Research article of International Journal of Aesthetic Medicine and Health RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN PHYSICAL ACTIVITY LEVELS AND SOCIOECONOMIC STATUS ON THE QUALITY OF LIFE OF MORBID OBESE CANDIDATES FOR BARIATRIC SURGE   Thaurus Vinícius de Oliveira Cavalcanti1*, Bárbara Amaral Bruno Silva2, José Cristiano Faustino1, Luís Felipe Almeida Diniz1, Paulo Roberto Cavalcanti Carvalho1 1Departamento de Educação Física – Universidade Federal de Pernambuco; ²Laboratório Avançado de Educação Física e Saúde - Hospital das Clínicas de Pernambuco. Objective: To investigate the relationship between perception of quality of life, levels of physical activity and socioeconomic status of morbidly obese candidates for bariatric surgery, registered in the outpatient clinic of HC/UFPE/EBSERH. Methods: Cross-sectional observational research conducted with sixty-two morbidly obese individuals candidates for bariatric surgery with age=39,53±10,72 years and BMI=50,05±9,26 kg/m², where they were interviewed using the IPAQ, SF-36 and ABEP questionnaires. Spearman's correlation was used to correlate continuous variables and differences between groups were analyzed using the Kruskal-Wallis test. Results: The Physical Functioning domain had a significantly higher score (p=0,01) for the level of Moderate physical activity (61,05±25,03; n=19) compared to the Low level (40,83±23,20; n=30); the Role-Physical domain had a significantly higher score (p=0,029) for the level of High physical activity (65,38±36,14; n=13) compared to those of Low level (35,83±35,77; n=30). Individuals of socioeconomic status B (n=17) had scores significantly higher than individuals of status C (n=45) in the Physical Functioning [X² (1) = 4,800; p <0.05], General Health [X² (1) = 11.568; p <0.01], Vitality [X² (1) = 7.278; p <0.01], Social Functioning [X² (1) = 4.086; p <0.05], Role-Emotional [X² (1) = 6.467; p <0.05] and Mental Health [X² (1) = 7.055; p <0.01] domains. Conclusion: Morbidly obese candidates for bariatric surgery with low levels of physical activity have lower scores on physical components of quality of life and when framed in a ...

ACUTE EFFECTS OF STRENGTH TRAINING WITH DIFFERENT INTENSITIES ON INFLAMMATORY MARKERS OF GRADE III OBESE WOMEN

Research article of International Journal of Aesthetic Medicine and Health ACUTE EFFECTS OF STRENGTH TRAINING WITH DIFFERENT INTENSITIES ON INFLAMMATORY MARKERS OF GRADE III OBESE WOMEN Bárbara Amaral Bruno Silva1, Paulo Roberto Cavalcanti Carvalho2 Cristiane Moutinho Lagos de Melo4, Diego José Lira Torres3, José Cristiano Faustino1, Luís Felipe Almeida Diniz1, Thaurus Vinícius de Oliveira Cavalcanti1, Virgínia Maria Barros de Lorena3 Laboratório Avançado de Educação Física e Saúde - Hospital das Clínicas de Pernambuco1; 2Departamento de Educação Física – Universidade Federal de Pernambuco; 3Departamento de Imunologia – Instituto Aggeu Magalhães, Fundação Oswaldo Cruz; 4Departamento de Antibióticos – Universidade Federal de Pernambuco. Objective: To compare the acute effects of a high-intensity (AI) resistance training protocol with a moderate-intensity (MI) resistance training protocol on inflammatory markers in grade III obese women. Methods: This is a crossover controlled clinical trial carried out with 9 obese grade III women (BMI=48.29±5.06 kg/m²; age=35.22±10.93 years), where blood samples were collected in the pre, 15 minutes and 24 hours after two different training protocols, high and moderate intensity, being analyzed the plasma concentrations of the cytokines IL-2, IL-4, IL-6, IL-10, TNF-α and IFN- γ. For data analysis, the Friedman and Mann-Whitney tests were used. Participants performed the AI protocol and one week later the MI protocol. The training consisted of 4 exercises with the total volume equalized, with intensities 75 and 85% of 1RM for the MI and AI protocols, respectively. Results: There were no significant differences between the three temporal measures in the AI group [IL-02 (p=0.459); IL-04 (p=0.368); IL-06 (p=0.368); IL-10 (p=0.895); TNF-α (p=0.895) and IFN-γ (p=0.895)] or MI [IL-02 (p=0.459); IL-04 (p=0.368); IL-06 (p=0.459); IL-10 (p=0.368); TNF-α (p=0.641) and IFN-γ (p=0.121)]. In the analysis between groups, the IL-04 value was significantly higher in the AI group at the PRE moment (p=0.008), with no other significant ...

