Clinical Procedures

Mesotherapy

Mesotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure that is a great alternative to surgical liposuction. Mesotherapy removes the fat from the fat cell; making it a very safe and effective alternative to liposuction. This procedure can be used successfully on many trouble areas of the body including; love handles, stomach, saddle bags, bra bulge, inner thigh, buttocks, abdomen, double chin, face, neck, back, and waist. Patients experience no downtime, minimal bruising and pain, and are able to maintain their cellulite and fat loss with proper nutrition and exercise. The results of Mesotherapy are long lasting; however, we cannot fully prevent aging.  Follow up procedures may be necessary for some patients.

Body and Face Thread Lift

Thread-liftThread Lifting is a non-surgical, no scar facelift performed using tiny threads. Multi-strand threads used are made of synthetic-material absorbable sterile surgical suture composed of Polydioxanone, which performs a role as scaffolds helping cells to attach.

Your body starts to produce new bundles of collagen which surround each thread and this in turn creates a subtle yet effective lift. Stem cells or PRP are injected along with the multi-strand threads to maximize activation of the cell culture within the body that increases effects. The results differ for each person, but look very natural giving a rejuvenated and refreshed look. There is no scaring and recovery times are a lot less than those associated with traditional surgery.

A thread lift is more suited to men and women between the ages of 25 and 70. The procedure is most effective on skin that has minimal sagging and offers the best results for cheeks, jowls, brows and the neck area. If you are looking for results that are more effective and long lasting than Botox and other fillers, then a thread lift is the ideal choice. If you are put off by traditional surgery or don’t want general anesthetic then a thread lift is great as it is minimally invasive and can be carried out under local anesthetic.

A thread lift’s lasting power depends on the age of the patient at the time of procedure and how much sagging the thread lift has corrected. It should be noted that sagging will return over time, but many doctors report that the results last for anything between 2-3 years. To extend the results it is possible to have additional threads inserted and the doctor will advise you when this is required.

Stem Cell Therapy

Stem-cellDr. Andrey will perform outpatient procedures using a process in which we isolate a patient’s own stem cells from either their own adipose (fat) tissue, or bone marrow. After mini-liposuction or bone marrow harvest from pelvic bone under local anesthesia, the patient’s tissue will be specially processed. Then immediately Isolated Stem Cells will be delivered to the patient. Depending on the nature of the disease, the cells may be injected into the joint, IV, intrathecal (lumbar puncture), intramuscular, or as a combination of above. The entire process will take just a few hours.

Stem Cell Therapy employs the body’s own healing potential by isolating stem cells from one location of the body (fat tissue or bone marrow) and relocating them to an area of disease, injury, or inflammation. The main function of stem cells is to maintain and repair tissue. Stem Cell Therapy enhances this natural function by getting stem cells more directly to an area of need within the body. As soon, as stem cells are injected, they will grow two types of cells the body needs to be repaired. Stem cells have the unique ability to form many different types of tissue including bone, cartilage, muscle, etc. They are naturally anti-inflammatory, therefore they help in the body’s own healing process and potentially reverse the effects of many diseases.

Scalp Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Scalp-platelet-rich-plasmaDr. Andrey Lutskovsky uses the #1 minimally invasive treatment in the world — Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). For even better results it could be combined with Stem Cells. This revolutionary treatment uses your own blood platelets and the growth factors found in them to help stimulate cell production.

When this treatment is used on the scalp it helps to restore hair growth, giving you a healthier fuller head of hair. For maximum effectiveness we recommend doing 3-4 treatments 1-2 months apart.

Platelet Rich Plasma Face Rejuvenation

clinical procedurePlatelet Rich Plasma is used to rejuvenate your skin and provide a younger look through the repair of tissues and collagen formation.  Blood is taken from a vein and spun in a centrifuge, to isolate the platelets and the plasma.  Then, through the use of a numbing cream and tiny cannulas, the physician injects the Platelet Rich Plasma into the areas of your face that need treatment.  Growth factors found in the plasma activate multi-potent stem cells which are already present in the skin.  This leads to the development of new collagen, which in turn, repairs and rejuvenates the skin.  For maximum results, we recommend 3-4 treatments done 2 months apart.

Fat Transfer

As we age, our skin becomes less effective at producing collagen. Collagen is a structural protein that gives elasticity and shape to our faces. The decrease of collagen and blood vessels in our face causes skin drooping, formation of wrinkles, and loss of pigmentation. A fat transfer is an advanced rejuvenating procedure that is used to address these signs of aging. When the aging process has progressed and our face loses volume that cannot be restored by just PRP, the fat transfer becomes the go to procedure. This involves taking fat from the stomach or other fat deposits on the body. Fat contains progenitor cells that can then grow into specialized cells like collagen. These cells are then combined with PRP and injected into problem areas of the face to not only create an immediate effect, but over time the results will continue to grow and add volume to your face.

Plasma Filling

Filler injections are used widely in aesthetic medicine, but are usually made of harmful chemicals and potential toxins.  We provide a safe, effective and all-natural alternative by only making filler gel from the patient’s own blood plasma.  Just like regular PRP, this treatment involves taking some of the patient’s blood and separating out the plasma by centrifuge. When PRP is extracted, typically the platelet-poor plasma is discarded. To do Plasma Fillings, we take this platelet-poor plasma and turn it into a natural filler. This filler is then injected into areas of deep wrinkles to create an immediate rejuvenating effect.
