CARS - CANBERRA - Auto Italia Canberra 2016 - I won the "Best Lamborghini" Award presented by the Italian Cars Association of ACT - What a great surprise!!!

Lora Christelle Lim attending Auto Italia Canberra 2016

Auto Italia Canberra 2016 is an annual event where beautiful cars, motorbikes and scooters are displayed to the public and event attendees. Supercars enthusiasts like myself always make it a point to drive down to Canberra for this exclusive event. It is an annual grand affair where many stunning collection of Lamborghini, Ferrari, Maserati, Alfa Romeo, Fiat etc. are proudly displayed to the spectators who are in awe.

Last year, we drove our Ferrari down to Canberra. So this year, we drove our yellow Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder down and to our pleasant surprise, our car won the "Best Lamborghini" award and the trophy was presented to us by Tony from the Italian Cars Association of ACT. I really love the glass trophy and was glad that we did sent our Lamborghini for special car detailing at Peter Ciampa's car garage. 


"BEST LAMBORGHINI" AWARD

Every year during our visit to Canberra, we also receive special invitation to the Italian Embassy to meet the Italian Ambassador - His Excellency Mr Pier Zazo Francesco for drinks. This year, it was great to meet up everyone at the Italian Embassy and I enjoyed playing with the Ambassador's children and cute little King Charles Cavalier dog.

Overall, it was such a great event that I highly recommend all car enthusiasts to attend. It is definitely a Supercar event not to be missed! Do make travel plans to visit CANBERRA, ACT, Australia :)

 XEOMIN for V-Shape Jaw Line


EHA CLINIC
Doctor Elias Tam
Address: 1 Scotts Road, Shaw Centre, #15-01, Singapore 228208
Phone: 65 6235-3325

EHA Clinic - Doctor Elias Tam is well-known for Hair Transplant Treatments. They also provide Botox, Thermage, IPL, Radio Frequency, Lipokit, Aqua ST, Hydrafacial, Ulthera, Zeltiq, etc.


Doctor Elias Tam

One of the 16 Vice Presidents of International College of Surgeons. 
Committee member of Society of Men's Health of Singapore. 
Dr. Elias Tam is the founder and residing doctor at the EHA Clinic. 



EHA CLINIC SINGAPORE - Walking into EHA Clinic is always really exciting for me because I know I will walk out from the clinic fresh and youthful again. Every visit to the clinic works like magic! I just got back from 3 months of travelling non stop to London, Spain and Australia, and I have not got the time to pamper myself with some beauty treatments. My skin and face is in need of a rejuvenation and refreshing makeover!


GREATER BEAUTY, GREATER CONFIDENCE - With Doctor Elias Tam, I know I will have a shortcut in looking good in just a few minutes. That's how "lunch time aesthetics came about isn't it? Just drop by his clinic for 15-30 minutes and you can walk out feeling more confident of yourself. I always feel good when I know I look a lot younger and fresher after every visit. Many friends always complimented how youthful looking I am despite my age all thanks to the great work of Dr Elias Tam.


This time round I did XEOMIN. This is me, with the numbing cream, to make sure that I will not feel any pain from the injection. I am really afraid of pain. I would not be able to take any pain for nuts. But thankfully, Doctor Tam is really gentle. I think he does it so often that he just simply knows how to distract you from the needles and carry out each procedure carefully so his patients will not feel the least uncomfortable. 


PAINLESS, EFFECTIVE AND FAST TREATMENT - Thanks to the numbing cream and Dr Elias Tam skills, I felt no pain and was able to take lots of pictures even when the injections are being carried out. The injection was done in less than 2 minutes! How convenient is that? It is no wonder that many women have been visiting aesthetic clinics to have their youthful appearance restored!

AESTHETICS AND BEAUTY - Every girl, lady and woman wants to be beautiful. Whether it is for self-confidence or to attract the opposite sex, it is human nature to be attracted to beautiful things. Nobody is born with perfect physical features but thanks to advances in aesthetic medicine, every man and woman can now achieve better results and improve their physical appearance. After hearing many friends raving and great recommendations about Dr Elias Tam, I decided to visit him. The first time I visited Dr Elias Tam at EHA Clinic a while ago, I was very satisfied with the results, quality and high level of warm and friendly customer service from all the clinic staff. Dr Elias Tam is very knowledgeable about aesthetic medicine and all the latest knowledge and technology related to this field. He was able to explain to me and remove my doubts and I trust that I was in his good hands. I was very happy with the results of my treatments. 

