Dr. Aisha Humaira- A Competent Addition to the Field of Dermatology

Published

on

It is the era where you do not want too much makeup on your face to hide any flaws. People are more into spending on skincare products rather than buying expensive foundations and concealers. If you keep yourself aware of the basic skincare tips, your life is easy. Even a scrap of concealer can make you look great with a lip & cheek tint. 

It is high time that we started learning about cosmetology, dermatology, and its importance. 

To know about new trends, essential skincare regimes, and much more in the relevant field, we had a conversation with the brilliant celebrity cosmetic dermatologist, Dr. Aisha Humaira who is also a member of American Academy USA. 

1) Tell us about yourself, your specialization, and the nature of your work?

Hi, I’m an Old Soul. But oh well, I do work on the face and body transformation as per the latest requirements of aesthetics.

I’m a consultant dermatologist holding the following degrees; My basic qualification is MBBS and I am a diplomate in Dermatology from South Wales, in Aesthetic Medicine from the American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine and further, I have specialized in anti-aging medicine and thread lifting from iMA Dubai.

2) Tell us about your everyday routine?

It’s very busy but the good part is that I really enjoy it because I’m a mother of 2 little beauties and a devoting wife like we all Asian women are. Yes, my day starts early in the morning with exercise followed by some home responsibilities then I rush to the clinic around 12 and get back home by 8 or 9 pm. I do take out a couple of hours for reading so I adjust it somewhere after getting back from work. 

3) What made you choose this profession?

Artistic mind and surgical hands do the magic together but I think It’s all about luck because I never planned, it just happened and now I think that was the best thing that ever happened to me. But, no doubt, I was passionate about my field of medicine that strengthened my way to achievement in cosmetic dermatology.

4) What kind of extreme cases have you dealt with in terms of cosmetic surgery?

As you know that only licensed professionals should be performing cosmetic procedures but there are often distorted cases reported due to unlicensed individuals with serious consequences.
I have treated Mr. Agha Sheraz, a renowned actor in our media industry. Someone injected him with fat burners in an inappropriate way due to which he got facial asymmetry. Similarly, another big name, Mr. Zia Gurchani, who got facial asymmetry from inappropriate HIFU treatment. These two people were really the biggest challenge for me, and AlhamdullilAllah they are extremely happy and satisfied with my work!
Recently, a girl came to me with completely uneven jaws, face, and deviated nose. She had a history of trauma in childhood and she was really scared of getting the surgery done. She wanted to be treated non surgically with advanced techniques so, I treated her with multiple protocols like I planned nonsurgical rhinoplasty which was again not that easy to perform as she had completely deviated nose and two doctors had already denied her for taking the risk. And, now she is very happy with the after results. I also made her jaws even by putting fillers and her right jaw was stronger due to muscular ( masseter) hypertrophy. So, I injected Botox on the affected area, and finally, she got more even and parallel jaws with a well-defined nose.

5) Has anything ever gone wrong during a procedure, eg. the body could not accept the changes?

I think the best consultant is the one who can deal with the complications and until you are not exposed to the problems you are not capable of calling yourself the best In your field so, yes, I have faced too. I cannot call them wrong but sometimes when you are working on the body there are things that can come In your way especially during the invasive procedure but AlhamdullilAllah I didn’t have any worst experience because when you know the anatomy you can perform well and can avoid the complications quite efficiently.

6) What are the advanced procedures in cosmetic dermatology that are being introduced in Pakistan?

Thread lifting, Aesthetic Gynae, breast augmentation, Non-surgical rhinoplasty to name a few. 

They all have profitable instant results with almost zero downtime and minimal to none pain threshold.

7) Who is your inspiration internationally?

Dr. Professor Alessio Radaelli! He is my inspiration and I do follow him in aesthetic. He is a renowned Plastic Surgeon in Italy and one of the best trainers in the world. Luckily, he is my trainer as well. There is this another beautiful lady Dr. Nadine Hamada. She is a successful Dermatologist in Egypt she is a good friend and senior Faculty member of the American Academy. They are my true inspiration because of their work and genuinely supportive nature.

8) What is on your bucket list for now? 

I think there are lots of things that need to be done in the future but, for me, I wanna bring all international standards in aesthetic techniques to Pakistan with more advancement and promising benefits to the country.

