In aesthetic medicine fillers are materials that are injected into the dermis or subcutaneous tissue in order to fill a depression or increase the volume. May be transient, when their cosmetic effect - clinical ceases after some time, and permanent, they remain where injected, for a lifetime. Among the most used are hyaluronic acid , which is a sugar found in all animal species, and which does not require any testing before inoculation and collagen, both considered filler transient. Among the most used is the permanent poly- alkyl- filler immide. There are also called " semi-permanent " because a slow resorption ( calcium hydroxyapatite ). Literally, "filler " means " filling ": in fact, these substances are injected into the dermis to fill (just fill) and smooth facial wrinkles and other signs of aging.
Therefore aimed at rejuvenating the skin, filler injections are innovative and effective alternatives - or a valid support - to plastic surgery.
The stings of fillers are indicated in the following circumstances:
Fill and smooth wrinkles around the eyes (known as crow's feet) and mouth
Increase / remodel the volume of thin lips
Please correct the nasolabial furrows
Mold shape and volume of the cheekbones, chin and forehead
Fill depressions and folds associated with aging
Remove scars left by acne or surgery
Types of fillers
The fillers are not all alike: the boom in demand in the last decade has led scholars to seek fillers ever more innovative, effective and safe. The hyaluronic acid fillers is certainly the most well-liked to fight wrinkles and moisturize the skin in depth , while ensuring a "soft - lifting" all natural. Even the fillers Collagen fillers are quite desirable and required in the field of cosmetic medicine , in particular, collagen injections are indicated in the increase in the lips and in the treatment of surgical scars left by acne or. There is, then, another category of filler (the so called permanent fillers ), able volumizing cheekbones, chin and lips by the insertion under the skin of real prosthesis not absorbable. Finally, certain dermal fillers are used as a support to other procedures , such as botulinum injections or plastic surgery.
Before proceeding with the filler injections, you have ascertained the state of health of the patient. Although serious side effects derived from hyaluronic acid injections are infrequent, it is strongly advised not to administer the fillers during pregnancy and lactation. In addition, the hyaluronic acid fillers is contraindicated in the presence of skin diseases, herpes infection in progress, autoimmune diseases of the skin and collagen.
Medical Cavitation is a non-surgical, non-invasive approach to reduce the thickness of localized fat through the ' use of low-frequency ultrasound. It is a viable non-invasive alternative to liposuction that is in effect a surgery, which sometimes can not be recommended or not desired by the patient.
Cavitation is a phenomenon that occurs in liquids when these are subjected to turbulence and consists in the creation of " bubbles " of gas (or vapor ) of the liquid within the liquid itself. This effect can also be obtained by ultrasound ( u / s) at high intensity. In fact, the u / s through liquid - solid , as happens in the case of the human body, they tend to make molecules away from each other , and if the intensity is sufficient, this causes the formation of cavities in the interstitial fluid and therefore the creation of micro - bubbles. Imploding - that is suddenly canceling - they give rise to very high temperatures, pressures and heat exchanges in fractions of microseconds (one millionth of a second) . The ultrasound in the medical field are used , among other things, to remove kidney stones (exploiting the effect of cavitation ), ultrasound ( low intensity, without cavitation ), and in physiotherapy. The technology u / s at low frequency ( 60 kHz ) of CAVISON DOC allows to deliver a predetermined amount of energy and targeted to adiposity , without which the process interests other tissues : in this way the ultrasonic waves converge in a focused area and are concentrated in a particular point with the effect of causing an immediate break dell'adipocita that free fatty acids, as a result mainly disposed of through the lymphatic and urinary systems.
Thanks to medical cavitation is now possible to non-surgical body contouring , based on an ultrasound system designed to do " implode " , and then eliminate , the fat cells. Like liposuction, cavitation can give medical final results , provided that they meet the medical indications , and that the patient observes proper nutrition coupled to an active lifestyle.
The directions in aesthetics?
