Biological aging or “senescence” is the gradual deterioration of our bodily functions. Aging affects our organs, tissues and cells and all of our organs begin to lose some function. Changes to the exterior, our outward physical appearance, are often the most obvious.
Older skin is less elastic and thinner and wrinkles are one of the first classic signs of aging. Factors that impact the rate at which our body ages include; genetics, pollution, diet, exercise, smoking, and alcohol. Although aging is inevitable, looking old is not. Anti-aging treatments at Dr. Cárdenas Aesthetic Medical Center as well as a balanced diet and regular exercise can help slow the signs and symptoms of aging.

Mesotherapy is not a surgical treatment. Mesotherapy is a series of injections to introduce vitamins, plant extracts or other medications into the middle layer of skin, fat or tissue. Mesotherapy reduces the appearance of cellulite and improves the quality of skin by making the skin both firmer and smoother. It is a simple and relatively painless procedure, with no adverse side effects. Mesotherapy does not require anesthesia. The patient lies quietly on a bed while the physician uses tiny, thin needles to create a small puncture allowing the solution to enter the body. The solution injected will be determined by the physician and will depend on the individual patient’s goals
Through micro-injections into the facial muscles, Botox is a safe and effective method for treating the creases between our eyes, around our eyes, and on our forehead. Botox is a brand name for the botulinum toxin. Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles causing paralysis and making the wrinkles relax and soften. Patients have a happier, more relaxed and more youthful appearance. The effects last for three months requiring retreatment every 12-14 weeks to maintain lasting results.
Lasers for anti-aging treatments are some of the few tools that can utilize light energy to create positive change within our skin and reverse the signs of aging. Fractional or carbon dioxide (CO2) lasers are one of the latest advances in non-surgical skin rejuvenation treatments.
Fractional CO2 lasers are an excellent choice for treating textural changes from sun damage (including precancerous growths), wrinkles (including crows-feet), loose skin, dull tone, and thinned collagen layers of the face, neck and chest. This treatment reduces wrinkles, eliminates sagging, and removes sun damage.
