Concerns

When it comes to your appearance, whether a longstanding or recent concern, whether a small or substantial issue, Face Secrets Medical can help you. Have that refreshing look with our Appearance Medicine.

Crow’s Feet

Crow’s feet are fine lines that form at the corner of both eyes, which can get deeper as we age due to repetitive muscle movements over the years. They can be very obvious in some individuals and make them look older than their actual age. Treating Crows feet with Botulinum Toxin Type A will relax the muscle, soften the lines and maintain your natural look.

Frown Lines

Frown Lines are the vertical lines between the eyebrows, they get deeper and more obvious as time passes by and as long as we continue to frown, softening the muscle will delay the formation of static lines (obvious facial lines at rest). Frown Lines are also called anger lines and make people look angry without one’s intention. Treating Frown lines with Botulinum Toxin Type A will relax the muscle, soften the lines and maintain your natural look.

Forehead Lines

Forehead lines are the horizontal lines of the forehead which form over time due to repeated muscle movement during facial expression. Treating Forehead lines with Botulinum Toxin Type A will relax the muscle, soften the lines and maintain your natural look.

Smoker’s Lines

Smoker Lines are the fine lines that form around the mouth which can be more noticeable in smokers and regular straw users. Lack of skin care and continuous exposure to UV light without sunscreen protection will worsen smoker’s lines and facial lines in general. Treating Smoker lines with Botulinum Toxin Type A +/- Dermal fillers will relax the muscle, soften the lines and maintain your natural look.

Face Slimming

Non-surgical facial slimming or jawline reduction is used to slim down the jawline by reducing the volume of the chewing muscle known as the masseter muscle. (This is also performed to reduce teeth grinding, otherwise known as ‘bruxism’, and to help improve the pain of Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction). Facial slimming creates a more youthful and softer appearance to the face. Botulinum Toxin Type A administered directly into the masseter muscle to give more of a V shape to your face.

Excessive Underarm Sweating

Hyperhidrosis is defined as sweating in excess of what is required to regulate body temperature Affected patients are hampered in occupational and social situations, leading to diminished physical and emotional well-being, difficulty in personal relationships, and social stigmatization. Botulinum Toxin Type A has emerged as an important treatment option for patients plagued with focal hyperhidrosis. The toxin temporarily preventing the hyper-stimulation of eccrine sweat glands that leads to excessive sweating. Several randomized studies have shown that Botulinum Toxin Type A is a safe, effective, and durable method of treating patients with hyperhidrosis. Research demonstrates that patients who have been unresponsive to topical antiperspirants are injected with Botulinum Toxin Type A, they experience a 75% reduction in sweating and a noticeable improvement in emotional and physical well-being. The effect can last an average of six to nine months, with high patient satisfaction rate.

Facial Rejuvenation with PRP

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma ) is performed by taking a blood sample in a special tube, which will be put into a machine called a centrifuge to separate  the red blood cells from the plasma, then the  plasma, which is rich in platelets, will be  injected directly in to the facial skin resulting in facial rejuvenation. PRP aims to restore a youthful appearance to the face and improves your skin’s texture and tone. Using Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is one of the non- surgical options in Appearance Medicine. It is a simple and safe procedure using your own blood to do the job.  A course of treatments involves 3-4 appointments, spaced 1 month apart, and results can be maintained with a single repeat treatment every 6-12 month.

Hair Loss

Baldness typically refers to excessive hair loss from your scalp.  The use of PRP is a good treatment option for male and female pattern hair loss.
