CAN I  WEAR EYELASH EXTENSIONS IF MY LASHES ARE FRAGILE?

Yes, the extensions do not damage the natural lashes, we use silk based lashes which are very light, but we would suggest you to make a pause from time to time just to leave them alone and recover if needed.

ARE THERE ANY CONTRAINDICATIONS TO THE INSTALLATION OF EXTENSIONS?

There are no real contraindications. However, if you have conjunctivitis at the time of the appointment, we will not be able to do this treatment: If you wear contact lenses, you will be asked to remove them during the session. You can put them back in immediately afterwards.

ON AVERAGE, HOW LONG CAN YOU KEEP YOUR EXTENSIONS?

The eyelash extensions are glued to your natural lashes. It is not your extensions that fall out but your natural lashes. It is important to know that lashes fall out naturally from, like hair. On average, after three weeks to six weeks without filling, we lose a third of the extensions.

WHY DON’T YOU ADVISE TO DO A REFILL?

When you can’t wash and clean your eyes properly on the hygiene side, it’s not good for your eyelashes, that’s why you lose your natural eyelashes faster. If you want to continue extensions after 5 weeks I remove the remaining lashes, I do a good cleaning and care to strengthen the natural lashes and then I do the complete application. All this allows you to have beautiful and healthy eyelashes being in comfort with extension.

CAN I GO UNDERWATER WITH MY EYELASH EXTENSIONS?

The eyelash extensions are completely waterproof. You can go underwater without fear, at the beach, in the pool, in the sauna, in the steam room, in the shower, in the snow, you can cry with joy…! Go ahead, your extensions won’t leave you alone!

M.C.A. (MULTITREPANNIC COLLAGEN ACTUATION)

Price: on estimate according to difficulty and area

What is MCA?
MCA is a non-surgical and completely natural way to make the body’s own cells regenerate and reduce wrinkles. MCA is virtually painless, completely risk-free, and an excellent alternative to collagen injections and muscle relaxants such as Botox.
The result?
This treatment is to relax shrunken scars, plump the “valley” of wrinkles (forcing them to fill in), and “white scars” can often be re-pigmented to better match the surrounding skin tones. MCA can even be applied to the mouth area, re-pigmenting and relieving unsightly fine lines around the lip area. The results of MCA are much more durable and affordable. Usually, only experienced individuals practicing MCA can achieve the best results.
How often? 4-6 sessions once a month then one session per year

TCA PEEL TO MAKE YOUR SKIN NEW AGAIN

Price: Acne or blemishes from CHF 150

Wrinkles from CHF 180.00

exact price on quotation

What is a TCA peel?

A TCA peel consists of the application of a trichloroacetic acid solution on the skin, in order to create a chemical exfoliation. This controlled peel is applied to the necessary areas, so it is less violent than a usual peel in clinics. This means that this product reacts only to the dermis on wrinkles, spots and scars where the skin really needs it, stimulating the skin by provoking an intense cellular renewal.

Result: The TCA peel smoothes wrinkles, removes age spots, erases certain scars, and visibly rejuvenates the skin. It reveals a smoother skin, a fresh and unified complexion. We distinguish between 15%, 20%, 25% and 30% TCA peels.

It is important to prepare your skin 2 weeks prior to the TCA peel by following the dermo-cosmetic advice of your peel specialist. Immediately after the TCA peel, the skin is red. This treatment leads to a more or less important dequamation of the skin. During this phase, the epidermis renews itself, leaving a rosy complexion, which lasts about 1 month.

How often? A single TCA peel session may be sufficient, depending on the condition of your skin, this treatment could be repeated every 3 to 6 months.

 


MEDICAL MICRODERMABRASION

Price CHF 299.00

What is microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive technique that exfoliates the skin to promote cell renewal and tone the tissues.
The new generation of microdermabrasion works with very fast vibrations.

The interchangeable head (silicon carbide), performs orbital movements allowing a better removal of the stratum corneum in the smallest corners of the face and a reduction in the appearance of superficial wrinkles.
Thanks to the micro-pulsations, the skin and facial muscles receive the micro-massage that stimulates the blood circulation of the skin tissue. The production of new collagen is stimulated.

The results?

The perfectly cleansed skin instantly regains its clarity and appears smoother, firmer and more radiant.

During the session, some vibrations will be felt and you may notice slight redness depending on your skin type, which will fade the next day. The radiance effect is observed from the first treatment.

What is the rhythm?

Generally, 1 session every 4-6 weeks is recommended.

 


HYALURONIC ACID INJECTION

Our specialist only uses a product from a Geneva laboratory.

