Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition in which a person sweats excessively and unpredictably. People who suffer from hyperhidrosis may sweat even in a cool temperature or they are at rest. This can be exacerbated in the summer or in hot cities like Dubai.

Sweating helps the body stay cool. It is normal to sweat in arm temperature, during exercise or in response to a situation that makes us nervous, afraid, embarrassed or afraid.

In some cases, sweating occurs even in a cool temperature or without such triggers. Those who suffer hyperhidrosis appears to have an overproduction of swear by the sweat glands. Hyperhidrosis usually occurs in the underarms, hands and feet. The uncontrollable sweating specially in the underarms which is very obviously seen can be very embarrassing.

Although many people suffer from hyperhidrosis, there are not many treatments available that are safe and effective. It can be a high risks surgical procedure or time consuming treatments.

One of the most effective, safe and quick treatment for hyperhidrosis is the use of the anti-wrinkle drug, Botox. Botox (botulinum toxin) is a purified protein that has the ability to temporarily block the secretion of the chemical called acetylcholine ( a chemical that carries the signals from the sympathetic nervous system to the eccrine sweat glands that stimulates the glands to produce sweat). By blocking or interrupting the signals, botox “turns off” sweating at the treated area temporarily. The effect of the botox to underarms , hands and feet may lasts from six months to one year.

Botox to the underarms, hands and feet will take place at our Dubai Healthcare City clinic and in Harley Street London clinic by our plastic surgeons, Drs Roberto and Maurizio Viel. In the case of botox to underarms, a topical anaesthetic cream is applied prior to the procedure. It is 45 minutes to 1 hour procedure. However, injecting to the hands and feet cam be more painful and Dr Maurizio Viel and Dr Roberto Viel recommend performing the botox treatment under a 20 minute sedation. It is not a general anaesthesia, and you can go home same day.

Facial Pigmentation treatment by Drs Maurizio and Roberto Viel

Living in the UAE has resulted in me having some pigmentation on my cheeks and eye area. Is there anything I can do to improve this?

DERMAMELAN available at LCAS 2

Pigmentation is the collection of melanin resulting usually from the over-exposure to the sun, pregnancy, age, hormones, producing freckle-like marks or larger dark patches on the skin. The Dermamelan mask is a safe and highly effective mean of reducing pigmentation as it contains a synergistic complex of natural compounds that inhibit the production of melanin.  The depigmenting mask is applied by your surgeon and should be kept on the skin for a minimum of 8 – 10 hours or as recommended by your surgeon, and can be washed at home with water.  A home-care cream should then be applied once a day at home or as recommended.  There is one or two days downtime when the skin appears red, flakey and is very dry.  These effects are only transitory while the skin starts to rejuvenate itself and the dark patches start fading with time.

Botox and Dermal fillers this Valentines

 

Valentines Day is fast approaching and not many of us always have the time for lengthy anti-ageing procedures that involve too much downtime or surgery.  At London Centre for Aesthetic Surgery Gulf, plastic surgeons, Drs Maurizio and Roberto Viel performs some non-invasive treatments that dramatically reduce the need for more invasive treatment that can have a lifting and rejuvenating effect on your face.  The botox injection and dermal fillers are offered at both the Harley Street, London clinic and the Dubai Healthcare City clinic.

Facial wrinkles are one the most common problems that occurs during the early thirties. The best treatment that our plastic surgeons recommend is botox injection. Botolinum toxin (botox injection) is a purified protein that freezes the muscle for a period of three to six months. It is highly effective and straightforward treatment that eliminates or reduces facial lines like crow’s feet, worry lines and frown lines. The treatment will take ten to twenty minutes and you can see the result after three to four days. Read more…

Dermal fillers is another non-surgical treatment that can reduce facial lines, fill out deep facial wrinkles, creases, furrows, “sunken” cheeks, skin depressions and some types of scars. They can also be used to add a fuller, more sensuous look to the lips. The great thing about the dermal filler is not only it has no downtime, you can see the result after your treatment!

Dermal fillers (injectable fillers) is composed of hyaluronic acid that is natural substance found in your body. When dermal filler is injected, it acts like an inflated cushion to support facial structures and tissues that may have lost volume or elasticity due to normal ageing. Read more..

A non-surgical procedure which can reduce facial lines is achieved by using new and different filler materials, such as Juverderm, Radiesse and Voluma. Collagen, which occurs naturally throughout the body breaks down as a result of the natural ageing process and results in the appearance of fine lines.

Injectable fillers are primarily used to improve the appearance of the skin’s texture.  They can help fill out deep facial wrinkles, creases and furrows, “sunken” cheeks, skin depressions and some types of scars.  They can also be used to add a fuller, more sensuous look to the lips.

What to expect from fillers

The most important fact to remember about injectable fillers is that the results are not permanent.  Injected material is eventually absorbed by the body.  You should not expect the same long-lasting results that may be gained from cosmetic surgery.

