SP: Mediviron UOA

10:30 AM


On last Monday 27 January 2014, I made an important decision- about my face- and in some ways my life as well. 

Oh, you can get ready some snacks just in case this is long. :P

First, to start this post is my picture, taken during a high tea blogger event, December last year.

My face looked angular when I smile, which I noticed. If I don't smile, I would look like most of my passport pictures.

So, where is this prologue going?

I was sponsored a Botox treatment by Mediviron UOA clinic.

Yea, Botox treatment. Surprise? Me as well, actually, but this is a decision I had to make. 

Here is a picture of me during my school primary years, around Primary 2 maybe AND compared with my recent passport picture.

My cheeks are so different. Or maybe not...

P.S: I dislike my nose as well but that is another story. Soon. Not so soon. Maybe never.

I gained weight between Primary 5 and 6. Most of that weight gain was because of my insecurities that time AKA just moved to a new school (moving during Primary 5 was horrible, everyone settled down with their own circle of friends). So I stuffed myself, as if being heavier would make people accept me more. Hey, I moved to a smaller town from what looked like a bigger town. From first contact, the other kids thought I was some snobbish, upper class girl.

So anyway, my weight that time was a heavy 55KG, maybe 60Kg. My IC picture was not pretty. Super chubby. When compared to my later IC picture (yeah, the change to new IC after Form 5 I think), even my friends that time in Form 5 couldn't believe the change. My face looked that different. 

Sorry, didn't have that horrible picture but here is one from when I was in Form 5. 

Luckily, I was selected for PLKN after SPM. It made me lose some weight until I was at 48KG.
Sorry for the blurry picture. Really old one taken from Facebook.

Now it is 51KG due to college food. Damn fatty, fried food and in huge amount and then must finish or feel bad leaving food unfinished. Sigh...

All of that weight loss and gain but my cheeks never changed much after the first loss. They maintained their puffy fish look. Oh okay, not identical puffy fish look.

When strangers meet me, like my recent JPJ test, a lady officer commented that I looked, "Putih gebu". Translation by Google: White fluffy. Errr...

Therefore, when I received an email from Joan Goh, Graphic Designer cum Online Marketing Executive about being one of their blogger team, I was excited! I booked a doctor's consultation on Monday, 27 January.

On the day, I met the doctor. I was shy and unsure, having second thoughts of even entering Mediviron. She consulted me about the Botox treatment. She checked my face and said that I have a square face and I thought I had a round face actually! At first, she suggested that I do Botox and fillers at my chin if I want a sharper face but the fillers require additional chargers. Another option was Botox treatment and Venus Freeze. Gladly, I took the second option. However, Venus Freeze has to be done on another day as it can't be done together with Botox as it may affect the Botox treatment.

So the assistant, applied numbing cream on my jaw and I waited for about 30 minutes.

Yes, this is me.

During the wait, I was near a room where they were conducting a workshop. I know it is bad to eavesdrop but the makeup tips were tempting to listen to.

After the 30 minutes plus, the assistant brought me back to the doctor's room for the Botox treatment. Joan came in that time and we met for the first time. She helped me to take pictures during the treatment.
Treatment time!

The doctor was marking the jaw and applying antiseptic.

She told me to clench my jaw this time. Clench and relax...

When she was doing my left side, I nearly couldn't clench hard enough. I felt numb already!

Do not believe my otherwise super calm face during the treatment.

I was nervous, very nervous and scared especially when I saw the needle that the doctor was holding.

"Must not panic, any sudden movements, later needle go different place and confirm more pain, so keep still."

Basically, that was what went through my mind. But with my calm face, sure can fool anybody that I was not nervous or panicking even! The moment I got down from the treatment table, I felt so glad that it was over!

During the injection, the numbing cream worked but not well enough. I could still feel a bit of pain when the needle went in. But I calmed myself that it won't be long. No pain, no gain, right?

After treatment, the doctor said that I have to come back in two weeks for a review and then maybe the Venus Freeze can be done. During that time, I am not supposed to do any hard chewing, like apples or mutton. 

My face after a few hours. Sorry for the almost zombie-like face. :P

I am going to compare my Before picture (the passport picture is the clearest and recent anyway) with some pictures 1 week later. Hope there is a difference!
