My first time doing fillers and botox!

I'm no longer a filler and botox virgin!

Which also means.... I look better now! :D

Two months ago, I went to Cutis Medical Laser Clinic for fillers and botox with William accompanying me. It was one of the best decision I've ever made in my life!

Read on to know about my first fillers and botox experience at Cutis Medical Laser Clinic!

[UPDATE: for before and after photos, click here!]


To be honest, I am quite a timid person.. Many thoughts were buzzing around my head before I decided to go for fillers and botox.. I was super nervous and scared!!!

"Will it be painful?"

"Are there any side effects?"

"Is there any down time?"

... and so on...

It was my first time ever doing such facial enhancements, I had zero knowledge about fillers and botox, the only thing I knew was that I wanted to look better. I spent quite a few nights reading up about fillers and botox online before going down to the clinic, helped me a lot too!

Cutis Medical Laser Clinic is conveniently located at Pacific Plaza, which is a stone's throw away from Orchard MRT station. cutie

When I entered the clinic, I was ushered into a consultation room to fill up my personal details and medical history. The nurse also took my "before" photos with a machine.

Dr Sylvia came in shortly after, she's so pretty that half my nervous-ness is gone! I thought, "If she knows how to look good, she can help me look good too!" She looked at the photos of my face profile taken by the machine and suggested me to do nose fillers and jaw botox!


She gave me a very detailed explanation about everything, knowing that it was my first time and I was pretty nervous.

Juvederm Voluma is used for the fillers on my nose to increase my bridge a little and to sharpen the tip. Juvederm Voluma is hyaluronic acid filler (our body contains hyaluronic acid too), and it also contains Lidocaine which is a painkiller. This filler will last me for 1.5 years. I was so happy to know that I'll have a nicer nose for the next 1.5 years!

BOTOX® will be injected into my jaw muscles to relax them, end result will be a slimmer face! The reduction of muscle activity means the muscle pushes outwards less and so the jawline is leaner and sharper. The slimming effect will last for about 6 months.

Before the actual procedure, they cleansed my nose as well as jaw area and applied numbing cream to those areas. Cleansing to prevent any possible infections and numbing cream to make the procedure more painless!


The numbing cream takes about 10-15 minutes to take effect, I can really feel the numbness in those areas thereafter..

I got 2 photographers that day hehe!


My nose fillers was done first. The nurse iced the area for a few seconds before the fillers were injected to minimise bruising. Some areas did not hurt at all, while some areas hurt a little. (I have low tolerance for pain, the most painful ones felt like normal injections actually.)


My new nose, I love the bridge and tip! I had some slight bruising where the needle went in, but they can be reduced by icing and they were gone in a week. Some people don't even bruise at all! Oh, and I was told that my nose will swell a little in the next few days, and the fillers will settle down by 10-20% after that.


Next was the jaw botox! I received three jabs on both sides. The jaw botox was totally painless, I only felt a funny sensation when the botox were injected and it was gone after a few seconds. There were no bruising for the botox jabs at all!


All the minor pain was worth it, I've got a hand to squeeze and I'll end up prettier! :)


After the procedure and a while of icing, another nurse came in to help me conceal the bruises on my nose. They provide this service to all their customers so you can leave the clinic looking good!

I can't stop admiring my nose after the fillers!! The jaw botox will need about 4-8 weeks to take effect so the face slimming effect wasn't visible that day yet.


My nose looked so much better than before and yet amazingly natural! If I didn't blog about this, I'm sure you can't tell at all :P


Here's pretty Doctor Sylvia with me and my boyfriend! I'm so thankful to her for giving me more confidence about my looks, as well as my boyfriend and the MFP crew who accompanied me there!


Watch my video here (sorry I didn't look at the camera sometimes)! :)


Meanwhile, feel free to ask me any questions at Myfatpocket's forum regarding the fillers as well as botox and I will try my best to answer them! :D

I also blogged about the before and after photos three months later, click here for the photos!
