This treatment consists of passing the derma roller over the scalp several times while applying an anti-hair loss lotion, ending with light therapy. This same lotion is given to patients to continue the treatment at home every day until the next session.
Hair micropigmentation is a technique based on the subcutaneous injection of pigments. This technique can be used for both men and women.
The technique is usually performed in three to four sessions. It is not painless, you may feel a slight tingling or even some inflammation at the end of the session.
The injection of the pigment is done in a depth varying from 0.25 to 1.75 millimeters which allows to uniform the color of the hair. The pigment is inserted into the hairless area using a series of machines, needles and techniques specially adapted to the scalp.
Hair micropigmentation is also compatible with hair transplant treatments. So if you combine them, you will get an excellent result in density.
Micropigmentation offers 3 specific types of treatment:
- The shaved effect
- The densification effect
- Correction of scars on the scalp
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is injected directly into the scalp via micro-injections.
After the injection of PRP, the growth factors contained in it will promote hair growth. Hair loss decreases significantly after the first treatment session.
The objective of the PRP hair injection is to stimulate hair growth in a natural way. The platelets and growth factors will stimulate the microcirculation of the scalp and improve the activity of the hair follicle cells, promoting the production of stronger, less brittle hair.
A classic technique in the treatment of hair loss, it consists of micro-injections of a mixture of amino acids, anti-oxidants, minerals (zinc, copper) and vitamins. The injected substances act directly on the scalp and the hair bulbs, thus promoting hair growth and limiting hair loss.
In addition, the hair fiber thickens naturally and dandruff is reduced. A real boost to the hydration and nutrition of the hair bulbs, this method also helps to restore shine and volume and to calm irritated scalps.
Increasingly popular due to its permanent effect, this method consists of transferring healthy hair follicles into the targeted areas from the donor areas. Microsurgery allowing patients to have natural and strong hair.
How is hair transplantation used?
In hair transplantation, strong hair follicles are removed from a donor area of the patient and transplanted into the open ducts of thinning or completely bald areas.
Who can have a hair transplant?
Patients who have suffered hair loss as a result of medical treatment (e.g. cancer chemotherapy), as well as patients suffering from significant hair loss with a real aesthetic embarrassment behind it, can resort to hair transplantation.
What are pigment spots?
A pigment spot is an area of skin that has a darker coloration than the rest of the skin. It results from hyper pigmentation in melanin (substance determining the color of the skin, hair and eyes). This usually occurs after the age of 30. These spots can be located in different parts of the body (Visa, Décolleté, Back of the Hands, Arms, Shoulders and Upper Back).
How are pigment spots formed?
Pigment spots can form as a result of multiple skin aggressions inducing high levels of melanin.
- Excessive exposure to the sun: hence the interest in using SPF (Sun Protector Factor) protection.
- Hormonal changes: especially with contraception, pregnancy and menopause.
- Age: Although the number of melanocytes decreases with age, their volume and activity increases.
- Skin injuries and inflammations: cause the release of melanin.
- Some plants (e.g. St. John’s wort) and some drugs (e.g. Antibiotics).
There are different types of pigment spots, namely;
- Melasma (or chloasma), which is due to a hormonal disorder, especially during pregnancy (pregnancy mask).
- Actinic lentigo, or solar lentigo, where the sun can cause severe damage to the skin.
- Lentigo senile, or age spots.
- Pigmentary scars: Most often due to acne. Pigment scars result in pink, red or brown spots on the skin.
- Chemical Peel
Scars: Causes and Types.
Scars are unsightly marks on the skin that are more or less deep, and can have different colors and sizes. They are the result of a cellular repair of the skin that can last several months. They can appear after a skin trauma as :
- An injury
- A surgical operation
- Stretch marks
- A burn
There are different types of scars:
Mature scar: A flat, light-colored, mature scar. The scar will never change or fade.
Immature scar: An immature scar that can still fade and become less visible. Red, sometimes pruritic or painful, slightly raised.
Hypertrophic scar: This scar is usually red, thick and raised and may be painful or itchy but remains confined to the borders of the original wound. A hypertrophic scar usually begins to form within a few weeks of the injury and can rapidly enlarge. The scar can still fade naturally, although this process can take about two years.
Keloid scar: A keloid scar is a thick, irregular mass of scar tissue that extends beyond the boundaries of the original wound. It is often red in color or darker than the surrounding skin. A keloid can develop several months after the lesion and worsen during pregnancy. Most of the time, this type of scar does not fade naturally. Keloids are generally found in subjects with highly pigmented skin.
