenus’ team, who readily serve walk-in customers, attend to enquiries and made all guests at ease.

With so many aesthetic clinics out there, why Celevenus? I had actually heard about Dr Chau’s skills and expertise, especially the signature Sculptra treatment, which is a non-surgical facelift that corrects facial wrinkles, folds and lost volume caused by aging through collagen stimulation. I was also particularly interested in the PDO Thread Lift, which is a revolutionary anti-wrinkle facelift and skin tightening procedure that has been widely performed by clinics in Korea, and has gained much popularity in Japan and other parts of Asia. After looking through reviews by other bloggers and some online research, I had a strong interest in trying out V Lifting, especially for my nose.


Image credits to aesthetics hub.

I wanted to do this, particularly with Dr Chau, who has over 11 years of experience in the medical aesthetic field, and he is known for his diligence and commitment in pursuing the latest developments and innovations in aesthetics.

After a consultation with Dr Chau to discuss the procedures I would like to undergo, also taking into consideration his advice and suggestions, we proceeded with the Hiko Nose Thread LiftSquare Jaw reduction with Dysport and Sculptra. The overall look I want to achieve is to have sharper, more “3D” features, a smaller, V-shaped face and to lift certain areas of the face and reduce fine lines.

 Sculptra: The Liquid FaceLift That Is Natural Looking & Long Lasting


A quick description of what Sculptra is –

“Facial volume can be traditionally replaced with fillers. The latest trend, however, is to achieve global facial volume replacement with Sculptra, through natural collagen stimulation with l-poly-lactic acid. Sculptra, known as ‘the liquid facelift’, would substantially increase the collagen of your skin to correct the folds, wrinkles and skin laxity as a consequence of aging. The result looks and feels natural. Sculptra is FDA approved for treating nasolabial folds and facial wrinkles, its smoothing effect can potentially last for up to 25 months depending upon the initial severity of the facial wrinkle and fold contour deficiency.”

Sculptra is a signature treatment of Dr Chau’s at Celevenus. He is a the trainer of Sculptra, with 9 years of hands-on experience in the this procedure. He is one of the pioneers in Sculptra ever since its launch in Singapore. Dr Chau is also a Key Opinion Leader (KOL) for Sculptra in the medical aesthetic industry.

Sculptra is suitable for:

Deep folds between the nose and the mouth (nasolabial folds) also called smile lines

The lines framing your mouth (marionette lines)

– Sunken & droopy cheeks

Sunken temples

Eye bags & dark eye circles caused by sunken tear troughs

– Skin laxity

The above with underlines are the areas which I hope to target. Although the problems are not severe, it helps to address them earlier so that they will not aggravate. My main concerns are especially the sunken undereyes/dark circles and smile lines. I also noticed that marionette lines have started to form in recent months, so I was eager to get rid of them with Sculptra to attain a fresher and more youthful-looking face.

Putting some numbing cream before my Sculptra procedure!

Light makeup at Celevenus, check out the awfully thick nose bridge and bulbous nose tip I had then ?

Sculptra has been injected into the respective sites. As mentioned earlier, the smile lines, marionette lines and under the eyes. He also did some magic at my temples (which I never knew was a little sunken). Gotta trust Dr Chau’s expertise on this! ?

In my state of nervousness I also managed to observe that both Dr Chau and the assisting nurse had eased me into the procedure by chatting with me (as a way of distraction), preparing me for the jabs, and even tapping on my arm so that I will not focus my thoughts on the injections into my face. Well, it all works!

Dr Chau massaged the areas where Sculptra has been introduced for a more “even distribution” of the injected material.

Some patients may experience injection site pain, redness, bruising, bleeding, itching, or swelling. Other side effects may include the delayed development of non-visible, small bumps under the skin sometimes noticeable when pressing on the treated area. For me, there was bruising and swelling over the next few days after the treatment, to about a week. As an aftercare, I had diligently massaged the treated areas for 5 minutes 3 times a day for 5 days after treatment. The bruising subsided completely after about a week and everything was back to normal after that.

Sculptra takes at least 6 to 8 weeks after the 2nd session to have visible results and sometimes it takes a 3rd session to see optimum results (if there is a need for 3rd session). So far, I have done 2 sessions and the 2nd one gave me no bruising at all as perhaps my skin has gotten used to the procedure.


A fuller, more youthful and lifted face after Sculptra.


[After pic] was taken in early January 2017, a couple of weeks after my 2nd Sculptra session.

Hiko Nose Thread Lift


PDO Thread Lift is an anti-wrinkle facelift and skin tightening procedure that has been very popular in Korea due to its safe, fast and effective results. You can achieve the most sought after ‘V-shaped’ face or a natural looking nose lift with this treatment.

Dr Chau is one of the pioneer physicians for PDO Thread Lift procedure in Singapore. He is a trainer and key opinion leader in PDO Thread Lifting in Singapore and many parts of the world. He constantly updates himself in the technologies and skills from other master level practitioners and industry professionals. He has also tapped on his experience to co-develop the latest PDO threads with Korean counterparts. Who else to trust with this treatment but Dr Chau? ?

