Dermal fillers give men and women an immediate result for under eye hollows, lifting of the face, a more prominent cheek bone, a more defined jawline and a fresher more youthful look.

Dermal fillers also restore lip volume, and define the lips as well as improving skin hydration and the lines around the mouth. Dermal fillers are the second most popular cosmetic treatment in the world. A Lunchtime Facelift takes 30 minutes on average.

We conduct our treatments to minimize discomfort and bruising. Should there be any bruising, we use our gentle Laser Genesis® to remove the bruises.

Men's Appearance Toolbox

These days men are completely liberated, sensible and down-to earth. They understand what needs to be done and then just get on with it! Good examples are some of the treatments that attract our male clients to Skinfresh - we have everything needed for the Male Aesthetic Toolbox!

Everyone knows about body language. A frowning person does not look approachable, even if the person doesn't know they are frowning! You want people to want to do business with you and not fear approaching you. Many business and professional men regularly top up their frown line Dysport® (Botulinum Toxin) treatment with us.

Dysport® for frown lines are also used by Schoolteachers, Counselors and anyone dealing with people. This treatment takes only a few seconds, is fairly comfortable and starts working within 10-14 days.

If you don't like hair on your back or chest, why not just get on and get it removed! Our male clients like our Prowave 770® IPL hair removal treatment which is very comfortable and fast.

Losing your strong jawline? Not a problem. Dr Frances Pitsilis specializes in making men look strong, fresh and youthful by contouring the face with dermal fillers. Why not consider the "lunchtime facelift" which may take 30 minutes? This treatment gives immediate results and lasts for months - even longer if you have a top up at 6-9 months.

Blotches on the face? Brown or red ones with red veins? Skinfresh even treats Rosacea and Acne. Some of these problems may require internal health optimization first - but that is better because you get a better result!

We have a very comfortable gentle laser that helps Acne, Rosacea and facial redness called Laser Genesis® which is very relaxing and carries no down time - you just walk in and walk out and go straight back to work.

There are many more internal health and aesthetic treatments for men at Skinfresh to help you look and feel younger, healthier and more vibrant. Please look around our website and refer yourself or anyone you know for a no-obligation assessment consultation with one of our nurses.

Official Vampire® Procedures clinic

Skinfresh is now the official Vampire® procedures clinic!

Platelet Rich Plasma has been used for decades in many medical disciplines in relation to dental surgery, orthopaedic surgery, plastic surgery and more.

We have been using Platelet Rich Plasma from your own blood to help with cosmetic procedures as well as musculoskeletal problems in patients for many years. We view the addition of this leading edge technology as a logical addition to our services.

The Vampire® suite of procedures consolidates the synergy we already have between the medical restorative clinic and Skinfresh, our cosmetic clinic.

Do not be confused or misled! Only correctly trained, registered and licensed providers know the trade secrets of all the Vampire® procedures.

All of the Vampire® procedures utilize a patented technique that includes the use of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to rejuvenate, restore and enrich tissues.

Exclusively at Skinfresh, we are additionally able to work with internal health restoration as well as other procedures to help optimize further your results from all of the Vampire® procedures.

"At Skinfresh we help the inside to help the outside".

Vampire Facelift® Procedure

This procedure addresses the 3 signs of the ageing face:

  1. Grey skin colour due to reduced blood flow
  2. Facial sagging related to loss of fat, muscle and collagen
  3. Roughening skin texture with increase in fine lines and pores as well as poor hydration.

Some clients may do better with other procedures or surgery. This procedure helps to restore facial shape, improves skin tone, hydration and texture as well as rejuvenating the skin and stimulating the growth of younger tissue.

There are 3 specific steps in this procedure:-

  1. Hyaluronic acid dermal filler is injected in a specific way to sculpt a more youthful but natural appearing face. To be able to do this, Dr Pitsilis takes into account the specific mathematics of beauty.
  2. Two teaspoons of your blood is drawn and specifically prepared to extract and activate the platelets which extrude multiple growth factors when injected into your tissues. This stimulates increased collagen, fatty tissues and blood flow to create younger appearing skin.
  3. Using numbing cream and a very small needle and a specific microneedling technique, your own growth factors are injected back into your face in a particular way. These growth factors then activate your multipotent stem cells within your skin to stimulate younger looking tissues.

