Is there a guarantee?

No surgeon can guarantee perfection in a surgical intervention. However, if the result is not completely satisfactory, a touch-up procedure may be an option.

Are touch-up procedures common?

Touch-up procedures are performed to address any issues that did not meet the desired outcome. They may be necessary due to complications during the post-operative period or poor healing. However, they are not common if the patient is satisfied with the initial result. They are more frequent among patients with unrealistic expectations.

Does cosmetic surgery improve self-esteem?

Absolutely. When we feel better about our appearance and overcome any insecurities, our self-esteem improves.

Is it expensive?

The cost can vary greatly depending on the procedure, but it is generally affordable for most people if they truly desire it. It is actually much more costly to purchase a car or go on a specific trip, or even dine at certain restaurants or buy certain clothes. However, it is worth mentioning that they offer financing options for up to 3 years without any interest, which is a great help for many individuals.

PDO Threads
What is PDO thread lift and how does it work?

The PDO thread lift procedure involves the insertion of absorbable polydioxanone threads into the subcutaneous layer of the skin using tiny needles. These threads stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which helps repair any microinjuries caused by their placement. After 6 to 8 months, the threads are absorbed into the body, leaving behind new collagen.

How does a PDO thread lift work?

Similar to dissolvable sutures, polydioxanone threads are inserted into the sub-dermal skin layers to lift tissue and tighten the skin. This process is repeated as needed, with two or three threads typically used for each treatment area. The threads stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, resulting in additional lifting and tightening benefits.

Who is a good candidate for a PDO thread lift?

Ideal candidates for PDO thread lifts are individuals who are at a healthy weight and have mild to moderate skin sagging and wrinkles around the mouth, nose, chin, or jaw. Those with thin or excessively sagging skin may not be suitable candidates.

The release of growth factors accelerates the healing process, resulting in softer fine lines, tighter skin, and improved tone and texture.

How is PRP administered?

PRP treatment involves drawing a fraction of blood from the patient and collecting it in a syringe. This blood is then spun in a special centrifuge to separate its components. The platelet rich plasma is then reinjected into the skin or micro-needled back into the skin.

How long does a PRP treatment take?

A typical PRP treatment takes around one to two hours to complete. The duration depends on whether the PRP is administered through injections only or if micro-needling is also involved. This timeframe includes the additional 30 minutes required for blood collection and centrifugation, as well as the application of topical numbing cream.

Do PRP injections hurt?

While undergoing PRP injections, some patients may experience mild discomfort, such as a burning or tingling sensation. However, this sensation typically subsides within a few minutes after the PRP is injected. To ensure our patients' comfort, we apply topical numbing cream and provide ice to alleviate any discomfort throughout the entire PRP treatment.

When will I see results from a PRP treatment?

Patients usually notice a tightening effect and a more even skin tone within a week or two after PRP injections. These results continue to improve for up to six months following the treatment.

How long do the results of PRP injections last?

The results of PRP injections can last for weeks after treatment. However, individual results may vary depending on the quality of the Platelet Rich Plasma and the patient's lifestyle. While we cannot stop the aging process, we can slow it down. Proper at-home skincare maintenance can help extend the results of PRP injections.

What areas can be treated with PRP injections?

Technically, PRP can be used to treat any area of the body. However, for cosmetic purposes, PRP is most commonly used to treat the face and neck.

Is there any downtime associated with PRP?

There is no downtime associated with PRP injections. However, it is normal to experience redness in the treated area, which typically lasts from one to 24 hours. Some patients may also experience mild swelling. For this reason, some patients prefer to schedule their PRP treatment towards the end of the week, allowing them to recover over the weekend. The healing time varies from patient to patient and may be longer if PRP injections are combined with micro-needling.

How many PRP treatments will I need?

While results can be seen after a single treatment, the exact number of treatments needed varies from patient to patient. In general, 2-3 treatments are recommended, but some individuals may require more.

Are there any side effects or risks associated with PRP injections?

PRP injections for aesthetic procedures are generally safe for most individuals. There are very few contraindications for PRP injections, and the most common side effects include mild to moderate swelling and redness.

Who is not a candidate for PRP injections?

During your consultation, a thorough assessment will be conducted to determine if you are a suitable candidate for PRP injections. Patients with certain health conditions may not be eligible for PRP injections, and pregnant patients are also not candidates for this treatment.
