  • PRP therapy (Vampire facial) for the face works by triggering the body’s healing and regenerative properties, boosting the production of collagen and elastin, and rejuvenating the skin for a firmer, more youthful look. The treatment consists of your blood being drawn, then the platelets are separated and spread over you face like a mask to rejuvenate your skin, and followed by a microneedling the plasma back into the skin. PRP treatments are great for age spots, hair loss, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and scaring. 
  • PDO threading is a treatment consisting of using PDO threads, made of polydiaxanone, to enhance and volumize areas of the face and neck. A medical expert will use a fine needle to insert the thread under your skin, which triggers collagen production around the area to lift and firm. While these threads will dissolve under the skin over the next few months, your skin will stay tight and features enhanced until your next treatment. PDO thread lifts have many benefits for people of all ages. The minimally invasive treatment is a great step for those who wish to reduce wrinkles, lift their look, and improve skin texture without committing to a surgical procedure. Those with mature skin may have threads placed along the neck to reduce sagging as skin becomes smooth and lifted, while threading around the eyes can smooth out crow’s feet.  A thread lift can treat most parts of your face that are experiencing signs of aging. The areas around your cheeks, jaw, neck, and eyes are among the most commonly treated areas.
