ATLAS MEDICAL CLINIC | DR SM YUEN (NOSE FILLERS)

Hello all, so I'm back today with an update that starting this year I have decided to join Atlas Medical Clinic by Dr SM Yuen :) 
And to make it clear there wasn't an issue with the clinic I was with previously, I just wanted to try out something different for a change this year and Atlas Medical Clinic was my choice for 2015! 

So far my skincare journey with them has been a breeze, I haven't had any issues with my skin and to maintain my skin I have laser sessions every 2 weeks as well as a facial once a month! 

Just a little background on Atlas Medical Clinic, Dr Yuen's practice revolves around the use of non-
invasive to minimally invasive synergistic treatments to tackle a variety of problems ranging from 
aesthetic dermatology to cosmetic enhancements. Formally trained and mentored by one of Korea's top aesthetics doctor, his area of expertise would be Korean Medical Aesthetics which are usually safe and really natural!

For this post, I won't be going into my laser or facials yet as I figured there will be more updates on those in the future so I will start with the recent aesthetic treatment which I have done with them which is.... Nose Fillers! 
So for those of you who have followed my blog would  have known that fillers aren't new to me, I have had them done on my chin and cheeks before but for the nose it's something new!
I don't hate my nose (don't get me wrong) just that I wanted to see how my nose would look like with a higher nose bridge, lol yes...... I'm just being vain! Hence I decided to try nose fillers out! 

So basically what the fillers will do will be to try to straighten out my nose bridge as I have a protruding bone (as seen below) 
Somehow I am in a love/hate relationship with this bone as from the front this bone actually helps make my nose look sharper but from the side I didn't like how it looked... hence I couldn't decide if I wanted to remove it via surgery as I'm afraid I would prefer how my nose looked before hahahaha so thank god for fillers I can try them first and see how it will look like if my nose bridge is straight!
(front view) : nose looks sharp with protruding bone 
*skin is glowing from the facial I did before the fillers ^^ 0 makeup on in these photos!
(side view) : nose looks slightly hooked

The procedure:
So after detailed consultation and numbing on the treatment area, the procedure started! If you are wondering if it's painful.... well..... I wouldn't say painful but pretty uncomfortable? Comparing to my chin and cheeks the nose was really quite.an.experience! 
On a pain level I would rate it 3/10, as for discomfort, 8/10 ( >.< )
Nevertheless in total everything took about 15 minutes and very soon it was over~~~
So after the fillers your nose will be slightly... swollen. This is probably where you feel the fillers are too much and too high, I was skeptical at first, wondering if my bridge could be too high but I was assured that the swelling will come down by another 10-20% once it has settled down! 
And true enough weeks later.... I can say that I am truly in love in my nose fillers ^^
Just some recent photos after the fillers and as you can see my nose looks more defined with minimal contouring! 
For those who are wondering, these fillers are temporary and lasts up at least 6 months, the best part is you can always top up or reduce it up to your preference :)
