Advanced Skin Care Treatments
SkinPen by Bellus Medical
is the first FDA-cleared microneedling device.
It causes controlled micro-injuries that stimulate your body’s natural wound healing process, while minimizing cellular damage. The result is effective remodeling of scar tissue, while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact.1
There are three phases to the wound-repair process:
Phase I: Inflammation. Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to disinfect the wounds, remove debris, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue.
Phase II: Proliferation. The wound is rebuilt with new granulation cells, which are part of the extracellular matrix. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops.
Phase III: Remodeling. The wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels.
Best of all, SkinPen works. Ninety percent of subjects in the clinical trial would recommend the procedure to family and friends.
AQUAGOLD FINE TOUCH (MICROCHANNELING DEVICE)
Aquagold Fine Touch is a step up from traditional microneedling procedures, dermal fillers or injections. It covers a larger treatment area and delivers healing solutions deep into deeper into the dermis (600-micron depth), allowing them to be absorbed more effectively than with a single syringe. Many patients choose to use the AquaGold Fine Touch microneedling system on their face, neck, or chest.
Shrinks pores with micro-botox
Smooth skin with dermal micro-hyaluronic gel such as Juvederm or Restylane
Improve superficial acne scarring with micro-hyaluronic gel
Enhance laser treatments with micro-serums containing growth factors
Brighten skin with micro-pigment reducers
Painless procedure with minimal potential short term redness
The device is made up of 24 karat gold needles, each smaller than a hair follicle. These nearly microscopic needles painlessly create very tiny open surfaces in the skin, delivering anti-aging and skin refining treatments deep into the dermis.
During the procedure, the skin is cleansed and the chosen solution or serum is inserted into the delivery device. The AquaGold Fine Touch device is applied to the treatment area and the tiny needles penetrate the skin, delivering the solution painlessly, without any bleeding. The entire procedure takes less than 30 minutes, and involves no downtime or recovery, although some patients may see redness and slight swelling for a few days at the treatment site.
PLATELET RICH PLASMA
What is Platelet-rich Fibrin Matrix (PRFM)
PRFM is a next generation platelet therapy with a more advanced preparation of PRP. This fibrin rich matrix goes through a strict controlled process that eliminates contamination that leaves the end-result of the PRP solution free of radicals and rich in gold color. PRP is converted to PRFM through a controlled process, creating a scaffold that serves to protect, preserve, and sustain platelets and growth factors.
What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP is a concentrated sample of your own blood composed primarily of high levels of platelets and growth factors. Platelets create a pro-inflammatory reaction that creates a cascade of healing and regeneration while growth factors stimulate internal stem cells and signaling molecules to stimulate collagen and fibroblast growth. Growth factors also stimulate your bodies cells to produce more progrowth proteins vital for anti-aging and healing damaged or wrinkled skin.
Why Platelets and Growth Factors rejuvenate skin
Platelets essentially create inflammation in order to stimulate the bodies endogenous mechanism of healing and regeneration. When injected into specific areas of the skin it initially creates inflammation to stimulate the bodies natural repair mechanisms. After several weeks, the bodies internal mechanisms convert to an anti-inflammatory process that allows your own collagen to grow, regenerate tissue, and thus naturally smooths and tightens the skin. This will soften wrinkles and create smoother skin texture.
The goal of skin rejuvenation therapy is to improve skin tone and texture, tighten skin, soften lines and pores. Results begin to show 3-4 weeks after the treatment session and continue to improve with time.
Facelift and Facial
Lip lines, crows feet, forehead lines, neck lines
Stretch Marks and Scar Restoration
Platelet Rich Plasma, also known as “PRP” is an injection treatment whereby a person’s own blood is used. A fraction of blood is drawn up from the patient into a syringe. When PRP is injected into the damaged area it causes a mild inflammation that triggers the healing cascade. The full procedure takes approximately 45 minutes to an hour. Generally 2-3 treatments are advised, however, more may be necessary for some individuals. Touch up treatments may be done once a year after the initial group of treatments to boost and maintain the results.
BENEFITS of PRP: Along with the benefit of using your own tissue therefore virtually eliminating allergies, there is the added intrigue of mobilizing your own stem cells for your benefit. PRP has been shown to have overall rejuvenating effects on the skin including: improving skin texture, thickness, fine lines and wrinkles, increasing volume via the increased production of collagen and Elastin, and by diminishing and improving the appearance of scars. The most dramatic results t o d a t e have been the crepey skin problems in areas such as under the eyes, neck, and décolletage. It is not designed to replace cosmetic surgery as there are some cases where t h o s e procedures w o u l d b e more appropriate. Other benefits include: minimal down time, safe with minimal risk, short recovery time, natural looking results; no general anesthesia is required.
