WHAT IS PLATELET RICH PLASMA?

Definition of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and why we should consider it for our rejuvenation?
Definition of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and why we should consider it for our rejuvenation?

Increased knowledge of what the final outcome should be, has led to the dramatic change in the concept of rejuvenation. Our goals are solidified, and with the interaction of the internet and social media, we have been allowed to feel confident in our process and sensibility thereof.

This thoughtful exchange of experience, both positive and negative, have afforded us a new outlet for research, as well as understanding and compassion to take place, leading to the achievement of the quality of life we deserve and desire. With this in mind, I began the necessary process of what I call “Whole Body Organic Rejuvenation.” This is a progressive, modern, and comprehensive way to preserve, improve, and enjoy your body forever.

Looking and feeling younger is a valuable objective that starts from within. This fact points us toward an internalized mode of systematic thinking and practice that utilizes the organic resources of our own bodies.

By combining fat with tremendous amount of stem cells and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) derived from ones own body, the ideal treatment for rejuvenation occurs – which is natural in appearance and texture, immunologically compatible, and long lasting without risk of infection! 

PRP has been used independently for a variety of facial aesthetic procedures, from reducing edema and ecchymosis post facelift to treating facial wrinkles/rhytides.

Unfortunately, the aging process does not stop above the neck. It affects every single part of our body. This is why, it is monumentally important to address whole body in rejuvenation process, hence using your own body material (autologous fat, stem cells, and platelet-rich plasma (PRP), in one setting, we can address sign of aging to the face, neck, décolleté line, hands, and hair, as well as significantly improving your sexual well-being.

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is a “growth factor cocktail”, including platelet-derived growth factor, transforming growth factor-b1 and 2, vascular endothelial growth factor, thrombospondin, and epidermal growth factor that enhances cellular proliferative function and angiogenesis (new blood vessels formation) to initiate the healing and rejuvenation process in our body. 

A double-blind placebo-controlled randomized ordered trial found that PRP was able to significantly improve hair regrowth in alopecia areata significantly better than both placebo or steroid cream. Similarly, several studies have seen enhanced hair growth in androgenic alopecia.

By using Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), we can address sexual problems in men (P-Shot) and women (O Shot). “The Orgasm Shot® (O Shot®)” procedure is a very specific method of using Platelet Rich Plasma to rejuvenate the vagina and help relieve women with urinary incontinence and sexual problems. The P Shot enhancement increases circulation within the penis producing a healthier organ, resulting in a stronger and long lasting erection. 

PRP is obtained by centrifugation of whole blood to obtain five to seven times concentration of autologous platelets suspended in a small volume of plasma. Before injection, platelets are activated using calcium chloride and bovine thrombin to trigger degranulation of a granules to turn PRP into gel – platelet rich fibrin matrix (PRFM). Activated PRP must be injected very quickly before it thickens and cannot be passed through the needle. Platelet Rich Plasma is derived from your own blood, making it safe and effective. “The medical research contains no reports of serious side effects from PRP with an FDA approved kit – EVER.” says Dr. Charles Runnels, who is the pioneer in the use of blood-derived growth factors for the purpose of rejuvenation. 

Whole Body Organic Rejuvenation is a method that seeks to debunk the myth surrounding the aging process. The key to this approach is understanding that aging is not targeted or isolated within one single feature, but instead, affects the entirety of our bodies both inside and out. Through the manipulation of natural material extracted from the body, we are able to address various signs of aging by counteracting them with materials that are compatible and nonthreatening. The goal is to treat our imperfections using resources and practices that are easily accepted by our bodies, as opposed to using harsh alternatives that jeopardize the natural look and function of our physicality.
