Review: Eyebrow Embroidery Touch-Up at Browtisan by Coco Qi

Hi lovelies,

It's been more than a month since my previous eyebrow embroidery, thus I went back for my eyebrow touch-up at Browtisan and was very happy to have Coco to do my eyebrows touch-up for me.

Here's a photo of the final result of my eyebrows after touch-up:


This is the photo of my eyebrows before touch up:


Before starting on the Eyebrow Embroidery touch-up, I had numbing cream applied to my eyebrows first, thus no pain was experienced during the touch-up service.


Next, was the trimming of my eyebrows to perfect the eyebrow shape based on my facial features. Coco has always been wonderful in trimming and giving me neat eyebrows.


I was then led into the treatment room to begin my eyebrow embroidery procedure. 
My eyebrow area was sterilized with alcohol wipe first before the embroidery procedure. 
All blades used at Browtisan were new and they don't reuse their blades on other customers.  


 Coco performed 2 different embroidery techniques for my eyebrows.
As I have sparse and hardly visible eyebrow at the front part, Coco had to use the dotting technique to darken the front portion of my eyebrow to make my brows more visible. 
The second technique was the drawing of artificial brow lines for the middle and end portions.
I have to emphasized how professional Coco is when it comes to giving her customers the perfect eyebrows.

After she was done with the eyebrow touch-up when I'm lying down, she told me to sit up and she checked my eyebrows and did further touch-up until she was satisfied with the final result. 


With the shape and eyebrow embroidery done,  colour dye was applied to the whole of my eyebrows to unify the colour of my eyebrows.


Super adore the final result of my eyebrows and now, I don't have to bother about drawing and shaping my eyebrows anymore when applying makeup. My whole makeup process was made much faster and easier.


Browtisan is my trusted salon I go to for professional eyebrow shaping and embroidery and I proudly share about their service with my family, friends and readers. No regrets at all!

Review: Eyelash Extension Touch-Up at Browtisan

Hi lovelies,

I did my eyelash extension touch-up at Browtisan after my previous extension.

Comparing my before and after eyelash extension touch-up, you can tell that touch-up is really important especially when you unknowingly did your eyelash extension during your eyelash fall off and regrow cycle.


This photo shows my extended lashes condition before my eyelash extension touch-up:


This photo shows the final result after my eyelash extension touch-up:


The whole process wasn't easy for my therapist as my natural lashes grow in crisscross direction so she had to remove some of the previous extensions and comb my lashes before sticking on new eyelash extensions. The lash extension were stick onto my eyelash strand by strand professionally by Browtisan's therapist.




I love the final result of my eyelashes after the touch-up!

Review: Mederma Scar Healing Proactive Gel

Hi lovelies,

Today, I am going to share about Mederma, USA's No.1 Doctor Recommended Scar Brand

Mederma is a proactive scar gel that helps to visibly reduce scarring with a Triple Restore Action that softens, smoothens, and replenishes the skin, effectively improving the appearance of old and new scars.

I believe most of us have our essentials for nails, eyebrows, face, wounds, hygiene, we should also have Mederma Scar Healing Proactive Gel in our essentials.


3 reasons to use Mederma:
1. It is the No. 1 doctor recommended scar management brand in the USA
2. Its proactive gel formula is clinically proven to be effective against scarring
3. It helps you feel confident in your skin again.


The main causes of scars are cuts or lacerations, burns and scalds, abrasions, small accidents, and even surgery. Once you have a wound, the skin suffers inflammation, and produces cells to close the wound. As it closes, skin at the wound undergoes matrix remodeling, and may result in a raised scar, also known as a hypertrophic scar. 

On these, Mederma® exerts its maximum effect through its key ingredient, Cepalin’s anti-inflammatory properties and its ability to promote faster healing.



With its active ingredients, it is suitable for use on both new and old scars, Mederma® Proactive Gel works on dry, healed, and closed scar types. It has Cepalin, or Onion Extract, for anti-inflammatory and softening benefits, Allantoin to smoothen, boost skin healing, and reduce itching, and Aloe Vera to replenish by moisturising and soothing. 


Mederma® is also clinically proven to improve the cosmetic appearance of post-surgical scars, according to a Mederma® Draelos study. Mederma® helps to soothe discomfort, promotes healing and – with regular and consistent application – makes your scar hardly visible.

For best results, early and regular treatment is required. For new scars, Mederma® should be applied twice a day for at least eight weeks. For old scars, Mederma® should be applied twice a day for at least three to six months.



In my opinion, I find that Mederma Proactive Gel is light-weight and its watery texture allows easy spread out over the scar area. It also has a soothing floral scent with a slight cooling sensation upon application. The gel absorbs into the skin without leaving any residue, stickiness or discomfort. I find it suitable to be used in Singapore's warm weather and 3 weeks into using Mederma, I noticed healing and less visibility to the scar on my leg. 


Sharing 5 Tips to Lighten Stubborn Scars by Dr Owen Sunga, Regional Medical Director of MERZ ASIA PACIFIC:

1. Fresh Scars Are Particularly Sensitive. 
Avoid extreme temperatures for six months to a year. Do not go to saunas or stay outside when it is very cold – this may negatively affect the regeneration process of the skin. Make sure you cover your scar well when you go out in cold weather. 

2. Regular Massage Helps To Support The Healing Process Of The Skin. 
The combination of Mederma® Proactive Gel plus careful massage can help to loosen up the scar tissue and aid the formation of healthy tissue. Apply the gel to the middle of the scar, slowly spread it outwards, and rub it in with small circular motions. 

3. Sunlight Does Not Fade Scars. 
Dr Sunga recommends that you not expose your scar to the sun, as scar tissue does not produce melanin to shield the skin against UV radiation. Always use sun protection when exposing your scar to UV rays. 

4. Bathing Stubborn Scars May Speed Up The Healing Process. 
Scars on certain areas such as the elbows and knees may tend to be more scaly or drier. To soften them, add a squirt of Mederma® Proactive Gel to lukewarm water and bathe the scar for about 15 minutes. 

5. Let Mederma® Work Overnight. 
For large scars, the use of a gel dressing is recommended. Soften the scar tissue first using a warm, moist pad. Then apply Mederma® Proactive Gel in a moderately thick layer. Gently massage the gel over the scar, cover the area with thin kitchen foil. Put a dressing on top of this. Then simply leave the gel to work overnight.


Time to let your physical scars heal and reduce in visibility!

Mederma® Proactive Gel is available in 20g ($29.80) and 50g ($59.80) at all Guardian, Unity, and selected Watsons stores. The 50g pack size is only available at Guardian stores.


Love,
Yvonne