In some individuals, the results may last only a few weeks; in others, the results may be maintained indefinitely.  Researchers believe that age, genetic background, skin quality and lifestyle as well as the injected body site may all play a role in the injected material’s “staying power.”  However, the precise reason for the variation of results among patients has yet to be identified.

Planning your treatment

Facial rejuvenation is very individualized.  That’s why it’s important to discuss your expectations with certified plastic surgeon who has experience with many different types of surgical and non-surgical facial procedures.

Your filler procedure

Your filler injection will take place at our Dubai Healthcare City Clinic.  The surgeon will discuss with you exactly where you would like to have the filler injected, then he will inject some local anesthetic into and around the area to which you are having the treatment, to numb the area.  Using a syringe, the surgeon will inject the filler material into the specific areas required.  The treatment will take around 20 mins.

You can return to normal activities immediately after your treatment, however you will be slightly numb for a few hours until the local anesthetic wears off.

DERMAMELAN available at LCAS

DERMAMELAN available at LCAS 2

DERMAMELAN

Pigmentation may be caused by sun damage, inflammation, or other skin injuries, including those related to acne vulgaris.

Dermamelan treatment is a unique, safe and highly effective mean of eliminating pigmented spots as well as acne on the face and body. The cream contains a high concentration of vitamins A and C and thus has rejuvenating effect on skin.

It contains a synergistic complex of natural compounds that inhibit the production of the dark pigment, melanin by the Melanocytes (pigment forming cells) in the skin.

It is the most effective treatment for dark patches, known as Melasma, that occur due to hormonal changes and pregnancy.

 

Dermamelan treatment is compromised of two parts:

  1. Dermamelan Professional Mask

A depigmenting mask is applied and should be kept on the skin for a minimum period of 8 hours or as recommended by your plastic surgeon, following which it should be washed off with water by the patient at home.

  1. Dermamelan Home Care
    • The face and/or body areas should be cleansed twice a day with specia mesoestetic facial wash or milk cleanser followed by mesoestetic toner. Thereafter a fine layer of Dermamelan cream should be applied once or twice a day, as recommended by your doctor.
    • NO OTHER CREAM, SUNSCREEN OR LIQUID FOUNDATION TO BE APPLIED ON TOP FOR A PERIOD OF 3 HOURS SINCE ITMAY DILUTE THE EFFECT OF DERMAMELAN.
    • The skin will appear red; it may also peel and get very dry. Please do not be alarmed since the treatment is very safe and these effects are only transitory. In actual fact the peeling effect is highly rejuvenating and refining for the skin.

Hydra-Vital Factor K moisturizing cream and moisturizing sunscreen may be applied several times during the day, whilst respecting the 3 hour lag period after Dermamelan. This will hydrate the skin in-between Dermamelan cream applications.

    • If the skin is still red, it is possible to alternate the application of Dermamelan cream such that it is left on the skin for 3 hours only one night and 8 hours the next night.
    • Dermamelan  cream applications must continue nightly for a year after commencement of the treatment to prevent recurrence of the spots.
    • In the event of any untoward reaction, please contact your treating physician.
    • Second year of treatment, Dermamelan cream should be applied three times a week at night.

Botox with Dr Roberto Viel and Dr Maurizio Viel

Botox with Dr Roberto Viel and Dr Maurizio Viel

Botox with Dr Roberto Viel and Dr Maurizio Viel

Facial lines are caused by the repeated use of the facial muscles in a particular manner. Facial lines form wherever we frown, squint or smile. Some people have a distinctive facial habit – raising eyebrows, using one side of the face more than the other and they will in time see a set of facial lines appear which reflect this individual habit.

Botulinum toxin is a purified protein that blocks this signal from brain to the nerve endings. Injections are given to temporarily put the muscles to sleep for a period of three to six months, although the results can last longer with repeated treatments. This freezing of the muscle is always temporary and can never be permanent so Botulinum toxin is sometimes called “The Hibernation Treatment” as the muscle “hibernates” for a few months. The aim is to break the habit of frowning and educate the patient in his or her facial movement so that one ‘forgets’ how to frown. Usually patients have several of these injections over a year or two until the frowning habit is broken.

Benefits of Botox

The positive benefits of botox toxin injections are that while the muscle is temporarily immobilised, the frown line is not being created or reinforced. Most patients notice that their existing frown lines do soften because the forehead is completely relaxed. Some people have a markedly lopsided face due to an overactive muscle on one side. This botox treatment can be used to weaken an overactive muscle thereby balancing the face.

How long does a botox treatment take?

The botox treatment takes approximately 15 minutes. The injections are slightly uncomfortable. Afterwards you may have some tiny red marks where the needle was inserted and these may last up to 24 hours. The effects of the botox gradually takes effect over a week to ten days. After two weeks the muscle will be completely ‘asleep’.
