Wrinkled skin is a result of the natural process of aging. This condition is exacerbated by environmental factors like sun and wind exposure, as well as stress, smoking and other factors.
Anti-aging creams and topical products only treat the milder symptoms of wrinkled skin, such as damage to the skin’s uppermost layers.
The process of wrinkle treatment incorporates a combination of cosmetic procedures, including microneedling, growth factor therapies and intense pulsed light treatment. These therapies induce your body’s natural healing process and create a permanent reset of the aging process.
At Vita Cosmetic and Laser Clinic, we offer a wide variety of treatments, depending on your individual needs.
Microneedling treatment uses very fine needles to cause tiny punctures in the skin. These small contact points encourage the body to create a wound healing response and skin cell renewal. As your skin repairs, it triggers the production of new collagen and elastin fibres, resulting in an almost immediate plumping effect.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is a natural treatment that uses the platelets from your own blood to promote skin regeneration and stimulate the body’s healing abilities. .These activated platelets secrete and release at least 7 different growth factors that enhance the natural healing process of the skin.
During a PRP therapy treatment, a small amount of your blood is drawn into a sterile tube in the exact same manner as a standard blood test. The blood is then placed into a centrifuge and spun to separate the plasma and platelets from the other blood components.
After a few minutes, the PRP layer is removed and is ready to be reintroduced into the body. Using a very fine sterile needle, your medical practitioner will inject the PRP in and around the specific area to be treated.
The production of new collagen induced by the PRP treatment will brighten, rejuvenate and rehydrate the skin even after the first treatment.
IPL or Intense Pulsed Light is a light-based skin rejuvenation treatment that uses Intense Pulsed Light technology to treat a wide range of skin conditions associated with sun damage and aging skin.
IPL treatments use light energy that converts to heat, which breaks up the targeted cells below the skin’s surface without causing damage to the top layers of skin.
IPL treatments stimulate new collagen and elastin production, leaving your skin with an overall glow. These treatments can also be used to rejuvenate the skin from a textural standpoint. The result is clearer, tighter, younger-looking skin.
