Micro Needling

 

Micro Needling

Micro needling (also known as Medical Needling or Collagen Induction Therapy) is a non-surgical and non-ablative procedure used to treat various skin conditions such as aging (wrinkles, stretching), scarring (acne, surgical), hyper-pigmentation, cellulite and hair loss. Micro needling therapy triggers the body’s spontaneous healing process, stimulating cell proliferation and causing the formation of new collagen. This results in a thicker, more refreshed, cellular matrix and may introduce new hair growth.

Micro needling technology use very fine, sterile needles to puncture the skin and to create micro-channels deep into the skin in order to stimulate new collagen/elastin production. The resulting micro-channels also aid in infusing therapeutic serums or platelet-rich-plasma, allowing for greater penetration and increasing overall efficacy of active ingredients.

The puncturing channels close after a short time and these micro-injuries trigger the body’s wound healing cascade, which induces an increased collagen production in the treated skin.

PLEASE BE INFORMED: There are countless micro needling products (automated pens, dermal rollers, clinical solutions, etc.) available on the market that are NOT approved by Health Canada. You can search active licenses on Health Canada’s Official Website.

Wrinkle Treatments/ Neuromodulators

Skin wrinkles and lines result from skin creasing during repetitive dynamic facial expressions which we make on a daily basis. Over time these wrinkles can become large, deep and permanent. Muscle Relaxer Injections work by relaxing the muscles underneath these wrinkles, so the skin is given a chance to relax which results in smooth skin and wrinkle reduction.

Also referred to as onabotulinum toxin A, Neuromodulators® Cosmetic is a purified protein and neurotoxin complex which, when injected directly into the muscle, will cause relaxation. Produced in a controlled laboratory setting from the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum, Neuromodulators® Cosmetic works by blocking the chemical signal which allows for nerve impulses to be sent to the muscle and cause movement. 

A common misconception is Muscle Relaxer Injections will completely inhibit facial expression and movement. Our treatment goal is to soften facial lines, while still providing clients with a natural and refreshed appearance with the ability to display emotion.

Muscle Relaxer Injection is one of the leading procedures in the cosmetic and aesthetics field around the world.

Currently, Muscle Relaxer Injection is indicated for the treatment of:

  • Frown Lines 
  • Forehead 
  • Around the eyes

Hyperhidrosis

This condition is more commonly known as excessive sweating. Hyperhidrosis occurs when the hypothalamus which is responsible for controlling body temperature, signals sweat glands to start working overtime.

It is unknown exactly what causes hyperhidrosis, but may be triggered by a variety of things such as exercise, spicy food, and anxiety.

Those with hyperhidrosis experience excessive sweating on certain parts of the body, such as the face, hands, feet and underarms—areas that have a high concentration of sweat glands. If one side of the body is affected, then in most cases, the other side is affected as well, making it symmetrical.

Excessive Underarm Sweating

Excessive sweating concentrated in the underarm area is known as primary axillary hyperhidrosis. This can be particularly embarrassing as the condition can be visible to others when sweat soaks through clothing. In cases of severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis, no amount of antiperspirant reduces the amount of sweat produced under the arms. At Elevate Edmonton, we offer treatment with Muscle Relaxer Injection to address excessive underarm sweating.

Muscle Relaxer Injection treats severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis: A noticeable reduction in the amount of sweat produced in the underarms occurs in the days following the first treatment, and may take up to a month to be fully controlled.

Dermal Fillers/ Revanesse

As we age, our skin begins to show signs of wear in the form of wrinkles, creases and sagging. While some of these facial features can be the result of positive experiences like smiling, it doesn’t make them any more welcome for many people. 

Dermal fillers are intended for men and women who want to enhance facial features such as lips, cheeks or chin. Fillers can also be used to reduce the signs of aging on the face caused by fat loss, collagen and elastin depletion, and sagging skin. They are an ideal solution for those who prefer not to undergo plastic surgery. 
A dermal filler is a non-surgical, minimally invasive, medical treatment which is injected into the skin to correct creases, wrinkles and folds associated with aging. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that is found throughout your body. In the skin, it adds volume and hydration. They also add volume and definition by altering contours to regain a more youthful appearance.

Lip Injections

Some people are simply born with thin lips. Others are bothered by uneven, asymetrical lips, or lips that are out of proportion to the rest of the face. You can try to correct these issues with lip liners, lipsticks, and other makeup tricks, but that doesn’t last. If you want full, even, voluptuous lips for the long term, lip injections may be the answer. 

