You should feel mild heat, like a “stinging sensation” but not pain. Most people feel the treatment is painless and comfortable. Some people may feel slight discomfort due to the specific noise spreading inside the body, but causes no harm, and it disappears as soon as the applicator is moved away from body. You may also experience warmth during the treatment. If on the slim chance it gets too warm you can request immediately some extra ultrasound gel to be applied.
Every patient is different. Most people see the best results when they receive a series of treatments, we recommend a minimum of 6-12 session for best results.
After a series of sessions, the body adapts to the treatment with a long term effect of shrunken fat cells. Results improve with the maintenance of a healthy lifestyle which includes a healthy diet and exercise. Once a patient has undergone a treatment program of six (6) sessions, periodic maintenance treatments can be performed to refresh the results.
No. In order to maintain your results, your would need to keep living a healthy lifestyle, follow a correct eating plan and continue with exercise.
The number of fat cells stored in our bodies typically remains constant throughout adult life. As we lose weight, the size of fat cells become smaller, but do not decrease in number. Even with diet and exercise, many people have difficulty losing weight in these trouble areas. After the Body Contouring treatment, the fat cells are reduced and some will not appear again.

Our micro-needling device causes multiple tiny pin-point punctures to the deeper layers of the skin creating controlled injury. This dermal injury starts the release of growth factors that stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin. The micro channels formed infuse anti-aging and selective serums deeper into the skin for greater overall effect.
Our micro-needling pen uses 12 precisely spaced microneedles to create invisible, vertical micro-perforations into the epidermis and the top layer of the dermis.
The advantage of micro-needling compared to other treatments is that it not only activates cell regeneration, it also enhances absorption of nutrient rich serums and product ingredients into the skin during the treatment before the skin closes.
Along with collagen and elastin in the dermis, hyaluronic acid (the glue that holds collagen and elastin in place) changes as we age. As early as in our forties this acid starts decreasing also causing decreased elastin in the skin.
Micro-needling allows reintroduction of hyaluronic acid through microscopic channels that penetrate the skin making it more plump and firm resulting in skin thickness being increased by up to 40%. Microneedling help address many skin-related complaints, like:
- Sagging & loose skin
- Minimizes pore sizes
Micro-needling is used to treat and improve conditions like acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, loose skin, skin texture, pore size, brown spots, stretch marks, and pigment issues.
The medical community generally considers micro-needling to be safe and effective, but there are still some risks. The primary risk is skin irritation after the procedure. Other side effects could include: swelling
No skin enhancement procedure is permanent. This is important because a micro-needling pen creates microscopic injuries in the skin to stimulate the body’s natural healing response. It is the healing process that produces improved-looking skin.
Micro-needling can be safely repeated every 4-6 weeks until you achieve the desired results. For scar reduction an average of 3 to 6 treatments are recommended.
The inflammatory reaction of the skin is extremely short and fades significantly within hours from redness to pinkish that may last for 12 to 48 hours. In order to reduce visible redness we recommend to avoid the sun.
It is normal for the skin to peel after micro-needling treatments within a few days. A new layer of skin is produced, and the old skin begins peeling off. The peeling will be minimal, like a mild sunburn. We recommend you wait 2 to 3 days to begin wearing makeup again, depending on the unique post-procedure instructions that your skin expert has provided you after your session.

BOTOX AND FILLERS
This treatment is highly recommended for patients who are experiencing the effects of ageing, especially when the fat stores of the face begin to decrease as underlying Collagen, Hyaluronic Acid, and Elastin Fibers begin to deteriorate.
The human face is the emotional window of the soul, which can express sadness, joy, anger, and tiredness, often incorrectly due to ageing, as well as the stresses and strains of life. By changing certain facial proportions and repositioning key anatomical structures one can significantly alter, uplift and the improve these facial expressions, returning the face to a more youthful and attractive state. This is similar to creating a unique work of art using Botox and Fillers as the tools to smooth, sculpt and reform the natural beauty of the human face.
At Medtanix Aesthetics Center we consider each client’s face uniquely and consider carefully which injected sites would be optimal based on the individual and unique anatomy of each patient’s face. Therefore, when it comes to Injectables, Dr. Mathew DNP, follows a safe, artistic, and unique approach: Inject the correct amount of product in the right place in an effort to preserve each patient’s natural look and to maximize long-lasting results.
Botulinum toxin type A (Botox): Botox injections work by weakening or paralyzing certain muscles or by blocking certain nerves. The effects last about three to ten months, depending on what you are treating. Targeted areas:
- Forehead lines.
- Glabellar lines (between eyebrows).
- Crow’s feet (Periocular lines).
- Severe underarm sweating.
KYBELLA: This filler is an injectable made of deoxycholic acid, which breaks down excess fat. It is used to reduce submental fullness, or in other words, to eliminate a double chin. KYBELLA can be injected into the chin-neck area in a short, 20-minute treatment. Over the following weeks, the deoxycholic acid will break down the excess fat to produce a slenderer and more defined neckline.
Results will become more and more noticeable over the weeks and months. After one to six treatment sessions spaced at least four weeks apart, patients can expect an improvement in their neck contour.
JUVÉDERM is gel-based filler that use hyaluronic acid to increase facial volume and diminish wrinkles. Neither filler requires any invasive procedures, and it is FDA-approved. This solution is typically injected around the mouth area to plump lips, add cheek volume, and smooth fine lines.
Standard procedure times range from 20 minutes to an hour. Cosmetic filler solutions are ideal for improving facial density and rejuvenating skin. Best of all, they can be done to reflect understated, natural results.
Since everyone’s chin profile is different, the number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Your healthcare specialist will help determine how many treatment sessions you need based on the amount and distribution of your submental fat and your personal treatment goals.
Depending upon age and other skin factors, Botox usually lasts for three to ten months. Though a change can be seen instantly, the maximum effect takes three to four weeks to appear. How often you get treatment can also depend on your age and the area of your face. For instance, the skin around the eyes is considered more delicate than the skin of the forehead and could, therefore, require more frequent sessions.
Yes, all skin types can be safely treated with injectables, please make sure to inform your skin condition and allergies prior any treatment session.
Injections may cause some discomfort during and after the procedure. Sometimes, the face can be a more sensitive area, causing the pain to increase more than a flu shot on the arm. It also depends on your individual pain tolerance. The good news is, just like a shot at the doctor’s office, it only lasts for an instant and is well worth the results.
Fillers should not be used by people with bleeding disorders. Injections should not be made anywhere except the skin or just under the skin. Areas to be avoided: skin sores, pimples, rashes, hives, cysts, or infections. Pregnant, breastfeeding, or patients under 18 years, should not use injectable fillers.

