I feel more confident in my bare skin and putting on less or no make-up lately. Thanks to the Clarify peel and Clarity laser toning done by Dr Kim at Aeon Medical and Aesthetics Clinic and thank you Oppa for the recommendation to this clinic !
You know , taking “Selfies” are the “IN” thing right now and i do it almost everyday and anywhere as and when i like it. I would rather take selfies than to have someone to take a picture for me because i know my best angle. And we all like the angle where there is no “double chin” , big eyes , sharp noses and a V-shaped jawline.
There are many selfies poses which you can do to create a V-shaped or slim jawline by using with your fingers. Like placing them on your jawline or resting your chin on your palm. It is really funny how i always take like more than 10 pictures of selfies with Oppa but ended up deleting all even though he looks good in the pic because i look bad.
But he is so nice to be on standby because he knows that i will take as many as i like until i am satisfied. Like what he always tell me ” Women are always looking into the mirror and say that they look ugly but Men are always looking into the mirror thinking that they look handsome “. Omg…he has a huge sense of humor. Can’t believe a cold and cool Busan man can break the “coldness” with such humor. I was laughing really out loud when he said that while looking into the mirror and waxing his hair. Can you imagine that scenario ?
I did not put on any make up in the picture above. Skin looks good and smooth <3 ! The best angle is tilting your head 45 degrees.
We all know about the jaw reduction surgery where the jaw bones were shaved or screwed to create a permanent and smaller jawline. But the surgery is very very very painful and dangerous though very popular in South Korea. But thanks to the invention of Botox , we are able to reduce our jawlines via Botox injection without going through the pain.
The first thing that came into most people’s mind when they heard the word Botox is that you gonna smile and look like a “robot”. Even my Oppa was a little skeptical because he was afraid that i will look like a “Robot 녀 “( robot-nyo is a term used on a Korean lady who had several surgery done to her face such that she looks like a robot ). That was my first impression too until i was told how it actually works. After consulting Dr Kim , jaw line reduction Botox actually helps to relax the protruding muscles on our jaws to create a slim jawline. It does not not harden the muscles . It relaxes your muscles. Bite down your teeth and feel the lump of muscles on your jaw with your fingers ? Yes that part where Botox will be injected into. This procedure is also for those people who grind their teeth when they sleep due to overactive jaw muscles (masseter muscles). But I also learned it is not for everyone because some people’s square jaws are not due to the muscles but the bone shape. These people I am told will not benefit as much.
I went to Aeon Medical and Aesthetics Clinic to get botox done by Dr Kim to reduce my jawline.
Let’s see how is it done !
Beautiful morning and waiting at the private area for Dr Kim to discuss on the botox to be done on my jawline. Sipping my cuppa hot tea and feeling relaxed.
Dr Kim was really patient and explained to me that there are many kinds of Botox solutions but only 2 are approved to be used in Singapore. Below is one of them which will be used to inject into my jaw muscles. I asked alot of questions before the Botox injection because i want to clear my doubts and Dr Kim is very professional and patient.
There are different needles used for Botox. The bigger they are , the more painful it will be. Dr Kim uses the thinnest one for the Botox injection. Here is a picture below for you to compare the thickness of the needles used. Pain level for this botox injection is just 1/10.
Dr Kim examined my jaw muscles once in the treatment room before we proceeded with the Botox injection. Dr Kim marked out area where he will inject the Botox on my jawline for precision
I had no make-up on that day. Try not to put on any make up when you come for aesthetics treatment or Botox injections. If you are self-conscious , you can put on a cap or sunglass. There is a powder room at Aeon where you can put your make up after treatment. No make up and my skin looks dewy and “bling bling” after Clarity peel and laser toning.
Jina (Clinic Manager) used the Korean cooling massager to cool and numb the area where Botox will be injected. This helps to minimize the injection pain. She is such a sweet and gentle lady.
Here is how the massager looks like.
You can store the cartridge in the refrigerator to chill it and take it out when you need to use it.
I was also given 2 of this rubber thingy to hold onto during the Botox injection. It helps to reduce the anxiety because some people can get a little bit anxious when they closed their eyes or getting injections.
Botox injection starts. 시작합니다. Korean music was played on their pink music player to help you to relax and reduce your anxiety.
Dr Kim was injecting Botox on my right jawline and Jina was at the other side tapping on my temple gently to help to distract my attention away from the injection. This method really helps alot. I was quite amazed by it. It really calmed me down alot because i am someone who is afraid of injections and needles. I tend to get sweaty palms whenever i go for injections but this time was not that bad. I felt really calm throughout the whole process. Amazing isn’t it ?
I had about 5 injections done on my right because the muscle on my right side is bigger and 4 on my left side. I tend to chew food on my right side often.
The botox session is painless and no down time. You can resume your activity and meals after Botox. No swelling or bruising, and the slight redness (mainly from cold massage) goes away in within thirty minutes.
I will be going for review in 2-3 weeks’ time to see the results and if there is any need for more injection (“top-up”) .i can see the results of the Botox after 2-3 weeks. Shall post a picture after 2 weeks.
The effect from the first Botox injection you had will last you about 3 months and if you get the next injection before all the effects wear off, after about the 3rd injection, the effect will last you longer (depends on individual but about 6-8 months). But try to avoid chewing on hard candy or too much meat so that the effect can last even longer. The whole experience has this genuine K-feel where a patient feels relax, at ease and minimize discomfort during treatments and post treatment service and care where you can sit down and enjoy some refreshments.
I even made appointment to get my Korean eyelash extensions done by Esther at Aeon the end of the month. This shows how i love it and having friends who work there makes me feel comfortable and trust the service even more. Dr Kim’s professionalism makes his patients feel assured and comfortable before proceeding to the treatments.
You can mention my name when you head down to the clinic. Staffs at Aeon are all Koreans but they speak English and Korean so don’t be alarmed if you were greeted in Korean. You can look for Clara (Clinic coordinator) or Jina (Clinic Manager).
