Over the years I have tried many treatments in the quest for good skin, after my 15 year battle with acne.
I first tried Botox aged 35 with Dr Sebagh. At the time it was such a new treatment, and I went there knowing little about its true effects, asides from a recommendation that it would stop the all too frequent, and off-putting movement of my rather large forehead in my new TV career.
It was such a relief to me to have a ‘quieter’ forehead when talking on the screen that I soon became hooked, and have been a patient for 17 years.
When the clinic became one of the first locations in the U.K. to introduce The PRP – Platelet Rich Plasma – therapy under the perfect hands of Dr Diana Mariton, I knew I had to give it a try.
The idea of using your own plasma to help skin appear, and actually be, plumper and firmer; as well as helping with hair loss, and improving scar tissue seemed a miracle.
So for the last 3/4 years I have a PRP once or twice a year.
Using a Messotherapy technique to avoid bruising, but still allow penetration on the plasma into the dermis, is the best way to have the least downtime.
Some practitioners will also use different sized needles for deeper penetration but there can be a risk from bruising.
I also incorporate PRP with Dr Sebagh’s UltraLift – a ground breaking no downtime face lifting tdchnology using ultrasound to lift the skin and the deeper muscle underneath. Dr Sebagh developed his reputation as the king of Botox, but his ultimate quest is to offer non surgical solutions to the aging process. I have been a convert to Botox and PRP, but this is always in conjunction with my daily skincare routine, nutrition and general good health.
This is not a treatment for everyone but if you feel it might be for you then research well who offers it on their website (there are many clinics available) but make sure you get a good recommendation, and feel comfortable they are an experienced practitioner.