CLINICAL STUDY OF ANTI-AGING EFFECT OF SEQUENTIAL APPLICATIONS OF BIOSITMULATING PEELING DEVICE AND BOOSTER INJECTIONS

Research article of International Journal of Aesthetic Medicine and Health Clinical Study of Anti-aging Effect of Sequential Applications of Biositmulating Peeling Device and Booster Injections Irina Poleva, MD Scuola di Scienze del Farmaco e dei Prodotti della Salute, UNICAM, Camerino, Italy Background: The global request for the minimally invasive treatments lowering down ageing process grows. The author conducted a study introducing a new approach in this field. Objective: The aim of the study was to evaluate, using 3D photosystem the effect of the sequential applications of biostimulating peeling device and booster injections in facial rejuvenation. Patients and methods: The protocol consists in the sequential application of a special peeling solution with an innovative formulation following by intradermal injections of a booster solution on 10 healthy volunteers (mean age 52) once a week for 6 weeks (one week peeling, one week booster). After 8 weeks of treatment objective evaluation was made using 3D photosystem with considerations of wrinkles, pores and uniformity of the skin. Results: The treatment protocol was found by patients not painful, pleasurable with no downtime. No side effects were reported during or after study conclusion. All parameters (wrinkles, pores, skin uniformity) improved 8 weeks after the protocol administration. The improvement of pore condition from T1 (score 3,37) to T2 (score 4,57) was 1,2 points, wrinkle condition from T1 (3,47) to T2 (5,93) was 2,46 points, uniformity of the skin from T1 (2,53) to T1 (4,03) was 1,5 points. The average improvement from T1 (3,12) to T2 (4,85) was 1,73 points. Keywords: anti-aging, biostimulation, peeling, skin booster, rejuvenation ...

Research article of International Journal of Aesthetic Medicine and Health EXPERIENCE REPORT: PUBLIC ATTENDANCE WITH ANAMNESIS, BIOIMPED ASSESSMENT AND BASIC SKIN CLEANING PROTOCOL SERVICES Teixeira, vitória Carreiro de França1; MEDEIROS, Laura Guimaro Cunha de2; MIZOBATA, Nathalia Ayako Mitsueda3 1Federal University of Goiás  2 Federal University of Goiás 3 Federal University of Goiás Introduction: Concern about beauty is noticeably growing in our society. Thus, aesthetics are used to meet the search needs not only for physical well-being, but also for biopsychosocial. Skin care is essential for maintaining its vitality. Therefore, daily treatment is indispensable to establish skin balance, controlling hydration, oiliness and protection against ultraviolet rays. The importance of teaching people how to take care of their skin is essential to the quality of life, however there are still myths and conflicts to be fought about preventive care. Thereby, it helps to strengthen the construction of positive self-image, as well as collaboration to improve the quality of life, encompassing mental, physical and psychological health of the individual. Objectives: To provide participants with basic knowledge of daily facial skin care, guiding the correct order of the products to be used, prevention methods against photoaging, epidermal intoxication, oiliness and dehydration. Provide practical and explanatory demonstration on the subject, and demonstrate physiological patterns of hydration and oiliness of the patient's skin through bioimpedance. Methodology: At first, an anamnesis form was made to evaluate the community skin routine. Factors such as age, ethnicity, history and habits were considered relevant in the condition of a skin. Then instructions were given and questions about the correct skin cleansing protocol were solved. Participants also underwent an assessment of the proportion of the amount of oil and water on their faces, made from a digital bioelectrical impedance device. Finally, the skin was cleaned following the steps of: cleaning, exfoliation, ...
