We offer PRP: Platelet Rich Plasma Treatments
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is a skin rejuvenating system designed to help restore your natural beauty. We use the PuraPlas system which uses your own blood to isolate plasma, where a concentrate of nutrients and platelets reside. Platelets are cells that naturally assist your body in healing and generating new tissue. Platelets also contain Growth Factors, which are involved in stem cell migration, and ultimately activate, rejuvenate and regenerate cells throughout the body. By isolating the platelet-rich portion of your blood and injecting it back into target regions, you are able to fight the signs of aging and correct imperfections using your body’s natural biology.

Kawartha Cosmetic Clinic: Rejuvenation therapies
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is a skin rejuvenating system designed to help restore your natural beauty. By isolating the platelet-rich portion of your blood and injecting it back into target regions, you can fight the signs of aging and correct imperfections using your body’s natural biology.
This treatment is also very successful at aiding in hair regrowth in areas where hair has become thin or fragile. You can make a noticeable difference in thinning hair or balding areas with PRP treatments. This treatment works for both men and women.
Sublative is the only technology proven to reduce moderate to severe acne scars for all skin types
The Sublative™ RF applicator is designed to deliver radiofrequency energy to the skin in a fractional manner, via an array of multi-electrode pins. The array delivers bipolar RF energy to the skin.
Sublative Rejuvenation is a new kind of safe and effective cosmetic technology that works on virtually all skin tones. It is neither laser- nor light-based. Instead, it harnesses the power of fractionated bi-polar radiofrequency (also known as gentle energy currents) to deeply penetrate the skin and stimulate collagen production beneath the surface while keeping the outer layer of skin intact. Unlike other non-aggressive procedures like Botox, fillers or chemical peels, Sublative works from within. It is based upon the same type of ultrasound used for body scans and tests during pregnancy. Energy from the ultrasound, when used to treat sagging skin, activates the production of new collagen.
eMatrix Sublative Rejuvenation produces the same kind of results as aggressive procedures without the pain, downtime, side effects or cost. There is no visible injury to the skin’s outer layers. Focused energy currents are applied to the skin in a matrix, bypassing upper layers of the skin and stimulating the natural production of collagen at the source. This “resets” the body’s regenerative process, which is why results continue to improve over time. Gentle heat is delivered at the underlying connective tissue where the skin joins the muscle—the same layer that is tightened during a conventional facelift. This tissue is gently heated, causing it to contract and eventually lift. As a result, formerly loose skin appears subtly tightened.
Sublative is an intelligent technology. Doctors are able get feedback on how the energy is impacting the underlying layers of skin on a screen during the procedure, so the treatment can be precisely targeted. Radio frequency waves penetrate the skin through small pin holes to stimulate collagen growth from the inside.
How does eMatrix Sublative Rejuvenation work?
The ergonomic Sublative applicator delivers bipolar radio frequency energy via a matrix of 64 electrodes in the disposable applicator tip. The RF energy generates fractional deep dermal heating in the region of the electrode matrix to induce skin injury, thus eliciting a wound healing response. Mild to moderate wrinkles and superficial skin discoloration are reduced, and skin texture becomes more smooth and elastic.
Who should be treated with eMatrix Sublative Rejuvenation?
Treatment is a safe and effective solution for all skin types.
How is the eMatrix Sublative Rejuvenation treatment tolerated by patients?
During treatment, many patients feel a warm, prickly sensation as energy enters their skin. After treatment, a pink or red “sunburn” appearance and feeling is also common. Topical anesthetic ointments and cooling are often used to reduce discomfort during treatment.
When can patients expect to see results?
Typical treatment protocol is 3 treatments, 4 – 6 weeks apart. The total number of required treatment sessions depends on the skin condition of the patient.
What is sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is a popular method of eliminating varicose veins and superficial telangiectasias (“spider veins”). A solution, called a sclerosing agent, is injected into the veins to break down the vein wall.
Does sclerotherapy work for everyone?
The majority of individuals who receive sclerotherapy treatment will be cleared of their varicosities or have visible improvement. However, there is no guarantee that sclerotherapy will be effective in every case. Approximately 10% of patients who undergo sclerotherapy have poor to fair results. (“Poor results” indicating that the veins have not disappeared after six treatments.) In extremely rare cases, the patient’s condition may become worse after sclerotherapy treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments needed to clear or improve varicose veins differs for each person. The number of treatments can range from one to six, with the average number being three or four. Individual veins usually require one to three treatments.
What are the most common side effects?
The most common side effects experienced with sclerotherapy are:
1) Itching: You may experience mild itching along the vein route. This normally lasts 1-2 days.
2) Transient Hyperpigmentation: Approximately 30% of all patients who undergo sclerotherapy notice a light brown discolouration after treatment. Nearly all patients notice a darkening of the vein immediately after the procedure. In rare instances the darkening may persist for 4 to 12 months.
3) Sloughing: Sloughing occurs in less than 3% of patients who have received sclerotherapy. Sloughing consists of a small, slowly healing ulceration at the injections site. A blister may form, open, and become ulcerated. The scar that follows should return to a normal colour.
4) Allergic Reactions: Very rarely a patient may have an allergic reaction to the sclerosing agent. This risk is greater in patients who have a history of allergic reactions.
5) Pain: A few patients may experience moderate to severe pain and some bruising around the injection site. The veins may be tender to touch after the treatment and an uncomfortable sensation may be felt along the vein route. This pain is usually temporary lasting 1 to 7 days.
