Dr Costas Papageorgiou NYDG Treatment List
The Wellness Clinic is one of a selective number of practices to offer 3D facial imaging – a pioneering technology that allows expert physicians like Dr Costas Papageorgiou to assess three/dimensionally the impact of ageing on face and neck contours. The aim? To devise a unique treatment plan tailored to your own anatomy and facial proportions, optimising volume deficiency and softening asymmetry for a staged rejuvenated result that is being perceived as enhanced light reflection and freshness of the face.
This facial remodelling procedure works to restore facial symmetry and youthful contours by combining hyaluronic-acid gel fillers and wrinkle-smoothing injections in a single session. Like a subtle mini face lift, the Face Balancing Lift has an immediate and natural-looking outcome with minimal recovery time, while 3D imaging technology is used to assess the facial contours and customise the procedure to the individual needs of each patient.
Facial fillers are used to maintain volume in the face, and thus help to restore or prolong a youthful appearance. By functioning as ‘collagen replacement’ or ‘soft tissue enhancement’ and targeting the sites where natural fat pads are depleted, facial-filler injections take only minutes to perform and the aesthetic results are immediate. Dr Papageorgiou applies minimally invasive techniques and uses the latest generation of FDA-approved fillers that have enhanced safety and improved longevity.
Botulinum toxin is an FDA-approved treatment for fine lines and wrinkles, and is extremely effective at easing the over-contracted muscles that cause the surface of the skin to look tired or stressed. The treatment works by strategically balancing overactive muscles so that facial wrinkles and lines become less noticeable. As a result, patients can achieve an eyelid lift, a smoother forehead or smoothing of horizontal neck lines. Results are visible within four to 10 days and can last for four to six months.
Experience a new method of facial remodelling via a superficial intradermal injection of a complex of high- and low-molecular-weight hyaluronic acid. Two sessions can counteract the reduction of hyaluronic acid in the skin, restoring hydration, elasticity and skin tone. Notable for its ability to flow uniformly through entire anatomical areas after injection, Profhilo can improve elasticity in challenging areas such as the neck and inner arms, where conventional fillers are not effective.
By replenishing volume loss in the most expressive part of the face, this 3D reconstruction (augmenting blepharoplasty) works to reverse age-related changes and deflation in the eyelid and eyebrow area through a staged approach devised by Dr Papageorgiou. The E-lift can function as a mini eyelid and brow lift, and help to improve eyebrow deflation, reduce under-eye circles and reverse a fatigued appearance in a completely natural-looking way.
Dr Papageorgiou’s hybrid approach to lip rejuvenation targets anatomic changes of the bone structure and lip fat pads, as well as the action of the superficial lip muscles. A cut above conventional techniques, his approach revitalises the lip anatomy by combining medium and low viscosity hyaluronic gel fillers with microdroplets of muscle modulators. The treatment supports the collapsed lip structures, volumises the deflated lip and addresses fine lines and wrinkles by hydrating the surface of the lip. The procedure aims to improve the 3D projection without altering its aesthetic appearance.
Masseter hypertrophy is a clinical phenomenon characterised by a soft swelling near the angle of the jawbone that changes the shape of the lower face. Botulinum toxin injections can create an aesthetically slimmer, smoother jawline, and a more ‘heart-shaped’ face. The toxin selectively remodels the masseter over time, leading to an overall reduction in the size and projection of the jaw. Patients typically notice reshaping of the jawline at six weeks.
This bespoke programme of skin revitalisation employs a powerful cocktail of proteins (growth factors) that stimulate cell regeneration using a patient’s own cell biology. The procedure uses NYDG state-of-the-art ACP/Arthrex system, which yields a concentration of growth factors.
A process employing sophisticated laser platforms targeting the vascular plexus (veins and capillaries) in the upper and lower eyelid.
This plexus contributes to the dark hue of the eyelid skin and tends to become more prominent with age as a result of accumulative inflammation, weakening of the vascular wall tone, loss of skin elasticity as well as congenital and intrinsic biological factors.
By addressing and softening this area, you can reinstate skin clarity and improve dark circles and light reflection. When combined with conservative lower eyelid volume restoration with hyaluronic gel fillers as well as energy-based devices, it can have a transformative effect on the most expressive area of the face.