Atrophic scarring: This type of scarring usually appears as small, rounded depressions below the surface of the surrounding skin. Atrophic scarring occurs when the healing process has been interrupted and insufficient new connective tissue fibers have formed as a result of an acne outbreak or chicken pox. The microbes present in acne and the chickenpox virus slow down the filling of the lesion.

What are Dilated Pores?
The pores allow the skin to breathe. Our sebaceous glands secrete too much sebum, which can clog our pores, causing pimples and blackheads.
Often visible on the T-zone, they are located on the wings of the nose, the chin and the forehead. They are most often seen in people with oily skin, although mixed and dry skin can see them appear. While pimples often fade over the years, this is unfortunately not the case for enlarged pores, which grow larger year after year.
- The sun: By damaging elastin and collagen fibers, UVA and UVB rays accentuate pore dilation. The sun thickens the epidermis and stimulates the sebaceous glands which produce excess sebum.
- Tobacco: Adopt a healthy lifestyle by limiting smoking. Indeed, the nicotine present in cigarettes has a harmful impact on the oxygenation of the skin.
- Diet: Fatty foods have a direct impact on the beauty of the skin. In order to limit excess sebum, it is recommended to adopt a balanced diet, rich in fruits and vegetables.

Wrinkles and fine lines: ZOOM
How do wrinkles form?
With age, the skin loses its elasticity. It wrinkles; it withers and fades. The first wrinkles and fine lines generally appear at the age of 30. The appearance of wrinkles is not solely attributed to age. They are also related to health, care and sun or food.
The main wrinkles of the face are :
- Chemical Peel
- Hyaluronic Acid Injections
- Botox injections
- Hydrafacial care
- Regenerative Tensor Wires
Sagging Skin: Causes
Causes of sagging skin:
Among the causes of sagging skin, biological factors play a major role. These are mainly:
- Slower cell renewal does not allow for effective correction of the deterioration of skin cells by various external aggressions.
- The accumulation of dead epidermal cells on the surface of the skin making it thicker with a blurred appearance.
- The deterioration, with time, of collagen fibers leads to a loss of skin elasticity.
- The degradation of the sebaceous glands, also an effect of time, causes a loss of hydration of the skin.
- Weight loss can also be a factor.
- Hyaluronic Acid Injections
Irregular skin tone: Causes
An uneven and dull complexion can appear at any age. This is due to various factors, both internal and external, that cause poor oxygenation of the skin. To wit;
- Lifestyle and poor nutrition
- Exposure to the sun
- Hydrafacial care
- Hyaluronic Acid Injections
Dark circles and Pockets
- Hyaluronic Acid Injections
Rhinoplasty is a cosmetic surgery operation that consists in modifying the shape and size of the nose. The complexity of a rhinoplasty varies according to the type of correction. Thus, the correction of the bridge of the nose is relatively simple while the correction of the tip of the nose is rather complex.
Rhinoplasty can be performed at the end of the growth of the facial mass, that is to say from about 18 years. This procedure is also very effective for older people since, as we age, the thickness of the cartilage and the elasticity of the skin decrease. There is no maximum age for rhinoplasty.
Due to the complexity of the anatomy of the nose, rhinoplasty is a very delicate operation that has great consequences for the overall appearance of the face, self-confidence and emotional comfort. It is essential to analyze the deformities to be corrected and to establish the aesthetic goals to be achieved before undergoing rhinoplasty.
The immediate result of rhinoplasty is not the final result. The result is usually only noticeable after one year. Realistic expectations of the procedure will help you to appreciate the result of the rhinoplasty.
Liposuction is a surgical procedure that consists of removing excess fat. This technique makes it possible to eliminate localized fat cells that are resistant to dieting.
It is rather practiced in second intention, after failure of the usual methods of slimming and in complement of a good life hygiene (physical exercise, balanced diet, etc). Most areas of the body can benefit from this operation:
- the belly,
- the saddlebags (trochanter region),
- love handles,
- the hips,
- the inner side of the knees,
- and even the back.
- Liposuction can also be performed on the neck, to erase the double chin, or on the face (mainly cheeks), to emphasize the oval of the face.
A breast augmentation is generally a good solution for women who are dissatisfied with the volume or shape of their breasts.
Breast augmentation can be considered after childbirth, after considerable weight loss, or by women who have small breasts due to a lack of tissue (hypoplasia).
This decision is very personal and has radical consequences. It should be a well thought out process with all the information required by the specialists.
During the initial consultation, the plastic surgeon will explain the entire breast augmentation procedure: the benefits, the potential risks of the procedure and the post-operative care. He also listens to your motivations and answers all your questions. We recommend that you prepare for your consultation on paper and list any questions you may have about breast augmentation.
