PRGF - Dracular Mesotherapy For Hair Loss

For a while now my hair has been fine and thin due to medication and hormonal changes.  The good new is that if you catch this in time, you can reverse this.  This is true for men too.

I spoke to Lisa Godfrey of Smile Studio Cockfosters about this and she offered me a solution using deep mesogun mesotherapy using my own plasma growth factors from my own blood.  PRGF - Plama Rich In Growth Factors.

The patients blood is taken and spun in a specially formulated machine to separate the plasma which is rich in the patients growth factors.  This is then transferred to a mesogun and injected slowly into the scalp, first deeply to get into the hair shaft and the superficially into the skin of the scalp.  The beauty of this is there will be zero allergic reaction in the patient and it is suitable to vegans.

It didn't take long and I can say hand on heart that to me it didn't hurt at all.  It was pingey, but not painful.  Afterwards my remaining plasma was massaged into my scalp to protect and heal.

This PRP procedure can be used in mesogun and injections.  It can be used on any part of the body to rejuvenate and can also be injected into joints for joint pain and arthritis.  This can help with wrinkles, sagging skin, scars and hyperpigmentation.  I was even offered a session for my Rosacea and Ocular Rosacea the next time I come for scalp treatment and plasma eye drops for my Ocular Rosacea.  Also Lisa was kind enough to offer to inject my knees as I suffer from limited ability due to various physical problems.

Hair loss can happen in men at any age and women particularly during menopause.  It can be devastating, especially for a woman and it is really good that we now have these advanced procedures to combat and treat this.  Since the treatment, I have had less hair fall during washing and have baby hairs growing through.  Of course I have switched my hair care to something kinder too.  NaturVital shampoo and conditioner which is all natural and not tested on animals and NaturTint hair dye which is also cruelty free and kinder to the environment.  Can't wait for my next treatment!

Treating & Managing Rosacea with Pam Cushing

During a WOW Facial by Debbie Costello (put who she is, facialist or skin specialist and where she is based)  at the Hyalual Institute UK she assessed my skin and was diagnosed with Rosacea.  Up to this time  I had been seeing  an aesthetics Doctor who had diagnosed me with acne.  She had prescribed monthly harsh chemical peels and medical grade Retinol for frequent home use for this.  What i did find it actually made my skin worse.  I now know This was totally the wrong thing for Rosacea.

During a Facebook discussion about Rosacea on my forum https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1279340905472458&ref=br_rs I found out that Rosacea is quite common and lots of people came forward looking for advice in the forum.  Fortunately I encountered an aesthetics Nurse called Pam Cushing who works closely with and has much respect for skin experts.  You can have all the aesthetics available, but if your skin is suffering this will not make a world of difference.  Skin health is crucial.  "Show your skin love and it will love you back" is Pam's motto.

Pam invited me to see her at SC Skin Clinic in Hornchurch Essex where she has a clinic once a month.  We discussed the previous misdiagnosis and incorrect treatment and Pam informed me that due to this my skin had been stripped of it's transdermal protective layer and now was screaming out for help - hence the redness, itchiness and red raised spots.  I am losing moisture from my skin at a rapid rate.  I understand now that the largest organ in the body - the skin should be left to the skin experts and I have learned a valuable lesson the hard way.  I am learning all the time.

Pam prescribed committing to a home care system to rebuild my transdermal skin layer before we even address skin treatments by pHformula PH Formula.  The CR line has been specifically formulated to manage the symptoms of chronic redness and Rosacea. This is the correct PH for the skin and will not cause an angry reaction.  It is a 5 step system which I have committed to and she has said to get the best results I must not use anything else on my skin.  I have a box of pHformula  creams etc which will last me for 3 months.  Firstly the EXFO cleanse which is a wet cleansing cream containing Lactobionic Acid and is to be used day and night before moisturising.  This removes make up, dirt, pollution and grease and a thick layer can be left on before rinsing with a muslin cloth once a week for a deep cleanse.  Next I am to apply CR Cream active/recovery cream and SOS rescue cream, 1 pump of each and gently blend with my fingertips.  This is to be applied day and night after cleansing.  This will help rebuild my skin's protective top layer  over the next month.  Once a day I am to use a pea sized amount of UV Protect SPF 30+ in the morning to protect from pollution and sun rays.  I also have Synergy serum which I will use at night before the CR and SOS when my skin is more calm and able to tolerate it, (after about a week).  This serum contains a gentle Retinol which is microencapsulated and time released for sensitive skin to help thicken the skin and make it more tolerant.