Ultrasound is particularly indicated in the treatment of all external cellulite in particular:
in the remodeling of localized fat
in the treatment of skin orange peel and rough skin
in improving the plasticity of the tissues
in improving the tissues making them more compact and smooth
reactivate the local circulation and nourishment of the skin
Cavitation and liposuction are similar treatments ? Both methods are designed to eliminate localized fat and cellulite other, but one acts in a NON- invasive and without expiration of post-operative , the other requires recovery time, leaving little scars , and is comparable , however, to a minor surgical procedure.
Cavitation aesthetics painful? No. The aesthetic cavitation is a painless technique which, rarely, can cause slight redness absolutely definitely tolerable and disappear in a short time. It is a non-invasive technology that allows you to regularly perform their own social activities both before and after treatment.
As the fat is expelled from the body ? Cavitation causes a thinning of the fat that is easily eliminated through urine , sweat , the lymphatic system and the natural metabolic process.
Cavitation can damage internal organs ? No. If cavitation is properly used does not damage internal tissues. The frequencies of cavitation are adjusted so that they act only on the consistency of the fat . It ' must follow the protocol used when treating areas such as the abdomen.
What are the recommendations before and after treatment ? The first fundamental rule to follow before and after a session of cavitation is to drink at least 1 liter of water to favor the fluidisation of the fat and not unreasonable fatigue lavoreo of the kidneys in the ejection process.
How much time must elapse between one session and the other? It is always advisable to carry out a cavitation in the week and in any case should not ever run less than 4 days after the last treatment because this is the time it takes for the body to excrete fat and purify. Seats too ravviicinate may result in discomfort and kidney failure that body. Whereas after a cavitation is the mobilization of a large mass of triglycerides, it is clear that for the elimination of the latter must involve the liver, the lymphatic system, kidney etc ... then must wait until the organism disposes all recovering without difficulty.
How many sessions are needed to get good results ? On average, for significant and lasting results we recommend 8-12 sessions each lasting up to 30 minutes. ( If the treatment is supported by Carboxy therapy, the sessions required for a good result is reduced to 4 /5).
And ' possible to enhance the action of cavitation during treatment ? Yes , you can apply locally a gel based on phosphatidylcholine and carnitine, conveyed through the use of the handpiece.
What does it feel like undergoing treatment ? The customer who undergoes a cavitation will hear a sound due to the formation of standing waves. The person performing the treatment, however, inconfoindibile hear a ticking sound like a speeded up. During the Seuta not be felt any discomfort. Rarely can appear a bit ' of redness definitely tolerable.
What are the contraindications to treatment? The treatment, it is not invasive, has no particular contraindications, but we do not recommend it in the presence of : -pregnancy and lactation, - metabolic problems (hypercholesterolemia, diabetes ... ) - liver disease or kidney or heart - problems related to blood clotting, - fibroids - tumors. E ' therefore necessary to seek medical advice before starting the treatment cycle.
What are the parts of the body where treatment is indicated ? The treatment can be performed wherever there are localized fat deposits without a real limitation of areas , although there are parts of the body such as the abdomen , thighs , buttocks that give results more apparent. In this sense it is important to note that cavitation is a method to reshape the body and not to lose weight, so it is more suitable for severe forms of localized fat panniculopathies and difficult to resolve with diet alone and with exercise.
You can associate other types of treatment ? Often the treatments made at the same time take advantage of the SYNERGY ! Combining Carboxitherapy , Mesotherapy , Herbal Medicine, Lymphatic Drainage, Integration Food , Sports activities TARGETED , Power give a specific result MUCH HIGHER AND LASTING IN TIME.
In aesthetic medicine carboxy therapy is indicated for toning the body and fight cellulite, but also as anti-aging treatment on face, neck and décolleté. Medical uses carbon dioxide gas ( CO2) that has vasodilator effect and activation of the capillary. It can improve blood flow and metabolism of the skin, increasing tissue oxygenation. Has a slimming and anti-cellulite especially when the cellulite is of considerable water retention with edema without obvious impairment of the capillaries.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do carboxytherapy ? The carboxy therapy involves injecting a thin needle through the skin just below the gas (CO2) to cover all the areas concerned. The needle that is used is very thin ( 30G -32G ).
