HIFU to wysokoenergetyczna, zogniskowana fala ultradźwiękowa o dużym natężeniu (HIFU z ang. High Intensity Focused Ultrasound). Dotychczas była to metoda stosowana w medycynie chorych, została zaimplantowana i dostosowana do potrzeb estetycznych.
Na potrzeby medycyny estetycznej powstało już kilka urządzeń do wykonywania zabiegów odmładzania za pomocą HIFU. Najnowszym z nich jest urządzenie UltraSkin II, dedykowane wszystkim, którzy wymagają poprawy kondycji skóry i oczekują efektu liftingu.
Technologia polega na kontrolowanym, zogniskowanym umieszczeniu wiązki fal ultradźwiękowych na określonej głębokości. Fale przechodzą przez naskórek i kumulują się w jednym punkcie, wewnątrz skóry, lub w tkance podskórnej, powodując drganie komórek, które w wyniku tarcia silnie się rozgrzewają. Włókna kolagenowe skracają się i zostaje zainicjowany proces regeneracji, czyli tworzenia przez fibroblasty nowych włókien kolagenowych. W wyniku tego skóra staje się bardziej napięta i sprężysta.
W zależności od wybranej głębokości penetracji fal, uzyskujemy różne efekty. Dla efektu liftingu – lekarz stosuje koagulację na najgłębszej „warstwie”, czyli na głębokości 4,5 mm (warstwa mięśniowo-powięziowa). Na tej samej warstwie pracują chirurdzy plastycy wykonując tradycyjny lifting operacyjny.
Koagulacja na głębokości 3 i 1,5 mm pozwala poprawić kondycję skóry właściwej.
In the Healthy Skin Centre we only offer you tried-and-tested dermocosmetics and supplements. We have the honour to cooperate with leading companies with long-term experience in the market. Therefore, all our products are appropriately tested.
Derma.cosmetics is a line of products for skin care, offering a full range of hi-tech solutions intended mainly for the so-called difficult skins to prevent the process of premature ageing of the skin and minimise its consequences. All the products are developed for their dermatological properties and demonstrate very high efficiency. Many of these products are real innovations on the cosmetic market, with some being market benchmarks, e.g. BLEMISH BALM – a product developed almost 50 years ago, which has been constantly improved over the years and which still is an unequalled precursor of all the BB creams in the world.
The main purpose of the derma.cosmetics series is the possibility of customising the innovative products to the specific skin problems of each individual patient. It is also important to remember about the prevention of potential skin disorders. The motto reading “dermatology supports cosmetics” has always been the fundamental part of this series. Therefore, the derma.cosmetics series is among the latest achievements in medicine combined with the selection of top-quality ingredients.
The IMAGE Skincare products were developed on the basis of scientific achievements in dermatology, aesthetic medicine and cosmetology. The brand was created by Mrs Janna Ronert and her husband, Mr Marc Ronert. The IMAGE Skincare laboratory is situated in Palm Beach, Florida.
The IMAGE Skincare brand has been at the forefront of the most effective American cosmeceutical products. Their primary task has been to reduce wrinkles, repair UV-radiation injuries, maintain optimum moisturisation and stimulate epidermal regeneration processes.
The IMAGE Skincare preparations are free of parabens, silicones, colourants and additional fragrances.
IMAGE Skincare offers a wide array of products: professional preparations for treatments at cosmetic surgeries (chemical peelings and conditioning agents which deserve particular attention) and products intended for retail sale.
All the hyaluronic acid products presented below are produced by companies with vast experience and therefore they are well-tested and safe. It is always important to pay attention to what is injected into the face – the quality of the product, medical certificates and the price of the treatment.
The Neauvia Organic line offers three unique products which are designed to fill tissue defects, stimulate collagen production and improve the skin’s moisturisation, flexibility and elasticity. These products guarantee natural appearance while minimising the risk of adverse events.
