What Optimal Skin Health Means To Us
Apex founder Dr. Karin Harp built a team with the same level of attention to detail and excellent customer service she holds herself to. Our goal is to exceed expectations with every visit. We treat everyone with respect, empathy, and an understanding that health is a collaborative effort in which the patient’s needs take center stage.
We work hard to earn your trust. We are delighted by the 5-star reviews we have received, but the greatest honor is when our patients refer their friends and family to our care.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)Eliminate crinkling skin, stimulate hair growth and rejuventate your collagen. It's not magic - it's harnessing your body's own plasma to restore itself.
There are no side-effects, because PRP uses your body's own resources to rejuvenate itself. The procedure itself causes minimal swelling that is gone within hours and results that can be seen in as little as one week and that last up to 18 months.
