DERMAL FILLERS

We LOVE dermal filler here at Lift! Why? because our filler results are fabulous! Dermal filler can be used to correct asymmetry, volumise and contour the face as well as rejuvenate the skin. Dermal fillers (when done well) offer beautiful results and at Lift Aesthetics you can be assured that you are in good hands. We will never overfill! Natural is always our preferred aesthetic. Just ask to see our results and we will proudly show you some of our clients amazing and stunning transformations. Our aim is to leave you looking refreshed with undetectable results. The effects are immediate and last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years.

Dermal filler pricing:

  • $700 – $800 per syringe (1ml and 1.2mls)
  • Full Face Beautification and Rejuvenation Packages – from: $1950

Consumer Information: Dermal Fillers are a gel containing hyaluronic acid that is injected by a healthcare professional into or below the skin to smooth facial wrinkles and enhance lips by restoring volume and fullness. Do not have Dermal Filler injections in an area where there is a non-resorbable implant or if you have irritated or infected skin, allergy to hyaluronic acid or other severe allergies, autoimmune disorders or hypersensitivity to local anaesthetic or porphyria.  Caution if you have a bleeding disorder if you take medicines that prolong bleeding time, have had poor results with previous similar injections, have angina combined with rheumatism or a tendency to large scar formation.  Dermal Filler treatments may result in some redness, swelling, pain or tenderness, itching and/or bruising which may last a few days. Inflammatory reactions can last up to two weeks in rare cases. See your healthcare professional if any side effects concern you.  Exposure to excessive sunlight or extreme cold should be avoided until redness or swelling has resolved. Dermal Fillers are not recommended for people taking blood thinning medicines and they have not been tested in pregnant or breastfeeding women. ALWAYS FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS YOU ARE GIVEN.

LIP FILLER

Lip fillers are specifically designed to deliver a natural feel and look to your lips. Depending on whether you require definition, a subtle plump or a kissable pout, we will recommend the right lip treatment for you. Clients are often worried about getting lip filler as they don’t want to look overdone. At Lift Aesthetics we believe it’s better to take a less-is-more approach and gradually build up to your desired result. Providing natural and beautiful looking results is what Camille and her team are known for.

FILLER DISSOLVER

More and more frequently we are seeing new client’s requesting their filler be dissolved after having their treatments done elsewhere. We first request you seek a resolution at the clinic you attended. If you can’t get the help needed, then we are happy to assist on a case by case basis. Multiple sessions may be required.

  • From $350 per session for another clinic/injectors work.
PROFHILO – COLLAGEN BOOSTER

Profhilo is one of our favourites at Lift for sure! It’s a collagen stimulating injectable treatment that is used to improve the texture, hydration, radiance and overall quality of the skin – ummm yes please! It is made up of hyaluronic acid which is a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps to hydrate and plump the skin. Profhilo is perfect for older as well as younger skins and our clients just love their Profhilo glow! Profhilo is a must before any important event, ensuring you are looking your best.

  • Single Treatment – $900
  • Two Treatments – $1650
FAT DISSOLVER

Fat dissolving is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that involves injecting a substance called deoxycholic acid into areas of unwanted fat. It can be used anywhere on the body however the most commonly injected area is the submental fat also known as the double chin. This procedure destroys the unwanted fat cells and helps to contour the jawline or wherever it’s injected. Multiple treatments may be required. 

  • From $1,350 per treatment
PLATELET RICH PLASMA - PRP

PRP therapy (also known as the ‘vampire facial’ made famous by Kim Kardashian) is a treatment that uses your own platelets to stimulate new cell growth. This helps to rejuvenate the skin and slow the signs of ageing. During this procedure your blood is taken in the same way as a routine blood test. It is then spun in a centrifuge which enables the separation of the red blood cells from your plasma and platelets. This is then re-injected into the skin to stimulate collagen. PRP harnesses the healing properties of your own platelets therefore there is no risk of an allergic reaction and it is a great way to naturally revitalise the area being treated.

The procedure is relatively quick and anaesthetic cream is used for comfort. Most people require three treatments at four weekly intervals. Collagen production can take up to three months to occur and the results can differ depending on the individual. Results can last up to 18+ months.

