Do You Know What are the Side Effects Involved with Derma Rollers?

side-effects of derma rollers

 

Who doesn’t wish to look beautiful? Can you name someone…anyone, who doesn’t?

We buy new dresses, get a new haircut and try different types of new cosmetics…all in order to look glamorous, attractive and noticeable. As the desire to look beautiful in humans is increasing, so are their efforts in that path. Hence, frequent visits to licensed skin clinics in Melbourne have become a ritual, since the past few years.

Following the trend, the derma roller treatment that is used to cure different types of scars, pigmentation and marks, has become quite popular. But, the prospect of being pricked by hundreds of needles is a bit unsettling, I believe, even though the feedback of patients after the treatment has been exceptionally good. Like any other skin treatment, there are certain concerns and risks that we need to know before trying out this skin rejuvenating treatment.

What is derma roller?

Derma roller is a scientific device that is attached with numerous fine needles in its head. This device is rolled over the skin to get rid of pigmentation, stretch marks, acne scars, accident scars, and wrinkles. To resist the pinching sensation, a topic anaesthesia is applied in the skin before starting the skin needling treatment.

How does microneedling work?

When derma roller is rubbed over the face, it punctures the upper epidermal layer to activate the skin’s healing process by rapid creation of collagen proteins to form new tissues. The young tissues are more even in tone and texture and quite firm in nature. Thus, derma roller efficiently rejuvenates the whole face diminishing the marks and creases.

Where to buy derma roller?

Derma rollers can be bought from several online cosmetic websites or from aesthetic shops. Although, it is best to undergo the derma roller treatment under the supervision of a cosmetic doctor as the home kit of derma roller does not prove that effective. It is cautionary also to seek a licensed practitioner for microneedling treatment as normally, we lack both skill and knowledge required for this treatment.

What are the side-effects of derma roller treatment?

The derma roller treatment, when done at a professional skin clinic in Melbourne, the scope of any sort of harmful impact is reduced to a great extent. For the pain and discomfort to be of a minimum level, the selection of needles and the technique should be precise. There are chances of side-effects involved with the derma roller treatment if proper precautions are not taken before and after the skin needling treatment.

The most common consequences of the derma roller treatments are slight sensitiveness and redness in the face. Apart from that, other subtle side-effects involve:
 Bruising,
 Inflammation and infection,
 Sudden bleeding,
 Flaking.

Who should not be undergoing the skin needling procedure?

Any male or female who is willing to, can give this innovative skin rejuvenation process a chance. However, excluding the few people who fall under any of the below-mentioned categories:

 If she is pregnant,
 If he/she has an open wound in the proximity,
 If he/she has a history of scars,
 If he/she has undergone radiation therapy in recent time,
 If he/she is suffering from skin disorders such as eczema, psoriasis, etc.

How much time does derma roller take? Is it worthwhile?

A single session of microneedling requires nearly 30 minutes. And from the brilliant results that we have witnessed in some patients after the treatment, we can conclude, derma roller is definitely worth it.

Continuous sessions of derma rollers improve the texture and elasticity of skin, reduces the appearance of wrinkles and lines, heals scars and stretch marks and erases pigmentation. So, mostly, just have a proper consultation from your physician, and give it a shot.

When you have found the right skin clinic and right aesthetic physician, looking ageless is not so difficult. For any information on anti-ageing treatments or a free consultation, visit Nitai Medical and Cosmetic Centre in Melbourne.

Find Out Everything You Need to Know About Tattoo Removal

tattoo removal in Melbourne

 

Be it a decision taken at the spur of a moment or a pre-planned one, getting a beautiful tattoo is an exhilarating experience, but removing that tattoo can become a dreadful practice if not done in the proper way at a proper skin clinic.

Once upon a time, tattoos were regarded as a sign of a somewhat murky past, however, in the recent trend, tattoos are a sign of distinction and modernity. Not so many years ago, tattoos had a negative connotation, but nowadays there are few celebrities who do not wear one and even fewer young people who have not thought of getting one, ever… even a little one.

But, as the trend of forming inked images in the body is increasing, so is the desire to remove them after a certain point in time. Over the span of years, we change…our personality, our taste and our preferences transform. Hence, it is very much possible we end up regretting our hasty decision on tattoos. What options do we have then except tattoo removal treatments?  However, one should know tattoo removal is a complex process which requires a deep understanding of the matter before proceeding further with the notion. So, here is everything you need to know about tattoo removal in Melbourne.

What do you need to know before removing a tattoo?

The most important advice that we would give is to think it through before getting a tattoo because doing it is quite simple, but removing it is a very troublesome and hectic process. All the experts over the globe mention laser tattoo removal treatment as the best method to remove a tattoo, but, it is also necessary to remember that it may take many sessions to finally achieve the desired result. Also, the number of sessions varies from about 4 to 12, where a short interval of 6 to 8 weeks is recommended between sessions.

What are the complexities involved in laser tattoo removal in Melbourne?

The factors that influence the complexity of the tattoo removal treatment in Melbourne are the size of the tattoo itself, its age, the area it is in, the number of inks used, and especially how it was made since according to the professional tattoo artists the depth of the ink depends on it.

As for the colours, multi-coloured tattoos are the most complex to eliminate and require a greater number of sessions, so there are some tattoos that are very easily removed, and a few other tattoos created in deep ink that are difficult to remove. Sometimes, they even end up looking like ghost tattoos. In general, the most difficult colours to eliminate are yellow,
green and turquoise and the simplest are the dark ones.

Likewise, the patient’s own skin also influences. It is quite tricky to remove tattoos in the patients with dark or tanned skin due to the risk of competitive absorption of laser light, as the melanin present in the epidermis may generate post-laser sequelae. The simplest cases will be those of light-skinned patients, with tattoos of a single dark colour. Also, it is easier to erase the older tattoos as the oldest tattoos are progressively losing ink naturally.

Different Types of Lasers Used in Tattoo Removal in Melbourne:

While the innovation in laser technology never ceases, but, for the removal of tattoos, there are some specific types of lasers that are highly used. According to several medical institutes on laser therapy, the choice of laser will depend on the type of tattoo.

Thus, for black inks, which are well absorbed in almost all wavelengths, the ideal laser will be the Q-Switched Neodymium-Yag of 1064 nm wavelength. Although alexandrite lasers of 755 nm can also be effective in such case.

In the case of complex inks, such as blue or green, the most suitable lasers are the one of Ruby Q-Switched (however, not in use anymore) or the Q-Switched lasers of polymers that emit up to 650 nm.

Finally, for colours such as red and yellow, the best results are obtained with the Q Switched equipment of 532 nm.

Precisely, Q-Switched (QS) technology that is used in different wave types generate extremely short pulses but they are emitted with a high energy power. All this generates a thermal expansion or thermoelastic dilation, which produces a disruption and fragmentation of the ink particles in tiny and smaller microparticles, thus destroying the pigmented particles completely.

At Nitai Medical and Cosmetic Centre, we use Revlite Q-Switched Lasers which have helped our thousands of patients get rid of unwanted tattoos without any concern.

Complications of laser tattoo removal in Melbourne:

Although the latest laser technology ensures better results, in less time and with less risk, there are some complications of the laser tattoo removal in Melbourne, which must be taken into account.

There is a probability that QS lasers leave a little abrasion or marks that usually fades within 5 to 14 days. In such cases, your physician might suggest you apply a healing cream, to avoid the formation of scabs until complete skin regeneration. Of course, during that period, the treated area must not be exposed to ultraviolet radiation, that is, you have to be careful to not expose the area to the sun. In tanned patients, it may be advisable to delay the treatment until it has completely disappeared, to ensure a better result.

As for other complications, there are chances of developing dyschromia, which is also termed as hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation in simple language.

That is why as final recommendations it is always advisable to seek a dermatologist or an expert in cosmetic treatments at the time of undergoing this type of laser treatment, and of course, think it through before getting a tattoo.

What are the Different Types of Side Effects of Facial Fillers?

side effects of facial fillers

 

From childhood to adulthood, we grow up cherishing our face. All these years, we have always taken best care of it, and have spent long hours in front of the mirror, adorning it with make-up and colours. But, as we reach mid-thirties and see that cherished face wither away with time, it hurts a lot. Desperately, we rampage from one cosmetic product to another, wondering if one of them would suit perfectly and halt the signs of ageing somehow. Although cosmetic products might not prove so effective, the cosmetic treatments like facial fillers definitely can.

Recently, the anti-ageing treatment with facial fillers is getting wide acceptance in Melbourne society as more and more people are resorting to it. Maybe you also have heard about it and thinking of giving it a try. But, do you know what are the side effects of facial fillers?

There are so many important facts that we need to be aware of before undergoing treatment with facial fillers. So, let us find out more about the concerns and consequences associated with the facial fillers.

What are Facial Fillers/Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers in Melbourne are artificially generated gel-based compound that imitates the structural composition of naturally found collagen in the human body.

The loss of collagen and fat padding creates hollow regions in the face such as the under-eye circles, flat and bony cheeks, etc and also sagged skin and wrinkles. Facial fillers add volume to those depressed areas and thus
improves the overall appeal of the face. When the dermal filler is injected into the skin, the facial fillers interact with the water content available beneath the skin and plumps up slowly. This fills up the hollow region in the face and reduces the appearance of wrinkles and lines as well.

Along with all that, facial fillers also accelerate the production of collagen, which retains the elasticity of skin and repairs it from within. A wide range of facial fillers are present such as the lip plumper, cheek fillers, etc. The cost, longevity and efficacy of the facial fillers depend on the type of fillers used.

What are the common side effects of facial fillers?

Facial fillers in Melbourne are generally considered innocuous compared to other surgical treatments prevalent in the market. Still, certain subtle side-effects might occur after the completion of the dermal filler treatment.

