In hopes our masks might be coming off soon, we’re ready to try some beauty treatments that we’ve never heard of. From Sculptra to Sugarsmile, here are some of our absolute favorites.
We got to interview doctor Selma Uygun, who is a Düsseldorf-based plastic surgeon, holistic medic, and queen of non-invasive beauty treatments. Praised for trading invasive surgery for other alternatives, she focuses completely on her clientele’s spiritual wellness and delivering naturally beautiful, quick results – with little to no downtime. Here at NBGA Mag, we sat down with Dr. Uygun to discuss what beauty treatments she recommends now that our masks are coming off. Keep reading for more!
1) Sculptra: The Liquid Face/Body Lift
Sculptra can be used for various areas that are affected by the loss of volume. In contrast to hyaluronic acid fillers, which physically fill the skin, Sculptra works by stimulating the skin’s own natural collagen production. Sculptra is poly-L-lactic acid and is not a pure filler, such as hyaluronic acid, but a so-called bio-stimulator. Poly-L-lactic acid has been used in numerous medical products for many years.
The difference between hyaluronic acid fillers and Sculptra?
The treatment of wrinkles and volume deficits with Sculptra is a completely different approach than wrinkle injections with hyaluronic acid fillers. While hyaluronic fillers in varied strengths serve as direct volume fillers, Sculptra is a so-called biomodulator. A bio-stimulator has the ability to stimulate a certain effect in the tissue, e.g. volume increase through collagen build-up. The body’s own production of collagen fibers not only leads to an increase in volume, but also to a tightening of the tissue.

Hyaluron filler for supplementary regions that must not be treated with Sculptra.
What do I have to consider after a treatment?
After the treatment with Sculptra®, we do not recommend going to the sauna, steam bath, high UV exposure, solarium or intensive sporting activities for around two weeks. You can treat the following areas with Sculptra.
- Sunken temples
- Loss of volume cheeks
- Marionette folds (Merkel folds)
- Nasolabial fold
- Chin build-up
- Jawline contouring
- Butt (hip dips and enlargement)
2) Sugarsmile Gel Teeth Whitening
Active bleaching components of the Sugarsmile bleaching gel are activated by the cold LED light and thus neutralize organic pigmentation substances in the tooth enamel. Services offer teeth whitening from 40 minutes to 80 minutes. You will also find many additional/alternative teeth whitening products without fluoride and on an organic basis in our online shop. All without hydrogen peroxide, of course.
Most of the discoloration comes from food and luxury foods. Tobacco, smoking, tea, coffee, red wine, fruit juices, and colored lemonades, in short, anything that leaves heavy stains on white textiles can also stain teeth over time. Some dental and oral care products such as toothpaste or mouthwashes containing chlorhexidine or strongly fluoridated also leave their marks over time.
Cosmetic bleaching without peroxides gently and naturally whites your teeth. Up to twelve nuances are possible. With cosmetic teeth whitening without peroxides from Sugarsmile, teeth can be brighter by up to 9 shades within 30 minutes. To compare the result, your current tooth color will be compared before the treatment.
The result can last up to nine months. The sustainability of the treatment depends heavily on your lifestyle. Brush your teeth mornings and evenings, use activated charcoal and floss, and rinse your mouth once a day.
3) Morpheus Microneedling
Morpheus is an upgrade on microneedling like you’ve never seen before. It’s a combination of microneedling and fractional radiofrequency energy. This system consistently delivers stunning results for people who want to tighten skin, smooth wrinkles and restore a more youthful look to aging skin, with no surgery required.
Morpheus uses tiny needles to penetrate the skin, creating micro injuries that trigger natural regeneration, increasing production of collagen and elastin. It differs from other microneedling and radiofrequency treatments because it is able to deliver energy into the subdermal layer to recontour and remodel the underlying tissue.
This treatment will slim, sculpt, and remodel your tissue for a dramatic improvement in tone, texture, and tightness. This treatment reduces the visibility of scars, wrinkles, and stretch marks. The results of treatment improve, day by day, as your body produces greater quantities of skin-firming and volumizing collagen. The RF technology will not damage the surrounding tissues for faster healing. There’s no real downtime, but you’ll look slightly sunburned for a week. We love going to GoodSkin Clinics for our treatments.
