Frequently Asked Questions About Anti Aging Treatments

PRP Therapy

1.Does Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment hurt?

The PRP treatment, also known as the “PRP Facelift” is a popular skin rejuvenation method that is virtually painless. In order to help trigger the natural process of collagen production, your skin will be painlessly treated with an advanced medical micro-needling gun to inject platelet-rich plasma and rejuvenate the skin.

2.How much downtime is required for a PRP procedure?

PRP treatment has become largely popularized for two significant reasons: natural results and minimal downtime compared to other procedures. The entire procedure takes approximately 30 minutes. And although there is minimal downtime with this treatment, you will be asked to stay out of the heat for 24-48 hours following the procedure and to avoid washing the treated area with water until the next day. Some minor bruising and swelling might occur.

3.Can the treatment be repeated?

As far as PRP is concerned, some people are likely to achieve the best results from just one treatment. Others may require more treatments to achieve the same results. Furthermore , some doctors may recommend a combination treatment like PRP+Laser Genesis Rejuvenation/Laser Spectra Peel for optimum results.

4.Are there any side effects?

In exception for light swelling (which will go away a few days after the procedure), there are no side- effects. PRP treatment uses your own body’s physiological factors that are responsible for growth to treat aging problems. Therefore, there is very little chance of your body rejecting the treatment. The “PRP Facelift” can be applied all over the body, including your limbs and stomach—not just on your face.

5.How many PRP treatments are necessary?

You will notice improvement in skin tone and texture within three weeks. It is recommended that you receive three PRP treatments performed four to six weeks apart to get the desired results. We also recommend a yearly follow-up treatment to maintain the youthfulness of your treated skin.

6.How does PRP therapy differ from other injections or fillers?

During PRP therapy, the centrifuged platelet-rich plasma is injected into your skin for total rejuvenation, via collagen growth, as opposed to individual fine line or wrinkle improvement using hyaluronic acid fillers. PRP therapy helps to fill areas which otherwise cannot be reached or aren’t safe to fill using other fillers or injections.

7.What’s the difference between applying PRP with needle injections and with micro-needling?

The results of PRP with micro-needling are better than those achieved using needle injections. Micro-needling is less painful and requires comparatively less down time. Moreover, it allows for complete PRP penetration into more planes of the skin as opposed to other injections where it’s isolated to one area.

PRP Therapy for Hair Loss

1.How does platelet-rich plasma treat hair loss?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy helps treat hair loss using a mesogun to create microscopic holes in the scalp. Then, platelet-rich plasma is injected into the deeper layers of the scalp. This stimulates the existing hair follicles to promote new hair growth once again.

2.Is the PRP therapy procedure painful?

The level of pain all depends on each patient’s tolerance level. Some people say it feels like a hot massage, while others find it very painful. If you have sensitive skin, it is recommended to use a numbing gel or topical anaesthesia one hour before the procedure. This will help reduce the pain considerably. As an alternative, you can request nerve blocks for better pain control.

3.How safe is this procedure?

PRP therapy does not pose any risk of allergies, hypersensitivity, or foreign-body reactions because it uses a patient’s own concentrated platelets. It is a safe choice to treat hair loss for many patients.

4.How long does one session take?

One session can be performed in about half an hour, so you can have the treatment done on your lunch break and go right back to work immediately afterwards.

5.Is this hair loss treatment in Toronto approved by the FDA?

Although PRP therapy is not approved by the FDA, it is still commonly used as a safe and effective treatment for many patients.

6.PRP therapy for men or PRP therapy for women? Who is a better candidate?

Thanks to the nature of PRP therapy, it is equally effective in both male and female patients. However, it does work best with patients who have diffuse thinning and miniaturized hair.

7.How long will PRP for hair loss take to generate results?

The response time for each patient varies. It can generally take three to four appointments before patients see results. Treatment is repeated every one or two months. Some patients may need extra maintenance appointments once a year or so, depending on the severity of their hair loss. On average, patients notice the first sign of results after three months of treatment.

8.Is there any follow-up care during PRP therapy treatment?

There is no downtime after your half-hour PRP therapy treatment, but it is strongly recommended that you not use any irritating substances like shampoo 12 hours before and after the procedure. It is also recommended to avoid using aspirin-type products for pain relief. Other than that, there are no additional follow-up care recommendations.

9.Are there any long-term side effects of this procedure for hair regrowth in Toronto?

PRP therapy for hair restoration is safe and natural because the procedure uses concentrated particles of your own blood and distributes them back to the areas where they are needed. This means the particles will not be rejected by your immune system. The technicians at our anti-aging hair rejuvenation clinic in Toronto use sterile tools for each patient, so there is no possibility of an infection, allergy, or hypersensitivity. That said, many patients do experience some redness, bruising, or headaches, which can be relieved with routine analgesics.

Skin Tag Removal

1.Will skin tags grow back?

Not necessarily. The skin tag removal procedure involves the use of a laser that is targeted at the area to be treated.

This “lunch time” laser treatment is so effective and risk-free that there is little to no downtime. As a common precaution, you will need to wear a sunscreen for at least six weeks post-procedure.

Laser Hair Removal

1.How should I prepare for the procedure?

Be aware of non-medical laser hair removal practices in spas and salons. Choose only an industry certified institution for your laser hair removal. You should have an initial consultation with the doctor as they review your medical history and discuss the procedure. While preparing for the treatment, stay out of the sun and avoid common hair removal methods, such as shaving, waxing, plucking and electrolysis.

2.What can I expect after the procedure for laser hair removal?

Each laser hair removal session lasts about 10 to 20 minutes. You might feel your skin heat up during the procedure due to the “laser killing” of your hair roots. However, it does not last long. The doctor might apply a gel to the treated area to keep your skin cool after the treatment. Expect to leave the clinic with smooth, gorgeous and hair-free skin.

3.Are the results permanent?

The results will vary according to the treated area of your body. For best results, four to 10 treatments taken four to six weeks apart are recommended. Although some professionals believe the possibility of hair regrowth, our powerful industry lasers—220v—almost nullify that possibility.

Spider Veins Removal

1.What can I expect after a laser vein removal treatment?

In most cases, one to two sessions are all that is required to remove the spider veins. You can return to your regular routine following the simple laser treatments and the recuperation time is very short. When treating larger varicose veins in the legs, however, you may be asked to wear compression stockings. In this case, a duplex ultrasound may be used during a follow-up visit to assess the success of the treatment.

2.What type of laser is used to eliminate spider veins?

Our clinic uses the FDA approved Cynosure Apogee Elite laser, which has brought about some amazing results. The laser targets the spider vein, causing it to collapse and forcing the body to repair the area.

Microdermabrasion

1.Which areas can be treated with microdermabrasion?

Almost every area of your body can be rejuvenated, including the face, neck, shoulders, chest, back and limbs. Our microdermabrasion systems have the polishing action of diamond chips and the cleaning action of a vacuum.

2.What sort of follow-up care is needed after microdermabrasion?

Since your skin is sensitive after the procedure, it is important to avoid the sun, swimming pools and substantial exercising for the first few days and apply sunscreen for the first 48 hours after treatment. You may be required to follow-up after the treatment based on the doctor’s preference and most importantly, the depth of your skin’s peel.

Chemical Peel

1. What are the pre-treatment protocols of a chemical peel?

Make sure to cleanse and moisturizing your skin twice a day and apply sunscreen to your skin before heading outside. Many doctors recommend using ProDerm products as pre-treatment to chemical peels.
