Aesthetico® Peeling: Under supervision from a doctor, skin peeling using fruit acids (salicylic and glycolic) to clean normal skin damaged by everyday living. The treatment gives an overall fresh look to the skin, improves problems with acne, fine lines, pigmentation, and oversized pores. A session will last about 60 minutes, and for the best results 4 – 6 treatments will be required. As the skin regenerates after treatment it will have a slight red appearance and light flaking may occur. This disappears rapidly.
This treatment is suitable for the face, back and décolleté. The skin is cleaned, gently peeled, cleansed and disinfected (acne toilette), to help remove blackheads, whiteheads and papulopustles (pimples). The procedure is used in conjunction with special creams to calm the skin, and face masks. This treatment is best used as support to a medicinal acne therapy. A session will last between 45 – 60 minutes and should be carried out every 4 – 6 weeks. (There are price concessions available for teenagers).

The sensitive area around the eye needs to be very carefully treated, with especially mild creams and serum and gentle compression. Eye brows can be sculptured into the customer’s desired shape using string epilation (hair removal), and both eye brows and eye lashes can be tinted, if so desired. Treatment can be completed in approximately 30 minutes, and can be repeated after 4 – 6 weeks.
Lash Lifting gives your eyes that magical look.
Lash Lifting, a new eyelash treatment, optically lengthens the individual lashes. As opposed to perming, whereby the lashes are curled around a small cotton rods, Lash Lifting uses special silicone pads and gentle solutions to lift the eyelashes directly from the roots. This method gives the visual effect of longer lashes – up to twice the length. It is the perfect alternative to artificial extensions to achieve a natural, long looking, compact and perfectly curved effect. Eyelash extensions don’t come into question for most women and the daily mascara, cumbersome dyeing or curling often result only in a short-term desired effect, are time consuming and expensive. For those who are tired of always using a lash curler or have no desire to have fake lashes, you should definitely try Lash Lifting . The result usually lasts more than 6 weeks and the treatment itself usually takes less than three quarters of an hour. To make the result perfect, the eyelashes can be colored after the lifting.
Sugaring is the gentlest method of removing unwanted hair. A sugar paste is applied at body temperature to the treatment area and the hair is removed almost painlessly. This method has been used for thousands of years by women in the orient, and is a highly effective natural epilation method. It lends itself particularly to sensitive areas such as the face and intimate regions of the body. If the customer doesn’t want this method to be used, or has a medical reason why it cannot be employed, we can carry out the epilation using the hot wax technique (removal of hair using a hot wax paste) or for small areas of unwanted hair and single hairs we can use the string epilation technique. Sessions for these treatments can vary in length depending on the body zone to be treated but at least 30 minutes will be required. Repetition of the treatment depends upon how quickly the client’s hair regrows.
We offer facial treatments suitable for both men and women, and all skin types, determined by skin analysis. We use a number of active ingredients and serums, mostly natural products derived from plant material, to help improve your skin and to help you to relax. The treatment consist of: skin analysis, cleansing, peeling (after steam treatment), application of specialised balsam gently massaged into the skin, individualised face mask and finally the application of a facial care cream. The treatment will last approximately 90 minutes.
The derma competence center offers the ‘gold standard’ method for permanent hair removal using a state-of-the-art Alexandrite laser, and will be supervised by a doctor who has specialised in dermatology. After the first session the customer will see a dramatic reduction in hair growth, and after 6 – 8 treatment sessions spaced between 4 – 6 weeks, a 95% reduction in unwanted hair will be achieved. The treatment will cause slight pain during the procedure and a slight reddening of the skin that will disappear quickly.
The skin and nails on our hands and feet are very sensitive, and are subjected to heavy ‘wear and tear’ on a daily basis, requiring specialised care to maintain their health and appearance. The derma competence center offers specialised and professional cosmetic manicures and pedicures designed for both women and men. We will be please to apply your desired nail finish (nail varnish etc.)
The décolleté skin and, to a lesser extent, the skin on the back are subjected to similar daily environmental punishment as our faces, and therefore will show signs of the skin’s aging process, namely, wrinkles, and pigmentation changes. The derma competence center has designed specialised cosmetic treatments to help these sensitive skin zones to regenerate, look healthier, fresher and youthful. The treatment, which includes anti-inflammatory components, also complements acne treatment. A treatment session will last about 45 minutes and can, if required, be repeated every 4 – 6 weeks.
What type of skin do I have? What should I do to look after my skin?
Am I using skin products and cosmetics that are suitable for my skin?
What can I do to make my skin look heathier, clearer, and make myself look younger?
These types of questions can be answered in personal consultation with our cosmetic experts at the derma competence center. A thorough analysis of your skin, pH value (acid/alkaline balance), complexion type, moisture level, fat content and skin elasticity will all first be measured. Using a special camera we can determine your skin’s type and its condition. Using all of this information, a personal care system can be developed together with you. A consultation (the first, or follow-up control) requires the client to be free of any cosmetic products, and will last approximately 30 minutes.
Well-fashioned and applied make-up is the ‘finishing touch’ to start the day. Our highly experienced beautician educated in the art of make-up can teach you the tricks of the trade to enable you to confidently step out for the day.

