wrinkles

BOTOX
Botulinum toxin is the most effective method worldwide for correcting expression wrinkles such as frown lines, crow’s feet, wrinkles on the upper lip and chin, and hanging corners of the mouth. In the process, the injected toxin temporarily inhibits the nerve impulse to the muscles and thereby calms muscular movement, resulting in visible smoothing of the wrinkles. Treatment with botulinum toxin brings new freshness to your face without surgery. It is outpatient and only takes about 15 minutes, depending on the number and characteristics of the affected areas. It takes about 3-5 days to take effect, but may take a little longer in exceptional cases. Due to temporarily blocking nerve stimulation, the result lasts for several months.

By injecting specific trigger points, it is also possible to correct undesirable facial features such as what is called a “gummy smile”, a drooping nose tip, wide nostrils, strongly accentuated cheek muscles, and a dominant chin.

HYALURON INJECTIONS
When treating wrinkles with hyaluronic acid filler:

  • Static wrinkles, such as nasolobial or puppet wrinkles, can be effectively corrected
  • as well as age-related reduced volume in the face, such as tear lines, narrow lips, sunken temples, or a receding chin.

Depending on the area to be treated, different demands are made on the product and the technology used. This requires sound knowledge and training. Profound anatomical knowledge is a prerequisite for achieving the best possible result.

The effect is immediately visible and lasts for several months.

eyes

LIQUID EYES AND EYEBROW LIFTING
Botox injections in the area of the eye muscles soften crow’s feet and open up the eye. By injecting a hyaluronic acid filler specially developed for the sensitive eye area, the eyebrows are raised, sunken temples lifted, and deep eye rings disappear. The effect is unique and comparable to a surgical eye lift. Due to the new technology of this dermafiler, the effect occurs immediately without leaving telling marks such as bruises, swelling, or redness. The results last up to 2 years.

EYE RINGS
Using a special cannula, a very fine hyaluronic acid, specially developed for this area, is injected completely painlessly into the area around the eyes. This hyaluronic acid is additionally enriched with skin-regenerating substances which will significantly improve the thin skin of the dark circles over the following months. There are no bruises during this treatment, it is completely painless, and the result is immediately visible.

The result lasts 1-2 years.

This patient was treated by Dr. Christine Hoffman.

lips

LIP CONTOURING OR LIP STRUCTURE
A particularly soft hyaluronic acid filler is injected into the lips using a wafer-thin, blunt cannula in such a way that the unwanted small wrinkles around the mouth can be smoothed out and the lip contour can be emphasised again or – as desired – individual lip enlargement can be achieved.

neck

NEFERTITI NECK LIFT
The Egyptian queen Nefertiti was considered the most beautiful woman in the world in ancient times and was known for her perfect neck .

By injecting botulinum toxin into the platysm muscle of the neck and chest area, the protruding platysmal ligaments are relaxed and the neck is smoothed out.

In some cases a supplementary treatment with hyaluronic acid filler, mesotherapy, thread lifting or laser treatment can further improve the result.

Which treatment is necessary for a harmonious overall picture always depends on the individual.

LIQUID FACE LIFT
A rejuvenation treatment combining injections with botulinum toxin and hyaluronic acid filler. The facial muscles are first relaxed by targeted injection of botulinum toxin. In addition, a specific hyaluronic acid filler is placed in the area of sunk temples, lower rings around the eyes, hanging cheeks, and hamster cheeks using a blunt cannula to create an immediate lifting effect. Without the tell-tale features of an operation such as bruises, redness, or swelling, you immediately look at least 5 to 10 years younger.

MESOTHERAPY
Mesotherapy is a complementary medical treatment method developed in France around 1960. Depending on the indication in question, homeopathic and low-dose drugs are injected superficially into the skin.

The areas of application range from wound healing disorders, neurodermatitis and hair loss to the prevention and treatment of skin aging (Mesolift/Mesoglow).

Mesoglow is a combination of a chemical peel and mesotherapy. After a gentle chemical peel, active ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, vitamins, trace elements, and amino acids are injected directly into the surface layers of the skin using a meso pistol. This not only delays the natural aging process of the skin but also effectively treats it. After just one treatment your skin looks clearly refreshed and firmer. This method is suitable for treating tired skin on the face, neck, chest area, and back of the hands.

For a lasting effect, Mesoglow should be repeated regularly.

THREAD LIFT
The thread lift for a fresh, radiant appearance without surgery and without a scalpel. 

Thread lifting is a minimally invasive procedure in which youthful contours can be restored without the need for a scalpel or surgery.

Polydioxanone (PDO) filaments are placed into the skin connective tissue with the aid of a blunt cannula and lead to a significant increase in collagen production. At the same time, the microscopic barbs on the threads tighten the skin even more. After about 8-10 months, the PDO threads are completely absorbed by the body.

Generally thread lifting has no side effects. The threads themselves are well tolerated and completely absorbed by the body. Since the threads are not inserted into the skin with a sharp needle but with a blunt cannula, the risk of damaging vessels or nerves is also reduced to a minimum. The development of bruises is small.

Rarely, swelling and pressure sensitivity can occur at the injection sites, which usually subside after a few days even without further treatment.

PLAMALIFT -VAMPIRE LIFT
With this method of skin regeneration, several millilitres of blood are taken, centrifuged immediately and then the plasma (PRP) rich in growth factors and skin-rejuvenating proteins is superficially injected back into the skin. PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma.

Vampire lifting therefore uses the body’s own blood to support the skin’s natural repair mechanism. With the help of growth factors, cell renewal is stimulated and collagen formation is stimulated.