 Redness at the site of injection,
 Pain,
 Bruising,
 Itching,
 Lump formation and
 Discolouration or subtle pigmentation.

These effects are temporary and surely fades away within a week. However, if the symptoms persist, then it is prudent to pay a visit to your physician.

Is it possible to develop any severe consequence from facial fillers in Melbourne?

Sometimes, if the dermal filler procedure is not performed by an experienced cosmetic doctor or if good quality facial fillers are not used, then, some very rare and stern side effects of facial fillers may occur.

 Inflammation or infection (happens when proper hygiene is not maintained, or animal collagen is used),
 Sudden rupture or leakage at the injection site,
 Small nodules formation around the injection site which might need surgical assistance for complete removal,
 Granulomas, a type of allergic reaction to animal collagen and certain other fillers,
 Slide of dermal fillers from one place to another.
 Rare cases of blindness, which occurs when an artery is injected with the filler, thus, blocking the flow of blood in the eye.
 Death of tissues due to blockage in blood flow,
 Harm to the blood vessels.

The chance of having any of these side effects of facial fillers after the treatment is extremely less, still, at Nitai Medical and Cosmetic Centre, we always believe a little precaution never hurts anyone.

Precautions/Care to Prevent the Side effects of facial fillers from Occurring:

 The treatment should be performed by an experienced cosmetic doctor only.
 The dermal filler treatment should be done under proper hygienic medical conditions to avoid any kind of allergy or discomfort.
 Prior to the treatment, discover every detail on the quality of facial fillers. Also, have an allergy test done before the treatment to find out if the fillers are secure to be used.
 Ensure that the facial filler to be used is TGA approved and
 Pay attention if the facial fillers or the needles are safely packed or half open before the treatment starts.

Facial fillers may create unwanted repercussions, but when it is done by a professional cosmetic physician, then the chances of any sort of side-effect mitigates largely. So, to spin back the wheels of ageing, you can certainly go for facial fillers but, just make sure to follow all the above-mentioned precautions.

A big black spot or a hairy lump on any visible part of our body looks very unattractive…especially if it is in the face, isn’t it?

It not only affects the allure of the face but also smashes the inner confidence to a great extent. And not to mention the risks on life if the mole turns out to be carcinogenic.

But still, the subtle white spot or scarring that is left behind after the treatment turns out to be the matter of another great concern. It is not possible to miraculously wipe out the scarring completely after the mole removal, it can be rest upon the healing of time only.

Know All About the Best Double Chin Removal Treatment at Nitai Skin Clinic

Double Chin Removal at Nitai Clinic

 

A slender chin symbolizes beauty, confidence and grace…whereas, double chin, wattle, or gobbler, whatever you name it, robs us of those completely.

In Australia, both men and women reckon that double chin makes a person appear unhealthy, overweight and old. A survey of Australians has purported that around 56% of women and 39% of men revealed that double chin makes them feel self-conscious and less attractive. And the most discomforting fact is that out of all the women who participated in the survey, 33% of women in their 20s have double chin. The same percentage of women in their 30s and 40s have double chin, which indicates that irrespective of age, any person may develop double chin.

At Nitai Medical and Cosmetic Centre, we have a long history of helping people with our innovative double chin treatments. Many believe that double chin occurs due to overweight, but contradictory to that common belief, double chin might appear due to several other factors like old age, genetics, etc. The eclectic patient profiles with double chin and the extensive experience of our doctors have provided us an in-depth account of the double chin causes, concerns and treatment.

What is double chin? What are the causes behind the occurrence of double chin?

Due to certain factors, layers of unwanted fats accumulate under the chin creating an extra bulge there. This makes the face appear heavy and elderly.
There might be many reasons behind the sudden appearance of double chin.

Some estimated factors are:

Hereditary Effects:

Due to genetic influence, one might end up inheriting double chin.

Age Factor:

As a person matures, the facial shape of the person changes. That is a time when a person develops mostly.

Overweight:

The most commonly known factor for double chin is being overweight. When a person puts on too much weight suddenly, then the chances of appearance of double chin increases.

What is the effective double chin removal treatment used at Nital Medical and Cosmetic Centre in Melbourne?

double chin image

 

Even though there are numerous double chin treatments available in Australia, but most of them are very expensive and immensely painful. What most of our patient desire is to have a permanent double chin removal treatment that is both cost-efficient and less painful for them. And the non-surgical injectable treatment adopted by Nitai Skin Clinic aptly fits both the criteria. The double chin removal injections contain synthetically produced deoxycholic acid which dissolves the extra fat accumulating under our chin. Deoxycholic acid occurs naturally in our body, hence it exerts very minimal to negligible side-effects but very effective results.

How does this double chin removal injection works?

 

In this double chin treatment at Nitai Medical and Cosmetic Centre, a compound called deoxycholic acid is used to break down the fat molecules under the chin. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally available substance in our body that disrupts the fat molecules in our food. The artificially created deoxycholic acid is applied under the chin in a series of injections, which then slowly dissolves the excess fat content under our chin and the liquefied fat cells is later excreted from our body with the help of liver. Thus, this double chin treatment corrects the neck as well as jawline profile perfectly.

Why choose this double chin removable treatment with deoxycholic acid over others?

There are many brilliant features of this treatment that proves it to be superior over others:

  • Compared to all the surgical double chin removal techniques and liposuction, deoxycholic acid double chin treatments are less painful and economical.
  • The double chin treatment takes only 15-20 minutes to finish a session. Also, it requires a very small amount of downtime after the treatment.
    When done by a specialized cosmetic physician, it does not have any permanent side-effects.
  • This treatment is very safe and can be customized as per the patient’s convenience and requirements.
  • Once the complete treatment is over, the fat cells that have been treated do not regenerate and as a result, they do not cause double chin to reappear.

How many sessions are required to be rid of double chin completely?

At Nitai Skin Clinic in Melbourne, we have witnessed remarkable changes in our patients after 2-4 sessions of the double chin treatment. But, for some, it might take more than that. So, we suggest up to 6 sessions to completely remove the appearance of double chin and acquire a slender neck and prominent jawline.

Are there any side-effects of this double chin removal injection?

Since it is a prescription-only medicine, it is highly secured and has negligible side-effects when the treatment is conducted at a good dermatological centre. Although, in general, there are some discomforts such as a little bruising or redness or very mild pain at the site of injection during the ongoing sessions. In certain cases, there are chances of developing some minor side-effects that are temporary and fades away within a week:

  • Bruising,
  • Swelling,
  • Redness,
  • Numbness,
  • Pain,
  • Lump formation,
  • Itching and tingling sensation.

In some severe cases, due to inefficiency in treatment or heightened sensitivity, the patient might experience uneven smile, trouble in swallowing, food apathy, sore at the injection site, sudden hair loss, or discolouration. We recommend to immediately seek the aid of your physician if any of those severe side-effects occur.

What precautions are taken to avoid any kind of discomfort?

Deoxycholic acid injections might create mild irritation or pain while applying the series of injections under the chin. Hence, prior to the treatment, cubes of ice or cold packs are applied to the treated area to avoid any kind of discomfort. Also, in certain cases, local anaesthesia is fused with the injectable liquid to diminish pain. Patients are also suggested to intake pain relievers before the procedure to sustain any sort of pain.

Who are the ideal patients for non-surgical double chin removal injections?

Double chin removal injections work miracle on anyone with fullness under the chin area. But, since this injection eliminates double chin by disrupting the excess fat layers, so ideal candidates are those whose layers of fat under the chin can be grabbed with the index and thumb finger. The patients with loose or sagged skin beneath the chin are not very ideal cases for this treatment.

Nobody prefers swollen flesh under chin as it not only deforms the shape of the face, but it also spoils the grace of the neck and jawline. Earlier the removal of double chin via surgery or liposuction was a tad inconvenient. But, this innovative double chin treatment is hassle-free, safe and affordable.

Embrace the double chin removal treatment at Nitai Skin Clinic and get your confidence, grace and beauty back!

This procedure is increasingly demanded because it has significant benefits and because it works against dark circles, fine lines, wrinkles, folds, facial furrows and volume loss. Do you want to know more about the benefits of dermal fillers?

Benefits of dermal fillers:

  • Dermal fillers are injectable treatments with biocompatible solutions that can be injected into any area of the skin to increase volume. With this type of procedure, wrinkles and any crease of the skin resulting from the aging process are filled.
  • Over time the skin loses elasticity and volume especially in the area of the cheeks and forehead. The result is a sagging skin with wrinkles, creases and in general a somewhat emaciated appearance. Thanks to the fillings you can restore the youthful appearance of the face.
  • The fillers do not require any surgery, it is a procedure administered by an injectable without severe risks involved and if your skin is sensitive, liquid anaesthesia is fused along with the facial fillers.

If you are not happy with the outcome of the treatment, you can ask your physician to dissolve it right away or else you can just wait a little bit to let the facial fillers run its course. Fillers usually last up to 12 months to 18 months and by not requiring any type of recovery you can do it again when you need it.
  • Substances used in dermal fillers help to improve the appearance of the skin since they stimulate the production of collagen leaving a much softer complexion.
  • Cheap dermal fillers in Melbourne are prepared from compounds that are found naturally in the body, so they are biocompatible, and the chances of allergy or inflammation are reduced.

Let Us Dig Out All the Minor Details on Anti-wrinkle Injections!

 

Ageing is a natural process and we all are aware of it. But still, as soon as the signs of ageing start appearing, we desperately seek ways to reverse it and rejuvenate our skin. After all, it is the period of panache and beauty, when everybody desires to look and feel attractive and alluring.

Even though there are numerous surgical anti-ageing treatments available, but the risks, pain and exaggerated price of the treatment processes does not make it worthwhile for our many patients. Hence based on the capital feedback of our patients, at Nitai Medical and Cosmetic Centre, we recommend our premium quality anti-wrinkle injections to our most clients.

