We all know that as we age, we cannot defy the law of gravity so says Isacc Newton. Thankfully for us, medical science has progressed to fulfil our vanity with fillers to plump up our features to help us maintain our youthful appearance. I was advised by the doctors at Clifford Aesthetics to consider fillers when I went to do my monthly Q-switch laser treatments.
I consulted Dr. Timothy Shim, the Senior Consultant Plastic Surgeon of The Clifford Surgery about the sunken areas on my face.
I had hollowness in my cheeks and chin and the bone structure was not symmetrical – causing my face to be lopsided. Hence, the best option for me to fill the ‘unbalance’ cheeks was Ellansé Collagen fillers – an injectable filler which is an anti-aging treatment – to fill my cheeks (making them symmetrical) and chin to maintain a youthful looking appearance.
Aside from the hollow cheeks, I could not sleep well at night because I grind my teeth while sleeping. Doctor Seah noticed my right jaw muscle was very big and strong, so he advised administering botox to relax the muscle in order to stop the teeth grinding at night.
Now on to the Ellansé Collagen Fillers and Botox
Before Doctor Shim could start administering the injections, the Clifford nurse applied numbing cream on my face so that I am able to withstand the needles. The wait was around 30 minutes before I started to feel a tingling sensation – I could feel my face was numb. It worked to prep my face for Doctor Shim to administer the Ellansé Collagen Fillers and Jaw Botox injection.
Ellansé Collagen Fillers are unlike any other fillers which are hyaluronic acid, it has longer lasting and more effective results because Ellansé is an effective treatment known to stimulate collagen – rejuvenating the sunken area with plumpness.
Doctor Shim carefully mapped out the sunken cheek area to fill before he started. When he started the Ellansé Collagen Fillers administration, I could fill small pangs of bearable pain at maybe a scale of 1 (on a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the most painful). I think my fear of needles made me nervous and I tensed up while Doctor Shim was doing his work. Thankfully, the nurse assisting him reminded me to breathe and relax helping me to feel less tense and less pain.
After my Ellansé Collagen Fillers injections, there was completely no downtime and I went home to continue my WFH – work from home. The fillers showed immediate results and I was told it would last for months. My right botoxed jaw however took time to slowly ‘paralyze’ the muscle to a smaller jaw line.
Restoring balance and youthfulness to cheeks
I would advise anyone considering fillers to use Ellansé Collagen Fillers as they are fast to administer and less painful than the other fillers with better results to show. Collagen is native to our body and it is naturally found in our skin. Hence using the use of collagen will maintain the suppleness to create a plump youthful appearance. With the help of Ellansé Collagen Fillers, I am more confident and could smile with plump youthful cheeks, I get better sleep because the teeth grinding is less intensive at nights now.
