Aesthetic medicine is increasingly developing in the direction of non-invasive procedures and those that are minimally invasive.
A major role in this process is played by the appearance of lasers, which offer a wide range of treatments that maintain our face and body.
4D LASER FACE TIGHTENING
4D laser facial tightening is a new revolutionary method in facial rejuvenation. This non-invasive treatment works through the entire depth of the skin: part of the treatment is done on the inside of the oral cavity and part on the outside of the face. Part of the effect is seen immediately after the procedure, and part later, when the skin subsequently gradually tightens.
4D laser facelift, as the name says, consists of 4 different laser treatments.
Part of the treatment is done from the inside of the oral cavity and its task is to encourage the return of existing collagen in spirals and stimulate the formation of new collagen. This achieves immediate and subsequent skin tightening and improved elasticity. The other 3 laser treatments are done over the skin from the outside, and act to improve skin tone, stimulate skin tightening and reduce irregularities on the skin surface, and act as a mild exfoliator.
This treatment lasts up to 60 minutes, is painless, and after the treatment, the client can of course return immediately to daily activities. After the procedure, it is necessary to avoid sun exposure for a month, ie to use a cream with a protection factor of 50 plus.
If necessary, this treatment can be repeated at intervals of at least a month.
Epilation is a procedure of permanent removal of unwanted hair. There are three phases of hair growth, these are the growth phase, the resting phase, and the hair loss phase. The laser beam can destroy that hair that is in the growth phase, which is why more treatments are needed to destroy all the hair.
During the treatment, the laser beam is brought into contact with the skin, and it is absorbed mostly by melanin (pigment in the hair and skin). Absorption causes damage to the hair as well as damage to the hair manufacturer’s cells (if the hair is in the growth phase). In order to prevent damage to the surrounding tissue and burning due to the heating of the hair, we also use a device that cools the treated area of the skin.
Depending on the region of the body and the quality of the hair, this treatment is repeated several times at certain intervals. In this way, hair can be removed on all parts of the body.
After the procedure, it is necessary to avoid sun exposure for a month, ie to use a cream with a protection factor of 50 plus.
Dilated capillaries on the face and legs are a very common aesthetic problem. They most often appear on the face and legs, and genetics play a major role in their formation.
Laser removal gives the best results when removing capillaries and thinner veins. Here the laser beam acts on the hemoglobin in the red blood cells and thus destroys the treated capillary. Smaller capillaries disappear immediately, and larger ones take some time to disappear.
The final result is visible several months after the laser treatment. The number of treatments is individual, in most cases, 1-3 treatments are enough. To avoid the burning sensation caused by the laser during the treatment, we use a special device that blows cold air to the region being treated.
It is estimated that 90% of women in the world have cellulite. A sedentary lifestyle, unhealthy diet, reduced water intake, reduced physical activity, stress, are the main causes of cellulite.
The most common places on the body where cellulite develops are the thighs and buttocks, and it can also appear on other parts of the body. Cellulite is not necessarily related to obesity, it can also be had by people of normal body weight, even people who exercise 3 days a week or more.
Laser treatment can be used to remove cellulite. The treatment is painless, lasting depending on the body surface being treated, usually about 45 min. We work with the laser over the skin. This treatment achieves melting of cellulite and tightening of the skin. After the treatment, it is recommended to walk fast for half an hour. The treatment should be repeated 3 times at intervals of a month.
To treat stubborn cellulite as well as remove fat deposits, we recommend laser lipolysis or laser-assisted liposuction as surgical techniques.
LASER TATTOO REMOVAL AND HYPERPIGMENTATION
Although non laser tattoo removal methods are becoming increasingly popular, laser treatments are still something that most people turn to.
Currently, the most successful and best method for tattoo removal and skin hyperpigmentation is the laser method. No scars remain after this procedure. Now outdated tattoo removal options such as surgical excision or removal of the skin layer with a Thiersch knife leave visible scars.
It is important to use a special laser for laser tattoo removal and hyperpigmentation. During the procedure, a high temperature develops which breaks down the pigment while the surrounding tissue is spared. The pigment is later removed by the lymphatic system. It is possible to remove all tattoo colors with a laser.
