The Power of Needle

Microneedling is one of the easiest forms of Collagen Introduction Therapy. The compact device is comprised of small tiny microscopic stainless steel needles used to pierce the upper layers of skin, depending on the needle used.


  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scarring
  • Scarring
  • Stretch marks
  • Skin texture and tone
  • Enlarged pores
  • Hair loss or thinning

There is nothing more exciting than clearing up break outs or acne but the scars left behind can be devastating… Luckily there is help; Microneedling is the treatment you need to know about.

Why will it help reduce the appearance of scars?

When a scar or mark is formed on the skin the collagen in that area is damaged, which causes the scar. The only way to stimulate new collagen is by Collagen Induction Therapy to replace damaged Collagen by:

  • Improves ageing skin
  • Improves the appearance of large pores
  • Improves appearance of pigmentation
  • Post acne scarring is improved
  • Sun damaged skin is improved
  • Any scarring or stretch mark can be improved

The skin’s natural production of collagen is not a constant or steady supply and as we age starts to slow and deplete. This can cause the skin to develop fine lines, wrinkles, more prominent scarring and not react or heal to its full potential.

Microneedling offers nature a “helping hand” by enhancing collagen production and the penetration of skincare concentrates.

The device is applied on the surface of the skin and creates small perforations; as a result the body’s automatic healing mechanism kicks in, believing there is a wound to heal. The healing response of the body stimulates the right environment for excess collagen and elastin to be produced.

By combining the procedure with the correct skincare concentrates it will allow the patient to see maximum results.

Drink more water

Since childhood your mum will tell drinking water is good for you. The benefits of taking in some H20 include preventing dehydration and keeping body fluids maintained. Out of these nutrients, your body uses water to help heal itself from damage or disease and to maintain youthfulness and help carry you into old age in health. As simple as it seems, there are amazing health and beauty benefits of drinking water. Let’s start:


Picking water over a juice or soda water will help you drop some unwanted pounds. Plus, water makes you feel full, so you’re less likely to snack if you keep your body hydrated.


Drinking water builds healthy muscle because it carries oxygen to the cells that build and strengthen muscle tissue. Water helps to make the muscles stronger – An imbalance of electrolytes leads to discomfort, such as muscle fatigue. Water helps maintain this proper balance needed to strengthen muscles.


Water lubricates the cartilage and joints for healthy joint movement. Back pain and rheumatoid joint pain has been shown to be relieved with proper water intake. Picture a hydraulic lift, and you get a pretty good visionary pictures of how water supports the spine. Water is stored in the discs cores within the spine to create a hydraulic property to support spinal joints and help to support upper body weight.

Drinking water prevents constipation by providing the proper amount of fluids to the gastrointestinal tract. Drinking water maintains a balance of fluids in our body to aid in digestion, circulation, transfer and absorption of nutrients, maintaining a proper body temperature, and to create saliva.


Water is a natural stress reliever. Even the sound of rushing waves or running water triggers a soothing response in the body and lowers stress.


Water boosts mood and brain power. It is estimated that the brain makes up only about 1/50 of the entire weight of the body, but uses 1/20 of the blood supply. Drinking water helps you think clearly to learn as it increases cognitive function because it helps to deliver the oxygen the brain needs. Studies have shown that drinking 8 to 10 cups of water a day improves brain performance by as much as 30 percent. Additionally, drinking water supports proper nerve function, making it easier for the brain and the nervous system to communicate.


Drinking a bottle of water a day won’t erase wrinkles, but by keeping your skin hydrated it’s less likely to dry out and sag. Water also helps bring out the natural glow in your skin, which means a healthier complexion.

The good news is you don’t have to drink bottles upon bottles of water everyday. A lot of the food you consume, especially fruits and vegetables, are a good source of water too.


Water helps to lessen the burden on your kidneys and liver to flush out toxins and other waste products, like uric and lactic acid, from your body


Hydrating your skin from the inside out isn’t an excuse to skip topical moisturizers. After all, the water you drink may not affect your outermost layers of skin, the ones that get dried out from skin cleansers, says Few. Moisturizing your skin both internally and externally is a critical combination for healthy, beautiful skin.

Is Your Anti Ageing Skin Care Working?

The battle against ageing is won when you’re diligent with your skincare routine.

This is what we know: Keeping a healthy diet, a regular exercise routine and finding the right products for your skin. But how can you tell if your new anti-ageing routine is working, apart from just feeling that your skin looks younger or firmer?


This is the few steps you can try:

Snap the skin under your eyes by lightly pinching it. Do it lightly, you don’t want to develop more fine lines and wrinkles in the process. Check for lines forming right above your cheek, just under where you’re pinching. It’s an indicator of how dehydrated your skin is. If you see lots of them, it’s time to pile on the hydrating creams or serums or other alternative which works beautifully for this.


Pinch your cheeks right under the cheekbone. Full and fleshy cheeks are a sign of skin that’s firm and youthful. Those with thinner skin around the cheeks should focus on boosting collagen content and preventing its degradation in your skin by upping your intake of antioxidants and using a good sunscreen. Fine lines around the cheeks are also a telltale sign of skin dehydration, so always remember to keep it moisture.

