Fat grafting into the scar

Fat transfers use processed fat from the patient’s own body to elevate depressed scars. The procedure also is known as microlipoinjection or autologous fat transplantation. Fat cells are removed by liposuction from the donor area – usually from around the navel or from the thighs or buttocks – using a small needle attached to a syringe. The fat cells are cleansed and processed, and then injected into the scar area using a blunt needle and syringe. Because there is a fairly high rate of re-absorption of the fat cells into the body, the doctor will likely overfill the treated area.

What you should know about fat transfers?

Doctor will mark injection points on the scar before cleansing it with an anti-bacterial agent. A topical numbing agent, ice or a local anaesthesia is applied to keep the patient comfortable during the injections. Fat is removed from another part of the body, usually the buttocks, abdomen or thighs. The fat is then processed and cleansed before being injected beneath the scar with a very small needle. Sometimes patient experience stinging or burning as the filler is injected.

What to expect after the procedure?

Most patients can immediately return to work after treatment. Minimal pain may occur after a few hours. Ice packs are applied at 10-minute intervals for six hours following the procedure. Patients may experience one or more of the following reactions at the injection sites:

  • Swelling that may last for several weeks or months
  • Bruising
  • Redness
  • Possible scabbing

Pain relievers are prescribed if pain become intolerable. Patients will be required to take antibiotics following the procedure. A follow-up appointment will be necessary to monitor progress and to determine if additional treatments are necessary

What are the possible risks of fat injection?

Allergic reaction risk is minimal in fat transfers since the procedure uses the patient’s own fat instead of filler materials.

These include:

  • Bleeding from injection sites
  • Swelling and bruising
  • Redness and tenderness at injection sites
  • Uneven texture of the skin
  • Infection
  • Abscesses
  • Areas that may be overfilled or under filled

Microneedling in Coimbatore

Microneedling RF treatment

Microneedling RF treatment

RF MicroNeedling is usually one step in a multi-therapy acne scar treatment plan. For patients with deeply sunken-in scars (Box car and Ice Pick scar types), elevation of these deep scars usually occurs prior to RF MicroNeedling, which will help to put the finishing touches on skin texture and smoothness

RF MicroNeedling works to smooth out the acne scars that plague so many people by stimulating new collagen and elastin in the deep layers of the skin, while bypassing the most superficial layer which is most prone to side effects and prolonged downtime

How it works?

RF MicroNeedling uses very tiny microneedles (smaller than the diameter of a hair) to deliver safe radio frequency energy into the deeper layer of the skin where collagen and elastin fibers form support structures. The polarity of the energy emitted creates arcs of energy between the microneedles, delivering energy below the skin’s surface to remodel the skin without the visible top-layer downtime of previous technologies.

Subcision for Scars

This simple local anesthesia procedure is designed to improve depressed scars resulting from acne scarring or any scar resulting from trauma or surgery that is depressed below the skin level.* Many of these scars are depressed because of loss of skin thickness or tethering of the scar to deeper tissue. The creation of a new scar beneath the depressed scar combined with transection of the tether to underlying tissue produces an elevation of the scar.* This procedure can typically be performed on single depressed lesions or on a hundred acne scars of the face in one sitting.

What is done in this procedure?

During a subcision procedure, the patient is asked to mark each of the scars that he/she dislikes. These areas are marked and then numbed with local anesthesia. A special needle is used to create a pocket beneath each scar that releases any tethering and creates new scar tissue below the depressed scar. The resultant action during the healing process is to elevate the depressed scar. It is common to see improvement of each scar with a single subcision treatment. Multiple treatments are typically required to achieve the dramatic outcome that patients thought they could never achieve.

PRP Theraphy

What is PRP?

Although blood is mainly a liquid (called plasma), it also contains small solid components (red cells, white cells, and platelets.) The platelets are best known for their importance in clotting blood. However, platelets also contain hundreds of proteins called growth factors which are very important in the healing of injuries.

PRP is plasma with many more platelets than what is typically found in blood (PRP = Platelet Rich Plasma). The concentration of platelets — and, thereby, the concentration of growth factors — can be 5 to 10 times greater (or richer) than usual.

How does it work?

Although it is not exactly clear how PRP works, laboratory studies have shown that the increased concentration of growth factors in PRP can potentially speed up the anti-aging and rejuvenation process.

What does the treatment involve?

We withdraw a small amount of your own blood and use the plasma for your cosmetic treatment.

Botox

What is botox treatment for skin?

