Alterations of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ):

The TMJ is the joint that connects the jaw with the skull, allowing us to perform movements of opening and closing the mouth, chewing, talking, etc.

So that the jaw is in a correct position, it is necessary that there are teeth and grinds both on the top and the bottom, and that these mesh correctly.

When teeth are missing, the position of the jaw is altered, which means that with normal movements the TMJ suffers, producing alterations that range from small noises when opening and closing the mouth to important pains or blockages with the mouth closed or open, which they need to be reduced.

When there is a correct gear between the teeth, there is a good position of the ATM.

Alterations of phonation (pronunciation):

The pronunciation of certain sounds, such as the letter C, is done by supporting the tongue on the teeth, in this case on the previous ones. Therefore, when teeth are missing, some sounds can not be correctly pronounced.

Aesthetic alterations:

Another important function of the teeth is the aesthetics. The appearance of a face, and even that of the person, may vary depending on the position of the teeth, their color or their size.

In addition, the teeth maintain the shape and tone of the muscles of the face, thus preventing the appearance of wrinkles that give an appearance of premature aging to the person.

The correct replacement of the lost pieces prevents the appearance of these wrinkles and maintains a much healthier appearance of the entire facial contour.

DERMOABRASION WITH DIAMOND TIP

For smoother skin:

Dermabrasion is undoubtedly one of the most effective. The result is comparable to that which can be achieved with a laser, with the exception that it can not be used to improve the eye contour, where this technique is dangerous. Dermabrasion is one of the techniques available to correct small wrinkles around the mouth and to improve acne scars.
There are some limitations related to the depile type and the facial areas. For this reason, it is better to consult previously with the injured surgeon to choose the most appropriate treatment.

Process :
It consists of a mechanical abrasion of the skin under local anesthesia and sedation. A diamond tip is used to remove the most superficial layers of the skin until it reaches the dermis, causing minimal and controlled bleeding. After the treatment a fatty tulle is placed and the area is left covered.

Time: 20-40 minutes.

Recovery :
After a few days the skin will heal autonomously and the bet will be detached only with the pills. If the area stings, a common painkiller (paracetamol) is enough to control the discomfort. As soon as he took off he bet, the skin would be smooth and flat as desired. However, you have to protect it with sunscreen and moisturizer for a few weeks. Recovery time is very similar to laser treatment.

FACIAL REJUVENATION WITH RICH PLASMA IN PLAQUETAS (PRP)

The advantages of the use of Platelet Rich Plasma, also known as PRP, in Antiage treatments, is the use of a biological substance manufactured by our body. It is obtained from the patient’s own blood, through a process that includes the centrifugation of a blood sample from which Platelet Rich Plasma is obtained and these release growth factors.

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light). ELIMINATION OF STAINS

Non-aggressive treatment that allows several sessions. Intense Pulsed Light emits a broad band of light. The energy of the light acts on the deeper layers to gradually improve the tone and texture of the skin, gives luminosity.
It acts selectively on the spots, attenuating its appearance until they disappear. At the same time closes pores. It is necessary after the IPL session to protect from the sun and moisturize the skin.

-Patients under treatment with photosensitive drugs.
-Patients with a history of keloids or hypertrophic scars.
-Tanned skin.

CHEMICAL PEELINGS

Peelings are used in aesthetic medicine to flatten wrinkles and expression lines by removing the superficial layer of the skin and, therefore, the most damaged cells of the epidermis. They achieve a softer skin and stimulate the synthesis of collagen and elastic fibers. Some of them can also erase skin spots due to the aging process.
There are different types of Peelings, depending on the chemical agent chosen. The stronger the chemical agent is, the deeper and more visible the effect, although the stronger exfoliating agents may require sedation during treatment. It is also true that in most cases, a gentle peel can be performed in your doctor’s office.

