Scar reduction

HOW ARE SCARS FORMED?

Scar formation is a natural process of skin rejuvenation. They appear after all kinds of injuries like incisions or burns. The wound is filled with blood and a protective scab is formed. New living cells flow towards the site of injury to remove the dead cells. Then the cells of the connective tissue begin to produce a replacement epithelial coating using collagen.
There are many pharmacological therapies that are designed to accelerate healing and alleviate scarring, but they are not always effective.

The healing processes begin at the very moment of injury, but the scar can take the final shape even after a year! It depends on the type of injury, the place of injury, but also on the individual predisposition of the body.

HOW IT’S DONE

The method that gives you the best results depends on the scar itself. Consultation with a specialist doctor is aimed at selecting the optimal treatment for an individual skin problem.

Smaller scars, suitable for non-invasive treatment – are acne scars or, for example, stretch marks. Treatment involves the use of a series of treatments that are tailored to the needs of the patient.

At Mandala Beauty Clinic we offer the following methods:

  • Carboxytherapy or mesotherapy with carbon dioxide
  • Fraxel fractional laser
  • Skin needling

Treatments are non-invasive, painless and have a visible effect after the first visit.

Bigger scars generally require surgical intervention. This usually involves cutting out the skin lesion and re-sewing it. In this case, after approx. one week the stitches are removed and the patient is instructed to protect the scars with prescribed pharmacological agents. If the scar is concave, transplantation of adipose tissue taken from another part of the patient’s body helps. Such a transplantation smooths the surface of the skin and restores its aesthetic appearance.

Medical micropigmentation

HOW IT’S DONE

The treatment involves minute particles of coloured pigment being placed mechanically below the surface of the skin to cover various types of skin imperfections. Its application is very broad. The most popular body parts that are subjected to the treatment:

  • Micropigmentation of the scalp – used in people with scars on the head or as a supplement to hair transplant. With individually selected pigments, the treatment hides hair loss caused by alopecia, alopecia areata or chemotherapy. The tattooed spots on the scalp imitate hair bulbs and visually thicken the hair.
  • Breast micropigmentation is used in women after mastectomy, breast reconstruction or augmentation, as well as in those suffering from vitiligo. It helps in the recreation of an areola thanks to which your breasts regain their natural look.
  • Scar camouflage – medical micropigmentation is used for various types of scars, resulting from surgeries, injuries, burns, caesarean section, skin lesions, as well as hemangiomas and stretch marks. Pigment placed below the surface of the skin smoothes out the colour of the skin, making the changes less visible.For many people this is a way to hide all sorts of skin defects or illnesses, which allows them to improve their self-esteem, regain self-confidence and often return to normal life after harsh experiences.

Dermatological consultation

In our office, we conduct dermatological consultations in the fields of:
– diagnosis and treatment of skin diseases (acne, rosacea, seborrhoeic dermatitis, allergies and alopecia);
– evaluation of skin lesions (dermoscopic diagnosis),
– qualification for treatments and procedures to delay and prevent skin ageing processes,
– skin care.

We also recommend further treatment: removal of broken capillaries, removal of fibrosis and surgical and laser removal of skin lesions.

Closing the capillaries on the face using electrocoagulation 


How it’s done

The method of electrocoagulation involves the use of alternating currents of high frequency. An impulse of current closes the blood vessels. The procedure is short, lasting approximately 15-20 minutes, and does not require anaesthesia. Following the procedure, the site may be irritated, which may persist for 2-3 days, but this usually disappears the next day.
The contraindications to electrocoagulation are: cancer, cardiovascular disorders, diabetes, pregnancy, and having a pacemaker. It is therefore advisable to perform the procedure in a professional doctor’s office where the expert will conduct a detailed interview with the patient.

