Basic blood tests

Blood mirrors our health. Therefore, blood values are a key tool for diagnosis that can reveal a number of diseases and deficiency symptoms. Basic blood analysis provides data regarding – among other things – blood composition, kidney and liver functioning, metabolism, glycaemia and fats associated with cardiovascular risk. Nutritional imbalances and insufficient or excessive physical exercise can also be diagnosed by blood analysis.
Basic blood tests determine the following values:
Haemogram (blood count)
Urea and uric acid
Creatinine
Glucose
Transaminase and GGT (Gamma GT) enzymes
Triglycerides and cholesterol

Bioelectric check-up

The bioelectric check-up measures the body’s response to stressful stimuli. Electrodes are placed on single body areas to provide light, non-perceptible electrical impulses to check whether the body’s reaction is proportionate to such stimuli. An under- or overreaction to stimuli indicates the presence of some disorder within the body. The bioelectric check-up provides a wealth of valuable diagnostic information about, for example, energy levels, potential burnout risk, organ functioning and degree of acidity in the body. This test provides useful suggestions for a holistic, personalised therapeutic strategy which may include: food supplements, targeted exercise programmes and a tailored nutrition plan. A bioelectric check-up is especially recommended in cases of inflammatory conditions, allergies and intolerances, harmful effects of some substances, hyperacidity, environmental stress, stressful lifestyles, fatigue and loss of vitality.

Bioelectrical impedance analysis

Regular scales are unable to determine what percentages of muscles and adipose tissue make up a person’s body weight. Therefore, body composition is a more accurate indicator of a patient’s health condition than body weight alone. BIA (bioelectrical impedance analysis) is a globally-recognised method to measure the variables of body weight, in particular muscle mass, body fat and water balance. This kind of measurement also provides information on other important parameters, such as intra- and extracellular fluid content, bone mass (indicator of predisposition to osteoporosis) and the ratio between healthy and pathological body fat (abdominal fat), as well as concentration levels of various minerals and trace elements. Metabolism, stress levels and the body’s ability to burn oxygen and convert food into energy can also be measured by BIA.

Bioimpedancemetry with blood type diet

The bioelectrical impedancemetry is a non-invasive test that provides a number of important parameters such as body weight, muscle mass, body fat, hydration status, bone density and levels of mineral salts and glycogen, as well as oxidative stress. The test also provides a metabolic profile as the basis for a personalised nutrition plan, by helping to determine which foods are good for a patient’s metabolism and the optimal intake of fats, carbohydrates and proteins.

It is also possible to adjust the nutrition plan according to the patient’s blood type profile. Based on the notion that blood type influences a person’s chemistry and physiology, specific diets are recommended for the four different blood types A, B, AB, and O, which reflect the lifestyle and diet of our ancestors.

Buttock toning treatments

Aesthetic medicine offers a range of treatments to lift and tone the buttock area for a harmonious, youthful body:

  • Volumising filler with hyaluronic acid
  • Stone treatment to improve muscle tone
  • Endolift laser treatment to tighten the skin and reduce slackening
  • Thread lift for greater volume and a firmer skin
Cardiovascular profile blood tests

Cardiovascular diseases are a large umbrella that covers all the illnesses that affect the heart as well as all blood vessels, i.e. veins and arteries. These include, among others, hypertension, elevated blood lipids and cholesterol levels, diabetes, cardiac arrhythmia and stroke. Major cardiovascular risk factors include genetic predisposition and an unhealthy lifestyle. It is therefore paramount that patients suffering from cardiovascular disease adopt a balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle.

In addition to baseline blood analyses, the cardiovascular profile blood tests include:

  • Complement component C3
  • Serum iron
  • C-reactive protein
  • Glycosylated haemoglobin (HbA1c)
  • Lipoprotein
  • Homocysteine
  • Insulin resistance (HOMA)
  • Vitamin D
  • Electrolytes: sodium, potassium, chloride, calcium and magnesium
  • Urine analysis
Cavitation

Cavitation is an ultrasound body contouring treatment that significantly reduces localised fat deposits and cellulite. Ultrasonic waves destroy the adipose cell membrane, causing fat to be released and eliminated from the body through the lymphatic system. This non-invasive, pain-free procedure is especially indicated for the treatment of specific areas of concerns, such as legs (saddle bags), upper arms, abdomen, buttocks and waist. Cavitation is a gentle, non-surgical alternative to liposuction with results visible even after the first session. We recommend you combine the treatment with a balanced diet and exercise to maximise its benefits. 

