September…what is happening?

Platelet Rich Plasma is not a new medical treatment. It has been administered for the treatment of burns, scars, wound healing, orthopaedic and plastic surgery for many years and is favoured for its healing properties. Latest research suggests great benefits, combined with medical needling, in the areas of skin rejuvenation, hair restoration, stretch marks and even helping with  erogenous zones..knew that would get your attention.. ABCDE

  • Most aesthetic treatments begin their lives in the medical arena…..as you know I worked with Botox for many years in the areas where over active muscle  in conditions such as, eye squint, stroke and cerebral palsy are treated with Botox.
  • PRP has  a medical history in sports injuries, due to its healing qualities and sport celebrities such as Rafael Nadal,Tiger Woods, have had PRP to support surgery and to help speed recovery from knee injuries.
  • It’s very simple, we all have platelets in our blood which contribute to clotting and healing…think about when you cut yourself platelets are responsible for the growth factors which produce new collagen, new tissue regeneration and healing takes place.
  • When Platelet Rich Plasma is used during and aesthetic treatment In the same process takes places.  Only this time the platelets are extremely concentrated, ensuring lots of growth factors stimulate new tissue regeneration.
  • When your blood sample  is centrifuged, your platelets are separated from your red blood cells  (a complete separation from the red blood cells (a complete separation from the red blood cells, as Cellenis PRP provides, is really important). The preparation process further concentrates your platelets to ensure maximum benefit from your very own growth factors.

Medical Needling

  • Derma2Skin rejuvenation takes place by using  an electronic medical needling device combined with PRP therapy and optional  hyaluronic acid (which is a fabulous skin hydrator).
  • Medical needling is a fantastic intervention. The tiny needles create ‘pin prick’. surface of your skin. ‘Your powerhouse’ (the Dermis) responds to by creating and building new skin tissue.

Introducing Magic Needles

I really wanted to offer YOU a new way of receiving your treatment and so with that in mind we wanted to intoduce to you ‘Magic Needles’ which includes a small needle and a blunt ended longer needle we refer to as a cannula.

Commonly asked questions:

  • How do they differ from the ‘normal needles’ I usually have with my dermal filler?
  • What difference will they make to my treatment?
  • How expensive are they?

sp

 

 

 

 

Answers:

  • There is an initial insertion of a small needle followed by a cannula, it allows me  to control the movement  and have more flexibility into the area I wish to inject, with the great benefit of only having one insertion point and doing this without damaging the skin. The benefits of a cannula are that they allow flexibility.
  • Research suggests that patients experience less bleeding, swelling and bruising and pain at the injection sites (this is because the blunt tip of the cannulas push blood vessels aside instead of puncturing them).  Less bruising and swelling allows for a faster recovery.  Its is also reported that patients can return to their normal lives sooner.
  • And finally …the most important  factor its is reported that cannulas are safer.. due to their blunt ended structure.
  • For a normal TREATMENT the additional cost is approximately £20-€24. (depending on how many cannulas needed)
Fabulous Skin Treatments

As we age one of skin lubricants we lose is hyaluronic acid it is a powerful moisturiser providing plumpness to our skin, we need hyaluronic acid to support and hydrate collagen and elastin. However from the ages of 30 our hyaluronic acid reduces our skin becomes dehydrated, collagen and elastin lose their structure, skin volume and wrinkles appear. HA

The 3 fundamental ways we can receive hyaluronic acid backs into our skin is:

  • Medical grade skin creams.
  • Injections such as Restylane Perlane.
  • Hydrluronic acid is Infused into your skin with the support of  Electronic Medical Needling which causes tiny holes into the surface of your skin.
  • This treatment can be combined with PRP to create a beautiful synergistic effect of beautiful hydrated skin.
  • The cost of 5 ampules of Hyaluronic Acid is  £50-€60.

Our Case Study Research…

3 patients experience with PRP:

Anna, Aged 62, First Aesthetic Treatment

Anna had experienced a really tough year, she had ‘lost’ several relatives and it really seemed to tell on her face. Still a very beautiful slim woman, who was proud of her career, Anna had thought for a while about having some ‘aesthetic work’ but had seen too many celebrities ‘over done’.  Following a comprehensive  facial assessment Anna took a ‘leap of faith in me’  and I decided to blocked out an entire morning to perform Anna’s first aesthetic treatment ever! I reassured Anna no one else would be in Clinic which was a concern Anna had decided to keep her treatment a ‘secret’.  We put together a PRP package with medical needling: for face, neck and hands in combination with 1mls x 2 of Resylane Perlane for volume loss. Anna invested in 2 cannulas at an additional cost of £20 and a post treatment pack. We co-ordinated an appointment for Anna 24 hours later it was great to see only a very small bruise which was already fading.  There is research to suggest that 3 PRP appointments are required to acquire the best results from this amazing treatment further appointments are organised for  October and November…’As Anna left to pop into town ..she stated Im really pleased with it, its Anna’s secret!

Beautiful Woman 

James, Aged 31, Hair Thinning

Over the past few years James had notice that his hair was thinning he felt his Dad started to look back at him in the mirror! Despite cutting his hair very short around the sides he was struggling to hide his thinning top. Again he was anxious to keep his appointment when he would not bump into anyone in the Clinic therefore we arranged a late evening appointment. He very kindly allowed us to share with you his pre-treatment photos, we will share his results with you over the coming months.
