Dermal fillers are injectable cosmetic treatments used to add volume, smooth out wrinkles and enhance facial features. They are made of a variety of materials, including hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that helps to retain skin moisture, and collagen, a protein that gives skin its structure. Dermal fillers are used to restore fullness to the face, plump thin lips, smooth out wrinkles and lines, and enhance cheekbones and other facial features.
The injections usually take less than an hour, and the effects are typically visible immediately with results that can last anywhere from several months to over a year, depending on the type of filler used. Dermal fillers offer a non-surgical option for achieving a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
Toxins anti-wrinkle treatments refer to injectable cosmetic treatments that use botulinum toxin to temporarily relax the facial muscles that cause wrinkles. These treatments are popular for reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, especially around the eyes, forehead, and mouth. Botulinum toxin is a naturally occurring protein that is used in tiny, controlled doses to target specific muscles, smoothing out wrinkles and improving the overall appearance of the skin. These treatments are quick, non-surgical, and have a low risk of side effects, making them a popular choice for those looking for a minimally invasive way to enhance their appearance.
“Have been going to Sophia for six years for twice annual anti-wrinkle treatments and happy with the results. Equally as important is Sophia’s caring manner and willingness to fit in with your timetable.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments are a type of cosmetic treatment that uses a patient’s own blood to promote healing and rejuvenation of the skin. The treatment involves collecting a small amount of the patient’s blood, processing it to concentrate the platelets, and then re-injecting it into the targeted area.
Platelets are a natural component of blood that contain growth factors, which are essential for healing and tissue regeneration. When these growth factors are concentrated and delivered directly to the skin, they can help to stimulate collagen production, improve skin texture and tone, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and scars. PRP treatments are often used in conjunction with other cosmetic treatments, such as microneedling, to enhance results and improve the overall health and appearance of the skin.
Microsclerotherapy is a cosmetic treatment used to remove spider veins and small varicose veins on the legs. The treatment involves injecting a solution directly into the affected veins, which causes them to shrink and eventually disappear. Microsclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure that is performed in our clinic, usually taking less than an hour.
The solution used in the injections is designed to cause the walls of the veins to collapse and close, which then reroutes blood flow to other, healthier veins. This procedure is safe and effective, and has minimal downtime, making it a popular choice for those looking to improve the appearance of their legs. Microsclerotherapy can be used alone or in conjunction with other cosmetic treatments, such as laser therapy, to achieve the desired results.
Chemical peels are a type of cosmetic treatment that uses a chemical solution to improve the appearance of the skin. The solution is applied to the skin, causing the outer layers to peel away, revealing smoother, younger-looking skin underneath. Chemical peels can be used to treat a variety of skin concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, age spots, acne and acne scars, and uneven skin tone.
The strength of the solution used and the depth of the peel will depend on the individual’s skin type, concerns, and desired results. Chemical peels can be performed at different depths, ranging from light surface peels to deeper peels that reach into the middle layer of skin. The procedure can only be performed in our clinic, usually taking 30 minutes to an hour, with some recovery time required depending on the depth of the peel. Chemical peels offer a non-surgical option for improving the appearance and health of the skin.
WOW facials are a type of cosmetic treatment designed to improve the appearance and health of the skin. The “WOW” refers to the instant and noticeable improvement in skin texture, tone, and radiance that is achieved with the treatment. WOW facials typically involve a combination of cleansing, exfoliation, and nourishing ingredients to cleanse, brighten, and hydrate the skin. The exact process of a WOW facial may vary depending on the individual’s skin type, concerns, and desired results, but common ingredients and techniques include:
- Deep cleansing to remove impurities and unclog pores
- Exfoliation to remove dead skin cells and brighten the skin
- Infusion of hydrating and nourishing ingredients, such as antioxidants and vitamins
- Massage to boost circulation and promote relaxation
Profhilo treatments are a type of cosmetic injectable treatment designed to improve the appearance and health of the skin. The treatment involves injecting a hyaluronic acid-based product into the skin, where it works to hydrate and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. The result is a smoother, more youthful-looking complexion with improved texture, tone, and elasticity.
Profhilo treatments usually take 30 minutes to an hour. The procedure is minimally invasive, with minimal downtime, and is designed to be highly biocompatible with the skin, reducing the risk of adverse reactions. Profhilo treatments can be used to target a variety of skin concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, and uneven skin tone. They are often used in conjunction with other cosmetic treatments, such as fillers and botox, to achieve a more comprehensive rejuvenation of the skin.
Polydioxanone Threads (PDO)
Polydioxanone (PDO) threads are a type of cosmetic treatment used to lift and tighten skin. They are thin, absorbable sutures made from a synthetic material that has been used safely in medical procedures for over 20 years. During a PDO thread lift, the threads are inserted into the skin using a needle or cannula. The threads then provide an immediate lifting effect, while the body’s natural healing response helps to stimulate collagen production, which leads to further skin tightening and rejuvenation.
PDO threads can be used to treat a variety of concerns, including sagging skin on the face, neck, and body, as well as wrinkles, fine lines, and loss of volume. The procedure is minimally invasive, with minimal downtime, making it a popular choice for those looking for a non-surgical way to improve their appearance.