I must give my skin a rest for a while for treatments.  After that mesotherapy is fine, but under no circumstances should I have any skin peels, especially the harsh chemical peels I had been having.

I am now on my journey and almost a week in my skin is calming.  I use Vichy Dermablend oxidising SPF protection foundation when I go anywhere special to camouflage the Rosacea.  My skin is less red, angry, itchy, sore and the red spots are calming down.  It seems my skin is in the beginnings of being able to retain moisture again and protect itself from the elements and pollution.  I am confident that with Pam Cushing's help this Rosacea can be managed and my skin can look good again.  Can't wait to experience and see the benefits of the pHformula PH Formula skin treatments when my skin is up to it!

For anyone battling Rosacea, I recommend getting in touch with Pam Cushing, she is amazing!

WOW FACIAL - This is not just a facial!

Melissa Austin Foreman and I were officially invited as bloggers to try the WOW Facial at Hyalual Institute UK.  We met Debbie Costello a skin expert.  During my consultation I was diagnosed with Rosacea which I now can manage now I know what is wrong with my skin.  I am currently seeing Pam Cushing for this thanks to Debbie for diagnosing me.

The WOW facial is no ordinary facial.  It has been rigorously tested.  It is a 6 step treatment which acheives luxurious skin quality and glow.  The actual facial takes 90 minutes and results are instant.  Great for a special night out or a treat for a loved one.

Firstly gentle skin resurfacing is achieved by cleansing and a gentle skin peel; (salicylic acid, mandelic acid, lactobionic acid, pyruvic acid, retinol).  Don't be scared of the word "acid" it is very gentle and actually doesn't cause any burning, peeling or flaking, just resurfacing and opening up the microchannels prepping the skin for the next step.  (I avoided this step and just had the gentle cleanse due to the Rosacea).

Next is the mechanical exfoliation using dermaplaning - a scalpel to remove dead skin cells and peach fuzz hair. I have always wanted to try this since it first came out and I must say I absolutely love it!  (Debbie of course avoided areas that were inflamed with Rosacea).  This also unblocks pores and allows for superior penetration of products in the next step to avoid any flaking post treatment.

3rd step is the WOW Gun.  This is a controlled needling device which uses a serum combination of succinic acid and hyaluronic acid.  The serum is needled superficially into the skin to penetrate skin cells and deliver the benefits of the serum.  Succinic acid is vital for all forms of life to thrive and hyaluronic acid to flood the skin with moisture.  Succinic acid is a strong antioxidant which will stimulate new growth of elastin and collagen, it energises and detoxes the skin for up to 4 weeks and brightening effects can last for up to 3 months.  I didn't find this painful and it didn't take long at all.

Step 4 is very relaxing - led light therapy using the WOW LED Mask.  This is left on for 20 minutes.  Blue and red light was used on me.
The benefits of this are; reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, increased hydration, even skintone and texture, pore reduction and radiance.

After this step the WOW Mask was used. I love the WOW Mask and can hand on heart say that this is the best mask I have ever used.  It is a RMPC complex serum on a gel matrix in 2 parts to fit any shape or size face.  Ingredients include; high strength hyaluronic acid, argireline, stem cells and fruit extracts.  The WOW Mask uses transdermal technology to allow the ingredients to penetrate the skin to the deepest layers.  The effects of these ingredients relaxes the fine lines and wrinkles and shrinks the pores whilst hydrating the skin for up to 7 days.  The mask can be left on from 20 minutes, up to 40 minutes.  Within 20 minutes, my skin had completely sucked in all the wonderful serum as it was prepped so well.

