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.

  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.

INVISIBLE NEEDLES FOR BOTOX | DUBAI | LCAS GULF

One innovation, known as “Invisible Needle,” has been recently discovered in order to avoid the fear of the needles. Yes, you heard it right. INVISIBLE NEEDLES. It is called invisible needle due to the fact that it is the thinnest aesthetic needle available at present in the market and the first of its kind. This extremely small diameter results in a near painless experience for patients and is suitable for this type of treatment. The Low Dead Space hub is designed to reduce the effective space left behind in the needle hub as close to zero so the quantity of the medication given is in the exact amount. The invisible needle for botox also has special external feature that prevents leakage and allows for an even tighter connection to the syringe.

Many people are hesitant to come for botox injections due to their needle phobia. This should not be since botox injection procedures take only about fifteen minutes. However, we have to consider especially those people who have fear of needles and to provide them with a solution to ease their experience.

PLATELET-RICH PLASMA THERAPY: A Revolutionary Treatment | LCAS GULF | DUBAI

PRP
Platelet- rich plasma treatment

Revolutionary treatment known as platelet-rich plasma has been discovered and is currently being accepted as a great advancement in the regeneration medicine world. Platelet-rich plasma therapy is now being used in a wide range of regenerations and healing medicine since it stimulates tissue regeneration, proliferation and differentiation of stem cell, and promotes collagen production. It also improves skin glow, smoothens skin texture and tone, as well as softens facial lines and wrinkles.

Fine lines, hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone and sagging skin are common problems we encounter with aging. Combine this with poor diet, smoking, pollution and UV rays exposure increases the chance and likelihood of acceleration of this problem.

The procedure is done by collecting 9mL of your blood through a needle and placed in a tube. This tube is then put in a special centrifuge machine to separate the plasma from the rest of the blood cells. Once separated, it will be transferred to another tube for activation through a closed-system device. The activated state of the platelets signals proteins and growth factors release, thereby promoting tissue regeneration.

Here in Dubai, platelet-rich plasma therapy is available in our Dubai Healthcare City clinic. Dr Maurizio and Dr. Roberto Viel primarily use this platelet-rich plasma therapy to improve the appearance of the skin’s texture by regenerating your skin and the tissue underneath. Platelet-rich plasma therapy is completely non-toxic and hypoallergenic since it uses your own plasma.

BOTOX: A HYPERHIDROSIS TREATMENT | LCAS GULF | DUBAI

Imagine yourself having a date and you notice that your armpits are wet. Would you not be self-conscious about it?

As far as our body reaction is concerned, sweating is normal especially when we are exposed to high temperatures or stress. When these occur, our body reacts by triggering eccrine sweat glands to produce sweat. Thus, normalizing your body temperature. These eccrine sweat glands are commonly found in the palm of your hands, face, and armpits, as well as in your feet.

Since we are situated in Dubai, where heat is intense especially during the summer months, the tendency for our sweat glands to overreact is high.
