Once these two wavelengths are emitted together, they maximize the advantages of each laser thus improving the results in just one session. Depending on the area that was treated, healing can typically last 4-10 days.

These two wavelengths can either work separately or together to give the best result for each patient. With this ability, each laser treatment can be adjusted for each individual patient.

The collected blood is then placed in a centrifuge machine that separates the platelet-rich plasma from the other blood cells. Here in London Centre for Aesthetic Surgery Gulf, Drs. Maurizio and Roberto Viel use this for skin rejuvenation. They first apply an anaesthetic cream and wait for 30 minutes. Once 30 minutes has passed, they use a specialized dermapen needles to open the dermis. After which, they apply the collected platelet-rich plasma using the same needles. The treatment is almost pain-free. One effect immediately after the treatment is slight redness of the skin,  but this will resolve after a few hours.

After the treatment, you need to avoid getting the face wet for at least 8-12 hours as well as sun exposure for 48 hours. You also need to apply sun block when going out in the sun. For a few days, you will feel dryness on the treated areas. All you need to do is to apply a good moisturizer. You will then see a difference after a couple of weeks.

Its action primarily involves blocking the release of the acetylcholine from the presynaptic neuromuscular junction, thus temporarily paralyzing the affected muscles. Botox has demonstrated a good safety profile, is easy to administer, and is reversible with time. It has been used safely in humans since the early 1980s and has been approved by the Food and Drug Adminstration for cosmetic use in 2002.

The effects are usually seen 2 to 3 days after injection. The effect can lasts up to 3 to 6 months. Botox is mainly used for the treatment of glabellar fine lines, crow’s feet, smile lines, and horizontal neck lines, but it can also be used to treat migraine and excessive sweating known medically as hyperhidrosis.

The procedure will only take less than a couple of minutes. Dr. Maurizio and Dr. Roberto Viel will at first prepare the skin by cleaning it with an alcohol swab. They will then ask you to frown, smile, or relax, depending on the area or areas that you need the botox treatment.

After the treatment, it is best for you not to lie down or do any vigorous exercises for at least 4 hours after the treatment. This is to prevent the botox from going to other muscle areas.

COMMON NON-SURGICAL COSMETIC PROCEDURES| LCAS GULF | DUBAI

Over the years, we have placed an important role when it comes to looking younger. This is where cosmetic procedures come in. Cosmetic procedures can help your skin look younger and healthier. These treatments help reduce wrinkles, smoothen fine lines and improve skin texture. The following are the most common non-surgical cosmetic procedures done in our Dubai Healthcare City clinic.

  1. Botox Injections

Botulinum Toxin injection is by far the most popular when it comes to non-surgical treatment of wrinkles. Wrinkles are a result of aging, sun damage, and sometimes exposure to environmental factors. Botulinum toxin temporarily freezes the muscle causing the wrinkles to soften due to the muscle’s relaxed state. Botox will also help prevent the creation of wrinkles because it inhibits facial movements that can cause lines like frowning.

  1. Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers fill up the lines like the laugh lines and smile lines.  They are made of hyaluronic acids and help fill in these lines and creases, thus temporarily restoring a smoother, more youthful-looking appearance.  When injected beneath the skin, these dermal fillers will plump up creased and sunken areas of the face giving you a smoother skin texture and a youthful appearance.

  1. Dermamelan Depigmentation Mask Treatment

The Dermamelan Mask, also called the Depigmentation mask, works by blocking the enzyme that causes the pigmentation or discoloration. The Dermamelan mask will be applied by Dr. Maurizio or Dr. Roberto Viel and have to stay on the patient’s skin for eight to twelve hours. The patient will need to continue the treatment at home with the Dermamelan Home Kit for a period of three months. As for the results, most patients start seeing a difference after two to four weeks.

  1. Platelet-rich Plasma Treatment (PRP)

Platelet-rich plasma treatment is one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedures done in our clinic. Platelet-rich Plasma treatment is a type of mesotherapy where your own plasma is used to achieve a smoother skin texture and tone. This also acts in softening facial lines and wrinkles. Platelet-rich plasma therapy is completely non-toxic and hypoallergenic since it uses your own plasma.

