Aesthetic Medicine

 

Aesthetic medicine is a preventive and curative type of medicine aimed at improving the aspect of its patient using non-invasive treatments in order to highlight one’s positive aspects and correct possible imperfections that often cause social-relationship issues. Our specialists will indicate for each client the medical and/or aesthetic treatment required to fulfil their needs and achieve the best result.

Biostimulation

Biostimulation improves hydration and tissue function through the intradermal inoculation of important skin constituents such as hyaluronic acid, amino acids and glycerol. It slows down the ageing process and reduces imperfections such as wrinkles, hypotrophic scars and stretch marks. Excessively dry and dehydrated skin, superficial or deep skin ripples are caused by an inadequate deep hydration. Biostimulation aims at helping the dermis and skin cells reactivate the natural biological processes for a correct renewal: biostimulate means to provide the necessary means to restart all over again.

Wrinkle and furrow filling

Made injecting re-absorbable filling materials into the dermis, in order to improve the look of the face by increasing the volume of the lips or cheekbones or reducing the deeper wrinkles – i.e. nasogenien or glabellar wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid fillers are available in different concentrations, to be dosed depending on the type of correction required, such as the treatment of nasogenien folds, periwinkle wrinkles, glabellar wrinkles, front horizontal wrinkles and the so-called "crow's feet" or periocular wrinkles. It is even possible to increase the volume of lips and cheekbones.

Botox

Injections or infiltrations of botulinum toxin are used in aesthetic medicine to reduce expression wrinkles. These wrinkles are caused by the repeated contraction of the facial muscles that we activate every day - often without realising – mostly to express our emotions. Reducing the contraction of some mimic muscles of the face favours the distension of the overlying skin. While preserving one’s expression, it reduces the so-called expression lines, i.e. frontal, periocular, and peribuccal lines.

Belkyra

BELKYRA® is an effective treatment to reduce double chin. BELKYRA® is a synthetic drug that simulates the behaviour of the deoxycholic acid, a fat-degrading substance. The drug has a cytolytic action, i.e. when injected it breaks the membrane of the fat tissue. Thus, the fat “melts” and is then reabsorbed and eliminated by the body, just like when we are on a diet. The number of injections depends on the patient’s needs and target. Local anaesthesia is generally not required. 12 to 20 small injections per visit and 2-3 visits should be enough for most patients to have excellent results. Each treatment is made on average once a month. Patients with advanced level of double chin may need up to 50 injections per treatment and appointments every two weeks. In these cases, it may be necessary to have up to 6 treatments.

Hand skin rejuvenation

Excessive sun exposure and ageing change the aesthetic appearance of our hands. Aesthetic medicine offers a variety of treatments to rejuvenate the appearance of the back of the hand, restore elasticity and reduce skin pigmentation. We use our hands to introduce ourselves. They are the part of our body that is most exposed to ageing. To make the back of the hands seem younger, restore elasticity and reduce skin pigmentation, we use…

Hyperhidrosis

Hyperhidrosis begins at an early age and is more often seen in the palm and armpit area. This kind of disorder is often invalidating and causes difficulties and discomfort in personal relationships. The pathological sweating of the hands is generally the most annoying form of hyperhidrosis. The hands are the most exposed part of the body and have an important role in our professional and personal relationships as well as in our social life.
There are many medical treatments made with botulin. However, these treatments do not have a permanent effect and need to be repeated after some time. The botulinum toxin is indicated for the treatment of hyperhidrosis. Its mechanism of action blocks the nerve endings that activate the sweat glands. This simple treatment foresees the injection of botulin directly into the armpit, making 10-15 little injections homogeneously distributed in the area to be treated. The needles are very thin, thus the pain is little. The botulinum toxin takes some days to develop its action and results are generally visible within 7-10 days.
The treatment of hyperhidrosis with botulin is not permanent and lasts for about 4-6 months. In order to have a stable sweat reduction, the treatment needs to be repeated two or three times a year, depending on the patient’s needs. If the patient stops the treatment with botulin, his/her sweating will gradually return to the previous level and there will be no changes in the treated area.

Lip remodelling

After some time, the lips become thinner, their corners fall and the contours fade away.
Their colour change and this makes our face seem tired. The lips play a fundamental part on the look of one’s face.
They are an element of attraction and sensuality both in women and men. In most cases, the filling and remodelling of the lips is made using hyaluronic acid fillers. The treatment foresees microinjections of a biocompatible, safe and absorbable material along the border of the lips and on the perioral muscles in order to highlight the borders and fill them up as well as reduce perioral wrinkles or correct possible asymmetries – e.g. a lip thinner than the other. The purpose of the treatment is to increase the volume in a natural and harmonic manner, avoiding anti-aesthetic excesses.
