For a long time, it was believed that preserving the youthfulness of a skin was preserving its beauty assets, for aesthetic purposes only. In reality, the skin is an organ in its own right, with essential protective or regulatory functions. This is why aesthetic medicine is increasingly being presented as preventive anti-aging and curative medicine. Preserving beautiful skin means first and foremost wanting to keep the skin functional.
Correcting skin imperfections related to life
Like any living organ, the skin must constantly adapt to the circumstances of life. However, there may be small dysfunctions, leading to slight after-effects that your cosmetic doctor can correct. As these lesions are random, prevention is at this stage more complex.
Treat stretch marks or scars by reshaping the tissues
A stretch mark or a scar both form according to the same process, a failed healing with an excess of thick collagen fibers, without sufficient elastic fibers. This fibrous scar tissue alters the dynamics of the surrounding skin, causing it to age prematurely.
However, it is possible to repair incorrect healing by reshaping the dermis in order to provide a young and elastic tissue.
This dermal rejuvenation involves the activation of stem cells into young fibroblasts, with the help of supplied or generated growth factors:
- Medium peel with trichloroacetic acid or PRX T 33 peel.
- PRP injection, platelet growth factors for therapeutic purposes only.
- CO² resurfacing laser (Smartxide Touch ®) or non-ablative fractional laser (Cynosure Icon ®, Fraxel ®).
- Fractional radiofrequency triggering a thermage of the dermis (heat remodeling) (Venus Viva ®, Legato III ®).
Treat acne while preventing atrophic scars. Acne is common among teenagers (over 80%) and women (over 40%), especially during menopause. Acne in chronic phase poses a problem identical to stretch marks, with very ugly atrophic scarring lesions or pigmented scars, resulting in skin that partially loses its vitality. Acne in its inflammatory phase increases the risk of suppuration (folliculitis) and bacterial proliferation.
Preserving your beauty assets therefore means taking medical care of acne, to keep your skin healthy and without sequelae. Aesthetic medicine provides various anti-acne solutions:
- Cold light therapy of medical LEDs
- Anti-acne mesotherapy
- GRP growth factor injections
- Gentle superficial peels or TCA medium peels.
Correcting color, pigment or vascular anomalies.
Pigmentary (melasma, HPI inflammatory hyperpigmentation) or vascular (couperose, angioma, erythrosis...) disorders can occasionally alter skin metabolism.
Treating these lesions allows to keep a beautiful skin with an optimal metabolism (vascular laser or Thermovein ®, pigmentary laser for photorejuvenation ...).
Prevention of the effects of aging
Increased knowledge of the molecular and cellular mechanisms of skin aging has led to new solutions in anti-aging cosmetics (Universkin) or in preventive anti-aging medicine.
Deeply moisturizing the skin
Synonymous with life, water is intimately related to the hyaluronic acid of the dermis. Moisturizing your skin does not mean nourishing the epidermis, it means deeply hydrating the dermis.
One of the means of moisturizing is to ensure a regular supply of hyaluronic acid, for example by anti-ageing mesotherapy (fluid HA).
Aesthetic medicine is increasingly focusing on our natural ability to regenerate tissue, through research on stem cells or growth factors.
This dermal remodeling is thus used in energy waves, radiofrequency waves, magnetic fields, tissue inducer injections, PRP injections... Painless and non-invasive solutions will thus stimulate dermal cell lines, such as the photo-modulation of medical cold LEDs, IPL or flash lamps, milta-therapy...
Train your skin to regenerate itself like an athlete who trains his muscles.
Protecting the epidermal skin barrier
UV rays have harmful effects on your skin, hence the need to select the right sun protection, especially in a very bright area. Your epidermis must also remain healthy and free of impurities, hence the value of a superficial peel to purify your skin and ensure that it best fulfills its exchange functions (thermoregulation, elimination of waste ...).
Preventing the vicious circle of aging
Small age-related skin abnormalities must be treated quickly, or else a whole harmful dynamic may develop.
A "valley of tears" groove, for example, or a naso-labial fold accelerates the ptosis of the upper tissues by increasing the effect of gravity, increasing the risk of eyebrow ptosis and aging of the eyes.
Indirectly, rejuvenating a smile by filling in the nasolabial fold also slows down the aging of the eyes!
This global care by your anti-aging specialist helps you to preserve your beauty assets without surgery, for example with anti-wrinkle injections and facial volume management.