Plasma lifting counteracts the first signs of skin aging. This gentle and effective method is particularly suitable for treating sun-damaged, mature skin, as well as for skin tightening and wrinkle smoothing.

The result is sustainably youthfully fresh and healthy skin. This method is particularly suitable for treating sun-damaged mature skin, as well as for treating acne, acne scars, and hair loss. On request, the plasma can also be combined with hyaluronic acid and vitamins.

In some cases a combination treatment with Botox or hyaluronic acid is recommended.

small veins / couperosis

Couperosis is superficial, fine vasodilatation of the skin, usually in the area of the cheeks and nose, sometimes also on the neck and chest area. Various causes such as sun exposure, high blood pressure, or rosacea can cause this redness.

Permanently removing the dilated veins is possible by laser treatment. In some cases a single treatment is sufficient; in the case of pronounced symptoms several treatments are necessary.

acne

Fortunately, there is now a whole range of methods for treating acne professionally and effectively.

In addition to the highly effective combination of medicinal and local therapeutic treatment methods, numerous medical-cosmetic treatment methods are also available.

Excellent results are achieved by a combination of a chemical peel, PRP autoblood therapy, and medical care products specifically developed for acne skin.

These contain not only natural care substances, but therapeutic agents such as hormones, antibiotics, vitamins, etc. for the effective and lasting treatment of skin problems such as acne, rosacea, and sun-damaged, prematurely aging skin.

sun damage to the skin: pigment spots etc.

In addition to the numerous positive effects of the sun on body and soul, UV rays are also the number one skin aging factor.
They are responsible for numerous UV-induced skin damage problems such as pigment spots, actinic keractoses, squamous cell carcinomas, and melanomas.

Pigment spots are caused by UV-induced overproduction of melanin. This leads to flat, light brown to black spots in various shapes and sizes on your skin.

Actinic keratosis has become a widespread disease in Europe.

15% of all men and 6% of all women are affected. Long-term UV exposure, especially on areas exposed to strong sunlight such as the nose, ears, a bald head, etc., causes cornifications on the skin which can develop into invasive plate-epithelial carcinoma in 10% of cases.

Photodynamic therapy is an innovative and highly effective treatment option.

SKIN RESURFACING WITH FRACTONAL CO² – SKIN RENEWAL LASER

One of the most effective methods of treating signs of aging of the skin.

  • Skin firming
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Pigment spots
  • Scars (e.g. acne scars, surgical scars, burn scars)
  • Structural irregularities of the skin
  • Sun damage (solar / actinic elastosis and keratosis)

With increasing age, the quality and elasticity of the skin deteriorate, resulting in wrinkles, pigment spots, and structural irregularities. An additional loss of volume in the face also contributes to an older appearance.

Skin aging is determined by its genetic constitution, but external factors such as smoking, excessive sunbathing, and poor nutrition also accelerate the formation of wrinkles.

Fractional CO2 laser treatment is one of the most effective methods to reduce wrinkles and fine lines and to treat slack skin.

With this method, the uppermost layers of the skin are first removed (vaporised) by the release of therapeutic energy to the skin and the skin connective tissue is tightened and then the formation of new collagen is stimulated by the resulting warming.

Removing the upper skin layers as a therapeutic alternative to a surgical facelift.

Although the laser treatment for skin rejuvenation is usually performed on the face, it is a procedure that can be applied to the entire body.

  • Reduction of skin sagging
  • Reduction of fine wrinkles and lines
  • Improvement of skin firmness, skin texture
  • Pore size reduction

In addition, it improves the appearance of sun-damaged skin and the skin is given a healthy appearance.

Since fractional skin resurfacing is associated with minor discomfort and minimal healing time, this method is a real alternative to a surgical face lift. This method keeps its promise to soothe the flaws on your skin and promote the regeneration of collagen, restoring your skin’s youthful appearance in terms of texture, tone, and colour.

Which skin conditions can be improved by CO² laser treatment?

  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles on the face
  • Gives the skin a firmer and smoother appearance
  • Reduces scars
  • Reduces sun damage such as brown spots
  • Reduces skin stains and ensures a more even skin tone
  • Reduces pigmented and vascular skin symptoms

The result depends on age, degree of sun damage, and skin type. This treatment shows a clear rejuvenation of the skin after just one session.

The sensation of pain or other ailments is of a different intensity in each person. Local anaesthetic measures keep potential pain as low as possible. The entire area to be treated can be anaesthetised by an additional nerve blockade.

After the treatment, you may experience swelling and redness for a few days. In most cases, these symptoms subside within three weeks. During this period – with the exception of the first few days after the treatment – you can apply makeup to cover the redness.

After only a few days, your skin looks smoother and has a more even skin tone. Your skin will improve over a period of six to nine months as old collagen is continuously broken down and replaced with new collagen.

Deep scars and/or wrinkles may require multiple treatments. The number of treatments also depends on your own expectations and can be repeated after only a few months.

PHOTODYNAMIC THERAPY

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a non-invasive treatment method for UV-induced skin damage. A light-active substance is applied to the affected skin areas. This is mainly absorbed by the diseased and light-damaged skin cells.

The interaction of the light-active substance with daylight causes the light-damaged skin cells to die. The treated area appears reddened and slightly swollen after therapy. The initial skin burn subsides in a short time. In the following days, encrustation occurs as the dead diseased skin cells are rejected. The individual reaction depends on the number of diseased cells destroyed by PDT and can also lead to chills and fever for a short time in severe cases. The light-active substance is absorbed exclusively by the sun-damaged cells. The healthy cells are retained.

The cosmetic result is a significant reduction in sun damage such as pigment spots and actinic keratoses. As a positive side effect, the skin is also tightened by the formation of new collagen and the reduction of small wrinkles.
