Blood is composed of: Red Blood Cells (oxygen), White Blood Cells (immunity, DNA, growth factors), platelets (tissue and vessels repair) all suspended in plasma (55% of blood composition which carries proteins, enzymes, hormones, etc).
Blood is composed of: Red Blood Cells (oxygen), White Blood Cells (immunity, DNA, growth factors), platelets (tissue and vessels repair) all suspended in plasma (55% of blood composition which carries proteins, enzymes, hormones, etc). PRP is obtained by taking blood from the patient; once the blood has been drawn it goes through a 2-stage centrifugation process separating blood cells from plasma. Platelet Rich Plasma is composed of platelets and white blood cells; This low percentage of extracted PRP is also referred to as “gold liquid”. This “gold liquid” is packed with naturally occurring living cells that work together to regenerate cells and repair damaged tissue.
The application of PRP is used for the treatment of
- Dermal lesions
- Wrinkles and lines
- Volume deficit in areas like cheeks and nasolabial folds
- Melasma and pigmented lesions
- Sexual dysfunction, etc.
Collagen and Elastin are “proteins” that are widely known not only for their commercial purposes in the beauty industry, but also for being a fundamental key to preserving our skin rm, plump and toned. As we age, especially after the age of 30, the production of collagen and elastin, as well as cell turnover significantly slow down resulting in:
- Development of new lines/wrinkles
- Sagging of the skin
- Loss of volume
- Dull skin
The innovations in cosmetic medicine have supported the development of new technologies and procedures that provide incredible results that only surgery could provide back in the day, even after just a single session with minimal to no downtime, or discomfort. This technologies work by delivering constant waves of heat deep into the tissue (skin), creating thermal damage with temperatures up to 70 °C (158 °F) causing.
cellular friction. This heat causes collagen contraction as well as denaturation leading to aggressive collagen synthesis. Optimal results are achieved 3-6 months after the initial procedure; collagen stimulation takes place gradually as the coagulated (ablated/vaporized/destroyed) tissue regenerates.
The number of treatments prescribed by our clinicians will depend on the selected combination of treatments, age, treated area, and specific characteristics of the patient. Several areas in the body may benet from the use of these procedures, including.
- Face and neck
- Eyelids, forehead, eyebrows
- Chest and abdomen
- Thighs and buttocks
At Makeover Aesthetics, clinicians make use of the most innovative, cutting-edge technology available in the market. The following modalities/procedures will be prescribed by themselves or combined, after a thorough evaluation and skin analysis is completed at one of our clinics.
Medical Camouflage vs tattoos and micro-pigmentation
Medical Camouflage is a procedure that has a different technique than of a tattoo or micro-pigmentation procedure.
The tattoo would mark the skin and it would not look natural.
Micropigmentation has vegetable pigments that are lost or change color.
Medical Camouflage on the other hand is a safe procedure that differentiates the concentration of the ingredients to achieve a natural and safe result.
It is important to respect a prudent time after-sun treatment and thus not cause damage to the healing.
- Convenient Procedure: Takes less than 30 minutes
- Small Volume of Blood Required: Better patient tolerance
- Best Value – highest volume PRP Yield: ~6 mL’s of PRP per 10 mL tube
- Optimum Platelet Recovery: 87% ± 10%
- Consistent platelet concentration – allowing for predictable performance
- Pure PRP: High-tech gel removes ~97.8% contaminating red blood cells
- No foreign components – Virtually eliminates the rise of adverse reactions
- Pyrogen Free