In order to remove a tattoo with as few treatments as possible, it is essential to first prepare the tattoo for removal with a fractionated laser that does spot damage to the skin. After that, with the Q SWITCH laser, a certain extension (depending on the color to be removed) is applied to the pigment. During operation, we use a special device that blows cold air to the place of action of the laser so that the procedure is not uncomfortable.
It is not advisable to treat fresh tattoos, but one should wait 6-12 months. It is necessary to protect the treated area from the sun for the next month. When removing tattoos, depending on the type of tattoo and the colors, 3-10 treatments are needed for complete removal, which is repeated at intervals of at least a month.
When removing hyperpigmentation, one treatment is usually needed, sometimes two at intervals of at least a month.
LASER REMOVAL OF BENIGN SKIN GROWTHS
These growths are removed painlessly by laser, and local anesthesia is usually not needed. After removing the growth, a scab usually forms, which falls off after a few days, and no scars are visible on the skin.
LASER-SUPPORTED LIPOSUCTION OF THE CHIN AND TENSION OF THE LOWER THIRD OF THE FACE
This method is recommended for any person who has an accumulation of fatty tissue in the chin area and in whom the skin in the lower third of the face and neck is relaxed, but not so much that it is necessary to do a facelift.

This procedure is performed under local tumescent anesthesia. The laser works under the skin of the chin and dissolves excess fat. The skin in the lower region of the face is also tightened with a laser and subcutaneously. The procedure is painless. A compression brace around the neck and face is worn 3-5 days after the procedure. The final result is seen 3-6 months after the procedure.
LASER LIPOSUCTION AND LIPOLYSIS
A completely new form of liposuction that gives much better results than classic liposuction is when, in addition to liposuction, it acts with additional energy on adipose tissue and the inner part of the skin. This was achieved using a laser.
The procedure is performed under local tumescent, spinal, or general anesthesia, depending on the regions to be treated, and the agreement of the anesthesiologist, patient, and operator.
Part of the adipose tissue is taken out immediately, and part is dissolved in the body over the next 3 months. After the procedure, it is necessary to wear a compression corset for 2-4 weeks.
Recovery after laser liposuction is much faster compared to conventional liposuction, the patient can return to daily activities much earlier, and wearing a corset is shorter because the action of the laser on the skin causes it to tighten and it adapts to a new smaller volume of this procedure, 2-4 weeks compared to classic liposuction after which the corset is worn for 6-8 weeks.
The result after laser liposuction is a more natural appearance of the body, without bumps, because the laser dissolves fat, which is thus evenly removed from a particular region of the body.
LASER SWEAT ABLATION TREATMENT OF EXCESSIVE SWEATING IN THE ARMOR REGIONS (LASER SWEAT ABLATION)
Laser removal of sweat glands in the axillary region is a method to eliminate excessive sweating in these regions. The procedure has been performed for fifteen years in the world, and we have been doing it since 2008, and we are also the educational center for this procedure.
Before the procedure, we perform a test with iodine and starch, which locates the glands in the axillary regions, marks them, and begins laser treatment. From three points, the laser beam enters under the skin in the axillary region, thus removing about 80-85% of the sweat glands.
The procedure is performed under local tumescent anesthesia. By repeating the test with iodine and starch after the procedure, the result is immediately visible.
LASER VEIN SURGERY (EVLA)
The classic operation of a varicose saphenous vein on the leg is one in which the vein is removed by stripping – tearing the entire vein and postoperative wearing of compression stockings. The operation is quite painful in the postoperative course, and recurrences are 15 to 20%.
Laser surgery consists of the introduction of a laser fiber into the area of the varicose vein and its welding due to the action of laser energy with high temperature. The procedure is performed under local tumescent anesthesia, and after the operation, one walks immediately and can continue with daily activities and work the next day.
Elastic compression stockings are worn only during the day for 3-4 weeks. Recurrences according to world statistics are 1-2%, which is significantly less than with classical vein surgery, and these are the main advantages of laser surgery compared to classical.
