Aesthetic Medicine and Nutrition

     I am Dr. Felipe Bárcenas, I love and enjoy my profession, I like to share my knowledge, offering a comprehensive treatment to my patients with whom I share day to day.

     I dedicate myself to aesthetic medicine, aging and nutrition, an important triad in my professional practice, obtaining a life change of my patients, both physically and psychologically.

     My goal in my professional practice is to offer global treatments, providing them with harmony, naturalness and results’ satisfaction. It is also essential to care for the way we age, so we must prevent rather than cure, which is the goal of the Anti-Aging Medicine. Through our lifestyle changes we will improve our quality of life during this natural process. One of them is the nutrition, so remember: "we are what we eat", because a proper and balanced diet allows us to enjoy health and feel good both inside outside.
 
 
A brief description of some of the treatments:
 

                                                                             HYALURONIC ACID IMPLANTS

     Hyaluronic acid is a sterile, non-pyrogenic, clear, colorless and transparent gel implant composed of cross-linked hyaluronan molecules. After the first treatment, one or more additional injections of hyaluronic acid may be necessary to achieve the desired level of correction. To maintain the correction, it may be necessary to repeat the injections after a period of time (after 5 to 12 months). The need to re-injection depends on the location and some factors..
     The substances and devices used have been authorized for use in cosmetic medicine and bear the CE mark and corresponding health registration number
 
       
 

                                                                        TREATMENT WITH BOTULINAL TOXIN, AND CORRECTION OF HYPERHIDROSIS

     Injection of botulinum toxin type A causes the selective and temporary reduction of contraction in the overactive musculature, during a minimum period of 12.5 weeks, by the selective action in the peripheral cholinergic nerve endings.
 
     The correction of hyperhidrosis with botulinum toxin consists on the infiltration of small amounts of botulinum toxin in the affected area. This product inhibits neuromuscular transmission, and as a result, blocks the excess of sweat production. It is important to note that botulinum toxin has been used for many years in Ophthalmology and Neurology, for the treatment of strabismus, blepharospasm and muscle spasms, among other pathologies, so its use is well known and safe.
 
     Usually the treatment is done within a single session. Sometimes a monthly assessment is done and the treatment is completed. The infiltration is done with a very thin needle, and is practically painless. The effect appears around the 3rd - 6th day, and (usually) is completed at the 15th day.
 
 

 

                                                                         FILLING IMPLANTS

     Implants are substances to fill depressions of the skin. According to its origin we distinguish two types, those with an animal origin (rooster crest, bovine) that need allergie tests, and the synthetic ones.
 
     These treatments are indicated for wrinkles, atrophic scars, post acne scars, other skin depressions, and enlargement and profiling of lips.
 
     Depending on its duration, we will distinguish three groups:
               -“Temporal": its duration depends on each person, but ranges from three to six monthss.
               -"Semipermanent": its approximate duration is two yeas.
               - Durable": according to the prospects of the manufacturers laboratories its duration is indefinite since they are not resorbable, however it is
                 necessary to remark that the process of aging continues which will probably make some “retouching” necessary over the years.
 
 
 
 

                                                                         SILHOUETTE SOFT THREADS

     This procedure tries to obtain a volume increase or stretching of the skin in the area where the two-way Silhouette SOFT sutures are housed. Only local anesthesia is needed at the points of entry and exit of the threads. The sutures are inserted under sterile conditions through the skin into the subcutaneous tissue.
     The procedure is ambulatory and requires no incisions or stitches.
 
 
 
             SKINGOLD & SKINGOLD PLUS
 
     Pure gold thread associated with a thread of absorbable or non-absorbable synthetic material for facial rejuvenation
.
   The "Remmaillage" technique has become an advantageous method of rejuvenating the facial and neck skin, when the first signs of aging appear (wrinkles, sagging, etc.). It is based on the subdermal introduction of filaments of pure gold (99.999% purity) associated with another polyglycolic acid wire (which is absorbed by the organism) or with PVDF (which reinforces the action of the gold wire)o.
 
HOW DOES IT WORK?
 
     Recent studies of the University of Murcia have revealed the mechanism of action of this technique at the histological level: Polyglycolic Acid produces a well-known hydrolysis reaction, being reabsorbed within approximately 60 days.
    In the presence of gold, a reaction called "granulamatoid" or "granulomatous imperfecta" takes place, since it will be constituted almost exclusively by a crown of mononucleated histiocytes and peripherally by active fibroblasts, with no multinucleated giant cells and no kind of allergies.
 
 

             TREATMENT OF ADIPOSITIES LOCATED WITH AQUALIX® CHEMICAL ADIPOCYTOLYSIS TECHNIQUE

     The treatment consists of an infiltration of the fatty tissue with a substance with a detergent effect on the cell membranes of the adipocytes that will lead to the reduction of the thickness of the fat in the treated area. The technique can be complemented with ultrasound application in the area.
 
 

          MESOTHERAPY

     Mesotherapy is the injection of pharmacological and homeopathic substances into the subdermal space in small quantities. The type of substances is chosen according to the problem. This treatment improves cellulite or circulatory problems. It also gives a firming effect and improves wrinkles on the face and neck.
