Deep skin revitalisation – TO STOP THE TIME
The process of ageing causes gradually progressing changes in our skin which results in reducing the number of fibroblasts, quantity of collagen and elastin fibres and natural hyaluronic acid. As a result of those changes the epidermis and skin are thinned and dehydrated, which results in formation of initially minor wrinkles, and subsequently further changes, causing formation of loosenesses, loose of flexibility and skin dehydration.
Deep skin revitalisation through mesotherapy procedures (that is introducing revitalising substances through a thin needle) aims for correcting and restoring the consistency of the skin (face, neckline, hands) in order to rebuild it (stimulate fibroblasts to produce their own collagen, elastine and glicosaminoglycans) and restore the proper hydration. Obviously, dehydrated skin looks older.
Among the substances used for mesotherapy, shortchained hyaluronic acid (HA) and polynucleotides are used most often, as well as substances (as cocktails) containing vitamines, enzymes, microelements and (absolutely new!) stimulating biomimetic peptides.
Mesotherapy procedures are recommended both for patients with first symptoms of ageing and for more mature patients. They cause rebuilding and improving the quality of the skin, as well as slow down the natural age-related processes. It is recommended to perform the revitalising procedure several times. Three procedures with monthly intervals and subsequently a supporting procedure after about 6 months.
Just as all the aesthetic medicine procedures performed with a very thin needle, mesotherapy can be slightly painful, thus before the procedure an aesthetic cream EMLA is applied.
Indications for mesotherapy:
- wrinkles, dehydration, loose of skin flexibility,
- cellulitis, stretching marks in the skin (alternately with skin peeling),
- hairloss prevention,
- slowly healing wounds,
- procedures like mesobotox,
- in case of presence of skin discolourations,
- against swelling under the eyes,
- to eliminate the signs of fatugue (dark circles around the eyes),
- as skin tightening-lifting procedures,
- in hydrobalance procedure –deep skin moisturisation.
Photorejuvenation – in the procedures with CO2 fractional laser, the laser beam is directed to penetrate into collagen fibres, regenerating and stimulating them. During the procedure the laser beam goes through the epidermis without damaging it. It works as a dressing, thanks to which the skin does not need a lot of time to regenerate.
What is the CO2 fractional laser used for?
- Atrophic scars, post-traumatic scars treatment
- Correction of minor and deep scars and improving its condition, tightening loosened skin.
- Smoothing out the wrinkles of the upper lip, eye area, laser eyelid lifting.
- Photorejuvenation of neck, neckline, hands skin.
- Improving the skin colour, elimination of some sun-related discolourations and enlarged blood vessels.
- Eliminating cornified epidermis.
- Stretching marks reduction.
- Enlarged pores reduction.
When it is best to perform the procedure?
Late autumn and winter is the perfect time for laser surgeries. The procedures can be also performed during other seasons, but the patient must remember to avoid sunlight and to use sunblock during the treatment as well as a certain time after it.
What does the CO2 fractional laser procedure consist of?
The procedure begins with applying an anaesthetic cream to ensure the patient’s comfort. During the skin’s exposure to laser and a some minutes later, blow or contact cooling is used. Photothermal reaction causes an immediate heating of the water in the tissue, and then evaporating it (that is ablation). Subsequently the cells, including collagen cells are damaged, but at the same time repairing processes are triggered, which lead to creation of new collagen. It is vital for the procedure, that the fractional laser does not damage the whole skin, but punctures it, creating microcolumns of damage, which are surrounded with healthy, intact tissue.
… are very spectacular and are visible already after the first procedure and the changes are progressing. The full result is achieved within 6 months after finishing the treatment. The procedures can be performed on every area. Directly after the procedure the patient feels discomfort similar to the reaction after an intensive sunbathing. A small erythema and swelling may last up till 2-3 days. The skin may slightly turn brown, which will pass after few days, which is related to the process of removal of the damaged tissues. A necessary element of a correct and safe therapy is protection from sunlight. Creams with highs SPF should be regularly applied for at least 30 days after the procedure. For about a week after the procedure the patient should avoid alcohol, sauna and hot baths.
Who cannot have laser procedures performed?
The most popular contraindications include:
- tendency for herpes,
- immunosuppression ,
- pregnancy and breastfeeding
- short time after a surgical procedure
- precancerous lesions.
Laser in the hands of the experienced doctors of our clinic is not only effective, but also safe. Although the use of fractional laser leads to a slight discomfort, the rejuvenating effect is definitely worth it.
What is platelet-rich plasma?
Platelet-rich plasma is platelet concentrate in a small volume of plasma. It is obtained in the process of centrifugation the blood sample taken from a vein, directly from the patient before the procedure. It influences the results of skin regeneration, improves its vascularisation, nutrition, regeneration through stem cells stimulation and stimulating fibroblasts to produce new collagen. Through those actions the skin becomes more flexible, firm, brighter and rejuvenated.
Who would benefit from platelet-rich plasma?
Platelet-rich plasma can be used for patients, who suffer from:
- wrinkles, folds, furrow, crow’s feet,
- fatigued, dry and collapsed skin
- lack of skin flexibility
- acne scars
- non-uniform skin colour
- allergy to other rejuvenating products
What are the contraindications for the procedure with plasma?
- blood diseases;
- treatment with some antithrombotics
What does the treatment consist of?
The obtained plasma is administered into the area to be treated in the form of standard mesotherapy procedure through puncturing the skin with a very thin needle. Usually the procedure does not require anaesthesia and it lasts 30-45 minutes. It is performed once and can be repeated every 6-12 months. It can also be performed in a series, but skin regeneration is a process that requires time, thus the effects of the platelet-rich plasma can be assessed only after 3-6 months. The procedure is invasive, thus should be performed only by a doctor and it requires following the rules of antiseptics. Apart from using it in aesthetic medicine, platelet-rich plasma can be also used for hairloss, skin regeneration after laser procedures, as well as in orthopaedics, surgery and stomatology.