But, what exactly is this premium quality anti-wrinkle injection? How does it help? You need to understand all such trivial facts before undergoing this anti-ageing treatment.

Why do we get wrinkles and folds when we age?

It is a commonly known fact that our cell regeneration process slows down as we age. This theory extends to our skin cells also. As time passes, the creation of structural proteins and fats slow down, as a result, consistent loss of collagen and elastin (structural proteins), and fats occur which reduces the elasticity of the skin. Apart from that, our facial muscles also become weak as we grow. Therefore, when our facial muscles contract, it takes time to retreat back to its initial position, leaving behind lingering impression on the skin, which are termed as dynamic wrinkles.

What sort of wrinkles are erased with the help of anti-wrinkle injections?

Anti-wrinkle injections work best upon dynamic wrinkles, which occur in our face when we create expressions like frown or smile. As anti-wrinkle injections are injected into facial muscles to prevent the occurrence of wrinkles, they prove most effective in removing crow’s feet, frown lines and forehead lines.

How does our premium quality anti-wrinkle injection work?

To fix the unwanted display of lines and creases, our premium quality injections relax the wrinkle-causing muscles, thus, remarkably, diminishing the occurrence of wrinkles and folds and rejuvenating the skin from within.

What does the premium quality anti-wrinkle injection, used in Nitai Medical and Cosmetic Centre, consist of?

At Nitai Medical and Cosmetic Centre, a special type of protein synthesized from a type of lab-cultured bacteria is utilized. The protein is meticulously treated and only after myriad tests on its effectiveness and security, it is released for commercial use. To know more about the wrinkle removing injections, read our blog, an account on wrinkle removal injections.

In some special cases, anaesthesia is also added to avoid any sort of discomfort in the ongoing treatment.

How to ensure the maximum and secured effect of this anti-wrinkle injection?

This anti-ageing injection works only on the precisely injected muscles, the rest of the area remains completely unaffected. Hence, it is important to seek such anti-wrinkle treatment from a specialized cosmetic practitioner, at a licensed skin clinic.

Also, it is required to continue the treatment after every four months (approx.) as the effect of the anti-wrinkle injection subsides within that period of time. But, with continuity of the treatment, the result of the anti-wrinkle injections last for longer time.

nitai before after

How many sessions does it require?

This wrinkle removal treatment gets over in a couple of minutes only. When done by an experienced cosmetic physician, it only takes 10 to 15 mins to complete the whole wrinkle removal treatment as it comprises of just one session.

When can one expect to see improvements?

After 1-2 days of the treatment only, one can see subtle changes in the appearance of wrinkles. But, for best results, one will have to wait for at least 10-14 days. Although, it should be taken into consideration that result of the treatment varies from person to person depending on the type of treatment and skin requirements.

What are the common side-effects of anti-wrinkle injections?

Generally, this anti-wrinkle injection does not instigate any side-effects, but in some cases, it might generate some common distress:

 Extreme pain, burning and stinging sensation in the injected areas,
 Bruising, swelling or redness might also occur,
 Tightness in the injected skin area,
 Muscle weakness, resulting in drooping eyelids or eyebrows,
 Swollen eyelids,
 Tingling sensations or itching in the forehead,
 Headaches, nausea and flu-like symptoms might also appear.

These symptoms are not very grave and are reported to fade away within a week.

What special precautions to be taken after the anti-ageing treatment?

Your practitioner will be able to instruct you properly about what specific safety measures need to be taken.

Apart from that, we would suggest refraining from rubbing or applying pressure in that area for the next 4 hours at least.

Is it possible to use the anti-wrinkle injection in combination with other cosmetic treatments?

Many clients of ours, prefer customized facial treatments that take care of the total appearance of the face. In those cases, anti-wrinkle injections are combined with dermal fillers and double chin removal injections to augment the overall impact.

As of today, both men and women prefer a smooth, clean and hairless body. People often opt for shaving or waxing, but even these methods cannot get rid of hair completely. After only a lapse of one week to 15 days, the stubs of hair start re-occurring. That is why many people are heading out to give laser hair removal technique a try.

But, then again, doesn’t laser hair removal treatment cost too much? Quite frankly, they don’t. Maybe once they were very expensive, when they were just introduced to the market for commercial use. Now, at present, laser hair removal treatment in Melbourne costs something in between $ 50 to $ 330, depending on the area to be treated and the type of laser rays to be applied.

Excessive hair growth on face, as well as body, may be due to either genetic factors or hormonal imbalances. In those conditions, the prevalent hair removal methods may not prove very effective. Moreover, the advanced multiple settings of the laser attachments provide the luxury to safely (with the usually known risk profile) remove facial hair. Compared to other hair removal techniques, laser hair removal treatment is remarkably hassle-free and painless. But, the piled-up misconceptions associated with the laser hair removal treatment, dissuade people from considering it even. Hence, it is the time to unveil all the myths and facts related to laser therapy treatment.

How much a full body hair removal laser treatment costs?

A huge prejudice surrounding laser hair removal treatment is that it is exorbitant, meaning overpriced. But, nothing can be farther from the truth. With all the variations and modifications done in the field of laser technology, the hair removal with laser technology has become very convenient and pocket-friendly. Hence, if you don’t desire to deal with the unwanted hair trouble every time you are heading out, hair removal with lasers is a wise choice.

Does the skin get blotched in the laser hair removal treatment?

There are several precautions that must be taken into account by the physician while performing the laser treatments on patients. So, when those safety measures are precisely followed, chances of marks or pain is largely reduced. It also depends on the type of laser used during the treatment, for instance, at Nitai Medical and Cosmetic Centre, medical grade laser systems are used that precisely focus on the body hair without affecting the neighbouring area. Therefore, any chances of blemishes or burn with laser hair removal treatment is negligible.

Are the intense pulsed light (IPL) and the medical grade laser systems similar?

Although it is a very common misconception to consider both of them to be similar, the intense pulsed light is very different from medical grade lasers. Intense pulsed light (IPL) releases a broad spectrum of light that is absorbed by the melanin content present in the hair and a little by the neighbouring skin as well. The heat caused by the light stops the growth of hair and initiates regeneration of skin cells. But, for some skin types, it might prove harmful with the appearance of blistering or pigmentation. Whereas, medical grade lasers that are used in reputed skin clinics in Melbourne, emits a single wavelength light of high frequency. It targets the hair follicle precisely without impacting the nearby skin. It is much more effective than IPL and poses much lesser threat than IPL, hence, mostly recommended dermatologists.

Does laser hair removal treatment provide a permanent solution?

Body hair grows in different cycles, so it is not possible to get rid of all hair in a particular area after the first session only, although with each session of laser treatment, the hair growth retards remarkably, thus, ceasing to reappear finally after a certain number of sessions.

What are the risks associated with the laser hair removal treatment?

Present day laser technology enables secured hair removal experience but of course, there may be some discomforts such as burns, pigmentation, etc. if it is not performed at a reputed skin clinic in Melbourne by an experienced doctor.

Who are the ideal candidates for laser hair removal treatment?

Mostly, light-skinned people with dark hair are considered ideal for such hair removal techniques. At Nitai Medical and Cosmetic Centre, the cutting-edge laser is used, which works perfectly against any skin type. But, one noteworthy point is that blond hair or grey hair cannot be treated with laser treatment.

Now that you can distinguish myths from facts about laser hair removal treatment, why not give this advanced technique a try? As it makes it that simple to get rid of unwanted body hair and experience soft, satin skin every day, without the pain and pressure of waxing, tweezing, or shaving on every alternate day.

Discover the Complete Story Behind Total Face Anti-Ageing Treatment

total face anti-ageing treatment-min

A Face is our identity. When we look attractive, we feel confident and courageous, ready to face the outside world with a broad smile. But, as time takes its toll, the appearance of dark circles, wrinkles, age lines and creases spoils that impeccable beauty.

There are numerous cosmetic and dermatological procedures available to stop the clock of ageing and rejuvenate the skin. Nonetheless, before setting up your mind about any such cosmetic procedures, let us discover a few basics about ageing process and how the cosmetic treatments such as total face anti-ageing treatment can improve the overall look. After all, when it’s your face on the line, one can never be too cautious.

Understanding the Concept of Ageing

In Australia, statistics show, 63% of women are concerned of their eye bags, 57% of women are worried about volume loss or sunken areas in face and 37% of women find fine lines and wrinkles abysmal.

Ageing Statistics

But, why and how do these wrinkles, dark circles, under eye bags and folds occur?

At young age, our skin is rich in structural proteins like collagen, elastin, etc. so, even when our facial muscles contract after we make facial expressions, they coil back to the former position. Although with time, the facial muscles weaken, and the structural proteins deplete from our skin, thus making the skin lose its elasticity and suppleness. After that, whenever we make expressions, the facial muscles contract but could not relax back immediately. This leaves behind a trail of imprints which we call dynamic (temporary) wrinkles and fine lines. If not interfered, these dynamic wrinkles convert into static (permanent) lines and wrinkles over time.

Again, the youthfulness of face depends largely on the soft fat padding that cushions our cheek, chin and all other facial features. But, as our age multiplies, the volume of the face is reduced due to collagen and fat loss. That is when our cheeks and temples appear bony, our lips look thin and flat, and we develop dark circles, wrinkles and folds. On top of that, due to the effect of gravity, all the mass starts accumulating in the lower face area resulting in the formation of double chin.

Therefore, in brief, the ageing of the face means collagen loss/lack of elasticity, weak facial muscles and volume loss. So, for the complete revival of youth and beauty, each of these causes must be individually dealt.

