Plexr Plasma Soft Surgery for blepharoplasty and much more

Dr Sister is pleased to annouce that he is now offering the Plexr Plasma Soft Surgery System. This is an incredible alternative to invasive surgery, reducing risk, recovery time, cost and possible complications.

What is it used for?

Plexr’s most common use is blepharoplasty – (eyelid surgery) a corrective procedure that addresses issues of the eyelids, which tightens the skin around the eyes reducing droop, puffiness and excess skin.

However Plexr can be used for a range of other issues. These include eye bags, face and neck lifts, removing moles, treating scars and removing stretch marks.

Patient before and after Plexr Soft Surgery with Dr Sister

How does it work?

Plexr uses what is called the forth state of matter – plasma. It ‘sublimate’s’ the tissue being treated by ionising gases the gas particles in the air between the tip of the device and the skin being treated, to create an electrical arc (like a tiny lightening bolt). No heat spreads to the surrounding areas. Whereas a surgical option would remove the tissue, Plexr causes the tissue to contract and tighten, and results are instant.

What happens during treatment?

Before treatment begins a topical anaesthetic cream is applied to the skin and left in place for around 3o minutes. The treatment itself may feel hot, but should not be too uncomfortable.

Is there any downtime?

The downtime associated with Plexr Soft Surgery is far less than with conventional surgery. There will be some redness and swelling for two – three days, then the skin will form a scab which must not be picked, scratched or rubbed. This will fall off within the first week to reveal new, pink skin.  It is important that the treated area is kept clean, that you do not use any products not recommended by Dr Sister and that you stay out of the sun.

How long do results last for?

Results will last for as long as those achieved with conventional surgery.

Dracula PRP Skin Savior – Dr Sister’s brand new enhanced PRP treatment

We are very pleased to announce a brand new treatment, available exclusively with Dr Sister.

Dracula PRP Therapy is Dr Sister’s key treatment. It improves not only facial muscle tone but also slows down the bone resorption on the eye sockets and jaw lines and has a positive action on the other signs of ageing skin

This year Dr Sister has undertaken extensive research on combining Dracula PRP Therapy with Xela Rederm, a mixed hyaluronic acid and succinic acid product produced by Hyalual Institute. The results show that this new treatment, Dracula PRP Skin Savior, provides stronger and faster results on elasticity, pigmentation, erythema (redness) and hydration.

This research focussed on 14 female patients (aged 35 to 65) and showed an irrefutable improvement:

  • On ALL 14 patients
  • On ALL symptoms, only ONE week after ONE treatment
  • And with results that keep improving over the course of the first month

The following graphs show the average increase in both skin hydration and skin elasticity across all 14 patients who took part in the trial. The results show that both hydration and elasticity increased significantly by two weeks post treatment, and then increased further by four weeks post treatment.

Special offer on thread lifts from Dr Sister

Silhouette Soft Lift is a revolutionary minimally invasive treatment for the lower face and neck that has proved hugely popular over the past few years. It provides a painless alternative to an invasive surgical face-lift, has very little downtime and combats signs of ageing by defining, lifting, restoring volume and reducing wrinkles.

Sometimes called the ‘non surgical face lift’, ‘puppet lift’ or ‘one stitch face lift’, the treatment is performed under a local anaesthetic and involves inserting suture threads under the skin. A slight pressure is then applied to the treated area which reshapes the surface of the skin and makes it visibly smoother. Take a look at these before and after photographs to give you an idea of treatment results*.

Photos copyright Dr Sister Ltd.

Treatment takes around 30 minutes, results are immediate and the effects last for around 18 months. Patients generally experience little downtime, and generally return to work and socialising within 24 hours.

Dr Sister is offering a 20% discount on the Silhouette Soft Lift until the end of March 2017. 

This treatment can also be combined with Dr Sister’s signature treatment, Dracula PRP Therapy, for maximum results. Dr Sister is such a fan of this treatment that he has had it done himself, take a look at his own before and after photographs.

For more information and to find out if the Silhouette Soft Lift is the right treatment for you, schedule a consultation or appointment by calling Lazeo Clinic on 0207 221 2248 and remember to quote this offer when booking.