Bitter folds and corner of the mouth CHF 500-800.00

Lips CHF 300-500

Oval of the face CHF 800-1200

Dark circles CHF 700

Cheekbones CHF 700-1300

1) What is hyaluronic acid used for?

In aesthetics, hyaluronic acid is a filling product that is used to fill in wrinkles or to give volume, and to attenuate the marks of the passage of time, to correct nasolabial folds, to fill in bitterness folds (and other wrinkles around the lips), to increase the volume of the lips, to redefine the vermilion and to raise the drooping commissures, redefine the contour of the face, enhance cheekbones, restore lost volume to the cheeks and temples, fill in frown lines and crow’s feet, correct dark circles, beautify an uneven nose, correct a receding chin, fade acne scars, smooth and rejuvenate the back of the hands.

2) WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BOTOX AND HYALURONIC ACID?

 

Botox and hyaluronic acid are two complementary treatments. Hyaluronic acid is the treatment of the symptom, i.e. the wrinkle, by filling it in. Botox is the treatment of the cause of this symptom, i.e. the treatment of the muscles that cause the appearance of this wrinkle. Today hyaluronic acid can replace botox depending on the new technology used. No more toxin to be beautiful.

3) HOW DOES A HYALURONIC ACID INJECTION TAKE PLACE?

The injection takes place at the office and takes only a few minutes. The injection points and the quantities to be injected are very precise and require an excellent knowledge of the anatomy of the face.

4) ARE THERE ANY SPECIAL PRECAUTIONS AFTER A HYALURONIC ACID INJECTION?

After an injection of hyaluronic acid, you should simply avoid taking anti-inflammatory drugs or aspirin for 3 days. Redness, slight swelling, small bruises or nodules may sometimes appear in the injected area; these side effects are all transitory and last only a few days.

5) AFTER HOW LONG DO THE EFFECTS OF HYALURONIC ACID APPEAR?

The effect of hyaluronic acid is immediate. The result can therefore be appreciated directly.

6) IS IT NECESSARY TO REPEAT THE HYALURONIC ACID SESSIONS?

On average, the action of hyaluronic acid lasts 6 months-24 months. Sometimes, the duration of action is longer, around 12 months. With time, the filling injections can be spaced out.

7) AT WHAT AGE SHOULD HYALURONIC ACID INJECTIONS BE STARTED?

There is no official age for starting hyaluronic acid injections. As soon as the first small expression lines appear, hyaluronic acid injections can attenuate these first signs of the passing of time.

 


MEDICAL PERM MAKEUP – DERMOPIGMENTATION

Price varies from CHF 250 – Exact price on request

Inspired by tattooing, dermopigmentation is a technique that has recently developed into a medical-surgical technique. Our pigments are natural and reserved for medical specialists who are not aestheticians. The stability of the color and the duration of the result are superior.

It consists of introducing a pigment into the dermis with the help of an electrical device, and allows to modify the color of an area of skin with a repairing or purely aesthetic aim. Compared to artistic tattooing, this technique requires more medical knowledge, but the principle is the same.

The pigments, well tolerated by the body, are presented in the form of a stable solution of colored powders.

The dyes used for permanent make-up can be of mineral or organic origin: they must be sterile and approved “Medical Implants, CE standard”.

– Purely aesthetic tattooing: cosmetic tattooing or permanent make-up.

– Corrective tattooing or skin restructuring: Correction of a skin or mucous membrane surface with color anomalies.

– Post-surgical indications.

– Pigmentation technique and pain.

– Contraindications and precautions.

AESTHETIC INDICATIONS FOR PERMANENT MAKE-UP

Permanent makeup allows the shape and color of certain facial lines to be redrawn, in particular:

Eyebrows:

Impeccable eyebrows: there are two makeup techniques to redesign or intensify sparse, too light or absent eyebrows.

– Filling” offers a uniform result, similar to a pencil line.

– The “hair by hair”, more natural, reproduces the line of the hairs. The effect is visible from one to four years depending on the intensity of the pigment. Of course, the darker the starting color, the longer the effect lasts.

Lips:

A well-designed mouth: To correct asymmetry, thicken lips that are too thin or wrinkled, or enhance the natural color of the lips, it is best to choose an identical or slightly darker shade.

It is imperative to keep a natural look for a nice and tasteful effect.

If the lips have no volume, it is useful to think about plumping them up with hyaluronic acid injections.

The increased volume combined with a clean, recolored line will rejuvenate the mouth considerably.