  • From $700 per treatment. Three sessions are required per treatment course
COLLAGEN BOOSTER THREADS

Mono collagen stimulating threads are made of Polydioxanone (PDO) which is the material used in dissolvable stitches. Numbing cream is applied and the threads are inserted in a mesh like fashion to provide support and structure to the skin. Once the needle is removed, the fine thread stays in place. The threads are fully absorbable by the body and will be completely dissolved at around 3 months post insertion. This process creates cellular renewal and collagen stimulation in the area being treated which in turn produces a skin tightening effect and smoother appearance.

PDO threads can be used virtually anywhere on the face or body. Some results are noticeable straight away however the full effect can be seen at around 3 months after your treatment. Mono threads are a great option for areas where botulinum toxin or filler isn’t suitable or anywhere the skin needs a boost.

  • From $650 per treatment
V2 INJECTOR MICRO DERMAL FILLER
The V2 is an innovative treatment that combines skin needling with the injection of hyaluronic acid dermal filler along with other amino acids, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that are all naturally present in our skin. This results in the formation of new collagen thus creating a firmer, more hydrated and radiant appearance. The V2 injector is typcially used on the face, neck, decolletage and hands however this treatment can be used anywhere on the body. You can also cocktail it with Botulinum Toxin to enhance your results even further! Perfect for a special event or for everyday beautiful, glowing skin! A course of three treatments is recommended for best results at 3-4 weekly intervals.
  • $760 – 3mls
  • $2,260 for a 3 x 3ml treatment course which includes a complimentary Aspect Dr Starter Kit (valued at $165) to maximise your results.
HYPERHIDROSIS

Hyperhidrosis is a condition characterized by excessive axillary sweating. Although primarily a physical burden, hyperhidrosis can deteriorate a persons quality of life from a psychological, emotional, and social perspective. Patients are often self conscious of their odour, they can’t wear certain types of clothing and are usually quite embarrassed by their sweating. It can truly have a negative impact on their daily lives. Botulinum toxin injections can help significantly and patients often report a reduction in sweating for up to 6 months. Individual results will vary and sometimes larger dosing is required. This procedure is quick, effective and has no downtime. Anaesthetic cream is used for comfort.

  • Excessive axillary sweating – $1190
MICROBOTOX®

MicroBotox® is a different technique used to administer Botulinum Toxin superficially into the skin. This technique can help reduce pore size, soften lines and wrinkles as well as provide a significant improvement to the skins glow and appearance. It can be done on the face, neck, décolletage or even the backs of hands and other areas of the body.  If you want to take your skin to the next level, then this is it!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Dermal Filler?
Dermal Filler is essentially Hyaluronic Acid (HA) which is a naturally occurring sugar molecule produced within our bodies. HA has many benefits such as keeping our skin plump and hydrated due to it’s ability to hold and retain up to 1000 times it’s weight in water.

As we age, much like collagen and elastin, the amount of HA we have starts to decline. This leads to a loss of facial volume and support. Dermal filler is therefore a fantastic treatment for adding structure and support to areas that may need it such as cheeks or lips. It’s great for giving your skin a boost of hydration in the areas treated. Dermal Fillers can help to enhance your beauty, prevent the signs of ageing and restore/rejuvenate areas where it’s administered.

Is it safe?
Most of the time, yes. However Dermal Fillers, like all medical procedures carry some risk. During your consultation, we will check your medical history, discuss the benefits, any potential adverse reactions and take you through the consent process. Once we both have all of the information, we can then explore if this treatment is right for you or not. We will support you either way. You need to be comfortable with your decision and if clients are ever hesitant or unsure, we will send them away to think it over first.

What is the difference between fillers?
All of the fillers we use are made of Hyaluronic Acid. There are different types and strengths of HA for different areas of the face. Cheek filler for an example, should not be used in the lips or under the eyes. Depending on the area being treated, some fillers will last longer than others and it’s very important to choose the right filler for a particular area to achieve beautiful and natural looking results. We have a range of fillers that we love, trust and are suitable to treat all possible concerns.

Who can be treated with Dermal Filler?
In general, anyone with a suitable area to treat who is not pregnant, breastfeeding or allergic to any of the constituents of the product. A full medical history is taken at every consultation and prior to any treatment being performed.
Dermal Filler may not be suitable for you if you are prone to keloid scarring or have a history of Autoimmune disease. If you have recently been unwell in any way, had any type of surgery or dental procedure (including a hygienist visit) you will need to wait 4 weeks before your treatment to ensure any inflammatory process in the body has settled. This will reduce the risk of unwanted complications occurring. Please ask if you’re unsure.

