注射胎盘素

医生,我要注射胎盘素!

什么胎盘素?

就是那一个可以美容的胎盘素啊!

最近,不知怎么了,胎盘素似乎成了城里最火红的美容圣品,用过的人言之凿凿,没用过的人蠢蠢欲动。到诊所里这样要求的病人不在少数。薇妮也是其中之一。

有一个法国的牌子看起来好像不错,几个朋友注射之后都说效果很显著。我搜寻了一些资料,这个牌子的产品面世也好几年了。据你的经验,这个胎盘素可不可靠?

我注射胎盘素的经验?坦白说,我一点经验的没有。每一次我这么说,病人都很吃惊。

没有经验?那怎么可能?

怎么不可能?胎盘素的注射在国外或许很火红,但在大马却从来没有经过卫生部的批准。换句话说,无论是人类、绵羊或什么动物的胎盘素注射,根本不应该在这里存在,因为它们都不是合法的。

不合法?可是,我身边的亲戚朋友,很多人都做过这个疗程啊!

真的吗?在哪里做?哪一家诊所?哪一位医生?还是在美容院?

好像是某家美容院。薇妮想了想,不太确定的说。

美容院?那就更奇怪了。注射药物怎么能在美容院进行呢?

比地点更重要的问题是:是谁在替病人注射?注射后若引发敏感性休克,有没有足够的医学知识、条件和设备进行急救?

我打开电脑,在星报的网页搜寻打上胎盘素这个词,立刻就有相关的新闻。去年,一位消费者在接受了疗程后发生后遗症,伤口溃烂,留下难看的伤疤,怀疑是接受了胎盘素注射疗程引起的。一个星期后,卫生部发出文告说胎盘素注射在我国是不合法的。
不说安全与合法性的问题,胎盘素真的有驻颜的奇效吗?有没有足够的医学研究和报告呢?很多时候,很多所谓的治疗效果,都是经过可以夸大甚至是电脑修图后的效果。这一些都是不法商人为了吸引更多消费者而惯用的伎俩。

还记得前几个月,在香港有4位人士在接受了怀疑是干细胞美容静脉注射疗程后,细菌感染而丢失了性命的意外吗?他们都是身体健康的消费者,为了健康之外的理由进行非必要的疗程,还因而丢失了性命,真令人唏嘘。

如果说爱美是人的天性,那么抗老就是人的梦想。为了爱美和抗老罔顾安全,继而丢失了健康,根本就是本末倒置。美丽与青春,都是建立在健康的身体上。没了健康,再美丽,还有意思吗?

这个星期的康熙谈论的话题和我的工作有些关系,看节目的当儿也顺便看看台湾对于微整形的趋势如何,和本地的趋势到底有什么不一样。

台湾人对于医学美容整形的接受度也还真高,至少可以在节目中侃侃而谈,对于爱美的话题点头如捣蒜。

鼻子山根,苹果肌,下巴,法令纹,木偶纹,咬肌缩小,等等的些微改变可以让一个人的外观变得很不一样。

肉毒杆菌素可以拉提得很好看,就如节目中的医美医生钟医生60岁却看不出,而且效果自然。

无论做什么,健康和安全依然是前提。

现在整个医美的趋势,还是以自然,安全为主。使用的材料产品都以身体可以自然代谢的为主。在那里都是一样的。

不过,先天不足,也别灰心,后天可以努力让自己更进步。
看着节目里有些女生还真的因为改变得更好而更有自信,何乐而不为?
不过依然有一些在进行医美疗程后反而减分,可要多注意。

要找到和自己一样审美观的医生不容易,如果找到一个模式化疗程的医生,很大可能性以后可以找到和自己同模样的很多人呢!看看韩国的现在整形环境,就知道了。

Dr. Anna's Celebrity Lift


There has recently been a lot of hype about non-surgical face lifts. Compared to surgical face lifts, these ones are subtle and the effects remain for months after the initial treatment. This option has attracted many who prefer a more conservative approach towards achieving a face lift – without going under the knife. One such option is Anna’s Celebrity Lift, which involves injections that can be performed in a couple of hours in the clinic. 

What is Anna’s Celebrity lift?

It is a non-surgical lift combining botulinum toxin A and hyaluronic acid in one treatment. The injec- tion method is distinctive to myself and hence the name. It is performed based on Anna Hoo’s Asian Facial Beauty Principle.

What is Anna Hoo’s Asian Facial Beauty Principle?

