Microneedling/SkinPen

Microneedling  is a treatment that creates thousands of microscopic channels in the skin in an effort to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, treat scarring and improve the overall texture and appearance of the skin. Microneedling is considered a collagen induction therapy which makes use of the bodies own healing response to increase the collagen and elastin in your skin creating an overall youthful and glowing appearance! The SkinPen® Precision system is a micro needling device and accessories intended to be used as a treatment to improve the appearance of facial acne scars and neck wrinkles in adults aged 22 years or older within Fitzpatrick skin types II through IV and any other use, on any other skin type is considered off-label. Micro needling procedures are performed in a minimally-invasive (little to no introduction of the instrument into the body) and precise manner with the use of the sterile needle head. The procedure is normally completed within 30–60 minutes, depending on the required procedure and anatomical site.

Micro needling allows for controlled induction of the skin’s self-repair mechanism by creating micro “injuries” in the skin that trigger new collagen synthesis, yet do not pose the risk of permanent scarring. The result is smoother, firmer and younger-looking skin. Micro needling procedures are performed in a safe and precise manner with the use of a sterile microneedle head. The procedure is normally completed within 30 – 60 minutes, depending on the required treatment and anatomical site.

After the procedure, the skin will be red and flushed in appearance, similar to moderate sunburn. You may also experience skin tightness, mild bruising and mild sensitivity to touch on the area being treated. This will diminish greatly after a few hours following treatments, and within the next 24 hours, the skin will be completely healed. After three days, most visible erythema (redness) will be gone, though this may take longer in some individuals. You are advised to avoid direct sun exposure to the recently treated area and to use sunscreen that is SPF 30 or higher.

Neurotoxins

Neurotoxins, specifically botulinum toxin (there are many variations including Botox, Xeomin, Dysport, Juvederm and Daxxify) can be used for aesthetic purposes to temporarily reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face or for other therapeutic uses such as chronic migraines, excessive sweating, pore reduction, facial slimming and muscle spasms.

Neurotoxins work by blocking the signals the nerves send to the muscles, resulting in temporary muscle paralysis. This effect can relax the muscles responsible for causing wrinkles and fine lines, such as those on the forehead, around the eyes (crow’s feet), and between the eyebrows (frown lines).

By injecting a neurotoxin into these targeted muscles, the muscles are temporarily weakened, which smooths out the overlying skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The effects typically last for several months, after which the muscles gradually regain their normal function, and the wrinkles and fine lines may slowly return.

In addition to its cosmetic uses, neurotoxins are also used for medical purposes (therapeutic neurotoxin) in treating chronic migraines, excessive sweating, facial slimming and muscle spasms. However, as with any medical procedure, it is essential to consult a qualified healthcare provider before undergoing any neurotoxin treatment to determine if it is safe and appropriate – and that is where Manna Life can help!

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are cosmetic treatments that involve applying a chemical solution to the skin to exfoliate and rejuvenate its appearance. These peels are used to improve various skin concerns, such as fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, acne scars, sun damage, and hyperpigmentation.

The chemical solution used in a peel causes the outermost layer of the skin to peel off, revealing a smoother, healthier-looking layer beneath. The depth and strength of the peel depend on the specific needs and desired results of the individual.

There are different types of chemical peels, categorized based on the depth of penetration into the skin:

Superficial or light peels: These peels primarily target the outermost layer of the skin (epidermis). They typically use mild acids, such as alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) like glycolic acid or lactic acid. Superficial peels are generally used to improve skin texture, tone, and mild discoloration.

Medium peels: These peels penetrate deeper into the skin, reaching the middle layer (dermis). They often utilize trichloroacetic acid (TCA) or a combination of TCA and other acids. Medium peels are effective for addressing wrinkles, acne scars, and more pronounced pigmentation issues.

Deep peels: Deep peels reach the deeper layers of the skin, including the lower dermis. Phenol is commonly used for deep peels. These peels are the most aggressive and require longer recovery time. They are usually reserved for treating severe wrinkles, extensive sun damage, and deep scars.

