For those who looking to reverse the effects of aging or damage caused by sun exposure, our team at Aesthetic Medicine Center has several tools to effectively reduce the appearance of sun and dark spots, including photo rejuvenation light therapy. At Aesthetic Medicine Center all photo rejuvenation light therapies are administered by a skilled physician. We use our laser to deal with age spots, sun spots, hyperpigmentation, melisma and other brown pigment concerns. The Laser is also used to treat redness, rosacea, spider veins and other red skin concerns. Procedure takes less than 30 minutes and is capable of diminishing age/liver spots, fine wrinkles, facial flushing, redness, broken capillaries, telangiectasia, freckles, and minor sun damage. Photo rejuvenation gives you the benefits of a medium depth laser, chemical peel or other type of resurfacing/rejuvenation procedure without the blisters, burns and long recovery time. Not only that, many patients report a reduction in pore size, smoother skin, and less wrinkles as a bonus.
Laser treatments are also exceptional in diminishing the signs of aging and photo damage. This includes fine lines, deeper wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. It is also a standout treatment for those dealing with acne scarring or large pore size.

The potential benefits of PRP have led to a recent widespread interest in its use for anti-aging and regenerative purposes. The healing properties of the blood components in PRP can be used as a cosmetic treatment for the following:
Within a few weeks of treatment, an overall improvement in skin hydration, texture and tone can be seen. New collagen and blood vessels begin to grow after three to six weeks, and reduction of fine lines and wrinkles and volume correction happens over the next three to six months. The effects of Cosmetic PRP can last 12 months to two years, depending on the individual. While it creates a longer-lasting effect in the skin, it does take time to work. For women looking for an immediate effect, Cosmetic PRP can be combined with hyaluronic acid fillers for quick volume correction. Fillers provide a matrix for building new collagen and can be used to accelerate and sustain the benefits of Cosmetic PRP.
Cosmetic wants and needs are unique to every woman and should be addressed individually. Often, women are looking for a refreshed, rejuvenated and youthful appearance without looking frozen or over-plumped, without aggressive surgery, chemicals or toxins. This can be done with the right combination of proper diet and lifestyle, skincare products and carefully chosen cosmetic procedures.
Some age-related concerns respond better to Cosmetic PRP, while others respond better to hyaluronic acid fillers, peels or laser resurfacing techniques. The effects of all these treatments are enhanced by using them together, in the right way, under the guidance of the right skincare team. Women and men of all ages can benefit from Cosmetic PRP.
Prior to the Cosmetic PRP procedure, a consultation is done to assess cosmetic needs and determine the best combination of treatments to achieve the desired result. A simple blood collection is done and processed immediately in a special centrifuge. This will concentrate and separate the platelet-rich plasma from the rest of the blood. After numbing the area being treated, the PRP is injected or reapplied to the skin using a micro-needling device. Proper after-care and follow-up is done as a part of all treatments.
Cosmetic PRP is a simple and safe procedure. The most common side effects are mild swelling and bruising that may last three to seven days. Because the PRP is extracted from your own blood, there is no risk of disease transmission, allergic or immune reaction. As with all cosmetic procedures, however, there are certain health conditions, such as autoimmune and blood disorders, that may limit its use. There is exciting potential for the use of PRP in regenerative, anti-aging and cosmetic medicine. It is a safe, effective and natural way of harnessing the healing power of your own blood to help reverse the signs of aging. As part of an integrated approach to skincare that addresses both internal and external factors, Cosmetic PRP can be your natural fountain of youth.
