Carbon Laser Skin Peels is a proven way to assist reduce wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, and other flaws as well as tighten Skin, balance tone and remove the outermost layers of the Skin. But because lasers vary widely in how they act on your Skin, it is hard to know where to start when investigating treatment—even the most perfunctory search reveals a slew of competing devices and methods. The regenerated Skin is normally smoother and less wrinkled than the old Skin. Carbon laser Peels have no downtime, does not require numbing, and clients can return to daily life after their procedure.
IPL (intense-pulse-light) PhotoFacials have become common, as it decreases fine lines and wrinkles by encouraging the production elastin and collagen, giving skin tightness and flexibility. Also, PhotoFacials can be used to treat neck and chest redness, as well as remove sun spots suggesting a fresh look. Most like this procedure as it is noninvasive, has no downtime, and clients return to their personal activities right after treatment.
Erectile Dysfunction takes place when a man can’t get or keep an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse. It can be a sign of a physical or psychological condition. Occasional erectile dysfunction is not uncommon, and many men experience it during times of stress. Regular erectile dysfunction although, can be a sign of health problems that need cure. It can also be a indication of emotional or relationship difficulties that may need to be addressed by a professional.
You may need to use a mix of treatments, including Shockwave Therapy and Platelets Rich Plasma (PRP) Penis shot, and possibly testosterone injections for long term solution. In our practice we combine “Penis Shockwave therapy” to generate new blood vessels to increase blood flow into the penis, as well as inject PRP or Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) into the penis “known as Penis Shot”, to further stimulate collagen production of penis wall and keep the penis blood pressure maintained during erection.
PRP Therapy (platelet-rich plasma) is a common treatment that uses the patient’s own blood cells to rejuvenate and enhance the Skin. The plasma in the PRP accelerates the patient’s stem cells naturally and “wakes them up”, stimulating produce of collagen, leading to a healthier, younger-looking appearance and rejuvenation.
PRP gets activated to become a gel like substance within 30minuts by mixing with Calcium solution, or on its own inside the body within 2-3 hours, allowing for longer procedures time.
PRF (platelet-rich fibrin) is believed to be the next generation in PRP Therapy. PRF includes very high concentrations of fibrin, white blood cells, and stem cells found in our bloodstreams. After spinning blood for 5 minutes at a low speed, PRF is created and ready to be injected as a liquid. PRF becomes a gel-like substance within another 4 minutes limiting the procedure time per injection. Side effects are virtually nonexistent because the body is unlikely to reject its blood.
In our practice, we use PRP and PRF injections for various procedures, including Hair Growth regeneration, Penis Rejuvenation, Intimacy repair “Vulvar shot,” PRF injections for under eyes circles, as well as Radiofrequency (RF) micro-needling for Scar and Stretch mark improvement, Skin rejuvenation, using “VIVENCI RF Micro Needle” or traditional microneedling pen.
SCULPT is a cosmetic device used to Shape-Up your summer looks and get your noninvasive body shaping and contouring. This process activates your muscles 20,000 times in 30 minutes, lifts and tones your body by building muscles by 16%, and reduces unwanted fat by about 19%. For best results, we advised a total of 4 meetings (1 or 2 times per week), with concurrent use of a low calorie and high protein diet. The effects become noticeable 2-4 weeks after the last session and last about six months.
PRP scalp injections promote natural hair growth by boosting blood supply and growth factors to the active hair follicle, prolonging the growing level of the hair cycle, improving the thickness of the hair shaft, and avoiding the thinning of hair follicles.
PRP (platelet-rich-plasma) therapy for hair loss is composed of three steps, in which a person’s blood is drawn, processed by spinning in the centrifuge, and then injected into the scalp. PRP stimulates new hair growth during hair restoration procedures and thickens the hair in areas where your hair has begun to thin. This procedure has revolutionized hair restoration by reducing surgical procedures and naturally reinvigorating hair growth with minimal downtime. Additionally, we combine this treatment with weekly Red Light Therapy for 15minutes to push the sleeping hair follicles into an active growing stage, thus maximizing the effects of PRP the was injected.
We can also use PRF (platelet-rich-fibrin) injection instead for smaller hair loss areas or as dual PRP and PRF therapy for large areas of hair loss.
Treatment with PRP micro-needling pen starts by applying a topical numbing cream on the face. Then blood is taken from the patient’s arm into tubes and spun in a centrifuge to split the red and white blood cells from the plasma and platelets. This middle fluid layer is the PRP having enriched platelets aspirated into the syringe for the procedure.
