At Reverse Time, I offer a specialised medical aesthetic consultation to assess your skin, how it is aging, and what would help repair past damage, improve its condition and maintain skin health.
I offer medical aesthetic treatments for skin conditioning and pigmentation, such as prescription skincare (Obagi systems), medical grade skin peels (SkinTech TCA peels, Obagi Blue peel Radiance), Platelet rich plasma regenerative treatments for face, scalp and body, injectables like dermal fillers (Restylane, Juvederm), collagen stimulators (Radiesse), bio-remodelling and skin tightening (Profhilo), PDO and Silhouette Soft thread lifts.
Plasma skin resurfacing for aging skin and acne scarring is one of our popular treatments, along with localised fat reduction using Aqualyx and non-invasing body contouring with TriLipo tripolar radiofrequency.
Perhaps the most popular recently is bio-identical hormone therapy, which I am excited about and enjoy providing.
Skin health and abnormal aging are intimately connected to internal health, nutrition, hormonal balance, weight problems and stress in all its forms. At Reverse Time we understand this and take a holistic, combined approach to treatment.
Emma: So at Reverse Time, what treatments is it that you actually offer, because I know nowadays there’s so much, isn’t there, that’s on the market for all sorts of skin conditions; cosmetic treatments, things like stretch marks, fat laser removal, all sorts of treatments, so what is it specifically at Reverse Time that you offer?
Aarti: At Reverse Time, what I do is, I combine my skills as a GP, my years of cosmetic/ aesthetic work, and put them all together with my hormonal knowledge, having been a women’s health doctor prior to this.
So I would treat problems with pigmentation in the skin, so starting with any issues with the color of the skin, being too much or patchy or too little, so that would be treatments like Obagi – you probably heard of Obagi so that’s like systems, selected systems, prescription skin care, all that goes into treating the skin.
I also do certain peels, not the heavy peels but gradual, medium peels that can take away existing damage (SkinTech peels) – these are courses. I also provide what’s called a platelet-rich plasma treatment (Vampire facial), that is basically taking your own blood, centrifuging or spinning it separating the bits out, and then putting the best bits back in. They contain the growth factors and stem cells that can actually rejuvenate the skin. So these are the rejuvenating treatments, maintaining and rejuvenating.
All my patients will go through a rigorous check of whether they’re using the right things for sunscreen. Now this doesn’t have to do with brands, I don’t actually sell any brands, but it’s more checking what they do. The only brands I personally know would be Obagi and NeoStrata because they’re prescription things.
Treatments for existing damage or heavy lines, first finding out the cause of the lines, deciding whether an injectable treatment like botulinum toxin (Botox) or dermal fillers (like Restylane, Juvederm) will suit them, and if they’ve got age-related volume loss, or illness-related volume loss.
I see a lot of people come in with a gym face where the rest of them is like fantastically fit, but their face looking like…….but there’s like, I can’t really tell them to eat more fat, so I can restore it back to what it’s supposed to look like, but not anything that would distort their face; so that is very important. I can restore their natural balance back to their face.
In that group, you get treatment with all sorts of dermal fillers.
Which filler? depends on the problem.
Wwhere I put the filler? depends on the problem;
How much I use – depends on the problem.
Each patient is unique and each patient gets a particular way of treatment. But everything is standardized in the sense that I only use the products the way they’re supposed to be used. At the moment I don’t do laser fat removal, but I intend to offer this. I do Aqualyx fat dissolving injections, which help to change fat into fiber over a period of time.
I do a pretty good treatment of stretch marks, I won’t go into the details, but it does involve the platelets as well as a few other things.