Neauvia Organic was developed from hyaluronic acid produced by the non-pathogenic strain of Bacillus subtilis, with the aim to increase the safety of treatments in a broad range of applications and avoid reactive responses caused by protein residues.
Harmony XL is a versatile platform designed for aesthetic treatments. By combining several advanced technologies, Alma Harmony is effective against a full spectrum of aesthetic problems, and its efficiency has been confirmed by clinical trials. It incorporates technologies based on laser, light and ultrasound, as well as 28 different applicator heads.
The device is equipped with five heads:
Removal of both superficial and deep vascular changes on the whole body, including tiny blood vessels on the face, ruby blood vessels and varicose veins – Laser Nd:YAG. Its head is equipped with an epidermis cooling system which relieves the pain experienced during the procedure, protects against burning and enhances the treatment comfort.
Removal of dilated capillary vessels and angiomas, acne rosacea, erythemas and discolorations, including those caused by the sun and resulting from hormonal changes, medicines or diseases – Dye-VL. The application of a narrow-band, pulsating source of light reduces the risk of adverse events and makes the procedure safe, effective and practically pain-free.
Removal of scars, stretch marks, wrinkles and furrows – iPixel ER. Unlike traditional lasers, the iPixel ER module helps to conduct the procedure with high efficiency and in significantly less time. Moreover, it facilitates the healing of the treated area and leads to collagen reconstruction.
Ablative and non-ablative fractional resurfacing of the skin as well as smoothing and regenerating its surface – ClearLift. The treatment leaves your skin healthier and rejuvenated, and its effects are similar to those of strong chemical peeling or laser resurfacing. Besides slight reddening, there are no side effects, which makes the treatment the most effective solution for sensitive body parts, such as hands, neck, chest and eye area.
Removal of unwanted hairs from the face and body – SHR Super Hair Removal. The head is effective on all skin phototypes, including suntanned skin. The treatment is pain-free and can be compared to paining on the patient’s skin by means of an operative head which, apart from generating lower energy, provides additional cooling effect on the epidermis. All this allows us to comfortably perform any treatment, including one for more sensitive areas.
The effects that can be achieved through the platform include: reduced visibility of dilated capillaries, reduction of erythemas, acne and solar discolorations, skin rejuvenation, removal of wrinkles, reduction of scars, stretch marks and superfluous hairs, and removal of tattoos.
Harmony XL Dye-VL / Dye-SVL – the first narrow-band, pulsating source of IPL, which has been evaluated by leading physicians in the field of aesthetic medicine in the world as one of the most advanced technologies for removing vascular lesions and skin discolorations.
The new Dye-VL uses a series of three filters, concentrating the light within one range. This unprecedented technology for effective treatment of vascular skin disorders guarantees safety and efficiency. Thanks to light emissions ranging from 500 to 600 nm, the skin’s exposure to other light wavelengths is minimised, while the energy is transferred selectively, being directed on chromophores, such as haemoglobin (erythrocyte pigment) and partially melanin (skin pigment). As a result, the procedure becomes safer and more effective, posing a lower risk of side effects compared to other systems on the aesthetic medicine market.
The new solution offered by Dye-VL is a combination of laser and IPL features, merging high impulse energy and short exposure time, thus eliminating the risk and increasing efficiency of the existing IPL devices that emit broad-spectrum light. A novelty in IPL-based treatments is the dynamic form of skin radiation.
Depending on the individual needs and sensitivity of the patient, the procedure can be performed in two modes: dynamic and static (classic). Such a solution eliminates the risk of inaccurate skin coverage and decreases the patient’s discomfort during treatment. The treatment is practically painless and the selective action of light protects the skin against uncontrolled damage.
The cutting-edge device for carboxytherapy by MBE Medical Division – an Italian company and the world’s leading medical equipment manufacturer. The Venusian CO2 Therapy guarantees maximum comfort and safety of the procedure.
The device is used for performing carboxytherapy, a long known and appreciated treatment method for cellulite, excessive fat, stretch marks, scars, skin ageing, flaccidity, “bags” under the eyes, hard-healing wounds and hand rejuvenation.