Skin tones can appear pallid and pale when the cells at the skin’s surface no longer fully function and cosmetic products can no longer compensate for the loss of colour. Micro-exfoliation gently abrades the surface of the skin using a jet of micro-fine aluminium oxide. The peeling action, combined with vacuum, stimulates the production of collagen, improves the elasticity of the skin and enhances blood micro-circulation. The skin feels softer, smoother and even. The appearance of scars, enlarged pores, and stretch marks will be improved. The treatment may lead to a discrete area of reddening in the treatment area that will quickly fade. The length of treatment sessions will vary depending on the skin area to be handled. To obtain optimum results, 3 – 4 sessions will be required spaced 2 – 4 weeks apart.
In the derma competence center, we use a combination of a weak aqueous solution of trichloroacetic acid and anti-oxidant cream, which is a highly effective and safe method to treat hyperpigmentation (melasma, chloasma), acne, skin aging, and sun-damaged skin. The treatment is very popular among our clients thanks to its effectiveness and its minimal side effects. Our TCA peeling process stimulates the skin and can be combined with other beauty therapies, (e.g. anti-wrinkle injections, botulinum injections and other peeling therapies) that can be carried out during the same treatment session. It is suitable for all skin types, can be undertaken at any time of the year and is a safe treatment for the face and other areas of the body. Success can be achieved in just on session.
V-Sonic uses ultrasound to assist the absorption of active substances into facial tissue and other areas of the body to treat cellulite, stretch marks, and joint pains.
Ultrasound technology has been used for many years in various medical branches, e.g. sport medicine and physiotherapy. Many scientific studies and practical experience have demonstrated the positive effects sound waves have on skin and body care. This method helps the active product to be properly absorbed into the body and to penetrate deep under the skin, where it will work best in combination with liposolve injections
Aesthetico® fruit acid is a fully natural product, based on acids obtained from lemons, apples, and wine. It is an extremely safe and highly flexible method to carry out skin peeling. The product’s activity depends upon the concentration of the acids in the aqueous solution, and the solution’s pH level. A treatment regime, depending on skin type, consists of between 6 – 12 sessions, set at intervals of 1 – 4 weeks. The treatment can be regulated to meet the demands of all skin types, and will not interfere with the customer’s normal daily activities. The treatment stimulates skin regeneration, removes surface dead skin cells, reduces hard skin deposits, and results in uniform and beautiful skin, enhanced collagen production and the stabilisation of the acidic protective layer of the skin.

With the assistance of this highly-developed scientific instrument, instantaneous measurements can be made to determine the condition of our clients’ skin and hair which allows us to give individualised recommendations on the most appropriate skin care program. The instrument measures:
– Skin moisture and fat content (which helps determine the optimal skin care products to use);
– Elasticity of the skin (helps to determine the biological age of the skin);
– Melamine level of the skin (determines the pigmentation of the skin, which helps in determining the optimal sun protection that should be used);
– And helps to examine areas that may benefit from laser treatment to improve the skin’s condition.
A specialised skin camera, with an integrated UV-A light source, is attached to this instrument, which enables the collection of detailed images of the skin’s surface as well as hair and scalp.
This method of natural removal of unwanted hair has its roots in the countries of the orient and has been practiced for thousands of years. The Sessu® methodology based on natural hair removal was patented over 30 years ago, and is the original “no wax, no resin, no chemicals” procedure. This unproblematic use of natural products is a safe and gentle way of removing hair and is suitable for all areas of the body.
Mechanical removal of the surface and middle layers of the skin is accomplished by firing a jet of high-speed quartz sand-like micro particles at the skin, and at the same time removing the used particles by suction. This peeling method is an effective treatment to thoroughly clean the skin, and is a helpful treatment for small scars, stretch marks, pigmentation issues and pale, tired skin. The process is painless, and can be used comprehensively. Optimal results will be achieved with 4 treatment sessions at 3 week intervals.

TCA peeling offers a safe and effective peeling without the need for a pre-treatment. Dilute acid breaks down the protein of the top surface of the skin that can then be removed. The extent of the peeling depends upon the concentration of the acid which can be varied, enabling a deeper level of peeling if required. The treatment will cause a tickling or light burning sensation during the treatment which will quickly disappear with the post-peel mask. This procedure is often referred to as the “weekend peel” and can be completely repeated within 2 – 3 days. The treatment is carried out after the skin has first been cleansed. The peeling effect will leave the skin slightly red with a light white coloration. Best results will be obtained with 4 – 6 peeling sessions with 2 week intervals between the sessions. Throughout the treatment period, the client needs to use a strong sun cream.

V-Sonic® offers the possibility of using variable frequency ultrasound waves to aid the absorption and deep penetration of active substances and/or combinations of active substances into the skin and deep body tissue. The waves promote the flow of fluids, (through heat and massage) and improve the blood flow to help bring the active products to the zone within the body where they will work best. For the best results, a number of sessions will be required. This treatment improves not only the skin, but also the connective tissue and joints. The client will suffer no down time after this treatment.
