The WAND

Postby kk_lass » Tue, 20 Sep 2005 3:12 am

Hi, i have heard that this product the WAND from a friend..
It is made from "quoting from the brochure" precious L-Vitamin C derivative, Tocopherol-Vitamin E, Lipoic Acid and Glutathione which comes from beer enzymes.. Help to remove spots, pockmarks and acne ...etc etc..

But i will say dun expect INSTANT results in anyt products you try.. Do give it and ur face time to react.. But i will say if eventually it is going to make ur face better.. i still think it is worth it.

Hope this help.. :D

hm.. suffering from acne scars too.. have tried many products.. dun seem to work.. but i was advised to use raw aloe vera.. it did help in lightening.. n it's cheap...maybe you'd like to give it a try.. but it will not totally remove scars..hm.. can anyone advise where to get those acne scar removal products? or perhaps does any facial sessions work? however.. i have a budget to keep as im still schooling..

I would suggest consulting a dermatologist. I had this friend with quite severe acne. He was started on some powerful medication by his dermatologist and within six months his acne was a lot better. The difference is remarkable.

Eh, bad news to share lah..

If you are still young and have acne scars, the possibility of scars recovering is high.

But as skin ages, the recovery rate also slows down.

If the scars are of the crater kind (eg concave), my dermatologists told me in cannot be removed liao

The only method is to laser the outer surface off to make it even, or inject fillers in to fill up the 'concave'.

neh, NEVER EVER buy products from outside, meaning places other than the doctors like pharmacies, either they work superbly slow or they don't work at all. ^^

go to a doctor, any clinic will do, tell him or her about your scars problems. ask what he or she recommends... then ask about NeoStrata HQ Lightening Gel, a doctor once told me it's from the US and it works quite well for me, one of the scars disappear after 2 months of continuous using. the lightening gel cannot be sold in any pharmacies or any where else, only the doctors can sell you that. ^^ it' costs 50 bucks for one tube, but it lasts you forever, it's been more than one year and there's still more than 3 quaters left. :D you're only a couple of years older than me, so it should be workable on you too. :D

well... one thing though, i don't know of all of the clinics in singapore have this... but if you ever heard of the HL Clinic.. yeah, they do have it there. :D

just my 2 cents worth.:D

Portable peeling kit

Postby Angel Lim » Wed, 28 Sep 2005 3:59 pm

Hi, i have a good, safe and mild diamond peeling kit, tested and used by many OL and student as well as housewife here, the effect is good.
It is an import product, simple to use, no need professional care and you will get the same result as from clinic, but DIY from your home.
Moreover it is an affortable kit, which we can do our own microdermabrasion anytime at home, just 10 - 20 min a day, twice a weeks. You will see result after 4 or 6 treatment.
Please contact if you feel interest.
Thanks.

I've been hearing so much about Amira Magic cream, a friend who lives in NY mentioned that to me, she is actualy using it, nd it worked perfectly on her, im thinking of having her send me one, so i can try. She actually swore on this product, she just emailed that she will send me one to try, if it works which she bets it will. I will try to see if there's anyone sellig that here. :)

THe amira magic is on it's way, i should get it by early next week. My friend said I only need 3-4 days to notice the difference, but guess all skin have different reactions, so I will definitely keep you guys posted. Ta Ta! :)
