Can a simple, quick blood draw from your arm make your face look younger? The answer is yes - when you extract the platelet-rich plasma (PRP). "PRP is a naturally-occurring substance in your body and blood," explains Dr. Courtenay Poucher, owner of Aesthetic Center of Santa Clarita. "Using a centrifuge, I extract the PRP from your own blood, then strategically inject it back into your body. PRP is human blood that is spun down and separated, producing a concentration of platelets above normal values. Platelets are naturally extremely rich in connective tissue growth and healing factors. The body's first response to tissue injury is to deliver platelets to the area; platelets initiate repair and attract stem cells. The tissue itself becomes younger, which means it looks and feels younger, too." Try PRP in one of these four results-oriented ways for a treatment that will remarkably change the way you look and feel.

Va-shot makes Date Night Extra-exciting
"It's troubling," says Dr. Poucher. "Women are so quick to blame themselves for reduced interest or responsiveness during intimacy. A client recently said to me, 'I wish it felt like it did when I was younger! I know I'd want it more! But I'm so busy with the kids, stressed with work, I've put on too much weight...' Ladies! Aging, pregnancy and childbirth directly and remarkably change your body. You get older 'down there,' too! It's not you, it's your body, and just like we can revitalize your face, we can restore your most intimate parts, too." After numbing the area, PRP is directly injected into the vaginal wall near the "g-spot" and/or the clitoris. "The area becomes naturally youthfully plumped and toned, improving access, attractiveness, sensitivity and stimulation. Let's just say that this is quickly becoming the most popular treatment in the office!" says Dr. Poucher.

Use Stem Cells for Stronger Strands
PRP has been used for years as a hair-loss treatment to the stars - and now it's your turn to enjoy thicker, longer, healthier hair. The essential proteins found in PRP stimulate natural hair growth, with patients seeing new "baby" hairs in as little as a month, with more-dramatic results appearing at about the three-month mark. This treatment is ideal for both male and female pattern baldness, as well as for addressing the simple (And annoying.) thinning of the hair that comes with age, stress, illness, certain medicines and genetics. "Follicles that have been damaged or restricted are revitalized with this treatment, producing hair sometimes for the first time in years!" says Dr. Poucher.

PRP Pumps Up your Cleavage
You'll lift sagging breast tissue, improve the look of implants that have rippled, eradicate stretch marks, improve the shape and appearance of your cleavage, improve nipple and breast sensitivity and fix inverted nipples with a PRP Breast Lift. No, it probably won't double your cup size overnight (Some women report an increase in size by about a cup.), but it will round and shape your bust. You'll realize full results in about two months, but a difference is noticeable after just a few days.

The PRP Facial is Youth in a Syringe, Naturally
"The PRP Facial is a gamechanger," says Dr. Poucher. "We have clients who can't believe the renewed radiance of their skin. You can get fillers, you can even get a surgical face lift, but that's not going to change the tone and texture of the skin the way that PRP facials can. That suppleness and glow of young skin can only come from the inside out, which is why PRP works so, so well. We are literally changing skin at the cellular level, which no cream, surgery or topical treatment can adequately accomplish. The PRP is pushed under the skin with a DEP device that forces the serum to seep into and through the pores, so there are no needle marks on the face." The stimulation of new collagen production through the introduction of stem cells right where they're needed the most improves the color, tone and texture of the skin, smoothing fine lines while providing a more-youthful plumpness, look and feel to your face.
