Ceccerreli

Ceccarelli is a lipolytic solution which is injected into certain areas of the body which acts on the fat cells and causes a process of natural fat cell death.

It is a “spot treatment’ that works on stubborn fatty areas of the body and is not used as a weightloss solution.


Laser Hair Removal

Remove unwanted hair faster, with less discomfort and more reliably

You may be surprised to learn that virtually your entire body is covered with hair. Because most of this hair is fine and pale, it usually isn’t visible to the naked eye.

Hair type

But when darker, courser hair appears in places which may make you uncomfortable like on the face, neck, abdomen, breasts, legs or underarms in women or on the shoulders, chest and back of men, it may be time to consider Laser Hair Removal.

Lighter, Grey and blond hair can also be safely removed with the Laser after it has been treated with a product which is specifically used for this purpose.

How is the procedure performed?

The system emits near-infrared laser light that is absorbed by the pigment located in the hair follicle. The laser is pulsed or turned on, for only a fraction of a second. The duration of each pulse is just long enough to damage the follicle, while the system’s unique patented contact-cooling hand piece, the ChillTip, helps protect the skin by conductive cooling during the laser energy delivery.

Is the procedure safe?

The Lumenis® and Lightsheer® DUET laser hair removal system safely and effectively treats all skin types (Fitzpatrick Skin Types 1 – VI).

Slight discomfort may be experienced during each laser pulse and red and sensitive skin may be experienced for about 24 hours after treatment. The patented ChillTip provides continuous contact cooling of the epidermis for maximum safety and comfort.

Furthermore the use of our Zimmer Cooler pre, during and post treatment dramatically reduces the discomfort associated with this treatment.

How long does the procedure take?

The laser beam only works on actively growing hair follicles at the time of the treatment – hair will continue to grow from follicles which are not active at the time of the treatment, therefore a course of treatments is required before the area is fully clear of hair. Treatment sessions may last anywhere from a few minutes to an hour or more depending on the size of the area being treated.


Laser Leg Vein & Sclerotherapy

Discover the benefits of Sclerotherapy & NDYAG Laser

Both men and women suffer from unsightly leg veins which can be treated with the NDYAG Laser, Sclerotherapy or a combination of both.

Spider veins which are small, dilated, superficial veins on the legs are a common problem, particularly in women after pregnancy. These unwanted blood vessels often occur as an inherited tendency, or may be part of the aging process.

Large varicose veins are most often treated surgically. But certain small superficial veins, called telangiectasias, are best treated with Sclerotherapy or Laser.

How is the procedure performed?

During a Sclerotherapy laser leg vein treatment, larger veins are usually treated first. A sclerosing solution is injected into the vein with a micro-needle. The solution causes the vein to turn white and then gradually disappear.

How long does a treatment take?

A typical laser leg vein treatment lasts from 30 – 60 minutes. Approximately 3-4 treatments are generally required for optimal results. Micropore is placed securely onto each injection site immediately after treatment and patients will be asked to ensure that legs remain elevated for the evening. No excessive exercise is permitted for 24 hours post treatment.

What results can I expect?

A noticeable improvement can be observed after several treatments. It is important to note “touch-up” treatments may be required from time to time as new spider veins appear.


Mesohair

A treatment to stimulate hair growth and repair damaged hair

Mesohair is used for the bio stimulation of hair follicles. With the use of a meso needle adapter, the skin of the scalp is punctured whilst injecting the mesohair solution.

Mesohair is particularly rich in vitamin B which prevents hair loss and regulates sebum secretion and dandruff caused by the build up of cellular debris which asphyxiates the hair follicles. Graying is also reduced by Vitamin B.

Dr Niemann prefers Filorga NCTF® 135 HA, an anti-aging mesotherapy product range composed of 53+1 active ingredients that enable poly revitalization and deep hydration of skins lacking brightness, tonus, elasticity or firmness.

Mesohair treatments are particularly recommended:

  • Treat non-androgenic alopecia.
  • Repair hair prematurely damaged by environmental irritants (sun, pollution, diet, medication, etc.).
  • Stimulate hair growth and health.
  • Treat female hair loss.
  • Eliminate dandruff and seborrhea.
  • Create a healthy environment for hair transplants.
  • Treat thin and/or devitalized hair.

How many treatments are required?

Treatment protocol includes a treatment every 2 weeks for the first 3 treatments and thereafter once a month for 3 months.
