Facial Treatments

What are wrinkles? They are marks on our skin, generated by the repeated contraction of the facial muscles acting on the skin that has lost elasticity and hydration over time.

How can we treat them? There are several ways to treat them, depending on the type of skin, depth of the wrinkle, location:

  • Treatment with Hyaluronic Acid
  • Treatment with Smooth Threads
  • Chemical Peeling Treatment

What is Bruxism?

Teeth grinding and jaw clenching (also called bruxism) is often related to stress or anxiety. It doesn’t always cause symptoms but some people get facial pain and headaches, and it can wear down your teeth over time. Most people who grind their teeth and clench their jaw aren’t aware they’re doing it.

It can give annoying symptoms such as facial pain, headache, pain in the neck, wear or fracture of teeth …

How can we treat it?

There are several ways to treat bruxism. We do it with botulinum toxin (better known as Botox, although there are other commercial brands) that relaxes the facial muscles.

Treatment

Botulinum toxin is injected into the masseter muscles to relax the muscle. This decreases the symptoms associated with bruxism (face pain, headache, neck pain).

It can also improve the facial appearance, by reducing the size of the masseter muscles achieving a more harmonious face.

Duration: 6 – 12 months

Results: Immediate

Treatment duration: 15 – 30 minutes

Why would you lift your eyebrows?

Many patients want to raise the eyebrow’s tail, to change the appearance of the eyebrow, which stylizes the eyebrow and improves the facial appearance. With the passage of time, the eyebrows tend to sag, giving you a sad or angry appearance. An eyebrow lift, stylizes your eyebrows and gives you a more youthful look.

Hoe does it work?

For this technique, a special hyaluronic acid is used for lips. Depending on the effect we want to achieve, we must inject the product in different areas, using different amounts, and looking for symmetry and balance.

We will have to use different hyaluronic acids according to get the perfect result (moisturize, give more volume to the lip, or re-structure the filter of the mouth).

Treatment with Hyaluronic Acid.

Hyaluronic acid is applied on the labial rim to demarcate it, or in the thickness of the lip to increase the volume.

The right amount must be injected, so as not to exceed the desired result by the patient, and tto achieve asymmetrical and harmonious lip.

It is a treatment that consists of shaping and modeling the nose through small infiltrations in certain strategic points, achieving a more harmonious and aesthetic profile. The procedure achieves an immediate change without modifying the facial features.

Nose rhomodelation allows to correct slight defects to harmonize the profile of noses with a pronounced trestle or with a “fallen tip”. It is about harmonizing the patient’s face without requiring a surgical intervention when the changesare not too substantial.

What are the dark circles under my eyes?

They are marks that appear below the eye (in the lower eye contour).

They can appear for several reasons: the skin in the area is very thin (and allows the veins that pass under the skin to be “seen”), while other structural changes that favor them arise (for example: changes in the bone structure of the face).

The treatment serves to level these two planes, the infiltrations produced will immediately make the tired look disappear, remove wrinkles due to flaccidity under the lower eyelid and reduce the size of the bags under your eyes. An effect of attenuation of the coloration of the eyecup is also achieved.

How do we treat this?

We can perform the treatment with:

  • Hyaluronic acid
  • Treatment with Smooth Thread

Double Chin?

The double chin is the bulge or volume of fat, of flaccid skin or of both, that hangs under the chin.

To eliminate the double chin, it is necessary to know if it is an excess of fat, or flaccidity of the skin in the area.

In case it is a flaccidity of the area, it can be corrected by threads or Radiesse

In case of excess fat, you can resort to treatment with Belkyra (medicine that is injected under the skin, destroying fat cells).

How can we treat it?

We can perform the treatment with:

  • Treatment with Smooth Thread
  • Radiesse treatment
  • Belkyra

What is the Chemical Peel?

A chemical peel is a solution of exfoliating substances, usually acids, which are applied on the skin surface to renew the layers of the skin.

It consists of the application of a chemical agent (that irritates the skin), to produce the elimination of the superficial layer of the skin (epidermis) and part of the dermis (part that is below the epidermis).

The medical application of the chemical peel can reach from the most superficial to the deepest layers, depending on the lesions that the patient wishes to eliminate:

  • Brown spots produced by the sun
  • Acne and acne scars
  • Fine wrinkles
  • Texture of the skin.

Chemical Peeling Treatment

The peeling exfoliating substances spread in the area to be treated by very thin layers, which are allowed to act on the skin for a few minutes.

