The Power of Platelet-Rich Plasma
The human body has a remarkable capacity to heal itself. Regeneration of new tissue is accomplished by the natural production of stem cells. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) involves the application of concentrated platelets rich in bioactive proteins, which release growth factors to stimulate cellular regeneration and accelerate tissue repair. PRP was initially used in wound healing, dentistry and the treatment of sports injuries, but its use for treatment has now evolved to address aesthetic concerns and physiological dysfunction. PRP is one of the most advanced, effective natural treatments for cellular rejuvenation throughout the body.
How Does PRP Work?
A PRP treatment begins with a simple blood draw and can be completed within an hour. Your blood is spun in a unique centrifuge that separates plasma and platelets from the rest of the blood. The plasma, now highly concentrated with rich platelets, is collected in syringes and is injected back into your tissues where it's needed. The growth factors stimulate stem cells to create new, youthful tissue in areas like the face and scalp, and in sex organs, muscles and joints. It's like turning back the clock, and what was old and damaged is repaired and made new. It's the essence of regenerative medicine, and the beauty of it is the PRP procedure uses what your body has produced, so your body will readily accept the treatment without reaction or rejection.
PRP procedures are minimally invasive and, typically, patients experience very little discomfort with no down time.
Advantages of Using PRP
Because PRP is extracted from your own blood, it alleviates the risk of allergic reaction, rejection or skin sensitivity. More than 60,000 procedures involving the injection of PRP into various parts of the body have been performed with no side effects or complications reported.
PRP therapy is swiftly becoming one of the most popular treatment methods to address a variety of health and cosmetic issues, including:
- Wrinkled or sagging skin
- Frown lines, crow's feet
- Erectile dysfunction
- Urinary incontinence
- Sexual wellness
- Hair regrowth
Research suggests that as the study of this treatment continues, PRP therapies eventually may be able to treat myriad other medical conditions in addition to the ones listed above.
The Priapus Shot®
The form and function of your penis can have a dramatic effect on your relationships. Being unable to achieve or maintain a satisfactory erection or even feeling that the size of your penis is inadequate can affect your self-esteem in and out of the bedroom.
In the past, men had very few options for treating erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation or addressing penis girth. These issues are private, personal and sometimes might feel embarrassing. It is quite normal to be a bit uncomfortable talking to your doctor about sexual dysfunction. Today, advanced technology allows expert physicians to offer men solutions for a variety of sexual issues!
Dr. Lisbeth Roy discusses the P-Shot for men Studio PRP
The Priapus Shot® is designed to deliver lasting improvements in sexual performance for men, especially in those who have lost function due to an enlarged prostate, prostate cancer, the after-effects of surgery, drug side effects and other conditions, including diabetes.
Unlike many of the other treatments for male sexual dysfunction, the Priapus Shot® is a stress-free treatment. You don't have to fear side effects, such as stroke, headaches, heart attacks or erections that last for hours. Many men experience added benefits from the Priapus Shot®, achieving not only improved sexual function, but a boost in desire as well
The Priapus Shot® procedure begins with a quick and easy blood draw. Then, using a proprietary technique, the growth factors are extracted from the blood and concentrated into the PRP. The PRP is then injected into areas of the penis that are most important for sexual response. These areas are numbed with a local anesthetic cream before injection, yielding little or no discomfort during the procedure.
How Does the Priapus Shot® Work?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) contains many growth factors and healing factors, and it has regenerative abilities and thus stimulates healing and rejuvenation. The resulting benefits typically include tissue growth that increases growth of new blood vessels and improved circulation within the penis, stronger erections, increased sensation and pleasure, and enhanced sexual performance. Some men report changes in girth and length of the penis. Many of these benefits are experienced immediately after receiving the injection. And, because the treatment uses the patient's own blood-derived plasma, it is non-allergenic and free of harmful side effects.
Benefits of Priapus Shot®
Treatment plans for optimal sexual wellness are tailored to suit each man's individual needs, and every man's experience will vary. Most men report these benefits following the procedure and post-treatment protocol:
- Increased firmness of erection
- Increased blood flow and circulation
- Improved sexual capabilities
- Increased sexual stamina
- Increased sensation and pleasure
- Enhanced appearance
- Improved or resolved prostate discomfort
- Improved or resolved urinary incontinence
Managing sexual dysfunction, along with maintaining a healthy lifestyle, can open the doors for a fulfilling sexual life well into a man's 80s. So, have a conversation with your trusted medical specialist, and begin to enjoy your sex life again!
