Wrinkles

Lines, wrinkles and creases appear when our skin becomes less flexible. Stress, sun damage and an unhealthy lifestyle can speed up this process and worsen the visible effects. Wrinkles can make such an impact on your appearance, that they can completely alter your expression. You may look older or sad, while you don’t feel that way at all.

TREATMENTS
There are multiple treatments for the temporary or longer-lasting reduction and removal of wrinkles, each differing in characteristics like duration, speed, frequency, effectiveness and price. To give you a fair representation of the options, we’ve summed up all of our available treatments for the reduction or removal of wrinkles:

Fillers

Lines and wrinkles that have been caused by ageing are treated by injecting a fluid that is based on hyaluronic acid. This substance retains moisture and fat, giving the skin its volume and firmness. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally present in our bodies but will begin to deplete when we reach our thirties. This depletion causes our skin to lose flexibility, resulting in wrinkles. Injectable fluids containing hyaluronic acid can temporarily reverse this ageing process, giving you a refreshed look and a visibly rejuvenated skin.

Duration of recovery and results
The effects of an injectable treatment are instantly visible and can last from 6 up to 18 months. Its visibility will reduce over time and eventually disappear. The treatment is risk-free and may be repeated to retain the optimal results.

Botox

Forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet are caused by our mimicry and unconscious muscle contractions. When we inject the muscle that is causing the wrinkle with Botulinum toxin, that muscle will relax, causing the wrinkle to fade or even disappear.

Frequency & duration of recovery and results
The effects of botulinum toxin start to show after a few days, but it takes approximately two weeks for the optimal result to form. After 4 to 6 months, the result starts to fade and disappear. If the treatment is repeated more often in the beginning, the result will be visible for a longer duration.

Liquid Facelift

If you have both wrinkles caused by ageing and wrinkles caused by muscle contractions, we can also treat both types of wrinkles at once in a combined treatment. The wrinkles caused by muscle contractions will be injected with botulinum toxin, and the remaining wrinkles and irregularities will be filled with an injectable fluid containing hyaluronic acid.

Duration of recovery and results
Due to the use of different types of injectable fluids, some effects will be instantly visible, while others won’t show until after the first couple of days. Also, the duration of the results varies, from 9 to 18 months, depending on which products were used.

Thread lift

When ageing of the skin has caused the skin to start sagging in certain parts of the face, the neck or the cleavage, a thread lift treatment can offer a solution. Organic, biodegradable sutures are placed in the subcutaneous tissue of the areas that need lifting. They secure themselves in the desired direction, and as they dissolve, this triggers a reaction that causes collagen to form in the exact same area. This new collagen will take over from the sutures and start lifting the sagged skin while it also adds volume and firmness.

Duration of recovery and results
After the treatment, you will immediately notice that the skin is fuller and firmer and that wrinkles are already less visible. The optimal result will reveal itself after all sutures have dissolved and are replaced by collagen. This process usually takes around six weeks to accomplish. Depending on the type of suture used, the results will last anywhere between 6 and 18 months.

Micro Needling

microneedling
During this treatment, we use the Enterpen: a cluster of very small needles in a vibrating casing. With the Enterpen, we can puncture the skin with microscopically small holes in areas where symptoms of skin ageing have started to show. The treated skin reacts as if it were damaged and automatically starts its renewal process by producing collagen and elastin. Collagen plays an important part in making the skin tighter, fuller and firmer. Wrinkles will therefore start to fade or even disappear, and the sagged skin will tighten and regain fullness by itself.

Frequency & Duration of recovery and results
Within 1 to 3 weeks, the rejuvenation of the skin will become visible. For optimal results, we advise patients to repeat the treatment twice after the first time; leaving 2-3 weeks between each treatment. This result will last approximately six months.

Peels

peelings
During a facial peel, the upper skin layers are removed to induce the production of collagen, which will rejuvenate and improve the skin. There are many different types of peels, varying from superficial to very deep penetration, used for all different skin conditions. During this treatment, a chemical solution containing active components is applied to the face, causing the upper skin layers to peel off. As a result, the skin will renew itself by producing new skin layers and collagen. After recovery, the skin will look fresher and smoother and fine lines will have faded or completely disappeared.

Duration of recovery and results
Immediately after treatment, an improvement of the skin is already visible, but the production process of new skin layers and collagen can take up to one month. The length of time that the results remain visible depends entirely on the used product. Don’t hesitate to inquire about the specific details that apply to you.

Skin boosters

Skin boosters
A skin booster treatment is meant to let the ageing skin renew itself naturally. This automatic renewal is achieved by injecting the natural substance hyaluronic acid into miniature reserves under the skin. This method causes the skin to stay hydrated continuously, giving it a long-lasting glow. The skin becomes fuller, firmer and fine lines, wrinkles and irregularities will reduce considerably or disappear entirely.

Duration of recovery and results
Two weeks after the skin booster treatment, you will start to see results. The optimal result is visible after approximately six weeks. The effects can last a long time, on average from 2 to 15 months.