Concerns Related to Cosmetic Procedures

For altering the marks of ageing, ultimately, people seek resort in various aesthetic treatments. But, to heal the different ageing symptoms, we require specific anti-ageing treatments as one type of anti-ageing treatment cannot smoothen all types of skin ageing issues. For instance, in case of dynamic wrinkles and lines, anti-wrinkle injections work wonders, whereas, for treatment of dark circles and under eye bags, dermal fillers are the best option. Hence, to obtain a natural-looking, youthful skin, the best approach would be to undergo a combination treatment which involves two or three procedures together for a maximized result.

Moreover, if we try to fix or enhance a particular section of the face, there are high chances of annihilating the subtle balance among the facial features, thus, portraying a very fake and unattractive look. So, the focus should be shifted to improving the overall facial appearance with a blend of anti-ageing treatments.

At Nitai Medical and Cosmetic Centre, we understand all those concerns and issues. Hence, we have commenced an innovative anti-ageing treatment called total face, which actively treats the wrinkles, volume loss and double chin.

Concept Behind Total Face Anti-Ageing Treatment

Many people avoid cosmetic procedures because they fear that treating a facial feature will deliver a fake appearance ruining the natural balance of the face. The primary purpose of this total face anti-ageing treatment is to eliminate that concern. Other than that, this treatment focuses on:

 Replenishing the skin to erase wrinkles, frown lines, folds, dark circles, double chin and as such. This treatment does not overemphasize any feature, it precisely improves the volume and reduces the appearance of creases. The result is a fresh, glamorous look which looks very natural.

 Every face is distinct and accordingly, have different requirements. Total face anti-ageing treatment offers flexible customization depending on the type of facial treatments needed. A thorough consultation with a professional cosmetic physician in Melbourne will guide you in tailoring the perfect program for a rejuvenated skin.

 Total Face anti-ageing treatment uses premium quality anti-wrinkle injections, dermal fillers and double chin removal injections to provide excellent results that last.

Why is total face anti-ageing treatment so effective?

Total face unifies three different anti-ageing treatments together to garner enhanced results.

 Collagen loss and volume loss can be corrected with the help of dermal fillers,

 Anti-wrinkle injections are very effective in relaxing the wrinkle-causing weak facial muscles,

Double chin removal injections are appropriate to remove fullness of chin.

Thus, total face effectually rectifies the overall appearance of the face without spoiling the natural balance among the facial features.

What is the anti-wrinkle injection used in total face approach?

At Nitai Skin Clinic in Melbourne, we use premium quality anti-wrinkle injection, which is a special type of protein synthesized from certain lab cultivated bacteria. The injectable liquid relaxes the specific wrinkle causing muscles, thus, resulting in remarkable reduction of creases from the face.

Significant Features:

 It starts showing results within the first two days of the treatment and the effect lasts for at least four consecutive months.

 As the product has been thoroughly tested, the anti-wrinkle injections used in Nitai Medical and Cosmetic Centre, have minimum risk factors. All known risks are discussed with you prior to any treatment by our experienced cosmetic doctor.

 It refreshes the skin without casting a fake, rigid look (must be treated by a professional practitioner).

What is the role of Dermal Fillers?

Dermal filler injections use artificially synthesized hyaluronic acid that replaces the lost volume in the sunken areas of the face. Apart from that, dermal fillers also help in boosting up the collagen production, thus, renewing the elasticity of the skin and refreshing it from within.

Significant Features:

 Premium quality dermal fillers last from 1-2 years, specifically depending on the dosage and the treated area.

 Facial fillers recover the condition of the skin from within, presenting a plush, wrinkle-free, natural-looking skin.

 Since it has very low chances of allergy or inflammation, it is regarded as a product with negligible side-effects. Again, all known risks are discussed prior to any treatment by our cosmetic doctor.

How do double chin removal injections help?

Double chin removal injections are synthetically created deoxycholic acid that dissolves the extra, unwanted fat accumulating under the chin. Without much pain or irritation, this double chin injection defines the jawline and contours the neck, bestowing grace and beauty.

Significant Features:

 It is regarded as the first injectable treatment to eradicate the appearance of swollen flesh under the chin.

 The effect of the treatment lasts for the next four years and after that also, in most cases, re-treatment is not required.

 The advanced double chin treatment is relatively painless (compared to surgical procedures) and does not have severe side-effects. The minor consequences such as subtle pain, redness, swelling, etc. fade away within a week.

Rejuvenate Your Face with Total Face: The All-In-One Anti-Ageing Treatment for A Natural, Youthful Skin

Total Face Anti-ageing Treatment

 

The scorching UV rays from sun, pollution and stressed lifestyle affect the health and freshness of our skin making it appear dull and lifeless, which further triggers the premature ageing of our skin. There is no escape from this harsh reality that with the progression of time, our skin develops hollows, wrinkles, fine lines and folds, bestowing an old and tired look. That is when the various anti-ageing treatments come into the picture.

What is the ageing process?

As the number of years of our existence on earth, i.e. our age increases, our body passes through many internal as well as external changes. This transformation in our body as mentioned below is referred to as ageing.

Skin: As we grow older, the cell renewal process (when the old cells are replaced by new cells) slows down and also the structural proteins and fat layers, arranged beneath the skin, deplete with time. As a result, the external skin becomes saggy and wrinkled losing its natural moisture.

Volume: The plump youthful beauty of face depends on the layers of subcutaneous tissues that adds appropriate volume and structure to the skin. The prominent jawline, lush lips and smooth cheeks lose its volume over the period of time. The lips become thinner and flat, the shape of the face changes and the mass shifts towards the lower section of the face due to pull of gravity.

Muscle: When we make an expression our facial muscles contract but later,   relax back to its original position. Albeit, when we grow old, the facial muscles lose its elasticity and hence, they take longer time to relax back. Those contracted muscles leave imprints deep into the skin that appear as static or dynamic wrinkles over time.

Bones: The basic structure of our face is built by the bones. The layers of tissues and skin are settled over these bones only. When we grow older, the density of bone decreases and their structure also changes slowly. Thus, as time elapses, due to structural difference, the facial features might lose the balance amongst them.

What are the concerns related to anti-ageing treatments?

Even though there are numerous anti-wrinkle treatments available nowadays to keep the lines and wrinkles at a bay, people are petrified of ending up with a disproportionate and artificial look, which generally happens if balance amongst the facial features is disrupted.

Moreover, treating only a section of face cannot improve the overall appearance. For instance, if you have forehead lines, frown lines and dark circles, then, for dark circles, dermal fillers are used to fill up the lost volume. But to eliminate forehead lines or frown lines, anti-wrinkle injections work best that act on facial muscles. For a patient, it becomes confusing to decide on which anti-ageing treatment he/she should rely to remove all the unwanted lines and folds and attain a natural, youthful face.

Therefore, at Nitai Medical and Cosmetic Centre, we have introduced a combination anti-ageing treatment, called Total Face, that asserts effective measures on different sections of our face depending on the distinct skin requirements.

What is the idea behind Total Face anti-ageing treatment?

When our face starts showing the signs of ageing, it does not stay restricted to only a certain area, rather subtle changes start occurring all over our face such as dark circles, volume loss in lips, cheeks and temples, nasolabial folds among many others.

As patients, when we opt for only one type of anti-ageing treatment be it either anti-wrinkle injections or dermal fillers individually, they are not effective against all sorts of ageing symptoms as different cosmetic procedures have different features. Hence, to look youthful and appealing, it is mandatory to take action against every ageing issue at the same time, which is exactly what Total Face does.

At Nitai Medical and Cosmetic Centre, we customize Total Face anti-aging treatment based on the specific requirements of the patients. We include anti-wrinkle injections to erase the frown lines, crow’s feet, etc., dermal fillers to retain the lost volume of under eye areas, cheeks and lips and also double chin fat dissolving injections. Thus, Total Face corrects all the existing age flaws, rejuvenating the natural beauty of the face.

How does Total Face approach prove effective in inducing a natural and fresh look?

Our face can be categorized into three sections: the upper (from forehead till eyes), mid (nose and cheeks) and the lower (lips and chin). When we start ageing, subtle changes occur in all these three sections of our face. Concentrating on the correction of a single facial feature like nose or eyes only spoils the proper proportion of the face. With the option of Total Face, all minor as well as major changes in the face, are corrected by applying different treatment solutions, which also maintains harmony amongst the facial features. Thus, rejuvenating the face and generating a natural and fresh look approved by a majority of Australians.

How does Total Face deal with the ageing process?

In order to wipe out wrinkles and other complaints of ageing and retain a natural look throughout, the important task is to control the rate of ageing in the following layers- skin, volume, muscles and bones. Though bone structure cannot be changed without surgical means, the customization process of Total Face approach enables to stop the clock of ageing in skin, volume and muscles.

a. Anti-wrinkle injections are applied to the facial muscles responsible for wrinkles and folds. The premium quality anti-wrinkle injections used at Nitai Medical and Cosmetic Centre in Melbourne relaxes the specific wrinkle-causing muscles, thus reducing the visibility of any sort of folds, lines or wrinkles quite dramatically. Crow’s feet, forehead lines, frown lines and other such creases in upper, mid or lower section of the face, formed due to ageing muscles, can be treated with this anti-aging treatment.

b. Dermal fillers are synthetically created with a gel-based compound that plums up when it comes in contact with water, hence it is used to make up for the lost volume in our face. Under eye areas, cheeks and lips lose their volume over time and dermal fillers fill those hollow areas, thus capturing our youthful glamour. Dark circles correction, under eye bags removal, lip enhancement, cheek enhancement, volume rectification as well as contouring of facial features can be achieved with this.

c. Double chin removal injections dissolve the extra fat that gets accumulated in the chin area with the growing age. Thus, it defines the jawline and helps in contouring the lower section of the face. In Total face approach, when the ageing process of facial volume and muscles is controlled, the wrinkles and folds on the external skin vanish on its own as the skin is rejuvenated from within. Thus, it eliminates all traces of aging and re-builds a fresh, natural and youthful face.

