Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a substance used to promote healing when injected. Plasma is a component of your blood that contains special proteins that help your blood to clot. It also contains proteins that support cell growth.
PRP can be used for many different body treatments, including our specialty services listed below.
The O-Shot is a nonsurgical simple procedure that uses the growth factors each woman has in her own body to stimulate vaginal and clitoral rejuvenation to activate the orgasm system. Female sexual dysfunction is not a small problem. 50% of women experience some degree of low libido and dysfunction.
The O-Shot procedure begins with a simple blood draw. Then platelets are separated and concentrated. The Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) containing growth factors extracted from your blood is then applied into an area near the clitoris and in the area of the upper vagina that is most important for the sexual response.
The doctor applies the PRP into an area called the O-Spot which is a collection of structures that activate the orgasm system. This process triggers the platelets to release seven different growth factors that then activate the stem cells located in the vaginal and clitoral tissues to regenerate and thus become “younger” with improved functional potential.
Women often enjoy some effects of the O-Shot almost immediately, as the growth factors begin to rejuvenate and enhance the sexual response. Women receiving O-Shot procedure have reported an increase in their sexual response within days and weeks of the treatment and for many, the increase is dramatic.
Although each woman’s experience may differ in some ways, many patients report:
The Priapus Shot (also known as the P-Shot) is designed to deliver lasting improvements in sexual performance to men, especially those who have lost function due to an enlarged prostate, prostate cancer, the after-effects of surgery, drug side effects and other conditions such as diabetes.
The P-Shot procedure begins with a quick and easy blood draw. Then the growth factors are extracted from your blood and concentrated into the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). PRP is then applied into areas of the penis that are most important for the sexual response.
PRP contains many growth factors and healing factors. PRP has regenerative abilities and thus stimulates healing and rejuvenation. The resulting benefits typically include tissue growth that increases growth of new blood vessels and improved circulation within the penis, stronger erections, increased sensation and pleasure, and enhanced sexual performance. Some men report changes in girth and length of the penis. Many of these benefits are experienced immediately after receiving the injection. And, because the treatment uses the patient’s own blood derived plasma, it is non-allergenic and free of harmful side effects.
Although each man’s experience varies, most men report these benefits following the procedure and post-treatment protocol:
Rejuvenate, increase collagen production and reduce signs of aging with a Vampire Facial.
MD Coté Medical Laser & Spa will begin with a microneedling process, which puts the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) back into the skin. The growth factors in the PRP then activate stem cells already in the skin, tricking them into thinking there’s been an injury, and new younger tissue is generated. After the healing process, you’re left with younger looking skin. The effects of the procedure improve for two to three months and last for at least one to two years.
Some of the many advantages of the Vampire Facial include:
The Vampire Facelift is a non-surgical facial rejuvenation technique that has helped many women and men look as young as they feel. It uses injections of the patient’s own Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to spur growth of new, healthy skin cells and increase blood flow, resulting in glowing, youthful skin tone. Meanwhile, the treatment itself is quick and convenient.
The entire Vampire Facelift should only take about an hour and a half. Because there is little or no side effects or downtime, most patients can return right away to their everyday activities.
The Vampire Facelift has helped many to achieve rejuvenation without any report of severe side effects or complications. Injections of your own PRP carry virtually no risk, and injections of hyaluronic acid-based filler carry very low risks that can be assessed on an individual basis long before your treatment.
Most patients will notice improvement in the texture, coloration and volume of their skin right away. The treatment will also provide a gradual overall improvement to the appearance and feel of the skin as the growth factors continue to stimulate your body’s collagen production. Patients can expect their treatment to last about two years, and can return for a second treatment a few months after the first for more pronounced results.
Most anyone in good health who is showing signs of aging are candidates for this procedure. Some of the many advantages of the Vampire Facelift include:
The Vampire Breast Lift procedure is made up of three steps. First, Dr. Coté evaluates the shape of your breast to determine where it can be enhanced. Next, she prepares the PRP for injection. As with other procedures involving the injection of PRP, this is accomplished by isolating growth factors from the patient’s blood. Finally, the PRP is injected into the patient’s breast.
Once injected, the growth factors work like magic to cause increased collagen and new blood flow. The result? Younger-appearing skin and increased volume of fatty tissue. The effects of the procedure improve for two to three months and last for at least one to two years.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) offers a simple and effective solution to female urinary incontinence. Let the power of emerging regenerative medical procedures work for you to solve this condition. Any woman that struggles with urinary incontinence knows that it is one of those dreaded conditions of aging that you would rather never experience and it is one that seems rather hopeless. But you don’t have to suffer and you don’t have struggle – the O-Shot® treats urinary incontinence effectively.
Urinary incontinence is characterized by involuntary leakage of urine from the bladder. This includes small amounts of urine that are dispelled with laughing or coughing, as well as the complete inability to control your bladder. Urinary incontinence is not uncommon and can be caused by aging, pregnancy, menopause and other medical conditions.
PRP has successfully treated, and even reversed, conditions of incontinence for thousands of women. Dr Coté injects PRP—sourced from your own blood—into the space around the urethra. The injections trigger the platelets to release seven different growth factors that then activate the stem cells to stimulate the tissues to reverse some of the changes that lead to urinary incontinence.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a treatment derived from a person’s own blood platelets to enhance hair growth as a stand alone treatment. In the field of cell therapy and tissue regeneration, research is continuing to progress regarding the use of PRP’s ability to attract, stimulate and orchestrate stem cell activity to improve wound healing and naturally rejuvenate skin and hair follicles.
A small sample of blood is obtained from the patient. This sample is processed to separate the platelets and plasma from other components like red blood cells. Platelets may then be activated, releasing powerful molecules which have profound biologic effects on hair follicles and skin. This powerful cocktail of growth factors, cytokines and other proteins is painlessly injected into the area of scalp where weak hair follicles exist. Microneedling of the skin is performed immediately following the injection to activate the platelets. The comfortable, outpatient procedure takes less than one hour to perform and patients may resume all activities, including workouts, shampooing, etc., immediately afterward as there is no needed recovery time.
