Our dermatology and laser department is headed up by Dr. Namir Shehade. At Sansaya we are
proud to offer you an extensive range of treatment options designed to help provide
solutions to a wide variety of skin and hair related issues.
If you’re looking older than your age, tired or are frowning or scowling a lot, Botox®
works to reduce the associated lines and wrinkles. It is one of the most common
procedures currently available which delivers the best natural young look without
surgery. Botox® is administered through injections to relax the muscles which cause
wrinkles. Its effect, which is temporary, is to make skin appear smooth and
wrinkle-free. Where lines are deep, our specialists at Sansaya may recommend the use of
As we get older our skin tends to slack and sag which results in the drooping appearance
of our face. This same effect can also occur after a massive loss in body weight. In
these cases the solution is filler injections. They are a quick and easy way to return
and retain the volume of the face, resulting in the lifting up of the facial features
and giving a more youthful look. At Sansaya we use FDA-cleared fillers that are
unharmful to the skin and can be effective up to one year depending on the skin type.
This treatment helps with:
Giving volume to thin lips
Improving the appearance of fine lines and small scars
For the lifting of sagging skin on the face and neck, threads are the popular
alternative to the traditional facelift surgery. Facial threads are non-invasive and are
considered as a convenient “lunchtime” facial rejuvenation option due to the fact that
his treatment doesn’t require a general anaesthetic or a long recovery time. The results
are immediate and improve over the period of two months, lasting between 18 months to 5
years depending on the type of threads used. Facial threads are the best option for
people aged between 30 and 60 years old.
This treatment helps with:
Collagen stimulation which keeps your skin smooth and elastic
Lifting and volumising the face
Improving the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
Mesotherapy is a non-surgical, cosmetic solution that works on the rejuvenation of the
face and neck, providing a dewy glow and natural radiance to the skin. This treatment
boosts the body’s circulation and immune system to create a biological response which
works to reverse abnormal physiology. Over and above rejuvenating the face and neck, it
is also a safe treatment for the cure of cellulite and hair loss. Mesotherapy involves
the injection of vitamins, amino acids and medication into the areas of the skin where
the treatment is required.
Known as the “Vampire Facial”, PRP Plasma Treatment has been used by many famous stars
including Kim Kardashian, Rafael Nadal and Tiger Woods. The treatment is aimed mainly at
improving the skin tone and rejuvenating the face by giving the skin a young and fresh
look. PRP Plasma Treatment involves withdrawing the patient’s own blood into vials. A
special machine then separates the plasma from the blood. Within this plasma are
platelets which contain hundreds of proteins that are called growth factors. This plasma
is then re-injected into the skin through many small injections. The plasma then helps
in the generation of collagen which regenerates tissue and results in the tightening and
smoothing of the skin. You can notice results within three to four weeks after your
first session and it is recommended that you repeat the treatment every four to six
As with PRP Plasma Treatment, the patient’s own blood is withdrawn into vials from which
the plasma is extracted. Within this plasma are platelets which contain hundreds of
proteins that are called growth factors. This plasma is then re-injected into the scalp
through many small injections. The plasma then helps to naturally stimulate inactive
hair follicles, making them active again and thereby regenerating the growth of hair.
Candela GentleMax Pro® has set the gold standard for laser hair removal across all skin
types. It is a dual wavelength laser platform that combines speed, efficacy, ease-of-use
and safety. Being one of the fastest hair removal lasers on the market means that the
treatment of the whole body can be completed in 90 minutes. It also has a special
cooling device which helps to make it more comfortable during the treatment.
How does laser hair removal technology work?A concentrated beam of light is aimed at the hair. The light is absorbed by the pigment which damages the hair follicle enough to retard future growth. Lasers can remove hair from anywhere from the body.
Is the Candela GentleMax Pro® safe?Yes, it is completely safe. In fact, laser and light-based treatments in general have been safely used for many years for a variety of medical and cosmetic procedures.
How long do the treatments take and how many treatments will I require?The treatment of the whole body can be done in 90 minutes, however treatment times may vary depending on your specific needs. Hair growth is reduced after each treatment and the number of treatments required will be based on your hair colour and type, body area and skin tone.
