What are PRP Treatments?

PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. PRP is the latest cutting edge technology in hair restoration and regrowth with numerous clinical studies supporting its safety and efficacy. Along with other medical hair loss therapies, PRP is one of the only treatments that uses the body’s natural repair mechanism to significantly improve hair regrowth and slow progression of hair thinning. PRP consists of growth factors, cytokines and bio-restorative molecules extracted from blood to stimulate hair follicle re-growth and thickening of existing hair with little down time. The physician draws a small amount of blood and isolates the red cells from a platelet concentrate, embedded in its own plasma. The entire process takes less than 10 minutes.

Since the PRP is processed from the patient’s own blood, there is no risk of allergy or rejection with this treatment. The extracted PRP is high in mesenchymal stem cells, and autologous blood products that contain essential and specific growth factors that assist in regeneration of the hair follicle and inhibition of further shedding. It has also been shown in small studies to help thicken already existing hair. While there are no guarantees and every patient responds to treatment differently, PRP is an exciting, quick, non-surgical treatment with minimal down time and low risks or complications.

The PRP system we utilize is a dual-spin technology with a patented gel that allows better separation of red blood cells to produce a pure highly concentrated PRP free of cell contamination. Our PRP system produces an industry leading platelet-recovery yield, maintaining healthy platelets and thus resulting in maximum possible hair growth. Additionally, the tube uses an anticoagulant of more neutral pH, resulting in a more pain-free experience. Best of all, the process takes just minutes!

PRP Skin Rejuvenation

Similar to PRP hair restoration, this cutting-edge preventative and corrective therapy harnesses the body’s natural healing process for complete rejuvenation of the skin leading to improved texture, firmness and elasticity. Once extracted, the PRP is then either injected or micro-needled onto the skin surface. The growth factor and cytokine-rich PRP aids in regeneration of the skin cells resulting in renewed glowing skin. Dr. Mays will fully evaluate your skin tone and texture to determine the best technique for your PRP skin rejuvenations. Recommended every 3-4 weeks.

Botox®/Dysport®

Botox®/Dysport® is a simple and safe procedure that can be performed during a routine visit, with no downtime and little to no discomfort. Botox®/Dysport® works by temporarily reducing the contractions of the muscles that cause persistent frown lines, forehead wrinkles, or smile lines around the eyes. If treatments are not continued, the muscles will gradually return to normal function and wrinkles will return. Botox can also be used to treat excessive sweating and jaw pain. Our goal with Botox®/Dysport® is to give our patients a “softer and relaxed look”, not eliminate movement.

Injectable Fillers

Restylane® & Juvéderm®

Dermal facial fillers have been called “liquid facelifts” because they offer many of the benefits of a surgical facelift without the downtime. These fillers are commonly used in combination with Botox. The essential difference between Botox and dermal fillers is that Botox is injected into the muscle to prevent the movement that causes wrinkles, whereas dermal fillers are injected directly into the wrinkle or depression to fill it.

Kybella®

KYBELLA® (deoxycholic acid) injection, the first and only FDA-approved injectable drug available that contours and improves the appearance of moderate to severe submental fullness, sometimes referred to as a “double chin,” is now available. Submental fullness is a common, yet under-treated aesthetic condition that is often resistant to diet and exercise alone and influenced by several factors, including aging, genetics and weight gain.

PRP Facial Rejuvenation

PRP is a natural product created from your own body. A small amount of blood is drawn from you and placed in a sterile tube that is spun down in a centrifuge to separate the different components of the blood. Red and white blood cells are divided from the platelets and the plasma (the clear fluid). This plasma now contains a higher than normal number of platelets and is called platelet rich plasma, or PRP.

PRP Hair Restoration

The PRP system we utilize has shown to improve hair shaft length, increase hair density, and increase follicular units. The system's patented gel technology efficiently separates red blood cells from PRP and produces an industry leading platelet-recovery yield of 85 percent per unit volume, increasing its purity and minimizing injection discomfort. Best of all, our system was designed to be easy on our patients. The preparation process takes just a few minutes with as little as 10cc of blood draw. The result is a more efficacious and comfortable PRP experience.
