Intense dermabrasion can be performed with local anaesthesia to attenuate wrinkles, such as those of the upper lip usually called ‘bar code’.
A technique where medication is injected subcutaneously ( immediately under the skin), using very small doses of compounded medications that are administered in specific areas, depending on the condition being treated. For example: fat reduction, tissue rehydration, alopecia.
Sclerotherapy of varicose veins (spiders): this treatment uses an injection of a special chemical (sclerosant) into the small vein to damage and scar its inside lining, causing the vein to close.
Botulinum toxin: In its more common cosmetic usage, botulinum toxin works by stopping the transmission of nerve impulses to the facial muscles that contract and cause wrinkles, such as frown-lines between the eyebrows and ‘crows feet’ around the eyes.
Fillers work by bulking up facial tissue, and can be used to fill in lines and contour dips in the face or any other part of the body. Either they can be obtained from the patient – autogenously - such as adipose tissue, or synthetic hyaluronic acid, among others.
Pneumatic pressotherapy consists of mechanic compression of the limb through a compression chamber system (pumped in a sequential way) controlled by a computer. Compressive limb therapy is a valid method to aid correct venous circulation, reducing muscular tension caused by stress or chronic or acute pain. Via its special pumping action, it aids venous return, increasing supply to the tissues and their correct physiological renewal.
Radiofrequency (RF) is an electrical current. The main idea behind its use on the skin is its ability to deliver heat to tissue non-specifically to increase collagen production and to generate tightening effects in areas like cheeks and eyebrows.
Russian waves treatment aims to stimulate muscles by external means. This treatment is performed by electro-stimulation of the neuromuscular nerve terminals causing muscles to contract rhythmically. This contraction not only promotes circulation of tissues and consumption of calories but tonifies and strengthens muscles.
