PRP (platelet rich plasma) injections rejuvenate the delicate skin and help to heal damaged tissue with the bodys own platlets and help to stimulate increased collagen production for smoother firmer skin. A series of 2-3 treatments per year results in firmer, healthier skin with a youthful glow.
Fillers assist with hollowness and plump up depressed tissue alleviating the look of tiredness. A fine line filler can also be used for wrinkles resistant to botulinum toxin.
Radiofrequency and light based therapy help to tighten loose skin. Usually multiple treatments achieve a refreshed look with improved skin firmness and also assists with finer lines.
