Dr.Balharry attended the annual conference of the Canadian Association of Aesthetic Medicine on 7 , 8 of November, in Toronto. There was a big emphasis this year on the use of PRP (platelet rich plasma). This is something that we have been using in the MediSpa for quite a while both in cosmetics and in bone and joint problems such as arthritis and tendon injuries.
In cosmetics, it is used to improve the skin colour and quality. Examples include the Vampire facelift which is a combination of filler and PRP, the Vampire facial which uses microneedling and PRP and the O-shot for urinary incontinence.
As usual, a very informative programme allowing us to keep up to date with the latest in aesthetic practice.