The benefits of Venusian CO2 Therapy:
Endermologia Cellu M6 Integral is a versatile device for body and face treatments.
It provides all the opportunities of using the Lipomassage and Endermolift techniques in aesthetic, therapeutic and sports procedures. Endermolift, or a treatment for the face, is a unique method that strengthens the skin of the face, neck, neckline and bust in a non-invasive manner by stimulating cells to produce collagen and elastin. These most sensitive parts of the body are subjected to rhythmical movements of mobile, magnetic flaps supported by controlled negative pressure.
The effects of Endermolift :
This treatment is particularly indicated for individuals with a considerable amount of fat tissue and visible cellulite. It is also used in patients with loose skin who require muscle strengthening. Endermologie treatments increase the metabolic rate and activate the lymphatic circulation process. Not only do they have a clearly stimulating effect on the venous and lymphatic system, but they also boost cellular replacement. The massage eliminates toxins accumulated in the body and reduces water retention.
OxyGeneo is an innovative technology by Pollogen, used for optimum exfoliation and clearing of the skin’s external layer, increasing the natural oxygenation of skin cells from the inside and ensuring infusion of valuable skin revitalisers.
The advantages of OxyGeneo procedures:
NEOREVIVE – skin nourishment. Treatment designed for mature skin:
Thanks to the patented technology of pulsating needles, DERMAPEN™ is safer and more effective than the methods of skin micropuncture known so far.
The replaceable, disposable cartridges are equipped with twelve 33G molybdenum needles, which contain neither chromium nor nickel, thus making the treatment suitable also for people allergic to those metals. Thanks to this solution, the needles in DERMAPEN™ are extremely thin and durable, which greatly enhances the patient’s comfort during treatment. The AOVN™ (Advanced Oscillating Vertical Needling) technology and an incredibly effective motor allow the needles to perform 1300 punctures per second. Such performance is unattainable for any other device.
Precisely adjusted injection depth (from 0.5 mm to 2.5 mm) allows full control of the treatment performed – in contrast to dermarollers and mesotherapy performed with a syringe and a needle. Thanks to the patented technology of pulsating needles, DERMAPEN™ is safer and more effective than the methods of skin micropuncture known to date. The treatment performed using DERMAPEN® considerably reduces the time of recovery and the patients’ return to their daily activities.
DERMAPEN™ boosts the skin’s regenerative processes, thereby stimulating its regeneration in a natural way.
DERMAPEN™ is an extremely versatile tool which offers the possibility of performing treatments on the whole face, neck, neckline, abdomen, thighs, buttocks or scalp. Its compact size makes it possible to perform treatments on the most inaccessible areas such as the eye or lip areas.
With the system of pulsating needles that facilitate the administration of active substances to the epidermis and dermis, DERMAPEN™ guarantees unparalleled stimulation of fibroblasts. The resulting micro-injuries use the body’s natural abilities and congenital capacity to regenerate the skin into physiological collagen induction.
The function of automatic skin puncture applied in DERMAPEN™ enhances treatment efficiency by increasing the degree of active substance penetration into the skin, thereby minimising the pain and discomfort for patients. The needles are sterile and disposable, which reduces the risk of cross infections.
Dermalux, which was awarded the “The AestheticAwards 2014” prize, is a state-of-the-art device for phototherapy based on LED technology. Dermalux ensures non-invasive treatment of skin diseases, has a positive effect on complexion, reduces the signs of ageing and positively impacts the patient’s general health.
The latest LED technology guarantees a therapy which is safe, painless, relaxing and comfortable for the patient, using selected wavelengths of light – red, near infrared and blue. The appropriate combination of LED light sources, the device can be used in the treatment of many skin diseases and other health problems. Regular treatments with Dermalux guarantee visible and lasting effects.
This device allows for early detection of skin cancers thanks to body mapping. It can scan the skin’s surface on the whole body in less than 10 minutes. Using the procedures developed by the producer, we take a series of scans in a quick and easy manner in order to interpret the results by means of a suitable programme.
