Polaris Rejuvenation incorporates aesthetic treatments as part of our overall wellness and rejuvenation program for clients. For those who seek non-surgical facial rejuvenation, Dr. David Garcia offers several options, including Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy®, Botox®, Juvederm® and Voluma®.
Botox is considered to be the most popular cosmetic medical treatment in the US today. Its use first became well known in the 1980’s by Ophthalmologists who used it for spastic eyelid disorders. It has been proven to be safe, effective and economical by Oculofacial plastic surgeons for correcting wrinkles and lines and reshaping areas of the face. When Botox is placed in strategic locations around the face, wrinkles diminish or disappear. This makes the face more aesthetically pleasing. It is also worth noting that, in some studies, Botox has been shown to help relieve excessive sweating, migraines, and muscle contractions in the neck and eye areas.
Facial fillers in general are very popular as an alternative to surgical treatments for facial rejuvenation. The Juvederm and Voluma fillers work by safely restoring lost tissue volume under the skin, creating a smoothness where wrinkles and emptiness from aging typically appear (around the lips, eyes, neck and throat). Fillers come in an injectable gel form. Voluma is their FDA-approved product designed specifically for filling in the cheek area. Dr. Garcia helps you decide which filler or facial is right for you.
Depending on the fillers and treatment used, and the individual, facial rejuvenation results can last six months to one year.
ABOUT PRP FACIALS and PRP FACELIFT
Platelet rich plasma therapy (PRP) has been around for more than 30 years. It has been used in dermatology, dentistry, and orthopedics. This same therapy is now being applied to the face, as well as sexual organs. The uses have expanded because PRP is so natural and so effective. These therapies utilize your body’s own growth factors to stimulate new cell growth in the targeted area.
We start by taking a very small amount of blood from the patient and placing it into a high-tech centrifuge. This separates out the plasma into a highly concentrated form. This plasma is then used in the desired area, where it stimulates blood flow to the area and the production of new cells, new tissue. This is similar to what happens when our body suffers an injury and our natural healing process kicks in.
We apply a local anesthetic to the face, so there is no pain with the procedure. We use a micro roller, which makes many tiny holes in the skin to receive the plasma solution. This procedure only takes about 30 minutes once we have processed your plasma. The effects begin to be apparent almost immediately. In the PRP Facelift, the platelet rich plasma is strategically injected into anchor points in the face, as well as into volume depleted areas. There is no downtime, although there could be some minor swelling or bruising. Of course we do everything we can to prevent this. Typically, most patients are able to return to work or their normal daily activities right after receiving the PRP facelift.
A platelet rich plasma facial is the ideal method for achieving the following:
