I was all set to review my first filler treatment today. It involves Sculptra, a natural collagen stimulator that will help lift and smooth skin without paralysing facial muscles or limiting your natural facial expressions.
Results include: a youthful appearance with gradual, natural-looking results, skin is also rejuvenated due to the collagen. Treatment with Sculptra can last up to two years.
Naturally, I was excited to witness the results, but, we found out that my candidate, Lee Lee, was allergic to the main ingredient, poly-L-actic acid!
Note to self: Next time, check if candidate has any medical allergies!
In the end, we did a patch test and sent Lee Lee home. If she doesn’t have any allergies, we can do the treatment on her at another date.
I teach Pilates on the side and I know all women want a nice, flat tummy without any love-handles and pooch. The good news is, this can be done with just a few key exercises. The most important abdominal muscle you want to target for that is the Transverse Abdominal muscle which runs across the abdomen and performs abdominal compression.It draws the belly inward and narrows the waist, getting rid of the dreaded belly ring or belly fat. Fitness trainers refer to this muscle as the body’s “internal girdle.”
Imagine yourself wearing a girdle, that’s what the transverse abdominal muscle does to your tummy. The transverse abdominal muscle is the body’s most important core stabilizer. To do this, you need to train your abs to pull back in toward your spine during exertion.
Here’s a 5-minute exercise specifically developed for this essential skill:
- First, stand up tall, then think about drawing your belly button towards your spine.
- You are not sucking in your breath, you are using your abs to do this. Once your belly button is drawn it, it automatically activates your transverse abdominal muscle.
- Try to keep your belly button in as you breathe normally. Practice a few times until it becomes comfortable.
I use this exercise myself to keep my own tummy flat. The best part about this exercise is that you can do it anytime, everyday. I do it when I am walking, shopping and standing on escalators.
If you are impatient and want quicker results, these weight loss treatments will help you:
Secrets of Asia's Most Successful Internet Gurus - out end of this week in all major bookstores!
Sorry for the lack of laser treatment reviews, I’ve been busy getting ready for the launch of my third book, Secrets Of Asia’s Most Successful Internet Gurus – which will be out end of this week in all major bookstores and on Amazon.com. This book is very special to me because it incited my passion for internet marketing and I have also learnt a lot of secret techniques from these gurus during my interviews with them.
I’m also working on my fourth book which is still secret…
Laser treatment reviews will resume in the next two weeks. I have some exciting big-name companies coming onboard to share their goodies with you readers and more interesting anti aging treatments will be coming up – IPL breast firming, hair rejuvenation, non-surgical face lift and more.
This laser treatment will deliver more supple skin, build up more collagen and your skin will actually get better over time. It also promises smaller pores and has exfoliating benefits to unclog pores.
Today, I fulfilled one of the wishes of my reader, Tricia. She is getting married in September and wants radiant, dewy skin for her big day. She tried out the SpectraPeel Skin Rejuvenating laser treatment at Vedure and I must say that the results were pretty impressive!
Her skin looked so dewy and healthy that I couldn’t help but keep staring at it. Did I say that I LOVE MY WORK? It is a dream to try out beauty treatments for work, and even when I am not the one doing the treatments, it makes me really happy to see others try it out and be happy with the results.
