Texture

Sensitive to touch and sight, the texture reveals the health of the skin, pointing to the care it needs. When there are deficiencies and imbalances in the body, the skin may show without brightness, luster and hydration. The texture of the skin worsens factors such as excess sun, pollution and stress, among others.

Older people and European descendants have thin, sensitive, opaque skin with tiny pores, peeling and superficial lines. Dry skin (Alipic), with insufficient sebaceous secretion and imbalance of water content in the outermost protection, is also called keratin.

Most common among Brazilians, mixed skin has visible pores and greasiness between the nose, chin, forehead and sides of the face. In cities with hot weather, the most frequent is the oily lipid skin, with sebaceous gland hypersecretion, shiny appearance and prone to acne and blackheads. If dehydrated, it may have peeling, roughness and poor resistance, but it may also have dryness, skin lesions and secretions.

Fotona Erbium®

Female > Facial Treatments

System that uses two complementary wavelengths and a robotic tip that scans the treatment area. As a result, the laser application is homogeneous and even more accurate. This combination of two types of laser translates into a four-dimensional treatment without harming the skin.

The technology is also used in facial rejuvenation, improving the relief, texture and contour of the face, as well as stimulating the production of collagen.

Because it’s not very strong, Laser Fotona Erbium can be used in the eye region and even inside the mouth. This way is used to reduce dark circles, as it decreases sagging around the eyes and evens the skin color in place. It is also recommended for lip treatment, since it stimulates the production of collagen from the inside out.

Post-treatment: No downtime.

Protocol: 3 sessions, monthly.

Result: From the 2nd session.

Microdermabrasion

Female > Facial Treatments

Also called the lunchtime peel, this is a technique that removes aged cells and stimulates the production of young and new collagen cells. It is based on the projection of microcrystalline jets onto the skin, causing slight exfoliation. With it, superficial scars are minimized, as are light spots and fine wrinkles. The skin is softer, luminous and rejuvenated looking, without the hassle of conventional peeling.

Post-treatment: No downtime.

Protocol: 10 sessions, weekly.

Result: Gradual, from the first session.

Peeling

Female > Facial Treatments

It is a technique recommended to stimulate cell renewal. Through natural, mechanical or chemical agents, peeling causes exfoliation of the skin, eliminating its most superficial part, the epidermis. The goal is to stimulate the rapid formation of new layer in its place, which always happens from the inside out, from the dermis to the epidermis.

The intensity of the peel varies between superficial, medium or deep. The skin cells are thus stimulated to grow rejuvenated, softer and clearer. Only the doctor is able to recommend peelings, because it is necessary to be precise about the depth conditions of the skin, characteristic that varies from person to person. In case of inaccuracy in the exfoliation process, excessive peeling can cause infections and leave scars.

Post-treatment: At medical discretion.

Protocol: At physician’s discretion.

Result: On average, 1 week after 1st session.

Starwalker

Female > Facial Treatments

Starwalker is a picosecond and nanosecond laser that safely removes all pigment tones from the skin. It is the newest treatment for removing tattoos, blemishes, spots, dark circles and melasma. The energy waves allow a photoacoustic effect of greater intensity, breaking the skin pigments into smaller particles, increasing efficiency, speed and safety.

Post-treatment: For dark spots and melasmas, no post-treatment required. For some tattoos, a small bandage is necessary, as well as anesthetic ointment.

Protocol: The number of sessions depends on the pigmentation of the discolored areas or tattoo. For a melasma, it’s necessary to have between 4 – 6 sessions.

Result: Immediate, with evolution after the end of treatment.

Tixel®

Female > Facial Treatments

It is a thermal system that acts by fractional action, that is, by discontinuous emissions of heat. recommended for rejuvenation, when applied to the skin, the emitted heat reaches only the upper dermis. Everything is very fast, resulting in two actions: the skin becomes more permeable to drugs and actives; and so starts producing new, better quality collagen.

Post-treatment: Redness lasting 6 to 12 hours; Small crusts form after 24 hours and last up to 3 days.

Protocol: 3 and 5 sessions, monthly.