What areas can be treated?
Most areas of the face and sometimes the body can be treated with filler. Areas include the temples, tear troughs (under eye circles), cheeks, nasolabial lines, marionette lines, accordion lines, lips to enhance or restore, jawline, chin augmentation, backs of hands, scar tissue and even earlobes!

What are the side effects?
Side effects can range from bruising through to more serious and permanent complications which are extremely rare. All possible risks involved with the procedure are discussed with you at length during your consultation.

How long does it last?
Fillers typically last anywhere between 8-18 months. This depends on the strength of the product used, the quality of your skin, the amount of product administered along with other factors such as lifestyle and the patient’s metabolic rate.

For some areas, Dermal Filler can be used in conjunction with anti-wrinkle Botox® injections, to not only achieve a better result but to also make the filler last longer.

How often should I have treatment?
Once the area being treated is at a place where you are happy with it (this may take a few sessions depending on the severity and your goals) to then maintain these results, treatments should be done yearly as a rough guide. This can vary from person to person.

Once you start do you have to keep going?
No, not at all. If you decide you don’t want to continue having filler treatments, results will wear off gradually and the treated area will go back to how it was prior. However, the treatment would have stimulated your own collagen so may even be slightly better. Clients often enjoy their filler results so much that they almost always want to continue but if for any reason you don’t want to or can’t, there is nothing to worry about.

Will I look worse once it’s worn off?
No, definitely not. We get asked this question often and the best way to explain it, is that when we have a treatment, we quickly get accustomed to our new refreshed look then when it wears off, it simply goes to back to what it was. This can sometimes make us think we look worse but it’s actually just that the treatment is no longer working.

I want to look natural and not overdone?
We pride ourselves on achieving natural results. Your face is our reputation! Most Lift Aesthetics clients are referred to us via word of mouth which we’re very grateful for. Our aim with facial aesthetics is to help you look and feel better. Our objective is to achieve this without it being obvious that a treatment has been performed – a “less is more” approach is key. The best result is one that has people telling you how well you look, not wondering if you’ve had something done.

Does it hurt?
It really depends on the area being treated and of course pain levels differ from person to person. Some clients will feel more discomfort than others however there are certain tools and techniques we can use to help minimise this as much as possible. These include local or topical anaesthetic (numbing cream), vibration and cooling the area.

Most clients tolerate the treatment well and some areas such as cheeks often don’t require any anaesthetic however lips are a more sensitive area so we like you to numb first where possible. You can purchase EMLA numbing cream (5g tube) from the pharmacy or ask your nurse for some before your appointment. 

Many dermal fillers also contain local anaesthetic, which makes the treatment even more comfortable.

Is “downtime” required following a treatment with Dermal Filler?
Some numbness may be felt for a couple of hours afterwards. Redness, swelling and/or bruising may be noticeable. While everything possible is done to avoid this, we always recommend that dermal filler be planned with respect to any upcoming engagements. We generally expect bruising and swelling to happen, if it doesn’t, great! but definitely be prepared incase.

Please do not book your filler treatment less than 2-3 weeks before a big event. Even if you have had treatment before and haven’t bruised, that is not a guarantee that you won’t bruise this time.

Is there anything I need to do to prepare for my Dermal Filler appointment?
2 weeks prior to your appointment, avoid all blood thinners and anti-inflammatory medication as long as this is ok with your GP – please check if you’re unsure.

Medications and supplements such as Aspirin, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Green Tea, St. John’s Wort, Omega 3/Fish Oils, Ibuprofen and Voltaren have blood thinning effects and can increase the risk of bruising and swelling after injections.

Do not consume alcohol at least 24 hours prior to treatment (alcohol may thin the blood and increase the risk of bruising)

Do not have treatment if you have been unwell, had any dental visits, vaccines, minor surgery or any other procedures within the last 4 weeks leading up to your appointment. You should avoid where possible the above for 4 weeks after your treatment also. This is because if there is an inflammatory process happening in the body, it may increase the risk of complications. This is very rare but it’s worth following to be extra safe.

Taking bromelain (from a health food shop or by eating fresh pineapple) before and after your treatment may help to reduce swelling and inflammation.

