During his speech, the president of the Cabildo de Gran Canaria, Antonio Morales, took advantage of the event to speak about the need to increase environmental awareness in society. "We all need to be very aware of the important role we have to play in combating climate change, which can determine our future existence," he explained. Morales stressed that the scientific community has been warning about environmental deterioration, "which can be irreversible if we do not remedy it", and spoke of "collective suicide" if as a society we focus only on growth, without taking the environment into account.
The president recalled that Gran Canaria may suffer more virulently from the consequences of climate change, "which are already being noticed", recalling that 80% of our territory is already at risk of desertification. "That is why it is so important to promote initiatives such as those launched by HPS to, together, seek the best solutions," he concluded.
Campaign for the health of La Cumbre
The campaign has connected the need to take care of the skin with the obligation to respect and protect the environment. Thus, "By taking care of your skin, you take care of our Summit" has linked
each highly advanced laser treatment that the HPS Dermatology and Dermo-Aesthetics Unit has performed on its patients with the planting of a tree in La Cumbre for the hospital together with ADAPA and Foresta.
The connection with the health aspect is evident:
environmental factors generate a large number of traces on the skin. And in many cases, there are innumerable environmental conditions that influence the well-being of the skin: the increase in temperatures and their sudden change, the drop in relative humidity, the allergic consequences of the concentration of pollens, the relationship between the decrease of the ozone layer, ultraviolet radiation and skin cancer... And these traces of the skin, treated with advanced technology, can be resolved in the same way that a forestry intervention such as the one in this campaign can help alleviate the effects of a Terrible fire leaving a positive mark.

each person is unique
HPS invests constantly in advanced technology in the medical-aesthetic field of the skin with the aim of adapting to the specific needs of each person. Laser treatments today are state-of-the-art and capable of addressing skin imperfections: from pigmented and vascular lesions, melasma, rosacea, facial rejuvenation, tattoo removal, stretch marks or scars, to significantly reducing facial wrinkles or dilated pores. .
HPS applies the right combination of four state-of-the-art lasers for each person: Picosure, Revlite, Icon and Silklase™ Co2, which enable high-precision results against skin problems. Each one and their combination allows addressing specific needs.
picosure sprays all ink colors for tattoos and in facial, neck, décolleté and hand revitalization treatments for acne scars or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and darkening in certain areas of the skin that have been affected by inflammation.
Revlite It is especially indicated for cases of dermal and epidermal pigmented lesions, including melasma and small vascular lesions through selective photothermolysis.
Icon It is a fractional laser for skin rejuvenation and treatment of surgical scars and acne marks, stretch marks and melasma, mainly.
Silklase™Co2for its part, treats stretch marks caused when the skin is subjected to sudden changes such as those that occur during puberty, pregnancy or constant weight changes.
HPS has a specialized and highly qualified medical team. One of its specialists, Dr. Nestor Santana, points out that "the advantage of this new generation of lasers that we are using in HPS is that they provide security in the treatment result." As Santana explains,
Lasers allow a preliminary measurement of the skin's characteristics so that the parameters used achieve "the best results, with the greatest safety and in the least number of sessions".
HPS with other social causes
The synergies in health education and the care and defense of the forestry heritage of Gran Canaria that this campaign entails adds to the many other actions and collaborations that the hospital has been carrying out throughout its history in sports, cultural and social matters.
In addition, HPS always collaborates alongside public medicine and contributes its facilities, with great involvement, as it has done with the Covid-19 Pandemic.
