Being a mother of two young girls is no mean feat. Adding a full-time job and household chores into the mix makes me wonder how long can I keep up with this before losing my sanity! All the late nights have seriously taken a toll on me and I can’t help but feel that I have aged tremendously. Whenever I glance at myself in the mirror, I wish those eyebags would disappear and my face would be miraculously sharper. I decided it’s time to visit Halley Medical Aesthetics.
Halley Medical Aesthetics is located in the heart of town, within Orchard Gateway shopping mall. I love the convenient location as it meant that my husband and kids could chill at a café or check out a toy store nearby while waiting for me.
I had a consultation with Dr. Terence Tan and told him about my facial concerns. I felt that my face had gotten rounder with all the unhealthy snacking and my hollow eyes made me look a lot older.
Also, I wish for sharper features to make myself look more attractive! I actually enjoyed my consultation session with Dr Terence Tan as he is very patient, approachable and has a great sense of humor! He also took time to explain and clear all the doubts which I had.
At the end of the session, Dr Terence Tan recommended dermal fillers from Juvederm to enhance features such as tear trough, nose, chin and cheeks, as well as Botox to slim down my jawline. Dr Terence introduced Juvederm, which is the gold standard of dermal fillers, to me. There are various types of Juvederm fillers that will work best for different parts of the face.
In a nutshell, Dr Terence Tan recommended Juvederm Voluma (the firmest filler) for Chin and nose bridge, Juvederm Volift (mid-soft filler) for cheeks and Juvederm Vobella (the softest filler) for tear trough.
I revisited Halley Medical Aesthetics a few weeks later for the treatment. My face was cleansed and some numbing cream was applied to my nose, tear trough and jaw. It wasn’t my first time getting fillers done for my face so I kinda knew what to expect. I was bracing myself for all the pain that would be bestowed upon me but was surprised that the procedure was swift and relatively painless!

I later learnt that Dr Terence Tan made use of the Magic Needle for injecting dermal fillers, which is actually a cannula specially designed with a rounded tip. The Magic Needle reduces the discomfort factor by up to 90%, thus making the procedure a lot more tolerable! I would say that the overall experience was not traumatising at all, plus the clinic assistant was very attentive in placing the ice packs on the treatment areas of my face before and after injecting of the fillers.
I could see that the effects were instantaneous! My nose bridge was visibly higher and my chin was slightly sharper. Also, my tear troughs were no longer hollow, and I definitely looked more alert and youthful.
I would say that the change wasn’t too drastic and extreme, but just a subtle yet impactful enhancement here and there to make myself look better on the overall. There wasn’t downtime at all, except that there was a little puffiness for the next couple of hours but it went away really quickly. I could still wash my face and put on makeup as usual. The results actually got better with time and I could see that my jawline is much sharper now. On average, the fillers are expected to last about a year.
