face treatments

As we get older, our skin ages with us and it is perfectly natural that it is not as elastic, fresh, and youthful as it used to be. The changes can best be seen on the face, with the appearance of forehead wrinkles, lines around the eyes, and around the mouth. As excellent experts in face anatomy, our experts will restore your youthful look and regenerate your skin with esthetic treatments using hyaluronic fillers, Botox, and the PRP treatment.

Which esthetic treatments do we do?

In our center, we emphasize high esthetics, which always guarantees perfect results, whether it is the esthetics of the smile or facial esthetics.

It is well known that dentists are very well acquainted with facial anatomy and are therefore very skilled with all the treatments done in the area of the face. Through additional specializations and professional education, we trained our employees, headed by Elena Štimac Vukojević, DDS for non-invasive esthetic facial treatments, like the hyaluronic dermal filler treatment, the Botox treatment, and the PRP treatment.


Why is the dentist an excellent choice for esthetic treatments?

High precision, skill, and excellent knowledge of facial anatomy are prerequisites for a safe esthetic treatment and an excellent result. Dentists are considered to be the most skillful when it comes to facial treatments, due to their everyday practice of working around the face and the precision required by their work. Also, creating esthetically perfect smiles is closely connected to symmetry and facial esthetics. The complexity of dental procedures and the necessity to perform the treatments as delicately and painlessly as possible enables dentists to specialize in esthetic facial treatments very easily.

In the Štimac Dental Medicine Center, we recognized the demand of our patients for high esthetics, that is why, apart from smile esthetics, we also specialize in esthetic facial treatments with hyaluronate, Botox, and the PRP treatment. Elena Štimac Vukojević, DDS our excellent doctor in charge of creating esthetically perfect smiles, puts great emphasis on the esthetics of the entire face in general, and after specializing in PRP treatments and the hyaluronic filler (hyaluronic acid) and Botox treatment, she is now a member of the Croatian Facial Esthetics Association.

As early as our twenties, the skin begins to age, and in the early thirties it begins to lose hyaluronic acid, collagen, elastin, and subdermal fat, which results in skin that does not shine, a tired and lifeless look.

Gravity and increased facial expressions have an additional effect on deep wrinkles and the creation of permanent fissures on our face. Skin that loses freshness and elasticity, and the creation of more pronounced wrinkles are the main signs of aging, and in order to return the youthful appearance to your skin you can find a solution in completely harmless, painless and non-invasive esthetic treatments like hyaluronic filler, Botox, or PRP treatments.

As early as age thirty, our skin begins to lose a valuable compound – hyaluronic acid. When we add nature and natural skin aging, as well as facial expressions, the result is the loss of volume and tired skin that does not shine. In the last several years, hyaluronic dermal fillers have become an absolute hit when it comes to non-invasive facial treatments and filling in wrinkles.

Hyaluronic dermal fillers consist of hyaluronic acid, a molecule that is naturally present in our cells. Hyaluronic acid plays an important role in the improvement of skin hydration and water retention, supporting the production of collagen, and healing. Due to its properties, the application of hyaluronic acid fillers has excellent effects for filling in wrinkles, softening rough lines and facial contours, shaping lips, lifting cheeks, reducing bags under the eyes, increasing lips, and it results in a fresh, youthful, and natural look of the face in general.



Facial expressions, like smiling, frowning, or surprised expressions, engage muscles that create fissures and deep wrinkles on the face, especially on the forehead, on the outside of the eyes, and between the eyebrows. This causes a tired, exhausted, and generally older appearance of the face, which can also be mitigated with the application of Botox – the most efficient and popular esthetic treatment in the world.

Botox is the natural purified protein created using the bacteria clostridum botulinum and its effects straighten all the lines in the face and reduce the signs of aging. The application of Botox (botulinum) is not an aggressive treatment, and it is ideal for those that are frightened by the surgical knife. It is usually used for the efficient removal of wrinkles, like forehead wrinkles caused by frowning, lines around the eyes, on the nose, between the eyebrows, as well as for face lifting or eyebrow raising.



A completely natural treatment based on your own blood plasma with a powerful effect on the regeneration and de-aging of your skin. For the PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) treatment, i.e. method, there are no side effects or allergic reactions, because it does not include injecting synthetic substances into the tissue, your own blood is used instead.

This method, also known as the “vampire treatment” shows excellent results for facial refreshing and achieving a youthful appearance of the face, and the changes are visible immediately after the first treatment. Real results are still expected one month after the treatment, and a new treatment is recommended every two to three months, depending on the indications.

Why choose esthetic facial treatments?

Esthetic facial treatments in our clinic are completely safe, harmless, and natural. The hyaluronic acid and Botox treatments are based on organic natural substances, while the basis of the PRP treatment is your own blood plasma. These popular esthetic treatments show excellent results for improving the appearance of the face and achieving a youthful look. There is no age limit for the application of dermal fillers and the treatments can start with the appearance of the first signs of aging and wrinkles. Dermal hyaluronic acid fillers mitigate facial skin aging and subtly make your face nicer by reducing and smoothing out wrinkles, restore volume and elasticity to the skin, create the appearance of lifting on the cheeks and chin, and nicely shape and define lips and facial features.

Botox has been used in esthetic medicine for more than 20 years, and back in 2002 it was approved by the American organization FDA for application in cosmetics. It is actually an organic and completely natural and harmless substance, and its application reduces the activity or function of specific muscles used for facial expressions and thus straightens wrinkles. Botox can be applied for an unlimited number of times, and we recommend pauses between treatments of at least four months, depending on the quantity of the applied Botox.