What do I need to do following the treatment?
For the rest of the day following your treatment it is recommended that:

  • Treated areas should not be touched.
    Make-up should not be applied for 12-24 hours. You can purchase a medical foundation from the clinic if you wish to have a foundation that you can use straight away and is suitable for covering bruises.
  • Avoid anything that can make bruising more likely (such as alcohol, anti-inflammatory meds, exercise, and extreme heat).
  • For 2 weeks afterwards avoid very hot or cold temperatures such as hot yoga, spas, saunas or direct sunlight. Ice can be used to help reduce swelling and bruising but do not keep it in the same spot for very long. Arnica can be applied or taken orally. Hirudoid cream applied to bruised areas may also help.
  • Do not have filler within 2 weeks of an overseas holiday. Complications are very rare but if it were to happen then you need to be around so we can help you.

If you have any further questions regarding Dermal Filler, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

What is Botox®?

Botox® is a purified protein derived from a naturally occurring bacteria called Clostridium Botulinum. It works by blocking the nerve signal to the targeted muscle which decreases muscle contractibility, causing the muscle to relax. If the muscles are not able to fully contract, it will prevent lines from becoming as deep in the first place. It will also soften lines that are already present, providing a refreshed and more youthful appearance. As your treatment wears off, the function of the muscle slowly returns over a 3-4 month period. It’s at this time your next treatment is required to maintain your results.

Is it safe?
Yes, it is considered to be a relatively safe treatment. It does come with some risks as do all medical procedures and these will be discussed with you at your consultation to ensure you are a suitable candidate. Botox® has been around for about 40 years and has been through all of the rigorous testing of the FDA. It was first used for treating blepharospasm (eye twitches) and spasticity to help relax muscles, treat migraines etc and is approved for use in toddlers with cerebral palsy in much higher doses than what is required for cosmetic use.

Who can be treated with Botox®?
Botox® is suitable for anyone with dynamic wrinkles (wrinkles that appear upon movement of the muscle – such as forehead lines from raising your eyebrows). You must be at least 18 years old. It is not suitable for women who are pregnant, breastfeeding or anyone that has previously had an allergic reaction to the product.

There are some rare neurological conditions that are contraindicated in the use of Botox®. To ensure you are a suitable candidate, a full medical history is taken at every consultation and prior to any treatment.

If you have a line or wrinkle that is already present when your face is at rest then it’s important to know that Botox® will soften this but it may not disappear completely. This is why the best time to start treatment is before you see the lines settle in permanently. Prevention is key! However, this doesn’t mean that if you have wrinkles already that it’s too late. We’ve seen great results for clients with wrinkles already present too. Your nurse will advise you on what sort of results to expect from your treatment at your consultation.

What areas can be treated?

  • Forehead
  • Frown
  • Eyes
  • Brow lift
  • Opening the eyes
  • Nose creases ‘bunny lines’
  • Gummy smile
  • Lip lines
  • Jaw slimming/facial shaping
  • Neck lines and protruding neck bands
  • Hyperhidrosis – Excessive axillary sweating
  • MicroBotox®

What are the side effects?

Common:
Redness and swelling are the most common side effects and occur directly post treatment, lasting up to 20 minutes or so.

Less common:
Bruising is always a possibility whenever needles are involved however it is not very common with this treatment. We recommend all clients have any treatment at least 2 weeks prior to any event to give their results time to settle in and for any healing required to take place.

Rare:
Allergic reaction
Infection
Headache
Ptosis (which is a slight asymmetry close to where you’ve had your treatment). This is temporary and will resolve. It is often more noticeable to you as opposed to others.
To prevent this happening, it is important to not rub the treated areas afterwards as this may move the product into other muscles. Washing your face gently is fine. Medical make up can be worn straight away and is available for purchase in the clinic or from our online shop. For your own make up, please wait at least 4 hours afterwards.

Please avoid facials or massages for 48 hours and hard exercise for 24 hours.

All risks will be discussed with you at your consultation prior to any treatment.

How long does it last?
On average the effects can last between 3-4 months, with most people noticing lines reappearing after approximately 3 months. The treatment wears off gradually during this time and won’t stay at the same level all the way throughout. The longevity of your Botox® will depend on your muscle type and activity, your lifestyle, which product was used and how much was administered.

In some cases, the continued use of Botox® will result in the need for less frequent treatments. This is due to the fact that the nerve endings may eventually start to regrow at a slower pace. For this to happen, regular 3 monthly treatments are required initially and although this is the case for most people, this can vary between individuals.

