Facial Resurfacing

Skin resurfacing can be achieved by means of

  -chemicals (chemical peels),

  -mechanical procedures  (microdermabrasion, dermabrasion)

  -or through the use of heat (lasers).

It consists of removing a variable amount of superficial skin layers that then has to regenerate during the wounding phase. Skin resurfacing can have varying effects on deeper skin layers, like increase production of collagen, depending on the wounding mechanism.

BEFORE RESURFACING: SKIN PRE-CONDITIONING

Before a resurfacing procedure skin pre-conditioning may be recommended to help

-avoid excessive melanin production after wounding,

-optimize wounding results and promote faster healing after treatment.

-accelerate wound healing,

-evaluate skin tolerance and treatment compliance of patients

-detect allergies and measure skin tolerance

Skin conditioning consists of sun protection + retinoids or alphahydroxy acids for more even penetration of the chemical peel + a skin bleaching agent to minimize pigmentation problems + an antiviral to prevent herpetic outbreaks.

The start date depends on your skin type and the intended injury.

NEW SKIN FORMATION

After controlled injury to your skin with a resurfacing procedures, new skin forms. Some signs are expected side effects after skin resurfacing procedures and are not considered complications, such as:

1.      transient erythema and flushing,

2.      increased temperature,

3.      pruritus,

4.      oedema,

5.      milia and acne

Facial Rejuvenation

Each aging face requires an individual recipe. Many are not stand-alone procedures and the association of different treatments often have a synergistic and not additive effects.

5 BIG TARGETS AND LEVEL OF FACIAL REJUVENATION

1. skin texture,
2. pigmentation,
3. tonicity and tightness,
4. wrinkling and
5. facial contour

 

Signs of aging in different layers from superficial to deep impact perceived age differently:

•       With epidermal changes perceived age is only minimally impacted

•       With dermal changes: perceived age is considerably impacted

•       With deep tissue and contour changes perceived age is dramatically impacted

EPIDERMAL (SUPERFICIAL) REJUVENATION

  • SUN SPOTS

  • VESSELS

  • SKIN LESIONS

  • SKIN TEXTURE

  • SKIN COLOR

The goal is to treat sun and aging spots, get a better skin texture and stimulate epidermal turnover.

DERMAL (MIDDLE LAYER) REJUVENATION

  • WRINKLES

  • DECREASED COLLAGEN AND ELASTIN

The goal is to stimulate collagen production and dermal remodeling

DEEP LAYER REJUVENATION

  • LOSS OF VOLUME AND TISSUES (DEPENDING ON AREA FAT, MUSCLE OR BONE)

  • REDISTRIBUTION OF FAT

  • SEGMENTATION OF THE FACE

  • SKIN LAXITY

  • FOLDS

The goal is to treat skin laxity, replace volume and tissue loss, fight muscle contractions when unwanted and to reposition tissues.

MINIMALLY-INVASIVE REJUVENATION

Consists in the of botulinum toxin, fillers for volume restoration, skin resurfacing procedures, tissue tightening with energy-based devices and skin care. 

FACIAL REJUVENATION SURGERY

There are many options, often some of these procedures are combined:

  • facelift

  • minilift

  • neck lift, neck liposuction

  • eye rejuvenation

  • browlift and forehead lift

  • fat grafting and volume restoration

  • ear lobe rejuvenation

  • lip lift

  • facial implants

Facial Remodeling

One can harmonise your features and reveal your beauty, whether by reducing the signs of time erosion or by correcting small misfortunes of nature.

During your specialised face consultation the expertise of a facial plastic surgeon dedicated to the face and a makeup artist, will define the most suitable project, according to your wishes and your anatomy. We will analyse your facial morphology, your skin, your photographs and when necessary, we will do 3D morphing.

 

The face is a very complex structure. If the human brain developed a dedicated visual recognition area for the face, it is not merely due to chance. Cosmetic surgery of the face requires a truly multidisciplinary approach, a broad experience and a deep mastery of the latest technologies. It is only under these conditions that we can offer you treatments respecting your personality and totally natural results, with safety conditions protecting you from serious or irreversible complications.

 

We use very advanced integrated facial remodelling procedures. Based on the integrated aesthetic analysis of your face, our innovative approach combines the mastery of the surgical anatomy of the facial plastic surgeon and the visual aesthetic knowledge of an experienced make up artist.Totally personalised corrections are obtained, by remodelling in in combination with hyaluronic acid , when necessary, with other absorbable components (botulinum toxin / Botox®, Xeomine®, etc., calcium hydroxyapatit / Radiesse®,). Lipofilling (fat transplantation, lipostructure) or surgical procedures can also be implemented to offer you the best results.

Facial Feminization

The goal of facial feminization is to lessen masculine features of the face to a more feminine appearance.

Facial feminization can be done with injectables, botulinum toxin or surgery performed as either a single procedure or as multiple staged procedures.

 

Facial Masculinization

The goal of facial masculinization is to lessen feminine features of the face to a more masculine appearance.

Facial masculinization can be done with injectables, botulinum toxin or surgery performed as either a single procedure or as multiple staged procedures.

Surgical manipulation of the bone and soft tissues of the face create a masculine appearance.

Facial Contouring

Change in facial shape can be achieved with

  -Cheek implants

  -Chin reduction

  -Chin augmentation

  -Fat grafting and fillers

  -Facial liposuction

  -Buccal fat pad reduction

Facial Revitalization

Refresh and Revitalize the Skin. Our skin covers us, protects us and reveals us, all at once.

The structure of this complex organ varies considerably between all different regions of the body.

Skin damage, in particular by the sun, will be most severe on sun-exposed areas.

 

Between the currently available regenerative techniques, the choice will depend on the location and on the nature of skin damage.

 

And, of course, a healthy lifestyle will optimise all these treatments.

Superficial Chemical Peels

Superficial chemical peels can help refresh the look, give uniformity to the skin color, treat skin spots and help stimulate the skins regenerative capacity.

Keratotherapy

Keratothérapie® allows us to rebalance and restore dull and dehydrated skin.

JetPeel

Aquabiojet® exported from aeronautical technologies allows us to penetrate natural products in your dermis without any discomfort or side effects.

Energy-based Devices

The heat energy deposited in the skin by radio frequency enables to stimulate regeneration and collagen synthesis.

Dermal Microneedling

Collagen induction therapy with a dermaroller can help thicken the skin by stimulating collagen production.
