Had hyperhidrosis botox treatment with Dr. Farmah recently and saw fantastic results. He explained the procedure well and the injections themselves weren’t painful. I saw a 90% reduction in sweating after one week, and Dr. Farmah also gave me a two week follow up appointment. I’m super pleased with the results; this treatment will definitely make a huge difference to my everyday life. The price is also a lot lower than what many other clinics are offering. Would highly recommend!

I've been visiting Dr Aesthetica for a year and a half now, and always look forward to my visits. The whole team are a real delight, lovely to chat to, and have a wealth of knowledge and expertise. I've had several different treatments, and am looking forward to trying some new suggestions. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

I researched a number of clinics in depth and Dr Aesthetica was one that really resonated with what I was looking for from a clinic I wanted to undergo treatment with- professional, knowledgeable and thorough. I have had bad experiences in the past with a different laser clinic that I had undergone treatment with many years ago, where my laser was extremely painful and ineffective. With this is mind, it really emphasised the importance for me of doing my own research to understand what I was looking for from a clinic. To me the results of my laser hair removal are just as important as the experience and service. After my initial consultation with Kiran at Dr Aesthetica I knew it was the right clinic for me based on all of the knowledge shared , I was confident I would receive the professional treatment and experience I was looking for and I have received nothing less than that :-)Kiran has been really informative and has continued to be since my first consultation she has taken the time to educate me on the treatment I am receiving and ensures I understand the science behind my treatment. She has made me feel at ease and really comfortable throughout my sessions and has taken the time to go through everything step to step so I know what to expect during each session. She has been so patient with me as I initially felt very nervous anticipating the same piercing feeling I experienced at the previous business I was using for laser hair removal. However once I had my patch test and started undergoing my treatment with Kiran I was pleasantly surprised at how at how little the pain was in comparison to what I was used to, I would describe it to be pain free!I was even more taken back after seeing visible results after my first laser session on the area that had been treated. I noticed a significant reduction in growth after my first session which I was extremely impressed with. Kiran has been ever so patient and professional throughout, her attention to detail when carrying out my treatment makes me feel at ease. She is always very thorough and takes her time to go through aftercare treatment with me and keeps in touch to see how I am getting on after my treatment.Choosing Dr Aesthetica Clinic for my laser hair removal has been a decision that I wish I made a lot earlier! I am looking forward to completing the rest of my hair removal journey with the clinic. Kiran has been amazing and the laser hair removal treatment has been life-changing for me. I used to remove hair from my problematic area on a daily basis. After my second session my daily chore of shaving was becoming a distant memory- I am 3 sessions in and I no longer have to remove my own hair daily and I feel a lot more comfortable in my own skin! All of the team at the clinic are so friendly and welcoming.As a very happy customer - I would highly recommend Dr Aesthetica!Thank you to all the team for making me feel like a very valued customer x

I don't normally leave reviews, however on this note I have made an exception.Having my first procedure came with heaps of questions, all of which were answered in a calming way to ensure I would stop being nervous. The clinic was very welcoming and calming on the day of the procedure and I left with a smile on my face.Knowing about the other services Dr. Aesthetica offers, there is no doubt I will be returning soon.There was professionalism from the consultation all the way through to the procedure. Thank you

I had the tear trough filler done from dr aesthetica and the procedure went amazingly well. I came to dr aesthetica with a insecurity and he made me feel so comfortable and I ended up with the result I have always wanted. Any after care advice or information I needed was explained to me in full detail and I built a close bond with them. I will always come back here for any treatments and would recommend this to everyone! I was unsure about the risks and this put me off getting the tear trough filler however, having done thorough research and meeting dr aesthetica it all went extremely well.

Dr Farmah is very professional and informative. I feel confident in asking any questions and any concerns I have are answered honestly and truthfully. I have been for a top up for bruxism (teeth grinding and clenching) and within the first three weeks I noticed my headaches have disappeared and my clenching at night time went away. Although this came back (day before my top up) which I was told was nothing to worry about. Either way, been a pleasurable experience and beneficial personally. Everything is thoroughly explained before treatment, and the staff are very welcoming too! Oh and the top up was included in the price of first Botox treatment which was a bonus for me 😁

What is Acne?

Acne is a common skin condition that occurs when hair follicles (pores) become blocked with sebum (oil) and dead skin cells. This often results in symptoms such as whiteheads, blackheads, pimples or spots.