How does it work ? The carbon dioxide in the gaseous state is injected subcutaneously with a thin syringe through an apparatus that regulates the pressure and the frequency of emission, ensuring maximum safety. The recommended initial course involves 15-20 sessions twice a week.
What are the risks of Carbon Dioxide? The treatment is safe and there is no risk of embolism, whereas the non-toxicity of the gas ( normally produced by the body and eliminated for the most part with the lungs ). A necessary condition is that you use and carbon dioxide cylinders in medical and that treatment should be performed by experienced physicians.
For what conditions is shown carboxytherapy ? Carbon Dioxide is particularly suitable in the case of: psoriasis, cellulite, skin laxity, ulcers, vascular ( arterial and venous ), fluid retention, facial rejuvenation, vascular diseases of the genitals.
The Rradiofrequenza bipolar is an excellent treatment with non-surgical procedure that aims to solve folds and wrinkles, firming the tissues deeply. The controlled, localized heat stimulates the fibroblast activity according to the natural process of self-repair of the dermis, also in the long run also stimulates the synthesis of new collagen, just at the points where the age has slowed down or brought to an end cell renewal.
Frequently Asked Questions
The radiofrequency is safe ? Yes, the radio has been developed over several years of experience, by improving the method of treatment and the application of radio frequency energy.
The radio frequency is painful ? The radiofrequency treatment is performed without any anesthesia. When the electrode dome that emits radiofrequency comes in contact with the skin , the patient feels a heat which can be mild to intense , depending on the area being treated.
What kind of results can I expect? You can firm the skin of the face and neck with a light effect non-surgical facelift . This treatment is often used in cases of failure of the cheeks. You can also get this type of toning the abdomen and legs. The majority of patients immediately detects the results , even if the hardening can develop gradually over a period of 2 - 4 weeks due to the formation of new collagen . It may be necessary to make more than one application , depending on the area to be treated.
How long do the results obtained with the radio ? The results of treatment persist for 6-12 months. The skin will continue to age as in the past , but you can delay this effect with the following anti-aging treatments.
The benefits of treatment with radiofrequency are progressive and appreciable especially after a certain period , which means when the production of activated fibroblasts in the session becomes visible. The contraction of the collagen fibers provides an immediate tightening effect, but during the six months following the treatments , you will see as the main outcomes of this technique : the tissues are more toned and your skin thickness and texture , so even the deepest folds are visibly and effectively reduced.
The high intensity pulsed light (from Intense Pulsed Light - IPL) is an electronic device commonly used for practice of depilation and photo rejuvenation treatments . This type of technology has begun its development from the late 90s and the evolution of the laser, by the time taken for this purpose. The advantage of this type of technology with respect to the laser is that it allows to treat larger areas , with greater safety, versatility and speed of execution . The specific technical characteristics change depending on the manufacturer and model , but basically , the pulsed light is made up of an energy accumulator and a special xenon lamp , and a special optics, capable of generating a very intense beam of light that illuminates the area to be treated . The distribution of light is not continuous but occurs through a very short pulses. A specific optical filter , possibly interchangeable , prevents any possible damage to the skin from UV rays.
The pulsed light is a system used particularly in dermatology and aesthetic medicine, which allows you to deal in an effective and minimally invasive a wide range of issues:
Progressively permanent hair removal
Non-ablative skin rejuvenation
Skin problems : skin spots , hyperpigmentation , pigmented lesions , sun spots , rosacea, telangiectasias.
Use for photo-epilation, the photons of light from the pulsed light to reach the deeper layers of the hair follicle , are selectively absorbed by melanin. Through the process of selective photothermolysis ( absorption by melanin in the hair ) determines the thermal destruction of the hair follicle without damage to the surrounding tissues.
The most modern technology also uses this method in the treatment of acne, to great effect by blocking the process of altered keratinization borne by the sebaceous gland responsible for this pathology.