The FotoFinder Bodystudio Complete videodermatoscope is an ideal solution to examine the surface of the skin and identify lesions on the whole body. Comparing the initial scans with the scans obtained at successive intervals makes it possible to effectively and reliably assess and monitor the potential development of a disease. Suspected lesions can be marked on the clinical image, which makes it easier to observe them with the FotoFinder videodermoscope. The functionalities of the software and the equipment, including special tripods and laser indicators for positioning the patient, make it possible to document the skin’s surface in a uniform manner. This way, we are able to detect skin neoplasms in their early stage, also in high-risk patients
Electrocoagulation using the Emed es 120 device is a comprehensive treatment based on the properties of electric current. It allows for non-invasive and completely safe removal of dilated capillaries, warts, cysts, milia or fibromas. This method is also used for removing superfluous hairs when other methods, such as light therapy, prove to be ineffective.
When the skin is diagnosed using ultrasonography, we are able to assess its current condition by referring the image of a given patient’s skin to an image of a healthy skin. In this regard, the necessary information is obtained by analysing the image of epidermis and dermis. In the case of the epidermis, we primarily observe its structure and thickness. Ultrasonography is an irreplaceable tool for assessing the skin’s condition related to the natural ageing and photo-ageing. With age and as a result of solar radiation exposure, ultrasound images, especially of the facial skin, begin to show a characteristic dark band immediately under the epidermis. It is the so-called SLEB (subepidermal low echogenic band), which can be regarded as a marker of skin damage. The thicker the SLEB is, the worst condition the skin is in. The aim of all the therapies in aesthetic medicine and cosmetology is to decrease the SLEB thickness. By making an ultrasound-based diagnosis of the skin, we can also analyse scars, post-acne marks and other skin lesions. Skin ultrasound also turns out to be irreplaceable in diagnosing cellulite. It can reasonably be concluded that ultrasound is useful for monitoring the effects of all the procedures used in the field of cosmetology and aesthetic medicine. It is applied in the efficiency analysis of both cosmetological treatments (e.g. moisturising procedures, microdermabrasion, superficial peelings, machine-based body therapies or anti-cellulite treatments) and medical treatments, i.e. mesotherapy, fillers, botulinum toxin, laser treatments including resurfacing, scar removal and closure of tiny blood vessels). In the case of medical procedures, the possibility of “looking deeply under the skin” offered by ultrasound helps us eliminate such complications as haematomas and prevent preparations from being administered into an improper area or into a blood vessel. Moreover, recent years have seen the emergence of certain treatments which would be impossible to conduct without ultrasound monitoring.
We strive to be reliable and therefore we have purchased a device for morphological examination in procedures using platelet-rich plasma.
Each procedure which uses platelet-rich plasma is preceded by a blood count analysis.
We also test the number of platelets in the plasma to be administered.
Within just one minute we obtain the result with 18 parameters of the peripheral blood cell count.
ENTONOX is a well-tried and effective pain therapy.
ENTONOX® is a ready-to-use mixture of gases composed of 50% of nitrous oxide and 50% of oxygen. Its balanced proportions of nitrous oxide/oxygen provides good oxygenation and minimises the risk of excessive sedation. It works fast, allows for self-adjustment and is quickly expelled from the body after inhalation has ceased.
The analgesic and sedative actions of the pre-treated mixture of nitrous oxide/oxygen have been well documented. Its analgesic and anti-anxiety properties have been proved to overcome patients’ anxieties before painful treatments, ranging from serious injuries and dressing of fractures to labour. Nitrous oxide reduces the level of pain that the patients experience. ENTONOX® is quick and effective – pain alleviation begins shortly after administration – and its effects quickly fade away.
In the Healthy Skin Centre we only use tried-and-tested exfoliation (peeling) therapies.
We offer both chemical and herbal peelings. The type and frequency of the peeling treatment is chosen by a physician, depending on the skin’s condition.
