PHI Triple Repair
PHI Triple Repair is a combination of the latest treatments and devices used to rejuvenate and enhance skin quality that has moderate to severe scarring or textural concerns. PHI Triple Repair helps to increase collagen production and improve the skin’s texture.
First, an ultrasound device, the Ultraformer, is used to stimulate collagen synthesis in the deeper layers of the skin by causing micro thermal injuries. Then a form of dermal filler called Radiesse is injected via a tiny needle into the areas of concern to plump up the skin and give support and volume. Radiesse also helps to stimulate the body’s own natural collagen production over time. Micro needling is then performed to enhance this cascade of new collagen in the superficial layers of the skin. During procedure, tiny needles are used to create micro injuries to the skin. This stimulates collagen and elastin production by a healing and repair response, resulting in a thicker dermis and a reduced appearance in fine lines, scarring, and other textural concerns.
Results can be significant depending on the severity of the concern but it is important to understand that while results are long-lasting, it cannot be guaranteed that results are permanent. Factors such as ageing, damage to the skin, or the development of a medical condition affecting the skin may impact the results achieved.
Before and after PHI Triple Repair treatment
Initially the skin will remain red and may be hot to the touch for up to an hour after treatment. There may be some pinpoint bleeding from the micro needling, which usually subsides within an hour and forms incrustations. These incrustations may be visible even under makeup for up to a week so please factor this into your schedule when booking for this treatment. Your normal daily activities may be resumed immediately post treatment, although it is vital that you follow the recommended aftercare advice to help to achieve the best results possible and minimise complications.
On average, it has been found that 3-6 session are needed to see a significant improvement in indications such as scarring, lines, wrinkles, and poor skin quality. These sessions should be spaced 4-6 weeks apart. For patients with little indication but would like to maintain good skin quality and delay the signs of ageing, it is recommended that you have one session every 4-8 weeks. Depending on the specific concern, the number of sessions may be increased or decreased to suit the desired result.
Conditions treated with PHI Triple Repair
Acne scars treatments are regarded as cosmetic in Britain, and are largely unavailable on the NHS. It is estimated that 80% of people aged 11-30 will be affected by acne, mainly coming into fruition during puberty and pregnancy due to changes in hormones. When the acne has subsided, sometimes the scars from spots or picking can remain, leaving crater-like dimples or lumps and b...Read on Book consultation
Wrinkles around the eyes, also known as crow’s feet or ‘smile lines’, are one of the first signs of ageing, often being the first wrinkles to appear. As we age, the body stops producing collagen (which keeps skin supple and firm) and elastin (which helps skin ‘bounce back’ after making facial expressions), meaning repetitive facial expressions like laughing and squ...Read on Book consultation
