Modern FDA Approved Medical Skin Treatments by Dr. Nema
Best for: Skin Health and Boosting Glow
Clear + Brilliant is a gentle fraxel laser that was FDA-approved in 2011. Its application is meant to rejuvenate skin by addressing early signs of facial ageing, sun damage, tone, texture, and can even minimise pore size.
Clear + Brilliant laser creates millions of microscopic treatment zones in the upper layers of skin, which in turn stimulates collagen production and removes dead cells. This promises to result in refreshed and healthier-looking skin.
Clear + Brilliant instills effective brightening and an improved complexion without interruption of daily activities. Redness in the treatment areas lasts no more than a few hours - versus days or weeks by other devices. The aftercare is also relatively simple and uncomplicated. Dr Nema recommends a gentle hydrating cleanser, a broad spectrum SPF and hyaluronic serum post procedure.
MICRONEEDLING INFUSION FACIAL
The microneedling infusion facial stimulates collagen production and improves texture by needling the skin via tiny gold-plated needles that deliver a customised cocktail of neuromodulators such as Botox, hyaluronic acid, and platelets growth factors. This treatment is perfect if you're looking to shrink pores, eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, and give the skin a more plump, refreshed look. Results are seen within few days and lasts 4-6 months.
What is Profhilo? Its is commonly known as an injectable moisturiser but in fact it is so much more than that. Profhilo is the purest form of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) on the market. Profhilo acts as a hydrator rather than a filler. Over a few weeks, collagen and elastin production is stimulated, producing a secondary effect of skin tightening. This is useful because the level of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid in the skin rapidly drops from the age of 30, resulting in signs of ageing such as fine lines, wrinkles and lacklustre skin.
Dr Nema recommends Profhilo for its high concentration of Hyaluronic Acid - 64mg in 2ml. Profhilo is injected into the dermis under the skin and is minimally invasive. Most popular and important treatable skin areas include face, neck, hands and decollate.
REVIVE - SKIN REVITALISER
Belotero® Revive is a next-generation, injectable hyaluronic acid designed to rejuvenate the quality of skin and revitalise the early signs of sun damage. Revive contains Glycerol - one of the most hydrating substances and a natural component of our skin. The combination of Glycerol and Hyaluronic Acid creates a lasting moisturising effect on the skin, as it promotes water absorption from the dermis to the upper layers of the skin – providing moisture from the inside out.

HIFU-THE WORLD LEADING ULTRASOUND LIFT
High Intensity Focused Ultrasound is a non-invasive, non-surgical device that tightens the face and body for a youthful complexion. HIFU treats all forms of ageing on the face including wrinkles, sagging skin on the neck, eyelids, chin, jawline and brows.
Ultraformer III is considered as the world’s most advanced HIFU. During treatment low amounts of Micro-Focused Ultrasound energy are delivered into precise skin depths, without damaging the surface of the skin. The treatment ultimately promotes long-term collagen growth for natural, lifted, tightened look - without any downtime.
Dr. Nema recommends this HIFU every 12 months, and perhaps twice in the first year depending on the anatomy, age and degree of skin laxity and wrinkles.
Best For: Tightening & Firming
Radiofrequency facials are now hugely popular.
Designed to tighten and firm your skin, they work fast and effectively - often you only need one or two sessions to see results. They're a great option for anyone looking to soften fine lines - especially the ones from the nose to the mouth - as well as those wanting lifted cheeks and a tightened jawline. The treatment uses heat energy to create controlled injuries to your skin, which prompts collagen and elastin production for better bounce and tone. Expect the treatment to feel like a hot stone facial massage. It's quick, requires no downtime and will take 30 minutes max. Once the radiofrequency device has been used, you'll have a peptide serum - or similar - applied to your skin to minimise redness and enhance smoothness.
As always prevention is the best medicine.
