Anti-aging treatment typically incorporates a combination of cosmetic procedures, including micro-needling, stimulation of growth factors, and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment. This treatment combination induces the body’s own natural healing process and creates a significant reset of the aging process. It can address all signs of skin aging such as lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, eye puffiness, droopy eyelids and much more.
Microneedling is a procedure that uses very fine needles to create tiny punctures in the skin. These small contact points stimulate the body’s natural wound-healing ability and cell renewal process triggering the production of new collagen and elastin and resulting in an almost immediate plumping effect. Microneedling is also an effective treatment for other skin conditions such as scarring, dark spots and sun damage.
Microneedling treatments can be performed on the body as well as the face with minimal downtime. For best results, a course of treatments is usually recommended.
Growth Factor Therapy is a non-surgical treatment that uses the thrombocytes from your own blood to stimulate your body’s natural healing abilities.
These activated thrombocytes secrete and release at least 7 different growth factors that promote skin regeneration.
During a Growth Factor Therapy treatment, a small amount of your blood is drawn into a sterile tube in the exact same manner as a standard blood test. The tube is then placed into a centrifuge and spun to separate the plasma and thrombocytes from the other blood components.
After a few minutes, the Growth Factor Therapy layer is removed and is ready to be reintroduced into the body. Using a very fine sterile needle, your medical practitioner will inject the Growth Factor Therapy in and around the specific area to be treated.
The production of new collagen induced by the Growth Factor Therapy treatment will brighten, rejuvenate and rehydrate the skin even after the first treatment. To experience the full effects of this pioneering technique, a course of 3 to 4 treatments is usually recommended.
IPL or Intense Pulsed Light is a light-based treatment that is used to treat a variety of skin conditions.
IPL treatments, sometimes referred to as “IPL photofacials,” are broad-spectrum light treatments. IPL works the same way as a skin laser, converting light energy to heat to target cells below the skin’s surface without damaging the top layers of skin. IPL uses short blasts of a polychromatic, high-intensity light to penetrate just beneath the skin’s surface, either breaking up the melanin cells that cause brown age spots, or destroying broken capillaries, the small, dilated, non-functional veins medically known as telangiectasia rosacea.
IPL treatments also stimulate collagen and elastin production, thus plumping up fine lines and giving your skin an overall healthy glow. IPL treatments can rejuvenate the texture and tone of the skin, to create a younger-looking, refreshed appearance.
