How can injectables improve my appearance?
Injectables are aesthetic treatments that are administered via injection. Neurotoxins are among the most popular types of injectables.
BotoxⓇ is the most popular injectable treatment around the world, and for good reason. Botox delivers temporary improvements in facial wrinkling, lines, and folds. Renowned for a stellar safety track record and outstanding results, Botox is a great way to achieve a more youthful and well-rested appearance.
Dermal fillers are also wonderful aesthetic treatment tools. Most fillers are formulated from synthetic hyaluronic acid, which helps smooth and plump skin. There are many different types of dermal fillers, each created to add volume to different areas of your face.
In the hands of a skilled professional like Dr. Riftine, injectables can transform your appearance without the overly “tight” appearance of surgical treatments.
What is microneedling with PRP?
As the years pass, your skin naturally loses much of the collagen that creates the soft, smooth contouring of youth. Microneedling is a way to prompt your body to produce new collagen, which can improve the appearance of wrinkling, scarring, and loss of facial tone.
Treatments use a device covered in thin, sterile treatment needles. As these needles move across your skin, they create thousands of tiny channels into the deeper layers of your skin. Your body responds with a powerful healing reaction, forming new collagen and elastin cells.
Over the following weeks, you can expect to see improvements in overall skin texture and tone. Results are lasting, and you can come back in for additional treatments when you begin to see fine lines and wrinkling reappear.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a solution created from a small portion of your own blood. It is packed with concentrated platelets, which promote cell growth while reducing inflammation. Incorporating PRP into microneedling can boost results and speed healing.
Another way to use PRP is called a PRP face-lift. This option involves a series of PRP injections in areas of the face where additional volume and skin smoothing is desired. PRP injections can also help with hair loss by reducing scalp inflammation and promoting new hair growth.
What can be done to treat lichen sclerosus?
Lichen sclerosis is a rare condition that changes the skin around your genitals and anus. It can be incredibly uncomfortable, and also changes the appearance of affected tissues.
Treatment options include topical corticosteroids to reduce inflammation and speed healing. There are also prescription options that can help.
Steroid injections can be effective in reducing symptoms, and there are oral medications that might also help. Ultraviolet light treatment is another approach and can stimulate your body’s natural healing process.
