For firmer contours and a vital and youthful appearance – without surgery

Wrinkle Treatment with Botox (Botulinumtoxin)

Mimic wrinkles can form due to frequently repeated activity of the facial muscles in certain everyday situations …

Screwing up your eyes, wrinkling your forehead or frowning – this movement of the facial muscles causes expression lines and so-called crow’s feet over the course of time. Botox injections can weaken the activity of the muscles in these regions, thus relaxing the skin. The skin, wrinkles and lines become smoother. Botox is generally well tolerated. The full effect is seen after about 10 to 14 days and can last for up to 6 months. There is almost no downtime and patients can return to everyday activities immediately.

Wrinkle Treatment with Hyaluronic Acid

All day, every day our skin is exposed to harmful factors. Sunlight and the wrong nutrition can cause the skin to lose its vitality and elasticity over time …

The progressive decrease in the production the body’s own hyaluronic acid results in a loss of elasticity in the skin. Wrinkle treatment with hyaluronic acid has hardly any side-effects, is very well tolerated and is excellent for the restoration of volume.
As hyaluronic acid is present in the human body in almost identical form, allergy testing is not necessary. Hyaluronic acid fillers are specifically suitable to fill in deeper defects, nose and lip wrinkles and for modelling or accentuating the shape of the lips. A smoothing and filling effect is already visible during the treatment. The effect lasts for between 6 and 12 months, depending on the dose. There is almost no downtime. Patients can immediately resume everyday activities.

Laser Treatments in Frankfurt and Zürich

Innovative laser technology (e.g. IPL – Intense Pulsed Light) enables exact treatment of small areas of skin …

New skin cells are formed, and the skin appears fresh and firm again. This method has almost no side-effects, which means no downtime.
Special applications for laser technology:
Wrinkle treatments for the face, neck, décolleté, hands
Spider Veins / VaricoseVeins
Rosacea (red veins)
Acne scars

Lifting without Surgery, using Ultrasound: Ultherapy

During Ultherapy the deeper structures in the different skin layers are treated with controlled heat – the effect is similar to that of a surgical facelift …

Direct stimulation of the deeper skin layers with concentrated ultrasound energy promotes the production of new and more elastic collagen fibres. A gentle treatment for the face, neck, décolleté without damaging the surface of the skin – lifting without surgery. For radiant and fresh skin and a firmer facial contour.
Duration of one session: between 60 and 90 minutes – depending on the area treated. No recovery time is necessary. After treatment, patients can immediately go back to work or sporting activities. With just one treatment the regeneration process is set in motion. The improvement in the skin’s appearance can continue even 6 months after treatment. Depending on the result, a supplementary treatment may be advisable.

Vampire Lifting – Skin Rejuvenation with Autologous Blood

During this beauty treatment from the USA – also known as plasma lifting – a small quantity of the patient’s blood is taken …

The blood plasma is enriched with the patient’s own growth hormones and injected into the skin with fine microneedles. This leads to a renewal of the capillary vessels in the skin and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin for new connective tissue. Wrinkles are noticeably reduced. For increased volume and greater elasticity in the skin. The therapy is especially suitable for the face, neck and décolleté. Duration of the treatment session: 30 minutes. A small increase in volume is already noticeable directly after treatment. The full scale of the improvement is visible after 2 – 3 months. Three to four treatments are recommended, then the effect can be refreshed once yearly.

2-in-1 Treatments with Autologous Fat

Dr Petra Berger is specialised in treatments with autologous fat. The body’s own fatty tissue is especially suitable for building up volume in order to smoothen wrinkles and scars, as well as to accentuate the contours of the lips …

The fatty tissue is taken from an inconspicuous part of the body. Alternatively, it is suctioned for aesthetic reasons and re-used for lipofilling – a wonderful 2-in-1 effect. The fat is processed and re-injected into the body in order to accentuate certain contours. This method is also suitable for changing the shape of the breast without using silicone. With autologous fat, an especially aesthetic result can be achieved in breast augmentation. Many patients do not want to have silicone implants or know that their body does not tolerate this foreign material, while some prefer to have an optical and haptical effect which is as harmonious as possible.
The good tolerability of autologous fat is countered by the small disadvantage that the effect does not last as long as that of the artificial substance. There is no allergic reaction and infection occurs only rarely.
We will be glad to advise you confidentially about this gentle beauty method which has a “push-up” effect at the same time. For firmer, more beautiful contours.
