Many patients may contact us for a facelift, but after their consultation, we find they prefer a less invasive means to look younger and feel better. Today, we can offer a revolutionary new anti-wrinkle treatment using your own blood. The treatment is called Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy. You may have heard it commonly referred to as “Vampire Facial”
PRP involves the use of blood plasma, enriched through a special process to increase the concentration of platelets. These platelets contain bioactive proteins and growth factors that serve to accelerate tissue repair and regeneration, and activate stem cells. This non-surgical, age-defying wrinkle treatment injects PRP, derived from your own blood, to stimulate collagen production and cell migration, resulting in fresh, healthy, younger looking skin. Bay Dermatology Centre have been offering PRP Therapy since it was approved by Health Canada , and the many patients who have chosen PRP Therapy are still enjoying their amazing, natural results months later. The best way to find out if this treatment is right for you is to speak to one of our dermatologists in person. Please call 416-515-8808 today to schedule your consultation.
What PRP really is…
Yes, it really does use a small amount of your own blood to prepare a platelet rich plasma/fibrin injectable gel. PRP Therapy involves a three step process that’s quick and easy. The whole treatment can take as little as 20 minutes depending upon the area you want to have treated. The injections do not add volume but rather stimulate your own collagen production and cell migration to eliminate lines, folds and wrinkles. The improvement is subtle and natural. Results can last up to two years.

Individually personalized treatment plan
Dr. Skotnicki “personalizes each and every facial rejuvenation, and each one can be done alone or in tandem with other non-surgical, age-defying procedures. For example, PRP can be either injected superficially with a meso-injection gun, or needle injections for volume enhancement. We also use it in combination with resurfacing laser, or micro needling.
