Rejuvenating the Face with PRP

The use of your own platelets to rejuvenate your skin is called PRP, which stands for Platelet Rich Plasma.  It is an exciting technology that we have been offering for years at our other locations and it is now available at our Seton/Auburn Bay location. The interesting thing about our bodies’ platelets is that they are packed full of molecules that aid in the body healing itself.  By concentrating the platelets, we can really amplify their affect without adding any artificial ingredients to the mix. The great thing about PRP is that is a completely natural method to improve your … Continue Reading

Treatment of the Lips Part 1 – The Aging Lip

The treatment of lips in the medical aesthetic world is the most controversial of subjects.  I am going to write a few blogs on the subject because I spend so much time treating lips and discussing lips with our clients. I want to start about discussing the aging lip.  I am not sure many people think about the lip as something that ages, but sadly, it ages along with the rest of us.  Our lips age for many of the same reasons that our skin ages with a few exceptions.

Introducing the ReNue Vampire Lift and ReNue PRP Facial

I have written about PRP before but we are at the brink of it becoming known to the masses and so I thought it needed to be revisited in a new way. This story goes back a-ways.  ReNue was the first to bring PRP technology to Calgary back in 2012.  We had a big press conference; local radio and the local papers were there, and a bunch of PR was done.  And guess what? It was all a big flop……… I remember being so excited and then 3 months down the road being so disappointed that the phones were not … Continue Reading

Preparing for That Special Event

A lovely long-time customer of mine just completed a series of Juvéderm treatments.  Her goal was to feel the best she could for her son’s upcoming wedding.  It is common for us at ReNue to get approached for skin rejuvenation and anti-aging treatments prior to a special event.  I can think of another client, recently, that was going to a family reunion in Eastern Europe and wanted to feel her best for the occasion.  These are stressful events.  We are all self-conscious of how we have taken care of ourselves over the years and I guess we hope we have … Continue Reading
