What inspired you to create the clinic?
Beauty, as a symbiosis of inner harmony and outer aura. The idea to create ProArt was inspired by the cult to beauty as a result from power from within! I believe that the most beautiful thing in a smile is the woman who carries it.
Physical appearance, mind, age, social position and character are only a reflection of one's soul harmony! A true woman doesn't seek attention with her looks only, first she gains it with her inner magnetism - the condition borne by enjoying herself and life...
Enjoying yourself is not a simple art, but once mastered it helps you to become the most powerful magnet!
My idea was to create a place that combines admiration for the strength and character of ladies and harmony between inner aura and outside beauty as a result of our innate confidence. I dreamed of creating a place that will warmly greet women's uniqueness, underlying the natural beauty. A place that is not only a dermatology and aesthetics clinic, but a second home for the strong and determined ladies who conquer not only using their smile, but also their character. I believe I succeeded!
For what conditions and problems will we find help at ProArt?
Currently, dermatology is one of the fastest developing fields in medicine with wide, diverse and comprehensive range of activities and pathologies. It covers not only aesthetics, but also the struggle with the most malignant tumour in human pathology, the melanoma. Training and practicing in this field demand, on the one hand, imagination and inventiveness, and on the other - associative thinking and photographic memory. The skin is the largest organ in the human body and as such takes one to new challenges every day.
That is why we integrated at ProArt a wholesome model - aesthetics (injection procedures, fillers, boosters, mesotherapies, botulinum toxin, laser rejuvenation and lifting) and diagnosis and therapy of all dermatological pathologies based on current trends and discoveries, which we follow with interest on a daily basis.
For treatment of what conditions is laser therapy applicable?
The laser system we have at ProArt is a world leader with over 50 years of traditions in design, development and manufacture of laser technologies. Light sources with different wavelength and depth of penetration and ablation of the skin allow treatment of a wide range of dermatological diseases and conditions such as acne, rosacea, capillaries, vascular spiders, hemangiomas, scars, stretch marks, nail fungi, surgical excisions, condylomas, papillomas and others.
The Er:YAG laser has a wide spectrum of ablative and nonablative procedures suitable for treatment of different skin conditions such as ageing and "wear" due to atmospheric conditions, lifestyle and other factors. With its special work regimes the system allows us to help both young patients for prevention and ladies who aim to restore or keep their skin's natural and healthy appearance in a more mature age.
One of the most popular procedures both in our clinic and on the international market is the so-called 4D lifting. The name comes from the fact that we work in a controlled and precise way in 4 skin layers, including the intraoral ligament. Thus we improve the turgor and firm, lift and smoothen the skin. As a final of the procedure, we improve the overall tone and smooth imperfections, spots, pores with laser pilling.
During the latest Laser Academy were demonstrated new techniques for treatment of eye contour with the system that we have, and that we already apply at ProArt clinic.
What other procedures are sough after in ProArt?
Lip enlargement remains one of the most popular procedures in our clinic. The difference, compared with previous years, is that ladies increasingly aim towards maximally natural and aesthetically pleasing corrections that are hardly noticeable. It was exactly my the concept when ProArt was created - the aim to underline natural beauty in a very subtle, beautiful and elegant way, without damaging our patients' individuality.
Corrections of the face contour are also popular - underlining of the lower jaw, the mandibular angle, the cheekbones.
Autumn is a very good time for restoring skin hydration after the damages of the sun with boosters and mesotherapies.
This is the moment to appeal for more care for the hair during the season of hair-loss. At the clinic we have the only of its kind hair filler, a perfect solution for hair-loss and thin and weak hair.
Undoubtedly, the above-mentioned 4D lifting is one of the favourite procedures for both me and my patients. Besides having an incredible lifting and piling effect, the procedure is a great alternative for patients who prefer noninvasive methods for collagen stimulation and face contouring.
