Cosmetic Acupuncture

AESTHETIC HOMEOPATHIC MESOHERAPY OR COSMETIC BIOPUNCTURE

Description of the procedure

What is Aesthetic Homeopathic Mesotherapy?

Aesthetic Homeopathic Mesotherapy is a natural cosmetic treatment, which helps rejuvenate the skin in many parts of the body, including the face, neck and legs. It is a complementary health technique pioneered by the Italian physician Dr. Massimo de Bellis and used on the continent for some years. The treatment involves the use of fine injections, and works by combining the effectiveness of acupuncture and homeopathy. Homeopathic Mesotherapy, also known as Biopuncture, is now an established complementary treatment for many medical conditions. Aesthetic Homeo-Mesotherapy is the application of the same principles to achieve cosmetic benefits.

How does the treatment work?
Tiny amounts of homeopathic remedies are injected into the skin to stimulate the body’s own production of collagen, enabling the collagen to work more effectively. This leads to an improvement in skin tone and elasticity, revitalizing tissues and allowing the skin to become more hydrated. Unlike other cosmetic treatments such as Botox, Aesthetic Homeo-Mesotherapy is completely natural. It can be particularly effective when combined with lifestyle advice to aid the detoxification of the body. The technique is suitable for use on the face and many other parts of the body where it can reduce adiposity (fat deposits) and cellulite.

What products are injected?
These are predominantly plant-based homeopathic preparations that have been safely used for years by complementary health therapists. We usually use Guna Made mixed with Guna Collagen.
BENEFITS OF HOMEOPATHIC MESOTHERAPY:
• No side effects;
• A possibility to have treatment during pregnancy;
• A complete compatibility of the applicable medications, resulting in correction of several problems simultaneously;
• A possibility to mix 4 medications without a risk of complications.

In our opinion, the most important that makes a positive distinguish between homeo-mesotherapy and allopathic mesotherapy is a possibility of a systemic influence on the body by means of ultra-low doses of medications to correct immunity and provide a drainage effect on organs and systems!

Dr. Soto is able to help everybody who desires to improve his or her outer appearance by using natural homeopathic means and methods that boost immune system, improve natural reactions and hormonal balance.

What parts of the body can be treated?

• Facial wrinkles
• Forehead, cheeks and chin
• Neck
• Lower neck and décolletage

How many injections and sessions will I need?
The initial consultation will last around 40 minutes, and will include your first session of injections. Subsequent sessions will last about 20 minutes. During your first appointment you will be asked to fill in a simple health questionnaire and sign a consent form. Most patients require around 12 – 18 weekly sessions, followed by further maintenance sessions, every 2 or 3 months. Extremely fine needles are used for the injections, smaller than those used for conventional vaccinations.

How long does the cosmetic effect last?
Patients generally notice an improvement in their skin tone within days of their first treatment. The effect will last for as long as you continue to have regular follow up sessions after the main course of injections ends.

Activities such as sun tanning promote collagen destruction (catabolism) and skin-aging. In this case it is recommended to take a cycle of MADE® treatment.

Are there any side effects?
After the treatment you may experience temporary redness around the site of the injections, or minor swelling. In some cases, patients have mild bruising which normally clears within hours. We would not expect any negative long-term side effects.

Is Aesthetic Homeo-Mesotherapy safe?
Yes. The solutions that we use are produced by Guna International, a leading Italian producer and distributor of homeopathic remedies, all subject to strict quality control regulations; As well as being a pioneer in aesthetical medicine for more than 15 years.

The Guna Method
The best thing about the Guna method is that it actually makes the skin healthier. It naturally stimulates the cells and skin matrix to repair as part of an overall physiological healing. Each and every product contains ingredients that address the PNEI – psycho-neuro-endocrine-immune axis. By treating all of these levels, the body can fully accept, integrate, and act on the medicinal message. To me this takes the holistic philosophy of nature and traditional herbal medicine and combines it with a cutting edge delivery system. The results are cosmetic as well as internal.

GUNA’s innovative natural medications have a variety of benefits:
• Active ingredients, promoting fast immune response, assuring no side effects or contraindications and not provoking allergenic reactions;
• The treatment action is focused on the main aesthetic problems such as: wrinkles, cellulite, adiposity, muscle tone and ageing;
• Ease of administration according to mesotherapeutic techniques and neurological points that assure best local activity.

MADE® Method – Treatment for wrinkles and skin slackening!

MADE® is a natural homeopathic medication used both as a treatment for reducing the signs of aging and as a support for maintaining a youthful face.

Indications:
• Skin tone improvement;
• Reduction of face and neck wrinkles;
• Local treatment of skin aging;
• Stimulation of connective tissue metabolism.

What kind of results could be expected?
MADE® promotes a “flattening” effect on wrinkles that improves with every procedure thanks to a better metabolism of skin cells. MADE® is not a filler. The results are visible immediately, as the skin looks more healthy and shiny. The tissue tone improves considerably and the wrinkles smooth out.

When is the treatment unsuitable?
We may advise that treatment should not be under-taken is you suffer from skins conditions such as active eczema or psoriasis, or have suffered an injury or trauma to the part of the body that you wish to have treated. If you have a serious health condition, such as cancer, we may also advise you to avoid Aesthetic Homeo-Mesotherapy.

How long time does it take?
The standard protocol consists of 1 session a week for 12-18 weeks (usually, the first results are clearly visible after the 3rd session). To keep the results under control, 1 session every month or 2 months is required.

What are the results of clinical trials?
Clinical trials have been performed from 1998 up to 2003. The trials included 578 females (aged between 35 and 75) and 103 males (between 40 and 70). The participants were applied linear infiltration on the area of wrinkles by means of mesotherapeutic technique. The treatment course consisted of 8 sessions, one session a week.

For some patients the treatment was continued as follows: 1 session a month for 2-3 months. The results were evaluated before and after the program by means of subjective classification of the visual and tactile characteristics of the wrinkles and the slackening of the face and neck tissues. A mild reaction to the treatment was observed in 20 cases (3%) with slight erythema in the injection site. Erythema disappeared after few minutes.

MADE® is proven to be a highly effective means with a high level of tolerability and suitable for all types of wrinkles and relaxed skin. The best results were observed in female patients aged of 30-50.

What is GUNA® COLLAGEN?
It is a natural homeopathic medication with an application similar to MADE®. It has one ingredient – collagen that is homeopathically treated. The medication is usually applied together with MADE® during each session in order to obtain more long-lasting results. It could be used also for local treatment of skin aging.
