Today, our patients want very good aesthetic results, to get them quickly and without discomfort. This category of minimally invasive aesthetic treatments is made outpatient, with local anesthesia, being safe treatments that give patients a face reconstitution, increased elasticity and skin tonicity, resulting in an antiaging effect!
Among the most requested procedures would be the combined therapies: PRP therapy, PDO threads lifting and hyaluronic acid injections, and not only the aforementioned. These can be easily combined with other well-known aesthetic procedures such as botulinum toxin injections, mesotherapy, dermabrasion, oxyjet, etc. In fact, an anti aging program addresses all changes in skin aging, but hyaluronic acid has a major role in restoring lost facial volumes, PDO threads are for tissue lifting, and PRP therapy for regeneration effect on skin and tissues.
The indication of these treatments begins when changes occur in the skin and tissues, if there is a slight gravitational loss (e.g. mandibular line, neck, eyebrows), but also loss of face volume (cheeks, lips, etc.) as well as skin texture at this level. Essentially, combining these therapies lifts tissues, restores volumes, improves skin texture by hydration and collagen synthesis. The average age is generally 30-55 years.
The advantages of combining these treatments are that they have immediate, cumulative and lasting effect; do not require hospitalization, recovery time is short, and the risk of complications is minimal.
Combined therapies have many effects: firstly of volume and hydration with hyaluronic acid that can be injected into any area of the face, correcting the volume changes (lips, cheeks, chin, etc.) but also improves fine, medium and deep wrinkles in different areas.
The firmness effect, with the help of PDO threads, which is obtained by forming new collagen around these threads placed under the skin, as a network. Although the threads will gradually dissolve, the new collagen formed around them will remain, keeping the effect of young skin in the areas where they were introduced, in addition to the lifting effect obtained by the Barb wires having fine teeth laid down along the threads. The procedure does not replace a surgical facial lifting, indicated where the skin surplus is over 1.5 cm. The idea is that in order to have beautiful and spectacular results, we must choose the right patients.
The procedure lasts between 30-45 minutes, including applying anesthetic cream to the skin.
Effects are immediately seen in the contouring and lifting procedure; in the case of firmness / wrinkle procedure, the effects begin to appear after 2-3 weeks. If at some point after a few months a refreshing effect is desired, this is possible and even indicated.
As an esthetician surgeon with a considerable number of patients and more than 20 years of experience, I can tell you that the degree of patient satisfaction with this procedure is high, both immediately and in the medium and long term in some cases. The purpose of these treatments is not only to improve the aesthetic appearance and to perform a therapy on the aging signs of the facial skin but also of prophylaxis – preventing and delaying these signs. It is obvious that how we age is not the same, now we have the option and the means to age beautifully!
