PRGF Plasma Rich Growth Factors- Vampire treatment.
My first introduction to the treatment was at the gym where a friend I had not seen for a few years looked gorgeous. Her skin was glowing!
We started talking, I complimented her beautiful skin, and then she told me…
Plasma Rich Growth Factors (PRGF) otherwise known as Vampire treatment! Sounds delicious!
I had never considered facial treatments, and always believed in aging gracefully, how she looked at her age made me completely change my mind.
She had the treatment done abroad back home a bit too far away from me, so I sat down with my laptop and searched within the area. Top of the list Estetica, surrey appeared. Their reviews were so positive I decided to check them out.
I spoke to a lovely lady over the phone who booked me in for an appointment. I was super excited to try this treatment!
To know what to expect from the treatment I went on the web and did some research. I was amazed to find out the treatment is done for medical purposes as well, such as arthritis- to regenerate bone, Hair loss- to promote follicle formation, and regeneration of skin- which is the area I was looking at.
The benefits of plasma rich in Growth factors…
Our body has the ability to regenerate itself by means of the platelets found in our blood plasma which also heals our wounds. Growth factors are proteins found in our platelets that repair and regenerate our skin. The process of this treatment results in durable natural regeneration by the skin internally. It also promotes:
I cannot wait for this treatment to start!
As I entered the surgery my jaw dropped at the beauty of the place. The design and detailing is thought of throughout. With soft music playing in the background, it immediately gave me the feeling of perfection not only in the surgery design but in the work being done here by the clinicians and staff…
I was greeted by the lovely receptionist Melinda and asked to take a seat. I could fall asleep in the seats!
My name was called and I was taken in by the friendly nurse Maral, asking me how I am and how my day is, very welcoming.
Dr Burgess is a professional polite lady. She shook my hand and insisted I call her Natty. She truly listened to my questions and needs, and fully answered my questions. I was reassured and all my fears were gone in an instant. She told me this treatment is not a quick fix, instant change, but more like watering a flower, you don not see the benefit and change instantly, but rather slowly with long term benefits.
I laid back in the soft bright green chair, then treatment commenced…
My face was scrubbed gently and disinfected, very relaxing and therapeutic experience..
After the treatment there were some sore areas where the skin was thinner such as forehead, chin and under eyes which worried me, but I was reassured it is nothing to worry about and overall it was a relatively painless treatment.
There was a clever device with a tiny needle at the end that gently injected the plasma into my skin. It controls the pressure and speed at which the injections go into the skin which makes the treatment comfortable and pain-free! The whole thing lasted approximately 45mins, the best rest I have had in ages!
After treatment my skin is covered in the remaining plasma, just like a moisturiser but a slightly more jelly like texture. Dr Burgess asked me to not remove the layer or put any make up on for the rest of the day.
I was a bit red and blotchy which I read about and expected, I was also forewarned it will not look pretty after treatment but the long term benefits are worth it.
In order to get best results three sessions are needed. I booked my next one straight away.
The next day…
My skin felt soft, and it was glowing already. So pleased with the results I recommended the vampire treatment to my family and friends. I cannot wait for the next session…
Thank you to Dr Natty Burgess and the team for the pleasant experience and amazing results.
I absolutely recommend Estetica as a high end clinic in Chertsey as a ‘go to’ place for treatment.
We live in a world where looking good is important. We want to feel our best, so we can be our best – so we eat well, we diet and we do our utmost to look after our bodies both inside and out. Yet sometimes no amount of healthy eating or rigorous workouts can eliminate flaws we’d much rather be without. When our bodies change from aging or weight loss, or even gain, we can hide the effects; we can dress accordingly to achieve a desired look. But what about when the issues are with our face. Facial volume loss is a common side effect of extreme weight loss, as well as aging itself, but it is one part of our bodies we cannot hide away.
Facial volume loss appears when there is a lack of collagen and elastin within the skin, which subsequently then leads to looser facial tone, causing and exacerbating the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and creases. Losing this protein from our skin, combined with a natural loss of fat on the face can give the upper cheeks a hollow appearance that then creates a heaviness above the jaw line and around the chin area. This hollowed sagging skin gives a tired and aged look and can stop us feeling good.
Of course there are extreme procedures that one can undertake to achieve their profile of yesteryear, such as face lifts and the like; however, these procedures are not without risk and an extremely high price tag. So if you have worked hard to achieve the body of your dreams, but now want to tighten up your face or if your sporting habits have left your face somewhat withdrawn, or if you are simply trying to slow down the cruel tricks of time, there could be a much less invasive answer…
And that answer is a Tread Lift. Known in the cosmetic surgery world as a ‘non-surgical’ or even somewhat comically a ‘lunchtime’ face lift, the Tread Lift is the timeliest, most discreet and effective face lift available. This revolutionary minimally-invasive treatment lifts sagging and ageing areas of the face and is preformed without the use of any incisions or surgery at all. Instead anchoring sutures are placed under the skin using a fine needle to elevate the sagging tissue and lift problem areas. Thanks to the lack of sedation, the downtime required after a Thread Lift is marginal and an overnight hospital stay is not required. Instead it is simply performed under local anaesthetic and takes as little as 30 minutes, and although you may experience some very slight bruising or swelling in the days following your procedure, patients able to walk out and return home, or to work, a short while after a Thread Lift.
