Facial Fillers

If the skin on your face has lost its firmness and fullness or you have deep wrinkles or a facial scar, facial fillers (otherwise known as dermal fillers) could be for you.

Various fillers are available on the market today, the most popular of which are made of hyaluronic acid which is a substance that occurs naturally in the skin. Hyaluronic acid based fillers add moisture and structure to the skin therefore supporting and moisturising it from the inside. The result of the process is a fresher, more youthful look.

Fillers are injected into the face to smooth wrinkles and folds (especially around the nose and mouth). It is also used to plump out scars or dents in the face and to define and enhance lips, reshape the nose, or define and plump out cheeks.

Fillers are an ideal treatment for instantly enhancing your looks in a completely natural way. You’ll see the results instantly and the effect will typically last six months to over a year. The length of time of treatment lasts is specific to each individual and the area treated.

Radiesse

Radiesse instantly restores facial volume to smooth out the signs of aging; it keeps working with your body by stimulating your own natural collagen for long-lasting results in many patients.

Radiesse is a safe, cosmetic dermal filler that is setting a new standard for the correction of facial lines and wrinkles. It works below the skin’s surface – tiny calcium-based microspheres form a ‘scaffold’ to support and stimulate the growth of your own collagen to create a natural, full, youthful look.

It does more than just temporarily fill-in facial lines and wrinkles, it rebuilds your skin’s foundation. Over time, your body absorbs the gel carrier while collagen has started to grow and infiltrate the area, replacing the gel with your own, natural tissue.

The results are immediate and Radiesse continues to deliver results as it works with your body to stimulate new collagen and regenerate tissue. Results typically last a year or more.

Anti-wrinkle injections

As we age, collagen production slows down. Our skin becomes less elastic and repeated muscle frowning may create visible lines and wrinkles. These wrinkles are caused by overactive muscle movement which gradually wear away the collagen in the skin, causing the skin to crease and wrinkles to appear.

Anti-wrinkle injections reduce the wrinkles on your face and take years off your appearance. They are now one of the most widely used and most successful non surgical cosmetic treatments in the world. In the skilled hands of Dr Habib, these injections can give a very natural youthful appearance, removing a wide range of lines and wrinkles safely.

The treatment involves injections with a fine needle into the appropriate area. This can cause a brief stinging sensation. The discomfort is so mild that anaesthesia is not required. There is generally no recovery period. You can go directly back to your normal activities. The majority of treatment lasts for 3-6 months.  .

Fractora

Fractora uses radiofrequency energy to stimulate the skin’s production of elastin and collagen. It works by combining ablation (precise removal of surface cells) with micro punctures. The result combines the benefits of two popular skin treatments: laser resurfacing and dermal rolling. It is an effective procedure to slow the effects of aging and restore your skin, so you can look and feel younger.

While there are other fractional resurfacing options available, most help to improve only one or two symptoms of aging skin, Fractora achieves amazing results for the broadest range of symptoms for aging skin, all in one treatment leaving you looking radiant. Fractora targets fine or deep wrinkles, texture, acne scars, or discoloured red and brown skin tone to produce skin that looks firmer and healthier. It is particularly excellent for acne scarring and stretch marks and provides immediate improvements, with typical results visible within two weeks.

During treatment your body’s temperature levels are constantly monitored, this provides safe and accurate feedback of your skin temperature and comfort levels.

How soon will I see results?
Patients will typically see immediate results. However, to achieve the best results, a patient will typically require several sessions, usually performed on a weekly basis for 6-8 weeks (depending on the patient’s needs).

Dracula Therapy PRP

Widely known as the ‘Vampire Facelift’, Platelet Rich Plasma therapy is a breakthrough in filler technology and popular with the Hollywood A list due to its amazing results.

The technique takes the person’s own blood and uses it to rejuvenate their appearance. The procedure helps restore and enhance areas requiring volume and can be used for acne scarring and deep fold wrinkles. Made from your own blood with no toxins, chemicals or foreign bodies within the prepared PRP, it one of the safest treatments that can be offered to you – as there’s no risk of rejection.

Platelet Rich Plasma has been safely and successfully used in medicine for many years by specialists in fields such as orthopaedics, dentistry, surgery and ophthalmology.

This technique uses the body’s own healing mechanisms to improve the appearance of ageing skin. The client’s own blood is drawn off, just as for a blood test. This is processed in a centrifuge to provide a sample of plasma rich in platelets (blood cells). These are injected back into the treatment area to boost natural tissue healing in areas of fine lines, wrinkles, and age related skin damage. Local anaesthetic cream can be used if required. The substances found in this portion of blood promote soft tissue repair to smooth line and plump the skin.

PRP Therapy for anti-aging takes advantage of the wound healing properties of the platelets and the associated growth factors inducing cell regeneration and repair along with enhanced collagen production.

 

Mesotherapy

Mesotherapy is a natural cosmetic treatment which helps rejuvenate the skin in many parts of the body, including the face, neck and legs.

The treatment involves the use of fine injections to stimulate the body’s own production of collagen, enabling the collagen to work more effectively. This leads to an improvement in skin tone and elasticity, revitalising tissues and allowing the skin to become more hydrated.