Once you start do you have to keep going?
No, not at all. If you decide you don’t want to continue having Botox® treatments, your results will wear off gradually and the treated area will go back to how it was prior. Clients often enjoy their Botox® results so much that they almost always want to continue but if for any reason you don’t want to or can’t, there is nothing to worry about.

Will I look worse once it’s worn off?
No, definitely not. We get asked this question a lot and the best way to explain it, is that when we have a treatment, we quickly get accustomed to our new ‘refreshed’ look. When it wears off, it simply goes to back to what it originally was which can sometimes make us think we look worse but it’s actually just that the treatment is no longer working.

I want to look natural and not overdone, is this possible?
At Lift, we pride ourselves on achieving natural looking results and this is our preferred aesthetic. Frozen, overfilled lips and faces are not our thing. Your face is our reputation! We want to get it right just as much as you do. We are arguably some of the most experienced Cosmetic Injectors Wellington has to offer. We have tried and tested it all and have a pretty good eye for what works and what doesn’t. Most of our clients are referred to Lift Aesthetics via word of mouth which we are so grateful for. Our aim with facial aesthetics is to help you look and feel better and to achieve this without it being obvious that a treatment has been performed.

Does it hurt?
Most people tolerate the treatment really well. Each injection is very quick and the needles that are used are very fine and short. Some areas can be more sensitive than others and pain levels will vary from person to person however we will do our best to make you as comfortable as possible. First time clients are understandably the most nervous about having their treatment but are usually quite suprised at how quick and easy it was.

Is “downtime” required following treatment with Botox®?
Generally speaking – no. There may be some minor swelling and redness immediately following treatment which should start to diminish after approximately 20 minutes. Most people go back to their normal activities straight away.

What do I need to do following the treatment?
For the rest of the day, it is recommended that:

  • Any treated areas are not to be touched.
  • Make up should not be applied for at least 4 hours (unless medical make-up is used).
  • Anything that can make bruising more likely, such as alcohol, exercise, and extreme heat should be avoided.

How long until I can see the results?
The results are not instantaneous, and everyone is different. You will probably start to notice a reduction in the lines upon movement after 5 – 7 days, with full effects being visible at approximately 2 weeks post treatment. Complimentary post treatment checkups are done for your first treatment and whenever deemed necessary for us to make sure all is well and that we are both happy. Occasionally adjustments are required and are only done after the 2-week mark to ensure it has reached full effect first.

If you have any further questions regarding Botulinum Toxin anti-wrinkle injections, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

What is a fat dissolving treatment?
Fat dissolving is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that involves injecting a substance called deoxycholic acid into areas of unwanted fatty tissue. It can be used anywhere on the body however the most commonly injected area is the submental region also known as the double chin. This procedure destroys the unwanted fat cells and helps to contour the jawline or wherever it’s injected.

How does fat dissolver work?
Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps to break down and absorb dietary fat. When injected into the treatment area, it works to destroy the fat cells, which are then naturally eliminated by the body.

Who is a good candidate for fat dissolving?
Fat dissolving treatment is suitable for adults who have small unwanted pockets of excess fat. For example, fat that is causing a double chin or a sagging jawline. It can be used on most areas of the body. 

How is fat reduction performed?
Deoxycholic acid is administered through a series of small injections into the excess fat. The number of injections required varies depending on the size of the treatment area.

Is it painful?
The injections may cause some discomfort, but most patients find the procedure to be tolerable. Numbing cream may be applied along with some local anaesthetic. Many patients rate the pain 2-3 out of 10.

How long does it take?
The treatment session typically takes around 30-60 minutes.

How many sessions are required?
The number of treatment sessions required varies depending on the amount of fat being treated and the patient’s individual response to the treatment. Most patients require between 2-4 sessions.

How long does it take to see results?
The results are typically visible 4-8 weeks afterwards and treatments are usually timed 8 weeks apart.

Are there any side effects associated with fat dissolving treatments?
Some patients may experience mild swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection site. In rare cases, more serious side effects such as nerve damage may occur. Any potential adverse effects will be discussed at your consultation and will also depend on what area is being treated. 

What should I do afterwards?
It is recommended that patients avoid strenuous activity for 24 hours and avoid consuming alcohol or blood-thinning medications for a few days. Cold compresses may be applied to the treatment area to minimize swelling. Swelling can be excessive for the first 24-48 hours after treatment for some but not everyone.

