Platelet Rich Plasma is a concentrate of platelet-rich plasma protein derived from the whole blood after it has been processed by spinning in a centrifuge to remove the red cells.
It has a greater concentration of growth factors than the whole blood. Growth factors, in a sense, play the role of messengers signaling skin cells to function and they’ve been used in medicine to treat a range of health issues, including arthritis.
In the more recent years PRP has been used to help stimulate the activity of the hair follicles and promote new hair growth. PRP can also be used in combination with microneedling on the face and chest to promote a healthy, glowing looking skin.
Microneedling or Collagen Induction Therapy creates micro-punctures in your skin with the help of a Dermapen that has super tiny needles in the very tip. Once these little punctures are created the skin goes into the healing mode and sends fibroblasts to create more collagen into the affected area.
The Microneedling treatment can be done with different healing or hydrating serums but for the ultimate glow and for reducing scars, small wrinkles etc. it is best to combine microneedling with PRP.
When PRP is used with microneedling, it penetrates the skin through the tiny channels that microneedles create.The use of PRP supercharges the Microneedling benefits. It works great for undereye puffiness and dark circles to give the patient a more well-rested appearance (who doesn’t need that?)
Since PRP is derived from your own blood, the side effects are virtually eliminated. Works great for any skin type and the downtime is reasonable.
Lumecca is the most powerful IPL to treat pigmented and vascular lesions. Lumecca operates using photo-thermolysis, which provides a photo facial through the delivery of a comfortable light treatment.
Lumecca improves the appearance of sun damage, age spots (red and brown pigmentation), rosacea (redness) and freckles. A series of 1-3 treatments is needed but many patients have great results even after one treatment. The treatment has very little downtime and is a lunchtime procedure; makeup may be used after treatment.
*Dark spots may get darker before they fade.
BodyFX is a superior solution to improve the unsightly appearance of cellulite, reduce
dimpled skin, loss of elasticity on the abdomen, love handles, hips, thighs and other areas that require fat reduction.
BodyFx uses a combination of different clinically proven modalities including radio-frequency energy, deep tissue heating and suction coupled negative pressure.
The radio-frequency energy distributes heat to the skin and underlying fat, causing the tissue
to heat and contract. The vacuum and controlled energy pulses then work synergistically to provide beautiful body shaping results.
There is absolutely no downtime for BodyFx; it can be a lunch time procedure. Patients will notice a redness and warmth in the treated area which will subside after a few hours. BodyFx works on every skin type.
*It is recommended that weekly sessions are performed 4 to 6 times for best results.