Ultherapy is a nonsurgical treatment of the face, neck and décolletage that uses powerful ultrasound waves to stimulate a gradual remodelling and lifting effect. Ultrasound energy targets the deeper structural layers of the skin, which are usually tangled during cosmetic surgery, without disrupting the surface of the skin. By stimulating the body’s natural renewal pathways and collagen production, the regenerative effect of the treatment should manifest over several months, working to achieve a natural-looking result. The treatment can be ideal for patients who are not surgical candidates and desire discreet ways to enhance their looks. Treatments are customised to suit each patient
EMface is latest innovation in energy based devices that utilises the simultaneous application of High Intensity Focused Electrical Muscle Stimulation (HIFESM) and Synchronised Radiofrequency (RF) to strengthen a selective group of facial muscles, aiming to improve their lifting action on the face.
Devised by Dr Papageorgiou, this signature method of facial rejuvenation employs the regenerative and lifting effects of multi-layered energy waves (ultrasound, multi-wavelength light and laser) in a single session, targeting all layers of the face, from the superficial epidermis to the deeper muscular layers. Thanks to the stimulation of metabolically active cells and collagen production, the regenerative effect of the Hybrid will manifest itself over several weeks or months. Results are expected to last for up to two years.
This FDA-approved fat-remodelling procedure uses light-based technology to help disrupt and eliminate unwanted fat pockets under the chin in as little as 25 minutes. Dead fat cells are naturally metabolised over time, which should result in a slimmer and more defined appearance of the jawline and neck. Results are seen as quickly as six weeks after the procedure, with final results typically achieved at 12 weeks. Laser-assisted lipolysis can replace surgical liposuction, which can be ideal for patients who desire refinement of the chin and neck area without the downtime of a surgical intervention. Individual treatment protocols apply and outcomes are assessed with 3D-imaging technology.
Male faces have unique anatomical characteristics that require sophisticated approaches to achieve a natural look. Dr Papageorgiou offers the latest minimally invasive procedures and rejuvenating treatments, customised to the needs of male faces. By implementing a wide platform of anti-ageing agents and technologies, subtle enhancements are sufficient to correct weak or unbalanced features, and enhance masculine contours using a staged and discreet approach.
Bro-tox is a specialised technique for relaxing fine lines and wrinkles in men’s faces while retaining some ruggedness and animation. Bro-tox is generally quick and easy: it is often referred to as a ‘lunchtime procedure’, meaning that it can be scheduled during a lunch break or a free afternoon as it requires no downtime afterwards. Results are expected to last up to six months.
Dr Papageorgiou’s Male rejuvenating procedure combines the latest innovations in noninvasive cosmetic dermatology to help redefine the male jawline and reduce the appearance of laxity in the lower face, chin and neck area. The treatment combines: 1) ultrasound waves, a nonsurgical ultrasound treatment that lifts, tones and tightens loose skin in the deep muscles of the neck and lower face; 2) radio frequency waves that aim to lift sagging facial and neck skin; 3) Sculptsure, a noninvasive laser procedure for reducing fat below and around the chin, the submental area and the neck for a more chiselled jawline; and 4) hyaluronic gel structuring, a technique that works to add structure and definition to the jawline and chin with an immediate effect. Upon completion of the two hour treatment, and for a period of 1 to 2 years, men can experience a more defined and youthful jawline with visible reduction of the fatty deposits under the neck, tightening of the skin, and reduction of jowls.nydg signature facials.
Under the medical direction of Dr Papageorgiou, NYDG offers rejuvenating clinical facials that deliver lasting results. Using 3D facial imaging and cutting-edge technologies to totally customise treatment plans, their approach blends cosmetic benefits with dermatological science to tackle everything from acne and rosacea to signs of ageing.
Enjoy an instantly refreshing and revitalising boost thanks to hydradermabrasion, a noninvasive skin-resurfacing technology that helps to promote healthy-looking skin. The treatment involves several stages, during which layers of exfoliating agents, hyaluronic acid, vitamins and antioxidants are infused into the skin, aiming to extract dead cells, then cleanse, nourish and hydrate the face. The treatment specifically targets dehydration, open pores, acne and oily congestion.
During this hydrating treatment, high-pressure hyperbaric oxygen is used to deliver lightweight hyaluronic acid and a powerful cocktail of vitamins, botanical peptides and antioxidants. The lightweight version of hyaluronic acid maximises dispersion of the infused nutrients, helping to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and improve texture and overall radiance.
