PRP at Elite Aesthetics
Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, is a natural blood product with medical and cosmetic uses. Its growing popularity is due to the short time the procedure takes, the lack of side effects, and the visible results. A small amount of a patient’s blood is drawn, and spun in the FDA-approved Eclipse PRP centrifuge system, to separate the red and white blood cells from the platelets and plasma. The latter two components are combined to create plasma with a 5 to 10 times greater concentration of platelets, growth factors, and active proteins, which provide a variety of benefits when injected or micro-needled back into the body.
The growth factors and proteins within the PRP stimulate a stem cells response that promotes the regeneration of tissue, collagen growth, new blood vessel formation and the acceleration of wound healing. Growth factors play an important part in helping to regulate cellular growth and maintain a healthy skin structure and function, promote the formation of collagen and elastin fibers and stimulate biochemical pathways that promote tissue repair and regeneration. Therefore, having the ability to reuse your own growth factors within the PRP can help to rewind the appearance of aging and wrinkles. Benefits of PRP include:
- Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
- Skin firming
- Skin tone and color
- Encouragement of collagen and volume loss
- Reduction of dark under eye circles
- Minimization of acne scarring and stretch marks
This revolutionary concept can also be used to treat male and female sexual dysfunction, to reinvigorate sexual desire, aid in vulvar rejuvenation and improve skin tone and contour in the breasts. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Lieman today!
The Priapus Shot® (P Shot)
Many men suffer from Erectile Dysfunction (ED), and for many, oral medications do very little to help and come with many side effects. According to a study from the Journal of Sexual Medicine, one out of every four under the age of 40 suffers from erectile dysfunction and this increases with age. Men may suffer from ED for multiple reasons such as high blood pressure, diabetes, kidney disease, and prostate cancer.
The Priapus Shot® (P-shot) is a lasting solution to help with sexual performance. Men who have received the Priapus Shot® have reported increased firmness, blood flow, and appearance of erections, in addition to increased sexual desire, stamina and pleasure. This procedure can also decrease the need for ED medications, and some have also reported an improvement or complete resolution of prostate discomfort or urinary incontinence. Contact us to schedule your P-Shot, and return to the fulfilling sex life you deserve!
How does the Priapus Shot® work?
The treatment begins with a quick blood draw to in order to obtain the Platelet Rich Plasma. PRP is then injected into areas of the penis that are numbed with local anesthetic cream, so that the shots cause little to no pain. The areas chosen are crucial for sexual response, and benefit from the growth of new tissue and blood vessels as a result. Many men report changes in girth and length of the penis.
Does the Priapus Shot® hurt?
Men will tolerate this procedure very well as a topical numbing cream is applied prior to treatment and the needles that are used are very small. There is little to no discomfort.
When will I see results?
Improvements can be seen immediately, although there is usually a return to prior treatment status in 3-5 days as water is absorbed, and prior to the complete action of the fibroblasts to increase the size of the penis. Within 2-4 weeks more noticeable results will be seen.
How long do results of the Priapus Shot® last?
The results of this treatment should last 15-18 months, but results may vary and research documenting the longevity or results are ongoing.
The O Shot®
Suffering in the bedroom can be a taboo subject, but it doesn’t have to be as you are not alone! About 50% of women experience some degree of low libido and sexual dysfunction. The O-Shot® is the answer you’re looking for! It is a revolutionary, quick procedure for women who want to feel better in the bedroom, without the potential side effects of surgery. Whether it is due to age, pain, lack of arousal, vaginal dryness, or urinary dysfunction the O-shot® can be just the solution you never knew you needed.
What is the O-shot®?
The O-shot® is a non-surgical treatment that uses your own blood platelets to activate growth factors. The body reacts to the treated cells as it does to a wound and immediately starts repairing the tissue. The growth factors help to rejuvenate the female orgasm system, allowing more blood flow to the area, which results in increasing the area’s sensitivity. Since it’s your own growth factors being used, there are no side effects from the material injected.
What should I expect on the day of my treatment?
After your blood is drawn, it is separated by the FDA-approved Eclipse PRP centrifuge system to extract the Platelet Rich Plasma. The PRP is then injected into the area near the clitoris and into the upper vagina, which are both numbed with local anesthetic cream. These areas are crucial for sexual response, one of which is the “O-Spot”, a group of structures that activate the orgasm system. The PRP rejuvenates the stem cells in the vagina and clitoral tissues, improving their functionality potential.
What type of results should I expect?
Women who have received the O-Shot® notice improvements almost immediately, and report an increase in libido, the strength of their orgasms, arousal from clitoral stimulation, and natural lubrication! Some also report smoother, younger-appearing vulvar skin, and a tighter vaginal opening, clinically known as the introitus. The O-Shot® can also help decrease and resolve urinary incontinence when combined with pelvic therapy.
Will the O-shot® hurt?
Believe it or not, but the vagina is not very sensitive! Once the area is numbed the O-shot® is tolerated very well. Some patients report a mild, brief pinching sensation, but that’s it!
Is there downtime?
There is no downtime at all! Go and enjoy the results!
How long will my results last?
Results have been reported to last up to 12-18 months, but results may vary and research documenting the longevity or results are ongoing.
