COSMETIC MEDICAL TECHNOLOGIES ADAPTED TO TREAT MEDICAL PROBLEMS
Cosmetic medicine is one of the fastest moving specialities in Medicine. Our two principle Cosmetic Doctors, Dr Neville Lee See and Dr Grace Lin have adapted many of the techniques pioneered in cosmetic medicine to treat a diverse variety of medical problems. For over 16 years they have been using their laser and injectable techniques to treat conditions such as rosacea, chronic pattern headaches, bruxism (teeth grinding), facial assymetry resulting from Bell's Palsy or stroke, scar revision and excessive sweating. These minimally invasive procedures pioneered in Cosmetic medicine are often a safer and more efficient way to treat traditional medical problems.
Kiora's doctors can use precisely placed neurotoxin injections to relax the large chewing muscles to prevent both voluntary and involuntary teeth grinding. This helps preserve the enamol of the teeth, relieves jaw, TMJ, shoulder and neck pain and helps reduce the size of an over large jaw. It is far safer and quicker alternative to traditional jaw surgery.
Chronic headaches often result from chronic tension patterns through the complex facial muscles, By using precisely placed neurotoxin injections the patterns of tension can be relieved and often results in a dramatic improvement in the frequency and severity of headaches.
CORRECTING FACIAL ASSYMETY RESULTING FROM BELL'S PALSY OR STROKES?
This is amongst the most challenging of medical problems to treat and requires a detailed knowledge of facial anatomy and skilled precise placement of neurotoxing injections to improve facial symmetry whislt maintaining natural expression. Dr Grace and Dr Neville have immense experience in achieving the best possible cosmetic result whilst maintaining as much normal exprssion as possible.
HYPERHIDROSIS AND EXCESSIVE SWEATING
Cosmetic injections can reduce sweating of the underarms, face, hands and groin area for up to 12 months. The procedure is a far safer and less expensive alternative to traditional surgery like endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy.
Depending on the depth, age and severity of the scar a wide variety of cosmetic technologies can be used to correct and improve the appearance. Deep scars are best treated with a soft dermal filler to directly break up the scar tissue and to lift the depressed skin. More shallow scars can be treated with a combination of resurfacing lasers and chemical peels to remodel the scar. The visibility of a scar is often due to its contrasting colour compared to the surrounding skin. Lasers can help improve the colour of the scar and help it blend in to the surrounding areas..
Rosacea can be a very difficult chronic skin condition to treat but a combination of oral medications, strong topical medications and lasers can suppress and treat the rosacea.
