Dermatology is the branch of medicine that deals with the study of the skin and its pathologies.
The dermatology specialist deals with well-being and pathologies affecting the skin, hair, nails and mucosa.
It deals indiscriminately with subjects of all ages, from very young children up to the third age.
Pathologies most often treated by the dermatologist:
- Infections of the skin and subcutaneous tissue
- Bullous diseases (pemphigus, pemphigoid)
- Dermatitis (atopic dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, diaper dermatitis, etc.)
- Vitiligo and other pigmentation disorders (seborrheic keratosis, acanthosis nigricans)
- Papulosquamous disorders of the skin (psoriasis, porokeratosis, pityriasis, lichen planus)
- Some types of tumors
- Disorders affecting the skin appendages (nail disorders, alopecia, hair loss, hirsutism, acne, rosacea, follicular cysts, other hair follicle disorders)
The dermatological examination is the evaluation of the patient’s entire body skin and any associated symptoms.
It allows to check on the presence or absence of pathologies concerning to the skin. It can be arranged in advance or following the appearance of skin manifestations (such as spots, wheals, papules, vesicles or nevi).
In particular, the dermatological examination is necessary to diagnose pigmented skin diseases, allergological skin diseases and viral skin diseases.
The dermatologist performs a thorough exploration of the patient’s skin.
Mole mapping, also called a mole or nevi map, is a painless and harmless dermatological assessment that allows checking the pigmented lesions on the patient’s skin.
The mapping involves the entire skin surface and is aimed at the search for nevi formation and at monitoring, over time, any suspect moles, which show atypical features.
It is therefore an extremely precise medical procedure that emits energy in the form of ultrasounds focused at the chosen depths and at high intensity in order to induce thermal coagulation at different depths of the superficial and deep derma and in the adipose tissue. The coagulation thus induced promotes the formation of new collagen fibers. This results in a non-invasive Lifting effect and fat reduction.
The result of the Hifu treatment is face and neck non-invasive lifting and consists of skin toning and rejuvenation, with the redefining of the facial oval, removal of the double chin and lifting of sagging cheeks. There is also a reduction of nasogenian wrinkles and a volumetric increase in the zygomatic region with the uplifting of the eyebrow arch which gives an overall younger look.
Carboxytherapy is a medical treatment that consists of injecting carbon dioxide in gaseous form into the derma or subcutaneous tissue for therapeutic purposes.
Fights the signs of aging and the most hated skin blemishes.
Plexer-surgery allows “non-ablative surgery” namely with minimal invasiveness, thus affecting only the epidermis (the most superficial layer of the skin).
This is a “non-ablative” kind of technique: it treats different skin imperfections without the use of a scalpel.
Therefore, can be carried out operations such as:
- the small lifting of the face and body (for instance, extra skin at the root of the arms)
- periumbilical lifting – periumbilical stretch marks
- discoloration of the skin (spots)
The following can be removed without a scalpel and without scarring: seborrheic warts, pendulous fibroids, exuberant, post-traumatic scars, correction of post-acne scars, keloids, epidermal horns, ruby angiomas, nevi, xanthelasma, dyskeratosis, periumbilical stretch marks.
Perioral wrinkles (commonly called “bar code”), periocular wrinkles (“crow’s feet”) and frontal wrinkles can also be treated with the same technique.
The “Plexer-surgery” can certainly be defined as a “soft surgery” because it is performed without a scalpel “, without “stitching”, without “bruising” and without “hematomas”.
