You are a very unusual aesthetic surgeon, and this is why we all love you. You have a very delicate approach towards aesthetics with total “less is more” philosophy. Can you tell us more about this approach
In my opinion ageing is a normal procedure and all of us must to understand that we become older In the ageing process our skin changes, but not only the skin also our muscles and our bones change in their structure and combat against all the changes are sometimes completely stupid because we can’t stop our physiological clock, we can slow it but not to block. I think we have to accept some wrinkles or some level of laxity in our skin, it’s normal, it’s natural and it could be also attractive.
Your background is not traditional aesthetics, and you have a very profound experience in the world of oncology. Please tell us more about how everything started and your transition to today
I have a background in the surgery of breast cancer, oncological and reconstructive surgery. During my period of specialisation in surgery I had the opportunity to work in a clinic of aesthetic medicine, it was incredible! In the morning I was in the hospital treating cancer and in the evening I was in the clinic treating wrinkles, in that period I learned to understand and respect the different concerns of each person.
You started your youtube channel as a hobby and you became a super influencer. In the era of influencers who speak of things they know nothing about you created a tribe that follows you unconditionally. How you managed this, tell us more about this journey
Yes, I started my youtube channel as a hobby, I started talking about aesthetic medicine, cosmetic surgery and cosmetics. When I talked about cosmetics, one of my passions since I was a teenager, I saw that the views of the videos were increasing, so I decided to focus my channel on the world of cosmetics. In my daily activity in my clinic I realize that people are very confused about cosmetic issues, they confuse ingredients, they confuse treatments, they don't know what to choose, how to apply them... so I decided to create an information channel, of education in a world of influencers where there is so much image but so little content, so I don't consider myself an influencer, I consider myself a disseminator of knowledge or experience.
So let’s speak about the most recent developments in the aesthetics medicine, what are the newest trends, or oldies but goodies to keep a naturally healthy, glowing and firm skin
Surely at this time the most interesting thing in aesthetic medicine are the treatments that stimulate the natural creation of collagen, these are techniques where by administering different active ingredients our skin reacts by creating collagen naturally and consequently the skin appears more strong, more elastic and with less flaccidity. These ingredients can be administered through small injections, or through techniques such as microneedling or laser. They can be cocktails of vitamins, amino acids, peptides, hyaluronic acid... or it can also be platelet-rich plasma, PRP, where a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient, centrifuged, and then the plasma full of growth factors is injected. growth that stimulate the natural creation of collagen. All these techniques can be stimulated even more by taking food supplements based on collagen or peptides or vitamins.
