The induction of collagen with microneedles is a minimally invasive technique that consists in the micro puncture of the skin, such as the nanoroller, which, when passed through the area to be treated, induces a natural production of collagen and elastin, effective for the treatment of various skin disorders, especially wrinkles, stretch marks and acne scars. The nanoroller is a pencil-type device whose tip has multiple needles, which facilitate the entry of nutrients and substances into deeper layers of the skin.

This cosmetic treatment is also used to treat skin blemishes (melasma), hair loss (alopecia) and aging marks (fine wrinkles). The nanoroller can be applied to various areas of the body and is a product for medical and professional use. The induction of collagen with microneedles with this device is painless, although it may generate some discomfort in the patient at the time of application.

Multiple sessions will be necessary for the results to begin to be noticed; the specialist will determine the number of sessions to be performed at the time of the consultation. It is a non-invasive procedure; the patient can work normally after a session with IPL.

Intense IPL light is a highly recommended aesthetic treatment to rejuvenate the skin. If you are looking for this procedure in Bogotá, Dr. Luis F. Gonzalez has the equipment and knowledge to assist you.
Diode Laser Hair Removal
The objective of the hair removal diode laser is the removal of hair by means of light energy with the aim of avoiding repeated hair removal for life with conventional techniques (cold wax, depilatory creams, tweezers).

This is a much more effective method than IPL or other laser treatments, since its wavelength is much longer; therefore, it penetrates deeper into the skin. It is ideal for people with dark skin or thick hair. The number of sessions that a patient will need to achieve total hair removal will be determined by the specialist in the consultation.

Like other laser hair removal devices, the diode laser works by emitting light that must be absorbed by the hair chromophore (melanin), so that the hairy matrix is loaded with stem cells and is responsible for the generation of the hair shaft (i.e. of the hair) are heated and destroyed by a phenomenon of protein denaturation.

Dr. Luis F. Gonzalez is specialized in cosmetic, clinical and surgical dermatology who knows this treatment perfectly.
Platelet-rich Plasma

By supplying platelet rich plasma to localized areas of the skin, scars, wounds or stretch marks can be treated, as well as improving the overall quality of the skin. It is mostly applied in patients between 40 and 50 years old.

A treatment session with platelet-rich plasma begins with the extraction of a small blood sample, between 5 to 10 cubic centimeters (the blood must always belong to the patient). Then, the sample is centrifuged for a few minutes, as required by the procedure, until it separates into two parts: one reddish (red blood cells) and another yellowish made up of platelets, the latter is removed to be applied to the areas of the skin that require treatment. Plasma can be applied to the scalp, neck, hands, face, among other areas of the body.

In general, four initial sessions are recommended, although already significant improvements in the skin can be noticed from the first one. The treatment is quick and practically painless, it does not require surgical interventions or pre and post operative.
Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in connective tissues or joints of the human body, although the vast majority resides in the skin; It is a major component of synovial fluid, a viscous fluid that works as a lubricant for the body. Thanks to its properties to attract and retain water, hyaluronic acid is used in cosmetic medicine for moisturizing and rejuvenating skin treatments.

With the passage of time, the production of hyaluronic acid decreases. As a consequence, the skin loses firmness, becomes flabby and wrinkled. However, thanks to advances in contemporary medicine, hyaluronic acid has been produced synthetically in the laboratory; This is stored in ampoules to be used as a treatment to fill and give volume to areas where depressions or sinks are found. This substance is injected into the area of the dermis that you want to correct; It is an excellent complement to other treatments such as botulinum toxin to rejuvenate and beautify the skin without resorting to surgical procedures.

Mole Resection
Mole Resection
Moles (nevi) are large accumulations of melanin in a very small area of the skin. Melanin is a dark pigment responsible for coloring the skin and hair, as well as protecting us from UV rays. The greater the presence of melanin, the darker the skin and hair, which means that people with dark complexions have higher concentrations of this pigment than those with light complexions. This does not mean that people with dark skin do not have moles, but rather that these spots on the skin are more evident in white people. They are called "moles" because in the past it was believed that the moon was responsible for its appearance, but today we know that these spots on the skin are the result of a process as natural as sweating.

Melanin is produced by cells called melanocytes, which are found in the basal layer of the epidermis and the hair follicle. When excessive melanin production occurs at a single point it gives rise to the mole. Many people are born moles, while others appear during their childhood and adolescence.

On average, all people have 10 to 40 moles all over their bodies, some are so small that they are difficult to see with the naked eye, but others are large, dark in color and even protrude from the skin. Some moles thicken over the years, but others disappear. Also, some moles may contain hair and others may not.

The best treatment to manage this pathology consists of surgery at the hands of specialist dermatologists.
