Kim supposedly became taller during Singapore summit

Kim supposedly became taller during Singapore summit

There was a dramatic political power-play over the week with two of the world’s most attention-grabbing (or notorious) leaders negotiating the denuclearisation of North Korea. State media across the globe has shifted massive attention to this event that was held in Singapore, scrutinising every out-of-the-norm observations between Big Don (Donald Trump) and North Korean dictator-leader, Kim Jong Un.

Observers were so sharp to speculate that Kim have superimposed his physical stature for this event. Despite being reportedly 20cm shorter than Trump, North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un did not appear as short as how most have estimated.

Today we are going to explore:
– Did Kim superimpose his height by wearing high-heeled shoes?
– Was Kim feeling insecure about being shorter than Trump? (being called short and fat in Trump’s tweet)
– What else did Kim do during the summit to maintain his image?

Kim’s superimposed height

As we can see in the two pictures above, the height difference between both Kim and Trump is inconsistent. On the right, Kim appears shorter (hair is of the same level as Trump’s nose) while the photo on the left shows that Kim’s height has increased.

The photo below suggests that Kim has worn baggy trousers to hide the supposedly high-heeled shoes:

Does Kim has an insecurity towards his body image, which prompted his superimposed height?

Trump, known for his notorious behaviour has gone all the way out to fire personal attacks at his then political enemy, Kim Jong Un. Being one of the world’s most attention-grabbing political leaders and international figure, these remarks have certainly made an impact on the North Korean dictator’s self-esteem.

Beauty Trends in 2018 To Look Out For

In 2017 we saw the rise of SkinBoosters treatment and bio-stimulating dermal fillers such as Ellanse. And now with weeks into 2018, we saw some shift in beauty trends. While we saw some medical treatments surge in popularity in the beginning of 2018, there were also some treatments that visibly became less popular over the last few months. We speak to one of the most sought-after aesthetic doctors in Singapore, Dr. Siew Tuck Wah, to tell us more about what he believes to be the next big trends for 2018 and what makes them so special.

1. Rejuran Skin Healer / PDRN Skin Therapy

Commonly referred to as Rejuran Healer, PDRN Therapy, Miracle Healer Injection, the content of Rejuran Healer is made of biological molecules called polynucleotides. They are made of nucleotides bonded together. Some people many find the term ‘nucleotides’
familiar, because they are the basic units that form the DNA. The DNA extract in Rejuran or PDRN Therapy is obtained from a fish source, typically salmon. Salmon DNA has been used by doctors to treat wounds and promote skin healing for several years. In recent times, scientists have made slight changes to the formula for the use on the face for anti-aging purposes. The doctor uses a micro-needle to administer small doses of Rejuran Healer under the skin to promote skin renewal and improve overall skin texture. People who have undergone this treatment have raved about the remarkable results including smaller pores, less visible fine lines and wrinkles and improved acne scars.

2. Dual Yellow Laser Treatment

Unlike other conventional laser treatments, Dual Yellow Laser is specially designed to penetrate deep into the skin without breaking the skin surface. Relying on copper bromide based laser technology, Dual Yellow Laser offers multi- wavelength capability for different types of skin conditions. It is the gold standard for treating several skin abnormalities such as stubborn acne, bulky or vascular lesions, recurring melasma, and other severe pigmentation. Besides treating skin conditions, Dual Yellow Laser is also effective for general skin rejuvenation to reduce appearance of fine lines and for immediate skin brightening. Another unique function of Dual Yellow Laser is its capability to treat dark eye circles by breaking down the dark pigments under the eyes Being able to deliver remarkable results without any downtime, Dual Yellow Laser has naturally taken center stage of anti-aging treatment since the beginning of 2018.

3. Dysport Facelift Treatment

Dysport Facelift Treatment creates a natural, yet visible lift with almost no downtime for the patient. Using botulinum toxin to subtly lift saggy skin is a new concept devised by doctors to lift and tighten the skin non-surgically. Botulinum toxin is often used by doctors to relax overactive muscles for treating various conditions. In this case, a non-surgical facelift can be achieved by injecting Dysport into the superficial layers of the skin instead of the muscles. The treatment causes enlarged pores to constrict. After the treatment, the skin becomes firmer, pulling excess skin upwards to produce a subtle lift to the face. The effects continue to improve over the next few days as Dysport dissipates into the deeper muscles to help them relax and reduce wrinkles. At the same time, the treatment also helps to stimulate collagen production so that the skin on the face remains elastic and firm. Dr. Siew is the Medical Director and co-founder of Radium Medical Aesthetics.