This painless laser-induced rejuvenation process uses rays of powerful light energy to target the deeper layers of the skin without harming the overlying epidermis. Clinical studies have shown that this regeneration phase works to energise the cells, stimulate collagen production, and help reverse damage inflicted on the face by ultraviolet
radiation and ageing. The 1064nm laser waves not only reach the deeper layers of the skin, but also are less absorbed by melanin, making the treatment a safe option for darker skin or for tanned patients. An induction phase of three sessions is recommended to maximise results.
An instantly revitalising facial booster that fuses hydradermabrasion, a noninvasive resurfacing technology, with a laser-induced rejuvenation process aiming to cleanse, infuse, hydrate and regenerate the entire face and neck area.
A super-refined revitalising treatment which combines in a single session cutting edge technologies aiming to regenerate, infuse and hydrate the entire face and neck area.
Devised by Dr Papageorgiou the Trilogy Energy Lift is a 3-step multi platform energy based facial that employs an innovative combination of hydraexfoliation, lasergenesis and radio frequency waves to address skin laxity on the eyelid, face and neck areas. Over a course of four to six treatments, spaced two weeks apart, the treatment remodels the dermal layers of the face and neck by helping to stimulate new collagen growth.
A customised laser-induced method formulated for cumulative environmental stress, skin inflammation, sun damage and rosacea-prone skin. Incorporating advanced light and laser therapies and a medical prescription regime, this treatment strengthens the skin and reduces inflammation, redness and pigmentation. It also helps to desensitise skin to the triggers of inflammation.
The Anti/Inflammation Medical Facial is a bespoke treatment scientifically formulated by Dr Costas Papageorgiou for hypersensitive and rosacea-prone skin. Incorporating advanced light and laser therapies, medical grade cosmeceuticals and anti-inflammation agents , the treatment helps to strengthen the skin, reduce inflammation, cumulative sun damage and rosacea vadculsr changes, as well as desensitise the skin to the triggers of inflammation. The treatment course improves the texture and tone of the complexion of the skin; reduces vascularity and capillaries of the face; helps to prevent rosacea from progressing to more advanced stages. This intensive medical grade treatment simultaneously prevents and corrects the signs of ageing by helping to combat freeradical damage and encouraging skin renewal. This custom-facial is suitable for all skin types and colours, and works effectively for both men and women.
Combining the power of 4 technologies, Hydradermabrasion, Laser Genesis, LimeLight Illumino-Therapy and Photo Bionic waves, this customised treatment can stabilise the inflammatory triggers of the skin and slow down the production of sebum. A combination of reversible thermal damage technologies to sebaceous glands can achieve long term remission from acne and also stimulate collagen regeneration to enhance the recovery process and skin texture.
Using LED light-based therapy, this facial helps to treat surface lines and wrinkles without visibly disturbing the surface of the skin. In the same way that plants use chlorophyll to convert sunlight into plant tissue, waves in the red-infrared spectrum can trigger a natural biostimulatory effect on the face. Regular use is one of the least invasive ways to reverse the signs of ageing, as the waves can help to repair the protective barrier on the skin’s surface, improve hydration levels, combat oxidative stress and UV damage, and stimulate skin renewal for an improved texture. The full course of Gentle Wave treatment typically involves 12 soothing sessions, spaced at regular intervals a week or two apart.
A patented gold-plated microneedling infusion system that painlessly delivers customised solutions into the skin at the ideal depth of 600 microns. Aquagold is the new generation of micro channeling mesotherapy that can deliver customised nutritional ingredients into the dermis and stimulate cellular renewal. The treatment has no downtime and is suitable for the face, eyelids, neck, chest and back of the hands. Serial treatments can improve acne and enlarged pores, texture irregularities, fine lines and wrinkles, boosting overall skin radiance.
Collagen induction therapy is a minimally invasive skin-rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of an automated device to create a controlled channel through which cells are triggered to produce new collagen and elastin. Through the resulting production of new collagen, there should be an improvement in skin texture and firmness, as well as a reduction in scars, pore size and stretch marks. The procedure has minimal downtime, and can be further personalised by combining trans-epidermal delivery of powerful antioxidants, peptides and nutrient serums. Some redness may occur immediately after treatment, which usually subsides by the next day.
Titan is a next-generation infrared light that remodels loose skin on the face, neck and body areas. The advanced Titan technology uses light energy to heat the dermis well below the surface, helping to stimulate the production of collagen, initiate the skin’s own process of repair, and enhance tone and elasticity. Serial treatments spaced four weeks apart can result in visibly tighter, and more toned and resilient skin.
