RFM-radio frequency with microneedling

RFM-RADIO FREQUENCY
WITH MICRONEEDLING

Innovative non-surgical treatment to soften wrinkles and firm skin

Many skin firming and rejuvenating procedures are painful and require extensive downtimes.

Fractionated radio frequency therapy, which uses fine microneedle electrodes, is a gentle and effective alternative. A new technology enables fine micro-electrodes to penetrate the skin and precisely deliver radio frequency energy to the deep dermal layer. As a result of the targeted thermal effect, collagen fibres are firmed and stimulated to enable continued collagen generation. Initial results are visible only a few days after treatment. The skin looks firm and rejuvenated. The new formation of resilient and rejuvenated collagen structures is stimulated for 3-6 months and continues to visibly and sustainably improve skin structure.

The depth and intensity of the treatments can be individually adapted to the treatment regions and your needs. Since the skin is treated in advance with an anaesthetic cream, the application is practically painless. There are no downtimes and you can immediately continue with your daily activities.

Radio frequency with microneedling is also a good alternative to surgical sweat gland suctioning. Using this method, unpleasant excessive underarm perspiration can be sustainably improved.

PDO thread lift

PDO thread lift

Thread lifting with PDO stitching (polydioxanone)

With age, our skin gradually loses its resilience. Depending on the progression of the skin’s ageing, the lack of dermal elasticity can lead to prominent wrinkles. A thread lift is especially recommended when the complexion displays overall slack, but there is not so much excessive skin. The thread lift method effectively firms skin and tissue to reliably soften the impact of gravity as a result of aged skin. New collagen fibres develop in the area surrounding the inserted thread. As a result, skin elasticity is increased. Wrinkles are smoothed and the complexion is tauter. The overall effect is completely natural: the thread itself does not firm the skin, but rather merely triggers the lifting effect by stimulating cell growth.

Treatment Procedure

Thread lifting is a minimally invasive procedure. It does not require making incisions, which are necessary for a traditional face lift. During treatment, fine threads are placed underneath the skin. This is done by inserting a very fine needle beneath the surface of the skin, in which the thread is located. Once the thread is anchored at the far end, the needle is removed. The PDO threads are completely reabsorbed after about 6-8 months. The treatment result lasts ca. 12 months.

Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic Acid

Volume enhancement for skin rejuvenation

A youthful looking face has rounded contours and high softly curved cheekbones, a clearly defined chin line and smooth curves that extend from the cheeks to the wings of the nose.
As we age, our body produces less natural hyaluronic acid. Facial volume fades. Our skin becomes drier and loses its resilience. The results are wrinkles beneath the eyes and in other parts of the face, along with sunken cheeks. In addition, the nasolabial folds and marionette lines become more prominent.

Previous treatment of decreased facial volume only involved the use of fillers. Our current treatments include the application of additional excellent products and techniques. Of particular mention here are the hyaluron preparations developed for an effect that lasts for up to twelve months and longer. They are applied in the deeper layers of the facial tissue and are even able to reach the underlying bone structures.

With this treatment, you can successfully fight the results of the ageing process. It is a completely natural way to make your skin look healthy and beautiful.

Coming soon:

Depending on the diagnosis, the following indications can be treated with specific filler products:

  • Nasolabial folds/marionette lines
  • Smoker’s lines
  • Pleating lines around the lips
  • Lip plumping/Volume enhancement of the lips
  • Deep wrinkles at the corner of the mouth and nasal wings
  • Volume enhancement on cheeks and chin
  • Earlobes
  • Therapy of rings around the eyes

Depending on the specific indication of the individual case, volume enhancement can be achieved with EMERVEL® (VOLU- ME®, DEEP®, LIPS®, TOUCH®) or JUVEDERM® (VOLUMA®, VOLIFT®, VOLBELLA®, ULTRA3® and ULTRA4®).

