Skin aging and visible destruction happens incrementally. Collagenizing TM is an FDA approved fourth generation non-invasive technology used to rejuvenate skin from inside, without needles. The Collagenizer uses a proprietary Predictive Permeation TM using electromagnetic energy to the face, neck or chest to rejuvenate skin from the inside to stimulate collagen synthesis. It replenishes the intradermal losses of connective tissue that manifests as wrinkles and makes the skin appear old and lacking nourishment. It builds peptides and collagen, hyaluronic acid, elastin and peptides deeper below the skin to result in a healthy glow. This treatment rejuvenates mature skin as it firms, tightens and smooth superficial lines, wrinkles and even dark spots.
Patients instantly notice a reduction in lines and wrinkles, refined skin elasticity, resculpted tissue lifting, and a noticeably youthful appearance immediately following treatment.
*It is often recommended to have a series of 3 treatments over 2-3 months for optimal results.
Botox TM and Dysport TM
Botox TM and Dysport TM are FDA approved treatments for both women and men to temporarily smooth moderate to severe forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines. Temporary improvement is achieved by injecting product in the the the muscles in these areas. Treatment typically takes 10 minutes and most people describe the injections as a small pinch.
Botox TM and Dysport TM targets one of the major underlying causes of facial wrinkles, the repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, smiling and raising the eyebrows over the years. Your provider will determine which treatment is best for you, then inject these muscles to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of the frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines within 24-48 hours and results typically last up to 4 months.
At Center for Wellness MD we treat a variety of skin problems. Acne scar treatment with Fractora can reduce the appearance of acne scarring in a series of 15 minutes, painless RF micro-needling treatments without expensive medications. Radio-frequency micro-needling, with or without Platelet rich plasma (the “Vampire facial” procedures) can also treat age spots, removing dark and brown spots that can be the legacy of sun damage from the Colorado sun.
Fractora RF micro-needling also reduces facial redness and rosacea. The radio-frequency energy that we introduce into the deeper layers of skin can treat skin laxity, allowing for noninvasive skin tightening and noninvasive wrinkle reduction. Adding PRP (platelet rich plasma) to RF micro-needling can enhance results for a less invasive “facelift”when collagen repair is stimulated. Fractora RF micro-needling can be used on many parts of the body to reduce the appearance of stretch marks and surgical scars.
Visible results can be seen immediately following Fractora, but typically after two weeks the most noticeable results will appear. Improvements continue up to 3 months after treatment. Patient downtime is minimal and makeup can be applied 1-2 days following treatment. Patients can see micro lesions a few days after treatment and slight redness for up to a week.
PRP for Hair Loss
Hair thinning and hair loss can be deeply distressing. Hair growth can be affected by genetics, stress, aging, hormones and immune system attacks. Hormone changes during pregnancy, menopause and thyroid imbalances can often cause sudden hair loss. PRP (plasma rich plasma) is removed from your own blood where red and white blood cells are removed and growth factors and platelets are spun down then applied to the scalp via tiny subcutaneous injections, micro-needling and/or use of the Collagenizer. Studies have shown scalp PRP to be 70% effective in stimulating hair regrowth. It has also been shown to thicken thinned out hair. The Collagenizer uses a gentle electromagnetic energy to open the water channels in the skin to allow penetration of the growth factors and platelets into the hair follicles.
*Usually a series of 3-4 treatments over 8-12 weeks is recommended. Because of the hair growth cycle of 3.5 months, multiple treatments are required. A boost of PRP to the scalp every year is also recommended.