Eye contour (eyeliner or ciliary densification):

A more intense look: The application of eyeliner requires a well-trained specialist because of the proximity of the eye.

The line can be more or less thick for an intensified look and a “full lashes” effect.

Mole:

A mole can be placed on the face according to the “mole language”.

Ephelides :

Freckles can also be placed on the face using dermopigmentation.

Scars or verge:

Aesthetic and restorative scar and verge pigmentation.

This makeup is particularly recommended :

– To men and women.

– To those who want to save time.

– To those who want to combine beauty and comfort 24/24.

– To people with no or few eyebrows.

– To people who have a loss of definition in the shape and color of the contours of the mouth, which becomes thinner and loses its shape over time.

– People who have difficulty applying makeup.

– People with an intolerance to makeup products.

– Sportswomen who want to maintain a clean, long-lasting line on their eyebrows, lips and eye area.

– Active women who want to reduce makeup time.

– For those who don’t like makeup to run or fade and lipstick to run into fine lines.

– For those with allergies.

– Those who suffer from alopecia (lack of hair in certain areas), either permanent or temporary (chemotherapy).

– To those who have had accidents or operations and have scars.

– To people who wear glasses and contact lenses.

– To people who have troublesome greenness.

– To those who wish to repair an unfortunate dermopigmentation.

This implantation is considered semi-permanent because it fades with time (several years).

It is important to choose a natural and discreet makeup that simply enhances the face but does not impose itself in an artificial way.

Care must be taken when choosing the shape and color you wish to obtain.
The advice of the person who performs the dermopigmentation is invaluable: the criteria for choice will be based on the patient’s morphology, skin tone and the result she hopes to achieve.

Before the session, a simulation is done with a pencil for the lines and a brush for the color. If the patient is satisfied with the simulation, the make-up will be done with her agreement.

MEDICAL CORRECTIVE INDICATIONS FOR PERMANENT MAKE-UP

This practice concerns :

– People with a loss of definition of shape and color of the eyebrows or the contour of the lips, which becomes thinner and loses its shape over time.

– People with loss of eyelashes and eyebrows: hair loss, trauma, burns, scars, chemotherapy.

– Attenuation of tattoo spots after radiotherapy with “flesh-colored” pigment.

– Temporary or permanent depigmentation.

– Redefinition and coloring of breast areolas that are too light or asymmetrical.

POST-SURGICAL INDICATIONS FOR PERMANENT MAKE-UP

This technique is a very interesting complement for the repair of the integuments after a surgical act.

It allows :

– Redraw the shape.

– To repigment post-surgical scarring: breast areolas after breast augmentation or reduction surgery, facelift, post-traumatic surgery.

– Repigmenting post-LASER depigmentation.

– Reconstruction of the areolar-mammary plate after breast cancer.

– Lip reconstruction for cleft lip and palate, loss of substance or scars.

– Alleviate scars in hairy areas with loss of hair (eyelashes, eyebrows, scalp, beard…).

– Improve depigmented skin grafts.

PIGMENTATION TECHNIQUE:

Implantation is performed with an electrical device and needles with one or more points depending on the work to be done.

The needles and pigments are sterile and single-use: there is therefore no risk of contamination.

Depending on the size of the area to be treated, particularly for skin reconstruction or scar camouflage, the color may change slightly in the month following implantation.
A rectification of the shade can then be considered one month after the trial session: several passages will be necessary.

A trial session should be done first and a month should be waited for to evaluate the evolution of the color. The color will indeed lighten with time.

PAIN :

Dermopigmentation is sometimes a bit sensitive and it is common to use an anesthetic cream that must be applied in a thick layer to the area of interest an hour and a half before the pigmentation.

If this is not sufficient, a local anesthetic can be used. For eyeliner for people with anxiety, it may be useful to take a mild tranquilizer before the pigmentation.

FOLLOW-UP :

If the patient is prone to bruising, it is necessary to take doses of Arnica the day before and the morning of the procedure.

PRECAUTIONS AND CONTRAINDICATIONS

Dermopigmentation is a safe, minimally invasive, outpatient technique with simple aftercare.

However, as in any act that affects the integrity of the human body, a certain number of precautions must be taken and there are contraindications.

CONTRAINDICATIONS :

The implant should not be used in certain cases:

– Progressive dermatological diseases, infectious diseases.

– Pathologies or eye irritations for an eyeliner.

– Autoimmune diseases, although the pigment is inert.

– Significant systemic disorders (insulin-dependent diabetes, severe allergies, renal, hepatic or cardiac insufficiency…).

– Tendency to develop keloids.