Use for photorejuvenation , packets of light pulsed light that meets the skin are able to non-invasively stimulate the fibroblasts , inducing the production of new collagen fibers, which improve the tone of the vessel walls , also determining the filling of wrinkles.
In the treatment of pigmentation problems , the widespread thermal stimulus pulsed light results in the destruction of the melanin of the deep layers of the epidermis , favoring a relaxation of hyperchromia .
The advantage of the pulsed light technology as well as the vastness of the fields of application, it is certainly linked the small amount of side effects, which almost always boil down to a redness that tends to disappear within a few hours .
Faced with a growing demand for medical-aesthetic treatments designed to achieve the resolution of multiple skin imperfections with less impairment of social life, pulsed light , due to its extreme maneuverability and speed of execution , find great possibilities of use and versatility , allowing you to perform targeted and effective treatments , in complete safety , presenting itself as a viable procedure is isolated is associated with other methods.
During the session of the IPL particular patient does not feel painful stimuli. The interval between the sessions and the number of applications varies according to the individual case and the type of problem.
The duration of treatment depends on the extent of the affected area and the type of surgery , but in general it can be said that the single session lasts around 30-60 minutes. In the weeks prior to treatment you should avoid exposure to sunlight and / or UVA lamps and do not take drugs that increase the skin's sensitivity to light. Sunscreens are essential before exposing the treated area to sunlight to prevent hyperpigmentation.
This technique is undoubtedly very effective in solving various problems and is not dangerous , but , given the complexity of the equipment IPL , it is essential to rely on competent operators.
Frequently Asked Questions
How many sessions are needed ? The ideal to achieve good results is performed by the eight sessions.
How long should I wait between sessions ? Usually 30 to 40 days and depends on the characteristics of the subject and the area to be treated.
Because multiple sessions are required? The high intensity pulsed light acts only on the hair follicles active , that is in the growth phase ( anagen ). This is why it is not possible to obtain complete epilation in a single session because of the need to adapt to the life cycle of the hair, and only a part of the hairs , variable from zone to zone, is in the anagen phase.
What are the side effects of pulsed light ? Some people after the session may have some temporary itching , or redness of the skin may show some minor rash that disappears spontaneously. It is important to follow your doctor's instructions .
The pulsed light has risks ? No , if done by staff. The FDA has approved the use of high-intensity pulsed light as a safe and effective procedure .
Who performs the treatments? Only qualified medical personnel.
Carried out a preliminary chek up ? Always . In the first visit is carried out by a full medical chek up on skin type , color and thickness of the hair and the skin condition in the area you want treated.
What precautions are necessary before the treatment? No exposure to the sun or UV lamps for at least three weeks before starting treatment . The skin should not be tanned . In this time you can not do waxing, use tweezers or other hair removal treatments with the exception of the razor.
In such cases you can not make the light piulsata ? If you are pregnant , breastfeeding, use of medications photo sensitizers and age less than 18 years.
What is the difference between laser and IPL? Both are effective for permanent hair removal , but the pulsed light is suitable for skin types with dark skin and blond hair , and the ability to treat larger areas.

The therapeutic indications of phototherapy are many:
Acne: After a cycle of phototherapy for cases of mild or moderate acne , or photodynamic therapy for the most severe cases , there is a significant decrease in the size of the sebaceous glands and, consequently , the production of sebum with the clinical effect of a skin less oily, less shiny, with dilated pores less . It also highlights a slowdown of bacterial proliferation , in particular of Propionibacterium acnes, the bacterium responsible for most of acne vulgaris , with a significant improvement of acne lesions.
Photoaging : PDT by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin , essential substances for a more toned and firm the skin , it is useful to contrast the skin photoaging , particularly for the treatment of fine wrinkles and thin in the cheek , in the area periocular and periorbital. The skin of the face looks more relaxed and supple.