The area around the mouth and under the nose gets dry easily. So pout your lips in front of a mirror, then relax. Watch out for vertical lines that are still present between the nose and upper lips. The principle here is the same as the cheeks, more lines, means the need for more wrinkle reducing products to help boost collagen in the skin.

It’s so easy, Just snap, pinch and pout, but don’t be too forceful or you’ll end up creating more wrinkles in the process! If you wish to find about other alternative way, you can contact us to see how we can help you here.


We all love silky hair, and makeup that will stay put even when we work up a sweat. The synthetic ingredient that’s responsible for those results is usually silicone. First introduced to beauty products in the 1950s, silicones are derived from a natural product called silica, but undergo extensive chemical processing before being added to our beauty products such as shampoos, conditioners & cosmetic products etc.
Silicones go by different names where dimethicone is one of the best-known and are modified into numerous different formulas in order to perform the specific role expected of them—waterproofing, retaining moisture, adhering colour pigments, protecting our hair and imparting smoothness, and making the application of skincare products feel silky—no tugging on the skin as it is spread on, and no oily, sticky feeling. They give our deodorants that velvety feel, allowing them to dry quickly, and they keep water-resistant sunscreens on our skin, even when we sweat or get wet.

What is Dimethicone?

Dimethicone is what the chemists like to call a silicon-based polymer—”polymer” meaning it’s a large molecule made up of several smaller units bonded together. Simply put, it’s a silicon oil, man-made in the laboratory and used in personal care products as an anti-foaming agent, skin protectant, and skin and hair conditioner.

Manufacturers like it because it makes products easily spreadable, so you get that feeling of the lotion or cream gliding over your skin, another way to describe is, it helps the product to spread as smooth as butter.  Dimethicone also helps form a protective barrier on the skin, and can fill in the fine lines and wrinkles on the face, which is why it’s often used in makeup primers.

Is it safe?

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved its use as a skin protectant ingredient in over-the-counter drug products. Furthermore, the Cosmetic Ingredient review (CIR) Expert Panel reviewed the data surrounding dimethicone, and assessed it as safe to use in personal care products. They determined that because of the large molecular weight of silicone based polymers such as dimethicone, it would be very unlikely for it to penetrate past the surface of the skin.

How Dimethicone affect your skin?

That artificial coating which caused by Dimethicone caused several issues:

  • It traps everything under it, including bacteria, sebum, and impurities which could lead to increased breakouts and blackheads.
  • The coating action actually prevents the skin from performing its normal activities for example sweating, temperature regulating, sloughing off dead skin cells, etc.
  • Prolonged exposure to dimethicone can actually increase skin irritation, due to the coating property and because dimethicone is listed as a possible skin and eye irritant.
  • Those with sensitive or reactive skin are at higher risk of an allergic reaction to dimethicone too.

These type of ingredients can actually exacerbate skin aging, here’s the reason:

  • You’re inhibiting skin’s natural processes.
  • You’re creating a dependency on the coating product, disrupting the skin’s own hydrating processes which in the end increases dryness, making fine lines and wrinkles more noticeable.
  • The coating properties may increase breakouts, particularly if you’re susceptible to acne, which will lead to scars and dull looking skin.
  • These ingredients have no benefit in boosting the health and vitality of the skin, thus letting aging take its toll.

What to do?

REMEMBER, double cleansing! This is very very important. Please do not expect any facial cleanser can do the job. Firstly you have to remove all make ups or sunscreen on your face using make up removal, preferably lotion which is liquid type. Then only wash your face with facial cleanser. This is why we called, double cleansing, put in mind too, do not overdo.

Let your skin rest, put on some calming & moisturizing mask. We find out a lot of our patients skip the step of applying toner before they apply the moisturizer on. If you want your skin to be healthy and radiant, never ever skip any step.

Melasma shows up as brown spots or splotches on the forehead, cheeks, jaw line or upper lip. Melasma is essentially too much dark pigment. That pigment has been triggered by hormones and/or sun. Melasma can appear when a woman’s hormones change, whether through pregnancy, oral contraceptives, or hormone replacement therapy after menopause. Women of color are prone to melasma, and it is a significant problem for many. But people of any skin type can get melasma.

Once melasma has gotten started, for example during a pregnancy, it may become very difficult to treat afterwards. Also, it tends to become worse with subsequent pregnancies, particularly if the pregnancy is during the summer. If you do get melasma during the pregnancy, chances are it will resolve after delivery. But in a small percentage of women it gets worse over time and with exposure to sunlight.

To Treat Melasma

If you have melasma from hormones or prior pregnancies, please seek advice from your dermatologist first. Melasma can be difficult to treat.

(a) Sun block and Sun Protection
This is the most essential part of any treatment regimen for melasma, every single day, even cloudy days & indoors. The use of a broad spectrum sun screen that contains a physical blocking agent for example zinc or titanium dioxide.

(b) Double Protect – Wear Sun Protective Clothing

If your melasma is bad, wear long-sleeved shirts and pants and wide-brimmed hats.