Carboxytherapy Fenix

How it’s done

Carboxytherapy is, in other words, mesotherapy needle using carbon dioxide. The method uses the healing and regenerative effects of CO₂ by injecting it intradermally and subcutaneously, where no cosmetics are able to reach. The treatment stimulates the production of elastin and collagen. As a result, collagen fibres shrink and the skin is visibly firmer and more flexible. Additionally, the procedure delays the ageing process, increases blood and oxygen flow, thereby regenerating the skin. This is also a strong impetus for the body to build new blood vessels and delay the ageing process.

Indications

As a support during liposuction – it ensures lymphatic drainage and improves metabolism. Carbon dioxide fights fibrosis, thereby levelling, smoothing and improving skin elasticity.

Skin oxygenation – CO₂ enhances skin oxygenation and stimulates the formation of new blood vessels and blood circulation. Influences the lightening of the skin and imparting a fresh appearance.

Limb cramps – improved metabolism and oxygenation of the muscles positively affects these ailments.

Chronic venous insufficiency – carbon dioxide stimulates the microcirculation that oxygenates the vessels and cells. As a result, they strengthen and regenerate faster.

Circulatory disorders – carbon dioxide helps to neutralize the feeling of ‘heavy legs’ right from the first procedure. Improves blood circulation, oxygenation, rebuilds, strengthens vessels and cells.

Spider veins – carboxytherapy has great effects in the treatment of circulation problems – it stimulates the formation of new vessels while reducing the damaged ones.

Obesity – barotrauma during the administration of CO₂ damages fat cells. Weakened, they are reduced more easily, and the skin remains nourished and tightened.

Scars – their reduction due to carboxytherapy is painless and long-lasting. It is usually necessary to perform several treatments to the scar area in order to intensify the nutrition and synthesis of collagen and elastin.

Localized fatty tissue – carboxytherapy is recommended for people with unevenly distributed adipose tissue (sides, thighs, knees, buttocks, shoulders, stomach). The concentration of the therapy precisely in the treated area affects the efficiency of breaking up the adipose tissue.

Cellulite – an improvement of elasticity, elasticity of the skin occurs after the first treatment, because carboxytherapy is the only therapy that affects all factors concerned with the formation of the ‘orange peel’ syndrome.

Hand regeneration – dryness, harshness and flabby skin disappear due to fibroblast stimulation. Results are visible after the first treatment.

Stretch marks – intradermally injected carbon dioxide leads to the synthesis of collagen and elastin; the effect of disappearing stretch marks is quickly visible and long-lasting.

Lack of elasticity – the injection of carbon dioxide gives the body a boost to increase regeneration and production of collagen and elastin, which impacts our skin with the desired elasticity.

Skin loosening – skin loosening and loss of elasticity (after pregnancy or weight loss) is reduced by stimulating the nutritional processes and production of collagen.

Wrinkles – all kinds of wrinkles are smoothed out, and the effects are particularly visible in the case of wrinkles of the neck and on so-called crow’s feet.

Shadows under the eyes – treatment mainly involves the oxygenation of these parts of the face, so that the skin regains a radiant, healthy appearance. The effects persist for over 6 months.

Psoriasis – a series of carboxytherapy treatments – improves skin oxygenation in the scalp area. Improved blood circulation gets rid of psoriatic lesions.

Alopecia – carboxytherapy in combination with Mesotherapy Platelet Rich Plasma oxygenates and nourishes the scalp and stimulates hair growth.

Hair – improves blood circulation of the scalp, and thus the density of the hair, stops it from falling out. The hair regains a healthy and shiny appearance.

Fenix device used for carboxytherapy at Mandala Beauty Clinic allows for the precise and fast injection of carbon dioxide. Thus, the treatment is comfortable and risk-free to the patient. Fenix also allows for the injection of very sensitive places such as around the eyes and scalp.

Scarlet RF

HOW IT WORKS

Scarlet RF is a minimally invasive combination of a fractional laser, bipolar radio waves and a system of 25 electrodes in the for microneedles. The device ensures direct treatment of the epidermis and dermis, reaching the inner and outer layers of the skin (depth control precision between 0.5-3.5 mm). Thus the treatment takes place throughout the skin’s cross-section making it highly effective. At the same time, the patient is not exposed to side effects or long-term recovery. During the procedure, only minimal pain can occur, independent of the type of skin, with consecutive natural reddening that disappears after a few days.

