Frequently Asked Questions

How does laser therapy on blood vessels work?

Laser technology emits pulses of light energy which performs clotting of the torn vessels, which are then absorbed by your body. 

Non-invasive laser technology to is effective in treating wrinkles, enlarged pores, uneven skin texture, diffuse redness and sun damage. You can see subtle yet consistent results after each treatment, without unwanted side effects such as bruising or excessive skin irritation.

Treatments can be performed in a relaxed, comfortable manner, without the use of local anesthetics or gel.

Diffuse redness is the general redness of the face. This problem is caused by dilated capillaries, leading to the overall striking redness, with visible blood vessels.

The areas most commonly affected are the nose, the forehead and the cheeks. Diffuse redness is often associated with rosacea. Laser therapy helps to treat and reduce the number and intensity of episodes of "flush".

It can be treated successfully and hemangiomas, most times in a single session.

Patients with any type of skin can be treated with laser therapy.

How many laser therapy sessions are needed?

The number of sessions varies depending on the chosen therapy and the severity of the problems.

In most cases, one or two treatments are sufficient. For the treatment of excessive redness, enlarged pores, uneven texture of the skin and fine wrinkles relatively discrete results are seen after one or two sessions, the desired results usually appearing after 4-6 sessions. Every patient is different, and your doctor can advise you on your specific condition.

In general you do not need gel, anesthetic cream or ice prior to the treatment. Before the laser treatment all traces of makeup or moisturizer will have to be removed and, in some cases, the area to be treated must be shaved. Your physician will oversee the preparations.

Most patients experience a stinging sensation as the pulses are sent through the handpiece. Although no local anesthesia is required for pain, some patients opt for a local anesthetic prior to treatment . After treatment, the pain is almost nonexistent.

What happens after the laser therapy treatment?

After the treatment, redness or bruising may occur in the skin. When treating larger veins, darker coloration of the treated area may persist for several weeks or months after the treatment. Patients who have undergone a treatment for the leg veins may be advised to wear a support hose for a short time.

What are the possible side effects of laser therapy?

Most patients have little or no side effects. The most common side effects of laser therapy are slight reddening and local swelling. Side effects usually last up to 24 hours.

Are there any restrictions on my activity after the laser therapy treatment?

In general, patients can resume normal activities immediately. However, it is recommended to avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours after the treatment. We recommend the use of sunscreen on the treated areas that will be exposed to the sun. In any case, we recommend limited exposure to the sun.

Although these treatments are very effective, 1% of the patients do not achieve the desired results!

Lipolysis

Creste metabolismul, circulatia sanguina si gradul de oxigenare al zonei injectate.

Lipolysis is a non-surgical method of reducing the layers of fat under the skin. It can access all areas of the body from the periorbital area to the abdomen, thighs, hips.

The best results are obtained in the "goiter” are, for treating "puffiness" under the eyes, waists and internal areas of the knee.

Lipolysis agents are used in combination with other helpful substances (vasodilators, resorption, humidifiers etc) . The commonly used product in lipolysis is called "phosphatidylcholine" (lecithin), and is obtained from soy extract.

Lipolysis is not a method of losing weight! This technique is very useful in body reshaping in limited areas, areas that can not be reduced by diet and exercise.

Immediately after the injection, the treated area becomes red, swollen, the local temperature increases and there is a slight feeling of pain, all signs of local inflammation will gradually make their appearance. These local events last about 3-4 days, then gradually reduce and disappear. Also, there may be bruising which will go away in about a week.

The longer the signs of local inflammation last, the better the results of the lipolysis will be.

The local inflammation is the external manifestation of the lysis (destruction of fat deposits) process. If we set up an anti-inflammatory treatment after the injection, it will counteract the lipolysis and we will get poor results.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does a session of lipolysis last?

Usually no more than 4-6 ampoules of phosphatidyl choline are injected, thus the lipolysis session lasts about 30 minutes.

Is the lipolysis treatment painful?

Very fine needles are used so the minimal stinging perceived should be well supported even by the most sensitive of patients.

What can I expect after the lipolysis treatment?

Injected area becomes red, warm and painful to the touch, these changes lasting from several hours to several days, depending on the genetic material and each of us. During this time it is not advisable to administer anti-inflammatory agents as they can counteract the lipolytic effect.

When can I see the first results of the lipolysis treatment?

The first results are measurable after an interval of 5 to 8 weeks. The treatment may be repeated only after 8 weeks.

What are the contraindications for lipolysis?