IPL – or Intense Pulse Light – treatment can be used for hair removal on all areas of the body. The course of treatment may require 6-8 sessions to stop or reduce hair re-growth significantly. Laser treatment can involve targeted heating of hair follicles to destroy them in order to eradicate body hair permanently. It can be safe and effective.
Laser Skin Rejuvenation involves non-abrasive, non-invasive light therapy without requiring injections, making it the most effective non surgical- skin repair technique available today. As we grow older, cell regeneration slows down and skin loses its firmness and glow
Achieve clear, youthful skin. Skin rejuvenation with Laser technology can offer superior results with the highest levels of comfort and safety. Removal / Reduction of:
- Unwanted Hair
- Spider veins & Rosacea
- Pigmentation & Sun Damage
- Facial acne scar
- Enlarged pores
- Fine lines & Wrinkles
The hair growth cycle is complex and varies from one body location to another. The number of sessions depends also on the skin type and the nature of the hair (color and thickness). On average, one area will require at least 6 to 10 sessions and one session every 4 weeks.
Hair removal: Most people experience no visible side effects however, in some cases, it may take several hours for redness or “goose bumps” to disappear.
Laser skin rejuvenation side effects of this kind may be swelling, itching, lighter looking skin (new skin which has been less exposed to sun light), pink or red skin areas.
The sensation is that of an elastic bans lightly snapped against the skin. Most people find it less painful than waxing. Comfort levels vary from person to person depending on skin and hair color, as well as hair size and density. IPL is a non-invasive procedure requiring no recovery downtime so clients can return to routine daily activities immediately after treatment.
Shaving is necessary to avoid the dissipation of energy at the skins surface. If the hair is not shaved, there is a decrease in efficiency as well as a greater risk of discomfort and side effects.
For hair removal, the darker the hair the better the result. Light and fine hairs can be treated, however with difficulty. White and red hair cannot be successfully removed. Our IPL system can successfully remove unwanted hair from almost any part of the body, in both women and men.
For Skin procedures, any type of skin can be treated. Our IPL system precisely and safely target pigmented lesions such as freckles, sun spots and age spots. Vascular lesions such as spider veins and redness from rosacea are also lightened and gradually fade.

PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma therapy. It is one of the treatments for hair loss and skin rejuvenation. It is a three-step medical procedure in which a person’s blood is drawn, processed by the specialist, and then injected back into the scalp.
PRP has been used for over the last decade and its uses have expanded and has been established as a safe effective form of tissue and skin repair and rejuvenation. By stimulation of the hair follicles via platelets and growth factors, natural hair growth can be seen. Promising results have been shown in many patients. A treatment worth trying for a particularly distressing disease.
Anti-aging & Scarring: PRP can be used in the treatment of scarring and hair loss as well as improving inflammatory skin conditions and the general texture and tone of the skin due to ageing. By stimulation of the platelet healing cascade an improvement of scarring can be seen, however, the best results are PRP in combination with laser therapy for scarring.
The treatment is considered bearable, but it is a bit painful. That said, the pain only lasts a couple of seconds where we are needling the solution into the scalp. Each treatment is fairly quick, so it is only a couple of minutes (usually 5 to 10 minutes) of discomfort. No pain will be experienced immediately post treatment.
Initially, patients would return for three treatments over three months. It typically takes another three months to measure the improvements. Over time, the course of treatment may need to be repeated depending on the patient’s response to therapy, hair loss condition and goals. Additional treatments with PRP may be necessary in order to maintain the desired results.
PRP hair treatment is like a recurring therapy. If a patient wants good results, he should be consistent in the entire therapy. The first major result that the patients can see is the reduction in their hair loss. After this, they experience an increase in the hair growth cycle. The decrease in the hair fall pattern is a sign of good hair growth.
