Unlike plastic surgery, where a portion of the aged and UV-damaged skin is just removed, we cosmetic dermatologists try to partially restore quality to skin which has been damaged by age and sun.
This is accomplished through replacements, activation, reduction of overactive facial expressions and partial removal (peeling) of skin layers.
Reducing overactive facial expression is done by injections of botolinumtoxin (most commonly known as Botox). A bubble can be produced by ultrasound in the oversized fat cells in cellulite, which destroys them when it bursts.
Radio frequency activates your skin’s natural elasticity and collagen cells to produce new collagen and elastin. The use of chemical peels and microdermabrasion can also activate your own collagen production.
Fraxel lasers remove the top layers of skin and leave invisible miniature holes, which new collagen is produced in.
Needle treatments function in a similar way: tiny holes are placed in the skin with a needle, partly to make new collagen form and partly so that previously-applied plant stem cells can penetrate deeper into the skin.
Using laser technology and IPL, we can gently remove troublesome pigmentation, enlarged veins, rosacea and spider veins, excessive hair growth and benign skin growths of any kind, mostly without leaving any scarring.

Rejuvenating treatments must be applied several times. The effects associated with injections, peels, microdermabrasion and laser treatments are quickly visible, while radiofrequency and ultrasound treatments display results after 1 - 2 months.
This evaluation ensures optimal care for the individual, tailored to their actual skin type. With this up-to-date skin analysis, a detailed profile of the improvement in skin quality can be documented and controlled.
