Non-surgical facial rejuvenation

Non-surgical facial rejuvenation may include a combination of treatments such as botulinum toxin, hyaluronic acid dermal filler, skin boosters (e.g. profhilo), or polynucleotides (e.g. nucleofill).

Non-surgical facial rejuvenation

The Process:

1. Consultation: During your initial consultation, Mr. Sadideen will discuss your concerns, expectations, and medical history. He will assess your facial anatomy and recommend the most suitable treatment plan. He may recommend that you return another time (e.g. to think over the options, or because you are on antibiotics and recovering from a cold etc).

2. Treatment: Non-surgical facial rejuvenation may include a combination of treatments such as botulinum toxin, hyaluronic acid dermal filler, skin boosters (e.g. profhilo), or polynucleotides (e.g.  nucleofill). Each treatment will be customised to address your specific needs.

3. Some of the most effective treatments offered:

   - Botulinum Toxin: This treatment involves injecting a purified protein (commonly referred to as BOTOX) to relax specific facial muscles, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and lines. Mr. Hazim Sadideen very carefully selects which muscles to “weaken” in order to give you the result you are looking for. He has developed his own specialist “baby botox” technique for patients who want a very natural result. Patients may require a top-up if they need a stronger result. Visible effects are seen within 3-7 days, with full results in about 2 weeks. The results last up to 4 months.

   - Hyaluronic Acid Filler: This involves injecting dermal filler (of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural constituent of collagen) deep on to bone, or more superficial into the fat compartments, or directly under the skin. These fillers come in different levels of thickness; this is how different fillers can be used for different indications, such as restoring volume, softening lines, and enhancing facial contours. With these fillers, results are almost immediate, although there is a different recovery period depending on the location/type of filler injected; Mr. Sadideen will explain will this to you prior to injection. Results can last 6-18 months, depending on the type and location of filler.

-Skin boosters (e.g. Profhilo): This is a specific type of injectable filler, containing the highest concentration of hyaluronic acid, and is mainly used to rehydrate and “boost” the skin, leading to collagen stimulation. It is mainly used on the face and neck, but Mr. Sadideen also regularly uses this in specific anatomic sites (e.g. cleavage, arms, back of the hands). Profhilo leaves the appearance of “lumps” for up to 24h, whilst the product diffuses and settles. The recommended treatment is 2 sessions per area (although this depends on clinical assessment), and the treatment may need to be repeated again in 6 months.

   - Polynucleotides (e.g. Nucleofill): This innovative treatment is extracted from salmon DNA (filtered and purified from their sperm). They are biocompatible (i.e. naturally fragment within our cells) and stimulate collagen production and improve skin texture and elasticity via a regenerative process. It is a newer bio-stimulation treatment that can target multiple skin/tissue levels. It comes in different forms (soft, medium, and strong) which can be used to target different facial or body areas. Mr. Sadideen has used these in the face, buttock, and arms for more complex cases—please ask to see his images and results. Like Profhilo, it may leave “bumps” for up to 24h, and these usually settle within 24h, although with the thicker form (and in patients with thin skin), these may last up to 48h. The procedure may need to be repeated a couple of times, a month apart, to achieve the desired results.

   - Light Eyes Ultra: This is a specialised treatment that Mr. Sadideen uses to rejuvenate the under-eye area (and sometimes the upper eye lid too), addressing concerns like dark circles, puffiness, and fine lines. It contains vitamin C, minimal hyaluronic acid and some botanical extracts. This is often combined with other treatments for patients who do not want volume but want a refreshment and gradual tightening of the skin. Results are typically noticeable after one treatment but are short-lasting, with optimal results achieved after a series of sessions.

-PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma): Also referred to as the “vampire facial”, PRP is harvested from your own blood. A small sample of blood is taken from your arm and centrifuged (via specialist PRP kit). This separates the blood content so that the red blood cells are discarded and the plasma is left behind. This yellow/straw coloured liquid (which effectively is the plasma) contains the platelets that can stimulate the skin. Mr. Sadideen has used PRP to provide patients with a “facial glow” and an element of skin improvement, but has also used it in recalcitrant cases of painful joints and scars to improve healing and recovery (as there is some data to support this). In facial rejuvenation, the face may appear red for a few hours, and when combined with other treatments, longer-lasting effects are seen.

4. Post-procedure complications

While non-surgical treatments are generally safe, there may be some risks associated with them, including:

- Discomfort during or after the procedure (which can be minimised with topical anaesthetic cream prior to treatment)

- Temporary bruising or swelling

- Allergic reactions (rare)

- Infection (very rare)

- Asymmetry or irregularities (uncommon)

5. Follow-up

Mr. Sadideen and his team will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and address any concerns you may have.
