What’s New

Science + Expertise + Impeccable Service = Outstanding Results

Our new Plasma Pen allows us to safely and effectively target stubborn wrinkles in discrete areas around the eyes, lips and neckline.  Crow’s feet, forehead lines and smoker’s lines are ideal wrinkles that we can successfully treat. Our Plasma Pen also serves to tighten and brighten the lax, delicate skin around the eyes and the neckline. This is a safe procedure with minimal downtime and with BIG skin tightening and brightening rewards.

Micro-needling procedures create micro-injuries to your skin to stimulate your own natural wound healing process to ramp up collagen and elastin production.  This is referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT).  Our new Evo Pen is an advanced, medical-grade micro-needling device that offers comfortable treatments, with very little downtime.  The degree of collagen induction we can achieve with our Evo Pen rivals that of most fractional laser treatments, but with significantly less expense and downtime.

It is common to infuse your skin with regenerative cocktails during your micro-needling sessions.  The micro-injuries created during your procedure act as portals that give us access and the ability to infuse the deep dermis with a variety of therapeutic cocktails that are customized to your skin’s needs.  The most commonly used infusion agent during micro-needling is PRP.  The combination of Micro-Needling and PRP infusion represents our crown jewel of  skin regeneration treatments.

One of our favourite bio-stimulatory and regenerative infusion agents is Platelet Rich Plasma, referred to as PRP.   PRP is at the forefront of Regenerative Medicine and is commonly  used in treating chronic wounds as well as Dental and Orthopaedic procedures. 

The process of creating PRP is quite simple.  We simply draw a small amount of your blood and then spin it in a centrifuge to separate out the beneficial elements of your plasma that include platelets, growth factors and stem cells.  This PRP is often referred to as Gold Broth given the bio-stimulatory and anti-inflammatory benefits  that it imparts when its infused into the skin.  The results are Brighter, Tighter and Smoother Skin.

PRP is used in a wide variety of ways in the realm of our Plastic Surgery Practice:

As injectables for:

  • Hair restoration
  • Tear Trough / dark under eye Circles

As potent regenerative infusion agent for:

  • Micro-needling sessions
  • Micro-Infusion Gold sessions.