Dr Sister’s text book on PRP published

Dr Sister’s new book, PRP: Platelet Rich Plasma – a New Frontier in Regenerative and Aesthetic Medicine, co-written by Jemma Patton,  aims to educate practitioners in all areas of medicine on PRP.

“When I first read about PRP I was intCoverPRPMontata.inddrigued, so much so that I became obsessed with reading about the procedure, reading articles, studies and research papers,” said Dr Sister.

He continued, “It was like discovering a new continent, with so many different indications and different protocols. When I noticed that practitioners were staying in their own disciplines and not sharing information and research, I reali
sed that a multidisciplinary medical textbook would have real value and benefit and I am immensely proud of the result.”

The new book is available through Wigmore Medical or direct from the publishers OEO FIRENZE. Wigmore are also offering a limited number of training and set up packages, including the book, centrifuge and kits. Please contact them direct  for more details.

Dr Sister is very plalumiermd_productseased to annouce that he is now offering the Alumier MD skincare range in clinic.

This is the first time that Dr Sister has ever recommended a skincare range. Never before found a range he has felt comfortable being associated with, but after extensive resea
rch he has picked Alumier for his patients. It’s a range only available via a doctor’s recommendation, which Dr Sister believes will cut down on his patients spending money on products that are not suitable, or of no real benefit to to their skin. The products are paraben and chemical free and contain interesting and important ingredients.

Anyone interested needs to have a consultation with Dr Sister. There’s no hard sell, which is another key point for Dr Sister.

Dr Sister offers a 20% discount on dermal fillers

 

dr-sister-logoDermal fillers are the perfect way to add volume, smooth out lines, wrinkles and folds. They can be used to restore lost volume, where tissue has degenerated or where fat loss has caused cheeks to drop. They can contour or reshape facial features such as the bridge of the nose and tear troughs, can add volume to the lips and/or cheeks or fill acne scars and pockmarks. Dermal fillers can also be used to add lost volume to hands.

Dr Sister only uses hyaluronic acid fillers – a safe and natural option. Hyaluronic acid is what gives our skin volume and fullness, and it’s a powerful moisturising agent that is completely broken down within the skin over a period of six – eight months. Dr Sister also specialises in combining dermal fillers with other treatments, for instance botulinum toxin or Dracula PRP Therapy.

For the rest of 2016 Dr Sister is happy to offer patients a 20% reduction in the price of dermal fillers. We are also happy to announce that Dr Sister will now redeem his consultation fee if treatment is booked for within two weeks of consultation.

Can hormones provide a natural face lift?

Over the last decade we’ve discovered that your skin may play an unexpected, and quite profound, role in health and immunity.

Your skin is no longer looked upon as simply the barrier that protects your internal organs, bones and muscles from the outside world. It’s now believed to be a kind of go-between, mediating the relationship your inner body has with its outer environment – and your hormones are at the centre of it all.

How old is your skin?

When ageing, skin loses its tone and looks thinner because of lowered water levels in the tissues. The skin of older (or fast ageing) people becomes papery thin and loses its firm texture.

There is published medical research that proves that the skin cannot function without hormones. Your skin reflects your metabolism. In fact, so much hormonal activity occurs in skin that it can be described as another, and the largest, endocrine gland.

Your skin has its own immune system, and specialised enzymes that no other part of the body has. In fact, it has been proposed that faulty skin immunity can affect the body’s entire immune system. Sunlight can penetrate deep into skin and alter immunity directly as well as affecting hormones. Sunlight decreases melatonin, norepinephrine and acetylcholine, it also increases cortisol, serotonin, GABA and dopamine. The anti-stress hormone DHEA and the sleep hormone Melatonin, are also both found in our skin.

Oestrogen and the skin

It seems that oestrogen may increase the activity of skin fibroblasts – the cells that produce collagen. Collagen is the connective tissue that adds ‘plumpness’ to skin, giving it structure and tone. It helps keep moisture in the skin by insuring the production of hyaluronic acid, a substance that keeps water in your tissues. The skin collagen content of women who take oestrogen replacement has been shown to be considerably higher than that of women who do not.

