Improving cosmetic appearance has never been easier and more effective, with advancements in technology, and with treatment methods continually being researched and developed. Thailand offers the latest in medical aesthetic treatments, for hair, face and body concerns. Together with Enliven, discover the possibilities including, but not limited to, the following:
PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma)
PRP treatment uses the patient’s own blood, drawn and processed in a centrifuge, to proliferate enriched, reparative cells and growth factors. Injected into the scalp, this procedure stimulates natural hair growth.
The options for hair transplants are numerous and carried out on an outpatient basis.
In this procedure, hair is removed from an area with good, dense growth and transplanted to the required area. A scar does result where the hair was removed, but can usually be covered by the patient’s own hair. The recovery period for strip harvesting is about two weeks and a follow-up visit to the doctor may be required to remove stitches/staples, or suturing can also be performed.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
Although a time-consuming procedure, often requiring more than one session, FUE removes hairs from more than one area, which are then punctured with a micro-surgical needle into the target area. This procedure yields much more natural results, requires less recovery time and scars are minimal.
Hair Weaving adds hair to cover bald spots, or to thicken the appearance of one’s own natural hair. This process does not provide a permanent solution for balding, since no bulb is added and the hair woven in does not grow. Therefore, every few months, a visit to a qualified hair stylist will be required, to ensure the hair woven does not break or fall off, as it loosens with natural hair growth.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser Hair Removal, one of the most effective methods available, can be used to eliminate dark, coarse hair from most parts of the body, without damaging the surrounding skin. Targeting the roots, hair loss is generally permanent after just a few sessions. All other methods of hair removal, such as plucking and waxing, should be avoided for at least 4 weeks prior to treatment.
A great option for people in their 30s-50s, provided the skin sagging is not too severe, the Thread Lift causes no visible scars, and recovery time is only a few days. Techniques vary, dependent upon what is best suited to the patient. Changes are subtle and not permanent, yet help to enhance and highlight features previously affected by aging. Treatment needs to be repeated after one to two years, and is often combined with fillers, fat injections, botox or laser treatments.
