We are now offering aesthetic services based on principles of natural healing, very similar to the way collagen is regenerated in prolotherapy. Our in-house Registered Nurse is trained in aesthetic treatments and provides a range of excellent services.
For skin rejuvenation, Derma rolling is a technique used to stimulate the body’s natural capacity to regenerate collagen in the skin. It involves a local anaesthetic cream being applied to the skin prior to treatment to ensure the procedure is painless. Derma rolling is micro needling to the dermis, which cause a regenerative response in the collagen of the skin through micro-trauma. The multitude of micro channels open in the skin by Derma rolling also makes deep penetration of nutrients applied to the skin possible.
We provide Platelet Rich Plasma to take advantage of the temporary breach, which greatly stimulates collagen and circulation regeneration in the upper layers of the skin.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) involves the patients own blood being taken and processed to extract a concentration of the growth factors released by the platelets. These substances are what drive the essence of healing and regenerative responses in the body. PRP can deliver a high concentration of numerous growth factors to the deeper layers of the dermis.
The expected outcome is a thickening and tightening of the skin, an improvement of the glow and smoothing of pigmentation, suitable for aging and sun damaged skin. For the best outcome, three treatments over 6-12 weeks are recommended.
Patients are asked to come in for an assessment one month prior to treatment, when an individualised preparatory regime will be prescribed in order to prepare the skin for optimal response to the treatment.
Scar Revision for isolated scars
Scar revision is best done with Derma rolling or PRP injections, although isolated scars can also benefit from additional treatments with a Derma stamp (with or without PRP). This treatment is a natural, effective and safe way to reduce scars.
Lipo-dissolve is a non-invasive body sculpting technique that literally ‘melts’ fat under the skin. It is best given in non-obese individuals for reshaping unwanted lumps and bumps. Areas such as inner thighs, abdomen, hips and chin are the best suited to this treatment. Lipo-dissolve has a permanent reshaping effect, much like a non-invasive little bother liposuction.
