LUSH AESTHETICS BROKE US UP!

SORRY! I have to caps the title because I HATE MY FATS and I am glad I can get rid of them without exercising and dieting. HAHA! Pun intended. lol. BYE BYE FATS…. I want to break up with you.

Back to a few weeks back, I was screaming and jumping from excitement when I saw the invitation email from Lush Aesthetics! Thank you Gavin for this opportunity! 😀

Lush Aesthetics is an award winning Aesthetic Centre who are winners of Top 100 Singapore Excellence Award 2013/2014 and Promising SME 500 2014! Lush Aesthetics is located conveniently in the heart of Orchard.

Lush Aesthetics offers many beauty treatments such as teeth whitening, Fat Freezing, Lasers treatments and etc.

I promptly replied to Gavin’s email that I want to do Fat Freezing!!! LOL. Basically my body has countless problematic areas, arms, thighs, tummy, love handles…. :'( (I have a lot a lot a lot of Fat. If only they are money) The most problematic part is ARMS. I am sure if I diet and exercise more, the rest of the body parts will definitely be skinnier but arms….. so so so difficult!

Please bear with me as I shared about what is FAT FREEZE with you.

With over thousands of fat freezing treatments performed to date, Lush Aesthetic is one of the market leaders for fat freezing!

fat-freezing-process-web

Fat Freezing is the latest and most effective non-surgical alternative to liposuction. It uses vacuum suction with cooling plates at controlled temperatures to freeze fat cells to death which will be flushed out by our body’s immune system. The plates are pressed against the selected body area for about an hour with minimal to no discomfort. The area is cooled to a temperature that kills fat cells while leaving other tissues (skin, blood vessels and nerves) unharmed.It can be performed on tummy, love handles, arms, thighs, back, calves, buttocks etc.

Fat Freezing uses this science to destroy fatty tissue while putting the body’s metabolism to work. Research has shown that cold temperatures can reduce the thickness of the fat layer without having any adverse effects on other types of cells. The body then naturally digests and our immune system will then remove the dead fat cells, and within a few weeks the patient is enjoying her new body contour.

Step #1: Cooling membrane sheet to protect your skin

20140611_122052

Step 2: FAT FREEZE with the suction to freeze the fats!!!!! I don’t really feel the coldness and haha… i was actually sweating halfway through the treatment!

20140611_122104(1)

A reminder is to keep moving your hand during the 30 minutes treatment. The arms is the most sensitive part so it is essential to keep moving to ensure blood flow. Each hand will go through a 30 minutes treatment. Other body fats needs 1 hour!

Even though Eve, the operations manager warned me that my last two fingers may feel totally numb during the 30 minutes, and some people have to stop at 20 minutes. LOL, my last finger felt totally numb around 15 minutes but can still move and I was quite in shock that I pressed the bell twice during the 1st treatment screaming for help. MUHAHAHAHA!! Both Eve and the beauty therapist came in twice to ensure me that it is perfectly normal and I can continue the treatment. 😛  Thank you ladies for your assurance and small chat to make me feel comfortable!!

For the other hand, they came in to check on me around 15 minutes

Due to private and confidential, I am not able to show you the machine. But it sure looks very high technology, with the timing and Degree Celsius all shown to you.

Basically there is nothing much for me to do during the treatment. I just changed into the clothes, hold my phone with the other hand not doing treatment and still texting my friends tell them, “I am breaking up with my fatssssss”. I also played Candy Crush. lol

20140611_125508

So after 1 hour Fat Freeze treatment for my fatty arms, this is what I saw for the treatment part. lol. Very red!!!

20140611_132553

I do not feel that it is painful and it is totally normal that you’ll see redness, but some people may have blue black and it differs for individual. I brought a cardigan along with me so that people will not judge my red rectangle arms. lol. The redness is still there after 2 days but faded on day 3.

20140616_230922(1)

The redness is totally gone after just 5 days! My t-shirt around my arm feels looser already~ Will share with you when the treatment works it’s magic on week 8! Thank you Lush Aesthetics!! 😀

Fat Freezing improves body contour through the application of cooling plates on desired areas. The plates are pressed against the selected body area for about an hour with minimal to no discomfort. The area is cooled to a temperature that kills fat cells while leaving other tissues (skin, blood vessels and nerves) unharmed.

