1- Maintaining a Natural Appearance: Enhancing Features Without Overdoing It

Question: How do you maintain a balance between enhancing features and avoiding an overdone appearance?

Dr. Thevakumar: Maintaining a natural appearance is at the core of my practice philosophy. Understanding each patient’s unique features is paramount. By enhancing rather than completely altering them, we achieve results that harmonise with their individual beauty. 

Subtlety is key.

We refuse to go overboard because, ultimately, our patients seek enhancement, not transformations.

2 – Balancing Desires & Expectations: Putting Patient Well-Being First

Question: Do you have to sometimes say no to patients to ensure their well-being?

Dr. Thevakumar: Certainly. It’s crucial to approach cosmetic treatments and procedures with a patient-centric mindset. 

While fulfilling patient desires and expectations is important, it’s equally essential to prioritise safety and ethical practice. 

There’s a delicate balance in guiding patients towards treatments that align with their goals while ensuring they’re well-informed and realistic about potential outcomes.

Sometimes, saying no or suggesting alternatives is necessary to safeguard their health and ensure a satisfactory result.

3 – Prioritising Safe Treatment Options: Tips for Prospective Patients

Question: What advice would you offer for people considering cosmetic treatments to ensure they prioritise safe treatment options?

Dr. Thevakumar: Research is paramount. Seek out reputable cosmetic physicians with a track record of excellence and a commitment to patient safety. 

Prioritise consultations where you can openly discuss your concerns and expectations. Remember, your safety should always come first before price, convenience, or aesthetic trends. 

Educate yourself, ask questions, and prioritise your well-being above all else.

4 – Same-Day Treatments: Ensuring Informed Decisions

Question: Is it common for patients to undergo treatments on the same day as their consultation?

Dr. Thevakumar: Yes, it can be arranged on the day. If the patient has all the necessary information about the procedure, feels comfortable with the process, and is fully informed about the potential risks and benefits, then it can be arranged. 

However, I always emphasise to my patients that they should only rush into treatment if they are completely informed and comfortable with their decision. Understanding the procedure and ensuring all questions are answered is essential before proceeding with any treatment.

5 – Sunscreen: A Must-Have in Skincare Regimens

Question: How important is sunscreen in preventing aging skin?

Dr. Thevakumar: Sunscreen is non-negotiable in any skincare regimen, especially for those concerned with aging. 

It acts as a shield against harmful UV rays, which are one of the primary contributors to premature aging. 

Regardless of age, adopting a habit of wearing sunscreen daily is pivotal in maintaining a youthful complexion and preventing further damage. 

I always tell my patients that it’s never too late to start wearing it.

6 – Non-invasive Treatments for Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Question: What non-invasive treatments do you recommend for addressing fine lines and wrinkles?

Dr. Thevakumar: Fine lines and wrinkles can be effectively treated with several noninvasive and nonsurgical options, such as neuromodulators and collagen-stimulating treatments like micro needling with our SkinPen treatment or laser therapy, such as Laser Laser Genesis & Tixel Treatment.  

These non-invasive procedures yield natural-looking results with minimal downtime, catering to the lifestyle needs of our patients.

7 – Addressing Skin Elasticity and Firmness without Surgery

Question: How do you address skin elasticity and firmness concerns without surgery?

Dr Thevakumar: Non-surgical options such as radiofrequency treatments & ultrasound therapy (Ultherapy) can effectively lift and tighten sagging skin in the jawline and neck area. PDO Thread Lifting can also stimulate collagen production, resulting in firmer, more youthful-looking skin.

These minimally invasive procedures yield natural-looking results with little to no downtime, providing patients with noticeable improvements in their contours and overall appearance.

8 – Specialised Treatments for Menopausal Skin Changes

Question: What specialised treatments or skincare routines do you recommend for women experiencing menopausal skin changes? 

Dr Thevakumar: For women experiencing menopausal skin changes, I recommend hydrating treatments, gentle exfoliation such as HydraFacial and targeted skincare products containing ingredients like hyaluronic acid and retinol. 

Additionally, chemical peels and microdermabrasion procedures can rejuvenate dull skin, restoring its vitality and glow.

9 – Personalised Approach to Treatments

Question: How do you personalise your approach to treatments to meet the individual needs of your patients?

Dr Thevakumar: Personalisation is key in non-surgical cosmetic treatments. 

During our non-obligation comprehensive consultations, we assess each patient’s skin type, concerns, and goals to tailor a customised treatment plan. 

Whether addressing specific concerns like acne or aging or implementing preventive measures, we prioritise a holistic approach that aligns with each patient’s unique needs and desires for results.

10 – Managing Expectations for First-Time Patients

Question: For patients considering non-surgical cosmetic treatments for the first time, what advice would you give them to ensure they have realistic expectations and feel confident in their decision?

Dr Thevakumar: Education and communication are key. Before any procedure, patients need to have a thorough understanding of what to expect, including potential risks and outcomes. 

During consultations, we take the time to discuss realistic expectations, ensuring patients feel confident and empowered in their decision-making process. 

Additionally, providing before-and-after photos of previous patients with similar concerns can offer valuable insights into achievable results, fostering a sense of trust and transparency.

11 – Lifestyle Factors for Optimizing Treatment Results

Question: Are there any lifestyle factors or habits people should pay attention to optimise the results of their cosmetic treatments?

Dr Thevakumar: Absolutely. Lifestyle plays a significant role in skin health and treatment outcomes. 

I often advise patients to prioritise factors such as hydration, balanced nutrition, adequate sleep, and stress management. Additionally, habits like wearing sunscreen daily, avoiding smoking, and limiting alcohol consumption can significantly impact the long-term efficacy of skincare treatments. 

By adopting a holistic approach to wellness, patients can enhance the results of their cosmetic procedures and maintain youthful, radiant skin over time.
