The quickest way to significantly improve your neck

The face is often the focus for anti-aging treatments, with women investing early on in botox and collagen to prevent premature formation of lines and sagging. But many of us forget how time can take its toll on the neck; a primary spot for telltale signs of aging. Turn back the clock and regain your youthful silhouette with a quick and easy, non-surgical PDO neck thread treatment.

How does a neck rejuvenation work? 

PDO thread lift is an effective cosmetic technique that lifts and tightens sagging skin tissues by inducing collagen production. A PDO neck lift will add tautness and tightness to sagging skin or wrinkles on the neck. Depending on the patient’s desired results, this can be performed in combination with a dermal filler or an autologous fat graft to achieve an even smoother and more youthful effect. 

Do you need to lift your neck?

Dr. Bhar will consider you a good candidate if you have one or more of the following concerns: 

  • An appearance popularly referred to as a ‘turkey neck’
  • Horizontal banding across the neck 
  • Sagging underneath the jawline creating difficult to remove jowls 
  • Excess fat under the chin which doesn’t budge with diet or exercise 
  • Sagging skin creating jowls along your jawline
  • A contrast in skin tone and quality between the neck and face 
  • A desire to feel more confident about your facial silhouette 

 

What are the benefits of a neck rejuvenation? 

  • Smoother neck contour 
  • Tauter and more well-defined jawline 
  • Lifts and tightens sagging skin 
  • More parity between quality of skin on the face and neck 
  • More youthful appearance
  • Removal of double-chin 
  • Straightforward “lunchtime procedure” with no recovery downtime needed 

How long do the results of a neck rejuvenation last? 

The results of the neck thread lift technique typically last between 18 and 24 months. We recommend repeating the treatment after 1-2 years to maintain optimum results.

A beginners guide to facial fillers

Fillers enhance and improve the plumpness of your skin, taking years off your face. But which is best for you?

We’ve put together a blog to breakdown the three main types of facial filler: PRP, PRF and HA, to break down the jargon and explain the different uses and benefits of each treatment.

1.What is PRP?

PRP is short for platelet-rich plasma and it’s produced using your own blood. You may have also know it as a “vampire facial”. PRP is a highly powerful antioxidant that when injected can reverse unwanted signs of aging and reinvigorate your skin. It harnesses the power of blood platelets to trigger accelerated healing deep down in the skin. This means that when PRP is injected into your skin, the concentrated proteins activate collagen growth and heal and plump the skin.

Here’s how the therapy works:
a) Your blood is taken from your arm.
b) It’s put in a centrifuge machine with some added ingredients to separate the PRP cells from regular blood cells.
c) Once the PRP has settled as a clear solution at the top of the vial, and blood is at the bottom, the clear PRP fluid is drawn up into a syringe.

d) The PRP is injected into any areas that require some extra volume e.g. your cheeks, under your eyes or around your mouth.
e) Dr. Bhar also uses a technique where micro-quantities are injected into many different areas which achieves a subtle, even finish.

2. What is PRF?

PRF stands for injectable platelet reduced fibrin. PRF is exactly the same as PRP, but no other chemicals are added before injecting it, so it contains a stronger concentration of youth-enhancing platelets, resulting in greater regenerative effects.

3. What is HA (dermal) filler?

PRP and PRF have incredible effects on their own, but they reach new heights when injected simultaneously with a dermal HA filler like Radiesse or Juvederm. The HA stands for hyaluronic acid. It’s already found in the body and works to renew volume underneath the skin. It’s the perfect option for anyone suffering with sunken skin or wrinkles, and is looking for tauter, plumper skin.

4. How long do the results last?

Patients who undergo a double treatment of PRP and HA or PRF and HA report they can see and feel the effects within a few minutes, with long-term effects lasting well beyond six months.

Why choose Dr. Bhar?
Dr. Bhar is an expert in state-of-the-art facial aesthetic techniques. His procedures are always tailored to the individual needs and aesthetic requirements of every patient.

PRP and PRF

What is PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is acquired by drawing a patient’s blood and spinning it in a centrifuge to concentrate blood platelets. It contains a lot of proteins and growth factors which usually support the body’s ability to produce collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin.

When PRP is injected into the body, it stimulates the skin’s ability to repair and restore tissue. This entirely natural treatment uses your body’s own natural processes to trigger deep and accelerated healing.

 

What is PRF?

Platelet-rich Fibrin (PRF) is the newest method to repair injuries within skin tissue. Fibrin is a biological scaffold which naturally forms in response to injury. Platelets bind to the Fibrin after an injury to activate and release growth factors. This enables the healing process by generating skin cells, collagen, and blood vessels.

Now, PRF can be isolated and injected back into the skin as well! The most important difference between PRP and PRF is the speed at which they function. While PRP releases its growth factors immediately to trigger rapid results, PRF releases its growth factors gradually. This means that PRF could sustain its benefits over a longer period of time.

Benefits of PRP and PRF for Your Skin

By improving the production of collagen, hyaluronic acid, elastin and other essential components of skin health, PRP and PRF treatments offer the following benefits to your skin:

  1. Reduce wrinkles
  2. Minimize acne scars
  3. Improve skin texture and color
  4. Rejuvenate overall complexion
  5. Restores youthful appearance
  6. Improves under eye puffiness and dark circles

It is very important to receive PRP and PRF treatments from an experienced and professional doctor. At Harley Street Surgery, Dr. Bhar uses PRP and PRF to eliminate your signs of skin damage and aging so you can look and feel like the very best version of yourself.

PRP

What is PRP?

PRP is known as the Platelet-rich plasma which is also known as autologous conditioned plasma. PRP is a substance which promotes healing when injected. It is a component of the blood which carries a special “factor” or proteins that help the blood to clot. It also contains proteins which support cell growth.

The idea is to inject PRP into damaged tissues which stimulate the body to grow new and healthy cells and promote healing. Because the tissue growth factors are more concentrated in the prepared growth injections, the body’s tissues may heal faster.

Facts about PRP

  1. At Harley Street Surgery, Dr. Bhar uses PRP to encourage healing and to reduce inflammation.
  2. In order to perform PRP, Dr. Bhar first draws blood from the person being treated.
  3. Side effects can be mild nausea, passing out and dizziness.

Benefits of PRP

There are a few benefits of PRP including:

  1. Hair growth

Dr. Bhar injects PRP into the scalp, as a way of reducing the inflammation which can lead to hair growth.

  1. Tissue Healing

Dr. Bhar uses PRP to help people heal after jaw and plastic surgeries. Examples of tissues that PRP has been used on include:

  • Tendons

 

  • Ligaments

 

  • Muscles

 

  • Ligaments can take some time and can be difficult to heal, which can make PRP an attractive option for some of those who have experienced injuries to this tissue group.
  1. Inflammation reduction

At our clinic, we use PRP to reduce inflammation caused by osteoarthritis. This inflammation can lead to painful and stiff joints.

How PRP works?

Platelets are blood cells with various roles to play in the body. One is to encourage blood clotting so that a person does not excessively bleed when they are cut. Another is to hold the protein in the blood which helps wounds to heal.

A small blood sample is taken from the person who is being treated and put into a centrifuge or other specialized device that spins at high speed. This process separates platelets from other blood components. The concentration of platelets is then injected into the area of the person’s body that needs to be treated.

Because the injection carries a high concentration of platelets which can be formed 5 to 10 times more than the untreated blood, the platelets will speed up healing.
