Scar Removal

A scar is the body’s natural way of healing and replacing lost or damaged skin. A scar is usually composed of fibrous tissue.

Our Aesthetic Practitioners will advise you on all possible treatments and outcomes, depending on the type of scar. Many factors will be involved in the degree of healing of your particular scar. Some scars can take more than a year to show improvement. The best clinical outcome is to reduce the colour and texture of a scar. A multifaceted approach works well to untether scarring. Scars can be softened but cannot be removed completely.

• PRP

Slender Wonder Medical Weightloss Program

Only Slender Wonder accredited doctors that are trained by the organisation are allowed to prescribe and distribute the programme.

This safe and effective weight loss programme has evolved over 40 years with tens of thousands of patients being treated successfully in South Africa.

The programme is based on treating low leptin levels and has three components:

a low GI eating plan
supplements in the form of capsules
a series of injections

The injections bring the leptin levels back into balance and help rid the body of “abnormal” fat in a safe and controlled way.

Fat Freezing

These small areas of fat don’t seem to warrant a surgical procedure and losing abdominal fat and back fat through diet and exercise is practically impossible for many of us.

With patented built-in safety measures, CoolSculpting™ is a cold-based, non-surgical, body contouring treatment that is FDA cleared and has the most medical approvals worldwide. This procedure offers a safe, pain-free, and effective way to reduce the fat layer of selected areas by 20 to 40% without the need for an anaesthetic or pain medication.

This process is called Cryolipolysis (cold lipolysis). The sub-zero temperatures cause fat cells to die. The cells are then absorbed and then flushed away by the body over the next few months leaving the patient sleeker. The average fat layer reduction of 20% was observed two months after the procedure. This procedure is definitely an option for patients who don’t want to go the liposuction route and is almost painless!

A single treatment is usually enough for each love handle but a larger beer belly or flaps under the arms might require two treatments. Each selected area takes approximately one hour and as this procedure is non-invasive, patients can return to normal activities immediately, the perfect treatment for a lunch break! Changes may be noticed as quickly as three weeks after treatment and will experience the most dramatic results after two months.

The “Treatment to Transformation” technique achieves better results on larger patients. Treatments are planned in two or three stages, with initial treatments aimed at de-bulking large areas of fat, and subsequent treatments being used to create curves and better shape.

New applicators in SA allow us to reduce fat under the chin and contour the neck. We are also able to treat saddlebags for the first time, and is a very exciting addition to the CoolSculpting range of treatments, especially as this is an area that is particularly resistant to both exercise and dieting. This applicator can also be used successfully over tummies without significant bulges to help create a six-pack effect.

Synergie Cellulite Massage

Synergie helps smooth and sculpt your problem areas. This FDA-approved machine uses vacuum massage technology, which gently combines suction and pressure to increase the metabolism and release the fluids from fat cells that cause cellulite.

Synergie treatment programs consist of two to three treatments a week. The treatment is performed over a body stocking and takes about 40 minutes. Many clients find the treatment very relaxing and often fall asleep during their massage. Courses are sold in 10 and 20 treatment sessions. Once the treatment starts, cellulite detoxification also starts. Drinking a lot of water will accelerate lymphatic drainage too.

We recommend that once you have completed your course of Synergie treatments, you continue with monthly sessions for maintenance to continue to detoxify the body and release fluids.

Synergie treatments are also recommended for pre and post-Lipo-Suction & CoolSculpting.

Studies show that 91% of patients show a marked reduction in cellulite after a treatment program.

Ultherapy | HIFU Skin Lifting

A quick, effective non-surgical face-lift using Ultrasound technology.

HIFU™ tightens, pulls and lifts those problematic areas – giving the appearance of a face-lift – without any surgery or downtime!

Video Ulthera™ is the only skin rejuvenation procedure that uses ultrasound imaging and therapy. Its established technology makes it both safe and incredibly effective. Results include firmer, tighter, more fit-looking skin in areas of the face (saggy eyes, cheeks) and neck and an overall refreshed appearance as well!

As with sonograms, an image is projected onto a screen that both you and the medical practitioner can see. The sound waves then deliver small, controlled amounts of energy into the deep layers of skin and soft tissue while sparing the upper layers. Your skin’s response to the energy is to contract slightly right away, and then stimulate the growth of new collagen over time. A gradual tightening occurs, ultimately resulting in a natural, beneficial lift of facial skin tissue.

The procedure has an excellent safety profile, although painful it is tolerated without the need for an anaesthetic, and as sessions are only 30 minutes long the patient can return to his or her daily routine immediately. The only minor after-effects the patient might experience is the skin may appear a bit flushed or puffy immediately after the treatment, but any redness should disappear in a matter of hours.

Ultrasound therapy, trusted by doctors and expectant mothers everywhere for decades now adds a new dimension to aesthetic medicine and Laserderm’s patients were the first in South Africa to benefit from this incredible new procedure.