Next, an esthetician performs the micro-needling portion of the treatment. At the same time, she applies PRP topically all over the Skin, and a micro-needling pen makes the PRP into the Skin delivering the growth factors into micro-channels. PRP helps the body’s natural healing process and stimulates new collagen and elastin production for skin rejuvenation. Alternatively, PRF micro-needling can be used if the area to be used is not too large.
VIVENDI “RF Micro-Needling” uses 64 or 25 pin gold plated needles that deliver Radiofrequency (RF) energy into the Skin, stimulation collagen production and skin tightening. It can also be used for Cellulite reduction and Stretch mark reduction. It is slightly intrusive and normally warms the skin tissue at about 1.5mm depths on the face, but can reach up to 3.5mm depths on the body regions. To increase the effects of VIVENCI “RF Micron Needle”, we apply PRP or PRF to the Skin after the process to further promote the collagen production. This cosmetic method is done after 45 minutes of Skin numbing with a topical anesthetic to reduce pain and discomfort.
Compared to a traditional micro-needling pen, “VIVENCI RF” has minimal peeling and almost no downtime. The most common side effect is three days of mild redness, which solves on its own. Results become slowly more and more apparent within six months. We recommend three treatments one month apart for best results, for the results to last at least three years or up to 6 years.
N-Kontur is a noninvasive Bipolar Radiofrequency (RF) device that is great for those clients who don’t want any needles going into the Skin but want to have Skin tightening with RF heat that is tough enough to reach deep enough and stimulate collagen and elastin from outside. We used vegetable glycerin oil as a conductive medium between the Skin and the transducer. This procedure shows noticeable results after eight weekly treatments, but some people may have been satisfied with six weekly sessions.
HIFU Skin-Lift & Lipo-Slim
HIFU Skin-Lift is a concentrated ultrasound using ultrasound heat to promote collagen and elastin, producing Skin tightening and skin lift. It is a noninvasive cosmetic procedure used on the face, upper neck, arms, abdominal stretch marks, cellulite reduction, and effectively reduces Sagging Skin.
On the other hand, HIFU Lipo-Slim is a noninvasive cosmetic process using focused ultrasound for slimming. In this process, ultrasound heat is used to destroy the mid-tissue fat cells and accomplish localized slimming.
Aged Skin is described as thin, dry, and pale, with visible wrinkles and decreased elasticity. Mesotherapy, sometimes referred to as “biorejuvenation” or “biorevitalization,” is a technique used to rejuvenate the Skin through intradermal injection of a “multivitamin solution, minerals, oligopeptides, and hyaluronic acid” that improve aging Skin by stimulating fibroblasts and facilitate cell-to-cell communication, resulting in increase collagen and elastin production.
We offer various kinds of products for bioreviataliztion mesotherapy, as well as MesoGold serum complex, MesoGold Peptide Blends, as well as PRP mesotherapy. “MesoGold serum complex” consists of (hyaluronic acid, 18 amino acids, five minerals, anti-aging peptide, anti-oxidant, vitamin-B2). “MesoGold Peptide Blend” included the extra of oligopeptides making the histological tissue effects related to PRP mesotherapy effects.
Fibroblast Plasma Pen is a non-surgical method for skin tightening and lifting the face and body with a plasma apparatus. Fibroblast Plasma Pen generates micro-traumas in the Skin (dermis and epidermis) by creating tiny dots in the tissues without open wounds. Small blood clots form over the treatment dots and become covered with small scabs on the top. Within the next 3 months, collagen type-I is produced, replacing the old loose type-III collagen, resulting in increased elasticity, skin tightening, and skin rejuvenation.
Treatment Day: Numbing of the Skin will be done when you arrive at the appointment with topical triple anesthetic “BLT cream” and left for 45 minutes, known as Benzocaine/Lidocaine/Tetracaine (BLT) cream. Then Fibroblast Plasma pen dots will be created very rapidly over the Skin to decrease the discomfort time.
Recovery Days 1-3: As dots heel, tiny little scabs appear on the treated area. They don’t hurt but can itch a little bit as they heal. We recommend topical creams to decrease itching. Avoid picking the dots as the scabs begin to lift and darken between days 2 and 3. Recovery Days 4-5: The tiny scabs fall off and leaving little pink dots on the Skin, and the itching decreases to very minimal. After scabs fall off, you can start wearing your regular makeup. Recovery Days 5 and after: The Skin continues to heal starting the process of collagen formation for the next 3 months, but some improvement in wrinkles are seen in 1 week.
