Slowing down the ageing process@SmilemakerNYC

pic: combination of extrinsic and intrinsic ageing due to sun damage and age

We are in the business of slowing down the ageing process.Sun damage is the most important cause of  ageing(80%)  seen as fine/coarse wrinkling and pigment. 

The fine lines and pigment can be reduced to a significant extent by regular use of our range of anti ageing products which improve skin tone.reduce fine lines and plump the skin making it more youthful.Pigment is reduced significantly over a few months of regular use.

Removing PAIN@Aesthetic Procedures through the minimalist approach

If you had come to us ten to fifteen years ago for a consult on facial ageing and rejuvenation ,the chances would most probably be a face lift depending on the needs.
In those days, I quite liked the idea of lifting the face using conventional plastic techniques of aesthetic surgery,trimming away excess skin and tightening the face. The initial results are good and may last over two years if done well.
On the flip side,now that minimally invasive aesthetic medicine is here to stay for a long long time, I have shifted gears and prefer the latter approach to rejuvenation where there is very little or no downtime at all.
Most patients have resorted to the latter option because they realise the benefits of minimally invasive facial rejuvenation.

Ten years before:  face lift surgery pics

Even the minimally invasive facelift is being replaced by the more popular and effective non invasive methods of  facial rejuvenation

Today in 2015, I have opted for a less radical approach and am able to get significant results using  a combination of skin conditioning ,peels and some dermaneedling later if needed.

Praying for others in need of God's unfailing LOVE

Been on twitter a lot lately,trying to make sense of suffering and war in the ME and trying to comfort friends in Sana'a as they face threats to their daily existence

Make me a channel of Your peace

1. Make me a channel of your peace:
Where there is hatred, let me bring you love;
Where there is injury, your healing pow'r,
And where there's doubt, true faith in you.

2. Make me a channel of your peace:
Where there's despair in life let me bring hope;
Where there is darkness, - only light,
And where there's sadness, ever joy.

3. O Spirit, grant that I may never seek
So much to be consolded as to console,
To be understood as to understand,
To be loved as to love with all my soul - .

4. Make me a channel of your peace.
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
In giving to all that we receive,
And in dying that we're born to eternal life.

Author: A Prayer of St. Francis,

This hymn is based on a traditional prayer attributed to St. Francis of Assisi,
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love. Where there is injury, pardon. Where there is doubt, faith. Where there is darkness, light. Where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled, as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love; for it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

How you can HELP@FEED Yemen 2015 September

As a med team involved in the lives of tens of thousands of Yemeni children and others, we  came to know that some of the poorest and most forgotten regions are in Hodeida.

I remember how some of our staff would advice parents to keep their children fasting before the next morning surgeries and the reply was," Not a problem for us. We have no money to eat and we try to get by with one meal a day!"

There are some generous Yemeni friends in the UK and Sana who are trying to help impoverished familes with much needed food aid.
Please visit  and see how you or your group can help starving familes in Yemen. For as little as twenty pounds (approx $30 ) one can buy an impoverished Yemeni family 25 kg wheat, 5 kg sugar,5 kg rice and 2 litres of oil.

God bless you.

Prayers for Sana'a city

Dear friends,

Thanks for following my blogs since Sept 2012. There are over 550,000 views across the US and the rest of the world since. I appreciate some of the helpful comments and queries.
I have not been blogging much these days because of the terrible war in Yemen where there is a blockade and the nation is on the verge of a famine.
Many of my close friends in Sana city live in fear,not knowing if they will live to see another day, as the jets fly overhead and target all non military areas now.

Let's all spend a few minutes each day praying for the friends in Sana and elsewhere that God would protect all our friends in Yemen and heal the nation.

Pray that God will put an end to the war and suffering and that Yemen will rise again from the ashes.

Pray that the economic blockade by the coalition will end and food supplies will reach the children and the rest of the population . Many babies and children are severely malnourished and dying daily.More than 1200 babies and children have been massacred by the jets and fighting between factions.

