PRP And EZ Gel Treatments
Your Blood Is The Key
To A Radiant Complexion!
All of these regenerative procedures start with obtaining blood through a blood draw, which is then run through a spinning process called centrifugation to isolate the desired components of the blood.
PRP and PRF can both be injected or microneedled into the skin where facial and skin rejuvenation is desired. They can also be microneedled and injected into the scalp to stimulate hair follicle growth. They can also be applied after laser procedures to augment results and speed up healing. EZGel can be particularly effective when injected into areas where not only skin rejuvenation is desired, but where volume has been lost, such as in undereye hollows as it not only helps with rejuvenation but gives an immediately improved appearance.

The End Result
With PRP and PRF, results won’t be immediately noticeble. It usually takes a couple of weeks to begin to see the effects and multiple treatments over time can help build results even further.
PRP, PRF and EZGel given by injection, microneedling, or used in conjunction with lasers can help to:
- Blend away acne scars
- Reduce the appearance of sun damage
- Diminish fine lines and wrinkles
- Reduce pore size and improve skin tone
- Increase skin firmness and elasticity
- Help restore volume, such as in the undereyes
The End Result
We recommend a peel to accelerate the natural exfoliation process which will keep your skin looking fresh.
For those with sensitive skin or minor issues an enzyme peel produces the following results:
Controls acne, shrinks pores, and removes blackheads
Diminishes fine lines and wrinkles, and some scarring
Reduces age spots and redness
For those with more severe issues the chemical peel is best when it comes to:
Diminishing fine lines and wrinkles
Smoothing pigmentation and acne scars
Shrinking large pores
Tightening sagging skin
Depending on your skin type and need we can help find a treatment that is right for you.
What Are PRP and EZ Gel?
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) and EZGel all involve using a person’s own blood to create a concentrate of one’s own platelets, which then is injected into a specific area of the body to promote healing and tissue regeneration. Platelets are a type of blood cell that play a crucial role in clotting and wound healing due to the growth factors that they contain which enhance microcirculation and stimulate production of new collagen.
While PRF is similar to PRP, they are not the same. Some preparations of PRF contain a higher concentration of platelets and white blood cells, and form a gel-like consistency due to the presence of fibrin, which helps with application and retention at the treatment site.
EZGel is yet again different from PRP and PRF due to the addition of denatured albumin also from the patient’s own blood, which creates an even thicker and stiffer product. This allows the growth factors to be released in a “slow drip” fashion over the course of days to weeks, and also give an immediate appearance of more volume.
What is the recovery like?
There may be some redness, mild swelling and occasionally some bruising all of which are all likely to resolve within a few days. Taking oral arnica preparations that you can find from your local health food store can help with speeding up recovery process.
How many sessions will I need?
It really depends on the severity of the issue that is being addressed, but it may take 3 or more treatments to achieve best results (for example acne scarring or undereye hollows).
How long does it take?
It depends on the extent of the desired treatment, but usually takes about 45 minutes, longer in some cases.
How is urinary incontinence diagnosed?
The condition is diagnosed mainly on the pattern of symptoms. Keeping a urinary diary (a record of daily urination, urine accidents and fluid intake) can help your health care provider determine patterns and establish the working diagnosis. The provider will also ask questions about your general health, your history of incontinence, past surgeries, illnesses and any medication you're taking. A physical examination, including a pelvic exam, will be done, and a urine sample will be tested.
Sometimes other, more complicated tests may be needed to establish or confirm the diagnosis or to guide treatment.
How does incontinence relate to age?
Incontinence should not be considered to be a normal condition of aging. Elderly patients should be evaluated in essentially the same way that patients of any age should be evaluated. Incontinence is certainly more common as patients age, but incontinence can be seen in children, adolescents, and adults.
Why should I care about my bladder control problem?
People often live with incontinence without seeking help. Many cases can be cured or controlled with appropriate treatment. Urinary incontinence is the second leading cause of institutionalizing elderly people. The problem can contribute to decreased socialization, decreased quality of life and depression. Getting up at night to urinate also increases the risk of falling and fracturing a hip.
