The Search for Beauty: MCU Beautitudes

The search for inner and outer beauty is an ongoing journey especially for this generation. In Korea and Japan, more than half of the population has at least undergone a procedure to alter or enhance their body or facial features. This trend is slowly catching on among Malaysians, according to Dr. David Low, one of the aesthetic doctors from MCU Beautitudes, Sunway Pyramid.


In Malaysia, a more common understanding of a beauty procedure usually means a plastic surgery, a liposuction, a painful procedure or a botox injection. There are more aesthetic clinics mushrooming in this country, signifying a higher demand for an aesthetic procedure that offers more than what was earlier mentioned.

MCU Beautitudes is the first aesthetic clinic to be opened in Sunway Pyramid and has attracted many people from all walks of life and most of them were first time walk-ins who braved through its doors with a promise of enhanced beauty with minimal discomfort and a safe procedure.


Types of Procedures


There are basically 2 main types of procedures at MCU Beautitudes. The first is a non-invasive procedure which means there are no penetration of objects to the skin during the procedure. The second procedure is called the minimally-invasive procedure which involves a penetration of objects to the skin which causes minimal discomfort during the procedure.

The reason why more patrons choose to visit aesthetic clinics rather than undergo a plastic surgery is because aesthetic clinics are relatively safer than the latter, involves less discomfort and has a much more rapid recovery rate.

Patrons who opt for aesthetic clinic are, of course, seeking to enhance their beauty and not to make drastic changes to their overall look. This could mean having a double eye-lid through a minimally-invasive procedure (injection) rather than going under the knife.

What’s Hot at MCU Beautitudes

“One of the most popular treatments in MCU Beautitudes here is the Double Suture and Twist (DST) procedure. Nowadays, patrons prefer coming by during lunch time and get a DST, a procedure that only takes about 30 minutes to 45 minutes, and return to work after that. It’s totally doable as the procedure is safe, with very minimal discomfort and only very slight swelling,” Dr. David added.

DST is an innovative procedure invented by Dr. Akhiro Minami, a renowned plastic surgeon in Japan. It is a scarless double eyelid creation technique that is reversible, should the patrons change their mind later on.

“This is popular in especially in an Asian country because based on what we hear from our patrons, those with bigger, double eye-lids appear brighter and more attentive. Most unfortunately, social discrimination in a stereotypical society is very real,” Dr. David added.

Full Sculpting

Another popular procedure by MCU Beautitudes is Full Sculpting or CoolSculpting. This technique is not only a scientifically proven procedure which eliminates 20 – 25% of the treated area but it is also one of the safest ways to eliminate fat deposits there.

“Most of us struggle to lose weight sometimes because some of our bulges contain fat cells which are resistant to diet and exercise. This method, the CoolSculpting, uses controlled cooling to target and crystallise the fat cells. The crystallised fat cells eventually die and get eliminated from the body,” said Dr. Low who added that patrons experience the difference after undergoing just one treatment at MCU Beautitudes in 2 weeks.

This method was developed by a renowned Harvard University scientist, Dieter Manstein, MD, PhD and R. Rox Anderson, MD.

Administration of Botox

Botox administration is popular among celebrities. A common conversation we will hear about botox is how botox, while eradicating wrinkles from the older celebrities, also causes the muscles to stiffen and thus, causing them unable to smile.

“Actually, that can happen when the injection is administered incorrectly on the wrong muscles. However, at MCU Beautitudes, we know exactly which muscle to inject, causing the muscle to relax instead of stiffening,” Dr. Low added.

Why MCU Beautitudes?

MCU Beautitudes is a perfect place to go to for those who wants to get a quick beauty fix through a safe, minimally uncomfortable procedure. The changes may be subtle but it significantly make a difference to your overall look and not only alters its patron’s well being, but also boost their self confidence. On top of that, if they change their mind, they can always return and reverse the fix.

So, if you are thinking of giving it a go, call MCU Beautitudes at 03-5638 9366 for an appointment.
