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 😁

Scars & Stretch Marks

Treatment for Scarring and Stretch Marks can vary dependent on several factors such as:

  • Location on the face or body
  • How much area they cover
  • How long you have had them

That being said, there are a number of treatments available at Dr Aesthetica that can help soften, smoothen, and breakdown Scarring and Stretch Marks.

Though Scars and Stretch Marks are often not physically painful, they can affect a person’s confidence and self-esteem. If you have Scars or Stretch Marks, you probably wish they’d go away. While you can’t totally eliminate them once they’ve formed, there are some steps you can take to make them less noticeable. A course of Microneedling and Skin Peel treatments can assist with this.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a scar?

A Scar is an area of fibrous tissue that forms during the body’s natural healing process from trauma such as injury, diseases, skin conditions such as acne, or surgeries. Scars come in many shapes and sizes. If you have two or more scars, you may notice that the two scars look very different.

What is a stretch mark?

A Stretch Mark is a type of scarring that’s formed during a rapid expansion of the skin during periods of growth and body changes. Yes, stretch marks are a type of scar. Most commonly, they can occur during puberty and pregnancy, with up to 90 per cent of women get stretch marks during pregnancy. All the same, stretch marks can appear on anyone on just about any part of the body.

How is a scar formed?

Scars are formed when the deep thick layer of skin (Dermis) is damaged and the body forms new collagen fibres to mend the damage. A scar can develop as a line (from cuts), a pitted hole (from acne or chickenpox) or abnormal overgrowth (Keloid or Hypertrophic).

How are Stretch Marks formed?

Stretch Marks are caused by rapid growth or over-stretching of the skin tissue. Although the skin is fairly elastic, when it’s overstretched, the normal production of collagen (the protein that makes up the connective tissue in your skin) and elastin ( the protein responsible for skin bouncing to original shape after stretching or contracting) is disrupted. This causes scar formation, and as the skin heals, stretch marks may appear.

Microneedlinng For Scar Treatment

One of the best of these treatments for scars is microneedling and for good reason. Microneedling is a safe, fast, and efficient way to smoothen and even out scarring by breaking through the already formed scars. In turn, this will stimulate and induce new collagen production into the area. This results in scars with less defined edges and a softened, smoother texture. Microneedling can be used to treat various types of scars and works on all skin tones (research shows that the process does not cause hyperpigmentation.)

How can Microneedling help Stretch Marks?

Microneedling can help smooth out the appearance of stretch marks and stimulate the production of collagen. At Dr Aesthetica, we use the SkinPen Precision – a medical-grade microneedling tool which is by far the best in the market.

How can Skin Peels help with Scars?

Skin Peels can lessen the appearance of superficial scars by stimulating the turnover of skin cells and improving the firmness, including smoothing out the skin’s tone and texture.

How Many Sessions of Microneedling Scars Treatment To See Results?

Following each microneedling scar treatment, there should be an improvement in the appearance of the scarring. However, to achieve the best results, a course of treatments will most likely be needed (at least 3 to 6 sessions). During your appointment with our Aesthetician, we will advise you accordingly after a comprehensive assessment. That being said, results vary from patient to patient based on several factors, including how old the scar(s) is, how deep the scar(s) is, the tissue texture around the scar, the evenness of the scarring, etc.

How Many Sessions of Microneedling Stretch Marks Treatment To See Results?

The number of sessions needed will depend on various factors, including:
  • How old the Stretch Marks are
  • How deep or extensive the Stretch Marks are
  • The tissue texture around the Stretch marks and surrounding area

Usually, 3 to 6 sessions would be required to see an improvement though we will advise you accordingly. We will also provide you with some aftercare guidelines to ensure you get the best results.

What Areas Can I Have My Scars and Stretch Marks Treated?

You can have Microneedling undertaken almost anywhere on the face, body and scalp. But if you get injured, get an infection in that area, or even simply just get acne in that area, then you need to wait until this heals up completely.
