Behandeling voor een jongere huid

Skin rejuvenation

Ageing causes a number of visible changes to the skin. Often the skin shows fine wrinkles, decreased elasticity, and a coarse texture. The skin can also show pigmentation and unsightly veins (couperose).

There are several methods through which we can significantly counteract these ageing effects. The skin will rejuvenate, the pores will refine, and the skin will strengthen and refresh.

Skin ageing

Once we have reached 30 years of age, the skin will no longer form new collagen by itself. As such the skin will visibly age. The skin slackens, grows thinner and becomes less elastic. The fat tissue also decreases. Sunlight and smoking accelerate the ageing of the skin.

Our answer

Our laser specialists can improve and rejuvenate the skin with a variety of methods. All treatments stimulate the production of collagen in the skin and thus counteract the skin’s ageing.

With our methods we rejuvenate, refresh, and strengthen the skin and refine its texture.

Intake

The first step is always an intake with our laser specialist. During this consultation our exact method, your wishes and the realistic possibilities are discussed.

Customized treatment

During the consultation the specialist examines your skin in order to customize the most effective treatment. Often a combination of treatment methods delivers the most optimal results. Every treatment is tailored to the face, skin, and the degree of ageing.

Because every type of skin is different we need to customize each treatment for optimal results. The exact price and the number of treatments required therefore also differ for each person.

Honest advice

Although we can considerably improve and rejuvenate the skin with our skin treatments, these methods cannot deal with all signs of ageing. For example, deep wrinkles are not affected enough by these treatments and might need Botox® or fillers, possibly combined with one of our skin treatments. Of course these treatments are also not capable of achieving the same lifting effects as a facelift. As such it is important to discuss your wishes and the realistic results we can achieve with these skin treatments during the intake.

During a personal intake you will receive honest advice about the best possibilities to improve and rejuvenate your skin.

For an intake we charge € 35,-. In most cases we can plan an intake with a treatment directly after, if so desired and requested in advance.

Treatment

Our laser specialists can rejuvenate the skin with the following methods (click to expand for more info):

IPL

The Ellipse IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) sends out bursts of intense light. The skin absorbs the energy of these flashes, causing redness and pigmentation to fade, the skin texture to refine and active acne to be reduced.

Radiofrequency (RF)

A radiofrequency treatment stimulates the production of collagen and thus counteracts the effects of skin ageing. The skin tightens and strengthens.

Fractional

A treatment with the fractional method is a good way to renew the skin. Fine lines, slacked skin, and irregularities such as acne scars can significantly be improved with this method.

LED

LED light stimulates the production of new cells and repairs skin tissue. The blue LED light kills the bacteria that cause acne.

Peeling

LED light stimulates the production of new cells and repairs skin tissue. The blue LED light kills the bacteria that cause acne.

IPL

The Ellipse IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) sends out bursts of intense light. The skin absorbs the energy of these flashes, causing redness and pigmentation to fade, the skin texture to refine and active acne to be reduced.

With the IPL we can considerably rejuvenate and refresh the skin. The pores refine and the skin tone improves. The production of collagen is also stimulated, causing the skin to strengthen and rejuvenate.

Veins, redness, and pigmentation spots - including those visible in scars - all fade by treating the skin with the IPL. The IPL’s flashes also kill bacteria, causing pimples to dry out and further reducing redness.

Pre-care

In case you decide to let your skin be treated with the IPL it is important that the skin is as light as possible. Avoid sun tanning and tanning beds during the 3 to 4 weeks before the treatment. Any tanning cream (bronzer) needs to be avoided 1 week before the treatment.

Aftercare

After a treatment with the IPL the following matters apply:

  • The treated pigmentation spots and red veins may show some darker discolourations and scabs. This is the sign that the pigmentation and red veins are being broken down and will slowly fade with the renewal of the skin. The discolourations and scabs usually disappear within 1 to 2 weeks. It is important to leave the scabs alone - they need to come off by themselves.
  • No sun, tanning beds, or tanning cream (bronzer) for the first 4 weeks after the treatment.

Pigmentation spots worsen by sunlight and tanning beds. In case you are sensitive to pigmentation disorders we advise you to be careful with the sun throughout the year, and use a proper sunscreen every 2 hours when in the sun. 

Results

The light of the IPL and lasers is absorbed by the skin and transformed into heat. This causes the pigmentation to fade, red veins to fade, the pores to refine and the skin texture and tone to improve.