Exilis Elite employs an innovative combination of ultrasound and radio frequency to address skin laxity as well as help reshape excessive fat deposits in the submental area. Over a course of four treatments, spaced two weeks apart, the radio-frequency energy works to remodel the dermal layer of the skin by helping to stimulate new collagen growth. This can help to lift and tighten excess skin, making it ideal for redefining the facial contours and jawline. Maintenance sessions every six months are recommended to optimise and maintain results.
NYDG’s signature Triad Facial works to deliver the cosmetic boost of a facial with longer-term dermatological benefits. Skin texture and tone are visibly improved, collagen production is boosted and, when undertaken regularly, the Triad Facial can help to reverse the damage inflicted on the face from acne, rosacea, UV radiation and ageing.

Laser Fat Sculpting is the latest technology for fat-remodelling procedures. It employs light-based technology to help disrupt and eliminate unwanted fat pockets in the abdomen, waistline, thighs, flanks and inner arms within 25 minutes and with no downtime. Results can be seen in as little as six weeks; final results are typically achieved at 12 weeks. Two to three sessions are usually required to achieve the desired outcome. With each session, up to 24 per cent of targeted body fat is removed through a comfortable experience that doesn’t involve freezing or suction, or result in discomfort during or after treatment. Results may vary depending on age, gender, lifestyle and the metabolic rate of each patient. Individual treatment protocols apply and outcomes are assessed with 3D-imaging technology.
This technique involves controlled cooling of unwanted fat cells in all areas of the body. Each treatment cycle (35 minutes) will help to reduce subcutaneous fat in the target area by up to 25 per cent. For this reason, it is considered a lunchtime treatment, as it allows patients to go back to work or carry on with their normal daily activities. As each treatment plan is bespoke, a consultation is carried out using 3D imaging to assess the body contours from different angles in order to focus on specific areas. Patients usually require a course of two sessions, spaced three months apart. Individual results may vary.
Course of 4 sessions per area - Exilis Elite employs an innovative combination of ultrasound and radio frequency to address skin laxity as well as reshape subtle fat deposits in the abdomen, flanks, thighs and inner arms. Over a course of four treatments, spaced two weeks apart, the radio-frequency energy can help remodel the dermal layer of the skin by stimulating new collagen growth, thereby helping to lift and tighten excess skin. In addition, the device can be set to target stubborn fat deposits and cellulite, allowing the body’s defences to break down and eliminate the fat layers. Virtually any area of the body can be treated, thanks to the precisely engineered applicator. The Exilis Elite treatment is a fast, safe and effective procedure for all skin types, and offers noticeable results with minimal downtime.
A customised treatment aiming to restore volume loss, reverse sun damage and optimise skin texture in the most visible part of the body. By combining the power of LaserGenesis, LimeLight Illumino-Therapy, Oxygen Infusion and Profhilo bioremodelling ( a complex of high-and low-molecular-weight hyaluronic acid), this customised treatment can stimulate collagen regeneration, replenish atrophy and reverse brown spots and sun damage. A course of 2 sessions is recommended to optimise outcomes.
Morpheus8 is a bio-stimulatory energy-based device which utilises our own body’s repair mechanisms, aiming to reduce the appearance of fine lines and improve areas of skin laxity.
The Morpheus8 platform is ideal for all areas of the face, neck and body resulting in skin tightening and lifting as well as optimising skin texture.
Morpheus8 fractional radiofrequency and micro-needling patented technologies have the ability to target deeper layers of the dermis and stimulate fibroblast activity and neocollagenesis. With selective depth protocols, Morpheus can also target and remodel subcutaneous fat as well as tightening and resurfacing the superficial layer of the skin for a smoother texture.
By virtue of the patented gold coating on the microneedles the ablative radiofrequency waves are delivered with high precision at selective depths for deeper subdermal tightening. As gold insulates the micro-needles, the energy is delivered directly to the targeted areas thus reducing downtime by minimising heat exposure to the surface of the skin and ensuring the treatment is safe for all skin types.
Morpheus8 is an ideal treatment option for patients who would like to improve their facial and body appearance without undergoing surgical procedures and can also be used to help patients who have acne scars and stretch marks.
Due to the bio-stimulatory effect of the treatment and gradual collagen and elastic remodelling results manifest three months following the treatment. Over the course of six-weeks, collagen that is broken down during a Morpheus8 treatment reforms and connective tissues become much tighter and stronger. The face is lifted and volume is added to deflated areas.
Treatment protocols involve three sessions four to six weeks apart, each treatment plan is tailored to achieve individual outcomes.
