so back to this post, today I will be blogging about my experience with Drx :)
Recently I've been introduced to DRx and how I knew bout DRx was thanks to Eric, that boy couldn't stop raving about DRx and how awesome they were so when I was approached by them I was super happy and I couldn't wait to start my journey with them! 

My first appointment with DRx was Consultation with Dr Yanni, who was appointed to be my doctor.
Upon reaching the clinic I was blown away, it was so huge and white and clean, really got the 'medical' feel, I really liked that everything was very professional :) 
DRx has the entire level tho, one side comprises of the MediSpa and the other
(where I will be heading) would be the clinic :) Sign is placed there to avoid confusion! Haha
Just a quick visual tour of the place, here's the reception area!
Waiting area
Here's another waiting area which is located further inside the clinic, known as the private waiting area
Photo room to snap before/after pictures, it's super cool okay.
Like an entire room just for taking professional pictures to track your progress with DRx
treatment rooms with their specific treatment machines etc..
and finally the consultation room!

So what would I be doing as my very first treatment with DRx.... well its......Fillers!!!
What are Fillers?
Fillers are basically temporary enhancements injected into your face to create definition or fill out wrinkles, dents.. basically give your face the volume that it lacks of. Fillers aren't permanent tho, they lasts about 3-6months (depending on how fast your body metabolize them) some people would have them longer and some would only have them for a short period of time. 

If they're not permanent, where do they disappear to? 
Well, FILORGA fillers are made up of mainly hyaluronic acid and this hyaluronic acid is already present in our body.. so what our body does overtime is digest the acid and yea, the fillers will therefore dissolve away as well.

So where would I be doing the fillers?
After consulting with Dr Yanni and expressing some of my concerns, my fillers will be done on the cheeks and chin! I've always had this issue with my cheeks where I see this "dent" 
(you can see it really clearly on this pic above) and it gets obvious in most of my pics and I hate it cos it makes me look like my skin is sagging.... and I look super old!!! Dr Yanni said that could be fixed with fillers and I was super happy and excited to hear that :) 
I also chose my chin as to give my face a longer shape so it looks shaper and 
it makes my face look slimmer as well.

My consultation was a week before the actual procedure and I was super excited for the day to come!

So.. fast forwarding to the day of my procedure, I was brought into the private area to have numbing cream applied to the areas which I was gonna have the fillers done on.
Taking before and after shots first, followed by application of the numbing cream..
the other 2 bloggers who was with me that day were Joanna and Tricia! 
Hehe all of us looking forward to our treatments  (*^▽^*)

got to wait an hour for the cream to set in,

and after that we proceeded into our respective treatment rooms with the doctors assigned to us
HAHA sorry about the shower cap.. I look super ugly lol!!!

numbing cream removed!!!
The redness is just a side effect from the numbing cream, nothing much goes away in awhile :) 
and here's Dr Yanni! I'm so glad to have Dr Yanni as my doctor, she's really very nice and funny!
Makes you feel super comfortable about the procedure and knows what's best for your face :)
Right here she's explaining to me on where the fillers will be injected into
followed by marking the spots..


icing the areas that are to be injected..

and finally starting the procedure! 
Okay I know it looks painful..... but I FELT NO PAIN! I could feel the fillers going under my skin but that was about it. I also think it's partly cos I have a high tolerance for pain so..... yeah but I assure you I didn't felt pain at all which was awesome! 
after the cheeks were my chin!
and I was done in about.... 30-40minutes? Didn't exactly keep track of the time but throughout the procedure I felt really at ease and comfortable as I knew I was in safe and good hands ;)

A picture of me and Dr Yanni! Super chio yes?

and here's my face right after the treatment! 
first from my camera and second from the phone after I left the place, 
can you see my visibly fuller cheeks and sharper chin??! Major love love love!
I was so happy cos with my cheeks looking so much fuller it have my face a more youthful look
which I love!!! Especially when I smile you can see my cheeks so round and defined :D



and here's one day after the procedure,
Super in love with the results!!! 
I mean of course if you compare my face now and a day after the procedure my cheeks aren't as round anymore as there was a little swelling right after it was done. But I can still see my cheeks fuller than before and my chin is still sharp which I really love. 
Honestly I can say now I'm truly in love with fillers!  (´ ▽`).。o♡

 A big fat hug and Thank You to DRx and Dr Yanni and her team for the procedure and a little more boost of confidence as to how I look now. Am really glad to have stepped on and embarked on this journey with them :)
