Botox & Dysport

Both are a type of botulinum type A used to relax the muscles that cause frown lines and other over active muscles of the face, like forehead lines and crow’s feet.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
The body can heal itself. Platelet-rich plasma therapy is a treatment method that can harness those abilities and amplify the natural growth factors your body uses to heal tissue. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses injections of a concentration of a patient’s platelets to accelerate the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints.
PRP injections are prepared by taking anywhere from one to a few tubes of your blood and running it through a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets. These activated platelets are then injected directly into your injured or diseased body tissue. This releases growth factors that stimulate and increase the number of reparative cells your body produces.
