Hey Guys!

 

As you all have seen i was visiting Gran Canaria last week for a press trip with several Hotel & Spa organisations. You could actually say that i was on a beauty trip for men. Which includes massages, wellness treatmens and awesome diners! But there was also on visit to an organisation that i wanted to highlight on my blog, my visit to Hospitales San Roque in Las Palmas. San Roque Hospital in Las Palmas is located in the district of Vegueta, is the leading health center on Gran Canaria. With a history of spanning back nearly a century, the hospital offers its experience serving the community of Las Palmas combined with modern facilities and state-of-the-art technology! Making it one of the best and modern hospitals on this island.

One thing that i noticed during my tour through the Hospital is that it is actually devided on several buildings on 15,000 square meter which makes it like a small village. So after my tour it was time to meet my doctor for the day and have a little talk about the Hospital itselve and the treatments that i was planning to do. I was introduced to DR Jaime Ospina Molina. Honestly one of the best guys i ever met on professional and private level.

Dr Jaime Ospina Molina is specialized in:

Personalized cosmetics and dermopharmacy

Correcting lines and wrinkles

Radio frequency combined with mesotherapy

Correcting lines and wrinkles

San Roque offers a wide range of non surigical treatments which are safe and have no risks 🙂

 

After talking with my doctor it was time for a skin analysis of my face, to be honest my face was kind of red from the sun that i took the day before my visit. So i had to tell my doctor this. After some seconds he asked me if i ever thought of Botox. My first thought was well but on a natural way. So this was just a botox to relax my nerves in my jaw and forehead. ( Has a result for 6 months and has no risks) Just be honest and always tell your medical history before doing it. Such as allergies that you deal with, this is important to prevent an allergic reaction to botox.

 

The other treatment that was offered was the Radio frequency combined with mesotherapy

 

This novel technique re-hydrates the skin and restores the elasticity lost with aging.  It involves infiltrating hyalouronic acid in the skin along with a multivitamin complex.  With this treatment we quickly and safely obtain deep hydration, producing smoother, brighter skin. Moreover, after several treatments, the method increases the activity of fibroblasts, providing a healthy, fresh and youthful appearance. Honestly it was a facial mask for 20 minutes and my skin was on it’s best afterwards! 🙂

Fractional Laser

Wrinkle removal and skin resurfacing rejuvenation using a laser is an accurate and effective method that produces long-lasting results.  The CO2 laser precisely and uniformly removes the sourface of the skin, layer by layer, making it possible to clearly define and select the desired depth of resurfacing (a tool of vital importance when it comes to treating wrinkles and other skin conditions such as acne scars, crow’s feet, etc.).  CO2 is the most effective ablative resurfacing method. But i was not able to catch sun after this unfortunately 🙁

 

I think the whole experience in general was very positive to me! I got to know the medical world a little bit more and got suprised by what there actually is out there on te market. People always asume that Botox is the only solution for a never ending youth. But there is more and it doesnt has to be done with an injection. But as my age is 25 and you want to prevent wrinkles or other skin conditions you have to start with these treatments when you are fully comfortable and want to prevent deeper skin wrinkles in the future.