The last step is a spray of ProfiDelux which is a spray that contains succinic acid and hyaluronic acid and some SPF and panthenol to protect the skin from the outside environment and aid healing.

This is a complete luxury that I urge anyone to treat their skin to.  Love your skin and your skin will love you back.

Kits for the WOW Facial can be purchased from Hyalual UK with free in salon/clinic training and the WOW Facial is offered by salons and clinics up and down the country.

Testimonial "The WOW facial left my skin dewy, clear and glowing.  My skin lit up.  The treatment worked on every part of my face and 3 weeks later my skin was still continuing to improve.  It really is a WOW factor treatment."  Kystal Roxx DJ & Producer

Mesotherapy training by Dr Philippe Hamida-Pisal

I got the chance to model for Dr Philippe Hamida-Pisal, President at Society of Mesotherapy of United Kingdom : SoMUK
He was training delegates at The Royal Society of Medicine for “Mesotherapy to Treat Alopecia (hair loss)”.  During the training I learned that the leading possible causes of female hair loss are; medication, hair dye, age, stress, hormones and menopause.  

A cocktail of vitamins that includes vitamin A, E, C, more than seven different types of vitamin B and antioxidants and amino acids in a serum was used and injected into my scalp with a mesogun, which didn't hurt and was actually quite relaxing.. Also, the delegates learned how to inject my scalp using the papule technique.  I can't say that I found this painful at all.  This treatment stimulates the hair follicle and brings it back to life, which encourages new hair to grow.  A course of scalp mesotherapy is recommended and this treatment can be used on men and women who suffer from thinning hair.

I was told not to wash my hair until the following morning.  I already use shampoos and conditioner that are natural and don't contain sulphates and chemical by Natur Vital which are not tested on animals.  The one containing Ginseng is good for scalp stimulation. I noticed much less hair fall when I washed my hair.  I also decided to start using Dr Organic Hemp Oil Scalp mousse from Holland and Barrett.  I took note of what Dr Philippe said about dyeing and bleaching and now switched my hair dye to Naturtint cruelty free range from Holland and Barrett.  I notice that my hair is in better condition, it has grown quicker and I also have baby hairs where I had the mesotherapy.  I will be going back to model for scalp, face, neck decolletage and hands in December as I am not scared of a needle!

For delegates wishing to train in Mesotherapy, Dr Phlippe Hamida-Pisal will be holding more trainings in December and at the beginning of next year, more information at www.somuk.co.uk .  Also models will be required. 

Mesotherapy training by the Society of Mesotherapy of United Kingdom will be held on the 16th and 17th of December.
Registration already started and based on first come, first served.
Our training is divided in 3 modules and based in central London, at the Royal Society of Medicine, and includes one year Membership with our Society.

Micro Needling for skin with Michele Hennan Brentwood

Michele Hennan is a skin expert and holistic beautician in Brentwood Essex with a professional beauty room, she invited me to have some micro needling as she knows I suffer from eczema.  Michelle can treat a number of skin conditions with micro needling including acne and scarring.  In fact she told me that she successfully reduced her daughter's acne scarring with microneedling.  Michele also offers skin peels.  She uses Dermapen the best needling device and Natura Studio products where she trained. Michele also gives holistic treatments such as reflexology, various massages including pregnancy massages and aromatherapy.  Beauty treatments include HD brows, waxing and lash and brow tinting.  There is also a Galvaderm Electrical Facial which looks interesting using high frequency current to purify and plump the skin giving a firmer appearance.  Quite an impressive menu of treatments under one roof.