I am also very proud to be one of the first to use XEOMIN in Singapore. I must honestly say that Dr Elias Tam is a very skilled aesthetic doctor and his treatments are very reasonably priced and affordable in Singapore. He is an aesthetic doctor that I trust entirely to carry out treatments for me. Read about my eye fillers I did with Dr Elias Tam and see the amazing Before and After photos! For those who suffer from eye bags or sunken eyes, this is definitely the solution for your problems. After my treatment, I finally did not have to apply make-up concealer to hide my eye bags :)

What is XEOMIN®?

XEOMIN® is a prescription medication used in facial aesthetics to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar frown lines between the eyes (glabellar lines) in adults. XEOMIN® contains botulinum toxin type A, a protein purified from the bacterium Clostridium botulinumXEOMIN® is also sometimes referred to as incobotulinumtoxinA.

XEOMIN® in Aesthetics: How Does it Work?

When you squint or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing the skin to furrow and fold. These lines that occur due to facial mimics are referred to as dynamic lines. Over time, as your skin ages and loses some of its elasticity, these repeated contractions can cause persistent frown lines.
Botulinum toxin type A – the active ingredient in XEOMIN® – is used in facial aesthetic treatment to treat dynamic lines like glabellar frown lines. It acts on nerve endings in muscles to prevent muscle fibers from contracting. By reducing these contractions, XEOMIN® can temporarily reduce the frown lines on your forehead between your eyes.
1. Does not require refrigeration, hence it last longer and better.

2. XEOMIN will drive Botox prices down.

Xeomin and Botox work the same way to paralyze muscles and smooth wrinkles. They share the identical active ingredient - botulinum toxin A. The difference is that Botox has an accompanying protein, but xeomin is naked. In the skin, all of the protein detaches from Botox within 1 minute of injection so there is no reason why the effect of xeomin should differ from Botox. Xeomin has proven effective in clinical trials. It is approved in Europe and the US to diminish glabellar (between the eyebrow) wrinkles. I have had good results with it.

What is the difference between BOTOX and XEOMIN? 
Why would people choose XEOMIN over BOTOX now?

  • Xeomin does not have any additives, i.e. is a naked botulinium toxin, it has less risk of antibody formation.  This has the theoretic advantage of patients less likely to develop resistance to Xeomin.
  • Xeomin does not have to be refrigerated
  • Xeomin works essentially the same as Botox.  Same duration, amount of time, dosing, etc.  This familiarity makes it a much easier product for physicians and patients to adopt to.
  • Xeomin will drive the overall price of botox down.
  • Has been used in Germany for more than 3 years but product is very similar to Botox.

MEETING DOCTOR ELIAS TAM


From this photo, you can see that without make-up, I do have very dark and swollen eye rings or eye bags. Therefore, I really needed Dr Tam to help me look more beautiful by getting rid of them effectively.

Other important facts about Fillers
Facial Fillers Better Than Rhinoplasty?

Dermal fillers are injected just below the surface of the skin, filling in unwanted wrinkles and lines, and, adding definition to the lip border. Fillers minimize or eliminate the lines that appear between the nose and mouth when you smile.
Injectable dermal fillers restore volume and fullness to the skin reducing the appearance of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.
Fillers for the nose can be used to lift the nasal bridge, creating a sharper nose, without traditional invasive surgery. Fillers for the chin can be used to add shape and form to your chin. Most use this type of filler for a sharper looking chin, much in the form of a V shape.
There are many different fillers and can be classified according to the materials used or broadly divided according to their efficacy into:

(1) Temporary filler lasting 3 to 9 months. Examples include fillers which are made from hyaluronic acid (Stylage, Hyacorp, Visagel, Juvederm, Restylane).

(2) Semi-permanent fillers lasting a year to 18 months. For example, Radiesse (www.radiesse.com) made of calcium-based microsphere technology (Calcium Hydroxylapatite) to provide immediate volume restoration and stimulates the body to produce new collagen.

(3) Permanent fillers that last longer than 2 to 3 years. Aquamid (www.aquamid.com) is made of polyacrylamide and is injected much deeper subcutaneous layer. It is meant to correct deep folds.
With so many choices, each with its own pros & cons, you should have a good discussion with us before deciding on the appropriate fillers to give you the best possible result, it may get the same or even better results than rhinoplasty. Fillers for nose are considered a type of non-surgical rhinoplasty.
