The choice of treatments offered for skin aging can be baffling. Dr Philip Frost at Face Value is finding his clients are seeing great results from two specialist treatments in particular.
The new kid on the block is the MINT Thread Lift®. Unlike the invasive permanent threads of the past, the MINT Lift® is a minimally invasive procedure that uses absorbable threads to redefine and restore lost elasticity and volume in the face.
It does two things; firstly, the threads cause tension in the skin giving an immediate lifting effect. Secondly, they stimulate the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid which creates firmer skin. While results can be seen immediately, improvements continue with full results seen after 6-12 weeks and lasting around 12 months.
The treatment is great for men and women who are showing signs of aging but do not want to undergo a surgical face lift. Put simply, it’s a non-surgical facelift that can create beautiful, natural looking results. If it is natural you are seeking, then nothing could be more so than using your own platelets to accelerate tissue regeneration and repair. This is where PRP comes in. Standing for Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP involves taking a sample of your blood, concentrating the platelets from that sample and reinjecting those concentrated platelets back into the body. The platelets contain numerous growth factors which will stimulate collagen synthesis and skin rejuvenation.
It is great for tired and dry skin, skin laxity, wrinkles, dark circles under the eyes, and overall texture and tone improvement. The usually difficult to treat areas such as neck and décolletage do particularly well with this treatment. Face Value uses the RegenLab PRP system which offers the Cellular Matrix option of combining hyaluronic acid with the platelets to give added immediate hydration. Both the MINT Lift® and PRP are fabulous options for rejuvenating the face and neck, and can be used in conjunction with dermal fillers, anti-wrinkle treatments and skin needling to keep you looking your best, at any age.