Less Known Facts About Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers are not anti-wrinkle injections:

Many people carry this false notion that dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections are the same. But, this is very far from the truth, dermal fillers are artificially generated gel-based compound that retains the volume in sunken areas of the face, thus, veiling the existence of dark circles and wrinkles to a great extent. In comparison to that, anti-wrinkle injections relax the facial muscles so that they cannot make unnecessary expressions, hence, limiting the appearance of dynamic folds and lines.

Dermal Fillers do not cause allergy or inflammation when done by a skilled physician after precisely processing all the risk factors:

Many a time, it is heard that dermal fillers cause severe allergy and inflammation, but it is not a general occurrence, it happens when the treatment is not proceeded with precision. The chances of such irritation after the treatment extends when actual collagen from animal bodies is used as fillers, which is mostly avoided by licenced practitioners. Apart from that, the allergy test is also conducted at all the specialized dermatological centres to refute even the slightest possibilities of allergy or soreness. Hence, the possibilities of dermal filler injections to cause allergic reactions is generally negligible.

Dermal Fillers gives a natural appearance:

Contrary to the general belief that facial fillers present a total fake look, dermal fillers actually provide a very rejuvenated appearance. Dermal fillers improve the volume of the skin, define the outlines of facial features, remove wrinkles and folds, instigate collagen production and also hydrate the skin from within. Thus, with dermal fillers, subtle imperfections of our face can be fixed without overdoing it and maintaining the natural feel and look.

The treatment involving dermal fillers cannot be regarded as painful or time-consuming:

Dermal filler anti-ageing treatments hardly take 15-20 minutes to finish one complete session, without any downtime post that. The patients who underwent this treatment have very rarely mentioned any painful experience, but still, for those with sensitive skin, dermal fillers are infused with local anaesthesia to eliminate all the hints of discomfort in the ongoing treatment.

Narratives on Dermal Fillers from our Patients

On asking a few questions regarding the experience with dermal fillers, one of our patients (who prefers to stay anonymous) has provided her feedback, which aided us in understanding the impact of the anti-ageing treatment with dermal fillers.

How did you decide to give dermal filler a chance?

When I started getting under eye circles as well as droopy eyebrows, I booked an appointed appointment with Dr Shobhna Singh from Nitai Medical and Cosmetic Centre, Melbourne. During the consultation, after inspecting my face, she suggested dermal fillers as it replenishes the skin and removes the dark circles, wrinkles and folds. Of course, I continued my own research on it and then decided to go for it as it genuinely improves the skin condition as per the reviews.

How was the experience?

I took help of facial fillers to correct the undereye circles and also to fix the drooping eyebrows perfectly. To my surprise, it worked miraculously. Not only my dark circles were gone, but it fixed my skin and defective eyebrows as well.

Is the treatment painful?

Primarily, when the syringe is injected into the skin, subtle stinging sensation or irritation might be observed at first, which may be followed by slight bruising, redness and pain. But, personally, I didn’t notice anything except the first initial discomfort.

Do you think the dermal fillers treatment gives a natural look?

Definitely. Sometimes, subtle changes can create huge differences and that is exactly what dermal filler does. After my treatment, the eye area looks hydrated and fresh and it transformed my whole appearance but in a very natural way. I look lively and attractive now rather than my old, tired self.

Mention one thing that changed after this treatment.

Well, honestly, since the treatment with dermal filler injections, I have been receiving lots of compliments from friends, family and all acquaintances. It feels great. So, one thing that has changed for certain is that I am a lot happier nowadays.

How may dermal fillers help in achieving your best version?

Every man and woman desires to look spectacular every day, no matter what their age is. With age, though, we eventually part away from that glamour and beauty of youth. The changes are subtle such as the lines and folds in our face become prominent, volume loss in lips, cheeks and under eye areas, but they completely ruin the appeal of the face.

Dermal fillers with its rejuvenating properties can repair all such signs of ageing. With very little downtime and affordable cost, dermal fillers plum up the sagged skin, giving mass to the sunken areas in the face. Thus, it lifts the appearance of wrinkles and folds as well. Since these facial fillers also stimulate the collagen build-up process, so it can be said that dermal fillers refreshes, rejuvenates and rehydrates the skin from within.
Hence, this non-surgical anti-ageing treatment eradicates all the skin concerns very efficiently when personalized as per the skin requirements, thus, unveiling the best version of yourself.

Dermal fillers with anti-wrinkle injections:

Increase in age means a decrease in the elasticity of skin, internal fat padding, and facial volume. As a result, the face develops dark circles, fine lines, folds, and creases, that makes us appear old and tired. Dermal fillers help in eliminating these signs of ageing by re-filling the lost volume and enhancing the elasticity of the skin, but certain dynamic lines such as crow’s feet, frown lines, etc. can be more efficiently treated with anti-wrinkle injections. So, to magnify the effect of the anti-ageing treatment, at Nitai Medical and Cosmetic Centre, we often customize the treatment plan by including both dermal fillers injections and anti-wrinkle injections.

A recent survey has revealed that around 64% of Australian women believe that dermal fillers are more accepted nowadays by the generic crowd than they were five years ago. So, why not give dermal fillers a chance today?

6 Things You Should Know Before You Go for Tattoo Removal

Tattoo Removal at Nitai Skin Clinic

A meaningful quote, a signet of emotional importance or simply a fascinating design of art and beauty…tattoos are the remnants of those memories or feelings that we never wish to forget. But, what if the design of the tattoo goes horribly wrong or what if we want to erase that inked memory completely or what if the design has faded and lost its flair?

That is when we all start searching for tattoo removal procedures on the internet. While surfing, probably you have come across hundreds of websites that provide guarantees on complete removal of tattoos and now you are probably heading towards booking an appointment for laser tattoo removal. But, wait…have you read these 6 basic things about tattoo removal?

Even after all the promises and guarantees made by the skin clinics, there are certain factors that decide how your tattoo removal experience is going to be. So, let us find out how does laser tattoo removal work and all the related basic details on tattoo removal because you do not want to end up with a partial imprint of tattoo or pigmentary damages.

It’s All About Colours:

While picking up a tattoo design, we don’t wonder much about the permanency of the colour but in laser tattoo removal process, colours play a vital role. If the imprinted tattoo is in tints of green, yellow or orange, then the removal of tattoo might require many sessions to completely obliterate the ink from the skin. Even after that, if the laser treatment is not done at a professional skin care clinic, then there are high chances you might have to settle down with residue of a tattoo or ghost images. Whereas, other colours such as blue, black, etc. are easy to remove. So, what is the colour of your tattoo?

Watch Out for Side-effects:

Although laser tattoo removal with Q-switched laser beam is the safest technique for tattoo removal, it might also cause certain side-effects if proper care and precautions are not taken before starting the treatment. Immediate side-effects might be slight irritation, pain, blistering and crusting, whereas delayed after effects might be hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation or skin darkening. To avoid all these, we suggest you visit for consultation at one of the best medical and cosmetic centre in Melbourne as they will guide you correctly and deliver the required before and after care.

It’s Always Best When There Are Options:

Nowadays, laser tattoo removal with a Q-switched laser is considered to be the safest option. Apart from this, there are other effective options which one can opt for.

Tattoo removal using dermabrasion for instance, in which the upper epidermal layer of the skin is scraped out thus presenting fresh ink-free skin below. But, this method is not very efficient in case the ink has reached deep within the skin.

Skin peels for tattoo removal are slightly effective in erasing the existence of the tattoos. In this case, acid peels are applied to extricate the upper skin layer along with the tattooed ink, thus revealing plain skin beneath without any trace of the tattoo.

Also, there are many tattoo removal creams that people choose sometimes, but, unfortunately, it doesn’t remove the tattoo completely. It fades the tattoo to some extent but not completely.

Effect of Psoriasis, Eczema and Other Skin Disorders:

Many a time it happens that due to unsterilized tattoos or sometimes even before tattooing, people suffer from psoriasis, eczema or other skin disorders. In such condition, laser tattoo removal might increase the inflammation and irritation in the affected area, also sometimes, that patch of skin may turn darker in colour after undergoing the laser treatment.

Laser Tattoo Removal Cost in Melbourne:

Another important aspect of Q-switched laser treatment for tattoo removal is that it is pretty expensive. If your tattoo is small in size, then it will take less sessions to get rid of the tattoo, otherwise, for large size tattoos, it may take several sessions. The cost of laser tattoo removal ranges from $50 to $800 per session depending on the inked area.

A Little Care Always Helps:

The number of sessions required to remove a tattoo depends on the penetration of the pigment within the skin. But after each session, your skin might feel a little irritation or pain. So, we suggest you to immediately put an ice pack in the treated skin area, followed by application of an antibiotic cream or ointment in that area. You can wrap it up with a bandage for proper protection against any sort of infection. Also, while leaving home, don’t forget to put sunscreen in that treated area. Although the tattoo removal using laser might cause a little discomfort, these simple caring tips will soothe the irritation and help in fast healing.

We have only one life and we all desire to live it with fun and frolic, without any regrets. Getting a tattoo when your heart desires is also a part of experiencing that freedom and liberty. But with time, we all change and grow up and thus meaning of that once-so-important-tattoo also fades. And so, when it is time to move on, tattoo removal sounds like the best option. So, come, visit us at Nitai Medical and Cosmetic Centre, Melbourne and get rid of unwanted tattoos in the most safe and secured method.

Do You Know What are Acne Causes? Learn The Tips To Cure Acne.

Acne Causes and Cure

 

Unbearable pain, itchiness, scars, and dull skin… the most infamous gifts of acne!

Lucky few get rid of them after the teenage years are over, but, unlucky few like us have to deal with them for a much longer period of time.
Many times, it so happens that we wake up in the morning and half-expect these ugly acnes to just disappear, but, when we stand in front of the mirror, to our utter horror, we find out, they have multiplied…again!!