Coeliac disease test

Since coeliac disease is usually manifes in non-specific symptoms such as headaches, general malaise, digestive disorders, insomnia and irritability, this condition can remain undetected for a long time. However, a simple blood test is sufficient to detect specific antibodies and diagnose coeliac disease. In addition, this test enables a differential diagnosis to be performed against gluten intolerance, which is not the same thing as coeliac disease despite causing similar symptoms.

Complete check-up

The complete check-up is a comprehensive series of tests including both diagnostic profiling and nutritional profiling. The aim is to create a holistic, personalised package of health-promoting measures by collecting as many parameters as possible.

Cryolipolysis

Cryolipolysis is an innovative body slimming treatment that reduces localised fat by exploiting the sensitiveness of fat cells to cold.
During this procedure, areas of concern are exposed to cold by means of special equipment, causing the fat cells to freeze and dissolve through the body’s natural processes. This method is especially effective for the treatment of localised fat in the abdomen, waist, male chest, upper arms, thighs, knees and buttocks.
Not only is cryolipolysis safe and gentle, it is also very effective with results visible after just one session.
Since the final results depend on the patient’s metabolism, we recommend following the session with tightening treatments or lymphatic drainage.

Food intolerance test

This test has been devised to detect allergic reactions to foods mediated by G-type antibodies (IgG, immunoglobulin G). Food intolerances are often hard to diagnose, as reactions can arise hours, sometimes even days after ingestion of the food allergen. The food intolerance test is performed by taking just one drop of blood from the patient’s finger.
The following signs and symptoms might indicate food intolerances: gastrointestinal disorders, overweight, skin conditions, neurological disorders such as headaches, migraine and nausea, respiratory disorders, mood swings and fatigue.

High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)

A form of cardiovascular training that aims to lose weight, improve cardiovascular capacity and general well-being. High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is based on a physical activity in which heart-rate exercises are alternated with low cardiac exercises.

I-LIPO Fat Reduction & Body Contouring

I-Lipo is a smart, non-surgical alternative to liposuction, developed for smoothing out cellulite, reducing body fat and shaping the body. The laser energy emitted by the I-Lipo device penetrates the fat cells and triggers a photochemical reaction that breaks down the stored fat, making it readily available for the body to transform into energy. The byproducts of this process are then eliminated by the lymph flow.
The I-Lipo system is painless and has no side effects. It can also be combined with other treatments such as shock wave therapy or mesotherapy to maximise results. However, since metabolism is involved in the process, it is advisable to follow it up with an appropriate exercise programme.

Iomet test for active cell nutrition

Developed by the Institute for Nutrition and Prevention in Lyon, France, this non-invasive test starts with a medical examination including a computerised analysis of the patient’s lifestyle: eating habits, environment, medical history and self-assessment of state of health. This enables possible health issues to be identified which, if left untreated, could lead to cellular damage. Based on test results, a tailored nutritional plan and personalised therapy are devised.

Lipodissolve with Aqualyx

Lipodissolve is a safe, non-surgical slimming treatment that consists of dissolving localised adipose tissue by injecting active ingredients directly into the fat deposits. Aqualyx is an approved compound solution that dissolves fat, which is then eliminated by the body’s natural metabolic processes. This non-invasive procedure ensures a visible reduction in fat deposits from the first session and is particularly recommended to treat localised fat on the upper arms, thighs, saddle bags, abdomen, waist, hips, buttocks and knees, as well as to treat gynaecomastia.

Mesotherapy for the treatment of cellulite

Mesotherapy can be used to treat cellulite. This procedure involves small amounts of individually combined active ingredients (vitamins, minerals, amino acids, circulation promoters, hyaluronic acid) being injected beneath the skin with the aim of improving leg health from both the functional and aesthetic perspectives. Mesotherapy is ideal for:

  • reducing cellulite and localised fat deposits
  • stimulating oxygen supply and microcirculation in peripheral tissues
  • toning up tissues and combating inflammation
Moxibustion

With a thousand-year old tradition, this treatment falls within the field of acupuncture and involves heating different body areas – mostly corresponding to acupuncture points – by burning a sprig of dried mugwort. As the heat penetrates deep into the tissues, it stimulates the energy flow (Qi). According to Chinese tradition, moxibustion can be used to treat diseases caused by internal or external cold (for example diarrhoea caused by an excess of cold foods in the former case and musculoskeletal pain in the latter). Besides musculoskeletal conditions, the practice of moxibustion can also help combat infections.

Nutritional profile

As a first step, a bioelectrical impedance analysis is performed to determine body composition. The resulting parameters are used to create a personalised nutrition plan, designed to ensure the correct intake of macronutrients (such as proteins, fats and carbohydrates) and micronutrients (such as vitamins, minerals and trace elements). Other important factors such as chronobiological aspects (i.e. the science of nutrition seen in the perspective of physiological body rhythms) as well as the correct combination and intake order of nutrients are also taken into account.

