4 Beauty Treatments Turn Back The Clock

If you’re suffering from hair loss, PRP or Mesotherapy can be used for rejuvenation to increase volume and provide brighter and healthier hair development.

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is the application by injection of platelets taken from your own blood by mixing natural proteins onto the skin. So essentially, your blood is drawn, centrifuged by a device and then reapplied on your scalp by injection. It is a relatively painless non invasive procedure that has been clinically proven to show results.

Mesotherapy is another viable treatment for hair loss that involves the application of medications including vitamins, anti-oxidants and blood circulation – stimulating drugs into hair roots with a thin injector. So deficient substances in the hair root are administrated directly targeting the areas needed. This helps stop hair loss, strengthens the hair and activates new hair roots.

Microneedling is a dermaroller procedure that uses small needles to prick the skin. The purpose of treatment is to generate new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer, more toned skin. In many cases it has been shown to significantly improve the appearance of scars, wrinkles, and large pores. The process is slightly uncomfortable but not really painful. If you have a low pain threshold, numbing cream can be used. The procedure has little or no needed downtime. Some patients experience redness for the day but generally the skin goes back to normal within the hour. Results are visible as early as a few days in.

Cool sculpting is the perfect non-invasive way to target areas of your body with stubborn fat. Not a treatment for obesity; instead, it is designed for spot treatment of “problem” areas such as muffin top, back fat, and stomach rolls. A specialised machine is used to freeze fat under the skin without damaging the skin itself. There is no need for anesthesia, no pain and no prolonged recovery. Results are clinically proven and lasting.

Cellulite is simply normal fat beneath the skin, but it appears bumpy as it’s pushing against connective tissue. While it affects most women and is in no way a sign of being unhealthy or overweight many of us want it gone! Radiofrequency is the ultimate skin tightening and anti-cellulite technology. By applying intensive heat on collagen and fat cells, radiofrequency helps increase skin tightness and reduce fat, thereby improving the contour and texture of the body and face. Once again the procedure is non invasive and has no recovery time.
