Fine lines and wrinkles
Beauty is defined by the symmetry of a face, including the height of your cheekbones and a proportionate narrow jaw line. Unfortunately, fine lines and wrinkles can be the first signs of ageing skin that appears on your face. Your body may be in shape and you may feel young but that does not combat ageing.
Depending on your specific situation our consultant may recommend Dermal Fillers, Microneedling, PRP, Vampire Facial and/or Vampire Facelift.
In the case of Vampire Facelift we use Microneedling with PRP and/or fillers. We only used high quality PRP from Dr PRP (Korean/American) or GloPRP (Finnish).
Dark cirles around the eyes
Dark circles can occur at a relatively young age and are often very bothersome. They can cause great distress for the person suffering from dark circles. Family and friends may have a hard time understanding how it impacts the self esteem of a patient.
Dark circle are due to a wide number of causes, including but not limited to allergies, fatigue, rubbing or scratching the eyes, contact dermatitis, sunlight exposure, thinning of the skin due to loss of fat and collagen leaving to more visible red-blue blood vessels.
Carboxy Therapy, PRP and/or Microneedling may, individually or combined, reduce dark circles.
Patients suffering from dark circles may need maintenance treatment after 6-12 months.
Pigment changes of the face and body
Many people suffer from hypo- or hyper-pigmentation on the face or body. Often, it’s seen as Melasma in the face. Even a very light discolouration in the face can be relatively prominent, as the face is exposed.
Pigment changes may be due to many reasons. Some may be treatable, while others are harder to treat.
Treatments include Microneedling or PRP. In most cases, there is no cure for pigment changes, but with the right approach and maintenance treatment you may be able to be free of pigment changes. Despite the continuing treatment it is usually of great relief to the patient to be able to leave behind the pigment change.
Our consultant will assess your situation and guide you regarding the treatment options available. It’s important that you aware of the pros and cons of the treatment so that your condition, your expectation and the treatment plan are aligned.
Pigment changes of the genital area
It’s normal for the skin in the ano-genital area to be darker than the rest of the body and it can further darken with age. However, in some patients, the darker colour can become quite bothersome, even in patients that have a light skin colour, otherwise.
The causes can be due to a number of reasons, including the use of talcum powder, use of a razor, wax or cream for hair removal and hormonal changes.
As with most cases of (aesthetic) medicine one size does not fit all. This is true for the diagnosis, treatment and prognosis.
During the consultation we’ll assess your condition, try to understand your expectations and give you a realistic assessment of the treatment we can offer.
Deep lines, nasolabial fold and volume restoration of the face and facial shaping
One of the greatest “give away” of one’s age is the nasolabial fold, though lines, wrinkles, hair loss, loss of elasticity, glow and volume.
An overall improvement in the lines, wrinkles and volume and achieving a younger look may require us to address the various aspect of your looks with a view to your overall looks.
The treatment plan may be include Dermal Fillers, Microneedling and PRP or a combination of these.
Acne, Acne scars, stretch marks (Striae) and Keloid
Usually, the treatment for active acne, would be different medicines taken over several weeks or months. Medicines may include topical treatment or oral medicines and tablets. Depending on your conditions and the medicine used we may need to monitor your liver function and take regular blood tests.
If you are no longer suffering from active acne we may opt for Microneedling, PRP and or dermal fillers to treat any remaining acne scars.
The same treatments may be used for stretch marks. Generally speaking, newer stretch marks that are still reddish may respond better or faster than older paler stretch marks. Therefore, we suggest you seek a consultation, sooner rather than later, for better and faster results.
Keloid scars are raised, red scars growing out of the site of injury (including surgery). They can often be seen on the chest, over the shoulders or the hands, though it can occur in other places. Keloid scars are more common with darker skin.
Apart from the above mentioned treatments injection of steroids may also be required for better results.
My Skin Clinic is the first clinic in Pakistan to combine Advanced Ultima Microneedling with PRP for the treatment of hair loss. We use high quality PRP from Dr PRP (Korean/American) or Glo PRP (Finnish). Be aware that some clinics may use normal blood collection tubes to “create PRP” which are not really PRP and not approved to be re-injected into the human body.
In the Subcontinent there is a great demand for skin whitening or treatment for hypo- and hyper-pigmentation. Some people may also have light skin but darker private parts. Regardless of the extent and nature of pigment changes, it can cause great distress for some patients.
Some patients are looking for a more general whitening of the skin as it’s considered more attractive in the Indian Subcontinent. While a bronzed looked is more sought after in the Western world.
If suitable, we may suggest injection with Glutathione with Vitamin C for a general whitening of the skin.
We’ll evaluate your situation and suggest a suitable treatment whether it’s a topical, local or systemic treatment.