The only contraindication is a serious bleeding disorder or a serious disease of the skin. Hypercholesterolemia or severe cardiovascular or atherosclerotic diseases are relative contraindications.

Subscision

Metoda naturala de a scapa de riduri, fara injectii, fara operatii, fara iritatii.

Subscision is an aesthetic medicine technic that consists in using a fine needle that produces "irritation" at every wrinkle in order to stimulate the collagen. After the treatment the area stimulated is presented as a "scratch" that will heal in 2-4 days by local collagen formation.

It was originally designed to treat fine wrinkles and acne scars and was named BioSkinJetting. Later this method was extended in use. In the Care Zone clinic this technique is used to treat:

  1. wrinkles (see BSJ )
  2. acne scars
  3. depressed scars
  4. cellulite
  5. definitive unevenness post liposuction

For cellulite, subscizia may have beneficial effects by destroying enter and subdermal septa, septa responsible for the appearance of the "orange peel".

After a specialized consultant to determine which cellulite areas can be trated by this procedure, the skin is disinfected with surgical cleaning products and this technique is applied.

During this maneuver there will be some superficial bleeding so it is advisable that it is practiced in conditions of absolute sterility. After the treatment the skin can be bruised and / or slightly swollen for a few days. Local cold applications are typically enough to remove any inconvenience felt.

This is a very new technique, it seems to have good results for normal weight patients on localized areas, especially for cellulite resistant to other forms of treatment with a strong fibrous component.

Frequently Asked Questions

How many subscision treatment sessions are needed?

Usually 2-3 treatment sessions are needed at a variable interval depending on the condition treated. In the case of cellulite and post liposuction definitive bumps it can be repeated every 4-6 months. In the case of depressive scars subscizia can be accompanied with a method of filling, such as  grease filling. For wrinkles the interval between sessions is 2 weeks. It can be associated with injections of botulinum toxin (botox) at the same level to get long lasting results. In all cases it is forbidden the sun exposure of the treated areas for a period of six months.

How long does a subscision session last?

Each session lasts from 10-30 minutes, depending on the size of the treated area. For larger areas it may take longer. It is necesary that the conditions of absolute sterility are satisfied.

Is subscision a painful maneuver?

The treatment of wrinkles and acne scars is done with local anesthesia, by applying creams with an anesthetic effect. For other conditions a local anesthetic injection is needed. In the case of more extensive interventions general anesthesia may be required.

What are the contraindications of subscision?

The contraindications of subscizia are serious skin diseases, severe blood clotting diseases, diabetes, serious chronic diseases, chronic infections etc.

Are the results of subscision definitive?

Usually the results are very durable. But sometimes it takes another series of treatments at a variable interval between 4 and 10 months. The results are maintained over time and depending on how the skin and underlying tissues are cared for. The results also vary greatly from one person to another.

When treating cellulite, if subscizia is not accompanied by methods of disease maintenance and prevention, the results will not be sustainable.

What are the complications of subscision?

Complications of this technique are local infections, excessive bleeding, bruising, hematoma, hyperpigmentations in exposure to sunlight etc.

Although these treatments are very effective, 1% of the patients do not achieve the desired results!

Chemical peeling

The chemicals used are glycolic acid for wrinkles and superficial irritation and trichloroacetic acid (TCA) for deeper irregularities and discoloration. For a more aggressive treatment is needed medical vacation for a few days to several weeks. There can also be used combinations of acids weak if used by themselves, but powerfull in combination.

These substances can be used in many different concentrations, depending on the depth we want for the peeling. More than one session may be required to achieve the desired result.

The healed skin after such a treatment will be able to produce pigment as before and will not be faded. However, patients are advised to use cosmetics with UV blockers or avoid sun exposure for several months after the treatment.

The same treatment can be used to "mitigate" the appearance of unsightly stretch marks.

Chemical peeling:

  • remove superficial wrinkles
  • removes superficial irritation

What can you learn from an evaluation session for chemical peeling?

Injected area becomes red, warm and painful to the touch, these changes lasting for several hours to several days, depending on the genetic material of each of us. At this time it is not advisable to administer anti-inflammatory agents as they can annihilate the lipolytic effect.

How is the chemical peeling done?

The skin is previously treated with special cleansing products or undergoes microdermabrasion to remove natural fats located in the skin. Then apply successive layers of acid. The response time of the acid is established before the treatment and before its expiry the acid is neutralize and the acid product is removed, or the acid is carefully monitored by your doctor and the doctor will act as needed to neutralize it.