Effects of the treatment last around 18 months, at which point the threads and cones, of which both are biodegradable, are absorbed into the body without need for removable. So if you want to look as good on the outside as you do on the inside but don’t want to go under the knife then get in touch today and find out how we can help you achieve a more youthful and healthy looking appearance.
I am due to get married in a few weeks so looking my absolute best is at the top of my priorities right now, other than the dress of course. I lost the fat pads in my face very quickly in the past few years and wanted to find ways to replace them.
I was suggested to check out esteticaa.com by a friend. I looked at the website and was quite impressed by all the treatments they do and the excellent reviews. So I called…
The friendly receptionist was very helpful over the phone and gave me lots of information to think about. Cheek augmentations aim to fill out sunken cheeks and change the contour of the face by replacing fat pads that have been lost due to quick weight loss or other age factors.
The Restylane fillers claim to offer a broad range of alternatives tailored for individual needs. All products work to enhance facial features, giving long-lasting, yet non-permanent results. It is targeted at a broad range of treatment areas including the face, neck, décolletage (the area between the neck and breasts) and hands; designed to replenish the hyaluronic acid lost through ageing, hence hydrating the skin and improving its elasticity and tone.
The big leap…..
I was very keen to try this treatment and decided to book myself in. I thought, I am worth it!
On the day, I walk into estetica surrey in Chertsey to find myself in a very glamorous clinic smelling like jasmine. I expected it all to be white and hospital looking, far from it! The lovely receptionist greeted me and I sat in the beautiful reception. I didn’t feel as nervous as I was before I entered the building. It has that calming effect…
Dr Salimi has genuinity about him; he will give his honest professional advice and opinion with the patient’s best interest. As we discussed the areas and what can be done and where, I felt more confident in his work. We decided to do the cheeks to lift my face and give volume and the naso-labial lines around my mouth and nose to give youthful appearance and avoid makeup settling in the creases. I absolutely hated when my foundation sat in the creases.
Numbing cream was applied for me to make it more comfortable, then 15/20 mins later we were ready to start…
Throughout the treatment I was shown one side to compare to the other, the change was instant. There was a definite change in the shape of my cheeks, but most importantly it looked natural, just like it says, Enhancement of natural features.
I was told that there is slight swelling due to the injections and drinking plenty of water keeps it hydrated and last longer due to the hydrophilic particles in the product. (Hydrophilic meaning the product loves water)
It’s amazing how much it has changed how I feel, my confidence has risen in other aspects of my life, and I feel fresher in the morning and throughout the day.
The product lasts approximately 5/6 months but seriously, worth it.
Thank you Dr Salimi and the whole estetica team for making this such a painless calm experience.
My hand shoots in front of my mouth whenever I laugh or smile….
I have always wanted to have whiter teeth. Years of coffee and coloured foods had taken its toll on my poor teeth.
There has been a lot of bad stigma with whitening teeth and horror stories floating online but I decided to take a chance and try it out as estetica has an impressive reputation and essentially very popular via word of mouth.
Last time I attended I was given a small leaflet summarising the zoom whitening and the terms and conditions associated with it. I took it as a sign and booked it online via their website http://www.esteticaa.co.uk/zoom-tuesday
Walking into the chic surgery with soft music playing in the background, I was greeted with a smile and given a consent form to read and sign.
I was called and greeted by a dental nurse who introduced herself as Agnes, smiling, asking how my day has been, and if I’m excited for the treatment, to which I responded “yes I can’t wait!” we both laughed and entered the treatment room. I was again greeted by a lovely dentist, Maryam, who has lovely teeth herself, she was calm and confident.
I then had my dental exam in a lovely soft dental chair, and the zoom whitening treatment went ahead. The TV was on for me at my choice of channel and in between I was checked on to make sure I’m ok and comfortable, to be honest I could fall asleep on this chair.
I had no sensitivity at all! And approximately 45 mins later I was done!
The things were removed and I was given a mirror to have a look at my bright smile. I had gone 9 shades lighter! Amazing!
The post instructions were discussed, strictly no wine or coloured drinks or foods for 24 hours at least and how to use my home whitening kit! Simple!
The treatment was wonderful and with very good results. The dental team were all friendly and welcoming.
Thank you estetica! Finally I can’t stop smiling!
