- FACELIFT AT ACADEMY LASER CLINICS
Aging produces negative effects on the facial skin. These include weakening of tissues, facial fat loss, and laxity in the underlying skin support structure. The result is a more elderly facial appearance. Many people today have access to cosmetic procedures that aim to reverse these signs of ageing.
Academy Laser Clinics offers a facelift procedure known as the Silhouette Soft Thread Lift. It is a non-surgical procedure where absorbable skin threads are used to lift and rejuvenate skin on the face and neck. The technique is based on a new lifting method and aims to produce a fresh and youthful appearance. It is considered more reliable and longer lasting compared to other lifting methods.
The Silhouette Soft Thread Lift is recommendable for individuals who have moderately elastic facial skin that exhibits observable gravitational effects (sagging). The most affected areas are usually around the eyes, cheeks, neck, jaws, and eyebrows.
While a complete lift is possible with this technique, patients can choose to treat only the areas of concern. These areas include the middle face, eyebrows, and lower jaw area.
THE TREATMENT PROCESS
The first step is the initial consultation where the doctors advise the patient on the best treatment plan. They then assess the patient’s face to determine thread placement points, which they mark out on the skin.
The doctors insert the dissolvable threads through the skin, tighten them and trim the ends of the sutures below the skin. The threads contain tiny cones, which have dermal fillers. These fillers hold the cones in position to structure the lifted skin.
The doctors then pull the threads through the skin to achieve a lifting effect. This method achieves skin tightening and volume repositioning resulting in the youthful looking skin.
Mild redness and soreness at the sites of treatment may be experienced following the procedure, and the lift will be more pronounced. Over the next few days, the lifting effects settle and the final results in achieved. For some patients, the effects will be visible almost immediately.
Over time, further improvements in lift and tone take place. Optimal results will be noticeable from six weeks to six months. The Silhouette Soft Thread Lift offered at Academy Laser Clinics lasts for up to two years.
- ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION TREATMENT AT CALIBRE CLINIC
Erectile dysfunction is a common ailment, especially among older men. More than half of men above the age of 40 suffer from the symptoms of erectile dysfunction at various stages of their lives. One of the aspects that can lead to this condition is ageing of penile tissue. Other factors include diseases such as diabetes, smoking, injury and drug side effects.
CALIBRE Clinic offers a treatment for erectile dysfunction that facilitates long-term erectile function thus ensuring patients have fulfilling sex lives. The procedure involves the injection of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) that serves to regenerate penile tissue.
ABOUT THE PROCEDURE
The technique utilizes concentrated blood platelets and natural growth factors (bioactive proteins). The platelet-rich plasma triggers tissue repair and regeneration in the penis by activating stem cells and releasing the growth factors. The effect is enhanced by the flow of blood and nerve sensitivity thus helping patients sustain a normal erection.
The great thing about platelet-rich plasma is that it does not have any risks of complications or allergic reactions since it occurs naturally. CALIBRE clinic ensures that it is extracted and administered under aesthetic conditions. Patients undergo an initial consultation to determine the cause of the erectile dysfunction to determine the suitability of the treatment.
The first step is extracting the patient’s blood to extract the necessary components using an advanced centrifuge system. CALIBRE Clinics utilizes an advanced and concentrated extraction system known as EmCyte PurePRPII. This step takes approximately twenty minutes.
The doctor then administers an anaesthetic cream and injects the platelet-rich plasma into penile areas that are crucial to blood flow. Patients should expect some inflammation and swelling that goes away in a few days as fluid is reabsorbed into their body. The recommendable treatment plan for the best results involves several sessions (typically between 1 to 3 sessions) set four to eight weeks apart.
Patients experience noticeable benefits following this procedure. These benefits include stronger and long-lasting erections, enhanced sexual performance, improved sensations, enhance the appearance of skin on the penis and straightened penis for patients with Peyronies curvature (bent penis).
The results from the procedure typically last up to 15 months. The overall results may vary among patients depending on the cause of the condition and individual circumstances.
- PURE PLATELET RICH PLASMA THERAPY
This is a medical technique that normally uses a concentrated blood of a patient, platelets and growth factors to facilitate tissue regeneration. PRP acts by activating skin stem cells resulting in the formation of new collagen, elastin, nerve, and muscle tissue. This technique was developed back in the 1970s and has been used in various medical fields over the years including orthopaedics, pain management, dentistry, and dermatology.
Academy Face and Body offers dermatological treatments that utilize Emcyte Pure Platelet-Rich Plasma injections, which is currently the best treatment agent. This therapy is typically used for facial rejuvenation, neck tightening, lip rejuvenation, eye and mouth area rejuvenation and jawline definition. Individuals with lax, tired and dull skin can benefit from the procedure.
HOW THE PROCEDURE WORKS
A numbing cream is administered to the treatment spots 30 to 45 minutes before treatment. A clinician collects the patient’s blood which undergoes two phases of centrifugation to extract concentrated plasma. The Pure platelet-rich plasma is subsequently injected back into the patient’s areas of concern.
For most patients, the ideal treatment plan involves three sessions spread four weeks apart. Patients can also undergo maintenance treatment every six to twelve months for long-lasting results. In some cases, this kind of therapy technique is recommended as the complementary treatment option to other dermatological treatments such as laser treatments (DOT and CO2 Laser) and skin needling.
One week after treatment, most patients exhibit noticeable improvements in skin hydration. At this point, the skin will appear plumper. Further improvements in structure and volume will be evident within 30 days of treatment. Improvements in the treated areas will continue showing up for up to 90 days.
