Mens sana in corpore sano.The phrase comes from Satire X of the Roman poet Juvenal (usually translated as “a healthy mind in a healthy body”). The message is still powerful and can be applied nowadays, in a society where the good physical condition for a longer and better quality of life is increasingly more valued. Today, feeling good with oneself implies feeling good physically and mentally, and such an achievement may have positive effects on our self-esteem, regardless of age or gender. At Vithas Xanit International we are aware of the importance of looking ad feeling well, and for that reason, we offer our patients an aesthetic medicine of the highest quality, highlighting the doctor-patient closeness, personalised attention and the cutting-edge technology used in all individual cases.

All cutting-edge techniques and methods we offer for improving patients’ physical appearance inevitably will have a positive effect on their self-esteem, subsequently improving their inter-personal relationships. It is only natural to like to look good. However, in cases when certain aspects of our physical appearance, either congenital anomalies or those acquired over the years, are making us unhappy and with low self-esteem, aesthetic treatment is, in many cases, a way to find the desired solution.

Such operations and treatments must always be carried out by trained and board-certified specialists who meet all medical requirements. Dr Pilar Gómez Jorquera, a specialist in the area of aesthetic medicine, explains that “what sets us apart at Vithas Xanit International is that we have in a place a complete team composed of aesthetic doctors and dermatologists”. The specialist also adds that “we have a multidisciplinary team to achieve better diagnoses, together with high-quality products and appliances we use”.

Gómez Jorquera explains that Aesthetic Medicine Department at Vithas Xanit International carries out a wide range of treatments, highlighting “hyaluronic acid fillers” offering faster results, “since the volume obtained is immediate, although for the definitive result takes about two weeks, once possible inflammation and subsequent water retention are reduced.” Among the most demanded interventions aesthetic expert highlights that “there are several”, and one of them is “the use of botulinum toxin to relax the musculature of the upper third face and reduce expression wrinkles, further to preventing them”. More generally, the specialist says that “aesthetic medicine today seeks the best way to achieve maximum naturalness by improving the physical aspect”.

And who would be the person to advise us, from the aesthetic point of view, on the right type of treatment for us?  The specialist is clear: The doctor “who is going to treat you is best suited to advise on the most suitable type of treatment, depending on the patient’s needs or aspirations”, stressing that sometimes the support of a psychologist or psychologist may also be helpful.

As in any type of treatment, once it is performed, it is recommended for the person to maintain a good diet and follow healthy lifestyle habits. Also, it is essential to have “a good medical history to assess possible contraindications”, says Dr Gómez Jorquera.

Safety and optimal results are key at Vithas Xanit International.
