PRP or Platelet-Rich Plasma is an important treatment modality for Anti-Aging Medicine, Orthopedic, Dentistry, Hair Restoration, and many other medical specialties. The initial process is the same, regardless of the procedure being performed. A sample of blood is drawn from a patient’s vein, just as in a normal lab test blood draw. The blood is processed using sterile filters and a high-speed centrifuges to obtain only the platelet-rich serum, which is a gold color.
What Can PRP Be Used For?
The platelets are a blood component that contains a variety of powerful growth factor proteins and peptides. When injected into a damaged part of the body, they cause healing and rejuvenation. Orthopedists inject PRP to repair damaged joints. At Optimal Wellness MD, we use PRP to repair the aged facial skin (Vampire Facial), Rejuvenate the vagina and clitoris (O-Shot), Restore scalp hair (Vampire Hair), and rejuvenate the penis, treat erectile dysfunction and increase penis size in men (P-Shot). PRP can also be used to rejuvenate the neck and hand skin.
What To Consider When Having PRP Procedures
The most important thing about choosing to have a PRP procedure is to find a physician highly-skilled in performing the procedure. Dr. Kaye is trained by and is a member of the Cellular Medical Association, the organization that holds the patents for the O-Shot, P-Shot, and Vampire procedures. It's also critical to receive a PRP treatment performed by a physician using the best possible equipment. All PRP is NOT the same. A cheap centrifuge may only produce a 1-3x concentration of platelets. We use the cutting-edge Emcyte system which achieves a 10x concentration of platelets. So, our PRP is up to ten times as potent as our competitors PRP. This means you will get faster and more dramatic results from our treatments.
