PRP Therapy delivers growth factors, using your own fibrin and stem cells, leading to tissue regeneration and tightening.

The body’s rejuvenation ability can be potentiated with the delivery of growth factors and stem cells. PRP provides a mechanism for doing this using your own cells and tissue.  The PRP contains platelets which are rich in growth factors, stem cells, and fibrin. Since this is not foreign tissue, foreign tissue reactions are eliminated.  The growth factors as well as the fibrin provide the initial stimulus which is potentiated over time with the stem cells. This system has been used safely in hundreds of thousands of procedures worldwide.  PRP has been used alone or with hyaluronic acid filler and or fractional lasers to rejuvenate the skin and give lift.  PRP has also shown efficacy in inducing hair regrow, breast rejuvenation or enhancement, wound healing, and in conditions such as lichen sclerosis, again through the growth factors and stem cells delivered.

EWSTExtracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy enhances collagen type I and III production and nitric oxide production as well as vascular proliferation. In addition, EWST can provide a more regenerative cell population locally by enhancing mesenchymal stem cell activity and preventing and counteracting degenerative processes. These effects alone or in combination with PRP are used to decrease wrinkle formation, increase tightening, and increase collagen production.  In addition, EWST has been used with coolsculpting which induces cryolipolysis to provide tightening and decrease cellulite.
