A carbon peel (HOLLYWOOD PEEL) is a revolutionary laser treatment that is completely painless with minimal-to-zero downtime. It is highly beneficial for people with normal skin and oily skin, blackheads, enlarged pores, dull skin, and acne on the face or body. It is also an excellentway to exfoliate and refresh your skin, providing an instant refreshed appearance and leaving skin feeling softer, smoother and firmer.
A layer of liquid carbon is applied to the skin, where it penetrates deep into the pores. Laser light is highly attracted to the carbon particles. When the laser is passed over the area, it destroys the carbon, taking dead skin cells, contaminants and oil with it.
This treatment provides several benefits.
Carbon has the ability to absorb oil and contaminants from deep within the pores. When the laser is passed over the treatment area it targets and destroys the carbon particles, taking any absorbed material with it.
As the carbon is targeted by the laser, it blasts away dead skin cells, blackheads and effectively exfoliates the skin. The result is softer, radiant skin with reduced pore size and a more even skin tone.
Carbon peels also target the deep layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production, which in turn produces firmer, plumper skin, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and leaves skin feeling tighter and glowing.
Acne and Oil Destroying:
The heat produced by carbon peels has 2 additional benefits. It reduces the P.Acnes bacteria responsible for acne, allowing for better management of pimples and outbreaks, and it also shrinks sebaceous glands (oil producing glands), resulting in less oil production, and therefore reducing congestion building up in the pores. Treatments can be performed on any part of the body, including the back and chest.
As with all skin treatments, carbon peels should be supplemented by a good skin-care routine, and daily use of a high-spectrum sunscreen. Noticeable results may be experienced after a single treatment, but for maximum long-term results we recommend regular treatments.

COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY aka MICRONEEDLING
Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) also known as Microneedling is the best non-invasive skin rejuvenation therapy present today.
It aims to improve the overall skin condition by stimulating the two fundamental skin building blocks – collagen and elastin.
Much like traditional skin rejuvenation procedures such as laser resurfacing and microdermabrasion, CIT stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, but in a painless and safer way with minimal or no side effects.
CIT does not significantly affect the epidermis, so it can be used on any skin color on the Fitzgerald Skin Type (FST) Scale. However, it should not be performed on patients with sunburn, an infection, or skin cancer on the procedure area.
The original instrument used for CIT is the DERMAROLLER. Now Micropens are used.
DERMAPEN 4 is the latest Microneedling device with vertical needle delivery, so it’s easy to maneuver. A skilled doctor can reach difficult and delicate areas such as the skin around the nose and mouth which is difficult with a dermaroller.Single-use sterile micro-needle cartridges are supplied for each treatment and patented technology ensures there is no cross contamination.
HOW DOES IT WORK
- It causes controlled micro-injuries(micro wounds) that stimulate your body’s natural wound healing process, while minimizing cellular damage. The result is effective remodeling of scar tissue, while keeping the overall structure of the skin in tact
- STAGES OF WOUND REPAIR
Phase I: Inflammation. Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to disinfect the wounds, remove debris, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue.
Phase II: Proliferation. The wound is rebuilt with new granulation cells, which are part of the extracellular matrix. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops.
Phase III: Remodeling. The wound is replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels.
WHO ALL CAN DO IT
- Patients with Premature skin ageing signs that include dark spots, wrinkles and the formation of fine lines.
- Scars caused by cystic acne and surgical procedures.
- Hyperpigmentation issues
WHAT DOES IT DO
- Reduces the appearance of enlarged pores
- Fixes the tone and texture of the skin
- Battles skin ageing signs including wrinkles, crow’s feet, fine lines, sagging and dry skin
- Lifts, tightens and adds a glow to the skin
- Reduces the appearance of skin blemishes including scars and hyperpigmentation issues
- Enhances the efficacy of skincare products as it improves the absorptive qualities of the skin
WHERE ALL CAN IT BE USED
Because of the DERMAPEN 4’s variable needle depths, it can be used on most body parts, including the face, neck, décolletage, hands, stomach, legs and arms.
A plan for optimal results. Your Doctor may recommend a course of procedures based on your individual goals. Maintenance of your procedure might require multiple treatments.
- A comfortable procedure. Based on your needs, your doctor will likely apply a topical numbing agent to the treatment area.
- A short procedure time. The treatment will likely take about 30 minutes.
- A mild sensation. Most patients report feeling only the slight vibration of the DERMAPEN 4 during the procedure.
