Aesthetic Skin Treatments from APEX
The human skin is the outer covering of the body and is the largest organ of the integumentary system. The skin has up to seven layers of ectodermal tissue and guards the underlying muscles, bones, ligaments and internal organs.
Because it interfaces with the environment, skin plays an important immunity role in protecting the body against pathogens and excessive water loss.
At Apex, we do our best to take care of your skin in the best way possible. Below are some of the common skin care treatments we currently offer and we are in the process of introducing more aesthetic treatments and procedures in the weeks to come.

What are Injectables?
Besides the broad variety of surgical lifting/ rejuvenation procedures, our Plastic surgeon Dr. Afschin Ghofrani provides the entire spectrum of anti-wrinkle treatments with Botulinum toxin, fillers, and lipofilling.
Dynamic and static wrinkles of the face like crow’s feet, frown wrinkles, deep nasolabial folds, sunken cheeks, wrinkled or narrow lips, etc. as well as aged hands can be treated by applying diverse methods and products.
At Apex medical and Dental Clinics, we only use high-quality products for maximum safety and long-term efficiency. For the treatment of dynamic wrinkles, so-called expression wrinkles, botulinum toxin is used, whereas static or deep wrinkles and grooves are treated with fillers.
Botulinum toxin is the number 1-substance for the treatment of dynamic wrinkles. We only use the best quality of Botulinum toxin at Apex as we care for our clients’ safety. The substance causes a relaxation of the mimetic muscles and thereby smooths wrinkles.
Professionally injected by our plastic surgeon in the clinic, the facial expression remains natural and a rejuvenated appearance results. The effect lasts 4- 6 months, but repeated treatments are possible at all times.
The costs of the injections depend on the area to be treated and the number of needed injection units which can be determined at the time of the consultation
Non-dynamic wrinkles, i.e. wrinkles which can also be seen clearly when the face is relaxed, can be treated effectively with dermal fillers which contain hyaluronic acid.
We only apply products of market leaders which are eminently suitable also for the treatment of deep grooves and distinct wrinkles and have a long-lasting effect.
Furthermore, fillers can be used to add volume to lips, cheeks, chin and moreover the back of aging hands can be terrifically rejuvenated. The effect of the application of high-quality filler lasts one year or even longer.
For a permanent effect we recommend the lipofilling method by applying body’s own tissue. With perfect bio-compatibility, almost all areas of the face (and body) can be treated.
From a body area with excess fat, tissue is removed; fat cells are purified and transferred to the area, which needs volume. The lipofilling method is applied to provide volume to lips, cheeks, chin and malar areas and hands.
If the mentioned wrinkle treatments are not desired or recommended, alternatives are rejuvenation and revitalization procedures with non-invasive, very effective treatments like Radio Frequency.
