Why I do what I love to do!
By: Dr. Dhai Barr
When I became a naturopath, it was an obvious choice to maintain the most natural skin care regime I could. This was a way I could look and feel my greatest. I found myself involved in exciting cutting-edge technology, rejuvenating medicine for skin and aging.
While with the Naturopathic Academy of Therapeutic Injection, I started exploring the field of PRP (platelet rich plasma). I thought if we can inject PRP into the joints to repair themselves, what can the needle arts do for the skin? I went to Paris, France, to learn the nuances of mesotherapy. Mesotherapy treatment is used in France for many medical conditions from asthma and gastritis to sports injuries. Here in the USA, it was primarily thought of as a cellulite cure. Because of this apparent limitation, it lost favor, as it wasn’t as successful as it could have been.
I was intrigued with a treatment done in Paris called Meso Glow. Meso Glow delivers small drops nutrients into the skin with mesotherapy. A treatment is like a nutrient-rich IV for the face. So what would happen if we added PRP, or the addition of platelet-rich plasma, to a Meso Glow?
