Topics In Cosmetic Medicine

 What is PRP?

 PRP treatment is the injection of your own plasma into the skin to achieve improvement in complexion, reduction in scarring, and revitalized hair growth.

What Can you Expect During a Treatment?

A nurse will draw blood, much the same way as if you were giving any routine blood sample. In  a few moments the blood is spun in a centrifuge to separate the red blood cells from the  “ plasma”, the component of blood that contains structures called platelets. Some calcium is added, and the plasma is re-injected with a small needle into the area of treatment , most often over the face or scalp. Treatment takes less than 30 minutes, and you can return to normal activities immediately. Results can be seen over the next few months, and best results are seen with repeat treatment.

How Does PRP Work?

Platelets are vital parts of the blood that help you heal when your skin sustains any kind of injury. That’s because platelets contain important growth factors. These can be activated by the addition of calcium to the plasma. The growth factors stimulate the production of complexion improving substances like collagen , elastin and hyaluronic acid. They can also stimulate hair growth in individuals who’s hair is thinning.

What Can you Expect After Treatment with PRP?

Over the two or three months after a PRP treatment, you will see some improvement in the texture and quality of your skin. Skin will appear smoother, with fewer fine lines. Areas where PRP is especially helpful include around the mouth for “ smoker’s lines” or in the skin adjacent to the eye area, so called “ crows feet” lines. If injected into areas of scarring, these will hopefully fade over some weeks to months, and be less visible. Best results for these indications are seen after three PRP treatments. For Hair growth, 6 treatments are recommended.

What are the Advantages of PRP?

Because it uses your own blood, PRP is very safe and well tolerated. Results are gradual and very natural looking. Treatment is quick and easy. Finally, PRP can easily be combined with other treatments, such as skincare, lasers, and other injectables , as well as surgical treatments like facelifts, breast or tummy surgeries, to improve healing, and augment the aesthetic benefits.

      Hi Elaine Just checking in to make sure you obtained an appointment regarding IPL? Just wanted to let you known we don’t usually look after appointment scheduling through the newsletter, so that’s why things might have slipped through the cracks- We will honour the Dec deal for you if you are still interested!

    I’m wondering the cost of lipo suction of the chin

    • Sandy says:

      Hello Carsta Thanks so much for your interest in Chin Liposuction at our clinic. The cost is typically $2250, though it can vary somewhat if someone has either a very small or very large amount of fat. Belkyra is also an option for treatment of fat under the chin. If you are interested in coming on for a consultation to discuss options and assess whether liposuction is the right choice for you, please contact us at 905-273-3045. We do not schedule appointments through the newsletter reply area

    Let me know when u have a promo on injections alone.

    • Sandy, patient coordinator says:

      Hello G Thanks for your interest in injections at our clinic.
      Unfortunately we will not be able to contact you to update you about specials based on a reply to the newsletter alone. We do not have a mechanism to store your information via this field. If you sign up to receive our newsletters, you will receive them monthly, along with our specials! Hope that helps!

  6. Nellie says:

    About your promotion above….how can the three IPL treatments be used by Feb 28 if they must be spaced apart at least 2 weeks to a month? Do you mean the first of 3 must be used by Feb 28?

    • Sandy, patient coordinator says:

      Hello Nellie Thanks for your question regarding IPL. Treatments every two weeks would allow 3 treatments over this time period. Having said that, we are usually somewhat flexible about scheduling for our specials, so if there was a good reason to stretch out the treatment dates, we try to accommodate. Due to Holiday closures, and a lot of belated interest in the IPL special, we are extending this promotion throughout January. If you are interested in IPL, by all means book a consultation appointment by calling us at 905-273-3045, or you can contact me at sandy@mcsconline.com. Please be aware we can’t schedule appointments through this newsletter reply field. Wishing you a very Happy New Year!
