One of the most reliable signs of aged skin is an increase in the number and depth of wrinkles. Wrinkles can be divided into two functional categories: fine surface lines (caused by ultraviolet light) and deep furrows (caused by muscle contraction).



  • Botulinum toxin

Botulinum toxin wrinkle relaxing injections is targeted for the points where muscle relaxation is desirable, and will involve a variable number of small injections. The level of discomfort associated with the treatment is low, but it is also possible to control it even more by applying local anaesthetic cream to the treatment area as 30 minutes prior to the intervention.



  • Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are used as an effective treatment for deep lines and wrinkles. They can help reduce deep lines and wrinkles, fill hollows and smooth the contours of your face. Anti-ageing facial fillers are the non-surgical way to achieve younger looking skin and provide volume for tired lines and wrinkles. You can enhance your lips appearance, change shape of your nose, improve your cheekbones when necessary.

As your skin ages, it loses the collagen that helps shape and support it. Natural lines and wrinkles deepen. Sun exposure, smoking, air pollution and even stress can all age your appearance. The face can also begin to lose volume giving sunken cheeks and a ‘dragged down’ appearance.

  • Carboxy

Carboxytherapy refers to the cutaneous and subcutaneous injection of carbon dioxide gas  Carboxytherapy was originated in 1932 in France with the treatment of patients afflicted by peripheral arterial occlusive disease.

In Europe, CO2 therapy has been applied to the treatment of stretch marks, cellulite, and hypertrophic scars with impressive results.

Carboxytherapy improves skin elasticity, improves circulation, encourages collagen repair, improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and destroys localized fatty deposits. Carbon dioxide is a natural constituent of our very being. We breathe in oxygen, and we exhale carbon dioxide. Plants take up the carbon dioxide, and in turn give us the oxygen that we need. There are no known risks associated with carboxytherapy.



  • Mesotherapy

Mesotherapy is a series of injections  of pharmaceutical and homeopathic medications, plant extracts, vitamins, and other ingredients that are intended to break up localized fat deposits, reduce the appearance of cellulite, and tighten sagging skin, rejuvenate the skin, or improve EGF  especially on the face and body.



  • PDO

PDO threads are very latest technology for soft, natural-looking skin lifting in a non-invasive procedure. The PDO thread lift is designed for effective facial rejuvenation without surgery, which means less downtime at lower cost with lower risk and minimal aftercare following treatment.

The procedure is performed by qualified doctors to reverse the key effects of ageing such as wrinkles, saggy skin, deep creases, folds and poor skin texture. It can improve the profile of a flabby face, raise cheeks or eyebrows, help to prevent eye bags and laughter lines, lift sagging neck skin, raise the smile and angle of the mouth and even tackle smokers lines.

Rather than thinking of it as a semi-surgical thread lift, PDO threads act more like a dermal filler, but leaving a thread in the skin instead of an injectable solution.
