Botox—often associated with cosmetic wrinkle reduction—is an effective treatment for excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis).
Excessive sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis can affect a patient's quality of life. Commonly seen in areas like scalp, underarms, hands, feet and groin.
The treatment is done as an outpatient procedure. Numbing cream is applied to the treatment area up to one hour before the injections. The affected area is cleaned and multiple aliquots of Botox injection with a tiny needle are given. Minor Bruising, swelling, or tenderness is possible.
Patients typically start seeing results within 5 days, with full results after 2 weeks.
There is a spectrum of spasms/ twitching which can affect the lids and face present as constant, uncontrolled, involuntary movements of lids and or/face. These occur due to injury, neurological diseases, stress, facial nerve compression (blood vessel, tumour), neurotransmitter imbalance
These can cause physical, psychological and social impact on a patient's life. Common complaints include:
Inability to open eyes
Intolerance to bright light
Dry eyes, irritation, blurring of vision
Deviation of mouth
Difficulty in swallowing and drooling of saliva in severe cases
You may be advised for brain imaging. Treatment options are:
Medications – under supervision of the neurologist
Brows are the foundation of a face and play a critical role in determining our expressions of being sad, angry, tired or surprised. However, sometimes due to ageing, injury, paralysis or previous surgeries, brows droop and cause excess skin to fall over the crease causing eyes to look smaller and heavier. This condition is called droopy brows or baggy lids.
A patient normally is not aware that the brow is droopy or lids are baggy but may complain of:
Heaviness of eyes
Extra skin on the lids
Eyes looking smaller
Asymmetry of brows
Inability to wear eye-shadow
A brow lift is a procedure to lift, restore, and fill the droopy, descended and floppy brow and correct baggy lids. At Clinica Fai, we provide both surgical and non-surgical brow lift treatments.
The patients might complain of cosmetic blemish, hollowness under the eye, tiredness, grogginess and feel sleepy. A bespoke plan needs to be created for each patient based on the extent and severity of dark circles.
Treatment protocols are complex and more than one treatment might be needed including:
Injectables (such as Botox and Dermal fillers) are a non-surgical, minimally invasive anti-ageing facial treatments for shaping chin and jawline.
A younger face looks more like a V (or triangle of youth). It consists of high cheekbones, fuller cheeks, and a sharp, well-defined jawline. As we age, this V becomes inverted because of changes in our skin, soft tissues, and the bony structure (sometimes referred to as the "Pyramid of age"). The face becomes more oblong, cheeks flatten out, and jowls become more visible.
There is a descent of the chin and loss of the well-defined angle between the jawline and the neck. The neck muscles separate and lose tone, creating vertical bands. Fat is deposited below the chin area, leading to blunting of the neck and chin angles.
Reshaping and restoring of the inverted V around the chin and jawline can be achieved using Botox and dermal fillers. Botox can be used to reduce the appearance of a cobbled, bump chin and a smoother, more even and elongated appearance of the chin can be achieved.
A sagging jawline, especially jowls, can be treated using dermal fillers to replace the volume loss A smoother, more contoured jawline can also be created using Botox to treat the neck muscles and the grinding muscles (masseter) which contribute to a sagging jawline by pulling the face down.
Minor Bruising, swelling, or tenderness is possible. Patients typically start seeing results within 5 days, with full results after 2 weeks.