Unlike other cosmetic treatments, Mesotherapy is completely natural. It can be particularly effective when combined with lifestyle advice to aid the detoxification of the body. The technique is suitable for use on the face and many other parts of the body where it can reduce fat deposits and cellulite.

Patients generally notice an improvement in their skin tone within days of their first treatment. The effect will last for as long as you continue to have regular follow up sessions after the main course of injections ends.

 

Soprano Lite

Soprano is almost pain free approach to laser hair removal and more importantly, unlike many other laser treatments, it’s suited to pretty much every skin type and skin tone.

How does it work?

The Soprano laser hair removal treatment works by safely and gently heating the dermis to a temperature that effectively damages the hair follicle and prevents re-growth, yet does not injure the surrounding skin.

What will happen during my appointment?

Before booking in for a course of treatment, all patients must undergo a consultation and patch test. During the consultation, the treatment is fully explained and the therapist will advise the best course of action for each client. Before individual sessions, you’ll need to have shaved the target area for treatment so that the therapist can get to work straight away. After applying a thick cold gel and giving you a pair of safety glasses to wear, the laser is then passed over the area numerous times.

How many treatments will I need?

There are a number of factors that can affect the success of a series of treatments, but generally, after each treatment you will notice a reduction in the number of hairs that re-grow in the treatment area. You will need an average of 6 treatments or possibly more to achieve permanent hair reduction.

Will my hair ever grow back?

The short answer is no. Once the hair follicle is damaged, it cannot re-grow. However, there are invariably a few hair follicles that manage to escape the laser during each treatment. Some of these hairs may need to be re treated.

Will it hurt?

Not at all! Most people find painless laser hair removal very comfortable. While pain tolerance varies from client to client, many patients often describe the sensation as soothing as a ’hot stone massage’.

Osmosis Skin Care

Bella Clinic exclusively stocks the world famous ‘miracle’ Osmosis Skin Care range.

Osmosis Skin Care carries a complete line of skin care products, cosmetics, and wellness products that are chemical free. The company’s mission is to provide customers with a full range of skin and beauty solutions that enhance the appearance of aging skin and fight the effects of harsh commercial chemicals. Osmosis Skin Care carries products that address collagen loss, scarring, and sun damage

The products are safe to use on even the most sensitive skin because they are non-inflammatory and avoid ingredients that weaken and inflame the skin. Most skincare companies struggle to get adequate penetration (2-5% on average) and fail to address the lack of skin nutrition needed to feed the repair process. Osmosis aims to increase cell turnover through natural exfoliation. Instead of removing the protective epidermal barrier, it feeds and stimulates the skin to increase cell renewal without damaging the epidermis. Osmosis uses 8+ liposome-coated collagen/elastin stimulators that are only made in the dermis to make real changes in the deep layers in your skin where aging occurs.
Osmosis has a wide range of skin care products, such as serums, facial moisturisers, and facial cleansers.
Excimer 308

Dr Gehane Habib is dedicated to finding the most advanced treatments for the treatment of Eczema, Psoriasis and Vitiligo and recommends the Excimer 308 Laser. This is a safe, effective, no-downtime procedure and could be perfect to help you.

How does the Excimer 308 Laser work?
When treating psoriasis, a concentrated, but painless, beam of ultraviolet light is delivered to psoriatic lesions through a hand piece that rests directly on the skin. By precisely targeting only active lesions without exposing healthy skin, the laser safely delivers high-dose treatment for fast clearing and long remission. Excimer lasers can also treat vitiligo more effectively, safely, and conveniently than topical creams, UVB booths, or PUVA.

Is laser therapy right for you?
The laser is ideal for treating mild to moderate eczema, psoriasis and vitiligo. Traditionally hard-to-treat areas such as knees, elbows, and scalp are easily treated, thanks to the laser’s aiming beam and adjustable spot size hand piece. The targeted high-dose therapy can effectively treat stubborn plaques, even those that have not responded to other treatments.

How does this compare with other psoriasis/vitiligo treatments?
Unlike topical creams and gels, this does not require any daily maintenance. Each patient is unique, but some patients enjoy several months of treatment-free remission after completing about 8 laser sessions. Treatments are painless and take only a few minutes. Equally important, some patients only need about 8 laser treatments, as opposed to 30 or more conventional booth sessions.

Is it safe?

Most treatments take only a few minutes. Due to the targeted nature of laser therapy, healthy skin is not exposed to the ultraviolet light. The laser may have fewer shortcomings than many common vitiligo treatments.  This reduces the total UV radiation and may lower the risk of premature skin aging and carcinogenesis that is often associated with UVB booths and PUVA.  There is no thinning of the skin, easy bruising, or stretch marks often caused by steroids, nor any of the systemic side effects caused by some oral medications.

Does treatment hurt? 
No. Most patients experience no pain or discomfort. A few patients may feel slight warmth shortly after treatment but this is mild and short-lived. There is no down-time – another reason why this treatment is great.

How many sessions will I need? 
This depends on the skin condition we are treating and the seriousness of the condition.  We create a customized course of therapy for you based upon the extent and location of the affected areas.

Are there side effects? 
The side effects of laser therapy are minimal. Most patients report no side effects with a few reporting a mild and short-lived redness at the lesion site. More serious side effects such as blistering and hyper-pigmentation are rare and short-lived.
