If the parallels were not so effective they would not be worth talking about
Since the late XX century the status of aesthetic medicine has been undergoing great changes: right before our very eyes it is turning from the particular applied discipline into a self-sufficient scientifically-based field of medicine. New technologies are being implemented into the field of aesthetic medicine extremely fast using the factors of various levels of aggressiveness influencing the soft tissues. However, the issues concerning preventive treatment of complications are still important, first and foremost, the development of coarse cicatrization while applying invasive procedures, the enhancement of skin restoration and the rehabilitation period reduction. Inotherwords, theissuesofwoundhealing.
Thus, two technologies, two results have met in the context of clinical medicine and subsequent application.
As our time and the time of our youth quickly flies by so the modern technologies develop further increasing their efficiency. In NEO-Clinic the whole family of the Lumenis lasersis employed by the highly skilled doctors to preserve the patients’ health and beauty. However, the significant skin aging, fine lines and deep wrinkles, enlarged pores, hyperpigmentation, scars and cicatrices – these are the problems which cosmetologists constantly face and which are effectively eliminated with the help of the UltraPulse laser due to the ultra-fine and intense pulse. This laser forms narrow and at the same time deep ablation areas in contrast to other lasers. In this case it is referred to the fractional thermolysis the clinical performance of which is based on the mechanism of controlled tissue damage and its subsequent restoration.
The procedure is prescribed to the patients with:
fine lines and deep wrinkles;
significant skin aging;
scars and cicatrices.
The clinical practice convinces that the wound healing remedies which a cosmetologist has at his/her disposal improve the prognosis for the tissue restoration though do not always give the expected result, and sometimes cause the patients’ physical discomfort, restrict their social activities, and frequently result in the restricted duty. It is vital not only to heal the wound quickly, but to do it right from the aesthetic point of view as well as to avoid cicatrization.
Just after the procedure of fractional thermolysis the patients wish to avoid a long-term period of rehabilitation in order to stay in the course of their active social life. The doctors, for their part, consider it important to manage the wound healing process to prevent the skin from cicatrization and infectious complications. That is why after such a serious aesthetic procedure it is vital to use the medication which guarantees scarless wound healing.
Cellgel meets the requirements for the rehabilitation period after the fractional thermolysis effectively reducing inflammation and improving the patients’ quality of life.
To a considerable extent the success of a wound healing process depends on the applied medications of local action. However, they are frequently prescribed in an empirical way, in this case the frequency of complications may reach 70%. This choice is based on the classical dermatological approach to the wound therapy – to close the tissue defect as soon as possible, by all means, including formation of the cicatrical tissue. Following the above statements various kinds of external therapy are applied: bactericidal agents, antiseptic agents, antibacterial agents, corticosteroids and dosage forms of reparative agents. As the basic elements of the wound development are explained from the standpoint of abscure inveterate autoimmune pathology all currently available therapeutic measures are reduced to the immunosuppressive ones, in other words to the application of steroid drugs. In my opinion it is unacceptable as when applying any corticosteroid a constant skin microvascular spasm is formed in the wound focus which results in the tissue metabolism disorder in the damaged area.
A special group is represented by the reparative agents which accelerate the natural processes of epithelialization: the patient’s own epidermis is the best wound cover, and it contributes the most to its healing free of cicatrization. But the epithelialization rates are low when applying reparative agents, in particular it averages 30 days when using Solcoseryl. Thus, the problem of developing new highly-efficient methods of reparation is quite urgent.
What problems should be solved by the medication which provides normal wound healing? With the knowledge of pathogenesis of wound healing and pathological cicatrization it is not difficult to answer this question: such medication should provide acceleration of healing of the damaged area, stimulation of the skin reparative potencies, preventive treatment of recurrent infectious diseases and serious complications connected with cicatrization. It is much more difficult to find this medication, the research is carried out in different fields. Our field of research is directly connected with cellular technologies. In the course of our research we based on the well-known fact: the phase of epithelialization always follows the phase of formation of new granular connective tissue – granulation tissue. This was the start of the working hypothesis on the possible improvement of the wound healing process if the stimulation of the skin reparative capabilities caused by some local damage (foe example, skin care procedures) would be enhanced due to additional application of the substance which predictably influences the mechanism of the granulation tissue formation. When choosing the basis for the medication we proceeded from the assumption that if we take a naturally occurring gel-forming substance as the basis this will help us avoid skin irritation and cicatrical contraction of the wound and reduce sensation of pain.
Thus, Cellgel is the product that meets all the requirements to the wound healing. One layer of the gel should be applied straight after the laser treatment of skin, and then on the laser treated skin area 2-3 times a day during 3-4 days. Before application the skin should be cleaned from the previous layer, dead cells, possible blood and lymph discharge with cotton buds wet with thermal water or soft inert tonic. It is vital not to use tonics containing alcohol, acids and other active agents for cleaning the laser treated skin area. Application of Cellgel is unnecessary during the period of skin scaling.
After the very first application of gel we get the reduction of skin redness and edema. The healing period will be more comfortable and will be reduced by 2-3 times. This will make it possible to avoid cicatrization and infectious complications.
