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 Oily Skin?

Oily skin is simply the result of the overproduction of sebum. Under the skin pores, there are sebaceous glands that produce natural oils called sebum. This helps keep your skin hydrated and healthy. However, oily skin forms when your skin produces an excess amount of sebum, resulting in an increasing amount of build-up, which leads to acne, clogged pores and inflammation.

What Causes Oily Skin?

Genetics: Oily skin tends to run in families. If your family has a history of oily skin, you’re likely to have overactive sebaceous glands, too.

Weather: People living in hot, humid climates are more likely to have oily skin. That’s why people often complain of oily skin during the summer. Also, during this time, the oils on your face will be more likely to mix with sweat and clog your pores.

Wrong skincare routine: Oily skin can be brought on by using the wrong skincare products for your skin type. Washing your face or exfoliating too often strips away too much of the oil from your skin. This can cause your sebaceous glands to go into overdrive producing even more oil to make up for the loss.

How do I prevent oily skin?

The key to preventing oily skin is bringing the overproduction of sebum under control. For example, there could be an imbalance in the skin’s hydration, causing it to overproduce sebum when you wash your skin too much. In this case, to control the amount of oil you produce would require having a set skincare routine. On the other hand, when oily skin is caused by genetics or hormones, it’s can be challenging to prevent it

Frequently Asked Questions

Is my diet the cause for my oily skin?

Research shows that processed foods and those high in sugar can cause inflammation in the body, which harms the skin and stimulates the production of androgens which trigger sebum overproduction. In general, a diet full of too much sugar, dairy and gluten without enough healthy omega-3 fats, zinc, probiotics, vitamins A, C, E and protein can be attributed to acne and oily skin.

Are there Skin Treatments For Alleviating Oily Skin?

There are effective treatments available that can manage and control the over-production of sebum to keep the skin healthier, limit inflammation and the risk of associated conditions like acne breakouts. Here at Dr Aesthetica, we offer a range of treatments that address the underlying problems of blocked pores, excessive oiliness, and inflammation while improving the overall texture and health of your skin. Skin Peels and Microneedling are great examples of some of the treatment options we offer

What hormones cause oily skin?

Hormones and oily skin seem to go hand in hand. Androgens are the hormones mainly responsible for oil production, and sometimes they can fluctuate, stimulating an increase in sebum production. This often occurs during puberty, pregnancy, menopause or just before menstruation. Stress and illness can also trigger extra hormones to be released, resulting in oily skin.
