Don't worry - it's safe.
While we live in an age where surgical tools and methods are at their most advanced, what many neglect to consider is that the same tools and methods have also become less risky and invasive. For those same people, there's still something of a fear or taboo, or a mix of both, when it comes to cosmetic surgery. With Wham Clinics, however, those that have pondered going under the proverbial knife have a medical and cosmetic expert that has been around for over three decades, during which they have opened seven different branches across Cairo and Alexandria. Keen to break down the barriers, the folks at the clinic revealed to us seven of their most cutting-edge treatments and surgeries and how they can benefit you.
You might've heard of the term micro-needling before - it's all over the internet right now, and good reason. The treatment that Wham provides uses Dermapen; a radical device that rapidly employs micro punctures in the skin tricking your body in promoting collagen & elastin production, initiating an instantaneous healing process that helps with common skin ailments such as acne, fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, hair loss, hyper-pigmentation and more
Mesotherapy could be the all inclusive procedure you need to kick start your B2Y - Back to Youth journey. This technique utilises a very fine needle to deliver a series of injections which could vary between vitamins, enzymes, hormones, antibiotics and plant extracts to the middle layer (Mesoderm) of skin. Mesotherapy in essence corrects underlying issues like poor circulation and inflammation and, in return, re-contouring your body through fat burning & cellulite reduction in targeted areas such as stomach, thighs, buttocks, arms & face, also specialising in tightening loose skin and neutralizing pigmented skin.
Lipolysis, aka body contouring, is an advanced non-surgical procedure that uses highly specialised laser that breaks down fat tissue in directed areas without impacting surrounding cells or structures. The treatment only takes around 30 minutes and is efficient in removing localised fat bulges in areas such stomach, flanks (handles) and post baby-bellies.
Laser treatments have proven to be revolutionary when it comes to skin care and hair removal solutions, and Wham Clinics have taken it a step further with the Candela GentleLase Pro machine. In addition to traditional laser treatments, the machine is renowned for treating brown spots, freckles, and age marks, making your skin look as young as you truly feel.
High Intensity Focused Ultra Sound (HIFU) is a new non-invasive therapeutic technique that uses non-ionising ultrasonic waves to heat tissue. In layman's terms, it's non invasive skin lift everyone's been dying to get. It ensures subtle yet effective face lifts and double chin elimination.
Botox & Fillers may be completely different things, but recent studies have shown that they're quite the complementary duo to Botox's proven ability to significantly increase the active duration of any filler, if given in the same session as the filler. Botox is essentially a safe purified form of a toxin that freezes those pesky expression lines or dynamic wrinkles caused by smiling, frowning, squinting, and other facial expressions, while
Fillers are designed to fix fine lines & static wrinkles caused by sagging or loss of plumpness through adding volume & fullness to troubled areas such as thinning lips & shallow sunken under-eyes.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is one of the hottest and most sought out treatments in the beauty world and luckily it's offered at Wham. Not only are the results natural looking, but also extremely efficient. What it involves is a blood sample extraction that goes through a high speed spinner, separating precious Platelet Rich Plasma from other blood component. The magical PRP concentrate, known for its healing and growth factors, is injected back to the skin or applied topically in problematic skin areas. Its results & uses are promising - improving skin tone & texture through tightening and revitalisation - giving you a subtle yet powerful face/neck lift, reversing the aging process. It can be even used to promote hair growth and much more. What does it not do?
