What areas of the body can be treated?
Treat unwanted hair growth on all body areas including: upper lip, cheeks, chin, neck, breasts, stomach, arms, shoulders, bikini area, legs and back.

How does hair removal work?
Hair follicles are precisely targeted and destroyed using the revolutionary elōs combination of bipolar radio frequency and laser energies.

Is hair removal with Motif LHR right for me?
Both men and women can achieve permanent hair reduction on almost all body areas. Only elōs is proven to remove lighter coloured hair, on all skin tones. To achieve a successful outcome on lighter hair colours, more treatments may be needed compared to darker hair colours. When can I expect to see results? Hair growth is reduced after each treatment. The number of treatments required will be based on your hair colour and type, body area, and skin tone.

Does it hurt?
The new Motif LHR treatment is a virtually pain-free treatment. Cooling of the skin surface, as well as constant measurement of the skin’s resistance, ensure safety and comfort during treatment. This is a no-downtime procedure. Patients can return to normal activities immediately after treatment.

Carboxytherapy

Carboxytherapy was discovered in the Royal Spas of France in the 1930’s when bathing in the pools of carbon dioxide-rich waters was shown to speed wound healing.
In 2002 a study showed that in 80% of patients with critical lower limb ischemia, by bathing in CO2 rich water twice a day for ten minutes, doctors were able to salvage their legs, which were ulcerated and even gangrenous.

Carboxytherapy infuses CO² just beneath the skin’s surface; the body interprets this as an oxygen deficit and responds by increasing blood flow and growth factors such as VEGF (Vascular endothelial growth factor). This provides a surge of oxygen and nutrients to the treated area and improves circulation, resulting in cell restoration. Increased oxygen concentration also improves the water retention or oedema in the area.

For a dermal effect which reduces fine lines, wrinkles and stretch marks, this increased blood flow stimulates collagen, which will soften fine wrinkles and decreases dark circles under the eye.

Many are drawn to the concept of carboxytherapy as it is considered natural, after all, carbon dioxide is found in our bodies anyway, and it won’t be sticking around for long. It’s non-allergenic and nontoxic in low concentrations. Carbon dioxide has been used for a long time for injecting inside the abdominal cavity during laparoscopic surgeries, as a safe way to expand the abdominal cavity for better visualisation and easier access. Even if a blood vessel is nicked during carboxytherapy it is still safe, as CO2 would not cause an air embolism at such low doses, and it is actually injected into the bloodstream in certain heart procedures.

Carboxytherapy causes vasodilation, regulates the circulation and causes new blood vessel formation. It also improves metabolism, which translates into more efficient elimination of waste products. Blood influx also brings in wound repair factors and growth factors; collagen and elastin production is stimulated. Basically, injecting more superficially leads to skin rejuvenation (good for wrinkles, scars, acne scars, stretch marks, under-eye circles, and overall better feeling and looking, tighter skin), while deeper injection leads to lipolysis (good for treating cellulite and body contouring). The histology of the subcutaneous tissue after carboxytherapy shows that fat cells actually break down after an injection while leaving vasculature and connective tissue unharmed. There is also improvement of skin elasticity. Benefits: carboxytherapy is a simple, quick, outpatient procedure that causes minimal discomfort, has no downtime whatsoever, and gives impressive results. Side effects: if done by a skilled physician, side effects are quite rare. It is noteworthy that CO2 has antiseptic properties of its own, which lowers any risk of infection/inflammation. The redness that follows injection is expected, due to the increased blood flow and does not last long. Bruising is expected especially in the arms and legs, and those usually disappear in about a week.

Facial Injections

MUSCLE RELAXERS
A safe, registered medicine is used to smooth lines produced by muscle contraction. It is injected relatively superficially in minute non-toxic quantities and helps to relax muscles for 4 to 6 months. It also blocks the action of sweat glands, which is why it is useful for treating excessive sweating (Hyperhidrosis). Muscle relaxing injections are useful for reducing horizontal and vertical frown lines in the forehead, as well as ‘crow’s feet’ around the eyes, ‘bunny lines’ at the top of the nose and lines around the mouth (peri-oral lines). They are also useful for lifting the brow, thereby opening the eyes and giving a fresher, younger look and may be used to prevent the corners of the mouth from sagging, to reduce a gummy smile, lift the tip of the nose, reduce nasal flaring, treat muscular lines in the neck (platysmal bands), reduce irregular dimpling of the chin and correct asymmetrical facial movement. Medical indications of these injections include the treatment of bruxism (teeth-grinding), chronic migraines and hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating under the arms and on the hands).

DERMAL FILLERS
The Juvederm® range of dermal fillers used in the practice all contains highly cross-linked hyaluronic acid (Volbella®, Volift® and Voluma®). The filler contains a smooth gel which is a synthetic form of complex sugar molecules (mucopolysaccharides) naturally present in your body. It produces a natural, predictable and long-lasting result. The effect is registered to last for 1 to 2 years, depending on which filler in the range is used. The effect can be reversed with an injectable reversal agent should this be necessary.
It is a relatively painless procedure as the product contains a local anesthetic and the most common side effects are swelling and bruising, which can be minimised by correct product choice and placement, and careful planning. Dermal Fillers are used to fill lines and depressions in the forehead, around the eyes, mouth, nose, temples and to fill the lips. They are used to restore a youthful volume and lift to the cheeks, as well as reducing the jowls and enhancing the chin, eyebrows, and nose. They can fill, lift and contour the face in a beautiful, natural way. Before and after your injectable treatment Stop all aspirin, anti-inflammatories, vitamins, omega 3 and herbal supplements 5 to 7 days before your treatment in order to limit bruising and bleeding. Do not touch the area, lie down, do exercise, put on makeup or drink alcohol for 6 hours after any facial injections.

Medical Skincare

Medical skincare involves skin health check-ups, holistic treatment of common skin conditions like acne and eczema as well as cryotherapy, biopsy or surgical removal of skin lesions like moles, sunspots, and warts.

CRYOTHERAPY
Cryotherapy is the application of liquid nitrogen using a medical instrument to precisely freeze unwanted skin lesions. The treated area undergoes a ‘frost-bite’ reaction and will blister and come off within 2 weeks. Sometimes repeated treatments are necessary, like in the case of warts, and especially plantar warts.

AESTHETIC SKINCARE
Aesthetic skin care includes skin analysis, prescription medication, product recommendation, medical peels and Dermapen™ treatments in order to achieve beautiful, healthy, blemish-free skin.

CHEMICAL PEELS
Chemical peels superficial peels (glycolic and lactic acid) are useful for improving the texture and quality of the skin.

EASY TCA PEELS
Easy TCA peels are performed to treat deep pigmentation, acne scars and general ageing on the face, neck, décolleté, hands and arms. Usually, a course of 4 peels over a period of 6 weeks is recommended. The down time involves moderate peeling on day 4 to 6 after the peel and can be timed to have a limited impact on your daily routine.

DERMAPEN™
Dermapen™ is a medical skin micro-needling device that assists in skin rejuvenation and treats scarring and pigmentation by stimulating your skin’s own collagen formation. A course of treatments may be prescribed to treat a specific skin concern and 3 to 4 treatments a year will keep your skin healthy and glowing!