The effect begins to be seen a few hours later, and for several days (the treated skin is giving way to a new, smoother, softer and better quality.) The most appropriate type of chemical peel should be determined together with a doctor after a close examination.

What are patients looking for?

Patients of this treatment are mostly looking to restore volume to the area of ​​the cheekbone, which allows to redefine the face, revitalize the area and improve some other features (such as the nasolabial fold).

In youth, the face forms a triangle with the base located in the area of ​​the cheekbones and the apex in the chin area. This is what we call the “triangle of youth.” Natural facial aging involves the loss of volume and bone in the area of ​​the cheekbones, causing that triangle to reverse.

With the filling and cheek augmentation treatment, we recovered the volume in the middle area of ​​the face using high density cross-linked hyaluronic acid and calcium hydroxyapatite. It is possible to redefine the face in addition to revitalizing the zone contributing luminosity. The cheekbones rise, define and recover firmness.

How does the treatment work?

Depending on the objective of the client, we can perform the treatment with:

  • Hyaluronic acid
  • Radiesse treatment

What is the Gingival Smile (Gummy smile)?

A smile that shows the gums when smiling (it is considered “normal” up to 2mm above the upper teeth).

How can we treat it?

Since the causes can be varied, there are different treatments. The doctor should determine the most appropriate together with the patient during a consultation.

Treatment

Botulinum toxin is one of the most effective treatments for gingival (gummy) smile and the least invasive. Applied in the levator muscle of the upper lip and in the common levator muscle of the upper lip and the nasal wing, it prevents the upper lip from rising too high, showing the gums in an unsightly way.

What are the Nasolabial folds?

The nasolabial folds are the wrinkles that form between the fins of the nose and the corners of the lips. They are the first lines of expression that appear on the face due to the amount of muscles we have in our mouth, the movements we make when smiling and the loss of malar fat.

Its depth increases with the passage of years, by the flaccidity of the skin, and by the natural lowering of the fatty compartment of the cheek. With the treatment of these wrinkles, the face gets a much younger look.

How can we treat it?

Depending on the patients wishes, we can perform the treatment with:

  • Hyaluronic acid
  • Treatment with Smooth Thread
  • Radiesse treatment

What are facial vitamins?

This  is a cocktail of vitamins and hyaluronic acid with which we treat the skin of the face, neck, décolleté and hands by means of small intradermal injections.

Body Treatments

What is Cellulite?

It is an alteration of the dermis of the skin, and of the layer of superficial fatty tissue. Patients complain of dimples in different areas of the body (what is known as “orange peel”). Its exact causes are not known, there are several theories about its origin.

There are different types of cellulite:

Edematous: The “orange peel” appears when pressing on the area (for example when sitting or contracting the muscles)

Soft: The “orange peel” appears suddenly without reason.

Fibrous: The “orange peel” is seen spontaneously, and also has “nodules” between the dimples. This can cause pain to the patient.

How can we treat it?

There are several ways to treat cellulitis, depending on the type you have. We propose the following:

  • Treatment with Alidya
  • Treatment with Cellfina

Scars appear for many different reasons: they can be the result of infections, surgeries, injuries or tissue inflammation.

IScars can be flat, bulging, sunken or colored, depending on many factors, including the type of skin, the location on the body, the direction of the wound, the type of injury, the age of the person who has the scar and their nutritional status.

How can we treat it?

Our form of treatment is through the use of Mesotherapy.

Mesotherapy treatment

Mesotherapy (intradermotherapy) is the application of medicines (allopathic, homeopathic, master formulas or medical devices) within the dermis. The absorption of certain products is many times greater if it is administered intradermally than if it is administered subcutaneously.

The application is made with special needles, which allow the product to be deposited in the proper depth, since this is where the effectiveness of the treatment lies.

The scars are improved due to the creation of collagen and elastin, thanks to the introduction of vitamins and regenerative substances.

We use this treatment for cases of scars, cellulite, acne, localized adiposities and other conditions.

Over the years, the skin that covers the hands becomes thinner, and part of the adipose tissue under the skin is lost. This causes the hands to lose their youthful appearance, since the bones are marked more, and the veins on the back of the hand show more.

How can we treat it?

Our way of treatment is through the use of Radiesse.

Radiesse treatment

Radiesse is applied to the back of the hand.

A rejuvenating effect is achieved, since both the bones and the veins will be less visible. In addition, in many cases they also improve hand stains.

It is a fast treatment, with excellent results.