What precautions should I take throughout this process?Avoid sun exposure at least two weeks before treatment. Do not bleach, pluck or wax four to six weeks before and after the treatment. Wait for tanned skin to fade before beginning the treatment.
Are laser hair removal treatments painful?The Candela GentleMax Pro uses a patented Dynamic Cooling Device™ (DCD™) which prepares the skin for treatment by spraying the upper layer with a cooling burst of cryogen, in adjustable durations, milliseconds before the laser pulse. DCD™ helps ensure that the treatments are as comfortable as they are effective.
Are there any side effects?Possible side effects of the treatment are minor, and could include erythema and skin redness, but are only expected to last for a few hours.
Ultherapy® is the FDA-cleared, non-surgical facelift. The treatment non-invasively
lifts, tightens and tones the brow, chin, neck and chest areas to improve lines and
wrinkles. Ultherapy® stimulates collagen production by delivering focused ultrasound
energy to the skin’s foundational layer, typically addressed in cosmetic surgery,
without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.
What technology does Ultherapy® use?Ultherapy® harnesses the power of ultrasound to transform the brow, chin, neck and chest. Ultrasound, of course, has been used safely throughout the medical field for more than 50 years — and Ultherapy® has been established as safe and effective in clinical studies and in more than 350,000 treatments worldwide.
How does the technology affect the skin?Unlike lasers, radio frequency, surgery and other technologies, non-surgical Ultherapy® bypasses the surface of the skin to deliver the right amount of ultrasound energy at the right depths and the right temperature. This energy triggers a natural response under the skin, jumpstarting the regenerative process that produces fresh, new collagen.
How long does it take before you can see a difference?Some patients see an initial effect right after their treatment, but the real results appear over two to three months as new collagen works to lift and tighten skin on the neck, chin and brow as well as smooth skin on the chest. While Ultherapy® won’t duplicate the results of a facelift, it’s a clinically proven, non-invasive alternative for those not ready for surgery – and can even be an option for patients who wish to extend the effects of cosmetic surgery.
VelaShape III® is the first and only technology that reduces the appearance of cellulite
and sagging skin, and improves skin texture in as little as one to three treatments.
Additionally, VelaShape III® provides dramatic results without downtime or significant
How quickly will I notice a change?Gradual improvement of the treated area can be seen following the first treatment, with the skin surface of the treated area feeling smoother and firmer.
How many centimetres can I reduce from my circumference?In clinical studies, patients report an average reduction of one to three centimetres after one treatment. A recent study showed 97% patient satisfaction.
How does VelaShape III® work?The elōs® technology’s combination of infrared light, coupled radio frequency energy rollers and vacuum causes deep heating of the fat cells, their surrounding connective tissue and the underlying dermal collagen fibres. This type of efficient heating and vacuum stimulate the growth of new and better collagen and elastin which results in localised reduction in skin laxity, body volume and an overall improvement in skin structure and texture.
Is the treatment safe?The treatment is safe and effective for all skin types and colours. There are no reported short or long-term negative health effects.
Does the treatment hurt?Most patients find VelaShape III® comfortable, similar to a warm, deep tissue massage. The treatment is designed to accommodate your sensitivity and comfort level.
CoolTech® is an industry-leading, fat freezing treatment which effectively reduces
stubborn fatty areas of the body safely and effectively in as little as three sessions.
CoolTech® freezes away the fatty tissue, with between 20% and 40% of the fat removed in
one treatment. The best part about the treatment is that it removes the fat cells so they can’t fill up again, in a similar way that surgical liposuction works (but without the risks, high costs and long recovery time).
What can CoolTech® do for you?CoolTech® procedure effectively reduces localised adipose tissue using a controlled freezing system with a non-invasive, safe and effective method.
What is the Cryolipolysis process used by CoolTech®?Cryolipolysis is the non-invasive freezing of adipose tissue to induce lypolysis (i.e. the breaking down fat cells).
How does it work?A non-invasive applicator is attached to the targeted area to extract heat from the underlying fat tissue, while protecting the skin, nerves, muscles and other tissues.
On what body areas can I be treated?A wide range of areas, specifically the abdomen, flanks, thighs, hips, knees, arms and abductors.
How quickly will I notice change?Results in localised fat reduction are seen after 15 days with the most dramatic results being experienced after eight weeks.