The effects of this procedure improve over 2-3 months and may last up to 1-2 years.

Priapus Shot® (P-Shot®) Procedure

This procedure addresses the problems of :-

  1. Erectile Dysfunction
  2. Enhancement and maintenance Erectile function
  3. Improvement and prevention of Erectile Dysfunction.
  4. Peyronies disease - the penis is bent when erect

The common problem of Erectile Dysfunction increases with age. At age 45 years, 50 % of men suffer from erectile dysfunction and it worsens from there, worsening with added disease and drugs.

This is a serious problem that inevitably affects the confidence and self esteem of men.

The P-Shot® procedure involves:-

  1. Numbing cream is applied to the penis by patient
  2. Two teaspoons of blood is drawn
  3. Activated Platelet Rich Plasma is produced, full of growth factors.
  4. Your PRP is injected into the penis using a tiny needle into the numbed penis in a way that distributes the growth factors in a proper way. (five tiny injections)

Questions and Answers about the P-Shot®

Q. How does the procedure work?

A. The Platelet Rich Plasma contains growth factors that stimulate tissue healing and growth. PRP stimulates improvement of the penile blood vessels and other tissues in the penis. PRP also stimulates the local tissue stem cells which are activated to rejuvenate and restore the tissues as well. The overall result are penile tissues restored to a more youthful state.

Q. What is the usual response to the P-Shot® injection?

A. The initial increase in volume often observed is due to the actual volume of PRP and any volume of growth factors and any water associated with them.

Over the next few days some of the water is absorbed by the body. After that, there is growth of new penile tissue over the next few weeks that increases the volume to a level close to what it was with the initial injection. Some men have some, but less growth. Results are variable.

Smokers, those with chronic illness and older men have the least growth and the least response.

Q. How many treatments do I need?

A. There is one treatment. It may be repeated within a few months for a boost if desired. A second treatment should be planned for.

Q. How effective is it?

A. Over 80% of healthy men have an immediate and then a long lasting result. Around 20% notice and increase in girth and length.

Q. How much growth can I expect?

A. In some men, there is to 20% increase in length and girth. Girth seems to occur first, then length with continued growth. It is not yet known if a second injection at 4-8 weeks will cause another growth spurt.

Q. Is there a risk of scar tissue forming?

A. No. This is more likely with the multiple injections of drugs used regularly for erectile dysfunction. In this case, the injections are very infrequent and the risk is virtually non existent. There has been no scar tissue seen with injections of PRP to the face.

Q. Can I react to this injection?

A. No. PRP has been administered to patients for decades within many medical disciplines from dentistry to orthopaedic, to musculoskeletal treatments and it has never been found that a person has reacted to their own cells within the PRP.

Q. Does it hurt?

A. The procedure is quite brief, and the penis is numbed with cream. It's a very small needle. The pain is very minimal.

If you are nervous about the procedure, we can easily give extra support.

Results associated with P-Shot® procedure may include a general rejuvenation of the penis. It improves the blood vessels (microcirculation) and tissues of the penis.

The penis may, in some, grow in girth and length (erect and non- erect) with time, as well as become firmer during erections.

There may be improvement in Penile Sensation and Sensitivity, Erectile Firmness, Quality and Stamina and Orgasmic Quality.

May help other therapies work better eg Viagra®

There will also be straightening of a bent penis.

Results may vary.

This treatment can also be seen as a maintenance treatment for healthy erectile function so that with ageing, the erectile tissues and blood vessels can be maintained rather than diminished.

This treatment may prevent Erectile Dysfunction with age, disease and drugs.

Exclusively at Skinfresh, we combine this treatment with specific penile rejuvenation medication that will help maintain erectile function with age.

Additionally, Dr Frances Pitsilis who is qualified and experienced in hormonal and nutritional medicine, can help with any drug induced erectile problems and safely correct any hormone and nutritional deficiencies that can help penile health as well as general health.

At Skinfresh, we specialize in helping internal health first , and along with other therapies to optimize your results.
