Crepy Skin

Crepy SkinWhile there are many empty promises of treatment options for crepy skin there are a few things that can actually make a difference. One in particular is the fractional laser…especially when combined with PRP (platelet rich plasma) and …wait for it…poly lactic acid (that’s right sculptra)!!
Fractional laser works by using a tiny laser beam to treat thousands of pinpoint areas of your skin. Because only a fraction of your skin is directly treated with the laser, the surrounding untreated tissue promotes rapid healing. This skin’s wound healing response creates new collagen which add firmness and resilience to the skin and skin area may be treated and is not limited to the face and the neck.

After the laser treatment and mixture of P.R.P. (derived by a simple blood draw) and ploy lactic acid are mixed and microneedled into the tissue. The P.R.P. contains you growth factors in a concentrated form which not only help speed healing from the treatment but also aid in new collagen formation. Poly lactic acid (Scuptra) is a bio stimulator and was originally approved for facial fat loss and is now commonly used as a dermal filler but because of its consistency and mode of action it can be used as an adjunct to the fractional laser microneedling treatment to create new collagen elastin and improve the texture of your skin.

Hair Regrowth

Hair GrowthWell this is a concern for everyone…,hair thinning is not just a concern for men anymore and is there really anything that helps or are we all just destined to be bald? Well let me first preface this by mentioning health….you cant have healthy full hair if you don’t have a healthy lifestyle. For any plant or animal to grow it needs the right food, water and sunshine…. that being said if you are doing those things then a little boost from P.R.P. may be all you need. Yes P.R.P. again…its like the fountain of youth inside your own body. In a study in the British Journal of Dermatology it was shown that P.R.P. demonstrated a significant increase in cell proliferation markers in hair regrowth!