From fixing those fine lines to controlling excessive sweating, there are many benefits of Botox injections. The toxin is produced by the microbe that causes botulism, kind of food poisoning. As people age, repeated facial expressions wrinkle the face and simultaneously reduce the levels of elastin and collagen, causing it to sag. Botox treatment for face boosts production of collagen and elastin, which make your skin tight, firm and flexible. Beyond aesthetic applications, it is also used to treat some medical conditions such as bladder and bowel disorders, muscular disorders, migraines and excessive sweating.

Why is Botox injection required?

As aforesaid, Botox blocks chemical signals that cause muscles to contract. Botox injections may help you treat-

Wrinkles – Botox injection cosmetically removes wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing muscles and treat certain muscular conditions. Botox is injected into muscles, where it blocks nerve impulses to those tissues. It relaxes the facial muscles that cause wrinkles such as forehead furrows, crow’s feet and frown lines between the eyebrows.

Eye twitching – Botox is FDA approved to treat eye muscle problems. It helps relieve twitching of muscles around the eyes.

Bladder – Botox injection will help restrict the bladder’s rate of constriction and the speed of urethra to eject urine.

Lazy eye – Botox can effectively improve the appearance of the lazy eye by lifting the brow and lid above a lazy eye.

A migraine – Headache or a migraine is caused by stress in your shoulders and neck. Botox can treat these muscles to remain in a relaxed state. It has been extremely successful in reducing headache frequency if you are experiencing migraines for more than two weeks a month. There are no side-effects of this treatment, whereas medications may have a host of side-effects.

Excessive sweating – Botox will seal some of the pores and paralyze over-active sweat glands, thus giving you control in sweating.

Muscle contractures – Botox injection can relax muscles in some neurological conditions such as cerebral palsy where it causes your limbs to pull in toward your center.

How is Botox injection given?

Botox injections are administered by trained medical professionals. First, the areas to be treated are cleansed with a non-alcoholic cleanser. It is further directed by diluting the powder in saline or liquid as Botox comes as a crystalline substance from the manufacturer. Your doctor uses a thin needle to inject the small amount of Botox into your muscles or skin. The injections take about 10 minutes and have no downtime afterward. It takes about 3-4 days for Botox to take effect as it needs time to disrupt the synaptosomal process. It may take 5 days or more in rare circumstances. Doses of Botox should be spaced at least 3 months apart.

Is Botox injection painful?

Needles used for Botox injection are very small, so there is minimal pain during the procedure. Your doctor may also numb the area using a topical anaesthetic cream 10-15 minutes before the procedure to make you more comfortable.

What happens after Botox?

Botox treatment is usually done in the doctor’s clinic. You can get back to your normal routine after the procedure. Make sure that you do not rub or massage the injected area as it can cause toxins to migrate to the different area. You may be able to see the results after 2-3 days of treatment and the effect may last longer (up to 3-4 months) depending on the problem being treated. The muscle activity will gradually return to normal as time passes. So, you will need regular sessions to maintain the result.

What are the side effects of Botox Injection?

Botox injection is safe when performed by an experienced cosmetologist and risks are minor with this procedure. Possible side-effects are-

  • Eye dryness and droopy eyelids
  • Allergy reaction such as bruising, bleeding, and redness

  • Muscle spasms or twitching
  • Pain or swelling in the treated area
Who is not a good candidate for Botox?

  • Have drooping eyelids
  • Have weakness in your forehead muscles
  • Have had facial surgery
  • Planning to undergo surgery
  • Have asthma
  • Have a skin infection in the treated area
What should you know about Botox treatment?

Using this medication more often than prescribed will not make it more effective, but may result in serious side effects.

Do not undergo Botox injection from more than one medical professional at a time. If you have to do, make sure you tell your new doctor about your Botox history.

Side-effects of Botox are temporary and you may look normal within three months after an injection.

Your body develops antibodies to the Botox after repeat injections, leading to less recovery time.

Shave your underarms a day before you are scheduled for excessive sweating Botox injection. Also, do not use a deodorant or perfume for a day before injection.

Botox should not be used for people who have a previous allergic reaction to the drug, pregnant or lactating women.

Chemical peeling

What is chemical peeling?

A chemical peel is a skin rejuvenation procedure in which a chemical solution is applied to peel the top layer, which gives you smoother and younger looking skin. It works by removing the dead skin cells from the skin surface to allow new healthy cells to grow back. It is one of the popular nonsurgical cosmetic procedures used to treat skin problems such as scars, skin discoloration and wrinkles.

How does chemical peeling work?

Chemical peeling in India is one of the most preferred treatments for correcting skin tone and pigmentation. This treatment involves applying a chemical solution that helps peel off the dead skin layers. This procedure can help remove blemishes, reducing pigmentation, fixing acne problems and giving skin a better and improved texture than before.

