All the sub-items concerning "Botox & Co" on this page are intended to eliminate annoying wrinkles. Human beings have been striving to preserve their beautiful skin and youthful appearance since time immemorial. Botox and hyaluronic acid are the most popular procedures. In addition to this mesotherapy offers another option for treating the skin's upper surface. Mesotherapy tightens the skin by naturally stimulating the formation of collagen and new skin cells; makes skin "fresher" again and smoothens shallower wrinkles. It is a minimally invasive treatment during which micro-injections are used to inject special solutions into the upper and middle skin layers (the so-called mesodermis) – that is, to a depth of approximately 4 mm. The solutions contain hyaluronic acid, sometimes with added vitamins, amino acids and coenzymes. By using hyaluronic acid intensive hydration and subsequent tightening and firming of the skin texture can be achieved. Skin rejuvenation can also be achieved using own blood mesotherapy, in other words by injecting components obtained from the patient's own blood, such as stem cells and growth hormones. These substances play a crucial role in skin regeneration. This method can also be used to smoothen shallow wrinkles on the throat, cleavage or hands. Treatment usually only requires a mild topical anaesthetic (e.g. Emla cream). The patient's skin may appear swollen for a few days following treatment or there may be some slight bruising in the areas treated.
In addition to the above, we also use Sculptra (poly-L-lactic acid) to remedy a lack of facial volume by filling out larger areas. The decision whether to use Sculptra or hyaluronic acid is made on a case-by-case basis. In the case of Sculptra we recommend three consecutive treatments, giving a rejuvenating effect which lasts 2 years.
Alternatively, patients can select a treatment using their own body fat to fill out wrinkles or provide more volume as well, of course, as operative procedures such as face lifting.
