Products and Services
BOTULINUM TOXIN INJECTIONS
Botox is a toxin that inhibits muscular contraction. Therefore, it relieves painful muscular conditions and helps to lessen the appearance of dynamic wrinkles (wrinkles caused by expression – frown lines, crow’s fee etc.). Its action lasts approximately three months, after which the injections are repeated.
Dermal Fillers are Hyaluronic Acid containing substances that are injected in facial areas. This can be done to restore volume loss to the face due to ageing, as well as certain wrinkles and obvious facial fold lines.
Areas, such as the lips, can be made more defined or to look fuller with fillers. Fillers last for approximately 9 months, after which the injections are repeated.
Microneedling is done with a device called a “Dermapen”. The Dermapen consists of a set of needles that painlessly puncture the surface of the skin. This stimulates the fibroblasts to lay down more collagen, leading to “plumper” and younger looking skin.
It can also treat pigmentation and certain facial scars.
LED phototherapy is the non-invasive use of continuous light (rather than light pulses). Different wavelengths are used to treat various skin conditions from ageing skin to acne. This is administered in local areas with a light or can be used in a ‘mask’ that covers the whole face. The entire area is then lit with a color of light, depending on the indication. Due to increased cell regeneration, the area can then improve in appearance after several sessions.
CHEMICAL PEELS AND SKIN RESURFACING
A chemical peel is used to improve the appearance of the skin of the face, neck and hands. A chemical solution is applied to the skin that causes the dead, old skin cells to exfoliate and eventually peel oﬀ. The new skin that appears is then smoother. Diﬀerent depths of peels can be performed, depending on the indication. Chemical peels are used to treat ﬁne lines, acne scars, pigmentation, age spots and other signs of aging.
Hilotherapy is the administration of cooling water set at a desired temperature, through a closed-circuit unit. The unit keeps the water temperature constant. A disposable mask is applied on the desired area, while the water circulates through it.