- Minimal post-procedure effects. The skin will appear slightly pink to red immediately post-procedure, similar to a mild to moderate sunburn. You may also experience skin tightness and slight sensitivity to touch on the area being treated. This will reduce over the following few hours after your treatment and will have completely subsided by the next day. You may experience slight redness for a few days post-treatment. 3 to 5 days after your treatment, your skin is likely to feel a little dry and be flaky in some areas. This is due to the fast cellular turn over post treatment.
- Soothing aftercare To be used to prevent the skin from drying out post-treatment.

DERMAROLLER vs MICROPEN (dermapen)
- The Micropen is a more advanced delivery mechanism for Microneedling and has many advantages over the older method of Microneedling using a Dermaroller
- Micropens are less painful, less traumatic on the skin, and require less downtime. The Dermaroller inserts needles into the skin at a 45-degree angle. This tends to create tearing wounds as the drum is drug across the skin. In comparison, needles from the Micropen penetrate the epidermis vertically, creating a clean puncture wound that heals quickly.
- Micropens are more consistent. Micropens are motorized, allowing for controlled, consistent penetration of the skin, unlike Dermarollers, that are manually powered and often result in user error, puncturing the skin too deep or inconsistently.
- The Dermapen is more versatile. Because of its shape, Dermapens can easily treat areas of the face that a Dermaroller has difficulties with, such as around the eyes, the upper lip, and around the nose.
- Micropens provide customizable treatments. The size of the needle and the depth of the penetration may be customized when using Micropens to tailor treatments to the patient’s individual areas of concerns and skin issues.
- The Dermapen is more sanitary. Disposable tips are far more sanitary than using the same drum.
- The Micropen is more effective. After safety, the biggest advantage Micropens have over Dermarollers is efficacy. Micropens just work better.
- Dermarollers are less expensive. Perhaps the ONLY advantage of Dermarollers over Micropens is cost
PRP ( Platelet Rich Plasma )
At Prashanth Hospitals, we have been performing PRP therapy as a proactive therapeutic option for male and female patients experiencing hair loss. PRP is an exciting non-surgical therapeutic option for patients who require stimulation of hair growth for hair loss conditions.
Blood is drawn as in a routine blood test and spun in a centrifuge , separated and removed from the rest of the blood.
The highly concentrated platelet rich plasma (PRP) is then injected into the scalp and the patient may go home without any assistance. No sedation or any medication is given during the procedure to inhibit the ability to drive or use machinery.
PRP contains special cells called Platelets, which are present in the blood, that can cause growth of hair follicles by stimulating the stem cells and other cells in the microenvironment of the hair The primary purpose of using PRP in hair restoration is to stimulate inactive or newly implanted hair follicles into an active growth phase.
These cells promote healing, accelerates the rate and degree of tissue healing and regeneration, responds to injury, and formation of new cellular growth. It is used in hair transplant too to stimulate the inactive follicle.
PRP Rejuvenation for skin
PRP involves injection of the patient’s own platelets for the cosmetic treatment of wrinkles or scars in the face, hands and neck.
The goal of the PRP skin rejuvenation is to improve the skin tone and texture, tighten the skin, soften lines and pores It causes collagen to fill up in the scars. It is ideal for patients who don’t wish to have synthetic fillers.
PRP therapy is very promising in facial restoration.
THINNING OF HAIR – PRP
70% of men, and 40% of women will experience hair thinning as they age or as a result of stress or disease. Thinning hair can have a number of causes and before commencing any treatment It is important to rule out any pathological determinant, such as a thyroid condition, hormone imbalance or skin condition. The most common form of hair thinning is androgenic alopecia, or male pattern baldness, which involves the gradual miniaturisation of hair follicles across the top of the scalp. Usually thinning will begin at the forehead hairline and vertex with the affected areas increasing in size over time. Women can also be affected but will generally experience a more diffuse thinning across the top of the scalp.
There are few effective treatments for thinning hair that do not involve invasive and expensive procedures. PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) however is a relatively affordable and minimally invasive treatment that is safe, relatively comfortable and has little to no downtime which means you can easily fit it in around work and other commitments.
PRP has been used for many years in sports medicine and orthopaedics. It is well know for its healing and restorative effect on tissue. PRP is manufactured from the patients own blood. A small blood sample is taken, in the same way as a regular blood test, which is then spun down in a centrifuge to separate the blood into it’s separate components.
