PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is simply blood plasma with a concentration of platelets and other growth factors. To prepare PRP, blood is taken from a patient and spun in a centrifuge, which separates the platelets from the rest of the bloods components. These platelets are retrieved, activated and re-injected back into the selected areas of the patient.
We are offering the following PRP treatments developed by Dr. Charles Runels:
- PRP Facial Rejuvenation
- PRP Enhanced Breast Augmentation
- Vampire Facial
PRP enhanced facial rejuvenation, also known as the Vampire FaceLift®, has been featured on the ‘Dr. Oz’ & ‘The Doctors’. PRP is injected into areas of the face following injections with a HA (hyaluronic acid) filler, such as Juvederm or Radiesse.
While this procedure is not technically a ‘facelift’, the addition of PRP will not only increase volume in the skin, it also contains at least 8 growth factors that will continually work as a rejuvenating agent over a long period of time. While the growth factors go to work under the skin in the dermis building collagen, the epidermis (the outer most layer of skin) appears smoother and has a beautiful, healthy glow. Additionally, the skin takes on a ‘younger’ tone as new blood vessels form. Results last up to one year.
PRP enhanced breast augmentation, is known as the Vampire BreastLift™. This procedure is for women who are happy with the size of their breasts, but want to restore fullness, especially to the upper part of the breast and in the cleavage area. The PRP is injected into certain areas of the breast. The growth factors can also restore sensitivity to the breast that may have been lost from breastfeeding or previous implants and will give the skin a younger, healthier look. Results generally last from 9-18 months.
PRP is also used for female enhancement with a procedure called the O-Shot™. This treatment is primarily used to enhance a woman’s sexual response, but has been found to help with mild stress incontinence for up to 2 years! Using the same technology as the O-Shot™, the P-Shot™ is used for male rejuvenation and enhancement. If you’re looking for effective, long-lasting, medical male enhancement, the P-Shot™ may be right for you!
