P.D.O Threading

What is P.D.O Threading?

PDO therapy is an effective cosmetic technique that lifts and tighten sagging skin tissues by inducing collagen production. It involves the implantation of fine, absorbable polydioxanone threads (similar to those used in medical suturing) into the subcutaneous layer of the skin using small needles. These threads remain implanted in the skin causing micro-injuries that stimulate collagen synthesis and tissue contraction. After 6-8 months, the threads will be absorbed into the body leaving new collagen in their place. Side effects are minimal but may include swelling and bruising that lasts 2-3 days, and patients can continue with normal activities immediately after.

A typical treatment involves placement of the desired number of threads, which may range from a single thread per side but can involve 50 threads or more to treat the face and neck. Various entry points are considered depending on the individual face shape and requirements. Threads which are used to reposition the skin will have the ends protruding after insertion and they are trimmed to below the level of the skin once the desired lift has been achieved. Smooth threads are anchored to lift and stimulate collagen. The lifting effect at this point depending on the areas being treated is almost instant

What does it Treat?

- Brow lift

- Sagging cheeks

- Nose to mouth folds

- Jaw line

- Neck

Results

You can expect an immediate lift to the treated area, but this will always relax somewhat once the initial swelling has settled down. Appearance is expected to gradually improve over a period of 2-3 months as collagen remodeling occurs.

Recovery

You wouldn’t want to plan any big social events during the first couple of days, whilst the results are settling down, but following this there is no reason why you shouldn’t fully resume to your everyday routine / social commitments.

How many treatments and pricing?

The minimum treatment we can offer is 5 threads per side of the face, this would be 10 threads in total for £100. 

Or we do 10 threads in each side, so a total of 20 threads for £180.

Fibroblast Plasma Treatment
Introduction

The Plasma treatment method is a revolutionary method for a perfect facial rejuvenation.  Plasma is a non - surgical technique, while the end results are comparable with soft surgery treatment without the surgical risks which are anaesthesia, stitches, swelling, long downtime, extensive bruising with possible complications.  Surgical methods are far more expensive and complicated.

Plasma works similarly to an ablative laser.  On a minute surface of the skin, accurately directed energy damages very specific skin cells to encourage regrowth and renewal.  This does not only improve the skin tone and texture, but can also reduce scarring, improve a number of common skin problems and increase skin contour.

Key Uses
  • ​​Eyebag/eyelid correction

  • Facelift and neck lift

  • Worry lines

  • Smile lines

  • Nasolabial lines

  • Labial lines

  • All types of lifting

  • Scar rejuvenation

  • Removal of warts, skin tags, freckles, sun spots and age spots

Advantages of Plasma vs Surgery
  • No injectable anaesthetic required

  • No cutting of the skin

  • No stitches required

  • Very low risk procedure (minimal risk)

  • Minimal side effects and downtime

  • Quick and easy procedure

  • Most patients can return to work the same day

  • No thinning of the skin

  • ​Significant cost saving.

What Is It?

Fibroblast skin tightening is a highly versatile and non-surgical procedure that is stunningly effective in skin tightening and rejuvenation. 'Fibroblasting' revolutionises the treatment, repair, lifting and rejuvenation of any area of the skin by improving and brightening skin tone, laxity and texture. 
It also significantly tightens loose skin and dramatically reduce, inflate and plump lines and wrinkles by drastically inducing collagen production and remodelling. Before treatment the topical anaesthetic is applied, ensuring a painless procedure.    A partial effect can be seen immediately after the treatment.  You need to wait for 4 -8 weeks to see the perfect results. This procedure can be carried out ONLY by a certified specialist.

How Does It Work?

The plasma treatment uses the fourth state of matter - plasma.  Tissues treated "sublimate" to avoid spreading unwanted heat to the surrounding areas.  The principle is to ionize gases in the air to create a small electrical arch, similar to a lightning bolt.  Dermal and epidermal areas which are affected by aesthetic problems, may be treated without spreading unwanted heat to the surrounding areas.

When the electrical arch - plasma - touches the skin surface, the heat widens, and is transferred into the epidermis all the way to the papillary layer which contains fibroblast cells.  Consequently, the excess skin is reduced and the result is comparable to lifting or wrinkle reduction.

How Long Does The Treatment Take?

