What Does Dr. C Use?

 

I frequently get asked what do I do for my skin? I use all the options listed below as often as my energy and my time allows – I use LumiSPA at least once daily, Facial SPA at least once a week and Obagi C a few times a week. I use SoME 3 months daily PRP at least once a year.

SoMe

What is PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a vastly useful substance that people are using more and more to improve the health of their skin. The substance contains platelets and plasma, two components of your blood. Plasma is liquid and makes PRP an injectable substance, and platelets are cells that coagulate your blood and release growth factors to aid in healing.

To eliminate the red and white blood cells from a sample of your blood, Dr. C at Hera Healthcare places the sample in a centrifuge to force it into distinct layers. One of the layers, containing platelets and plasma only, is the PRP. She extracts it from the sample and uses it for your PRP skin care treatment.

Even if you take precautionary measures like avoiding direct sunlight and managing your stress in a healthy manner, your skin’s texture, tone, and other qualities tend to change with age. When applied to your skin or tissues, PRP stimulates cell regeneration to rid your skin of some of its less favorable features.

 

How do PRP skin care treatments work?

At HERA Health Care we can combine PRP with microneedling or other laser treatments, to enhance your skin’s remodeling and rejuvenation process. This type of PRP skin care treatment is called a PRP facial, and it can make a big difference in the way that your skin looks and feels.

For a traditional PRP facial, Dr. Cernaianu uses the Collagen Percutaneous Induction Needling (P.I.N.) device by Induction Therapies® that simplifies consistent microneedling. The pen-like device makes micro-injuries in your skin’s surface that your skin must heal. With a PRP application, this healing process is faster and more effective.

We are excited to introduce our most up to date technology that uses consistent delivery into the skin of the PRP  – the Potenza® radiofrequency microneedling device. The procedure is very similar to traditional microneedling but adds heat to your skin with gentle radiofrequency energy. The heat stimulates the production of new collagen fibers to firm your skin. Adding PRP speeds up and enhances the treatment even more. The Potenza has now the fusion tip, allowing the delivery of PRP directly into the skin with each application of the laser tip, allowing for a very uniform and consistent delivery of PRP all throughout the area of treatment. Goodbye multiple needles punctures and inconsistent results obtained via the traditional Vampire Facial technique!

What are the BENEFITS of using the LUMISPA daily?

 

Even though LUMISPA is an everyday cleansing beauty device, it also gently exfoliates and it softens fine lines and wrinkles and every time someone uses it. It’s the only device in the world able to extract impurities from inside the pores, so pores become minimized, damage spots are more difficult to form and texture of the skin will improve.

At HERA Health Care we do love it and we know you will love it too!
Your skin will be over 30% smoother and softer after a single use.
Your facial skin will be 60% more radiant after 12 weeks of use.

 

Get glowing and fall in love with LumpiSpa! LumiSpa® gently—yet deeply—cleanses away dirt, oil, makeup, and toxins through its patent-pending counter-rotating, pore-tightening action. It leaves skin smoother and purer, while reducing the appearance of pores. And the stimulating, massaging LumiSpa experience will leave you looking forward to your next treatment.

 

Picosure

What should I expect during a PicoSure procedure?

  The first step of the PicoSure procedure consists of Dr. Cernaianu determining if the process is ideal for you. With this procedure, it doesn’t matter what skin tone or color of tattoo you have because the quick impulses of the laser make the procedure safe and effective for almost anyone. PicoSure doesn’t require any special preparation. Typically, it takes about 10 to 15 minutes. The number of treatments depends on the location, size, and density of the tattoo ink or skin imperfections. You can expect to have between four to 10 treatments for tattoo removal. For skin revitalization, you will need 3-5 treatments, depending on your age. At your first appointment with Dr. Cernaianu, she discusses how many treatments you can expect based on your personal situation. PicoSure’s specialized wavelengths and rapid pulses minimize the amount of heat the laser produces, which reduces pain and discomfort when compared to traditional laser procedures. Additionally, Dr. Cernaianu uses a numbing agent to ensure the procedure is as comfortable for you as possible. Men and women who’ve had the procedure describe the pain as similar to the snapping of a rubber band.  

What can I expect after a PicoSure procedure?

  After the procedure, you will experience redness and moderate heat at the site of treatment. It will feel like you spent too much time in the sun without sunblock – this sensation and redness lasts a few hours.   PicoSure for acne scarring and tattoo removal is permanent. Some skin issues like freckles and brown spots may reoccur after the procedure, but follow-up treatments can alleviate this problem. PicoSure for skin revitalization provides long-lasting results but requires follow-up treatments to maintain them. Dr. Cernaianu discusses how often you need to have follow-up laser treatments.   Call to schedule an appointment for PicoSure laser treatments with Hera Healthcare’s Dr. Cernaianu today, serving Westlake Village and Thousand Oaks, California, or use the online scheduling form.   For your safety and protection, this office has been trained in Laser Science and Laser Safety in accordance with the American National Standards Institute Regulations ( Z136.1 Safe Use of Lasers and Z136.3 Safe Use of Lasers in Health Care Facilities).  

What is Picosure?

  PicoSure is a short-pulse laser therapy that removes tattoos and skin blemishes, and revitalizes the skin. It’s beneficial for treating wrinkles, sunspots, acne scars, freckles, and general discoloration. PicoSure is an FDA-approved treatment that doesn’t cause a buildup of heat like other laser treatments. Instead, it delivers energy pulses that travel in trillionths of a second. These laser pulses vibrate and shatter the unwanted ink or skin blemish. Because it doesn’t administer intense heat, it damages less tissue and causes minimal discomfort. If you’re looking for a solution to appear younger, this laser technology also triggers the body’s natural healing process by stimulating collagen production.
