One session includes a follow-up appointment, and the treatment should be expected to last up to one year. This treatment is suited to being done once a year in early summer.

Some treatment areas include cheeks, temples, tear troughs (under eye volume loss). nasolabial folds, marionette lines, perioral lines (smokers’ lines). Lips, pre-jowl sulcus, jaw, chin, earlobes.

R4000 (per I ml syringe)

 

Profhilo remodelling

Profhilo is a hyaluronic acid gel designed to boost skin hydration and improve elasticity and can be used to treat skin laxity in faces and necks. The gel is the consistency of honey, and once injected, it spreads superficially through the skin to stimulate your body’s own production of collagen and elastin.

 

The recommended protocol is two treatments one month apart, but a third can be added in severe cases. A total of 2ml of the Profhilo filler is injected per area, per treatment. Treatments can then be maintained on a 6 -12 monthly basis. 

 

It is a very safe procedure with very few and only minor adverse events. The recommended protocol advises the use of a hyaluronic acid antioxidant cream which prolongs and enhances the effect of the treatment. The Haenkenium aftercare cream (worth R600) is included in the price of each treatment.

Bionutrilift

Bionutrilift is an excellent duo of two treatments, which work effectively in the fight against signs of ageing. It nourishes and restores hydration and glow to the skin and lifts the face, thanks to the synergistic use of two products, NCTF and ART FILLER, FINE LINES.

 

NCTF is rich in hyaluronic acid and contains 59 skin stimulating and anti-ageing ingredients. This truly revolutionary technique provides multi-level hydration of all layers of the skin and epidermis.

It provides a long-lasting lifting effect of between 12 and 18 months, revitalises the skin, stimulates the production of collagen and elastin fibres and smoothes out small wrinkles.

It is a great preventive treatment that prolongs the young and healthy appearance of the skin.

Plasma Skin Tightening

(with the Plasmatek Wireless)

 

Ablative Technique

The tip of our superior plasma device is placed just above the skin ionising gases in the air, and creates a small electric arc which is delivered to the epidermis (top layer of skin). It does this without causing any damage to surrounding tissue. Skin cells are removed by sublimation (evaporation) and fibroblast cells in the skin are stimulated to produce new collagen. The targeted skin contracts and is essentially eliminated without any cutting, which results in the tightening and shrinking of the targeted skin. It is truly one of the best non-surgical options for skin tightening. This advanced procedure helps to revive natural levels of collagen, hyaluronic acid and fibronectin needed for fresh youthful skin.

Non-Ablative Technique

The non-invasive skin tightening option uses an electromagnetic pulse. This is a perfect summer treatment, safe for all skin types with zero down-time, and immediate results!

Elecromagnetic pulse technology allows for 100% pain free skin tightening and can be done even an hour before an event with visible results immediately. The electro-magnetic pulse heats the epidermis and the dermis resulting in an immediate yet mild tissue swelling which flattens out wrinkles and tightens skin.
