ORANJESTAD – Yesterday marked a momentous event in the world of aesthetic medicine, with the grand opening of Cosmedica. This new clinic, offering state-of-the-art services of fillers and Botox, is proud to be associated with the renowned skincare brand La Roche-Posay.
Leading this venture are two esteemed medical professionals – Dr. Noreen Michelle Vingerhoedt and Dr. Desirée Martina Alida Poortinga-van den Berg.
Dr. Noreen Michelle Vingerhoedt, a dedicated Medical Doctor with an impressive portfolio, is also an Orthopedic Trauma Surgeon and a Cosmetisch arts KNMG. With a Master in Business Administration degree, she brings a unique blend of medical expertise and business acumen to the table1.
Joining her is Dr. Desirée Martina Alida Poortinga-van den Berg, a Cosmetic Doctor at Novi Clinic, Netherlands. Dr. Poortinga-van den Berg has a diverse skill set, specializing in various fields including cosmetic and aesthetic medicine, preventive medicine, and nutrition. She also has a special interest in women’s health, infertility, and men’s health.
Cosmedica’s partnership with La Roche-Posay ensures that they offer the best in skincare. La Roche-Posay, with a history that stretches back to the 1400s, is a brand synonymous with dermatological excellence. It goes beyond international cosmetics regulations to deliver safe, effective, and dermatologist-tested products.
The clinic provides minimally invasive cosmetic treatments of Botox and dermal fillers. Botox, a purified form of the botulinum toxin, is used to minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles caused by facial expressions. It works by freezing muscle movement in the areas where it is injected, thereby softening, reducing, or even removing certain wrinkles.
Dermal fillers, on the other hand, contain ingredients that add fullness to areas that have thinned due to aging. The substances used in dermal fillers include calcium hydroxylapatite, hyaluronic acid, polyalkylimide, polylactic acid, and polymethyl-methacrylate microspheres (PMMA). These substances are designed to treat different signs of aging or other cosmetic issues and add volume and fullness beneath the surface of the skin.
With this grand opening, Cosmedica aims to be a pioneer in the world of cosmetic and aesthetic medicine. With the leadership of Dr. Vingerhoedt and Dr. Poortinga-van den Berg, and their partnership with La Roche-Posay, Cosmedica is set to provide top-notch services that cater to their clients’ beauty and wellness needs.