It can give your skin a completely new and glowing look. Chemical Peels treatment is most popular in women/men who are soon going to get married or have some big event coming up. As much as it makes your skin look radiant, this treatment is comparatively quicker than other skin treatments and the results last longer as well.

What are the types of chemical peel?

There are mainly three types of chemical peels that are used to treat patients based on their requirements and skin condition. These types are as follows:

Superficial Peels – These are the mildest type of peels and can be used for all skin types. In most cases, a liquid containing mild dilute acid is used. Glycolic acid is more often used. Sometimes dry ice or solid carbon dioxide may also be used.

Medium Peels – Medium peels are a little stronger than superficial peels and soak deeper into the skin. They cause a burn of the skin. Usually Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) is the main agent used in medium peels. Medium peels may also be done in various steps using a different chemical liquid followed by TCA.

Deep Peels – Deep Peels soak way deeper in the skin than superficial or medium peels. They go deep into several layers of skin and cause a burn. Deep peels tend to bleach the skin so may not be used on darker skin types. These are used only on the face and mostly a chemical called phenol is used in deep peels. In most cases, deep peels can be done only once.

Why a Chemical Peel and how it is performed?

Based on your aesthetic goals, the area on which the treatment is to be carried out and the thickness of one’s skin, all these factors play a major role in choosing and carrying out a treatment. Your aesthetic requirements help the doctor to determine the type and depth of the peel.

The first step of the procedure is to clean up the skin thoroughly. Your dermatologist may prep your skin by using medications such as glycolic acid, Retin –A and may even suggest antiviral or antibiotics. And then the chemical solution including salicylic acid, lactic acid, TCA or carbolic acid is applied to the target area on the skin.

The patient may feel a burning sensation for not more than five to ten minutes followed by a pricking sensation during the procedure. However, your doctor may suggest a cold compression or a pain medication relieve the pain during or after the procedure.

What are the benefits of chemical peeling?

Acne – As the chemical solution is applied to the skin, it exfoliates the outer layer of the skin, which allows dead skin cells to shed more effectively. This process curbs the pimples and acne by keeping dead skin cells and excess oil from clogging the hair follicle. It reduces the appearance of acne marks and scars, giving you smoother and vibrant skin.

Hyperpigmentation – Hyperpigmentation occurs due to an increase in melanin, the pigment responsible for giving color and pigment to the skin. It appears in different forms such as melasma, sun spots or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. An acid solution used in chemical peeling peels the outer layer of the skin, leading to the removal of any sun spots or freckles. It will take around 6-7 peels to get the best results.

Enlarged pores – A chemical peeling for the face is used to remove the outer damaged layers of the epidermis with the help of an acidic solution. Soon, a new epidermis will form with smaller pores. It improves the appearance and texture of the skin. However, a chemical peeling cannot change the size of the pores, but it can make your pores look less noticeable.

Wrinkles/fine lines – When the skin cell production slows down and the top layer turns flaky, it makes wrinkles deeper and more noticeable, particularly on the face and neck. Chemical peel before the wedding can help makes wrinkles and fine lines look less visible.

Minimal pain – Chemical peel is typically an outpatient surgical facility or office-based procedure. You may experience a little tightness or tingling during a procedure. Pain relief is generally not required for a light chemical peel, your doctor might give you a painkiller or sedative for a medium chemical peel and if you are undergoing a deep chemical peel, your doctor will numb your skin with a local anesthesia.

No recovery time – You will be able to see results in just a few days with little to no recovery time. However, the recovery time depends on the type of peel directed as each type of peel affects the skin to a different extent. A light chemical peel requires virtually no recovery time, a medium chemical peel requires 3 to 5 days of recovery time and a deep chemical peel require 7 to 10 days for complete healing.

The advantages of chemical peels are many and all the three types of peels help deal with different issues of the skin. The deep chemical peels are kept for the worst type of skin problems including serious acne, scarring and birthmarks.

What are the side effects of chemical peeling?

Below are some of the side effects of chemical peeling-

  • Heart, kidney or liver damage- As chemical peel involves carbolic acid (phenol), which can damage the heart muscle and causes the heart to beat irregularly. It can also harm the kidneys and liver.

Hypopigmentation is more common after a deep peel whereas hyperpigmentation is more common after superficial peels.
  • Scarring - A chemical peel, especially deep peels like phenol can cause scarring. Steroid and antibiotics are recommended to soften the appearance of these scars.
  • Skin breakout - As the chemical peeling exfoliate the upper layer of the skin, it can bring dead skin cells up to the surface of the skin in the form of spots. It is somewhat common to experience breakouts after getting peels done.
