PRP vampire lift

PRP-vampirelift

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for skin rejuvenation

The options in the field of aesthetic skin treatment are becoming increasingly diverse. A relatively new and even chemical-free possibility is the so-called vampire lift, namely the application of PRP (platelet-rich plasma).

In this treatment method, blood taken from your vein is centrifuged and thrombocyte-enriched plasma is extracted within a sterile system for reintroduction as a subcutaneous injection. The treatment is generally carried out without the addition of any chemical additives and is therefore extremely low-risk.

Thrombocytes have a high volume of various growth factors. By means of physiological thrombocyte activation, these are released and have a tissue-regenerating effect. The fibroblasts in the tissue are stimulated and the production of elastin and collagen are activated. The production of hyaluronic acid increases, which binds an increasing amount of water and moisture. In addition, their own mesenchymal stem cells are attracted, which additionally accelerate the natural process of tissue generation and collagen development.

The result is an improved skin texture with revitalised skin. The effects last for up to 2 years. In the case of hair loss (effluvium), PRP frequently displays impressive results! Cell regeneration is stimulated at the hair root and has a positive effect on hair loss.

Treatment Procedure

At least three days (optimally 7 days) before beginning PRP therapy, you should not take any aspirin (ASS), Voltaren, Ibuprofen or similar painkillers or medication for rheumatism (NSAID), since they inhibit the blood platelets. Prior to therapy with PRP, blood is extracted and prepared in a special process. The objective is to separate the red blood cells from the blood plasma. In method similar to mesotherapy, it is then possible to directly inject PRP in pure form or enriched with medications, vitamins or trace elements into the scalp or the hair roots with ultrafine needles. Treatment takes about 45 minutes. A follow-up treatment with PRP stabilises and boosts the successful result.

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.

Procedure Procedure
Fine micro-electrodes penetrate the skin and send targeted radio frequency energy to the deep dermal layer.
Downtime: Downtime:
None
Anaesthesia: Anaesthesia:
The skin is prepared with anaesthetic cream.
Effective period: Effective period:
3-6 months with sustainable improvement of the skin structure


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.

Fraxel laser

FRACTIONAL LASER THERAPY
(FRAXEL-LASER / FRAXEL-CO LASER)

Skin firming and skin rejuvenation

Fractional laser therapy (using the Fraxel laser / Fraxel-CO2 laser) stimulates mature skin to produce youthful collagens, ultimately restoring lost elasticity and resilience. The skin looks fresher and healthier once more.  The result is visibly improved skin firming and skin rejuvenation. This type of laser treatment can also reduce scars and stretch marks. To achieve an optimal effect, 3-5 laser sessions at intervals of 4 weeks generally produce suitable results. Treatment is painless and there is no need to make changes to your professional responsibilities or social calendar. Depending on the treatment area, you may experience slight swelling for a period of 1-3 days following treatment.


Permanent hair removal

PERMANENT
HAIR REMOVAL

Epilation – highly effective and nearly painless laser treatment

We use the particularly gentle Alexandrit laser for our epilation treatments. This enables nearly painless and permanent hair removal. Undesirable side effects, like spots on the skin, generally do not occur as a result of treatment. The laser sends its light deep down into the hair root. Here it is transformed into heat to cauterize the hair roots. As a result, the roots are no longer able to produce hairs.

Result: A clearly visible effect can be seen after the first treatment. After an average of 5-7 laser treatments, you can expect undesired hair to be permanently removed. Treatment is gentle to surrounding tissue and the top layers of the skin.

We create an individual treatment concept that is right for you, according to your requirements and following a preliminary examination and a personal consultation. Please contact us to make an appointment.


Tattoo removal

TATTOO REMOVAL

The gentle and safe way to get rid of tattoos

Are you considering tattoo removal with laser? Our medical specialists are expert laser therapists and treat tattoos with the Q-switched Nd-YAG- and the Q-switched KTP lasers. During this treatment, the tattoo ink in the skin is destroyed without damaging the surface of the skin. With each treatment, the tattoos become increasingly paler until they finally disappear completely.

Non-professional tattoos are often removed after one to two sessions, while professionally inked tattoos require significantly more laser sessions. Black ink tattoos can be reliably removed while other colours have a higher degree of difficulty. Unfortunately, our technology (still) does not allow us to successfully treat white or very light green tones.

We create an individual treatment concept that is right for you, according to your requirements and following a preliminary examination and a personal consultation. Please contact us to make an appointment.

The treatment costs will be calculated individually according to the current fee scale for medical practitioners in Germany (GOÄ) and presented to you in a previous treatment agreement. Both statutory and private health insurance policies generally do not cover these costs.


Pigment spots and age spots

PIGMENT SPOTS
AND AGE SPOTS

Painless and permanent removal

They start out like normal freckles. But at some point, these spots that typically appear on the face or the back of the hands give away your age at first glance. In most cases these spots are nothing but harmless pigment densification (so-called Lentigo benigna). Although there are a number of cosmetic camouflage and bleaching creams on the market, these often do not live up to expectations. We treat pigment spots (pigmented lesions) and age spots using state-of-the-art medical laser technology. The laser treatment with the q-switched KTP laser (INTROS laser) is an effective alternative in the treatment of pigment spots and age spots that has minimal side effects. The laser impulses destroy the accumulation of pigment without damaging the skin surface and the spots disappear within a few weeks. The treatment is virtually painless and scar-free.


Rosacea

Rosacea

“Just a little bit red”

Are you tired of hearing when people comment on the “healthy” colour of your face and have you come to the conclusion that your blemishes are no longer a sign of eternal youth?

You are probably suffering from a type of rosacea, also known as couperose . This inflammatory skin disease often looks like adolescent acne. Only the correct diagnosis leads to proper treatment and permanent improvement.

The experienced specialists at Dermatologie des Westens are experts in treating this chronic disease. Treatment frequently begins with cream medication (rosacea cream) and/or pills. In the mid- and long-term, special medical-cosmetic treatments and a change in diet often make sense. Our specially trained and experienced medical cosmetician will support you in all relevant concerns. Even redness that has existed for years and visibly enlarged facial blood vessels magically disappear when treated with modern lasers.

Most of the abovementioned treatments are not covered by public health insurance plans.  Additional out of pocket costs will usually apply for optimal treatment.

Jet peeling treatment

Jet peeling treatment

New, gentle deep-peeling

The jet peeling concept is an innovative and especially gentle form of treatment, which combines the processes of deep cleansing, mechanical and chemical peeling, antioxidant protection and dermal hydration in one unique comprehensive process. The result is skin texture that is vitalised and smooth.

An application from aerospace technology is used to achieve this: a gas-water mixture is applied to the skin by pushing it through tiny jets at ultrasonic speed, ultimately gently removing the uppermost layer of dead skin. This process deep-cleans and massages the skin, promoting blood circulation and stimulating lymphatic activity. In a final step, hyaluronic acid and vitamin C are introduced into the deeper skin layers.

Jet peeling is an extremely refreshing elixir, which is suited to every skin type and season. It is an alternative to deep-cleansing microdermabrasion, for those having very sensitive skin.
