Laser Hair Removal
 
 
 

Laser Hair Removal

 
The laser hair removal is a treatment that is done by the use of a specific light beam with an exact wavelength. Melanin is the pigment responsible for the hair colour, and it will absorb that laser light, generating localized heating that consequently destroys the hair. The darker the hair, the greater the absorption of energy is and the more effective is its destruction. The greater the contrast between the colour of the hair and the skin (dark hair, fair skin), the more effective the hair removal is. When the contrast is lower, there is a need to reduce the power of the laser and thus, the effectiveness decreases, increasing the number of sessions and the time to obtain the desired results.
 
 
 
 
 
Lymphatic Drainage
 
 
 

Lymphatic Drainage

 
The lymphatic system is responsible for eliminating the excess fluid and some toxic substances from the body's tissues and organs. Consisting of a network of vessels and lymphatic capillaries, this system drains this excess liquid, in the form of lymph, into the bloodstream. Any dysfunction to the lymphatic system leads to fluid retention in the tissues which, when filling up the spaces between the cells, will cause a swelling called oedema. A physiological drainage blockage of the lymph by the lymphatic system can result from a surgical intervention, venous insufficiency, pregnancy, menstrual cycle, presence of scars, burns, obesity, among others reasons.Manual lymphatic drainage is the technique that helps the lymphatic system to eliminate the accumulated fluids and toxins. By increasing the flow and speed of lymphatic circulation, drainage decreases fluid retention, activates blood circulation, reducing symptoms and thus generating a feeling of well-being, leading to body and mental relaxation. It must be performed by qualified and experienced professionals and involves painless, smooth, and superficial movements that obey the path of the superficial lymphatic system.
 
 
 
 
 
Facial Harmonization
 
 
 

Facial Harmonization

 
Hyaluronic acid is a natural constituent of the skin and a fundamental element in its balance, contributing to its hydration and turgidity. With age and time, the presence of hyaluronic acid gradually decreases. It is considered the ideal filler, as it is completely compatible and without risk of rejection. Facial harmonization with hyaluronic acid seeks to rebalance facial proportions, without exaggeration, respecting the individual traits of each patient. When replacing the lost volume (jaw line, cheekbones, temples) and simultaneously, when improving the quality of the skin, facial harmonization is the key to preventing aging. For a lasting and natural result, the harmonization process must be gradual and delicate.
 
 
 
 
 
Microneedling or Percutaneous Collagen Induction
 
 
 

Microneedling or Percutaneous Collagen Induction

 
It is a minimally invasive procedure that consists of the stimulation of the skin through microneedles that create micro-channels in repeated movements. These micro-channels result in a controlled aggression of the skin (we only see a local redness located in the treated area) that on the one hand, promotes the formation of collagen and elastin (response to this aggression) and on the other, these microscopic channels, allow the penetration of active substances where they are most needed, on the skin. It is a simple procedure, which has a cumulative effect, requiring repetition every 2 or 3 weeks. It is indicated for acne scars, hyperpigmentation such as melasma, enlarged pores, stretch marks, sagging and capillary stimulation. It can be associated in conjunction with peelings.
 
 
 
 
 
Chemical Peeling
 
 
 

Chemical Peeling

 
This treatment consists in the application, on the skin, of one or more acids that promote, in a controlled way, the renewal of certain layers of the epidermis and / or dermis, causing its flaking or not, depending on the type of product used, the quantity and the zone where it was applied. In other words, even if the skin “flakes” do not fall off, it is important to know that the “peeling” had its effectiveness. During the application you can feel a burning sensation that ends spontaneously or with the neutralization of the “peeling”. It can be complemented with microneedling whenever indicated.
 
 
 
 
 
Rhino-modulation
 
 
 

Rhino-modulation

 
Rhino-modulation consists in the alteration of the shape and proportions of the nose by applying hyaluronic acid. It is not the same as a surgical intervention, as it is performed only using local anaesthesia and strategic application of hyaluronic acid in certain regions of the nose. The functional component of the nose is not addressed, only the external component of the nose undergoes changes. The results are different from the post-surgical results, since the changes are subtle and not permanent (the hyaluronic acid is reabsorbed over time). This is an appropriate procedure to correct small nasal imperfections, slight changes in the projection of the dorsum, the nasal tip or the shape of the tip itself.
 
 
 
 
 
Facial Sagging Treatment/ Collagen Inducers
 
 
 

Facial Sagging Treatment/ Collagen Inducers

 
The gradual loss of collagen that begins between the ages of 20 and 30 is one of the main causes of facial sagging. Collagen inducers are biocompatible and non-permanent substances that, once applied to the face, will stimulate the skin's fibroblasts to produce collagen. What happens, after the application of a collagen inducer in the deep dermis or subcutaneous cellular tissue, is a subclinical inflammatory response, i.e., it is not noticeable, it does not cause symptoms, but it is the necessary stimulus for the organism to react, responding with an increased collagen production. There is no change in the proportions of the face, but the skin becomes firmer, thicker and with a healthier appearance. The application is divided into 3 to 4 sessions, with intervals of 1 to 2 months, and the results begin to be noticeable at the end of the first month of treatment, when the body's response to the presence of the collagen inducer begins to be noticeable.
 
 
 
 
 
Radiofrequency
 
 
 

Radiofrequency

 
The increase in temperature in the dermis (one of the layers of the skin), causes collagen contraction, which potentiates its regeneration. This treatment is very simple and is carried out, usually in various sessions, depending on the quality of the skin and the age of the patient. It is, therefore, a preventive and therapeutic treatment recommended for the improvement of skin flaccidity, and can be done on the face and neck, according to the patient's tolerance and in the absence of contraindications for it.
