Introducing Glow Rehab: A Plasma, Laser & Profhilo Fusion Treatment
Glow Rehab is a tri-phase treatment combining three modalities (PRP, Laser & Profhilo) performed in one week succession of one another to encourage skin remodelling at a much deeper level. It can be performed on the face, neck, décolleté, hands, and eyes. It is best suited for the patient that wishes to have minimally invasive treatments from their thirties to fifties and is not keen for treatment with traditional fillers or more invasive treatments. Patients also like the concept of the treatment working to promote their skins own ability to increase collagen. The overall aim of this treatment trio is to refresh tired skin without looking different or adding volume to the treated area.
PRP (also known as Platelet Rich Plasma, the ‘Vampire’ or ‘Dracula treatment), is non-surgical, completely natural and hypoallergenic – thus a treatment suitable for all patients- to effectively plump up the skin’s surface, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improve skin quality and clarity. It can also be used to treat acne scarring, blemishes, stretch marks, and dark periorbital skin.
During the procedure, a small amount of blood is taken and spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelet rich plasma from the red blood cells. The nutrient-rich platelet rich plasma is then injected back into skin to stimulate new collagen production and can be paired with the micro-needling technique. This is a low risk procedure with little potential for complications. SPF is applied after treatment and is required in their post treatment protocol to prevent post inflammatory pigmentary changes.
Laser Genesis is a non-invasive 1065 Nd:YAG laser designed to target fine lines, acne scars, large pores, and uneven skin tone by delivering energy in the form of heat to the upper layers of the dermis. Because it is a long wavelength laser (near infrared), it is safe to use on all skin types to provide long lasting stimulation of the elastin and collagen production. This is a quick and virtually painless treatment safe, effacious for all skin types, does not require topical anesthetic and does not have downtime. The laser can feel warm and tingling leaving the skin feeling warm post treatment with an immediate glow. SPF should be worn post treatment.
This is an injectable skin bio-remodelling treatment that stimulates the production of collagen and elastin and helps to significantly improve tissue quality and hydration. It is not a dermal filler and is more appealing to patients who do not which to have traditional dermal fillers or volumization. Treatment is comfortable and results in improved skin quality, skin hydration and endogenous hyaluronic acid and elastin production.
Glow Rehab helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles, increase production of collagen and elastin, even skin tone and rejuvenate the complexion. With a high safety profile and efficacy, this is a very popular treatment for patients with early or late skin changes associated with the natural ageing process that wish to have an alternative to volumization and more invasive skin treatments.
