Questions and Answers
PRP is platelet rich plasma, which contains growth factors and other regenerative and healing cells derived from blood. PRP can be used in a variety of ways, and we are offering multiple different treatments that incorporate this new technology. PRP for hair loss PRP with microneedling PRP injections We can use PRP as a substrate and glide for microneedling. Once the skin is injured, this allows the growth factors to penetrate deep into the skin, which means more dramatic results. PRP also helps speed up the recovery process. This treatment is ideal for a patient that wants to improve the overall texture of their skin. PRP can also be injected deep into the skin to help promote collagen growth. It is a great preventative treatment for patients looking to fight the aging process. The PRP can also be injected into the scalp, and we concentrate the injections to the specific problem areas discussed with the patient. We recommend a series of treatments for the best result.
Ulthera is a noninvasive procedure that uses ultrasound energy to lift and tighten skin on the face, neck and chest. Ultrasound energy heats the deep layers of the skin, creating microinjuries to the same layer that is lifted during a facelift. As the skin heals, new collagen is produced, creating a lift. Optimal results are seen six months post procedure. Ulthera is a great option for patients that are not ready or do not want to undergo a surgical procedure. Popular treatment areas include the lower face for a tighter jawline and minimized double chin, the brow to improve lid sagging, as well as the neck for firming and tightening of the skin. There is some minor discomfort during the procedure, which is managed with oral medications . A great part of Ulthera versus other invasive procedures is that there is no downtime. After Ulthera, patients look normal and can go out to dinner, or go back to work.
The Fraxel DUAL utilizes non-ablative fractional laser technology to enhance the skin’s overall appearance. It is used to improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, acne and surgical scars, brown spots, stretch marks, and enlarged pores; resulting in smoother, younger looking skin with improved texture and tone. Fractional technology creates microscopic laser columns, which penetrate deep into the skin. The laser only treats a portion of the skin, leaving the surrounding area intact which accelerates the healing process. The laser stimulates the body to heal the treated areas with new, healthy skin. We offer two wavelengths of the Fraxel: the superficial 1927 nm and the deeper 1550 nm. The 1927 setting is ideal for removing skin pigmentation while the 1550 setting is better suited for the stimulation of collagen and reduction of scarring and wrinkles.
Blue and red LED light is a simple, safe, and effective treatment with no downtime. The blue light kills the P. acnes bacteria that cause breakouts, and the red light reduces inflammation that causes inflamed pimples. Red light also has anti-aging properties that boost collagen production in the skin. We can use blue and red LED light in combination with prescription medications or as a stand-alone treatment, an option selected by many of our pregnant patients with acne due to the therapy’s safety during pregnancy. The number of treatments varies depending on the patient and acne severity. Photodynamic therapy (PDT) employs a combination of a topical medication, aminolevulinic acid (ALA), with blue light therapy. PDT works by decreasing oil gland production and kills the P. acnes bacteria. Studies show that PDT is more effective than a blue LED light treatment without ALA.
I strive for our cosmetic patients to walk away with a youthful, natural appearance.
