also offers treatment for wrinkle correction, acne scars, excessive perspiration, cellulite, permanent hair reduction etc. Here again, an experienced doctor is in charge of the complete course of treatment.
The centre uses Botox ® and Restylane ® and Elos® for these procedures.
In May 2005 the centre’s chief physician attended the Master Coursein Botox ® treatments and fillers in Paris.
Botox ® is used primarily in the treatment of wrinkles caused by excess activity of the underlying muscle(s), known as dynamic wrinkles.
Frown lines (wrinkles between the eyebrows), forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet (wrinkles around the eyes) are ideal for treatment with Botox ®.
To achieve the best possible outcome, forehead wrinkles are never treated on their own but always in conjunction with frown lines.
Frown lines and crow’s feet, on the other hand, can be treated separately.
The effect becomes apparent after 5 to 10 days and lasts for 4 to 6 months.
Side effects (e.g. bruising, sagging eyebrows etc.) are very rare.
Static wrinkles (these are caused by skin ageing; they are permanent and not associated with any muscle activity) cannot be completely corrected with Botox ® alone, and are treated with a combination of Botox ® and a filler (Restylane ® is used at this centre) or with a filler alone.
Restylane ® is a temporary filler that produces immediate results with effects lasting from 12 to 18 months.
Fillers are also suitable for treating sunken cheeks, filling out the lips, treating smoker’s wrinkles and filling out the area between the nose and corner of the mouth (nasolabial fold).
The fillers, too, seldom if ever have any side effects.
The patient is able to go back to work immediately following these wrinkle correction treatments.
The procedures take 20 minutes as a rule.
Excessive perspiration (from armpits, the palms of the hands, or the soles of the feet) is a further indication for Botox ® treatment and is best carried out in April or May so the patient can benefit all summer long (the effect lasts from 6 to 9 months). It takes around 45 minutes to complete.
Restylane Vital not only rejuvenates facial skin but can also be used on the neck, décolletage and the backs of hands by hydrating the skin and improving its elasticity and tone. Two to three touch-up treatments within 4 weeks after the initial treatment may be necessary. We recommend a follow-up treatment every 4 to 6 months.
Elos® skin treatment
Elos® is the first and only combined energy technology which uses different energy sources.
The combined energies of bi-polar radio frequency and broad spectrum light (eLight®) treats superficial benign vascular and pigmented lesions including telangiectasias, rosacea, poikiloderma and angioma.
The combined energies of bi-polar radio frequency and diode laser (eLaser®) achieves permanent hair reduction and selective thermolysis to vascular lesions including telangiectasia and leg veins.
The combined energies of bi-polar radio frequency and infrared light plus tissue mobilization (Velasmooth®)is effective for cellulite treatment (dimpled or orange peel look to the skin) and skin lifting.
