The "cosmetic medicine" unit
In terms of cosmetic medicine procedures, 70% of them are performed on the face and 30% on the body. They represent an average of over 500 procedures in the Clinic each month. The different techniques are aimed at people who do not need surgery or who do not wish to use it.
Our cosmetic medicine clinic in Paris
Located near the Champs-Elysées, our Clinic is an upmarket cosmetic medicine centre with 7 practitioners specialising in rejuvenation and weight loss techniques who are trained in the latest technology devices.
The cosmetic medicine structure
The CRPCE has 8 cosmetic medicine treatment rooms, including 2 sterile units and 10 laser booths.
Our cosmetic doctors offer techniques with a natural effect. The patient care is comprehensive and there may be a combination of different methods to achieve the most effective result.
New trends in cosmetic medicine
Though the main patient motivation is feeling better about themselves, new requests are emerging. More and more patients are having cosmetic medicine procedures for professional reasons, to remain competitive in the job market or find a job while others need to make themselves look good compared to a younger partner.
Cosmetic medicine prices
The price of cosmetic medicine procedures varies according to several criteria: the technique or product used, the number of injections and the number of sessions. The patient receives a detailed quote following the consultation with the cosmetic doctor. He describes the procedure that will be carried out, gives the practitioner's name and Medical Association identification number, as well as the details of the amount to be paid for the service.
Injections with 100% absorbable products
Hyaluronic acid is a molecule which occurs naturally in the body. The body makes about 5 grams of it each day to renew skin tissues. Thanks to its moisturising properties, it maintains the firmness and elasticity of the skin. There are several varieties of hyaluronic acids with specific properties, which influence the duration of the results and the volumising effect.
Botox is a substance derived from a bacterium (Clostridium botulinum) which is used to treat expression wrinkles. It is injected into muscles in very small doses and temporarily causes them to gradually loosen.
Injections of platelets and plasma
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) activates cell renewal and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin fibres. PRP is injected into the areas which you want to revitalize in just a few minutes.
Calcium hydroxylapatite injections (CaHA)
Radiesse is an injection product containing calcium, a mineral component which is produced naturally by the body. Once injected, the product acts as a frame under the skin, giving it a structure and stimulating the production of collagen.
V-Lifting is a technique that involves placing sutures under the skin. The presence of the sutures in the body generates a local inflammation and tissue fibrosis. The skin then stimulates the production of new collagen to regenerate the dermis. This new collagen reduces wrinkles, firms up sagging skin tissue, smooths wrinkled skin and improves the quality and radiance of the skin.
The Fraxel is a laser that smoothes the skin to give it a sharper, refreshed and rejuvenated appearance. It effectively targets both the surface layers and deep layers of the skin without anaesthetic and without any social eviction.
Venus Viva sends microscopic columns of radiofrequency energy into the dermis. The heat produced splits the existing collagen fibres, which stimulates the production of new collagen through a reaction.
Thermage uses radio frequency to safely heat different depths of the dermis and subcutaneous tissue in order to stimulate and tighten the existing collagen while activating the production of new collagen.
PRX-T33 is a bio-revitalization technique without injections which regenerates skin thoroughly without any peeling or flaking of the epidermis. This treatment can be performed on the face but also on the body, especially the neckline and hands.
Weight loss and treating cellulite
CoolSculpting is a painless method which eliminates small amounts of excess fat by using the cold. When the adipocytes are subjected to extreme and prolonged cold, they die and are then naturally eliminated by the metabolism.
Liposonix uses high intensity focused ultrasound which reduces excess fat from a precise area of the body. The skin is not affected but the adipose tissue just under the skin is permanently destroyed.
Venus Legacy selectively heats the subcutaneous fat layers and triggers lipolysis. The collagen contracts under the effect of the heat. The dimpled appearance of the orange peel skin diminishes and the skin becomes smoother. At the same time, there is a lipolysis and lymphatic drainage effect which reduces the size of the fatty cells.
Lapex combines two types of pads in a single device: four anti-cellulite laser treatment pads and two other lymphatic stimulation pads. It is a very effective combination which makes it possible to drain the fatty cells while activating the removal of the freed triglycerides.
Treating skin imperfections
Universkin offers bespoke serums that specifically target the needs of the skin while balancing its natural defences. Each serum contains between one and three active ingredients chosen from twenty pure active ingredients, which can create up to 2,850 different formulas.
Peeling is a technique which applies an acidic chemical solution to the face to improve the quality of the skin. Peeling restores radiance and tones the skin by masking its flaws: age spots, fine lines, superficial acne scars, blackheads, etc.
The LED laser is based on the technique of light therapy. Red and orange coloured LEDs act to ease the pinkish stretch marks.
Ablative CO2 lasers regenerate skin which has been damaged in depth. They can be used like a scalpel, in abrasive or heat mode, according to the indications to be treated. There is significant social eviction.
- The ultra-pulsed CO2 laser combines both high power and an extremely short pulse duration to carry out precise ablations without damaging the skin. This laser is used in dermatology to remove moles and warts.
- When combined with Erbium, the CO2 laser causes deep skin abrasions. The surface of the skin is sanded down through a controlled burn, which stimulates the production of new collagen. This laser is used to iron out raised scars such as keloids and smooth very pronounced wrinkles.
The Quadralase laser is a fractionated CO2 laser used to smooth the surface of the face and mild scarring that can control the depth of treatment required, depending on the damage to the skin.
The Q Switched laser makes marks disappear (tattoos, age spots etc.) in just a few sessions. This painless treatment just causes a bit of tingling. It is very effective on dark and well defined blemishes, but less so on clearer and diffuse blemishes.
The ND Yag laser is a multifunctional device that makes it possible to have well-defined actions: eliminating varicosities, smoothing wrinkles, removing tattoos and removing hair from coloured skins.
The V-Beam laser is used to treat varicosities, blotchiness, erythrosis, pink stretch marks and birthmarks. It targets the blood vessels.
miraDry sends microwave energy which permanently destroys the sweat glands under the armpits through a thermolysis effect.
Botox blocks the sweat gland activity for six to nine months. The forehead, armpits, palms of the hands and soles of the feet can be treated.