Face, neck, chest, shoulders and upper arms are the areas that are most commonly victimized by the acne and its stubborn marks. Mostly, all the irritating facial concerns like blackheads, whiteheads, cysts, pimples, nodules and papules fall under acne problem caused by P. acnes bacteria.

Though with the progression in dermatological science, many safe and effective acne removal treatments as well as acne scarring treatments have evolved, at Nitai Medical and Cosmetic Centre, we suggest before investing big bucks on one of these acne treatments, try understanding what is the cause behind acne outbreak. After all, haven’t you heard, understanding a problem is the first step towards solving it?

So, let us find out more about acne causes in order to prevent its occurrence.

 Clogged Pores and Infection:

This is one of the very common acne causes. Due to daily exposure to dirt and pollution, dust and dead cells accumulate in our skin pores, which further combines with the sebum, an oily substance secreted by the glands
located at the base of the hair follicles. This sticky combination of grime, sebum and dead cells clogs the pores of the skin and in time gets infected by P. acnes bacteria, resulting in the outbreak of different types of acne.

Precaution: The only method to avoid acne caused due to this reason is by keeping the face clean. Wash your face with a PH balanced face wash, in the morning and night before retiring to bed. Use of tea tree oil toner once a day will help in destroying the bacteria and also proper exfoliation once a week, followed by anti-acne mask will help in keeping the face clean and pimple free. For better results, one can also try a few sessions of microdermabrasion skin treatment from a dermatologist.

 Hormonal Factors:

A sudden change in our hormonal level might result in the appearance of acne and this is exactly the reason why teenagers get acne after hitting puberty. When we approach adolescence, our body starts secreting dominating amount of androgen which then gets converted to estrogen. This excessive amount of androgen in our body enlarges the sebum glands, thus activating the glands to produce a large amount of sebum content. The exceeding quantity of sebum increases the growth of bacteria, which is one of the primary acne causes in females.

Precaution: Keep your skin clean to fight acne and also improving the diet might help in this case. For instance, avoid munching on oily, greasy food and consume lots of green and fresh vegetables, fruits, walnuts and fish. A diet change will definitely help to get rid of acne if this is the reason behind acne and its tenacious spots.

 Emotional stress:

Stress and strain of our hectic lives not only affect us mentally, but it harms us physically also. The perpetual stress creates havoc within our body, disrupting the hormonal balance completely. Irregular hormone secretion due to stress or depression can activate the glands to produce extra sebum, thus making the skin oily and acne prone.

Precautions: Even in hectic schedules, try relaxing a bit. Yoga or meditation certainly helps in soothing mind. Along with that, try getting proper sleep, it will rejuvenate both body and soul, thus eliminating the acne causes also.

 Greasy cosmetics:

Cosmetic products generally come in two types of bases: one is oil based and another is aqua based. Oil-based cosmetics or creams have a tendency of blocking the skin pores and also it makes skin very sticky, thus attracting grime to the skin easily and suffocating it. Sometimes, after applying a new skin product, we develop certain acne problems, it is because of the oily base that any person with acne prone skin must avoid.

Precautions: Before purchasing any new skin product, check whether it is oil-based or aqua-based. Always buy aqua based skin products as they are easily absorbed in the skin but does not leave a sticky residue on the skin.

 Menstruation:

If someone is having PMS or PCOS or any other menstruation-related problems, then acne outbreak is pretty common. It is, in fact, a symptom of such diseases. Also, during the menstrual cycle, acne appears due to disruption of hormonal balance. So, if menstruation issues are the acne causes, it is best to pay a visit to a doctor.

Precautions: In this case, a consultation with a gynaecologist doctor will be a wise decision. Apart from that, for acne removal, theraclear acne treatment can be implemented for effective reduction in acne occurrence.

 Genetic Factors:

With respect to hereditary connections, sometimes, we inherit the gene that is responsible for acne production, which means if in a family, the ancestors had severe acne issues, then it is possible this acne disorder will transfer to the future generation as well. In such a case, the best we can do is keep our skin clean and use anti-acne cream and other anti-acne skin products.

An Account on Anti-wrinkle Injections: All Your Questions and Queries Answered

Anti-wrinkle Injections Explained

 

In this age of beauty and glamour, the way we look and present ourselves to the outer world has a strong impact on our career and lives. But, with the influence of stress, pollution and harsh sun, the premature aging, age spots and other skin issues have become inevitable in recent times. Inexpensive creams and beauty products cannot repair all the damages done to the skin, hence, the need to seek aesthetic treatments from a skilled cosmetic physician is increasing day by day.

Crow’s feet, frown lines, forehead lines and other fine lines and wrinkles are the most common signs of aging against which anti-wrinkle injections are considered to be most effective. But, when it is your face as well as money on the line, one can never be too cautious. Therefore, before opting for any cosmetic or aesthetic procedure, there are a few essentials that you should be aware of.

Here, we have enlisted all the questions and concerns on our premium quality anti-wrinkle injections that are frequently asked by our patients at Nitai Medical and Cosmetic Centre in Melbourne so that you can take the right decision.

What are wrinkles? How are they formed?

When we conduct any kind of facial expression like we smile or frown, the inner facial muscles contract but later on they retreat back to their original position. But, when we age, the structural proteins called elastin and collagen reduces from our skin. As a result, our skin loses its elasticity. After that, when our face makes any sort of expression, the muscles cannot stretch back to its initial position, thus generating unwanted creases in the skin, which are called dynamic lines and wrinkles. Over time, these dynamic wrinkles turn into static wrinkles, which stays in our face even when the inner muscles are at rest.

Pollution, harmful UV rays, smoking and stressed lifestyle also contributes to the increment of facial wrinkles and folds in the face, thus stealing away its youth.

What are the non-surgical anti-wrinkle injections?

At Nitai Medical and Cosmetic Centre, a special kind of purified protein is injected into the skin to relax the particular wrinkle-causing facial muscles. This protein is derived from specific lab-cultured bacteria, which effectively reduces the appearance of lines and creases while rejuvenating the skin from within. If one wishes to refrain from painful surgeries, then this anti-ageing treatment is a very good alternative.

How do our premium quality anti-wrinkle injections work?

The lines and wrinkles that appear in our face are actually the imprints left behind after the contraction of facial muscles, due to the lack of elastin and collagen proteins in the skin layers. A series of anti-wrinkle injections are applied to those specific muscles that are responsible for creating creases and lines with the help of a fine needle. The injectable liquid then relaxes the muscle, thus arresting it from making any sort of contraction, which in turn stops the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This anti-aging treatment has proved very effective among our patients as it efficiently smoothens the lines without any stern side-effect.

How much time do these anti-ageing injections require to show results?

Generally, to complete a session of this anti-ageing treatment, it requires 10-15 minutes. But, for the effect of the anti-wrinkle injection to surface, it might take nearly 2-3 days and only after a lapse of full seven days, the full action of the treatment can be witnessed.

Is anaesthesia required to sustain pain during this anti-wrinkle treatment?

The premium quality anti-wrinkle treatment used at Nitai Medical and Cosmetic Centre is regarded as painless, compared to other surgical procedures. Although, slight discomfort or irritation might occur during the ongoing process, that lasts only for seconds. Hence, mostly anaesthesia is not required during the treatment.

What is the longevity of the anti-wrinkle injections?

As per our estimation, the effect of the treatment lasts perfectly for four months, but, after that, the folds and fine lines start re-appearing. Albeit, those who frequently repeat the anti-wrinkle treatment might have better and longer effect.

What are the primary regions that are targeted with this premium quality anti-aging treatment?

The wrinkle removal injections prove very impactful against the wrinkles in the upper face area, i.e., around the corners of the eyes and temple, such as frown lines, forehead lines, crow’s feet, etc.

antiwrinkle injections before after

Does this treatment increase the appearance of wrinkles after the effect of the anti-wrinkle injections subsides?

Once the injection is applied into the skin, it relaxes the facial muscles, thus easing the expression lines that appear. With time when the effect of the injection fades, the old lines and wrinkles start re-surfacing. If you do not desire to continue with the treatment, then the condition of the skin goes back to the way it was before the treatment. The halt from the anti-wrinkle injection does not increase the appearance of wrinkles, it merely takes the skin back to its former position.

Will this anti-aging technique freeze our facial expressions as well?

It will definitely not freeze up the facial expressions when done by a professional cosmetic physician. This prescribed drug must be injected into the specific wrinkle-causing muscle only. The untreated muscles stay unaffected and can be contracted easily without any discomfort. The impact of the treatment rests a great deal on the dosage used for the treatment and the skill of the doctor in targeting the precise facial muscles without any error.

What are the possible side-effects of this anti-wrinkle treatment?

When this premium quality anti-wrinkle injection is used in proper dosage, it produces negligible concerns. But, in some cases, this injection might cause subtle discomforts which are temporary and vanishes completely within a week.

Probable side-effects include headache, nausea, pain, burning sensation, itching, swelling, bruising, redness at the injection site, drooping eyelids or eyebrows, and flu-like symptoms. These symptoms pass within a week, but if they persist even after that, then it is best to refer to your physician immediately. All known symptoms are discussed during the consultation with the doctor.

Can this anti-wrinkle injection be used in combination with other cosmetic treatments?

Definitely, the anti-wrinkle injections can be used with other anti-ageing or skin treatments such as dermal fillers, laser therapy, etc. for enhanced results. But, only after a proper consultation from a skilled practitioner, you can understand which combination treatment will be right for you.

When you look beautiful, you feel blissful.

5 Signs That Our Lips Are Aging…What Are Their Respective Lip Treatments?

Lip Treatments at Nitai Clinic

 

Lips with such sweetness in their honeyed deeps. As fills the rose in which a fairy sleeps.

