Frequently Asked Questions
Morphological medicine is suitable for anyone wishing to improve the body appearance, although some conditions must be met before starting treatment. A medical questionnaire is necessary to exclude any contraindication to treatment. In addition, it is important to determine in advance whether a chosen treatment will be able to achieve the expected results.
There are several possibilities for each indication. The choice of a treatment is guided by an eventual personal preference and the medical questionnaire. Also, different treatments can be combined to obtain better results.
Over time, the skin of the body becomes less firm and small, unsightly folds can appear. The neck, cleavage, hands, arms, stomach, thighs and knees are commonly affected. This loss of firmness is related to the progressive loss of collagen in the skin : as skin ages, production of collagen gradually decreases. As a result, many treatments targeting sagging skin aim to stimulate the collagen production to regain a firm and smooth skin appearance.
Possible treatments for sagging skin:
Cellulite is very common and affects the appearance of the skin making the body look loose, dimpled and bumpy at the same time. A healthy lifestyle is essential in the fight against cellulite but unfortunately, cellulite can persist despite a healthy diet and physical exercise. In fact, cellulite is generally a long-term issue and it is the severity of cellulite that varies depending on the lifestyle, weight and age of a person. The approach to fight cellulite is often a combination of different treatments along with a healthy lifestyle. Morphological medicine offers treatments that improve the visual appearance and quality of the skin, but are not weight-reduction treatments such as liposuction or cryolipolysis.
Possible treatments for cellulite:
Stretch marks or scars
Stretch marks and scars are the visible signs of permanent damage to the skin. Scars result from injuries at the surface of the skin while stretch marks occur below the skin surface, when skin fibers are overstretched and tear. Making these marks disappear completely is not possible, but some treatments can make them less visible and improve skin texture. The treatments are usually more invasive because the concern is not only skin quality, but also repair and regeneration of the skin.
Possible treatments for stretch marks and scars:
The usual areas are the neck, cleavage and hands because these areas are exposed to the sun and therefore suffer from accelerated skin aging, also known as “photo-aging.” Additionally, the common areas affected by sagging are the arms, stomach, thighs and knees while cellulite affects mostly the thighs and buttocks.
