The influence of mental factors on disturbances in the circadian rhythm of blood pressure

dr hab. n. med. Krzysztof Małyszczak, prof. UMW, dr hab. n. med. Anna Janocha

Key words:
monitoring, blood pressure, circadian variation, dipper, non-dipper, anxiety disorders, hypertension

Blood pressure naturally fluctuates throughout the day, being higher during the day and lower during sleep. On average, the nocturnal fall in blood pressure is 10%–20% of the pressure during the day. In some cases, the nocturnal fall is reduced or absent, such individuals are referred to as „non-dippers”. It is estimated that the population of non-dippers with hypertension account for approximately 30%. Non-dippers have a higher risk of developing cardiovascular disease than „dippers”, regardless of whether the blood pressure measured during the day was normal or elevated. Disturbances in the circadian rhythm of blood pressure have been found in various anxiety disorders, especially in patients with panic disorder.

The effect of low temperatures on cellulite reduction

lic. Wołczańska Anna, dr hab. Aneta Teległów, prof. AWF**

Key words:
cellulite, cryogenic temperatures, cryolipolysis

The aim of the study was to evaluate the effect of low temperatures on cellulite reduction, on
the basis of the available literature. When preparing the paper, Polish and international literature was analysed, found by using the PubMed, Google Scholar, and ResearchGate search engines, as well as visiting the official website of the Kosmetologia Estetyczna (Aesthetic Cosmetology) journal.

The relationship between the way low temperatures affect the human body and the mechanisms leading to cellulite formation suggests that cryogenic temperatures can be effectively applied to address this condition. Exposing fat tissue to low temperatures has a favourable impact on cellulite reduction. The appearance of the skin also improves. Cryolipolysis is a new technology that continues to develop and gains in popularity.

dr n. med. Agnieszka Surowiecka

Key words
: barbed threads, dermal fillers, autologous cell therapy, lipotransfer, hyaluronic acid

Age-related changes in the midface result from skin thinning, loss of volume in fat compartments, loosening of the facial ligaments, and bone resorption. To achieve satisfactory rejuvenation of the midface, the aesthetic practitioner needs to compensate for all of these factors. Presently, there is no single restoration technique that would address all aspects of aging. That is why a combined protocol should be implemented. Since 2019, all patients of the Clinic have been offered a combined protocol, or a step-up approach known as the “beauty-ladder”, as a means of improving the appearance of their midface.

The protocol commences with the use of biostimulators to improve the quality of the skin, followed by volume loss restoration and tissue elevation at the subsequent sessions. Improvement in overall appearance was evaluated according to the patient’s satisfaction, reported on a Likert-type scale. 75% of the patients were very satisfied with the outcome, and 25% were satisfied.

The “beauty-ladder” is a personalized protocol that allows to achieve complete rejuvenation of the middle face. A combination of different techniques and levels of restoration is necessary to achieve a satisfactory result.
