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 😁

Bruxism

Reduce painful teeth grinding

What is Bruxism?

Bruxism is a painful condition that affects many people and is often untreated. Most people probably grind and clench their teeth from time to time and may not need any treatment. But when teeth grinding and clenching is occurring more frequently, it can damage the teeth and cause a myriad of unwanted symptoms. People suffering from this condition are often unaware of its existence because the involuntary teeth grinding and clenching usually occurs at night when they are asleep (sleep bruxism) or subconsciously during the day(awake Bruxism)

What causes Bruxism?

Bruxism doesn’t have one definite cause. Most often, the cause of Bruxism from one person to the next differs. For example, Bruxism is often linked to stress, whereby some people will clench their teeth when anxious, angry, or stressed. Sleep Bruxism is sometimes attributed to sleeping disorders or genetics, which means it may run in the family. Other probable causes of Bruxism include medication side effects, malocclusion, But further research is needed to understand the possible causes of Bruxism better.
  • V shape Jawline with Botox use to slim Jaw and thin Face.

Bruxism Frequently Asked Questions

Common symptoms of Bruxism to watch out for:

1. Headaches or sore jaw when you wake up
2. Earaches yet there’s no problem with your ears
3. Stiffness and pain in the jaw joint
4. Disrupted sleep-sometimes the teeth grinding may be loud enough to wake up the person sleeping next to you!
5. Worn down teeth leading to increased sensitivity and even tooth loss
6. Broken teeth or fillings
7. Overdeveloped masseter muscle

Treatment Options for Bruxism

Often treatments can include using mouth guards or mouth splints. But these are very expensive, with custom made mouth guards often costing several hundred pounds. Unfortunately, these don’t actually treat the problem and only delay the inevitable while often leading to poor quality of life.
Another option is getting a reductive coronoplasty—a dental procedure that involves the reshaping or leveling of the teeth’s biting surface.
But traditional treatments have been ineffective at treating the pain and masseter hypertrophy associated with chronic grinding and clenching of teeth.

Treating Bruxism using Botox

Here at Dr. Aesthetica, we suggest using Botox to treat Bruxism. Multiple studies have shown that botulinum toxin(Botox) injections can reduce the pain and frequency of teeth grinding while also relieving the stress in the surrounding masseter muscle. Botox works by relaxing the jaw muscles, which in turn results in less clenching or grinding of teeth and significantly less pain. Patients often report a significant improvement of symptoms within a week and report having the “best sleep in ages.”
Botulinum toxin is a safe and effective treatment for patients who grind or clench their teeth, develop temporal-mandibular joint(TMJ) pain, or have masseter hypertrophy(wide and square-shaped jawline).
