Aesthetic treatments like the ones performed by Dr Nina at Facial Sculpting are considered to be a part of a medical specialty that focuses on enhancing our cosmetic appearance through the treatment of conditions including scars, skin laxity, wrinkles, moles, hyperpigmentation, excess fat, cellulite, unwanted hair, spider veins and more.
Traditionally, aesthetic medicine (also called cosmetic surgery or medical aesthetic) includes both surgical and non-surgical techniques. Procedures such as liposuction, facelifts, breast implants, etc. are considered surgical and are the most invasive type of procedures, meaning they most often require anesthesia and longer downtime. On the other hand, treatments like chemical peels, dermal fillers, thread lifts, etc. are considered to be non-surgical and non-invasive cosmetic procedures, meaning they normally require no general anesthesia and minimal recovery time.
The health risks of non-surgical cosmetic procedures are also much lower than those posed by surgery (such as infections, potential reactions to the anesthetic, scarring, etc.), and they often have minimal side effects. Finally – perhaps one of the most attractive aspects is that non-invasive treatments have a much lower price tag since they don’t require the expense of anesthetic or additional surgical fees.
Aesthetic medicine is not to be confused with plastic surgery. Although it’s very common to think of cosmetic surgery as the same as plastic surgery, the two disciplines differ completely in terms of goals when it comes to patient outcomes.
While the goal of cosmetic surgery is solely to improve a person’s appearance and, thus, his/her self-esteem and self-confidence, the goal of plastic surgery is to reconstruct normal function and appearance by repairing facial and body defects due to birth disorders, trauma, burns, and disease.

Aesthetic Treatments: FAQs
Aesthetic treatments are often used to help mask or even delay the passage of time, targeting concerns like unwanted facial lines, wrinkles and uneven skin tones. They are designed to soften expression lines and define facial contours, which rejuvenates and refreshes your natural skin, giving the face – and the person’s confidence – a boost.
By targeting the areas most affected by the ageing process – the forehead, lips, cheeks, and nose/mouth areas – aesthetic treatments can help create an overall more pleasing face and body, making noticeable but subtle improvements to one’s appearance.
Here are some of the most Frequently Asked Questions when it comes to aesthetic treatments.
– Asymmetry Correction, which include treatments like Face Shape Sculpting; Cheek Sculpting; Chin Sculpting; The Brow Lift. Dr Nina uses either Restylane, Juvederm (hyaluronic acid), or Radiesse (calcium hydroxyapatite), or Ellanse (Polycaprolactone) – all extremely safe, temporary fillers. Ellanse and Radiesse also act as a collagen stimulator, adding more volume and definition.
– The non-surgical nose job, or nose sculpting, which is ideal for people seeking non-surgical alternatives to rhinoplasty. In less than an hour and without anesthesia, Dr Nina can sculpt your nose with hyaluronic acid dermal fillers in less than one hour.
Apart from the first 24-72 hours when some swelling and/or bruising might occur, no one will be able to tell you’ve had a procedure done. People might notice your great skin and compliment you on it, but they won’t be able to pinpoint any major difference. Aesthetic treatments are all about subtle changes to enhance your natural beauty without major changes to your appearence.
Prior to any treatments, an effective topical anesthetic cream is used to numb the area and make the procedure as painless as possible. Dr. Nina also uses Pediatric 32 gauge needles, the smallest needles available, which cause minimal pain.
The results of the treatments can last up to 6-12 months, sometimes longer depending on how fast your metabolism works. Every person’s individual metabolism is different, so the longevity of fillers can vary greatly from one person to another. For those with a very fast metabolic rate, fillers will break down more rapidly than in people with a slower metabolic rate.

The secret to a successful aesthetic treatment is to provide results that are subtle and give you a natural appearence, without people being able to tell you had a procedure done!
Being a man, it was very important for me to achieve a look that wasn‘t too noticeable. I sat down and explained everything and what I wanted. Dr Nina listened and took on board everything I wanted done. Dr Nina then went ahead with my first treatment and what would become a life-changing moment for me. The results were phenomenal and I was in total shock as the treatment knocked years off my face. All my forehead lines and frown lines were gone and the lift to my eyebrows looked incredible and perfect! The best part about it is that everyone always says how great and refreshed I look and no one has ever guessed what I’ve had done.Ravi