Treatment Procedure

The dermal filler is injected in the designated area with a fine needle or blunt cannula. The treatment is practically painless, since the products contain a local anaesthetic.
Patients do not have to plan any downtime. You can carry on with social events or professional responsibilities on the same day. Hyaluronic acid is naturally decomposed by the body. Depending on the product, the effect lasts for 8-18 months. We recommend a corresponding follow-up treatment in accordance with your desired results.

Eliminating lines on neck and décolleté

Damage due to exposure to the sun is most noticeably visible on the face, neck, décolleté and hands. In order to eliminate these signs of ageing, different types of hyaluron products can be combined. This can be supplemented with a laser treatment. For mimic lines, a combination with the additional use of botulinum (Botox®) can provide the desired results.

Skin booster for sagging skin

When we age, our skin loses its ability to retain moisture. The skin seems to slack. Special hyaluronic acid injections, injected across the surface of the skin and which combine a low-consistency active substance with good moisture retention capacity, present an ideal therapy.
For this treatment to have a long-lasting effect, it should be repeated after six weeks and again after six months.

Therapying dark circles below the eyes

Many of us already suffer from tired-looking eyes with dark circles around the eye area as early as our late thirties. These can be caused by natural changes to the bone structure of the skull, genetic factors, excessive sunlight, cigarette smoking and not enough sleep. There are a wide range of applications using hyaluronic acid that can counter this. Low-consistency preparations are injected across a larger surface to lift the brow area, to make your eyes larger and brighter again. Volume is injected into dark tear troughs to make them look rested again. Your eyes are clear and open wider. This treatment is ideally suited in combination with fractionated laser therapy (the Fraxel laser/Fraxel CO2 laser).


Botox

Botox® (botulinium toxin)

Smoothes wrinkles effectively

Botox® is the name of the medication containing the active substance botulinum toxin type A. This active substance is a biologically generated protein of the clostridium botulinum bacteria and has been successfully used for medical treatments since the 1980s. In recent years, Botox® has been used to reduce wrinkles. Other therapeutic applications include excessive perspiration and migraine headaches.

The specialists at DERMATOLOGIE des WESTENS are experts for the accurate and pain-free injection of Botox® in those muscles that form wrinkles when contracted too severely. The injected medication blocks a messenger substance, which tells the muscle that it should contract. As a result, the treated facial muscles relax. Previously existing wrinkles are smoothed for a period of three to seven months. The most popular areas of application are to counteract frown lines, furrows above the brow, lines around the eyes and drooping at the corners of the mouth.  Botox® is the most effective substance against lines caused by facial expressions. It is gentle, safe and free of side effects. It maintains your natural appearance. Only a few pricks with the needle are necessary for you to look naturally young and fresh again.

The therapy to counteract excessive perspiration is effected by blocking the sweat glands. The effect lasts up to seven months.

For our treatments we use certified products manufactured by global market leaders: Botox®, Azzalure®, Dysport®, Vistabel®

Treatment Procedure

Botox® treatments at DERMATOLOGIE des WESTENS are out-patient treatments and practically painless. They produce predictable results that are visible within two weeks after receiving treatment. Patients do not experience downtimes. They can immediately go about their daily activities.

Microneedling

Microneedling

Treatment of acne scars, stretch marks and ageing skin

Microneedling (collagen induction therapy) helps to maintain youthful, fresh-looking skin and significantly improve existing irregularities in the complexion. The specially formed microneedles penetrate the skin and stimulate the skin’s regeneration from deep within the collagen tissue.

Medical microneedling:

This treatment is performed in the practice under local anaesthesia with the objective of treating visible signs of skin ageing, stretch marks and acne scars.

Cosmetic microneedling:

With the use of a needle roller suited for home-based application, the top layer of the skin is limbered. This enables, for example, hyaluronic acid serum to deeply infiltrate the skin. The treatment does not require pain relief.

Optimal treatment results are achieved by the combination of medical and subsequent cosmetic microneedling along with supplementary treatments like mesotherapy, chemical peelings and treatment with filler.

An improvement can usually be seen after the first treatment. Treatment intervals of 6-8 weeks are recommended.
