Regenerative medicine is a branch of medicine that uses your body’s natural cells and healing properties to its advantage. Regenerative treatments focus on rebuilding your tissues to help them function more efficiently, especially as you age. There are several treatments that use regenerative medicine available at S. Aesthetics.MD and your provider can help you explore each one in the context of your health.
Many regenerative treatments utilize a substance that comes from your blood called platelet-rich plasma (PRP). PRP is becoming extremely popular and has many clinical and cosmetic applications. It consists of the liquid plasma from your blood as well as a high concentration of platelets, the type of cell responsible for clotting your blood when you get injured. The platelets release growth factors that repair tissue damage and help grow new, healthy tissues.
The PRP in your regenerative medicine treatments comes from your own body. Your provider draws a sample of your blood and puts the sample in a centrifuge where it spins rapidly for several minutes. Once it comes out, it is no longer a uniform liquid. Instead, it includes several layers. The layer containing many platelets is the PRP, and your provider separates it to prepare it for your injections.
The team at S. Aesthetics.MD uses regenerative medicine for several of the treatments that they offer. Options using regenerative methods include:
The O-Shot, or Orgasm-Shot, is a PRP injection for women’s wellness. Your provider delivers the injection into your vaginal tissues to treat a low sex drive, urinary incontinence, vaginal dryness, and more.
The P-Shot, or Priapus-Shot, is the men’s version of the O-Shot. You get the shot in your penis to treat erectile dysfunction.
The Vampire Face-lift involves injections of PRP and a hyaluronic acid filler directly into your face to promote a more youthful skin tone and texture. PRP helps new collagen formation to keep your face plump and shapely.
Research shows that injections of PRP into balding areas of the scalp can help promote hair growth by repairing your follicles.