Wrinkle Treatment

Scapa de riduri si intinereste cu 10 ani!

Wrinkles represent folds of skin that form due to the action of muscles just below it. Wrinkles are formed both on the face and other areas such as arms, neck , décolleté , inter and inframammary etc, by far the most annoying being the ones localized on the face.

Methods for prevention of wrinkles (too early) have a common denominator keeping skin quality. Genetics plays an important but not defining. Environmental factors and lifestyle are important in wrinkle treatment. 

Skin is the most voluminous organ of the human body. It is understood that any medical condition that affects the body completely, will leave traces in the skin. The essential role of this organ is to protect against aggressive external factors (cold, heat, humidity , toxic substances etc).

The skin is the mirror of the entire body. Healthy skin reflects a general state of health. Prolonged exposure to any of uncontrolled environmental factors mentioned above will lead too skin quality deterioration. 

The following factors are directly involved in accelerating the formation of wrinkles:

  • Prolonged exposure to sunlight causes destruction of collagen in the skin and pronounced wrinkling, feature more common in people with very pale skin.
  • Cold causes decreased circulation in the facial skin, temporary closure of peripheral vessels, decreased production of sebum, slowing the toxins removing and the skin starts to slowly degrade.
  • High temperatures with low humidity cause dehydration of the skin, lower production in the sweat glands and early wrinkling.
  • Air currents affect the skin because they virtually "dry" it. If air currents are associated with low temperatures, the negative effects are potentiated.

Prevention involves removing wrinkles or reducing exposure to the above factors, the application of creams with a high SPF, the use of greasy creams in the cold and warm periods and the use of moisturizing creams. Knowing that in our country the climate is dry, avoid exposure to strong air currents, either in summer or winter.

One way our grandparents know very well regarding weinkle treatment is to apply a hot wet towel. Wet sauna is also very good for maintaining skin's moisture level.

Lifestyle and diet are very important. Sleep quantity and quality, lack of stress of any kind, a diet rich in fluids and fiber, and lacking in animal fats, not smoking, taking over the course of 2 weeks, 2 times a year, antioxidant vitamins (vitamin C , vitamin E), are all ways which will delay the appearance of wrinkles.

Methods of wrinkle treatment

Non-surgical wrinkle treatment

  1. Monthly facial treatment or at least every two months: it represents a series of maneuvers and applications of various cosmetic products suitable for your skin to produce a deep cleansing, moisturizing and nourishing. Determining skin type must be done correctly and the products used must be chosen knowingly, because the application of products that are not suitable for your skin can cause side effects. Here are a few secrets you can use in your home if you don't want to use commercial products or are allergic to them: best masks for dry skin that lacks sebum are based on egg yolk, to which you can add a teaspoon of cheese, a few drops of olive oil or vitamin A+E oil . During winter it is recommended you use a hot milk mask; soak several pieces of cotton wool in milk and apply them on face as a mask.

    In summer the best masks for the same type of skin are based on fruits (apricots, peaches, watermelon, etc) or vegetables (cucumber , tomato , carrot). For acne oily skins use egg whites with lemon juice added. Masks with yeast and honey are recommended for all skin types, especially during the cold season. Aply warm herbal decoction (chamomile, sage, rosemary, lavender, calendula, linden flowers, peppermint) on the face in order to obtain a high moisturizing effect both in summer and winter. All these masks must be preceded by a deep cleansing of the skin by using peeling products (corn or bran), a massage to stimulate circulation at this level and accelerate detoxification and skin hydration by wet sauna in advance.  
     

  2. Chemical peels involve appling products with acidic properties on the skin, which will cause the removal of the superficial layers of the skin and stimulate the production of "young" skin. Depending on the products used, their concentration and the action time, the peeling can be superficial, medium or deep. After this treatment the skin needs special care for periods up to 2 months.
     
  3. Microdermabrasion is a mechanical method of removing the superficial layers of the skin. Dermabrasion devices are varied, the effect is mainly the same: deep cleaning.
     
  4. BioSkinJetting or subscizia is a method for stimulating the collagen production within each wrinkle in part. Immediately after the treatment, the treated wrinkles will be fine red lines that can be easily covered with make-up and disappear within 2-4 days, being replaced by young collagen. Just as with chemical peelings, young tissue needs special care. Sometimes it takes more than one treatment session to obtaina favorable results.
     
  5. Rejuvenation using Intensive Pulse Light involves application to the skin of radiation with a specific wavelength. Not only does this not cause hyperpigmentation damage to the skin, but it fades the existing ones. As a side effect, it brings an improvement to the overall appearance of the skin's collagen and mitigation of fine wrinkles.
     
