The Euroclinic Cosmetic Dermatology Department caters for men and women who seek individualized services that fully meet their needs. Staffed by highly trained medical and nursing professionals and equipped with the most innovative technology, it not only offers beauty services (Botox, mesotherapies, peeling, etc), but also comprehensive packages for various cosmetic problems, such as excessive hair growth, local fat and more.
Alexandrite Laser Hair Removal
The new Super Hair Removal technology cuts treatment time by half and eliminates any side-effects.
The Euroclinic is equipped with the innovative Soprano ICE system, the next-generation hair removal laser, designed to remove unwanted hair faster, more comfortably, more effectively and in as fewer sessions as possible.
The Euroclinic Cosmetic Dermatology Department may offer comprehensive and effective solutions to the problem of hair growth, working closely with the Hospital’s Endocrinology Department.
The patented In-motion technology makes it possible for the Soprano ICE to target even the most sensitive parts of the body.
The Soprano ICE hair removal laser combines a number of technological innovations to provide clinically proven results, offering a unique experience and the most effective hair reduction treatment ever.
The use of laser technology for hair removal is a popular cosmetic treatment that can be applied to any part of the body; it is completely safe and it is nowadays considered the most effective method for gradual hair reduction.
This is achieved because the melanin in the hair follicle absorbs the laser beam, is destroyed and can no longer produce hairs.
The Soprano ICE technology is superior because it is:
- Painless: The advanced ICE tech cold sapphire technology cools the skin during treatment. The ICE tech cold sapphire tip minimizes the risk of burns on the skin and contact cooling increases comfort, making treatments virtually painless.
- Safe: It is FDA cleared and can be safely used on dark skin types. It may also be safely performed during summer or on tanned skins.
- Fast: Due to the new Super Hair Removal technology and the high speeds, sessions are completed in half the time than with conventional Alexandrite laser.
- Enjoyable: Contact application offers painless hair removal, without the typical smell of burning hair.
- Effective: Thanks to the ICE tech cold sapphire technology, it is possible to safely increase the power so as to target thin and light-colored hair that is usually left behind after conventional Alexandrite laser treatment.
Cryolipolysis for Local Fat
Fat freezing brings the revolution in non-surgical methods for treating localized fat.
The Euroclinic is equipped with the innovative Cryolipo II system, which offers a comprehensive and effective way for targeting localized fat. Working closely with healthcare professionals from other Hospital departments – such as endocrinologists, dieticians, etc – the Cosmetic Dermatology Department offers comprehensive solutions for non-invasive localized reduction of fat.
- What is a cryolipolysis?
It is a non-invasive method for treating local fat permanently, by exposing the fat cells to controlled freezing conditions (at -9o C for 1 hour). This prolonged cooling causes fat cell apoptosis (cell death) and the metabolic products that are released in this process are progressively eliminated over 3 months, when the optimum results can be observed.
- How is it performed?
Once the area to be treated has been marked, a special membrane is placed on the area. The device handpiece contains a suction mechanism that draws and cools the skin for about 1 hour at a steady temperature, without affecting the surrounding tissue. The area is then massaged and the patient may leave straightaway, without encountering any problems.
- Where it is applied?
It can be applied on any area where there is adequate accumulation of localized fat, e.g. tummy, hips, love handles, waist, back, arms, etc.
- Can anyone benefit?
The method works best on areas where adequate fat deposits remain, even after efforts to decrease one’s total body weight. However, it is not a weight-loss method.
- Who are excluded?
The method is not suitable for expectant and breastfeeding mothers, as well as individuals with a history of allergy to cold, cryoglobulinemia, autoimmune diseases, malignancies, skin disorders, blood coagulation disorders, local problems (varicose veins, hernias, etc). In all events, the area chosen and the suitability of the case are examined by the attending physician, ensuring the greatest benefit and guaranteed safety.
- Is it painful?
It is a well tolerated procedure, whereby patients feel an odd pulling sensation for the first 10 minutes due to the negative pressure. But the sensation soon fades and they can read a book or even fall asleep until the end of the session. It is possible to feel a tingling/prickling sensation, deep pain and skin numbness in the area in the next few days, but the symptoms can subside with painkillers. Local bruising due to the negative pressure from the handset also fades quickly.
- Is the treatment repeated?
The treatment consists of a single session for each local fat zone. The Cryolipo device enables us to accurately set the parameters for fat freezing, so a single session is quite effective. The targeted area will reach optimum results in 3 months. After that, a repeat session may be performed if the patient wishes further fat reduction. It is possible to treat more than one area at a time.
- Are there any side-effects?
There are no serious side-effects. However, some patients may experience bruising due to the negative pressure. In this case, the bruising subsides in 3-7 days. On rare occasions, a transient loss of sensation may occur in the treated area, which lasts about 1 to 3 weeks.
Cosmetic Face and Body Treatments
Using recognized products at suitable doses, it is possible to soften the action of certain facial muscles and prevent the creation of wrinkles. It is recommended for frown lines, the forehead and the area around the eyes (crow’s feet).
Working with safe and recognized products by leading manufacturers, biocompatible hyaluronic acid is introduced in the area that needs to be corrected from wrinkles. The choice of the product depends on the area and the depth of the wrinkle. The same applies for the action of the product. It is suitable for nasolabial furrows, cheek enhancement and lip correction/enhancement.
Through multiple superficial injections, the skin is injured superficially, which stimulates collagen production so as to regenerate the skin. In addition, small quantities of hyaluronic acid and vitamins are injected in the skin for better results. The procedure must be repeated at least 3 times, every 28-30 days.
It is performed to treat acne, melasma, discoloration, aging, drab skin, etc.
Platelet-rich plasma is used from the patient to treat aging, black circles, the area around the eyes, fine wrinkles and even hair loss. Peripheral blood is collected from the patient and after being specially processed, it is infused into the skin subcutaneously using the mesotherapy technique. So essentially, the growth factors from the patient’s platelets stimulate skin rejuvenation. The procedure must be repeated at least 3 times, every 28-30 days.
Medical Infrastructure & Technology
The Euroclinic is equipped with the Cryolipo II system, which is the latest technology in non-invasive local fat reduction. Cryolipo II has two treatment handsets, which reduces treatment time. The two handsets make is possible to effectively treat fat in different parts of the body or in bodies with different body mass index. The greatest advantage of the Cryolipo II system is that it enables technicians to accurately set the parameters for fat freezing steadily at -9o C, minimizing pain and offering excellent aesthetic results.
The Athens Euroclinic is also equipped with the Soprano ICE system, which is the next generation in laser hair removal. It emits laser at different wavelengths, allowing dermatologists to use it on a wide range of skin types, ensuring proven and effective hair reduction in just a few sessions, fast and painlessly.