Scientists have known for years that unipotent stem cells lie dormant in the skin and provide the building blocks for healing when you sustain a burn or cut. Until recently, physicians had no convenient way to stimulate these stem cells to grow new tissue.
The Vampire Series is among the first set of procedures to harnesses this technology in the field of aesthetics, using the growth factors found in the blood - specifically the platelets - to activate the unipotent stem cells in the skin and stimulate these cells to grow new, younger-looking skin.
The Vampire FaceLift®
The Vampire FaceLift®
is a custom-designed procedure that combines the science of hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, such Juvederm®
, the technology of PRP and the artful eye of a skilled physician to deliver youthful, natural beauty that is as unique as you are. The dermal filler is used to create the shape by restoring volume lost in the aging process. The PRP is used to stimulate the regenerative process of the skin, creating younger skin that glows with vitality.
The Vampire Facial®
The Vampire Facial® is a very simple yet incredibly effective strategy for rejuvenating the face. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) derived from your own blood is applied and worked into the skin with a professional micro-needling tool. The micro-needling tool creates micro punctures in the skin, thus activating the collagen and elastin cascades to create new cells and rejuvenation. The PRP is used to simulate stem cells that exist in the face.
PRP is rapidly becoming one of the most useful natural treatments in aesthetics. Each of these procedures promises to turn back the hands of time. With this technique, isolating elements from the blood, which can then be injected below wrinkles, folds and even acne scars, can rejuvenate the skin. Because PRP is extracted from your own blood, it alleviates the risk of allergic reaction or skin sensitivity.
The Vampire Breast Lift®
The Vampire Breast Lift combines the science of unipotent stem cells and hyaluronic acid fillers to deliver a custom-designed procedure that not only restores a more youthful contour and volume but also improves skin quality.
First, volume is added in all the right places. Then, polishing and refining steps of the sculpting process are completed using platelet rich plasma (PRP). PRP ultimately contributes to the appearance of a younger-looking breasts, improving skin quality, color, texture and sensitivity.
PRP for hair regrowth Studio PRP
Is PRP Hair Regeneration Right for You?
Hair is a fleeting luxury for many people. Millions of people - both men and women - struggle with hair loss. The reasons for hair loss vary and can include disease, genetics, stress and hormonal imbalance. Whatever the cause, everyone wants a solution and to enjoy a full head of hair.
For women, hair loss can be absolutely devastating. A woman's hair is like her crown - it can define her whole look, feel and style. As any woman who is suffering from hair loss knows, thinning hair is a serious problem that can cause low self-esteem and deep embarrassment if left untreated.
Hair loss seems to be one of those inevitable effects of aging that most men cannot escape. It may not affect some as early as others, but it is fact that almost every man will likely face as the years tick by. However, new technology offers a permanent, effective and organic solution.
Studio Scalp Hair Regrowth Procedure
People who desire a non-surgical regrowth strategy that is safe and effective choose the Studio Scalp Hair Regrowth Procedure. This innovative procedure combines PRP and nutrients injected into the scalp to encourage hair growth. Effective for both male and female pattern hair loss, PRP have also regrown hair in people who have alopecia areata, eyebrow hypotrichosis and other causes of non-hereditary hair loss. Effective for both male and female pattern hair loss, PRP have also regrown hair in people who have alopecia areata, eyebrow hypotrichosis and other causes of non-hereditary hair loss.
How Does Regenerative Hair Growth Work?
The regenerative hair regrowth treatment takes about 90 minutes to complete. First, a blood sample is obtained and is specially processed to produce the PRP. A local anesthetic is then administered to completely numb the scalp
treatment area. The PRP and nutrients are combined and then administered via a series of injections over the full scalp or in a localized treatment area such as the eyebrows or beard.
The recovery from the procedure is typically uneventful. Pain is easily managed in most cases with non-narcotic analgesic medication such as ibuprofen. Some mild swelling of the forehead is occasionally seen one to two days after injections. This is normal and resolves within 48 hours. Avoiding vigorous activity is recommended until the swelling is gone. There is no other downtime or noticeable effects of the procedure. Patients can wash their hair normally immediately after the injections.