Is the treatment safe?The treatment is completely safe and effective. Typically there is minimal to no downtime after the treatment.
Are the results permanent?After CoolTech® treatment the treated fat cells will be eliminated via the body’s normal physiological activity. As long as you maintain your weight with your normal diet and exercise, your long term results should remain stable.
If you’ve ever thought about cosmetic surgery but were put off by the pain, expense and
lengthy recovery time, New-Life™ is the solution. New-Life™ with B.E.A.M™ technology
(Bio Electrical Acceleration Management technology) is a non-invasive treatment for the
tightening and lifting of muscles with no recovery time. You can obtain great looking
results after the first treatment.
How does Venus work?New-Life™ uses innovative B.E.A.M™ technology to stimulate and activate muscles. B.E.A.M™ technology imitates your body’s natural pulses which causes the contraction of the muscles. The contracted muscle folds into itself, becoming smaller, stronger and more defined. By stimulating muscle activation, you increase blood circulation, improve metabolism and tone your body exactly as you desire.
Does it hurt?The patient undergoing New-Life™ treatment feels like they are having a refreshing massage. You’ll feel like you’ve had an intense workout at the gym without pain or sweat. The muscles in the face and body become immediately stronger and the skin is noticeably tighter. A typical treatment lasts 30 to 60 minutes. New-Life™ treatments activate a different muscle group to give your body a complete workout. A series of six to 12 sessions is recommended for lasting results. Three treatments a week will give you a younger and healthier look in less than four weeks.
LUCID QY® uses Q-Switched technology to reduce and remove undesirable skin conditions or
issues without damaging any surrounding tissue. The LUCID QY® laser has three primary
uses, namely carbon peel, tattoo removal and hair bleaching.
A carbon peel is a revolutionary laser treatment that is completely painless with
minimal-to-zero downtime. It is highly beneficial for people with oily skin, blackheads,
enlarged pores, dull skin, and acne on the face or body. It is also an excellent way to
exfoliate and refresh your skin, providing an instant refreshed appearance and leaving
your skin feeling softer, smoother and firmer.
This treatment helps with:
Cleansing, exfoliating and rejuvenating the skin
Reduces skin problems such as enlarged pores, acne, oily skin and blackheads
How does the carbon peel treatment work?A layer of liquid carbon is applied to the skin which then penetrates deep into the pores. Laser light is highly attracted to the carbon particles. When the laser is passed over the area, it destroys the carbon, taking dead skin cells, contaminants and oil with it.
How many treatments will I need?Noticeable results can be experienced after a single treatment, but for maximum long-term results we recommend regular treatments.
What should I do after the treatment?As with all skin treatments, carbon peels should be supplemented by a good skin-care routine and daily use of a high-spectrum sunscreen.
Tattoos are crafted by injecting pigment into the dermal layer of the skin, similarly
removing a tattoo requires laser treatment to the depth of the dermal layer to remove
it. Laser tattoo removal is relatively process which involves no blood loss. The laser
breaks the ink particles into small particles which are then disposed of gradually by
How does laser tattoo removal work?The laser offers multiple wavelengths to choose from, each of which targets a specific colour range. Our specialists customise the treatment for each patient and each individual tattoo in order to ensure that the optimum wavelength is used to remove each ink colour. The Q-Switched laser delivers short, high power pulses, effectively breaking apart the ink into small pieces which are able to be absorbed by the body’s immune system.
What are the benefits of laser tattoo removal?Unlike other methods of removal, the Q-Switched laser will leave the surrounding tissue intact, allowing for better healing and blending into the surrounding tissue.
Does the colour of the tattoo matter?The colour of the tattoo does matter, meaning that the tattoo could be completely removed from the skin or only partially removed. Also, bear in mind that the lighter colours are more difficult to completely remove.
What are the risks and side effects?Just as it was uncomfortable to receive the tattoo, there is also discomfort with the removal. To reduce discomfort, topical or local anaesthetic is often used just before the procedure, in addition to very cold air blown on the area during treatments. Other side effects that can occur with tattoo removal include redness, swelling and scabbing for up to two weeks after the treatment. Proper skincare is needed post treatment to heal the treated area. Any laser treatment also has the risk of the following side effects although very uncommon: skin wound, infection, scarring, hypo or hyper-pigmentation, bruising and peeling. Prior to treatment, all potential risks and side effects will be discussed with you by our specialists.
