Cosmetic Aesthetics Procedures

cosmetic procedures-min



Botox ® (botulinum toxin) is a naturally occurring substance that stops the normal contraction of muscles. It is used in plastic surgery to treat wrinkles on the face by preventing the contraction of the underlying muscles. It is also used by plastic surgeons for the treatment of hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) of the armpits, palms, and groins.

At The Health Suite, we understand how important it is for cosmetic procedures to be carried out by the right hands, which is why this treatment is provided by our Plastic Surgeon, Mr Sankar.

Botulinum toxin injections are administered as an outpatient procedure. The surgeon marks the areas to be injected. It is then injected with a very fine needle in carefully regulated doses into the muscles that are responsible for the formation of creases and wrinkles.

Patients with hyperhidrosis of the armpits can also be injected in the outpatient department. Occasionally a white anaesthetic cream is applied to the skin one to two hours before the injection to decrease the discomfort of the injection.

The areas that have been injected can be slightly bruised or swollen. The swelling and bruising usually resolve within a week.

The effect is not visible until one to three weeks after the injection and lasts for approximately four to six months. Patients who want a sustained effect need to have a repeat injection when the effect wears off.

Dermal fillers

Depending upon the cause and depth of wrinkles, they can be treated with the use of synthetic fillers.

The procedure is similar to the injection of botulinum toxin and the consultant will discuss the appropriate method of treatment with you following a consultation and examination.