Scientific studies have shown that oestrogen replacement can:

  • Decrease wrinkle depth and pore size from 61 to 100%.
  • Markedly improve skin hydration Increase skin thickness from 7 to 15%.
  •  Increase skin lipid sebum production by 35%

Oestrogen also plays a role in the way that fat is distributed under the skin. Loss of this layer of fat can make skin look older than it should, by contributing to sagging and loss of fullness.

The skin-enhancing effects of oestrogen are well known. It stimulates collagen production and a moisture factor known as hyaluronic acid. Ageing decreases oestrogens and collagen, as well as enzymes that convert DHEA to oestrogens.

From our mid-twenties, the rate of cell renewal in the body slows down, moisture levels drop and collagen production is reduced, causing loss of elasticity.

Around the age of 40, we enter the zone of ‘skin maintenance’. As a woman’s hormones begin to fluctuate during perimenopause, skin changes are often what she notices first. Wrinkles, dryness and loss of lustre and elasticity can all result from declining sex steroid hormone levels.

During both perimenopause and menopause when a woman’s hormones are shifting and declining, an imbalance in testosterone can often be the cause of skin changes. For example, perimenopause is a time when many women experience a resurgence of acne. However, thin, dry skin can also be result of an imbalance in testosterone. Too little testosterone can mean not enough sebum which helps moisturise the outer layer of skin.

How hormones can affect your skin

  • Drooping eyelids – Lack of HGH & androgens (DHEA)
  • Hollow cheeks, lack of fat – Low cortisol & insulin
  • Thin lips, thinner jaws, falling cheeks – Low HGH
  • Thighs too soft, fat above knees – Low oestrogen
  • Thin skin, transparent – Low oestrogen
  • Falling breasts – Low oestrogen
  • Crumpled upper lip – Low oestrogen and androgen

So what can you do?

Anyone worried about their hormonal health, or with symptoms such as those described in this article, should consider having a hormone consultation.

A blood test and simple assessment of results can be done by a GP, but for an in-depth assessment that includes how your hormones may be affecting your appearance, you need a consultation with a specialist such as myself. I offer a bespoke service that will include nutritional, exercise and lifestyle advice, as well as prescriptions for bio-identical hormones if necessary.

YourHormoneDoctorIf you want to read more about hormones, my book (written with Susie Rogers and Leah Hardy) Your Hormone Doctor, is available in good book shops and via Amazon.

If you’ve got any questions about hormones, or any of my treatments, you can comment on this blog post, email me at info@drdanielsister.com, tweet me @DrDanielSister or contact me via Facebook.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Using Dracula PRP therapy to treat Acne Rosacea

Acne Rosacea is a condition with a very misleading name, as acne rosacea has nothing to do with the regular acne. Rosacea is a chronic skin condition characterized by facial redness, small and superficial dilated blood vessels on facial skin, papules, pustules, and swelling. It affects patients of all ages and if untreated, will worsen over time. Rosacea affects both men and women, but is almost three times more common in women and generally affects people between the ages of around 30 and 50.

Rosacea typically begins with redness on the central face, and across the cheeks, nose, or forehead. However it is also known to affect the neck, chest, ears, and scalp. In some case there can be semi-permanent redness, dilation of superficial blood vessels on the face, red domed papules (small bumps) and pustules, red gritty eyes, burning and stinging sensations.

Generally rosacea treatment has consisted of topical and oral antibiotic agents or laser. While medications often produce a temporary remission of redness within a few weeks, the redness typically returns fairly soon after treatment is stopped, meaning that lifelong treatment is often necessary.

I have found that a number of my patients with rosacea find their symptoms are greatly improved with Dracula PRP Therapy. And because PRP only uses your own blood, there is no risk that the treatment causing the condition to flare up and become worse.

This patient is in her mid 30s and had tried many different treatments for her rosacea including creams, lasers, diet and lifestyle but had had no success. Her Rosacea was so bad she was at the stage where she always refused to have her face photographed. She had one session of PRP 6 months ago and is now stable with a normal skin ever since. As you can see from my before and after images, this is a truly impressive result.

If you’ve got any questions about acne rosacea, or any of my treatments, you can comment on this blog post, email me at drsisterinfo@gmail.com, tweet me @DrDanielSister or contact me via Facebook. I look forward to hearing from you.