If you have dry, tired skin that lost its elasticity or you wish to slow down the aging process of your skin, a PRP treatment is an excellent solution. This innovative natural treatment is recommended for anyone who wants to avoid aggressive procedures and an artificial look, and preserve their natural and youthful appearance. With this treatment you will look fresh, rested, and invigorated, and you will remove the lifeless and tired appearance of your face. The PRP treatment of de-aging using blood plasma is primarily used for de-aging skin and for achieving smoothness and elasticity of the skin on the face, neck, and cleavage. It is an excellent procedure for reducing lines around the eyes, for nasolabial folds, smoking lines, lines around the mouth, laugh lines, and other small lines, and it can also reduce acne scars.

            Description of the application of hyaluronic dermal fillers

            The procedure for the application of hyaluronic dermal fillers in Štimac Center is completely painless because we use local anesthesia, which numbs the area around the mouth so the person does not feel absolutely nothing. The procedure is very brief, only several minutes.

            The results of the application last from 6 months up to one year, and considering that hyaluronic acid attracts water, with multiple repeated treatments, after the recommended number of months, the results and the effects of the treatments will be longer. This means that if we repeat the application of dermal fillers several times in a row, the effect of the last filler can extend to up to 2 years after the application.

            We can apply dermal fillers to larger parts of the face, like lips, cheeks, nose, or chin. Fillers are injected under the skin and the results are visible immediately because they increase the volume of the deeper part of the skin, which has the consequence of creating a fresh and natural look. One dose of hyaluronic fillers (1 ml) is sufficient for filling in and shaping lips (upper and lower), lightly filling in laugh lines, (nasolabial lines), or lightly lifting cheeks. The dermal filler is injected to the desired area using small needles and it momentarily creates a subtle skin volume.

            Description of the application of Botox

            The patients often describe the Botox application procedure as very pleasant and relaxing, and due to the anesthetic cream, which is used just before the treatment, the procedure is completely painless. The treatment starts by identifying which muscles participate in the creation of unwanted wrinkles, and then the Botox is gently injected in those muscles in small doses. This blocks the neural signals, which causes relaxation of the muscles, straightening, and removing wrinkles. The results of the application of Botox, after a single 50-unit treatment, are visible in only several days, and the effects last for 3-6 months. The regular application of Botox improves and extends its effect, and we recommend treatments 2-3 times per year.

            Description of the PRP treatment

            The PRP treatment procedure is very simple and quick, and it starts by extracting a small quantity of blood (up to 4 ml), which is then centrifuged in special devices to separate and obtain blood plasma rich in platelets. The platelets have beneficial effects for growth factors because they have a restorative effect on the skin, and they increase its elasticity, structure, and tone. Your blood plasma is gently injected into your skin. The procedure is completely painless, because an anesthetic cream is applied to your face before the treatment starts, which enables light numbing and a carefree feeling. The entire treatment lasts only 45 minutes.


            The PRP treatment, as well as the dermal fillers and Botox, have results that are visible immediately after the first treatment. These treatments provide the skin with a refreshed and youthful appearance momentarily. The dermal fillers provide volume and freshness to the skin immediately after the treatment, and the effects after the first application are visible for approximately 12 months. The effects and their duration will improve with regular use of the fillers. The results after the application of Botox are visible as soon as 2-7 days, as noticeable straightening and removal of lines, and they will last for approximately 6 months after the procedure. The Botox treatment can be repeated for an unlimited amount of times in regular intervals, and with regular use, in several years some lines may be completely erased.

            The PRP treatment is primarily used for skin de-aging, and the real results of refreshed and elastic skin are visible approximately one month after the first application. Due to its natural properties it has no side-effects and any possible redness, swelling, or pain will stop several hours after the procedure. The puncture marks will remain for approximately one hour after the treatment and then they will fully disappear. The application of powder or coloured creams is not recommended so the skin can breathe. The side-effects of Botox or dermal filler application are very rare and any possible redness, swelling, minimum pain, or allergic reactions usually stop after several hours, or in case of swelling several days.

            Because I fell off a bicycle as a child, I had problems with my front teeth and I was unhappy. Then I heard about Dr. Štimac through a humanitarian makeover and decided to visit her. As soon as I came in for my first visit, I was thrilled by the people at the front desk and the doctor herself. We arranged zirconium crowns, and within 10 days I had new teeth and did not have to hide my smile anymore. Thank you Dr. Maja, Dr. Lucija, and the entire staff of the Polyclinic Štimac!


            I am exceptionally grateful to Dr. Maja for my perfect new smile. I have to admit that I was afraid of installing implants, however, the procedure was completely painless and I almost did not feel a thing. The doctor is very professional, offers all the necessary information and leads her patients through the entire procedure, so my fear disappeared as soon as I first spoke to Dr. Maja.

            What wonderful people! I was with Dr. Filip at the first examination and decided on an instalment of an implant because I lost a tooth a year before due to the wrong treatment of another dentist! Dr. Filip is detailed, patient and really puts maximum effort in explaining the entire process of the instalment to me. Good job!

            Since I live in Germany, it was very important to me to finish with the work within a certain time period. We arranged an appointment through pictures and in 5 days I received my new teeth, new smile and all thanks to the amazing doctors at the Polyclinic Štimac! I am thrilled with my veneers and I definitely recommend them to everyone!
