PRP Skin Rejuvenation

Introducing the ReNue Radiance Program

We have been working very hard over the last few years trying to figure out what we can do to continually improve the results for our customers and the experience within our locations.  We listened hard, put our creative hats on, and came up with the ReNue Radiance Program, or “RRP.”  What we kept seeing was that “ReNuers” were not paying enough attention to their complexion as it ages and what we kept hearing was that they had great intentions to come in on a regular basis to keep their BOTOX or filler injections up-to-date, but life often was getting … Continue Reading

Treating Skin of All Colors

I was reflecting on what has changed in my 20 years of practicing cosmetic medicine, and one thing that has changed strikingly is the number of patients with skin of color that are seeking help with their aging skin.  By “skin of color,” I assume you know that I don’t mean tanned skin.  (I will save you the seminar on why tanning is brutal for your skin.)  Canada is becoming more ethnically diverse and it is reflected in our patients.

The great thing about PRP is that is a completely natural method to improve your … Continue Reading

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?

Let’s Talk about Necks – Part 2

Thank you for all the response to my first blog and appointments booked. Now comes the stuff I am particularly excited about: here is the future of necks. These procedures will help the neck with some sagging and skin laxity, but also, a more preventative mind-set will be the key to the aging neck. Here are some thoughts: PRP with Dermapen micro-needling: We are very excited about the results with this technique on the face and are now starting to use it on the neck.  There is no reason that we shouldn’t be able to achieve safe and reliable skin … Continue Reading