The procedure involves cleansing the skin, applying the chemical solution, and allowing it to work for a specific period. Afterward, the solution is neutralized or washed off, and the skin may temporarily appear red, irritated, or flaky.  It’s important to note that chemical peels may not be suitable for everyone, especially those with certain skin conditions, such as active infections, open wounds, or a history of keloid scars. Consult with a Manna Life professional to determine if a chemical peel is appropriate for your skin concerns and to discuss potential risks and benefits.

PDO Threads

PDO threads, also known as Polydioxanone threads, are a type of cosmetic treatment used for non-surgical facelifts and skin rejuvenation. PDO stands for Polydioxanone, which is a biodegradable synthetic polymer commonly used in medical sutures.

PDO threads are fine, absorbable threads that are inserted into the skin to lift and tighten sagging or loose tissues. They work by stimulating collagen production and providing mechanical support to the skin. The threads are placed strategically in the subcutaneous tissue, and once inserted, they create a supportive structure that lifts and tightens the skin!

We start with a full face consultation, during which our skilled aesthetics staff assesses you and gives you thorough information so you can decide if this is the best course of action for you. Once you’ve made your choice, we develop a treatment strategy that is especially suited to your requirements.

Procedure:  You will be given a local anesthetic before the procedure. The lifting process will then be started by carefully placing the PDO threads under the skin with sutures. In addition, to relax the muscles and smooth the skin, our injection specialist will provide a series of neurotoxic injections in the treated area. The treatment takes about 45 minutes, but depending on the area being treated, you may be required to schedule two appointments.

Following treatments, a care plan will be issued to you in order to improve your recovery. Initial redness and discomfort are possible. For a few days after your treatment, you’ll need to be cautious not to apply pressure to the treated region or wash it too aggressively.

What Happens After a PDO Thread Neck Lift?

You’ll see some improvement soon after treatment because the PDO threads are used to produce lift and definition. Over the following few days, the threads work together to smooth the skin. You’ll notice more improvements in the weeks following the procedure because it also stimulates the synthesis of collagen.

Even though a thread lift does not offer as much “lift” as surgery, it can still be very effective, especially when used to target specific treatment areas.

For best results, a non-surgical PDO Thread Neck Lift may be combined with additional procedures. For instance, the lift therapy doesn’t address aging-related pigmentation, thus other procedures can enhance its benefits. We can incorporate additional therapies into your unique approach.

BONUS!  Threads can be used in many places – not just your face!  Sagging skin on your abdomen?  THREADS!  Sagging skin around your knees or arms – THREADS!

Platelet Rich Fibrin(PRF)/Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Injection Platelet Rich Fibrin(PRF) which is the next generation of PRP/Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP).  Both are an all-natural, safer treatment option, also known as stem cell therapy, that uses the body’s own plasma and platelets to assist and stimulate healing/recovering tissue and cellular growth.

Uses:  PRF is a natural option that can be used to improve skin quality, texture, and appearance.  PRF/PRP can also be injected into the scalp to support hair regrowth and can be used as a natural filler!  Manna Life has been trained through the leading EXPERT in the industry Dr. Rajani!

PRP stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma, while PRF stands for Platelet-Rich Fibrin. Both PRP and PRF are autologous (derived from a patient’s own blood) preparations that contain a high concentration of platelets and growth factors, which can stimulate tissue healing and regeneration.

The main difference between PRP and PRF lies in their composition and preparation methods. PRP is a blood plasma product that is prepared by centrifuging a patient’s blood to separate the platelet-rich plasma from other components. PRP contains a higher concentration of platelets than whole blood, but it also contains other blood components such as red blood cells, white blood cells, and fibrinogen.

In contrast, PRF is a fibrin matrix enriched with platelets and leukocytes (white blood cells) that is prepared using a more advanced centrifugation method.  PRF preparation creates a fibrin scaffold that clots the into fibrin allowing for a much slower release of growth factor and cytokines – this results in more growth factors that can be kept more viable for a much longer time-period.  During the preparation of PRF, a second centrifugation step is added to further concentrate the platelets and to generate a fibrin clot, which serves as a scaffold for cell migration and tissue repair.

PRF has been shown to provide more clinically significant improvements in skin because of the preparation that preserve the rich growth factors and precious healing cells with 10 times the platelet concentration of PRP!  Bonus is that PRF is 100% natural!  There is no anticoagulant used in the preparation!
