Dr. Tina West treats a patient who had a spot removed on his nose for biopsy. It left a red mark which would normally take several months to heal. So, Dr. West used the V-beam pulsed-dye laser to get rid of the redness, and at the same time it also flattens out any raised or indented quality of the scar. The V-Beam is great for any type of scar that is still pink or red (including acne scars) to erase them without even breaking the skin and with no downtime, and stretch marks that are still red (early) as well.

PRP—Whats all the hype? Platelet-rich plasma is rich in growth factors that come from your own blood. You may have first heard about it on the Kardashians when they received the "Vampire Facelift," and have likely seen it mentioned in beauty magazines and on social media.
What is it used for? PRP is used as an adjunct to microneedling skin treatments when it is applied after creating channels into the deeper layers of skin, promoting collagen growth and augmenting microneedling results for smoother texture and more even skin tone. At The West Institute, we use PRP after "regular" microneedling as well as Infini radiofrequency microneedling which has the added benefit of SKIN TIGHTENING.
We also use PRP to encourage hair growth in women and men who have noticed hair thinning; in combination with topical products and oral supplements (Nutrafol) that have been shown to stimulate hair growth.
