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 premature ageing?

The only difference between normal ageing and premature ageing is the timeline. This is because ageing— though a natural process—can be sped up by a range of factors. Premature ageing refers to a condition where the signs of ageing occur earlier than is standard. This could be linked to many factors around us, such as unprotected exposure to sunlight, harsh cold weather, lack of adequate sleep and lifestyle habits. For example, we effortlessly speed up the ageing process just by getting a tan or going out in the cold.

Smoking and drinking alcohol also play huge roles in speeding up the ageing process, such as the smoker’s lines developing around the mouth or lines on the forehead due to the skin being deprived of nutrients and oxygen. Studies show that smoking can activate enzymes that break down the elasticity of your skin.

Genetics also plays a role in how quickly we age.

What happens to the skin when we age?

Although fine lines, wrinkles, and grey hair are generally the first things that come to mind when we talk about ageing, other signs include the formation of sunspots (also called age spots), dry or itchy skin, sagging skin and sunken cheeks or temples.

This is because ageing affects our skin in a variety of ways. Examples include:

Sebaceous glands produce less oil and the skin produces less hyaluronic acid as you age, making it harder to keep the skin moist and resulting in dryness and itchiness.

The breakdown of collagen and elastin fibres causes the skin to sag, stretch, and lose its ability to snap back after stretching.

Loss of fat below the skin in the cheeks, temples, chin, nose and eye area may result in loosening skin, sunken eyes and a “skeletal” appearance.

What can I do to slow down the ageing process?

The good news is that taking preventive measures can significantly reduce the risk of premature ageing.

While ageing is inevitable, there are several steps you can take to slow down the process. These include staying out of strong sunlight, applying a quality sunscreen or even taking a holistic approach by eliminating other factors that could be causing you to speed up the ageing process, such as alcohol, smoking, etc.

Also, make sure to use the right products for your skin and take into account that whatever goes into your body takes effect on your skin.

But if you need – or want – extra help to keep your skin in shape, we offer a wide variety of safe treatments such as injectables, microneedling and skin peels.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where do you first notice the signs of ageing?

The first signs of ageing often show up as fine lines around the eyes, also known as Crow’s Feet. Soon after, fine lines start developing in the upper lip and nose areas.

As our skin matures, the 7 signs of ageing start showing on it:

Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Dark circles and puffy eyes

Sagging skin

Visible pores

Dullness and Pigmentation

Dry Skin

Age Spots

Why do lines and wrinkles form on my face?

Once you hit your 20s, your skin produces 1% less collagen every year. Elastin production also decreases as you get older. Collagen helps keep our skin firm and supple, whereas elastin is the stretchy, fibrous element that helps our skin to ‘snap back’ after movement.

Each time you use a facial muscle, a groove forms beneath the surface of the skin. And as skin ages, it loses its flexibility and is no longer able to spring back in place. So, constant repetitive movements such as squinting and smiling can lead to lines and wrinkles.

Does stress have an impact on ageing?

Yes. Stress doesn’t just make a person feel older. In a very real sense, it can speed up ageing. Stress ages you faster as it shortens the DNA telomeres, and as the structure weakens, the cells age faster and die. High amounts of cortisol — the stress hormone — can break down the skin’s collagen and elastin and form wrinkles.

What do you recommend I do for ageing skin?

There are many different ways to alleviate the signs of premature ageing though it helps determine the cause first.

You can use these basic steps to help:

Exfoliate to increase skin cell turnover,

Strengthen the dermal matrix of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid,

Reduce Hyperpigmentation and discolouration,

Optimise hydration levels within the skin,

Protect with Antioxidants,

Protect against UV rays.
