Shanghai-based beauty center Zeta has recently been offering many stem cell beauty treatments to its customers. It has been said that injections of purified stem cells from the patient’s blood will increase the body’s ability to produce new cells that can combat wrinkles.

Among the center’s regularly visited guests are Hong Kong celebrities.

The Hong Kong branch of Zeta recently opened up a store in Sino Plaza, Causeway Bay. An ex-employee at Zeta revealed that the beauty center’s boss, the Hong Kong-born Cally Szeto (司徒婉雯), is friends with many Hong Kong celebrities, and often sponsor them with beauty treatments. Last year, the company has hired Yoyo Mung (蒙嘉慧) and Carman Lee (李若彤) as their spokespersons.

Cally has revealed through her Weibo that she is good friends with Joe Ma (馬德鐘), Candy Law (羅霖), Anne Heung (向海嵐), and Eddie Kwan (關禮傑), and these artists also appeared to have receive similar stem cell treatments.

Facial Treatment Gone Wrong?

Sudden Weekly noted that several Hong Kong artists have been looking younger and younger, and although that may be true, their facial treatments have become facial disasters.

Vivien Yeo (楊秀惠)’s right face is now bigger than her left.

Icy Wong’s (黃婉曼) face are beginning to look like hand-shaved noodles.

Fanny Sit (薛芷倫) now has huge, swollen lips like sausages.

William Hu (胡渭康) and his good friend Lam Lei (林利) admitted that they have received beauty injections on their faces.

    Artists will do anything to get ahead and think about consequences later when it is too late. Extreme case is “Siu Yum Yum”.

        This is Siu Yam Yam.

        http://www.lovehkfilm.com/people/siu_yam_yam.html. She won Best Supporting Actress in HKFA 2010.

        For a long time, people said she did plastic surgery and it gone wrong and her face became ugly. But, recently, she clarified that she didn’t do PS for beauty enhancement, but, because she has an accident on her face, so, need reconstruction surgery.

        Siu Yam Yam. My MD’s sister in law. N she use to be very pretty. But now.. it’s quite “different” from it use to be..

      Not sure if you all are talking about the same Siu yum yum but she is in her late 50’s or 60’s. She was active during the Shaw Brother’s era in the 70’s and 80’s. After the extensive surgeries, her facial features and appearance are bordering on hideous…

      Yea, it is sad what price celebs would pay for beauty and I don’t mean money only.

        Fear of losing wealth, fame and applause.

        Lack of self-confidence and inferior to others.

        Cosmetics companies are basically harping on “FEAR” to market their products.

    so misleading. why is yoyo mung’s picture there? she’s not even the main object of the article.

      I was wondering, too, why Yoyo Ming’s photo was in this article. I thought she was one of the people for stem cell injections.

        Isn’t she?

        If she’s a spokesperson, she is endorsing the product which means she used it.

    Another product Cosmetic Companies are selling are whitening cream.

    It’s a paradox that fair skin westerners would prefer to have tan skin tone and Asians would want to stuff their skin of oxygen and vitamin D to have a white skin.

    • HeTieShou replied:

      Now that you mention that, whitening cream reminds me of that lady in Thailand that used some kind of whitening cream that caused her skin to get permanently damaged. I saw it on the show “the Price of Beauty”. It was really sad and that lady’s skin lost all of the melanin that your skin needs to be healthy. Heard that her husband left her and her skin was permanently damaged so she would burn when she was in the sun… Very sad how in Thailand(and other countries too) who think that light skin is superior to darker skin… Very sad indeed…

        In the past, only ladies born into rich families could maintain their fair skin by being inside most of the time. Lower class women were generally laborers, farmers and so they had a darker skin tone. I suppose that’s why light skin is prized so much in Asian countries.

    The sad part will be the innocent public especially young teenagers who take these celebrities as their idol and role-model. They will imitate the celebs actions blindly.

      Some fans even went to the extreme such as taking cheap Plastic Surgery to look like their idol.

        Random note: some people even get surgery to make themselves look like Barbie dolls and anime characters. There’s a (European?) girl who had extensive surgery to replicate the look of Barbie; the photos of her – including her poses – are uncanny…

        I also agree with the above comment; that’s why celebrities should be responsible for their own actions and NOT lie.

    I am very disturbed these days by how people make fun on single woman in her 30s. Sometimes I just want to ask them to shut up and stop probing people’s personal lives.

    Why do people want to risk their lives in maintaining their beauty? Why is majority of such people female? Because of man or because of herself? If it is former, then dump the shallow minded man. But if it is latter, then why not?

      @Theresa,

      PPl who made fun of single women in their 30s are usually childish ppl as they didn’t realize that they will “too” turn old when their time comes. btw, agree with you too that they’re shallow.

    I thought wrinkles form due to the breakdown of collagen. Does having more cells help?

      I thought the same and was wondering how can having more stem cells help with retaining youth?? It is sad the price that celebs pay for beauty. As you get older, looks become less important and health is more important…

    • Lee replied:

      The stem cells are probably fibroblasts that secrete substances called GAGs and proteglycans that retain a lot of water and fill out depressions in the skin… aka Juvederm, but on a more permanent basis I guess.

    FOrget it, at least not for me! For the bold or chance taker/s. In clear conscience even for $$$$$ I would not endorse it![ Suppose I am a beauty. …. What if something goes wrong for the user? Will gnaw away at my conscience! ]
    Beauty is important. However, not everything. Conscience
    rules my life, I guess.

    Why can’t we all grow old gracefully? How much work can one do on their body? Other than wasting money and getting false hope, it serves much better use to give the money for charity.

      They’re actors. They have to look good. Not all can sleep 1 hour a day and look great and so they depend on such treatments which is fine. Just don’t go overboard.

        Agree with you Funn, they’re celebrities and they need to look good almost 24/7 because beauty is their selling product and money earning. Without beauty, they can’t have good life ;)
