Aesthetic dermatology is a very important area of skin care, which treats or prevents skin diseases, mainly aesthetic. Non-invasive methods are used for skin reformation as well as for treatment of facial and body skin lesions.
The dermatologist Athanasios Pavlidis provides specialized aesthetic dermatology services, due to his intensive training, and by his specific technique whilst also applying the most modern and effective facial and body treatments.
Mesotherapy is used to regenerate the skin, treat fine wrinkles (correction to older people – prevent new wrinkles in younger ages), treat fine scars, fight some forms of alopecia, treat cellulite, etc. Mesotherapy activates the process of skin rejuvenation from the inside out without affecting the shape or expression of the face.
Since permanent implants have the disadvantage that they cannot be removed, if something goes wrong or the patient does not like the result, dermatologist Athansios Pavlidis instead uses semi-permanent and absorbable implants such as hyaluronic acid, Radiesse or polycaprolactone (ELLANSE), and autologous fat transplantation (the doctor transfers fat from one part of the body to transplant it into a deep wrinkle).
BOTOX – DYSPORT
(BOTOX-DYSPORT) is the most used method to correct wrinkles on the face and neck. The botulinum toxin mechanism is based on correcting the muscles that cause wrinkles which in turn enhances the action of “competitive” muscles, resulting in an arrid, fresh and restful face.
The Diamond Microdermabrasion is the most advanced microdermabrasion treatment for the face and body. Using machine heads made of genuine laser cut diamonds, the surface layer of the skin is instantly removed, resulting in smooth skin, while a gentle aspiration activates the formation of new collagen & elastin.
Micro Needling therapy is a method that exploits the use of microwells for natural collagen production and at the same time the transdermal delivery of small amounts of active substances. It aims at satisfactory improvement of wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth and eyes as well as in the deep hydration of the skin. It also helps in improving previous scarring and gives luster to the epidermis.
Peelings remove certain layers of the epidermis and / or dermis (deeper layers) to improve fine lines and dyschromic lesions. Peelings can be done chemically or mechanically, or using a laser. Chemical peelings are also an option, which can be done by applying substances such as alpha-hydroxy acids, trichloric acid (TCA), phenol, etc.
PLATELET – RICH PLASMA THERAPY (PRP)
Platelet-rich plasma therapy or PRP is a widespread technique of the skin through surface infusion of substances and vitamins. In PRP (also known as autologous Mesotherapy), however, we use material from our own body after appropriate treatment. It is considered to be the most biocompatible treatment, as it uses autologous plasma components and platelet-derived growth factors that stimulate the natural mechanisms of regeneration, as well as from the blood of the patient itself, instead of exogenous elements. In addition, its effect lasts longer than any other traditional mesotherapy, thanks to its autologous action, with the results lasting up to 6 months.
DESOFACE & DESOBODY
DesoFace is a fat dissolving solution that targets the cell membrane of the adipocytes and improves adiposities of neck and face. It helps improves the skin and areas of the face such as the ‘double chin’.
DesoBody can be applied to almost the entire human body. The best results can be obtained from patients with moderate body weight or who are slightly overweight with local fat accumulation in anatomical areas such as the abdomen, hips, hindquarters, thighs, etc., where fat is not disappears despite diet and physical activity.
Mesotoxin is the combination of mesotherapy (amino acids, hyaluronic acid) and botulinum toxin type A (Botox – Dysport).
THREAD LIFT (PDO, COG), APTOS THREADS
A thread lift is a type of procedure wherein temporary sutures are used to produce a subtle but visible “lift” in the skin. Instead of removing the patient’s loose facial skin surgically, doctor Athanasios Palividis simply suspends the face by stitching up portions of it. This has the effect of pulling the skin back slightly and therefore lifting and tightening the face. In addition to being ideal for lifting the skin, thread lifts combat the aging process by instigating the body’s “healing response”. This causes the body to direct large surges of collagen to treated areas. This is vital since collagen plays an important role in reversing the aging process.
Ecocryo is a non-invasive cryolipodialysis device for eliminating local thickness painlessly and without the need for recovery time. Special mechanical heads freeze (crystallize) the local fat. Cooling leads to cell death (apoptosis) of subcutaneous fat without causing a problem to the epidermis. Apoptosis eliminates adipocytes without making it difficult for the body’s functions. This process continues for up to 90 days after application.
Points of Application:
Stomach | Feet | Buttocks | Hips
Knees | Arms | Back
Scarlet RF is a bipolar, non-invasive fractional radio frequency laser with mini-computing needles. It provides instant, controlled heat to the epidermis and dermis, at a depth of 0.5-3.5mm. Scarlet RF has the potential to achieve fractional treatments without pain and recovery time. The results are visible from the first session regardless of the patient’s skin type. Treatments take place all year long without fear of hyperpigmentation during the summer months.