Overweight profile blood tests

This type of blood analysis helps the practitioner to identify the underlying causes of a patient’s overweight, for example by ruling out organic causes such as thyroid disorders, while also detecting any signs of weight-related conditions that might require treatment. Based on test results, your doctor will be able to choose the most appropriate treatment. Besides baseline blood analyses, the Overweight profile tests include:

  • Serum iron (iron levels in the blood) and ferritin (iron deposits)
  • C-reactive protein
  • Glycosylated haemoglobin (HbA1c)
  • Insulin
  • Lipoprotein
  • Homocysteine
  • Fibrinogen
  • Vitamin D
  • Electrolytes (sodium, potassium, chloride, calcium and magnesium)
  • Urine analysis
PPG Stress flow

Innovative test that allows an accurate evaluation of the nervous system and its influence on our well-being. Through specific respiratory biofeedback exercises it is possible to realign and to bring into coherence the nervous system and the heart rate, useful for improving physical psychic performance, nervous hunger, anxiety, panic attacks.

Shock wave therapy

Shock waves are short pulses of mechanical-acoustic energy transmitted through water or water-rich tissue. Shock wave therapy is gaining increasing popularity in the medical field, with a growing range of therapeutic applications that include aesthetic medical treatments.
This simple, effective procedure helps remove excess fat, tone up the body and tighten body tissue without any side effects.
The acoustic waves also reduce cellulite, improve skin elasticity and are suitable for the treatment of scar tissue. This therapy is especially recommended to treat the buttocks, arms, thighs and abdomen.

Skin firming

The latest trends in aesthetic medicine are shifting the focus to non-surgical treatments, with a number of alternatives to face lifting being developed over recent years that give the skin a healthier, fresher and more natural appearance. Below is an overview of the best modern methods.

For restoring volume and smoothing out wrinkles:
Fillers with hyaluronic acid
Thread lifts

For skin rejuvenation and stimulation of collagen- and elastin production:
Biolifting
Microneedling
Laser therapy
Endolift treatment
PRP (autohaemotherapy)
Ultherapy (ultrasonic lift)

Sound therapy for balance

This balance-restoring acoustic therapy consists of a personalised sound programme of 50 minute sessions for daily listening, to be repeated over several days. Not only does it have a soothing effect, it also contributes to restoring the PNEI (psycho-neuro-endocrine-immune) system: by replacing disharmonic cellular memory with harmonic sound frequencies, it enables dysfunctional emotional patterns to be overcome. This treatment is especially recommended in cases of anxiety, depression, insomnia and all stress-related neurovegetative disorders such as headache and dermatitis.

Stretch mark treatment

Stretch marks are red to silver-white scars that appear when the skin’s connective tissue is torn due to excessive stretching. Although stretch marks are usually associated with pregnancy, they can affect men as well as women and develop at any age, for example during puberty, menopause or in cases of rapid weight loss or gain.
We treat stretch marks by targeting the areas of concern with high-energy light pulses that activate the skin’s natural repair processes and stimulate the production of new collagen. As a result, the scars fade and become less evident.

Thyroid profile blood tests

The thyroid is the gland that regulates our metabolism. Reduced or increased production of thyroid hormones results in metabolic disorders with a number of signs and symptoms, including weight gain or loss, sensitivity to cold or heat, fatigue or hyperactivity. Besides baseline blood analyses, thyroid-specific values are also included in the Thyroid profile blood tests, namely:

  • TSH
  • FT3, FT4
  • Serum iron
  • Electrolytes (sodium, potassium, chloride, calcium and magnesium)
TOP profile blood tests

Our body functions are the result of a complex interplay of anatomical structures and physiological processes. This is why we have devised our TOP Profile blood tests – comprehensive blood analysis that will provide your practitioner with detailed information on your state of health, including metabolism, sugar- and bone metabolism, iron storage (ferritin), pro-inflammatory factors, thyroid hormones, immune system response, nutrient intake (vitamins, minerals, trace elements), electrolytes, liver- and kidney functioning and hormonal balance, as well as a series of sex-specific parameters.
Signs of physical and mental stress can also be detected through blood tests. The TOP Profile services include urine analysis and all the blood tests listed on our homepage.

Urine analysis

Urine analysis serves to determine the composition of urine and detect any deviations from range parameters. In fact, several substances are sometimes found in the urine that might indicate a disease, including blood, glucose, proteins, white blood cells, bacteria or other pathogens. In addition, urine analysis provides information on pH value, possible metabolic disorders (e.g. increased glycaemia in cases of diabetes) or infections in the kidneys, bladder and urinary tract.
