While there are several different treatments available, the basic premise behind each technology is similar across the board, as we strive to providebest, modern non-surgical treatments. However, each treatment is specialised to treat certain problem with the skin.

β€’ PDO Threads (PolyDiOxanone)aid skin rejuvenation, lifting, smoothing wrinkles, narrowing the pores, skin lightening, increase or decrease of volume (depending on the technique of implantation), collagen stimulation.
β€’ Laser harnesses the power of filtered light to eliminate excessive pigmentation and redness, while also working to stimulate collagen to aid in the production of new skin cells, resulting in a smooth, even complexion.
β€’ PLA Threads are like PDO Threads, with the difference in material (PolyLactic Acid) and lifting strength (they can be used for β€˜heavy lifting’, to lift even most droopy skin), collagen stimulation.
β€’ Dr. Gabriela Skincare will enhance every result and will help you keep it for longer. The essential hydration will ensure that your skin has enough ingredients to create new collagen. Additional ingredients like hyaluronic acid and vitamins will make your skin glow and shine, while retaining the youthful look.
β€’ Fillers – dermal fillers are small injections of gel, typically made up of hyaluronic acid, that fill in wrinkles and add volume to soft tissue. You can have dermal fillers in different parts of your face: around the eye, cheeks, mouth, and jawline, as well as lip fillers administered directly into the lip tissue.
β€’ Muscle-Relaxant Injections – a drug that weakens or paralyzes muscles. In small doses, it can reduce skin wrinkles and help treat some medical conditions.
β€’ Laser Peel – reduces facial wrinkles and skin irregularities, such as blemishes or acne scars. The technique directs short, concentrated beams of light at irregular skin, precisely removing it layer by layer, to achieve skin smoothness and tightness.

β€’ Before undergoing any treatment, we always have an initial consultation where you will meet Dr Gabriela and discuss with her your concerns, treatment goals and desired outcome. She will then create a tailored treatment plan, including pre-treatment and aftercare advice, which will help enhance your treatment and give you the best results. Depending on your treatment area, you will either be assigned to a doctor, or an expert, who specialises in treating your specific condition.
β€’ Our Injectable Treatments are always administered by a doctor.

β€’ During the initial consultation, Dr Gabriela will go through treatment costs and options, as each patient is addressed on an individual basis and the prices are tailored to their needs. For that reason, the prices are different every time, as in Dr. Gabriela Clinic, we want to achieve the best results, with as little interference in your skin as possible.
