TREATMENTS

Anti Wrinkle Treatments

Anti-wrinkle treatments and treatments with Botulinum toxin (Botox ®) - prescription only.

The botulinum toxin is a prescription-only drug and is widely used in medicine to treat a wide range of conditions.

Botulinum toxin (Botox®) acts by temporarily blocking chemical nerve signals that tell the muscles to contract, thereby reducing (or sometimes eliminating) movement.

This effect helps to improve the appearance of dynamic lines (e.g. lines that that become apparent when we make a facial expression) that become permanent from repetitive movements and expressions, as well as the ageing process.

Static lines (lines that don’t disappear when our face is relaxed) or deep lines that appear due to the ageing process can also be improved with this treatment, but they usually benefit most from dermal fillers or a combination of anti-ageing procedures.

The botulinum toxin can be used under the arms to improve excess sweating and on the jaw muscles to slim the jaw-line or improve bruxism (teeth grinding).

The treatments we offer:
Forehead lines
Frown lines
Crow's feet
Bunny smile (nasalis)
Chemical brow lift
Gummy smile
Down-turned corners of the mouth
Smokers' lines (upper lip lines)
Dimpled chin

Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)

Some people suffer from excess sweating and can feel embarrassed by sweat marks under the arms, wet hands or feet.

Botox® can help to reduce excess sweating. When it is injected into the skin, it blocks the nerve supply to sweat glands and prevents the glands from producing sweat.

This doesn't cure hyperhidrosis but provides temporary relief and needs to be repeated every five to six months for maximum effect.

Procedure time: approx. 40 min

Onset of results: approx. 1 week

Duration of treatment: 4 to 6 months

Risk: Normal side effects can be swelling or bruising on the injection site. Every medical procedure carries a risk and this will be discussed before treatment.

Platysmal bands (Nefertiti neck lift / 'turkey' neck)

These bands are what pull down on the lower side of the face and aggravate the jowls. The ef-fect is to improve the definition of the jawline, relax the jowls, and provide an ‘upward lifting effect’ in the neck and jaw area.

Procedure time: approx. 40 min

On set of results: approx. 4 weeks

Duration of treatment: 3 to 4 months

Risk: The usual side effects can be swelling or bruising on the injection site. Every medical procedure carries a risk and this will be discussed before treatment.

Jaw reduction / bruxism (grinding teeth)

Botox® can reduce the overall size of the masseter muscle, allowing for improved facial propor-tions. It can also temporally improve the side effects of bruxism grinding teeth.

Procedure time: approx. 30 min

On set of results: approx. 4 weeks

Duration of treatment: 4 to 6 months

Risk: The usual side effects can be swelling or bruising on the injection site. Every medical procedure carries a risk and this will be discussed before treatment.


Dermal Fillers

There are many different types of fillers on the market. At VivaDerma Aesthetics, I use temporary fillers because of their benefits, versatility and safety. For hand filler treatments, however, I use a semi-permanent filler composed of Calcium Hydroxylapatite – CaHa. This is an inert bio-compatible filler that enhances volume and hydration.

The temporary filler looks like a clear gel and is composed of synthetic Hyaluronic Acid (HA). This is a substance that occurs naturally in the skin that gives it structure and suppleness through hydration.

As we get older, our skin contains less HA (and other substances). This results in a loss of volume due to reduced fat and changes in the body. This is what gives us a tired appearance as we age, with increased facial sagging and ‘hollows’. I use the filler to increase volume and ‘fill’ deeper lines, improving their appearance. I can also use it to help shape areas (such as lips and cheeks) and improve the appearance of scars. HA injections improve skin hydration.

Treatments:
Lip enhancement/augmentation.
Cheeks volume
Cheeks to define face contour and shape
Nasolabial folds (nose to mouth lines)
Marionette lines (mouth to chin lines)
Tear troughs (hollows under the eyes/dark circles under the eyes)
Non-surgical rhinoplasty (nose job)
Hand filling/rejuvenation (Both hands last up to 24 month)
Deep lines in the face
Fine lines on the face and neck

Procedure time: approx. 30 minutes.

Onset of results: immediately.

Duration of treatment: (the timeframe differs based on products and individuals).

Lips: between 5 and 12 months.