  6. Laser peels therapy. Laser therapy is a method that removes a layer of skin, removing also the intense pigmentation and the wrinkles. The recovery period lasts a few weeks.
     
  7. Injectable gels can be used to mitigate the appearance of deep wrinkles and nasolabial grooves (between nose and mouth). The volume substances are produced in several densities, the least dense ones being ideal for "filling" up the wrinkles. Gels can have a temporary effect (several months) or a long lasting effect (a few years), the last ones having a risk of local adverse effects (irritation, patchy inflammation).
     
  8. The botulinum toxin is a product that is injected in the facial muscles and cause relaxation of that muscle for a period between four and six months. The effect is temporary, the muscles gradually reverts to its initial state.

    It is important to choose carefully when tp start this treatment. When the first wrinkles appear that no longer disappear when applying non-medical methods of treatment, then it is appropriate to start this therapy.

    This method is virtually risk-free, the amount of botulinum toxin contained in the serum being extremely low. Allergy to this type of treatment is very rare. Results are installed gradually over several days, and the overall effect of treatment is obtained after a week.

    Each treatment lasts a few minutes. At the injection site remain signs that resemble a mosquito sting. These signs disappear after a few minutes to half an hour. Sometimes there may be a bruise that can be covered easily with make-up and that disappears by itself after 3-4 days.

    Nobody in your entourage will notice the difference, your physiognomy remains the same. What changes though is the overall appearance of the face, meaning it will look more rested and relaxed.

Surgical wrinkle treatment

  1. Autologous transfer is a surgical method of harvesting fat from the patient's own belly, processing it and injecting it in the wrinkles, lips, cheeks etc. It is also called microlipofiling. The surgery can be done under local anesthesia, in both surgical areas, and the desired effects last only after at least three such " fills" have been performed with six months in between them. Half of the amount of fat is reabsorbed in a few months, so every intervention neededs to "overfill", so the initial volume will be higher than desired.
     
  2. The total or partial face lift of the forehead and eyebrows is a surgical procedures that removes excess skin, the face regaining a tonic and fresh look. Usually this procedure is associated with one of the above non-surgical methods. It represents the most radical method of treatment, with lasting effect, for years or decades. Even after the intervention, methods of care should continue to prevent skin damage.

The new approach to the treatment of wrinkles is the combination of treatments. Simultaneous application of two types of therapies will lead to obtaining superior results than if one single application. Combining these methods can bring spectacular results. Some examples of associations:

  • BioSkinJetting with botulinum toxin: the botulinum serum relaxes facial uscles for a period of several months, long enough for the young collagen obtained by BioSkinJetting to mature. After this combination, most often there is no need for a new treatment with toxin serum or BioSkinJetting for period of time.
     
  • Chemical peeling and botulinum toxin, combination used in treating deep wrinkles in older age. By relaxing the muscl a significant percentage of wrinkles is attenuated, the rest responding to chemical peels therapy.
     
  • The combination of gels and botulinum toxin injection is used very frequently. Botulinum toxin therapy is applicable only for the wrinkles in the upper half of the face and the wrinkles in the lower half are treated by injecting gels. The triad of botulinum toxin, gel injections and peeling (or IPL or laser therapy) is sovereign in aesthetic medicine today, the efficiency is high compared with the degree of invasiveness of the method and thus the preferred surgical method.
     
  • The pairing of any surgical techniques with one or more non-surgical methods is the latest trend in aesthetic medicine. Cosmetic surgery has its well established role in the treatment of facial wrinkles and skin ptosis. The results are superior when indications of the surgical methods are strictly obeyed.

Our lips change shape and volume with age. Science offers solutions in this sense, so fashionable today are shiny and voluminous lips, a sign of youth and health.

Lip augmentation, known also as cheiloplastia augmentation, is a procedure for increasing the volume of the lips, that can be surgical or not. There are ALSO other procedures for the molding and shaping of the lips and also for lip lifting.

This process uses a very wide variety of products, permanent or temporary injections, lip implants or even use of own fat. For lip augmentation there can be usede synthetic or biological products or own tissues collected and returned surgically.

The ideal injectable product must be soft, pliable and permanent and does not cause any complications. At the moment there is no such product. Doctors everywhere obtain remarkable results by using products currently on the market. The latest research allows us to have more confidence in injectable products with temporary effects. In this case there are no significant adverse effects, and the latest products launched have a high purity.