What is Profhilo®?
Profhilo® is a bio-remodeling, skin boosting treatment that is used to improve the texture, hydration, radiance and overall quality of the skin. It is made up of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps to hydrate and plump the skin.

How does Profhilo® work?
Profhilo® is used to treat skin laxity on the face, neck and body. It helps remodel wrinkled, sagging and crepey skin. It hydrates and has a stimulatory effect on the cells producing collagen and elastin which help tighten and firm the skin. The new collagen and elastin improve skin quality and provide a more radiant and youthful appearance.

Who is a good candidate for Profhilo® 
Profhilo® is suitable for anyone who has visible signs of aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of elasticity. It is also effective for improving the texture, glow, and hydration of the skin. It’s the perfect treatment to have one month prior to an event or for anyone just wanting to have beautiful skin every day.

How is Profhilo® administered?
Profhilo® is administered through a series of small injections into the skin. The number of injections required depends on the treatment area. The face will typically have 5-7 injection points per side, and the neck will have around 10 in total.

Is it painful?
The injections may cause some discomfort, but most patients find the procedure to be tolerable. Numbing cream and ice may be applied to the treatment area to minimize discomfort.

How long does a Profhilo® treatment take?
The treatment session typically takes around 20 to 30 minutes with the injecting part only about 5-10 minutes.

How many Profhilo® sessions are required?
The number of sessions required varies and depends on the patient’s individual response. It is recommended you have 2 initial sessions, spaced 4 weeks apart followed by a maintenance regime of a single treatment every 4-6 months. Occasionally 3 initial treatments are required for more damaged skins.

How long does it take to see results?
The results are typically visible after 3-4 weeks. Final results can take up to 3 months.

Are there any side effects associated with Profhilo®?
Some patients may experience mild swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection site. In rare cases, more serious side effects such as infection or allergic reactions may occur. All potential side effects will be discussed with you during your consultation.

What should I do after having Profhilo®?
After your teatment, it is recommended that patients avoid strenuous activity for 24 hours and avoid consuming alcohol or blood-thinning medications for a few days. Cold compresses may be applied to the treatment area to minimize swelling.

Can Profhilo® be used on other areas of the body?
Yes! Profhilo® is FDA-approved for use on the face, neck, décolletage, and stomach. We are also excited that Profhilo® Body is now available in New Zealand and we are one of the first clinics in Wellington to use it. This can be used on many different areas of the body so get in touch to find out more!

What is Hyperhidrosis?
Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition causing excessive or problematic sweating that goes beyond what is necessary to regulate body temperature. It is a condition that can negatively impact the person’s life and often clients find this treatment to be quite life changing. We treat this condition with Botulinum Toxin injections. 

What is Botulinum Toxin?
Also known as Botox®, it is a prescription medicine produced from a naturally occurring bacterium called Clostridium Botulinum. It is typically used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles but can also help treat several different medical conditions, including hyperhidrosis.

What is Platelet Rich Plasma – PRP?
PRP is a medical procedure that uses the patient’s own blood. The blood is processed to extract the concentrated platelets before re-injecting them into the patient’s body to promote healing and regeneration.

What is PRP used for?
PRP is used to treat a variety of medical conditions, including sports injuries, osteoarthritis, sexual dysfunction and incontinence. It is also used cosmetically for facial rejuvenation and hair restoration.

How does PRP work?
PRP works by injecting a concentrated number of platelets into the treatment area. It uses the patient’s own natural growth factors to promote healing and regeneration by stimulating the body’s natural repair process.

What areas can be treated with PRP?
We can treat almost anywhere on the face or body. The most commonly treated areas are the face, neck, decolletage, scar tissue and the scalp for hair thinning.

Is PRP treatment painful?
PRP can cause some discomfort, but most patients find the procedure to be tolerable. Some patients may experience soreness or stiffness at the injection site for a few days after the procedure. Numbing cream can be applied prior to your treatment.

What is Microneedling?
Microneedling is an advanced skin treatment that uses very fine needles to penetrate the skin. This creates a ‘controlled injury’ which then triggers the body’s natural healing response, stimulating new collagen.

