Common dermatological conditions and treatments

At the utoquai clinic, we offer you a wide range of treatments, including scar and anti-ageing treatments as well as medical dermatology.

Anti-ageing treatments

Our anti-ageing methods include:

Liquid Jawline
The ‘Liquid Jawline’ treatment uses injectable fillers to define and tighten the chin and jawline. This method offers a minimally invasive solution to improve the facial profile and reduce age-related skin sagging.

Korean V Lift
Thread lifting involves inserting absorbable threads under the skin to tighten sagging skin and reduce wrinkles. This method also promotes the body’s natural collagen production, which can contribute to longer-lasting skin rejuvenation.

Mesotherapy is a procedure in which individually formulated active ingredients are injected into the middle layer of the skin using micro-injections to revitalise the skin. This treatment improves skin elasticity, reduces fine lines and ensures a more radiant complexion.

Micro-needling uses fine needles to create micro-injuries in the skin in order to stimulate the skin’s healing processes and collagen production. Among other things, this method is suitable for treating acne scars and improving skin texture.

Ultherapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses ultrasound waves to tighten the skin. This technology stimulates the deeper layers of the skin to produce new collagen, with the goal of natural, long-lasting skin rejuvenation.

Vampire Lift (PRP Treatment)
Vampire lifting, also known as PRP treatment, uses platelet-rich plasma from the patient’s own blood to promote cell regeneration. Amongst other things, this treatment is used to reduce wrinkles and improve skin elasticity.

Medical dermatology treatments

Our medical services include:

Spider veins
Spider veins are small, visible blood vessels that often appear on the legs as red or blue lines. They are usually harmless, but can be treated for cosmetic reasons, for example, with laser therapy or sclerotherapy.

Varicose veins
Varicose veins are enlarged, swollen veins that often show through the skin in a bluish colour. Treatment options include conservative measures such as compression stockings or non-surgical methods such as varicose sclerotherapy.

Skin cancer screening
Skin cancer screening involves the regularly scheduled examination of the skin in order to recognise signs of skin cancer as early as possible. Moles and skin changes are closely examined in order to treat conspicuous areas at an early stage.

Skin analysis
A skin analysis is used to precisely assess the condition of the skin. This helps us identify individual skin problems and offer suitable treatment recommendations. Modern technologies enable us to gain detailed insight into the skin condition and pigmentation.

Skin tumours
Skin tumours can be benign or malignant and require precise diagnosis through dermatological examinations. Treatment varies depending on the type and stage of the tumour and may include surgery, medication or laser therapy.

Acne is a common skin condition caused by clogged pores, inflammation and bacteria. It usually occurs on the face and back. Treatment methods range from medication and antibiotics to hormone therapy for more severe cases.

Dermatological emergency – what should I do?

A dermatological emergency requires quick action. In the event of acute skin problems, such as severe allergic reactions, sudden skin rashes or signs of infection, it is crucial to seek medical attention immediately. Keep calm and try not to irritate the affected skin area any further. Contact your dermatologist or the dermatological outpatient emergency department immediately. Describe your symptoms in detail to ensure prompt and appropriate treatment.

We understand that skin emergencies can be distressing. Our goal is to provide you with the help and support you need as quickly as possible.
