Elisabetta Canalis makes no secret of helping herself to the latest medical aesthetic protocols. A natural beauty, as the photos from when she was the young and seductive brunette showgirl on Striscia la notizia attest, the Sardinian showgirl and model celebrated her 44th birthday on 12 September. And as any woman of her age knows, it is precisely at this age that the skin of the face and body begins to show the first, physiological signs of sagging, starting with skin slackness and loss of firmness and turgidity. To combat these imperfections of age, Elisabetta Canalis, who is currently in Milan, decided to make a pit stop at her trusted Italian beauty doctor, Dr Carlo Borriello, maxillo-facial surgeon at Medical Beauty Spot.
The non-invasive anti-aging facial treatment chosen by Elisabetta Canalis
Elisabetta Canalis decided to try the new Sofwave facial protocol. Dr Borriello, who performed the procedure, explains: 'The treatment, suitable for all skin types and of the latest generation, uses intelligent Superb (Synchronous Ultrasound Parallel Beam) technology. The handpiece emits high-intensity, high-frequency energy, creating controlled, stretched and directional thermal coagulation in the dermis. This results in targeted skin tightening along the direction of facial wrinkles. A skin tightening procedure that involves the use of an anaesthetic cream, with the advantage of no post-treatment care. Sofwave triggers the production of new collagen and elastin, which, as is well known, begin to decline after the age of 20. The heating of the dermal tissue induces the production and remodelling of collagen in the optimal direction, resulting in a natural, uplifting effect for a long-lasting lifting effect. We will be hearing a lot about it in the coming months,' assures the Sardinian showgirl's trusted doctor.