How does Microneedling work?
The triggered healing process stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin cells to strengthen the skin. As a result, the skin begins to repair and rejuvenate which improves the appearance of skin texture, fine lines, redness, pigmentation and scarring. Correcting serums will be used during your treatment to help address your particular concern, followed by a soothing mask.

What are the benefits of Microneedling?
Microneedling is a great treatment for stimulating new and improved collagen tissue which reduces with age. Collagen cells give our skin support, strength, and structure. Here are some of the benefits of collagen stimulation:

  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and scars.
  • Helps to reduce pore size which smooths and improves skin texture.
  • Strengthens and thickens the skin which reduces the appearance of Rosacea and small blood vessels.
  • Reduces pigmentation.

Is it painful?
Microneedling can cause some discomfort, but most patients find the procedure to be tolerable. A numbing cream may be applied to the skin beforehand to minimize discomfort.

Are there any side effects associated with a needling treatment?
Some patients may experience redness, swelling, dry skin or mild bruising at the treatment site for a few days after the procedure. In rare cases, infection or scarring may occur.

How many sessions are required?
The number of sessions varies depending on the skin concern and the patient’s individual response. Most patients require between 4-6 sessions before going onto a maintenance schedule of just 2-3 times a year. A prescribed at home skincare regime is essential to maintain and enhance your results. 

How long does it take to see the benefits from Microneedling?
Most people notice an improvement in their skin after their first few treatments and the results continue to improve over the treatment course. Skin cells can take 28-45 days to regenerate, therefore results can take the same amount of time before they are seen. We recommend having 4-6 treatments every 5-6 weeks for optimal results.

What is to be expected after a Microneedling treatment?
Your skin may feel hot or sensitive after treatment, which is a normal response. The redness and/or swelling can last between 1-3 days. Avoid any exfoliation or retinol products for 1 week post treatment. Avoid makeup for 24 hours. Do not expose the treatment area to the sun. Make sure you wear an SPF30+ sunscreen daily. Avoid activity where your skin may encounter irritants or heat, e.g exercise, swimming pools, hot tubs and saunas for 48 hours.

Who is a good candidate?Microneedling may be a good option for individuals looking to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, uneven skin tone and texture.

What are PDO threads?
PDO (polydioxanone) threads are a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that involves inserting thin, dissolvable, suture like threads under the skin to firm and tighten. It is the same material used in dissolvable stitches which have been used for many decades during surgical procedures.

How do PDO threads work?
PDO threads work by strengthening the skin through the stimulation of collagen production. The threads are inserted into the skin, and as they dissolve, they promote the production of new collagen, which helps to firm and tighten. They can also improve skin tone and texture. It’s important to note that we do not use barbed ‘lifting’ threads as these are different and are more invasive. Our threads are purely used for their collagen stimulating properties.

What areas can be treated with PDO threads?
PDO threads can be used to treat various areas of the face, neck, and body.

How is the treatment performed?
A PDO treatment involves inserting the threads into the skin using a small needle. The needle is then removed, leaving the small dissolvable thread in place under the skin. The procedure usually takes less than an hour, depending on the area being treated.

Is it painful?
PDO threads are typically well tolerated by most patients. However, some discomfort or pain may be experienced during the procedure which can be minimised with the use of numbing cream and local anaesthetic.

How long does it take to see results?
Results are typically visible immediately after the procedure. However, this can be due to swelling and final results may take up to three months to develop as your collagen production increases.

How long do the results last?
Results can last for up to 12-18 months depending on the patient’s individual response. Treatments can be repeated 3 monthly until the desired results are achieved.

Are there any side effects with PDO threads?
Thread treatments are generally safe and have few side effects. However, some patients may experience swelling, significant bruising, or soreness at the injection site. In rare cases, more serious side effects such as infection or nerve damage may occur.

Who is a good candidate for PDO threads?
This treatment is suitable for patients who have mild to moderate aging skin and are looking for a non-surgical option to improve their appearance. It is not recommended for patients who have severe skin laxity and are wanting a significant lift.

What should I do after my treatment?
It is recommended that patients avoid strenuous activity for a few days and avoid touching or rubbing the treated area. A clean, cold compress may be applied to minimize swelling, and patients should follow their provider’s specific aftercare instructions.

Are there any contraindications for PDO threads?
Threads are not recommended for patients who have a history of autoimmune disease, blood clotting disorders, or active infections. It is important to discuss any medical conditions or medications with your provider before undergoing a PDO thread treatment.