P1140340 P1140343

KIYORA’S TAKE: Lighting may not be exact in two photos but I do notice that my skin looks lighter and moisturized. With Q10, my skin also feels tighter and more Q~~  My skin also feels softer and smoother when I touch my skin. 😛 Also, the serum is so overflowing that I can use the remaining on my neck, hands, arms, legs and the mask is still wet!

KIYORA’S TAKE: The gel cream is also a generous amount as like the essence from the mask. Even though my skin already feels hydrated and smooth after the mask, my skin can enjoy twice the nourishment by applying the lotion afterward!

One thing I like about 2 step mask is it’ll be awesome if I bring it overseas! You know how your skin and body will not be used when you are overseas so it’ll solve this problem. Aloe vera is also known to calm and soothe skin!

LOL, my dark eye ring is like …. horrible. I need to urgently salvage my eyes.

Professor Hong shared with us the reason of using machine for skin check, as photos taken from online have many factors such as lighting, angle, size of photo that can affect the result of using products.

洪博士跟我們分享為甚麼要用儀器來做皮膚檢測,因為網路照片有很多影響因素導致不客觀的照片。

P1050861

P1050865

The skin check machine that I used is VISIA that can check many skin problems and let you know which products to use to improve your skin.

I don’t really mind if people see my skin without makeup… i bet most of the people i know saw me without makeup before. As well as you can see my naked face photos in my blog(no edit)~~~ plus my makeup is not that heavy so there isn’t much difference I will say. I wish that I am so confident that I do not need to put on makeup when I go out. I think this is basic courtesy in my case. lol. Too bad I am not the kind of natural beauty who looks freaking good without makeup~~

啊哈哈~~~ 其實素顏對我來說沒差。。。。。。。 不是因為自信而是,幹嘛介意別人怎麼看我!雖然我還是覺得化妝很重要!這是對自己跟別人的尊重!我也希望我自信好到我甚麼都不用化就可以出門~可是我並不是天生麗質型!嗚嗚~~

Second Generation of EXTREMELY OFF-HEADS SERUM pH5.5!!! I saw the huge poster outside Xi Men Ding Watsons when I was in Taipei in August. I went in to ask for it and it was out of stock!!! Thank you NEOGENCE for this!! <3
P1090423

Contains a unique pore purifying formula which will clean and remove acne. Together with complex acid to dissolve acne and witch hazel extract as a form of astringent, this serum will double up to control oil and control sebum excretion.

Main ingredients used in this serum will be Glycacid, Mandelic Acid, AC. Net, Evermat and Watch Hazel Leaf Extract. This special combination of fruit acid will penetrate deep into pores to ‘soften and dissolve’ imperfections like dead skin cells, acne, pimples and clogged pores. At the same time, it will help to reduce sebum production, improve skin’s texture and close up pores.

I am using it daily now on my nose and chin, after toner and before NEOGENCE pore reducing serum. ^^

Available in SaSa Singapore!!

ReFa CARAT Workshop @ Ikeda Spa – I want smaller face!!!

There is really hope for me to look like now even until I am 40 years old!! 良かった! (yokatta – Good!)
I flip a lot alot of Japanese magazines (though I read only 1% of them I admit)and Japanese ladies are all about 小顔(small face)! Thanks to Cozycot, we can now all learn about the secret to having small faces!
One of the SECRETS is ReFa Carat!
  • Over 1 million units sold in Japan over one year!!!
  • #1 sales in professional market
  • #1 Christmas gift for the past 2 years (AHEM!! Can anyone buy this for me for my Birthday? lol)

I will share with you more about ReFa Carat below!!!

We were introduced to the amazing benefits of ReFa Carat by Jasmine(Product Trainer for ReFa), and she also did a hands-on to one side of my face to show the instant lifting of ReFa CARAT!!!!!!!!! My face INSTANTLY LIFTED UP !!

After that, we had a mini tour in Ikeda Spa, and enjoyed a 30 minute Express treatment by Ikeda Spa to further enhance ReFa Carat and ReFa Up Serum with the magical hands of the beautician! It was so comfortable that I fell asleep halfway…. LOL! Most probably will go back next time to enjoy the very Japanese SPA environment and services! I MISS JAPAN! 🙂

Don’t forget to LIKE Ikeda Spa facebook, and visit their website for more information about the services they offered!
After the pampering session, we were given the ReFa Carat for two weeks to experience the difference it can bring to us without the use of dieting/exercising/toning products!
Here we go, some information about ReFa Carat~~~
How it started…
Used in the medical field in 1980s to treat patients suffering from partial paralysis (e.g. stroke) of their face.
How it works …
Send soft gentle waves (Micro current) which stimulate the muscles back to their original state.

