I am a 46 year old stay-at-home mom with 2 kids. As I have no helper, I have to do the housework myself daily, including cleaning and washing the clothes which takes a toll on my hands. I noticed that my hands were becoming really dry and wrinkled, with lots of fine lines due to the loss of collagen and elastin. Even the tendons became obvious. I still remember vividly a conversation I had with my youngest boy, who is 7. He said, "Mummy, why do your hands look like the drawing of the witches' hands in my story book?"
I was devastated. It may sound like a small issue, but to me, it felt like I sacrificed so much for my family only to receive mean and hurtful remarks. I had to do something. So, I searched for hand treatments on Google and found The Artisan Clinic. I saw that they have tons of fantastic reviews about their doctors and courteous staff and so I went down for a consultation since I had nothing to lose.
At the consultation, I met Dr. Isaac Wong who took a look at my hands and recommended me some options. I can't remember all of them but I went for the latest one called Sunekos. Apparently, it's the latest injectable hyaluronic acid and amino acids treatment. The treatment involves just one jab per hand; nothing complicated that involves much commitment at all.
Dr. Isaac's skills in using the cannula is really commendable too, I have to say he's very good at using the needle. Apparently he's also the trainer for Sunekos, which explains his skills! I was also told that Sunekos is only available at a few selected premium clinics in Singapore, so I'm guessing demand at these clinics for Sukenos should be high. I recommend calling up before you go down — at least for Artisan because the clinic can get quite packed.
In terms of results, needless to say, I am extremely pleased. Just after one session I saw immediate hydration and my hands felt less dry and more supple. Here's a picture of my hands after four sessions (one course of treatment requires four sessions). I'm so happy! No more witch hands!
I highly recommend Dr Isaac Wong and his team of nurses at The Artisan Clinic in Paragon Medical, they are all so friendly and nice. I will definitely be back for more treatments!