Platelet Rich Plasma is a collection of highly concentrated growth and healing factors. These can be used to regenerate and improve many different cells within the body, including skin cells and hair cells, when injected into the problem area.
Treatments are only mildly uncomfortable with virtually no down-time. A topical anaesthetic is applied to the area before the PRP is injected under the skin using a very fine needle. The number of tiny injections required depends on the size of the problem area. injections are delivered close together so that the entire area is infused with the PRP. Post treatment patients can expect slight tenderness in the area and possibly some pinprick bleeding. The area should be kept clean and dry until the following day when the hair should be washed and dried as normal. For best results initial treatments should be performed 4 weeks apart according to the patients individual needs. To maintain results maintenance treatments should be performed every 6 to12 months.
PRP is a proven treatment to slow, halt and reverse the hair thinning process, However it is important to acknowledge that every patient is individual. Plasma quality will vary form person to person resulting in variable results. Best results are achieved on healthy individuals. Fine, thin hair can be restored into thick strong hair but in areas where there is a complete absence of hair, treatments will not be effective. This is because PRP cannot revive hair follicles that are already dead – it can only restore, or make more active, weak and miniaturised hair follicles. There is no cure for androgenic alopecia but PRP can help to reduce the effects by thickening and strengthening what hair remains, and prolonging the retention of hair.
What is BOTOX?
BOTOX is the trade name of Botulinum toxin. This toxin acts by causing certain groups of facial muscles to not contract thereby helping in removing wrinkles.
BOTOX acts by causing weakness of the targeted muscle. When injected into muscles that cause wrinkles on the face, BOTOX causes a visible and significant improvement by reducing wrinkles, taking years off your face, and making you look and feel relaxed!
Lines or wrinkles on our face, can be divided into static and dynamic lines. The static lines are those that are present in the face at rest – i.e., lines which are seen even when you are not making any facial expression. Dynamic lines, are those which appear only on making an expression It is these dynamic lines that can be effectively treated with BOTOX. In general, wrinkles on the face need a combination approach. While BOTOX takes care of the dynamic lines, static lines are so much improved with a filler.
Fillers are very much sought after by everyone as it is a quick, easy and painless method to instantly improve a person’s facial appearance,. Ongoing and rigorous refinement of the procedure has made it possible to use this versatile tool with excellent results. Fillers can also be used for depressions caused by acne scars.
Electrocautery is a method by which moles, warts and skin tags can be removed almost painlessly and immediately. Using either topical (by applying a cream) or local (using a small injection) anesthesia, the procedure is rendered quick and painless to the patient. Healing occurs over a period of 3 to 10 days depending on the size and the depth of the lesion.
After a chemical peel, skin is temporarily more sensitive to the sun, so wear sunscreen every day. It should say “broad-spectrum” on the label, meaning it protects against the sun’s UVA and UVB rays. Also, it should be a physical sunscreen and be above SPF 30. Limit your time in the sun, especially between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., and wear a wide-brimmed hat.
During a chemical peel, most people feel a burning sensation that lasts about five to ten minutes, followed by a stinging sensation. Putting cool compresses on the skin may ease that stinging. You may need pain medication during or after a deeper peel.
Requires a combination of multiple procedures such as Subscision, Punch Excision, Microneedling, Dermabrasion and Chemical Peels, and Lasers to give the best possible results for any given patient.
As we age, our face undergoes a lot of changes in contour, texture, colour and elasticity. From looking our best in our early to mid twenties, the process of ageing slowly makes it mark on our appearance in accordance with our genetics. Also, external factors like sun exposure, improper nutrition and obesity and play an important role in hastening this ageing process.
Traditionally, interventions for an aged face would simply mean invasive surgery – a face lift, but now advances in cosmetic dermatology have made it possible to achieve excellent results without resorting to invasive surgery.
The approach to a Non Surgical Face Lift treatment is the facial tightening by one of the most advanced radiofrequency skin tightening equipments available. In the first year, 1- 3 treatments are required depending on the level of facial ageing, and results can easily be maintained with maintenance sessions every 12 – 18 months. This treatment closely follows the science of preventing/ ageing in a dynamic way as opposed to an one time, invasive surgery.
Along with acid fillers, BOTOX and fat dissolving injections, the tightening produces good results without the pain of invasive surgery. Since more than one intervention is often required depending on the stage of ageing, the treatments are often planned in sequence.