                                                                                           Edward Bulwer Lytton

In the language of poetry, our lips are considered as enthralling as the red velvety rose petals, or as sweet as the golden honey, or as transfixing as the crimson hues of a spectacular sunset.

In our everyday life, lips help us spread smiles, express our feelings for our loved ones with a kiss, or pout with our friends for those fun pictures. So, be it in reality or in fiction, the beauty of our lips makes everything even more beautiful and appealing.

But, did you know our lips can tell us about our age also?

When we are young, our lips are padded with collagen proteins, and so they appear plump, soft and luscious, all the signs of youthful beauty but as we age, due to collagen loss, our lips grow thin and flat giving us an aged gesture. Similarly, there are other signs of lip aging that might make us look older than our real age. Care to know all about what our lips say about our age? Read through and find out for yourself what makes our lips age and the effective anti aging lip treatments available at topmost skin clinics, Melbourne to reverse the effects.

Wrinkled Lips:

We all must have noticed our lips getting wrinkled or chaffed during winter due to lack of moisture, which can be easily rectified by applying nourishing lip balms or serums. The exact reason behind wrinkled lips is not known, but probably after 20, as we start aging, our lips appear wrinkled due to less collagen production or sun damage or dryness. Even at young age, wrinkled lips tend to make you look old and unattractive.

Solution: A visit to a good cosmetic clinic, Melbourne will surely draw you out of this wrinkled lip aging problem. There are several anti wrinkle lip treatments that might reduce the appearance of wrinkles on the lips. Moreover, the aesthetic physician might also refer some good sunscreen moisturizer that will provide hydration and protection to lips.

Thin and Flat Lips:

It is known to all that with age our lips turn slimmer and flat. But, irrespective of their age, some people have thin and flat lips at a very young age also. As per a research conducted by Allergen in 2017 in Australia, 36% of the surveyed women are very much concerned about the volume of their lips. Firstly, because nowadays, thin lips are considered old fashioned. Secondly, it makes the face appear mature and older than the actual age.

Solution: Lip plumper can be used to increase the volume of the lips and make them appear youthful and lush. Also, while undergoing such lip treatments, it’s mandatory to take care not to overdo it as that might result in a completely artificial look which is again very unappealing.

Undefined Lips:

Some of us don’t have a very prominent cupid’s bow, that is the slender arch on the upper lip or the outline of the lips is not very defined. In such a case, lips lose their sensuality and glamour appearing to be very ordinary.

Solution: The advanced lip enhancement technique with dermal fillers may be considered in this case. This anti aging lip therapy accents the outline of the lips and adds up volume to it, thus, enhancing the lusciousness of our soft lips.

Vertical Lines Around Lips:

With elapse of time, along with our lips, our skin area around our mouth also loses collagen and fats. As a result, severe vertical lines arise on the upper lip along with wrinkles and folds surrounding the mouth. Such aging effect varies from person to person depending on the facial structure and collagen loss. This sort of lip aging is mostly seen in case of chain smokers, hence, it is believed that smoking results in fast collagen break down in lips.

Solution: The obvious and secure solution to this is using facial injectables or laser skin treatment in the area around our mouth. A skilled aesthetic physician will be able to provide an effective free consultation on anti-aging and lip treatments, which will help in retaining the youth and beauty.

Dry and Chapped Lips:

Blame it on cold, dry weather or the vitamins deficiency, we sometimes become victims of dry and coarse lips. Dry, withered lips tone down our allure and attraction. Generally, it wears off with time and proper care. But, at other times, when the cracked and dull lips become an unsolved concern, then a visit to nearby skin care clinic, Melbourne, for effective lip treatments become mandatory.

Solution: A light exfoliation followed by moisturizing argan oil helps in revitalizing the lips. Other than that, a mild lip microdermabrasion procedure at a good skin care centre might help in making your lips soft, pink and beautiful.

Beauty is the art of taking proper care of oneself and lips being the symbol of sensuality and sublimity, it definitely requires our special attention.

Let’s make an effort to preserve the lusciousness of our lips so, the only thing that our lips get to say about our age is that we look young and dazzling… always!

Dermal Fillers: The Easy Solution For A Natural Looking, Wrinkle-free Skin

Dermal Fillers_Nitai Skin Clinic

 

The general parameters of beauty are high cheekbones, fuller lips and lively eyes without any hint of dark circles or eye bags. But, with hectic and erratic lifestyle ahead, it becomes truly difficult to maintain those parameters. Wrinkles, vertical lines on lips, thin and flat lips, under eye circles, hollow cheeks and under eyes mitigate the charm and vivacity of the face, thus making us look old and haggard.

Albeit we desperately desire to eliminate every single of those flaw with available anti-aging treatments, but there is always that fear of ending up with a completely artificial and puffed up look. So, to acquire a very natural and rejuvenated look that almost all women in Australia prefer, at Nitai Medical and Cosmetic Centre, we recommend giving dermal fillers a chance.

What are dermal fillers? How do dermal fillers improve our facial features as well as remove wrinkles while retaining our natural look?

Dermal fillers are gel-based compound formed by replicating the chemical structure of natural collagen that plumps up as it comes in contact with water, hence when the dermal fillers are injected in the hollow regions of face, it interacts with the water content present in the inner epidermal layers and slowly puffs up, thus refilling the lost volume in cheek, eye areas, lips, etc.
Unlike many anti-wrinkle injections that freezes the wrinkle-causing muscle, facial fillers fill up the gap within the skin, which appear as wrinkles, thus, leading to a soft and smooth skin in a few days after the treatment. Moreover, the contours of the face can be enhanced and added volume to, with the help of facial fillers rendering a completely natural appearance.

When are dermal fillers prescribed to a patient?

At young age, our faces are padded with delicate fat layers, which gets dissipated with time. As a result, being devoid of the cushioning of fat layers, cheeks, under eye areas and lips appear bony, thin and lifeless. In such conditions, facial filler injections are prescribed to add volume to the shrunken skin and hydrate the skin revealing a plush, young face.

Again, with age, the collagen and elastin responsible for the elasticity of the skin are lost, henceforth, when we smile or frown and our facial muscles contract, it takes longer time to retreat to its former position. Thus, leaving behind a trail of wrinkles, frown lines, nasolabial folds and other fine lines which spoil the facial appearance. In such a case, patients are referred to opt for dermal fillers as their anti-aging treatment because dermal fillers fill up the wrinkles and folds and slowly boosts the collagen formation in skin. Thus, generating soft, natural-looking, youthful skin.

How do dermal fillers help in enhancing the facial features?

In our face, the cheeks, lips, brows, temples and jawlines are a few marked areas where the volume loss is prominent. Over time, these areas lose their sharpness and appeal, for instance, the lips get thinner and flatter, eyebrows start drooping, and as such. Dermal filler injections give a subtle lift that rectifies these errors of aging impeccably. Apart from that, anyone, irrespective of his/her age can define the outlines of lips or make the arch of the eyebrows more pronounced with the help of dermal fillers. Thus, dermal fillers recapture and enhance the tenderness of the delicate facial features.

General Uses of Dermal Fillers

Lip Augmentation:

Lips being an important part of our beauty profile, women of all age want to be blessed with soft, pink, and plump lips. Unfortunately, not everyone is born with defined and fuller lips, hence, dermal fillers fix that issue conveniently, without any discomfort. With the efficacy of the fillers, the arch and the outlines of lips can be emphasized and perfected. At the same time, it gives lips the required volume to make them appear lush and reduce the appearance of vertical lines that cast an elderly look. Hence, dermal fillers are the best tool for lip augmentation or lip enhancement.

Eradicate Wrinkles and Lines:

Dermal filler adds volume beneath the wrinkled skin, thus smoothening the upper skin layer and making it appear supple and hydrated. The wrinkles and folds are visibly reduced after the first session of the treatment. Nasolabial folds, frown lines, etc. are very competently removed with the help of fillers as filler gel lifts up and tightens the skin from inside. Also, the result of the anti-aging lasts for nearly 18 months depending on the quality and area on which the fillers are injected.

How are dermal fillers different than anti-wrinkle injections?

Dermal fillers restore the lost volume of the skin, diminishing the folds and lines in the process. This synthetically produced injectable gel is also regarded as one of the most effective non-surgical anti-aging treatments as it multiplies the collagen build-up, regaining the elasticity of the skin. So, by choosing dermal fillers, one can not only ease out static wrinkles but also rejuvenate and refresh the skin internally.

Whereas, in case of anti-wrinkle injections, the injected liquid relaxes the specific facial muscles that cause creases, thus, limiting the appearance of dynamic lines and wrinkles.

Henceforth, the professional dermatologists of Australia prescribe dermal fillers to those seeking to perfect their overall facial features by rectifying volume loss as well as folds rather than simply erasing the occurrence of wrinkles and lines.

How much time does it take after the treatment to show the results?

Immediately after the treatment, subtle changes can be noticed but with time, the hyaluronic gel draws water and expands in mass, thus, making up for the lost volume.

What is the longevity of dermal fillers?

When done under the supervision of a skilled dermatologist or cosmetic physician, the effect might last for around 18 months or sometimes more than that depending on the quality and amount of filler used.

How much time does it require to finish the procedure?

Dermal filler generally takes 15 – 30 mins to conclude the procedure. Sometimes anaesthesia is also infused with dermal fillers to avoid any sort of discomfort, so, no downtime is required to lift the unwanted wrinkles and embrace a serene and natural beauty.

A research conducted by Allergen on Australian women in 2017, divulged that around 53% of them believe that injectable dermal filler treatment presents a natural and lasting result. So, for natural looking beauty, give the non-surgical filler injections a chance!

Look Fabulous Even in Forties with Hyaluronic Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers | Nitai Clinic

Appearing like 20s in 40s is definitely not possible but looking fabulous in forties surely is. In Australia, nowadays, women are more focussed on possessing a natural yet glamorous look, that’s why the demand for facial fillers is increasing day by day. Dermal fillers fill the hollow regions under eyes, cheeks and around lips, thus, improving or enhancing the overall facial appearance with a subtle yet remarkable touch.