I’ve always thought the “weakest link” on my face is my nose. I have a very low nose bridge and a bulbous nose tip, such that it has a curved look, especially from my side profile. I was never proud of my nose, and longed for a higher, straighter and more photogenic nose like the Caucasians.

Ultra V-Lift has been truly a God-send for me because fillers could no longer give me the nose I wanted, even though I had relied on them for a couple of years. Pictured above, you will see that fillers gave me the height of a nose bridge, but it also looked thick and broad, with quite a bulbous nose tip. You may also refer to other pictures above (Sculptra procedure), which were taken before I did the Hiko Nose Thread Lift.

My nose looked extra large for my face and strong at the bridge, and it really wasn’t the most flattering.

The fillers had to go in order for me to try Hiko, so I had a session with Dr Chau to remove them first, wait for about a week for the fillers to completely dissolve, before going for a brand new nose!

The feeling is like a balloon bursting and what’s inside just oozes out ? So “jelly”, literally! ?

So Dr Chau kept squeezing the fillers out, as much as he could, as way of removal. I felt a little helpless but as you can tell, a little amused at how my nose bridge was disappearing, just like the fillers.

Draining every bit of fillers (there was a lot) out and injecting hyaluronidase to “melt” the rest which cannot be physically removed.

I was so excited to get my nose done! I was back about a week later, and had my numbing cream applied before the procedure. Could you sense the anticipation I was going through? ?

So this is my original nose with zero fillers – see the curvature of the bridge instead of a straight one?

Selfie while waiting for Dr Chau…with barely a nose bridge to speak of ? Time to say bye to this and welcome a splendid new nose ???

The versatile PDO threads are used to heighten the nose bridge, giving it a natural elevated look. The latest PDO threads can even be used to enhance your nose tip. This is something that cannot be done with dermal filler injection (tends to move/migrate, gives an unnatural look over time as the fillers absorb water etc). The result is a more natural looking, structured nose than the traditional method of dermal fillers. It also lasts longer – 1 to 2 years depending on individuals’ conditions.

There was no pain or downtime for me somehow, perhaps my nose is used to being injected. ??

The obvious difference before and after Hiko Nose Thread Lift! Instantly, the threads gave my nose height, volume and that straight, narrow bridge I always wanted! This wasn’t the final result, it will take awhile for the threads to settle and slight swelling to dissipate.

The PDO threads can also be used with minimal amount of fillers at strategic sites on the nose for optimum results – Dr Chau used this combination of procedures for me. It worked like a charm! Just check out my latest pictures ?


Love the shape of my nose! It looks so natural too, perfect for my face omg it’s like a customised nose! THANK YOU DR CHAU! ? No downtime at all, no pain, minimal swelling, and I could go out with just a little touch up on my nose to cover the redness from the injections. What a life (and face) saver! ??

 Square Jaw reduction with Dysport

To contribute towards a more ideal face shape – smaller/sharper jawline, more V-shaped, Dr Chau also helped me with square jaw reduction with Dysport, a type of botox.

Dysport is a botulinum toxin Type A, commonly used to reduce wrinkle appearance. It works by relaxing the jaw muscles so that with less exercising, these muscles will shrink and hence lead to smaller jawline. You can expect a slimmer lower face in 1 month’s time after injection. For best results, separate the treatment into 4 sessions in the first year, followed by just 1 session yearly for maintenance.

Similar to the other treatments I had experienced, the pain level is quite low and the whole procedure is over in a jiffy. No wonder one can be so addicted to aesthetic treatments! ☺

With a combination of these treatments that I’ve done at Celevenus with Dr Chau, I am really pleased to say that I have never looked better in my life. My face shape has never been so ideal and my features more pronounced – if you have been following me on social media, you’ll be able to witness a subtle difference (read: improvement) in my looks over the years, especially in recent months. I feel so much more confident in front of the camera now, with friends and fellow influencers at events commenting that my face looks smaller and more V-shaped…some even thought that I lost weight! One word: WOW. So happy! Thank you Celevenus for making me look and feel more beautiful! ??

 Here’s a summary of the procedures I did at Celevenus:

– Ultra V Lift (Hiko Nose Thread Lift): to heighten the nose bridge, giving it a natural elevated look
– Square Jaw Reduction with Dysport (botox): to shrink the size of my facial muscles for a shapelier face
– Sculptra: to plump up sunken tear trough/zygomatic area, reduce the appearance of dark eye circles/wrinkles, lift/remove my nasolabial folds and marionette lines

I would strongly recommend Celevenus Wellness & Aesthetic Clinic if you wish to transform your look with premium cosmetic treatments. They offer clients an extensive range of the latest cosmetic technologies and professional treatments (for face, skin, body) administered by some of the foremost aesthetic doctors in the region.
