New to Dr William Mooney & Face Plus Medispa clinics are two exciting modalities:
Laser Skin Tightening (Titan) and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Titan Is an extension on our ‘Top of the Range’ Cutera technology that can be implemented either in isolation or in conjunction with our already ‘high demand’ Genesis laser treatments. Titan is specifically for skin tightening which also bypasses the surface of the skin with energy delivery between 1100 -1800nm or, reaching to 3.5mm below the skin’s surface into the dermis. No anaesthetic is required as we like your feedback on sensation. Client selectivity is precise for any age group but the range is from anyone beginning to notice a small degree of skin laxity even in their 30’s who would possibly only require one treatment per annum to any age group whose skin is obviously lax but contains very little fat. For optimal results, this older group would have three treatments 6 weeks apart. For laser treatments, it is vital to have had no sun exposure a week before and after each treatment and no evidence of spray tans at the time of treatment. The degree of tightening seen is subjective but you can be looking towards 30%. There will be before and after photographs taken to show the change. As Titan delves into the dermis, additional benefits such as collagen rebuilding and increased oxygenation into the skin’s surface which gives a fabulous appearance of wellness and plumpness.
PRP Rejuvenation PRP is a natural treatment that has been around for a while, however, the superior advanced technology of the ‘Angel’ is a fully automated and closed centrifuge system which scientifically delivers a ‘stand alone’ level of undamaged platelets. PRP is an in rooms medical procedure that incorporates extracting blood from an arm vein which is immediately centrifuged to separate your blood’s cells and plasma. The platelets which contain high levels of intact growth factor are then injected to achieve amazing rejuvenation. This rejuvenation can be seen as improvement in skin tone, volume, fine lines, scars, plumpness which includes tightening, wound healing and scar diminishment are all achieved either in one or x3 annual treatments, depending on age and the state of your skin. The exciting points of difference with PRP is that it enables treating fine lines and wrinkles and loose skin around the eyes, it’s from your own body and therefore totally safe and free from any adverse reactions. Angel PRP is fantastic as its high concentration of undamaged Platelets can deliver an equally high level of growth factors which are released at the time of injection to provide wonderful regeneration. The results are a natural appearance of the skin and is a well suited treatment in conjunction with Dermal Fillers. First results are a visible dewiness of the skin at 3 weeks with definite results at 6 weeks being an ideal for repeated treatments. Best results are seen at 6 months but are, of course, dependent of your skin’s original status, your age, diet, whether you smoke and skin type. The entire treatment for a face takes an average hour an longer for more areas at the same time.
By combining these two treatments on your face, neck, arms or abdomen, the area of concern will look rejuvenated and appear tighter, smoother and firmer. For further information on the PRP or TITAN, call Face Plus Medispa on (02) 8897 0000.
