Profhilo Singapore: Profhilo vs. Fillers. Which is better?

Profhilo and dermal fillers are both popular anti-ageing treatments offered at the Artisan Clinic. Interestingly, they both use a common component, hyaluronic acid, to produce those impressive results.

Even though they both help knock off a few years off your appearance, they work pretty differently. If you were to get dermal filler treatments, the injections would work by adding volume to, or sculpting a specific area, for example, your temples (which also lose volume as your face ages) and cheeks or even the eye bags, depending on your area of focus.

Ideally, it doesn’t spread to the surrounding area unless there is a complication. Therefore, a dermal filler injection will only help augment your natural facial structure to give you plumper and volumized skin and facial structures.

5 brands that might have flown under our fashion radars
Fashion aficionados this season are as gleeful as ever; their appetites satiated by dazzling lines from brands like Aijek, Lisa Von Tang and ELOHIM by Sabrina Goh. With 2019’s annual Singapore Fashion Week looming over us, the Lion City is gushing with critically acclaimed international and local brands alike. We lack, severely, in attention span for the creations of less established, up and coming couturiers. Today, we’ll take a quick breather from the hubbub of Singapore’s mainstream fashion battlefields to discuss 5 lesser known designer brands that may have fallen under most people’s radars. Vilry.co Established a year ago, Vilry.co is wasting no time in taking over the internet’s women’s fashion scene. Described by critics to be “classy” and “womanly”, Vilry.co’s centrepieces are many flowing, sweet dresses with a variety of sweetheart necklines and waist peplums to die for. For the more...

Henry is taking over luxury

Henry who?

The gardens of Trocadero are usually calm at night, glistening against the eternal glow of the Eiffel Tower. But on this rainy September night during Paris Fashion Week it is swathed in spotlight studded frenzy. The sky is magnified by the glow of a hundred, if not hundreds, of spotlights, all swaying in synchrony to the beat of the music. The air is electric as the soundtrack swells and swoons, theatrical and ethereal. Long legged models strut down the runway in Yves Saint Laurent’s signature smoking suits, reimagined for timeless modernity. After the runway presentation, twenty or so people stand precariously on a ledge at the Trocadero gardens, a hundred more or so behind them. The drop to the ground in front of them is perhaps 1.5 meters, but they probably don’t care - mostly students and millennials, they are all starstruck and obsessed with fashion and celebrities,...

How has the reputation of Botox changed around the years?

Before aesthetic treatments became vogue, even in the 1990s, Botox treatments were already a thing. Back then, the understanding surrounding Botox and other aesthetic treatments was far more narrow. It was purported as a treatment only for rich and vain ladies who had an unhealthy obsession with youth. The Artisan Clinic is an aesthetic clinic which offers Botox treatments in Singapore.

Nowadays, patients as young as 20 will already have gone for Botox treatments. Aesthetic procedures have become the norm rather than the exception and more and more youth are opting to get aesthetic procedures done at a young age. However, while the treatment has grown in popularity, many of the myths surrounding Botox still persist till today. In all honesty, many of these myths are overblown.

Avoid preparing

Yes, the point of this whole article is how to prepare for your child for school, but you don’t want to be overly anxious and prepare too soon. Some parents start talking about school months before school starts to prep their kids, but by the time school actually comes around, the child might feel overwhelmed, like this is a huge event. A tip is to talk about preschool in a casual and excitable manner about 2 to 3 weeks before class starts. For instance, if you drive by the school, you can say...

What to look for in a preschool in Singapore

While every stage of your child’s life is as exciting as can be, there is nothing that can be more overwhelming than when they are about to start preschool. This is the time when they start to interact with their environment by way of their thoughts, actions, emotions, and language. This is the time when they start to form words, are able to mimic actions, and learn how to respond to the various circumstances presented before them. Whatever the child is taught at this age may stick with them permanently, that is why you should consider enrolling them in a first-rate preschool. If you are residing in the north of Singapore, there are a few famous and reliable preschools in Admiralty such as First Steps Preschool @ Admiralty.

There are many preschools all over Singapore. An internet search alone will not necessarily give you...
