When done for the right reason on the right patient, the results can be dramatic. Fractional laser "drills" perfectly spaced holes of computer-generated depth in a grid on the skin. This stimulates neo-collagenesis (new collagen growth), restoring volume and elasticity to the face. This is an ideal therapy for deep wrinkles, certain types of acne scars and age-related skin laxity. Fractional laser treatment can take away decades of aging away.

PRP takes advantage of the fact that platelets are your body’s riches source of growth factors. PRP has been done for years in sports medicine and orthopedics for rejuvenating cartilage and tendon but only recently has it been recognized to be a tissue rejuvenating process for skin. During the procedure, a small vial of blood is removed (just like when you get a blood test). Then, your own growth factors are extracted from platelets in our certified laboratory. Afterwards, the platelets are delicately placed into your neck and chest with an ultrafine needle microinjection system. The collagen promoting growth factors can now get to work ! New collagen growth does not occur immediately; the best results are noticed in several months.
