Skin Imperfections

The skin is the biggest organ of the human body and probably the most complex. The skin has not only protective properties but also acts as “external brain” or antenna to the human body.

The Latin phrase: In Corpore Sano, Spiritus Sano”. Dr Georghy proverb: “In Derma Sano, Corpore Sano”

Translation: In Healthy Body, Healthy Mind. Dr Georghy believes that healthy skin is very important for a healthy mind.

Although you may not typically think of the skin as an organ, it is in fact made of tissues that work together as a single structure to perform unique and critical functions. The skin and its accessory structures make up the integumentary system, which provides the body with overall protection. The skin is made of multiple layers of cells and tissues, which are held to underlying structures by connective tissue ([link]). The deeper layer of skin is well vascularized (has numerous blood vessels). It also has numerous sensory, and autonomic and sympathetic nerve fibers ensuring communication to and from the brain.

The skin protects the rest of the body from the basic elements of nature such as wind, water, and UV sunlight. It acts as a protective barrier against water loss, due to the presence of layers of keratin and glycolipids in the stratum corneum. It also is the first line of defense against abrasive activity due to contact with grit, microbes, or harmful chemicals. Sweat excreted from sweat glands deters microbes from over-colonizing the skin surface by generating dermicidin, which has antibiotic properties.

TREATMENT CONCEPT: For best results, Dr Georghy uses multiple modalities. The treatments are combination of different technologies, such as Low Level Laser Stimulation Therapy (LLLrST), LED, Intensive Pulsed Light (IPL), Intensive Pulsed Heat (IPH), MicroNeedling, Platelets Rich Plasma (PRP), PhotoDynamic HyperThermia (PD HT), WEBER Medical Laser, Low Field Electro-Magnetic Therapy – WISHPro (the latest technology from Israel). 

Every person’s skin is different and every skin responds to treatments differently.