Surface Peels (Glycolic Acid):
The Surface Peelings act on the epidermis and outer layer of the dermis. They can be used to treat acne and oily skin, certain forms of lentigo and fine wrinkles. Sometimes they can cause moderate burning and tingling and the redness is always minimal. Complete recovery is achieved after 7-10 days; The treatments can be repeated within a few weeks.

Moderate Peelings (Trichloroacetic Acid or TCA):
The medium Peelings work in the deepest layers, up to the middle dermis. They produce a more painful redness that lasts several days, and then a peeling. The healing occurs after about fifteen days. We generally use Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA) to treat pigmentation spots on the skin. They are performed under anesthesia (sedation) by a plastic surgeon.

Deep Peelings (Phenol):
Deep Peelings act directly on the deep layer of the dermis. They are performed under anesthesia (sedation) by a plastic surgeon.

Peels for the Lips (Orange Balm):
To soften and moisturize the lips.

Surface peels are made every 10-15 days and then they are performed less frequently. Apart from sun exposure (not recommended for a couple of days after a peel, due to the risk of skin hyperpigmentation), there are no contraindications.

Body treatments
  • Lipofilling / Lipostructure.
  • Body mesotherapy.
  • Cavitation.
  • Pressotherapy.
  • IPL (Photodepilation).
  • Electro-stimulation .
  • Treatment of varicose veins.
  • Hyperhidrosis.
LIPOFILLING / LIPOESTRUCTURE

The Lipoestructura is the evolution of Liposuction reusing the own fat like natural filling (autograft) for esthetic reasons or to correct pathologies (for example scars).

The Lipostructure can help correct large volume defects avoiding the risk of an inflammatory or allergic reaction when using your own fat without any foreign or synthetic material.
The Lipostructure is used for the treatment of grooves and soft tissue volume deficits. It can not disguise superficial fine wrinkles, which are corrected with other techniques (for example Botulinum Toxin). It helps restore the volume of the cheekbones, the harmonious contours of the face and improves wrinkles in the eyebrows; as well as to fill the cheeks, the temporal region and the lacrimal groove, to treat naso-labial folds and supraciliary arches. It can also be used to correct the irregularities of Liposuction, if it is the case, for breast augmentation and to rejuvenate the hands.

Process :

Fat is aspirated (usually under local anesthesia) from the “donor” area (for example, the inside of the knees, abdomen, hips, buttocks, etc.), using a thin cannula. You can use a part of the fat sucked during a Liposuction in the same session. No incision is necessary and there are no visible marks in the donor area. Liposuction is carefully centrifuged and purified, eliminating all unnecessary components before being uniformly injected into a receiving area.
The fat is introduced in layers by means of mini and micro injections according to the latest techniques available in this field.
The procedure lasts between 1-4 hours.

Recovery :

Lipofilling is performed on an outpatient basis and there is no need for the patient to spend the night in the clinic. You can even continue with your work and your social life after treatment. There will be some bruises and mild discomfort during the first days / hours. You should use a girdle in the donor area for a few weeks to promote retraction of the skin.

Results:

The quality of the results and the duration of the effectiveness depend partially on the surgeon who performs the operation and the method used to prepare and inject the fat. However, a part of fat, between 30 and 40%, will be lost during the following months by physiological reabsorption of the same. Injections can be repeated infinitely with cumulative effects to achieve the best possible results. The more constant the body weight is maintained, the better and more lasting the result will be.
When we use this technique for breast augmentation, we must have realistic expectations, that is, a moderate increase. To reach large volumes, breast implants are still the best technique available.

TREATMENT OF VARICES

With the passage of time and physical activity, small capillary veins can appear on the surface of the skin, especially in the lower limbs due to congestion and lack of resistance of the venous system.
In most cases the problem is located only to the surface system, however, it can be an indirect sign of a functional failure of the deep venous system.
For this reason, before any aesthetic treatment, the surgeon asks for a Doppler test to exclude that there are major problems of the main venous circulation and to treat only the aesthetic problem.

