Botulinum toxin, one of the most poisonous biological substances known, is a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinumC. botulinum elaborates eight antigenically distinguishable exotoxins (A, B, C1, C2, D, E, F and G). All serotypes interfere with neural transmission by blocking the release of acetylcholine, the principal neurotransmitter at the neuromuscular junction, causing muscle paralysis. The weakness induced by injection with botulinum toxin A usually lasts about three months. Botulinum toxins now play a very significant role in the management of a wide variety of medical conditions, especially strabismus and focal dystonias, hemifacial spasm, and various spastic movement disorders, headaches, hypersalivation, hyperhidrosis, and some chronic conditions that respond only partially to medical treatment. The list of possible new indications is rapidly expanding. The cosmetological applications include correction of lines, creases and wrinkling all over the face, chin, neck, and chest to dermatological applications such as hyperhidrosis. Injections with botulinum toxin are generally well tolerated and side effects are few. A precise knowledge and understanding of the functional anatomy of the mimetic muscles is absolutely necessary to correctly use botulinum toxins in clinical practice.


Sculptra is a long-lasting collagen builder composed of a polylactic acid that naturally stimulates cells to start producing their own collagen.

  • It is BIO-Degradable so it is eliminated by the body gradually and completely, without residues remaining in the body.
  • It is BIO-Compatible so it is not necessary to perform allergy tests.
  • It is NOT a filler material like hyaluronic acid or Radiesse but a medication that directly stimulates dermal collagen, type I and type III.

Why is collagen so important?

The loss of collagen is a key factor in the aging process as it causes the dermis to become thinner and lose elasticity and moisture, which leads to the dreaded sagging. That is why Sculptra is ideal for people who suffer LIPOATROPHY, that is, a significant loss of facial fat due to aging or weight loss.

What do we use Sculptra for?

  • To improve sagging and texture of facial skin.
  • Increase the volume of sunken areas such as furrows, folds, dark circles or scars.
  • Redefine contours and thicken the dermis.
  • Recover the skin after secondary photodamage caused by continued exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays.
  • Improve the quality of the skin on the back of the hands, neck, neckline, arms, thighs, knees and buttocks.
  • And also for buttock lifting (currently one of Sculptra’s star bodies).


Plasma Gel is a revolutionary natural filler that is obtained from the patient’s own blood plasma, it is used to correct signs of aging at any age, it acts to fill in grooves, wrinkles, depressions or any surface irregularity, it also serves to contour to certain areas such as lips, cheeks and hands.

This new technique is included in the so-called “regenerative” technique due to its benefits compared to current hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxyapatite fillers, since 25% of the plasma gel is permanently fixed in the body, stimulating collagen production.

Plasma Gel is an autologous substance, that is, from the patient herself. It does not have toxicity, nor is it capable of generating allergic reactions. The technique is completely safe as long as it is performed in a properly prepared center that complies with all the necessary permits ( see recommended clinics). Before doing the procedure, an evaluation of the patient’s skin is carried out and it is always advisable to verify the treatment possibilities with the doctor.

This treatment is contraindicated if the evaluation detects any inflammatory or infectious process in the area to be treated. There are cases in which, for safety reasons, pregnant and breastfeeding women are not treated, but that depends on medical judgment.

As for the possible consequences of treatment with Plasma Gel, you should know that they are almost non-existent. Since, as we explained before, what is injected originates from the patient himself, there are no problems with allergies or adverse reactions.

There are cases in which small hematomas may occur, which occur as a consequence of the puncture, but they are mild, pinpoint and disappear quickly. Nothing that a little makeup can’t hide.

Plasma Gel has great benefits because it is a platelet-rich plasma.


The concept of plasma facial has turned out to be the most debatable topic in recent times. Ideally, it is not just a plasma facial, but Platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) facial, and this elaboration itself defines how healthy this prp facial treatment is!

Inarguably, PRP facial undergoes several complex procedures that the subject matter experts shall strictly perform to avoid the ill effects of the same.

The serum is packed with bioactive proteins such as platelets and other growth factors that are known to have anti-aging properties. PRP can help improve the skin’s overall health including everything from wrinkle reduction to textural irregularities. How Does PRP Work? The process of getting PRP is minimally-invasive.

  • On the day of the appointment, the technicians draw the blood and use a centrifuge to separate red cells from it. The remaining platelet-rich plasma is set aside to be used in the process as this protein-rich plasma helps to stimulate collagen production on the face skin.
  • To ensure that skin feels numb, topical cream is used about 15-20 minutes before the treatment starts. Followed by the infusion of r Phyto-boost of hyaluronic acid, thus the skin becomes fully hydrated and pigmentation-free by now.
  • Once the skin feels hydrated, the plasma is spread across the face and a micro-needling device is used to allow protein-rich substances to travel in the depth of the skin. With such infusion of PRP into the skin, it experiences double collagen-boosting,

Benefits of Plasma Facial Treatment

  • It helps to reduce wrinkles and stretch marks.
  • It works effectively for acne scars and skin discoloration.
  • Acts as a prominent solution to enhance skin thickness.
  • No scope for dead skin cells to exist as it is replaced by protein-rich plasma.
  • The collagen production increases, as a result, skin feels lighter, brighter, and young.
  • With this the complete plasma facial rejuvenation takes place.

