Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally present in the skin that keeps it firm and toned. Over the years, our ability to produce hyaluronic acid decreases, contributing to the aged appearance.

The application of this substance makes it possible to treat static wrinkles, sagging, lack of volume and dehydration of the skin, or to make the lips a little more voluminous, quickly and safely, providing a natural and harmonious image. .


Botulinum toxin

Botulinum toxin (botox) acts as a neuromuscular blocker which causes a decrease in muscle contraction in the area of application.

It is used to correct and prevent the appearance or aggravation of facial expression lines. Its application is quite simple, fast and effective. To maintain the results, it is enough to reapply the substance at the indicated period – generally every six months.

ultraformer III

Ultraformer III

Is the newest and most innovative medical technology to treat sagging, wrinkles and localized body and facial fat, providing a non-surgical facelift. Within the first hour after the first session, small differences can already be noticed, however the treatment effects and improvements continue to evolve over 12 weeks.

The results are improved skin elasticity, rejuvenation and strengthening of the skin and correction of fine lines and signs of aging.


Collagen biostimulators

Collagen biostimulators are substances that stimulate the production of collagen when injected into certain layers of the skin. They are used to help improve skin firmness and support and to achieve facial contouring.

Among the benefits of collagen is its prolonged and progressive action to fight and prevent the appearance of signs of aging. The results are very natural and delicate.


01. What are the possible complications of aesthetic medicine?
We are talking more about post-injection reactions. The most common are bruising and swelling. They depend on the locations of the injection (eyelids, dark circles, lips, etc.) but also on the fragility of the patient's skin and the taking of certain medications. Complications (hematomas, infections, etc.) are rare or exceptional.
02. If I start the injections, will I have to continue?
If you stop performing injections, you return to the initial state. Patients who have had regular injections and who stop, however, benefit from an improvement because hyaluronic acid participates in the hydration and production of skin cells But, in general, the patients, content( e)s results, continue their maintenance care in order to maintain the aesthetic benefit obtained, or even to improve it.
03. What precautions are necessary before and after an injection?
It is essential to have well-cleansed, cleansed, pimple-free skin. Disinfection of the skin must be rigorous. You can take homeopathy to avoid the "bruises" and put anesthetic cream to prevent pain during the injection. After the injection it is useful to put ice, to use essential oils to reduce bruising and swelling. Sunscreen should be applied the next day for at least a few days. Sports activity must be stopped for 48 hours. Skin care, hammam, sauna are discussed depending on the type of injection but generally not recommended for 8 days. You must be informed before the intervention of the precautions to be taken and if necessary write them down. Do not forget to ask how long these precautions are necessary before and after an injection or other cosmetic procedure.
04. Can we benefit from aesthetic medicine treatments in the summer?
Yes. This presents no problem. We can practice botox, injections of hyaluronic acid, certain peels in summer. The only condition is to use sunscreen regularly after the treatment.
05. What areas of the body are affected by aesthetic medicine?
This aesthetic discipline focuses mainly on the treatment of facial defects: expression lines, sagging skin, etc. Aesthetic medicine techniques will therefore be able to be used on the neck, the oval of the face, the chin, the nose, the lips, the nasolabial folds, the forehead, the cheeks, the cheekbones, the valley of tears, the temples or the look again. In rarer cases, requests may also relate to hand rejuvenation.
06. At what age can we start?
There is not really a specific age to start using aesthetic medicine. What we can say is that the first indication is most certainly the appearance of the first signs of ageing, which is generally around the age of 30/35. Of course, this is an average age because everything depends on family heredity and the person's lifestyle. For example, in some families the nasolabial folds are marked very early, a person who smokes and / or who abuses the sun wrinkles more quickly than another who does not smoke and who protects himself from UV rays.

    Dental treatment in Portugal is cheaper because general operating costs, which include materials, laboratory costs and dentist fees, are lower in Portugal than in the UK. The same materials are sold by the brands themselves at lower prices in Portugal. Dentists do not charge as high fees as in other countries, so even our best dentists have a lower cost than dentists in other countries. We pay our dentists’ fees based on local prices (and based on their experience and quality), resulting in significant savings for our patients. Patients also often have to deal with very high laboratory costs. With Thecaretrip, a large part of the laboratory procedures are carried out in the dental clinic itself, which translates into lower prices for the patient, but with high quality, since the management of the process is carried out in-house, according to our high quality standards and by professionals we have selected. Some procedures must be carried out in rigorously selected external laboratories. Lower cost is often associated with lower quality. Wrongly. The dentists who work with us have been selected for their high level of specialization, the rigor and perfectionism with which they carry out their work and the attention paid to the patient. All the materials we use are certified and we only work with the best brands on the market.

    Our implants are made by Straumann, one of the most prestigious implant brands in the world. Our implants come with a lifetime guarantee that can be used in all the clinics around the world working with this brand.

    The first thing to do is speak to the Thecaretrip team and explain your emergency so that we can guide you. Most emergencies can be solved in your country by consulting a specialist in the field of implantology. You can also plan a visit to Portugal to solve the problem.

    Dental implants are placed under local anesthesia, which minimizes the risks associated with a surgical procedure which is in itself painless. After surgery, there may be some swelling and discomfort, which will be resolved with prescribed medication. Ideally, after the procedure, the patient should rest for at least a day. This delay is important because rest slows circulation, which reduces the risk of pain. The next day, the patient can resume his professional activities in moderation. Compliance with post-operative care is essential for a good recovery, among which we highlight the following points:

    • Cold and soft foods: yoghurt, ice cream, gelatin, cold soups, pureed vegetables, meat and fish, fruit smoothies;
    • No physical exercise;
    • Avoid exposure to the sun;
    • Sleep with the head slightly elevated;
    • Regular cleaning of the operated area;
    • Take prescribed medications as directed.

    2nd – Performing the surgery – Depending on the complexity of the treatment to be performed, it will be necessary to stay in Portugal for at least 1-2 nights. In complex cases requiring significant bone regeneration, it may be necessary to perform the operation in two phases, which increases the number of consultations during this phase.

    3rd – Preparation of molds for permanent crowns/prostheses. Consultation carried out 4-6 months after surgery, after bone healing. Depending on the number of treatments performed, it may be necessary to stay at the clinic between 1 hour and 1 full day. The fabrication of permanent crowns/prostheses takes a minimum of one week. You can choose to stay in Portugal and visit the country while waiting for the fabrication of the definitive crowns/prostheses or, depending on your case, come and leave the same day or spend only one night in our country.

    4th – Placement of crowns/definitive prostheses. The installation is faster, it only takes a few hours. If you have chosen to return home during the molding phase, you can come and leave the same day.
