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 skin tone, texture and thickness. It also can provide some minor volume improvement in the face. When used in this way we call it “The ReNue Vampire Lift.” It can be combined with BOTOX® Cosmetic and Juvéderm to give an even more enhanced affect.
In our comprehensive ReNue consults, we are very clear what PRP can help with and what BOTOX, lasers or Juvéderm are needed for, but they can also all work together to create a more youthful face. We often combine PRP with laser treatments and micro-needling to improve thickness of the skin and help with tone and texture issues. Adding PRP therapy to laser treatments and micro-needling also improves your recovery time. In the last month, we have helped our patients with acne scars, sun-damage, under-eye hollows, and lines around the lips and eyes, to name a few.
We were the first to bring PRP technology for facial rejuvenation to Calgary. We have the experience to give you the results you deserve.
Summertime is a great time to plan your skin routine. We look forward to being a part of your skin rejuvenation journey. Please contact us to schedule your consultation today.
