Academy Laser Clinics offer Scarless mole removal and skin tag removal using radiosurgery for perfectly flat and invisible results. This treatment is aimed at anyone with raised benign moles, skin tags, seborrhoeic keratosis and other unwanted lesions on any part of the body.
THE TREATMENT PROCESS
An initial doctor’s consultation is the first step before treatment; it is important to discuss skin type and history of lesions to ensure they are suitable for removal. Whilst most lesions can be removed immediately, if anything looks suspicious the doctor may recommend a shave biopsy for pathology testing first.
The treatment involves the doctor injecting a small amount of local anaesthetic and removing the lesions via a variety of Radiosurgery techniques. The technique used depends upon the nature, size and elevation.
The most common technique is a wire loop to shave and scoop the lesion, other techniques use a wire tip to excise the area. There is no cutting of the skin and no sutures are required. Lesions are removed just below normal skin level, which allows new skin to heal over smooth and level with surrounding tissue. Treatment takes from 15 minutes to an hour depending on various factors.
The removal of moles or skin tags from the face generally result in perfectly flat and blended results.
The skin on the body takes longer to heal compared to the face and the treated area may be slightly paler than surrounding skin. If any brown or pinkish colour remains, it is possible to treat with laser or light therapy until the area is near invisible and without any noticeable scar.
50% of men aged between 40 and 65 years suffer from some level of erectile dysfunction including being impotent.
Calibre Clinic has developed the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Procedure. This is an injection program which aims to regenerate penile tissue using natural substances found in the body (concentrated blood platelets and growth factors) to trigger tissue repair and thereby allowing men to enjoy long term healthy erection and erectile function.
ABOUT THE PROCEDURE
The procedure commences with a confidential, private doctor’s consultation. This is necessary to identify the cause of the erectile dysfunction and is achieved by assessing the patient’s current medications, weight, lifestyle, psychology, illness and hormone balance and thereby enabling the doctor to ensure the correct treatment.
The number of treatments required will depend upon the cause, extent and duration of the patient’s erection problems. Most patients are required to have between 1 and 3 treatment sessions to achieve the best results. Patients will also be recommended to have an annual refresher session to extend results.
The next part of the procedure is a blood sample which is centrifuged to extract the required components using a system called EmCyte PurePRPII. This process takes 20-30 minutes.
After the sample has been centrifuged an anesthetic cream is applied to the penis and the concentrate Platelet Rich Plasma is injected into the the areas which are most important for blood flow. This process takes 10 minutes and during this time patients will experience swelling and inflammation which will subside in 48 hours.
Post treatment care and advise should be followed carefully.
In the first seven days, patients will see that the penis skin appears more hydrated, tissue regeneration starts after 3-4 weeks. Several sessions can be scheduled 4-8 weeks apart.
Results remain noticeable for over a year and an annual top up session is recommended to continue enjoying the benefits of the PRP procedure.
Results vary from patient to patient depending upon individual circumstances and the causes of erectile dysfunction. These factors will be discussed at your initial consultation.
Men are more likely to lose their hair than women, mostly due to male pattern baldness but thinning hair and hair loss are also common in women, and no less demoralizing. There are a number of possible causes for hair loss, although the main cause is Androgenetic Alopecia (AGA), more commonly known simply as Alopecia or pattern hair loss.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a natural treatment that uses the bioactive proteins and concentrated blood platelets from a patient’s blood to stimulate hair follicles and thereby encourage hair regrowth.
By stimulating the hair follicles, Platelet Rich Plasma hair loss treatment leads to both increased hair growth as well as thicker and healthier hair.
HOW THE PROCEDURE WORKS
The procedure begins with a consultation where a cosmetic nurse or doctor where the treatment will be discussed in detail. This is where patients can voice any concerns, discuss their desired outcomes and ask questions. During this consultation an appropriate treatment plan is put together for the patient. Usually two or three treatment sessions will be recommended.
Occasionally a patient is not suitable for treatment, this will be established during the meeting and the consultant will suggest alternative options if required.
Once the patient has been cleared for treatment the first stage is for the patient to have some blood drawn. During a 20-minute process the blood is separated creating the PurePRP II. This is achieved using an advanced centrifugal system where the anti-inflammatory white blood cells, plasma, platelets and proteins are harvested and separated
The PurePRP II which has been extracted and created from the patients blood is then injected into the treatment area to stimulate regrowth. For most patients, around 7-8ml of Platelet Rich Palsma is injected. This is done using using hand syringes, in about a one cm grid pattern.
It’s normal to experience some swelling and redness to the scalp, which should settle down within 48 hours.
With in 4-6 weeks after their treatment most patients notice obvious signs of hair regrowth and thickening. To ensure the duration of their results, it is recommended that patients have a top up treatment session every year to two years.