How many treatments will I need?There are no set requirements for numbers of treatments. On average three to ten treatments are required for tattoo reduction, performed every eight weeks, but occasionally more may be necessary.
How long is each treatment session?Depending on the size of the tattoo that is to be removed, treatment may be very fast (less than five minutes) or quite lengthy.
What should I do after the treatment?Just as you had to care for your skin after receiving the tattoo, it is important to also use proper skincare as directed by our specialists.
Q-Switched laser technology offers the ultimate solution to the fine hairs that cannot
be easily removed. The treatment bleaches the hair thus making it invisible without any
risk of stimulating the hair growth.
How does laser hair bleaching work?With laser bleaching, the hair becomes almost invisible immediately. After 10 to 15 days the hairs fall out and then re-grow after four to six weeks in the same texture and quality.
Am I a suitable candidate for laser hair bleaching?This laser treats any type of skin, whether white, dark or tanned.
How often can I have the treatment?Laser hair bleaching can be done once every four to six weeks and when desired.
How many treatments will I need?It differs from person to person and depends on the severity and nature of the problem.
How does the skin look immediately after the treatment?Mostly the skin is normal but it can turn slightly red. The redness goes away after few minutes. Our specialist will apply small amount of Fucicort Cream to the treated area to reduce the discomfort and protect against any infection.
What should I do after the treatment?Avoid using acne face washes, facial scrubs, creams and gels for one to two days. Also avoid using bleaching agents for pigmentation for two to three days. It is also advisable to avoid heat exposure such as from the sun, exercise or sauna. If you do go in the sun, sunscreen must be used.
eMatrixTwo® provides a complete solution for facial rejuvenation with almost no
downtime. Additionally, treatment times are minimal, with a typical treatment session
lasting between 10 and 40 minutes. There are two treatments provided by eMatrixTwo®,
namely Sublime™ and Sublative®, which are safe and effective for all skin types.
How does Sublime™ work?Sublime™ uses the elōs® combination of safe and effective levels of infrared light and bi-polar radio frequency energies to provide controlled, deep thermal heating which remodels the dermal layer of the skin by stimulating new collagen growth. This predictable heating of the deep dermis both shrinks aged collagen fibres and stimulates new collagen synthesis, resulting in the immediate and long-term improvement of wrinkles and facial contour with a very low risk of side effects and virtually no downtime.
Does the Sublime™ treatment hurt?Sublime™ is a gentle, comfortable treatment requiring virtually no downtime. Most patients return to normal activities immediately after the treatment. Cooling of the skin’s surface provides enhanced safety and additional comfort.
What results can I expect from the Sublime™ treatment?Sublime™ can improve sagginess of the face, neck and some body areas such as the abdomen and upper arms. Skin texture can also be smoothed out by the firming effect of the treatment. This treatment is performed non-ablatively, which means this is a non-invasive procedure. After the treatment, most people leave with only slight pinkness or no pinkness at all.
When can I expect to see results after Sublime™ treatment?Most patients see gradual and cumulative results throughout the Sublime™ treatments. The total number of required treatment sessions depends on the patient’s skin condition.
How does Sublative® work?Sublative® uses fractionated bi-polar radio frequency energy, making it an entirely unique way of treating skin. Exclusively with this energy, Sublative® keeps the majority of the top layer of the skin intact, delivering bulk dermal heating beneath the skin to maximise collagen production.
Does the Sublative® treatment hurt?During the treatment, many patients feel a warm, prickly sensation as the radio energy enters their skin. After treatment, a small amount of redness is also common. Topical anaesthetic ointments can be used to reduce discomfort during treatment.
How many Sublative® treatments will I need?Each patient’s treatment protocol will vary based on individual needs and the results desired. Most patients will receive three treatments, each spaced four to six weeks apart.
When can I expect to see results after Sublative® treatment?Patients will begin to see results after the first treatment and results will continue to improve up to one year after the Sublative® treatment.
Are there any side effects to the Sublative® treatment?No clinical side effects have been reported to date. The beauty of Sublative® is its capability to offer significant results to all skin types with little or no downtime.
