Botox treatment works by blocking the nerves that contract muscles, softening the appearance of wrinkles.
Botox is most effective on wrinkles that haven’t quite set -- “dynamic” wrinkles that appear while you’re moving your face, such as when you frown. “If you don’t move the muscle too much, you won’t form the wrinkle”.
Side effects are possible: headaches, bruising, pain at the site of injection, and, in fewer than 1% of cases, drooping eyelids or eyebrows that return to their natural position within a few months.
The PDO Thread Lift is a treatment which lifts and tightens sagging skin tissue, using threads made of Polydioxanone (PDO). The threads introduce them into the deeper layers of the skin. Once introduced, the threads produce three effects in the skin:
Instant Skin Lifting through mechanical effects
Cellular Renewal, through Collagen stimulation, and neovascularisation to improve skin texture, fine lines, and elasticity
In aesthetics, we often focus on the hottest trend or technology that will transform skin and help us look as youthful as we feel. But sometimes, going back to basics and reimagining time-honored techniques can be just as good for our skin (if not better!) and produce amazing results. As we like to say, what’s old can be new again. That’s what leads us to platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment, a technique that involves drawing your blood, and separating out the protein and growth-factor-rich plasma from the sample which can be used in your body and on your skin for regenerative, anti-inflammatory and rejuvenating purposes.
Platelet – Rich - Plasma facial includes drawing blood from your arm, separating the platelets, and then injecting them into your skin through a very thin needle after being numbed with topic anesthesia.
Since the platelets are high in growth hormone, your plasma stimulates the production of different proteins such as collagen, elastin and fibroblasts which are needed to give a healthy, hydrated and radiant aspect to your skin. Side effects of the treatment are little expected due to the fact that you are nurturing your skin with your own proteins; could be local reactions to the needlework e.g. bruising and redness.
The results are immediate and middle term, meaning that after three or four sessions you will visibly have a younger,clearer and healthier skin.
RADIESSE is a wrinkle filler used to plump the skin. RADIESSE is injected through a small needle and placed under the skin. Immediately, this filler works to add volume under the skin and over time, the benefits of RADIESSE continue by stimulating your body’s own natural collagen. The natural results have been shown to last a year or more in many patients, making the treatment results both immediate and long lasting.
The cosmetic results are immediate, natural and subtle. The correction is long-lasting, but not permanent. The CaHA microspheres naturally degrade to calcium and phosphate ions, which are metabolized by the body’s normal processes.
Vampire treatment is a combination of a microdermabrasion, followed by the application of PRP (platelet-rich plasma). The PRP is derived from the serum portion of the blood, which contains platelets. The platelets contain high levels of growth factors, which, when applied to the skin, will stimulate cell turnover.
It's a facial that essentially uses your own blood to help promote the healthy activity of your skin cells.
Vampire treatment is basically Platelet-rich plasma used topically as part of a regular facial, used along with microneedling toenhance penetration into the skin.
The treatment begins with venipuncture (a blood draw) to obtain the blood. But, contrary to popular belief, it's relatively painless — aside from the first needle pinch.
Typically, the process includes the initial blood draw, then running the blood through a centrifuge to isolate the platelets. You'll then receive microneedling or microdermabrasion just before your PRPs are slathered across your face.
When the platelets are applied, they trick your skin into thinking that it is injured, making it produce more collagen.
