Platelet Rich Plasma Treatments (PRP)
In general, Platelet Rich Plasma Treatments (PRP) use a growth factors patient’s own blood to rejuvenate the skin, grow hair, and treat sexual dysfunction.
A patients blood is drawn and placed in a special double-centrifuge machine to spin the blood down and separate out the platelet rich plasma where the grow factors are. After a topical numbing agent is applied, this grow factor rich blood is then injected via cannula or a needle into the patients face, neck, decollate, or hands where these growth factors upon injection activate stem cells which stimulate collagen production in the skin and improves blood flow to the skin.
What it Treats:
- Skin: Texture, Tone and Hollowness under the Eyes
- Hair Loss
- Male and Female Sexual Dysfunction
Varies Depending on Treatment / 30 Minutes to 1 Hour
None. May have some bruising and soreness.
- Diminished Appearance of Fine Lines
- Restore Volume Loss
- Decrease the Appearance of Scars
- Improve Skin Tone and Texture
- Helps Tear Trough Hollowness (A personal favorite at BCM to help tire eyes)
Some results are immediate but the results continue to improve for up to 12 weeks post-treatment. Since it is the patients own blood, there is no risk of allergic reaction.
PRP Hair Restoration
Want to grow your own hair back in those thinning spots? PRP is used alone or in conjunction with A-Cell to promote hair growth in balding/thinning scalps. This non-surgical procedure that promotes natural hair growth is done with a topical and local scalp block to minimize the discomfort. Most women can get correction with just one treatment; men will typically need 3-4 treatments.
Named after the Greek God of virility the Priapus shot involves injecting PRP into the penis. This improves blood flow to the penis to improve blood flow which helps men maintain stronger, firmer erections. It can enhance the length and girth of the penis and increase sensation.
The Orgasm shot or O-shot for women takes PRP and injects it into specific locations vaginally to improve orgasm, helps vaginal dryness and stress urinary incontinence and increase libido.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Does it hurt?
We use anesthetic but some mild pain may occur during treatment.
Does it work?
Yes! The healthier your platelets are, the faster/better results are seen. Depending on the treatment, results can be seen in 2-3 days but since the body is repairing itself, full results can take 2-4 months.
What can I do to get the best results?
Stop smoking, do not take medications like fish oil or NSAIDS for a week prior to treatment as this can interfere with platelet function.
Disclaimer: Individual results may vary depending on patient body type, the number of treatments, or the duration of treatments. For additional information on procedure effectiveness and expected results please consult a member of the Boat Club Medical Spa team.
