It works by counteracting the action of the mimic muscles responsible for the appearance of specific wrinkles on the face (frontal, between the eyebrows and around the eyes), by blocking the transmission between the nerve fiber and the muscle cell.
The use of botulinum toxin in aesthetic medicine is authorized by the American FDA and European bodies, thanks to the absolute harmlessness of the drug and the wide guaranteed safety margin.
The procedure is simple, of short duration, does not require any particular diagnostic tests and in the end the patient can resume his activities without any restrictions.
SOFT SURGERY: PLEXER (LIFTING)
The Plexer is an instrument patented by Dr. Giorgio Fippi with which it is possible to perform non-ablative surgery (non-surgical lifting).
This definition implies that no scalpel incision or sutures are applied to the patient’s skin. The Plexer (abbreviation for plasma exeresis) in fact acts by determining a sublimation of the skin tissue or the direct passage from the solid to the gaseous state of the skin.
The Plexer is particularly suitable for Non-Ablative Blepharoplasty.
Instead of removing the excess skin, in the Plexer treatment small spots of 500 microns are made, spaced apart, on the surface of the eyelid skin following the lines of the skin folds. The electric arc that hits the dermal surface eliminates the corneocytes by sublimation, causing a shortening of the excess skin but retaining its perfect plasticity even immediately after surgery.
Through the use of the Plexer it is possible to practice a series of face and body beauty treatments:
- Non-surgical lifting;
- Treatment of expression lines and wrinkles;
- Elimination of skin spots and hyperkeratosis;
- Removal of xanthelasma;
- Removal of benign growths;
- Treatment of active acne and post-acne and post-traumatic scars;
- Removal of keloids and hypertrophic scars;
Elimination of tattoos
More than a century ago the current scientific medicine was born and developed, in a cultural context dominated by positive rationality with, in the background, an industrial revolution, the rise of the bourgeoisie in a radically rethought society, a sick man as a body to be treated clinically.
Today, that rationality tends to be rethought in many aspects, pushing forward a thought more open to the complexity of the world, a science more willing to dialogue with different kinds of knowledge, within a society that some call postmodern, others post-industrial, others still liquid. more and more complex, varied, interconnected like a gigantic network.
In it, the sick man is no longer a clinical object, but a subject who claims the right and the ability to access all the scientific proposals available for health and well-being purposes, not just to heal from diseases.
Today scientific medicine tends more frequently to be extended, almost by analogy, to issues that are completely different from the canonical pathological definitions. For years a process has been underway for which, with the same medical rationality, its applications and the ‘objects’ of health change, in the areas of lifestyles, physical activity, beauty, efficiency and so on. .