(c) Stay out of the sun in the mid-day

(d) Topical Products
Because melasma is a disorder of pigmentation, topical products that block the process of pigment production are helpful in the treatment of melasma. Pigment production is a complex process and there are many products that act at different steps in this process. No one product is 100% successful at preventing and treating pigment so often multiple different products are used as they all work at different steps in the process.

(e) Hydroquinone
Hydroquinone (HQ) is thought to improve pigment by inhibition of tryosinase, an enzyme critical for pigment production. It has been in use for over 50 years and has a long and well documented history of safety and efficacy in the treatment of pigment.

(f) Retinoids
Retinoic acid and its derivatives (Retin-A, tretinoin, retinol, adapalene, tazaratene) have been shown to reduce the pigment of melasma and sun damage. They act by stimulating skin cell or keratinocyte turnover, decreasing transfer of pigment to skin cells and enhancing penetration of other active ingredients. Additionally, retinoids are an essential part of an anti-aging skin care regimen as they act to block the breakdown of collagen in the skin upon sun exposure.

(g) Ascorbic Acid or Vitamin C
In addition to being a powerful antioxidant, Vitamin C in skin serums and creams can block copper where it interacts with tyrosinase. Antioxidants are a critical part of any anti-aging program as they prevent oxidative injury to the skin with sun exposure.

(h) Topical agents

Licorice extract, soy, resveratrol, bearberry extract, emblica extract.

(i) Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) peels

Dermatologists have been using TCA peels, a close cousin to vinegar, to do chemical peeling for at least twenty years. Some dermatologists, in fact, still prefer TCA peels to any other modality for treating melasma, usually in combination with prescription creams. TCA peels are excellent and safe in the hands of an experienced dermatologist. This is a good option, particularly if you have severe melasma. Such procedure should only be performed by certified doctors.

(j) Lasers
– Effective, safe & FDA approved. You may contact Rachel Chew Clinic to enquire more.

Why You Should Use Skin Care Serum?

Confused by serums? Do not panic, many wonder what exactly a serum does for skin, as well as what benefit they have versus any other product in your routine. If you haven’t added one to your routine yet, we’ll help you understand why they’re worth considering; and if you use one now but aren’t sure if you should continue, these tips will explain why you should keep using it!

The Anti-Aging Superstars of Your Skin-Care Routine

While it’s true that every product in your routine should contain a skin-pleasing array of antioxidants and cell-communicating ingredients, you should have higher expectations of your serums. This is because the best serums are concentrated with anti-aging ingredients there just simply isn’t as much room for in a moisturizer.

Serums differ from moisturisers in that they don’t “make room” for traditional emollients or thickeners; these are the ingredients that create a lotion or rich cream texture. Likewise, serums won’t contain sunscreen actives like a daytime moisturizer would. Instead, serums use that extra space to pack in other beneficial ingredients or even more antioxidants than any other product in your routine.

A serum won’t replace your day or night moisturizer, but they will boost your anti-aging results and overall skin health when used morning and evening. Exception: If you have oily skin (and thus don’t need extra moisture), a well-formulated serum may work well as a double-duty product that replaces your night moisturiser!

Serums Have Greater Anti-Aging Benefits the Longer You Use Them

Finding a good serum is akin to starting a long-term relationship. The real benefits come from sticking with your serum day in and day out. While you will likely see some improvements right away as their antioxidant-rich formula soothes redness and brightens skin, over the long term you’ll see signs of damage fade and skin will look and feel healthier and firmer!

Like interpersonal relationships, however, it’s important to be skeptical of superficial serums! By “superficial”, we mean serums that are made up of trendy anti-aging ingredients that don’t have any legitimate research behind them and won’t do much more than waste your money and time.

Instead, look to serums with the anti-aging ingredients that are proven effective based on a large number of independent, peer-reviewed research. Such substances include potent, stable antioxidants and cell-communicating ingredients.

You Are Never Be Too Young to Start Using a Serum

It’s common knowledge that eating a balanced diet and exercising keeps your body healthier and younger-acting as you age. With that in mind, would it make sense to wait until you are unhealthy and in your 50s or 60s to start a healthier lifestyle? Not at all!! And the same is true when it comes to anti-aging for your skin!

Start using products loaded with these types of impressive ingredients before signs of damage occur and you’ll be on track for a more even complexion and firmer, healthier skin as you age. Your skin never gets used to these types of ingredients, just like your body never gets used to eating healthy foods.

Of course, these ingredients do work even after skin damage starts showing up, but without question, sooner is better than later! Don’t wait till too late.

Serums Can Target Specific Concerns

Brown spots from too many days in the sun or post-breakout red marks require treatment combinations that prevent and repair. Serums can play a critical role in fighting these concerns by helping to impede damage that can prolong the life of such discolorations, and they’ll also help skin repair itself so it can heal faster.

Of course, to keep discolorations from getting worse, you’ll need to keep your skin protected by using a broad-spectrum sunscreen every day. We’re sure you want brown spots gone today, but be patient with your serum and treatment routine. Just as it took time for those fine lines and sun damage to develop, it will take time for your serum to repair them; most can expect results in 4–12 weeks.
