It gives me immense pleasure to welcome you back to our clinic. It’s wonderful to see both familiar and new faces trusting us with their aesthetic concerns. While many of us will be venturing out after 3 months of self-isolation intrepidly, it has given us time to prepare for the “new normal”. This means adapting to the changes ahead. During the lockdown, our resident doctor Dr. Shwetha Sandeep and I enjoyed conducting several online consultations and connecting with so many of you, both within the UAE and internationally.
My priority is to continue to deliver our treatments and procedures safely to you with the results we are known for. In order to do so, we have ensured a 20 minute gap between each appointment to guarantee ample time to disinfect the treatment rooms and to avoid crowding in the common areas.
Upon arrival at the clinic, we kindly request you to wait in your car until the treatment room is ready and the reception area is clear for you to wait in order to maintain social distancing guidelines. The clinic is sanitised daily with hospital grade sanitisation detergents along, with a fortnightly professional sanitisation as an extra fumigation boost.
On arrival, it is standard procedure to check temperatures of everyone entering the clinic. You will then be directed to sanitise your hands. We have many sanitisation dispensers dotted around the clinic, as well as gloves and masks readily available. Our staff is ready to welcome you with masks, face shields and gloves with the same cheerfulness you are familiar with. Our teas, coffees and refreshments are served in disposable paper cups. Paulo, our lovely concierge, is always happy to assist.
This month given the emphasis on wearing masks, we are dedicating this newsletter to all things eyes, the most visible part of our face and the windows of our soul. Moreover the eyes give away the tell-tale signs of aging, exhaustion & facial expressions. Below we have a list of treatments suited to almost everyone who is looking to brighten, widen & smile with their eyes.
As the clinic director, it is my responsibility to ensure my staff and all our visitors are within a safe, clean and positive healing environment. Our team, led by Dr. Shwetha, the nurses, therapists, client coordinators, cleaners, concierge and myself are always available to ensure you walk out feeling positive as your wellbeing is paramount.
As a convenience, Dr Shwetha and I are happy to continue conducting online consultations on request.
We love your feedback, so do please take a moment to leave us a review on Google or Instagram and spread some much needed love.
MonaWe look forward to seeing you soon.
With love & Biolight.
FACIAL: PRP DERMAPEN
PRP dermapen is a leading anti-ageing treatment that uses one’s own plasma to stimulate collagen and elastin renewal and help improve complexions. This results in smoother, radiant and more youthful looking skin. At Biolite, the PRP Dermapen is one of our most sought after treatments for acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, skin texture and an overall rejuvenation of the skin.
As a result of its unique micro-needling system, collagen and elastin stimulation occurs naturally with minimal epidermal damage and maximum coverage, unlike manual injections. This method greatly enhances rejuvenation results and is far safer for the clients as a result of less epidermal damage. This method is far less painful in comparison to traditional dermal rollers and injections and as it is able to work closely around the eyes safely, diminishing fine lines, dark circles and droopy eye lids.
Furthermore, PRP dermapen’s vibrating function increases the effectiveness of treatment by enhancing absorption of products such as active collagen and vitamins that are applied to the skin during the treatment, while reducing pain and discomfort. The Dermapen can be safely combined with other treatments for maximum results such as Ultherapy, Ematrix, IPL and chemical peels.
PRP dermapen is effective for:
• Skin tightening, lifting and rejuvenation
• Improving acne scars and wound healing
• Improving wrinkles and fine lines
• Minimising pore size and uneven skin surface
• Improving stretch marks
• Treating and improving alopecia and general hair loss
• Lightening hyperpigmentation with active serums
No one wants to hear the words ‘you look tired’. If you’re one of those people who own more eye creams and concealers than spoons and forks, we feel your pain. If you hate being told how tired you look in spite of chugging green juices and sleeping 10 hours a day – then read ahead.
One of the most common complaints we hear from our patients is how tired they look – no matter how active and healthy their lifestyle is or how often they slather expensive serums and creams under their eyes. By the time you’re through reading this, you’ll be an expert in understanding how to fix your eye concern. Each concern is followed by the most effective treatment suitable for it, but in our opinion nothing works quite like a good ol’ combination therapy – best decided on consultation.
For those with excessive hollowing/darkness under the eye:
Hold a mirror and look up so that the bright overhead lighting hits you directly. Now click a selfie in this position. Have a look at your photo. If the hollowing disappears or improves – then you’ll benefit from under eye fillers. If it’s still as obvious as before – that’s pigmentation which needs correction. Now let’s talk about each of these treatments in brief.
Under eye hollowing require hyaluronic acid – a naturally forming hydrator that forms small droplets along the tissue that gently expand over the following few days. The treatment is mildly uncomfortable, has instant results that get better over the next two weeks and lasts for 8-12 months at least.
For those with pigmentation and mild hollowing under the eyes:
FOTONA Smooth Eyes delivers safe energy to the loose tissues around the eyes and stimulates collagen while significantly tightening the area. FOTONA incorporates 2 laser systems – one that treats the deep tissues (corrects hollowing) and one that treats the surface (corrects pigmentation). There is little downtime and the procedure is comfortable. Sessions have to be repeated once monthly for 3-4 months for a significant difference. Treatments are best combined with retinol eye creams.
For those with mild eyelid hooding and lax skin around eyes:
Endymed Intensif uses Micro needling Radiofrequency to cause controlled trauma to the skin. This in turn signals the brain to rescue and repair the damages which boost more collagen. Win-Win! Sessions have to be repeated once monthly for 3-4 months.
For those with smile lines around the eyes Aka Crow’s Feet:
I’ve got one word for you – Botox. It’s a simple logic. Every time you smile, the muscles around your eyes contract – causing the skin above it to contract as well. Botox relaxes these muscles so your skin doesn’t wrinkle anymore. You’ll still have your smile lines but they won’t be as deep. And don’t worry about having Zero expressions. Frozen Faces are our biggest pet peeve so you’re in safe hands with us!
For those looking for a brow treatment:
Brow treatments are many to count off. A gentle eyebrow lift so as to open your eyes and make you look well rested. A brow asymmetry correction – remember brows are meant to look like sisters, not twins! Or you may want to experiment and try a beautiful eyebrow peak – just to give your face a slimmer and more feminine touch. Botox helps all these and then some more. Results last for 3-4 months. Sessions are painless and we promise you – you won’t look back once you start your ‘tox.
For those looking for elevating their look:
Ultherapy is the only US FDA approved device to deliver a non-surgical facelift without significant downtime. Ultrasound waves heats up your tissues and contracts your collagen to give you brilliant results right from the get go. We always recommend OTC painkillers to make your experience more comfortable. Results last for 12 – 18 months which makes it a worthwhile investment.
For those looking for a quick pick-me-up:
Looking for an airbrushed under eye before a special occasion? Endymed Contour is an amazing device that softens the under eye wrinkles with immediate results and zero downtime. Radiofrequency energy that’s used in the machine – is about the same energy used globally to lift and tighten the face and body, so we know it works wonders!