Radium Medical Aesthetics offers a wide range of customized medical treatments to enhance your anti-aging journey, making your skincare routine a sensorial ritual that you look forward to every day. It is conveniently located at #03-326 Suntec City Mall, Tel: 6837 0507. For more information, visit

5 Solutions To Help You Look Younger Than Your Actual Age

5 Solutions To Help You Look Younger Than Your Actual Age

In this current day and age where youth is the most precious thing in the world, we will try to do anything to look young – men and women alike. Large skincare companies are leveraging on the fear of aging in people to build successful billion-dollar empires by selling ridiculously priced anti-aging creams.

Even though these expensive skin care creams are often marketed with claims that they will make people look younger, truth is, outcome of these topical skin care creams are modest at best.

We sit down with one of the most sought-after medical aesthetic doctors in Singapore to identify some non-surgical anti-aging treatments that actually work, instead of relying on skin care products that are delusive and exorbitant.

1) Non-Surgical Skin Lifting Treatments

Just over a decade ago, when people talk about looking younger, the only option was to undergo a surgical facelift. Back in those days, a surgical facelift was a rather major procedure which had elements of surgical risks. In addition, results were often unnatural as the skin was pulled back too tight.

Thanks to the advanced medical technologies, doctors have devised non-surgical skin lifting treatments for facial rejuvenation. Using dissolvable threads lined with anchors, doctors carefully place these threads under the skin using a fine needle. After the 40-minute procedure, your skin will be visibly lifted as the anchors reposition them higher to where they once were. The two most common non-surgical thread lift treatments are Silhouette

2) Soft Thread Lift and PDO Thread Lift.


A less invasive option is to use high intensity focused ultrasound to heat up the deep layers of the skin to induce collagen production. Over the next few months after the treatment, the skin will gradually tighten and lift the saggy skin. This treatment is often offered as Ultherapy or HIFU treatment in Singapore.

3) Laser Treatments for Brighter, Fairer Skin

Skin discoloration can occur in the form of age spots, freckles, or melasma in older people. The visible appearance of pigmentation can add several years to your look by making you look dull and unattractive.

With more than ten years of experience seeing patients with pigmentation issues, Dr. Siew put together an effective pigmentation treatment that is highly acclaimed by his patients. Called the Skin Illumination Program, it is a 5-session program that consists of not one but four different laser treatments to target different types of pigments. Depending on what treatment is needed, each session can be packed with Dual Yellow Laser, Skin Brightening Laser, LASEMD Skin Perfecting Laser, or Ruvy Touch Pigment Laser.

4) Liquid Facelift with Dermal Fillers

As we age, we lose hyaluronic acid that is naturally found in our skin. Hyaluronic acid is an important component for hydration and moisture retention. Skin starts to lose hyaluronic acid as early as mid-20s. The skin sags and fine lines start to appear on the face as we age, revealing your real age to the world. This can be easily addressed by replenishing the loss moisture with dermal fillers. Dermal filler in Singapore is a very popular non-surgical way to rehydrate and rejuvenate the skin via a series of microinjections. Depending on the severity of the skin condition and the result you want to achieve, the doctor may recommend you to undergo a course of 3-4 treatments.

Be amazed by the restoration of youthful skin with a brighter, dewy and radiant complexion after every session of dermal filler treatment.

5) Laser Treatment for a Smoother Complexion

People tend to see bigger pores, crepey skin, and fine lines because of intrinsic aging. Scars and lacklustre skin texture can also make you look weather-beaten and tired. Give your complexion a boost with our Skin Restoration Program that consists of 5 sessions of CO2 Skin Resurfacing Laser treatment, followed by a LED Red Light treatment to sooth the redness. eCO2 Skin Resurfacing Laser treatment delivers deep dermal benefits which includes stimulation of collagen and improvement in overall skin texture and elasticity.

At Radium Medical Aesthetics, we recognize that everyone’s skin is unique and therefore requires personalized care. We employ a very customized treatment program to address your beauty concerns and recommend the best treatment program that will benefit you most based on your budget.
