1. We only use top quality, officially registered products (Botox and fillers).
It goes without saying that the only way to achieve attractive and lasting results without health problems is to work with the best available products. For us this is a fundamental prerequisite, which is why we only work with the safest and highest quality injectables on the market, and why we always use products from the most reputable manufacturers. All our injectables are officially registered and approved, both in Belgium and the Netherlands as well as in the European Union and the United States (FDA approval).
After the treatment we will let you take the labelling of the product used home with you so that you can be entirely confident of this. As a patient it is your absolute right to know exactly which product you have been treated with (brand and quantity). Moreover, your doctor is legally obliged to provide you with this information, in accordance with Article 18 §1 point 3 of the Belgian Law of 23 of May 2013. This means that you can be entirely confident that you have not been treated with a cheaper unlicensed product of unknown origin.
2. We use the body’s own natural products and/or animal-friendly products as far as possible.
All our injectables, including hyaluronic acid (Teosyal, Juvederm, Restylane), calcium hydroxyapatite (Radiesse), Skin Boosters and PRP are natural products: they naturally occur in our own bodies.
We use only original Botox ® manufactured by Allergan. This is the only botulinum toxin that is not tested for strength on animals. We respect and share the views of animal rights organizations.
3. Each individual patient is unique and so every treatment is unique.
Every face has its own unique proportions, its own unique facial expressions and its own unique appearance. Our treatments are all made to measure: they are designed and tailored to the needs of each individual, unique patient and not to some generalized ‘one size fits all’ standard formula. This is the only way to achieve the most attractive and most natural-looking results.
4. Subtle combination treatments at multiple levels.
The Medical Art Clinic specializes in subtle combination treatments using a variety of treatment techniques at different levels. Dr Rafael Marques has developed these over the years on the basis of his experience and expertise.
Every single detail is important. By combining a series of subtle, but significant modifications, we are able to obtain the most attractive and natural effects.
5. Dr Rafael Marques’s experience in this field.
Dr Rafael Marques has been a full-time aesthetic physician specialized in injectables, for 12 years. He has carried out more than 30,000 injectable treatments and specializes in optimizing your appearance using a number of subtle but fundamental changes.
6. Medical Art Clinic: beauty and aesthetics at all levels.
The Medical Art Clinic has been conceived and designed for the comfort and welfare of the patient with attention paid to every detail, both in the fitting-out of the clinic and with regard to the treatments we offer.
The Medical Art Clinic is housed in a genuine quayside building right on the water inside the marina and a stone’s throw from the Museum Aan de Stroom (MAS) in the “het Eilandje” development. The clinic occupies a former merchant’s warehouse that was fully renovated in 2012 by architect Mauro Poponcini and interior designer Victor Simoni. It is within 15 minutes walk of the city centre.
