Dermal Fillers: Hyaluronic Acid (HA)| Dr Maurizio and Dr Roberto Viel | DUBAI | LCAS GULF

DERMAL FILLERS DUBAI

As we age, loss of volume and changes in the skin occur. Lines, wrinkles, and dull skin may also be visible. The growing demand for treatments to slow down, much less hinder, the ageing process has contributed to doctors and researchers in discovering improved cosmetic treatment modalities. One of this treatment is through the injection of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers to plump the skin and thereby lessening the appearance of lines.

There are several types of dermal fillers. However, this topic will specifically discuss the hyaluronic acid dermal fillers.

  1. What is Hyaluronic Acid?

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a naturally occurring component in the skin. It provides volume and mechanical support to the tissues. In addition, it forms a fluid matrix in which collagen and elastin are firmly enveloped.

  1. Why is Hyaluronic Acid important?

HA is abundant in the lower part of the epidermis and provides mechanical support to the tissues. Importantly, HA holds unto moisture and helps provide fullness and radiance to the skin. With ageing, there is a decline in dermal components including HA which results in changes in aged skin such as decreased turgidity, increased wrinkling, and altered elasticity. Restoring HA levels can help reduce signs of ageing.

  1. Why Hyaluronic Acid Dermal Fillers?

The unique properties of HA fillers make them ideally suited for soft tissue augmentation. Once injected HA fillers “fill” spaces and it is due to this filling effect that provides correction of folds, wrinkles and restores volume.

  1. What are the potential areas of use for HA fillers?

HA dermal fillers are used in several areas which include forehead wrinkles, frown lines, cheeks, marionette lines, smile lines, lips, chin, and pre-jowl.

  1. Is the injection painful?

Like any minimally-invasive treatments, minimal pain will be felt when the needle is inserted. The doctor may apply a local anaesthetic cream half an hour before or he can inject a local anaesthetic to numb the area before the treatment.

  1. How long will the HA filler last?

HA filler is not permanent and will eventually be absorbed by the body. The effects of  HA filler typically last for 6-18 months. Various factors, such as the amount of filler used, patient metabolism, and mobility of the treated area, may also influence the longevity of results.

The number of HA fillers has increased in the past decade and innovation continues. In many cases, a range of products is available for each brand, each with their own specific properties making them suitable for a certain application.

PRP: Facial Rejuvenation

Dermal Fillers in DubaiPlatelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment, also known as “Dracula or vampire” treatment is an effective minimally-invasive treatment to rejuvenate the skin especially here in Dubai where the scorching summer heat can greatly damage our skin.

THE PROCEDURE

Platelet-rich plasma treatment starts off by collecting your blood from a vein, usually in the arm. The collected blood will then be placed in a centrifuge and will be spin to separate the plasma from the other components of the blood (red blood cells). This plasma is a yellowish fluid that is rich in growth factors and platelets which helps in collagen production. The plasma is then applied to the skin through small tiny punctures made by dermapen.

IS IT PAINFUL

The treatment is well tolerated since a numbing cream will be applied half an hour before the procedure. There might be some sensitive spots (sensitive, nose, lips) where you might feel discomfort.

AFTER THE PROCEDURE

The most usual side effects after the treatment will be redness, tiny bruising and burning sensation which will all gradually lessen in 24 hours.

AFTERCARE

Washing of the face can be done after 12 hours. During the healing period, moisturizers can help with the dryness and tightness on the face. A sunblock is mandatory after the treatment to prevent any darkening of the skin. It is best to avoid direct sunlight for a month.

It is recommended to have two to three PRP facial treatment annually to maintain the results.

Botox injections in Dubai with Drs. Maurizio and Roberto Viel

Botulinum toxin injection is an effective way to lessen the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It has also been used to treat excessive sweating on the armpits, hands, and feet as well as a treatment for migraine.

Botulinum toxin injection primarily freezes the muscles thereby softening the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The procedure will usually take only about 15 minutes. The effect can be visible after 2 to 3 days, but maximum benefit typically occurs 7 to 10 days after injection. The usual effect will last from 3 to 6 months.

There are a few aftercare instructions needed to be followed after botulinum toxin injections. One is to avoid massaging or touching the treated area for at least 4 to 6 hours after the injection. Secondly, avoid working out or do any strenuous activities for at least 24 hours. Last is to not lie down facing downward for at last 4 to 6 hours.