  1. AQ Recovery Serum Mesotherapy

AQ Treatment is done using the Mesotherapy technique, wherein our doctors use a Dermapen to make tiny openings in the skin while applying the AQ Recovery Serum. This method activates the skin cells and ensures maximum absorption of the product so that the patient could get the full benefits of the treatment.

BOTOX TREATMENT FOR HYPERHIDROSIS | LCAS GULF | DUBAI

PATIENT’S REVIEW ON BOTOX TREATMENT FOR HYPERHIDROSIS

botox
BOTOX as HYPERHYDROSIS

In 2004, botox treatment (onabotulinum toxin A) has been approved and accepted by the U.S Food and Drug Administration for the use of primary hyperhidrosis in patients who have not found relief from antiperspirant. Several studies have also shown the effectiveness of botox treatment for hyperhidrosis in other parts of the body. While everyone sweats when they’re hot, exercising or feeling stress, people who have hyperhidrosis sweat heavily and sweat most of the time, even without the usual triggers and this may affect their daily life.

According to the International Hyperhidrosis Society, botox is scientifically proven to be “safe and effective treatment for hyperhidrosis of the armpits, hands and feet. Additional statistics from published research studies have shown that repeated treatment with botox is safe and effective for hyperhidrosis and consistently results in meaningful, long-lasting improvements in an excessive sweating patient’s symptoms, daily functioning, and quality of life.”  Sweating has an important thermoregulation function to our body and these localized body areas comprise only a small portion of the body’s sweat glands which has little significance with the regulation of the body.

In spite of this, some are still hesitant to seek medical intervention. For this reason, we, at London Centre for Aesthetic Surgery Gulf, formulated this question and answer for our patient who has done the botox as a hyperhidrosis treatment.

FACIAL REJUVENATION USING GROWTH FACTOR SERUM | LCAS GULF | DUBAI

Ageing is inevitable for the simple reason that it is unavoidable. Indeed, it is one of the reasons why not only women but also men are looking for ways to have a more youthful appearance. As a result of ageing, plus an unhealthy lifestyle and too much exposure to the sun, we notice a difference on our features most especially to our face. Wrinkles appear. Dryness noticed. Fine lines are seen. Under these circumstances, researchers and scientists found a way to have a younger looking appearance through facial rejuvenation using growth factor technology known as the AQ Recovery Serum.

Facial Rejuvenation Using Growth Factor Technology

AQ Recovery Serum is rich in natural growth factors (GF). These growth factors play an important role in renewing facial tissue and rejuvenating the skin. They have long been known as an effective treatment to facial wrinkles. The Recovery Serum is designed to enhance the skin’s natural process of regeneration and repair by stimulating collagen production, promoting healthy circulation, and increasing cellular renewal.

Medical research has found that GF can speed and improve healing when applied to areas of the human body damaged in surgery, burns, wounds, or accidents. The mechanism behind the benefits is facilitation of changes at the cellular level to revert damaged cells to younger state, healing the damaged skin in the process. Scientists also discovered that growth factor technology had the potential to reverse the cell aging process, fade scars, improve healing, and renew the hair follicles on the scalp to help people with thinning hair.

Here in our Dubai Healthcare City clinic, Dr. Maurizio and Dr. Roberto Viel use this growth factor technology for facial rejuvenation.

BOTULINUM TOXIN INJECTIONS | LCAS GULF | DUBAI

UNDERSTANDING ITS BENEFITS

Botulinum toxin, more commonly known for its brand name “botox”, has been used not only for anti-wrinkle treatment but also for its effectiveness for hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating. This contains a highly diluted form of the toxin and has been proven safe. Listed are some of the benefits of botulinum toxin injections.