External factors such as the sun can damage the skin again. Ageing will also keep reducing the quality of the skin. As such, new ageing effects, including pigmentation spots, may appear over time, and will require maintenance treatments. 

Radiofrequency (RF)

Electromagnetic radio waves generate sensible heat in the skin. A radiofrequency treatment stimulates the production of collagen and thus counteracts the effects of skin ageing. The skin tightens and strengthens. Our laser specialists use the Accent XL and the Venus Viva for this treatment.

Pre-care

There is no pre-care necessary for a radiofrequency treatment.

Accent XL

The Accent sends out electromagnetic radio waves (bipolar and unipolar) that pass energy on to the deeper layers of the skin, up to 20 mm deep. By rotating the water molecules in these layers, the skin quickly warms to 40 degrees Celsius. In reaction to this heating the collagen of the skin contracts, becomes thicker and shorter, and new collagen is formed. Repeated treatments result in a more compact and firmer skin.

The unipolar setting on the Accent uses higher energy levels to warm a large amount of tissue up to 20 mm deep - for example the area under the chin, the cheeks, or the jawline. The bipolar setting is used for areas with thinner tissue, such as the neck and the forehead.

Venus Viva

The Venus Viva combines radiofrequency with magnetic pulses and thus stimulates the production of collagen. The Venus Viva also allows for the treatment of the skin with fractional therapy.

Aftercare

After a treatment with radiofrequency the skin may appear red and swollen. This generally disappears within a day. There is no further aftercare necessary.

Number of treatments

For optimal results multiple radiofrequency treatments are necessary. Generally 4 to 6 treatments are needed with intervals of 3 to 4 weeks.

Results

The result of radiofrequency is usually only visible after multiple treatments. The skin tightens and becomes firmer. The production of collagen is stimulated, causing the skin to rejuvenate. We advise you to maintain the skin at least every 6 months.

Fractional

A treatment with the fractional method is a good way to renew the skin. Fine lines, slacked skin, and irregularities such as acne scars can significantly be improved with this method.

With fractional therapy we create regular minuscule holes in the skin in a controlled manner. This forces the skin to renew itself and form new collagen. For this method, our laser specialists use the Erbium Yag laser, Venus Viva, Morpheus 8, Tixel, or Ydun laser.

Pre-care

Before this treatment can take place the following practical matters apply:

  • For this treatment it is important that the skin is not sunburned. Therefore you need to avoid sun tanning and tanning beds during the 2 weeks before the treatment.
  • In the case of active acne the skin cannot be treated with this method.
  • Please inform the laser specialist if you occasionally have cold sores

Erbium Yag

The Erbium Yag evaporates the upper skin layers using a fractional laser beam. When a laser beam is fractionated it is divided into many smaller laser beams. As such the fractional laser creates tiny holes in the skin, forcing it to rejuvenate and renew itself. The recovery time after an Erbium Yag treatment is about 7 to 10 days.

Venus Viva

The Venus Viva relies on a method called fractional needling, or micro-needling. It creates tiny holes in the skin using many very thin needles. This method goes less deep into the skin than the Erbium Yag, causing the downtime to be shorter. The Venus Viva also creates heat in the skin through radiofrequency, stimulating the production of collagen and fibroblasts.

A Venus Viva treatment can also be combined with a PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) treatment, to further boost the rejuvenation of your skin, or the growth of your hair. The recovery time after a Venus Viva treatment is about 5 to 7 days.

Morpheus 8

Another option to rejuvenate the skin is offered by the Morpheus 8. This treatment also combines microneedling along with radiofrequency. However, the needles of the Morpheus 8 penetrate the skin slightly deeper, stimulating the production of elastin and collagen. This treatment can not only be done on the face, but also on other parts of the body. If desired, we can numb the skin in advance with a cream. The Morpheus 8 is a good treatment to rejuvenate and invigorate the skin, and to reduce fine wrinkles and large pores. Also for stretch marks and scars the Morpheus 8 can help. Stretch marks will never vanish, but they can become less visible.

Directly after the treatment the skin will be red and swollen - this can be camouflaged well with a foundation. It may be that some dark dots become visible on the skin in the days after the treatment. These can be camouflaged well and will disappear by themselves. The recovery time for the face and neck is about 4 to 7 days, but is slightly longer for the belly and legs.

In general three treatments are required with recovery periods of 4-6 weeks in between. After these initial three treatments, an occasional treatment will do.