Benefits of Micro current
  • Define facial/ body contour
  • Increase lymphatic drainage
  • Improve blood circulation
  • Refine appearance of enlarged pores
  • Reduction in the appearance of fine lines/wrinkles
  • Improve skin texture
  • Healthy glowing skin
  • Better absorption of skincare products
Other highlights:
  • ReFa Carat is operated with solar energy which is environmental-friendly, and there is no need for any replacement part!
  • It is water-proof  and you can clean it easily with running water, wipe it dry or you can simply use in when you are in the bath tub!
Do check out the video about ReFa Carat (in Japanese though) about how to use it correctly~ ^^ Fret not, there is also a manual on how to use along with the purchase of your ReFa Carat.
After the 9 days of diligently using ReFa Carat day and night, I NEED TO HAVE IT IN MY DAILY ROUTINE BADLY. Let me show you why!!!!
Left: 19 Feb 2013, Right: 27 Feb 2013Left: 19 Feb 2013, Right: 27 Feb 2013
Left Picture taken on: 18 Feb 2013, Right picture: 27 Feb 2013 (You can see the before and after also by judging how long my bang grew in 9 days~ fast! lol)
LOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I did not do any special exercise or any diet!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SUGOI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
LOL, I want to apologize for the two black faces~~ LOL LOL!!!! This is to make sure the comparison is as accurate as possible!
The left picture was taken right after the treatment at Ikeda therefore I have no makeup on. The right picture was taken about 2hours ago when I reached home. I was due to share about ReFa Carat this Friday but why not share with you all earlier since the effect is evident in just 9 days right? ^^ Sharing is caring~~~
I REALLY NEED REFA CARAT!!!!!! ~~~~~~~ SAVE MONEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You thought ReFa Carat can only give you smaller face????? NO WAY!!!!!!!! If it can make my face smaller, it can make my body smaller too!!!!!!!!! *NODS*
OMG!!!!!!!!!! All these I also need to tone~~~ FAT DIE ME~~ Why I so greedy~~ Why I so lazy~~~
And and and… you thought toning your body is what ReFa Carat can do other than giving you smaller face?
Refa Carat also cares for your neck, shoulders, let you  have beautiful hands, and relieve your tired feet! *TOUCHED* So so so many benefits!!!!!!!!!!
I also receive the  ReFa Up Serum (worth $110) to further enhance the sugoi(great in Japanese) ReFa Carat. However, I did not use the ReFa Up Serum these 9 days as I think it will be fairer to show you the benefits of ReFa Carat just by its own! (Actually also for you readers who are considering to buy ReFa Carat, and also considering the price of ReFa Up Serum ^^)
I will continue rolling and rolling the ReFa Carat until I return it next Monday~~ *whines*
WHY ReFa Up Serum?
Use ReFa Carat and ReFa Cosmetics together to increase micro current conductivity by 4.5 times! HOLY MAMA~~~~ !!!!!!!!! I am going to start using ReFa Up Serum with ReFa Carat from either tomorrow onwards or when I get my own ReFa Carat!!!
Ok… now the hard truth about why I kept saying who want to get for me on my birthday and why I want to save money!
How much is the ReFa Carat?
S$540~~~~~~~ !!!!!!!! All great things are not cheap! *tears* Well… let me calculate again how much will the cheapest way of calculation cost!!!! KIYORA~~ You can do it!!!!
I am now 26 years old, and let’s say I use this product to when I am 66 years old,  $540/40=$13.50 per year. Everyday is just $0.03 to for all the suigoi benefits! A great deal or what!!!!!!!
Where to buy?  Ikeda Spa! Or you can visit ReFa Singapore for other places to buy or road shows!
Refa Carat is now on the TOP on my beauty gadget list!
WANT WANT WANT!

Don’t forget to join ReFa Singapore  for more information, promotions, and news! ^^ Thank you Cozycot, Jasmine from ReFa Singapore, and Ikeda Spa!