First, the topical anaesthetic (cream) is applied, minimising the risk of pain and numbing the treated area which takes effect 20 - 40 minutes after the application.  The procedure itself does not last long, 20 - 60 minutes depending on the area.  The duration of the treatment (with anaesthetic application):  60 - 90 minutes.

Pre-Treatment

There is no special pre - treatment needed.  It is advisable that you do not apply any cosmetic product on the treated area (especially those containing alcohol).  During the consultation you should mention all recent surgical or aesthetic procedures.

Is It Painful?

Plasma is a non - invasive procedure with minimal level of pain.  It is virtually painless as the treated area is numbed prior to treatment.  Afterwards, the treated area is red (7 - 14 days) and some patients may experience some swelling, which can last up to 3 -4 days.  At the site of each spot, a small crust will form.  They should not be touched and you should allow them fall off naturally.  During the procedure, clients may feel some discomfort, not actual pain, depending on the treated area of the face/body.

Is It Right For Me?

With the help of Plasma instrument it is possible to treat various skin problems (acne), achieve the "lifting" effect of loose skin or correct or remove scars...

If you suffer from any of the mentioned procedures - Scalpa Fibroblasting is the right solution for you!

Is It Safe?

The treatment is very safe as it is a non - surgical procedure.  It has a negligible amount of posssible side effects and serious complications alike.  The procedure is based on the natural stimulation of skin regeneration, so the excesses which may be seen in the world of traditional surgery are not possible.

The Plasma treatment takes a very short time with stress on the aftercare, if the client neglects the instructions for aftercare, the treated area may suffer from:  inflamation, hyper - pigmentation, scarring.

What Are The Most Common Procedures?
  • Eyelid lift (upper, lower), facelift, neck lift...

  • Resurfacing of wrinkled areas (labial, nasolabial, worry lines, smile lines...)

  • Removal of different kinds of moles, skin tags...

  • Scar removal.

Side Effects

The Plasma treatment is an exceptionally safe procedure with virtually no side effects or they occur very rarely.  Possible side effects are inflammation, scarring or minor change in skin pigmentation, which is very rare.  It is highly important for each client to follow the instructions for aftercare closely.  Crusts which occur after the treatment are part of the treatment and will fall off after 4-5 days.  Minor swelling after treating the area around the eyes is normal and will disappear after 3 - 5 days, depending on the client's sensitivity.

After Care

Aftercare is one of the most important parts of the treatment.  Each client has to follow the instructions for aftercare closely to achieve perfect results:

  • Do not pick carbon crust;  it will fall off in a few days.

  • Clean the treated area with a non - alcohol disinfectant twice a day.

  • After the treatment continue applying aftercare cream on the treated area for as long as it is sensitive.

  • Avoid sauna, pools, solariums or any kind of exposure to activities which present risk for infection of the treated area.

  • Make sure to protect the treated area from direct sun until the skin is completely regenerated (2 - 4 weeks) - SPF 50 Eucerin

  • Avoid sunbeds. 

  • Do not apply products containing alcohol or other scents.

  • Until crusts fall off, you may apply colloidal silver to prevent inflammation.

  • Do not cover with plasters.

Can I Still Use Make Up?

Do not use makeup after the treatment, as it is generally not sterile.  First 5 - 6 days after the treatment, until the crusts fall off, use the antiseptic product and aftercare cream, applying it softly to the treated area.  When the crusts fall off, you may apply some makeup if necessary.

Results After Treatment?

The results are visible immediately after the treatment, but we have to inform you that the maximum results will be visible after 4 - 8 weeks (or earlier) when the skin enters the third phase of the healing - collagen and connective tissue growth.

 

How Many Treatments Are Required?

This depends on the state of the client's skin and the desired degree of correction.  The client is often satisfied after only one treatment, of course if, e.g.  the wrinkles are not very deep, but due to the simplicity of the procedure and the affordable price the clients may opt for two or even three treatments to achieve a perfect result.  The procedure may be repeated after the skin is fully regenerated,  so 6 - 8 weeks after the procedure.

 

How Long Will The Effect Last?

The results of the Plasma treatment are permanent and may be visible for years.  But we should acknowledge that the aging process is continuous and thus the skin ages every day after the procedure and this cannot be stopped.  The results of this method are permanent, but when we talk about mimic facial lines (worry lines) these may recur quickly because muscles are stronger than the skin and consequently the lines recur.