In addition, the surgeon will introduce you to the different types of breast implants, as they vary in filling, shape, size and surface type. Together you will choose the profile and volume of your breast implants.
In order to achieve the desired result for your breast augmentation, the plastic surgeon will ask you about your medical history and evaluate your physical condition. Thus, the surgeon seeks with you, the best solution to guarantee you a satisfactory result.
How does Diode laser hair removal work?
Technique aimed at eliminating the hair at the base of the hair follicle by destroying the germinal endings, which permanently stops the hair from growing back. While those that are not in the growth phase will also be destroyed but not permanently because the structures that feed them are not destroyed.
In order to achieve permanent hair removal from an area, all the hairs must be touched by the laser at least once during their growth phase. Hence the need to repeat the sessions in a specific interval depending on the area to be depilated.
Once destroyed, the hair will come out and fall out by itself within two weeks after the treatment. This distant hair loss is completely normal and typical of diode laser hair removal.
The Diode laser adapts to all hair sizes, including the finest, for effective and complete hair removal from all areas of the body. The diode laser can also be used for dark skin with a longer exposure time.
The number of sessions varies according to the hairiness, the area to be treated and the skin phototype.
The number of sessions, for a definitive result, is generally 8 to 10 sessions. On the other hand, in women, certain areas are hormone-dependent, such as the face or the bust. These hormone-dependent areas will therefore require more sessions for complete hair removal.
In men, hair is more stimulated. Although permanent hair removal takes longer and is not always 100% complete, the diode laser is ideal. Because it provides very good quality hair removal by eliminating the greatest number of hairs.
Act consisting of applying an acid to the skin in order to provoke a limited and controlled destruction of the epidermis and even of the superficial layers of the dermis in order to create a regeneration of the cutaneous cells.
Non-invasive treatment performed with a dermapen, on areas targeted in advance, the roller will create micro perforations. These will cause a double stimulation of the skin. This technique helps to reduce pigmentary spots, scars, wrinkles and fine lines.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections are used to regenerate epidermal cells. Result after one session: a luminous complexion, pigment spots and scars fade away.
Mesotherapy consists of small injections of various products into the skin, thus revitalizing the skin tissue. While it is most often performed on the face, neck and décolleté, it can also treat the back of the hands.
Result: a radiant, more hydrated, more toned skin. And, in the long run, firmer and less crumpled. Fine lines are often erased, the skin is less rough and gains in elasticity.
What do Mesotherapy injections contain?
For deep mesotherapy, low cross-linked and micronized hyaluronic acid is used.
For superficial mesotherapy, mixtures are used that contain non-crosslinked hyaluronic acid, amino acids, a vitamin complex (C, A, E, B5), trace elements, and antioxidants.
Hyaluronic acid, already present in our body, is a very important moisturizing agent for the preservation of the skin’s youth. Hyaluronic acid is mainly used for the lower face. By injecting it, it will have a volumizing effect and fill in the wrinkle. Its moisturizing and volumizing action will last up to a year.
These injections also allow you to have fuller lips without fine lines with a gloss effect. As well as reducing dark circles and puffiness.
Botulinum toxin has the effect of freezing the muscle, thus preventing the formation of wrinkles. It has a smoothing effect on the treated area. Mainly used for the upper face. Its effects often last up to a year.
It is a moisturizer that brings an instantaneous glow to the skin. The treatment is based on 4 steps with the use of different products to smooth and soften the skin texture. This helps to erase fine lines for a fresher skin effect. Ideally, the treatment should be repeated every month for optimal results.
New generation of tensor threads that have a double action on the face. The principle of this technique is to tighten the skin, without pain, using mini bidirectional cones. The threads contain glycolic acid. Once resorbed, these threads release this substance which has the effect of resurfacing the area. The benefits of this method last for many years.
Radiofrequency is based on the emission of very high frequency electromagnetic waves that pass through the skin and produce heat in the subcutaneous tissue. This heat will act in depth without burning the skin surface.
The radiofrequency, by its action of tension and regeneration on the collagen fibers, allows to improve the cutaneous elasticity. It allows to treat skin slackening, to redesign or reshape the weakened contours of the face and body.
A patented technology that nourishes and oxygenates the skin of the face to achieve younger-looking skin. The OxyGeneo treatment is a 3-step process that combines skin exfoliation, infusion of essential nutrients and oxygenation. This makes it possible to obtain palpable results from the first session.
Very safe technique, which does not cause irritation and is suitable for all skin tones and types. It is suitable even for the most sensitive skin and those most prone to keloid formation (scars).
