PRP Hair Rejuvenation

A Personal Story of Inspiration

Every day at ReNue, I feel very privileged that I get small glimpses into our patients’ lives.  Today, I want to share a personal journey that really got my attention over the last few months. I often feel very inspired by our patients.

A Patient’s Inspiration I was introduced to a patient by one of my nurses the other day.  This patient had just … Continue Reading

How Do You Know When You Have Found Your Medical Aesthetic Home?

Here at ReNue, we are very excited to be working on a new practice management system that will improve our patient care even more, but it begs the question, “How do you know when you have found the right place to address your aesthetic needs?” In order to answer this question, I recommend asking yourself the following questions.

The Problem with Politeness

This might be a blog more about friends and difficult conversation than medical aesthetics, but here goes.  I was at a talk given by a famous childhood psychologist a few years back and I remember one comment he made that stuck with me.  It went something like this. “The down fall of Canadian parenting is rooted in traditional British politeness.” This was of course coming from an Italian psychologist!  His point was that we are often too polite for our own good.  Kids understand direct, “un-polite,” commands from parents that are not laced with too many pleases and thank yous.  … Continue Reading

PRP: A Novel Therapy for Hair Restoration in Calgary

                    Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is an exciting hair restoration therapy we brought to Calgary, Seton, and Airdrie over 3 years ago that has taken some time to catch on. It is now starting to gain momentum in a big way because of the results we are achieving with this therapy alone. What is PRP? PRP is an injectable treatment (using needles) that aids in the rejuvenation of the body’s tissues. It has been more commonly used as an added therapy to improve surgery outcomes, especially in orthopaedics and plastic surgery. I … Continue Reading