Actinic Keratosis: Photodynamic therapy (phototherapy ) is one of the therapies of first choice for the treatment of actinic keratoses , dry patches of thickened skin that affect the areas exposed to solar radiation (face, scalp , limbs). Thanks to the accumulation of the photosensitizer at the level of the lesion with subsequent transient production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) are destroyed exclusively target cells. After the treatment with photodynamic therapy affected by keratosis cells are replaced by healthy cells and the skin is smoother and younger.
Peeling doctor : treatment of skin exfoliation obtained by the application of chemicals on the skin. The doctor makes peeling exfoliation that can be superficial , medium or deep depending on the diagnosis of the problem and to treat. With the application on the skin of a chemical solution with a high concentration of exfoliating substance are removed quickly and controlled the surface layers of the skin surface is stimulated and the building and the restructuring of the deeper layers.
Substances are used such as glycolic acid , trichloroacetic acid or salicylic acid etc. choices and dosed according to the disease to be treated. The main signs of peeling are: photo-aging , skin spots (face and hands ) , acne, seborrheic skin with large pores and small acne scars, wrinkles.
Chemical peels for anti-aging effect
Chemical peels for the treatment of skin blemishes

Needling (natural collagen induction ) - purpose
The needling (natural collagen induction ) (or dermaroller or natural collagen induction therapy) is a treatment of bio- mechanical remodeling for facial rejuvenation for acne scars and stretch marks, aging and photoaging.
It's called " needling (natural collagen induction ) " ( in English means needle needle) the new technique of aesthetic medicine that promises great results to the ladies no longer young, forcing the cells that produce collagen in the face to work at a pace as a teenager . The needling (natural collagen induction ) is a method of rejuvenating the epidermis halfway between medical treatment and surgical technique superficial. The result is a smoother skin , thick and elastic at an affordable price and in just 30 minutes of treatment. The needling (natural collagen induction ) is a medical aesthetic treatment of bio- mechanical remodeling carried out with the dermaroller , a method that allows to speed up the autonomous production of new collagen and elastin in the dermis. The treatment is recommended as anti-aging treatment , or to improve scarring ( acne , for example) or stretch marks. With this innovative technology , you push the cells ' impigrite ' age to produce substances that give elasticity and firmness to the skin as normally happens when you have 20 and 30 years , rejuvenating the skin from within.
When you need:
improve acne scars
correct stretch marks
correcting alterations from chrono- aging ( natural aging ) , speaking in logic anti-aging , sagging skin on and not toned , skin laxity , wrinkling , both on the face, neck and décolleté
improve the damage of photo-aging (aging caused by sun exposure ).
Suitable for both sexes. The treatment is ideal for those who want to have a long-lasting result , in fact, after the initial cycle are sufficient 1 session every year , year and a half for maintenance.
How long does the treatment
Each session lasts 15 to 20 minutes, depending on the surface to be treated.
Serves also consider a preparation time of about 1 hour.
They are normally laid down by 3 sessions , for example, facial rejuvenation , 5 sessions for acne scars . Between meetings, the next has to spend a period of time equal to 1-2 months . The production of new collagen and elastin is maximum at a distance of 6-8 months after treatment. The phase of tissue remodeling continues , however, for further 4-6 months. The ameliorative effects are observed , however, already after 2-3 months.
The treatment takes place as follows:
Application of an anesthetic cream about 1 hour before the session.
After cleansing the face is applied to the active ingredient that you want to penetrate the site of injection to treat. The treatment protocol is a highly personalized : the coordinated action of solutions exfoliating , anti-inflammatory , moisturizing and photo protectors allows you to get a synergistic effect that helps to balance the functions of the skin prior to surgery you begin rolling or needling dermaroller with a cylinder with micro-needles of microscopic gold plated, for 5-10 minutes in all directions : vertical, horizontal, diagonal at the end of the Rolling applies a mask with l-ascorbic acid 20%, which is left in place for about 20-30 minutes.
After the treatment the skin remains reddened and has a mild edema especially for the first 6-12 hours. Then you can apply a camouflage.
The day after the treatment you can return to all normal social relationships.
