Recent advances in Esthetic Dermatology and Cosmetology allow us to achieve outstanding and natural facial rejuvenation results, in less than an hour. Within this time frame we can safely and quickly deal with wrinkles caused by facial expressions in the upper face, restore volume loss in the central portion of the face and reduce the ‘sagging’ observed in the lower face around the jaw-line. All these procedures are performed with minimal discomfort.
After our session there might be some minimal redness which can be covered up with make up and you can return to work on the same day. More specifically:
Forehead - eyes
Wrinkles in the forehead, between and around the eyes and treated easily and quickly with the use of botox/disport. The results appear after about 4-5 days and last about 4-6 months, depending on the severity of the problem and number of previous sessions.
Cheekbones – nose to lips wrinkles
Volume loss (essentially fat loss), in the central portion of the face, below the eyes and above the mouth give a tired and hollow expression. This is treated easily and quickly with the use of fillers, such as hyaluronic acid. The results are immediately evident and depending on the area treated and the material used last between 6 months and 2 years. Alternatively we can use your own fat for even better and longer lasting results by performing lipofilling – lipotransfer, but this technique (in which we specialise) takes longer than a lunch brake!
Mouth – Jawline - Neck
Wrinkles around the mouth and sagging of the jawline and neck are best treated with the use of absorbable threads, in the so called ‘thread lift’. These threads are placed under the skin quickly and painlessly and are absorbed after 6 months to 1 year. Depending on the type of threads used, one or more sessions are required, while the results last for 1 to 2 years.
Threads and thread - lifts have been used in aesthetic Dermatology for many years. New developments that took place and gave a new boost have more to do with choice of materials for their manufacture and some small but important novelties in the way of use.
The bottom line is that threads are possibly one of the best methods for improving the look of the lower face. They deal with the improve the drooping appearance that comes with age around the jaw and jaw-line and skin laxity in the neck. They also have good results when used for smoker's lines in...
Hyaluronic acid is the only foreign (heterologous) filler that we use in our practice.
This is because it has proven its safety, in contrast to collagen, silicone and other materials that have been used over the years. With the correct usage of a quality material any possible adverse reactions are extremely rare. Still, we use it mainly in the nasolabial folds and in deeper wrinkles around the mouth where the result is very pleasing and natural.
When we believe that a larger amount is required for volume and if the areas that need to be addressed are other like for example lips,...
The use of Botox revolutionized aesthetic dermatology since it became a safe and quick method for dealing with wrinkles caused by expression.
Its periodic use either prevents their formation, greatly improves or clears already established ones. First treatment usually lasts 4-6 months but after 2-3 sessions, it is only required every six months and then once a year is enough to sustain a good result.
The longevity of the effect depends not only on the quality of the product used (we only use Botox and Dysport), but also on its dilution, the time since its constitution and the way of preservation. All...
The oldest of these methods, remains a proven classic.
The results of a peel depend to a large extent on the doctor performing it. Since we use these methods since 1980, our experience is unsurpassed. Different combinations of substances and establishing the correct time of exposure affect the depth of action and bring about our excellent results. Mild peels make your face shine and cause slight skin tightening, with no discomfort and no ‘down-time’, so you can return to your work or social life on the day of our session.
We routinely use deeper peels to treat acne scars, wrinkles and age...
