After the summer, correct facial hydration is essential to maintain health and beauty of the skin, prevent skin diseases and premature aging.

Why is moisturize our skin?

The Aesthetic Medicine recommends using sunscreen with a high protection factor daily, replacing the application every time if exposed directly to the sun on the beach. The stratum corneum is the most superficial layer of the epidermis and is in contact with the outside. This layer has the function of protecting the skin from dehydration and external aggressions (solar radiation, temperature swings, chlorine, etc.). For this natural barrier performed their duties properly needs to retain between 10% and 15% water. If changes in the water content of the stratum corneum, the skin becomes dehydrated, presenting the following symptoms:

  • More prone to sunburn.
  • Dryness, peeling, irritation.
  • Photoaging
  • Look dull skin.


For these reasons, we propose the following tips and medical-aesthetic treatments:

  • Cosmetics: increase the hydration is recommended creams that keep the water level sufficient, at least 2 times a day.
  • Balanced Diet: Diet may provide a good supply of vitamins and minerals that help maintain skin health. Some substances, such as omega 3 fatty acids and beta carotene, protect and prepare the skin against sun exposure. Fruit and vegetables are good sources of vitamins and minerals with high antioxidant power.
  • Aesthetic Medicine treatments: facial Mesotherapy 4-5 sessions as shock treatment, then a maintenance every 4 months.
  • Daily sunscreen.


Mesotherapy Facial involves infiltration of small amounts of nutritional, moisturizing and stimulating substances collagen and hyaluronic acid uncrosslinked (free volume), vitamins and minerals, directly in the dermis, so that the products used act quickly in our skin.

Hyaluronic acid molecules are able to absorb up to 1000 times its weight in water, so that an effect of cohesion support and water retention, which keeps the skin smooth and moisturized. Also stimulates the synthesis of collagen and elastin and stops the effect of free radicals.

The infiltrated vitamins offer a high level of protection against sun exposure and act as potent antioxidants. Organic silicon is the constitutional substance of collagen and stimulates cell division and metabolism. It inhibits the formation of free radicals and regenerating the connective tissue.

The procedure lasts about 30 minutes. After the session, the patient can resume normal activity. It is a treatment that apply in addition to almost all our rejuvenation therapies.
