Botox can be used to rejuvenate a tired appearance and to soften active lines and wrinkles by relaxing the responsible muscles.  The beauty of Botox is that the effects are temporary.  Botox treatment lasts from 2 to 4 months and should be repeated for long-term results.

Forehead lines

Smokers lines

The use of Botox for therapeutic applications is well established and it is approved as an effective treatment for bruxism (grinding of teeth), hyperhidrosis, hemi facial spasms and headaches.

Botox can be used in combination with Dermal fillers, chemical peels, mesotherapy and other treatments to reverse the visible signs of ageing.

Facial ageing involves multifactorial processes that affect different facial structures.  Biometric volume loss occurs due to facial bone resorption (bone loss), fat loss and fat redistribution together with muscle atrophy.  Dermal collagen loss also occurs with lax skin. The combination of the abovementioned contributing factors results in visible lines and creases (sagging). Most modern-day dermal fillers are temporary and consists of hyaluronic acids (cross-linked or non-cross-linked). Hyaluronic acid is a natural component of the skin. It is fully bio-degradable and safe. It is a sculpting agent that achieves miraculous results in the hands of experienced injectors. Dermal fillers help restore lost volume, lifts and shapes the face whilst also hydrating the skin.  They enhance rejuvenation through collagen and elastin stimulation. Cross-linked dermal fillers last for 9 – 24 months. Three kinds of semi- permanent fillers are also available, the most popular being Ellansé (Polycaprolactone). Depending on the specific product (Ellansé S M L E) its effect lasts anything from 1 – 4 years.

Cheek augmentation

Also known as the “Mini Face-lift”, this is a non-surgical treatment that instantly lifts skin on the face, neck or body. Threads have a dual action:  a lifting action for instant yet discreet results.  It also has a secondary regenerating action for gradual and natural results.  The latter involves the formation of collagen bands in the subcutaneous plane, supporting sagging tissue.  Results can last for 12-18 months depending on the product used.

Silhouette soft and PDO threads are available.

The blood platelets carry the body’s anti-aging factors (growth factors and cytokines). The patient’s blood is collected and centrifuged to obtain a very high concentration of blood platelets.  PRP is introduced into the skin with Mesotherapy (needles) or the latest Mesotherapy device (Mesoskin) using electroporation and microchip transdermal technology (needle-less). PRP is highly effective in improving cell regeneration by releasing growth factors and migration of stem cells to the skin.  It accelerates synthesis of collagen and elastin resulting in skin rejuvenation.  It is also effective in treating hair loss.

Plasmatek uses a new treatment technology, based on electrical discharge – plasma (beam of electrons and ions).  The discharge voltage is highly controlled leading to predictable results without scarring. 

Used for:

Fine lines and wrinkles (crows feet, nasolabial folds, smokers lines)

Ear fold lines

Removal of skin tags, moles, warts, keratosis, sun spots etc.

Non-surgical Blepharoplasty (hooded eyelids)

Scar removal

Lipolysis is a medical procedure that melts and removes unwanted fatty deposits. Lipolysis is commonly used on parts of the body that can’t be adequately shaped with persistent diet and exercise, like the thighs, buttocks, hips, stomach and chin.

Mesotherapy is a treatment involving micro-injections.  The needles can deliver various skin enhancement combinations directly into the mesoderm (middle layer of the skin).  Vitamins, minerals, amino acids and even fillers can be injected to nourish and refresh the skin and promote collagen and elastin production.

Used for:

Skin rejuvenation

Stretch marks

Acne and other scars

Pigmentation

Hair loss

Dermapen is a medically engineered skin needling device that uses 16 surgical grade micro-needles oscillating at a speed of 120/second which creates 1900 microchannels per second. It triggers the skin’s own natural healing mechanisms, resulting in rejuvenation and correction.  A skin cocktail, developed specifically for your individual needs can be delivered into the skin with high accuracy.

A chemical peel is a controlled wounding of the skin with an acid based solution to a predetermined level.  It hastens the removal of aged and dead surface skin cells, generating a healing response with improved growth and stimulation of new skin cell formation.

WEIGHT LOSS

Slender Wonder is a medical weight loss program that treats the cause of becoming overweight and obese, and not just the symptoms. The Slender Wonder formula is based on a low-GI eating plan, Slender Wonder products and a series of injections. The system is proven to ensure the loss of non-structural “bad” fat and not a reduction in kilograms due to the loss of muscle or water. The program is divided into five phases and once the maintenance phase kicks in, Leptin sensitivity is restored which assists in maintaining weight – provided a healthy lifestyle is maintained. Results may vary and are patient dependent. The Slender Wonder Medical Weight Loss Program can only be done through a network of accredited Slender Wonder doctors.

For resistant fat reduction, Carboxy Therapy is done at a higher volume, introduced deep into the fat. This breaks up the fat cells and stimulates new vessels, lymphatic drainage and rejuvenation.

Lipotropics are substances that affect fat metabolism in the body. Lipotropic compounds are a combination of ingredients that help improve the breakdown of fat in the liver. It speeds up the metabolism and elimination of fat. In recent years, lipotropic injections have been promoted for the purposes of weight loss and sometimes for improved energy.

Lipolysis is a medical procedure that melts and removes unwanted fatty deposits. Lipolysis is commonly used on parts of the body that can’t be adequately shaped with persistent diet and exercise, like the thighs, buttocks, hips, stomach and chin.