The basic principle of facial enhancement is to en- hance the beautiful part of the face and harmonise the rest of the facial features to create a balanced, youthful and confident appearance After years of traveling and learning from world-renown aesthetic dermatologists and aes- thetic plastic surgeons, I noticed that the conven- tional ‘balanced’ facial features are based on the Caucasian face. A treatment plan that is based on a Caucasian face does not suit the Asian face and often gives unnatural results on Asian patients. I have, therefore, come up with my very own Facial Beauty Principle for treating patients. This can be individually tailored for face enhance- ment and sculpting Asian faces.

What does Anna’s Celebrity Lift entail?

Every face has areas which give the face charac- ter – a signature feature, if you like. They are the parts of the face that leave a crucial impression when you first meet someone. The challenge lies in identifying these facial parts and enhancing them without changing them with botolinum toxin A and hyaluronic acid. This is followed by harmonising the rest of the face to fit in with the signature parts of the face. By doing so, not only are we maintaining the main character of an individual face but also balancing out the rest of the face. The main areas most Asians need to target are the cheeks, nose, lips and chin – which can be seen as an imaginary "T" down the centre of the face. The horizontal line is drawn from the right cheek to the left cheek while the vertical line extends from the frown line down to the chin. These are the main areas of focus in Anna’s Celebrity Lift. Undoubtedly, everyone is unique and the target area will be different from one person to another.

What role do botulinum toxin and hyaluronic acid play in this treatment?

Botulinum toxin A relaxes tensed facial muscles and reduces wrinkles. It is administered in optimal doses to create a relaxed rather than plastic look. Additionally, this medicine creates a lifting effect on the skin which lasts for months. Hyaluronic acid enhances the shape of the face giving it sharp and distinctive features. It also replenishes volume on the face that has been lost due to aging, returning to it a soft and plump contour. This facial curve or contour is tailored to each individual’s appearance based on Anna’s Beauty Principles so as to have harmony in all the features. The treatment proper also improves hydration and blood circulation to the face, giving it radiance and suppleness.

Who are the ideal candidates for Anna’s Celebrity Lift?

Anna’s Celebrity Lift is for everyone. Anyone who wants a fresh, confident and glowing face is welcome. The majority of my patients who want this treatment are around 25 to 45 years of age. Some of them have had plastic surgery in the past and are keen to maintain so that they enjoy longer-lasting results while some would like more definitive treatment of their facial features, which may be flat and unattractive. Having said that, I have to stress that the lift enhances but does not drastically alter the facial features of a person.

What can the patient expect of Anna’s Celebrity Lift?

A fresh, radiant look which translates to appearing three to five years younger in under two hours of treatment. The best thing about the treatment is that the improvement continues for months after the treatment. There is a low risk of transient, minimal bruis- ing and swelling immediately after the treatment but that’s all. In our Asian community, a person with a pleasant complexion is at a distinct advantage in terms of social life and life at work. One need not be extraordinarily good looking. But having well- looked after and harmonious facial features is highly beneficial. Anna’s Celebrity Lift is aimed at assisting patients to achieve harmonious facial fea- tures so that a celebrity-like confidence is attained. The improved confidence will undoubtedly have an impact on quality of life.

肉毒脸?冰冻脸?

照片来自网络


肉毒杆菌素到是什么,工作了那么久,还是有很多病人询问,尤其初次到访者。

简单来说,这是一种可以让肌肉“睡觉”的药物。

肌肉在“睡觉”的时候可以放松,从而改善动态皱纹。

 接受了肉毒杆菌素疗程后,效果是动态皱纹柔化减少,或者甚至可以达到没有皱纹的效果。 不过如果要达到没有皱纹的效果,那么就需要让肌肉“睡死”,现实中就是把整个肌肉给麻痹掉。

不过肌肉“睡死”的话,就会有僵硬的感觉,外观看起来就是所谓的Botox Face肉毒脸,或Frozen Face冰冻脸。

除了一些不能够忍受脸部一点点皱纹存在的病人外,大部分的人士,都比较喜欢拥有自然的表情,而皱纹减少或柔化。

我们都希望接受任何疗程后,旁人都看得出你更好看了,更年轻了,可是却看不出或说不出你曾经做过了什么。 总不会喜欢别人看到你就问:你是不是打“毒针”了,整个脸僵硬掉了。

找一个有经验的医生帮你注射肉毒杆菌素很重要,新手比较会常出状况。
要在有好和自然的效果,以及冰冻脸之间取舍,医生的判断和技术是重要的因素。
不过万一出现冰冻脸的效果,也别担心,4-6个月后会恢复自然的。
另外一个要注意的一点,是确保医生的审美观和你是一样的,不然出现“重口味”,欲哭无泪。