Botox Treatment for Sweaty Armpits

Botulinum Toxin Injection for Sweaty Armpits

Axillary hyperhidrosis or simply excessive sweating can be a serious issue especially if it interferes with daily activities. There are a few factors that contribute to excessive sweating, like metabolic, neurological, psychiatric, or endocrine to name a few. However, the exact cause is unknown apart from a clear genetic background.

For those who still experience excessive sweating despite all effort in using over the counter antiperspirants, a botulinum toxin injection is the option. 

HOW DOES BOTULINUM TOXIN INJECTION STOP EXCESSIVE SWEATING

Botulinum toxin blocks the release of a chemical from nerve fibres that stimulate the release of sweat from the sweat glands. This causes a localised, long-lasting but reversible effect of sweating.

DO I NEED REPEATED SESSIONS

Effect of the injections can vary from patient to patient. However, multiple sessions may be required to achieve greater efficacy.

HOW LONG DOES IT LAST

This may also vary from patient to patient. According to one study done in Europe, an average reduction in sweat production was achieved at 83.5%. The average effect of the botulinum toxin injection was about 7 months after a single treatment. Nearly a third of the patients only did one injection and lasted for at least 16 months.

There are also few studies that were done which resulted in a significant decrease in sweat production.

At present, Botulinum toxin injection is now the treatment of choice for axillary hyperhidrosis if topical treatments are ineffective.

Botulinum toxin injection for axillary hyperhidrosis is available in our Dubai Healthcare City clinic, London Centre for aesthetic Surgery Gulf.

Laser Resurfacing: Quanta Youlaser Mixed Technology | Dubai | LCAS Gulf

LASER RESURFACING in DUBAI

Since the advent of laser technology as a useful skin rejuvenation and resurfacing treatment, there has been a significant growth on ways to lessen the risk, complications and side effects particularly caused by the ablative type of laser treatment. 

In the past few decades, there has been a wide array of studies and research about laser treatments for laser resurfacing depending on the wavelengths used. However, laser treatments can be grouped into 2 types: Ablative and Non-ablative. Ablative laser treatments are known to have significant clinical improvements on the skin while non-ablative laser resurfacing has lower risk of complications and less downtime, but generally requires multiple treatment sessions. 

Youlaser MT is the first and only laser that overcomes these limits through combination of CO2 ablative and GaAs non-ablative lasers. These two lasers can work separately or in an exclusive Mixed Technology allowing practitioners to offer the best treatment suitable for them. With this mixed technology type of laser treatment, these two wavelengths emitted together can maximize the advantages of each laser, improving the results in just one session. 

Youlaser MT can treat the skin by using one of the two wavelengths or the mixed wavelengths in order to find the right balance between results and downtime.

Here in Dubai, laser resurfacing is available at London Centre for Aesthetic Surgery Gulf located in Dubai Healthcare City. Drs. Maurizio and Roberto Viel have over 25 years of experience in the field of cosmetic surgery industry, and are known for their expertise in most cosmetic treatments e.g. Botulinum Toxin Injections, dermal fillers, and mesotherapy.

BOTULINUM TOXIN INJECTIONS | LCAS GULF | DUBAI

The Magical Science of Botulinum Toxin

BOTULINUM TOXIN INJECTIONS

The science of Botox has been in our reach for nearly three decades and it has been going more popular each time. While botox, also known as botulinum toxin, has been safely used for medical disorders since the 1980’s, there is a continuing increase of interest for the cosmetic applications.

In 1992, Alastair and Jean Carruthers published the first scientific abstract about botulinum toxin as a cosmetic indication. Dr. Jean Carruthers observed that patients she had treated for blepharospasm with the use of the toxin showed a decrease in the frown lines.  Also, about the same time, a group at Columbia University also noticed the decrease of dynamic lines of facial expressions with the use of botulinum toxins. With this discovery came into fruition the use of botulinum toxin as a prevention of fine lines and wrinkles.

Due to the fact that botulinum inactivates the muscle contraction, its cosmetic indications have been directed in reducing lines of active facial expression. These lines develop and can make our appearance look older.

Although this injection was first used for other medical disorders other than facial lines, there is no doubt that it is here to stay.

BOTOX: WRINKLE-ERASER | LCAS GULF | DUBAI

Botox is useful for reducing facial wrinkles that are associated with facial muscle contractions. 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.

It is also important to note that you need to understand that botox injections may not entirely relieve all dynamic wrinkles every time and that the results of these treatments are temporary. Follow-up with our doctors is done 2 weeks after the treatment.
