Common neurotoxins include Botox and Dysport. Neurotoxins interfere with the nerve signals to certain facial muscles that cause wrinkles with facial expressions. The injections result in a relaxed, smoother look. The most commonly treated areas are between the eyebrows, forehead, and crow’s feet. Neurotoxin effects typically last several months.
Dermal fillers are a type of injectable gel that adds volume to the face. It improves facial contours and fills in fine lines and wrinkles. Commonly treated areas are nasolabial folds (lines between nose and mouth) and marionette lines. Dermal fillers are also frequently used to improve the volume and fullness of lips. Fillers are often needed when wrinkles are present without facial movement.
Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling with Selphyl® PRFM
Microneedling is a powerful technique for skin rejuvenation. Tiny needles are inserted into the skin very quickly, creating tiny areas of inflammation. This inflammation results in a healing effect, which stimulates production of collagen. Over time, this helps firm up the skin and creates a smoother appearance. Radiofrequency energy takes microneedling even farther. When the needles are inserted, a short burst of energy is emitted, increasing the effect on the skin. This amplifies the results significantly.
At Integrity Wellness MD, we finish the procedure with the application of Selphyl® PRFM. Selphyl is a type of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) that, when applied in this way, soaks into the deep layers of the skin to further improve the rejuvenation effect. PRFM is platelet-rich fibrin matrix, which is a newer way of using PRP. The PRP is made by drawing your blood and separating the plasma, then it is activated and used in or on your body. Growth factors are then drawn to the area to cause rejuvenation. Selphyl produces PRP in a fibrin matrix that locks it in place, so it works even more powerfully exactly where you want it. RF microneedling with Selphyl PRFM is typically done as a series of 3 treatments over several months.
