Many significant innovations for rejuvenating skin has been the outcome of more and more people seeking out non-invasive procedures. One of the latest techniques involves PRP or platelet-rich-plasma as soft tissue filler. The science behind this started from wound repair studies indicating PRP is rich in growth factors that activate and rejuvenates cells in the body. As these PRP growth factors are released, they induce the production of collagen, generate new capillary blood supply and increase retention of moisture, all adding to skin rejuvenation by helping skin to regenerate itself.

Some patients experience a very high level of pain from muscle spasms right around the implant and chest muscles. A new technique using Botox during the breast augmentation procedure can help to reduce some of this pain. It’s known as “Botox-assisted” breast augmentation because the surgeon injects Botox into the muscle at some point during the procedure.
