Aesthetic medicine

 
 

Within the connective tissue of the dermis, collagen and elastin fibers create a network that provides the skin with structure, support, and elasticity. Fat cells and other molecules, such as hyaluronic acid, help to create volume beneath facial skin. Aging cuases this network of collagen and elastin fibers to break down and hyaluronic acid molecules and fat cells, responsible for creating volume, to deplete.

This breakdown and depletion of these molecules result in wrinkles and other changes to facial skin.

Minimally invasive, non-surgical medical aesthetic treatments may delay surgery or complement it.

The main treatments are energetic rejuvenation, dermal fillers, chemical and mechanical peels, mesolifts, and percutaneous hydrotomy.

Energetic rejuvenation or lifting

This method combines energetic stimulation on acupuncture points and injection of homeopathic products, which allow the true reconstruction of the cutaneous tissue. In this way we obtain a rejuvenation action that is both energetic and nourishing. The result is often spectacularly refreshed and toned skin.

Dermal fillers

Injectable fillers are one of the most commonly used facial rejuvenation techniques. Over time, the underlying tissues that keep our skin looking youthful and firm break down due to the effects of gravity, sun exposure, diet, genetic factors, and years of facial muscle movement. These factors all contribute to the development of lines, wrinkles, and creases in the face.

When used as standalone treatments or with other procedures, injectable fillers can reduce or eliminate wrinkles and scars, create fuller lips, and treat lipoatrophy, or fat loss beneath the skin. With little downtime and almost immediate results, injectable fillers offer a safe, effective method of restoring a smoother, more youthful appearance.

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is one of the most popular non-invasive cosmetic procedures performed today. Over time, factors such as aging, genetic factors, sun damage, acne, scarring, and enlarged pores can contribute to the formation of facial wrinkles and a rough skin texture on the face. Most commonly used to treat the face and neck, microderrmabrasion can successfully reduce the appearance of superficial wrinkles and scars, large pores, acne, and age spots, restoring a smoother, more youthful appearance.

Percutaneous Hydrotomy

Percutaneous Hydrotomy is a medical technique consisting in intradermal or subcutaneous injection of sodium chloride 0.9 %. It also permits concurrent or secondary administration of medicines selected for their known pharmacological properties and with a specific treatment aim. The so-called hydrotomy cushion thus created provides a therapeutic base for the injection of substances used in a targeted way at the locoregional level. Injection may be performed continuously or discontinuously depending upon what is known as the tumescent technique.

Post-surgical and scar fibrosis

Fibrosis is defined as an exaggerated and chaotic reorganization of the connective tissue and  the cellular matrix support. It can follow a physical, local chemical traumatism or a surgical operation (e.g. after an operation for a tummy tuck).
The fibrous surrounding sometimes compress a nerve root, causing pain due to the "cardboard" or hardened aspect of  the affected area. Some microcirculatory disorders may be associated.
Percutaneous Hydrotomy enables hydration and fibrosclerotic detoxification of subcutaneous tissues. The use of organic Silicon and E and A vitamins in vasodilator protocol has revolutionized the fibrosis treatment recently, restoring new plasticity and improving the appearance of the post-surgical scar. 

Carpal tunnel syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome is due to a compression of the median nerve in the wrist area. This phenomena may be related to a thickening or shrinkage of the carpal anterior ligament, , to wrist arthritis, or to tendonitis. The patient feels a tingling or numbing sensation at night and a low sensibility of the three first fingers.

Pressure on the nerve must be relieved by hydrating the extracellular matrix, with a subsequent injection of micronutrients, including a B-group vitamin complex, magnesium and organic silicon for its anti-fibrosis action. Mesochelation is used to dissolve calcifications in the hardening of tissues. If Mesochelation with EDTA (ethyl diamine tetra acetic acid) and local vasodilators are used together with hydrotomy, a surgical procedure can sometimes be avoided.

Cellulite

Accumulations of lipodystrophic cells (fatty cells) with water retention are believed to be the main causes of cellulite.  In some cases, if not treated, it may lead to oedema, discomfort, and aesthetic imperfections. 
The injection of products to reinforce the venolymphatic system can ensure better elasticity of the vessel walls to improve “pumping” action and venolymphatic return. The reinforcement of the collagen fibres (silicium) helps to fight skin slackening. Finally, reabsorption of fat cells is also ensured by lipolytic agents.

Hair loss

Chronic autotoxicity of the hair follicles with deficient microcirculation may lead to hair loss.
Treatment involves all the regenerative products (vitamin B, magnesium, trace elements) which, however, must be combined with meso-vaccination to provide immunological stimulation of the hair follicles for a lasting “memory” effect. Meso-vaccination is the stimulation of the immuno-incompetent mucous membrane in a controlled and systematic manner to stimulate its immune defences. The microcirculation must also be strengthened.
