As we climb out of the Covid crisis – or at least out of isolation and lockdown – a lot of us have had time to think about the things we’d like to do to ensure a better lifestyle. Part of this has been the consideration for better wellbeing, and this might mean saying yes to that cosmetic procedure you’ve been contemplating for some time.
Post-Covid studies have shown a rise in the request for cosmetic procedures, with Dr. Cara Ting from Hair Skin Science telling us that “moving forward from lockdowns, people are keen to do things that make them feel good about themselves.”
I couldn’t agree more.
Hair Skin Science clinics offer a range of reputable treatments that deliver rapid and impressive results. The Australian-based company has clinics in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, each of which can treat hair loss and skin problems for women and men.
Treatments are affordable and all performed by specially trained doctors and nurses, and are tailored to suit all skin types and specific skin needs.
Hair Skin Science also offer professional treatments such as microneedling, antiwrinkle injections, laser treatments, fillers, and even thread lifts. One major area the company is becoming very much associated with is PRP Hair Treatment.
Its full name being ‘Platelet Rich Plasma’ treatment, this 100% natural, non-surgical procedure helps see the promotion of hair growth for men and women using their own plasma and growth factors to target areas of the scalp where there is hair loss.
The facts speak for themselves: approximately half of all men, for example, will experience male-pattern baldness over the age of 40. This form of balding, known as “androgenetic alopecia”, is a genetically predetermined disorder that causes a progressive loss of hair of the scalp at any age after puberty. While balding usually occurs gradually over years, one in five men can experience significant balding in their twenties.
Another fact: female pattern hair loss affects roughly 50% of women postmenopausal, but for some women balding can occur much earlier in their lives. Female-pattern hair loss can affect women as early as in their 30s and 40s.
PRP treatment is helping to rectify this. The procedure uses an individual’s own cells – taken from their blood – that is then reinjected into areas that need it most. To get a better picture of the procedure, the PRP is injected at half-inch intervals across thinning or bald areas and this treatment – combined with micro-needling – helps improve hair growth across the scalp.
PRP is also used to treat skin issues and is a great, less-invasive alternative to dermal fillers. Because PRP stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin, the process creates a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, helping to minimise scarring and pigmentation while improving the overall tone and texture of the skin.
Says Dr. Cara Ting from Hair Skin Science: “PRP is an effective way to treat an array of skin concerns, including ageing and preventative ageing, uneven skin tone, pigmentation and acne scarring.”
Popular treatment areas include dark under-eye circles, overall face glow, neck tightening, lines around the mouth, rectifying UV damage, helping mend acne scarring, fixing pigmentation and a whole lot more.
The best part is, Hair Skin Science offers free consultations – provided by certified medical doctors and registered nurses.
