PDO Thread Treatment

If you have been searching for non-invasive ways to minimize signs of ageing, you may have discovered that you have many options to choose from. While we offer a variety of injectables and fillers, we always aim to please the widest variety of patients possible. That is why we are proud to offer PDO thread lift procedures. 

 

The PDO Thread Lift is a treatment which lifts and tightens sagging skin tissue, using threads made of Polydioxanone (PDO). The threads introduce them into the deeper layers of the skin. Once introduced, the threads produce 3 effects in the skin: 

  • Instant skin lifting  

  • Cellular renewal, through collagen stimulation 

  • Skin tightening by contracting fat tissue 

PDO threads are typically metabolized after about six months. However, the lifted facial and body contours will remain for about 3-6 months longer, due to the collagen production caused by the thread and new blood vessels to improve skin microcirculation. This natural process causes the fat tissue to contract, producing a skin tightening and facial slimming effect.

Botox

About

 

As we age, our skin loses its ability to spring back to its natural state. That lack of elasticity, combined with a loss of volume, means more and more dynamic wrinkles—those you’ve gained from your facial expressions and mannerisms—become permanent, ageing your appearance.

 

Botox™, Xeomin™, and Dysport are brand names of the botulinum toxin. These products are prescription medications which are injected into the muscle to improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles. These medications work by temporarily freezing your facial muscles to improve your appearance. BOTOX can help you to look younger, calmer, and more alert. Kay recommends BOTOX as a great choice to help you regain a more youthful appearance and boost your self-confidence.

 

 

Effect & Downtime

 

The effects of Botox and similar products may be seen as early as 72 hours after the procedure but may be seen as late as 7-10 days afterwards. Botox generally lasts three to four months but may have an effect as long as six months in some patients.

 

 

Candidates

 

Candidates for Botox should be at least 18 years of age, in good overall health, and should not be pregnant or nursing. If you meet these criteria and have one or more bothersome facial wrinkles, you are a good candidate for BOTOX® procedures.

Filler

About

 

As we continue to age, our skin loses collagen which keeps our faces looking full and firm. Dermal fillers are made from Hyaluronic Acids (HA) which occurs naturally in our skin. The HA delivers nutrients which helps our skin retain softness, moisture, and repairs damage.

 

The HA dermal fillers at Kay’s Med Spa are top of the line injectable gels used to add volume to skin that has lost its fullness and plump appearance. Dermal fillers can smooth mild to moderate facial lines, plump up lips, volumize cheeks lifting sagging skin, and reduce acne scarring. They also help restore under eye hollows, enhance cheek volume, contour facial structure and correct lost volume in the hands.

 

Effect & Downtime

 

Unlike Botox, Dermal fillers show an immediate effect and can last anywhere from six months to two years depending on the location of the injection and the patient’s metabolism.

 

 

Candidates

 

Candidates for dermal fillers should be in good physical health, non-smokers, have a positive outlook and realistic goals for the improvement of their appearance, and a commitment to maintaining good skin health.

While dermal fillers are often referred to as a Liquid Facelift, it’s important to keep in mind that they can only help to improve your appearance temporarily.

PRP Hair Loss 

About 

 

PRP (platelet rich plasma) is a proactive therapeutic option for male and female patients experiencing hair loss. Blood is drawn from the patient and the red blood cells are separated from the plasma. This platelet-rich plasma stimulates hair growth using nothing but your own blood. This exciting new treatment both treats and prevents hair loss conditions. 

Effect & Downtime 

 

There is no downtime for PRP treatments. Although patients will start to see improvement in hair texture, the thickness of hair shaft and growth of new hairs in the treated area within two weeks after treatment, it typically takes three to six months from the initial treatment to see measurable results. 

 

Candidates 

 

PRP therapy may not be the most effective course of treatment for every patient. However, PRP therapy is an option you should consider if you are in the early stages of hair loss, have areas of “weak quality” hair growth on your scalp where functioning hair follicles can still be observed, and are in good health and are not suffering from certain types of blood disorders, skin issues, liver disorders, or diabetes. 

 

PRP Facial (Vampire Facial)

About

 

As we age, our skin, especially the thin skin surrounding our eyes, loses collagen and becomes even more thin and translucent. When this happens, the dark veins underneath the skin become more visible and thus contributes to the appearance of dark circles under the eyes. Hollow areas under the eyes also often create shadows, which can make the eyes look tired. To treat dark circles, we use PRP (platelet rich plasma).

 

Platelet-rich plasma is derived from the patient’s own blood and contains several growth and regenerative factors. PRP works by improving collagen production and blood supply in areas where it is lacking—which is ideal for those suffering from genetic dark circles. As skin quality improves with PRP treatment, the thin eyelid skin becomes healthier and thicker. Being that it is taken from the patient, there is a very low risk that allergies or complications will occur.

 

Effect & Downtime

 

Initial bruising, swelling and redness may occur in the treatment area and last for 12-48 hours. The PRP results typically take three treatments long term effects won’t be seen for three to four months after the initial treatment.

 

Candidates

 

Candidates for dermal fillers should be in good physical health, non-smokers, have a positive outlook and realistic goals for the improvement of their appearance, and a commitment to maintaining good skin health.
