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 😁

No More Stubborn Lip Wrinkles

What are Smoker’s Lines?

Smoker’s lines, also known as lip wrinkles, are tiny vertical lines that etch on the lips and may extend upward towards the nose. These notoriously difficult to conceal lines are often first noticed when lipstick starts to ‘bleed’ out of the vermilion border (the sharp boundary between the lip and the adjacent normal skin.) If not tackled in time, they can form deeply ingrained wrinkles and negatively impact someone’s overall facial appearance.

What Causes Smoker’s Lines

Ageing is one of the leading causes of smoker’s lines. As we age, our skin produces less collagen and, as a result, becomes thinner and less elastic. Given that the skin on the lips is particularly prone to dryness, it’s even more likely to develop fine lines.

Smoking is another major contributing factor to the formation of lip wrinkles. For one, the free radicals produced when someone smokes result in premature ageing of the skin. On top of that, the repeated pursing of the lips to draw from a cigarette causes fine lines that can develop into deeper wrinkles over time.

Other potential causes of smoker’s lines include overexposure to sunlight and constant puckering of lips. This means even if you never smoked in your life, you can still get smoker’s lines from constantly sipping through a straw, whistling a tune, pursing your lips in frustration, or even overdoing it on those duck-face selfies. Smoker’s Lines are better known as Barcode lines, not everyone who develops these lines have a history of smoking!

How do I Get Rid of Smoker’s Lines?

If not tackled in time, smoker’s lines can form deeply ingrained wrinkles. Therefore the recommended approach is that you start seeking solutions when you first notice these lines forming. Potential treatment courses include dermal filler injections, laser treatments, home-based skincare regimes, or avoid pursing your lips completely—the last might not be very practical.

Smoker's Lines Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if I need treatment for my Smoker’s Lines?

While smoker’s line can appear on anyone, some people are more susceptible than others.

Vertical lip lines usually start to show up in your forties and by the 50s, they can become quite pronounced. As we age, our skin produces less and less collagen (causing the skin to become less firm and supple.)

If you often experience unprotected sun exposure, pursed your lips or smoke a lot, lip wrinkles can show up much earlier in life.

How do you treat smoker’s lines?

We typically treat these lip wrinkles with dermal fillers. Usually made from hyaluronic acid—a substance found naturally in the skin—these fillers can have a significant smoothing effect on lip lines. Fillers offer the most effective non-surgical method for treating smoker’s lines and usually only requires a small volume injected into precise locations along the lips.

Patients like this treatment because:
• It’s subtle yet effective.
• The downtime is minimal.
• Better looking, fuller lips.
• Smoothens the area above the lip.

It’s important to note that if you wait to treat them until they become deeply ingrained, it might mean more intensive treatments or less satisfactory results.

How long will the results last?

The results typically last 6-9 months, although the exact length of time will depend on the structure of your skin and other factors such as lifestyle and age. We will recommend when to get additional touch up treatments after the initial treatment.

Is this a safe treatment?

This is a very safe procedure in the hands of our highly experienced cosmetic doctor. It’s imperative to find an experienced practitioner who’s trained in the latest cutting edge-techniques and is focused on natural-looking results. Common side effects include redness, swelling and mild lumpiness. But these usually resolve within a few days.