Scarlet RF can also be used safely in the summer provided that the skin is appropriately protected after the procedure (UV creams are recommended during the 10 days following the treatment). It minimizes skin irritations on its surface, thanks to which redness is minimal, recovery is faster, and the method can also be used in sensitive areas around the mouth and eyes.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING PROCEDURE:

 

1. Skin firming, facial sharpening – V shape (smoothing out of the double chin and the effect of the so-called pouches).

2. Brightening by closing the pores and lightening the skin by stimulating fibroblasts.

3. Rejuvenation through stimulation of collagen production.

4. Acne skin regeneration and scar smoothing by frictional heat.

5. Effect on sebaceous glands – reduction of sebum secretion, elimination of skin pores.

6. The method is also used in the treatment of hyperhidrosis – fractional action reduces or completely eliminates excessive sweating.

 

Medical peels

How it WORKS

A medical peel consists of the application of properly selected chemicals onto the area, which results in exfoliation of the epidermis and superficial layers of the dermis. With these controlled lesions, skin regeneration is enhanced. The depth of the peel depends on the type of chemical used, the time of application prior to neutralization, the number of layers of the applied solution, the patient’s phototype and substances used before and after the peel. All these parameters are evaluated by the doctor according to the intended final effect. Chemical exfoliation can affect different skin levels. It can be very superficial, medium and deep.

In order to achieve satisfactory results, it is advisable to perform a series of treatments (usually 4 to 6 at 2-4 weeks intervals, with a single procedure’s time of approx. 30 minutes). After the peel, sunbathing and tanning is prohibited for at least 4 weeks. It is advisable to use sunscreen (a cream with UV 50+ filter). After the procedure, exfoliation may occur, its intensity depending on the type of chemical used. Peels may also be a good supplement or preparation for other medical aesthetic treatments – these combined treatments give the best results.

Types of medical peels in our clinic:

  • COSMELAN
  • TCA
  • RETINOL PEEL
  • PYRUVIC
  • ALMOND
  • SALICYLIC
  • GLYCOL

Lasers: Fraxel

How it works

Fractional laser treatment takes about 30 minutes and is based on the principle of light emission of an appropriate intensity. Its energy is absorbed through the skin and stimulates it to regenerate and correct imperfections.

Fraxel is used for:
reversing the effects of photoageing (caused by UV rays)

  • skin firming
  • stretch marks reduction
  • treatment of acne scars and postoperative scars (great results)
  • removal of wrinkles and skin lesions
  • reduction of excessive activity of sebaceous glands
  • skin texturing (including reduction of pores)
  • levelling dye changes, skin discoloration, melasma

Laser treatments are especially recommended for people over 35 years of age.

For the most satisfactory results, you should complete 3-4 sessions minimum, at 4-week intervals. However, effects are visible after the first treatment. Moreover, Fraxel can be combined successfully with other treatment improving skin appearance, such as Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP, Botox or hyaluronic acid.

Contraindications to the procedure may include: strong or fresh tan, pregnancy or breast feeding, vitiligo, psoriasis and other autoimmune diseases, as well as active herpes in the area subjected to the treatment. At least 6 months before surgery, administering of oral retinoids should be discontinued.

IPL hair removal

HOW IT’S DONE

The technology used in Mandala Beauty Clinic is safe and produces excellent results. The device converts light energy into heat that selectively produces the desired effect on the treated tissues, for example hair, without affecting the epidermis and surrounding tissues. Light pulses sent by the SmartPULS device damage hair follicles so they cannot produce new hair.

After a few treatments, you can permanently get rid of unwanted hair on different parts of the body. The procedures are painless, and there is no need for recovery. There are no visible changes in the skin caused by the IPL light. An extremely wide head makes the procedure itself very short.
