Quick fix to re­ju­ve­nate the skin

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - STAR SPECIAL -

DOES the term “teatime beauty” in­ter­est you? With to­day’s busy life­styles, ev­ery­thing has to be faster and more ef­fec­tive. This ap­plies in the world of beauty, too.

Aes­theti­cian Dr Porsch Ng uses the term teatime beauty to de­scribe her range of ther­a­pies, as the du­ra­tion re­quired lies within 20 to 25 min­utes.

Dr Ng has been re­search­ing non-sur­gi­cal aes­thetic tech­niques and prac­tis­ing a com­bi­na­tion of Western and East­ern ther­a­pies.

She spe­cialises in ther­a­pies that are non­in­va­sive, non-sur­gi­cal and does not re­quire down­time.

Hav­ing prac­tised aes­thetic beauty tech­niques since 1998, she has cre­ated tech­niques that beau­tify a per­son us­ing non­in­va­sive meth­ods.

Dr Ng is cer­ti­fied by the Min­istry of Sci­ence and Stan­dard Malaysia, and in­ter­na­tion­ally by the In­ter­na­tional & Per­son­nel Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion (IPEC) bureau as an ad­vance aes­thetic physi­cian.

She holds a Doc­tor of Phi­los­o­phy in Der­ma­tol­ogy from the Golden State Univer­sity, the United States.

“My prac­tice and re­search lie in non­in­va­sive tech­niques that re­ju­ve­nate the skin,” she says. “What I do gives im­me­di­ate re­sults.”

When a client sees Dr Ng, she takes 15 min­utes just to study her ex­pres­sion.

“A per­son may look in the mir­ror and thinks she sees what she sees. But when she turns, smiles, laughs, frowns, there are other things too.”

Dr Ng uses a com­bi­na­tion of fillers such as col­la­gen, epi­der­mal growth fac­tor (EGF) and fi­bre growth fac­tor (FGF).

Over the years, she has honed her skills in Ja­pan, South Korea, Sin­ga­pore and Bangkok through con­fer­ences, sym­po­siums and train­ing ses­sions. It takes a pair of dex­ter­ous hands and years of ex­pe­ri­ence to make a face look pretty.

The prick of a nee­dle will not sud­denly give some­one beau­ti­ful cheek­bones.

“An aes­thetic physi­cian must be strong in her skills. He or she must have a sense of art, cre­ativ­ity and the abil­ity to il­lus­trate,” says Dr Ng.

“Dif­fer­ent types of nee­dle in­ser­tion an­gle, depth, lay­ers or tis­sue will give you dif­fer­ent re­sults.

“If a nee­dle is in­serted wrongly, some­one’s face risks go­ing the wrong way.”

Faces come in dif­fer­ent an­gles – whether a per­pen­dic­u­lar an­gle, oblique an­gle or hor­i­zon­tal an­gle – Dr Ng’s ex­per­tise is able to ad­dress all types.

“I have had many suc­cess­ful cases,” she says, as she flips through her iPad full of be­fore and af­ter pic­tures of ladies, pre­dom­i­nantly with sharper and tighter look­ing faces.

A pos­i­tive point in Dr Ng’s ther­a­pies are that her pa­tients need not go un­der lo­cal anaes­thetic.

In re­cent years, Korean hos­pi­tals have in­vited Dr Ng over for her to learn their tech­niques.

“What is cur­rently pop­u­lar in Korea is the V-lift ther­apy. The ther­apy essen­tially sees the en­hance­ment of the V-shape in the jaw line.”

Now, ev­ery­one can turn back the clock and look younger. Th­ese non-in­va­sive ther­a­pies are suit­able for all ages and faces.