Revanesse Kiss is an incredibly soft and supple filler, designed specifically for lip enhancement. Using Revanesse Kiss, clients experience less bruising, pain, and swelling and recover faster and is formulated to last longer than many other fillers, with results apparent up to a year after your injection.

Our team of experts will create a soft and natural look, by adding subtle volume, achieving symmetry, and accentuating the vermillion border and Cupid’s bow.

Platelet Rich Plasma

PRP Therapy has been used in orthopaedics and the dental industry for decades to heal injuries and to speed up the healing process.  Over the last few years, Aesthetic practices have become fond of PRP for various treatments.

PRP which is derived from the patient’s blood, enhances the body’s ability to heal itself and has, therefore, become an attractive and effective nonsurgical option in Aesthetics. It is proven to be useful for Skin Rejuvenation, Female Rejuvenation, and Male Rejuvenation Treatments. As of late, the Hair Restoration industry has also found it to be helpful to stimulate hair growth.

The PRP contains many growth factors which are released to stimulate a response in the damaged tissue. By increasing the baseline concentration of platelets, PRP delivers a potent dose of growth factors that can dramatically enhance the healing process. Again, even micro-needled into the face and neck, the micro-injuries heal faster with PRP and tell the body to increase production of collagen which in turn plumps the skin and gives the instant glow everyone knows all too well.

Vampire Facelift ®

The Vampire Facial is the newest cosmetic procedure! Using your own blood (aka Platelet Rich Plasma), we combine this component with micro needling treatment.  The Micro needling procedure is done with a derma pen that is used to create tiny micro injuries into the skin which results in tighter skin, which glows with color, and scaring softens for a beautiful younger and very natural result. 

First, the injector isolates growth factors from the patient’s blood and processed through a centrifuge which spins it. This process isolates the plasma from the red blood cells- this plasma is rich in growth factors. The PRP component is then applied to the skin and worked into skin using the the micro needling pen.  The injector then uses a micro-needling device to create multiple micro-punctures — both driving the isolated growth factors into the skin & creating stimulus for tightening and rejuvenation of the collagen of the face. Then, these injector paints the growth factors onto the micro-punctures so the growth factors soak into the tissue for further stimulation of tightening and skin rejuvenation; ultimately, more youthful skin cells.

Priapus Shot

The Priapus Shot (P-shot®) involves the injection the client’s own Plasma Rich Plasma (PRP) growth factors into isolated areas of the penis. The following symptoms are treated with this revolutionary rejuvenation technique of the male organs: sexual function leading to harder and longer-lasting erections, increased sensitivity, improved aesthetics, and increased penis including length and girth. Male clients who may struggle with erectile dysfunction, would like increased pleasure/sensation, or are looking to increase the overall aesthetics of their penis, would benefit from this treatment. 

Vampire Breast Lift ®

Our nurse, Jacky is certified to perform this procedure at our clinic. The procedure is done in three steps. Firstly we evaluate your breasts. Secondly, we draw and sping your blood. Lastly, we reinject the blood back into the breasts. 

This procedure is a great option for you if you’re interested in lifting saggy breasts, increasing the shape and look of cleavage, fixing inverted nipples, erasing stretch marks or increasing breast and nipple sensitivity. The effects of the Vampire Breast Lift improve for two to three months and can last for at least one to two years!

O-SHOT ®

The Vampire O-Shot® is the use of PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) therapy which is injected into the patients vaginal tissue. Platelet rich plasma is rich in growth factors will naturally attract your own stem cells into the area, and aid in rejuvenating more desirable and functional tissue like the G-Spot, O-Spot, urethra and vaginal wall. Regenerating these tissues will result: 

  • Increased lubrication 
  • Increased sensitivity
  • Tightening of the vaginal opening
  • Younger and smoother skin and increased overall look
  • Stronger or more frequent orgasms
  • Decreased urinary incontinence

Clients usually enjoy the effects of the O-Shot™ almost immediately as the growth factors begin to rejuvenate and enhance the sexual response. So, the O-Shot® is a nonsurgical procedure which uses the growth factors each woman has in her own body to stimulate vaginal and clitoral rejuvenation to activate the Female Orgasm System. Thus far, almost all women receiving O-Shot™ procedure enjoy an increase in their sexual response, and for many the increase is dramatic.
