Sandra Alavaa specialist in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and professor of the master’s degree in aesthetic medicine, head of the Olympia Body Aesthetics Unit, affirms that she has the more innovative and individualized techniques for each patient, offering solutions for the different alterations associated with aging such as wrinkles, alterations in the tone/texture of the skin and flaccidity.
Cellulitis or edematous panniculopathy
The term cellulite describes an aesthetic alteration of the hypodermis characterized by interstitial edema and an increase in fatty tissue. Cellulite is defined as a local tissue metabolism disorder subcutaneous cell, a worldwide aesthetic problem that affects, regardless of its weight, the 90 percent of women, appearing after puberty. According to Sandra Álava, among the triggering factors are the hormonal factors, vascular factors, accumulation of toxins, genetic factors, race and sex. “At Olympia we address it comprehensively with Indiba Radiofrequencycombined with body mesotherapy sessions with products that obtain very good results”, asserts Sandra Álava.
Localized fat or subcutaneous fat
As the specialist explains, subcutaneous fat is the non-visceral fat which is located just below the skin in a region called the hypodermis. Subcutaneous fat is distributed differently depending on sex. In men, adipose tissue is more prominent in the nape, deltoids, triceps, lumbosacral region, and buttocks, and tends to have additional fat accumulation in the anterior abdominal wall. In women, the area of the breasts, buttocks, epitrochanteric region and the lateral and anterior areas of the thighs. “The treatment we use here is called intralipotherapy, which consists of injecting deoxycholic acid (a fully biocompatible aqueous solution), in combination with the coolsculpting laser, which freezes localized fatty tissue,” says Sandra Álava.
Body skin flaccidity
Body flaccidity is the consequence of the loss of tone and elasticity of the dermis. According to Álava, it is due to physiological changes that affect the structure of the dermis and the fibrous septa of the subcutaneous cellular tissue. Body flaccidity appears when the skin loses its plump and smooth appearance. It begins to manifest from the age of 40. “At Olympia we treat it with therapeutic procedures, radiofrequency equipment, polylactic acid or polydioxanone tensor threads to redensify and improve skin quality,” says Álava Rabasa.