Pray that medical supplies will be allowed in to save Yemeni lives

Pray that the WAR will end so that our medical teams can ENTER to function once again across the nation to HEAL patients who have been cut off from any form of medical care.There are over 15 million without a doctor right now.

Sometimes we as humans give up and blame God.That is the devil's strategy.Better just pray and ASK God .He listens.God will ACT.

The Jessner peel for acne scars and antiageing

Jessner peel contains

 Salicylic Acid 14%,

Lactic Acid  14%,

Resorcinol 14%,

ethanol added(minute amount)     

* You must be a trained aesthetic doctor to do this sort of deep peel because  one needs to understand the total  concept of such deep peels where the downtime (recovery period) is longer. I strongly advise beauticians NOT to do deep peels. You are sure to face many problems.

Salicylic Acid is one of the best peels for acne .The goal is deeper exfoliation 

Do not use in  aspirin allergy,

 endpoint: you see whitish MICROCRYSTALS (frost)  after a few minutes
leave on for  2-3mts it is self neutralizing 
 The downtime is 1-3 days to one week

Aesthetic Medicine for the layperson: Topic 2 How do I use lactic acid gel peel?

How to do it sessions in Aesthetic Medicine

Lumina Gel Peel 30% gel is a safe superficial peel

It removes dead cells on the surface of your skin and does a light peel of your superficial skin layers.

How to use it: Firstly, cleanse your face with  our toner/cleanser and wash your face with cold water and pat your face dry. 

1. Take about one quarter of the gel from the dropper on your palm and apply a light coat with your index finger  all over your face,avoiding your eye areas. 

2. Let it remain on your face for about 1.5 to 2 minutes. You will feel a stinging and burning sensation during this time after about 3 seconds.

3. Wash your face with cold water for three minutes;your skin will be a bit red for a few minutes.Apply moisturizer and use sunblock SPF 30 daily.

You can use this peel once every ten days.

Your skin will become firmer and brighter over the next few weeks.

Aesthetic Medicine for the layperson: Topic 1-What is skin conditioning?

This month, I am happy to share with you all about a special programme I have designed for the benefit of lay people,using non complex terminologies so that aesthetic medicine concepts can be better understood.

I was at a promotional event a few weeks ago in New York city, talking about the benefits of skin care when one person in the audience asked me a simple, but useful question:

What do you mean by SKIN CONDITIONING?

the skin renews itself every 20 days for 15-25yr olds  ;in the thirties age group - the process is slower ,taking place every 12weeks.
the sebaceous or oil producing glands are less active leading to dry skin”

skin conditioning is a process by which you remove the dead cells on the surface of your skin by a method known as exfoliation.

as a result of skin conditioning, your skin heals faster,looks clearer and more youthful.

how long should you condition your skin? 
at least for six weeks 

if you neglect skin conditioning,your skin will appear dry, dull and lustreless,since dead cells accumulate on your skin.

basically, skin conditioning is like vacuuming your living room every once in a few weeks,giving it a neat and shiny look.

at smilemakernyc , we use the following to condition and make your skin more beautiful:

step 1. daily use of our organic cleansers and toners to balance the ph of your skin and remove impurities .this opens up the pores  and enables effective penetration of peels and lighteners.

step2: use our superficial lumina gel 30% peel  every ten days,which effectively removes dead cells and peels your skin superficially removing whiteheads,blackheads,fine lines,superficial scars,pigment,and blemishes over regular use. it also nourishes your skin and makes you more youthful.

the other option here is to use our 24k gold gentle antiageing gel to rejuvenate your skin daily

step 3: following the superficial peel,you can now lighten your skin pigment,blemishes,spots and melesma using our Chi 7 gel every night, which has skin pigment lighteners like kojic acid(Japanese mushroom extract),bearberry extract (arbutin) and licorice extract. These three substances will make your skin a lot clearer and younger looking.
