Fraxel 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.

Cosmetic treatment of acne


Peelings and microdermabrasion

A team of experienced medical cosmeticians awaits you at Dermatologie des Westens. Cosmetic treatments are performed in the pleasant atmosphere of the practice, right down the hall from your doctor’s office.

Classical manual therapy removes blemishes and relieves inflammations. Chemical peeling and “microdermabrasion” accelerates skin regeneration and banishes unsightly spots, pigmentations and acne scars. Skin care products and micronutrients have a calming effect on the skin, purify and promote regeneration.

Our highly-trained cosmetic team provides you with individual care and cooperates with you and the treating physician to create your treatment plan for a speedy recovery and a glowing complexion.

We work exclusively with high-quality brand-name products from leading manufacturers. We primarily use the acne therapy products from Ästhetico® and Skinceuticals®.

Anti-ageing and treatment of acne

Acne and blemished skin can be effectively treated with a peeling. There are various types of peelings:

Jet peeling: This deep peel is an innovation from the USA, which is exceptionally gentle, painless and effective. DERMATOLOGIE des WESTENS is now also using jet peeling to treat acne, scars and wrinkles. The application rejuvenates the skin texture in no time, by reducing lines and improving the complexion.

Fruit acid peeling: Fruit acid reduces the cohesion of scaly, dead skin therefore loosening them for easy removal. It has a moisture-regulating effect and stimulates cellular metabolism. Treatments are given bi-weekly over a period of 2 to 3 months. During this time, the concentration of the acid is continuously increased. The treatment is generally well-tolerated and can even be performed during your lunch break. That’s why it is also known as the “lunch peeling”. Fruit acids are particularly effective for patients with acne and pigmenting.

Trichloroacetic acid (TCA): TCA peelings are used for medium-deep and deep peelings. Their application is used to treat wrinkles and extensive pigmentations. The peeling effect is so intense, that you will want to plan a downtime of approx. 1 week. But the result is well-worth it. Generally, 2-4 sessions in intervals of 2 weeks are performed. Local anaesthesia is required, usually in the form of a numbing cream.

Microdermabrasion: This is an alternative to chemical peelings. Innovative state-of-the-art technology enables a particularly gentle and effective mechanical peeling. An extremely fine quartz sand is sprayed on to the skin and immediately removed again by suctioning. This treatment is especially suited for treating discolorations/pigmentations and blemished skin. All types of skin can be treated; even darker complexions and treatment can also be performed during the summer months. Microdermabrasion is an ideal preparation and follow-up treatment for a chemical peeling.

Some additional tips:

  • In the shower, massage your upper arms, thighs and buttocks with a body brush, a coarse sponge or a peeling solution. After drying your skin, rub on some lotion or cream containing urea.
  • On vacation, you can treat yourself to a completely natural peeling by rubbing your skin with fine beach sand and subsequently creaming the cleaned skin.
  • The right peeling for you and the number of required treatments will be determined in a comprehensive and individual consultation, based on the diagnosis and skin type.