Cheeks: between 18 and 24 months.

Marionette lines and nasolabial folds: up to 12 months.

Tear trough: 9 to 12 months.

Non-surgical rhinoplasty: 6 to 9 months.

Hand fillers: up to 24 months.

Deep or fine lines: up to 12 months, depending the area.

Pain: local anaesthetic provided if required.

Risk: the usual side effects can be swelling or bruising on the injection site. Every medical procedure carries a risk and this will be discussed before treatment.


Skin Treatments

"THE PERFECT PEEL" ®

5-ACID BLENDED PEEL WITH GLUTATHIONE, VITAMINS AND MINERALS

CHEMICAL PEEL PROCEDURE PERFORMED EXCLUSIVELY BY MEDICALLY TRAINED PROFESSIONALS

"The Perfect Peel" ® is a revolutionary peel that will transform your skin and have it looking younger, healthier and clearer in just one week. The Perfect Peel can be used on all skin types and requires no pre-peel skin preparation. The process is virtually pain free.

WITH GLUTATHIONE

"The Perfect Peel" ® is based on Glutathione, a key anti-ageing ingredient that has never been used previously in a peel. Glutathione is the ultimate antioxidant, penetrating deep into the cellular level of the skin to fight oxidant damage. It is the anti-ageing answer to premature wrinkling. Our bodies produce glutathione naturally, but as we age, our levels deplete due to sun exposure, air pollutants, environmental stress and the ageing process itself. Glutathione is also proven to reverse melanin’s metabolism, lightening dark pigmentations.

"The Perfect Peel" ® blends glutathione, kojic acid, TCA, retinoic acid, salicylic acid, phenol, and a blend of minerals and vitamins, including vitamin C. Kojic acid is a powerful lightening agent and proven to increase collagen and elastin production, resulting in skin that is brighter and tighter. TCA, phenol and retinoic acid reduce wrinkles and correct pigment problems, while salicylic acid exfoliates the skin and reduces inflammation. The ingredients are powerful on their own, but in combination they produce results that are astonishing.

Following "The Perfect Peel" ®, you are provided with an individual home treatment pack. This pack contains retinol wipes and a vitamin C moisturiser to assist the peeling process and enhance your results.

Benefits:
Improve the overall tone and texture of your skin
Lighten and brighten your skin
Remove or reduce sun damage and age spots
Reduce pore size and soften fine lines and wrinkles
Reduce or eliminate hyperpigmentation and acne scars
Improve acne skin conditions and melasma
Stimulate the production of collagen resulting in firmer skin
Slow down the ageing process and prevent wrinkles

Procedure time: approx. 30 minutes.

Peeling process: the peeling starts during the 3rd day and lasts between 7 to 10 days. Your skin will be flaky but you can continue with your normal life.

Onset of results: can be seen after 7 days but skin continues improving for 28 days.

Duration of treatment: this depends on the individual. A good skin care regime is imperative and will influence the duration of the results.

Pain: virtually pain-free. Occasional feeling of heat.

Risk: Every medical procedure carries a risk and this will be discussed before treatment.


PROFHILO ®

What is PROFHILO ®?

Profhilo ® is the first BDDE-free stabilised injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) based product for treating skin laxity. Can be used in the face, neck and Décolletage. With one of the highest concentrations of HA on the market (64mg / 2ml) it is not only boosting and hydrating the skin, but also remodels the ageing and sagging tissue.

Profhilo ® delivers great results as a treatment on its own or in combination with other aesthetics treatments currently on offer.

How does PROFHILO ® Work

As a stabilised product Profhilo ® lasts in the skin around 28 days. During this time the stimulation of 4 different types of collagen and elastin takes place by slow release of HA.

The stimulation results in significant tissue improvement. Therefore we cannot say that Profhilo ® is a skin booster as it also has a significant tightening / lifting effect on the tissue.

Unique Product

There are many characteristics that make Profhilo ® unique from anything else available on the market right now. There is no BDDE content. It is thermally cross-linked generating stabilised hybrid co-operative complexes of H-HA and L-HA. Despite its high HA content, it has a low inflammatory profile coupled with pro-healing properties backed by clinical studies. To fully understand this new concept in anti-ageing medicine we have to take a look at the technology first
