The treatments of Conturkliniken

Aesthetic surgery

Conturmetoden™ often involves combining two or more forms of treatment.

Aesthetic surgery refers to operations performed using traditional surgical techniques. The most common treatments are facelift, eyelid surgery, rhinoplasty, breast surgery, fat grafting, liposuction and endoscopic surgery ("keyhole surgery") for eyebrow/forehead lift, upper arm surgery and abdominoplasty.

For an optimal and long-lasting result, we often combine aesthetic surgery with other treatments. For example, we may perform an endoscopic brow/forehead lift with simultaneous laser eyelid surgery and laser peeling of wrinkles around the eyes, which provides a total rejuvenation of the eye region.

Aesthetic laser surgery

Aesthetic laser surgery is one of Conturkliniken's pioneering areas. Laser technology has made it possible to use a laser instead of a knife in certain procedures, which is advantageous for both the surgeon and the patient.

The ultra-pulse laser is one of the most advanced lasers on the market. It can be used to make incisions in the skin, to treat wrinkles in the plane of the skin and, to some extent, to treat scars. For scar treatment, the Ultrapulse laser can sometimes be used with other techniques such as chemical peeling and fat grafting.

An example of a combination treatment is a facelift performed simultaneously with laser eyelid surgery and laser peeling of the skin around the eyes or the entire face.

In eyelid surgery, both upper and lower, the incisions are made with the Ultrapulse laser, which gives precise cuts, less bruising, swelling and pain than with a knife. For the patient, this means milder and shorter convalescence and a faster return to work. The ultra-pulse laser also allows for the removal of wrinkles and leads to the regeneration of collagen, resulting in skin rejuvenation.

Aesthetic laser treatment

Conturkliniken® Stockholm has extensive experience of laser treatment and is at the forefront of development. Laser technology has meant that specific lasers have been developed for specific laser treatments. They are popularly known as hair lasers, vessel lasers and tattoo lasers. What they have in common is that they are not used for surgical procedures.

Conturkliniken® also performs laser treatment with the new ELOS technology, which is a further development of IPL. ELOS stands for Electro Optical Synergy and combines IPL or laser and radio frequency. The technology enables both effective and safe laser treatment of pigment spots, superficial blood vessels, wrinkles and skin tightening.

Laser treatment for tattoo removal requires a specialised laser, a so-called Q-switched Yag laser. It can also laser treat various benign pigment spots on the face and hands.

At Conturkliniken® in Stockholm, we perform laser treatment with IPL technology, which is an intense pulsed light that can be used in different wavelengths. What we laser treat in this way is discolouring vessels on the face and neck. Laser treatment with IPL technology is also used for so-called skin rejuvenation. With a series of treatments as the sole method, or in combination with Conturkliniken's medical skin care programme, an improvement in the structure of the skin is achieved.

Aesthetic medicine

New treatments without convalescence. Aesthetic medicine is a relatively new concept. Today, many corrections can be made without using either a knife or a laser - this is when we talk about aesthetic medicine.

Aesthetic medical treatments include different types of injections. For example, wrinkles and folds in the face can be filled with injections such as Restylane or Juvederm.

Wrinkles that depend on muscle movement can be treated with Botox/Vistabel. Examples include the wrinkle between the eyebrows, laugh lines around the eyes, etc. Aged skin with, for example, sun damage and pigment spots can be improved by treatment with medical skin care programmes offered by the clinic. The spraying of veins on the legs is another example.

A common feature of these treatments is that there is no immediate convalescence. These treatments can of course be combined with facelift and laser surgery.
