The intense sunshine in the summer months, in conjunction with the bathrooms in the sea, make our skin to lose its shine, vitality and softness, but also durability in time. The plastic surgeon Apostolos Gaitanis MD CCST, a partner in the Medical Centre of Athens (www.agaitanis.gr) explains to us what we can do, in order to maintain the skin of our face deeply moisturized, radiant and healthy in order to be able to “fight” the wear and tear of the summer.
Hydration facial with mesotherapy
The hydration with injectable hyaluronic is the ideal method to reverse the traces of dryness and dehydration. Hyaluronic acid can be applied all over the face in the form of mesotherapy, as well as quenched the skin in depth and gives it again to the lost youth and radiance.
“We’re doing small tweaks with multivitamin preparations and hyaluronic acid in points of the face, neck, and décolleté, providing hydration, shine and a smoother and firmer skin. Mesotherapy is the most drastic solution for the direct hydration of the face and the result of it has a long life”, stresses the plastic surgeon.
The mesotherapy with hyaluronic acid is usually repeated after 3-6 months, depending on the needs of each skin. Finally, the hyaluronic acid, besides moisturizing, it can be used to give volume to specific points of the face. In parallel improves the wrinkles.
Wrinkles neck end with micro botox
The so-called micro-botox is a new use of botox, which can be applied to the forehead, eyes and neck, which is considered to be the most difficult point.
Is used specific dosage of already known material, where, with a special technique and a very fine needle, and with a lot of small ενγχύσεις, mount carefully the material on the surface of the muscle.
Says Dr. Apostolos Gaitanis: “it Is an ideal choice for women who wish an even more natural result, without the “frozen” expression, which sometimes occurs after excessive use of botox, but the non-contraction of the muscle.
Its effectiveness is most prominent in the neck, where the new technique of botox can help stroke it, while improving the possible relaxation, which may have occurred, and offering the best shape in the area. It also helps to disappear the horizontal wrinkles and improve the appearance of skin”.
The micro botox can be applied in the forehead region, as well as in the eyes, to disappear wrinkles and improve the skin quality.
The effect lasts from 4 to 6 months.