Tixel

The Tixel makes use of thermal skin rejuvenation. The skin is warmed through miniscule tips that generate heat. This forces the skin to rejuvenate and form new collagen.

The recovery time after a Tixel treatment is about 5 to 7 days.

Ydun

The Ydun uses a fractional laser beam to rejuvenate the skin. The skin is forced to form new collagen in its deeper layers. This causes the connective tissue to recover and smoothens the surface of the skin. The recovery time after an Ydun treatment is about 7 to 10 days.

Number of treatments

For optimal results multiple (three) treatments are advised. In between each fractional treatment needs to be a period of at least 4 weeks. The exact treatment plan will be compiled by the laser specialist, based on your skin.

Aftercare

After a fractional treatment the following practical matters apply:

  • The skin will appear irregularly red and somewhat swollen for the first few days. This is normal and will disappear by itself. The skin can also feel dry and tight.
  • The skin may flake. This process will take about a week.
  • Sports, sauna, and swimming are discouraged during the first 24 hours after the treatment.
  • No sun or tanning bed for at least 3 to 4 weeks. A proper sunscreen (factor 30 or higher) is advised at all times.

Results

The skin is generally healed from the treatment after 7 to 10 days. After this healing process the result will become visible. In the months to follow, the skin keeps producing collagen and thus keeps rejuvenating.

An optimal result is achieved through multiple treatments. During the consultation, our laser specialist will compile a treatment plan based on your skin.

LED therapy

The LED Therapy Mask was originally developed by NASA to accelerate the healing of wounds. LED light stimulates the production of new cells and repairs skin tissue. The blue LED light kills the bacteria that cause acne.

LED light is very suitable for the rejuvenation and general improvement of the skin. LED Therapy can also be used in combination with other facial treatments for an accelerated effect. The LED Therapy Mask also increases the permeability of the skin, which causes nourishing creams and serums to work more effectively.

The LED Mask will be placed onto your face for 20 minutes. During this time the mask radiates several wavelengths of LED light, depending on the goal of the treatment. This treatment can also be combined with a hyaluronic acid mask, which restores the moisture levels in the skin.

Number of treatments

With acne the skin is generally calmer after 1 treatment already. For skin rejuvenation and healing usually multiple treatments are required.

Pre-care

There is no pre-care required for a treatment with the LED Therapy Mask.

Aftercare

Directly after the treatment the skin may feel warm and appear red. This usually disappears the same day. There is no further aftercare required for this treatment.

Results

The result will become visible within a few days. The skin will be tighter, any redness will be reduced, and with acne the inflammation will be reduced as well.

Peeling

A peeling improves the structure of the skin. It refines the skin tone and reduces irregularities. With peelings we eliminate old superficial skin cells, forcing the skin to renew and rejuvenate. Active acne can be cleansed with the help of peelings.

Pre-care

The skin cannot be sunburned. We therefore advise to avoid sun tanning and tanning beds for 2 to 3 weeks before the treatment.

Treatment

First the skin is cleaned. Then the skin is covered with a fluid - the peeling. This process is practically painless. The skin may however feel tight and sting a little during the treatment. A treatment of the face takes about 20 minutes. As result the pores refine, pigmentation fades, and impurities such as acne are cleansed. The production of collagen is also stimulated, causing the skin to rejuvenate.

Aftercare

After a peeling it is important to avoid the sun and tanning bed for 2 to 3 weeks. A proper sunscreen (factor 30 or higher) is advised at all times. Generally the skin will flake and peel in the first 5 to 7 days. Do not touch the peels, they need to come off by themselves. After 1 week the new skin is usually visible.

Result

Besides stimulating the production of collagen, our treatments also stimulate the local bloodstream in the skin. Waste materials are drained faster and better and the skin receives better access to oxygen and nutrients. After the treatment the skin will also keep on producing collagen for a few months, thus extending the rejuvenation process.

Apart from our treatments it is important to protect and take care of your skin in daily life as well.

Our advice

External factors such as smoking and exposure to sunlight can damage the skin again. Hereditary factors and the regular ageing of the skin will also keep playing a part. In order to maintain the improved skin quality we advise a regular follow-up treatment. 

Our skin care products

The use of nourishing creams and serums, in combination with sunscreen (SPF 30 or higher) shall also counteract the ageing of the skin. During the consultation, our specialists can advise which of our products are best suitable for the needs of your skin.
