SKIN TIGHTENING

Tighten and tone lax skin on the face and neck or body

With non-surgical skin tightening, one can effectively tighten moderately lax or "crepey" skin on the face and neck, helping patients improve their appearance and postpone the need for surgery.

In general, non-surgical skin tightening procedures work by using targeted energy to heat deeper layers of skin, which stimulates collagen and elastin production and gradually improves skin tone and texture.

ROSACEA

Treatment of couperose-prone skin

Redness in the face is a common skin disorder: about 40 million people worldwide suffer from rosacea. When the skin feels flushed or dilated vessels are apparent, as well as papules and pustules,these are usually signs of rosacea. Rosacea can take very different forms from one person to another and therefore the treatment must be adapted to the symptoms.

SCARS

Improvement in the appearance of scars

Scars can be the result of various causes such as trauma, burns, surgery, or inflammation, so improving them is also easing part of the trauma. Scars can take many forms: hypertrophic (thickened), atrophic (depressed), leucodermic (white), erythematous (red) or hyperpigmented (brown).


TREATMENTS: Assessment and appropriate treatment of each type of scar // Adjusted topical treatment creams// Injections// Vascular or pigmented laser// Fractional laser

BROWN SPOTS

Removal of age spots or sunspots

As the name "sunspots" suggests, these dark spots are most often caused by overexposure to the sun. For this reason, they are generally found on the areas of the body that are frequently exposed to the sun: face, neck, décolleté, shoulders, forearms and hands.

 

TREATMENTS: Protection against ultraviolet, blue and infrared light // Adjusted personalized skincare // Peeling // Laser

MELASMA

Treatment of pigment disturbances in the face

Melasma is sometimes referred to “chloasma” or the mask of pregnancy, because it is sometimes triggered by an increase in hormones in pregnant women. But while the condition may be common among pregnant women, it isn't limited to them. It generally affects women of childbearing age and affects 50 million women worldwide. This skin condition causes dark patches typically on the forehead, chin, cheeks, upper lip, or nose. It can be difficult to treat  and can last for years causing significant emotional distress. Unfortunately, there's a lot of misinformation out there. The first step in treating melasma is confirming you’re your dermatologist that your darkened skin patches are indeed melasma.

 

TREATMENTS: The most important way to clear up melasma is by using a strict sunscreen regimen. But keep in mind that not all sunscreens are created equal. To prevent against melasma, you need a sunscreen that blocks not only the sun's rays, but also its light and heat.

HAIR REMOVAL

Permanent hair removal for all skin types and different hair colours


Unwanted facial hair growth in women ( hirsutism) or ingrowing beard hairs in man ( pseudofolliculits barbae) are perfect indications for a long lasting method of hair removal. Light- based hair removal is a safe and clinically effective way to remove these unwanted hair permanently, eliminating the hassle, expense and never-ending routines of shaving or waxing.



 

Since hair grows in cycles, most individuals need about five to seven treatments to target the hair follicles at the right stage of growth.

BODY SHAPING

Body shaping and contouring, eliminating localised fat deposits

Nothing can replace a healthy life style and exercise, of course, but that is not always enough to to remove stubborn localized fat deposits.

Thanks to non-invasive treatment modalities, one can remove localized fat deposits in non- invasive ways.

TATTOO REMOVAL

Tattoo removal for all skin types and different tattoo colours


More and more of us are following the trend of getting a tattoo, but it may happen that we regret having been tattooed or that we want a new tattoo. For years, the only treatment was surgical, but times have changed and technologies have improved. Today, lasers make removing unwanted tattoos less invasive and more effective. Anyone considering removing a tattoo should know that the size, the colors and location of the tattoo will influence the removal process. A consultation with your dermatologist is therefore imperative so  that you are well informed about the whole procedure and you can make a well informed decision whether to go ahead or not.

CELLULITE

Treatment of  orange peel skin

Cellulite, or orange peel, is the result of a change in the structure of adipose tissue (= fat reserves) housed under the epidermis. It gives the skin a "bumpy" appearance, deemed unsightly. It is mainly seen on the back of the thighs and on the buttocks. Cellulite almost exclusively affects women: almost 9 out of 10 women are affected by cellulite. Cellulite is not a disease, but a transformation of the skin induced by many factors, in particular genetic, hormonal and dietary. In general, non-surgical skin procedures work by using different forms of energies to target the deeper fibrous strands of the skin to help smooth cellulite.

With non-surgical skin tightening, one can effectively tighten moderately lax or "crepey" skin on the body like upper arms and thighs, helping patients improve their appearance and postpone the need for surgery.
