I’m not too crazy about the idea of cosmetic surgery or whatever procedure that requires you to do more than to slab on moisturizer and whitening cream on your face. My perception about aesthetic industry has since been altered upon taking up a freelance job with Cosmetic Surgery & Beauty (Malaysia's edition) magazine a few months back.
I was at first hesitant but decided to challenge myself into doing it. So here I am currently working on the third issue since joining the team. So far, I’ve done about ten features and advertorials on procedures and products like V lift thread, laser machines and whitening solutions.
Not bad huh?
I’ve discovered that some people (myself included) need a little more than just the usual 3-step skin care regimen to get the desired result of perfect skin and great facial features. We know how procedures like face-lift, Botox injection, face reshaping and laser hair removal are quite common among celebrities and those in fashion/ entertainment line. I do feel the pressure sometimes being surrounded by people who are all very concerned about their looks and writing about beauty products when I am still struggling to improve my own skin condition.
Thanks for coming Audrey! She will be representing Malaysia in Poland for Miss Supranational 2014
That is why on top of writing for the magazine, I try my best to learn more about aesthetic procedure and all the goods that it has to offer. TMC Medi-Wellness in Publika Solaris Dutamas is perhaps my first step into this unknown territory. The newly opened clinic has recently organized a special event for media and bloggers. I decided to invite my friend Wafi and blogger Audrey Pui Yan whom I later discovered is the recently crowned Miss Supranational Malaysia 2014. She obviously not in dire need of any aesthetic procedure…
TMC Medi-Wellness Clinic with its in-house aesthetician Dr. Lashela, offers more than just standard aesthetic procedures mentioned above. It also focuses on overall well-being (hence the name) from regular check-up and cellular therapy to weight management and other treatments based on the patient’s need.

Treatments like fillers and Botox injection are two very popular ‘lunchtime procedures’ which really take just a few minutes to be completed. You can really get them done during your office lunch break since the pain level is very minimal and there is no scarring involved. I actually witnessed these two procedures being conducted at the special event and was taken aback by how simple and non-invasive there are. I was so convinced that I’ve decided to experience it myself!

I’ll be getting my first complimentary laser skin treatment at TMC Medi-Wellness Clinic very soon and will document the journey here on Fash-un-able. According to Steve Fong who is the Operations & Business Development Strategist of the clinic, my face will require three separate treatments to get rid of the old scars and blemishes. Let’s just give this a try and maybe this time I will get the perfect skin that I’ve always wanted.
