Our experienced physicians offer modern and scientifically based treatments to help you and your skin look younger and better. Among our treatments you will find microneedling, peeling, wrinkle treatments, hair removal and skin rejuvenation.

Wrinkle treatment

Botulinum toxin (Botox Type A)

We use Botulinum toxin (Botox Type A) to treat facial wrinkles. After injection with a thin needle into a muscle, Botox works by causing the muscle to relax and smoothing the skin attached to it. The result is much younger looking skin.

Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid is a polysaccharide produced by the body, and a natural component of our skin. It binds water to the skin, thus increasing volume and firmness. We have had excellent results with sterile, non animal-based hyaluronic acid, which causes little or no allergic reactions. This treatment is especially suited to filling deep, persistent wrinkles and scars. The wrinkles are smoothed as a result, restoring the skin volume lost during aging. Hyaluronic acid is also used to treat contour defects and as a lip filler.

Please note that, except under exceptional circumstances, aesthetic consultations and treatments are not covered by the swiss medical insurance. After an initial examination and discussion with the dermatologist, you will receive a cost estimate for the treatment.

Wrinkle treatment

Hair removal

Hair removal with intense pulsed light (IPL)

IPL is an ultra modern light-based therapy which has been used successfully for many years to remove unwanted hair. The process works by means of high-intensity pulses of filtered light which are absorbed by the pigment melanin in the roots of the hair. This heats the root to the point where the hair cannot grow anymore, without damaging neighboring tissue.

Please note that, except under exceptional circumstances, aesthetic consultations and treatments are not covered by the swiss medical insurance. After an initial examination and discussion with the dermatologist, you will receive a cost estimate for the treatment.

Hair removal

Skin rejuvenation

Intense Pulsed Light for skin rejuvenation

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is being used to make skin look younger in a process known as “photo-skin rejuvenation”. This is a non-invasive procedure to improve the structure, quality, color and overall health of the skin. Conditions which can be treated include: vascular lesions, redness of the skin, age spots, freckles, and discoloration. The wavelengths used in IPL stimulate the growth of collagen under the skin, making it tauter and reducing the size of the pores. Treatment is particularly recommended for face, neck, décolleté and hands.

Please note that, except under exceptional circumstances, aesthetic consultations and treatments are not covered by the swiss medical insurance. After an initial examination and discussion with the dermatologist, you will receive a cost estimate for the treatment.

Skin rejuvenation

Micro Needling

During the microneedling treatment the skin is treated with a roller with very fine, short needles. The length of the needles is variable and is selected by the dermatologist based on sensitivity, skin thickness and the indication for treatment

When penetrating into the uppermost skin layer, the epidermis, certain skin receptors are irritated – thereby causing a small injury. In order to “repair” the skin, more collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid are released. These are essential for the elasticity and strength of our connective tissue. Through this, the natural, bodyspecific mechanisms for skin regeneration are activated.

Please ask our dermatologists for more information. The treatment is not covered by the Swiss insurance.

Micro Needling

Plastic Surgery

What is Plastic Surgery?

Plastic surgery is a specialty of surgery, which was developed from the need to restore physical defects and malformations. These can already be present at birth, the consequences of an accident or they can be a consequence of an operative procedure in the sense of tumor removal (skin, chest, facial bone, etc.). The techniques of the plastic surgeon have been further developed to make such defects as inconspicuous as possible and to give the patient a more natural look.

Plastic or aesthetic surgery?

The majority of people believe the plastic surgery deals mainly with the improvement of the appearance. This is not true, because aesthetic surgery makes up less than half of the plastic surgery. Nevertheless, the techniques used are the same or at least very similar, since they are mainly based on the laying and shifting of tissue. For example, silicone implants can be used for breast reconstruction after breast removal in breast cancer, and similarly in aesthetic surgery for breast augmentation. The skin can be tautened in a facelift or lifted by a facial paralysis or removal of a tumor of the salivary gland. All plastic surgeons have a common background: a solid training in reconstructive and aesthetic plastic surgery.

What can plastic surgery do for you in arththaus?

The range of operations and treatments that our plastic surgeon can offer is large, as he deals with various tissues and organs. The most common procedures the following: protruding ears (ear plastics), eyelid tightening, nasal correction, face lift, breast enlargement, scar correction, removal of moles, congenital melanocytic nevi, burns and various physical injuries, but also more.

Let our plastic surgeon advise you. We would like to point out that consultations and treatments are not always reimbursed by the Swiss health insurance companies. After a diagnosis and a consultation with the patient, a cost estimate is prepared and if necessary we contact the relevant health insurance company.

Peeling

What is Peeling?

We differentiate between two kinds of peelings: surface peeling with glycolic acid (fruit-acid peelings) and mid-depth peelings with Jessner’s solution and TCA (trichloracetic acid), the so-called “Monheit peel”. Excellent results can be obtained with surface peelings, which is why recommend these in particular.

Please note that, except under exceptional circumstances, aesthetic consultations and treatments are not covered by the swiss medical insurance. After an initial examination and discussion with the dermatologist, you will receive a cost estimate for the treatment.