Michele is easy to talk to, calm in manner and very knowledgeable when it comes to skin care.  I actually found out that the chemical peels I'd previously had for hormonal break outs  were not suitable for my sensitive skin.  She recommended a minimally invasive slow speed micro needling facial with hyaluronic acid serum.  The needling pushes the hyaluronic acid deep into the skin tissues to attract moisture and the mild irritation to the skin kick starts it into healing by producing collagen and elastin from the fibroblasts.  I found the facial quite relaxing and not at all painful and Michele also used a hydrating mask after whilst massaging my shoulders, neck and decollete.  The beauty couch she uses is also heated which was heaven for my back, I didn't want to get up!  I was advised to use moisturiser little and often to avoid dryness and use SPF daily.   It takes about 3-4 weeks to see the full results, it is red for a day and tight at first but glowing.  A week on my skin is feel moisturised, I don't have any more flaking from the eczema and it looks less angry. 

This treatment is £175 for 1 hour, it is recommended that a course of 3 treatments is booked which is £457 and should be carried out at least 2 weeks apart.

HIFU Machine Lift and Firm with Georgia Low-Louchiey - Harlow - Essex

I have heard so many good things about HIFU machine tightening and seen so many good before and after photos, so I was thrilled when Georgia Low-Louchiey asked me to come and try it for myself!  Georgia and I go back to when I wrote about mesotherapy in the Havering Post and on my blog for her.  The treatment is amazing and Georgia also uses Redermalization and Wow Masks by Hyalual UK, only the best products.  I also blogged on the mesotherapy, it made my skin glow.

Georgia is based in Harlow, she has a lovely shabby chic lodge that she uses as a treatment room all new and recently decorated.  Advanced Beauty Solutions By Georgia Low-Louchiey boasts a range of non surgical solutions for body and face.  Georgia offers the Redermalization Mesotherapy, WOW Facial using WOW collagen mask and LED light mask for a range of skin conditions, Caci facial tightening, , PH Formula skin resurfacing treatments, Microneedling Dermapen and HIFU for body and face.  

HIFU - High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) is the latest technology available for face lifting and skin tightening without surgery. Just one session will tighten and lift the skin, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and improve skin tone, providing visible results that will last up to two years.  HIFU is FDA approved and has the highest client satisfaction rate of all non surgical face lifting treatments.  It targets deep down in the foundation layer of your skin, the same layer addressed in cosmetic surgery. Unlike lasers, which penetrate the skin from the outside in, the HIFU procedure bypasses the surface of the skin, and delivers targeted energy specifically into the deep, structural tissues and muscles where collagen lives.  Visible improvements are immediate, however the majority of the results are seen in approximately 3-4 months, with further improvements being seen up to 3-6 months later.  HIFU uses focused ultrasound to precisely target and treat tissue at three levels, the Superficial Dermis, Deep Dermis and most importantly the SMAS which is at the top of the muscle, whilst at the same time leaving the surrounding tissue intact. These layers cannot be treated with chemical peels, micro-needling or other devices such as lasers Radio Frequency or microcurrent. The results of this treatment is the closest you can get to an actual surgical face lift but without surgery.

This treatment can be used all over the body apart from female breasts due to delicate glands.  It can be used for; face lift, neck lift, decolletage, upper arms, thighs, tummy, back and buttocks.  Georgia is now offering the "Hollywood Butt Lift" a very popular treatment.  (I may look into this in the future!) I opted for mid and lower face, neck and  decolletage lift.

To be honest, I have had machine facials before and it was definately not what I expected.  It is very powerful indeed.  It is administered on one part at a time and then that part is gone over a few times.  It is very high intensity and bypasses the skin to the top of the muscle, toning and lifting as it goes.  You can really feel the power, it does hurt a bit, but I coped by talking my way through it to take my mind off it.  No pain, no gain!  It was bearable, I would not have stopped her half way through and to be honest the results are really worth it.  It does ping and you can feel the muscle being targeted and even for days after you can still feel it working on the muscle.  The good part is, it doesn't take long.I had instant results that blew me away and over the last few days they are getting better and better.  My friends have said how my face looks smaller and lifted and also my cheekbones are really visible, making contouring well worth it now.  My under chin was the area that I was most concerned about and that is noticeably tighter.  Even my husband and children have told me that it has made a difference.  