The Viel Twin Brothers: Dr. Maurizio and Dr. Roberto Viel
  1. It was primarily used for strabismus. The Food and Drug Administration approved it in 1989 for this purpose.
  2. When it was later used to treat uncontrolled muscle spasms in the face, patients had fewer wrinkles in the skin overlying the treated muscle. Doctors started using Botox for cosmetic reasons in 1996, and the FDA approved this use in 2002.It was discovered that it could paralyze some muscles if used in small amounts. Thus, it is used primarily for aesthetic treatments for fine lines and wrinkles.
  3. As a treatment for excessive sweating. In 2004, the U.S. Food and drug approved the use of Botulinum toxin injections for the treatment of severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis in patients unable to obtain relief using antiperspirants.
  4. Botulinum injections has been approved by FDA in 2010 for the treatment of chronic migraine headache. A recent US study by Rami Burstein et al suggested that botulinum toxin inhibits pain in chronic migraine by reducing the expression of certain pain pathways involving nerve cells in the trigeminovascular system. This trigeminovascular system is a sensory pathway thought to play a key role in the headache phase of a migraine attack.

While we have enumerated some of the medical uses for the protein that makes up the Botulinum toxin injection, the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles are by far the most common application. Anyone who would like to smoothen his or her wrinkles through this treatment is potentially a candidate.

Here in our Dubai Healthcare City clinic, Dr. Maurizio and Dr. Roberto Viel use this treatment mainly for fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperhidrosis. The best way to find out is to speak with them.

AUTOLOGOUS ADIPOSE-DERIVED CELLS | LCAS GULF | DUBAI

AUTOLOGOUS ADIPOSE-DERIVED CELLS:

A Facial Rejuvenation Therapy

Research studies have found that adipose tissue is considered as a source of adipose-derived stem cells. They are easily obtained with little patient discomfort. These autologous adipose-derived cells have opened a window for clinical use in the repair, replacement and regeneration of cells, restoration of impaired function due to disease, trauma and aging.

These autologous adipose-derived cells are unique in such a way that they are extracted from your own fat, hence the name autologous. This procedure starts with the collection of a small amount of fat under local anesthesia by our surgeons, Drs. Maurizio and Roberto Viel. The collected fat is then sent for processing to a laboratory. This processing includes extraction and expansion of the stem cells. Furthermore, this creates your own personal supply of collagen-producing cells and growth factors which help correct the effects of skin aging.

After approximately 12 days, the expanded adipose-derived cells are injected into the superficial dermis with a special microscopic needle. Once the session has finished, it requires approximately 2-3 weeks for the gradual increase of the collagen and elastin to be noticeable, and you will see the changes usually in a month. The continued gradual improvements are seen at about 6 months to a year.

Here in Dubai, this treatment is available in our Dubai Healthcare City clinic. Dr. Maurizio and Dr. Roberto Viel primarily use this autologous adipose-derived cells treatment to improve the appearance of fine lines and skin texture.

BOTULINUM TOXIN INJECTIONS: SAY GOODBYE TO WRINKLES | DUBAI | LCAS GULF

botoxFINE LINES. CROW’S FEET. These are just  few unwanted occurrences we need to combat over time. They are the result of a combination of factors which may include depletion of collagen, damage caused by sun exposure and environmental factors. One important discovery is the use of Botulinum Toxin injections. Botulinum Toxin is the protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. It was first used as a treatment for facial spasms and blinking. It was discovered that using botulinum toxin injection blocks the signal from the brain to the nerve endings resulting to a temporary freezing of the muscles.

The procedure takes only about 15 minutes and no downtime. Doctors Maurizio and Roberto Viel are using the latest innovation when giving these injections. These needles are called “invisible needles” since they are very fine and patient would hardly feel any prick.

The effect of the botulinum toxin injections is usually apparent about over a week’s time. Eventually, the muscles will be completely “asleep” by two weeks. This treatment is temporary that is why frequency is done for a period of three to six months, however the results can last longer with repeated treatments. With this treatment, it is also important to note that the doctors have their standards when it comes to quantity in order to have a more natural outcome. In some cases, top up injections are required if there are still movements noted after ten to fourteen days.

Here in Dubai, botulinum toxin injection is available in our London Centre for Aesthetic Surgery Gulf clinic located in Dubai Healthcare City.
