Who Has PRP Therapy?

Platelet Rich Plasma Rejuvenation appeals to clients who seek a more natural approach to skin rejuvenation. Even younger women and men can receive the treatment. Used to treat acne scarring it also is a preventative measure against facial ageing.

PRP treatment is safe, using your blood which is centrifuged to produce a platelet-rich plasma. The platelets are naturally rich in growth factors, essential ingredients to switch your fibroblasts on to produce new collagen. This plasma is then re-injected back into your skin.

What Does PRP Facial Treat?

By the time we are 20, we are losing 1% of our skin’s collagen per year. This slow loss of collagen contributes to facial ageing. PRP therapy is a natural method to replenish your skin collagen stores. Platelet Rich Plasma helps prevent or reverse wrinkles and lines as well as other skin texture concerns.

PRP injections are used to rejuvenate your skin texture and tone using your own body’s cells. PRP treatment is employed in areas where the appearance of the skin has deteriorated notably sagging, sun-damaged or thinning skin. Platelet Rich Plasma rejuvenation is often used in combination with prescription vitamin A to kick start your skin’s vital repair ability.

redirectedRosacea Treatment Brisbane | Laser Treatment For Rosacea and Facial Redness

Rosacea treatment involves reducing the redness as well as any underlying skin inflammation and involves two different approaches. Reducing facial redness require intense pulsed light or laser treatment for rosacea. Reducing the inflammation involves a combination of eliminating aggravating factors, skin products, as well as skin treatments to help settle the underlying inflammation.

What Is Rosacea?

Rosacea initially starts as facial flushing and progresses as surfaces capillaries, and blood vessels become permanently dilated. Damage to the lymphatic drainage of the skin from recurrent inflammation causes thickening of the skin. Left untreated rosacea progresses.

Rosacea Treatment Overview.

IPL can be used to reduce the facial redness of rosacea. Reducing the inflammation underlying it requires other measures and often combinations of approaches is required.

Laser Treatment for Rosacea.

Ipl or laser treatment for Rosacea reduces excess damaged blood vessels on your face and hence reducing facial redness. Most commonly IPL light therapy is indicated rather than laser treatment for rosacea. Although most people frequently refer to IPL treatment as laser treatment, they are different.

  • A series of IPL treatments is advised for initial settling of the redness though this is dependent on your response.
  • The majority of people with rosacea respond to IPL treatment.
  • In some cases a maintainence course is prescribed.

Q. When would laser treatment for rosacea become the first choice?
A. If there where large dilated vessels greater than 1mm in thickness.

What to expect with IPL treatment of Rosacea.

  • IPL take 20-30 minutes to perform.
  • The face tends to be redder initially after treatment as the IPL penetrates and irritates the offending capillaries.
  • This tends to settle in a couple of hours though in some with sensitive skin it can persist a couple of days.
  • Mineral makeup can be worn the next day.