Whilst I was there, Georgia noticed a mole on my chest that I've had since birth.  I've had it checked over and it is safe.  She offered to remove this with her plasma fusion machine called ACCOR which she uses for eye lifts and mole removals.  (This is similar to PlexR).  It took a little numbing cream and was treated in no time with zero pain.  

I will go back in 3 months for another HIFU session  in the same places to give that extra boost and make it hold for around 18 months to 3 years.  And also I will have another plasma fusion session on my mole to ensure it is fully gone.  All of these confidence building results without surgery!  Magic!  Can't wait to see some of Georgia's body treatments results on her Facebook page, especially the "Hollywood Butt Lift".

Dr Bawa - The Name On Everyone's Lips

Dr Bawa has clinics in Hainualt, Loughton, South Woodford, Wanstead and Waltham Abbey.  I opted for Hainualt which is in Helenic Beauty just two minutes from Hainault train station.   Helenic Beauty is a very friendly salon offering hair and beauty treatments.  

Firstly Dr Bawa took my medical history and gave me the consultation.  We chose to use 1ml of Juvederm Ultra 3. Firstly Dr Bawa injected my vermillion border on my upper lip and a little in the corners of my lower lip.  Every time the Doctor injected he sat me up to see how the shape was taking place.  Then he injected the body of my upper lip and a little into the body of my lower lip to balance the look.   He sat me up after every step of the injections and really took his time.  I've never had anybody take so much time to perfect my lips before.  The whole time Dr Bawa was asking if I was okay and if I needed more numbing cream.  The Juvederm was massaged to avoid lumps and give the right shape.   The Doctor also gave me a mirror every time he sat me up to assess me, involving me in my treatment every step of the way.  When I saw the final result I was stunned!  I really love my new lips and they should last the correct amount of time too.  For the next couple of days I used ice and took Ibruprofen and arnica to treat the swelling.  Now that the swelling has subsided I have a lovely natural pout helping me to look more youthful.  I will go back to Dr Bawa again and again.  I plan to have botox with him next time I see him.  

Also Dr Bawa's client care is really good.  He told me to send photos and if I need any kind of top up any time soon to come and see him.  At the moment he offers lips, dermal fillers and botox and will soon offer more treatments.  I definately recommend Dr Bawa.

Body Bliss at Vie Aesthetics - Inch Loss Treatment

Vie Aesthetics have a new body treatment called "Body Bliss", I decided to try this on my tummy area.  

The lovely Shayna treated me with the powerful machine.  Firstly there was an infrared light treatment to penetrate the fat cells and treat the skin and deeper tissues to create collagen.  This was warm and relaxing.  Then radio frequency was used to disturb the fat cells more and to tighten the skin, this is also really good for stretch marks.  Lastly ultrasound cavitation was used to break down the fat cells completely.  All of these 3 treatments took 8 minutes each, I was laying down for a total of 24 minutes of relaxing bliss.  This treatment is very comfortable and relaxing with absolutely zero pain.  All 3 of these treatments combined are very effective on fat, loose skin, water retention and stretch marks resulting in massive inch loss.  It is recommended that you drink lots of water and avoid fatty, sugary foods to help the treatment along.  Water is very important as your body is flushing fat and toxins away.  I did feel really good immediately after the treatment and slept very well that night.  The next day I felt as if I'd been doing tummy crunches!  I really felt and saw the positive effects of the treatment.  This is a painless and non invasive way to remove stubborn fat in any area of the body.  Good for men and for women.  

It is recommended to have a course of Body Bliss for optimal results if you have a large area to treat and to have a break of a week in between treatments so as your body has a chance to flush all nasties away as it's a very powerful treatment.

I fully recommend Body Bliss, one of the best body treatments I have had and will have again!

Vie Aesthetics are based in Southend-on-Sea, Rayleigh, Harley Street and Germany.  Dr Liakas is medical Director and an expert Doctor for all your aesthetics needs.  Vie have a huge range of treatments all under one roof to meet all of your non surgical needs.  They have great client service, a lovely friendly and professional team and continuity of care, always putting the client first.  The clinics are chic and spotless and the treatments are amazing.