According to a survey conducted by Allergen in August 2017, 65% of Australian women believe that facial fillers or dermal fillers are more acceptable in present society than they were five years ago. Hence, people are getting more and more inclined towards using this anti-aging treatment with facial fillers.

At Nitai Medical and Cosmetic Centre, we use one particular type of dermal filler also known as hyaluronic acid injectable gel, which is extremely safe and has emulated remarkable results. Still, alongside the benefits of this gel as a filler, there are numerous other vital queries about its safety, precautions and side-effects that we need to be aware of prior to starting the sessions. So, let us explore all the details about hyaluronic dermal fillers.

Basics on Dermal Fillers Unveiled

What is this advanced type of dermal filler?

Created from a complex sugar content called hyaluronic acid, also found in living skin tissues, the dermal filler mimics the naturally found collagen. The dermal filler that we use is not synthesized from animals, instead, it is artificially generated in the laboratory, thus mitigating the chances of any sort of allergy or inflammation.
The hyaluronic dermal filler is also infused with a liquid anaesthetic to obliterate even the slightest trace of pain or discomfort in the ongoing sessions.

How does it work?

The hyaluronic acid is a hydrophilic compound, which means it has a huge affinity for water. So, when the dermal filler containing hyaluronic acid is injected into the skin, it draws the water content present beneath the skin and puffs up over time increasing the volume of that area. Thus, it helps in removing wrinkles and folds as well as enhance and magnify the attractiveness of face.

How much time does it take after the treatment to show the results?

Immediately after the treatment, subtle changes can be noticed but with time, the hyaluronic gel draws in water and expands in mass, thus, making up for the lost volume.

How long does it last?

When done under the supervision of a skilled dermatologist or cosmetic physician, the effect might last for up to 2 years depending on the type of fillers used.

What amount of time is taken to finish the whole procedure?

This dermal filler takes 15 – 30 mins to conclude the procedure. Since anaesthesia is also fused along with the hyaluronic dermal fillers, no downtime is required as it hardly causes any discomfort or side-effects that might interfere with the everyday routine of normal activities.

Uses of Hyaluronic Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers for Luscious Lips:

With age, our lips lose its volume and become thin and flat, thus, dissipating its allure and beauty. Also, the edges of the lips droop, vertical lines are formed and the cupid’s bow (V-shaped curve on the upper lip) flattens out as the harsh effects of time starts appearing. In such a case, to enhance the borders of the lips or to plump up the lips, dermal fillers are the safest and effective option without any downtime or painful surgeries.

Removal of Wrinkles:

Dermal Fillers Before After

Lines and wrinkles in our face is a way of our body letting us know that we are approaching towards old age. Due to collagen loss, our face loses its elasticity and hence, after we frown or smile, the skin muscles take time to relax back to its former position. That is when we start noticing lines and wrinkles that we genuinely want to be rid of. Dermal fillers boost the regeneration of collagen beneath the skin, hence, with this anti-aging treatment, we not only increase the volume of the face in the required areas but also repairs the skin from within by reducing all the signs of aging.

Side-effects of Dermal Fillers

Anti-aging treatment with facial fillers is extremely safe in comparison to other alternatives available. Moreover, the hyaluronic acid gel used in this particular type of dermal filler is artificially derived, therefore, there is a negligible chance of any sort of allergy or infection. However, sometimes, some general side-effects might occur such as slight redness in the site of injection, pain, bruising, lumps, itching or discolouration. But, these are temporary concerns that fade away within a week.

More About Dermal Fillers

Can dermal fillers be used in combination with other skin treatments?

For transcending results, hyaluronic dermal fillers can be paired up with other cosmetic treatments such as anti-wrinkle injections, laser therapy, etc. such that the whole face is rejuvenated.

What are the precautions that must be followed after the treatment?

Although it is a very fast and secured procedure, still a little precaution on the way helps to avoid unwanted discomfort. So, a few concrete rules to follow after the completion of the session:
• Try to avoid putting pressure on the treated area or massaging the face for the next 24 hrs.
• For the next two weeks, avert direct sun exposure or extreme temperatures. Other than that, apply broad range sunscreen regularly while heading out for the day.
• Also, it is suggested not to apply any sort of make-up for the next 12 hrs after the treatment.

Time to Take A Closer Look Around Your Eyes – Do They Look Aged?

Signs of Aging | Nitai Skin Clinic

Eyes are regarded as the mirror to our soul, but little did we know that eyes also mirror the signs of aging. The skin around the eyes is certainly the most sensitive and delicate one. Hence, even after restricting to a proper eye care regime, the lines and folds around our eyes is a very common occurrence. These unwanted lines and creases lead to aging eyes.

At Nitai Medical and Cosmetic Centre in Melbourne, we have been cataloguing the issues and experiences of our patients and from the descriptive study of those reports, we have discovered that the signs of aging start developing around the eye areas at first. Under eye bags, dark circles, frown lines, crow’s feet, and as such signs of aging eyes appear on our face as we reach the early 30s. In Australia, around 63% of women have expressed, in a survey, that under eye bags have become one of their utmost beauty concerns nowadays.

Like two dazzling orbs, eyes accentuate our beauty with its glass-like glint and unguarded expression. But, dark circles, lines and wrinkles destroy the charm of our eyes and make us look old, tired and unattractive. So, let us take a closer look at the eye areas and learn what unpleasant changes occur surrounding our eye regions and the range of treatments that help us to escape the aging eyes.

Why does our face changes with age?

At young age, our face produces sufficient amount of structural proteins such as collagen and elastin that keeps our face soft and supple. But, as we all know, with age, cell regeneration process of our body slows down, thus, resulting in slow formation of collagen and elastin.

Also, our erratic lifestyle, smoking, aging, etc. causes collagen protein to break down in our body over the due course of time. Ultimately, slow rate of collagen formation and its fast break down results in high collagen loss in our face, thus reducing the elasticity of skin. Due to which, when we frown or smile or procure any expression, our facial muscles contract but lack of elasticity restrains them from relaxing back to their former position. Thus, the imprint of the facial expressions etches deeper in the skin in form of static wrinkles, frown lines, and folds.

Along with collagen, the subcutaneous layer of fat padding over the facial skeleton is responsible for the youthful, plump look of our face. But, with time, this fat padding also perishes, thus, creating hollow areas surrounding eyes, cheeks, etc. The much-disliked dark circles or under eye bags, which are the signals of aging eyes, are also caused by the occurrence of fat and collagen loss in our face.

What are the facial changes that contribute to aging eyes?

• Forehead Lines:

When we raise our brows, the forehead muscles contract. Continuous contraction of these muscles etches straight horizontal lines in the forehead, which gives a very old and unappealing look.

• Frown Lines:

Frown lines make us appear angry most of the times even when we are not, thus, spoiling the charm of the face.

• Crow’s Feet:

Crow’s feet appear in the sensitive skin around the end corner of the eyes. Basically, caused by the facial muscle movement during smiling and squinting, they become permanent over the period of time.

• Bunny Lines:

Bunny lines are created at the bridge of the nose after repeated muscle contraction but with time, they might become permanent.

• Drooping Brows:

Over time, due to volume loss in face as well as gravitational pull, the eyebrows of our face becomes drooping. It gives a very old and unattractive appearance.

• Tear Troughs:

The collagen loss from under eye areas leaves that region hollow and dark, thus, lending that area a very tired and exhausted look.

• Skin Pigmentation:

Skin pigmentation might appear at any segment of the skin. It might be anything starting from freckles, age spots, rosacea, broken capillaries and uneven skin tone.

• Emaciated Temple:

Volume loss in temples presents a bony look to the sides of the forehead by revealing the very prominent skull from beneath the skin.

What are the available treatments to beat these signs of aging eyes?

Dermal Fillers:

Dermal Fillers Before After | Nitai Clinic

As preferred by numerous Australians, dermal fillers restore the loveliness and youthful look of our face by filling out the hollow regions under eyes. Dermal fillers are synthetically created to imitate the naturally found collagen that improves the facial appearance and at the same time, rejuvenates and hydrates the skin, thus depleting the tear troughs, dark circles, undereye bags and as such other signs of aging quite efficiently.

Anti-wrinkle Injections:

The anti-wrinkle injections are applied to relax specific facial muscles, which are responsible for causing wrinkles and folds. These are very skilfully applied in the forehead and upper eyelid regions to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet, tear troughs, forehead lines, frown lines, etc.

Lasers:

In the modern field of dermatology and cosmetology, Laser therapy has become a safe (with a well understood risk profile) and very competent source to replenish the skin and abolish the unwanted existence of wrinkles, lines and pigmentation from the skin. Fraxel Laser and Revlite Laser are two of the best choices to treat the eye area without any discomfort or irritation as they are non-invasive. Apart from that, the laser therapy stimulates cell growth and helps in skin tightening, thus improving overall skin quality.

Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy:

In this process, the body’s healing properties are taken into consideration to treat the fine lines, folds and other aging indications. A little sample of the patient’s blood is extracted at first, then the platelets are separated from the fluid and injected into the concerned area. This anti-aging treatment naturally cures the stubborn dark circles as well as undereye and upper eyelid lines and wrinkles. This platelet rich plasma therapy is suitable for delicate skin areas as it tightens the skin, lifts the wrinkles and also nurtures the skin from deep inside with least chances of side-effects or pain.

Eyes not only make us look beautiful, but it also helps us see the beautiful world, so it is always wise to protect them properly. At Nitai Medical and Cosmetic Centre, we suggest to always keep the surrounding eye areas hydrated and nourished. Also, don’t forget to wear a broad-range sunscreen and sunglasses while strutting out for the day.
