There are different filling materials for wrinkles and grooves that can be their own or synthetic and transitory, semi-permanent and permanent, depending on how long they are in the body. Among the most used we must name: natural and synthetic hyaluronic acid, polylactic acid, Acrylic microspheres It is of our preference among the materials of more limited duration, the use of hyaluronic acid (Restylane) and Matrigel. It has different degrees of firmness allowing its use in crow’s feet, frown and worry lines, acne scars, small wrinkles around lips and other facial wrinkles. Profiling and lip augmentation. It is a material that exists naturally between cells. It is considered semi-permanent because it lasts up to one year.

It can be used to treat people, with wrinkles or folds in the face, who want a lasting treatment, since it has a minimum stay of 3 years at the injection site, although this duration may vary depending on the patients.
Botulinum toxin (Botox ® or Dysport)
Botox ® injections can make the crow’s feet, frown lines and forehead disappear from the face. They are microinjections of Botulinum Toxin (Botox ® or Dysport) that are applied inside the muscle that causes the wrinkle. At first, it was used only for the upper third of the face: forehead, eyebrows and crow’s feet. Now we use it on the neck, for vertical cords or platysmal bands, and for horizontal wrinkles of the neck. It’s a very short procedure, it only takes a few minutes. The duration of the effect is 3 to 6 months depending on the patient and the area to be applied. It is a painless procedure, but in the case of hypersensitive patients an anesthetic cream can be used an hour earlier if necessary. The effects begin to be observed 3 to 5 days later and stabilize after 15 days. Small bruises may appear where the injection was given and slight pain. After the procedure, you may feel a headache. Bruising may be more noticeable in patients who have been taking aspirin, which is why it is advisable to stop taking Aspirin before the injection. After the application, you should follow a series of instructions that we will give, including: do not massage the area that has been injected, stay upright, and finally: use the muscle injected intentionally, causing the muscle to contract, this It helps the penetration of the product.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet Rich Plasma is the product obtained by centrifuging the patient’s blood and is the latest aesthetic trend. Through it biostimulation occurs from the inside of the skin as the Growth Factors accelerate endothelial and epithelial regeneration; strengthen blood capillaries and improve vascular inflow; organize the structure of the collagen and elastin fibers, determining the improvement and quality of the skin, restoring in this way the cutaneous vitality; they recover the elastic consistency of the same and therefore they improve the tone and the smoothness of the skin increasing its brightness and luminosity.
Biostimulation with Platelet Rich Plasma is done through its intradermal application through mesotherapy, this being a minimally invasive treatment which determines that it can be performed in the office and on an outpatient basis.
It can be used both in preventive and restorative treatments and the number of sessions to be performed is evaluated according to the needs of each patient, in a personalized way.
The improvement is appreciable from the first days but it is maximum at 20 or 30 days after its application and unlike other treatments, it is maintained for many months. The biostimulation continues during the 6 months after the application.
It has effects of skin rejuvenation and shape or volume for flaccidity, wrinkles, furrows, spots on the cheeks, lips and chin.
Radiofrequency is one of the most advanced facial rejuvenation processes that through the transfer of energy in the form of heat to the deepest layers of the dermis, achieves the stimulation of collagen production, eliminating the signs of skin aging and giving it a youthful and fresh appearance.
The increase in temperature in the dermis results in shortening of existing collagen fibers. The fibroblasts, in turn, stimulated by this energy, generate new collagen remodeling the tissues. This caloric energy also has a detoxifying effect and increases the nutrition and oxygenation of the tissues by producing dilation of the vessels that irrigate the skin.
It is known as a facelift without surgery, it does not require anesthesia and it is not invasive. It can be applied to any part of the body, especially the face, neck, abdomen, thighs and buttocks and is compatible with all types of skin. The patient can continue with his normal life after the application since it does not produce pain, scabs or inflammation and it is not contraindicated to take sun with the adequate protection. The treatment lasts approximately between 60 and 90 minutes. At the end of the treatment there is a slight redness or erythema that lasts a short time.
Radiofrequency can be combined with other techniques such as intense pulsed light, which improves the texture of the skin and small spots and veins of the face, with chemical peels, fillers, botulinum toxin, etc. They must be performed at different times and with a programmed sequence to achieve a harmonious and lasting rejuvenation, recovering the oval and facial contour in a natural way.
The fractionated CO2 laser is the most advanced technology for the rejuvenation of the skin and the improvement of skin lesions.
Skin that has been significantly affected by scars, stretch marks and evidence of signs of premature aging such as the presence of wrinkles, changes in coloration and laxity can be significantly improved with the application of Co2 Laser.
With it, we can vaporize tissues with great precision, this activates the fibroblasts and thus favors the production of collagen for a more efficient healing, achieving the replacement of damaged skin with fresh, radiant and healthy skin.
After healing, the immediate result is a smoother skin, it will look brighter and more homogeneous, with a uniform tone.
After 3 to 6 months after treatment, as the deeper layers of the skin continue to heal, the lines of expression and the depth of acne scars and stretch marks are diminished. Therefore, the treatment of fractionated CO2 laser is a safe and effective rejuvenation procedure, which treats wrinkles, restores firmness to sagging skin and takes years off your appearance, without the risks and complications involved in facial surgery.
Intense pulsed light (IPL)
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a high intensity light source that covers a more or less narrow range of colors that produce a different effect on the skin. In this way, light sweeps away all irregularities, undesirable structures or dark lesions of the skin.
The rejuvenation is an antiaging treatment that acts as an intelligent scalpel, decreasing the pore size and the depth of wrinkles to rejuvenate the face. It generates new collagen and results in an improvement of the skin texture.
The results are evident from the first session. Between 3 and 5 sessions with an interval of at least three weeks are needed. The improvements are perceived progressively. First, the spots and redness disappear and the skin recovers a much more uniform tone. As the treatment progresses, a general improvement in the quality of the skin is noticed.