– Treatment with vitamin A acid (Roaccutane).

– Certain unstable and undecided psychological profiles due to the permanent nature of the pigmentation.

– Immunocompromised patients (AIDS, kidney transplants, immune deficiency…).

It should be noted that patients on anti-coagulants (Aspirin), anti-inflammatory drugs may be subject to hematoma, bruising or bleeding localized to the implantation area.

Because of a possible interaction of the colored implant with filling implants (wrinkles, lip augmentation…), it is recommended to wait two months between the two.

In case of a history of herpes, it is necessary to take a specific treatment before lip pigmentation.

A medical questionnaire will be filled out before any pigmentation.

PRECAUTIONS :

After the pigmentation session, it is recommended to:

– Put ice for ½ hour on the treated area to calm the temporary inflammatory reaction.

– Clean the pigmented area morning and evening with a soothing lotion without rubbing.

– Apply an anti-inflammatory and antiseptic lotion morning and night for three days.

– Do not remove the small scabs, which are normal.

– Avoid swimming in the sea or in a pool for five days and avoid exposure to the sun or UV rays for ten days.

The appearance of an oedema is normal, it will last 24 to 48 hours.

If there is capillary fragility, it is possible to have bruises, especially after eyeliner.

A small itch may sometimes appear for 8 days.

 


LASER LIFTING OR PHOTOREJUVENATION

Price from CHF 300 – Exact price on request

To treat one of the main signs of facial aging, i.e. skin sagging, which occurs from the age of 30 onwards, you can say goodbye to a surgical facelift thanks to non-surgical laser mini-facelift.
The areas treated are the oral cavity and the face, using two different lasers and four different treatment modalities.
The action is at the level of :
-the superficial, medium and deep dermis where the effect is immediate for the contraction of collagen fibers, which acts on skin slackening and gives a volumizing effect like the injections and delayed because there is a stimulation of neocollagenesis
-of the epidermis where imperfections are targeted.

Advantages of laser lifting

Non-invasive technique
-No social eviction
-No anesthesia
-Fast procedure
-Procedure can be performed all year round
-Painless technique

After the age of forty or even thirty for some, the effects of time and the signs of aging start to be felt. On the forehead, around the mouth, around the eyes, when wrinkles set in, it becomes difficult to ignore the reflection of our “beautiful mirror”. The verdict is in and the idea of feeling old gives us a glimpse of the nostalgia of our 20-year-old face.

The idea of blocking the passage of time in order to feel good in one’s head and body then appears. But these motivations are quickly overtaken by the apprehension of throwing oneself into the hands of cosmetic surgery and its post-operative consequences. But forget all this and think instead of the rise of aesthetic medicine to solve this problem and more particularly of laser.

What is the principle of laser?
Laser skin rejuvenation is an aesthetic medicine treatment. It aims to reduce and correct the signs of aging with the help of a beam that targets the melanin and water already present in the layers of the epidermis. This system excites the cells of the dermis, which increases the production of collagen, thus allowing the natural regeneration of the skin and providing the volume and relief necessary to fill in wrinkles.
The laser also allows for skin regeneration through the fractional ablation of its small particles. This also induces an excellent retraction with a great “lifting” effect.

An effective method!
Laser treatment of skin aging is an aesthetic method that could be gentle. Depending on the type of laser and the patient’s plan, it can cause moderate redness that can be easily camouflaged with makeup.
In general, photo rejuvenation laser sessions last between 20 and 30 minutes.

The procedure is very little or not at all painful. Slight tingling accompanied by brief sensations of heat remain very bearable. A soothing cream or gel is applied at the end of the session to moisturize and repair the skin.

A method with few risks!
Burns, pain, stretched skin, social eviction, swelling, etc. Rest assured, the ‘non-ablative’ laser is safe. It acts on the middle to deep layers of the skin, without having any effect on the upper layer of the epidermis. Only a slight reddening of the treated area will appear and then disappear half an hour after the procedure.
On the other hand, slight burns, pain, a sensation of stretched skin, social eviction, swelling, etc. may be present when using ablative lasers that act on the most superficial layer of the skin.

Surprising results
Laser rejuvenation is recommended to treat sagging skin. In general, 5 to 6 sessions are sufficient to obtain a visible result. At the end of the treatment, the skin is brighter, more toned and wrinkles are reduced.

RADIANCE OF YOUR EYES

CHF400.00

The eye contour is a very sensitive and fragile area that easily reveals the stigmata of fatigue or age. Dark circles will first appear at the corner of the eye before spreading to the contour, making the look sad and tired.
