About the department keyboard_arrow_down

Our center of aesthetic dermatology has the capacity to fulfill any wishes of patients who are not in need of medical treatment. We employ various treatment methods (from botulinum toxin and laser to cutting-edge ultrasonic and radio-frequency methods). These methods, individually or combined, allow correcting those changes in appearance that worsen clients’ quality of life in the most sparing manner without any limitations to their life style.

Dermatology in Switzerland is a highly developed medical sphere. New techniques allow patients and attending doctors to achieve the highest efficiency in treating skin diseases by selecting methods causing no or minimal side effects. It means different depth of skin penetration and different targeted lumps (from treatment of individual patches to collagen formation, i.e. skin strengthening).

At the same time, sick days are very short and treatment methods are very efficient and can be employed individually or combined with other procedures.
