Innovations in Medical Aesthetics

With 2018 just a few weeks away, it’s the perfect time to make sure you are well prepared to welcome the New Year. Here are 2 innovative non-surgical cosmetic procedures that can make a tremendous difference in your appearance and send your confidence levels through the roof!

  • Micro-Needling
  • Vampire Facelift

Micro-Needling: This procedure stimulates the production of new collagen fibres by the induction of microscopic wounds on the skin surface. This is done with a hand-held device that has very tiny needles. A numbing cream will be applied prior to the procedure so you do not feel pain. As these microscopic wounds heal, there is production of new collagen and elastin that keeps your skin soft and supple.

Vampire Facelift: Also known as Dracula Therapy or Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy, this innovative procedure utilizes the body’s natural healing power to slow down and in some cases even reverse signs of aging.

Using a patented technique, Dr.Najia Shaikh will inject a hyaluronic acid filler to optimally reshape key areas of your face. Next, about 2 teaspoons of your own blood will be drawn using a syringe (not a vampire!) and processed to obtain platelet-rich plasma (PRP). The PRP is then activated to release growth factors. When the PRP is injected into the target areas on your face, it stimulates the production of collagen and new blood vessels.

The procedure can result in improved tone and texture of your skin as well as about 15% increase in facial volume due to revitalization of your tissues.

As Dr. Shaikh is a practicing GP as well as cosmetic physician, you can rest assured that your skin condition or cosmetic concerns will be appropriately addressed.
