Balneophototherapy

The Balneophototherapy is a possibility of treatment of the eczema. It is the clinical conversion of the therapy by the dead sea.
The combined UVA/UVB irradiation occurs after a bath in the Softpack® system with brine.

Bath-PUVA

Is a combination treatment against psoriasis, neurodermatitis and vitiligo with the curative effect of a UVA therapy by a bath in a herbal substance called "psoralene".

Blepharoplastics

It is the medical expression for an eyelid rationalisation. Sometimes the field of vision of the patient can be limited due to heavy eyelids. Then with the eyelid rationalisation the eyelids are shortened surgically causing a younger appearance.

Body shaping

Even if sport and good nutrition are an inherent part of life, there can be stubborn problem areas which cannot be reduced on their own. That is why we take care of that in our Derma-Clinic, for instance with the help of laser liposuction, VelaSmooth Pro™, “fat-away-injection” (injection lipolysis) and liposuction.

BodyTite™

The new BodyTite™ (Invasix) procedure is a minimally invasive procedure that utilizes radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL™) to achieve effective body shaping as well as significant skin tightening. BodyTite™ combines liposuction and tissue tightening in a particularly gentle and careful manner, and thereby achieves, fast, safe, consistent and lasting results.
The radiofrequency energy moves from a small, internal electrode to a larger, external electrode and brings about a gentle, consistent heating and coagulation of fat and tissue. This heating, which precedes the liposuction, makes the BodyTite™ procedure particularly gentle and almost free of swelling and pain. The coagulated and liquefied tissue is aspirated through the internal electrode of the handpiece, whereby the heating leads to effective body shaping and skin tightening at the same time. The temperature of the fatty tissue reached always remains in the safe range due to constant checking. So with respect to other laser-assisted liposuction methods, BodyTite™ enables gentler ambulant treatment with greater safety and effectiveness. The intervention time is up to 4 times faster due to the simultaneous suction and coagulation.
The procedure’s main areas of application are the abdomen, hips, buttocks, back, inside and outside of the thighs (‘saddlebags’), upper arm, neck (double chin) and lipedemas of the lower leg. Very good results in the treatment of cellulite as well as tissue tightening after weight reduction can also be achieved with BodyTite™. Moreover, the procedure is suitable for combination treatments in the course of abdominal wall lifts (‘tummy tucks’) and mini facelifts.

Botulinumtoxin

Is a substance which is used after many years' application in other departments of medicine (neurology, etc.) now also in the area of the aesthetics. It prevents tensing of muscle parts which generate facial wrinkles.