Anybody can get Acne at any stage in their life, from adolescent age right up to old age. This can cause embarrassment or make a person feel shy or anxious.

What Causes Acne?

There are 3 major factors that contribute to Acne:

  • Hair follicles (pores) are blocked by dead skin cells.
  • Overproduction of sebum.
  • Build up of P.Acne bacteria in the pores resulting in inflammation.

For example, the follicle wall may bulge and produce a whitehead or a pore gets congested with bacteria and oil and forms a blackhead.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Adult Acne Real?

Yes, adults get Acne. Some adults continue to get Acne well into their 30s, 40s, and even 50s. “I’m not a teenager anymore, why do I still have acne?!” This is a question we hear from patients frequently. It is even possible to get Acne for the first time as an adult.

For example, some women experience acne breakouts for the first time during menopause. This is likely due to a drop in estrogen levels or an increase in androgen hormones like testosterone, causing the sebaceous glands to enlarge and produce more sebum. Fortunately, there are treatments for adult acne.

Where can I get Acne?

Acne typically appears on the face, though it can also appear on the back, shoulders, neck and/or chest. This is because these areas of skin have the most oil (sebaceous) glands.

Are there different kinds of Acne?

Yes! The following are common types of blemish associated with Acne:

  • Whiteheads
  • Blackheads
  • Pustules, which are commonly called pimples
  • Papules
  • Cysts
  • Nodules

 Each one looks slightly different and can be attributed to the same or different factors.

Are there different types of Acne severity?

Yes! Dermatologists rate them on a scale of Grade 1 to 4. The higher the grading, the more severe the Acne. Also, Acne can be classified into two categories: Noninflammatory and Inflammatory Acne. Inflammatory Acne is more severe than noninflammatory Acne, and this type is more likely to cause complications, such as scarring or pitting.

Is Acne caused by having Oily skin?

Yes and No. In some people, the sebaceous glands can produce too much oil. This creates oily skin. Acne can be caused by the overproduction of sebum, though other skin types such as Dry Skin or Normal Skin can still get breakouts.

Does food cause Acne?

Contrary to popular belief, there’s no scientific proof that eating chocolate, sugar, or greasy food causes Acne. That said, some people do find that their breakouts get more severe when they eat too much of a particular food. If you’re one of them, it’s worth trying to cut back on that food to see what happens.

Is Acne caused by having Oily skin?

Yes and No. In some people, the sebaceous glands can produce too much oil. This creates oily skin. Acne can be caused by the overproduction of sebum, though other skin types such as Dry Skin or Normal Skin can still get breakouts.

How do I get rid of Acne?

There are many different ways to alleviate Acne breakouts though it helps determine the cause of the Acne first.

You can use these basic steps to alleviate Acne:

  • Gentle exfoliation to remove excess oil and dead skin build-up
  • Reduce P.Acne Bacteria
  • Control Sebum Production
  • Not touching your face
  • Protect skin against inflammation and UV damage
  • Use “noncomedogenic” skincare and makeup products

There are also several over-the-counter remedies, such as topical and oral medications. Over-the-counter topical products that contain ingredients like benzoyl peroxide, resorcinol or salicylic acid can often help mild Acne.

What Are Our Acne Treatment Options?

If your Acne persists, you have acne scarring, or the self-care solutions are not working, it’s best to talk to a professional. At Dr Aesthetica, we recommend Skin Peels or Microneedling for acne treatment. All of our skin peel and care products are sourced from AlumierMD—a revolutionary range of clinically proven and high-grade products that can be hyper-customised and tailored to your skin concerns.

For microneedling, we use SkinPen Precision, a device that has validated all FDA requirements. There is minimal downtime with these treatments. Our skin specialist will discuss all the benefits with you during your appointment. Also, an aftercare kit is given post-treatment and its always best to use it as instructed for the best results.

Treatment for Acne: Microneedling/ Skin peels/ Homecare

Acne can be treated with skin peels, Microneedling or homecare. Acne occurs when hair follicles (also known as pores) become blocked with dead skin and oil, leading to whiteheads, blackheads or spots. Treatments such as Microneedling and skin peels help turn over new skin cells and help eliminate any dead skin cells by reducing the pore size and stimulating new tissues, and restoring the skin texture and tone.
