Recently, I tried a non-surgical Facial Contouring Treatment called V-SCULPT by EPW Laser + Aesthetics Clinic, that helped me to achieve a less chubby set of cheeks and a more chiselled jaw line. There was no downtime or risks, normally associated with conventional facial surgery. This non-surgical treatment involves volumizing and refining areas of the face through the use of Fillers and Muscle Relaxers. Results are seen instantly with no swelling, bleeding or downtime in most cases.

TOTAL COSTS in Singapore Dollars (SGD$)
My V-SCULPT Program cost SGD$3000 in total, with the use of almost 2 syringes of JUVÉDERM® Voluma at SGD$2000 and Jawline Botox at SGD$1000. 
(Note: Prices will vary according to individual requirements.)

P.S: It did not hurt, it felt like an ant bite. 

I was treated by Dr Melvin Tan, a good looking doctor, with more than 5 years of experience in the aesthetic industry. First, he asked me, what and where my concerned areas are, before recommending, what he thought was suitable for me.

For the Botox procedure, as part of EPW's V-Sculpt, I was treated professionally again from the moment I arrived until I exited the clinic.  I felt Dr Tan explained the procedure well to me, and once I was in the treatment room and prepared for the procedure, the right areas were marked for the Botox injections. My threshold for pain is rather good, so the entire procedure was comfortable enough. It takes about two weeks to see the full results.

My Concern Area: Chubby Cheeks 

As you can see from the BEFORE pictures below - I have slightly chubby cheeks.

V-SCULPT Face Contouring Program

Personal Note: I'm very happy with my results as it is very natural. A lot of friends have been asking me, if I've lost weight, as my face looks slimmer and more chiselled. It looked so natural that no one knew that I did non-surgical fillers or botox. 

Your face will not be worst if you stop Botox, it just returns back to your ordinary facial lines.

This program is for individuals who would like to have more well-balanced and proportional facial features. It is deal for patients who have recessed chin or inadequate chin projection, which can be corrected safely and effectively with a non-surgical chin or jaw line augmentation. This program is suitable for any individual who desire to look better aesthetically, without any downtime associated with conventional facial surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is Botox Treatment?
A: Botox is a natural, purified protein that relaxes wrinkle causing muscles, creating a rejuvenated appearance.

Q: Will I still be able to make facial expressions?
A: It will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look like "you had work done".

Q: How long does Botox treatment last?
A: The effect can last up to 4 months before the lines slowly begin to return. If you have repeated Botox treatments, the effect tends to last longer.

Q: Does Botox treatment cause more wrinkles to form?
A: Botox helps to relax the facial muscles that cause expression lines, it does not cause more wrinkles to form, if you choose not to continue with Botox treatments, your muscles will eventually return to the normal activity and your wrinkles will gradually revert to their pre-treatment levels.

A: Within 3 days, but it may take up to 7 days to see the full results.

Q: Are there any side effects?
A: Possible side effects includes headache, pain, burning sensation, swelling, redness, itching, etc. I only had a slight jab redness on the needle spot. 

Epiderma Skincare Products
Available at EPW Laser + Medical Aesthetics Clinic

I am currently using a few skincare products from Epiderma. Epiderma products are made in USA, Switzerland, Japan, etc. The effective Epiderma skincare products I have been using include: 

1. Dermawash: I use this to cleanse my face after using my makeup removal. It is specially designed for normal to oily skin. It is a yellow colour gel like solution that cleanses my skin. It smells really refreshing. 

2. Dermatone: Next I use a greenish solution to tone my skin. It is to restore my skin's natural acid balance. I really like this toner, as it is hassle-free, it is made into a spray for easy application. I do not need to use a cotton pad to apply this toner on my skin.

3. Dermaclear Ultra Gel: This advanced skin brightening clear gel formula contains Alpha-Arbutin, Vitamin C and botanical extracts to brighten and clarify uneven skin tones and prevent oxidative damages to the skin, making it look luminous. 

4. Derma-A Forte (Retinol Serum): This is an oil-free yellow serum that designed to reduce the signs of ageing. It helps to rejuvenate, restore skin health, improves the appearance of skin, and reduce the appearance of pores, promoting a smoother, healthier, radiant looking skin. 
P.S: This is my favourite Epiderma product.  

5. Sunscreen (SPF 30): This broad spectrum UV protector is designed for sensitive skin and does not contain parabens or chemical sun filters. It contains licorice extracts which has anti-inflammatory properties. It may replace the use of make up, as it is naturally tinted. Hence, it helps to improve clogged pores from the use of make up. Epiderma has a range of different coloured sunscreens for different skin tones, so it looks very natural.
