MEDICINE

IN GOOD SHAPE BARBARA JERSCHINA, M.D. Ph.D., of the JERSCHINA Face & Body Clinic, an expert in aesthetic and anti-aging medicine as well as weight loss, talks to Danuta Bierzańska.

Does modern medicine keep up with human problems? Medicine is developing dynamically, and when it comes to my area of interest,which is aesthetic and anti-aging medicine, we are dealing with a major problem, namely that society is aging. The average life expectancy is 80 and we don’t want this long life to be associated with disease. We want to be in good shape, and looking good also matters. Taking care of yourself means that the body serves us longer in good condition. PM

All the more so that a sedentary lifestyle does nothing to keep you in shape… That's right. This lifestyle means that we do not burn calories, metabolism does not function as it should, the body does not get the right amount of oxygen, it is not "ventilated," there is insufficient blood supply to the joints, which are only nourished when we are physically active. I recommend regular physical activity of a recreational nature to my patients. I do not demand that they make too much effort – they should take regular walks, sometimes at a brisker pace. I give them the famous 5 to 10 thousand steps a day recommendation. Aging and the risk of diseases have been accelerated due to smog. In a nutshell, anti-aging medicine is actually preventive medicine. PM

What else can you do to prevent us from ageing too quickly? You need to drink plenty of water. It is well-known that sweetened and fizzy drinks heighten the risk of atherosclerosis and even PM

THE PATIENT SHOULD LOOK LIKE A YOUNGER VERSION OF THEMSELVES, NOT LIKE A NEW PERSON. pancreatic cancer, as recently discovered in the US. Healthy eating is important. We eat too much sugar and too much meat. We must constantly remember to eat vegetables - including legumes - which can be eaten without restrictions. Let's also try to eat freshly prepared meals. You stay in good shape when you feel good. We know that the body of a person who is positive, smiles a lot and is kind to others, releases more serotonin and endorphins. We also know that learning something new - another language or new skills - creates new synapses in the brain and has a very positive effect. What does aesthetic medicine do? It’s about prevention and treatment, also skin care. We know how to prevent skin from ageing and improve its condition. We offer all kinds of traditional treatments such as mesotherapy, a growing range of products, fillers based on hyaluronic acid, all kinds of peels, exfoliation and revitalisation treatments. PM

We have high-end equipment - the latest very effective technology, such as Light Pod Neo - a modern American laser which has a number of uses. It is perfect for closing vessels, discoloration and acne treatment, hair removal, as well as onychomycosis and psoriasis treatment. It is the first laser which helps to successfully manage psoriasis. It’s the only such laser in Poland. It is very safe but also very powerful. We also offer ultrasound lifting, face and body modelling, lymphatic drainage suits, ensuring pneumatic drainage plus magnetic field Ulthera and ultraformer III therapy.. What innovations are being introduced in the field of aesthetic medicine? The most innovative thing is an approach according to which a person should look natural and feel at ease. Our role is to make sure that we perform treatments in such a way that the effects are not conspicuous. The patient should look like a younger version of themselves, not like a new person. This requires a great deal of knowledge. We have many packages combining laser therapy with injections and high-tech cosmetology. We develop our own therapeutic programmes which allow you to achieve the best results by combining all available solutions. This modern approach was evident at the last Academy Awards ceremony. We know how old the actors are, so we can appreciate their appearance – it’s healthy, but not artificial. This trend came to America from Europe. And the effects of this holistic approach are • amazing. PM