I’m also working on a few products that would be completely safe and highly effective for the skin. I always wanted to spread awareness regarding basic haircare and skincare routine that we are lacking, so, in the form of boxes, I have introduced a complete range of basic care and these boxes are accessible to every individual either within the city or outside the city so I m planning on working more on these home treatments!

9) What part\missuse of cosmetic dermatology you do not support?

A few institutions started teaching Botox Fillers to Non-doctors which I think is going to be a disaster because a non-medical can not understand the normal anatomy and injecting the wrong filler can make a person blind while a Wrong Botox Injection can cause major Asymmetry and facial paralysis!

10) What is the biggest challenge you are facing as a cosmetic dermatologist in Pakistan?

In Pakistan, there is a lack of awareness about cosmetic procedures and aftercare. Everyone wants to get it done but no one is fully aware of the worth and right selection of procedure protocols. They don’t prefer to spend on consultation charges for better recommendations, rather, they want to get the full information about their treatments including the number of sessions on messages or phone calls.

How can someone take the risk for your face or body without examination? We can not recommend anything to anyone as procedure protocols vary with individuals’ requirements and aesthetic calculations.

So it’s important to spread the word and awareness about the proper cosmetics plans and techniques to people otherwise very soon we are going to face the failure of cosmetology in terms of giving good results according to the international standards to the clients.

11) What part of your work do you like the most?

I love to transform a deviated nose to a well-defined one without any surgery and pain as it’s the quick way to fix the flaws that probably sometimes become a psychological trauma to the people.

Even girls come to me for their skin issues that are making hurdles. for their career or marriages. As much as I hate to say this, but unfortunately, it’s the culture that is being practiced for ages. But the bitter reality is that society goes on appearances. So, I really feel happy when you are able to find a solution to someone’s biggest problem.

12) What procedures do you recommend to be taken monthly for healthy and refreshing skin?

We need to keep our skin clean and unclogged from dust, makeup residues, pollution, and spice particles. For that, we need a good Hydrafacial that sucks out all the impurities, infuses essential serums to the deeper layers of skin, hydrates your skin to the next level, reduces fine lines, and delivers oxygen to the skin cells keeping you healthy and glowing naturally.

One session can last up to 1 month easily.

There are other procedures for different skin demands like Meso Whitening, Deep Derm Gold Facial, Cleopatra Facial and now the latest is Quadra Facial in town that we have recently introduced for the very first time in Pakistan.

Canadian Pakistani CEO and motivational speaker Muneeb Mushtaq has given us many insightful and empowering thoughts over the years on the basis of his experiences as a young and dynamic businessman. The tech tycoon has been the founder of three tech business ventures and has managed to achieve so much at such a young age. And, he has given back his learning and knowledge by motivating, educating, and mentoring people to be successful in life.

Here are some motivational thoughts by the Forbes awarded entrepreneur Muneeb Mushtaq to get you motivated and beat the Monday blues:

 

  1. Get rid of the useless and negative clutter in your life

 

Muneeb Mushtaq suggests that it is important to subtract some of the unnecessary things from life to realise how insignificant they are. He advises us to get away from the insignificant and negative clutter in order to see an immediate positive impact. Worrying about what others think of us, trying to please everyone are some of the unimportant things we need to remove as soon as possible. According to him “When you remove what’s negative, it’ll add more space for what’s POSITIVE”!

 

  1. Don’t wait, just take the first step

 

The successful entrepreneur recommends us not to wait for other people or for the perfect moment to do what you have always wanted to do. There will never be a perfect time, situation or circumstances that would make you start working on your dreams. He advises us to just take the first step and get started.

 

  1. Failure is the opportunity to start over again, more wisely

 

The dynamic businessman is also of the view that failure provides an invaluable experience that makes it more likely to get success the next time around. He explains: “Till the time you don’t give up, the failures are just learning experiences, helping you to eventually succeed.”

 

  1. Respect the competition

 

Muneeb Mushtaq also shares this motivational thought that competition should be embraced and should be used as a driving force to push you further rather than fearing it. Competition is also a validation that there is a massive market and opportunity in the space to grow further.

 

  1. Change is important

Another motivating thought from Muneeb Mushtaq is that if you want change in life, then you should also be willing to change. He says, “If you are not willing to change, don’t expect your life to either”.
