Facial Aesthetics

Our Facial Aesthetics is guided by dental surgeons and medically trained professionals. After years of treating the face and literally thousands of injections and development of fine surgical skills, our clinical practice has extended from dentistry and have now introduced facial aesthetics into our treatments provided to our patients.

 

We offer FREE consultations with our Aesthetician and offer a range of packages for our clients to ensure they get the best results for their facial aesthetics need, but we prefer to provide bespoke packages for clients to be able to target your individual needs.

Chemical Peels
Chemical Peels

We have a wide range of different chemical peels, all targeting different problems.  Chemical peels not only slough off the superficial layers of the skin, but will stimulate the basal layer of skin cells, leading to rejuvenation of the skin.  With chemical peels, it is imperative that you follow your homecare advise given by the aesthetician.

 

Sunblock with SPF 50 must be used, since the initial thinning of the skin can lead to UV damage on the lower layers of the skin. Chemical peels can be used to treat fine lines, scars, pigmentation issues, and to strengthen the skin.

Mesotherapy Skin Treatments
Mesotherapy Skin Treatments

Mesotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure where a series of superfine injections of vitamins, minerals and amino acids cocktails are delivered into the mesodermal layer of the skin.

 

This infusion of savvy ingredients nourishes and rejuvenates the skin while also stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, both essential for skin’s natural elasticity.

PRP Skin treatments
PRP Skin treatments

This treatment is done using the patient’s own blood, centrifuging it, and extracting the very rich plasma, which we can then re-inject for the desired effect (mesotherapy).  There are many uses for PRP treatments (orthopaedics, plastic surgery, chronic wounds, dentistry and aesthetics).  PRP will rejuvenate and delay the ageing of skin by stimulating fibroblast proliferation, stem cell proliferation and differentiation, collagenesis and vascularisation.

 

The benefits of this will be improved skin texture and tone, refinement of signs of ageing (lines and spots), hydration, reduction of scars and gradual increase in the skin thickness and vitality.  Your aesthetician will advise how many treatments would be necessary, since this all depends on the condition of your skin.

Anti-Wrinkle Treatments
Anti-Wrinkle Treatments

Anti-Wrinkle treatments involve the use of botulinum toxin type A. Botox®, Dysport, Bocoture or Azzalure are approved product names for the botulinum toxin and are incredibly popular treatments for the cosmetic treatments of wrinkles and frown lines.

 

These products work in a similar fashion, where they inhibit stimulation of nerves supplying the muscles involved. This causes the muscles that cause facial wrinkles to relax. The more relaxed the muscles are the less strength they have to produce folds in the skin. It is the contraction of the facial muscles that over time cause these folds to occur and become deeper and permanent.   By relaxing the muscles causing the folds in the skin, we can in time soften and eliminate the lines.

 

Research between products shows that depending on the area to be treated, that one product may be more effective than the other. Our expertly trained team will advise you on the best product to get you the best looking result.

Facial Rejuvenation with Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Facial Rejuvenation with Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

As we get older, our skin loses elasticity, and the amount of collagen in the skin is greatly reduced.  This leads to ‘softening’ of the skin and sagging, resulting in even more wrinkles and lines.

 

We can rejuvenate your skin by placing hyaluronic acid to add volume to areas and stimulate collagen growth and can overtime restore the face to a more natural appearance.  Fine lines can be filled with these HA fillers, softening them, and making them appear less deep.  Certain areas can also be more defined by using HA fillers, as some people might wish to have fuller lips or define the shape of their lips. The dermal filler product selection is essential for this to happen and needs to be determined by the aesthetician doing the treatment.

 

Common dermal filler products are Princess, Bolotero, Profhilo, Perfectha, Juvéderm and Restylane. All the products we used are tested thoroughly and backed by years of clinical trials and results before being used. Cost of treatment depends on each patient and essentially how much of the product is required. Early intervention with Dermal Fillers can mean less is needed later in life.

Fibroblasting with a Plasmapen
Fibroblasting with a Plasmapen

A plasmapen is a medical device which causes tiny burn wounds.  This device can be used with great success to remove unwanted skin tags and benign moles.  Please be aware that overly large moles should rather be removed surgically by a plastic surgeon.  Removal of these lesions will lead to a small brown scab (no cutting or sutures are involved!), which should naturally dislodge within a week.

 

The plasmapen can also be used to tighten up skin, and to soften lines (like the ones on ears following years of wearing overly heavy jewelry).  It is minimally invasive, and can be done by using topical anaesthetic alone, no injections or sedation needed.

Collagen Induction Therapy
Collagen Induction Therapy

This procedure is to strengthen skin, to reduce scars, and to improve the texture and tone of your skin.  We apply some topical anaesthetic to make the procedure as painless as possible.  With micro needling we can then introduce some agents into the skin.  The agents we use depend on what your needs might be.

 

This treatment is very successful for the treatment of stretchmarks or scarring.  It will thicken the skin due to the large amount of collagen that your body will naturally produce, and this will lead to much improved skin texture and tone.
