OUR COSMETIC TREATMENTS
Micro-needling (also known as mesotherapy) means “fine stitches” — and that’s exactly what it’s all about: With needling, the facial skin is treated with a derma pen or roller. This is equipped with many fine and very short needles that minimally damage the skin.
This action signals that there is a skin violation that needs to be repaired. The idea behind this is that micro-injuries stimulate the skin tissue to renew itself faster, which reveals fresh skin.
In addition, the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid is stimulated, and this can sometimes reduce wrinkles. However, that takes time. Several applications at intervals of three to four weeks are necessary for visible effects.
Micro-needling, as a tightening factor for the skin, also leads to finer pores and can stimulate a reduction in blemishes, especially in the case of acne scars.
A great advantage of micro-needling is the preservation of the natural thickness of the skin and the creation of permanent protection against external environmental influences. The best results are obtained by adding additional serums or hyaluronic acid.
Micro-needling should not be considered for skin cancer, acute herpes infections, psoriasis, diabetes mellitus, for fresh scars or acute acne infections and when blood thinners are taken.
Hydrogen facial treatment
Hydrogen treatment is a non-invasive method of skin renewal.
The hydrogen process combines the removal of dead skin cells and the deep cleansing of the skin after an acid peeling, with a subsequent dermal infusion of active ingredients such as antioxidants, vitamins or hyaluronic acid.
Here, the moisture content of the skin is increased, the complexion improves and hyperpigmentation is prevented.
Hydrogen treatment is a four-phase process:
Step 1: Skin ablation using a device that removes dead skin cells so that healthy skin can be seen.
Step 2: An acid peel is applied to soften the deposits in the pores.
Step 3: This is followed by deep cleansing with a kind of “mini vacuum cleaner” that sucks loosened sebum deposits out of the pores.
Step 4: Finally, there is the moisture booster for the skin, consisting of antioxidants, hyaluron and various vitamins.
Colour light therapy and optional lymph drainage can then promote the self-regeneration of the skin and the relaxation of the tissue.
After the HydraFacial treatment, make-up should be avoided for the rest of the day, and sun, solarium or sauna should be avoided for the following three days.
For an effective result, it is advisable to repeat the HydraFacial every four to five weeks in order to permanently improve the complexion.
Microdermabrasion treatment is a special peeling method in which ultra-fine sand or salt crystals abrade the top layer of skin. A pen-shaped device is used for this purpose. It radiates aluminium oxide, sand or salt crystals onto the skin and sucks them back in together with the removed skin flakes.
The aesthetic treatment comprises four steps:
First, there is a comprehensive skin analysis and a thorough cleansing of the skin in order to completely remove sebum. Microdermabrasion then takes place for about 15 to 30 minutes and is rounded off with a follow-up cleansing, a face mask and a moisturizer.
The effect of microdermabrasion is similar to a strong peeling and ensures that the pores are deeply cleansed and the microcirculation of the skin is stimulated so that the skin’s own regeneration processes can be promoted.
Microdermabrasion can help with acne scars, large pores, pigment disorders, blemished skin and the first wrinkles.
The treatment is not suitable for acne, neurodermatitis and psoriasis.
Treating the face with shock-wave and radiofrequency is a painless procedure that effectively reduces wrinkles and firms the skin.
The radio waves heat the water molecules of the dermal skin layers by means of vibrations. Aged collagen and elastin fibres are revitalized through targeted heating. The heat induces heat-protection proteins, which lead to new collagen formation and collagen reorganization. This improves the elasticity of the skin and ensures a more youthful and vibrant complexion.
In addition, the shock-wave treatment stimulates and trains the muscles in the visual field. This leads to faster regeneration and improved blood flow to the tissue. As a result, the shock wave impulses increase the structure and elasticity of the skin.
The classic facial treatment first includes demaquillage and a gentle peeling, manual cleansing and various masks or ampoules, depending on the skin type. Daily environmental influences such as dust, make-up, sweat and stress strain the skin, clog the pores and often make the face appear tired and sallow, and classic facial cleansing can counteract this.
