Classic dermatology

Classic dermatology is the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of common skin diseases such as acne, eczema, psoriasis (psoriasis), skin infections, allergies, fungal infections, dermatitis (skin inflammation) and sexually transmitted infections.

This includes recommendations for skin care as well as protection against sun damage and early detection of skin cancer. Regular skin examinations are recommended to identify potentially malignant skin changes at an early stage.

Ästhetische Medizin

Aesthetic medicine

Aesthetic dermatology refers to the medical field concerned with improving the external appearance and the consequences of skin aging (“anti-aging”). It focuses on treating cosmetic issues and visual impairments that can affect a person’s self-esteem and well-being.
Our aim is to carry out the aesthetic treatment in such a way that you look fresher without it being obvious what has been treated. Possibilities include the treatment of wrinkles and fine lines, skin tightening, volume filling, skin rejuvenation, pigmentation balancing, scar correction, removal of skin imperfections such as birthmarks and much more.
The range of treatments in aesthetic dermatology is developing very quickly and now includes a large number of procedures and techniques. Typical aesthetic treatments at our practice include filler and botulinum toxin (Botox) injections, laser treatments, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, autohemotherapy and other specialized techniques such as radiofrequency microneedling.

Laser therapy

Lasers can be used for hair removal, treating acne scars, skin rejuvenation, removing pigment spots, and reducing vascular lesions such as spider veins. In our dermatological practice, we offer a variety of laser treatments that are individually tailored to your needs.

Hautkrebs-Screening

Skin cancer screening

The aim of skin cancer screening is to detect both black skin cancer – also known as malignant melanoma – and light skin cancer, such as basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma, at an early stage. Early detection is of great importance as it enables gentle and successful treatment.
To do this, we first ask about your medical history and then examine your entire skin with a dermatoscope (10x magnification) for conspicuous areas. This examination only takes a few minutes. Not only arms, legs and torso are examined, but also areas such as the scalp, lips, gums, genitals and soles of the feet.

35-year-old people with statutory health insurance are entitled to skin cancer screening every 2 years. It is important to attend this screening regularly in order to be able to identify potential signs of skin cancer early and act accordingly.

In addition, we can photograph conspicuous birthmarks and analyze them with the help of artificial intelligence algorithms (private service). This allows us to clearly show changes over time.

Increased sweating

So-called “hyperhidrosis” refers to excessive sweating beyond normal levels that can affect a person’s quality of life. It is a medical condition in which the sweat glands become overactive and cause you to sweat uncontrollably, even in the absence of an external condition such as heat or exertion.
Hyperhidrosis can be localized or generalized. Localized hyperhidrosis affects specific areas of the body such as the armpits, palms, soles or face. Generalized hyperhidrosis affects the entire body and is often associated with other conditions such as thyroid problems, hormonal imbalances or neurological disorders.
The exact cause of hyperhidrosis is not fully understood, but it is believed that genetic factors may play a role. People with hyperhidrosis often experience significant social and psychological distress, as excessive sweating can affect their self-esteem, dress choices, and social interactions.
Treatment options for hyperhidrosis include topical medications, antiperspirants, iontophoresis (electrical treatment), and in more severe cases, surgical procedures such as sympathectomy. In our experience, botulinum toxin injections have proven to be very effective and less disruptive than surgery. We would be happy to advise you in detail.

Allergologie

Allergology

Our practice offers various diagnostic procedures to identify allergies – including skin prick tests, patch tests and blood tests. As soon as an allergy has been confirmed, we can advise you on treatment options and coordinate the further procedure with you, issue allergy passports or initiate therapy by means of hyposensitization.

Medical cosmetology

In our practic,e we carry out a variety of medical cosmetology treatments with which we improve your skin texture, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, eliminate pigment disorders or tighten the skin.
With advanced procedures such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, laser therapy, radio frequency microneedling, HIFU (high intensity focused ultrasound), autohemotherapy, dermapen microneedling and more, we revitalize your skin to help rejuvenate and beautify it.

Operative Dermatologie

Operative dermatology

Surgical dermatology refers to the field of dermatology that deals with surgical procedures on the skin, the so-called “skin appendages” such as hair and nails and the underlying tissues. It includes both diagnostic and therapeutic measures.

Various procedures are used in surgical dermatology to remove skin lesions (changes in the skin), to treat benign or malignant skin tumors or to carry out cosmetic corrections. These include, for example, the excision (surgical removal) of skin tumors, laser surgery, cryosurgery (cold therapy) and electrosurgery. The treatment of scars, the removal of skin cysts and the performance of skin biopsies also fall within the scope of surgical dermatology. As a rule, the “excidates” – the removed tissue – are examined histologically for diseases.

Surgical dermatological interventions are usually performed under local anesthesia. Follow-up care includes monitoring the healing process, changing bandages, removing stitches and discussing any findings.

Photodynamic therapy (PDT)

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a medical procedure used in dermatology to treat actinic keratosis (a precursor to skin cancer) and basal cell carcinoma (a type of skin cancer).
PDT has the advantage of being able to selectively target diseased or abnormal tissues while leaving healthy tissues largely unaffected.
In the process of photodynamic therapy, the photosensitizing drug is first applied to the skin and wrapped with cling film and aluminum foil. This drug is absorbed by tissues or cells and concentrates mainly in diseased or abnormal cells.
Exposure to red light (recommendation based on our experience) or daylight activates the photosensitizing drug, damaging the abnormal cells, causing them to die and then break down. The procedure can be used over a large area and is well tolerated. The process involves the desired healing of inflammation with redness, swelling, itching or peeling of the skin. They usually disappear within a few days after the procedure.
Photodynamic therapy with a lamp, however, is not covered by health insurance, so the costs of the procedure should be covered on your own. Exceptions are recognized occupational diseases (BK 5103) where photodamage and pre-stage skin cancer have developed as a result of intense occupational exposure to UV radiation.
Photodynamische Therapie (PDT)
Infusionstherapie

Infusion therapy

Vitamin infusion therapy helps to detoxify the body, strengthen the immune system, boost metabolism, improve skin condition or slow down the aging process. The infusions can also help with the recovery after intense exercise or with relieving stress and fatigue.
Our vitamin infusion therapy is a safe and effective way to provide your body with the essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. With direct intravenous administration, the nutrients are absorbed into your bloodstream quickly and efficiently, providing maximum bioavailability.

Hair and nails

Are you struggling with hair loss? We know how distressing hair loss can be and offer effective solutions to restore hair growth and give you your confidence back.

In our dermatological practice, we are at your side to help you with this sensitive topic. By examining the scalp, analyzing the hair structure, using a plucking test and then, if necessary, blood testing or a histological examination, we investigate the causes and make an exact diagnosis. 

Building on this, we offer a variety of treatment options to stimulate hair growth – including drug therapies and non-surgical procedures such as PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy or mesotherapy.

Berufsdermatologie

Professional dermatology

Occupational dermatology is a specialized field within dermatology concerned with the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of skin conditions caused by occupational exposures. It deals with the effects of certain work environments, chemicals, materials and activities on skin health.
Occupational dermatology supports the prevention of work-related skin diseases, workplace safety and health protection as well as improving the quality of life and work ability of sick employees. The most common dermatological occupational diseases include hand eczema (occupational classification BK 5101) and non-melanoma skin cancer (BK 5103). We carry out a detailed diagnosis (e.g. contact allergy test) of the skin for a possible connection with the professional activity. If there is a corresponding suspicion, we will report it to the professional association. If the suspicion of an existing occupational disease is confirmed, you can take advantage of comprehensive and intensive advice and treatment at the expense of the BG.
