Beautifying Myself with Dr Matthew Yap
by Wlliam | 20 Nov 2016
I'm glad to beautify myself again with Dr Matthew Yap. What made me decide to come back again is because the process is painless, fast and simply no downtime to it. Plus Dr Matthew is experienced and I felt comfortable having my treatment with him from my previous sessions.
This is me having my consultation with Dr Matthew Yap before the treatment. It is very important to understand what you will be doing and be clear of the procedure. Let Dr Matthew Yap know if you have any other concern, he will recommend the best treatment to help you achieve what you want.
Ok let's start!!! As usual, the clinic usually start with cleansing your face before the treatment.
Applying numbing cream on my face. I was then told to rest for about 10-15 minutes for the numbing effect to take place.
I was recommended to do the 2 lasers, Medlite C6 with carbon and CoolTouch Pore Toning Laser afterwhich I also underwent Red Light therapy. These all help with oil control and tightening of the pores, to give me smoother and clearer skin.

The clinic uses Juvederm for my fillers, a trusted brand that is often used in Singapore. This is what's inside the box. I called this the Syringe of Magic because it does wonders to my face.
Dr Matthew injected the Juvederm filler to my nose bridge area and a bit to my chin, resulting in a slimmer, sharper and more defined look overall. After the filler procedure, you are able to instantly see the results of the fillers through the mirror.
Next for the botulinum toxin treatment, the clinic uses Botox (another trusted brand used in Singapore), there are other brands in the markets like Dysport that are also commonly used. It was a swift process and I did not feel any pain. The Botox treatment will take about two weeks to a month to take effect and reduce the muscle size.
