Basic care for the skin to look beautiful, smooth, clean and healthy is called skin care. It is necessary not only for the improvement of problematic skin, but also for the protection of healthy skin. Before skin care, the skin is evaluated and products suitable for the skin type are selected. It generally consists of steps such as cleaning, purification, feeding and protection. It can be turned into a medical procedure that helps the treatment by using products for the source of the problem in problematic skin.
Hyaluronic acid is the main building block of the cell matrix that gives the skin its moisture, vitality, fullness, shine and tension. Since it has a water holding capacity of 100 times its own molecular weight, it is the substance mainly responsible for the moisture of the skin.
As the amount of hyaluronic acid decreases over time, with the effect of genetic factors and external factors, the vitality, brightness, flexibility and moisture-holding ability of the skin decreases, thus the skin loses its moisture. The skin that loses its moisture dries up and also begins to lose its elasticity. Injections containing hyaluronic acid directly into the skin restore the skin’s moisture, flexibility and shine.
An average of 6-9 months effect is created after 1-4 sessions with varying frequencies depending on the product used. After applying a cream with local anesthetic effect, the application is made. After the application, slight redness and bruising may occur.
It is applied by injection of calcium hydroxyapatite, a mineral that is actually used as a filler. Since these mineral microspheres trigger the skin’s own collagen synthesis, it is also a method that improves skin quality.
It is especially preferred for rejuvenation of the jaw line, neck and back of the hand. It provides a visible improvement even when it is first applied, but the actual collagen stimulation starts within 3 months and continues up to 1 year. Its effect lasts for 2 years.
It is a painless application as it is mixed with a local anesthetic during the application. After the procedure, daily life can be continued.
PRP is a method in which the skin is made healthier and younger by using the wound healing cells obtained from the person’s own blood and the growth factors they secrete. It provides tissue regeneration by stimulating the stem cells in the injected areas and enabling them to become active.
When applied to the skin, it provides the regeneration and restructuring of collagen and elastin fibers by stimulating fibroblasts. As a result, the skin gets a brighter, tighter, flexible, that is, younger and healthier appearance.
The duration of the procedure takes an average of 30-45 minutes when the patient’s blood is taken, the separation process is performed, and it is given to the skin with fine needles. Before applying a cream with local anesthetic effect, the application is made. After the application, slight redness and bruising may occur.
Mesotherapy method is the introduction of necessary substances into the skin with very thin and small needles. It has been used in medicine for both health problems and aesthetic purposes for many years.
By using the necessary substances according to the problems and needs of the skin, it ensures that different skin problems such as moisture, spots, dull skin, sagging, acne can be intervened at the same time.
It usually requires repetitive sessions at intervals of 2-4 weeks. A comfortable application is provided by applying local anesthetic cream before the session. It can be combined with applications such as Dermapen, dermaroller, golden needle and fractional laser.
Micro Needle Radiofrequency is also called needle radiofrequency or Secret. It has a tip consisting of many micro-needles and works with the principle of radiofrequency energy passing between these needles. These needles, which enter the depth adjusted according to the desired effect, stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in the layer they work on. Since the energy decreases as it comes towards the surface, thermal damage does not occur in the epidermis and superficial skin layers. The aim is to deliver the highest energies that can be given directly under the skin without damaging the skin.
The result is a tighter, tighter pore-reduced skin. Since the holes opened by micro needles allow the passage of substances under the skin, they can be easily combined with methods such as mesotherapy or PRP.
It is applied as 1-3 sessions in total once a month on average. Local anesthesia in the form of a cream is sufficient beforehand. There may be a slight redness afterward. It is not a method that affects daily life.
Many problems that impair the quality of the skin can be solved by using many different lasers. Lasers used for skin resurfacing can be divided into three according to whether they peel the skin or not. They can be used alone or combined with each other.
Ablative lasers are lasers that peel the skin, they act by peeling the top layer of the skin at the desired thickness. The skin begins to regenerate in response to this, and at the same time, collagen production is stimulated. Lasers working with this method are effective on acne scars, surgical scars, some dark spots and especially fine wrinkles around the lips and eyes.
Non-ablative lasers act on the lower layers without damaging the upper layer of the skin. Those used for anti-aging purposes increase the collagen production by stimulating the cells by heating the deep layers of the skin. The Q-switch laser, which sees the melanin pigment and destroys the brown spots, and the lasers that treat the capillaries by seeing the hemoglobin are also included in this group.
Fractional lasers are lasers that can peel the skin in columns, leaving intact tissue in between. Although it can peel more deeply than ablative lasers, recovery is much faster because there is intact skin tissue around the peeled area. It is one of the most preferred methods, especially in deep acne scars.
The number of treatments required for laser skin improvement processes varies depending on what the skin problem is and how severe it is. In general, 3-6 sessions are required at intervals of 3-4 weeks. In terms of the permanence of the process, it is recommended to repeat the application at least one session with 1-2 years intervals.