Though after the completion of the process you might experience superficial pain or minor bruising due to the micro-needling technique. But that shouldn’t trouble or dishearten you at all because this does not stay much longer.

Furthermore, one can witness gradual improvements within 2-3 weeks of the treatment. So, be the next one in the row to consult the right expertise and experience a revolutionary skin change with PRP facial.

Dermal filler Hyaluronic Acid



Dermal fillers contain a hyaluronic acid gel that can be injected into your cheeks, lips, and around your mouth to give you a younger-looking appearance. Hyaluronic acid helps your skin stay moist, soft, and full. Fillers replace the fat, helping you enjoy firmer cheeks and fuller lips. They can also reduce the appearance of wrinkles around your mouth by adding volume beneath your skin to smooth out folds.

It can be used alone or in combination with other cosmetic treatments, to create a natural, younger-looking appearance.


Carboxytherapy is used to treat cellulite, dark under-eye circles, and stretch marks. People who undergo the procedure find an improvement in:

  • circulation
  • skin elasticity
  • fine lines and wrinkles

It also aids with collagen repair and the destruction of fatty deposits.

For fat and cellulite reduction, the procedure is often preferred over more invasive and high-risk methods, such as liposuction.

Carboxytherapy can be used on the face, eyelids, neck, stomach, arms, legs, and buttocks.

How is carboxytherapy performed?

The specifics of the procedure will vary based on the part of the body being treated. The mechanics of the procedure, however, are mostly the same.

A tank of carbon dioxide gas is connected to a flow-regulator with plastic tubing. The physician will carefully regulate how much gas flows from the tank. The gas is emitted through the flow-regulator and into sterile tubing that has a filter at the end. The filter picks up any impurities before they reach the body. The gas then runs through a very small needle on the opposite side of the filter. The physician injects the gas beneath the skin through the needle.

The procedure is almost entirely painless. Some physicians rub numbing cream on the injection site before inserting the needle. Despite the lack of pain, some people report feeling a strange sensation briefly afterward.

Carboxytherapy is an outpatient procedure, and it usually only takes about 15 to 30 minutes to complete.

How do you prepare for carboxytherapy?

There is no specific preparation before the procedure, though your physician may have special instructions depending on your circumstances.

How the procedure works

Poor blood circulation is partially responsible for cellulite, stretch marks, and dark under-eye circles. Cells in the body release carbon dioxide as waste. Red blood cells take the oxygen you inhale and carry it to tissues, then pick up carbon dioxide. Eventually, the carbon dioxide is exhaled by the lungs.

A physician can increase blood circulation to a specific area by injecting carbon dioxide, causing the red blood cells to rush to the area. When the blood cells reach the location, they create an increase in circulation. This works to repair skin elasticity and, in the case of under-eye circles, change pigment to a healthy glow.

  • Stretch marks: The stretch marks you see on your body are a rupture of dermal collagen. Carboxytherapy creates new collagen, which thickens the skin and improves its appearance.
  • Cellulite: Carbon dioxide gas can also be injected into fat cells, which causes the cells to burst and be eliminated in the body. Cellulite is caused when subcutaneous fat protrudes through the skin.
  • Under-eye circles: Dark circles under the eyes are usually caused by poor circulation, which creates vascular pooling. Injecting the gas under the eyelid reduces this bluish pooling and replaces it with a blush tone.
  • Alopecia: Alopecia (hair loss) caused by poor circulation can be treated with carboxytherapy as well.

What are the side effects of carboxytherapy?

Carboxytherapy is a relatively safe procedure with almost no side effects. People may have bruising at the injection site, specifically in the arms and legs. This bruising should clear up within a week. People who get the procedure for fat reduction or cellulite also shouldn’t immerse themselves in water for 24 hours, including swimming or using a bathtub.

What to expect after

When carboxytherapy is used to treat stretch marks and scars, it’s relatively painless. This is because scar tissue doesn’t have nerves. You may feel an itching sensation as the stretch marks are distended during the procedure. The itchiness should resolve in about five minutes.

People who use carboxytherapy for treating cellulite and fatty deposits may feel pressure during the injection, similar to the sensation felt during a blood pressure test. This is caused by the expanding gas. Treated areas will feel warm and tingly after the treatment for up to 24 hours, as the carbon dioxide gas does its job and circulation improves. However, you should be able to perform your normal routine after the procedure is over.
