PRP FOR LIPS

PRP is the most technologically advanced, safest, and most effective treatment for skin rejuvenation and an alternative to dermal fillers. By injecting your body’s own platelet rich plasma into the area being treated, it stimulates the area effectively and naturally, with no added serums or chemicals.
PRP is so effective for skin treatments that it is often called the “regenerative medicine”. PRP is a great option for those looking to restore the natural youth to their lips, and for those whose lips have lost plumpness overtime. PRP is also a great solution for those who are looking for an all-natural alternative to lip fillers.


INDICATIONS:
PRP as a lip filler is a long-term treatment for deflated lips, or those experiencing a wrinkling in the lips.


PROCEDURE:
For PRP a small amount of blood is withdrawn from your arm and spun it in a centrifuge to separate other cells from the concentrated platelet rich plasma (PRP). We begin by using a micro needling tool to create a series of controlled injuries to the lips, cheeks, forehead, or other area being treated. The series of ultra fine needles prick a small area of skin at a quick rate. These micro-punctures are just large enough for the PRP to enter the lips, and enable the body to use its own healing mechanisms to heal itself


RESULTS:
PRP stimulates your body to produce its own natural collagen, the results are gradual. You will start to see them about one month after your treatment, with full results at three months.
The new skin that is formed is healthier, plumper, and more youthful, creating a look similar to that of dermal filler.


FAQS:

CHEMICAL PEEL FOR DARK LIPS

The skin on the lips is among the most delicate on the face, and can become easily damaged with exposure to harsh weather, dehydration, sunburns, overuse of cosmetic products, extreme temperatures, and nervous habits like licking or biting.
Using chemical peels is another great option to consider for brightening and lightening of the lip. Chemical peels contain alpha hydroxy acid which helps to exfoliate the skin and also remove the dark layer of the skin easily. Chemical Peels can enhance your appearance by reducing darkness and uneven pigmentation.
This process can stimulate the skin’s natural renewal process, boost collagen and elastin and reveal plump skin cells which do not show dullness or pigmentation related to damage.
Some chemical peels have the ability to penetrate the skin barrier deeply and induce new skin cell turnover making it a top ingredient to both quickly exfoliate flaky lips and drive healthy new cells to the surface of the lips.
Using chemical peels may sometimes leave you with mild irritation and itchiness, but it will return to normal after some time.


INDICATIONS:
• Remove the dead layer of skin
• Rejuvenate the skin


PROCEDURE:
The lips

LASER TREATMENT FOR LIPS:

Skin coloration irregularities are relatively common. Pigmentation disorders like hyper pigmentation can make the skin appear lighter or darker. A variety of lasers are used for different types of skin pigmentation and skin types.
A laser can also be used to lighten blemishes or dark patches of skin. This works by either removing the outer layer of skin or damaging the cells that produce melanin.


INDICATIONS:
• BLEMISHES
• DARK SKIN
• HYPER-Pigmentation


PROCEDURE:
During the treatment laser energy is delivered to the target area in a series of short pulses. This energy is more efficiently absorbed by the dark cells containing the most pigment, and the energy causes the pigment to break down. The treatment may need to be completed over a course of sessions, depending on the extent of hyper pigmentation.
