Botox

If you are looking for Botox, you have come to the right place! Botox and fillers are one of the steps towards preventing and treating your wrinkles. These simple injections can manage wrinkles around your eyes, eyebrows, forehead, lips, chin and neck. Botox is a brand name of neuromodulator. Other common names include Xeomin and Dysport. These three products are used to to achieve the same goal-relax your muscles that are causing your wrinkles. 

Filler

As we age, our face loses volume. Fillers are a treatment that can help fill out the face, cheeks, lips and other areas to lift and restore the facial contours. Various fillers are available for various areas of the face. Additionally, we are able to fix filler if you do not like the way the filler turned out by a previous injector. Some hyaluronic acid fillers can be dissolved! Emerald uses a variety of filler including Juvederm, Restylane and Sculptra. Each face is unique and not all filler is one size fits all. 

 

Platelet Rich plamsa (PRP) / Platelet RicH Fibrin (PRF)

Platelets are blood cells with several roles to play in the body. One is to promote blood clotting so that a person does not excessively bleed when they are cut. Another is to contain proteins in the blood that help wounds to heal. Researchers theorize that by injecting areas of inflammation or tissue damage with high concentrations of platelets, it can encourage wounds to heal.

A small blood sample is taken from the person being treated and put into a centrifuge or other specialized device that spins at high speed. This process separates platelets from other blood components. The concentration of platelets is then injected into the area of the person's body that needs to be treated such as wrinkles, acne scars or under eye treatments. This is usually combined with micro-needling to stimulate collagen and keep skin looking fresh.
