The world of aesthetic medicine has advanced in leaps and bounds over the last couple of decades, and as patients grow more accustomed to products which help them manage the effects of aging and live life to the full there are more and more products and techniques which enable them to look and feel youthful without undergoing plastic surgery.
At Clínica Díaz Caparrós in Cartagena the fully qualified (and English-speaking) team offer a range of aesthetic treatments which fall into this category, including botox, injections of neruotoxins and dermal fillers and non-surgical facelifts. The techniques used are varied, but the intention is for treatment to be as non-intrusive as possible: in most cases the down time for patients is minimal or non-existent, and although local anaesthetics are used in some cases the preparatory phase is also easy and onvenient.
Furthermore, the treatments offered are not restricted to facelifts: alongside the facial treatments are others related to body contouring, cellulite, scar management and nutrition, and cosmetic and plastic surgery can also be performed at Clínica Díaz Caparrós.
The wide range of specialities among the team also make it possible to undertake dental treatment (both conventional and cosmetic), hair transplants and ear nose and throat treatment (including snoring and sleep apnea), as well as bringing to clients the most effective and unobtrusive state-of- the-art hearing aids.
This is medicine designed for patients who are generally in good health already: but being fit doesn’t mean you can’t feel any better! A combination of aesthetic medicine, odontology, cosmetic surgery and ear nose and throat treatments cannot reverse the aging process, but it can certainly help to cancel out some of the effects and increase the quality of life: to find out more contact Clínica Díaz Caparrós in the centre of Cartagena!
The Diaz Caparrós clinic is a privately run centre in the city of Cartagena which offers a range of services and treatments including aesthetic therapy, plastic surgery, dentistry and hearing impairment solutions.
The head of the clinic is Dr Félix Díaz Caparrós, who over a 25-year career has amassed a wealth of experience and has forged a commitment to offering patients complete and innovative solutions, all of which have gained the seal of approval of the Spanish Aesthetic Medicine Society (SEME).
Equipped with the very latest technological equipment, the team specializes above all in non-surgical facelifts, botox and filler treatments, plastic surgery, hearing aids and cosmetic dentistry, and all treatments can be financed in instalments to make them convenient and affordable as well as fully effective.
The staff at the clinic in the centre of Cartagena are all fully qualified, and their level of English is high, meaning that those whose Spanish may not be up to scratch can be sure that all of their questions and doubts will be answered.
Aesthetic medicine: Botox
In the field of aesthetic medicine one of the most common treatments consists of the use of Botox® in order to reduce lines and wrinkles on the forehead and frown lines and other on the face. All Botox® injections are given by the resident qualified and experienced cosmetic doctor at the clinic, who specialises in tailoring the strength of treatments to your individual needs.
The areas most commonly treated by Botox® include the chin, frown lines, forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, smoker’s lines (above the top lip), marionette lines (at the corners of the mouth) and bunny lines (at the top of the nose), and Botox® can also be used to achieve an eyebrow raise and to soften the jaw line.
Treatment prices at the Clínica Díaz Caparrós start at just 200 euros for one area, with discounted prices of 300 euros for two areas and 395 euros for three.
This is performed at Clinica Díaz Caparrós by using a minimally invasive injectable treatment called Juvederm Volite, which delivers hyaluronic acid directly into the skin in order to improve skin quality. The use of the unique patented VYCROSS®technology allows a combination of low and high molecular weight hyaluronic acid to deliver more natural results.
The skin’s natural levels of hyaluronic acid drop dramatically with age, but when the substance is delivered by means of Juvederm Volite it improves elasticity and helps to remove fine lines, as well as stimulating collagen production. Commonly treated areas include the face, hands, neck and décolletage.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, also known as The Vampire Facelift®, harnesses the body’s natural healing powers to stimulate new tissue growth and make skin appear healthier and more youthful.
PRP is created by taking a small amount of the patient’s blood and separating out the plasma, which is then injected into the area treated. Typically this might be around the eyes, the jaw line, the neck, the cheeks, the forehead, the naso-labial folds or the marionette lines, and the price for a single session at Clínica Díaz Caparrós is 350 euros (a full course of five is priced at 1,500 euros).
This treatment uses the latest in dermal filler technology to create a more youthful natural
look, reducing wrinkles and contours and creating volume while at the same time revitalizing the skin. Again the injectable gels are based on hyaluronic acid, and the effects are long-lasting although not permanent.
In the “8 Point Face Lift”, for example, filler is injected into key points of the face, redefining, and reshaping the mid and lower face to create a naturally youthful look. The treatment lasts only around 45 minutes and the results are visible immediately.
The Ellansé collagen booster, on the other hand, acts by stimulating collagen and the results can last up to five years: again they can be appreciated immediately.
Silhouette Soft non-surgical facelift
One of the most popular treatments at the Diaz Caparrós clinic is the Silhouette Soft®, a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment to lift the skin of the face, using polylactic acid. This substance has been used for many years in “resorbable” or dissolving sutures, and in this treatment is used as a “scaffolding” under the sin to lift sagging tissues.
The effects are immediate and natural-looking, and in the longer term the body’s lost collagenis restored. Recovery time is minimal and the treatment is appropriate for anyone over the age of 40.
Surgical procedures commonly carried out at the Clínica Díaz Caparrós include breast augmentations, reductions and uplifts, rhinoplasty, tummy tucks (Abdominoplasty),
liposuction, blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), otoplasty (outer ear surgery) and arm lift surgery.
Ear nose and throat treatments
The problems most commonly dealt with in this field at Clínica Díaz Caparrós include snoring, sleep apnea and sinusitis.
A full range of dental specialities at the Clínica Dïaz Caparrós includes children’s dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, teeth whitening, dental hygiene, implants, oral surgery, periodontics, endodntics and orthodontics.
Dr. Félix Díaz Caparrós has taught underwater medicine and hyperbaric studies at the Spanish navy diving school, and has also given courses at the University of Murcia: this expertise allows him to offer a variety of solutions to those with hearing problems, providing aids which ombine maximum efficiency with comfort and convenience for the user.