New hair growth can be seen in as early as two months, but it is typically evident in four to eight months and will continue to improve up to a year after treatment. To date, results have been maintained without additional injections for up to two years in many patients, but no long-term data are available yet to conclude that hair growth is permanent.
What Types of Conditions Respond to the Regenerative Hair Regrowth Treatment?
The Regenerative Hair Regrowth technique is a versatile tool in the treatment of hair loss for a number of causes, including:
- Male pattern hair loss, especially in the early stages of balding, or anytime there is a lot of miniaturized hair on the scalp
- Female pattern hair loss at all stages of hair loss
- Hypotrichosis (fine/reduced hairs) of the eyebrows or beard
- Alopecia areata and alopecia totalis
- Metabolic causes of hair loss, including iron deficiency and medication-induced hair loss
Before the Studio Scalp Hair Regrowth Procedure, there were very few effective non-surgical options in regard to hair loss and subsequent treatment. This new method is an ideal option for relieving the trauma surrounding thinning hair.
Sexual Wellness for Women
Sex has become a centerpiece of modern culture. It is up for discussion everywhere: on the radio, on TV, in the movies and even in unexpected places, like at the office or in schools. But the one place sex isn't being discussed is in your doctor's office - an omission that can keep you from achieving and maintaining an optimal sex life - for your whole life. Female sexual dysfunction is not a small problem: 50% of women experience some degree of low libido and sexual dysfunction.
If your sex life - regardless of your age - has taken a nosedive, either because it is painful or unexciting due to lack of arousal, or if you suffer from vaginal dryness or urinary dysfunction, there is a new, simple treatment that can bring desire back and so much more!
The O-Shot® is a revolutionary nonsurgical treatment that uses a patient's own blood platelets to activate growth factors that rejuvenate the female orgasm system, allowing more blood to flow to the organ, enhancing sensitivity and delivering dramatic improvement in sexual function.
The O-Shot® procedure begins with a simple blood draw. Then, using a proprietary technique, platelets are separated and concentrated. The PRP that contains growth factors that are extracted from your blood is then injected into an area near the clitoris and into the area of the upper vagina that is most important for sexual response. These areas are numbed with a local anesthetic cream before injection, and patients to experience little or no discomfort during the procedure.
How Does the O-Shot® Work?
The doctor injects the PRP into an area called the "O-Spot," which is a collection of structures that activate the orgasm system. The process of injection triggers the platelets to release seven different growth factors that then activate the stem cells located in the vaginal and clitoral tissues to regenerate and thus become "younger" with improved functional potential.
Women often enjoy some effects of the O-Shot® almost immediately as the growth factors begin to rejuvenate and enhance sexual response. Women who receive the O-Shot® procedure have reported an increase in their sexual response within days and weeks of the treatment, and, for many, the increase is dramatic.
Benefits of the O-Shot® Procedure
Although each woman's experience may differ in some ways, many patients report:
- Greater arousal from clitoral stimulation
- Younger, smoother skin on the vulva (lips of the vagina)
- A tighter introitus (vaginal opening)
- Stronger orgasm
- More frequent orgasm
- Increased sexual desire
- Increased ability to have a vaginal orgasm
- Decreased pain for those with dyspareunia (painful intercourse)
- Increased natural lubrication
- Decreased or resolved urinary incontinence (both urge and stress problems)
If you are seeking solutions to urinary incontinence, the O-Shot®, in conjunction with pelvic therapy, has been proven to be effective for treating both urinary incontinence and stress incontinence, and it can bring women relief for the long term. In fact, after the O-Shot®, some women have reported a complete reversal of symptoms, eliminating the need for medication, and, in many cases, surgery.
PRP for PAIN Conditions
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections are replacing traditional orthopedic surgery in many instances for conditions that range from soft tissue injuries (tendonitis, muscle tears, ligamentous injuries) to various joint afflictions, such as a torn meniscus or mild to moderate arthritis of the joints.
PRP Therapy Injections
Pain-free PRP treatment typically requires two PRP injections into the injured tissue, depending on the severity of the injury. The injections will likely be four to six weeks apart. Occasionally, a third PRP injection is needed.
Regenerative techniques can be tailored to meet each patient's orthopedic needs wherever he or she is experiencing pain.
