The Love Shot
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is an advanced but validated approach with ever-increasing application in regenerative medicine. It harnesses the body’s own healing response to regenerate damaged or weakened tissues. PRP involves injecting plasma and concentrated platelets from the patient’s own blood into damaged tissues to stimulate growth and repair.
When an injury occurs in the body, specialized blood cells call Platelets first halt bleeding from broken blood vessels, then stimulate the wounded tissues to grow and heal. They release Platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF), transforming growth factor (TGF), platelet factor interleukin (IL), platelet-derived angiogenesis factor (PDAF), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), epidermal growth factor (EGF), insulin-like growth factor (IGF) and fibronectin to stimulate growth of the various tissue layers.
PRP technology begins with a blood draw from the patient the same day as the treatment. The red and white blood cells are then separated out, leaving platelets and the tissue supportive factors in plasma. This combination is then reintroduced into targeted tissues to provoke biologic effects that are usually recognizable within days but continue for months afterward. Our gynecologist’s mastery of female anatomy and function through decades of pelvic reconstructive surgical experience ensures precise delivery to yield maximal effects.
vRenewal - Viveve + Love Shot
Combining the potent regenerative effects of bothViveve and The Love Shot in one procedure creates a synergistic effect that maximizes the biological response to treatment. This translates into more pronounced results noticeable within days and continuing to build thereafter. This combination works so well that it is offered at a significant discount compared to the cost of the treatments performed separately.
