Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF)
by Carol Calma
Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) is an all natural solution that can treat common areas that show the first signs of aging like under-eye hollows and deflated cheeks. PRF enhances volume but it’s real purpose is skin rejuvenation: skin tightening, improved texture and quality and collagen stimulation. This is available as an injection or part of micro-needling.
For more information and to see if PRF is right for you, call/text Jill at 708-541-9191 to schedule a consultation with Carol.
Thread Lift - Price Varies
Thread treatments are a natural way to lift and stimulate collagen and elastin. Whether you want a natural lift (no fillers) or want to continue to slow down the effects of aging in between filler, threads are a good treatment. It is best to use thread treatments when you first start to see the signs of saggy skin.
To perform the thread treatments the face is divided into three sections. Only do one section at a time and most patients focus on one area of concern.
1. Eyebrow Lift - for sagging eyebrows
2. Mid Face Lift - to gently lift the cheeks which can move any eye contouring up and gently pulls the cheek up
3. Jowl Lift - corrects mild sagging at the jawline
When Carol performs any thread treatments after the initial treatment (lift) she will see you in two months to touch up the threads to ensure you have received the desired results.
“Awesome! Highly recommend. It lifted my cheek area and tightened my face to create a youthful appearance.”
Medical Micro-Needling Treatments
When your skin is healthy it will look its best. Skin Rejuvenation supports healthy skin. Medical micro-needling is an excellent skin rejuvenation treatment. It is used both preventatively - to slow the aging process, or correctively - to improve age-related skin issues.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatments
PRP Eye Treatments
This natural treatment using your plasma regenerates extra cells and harnesses the healing power of your own blood. It will improve skin quality, eliminate eye hollowness, or reduce under-eye puffiness. A series of treatments is recommended for best results.
PRP Facial Injections
These injections are recommended in areas of your face where you are starting to see the signs of aging. As a natural skin rejuvenator, they improve your concerns while slowing down the signs of aging.
DIMINISH THE DOUBLE CHIN
KYBELLA® is administered as a series of injections to the treatment area under the chin, destroying fat cells and producing gradual results. Everyone's chin profile is different, the treatment is tailor to you. The number of treatment sessions will vary based on the amount of fat under the chin and your treatment goals.
Improves droopy eye lids
If you have seen changes in your face as you’ve aged, - volume loss, saggy skin, wrinkles, but do not want to undergo facial surgery, then an alternative is Facial Balancing. This rejuvenates and restores a youthful appearance using anatomical knowledge and artistic vision to enhance the balance of the face. Facial balancing and contouring focuses on improving the definition of one or more parts of the face. Each patient receives an individualized treatment strategy, because everyone’s face is unique.
Enhancements may include smoothing away wrinkles, creases and folds especially in the upper third of the face. Also adding volume to mid face and lips and defining the lower third of the face. Enhancements are achieved using dermal fillers, neurotoxins (Botox, etc), PDO threads, and collagen stimulating Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) applied to your face. The end result is an enhanced facial structure with a restored appearance.