Treatment:
If the veins are large enough, the ideal treatment is usually an injection of an alcoholic solution to close the main vessel and all the capillaries that come from it.
Smaller capillaries are usually treated with laser light.

BODY MESOTHERAPY

It produces cellulite reduction, localized volume reduction and firming effect of the skin, through micro injections in subcutaneous or intradermal way.
The treatment is painless. Does not require anesthesia.
The results begin to be noticed from the 3-4 session.
During the treatment it is advisable to avoid drinking alcohol and drink a large amount of water.

Side effects:
-After the treatment may appear some small bruise that will disappear after a few days.
-inflammation.

You can combine with other treatments such as cavitation and pressotherapy.
The substances administered to improve cellulite, have as their objective:
-The reduction of adipose tissue.
-Activate the circulatory system.
-Reconstruct the connective tissue.

Before undergoing Body Mesotherapy, we recommend:

-Avoid depilators before the session as it can cause irritation or redness in the area and that predisposes to feel more pain.
-Do not sunbathe 48 hours after the session.

Contraindications:
-Pregnancy and breastfeeding.
-Patients with Cancer.
-Supportive.
-Alterations of coagulation.
-People with active skin infections.

CAVITATION

Non-invasive treatment Not painful
It is a technique that by means of ultrasounds of different frequencies acts on localized fat deposits releasing them from fat. It breaks the cell membrane of the adipocytes, the fat is released from the inside of the cell and later it is eliminated through the lymphatic and urinary systems.

Side effects:
– Redness may appear but does not cause pain.
-The heat generated is perfectly tolerated.

Cavitation combined with other techniques such as pressure therapy acts on body remodeling leading to a significant loss of perimeter, acting not only on localized adiposity but also on cellulite and flaccidity.
The sessions last 25-35 minutes. Between one session and another should be left 3 days. It is important to maintain continuity. Minimum 5-8 sessions to see results. 10-12 are recommended.
It is necessary to eat at least 2 liters of water daily to help eliminate fat from the body.

The patient puts on a pneumatic suit that exerts pressure on the area to be treated. It shows a massage with a pleasant and relaxing pressure. The massage is performed centripetally, that is, from distal to proximal.
It causes an improvement in the pathologies that occur with fluid retention, lymphedemas and venous disorders of the lower limbs. It helps to treat cellulite.
Pregnant women can use it from the fourth month of gestation to avoid or prevent the fluid retention of pregnancy.

Contraindications:
-Hympatic and Kidney Disease.
-Thrombosis.
-Thrombophlebitis.

IPL (Photodepilation).

The light reaches the hair follicle and weakens it until it stops producing hair. It is effective, safe and simple. The number of sessions will depend on skin phototype, hair characteristics, area to be treated, sex, age, and hormonal status. The results are visible from the first session . The duration of the session will depend on the area to be treated.

ELECTROSTIMULATION

Technique widely used in aesthetic medicine. By means of electrical impulses, they provoke muscular contractions and as a result, an effect similar to that which would be obtained by exercising the muscles.

Contraindications:
-People with pacemakers.
-Epilepsy.
-About the abdomens of pregnant women.

HYPERHIDROSIS

Hoperhidrosis is a disease (pathology, disorder) associated with excessive sweating that affects a large number of people.
It is usually checked in the armpits, the palms of the hands and soles of the feet, however, it can affect any area of ​​the body.
Normal sweating is a physiological process that regulates body temperature; if there is excess, the odor that drifts and the physical contact (for example shaking hands) can interfere with social life.
Botulinum toxin can reduce sweat production locally in a simple way.
A minimal amount is injected into the armpit and / or the palms of the hands to control the production of sweat by the glands located on the skin. The use of anesthetic cream helps to reduce the discomfort of the needle.
The effect begins one week after the injection and lasts 6-8 months. For this reason, we advise treating the desired area at the beginning of spring so as not to have problems during the six hottest months of the year.
