Perigenital Warts – Laser Treatment

duotone-6-2-1514908

Warts are skin lesions caused by the human papillomavirus. Their removal is not easy since warts have their own blood supply system which generates abundant bleeding. Additionally, it compromises nerve endings, causing great pain.

Warts are contagious, the patient suffers from self-infection and in turn can infect other people. Individuals with a deficiency in the immune system are more prone to contract this disease. Depending on the serotype of the virus, the affected area is different (hands, face, feet, anus-genitalia, etc).

Treatment:

Conventional treatments are based on local tissue destruction. At the Hoogstra Center we treat warts with the Erbium Lotus II Laser. The Lotus impacts the wart at high speed, causing no pain for the patient or damage to neighboring tissues. It does not leave scars. Large warts are generally removed in more than one session. After each session, no special care is required and the patient immediately returns to activity.

Skin tightening without surgery - Radiesse

Device description: The RADIESSE injectable implant is a sterile, non-pyrogenic, semisolid, cohesive implant, the main component of which is synthetic calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) suspended in a sterile water-based carrier gel for injection, glycerin and sodium carboxymethylcellulose

Radiesse is a Lifting without surgery

It acts immediately, restoring the natural volume to your face, also achieving a definition in your facial contour, giving it a very youthful appearance.

Radiesse is an injectable dermal filler that temporarily adds volume to help smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and gives an immediate lift and firming effect on the skin. Once injected, Radiesse® directly provides the volume and lift necessary to decrease the signs of aging due to the calcium and gel-based microspheres that comprise the product. Both the gel and the microspheres are completely broken down by the body over time.

What does the treatment consist of?

Radiesse fillers are made using two techniques depending on the results that the professional intends to obtain. As usual a single session of about 30 minutes will suffice.

The treatment can be carried out by water technique or cannula techniqueThe latter is usually used to treat facial flaccidity by stimulating collagen, and the needle technique will be used to increase volume, for example on the cheekbones or chin.

As we have said previously, for the realization of some treatments it is necessary to combine these two techniques.

Radiesse - A COLLAGEN stimulator

In addition to an immediate filler effect, Radiesse®'s high-quality ingredients stimulate the skin's natural collagen synthesis. Thanks to the collagen-inducing effect of Radiesse®, the skin recovers its youthful rigidity and elasticity.

What results can I get with Radiesse?

Radiesse can provide various effects depending on the technique, the amount of product we use and of course the anatomy of each patient.

  1. Facelift without surgery
  2. Wrinkle correction providing volume.
  3. Smoothing of wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth, including nasolabial folds.
  4. Cheek augmentation
  5. Chin augmentation
  6. Mandibular delimitation
  7. Conceal dewlap by vector augmentation
  8. Improve skin quality thanks to collagen stimulation

Shortening of the labia majora

Shortening of the vaginal labia majora is a procedure intended to reduce the length of the labia majora.

Patients who request a reduction of the labia majora do so for the following reasons.

  • Aesthetic, the labia majora are very long and hang.
  • They report discomfort to exercise.

The lengthening of the labia majora is a normal process that occurs over the years, just as the earlobes, the lips of the face lengthen and the nose descends or the nasal tip descends, the same process undergoes the lips older than the vagina.

Surgery of the vaginal labia majora is a procedure that is performed with local anesthesia and sedation.

It has the benefits that improves the aesthetics of the lips and also allows to reduce the vaginal diameter that is enlarged by the weakening of the muscular structures and childbirth.

Postoperative

Generally the scar is imperceptible. The suture is made with absorbable material which avoids the need to remove the stitches.

Generally the patient takes a week off to reduce edema and discomfort. The usual thing is to prescribe antibiotics and anti-inflammatories, cold packs in the region help a lot.

Avoid using tampons and having sex the first 4 to 6 weeks after treatment.

Dr. Ricardo Hoogstra performs the Plastic Surgery of the labia majora using Laser technology.

The expected result is a reduction of the skin of the lips, a tightening effect and a reduction of the vaginal diameter, in cases where this is also sought.

If not, work only on the labia majora.
