Celebrities like Kim Kardashian to “The Beverly Hills Housewives” have at one point or another gone through procedures to help themselves look younger, tighter and slimmer. They literally make a living talking about it in the public eye. But, do they know about the newest treatment revolutionizing the aesthetics industry that has been trademarked by Dr. Azza Halim.
More and more companies are entering this market with groundbreaking technologies and methods and Dr. Azza has partnered with a leading manufacturer from South Korea to design a custom thread lift method that is safer for the patient and easier for the practitioner, with amazing results never before seen. PDO Threads are a relatively newer treatment for lifting and supporting sagging skin in the face and body. They are Polydiaxonone sutures that use small barbs or cogs that are gently placed under the skin to lift, smooth and contour.
Dr. Azza can truly be called a master injector with years of clinical and surgical experience in the field of Aesthetics. With her practical and real-world understanding of facial anatomy and physiology, from over a decade in the operating room, she is able to achieve masterful results using the safest and most effective ways of using Botox and a variety of fillers and collagen induction techniques. Which is why and how she created three trademark procedures to offer anti-aging solutions (CarboxySmooth, CarboxyLift, CarboxyTight). Dr. Azza’s trademark combination treatment using carboxytherapy and PDO threads, can now safely treat dark under-eye circles and bags, saggy jowls and neck, rejuvenate the hands and treat stubborn cellulite.
Dr. Halim’s medical training began at Northwestern University in Chicago. Where she then went on to do her internship in internal medicine. She did her residency in anesthesiology, along with fellowships in critical care/trauma and pediatrics at Northwestern University.
Creating customized anti-aging treatment plans and beauty solutions are a major focus for her, a board-certified anesthesiologist and multi-specialty trained physician. Dr. Azza has a broad background in the field of aesthetics and anti-aging.
“I realize that one size does not fit all,” she explains. “I am a perfectionist. Even though I have worked in virtually every aspect of various treatment modalities from Botox and fillers to lasers and non-invasive procedures, I take a balanced holistic approach in creating a very customized plan to fit their needs.”
