Platelet Therapy (PRP) Q & A

What is platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy?

PRP therapy is a form of regenerative medicine that accelerates your body’s natural healing process. Platelet-rich plasma is a blood product that contains a high concentration of platelets.

You may know that the platelets in your blood are what help stop cuts from bleeding, but platelets also contain growth factors and specialized proteins that are needed to heal injuries. 

By concentrating the healing properties, PRP therapy stimulates and accelerates your body’s healing process. 

At Southeastern Institute for Restorative Medicine, Dr. Thompson creates the PRP used for your platelet therapy from a sample of your blood. 

What are PRP therapy treatments?

Dr. Thompson uses PRP therapy for many aesthetic and health purposes and has received specialized training to be able to offer the Vampire® series of treatments. The PRP therapies Southeastern Institute for Restorative Medicine offers include:

Vampire Facial® and Vampire Facelift® 

The Vampire Facial and Vampire Facelift are two aesthetic treatments that utilize PRP to restore and enhance your natural beauty. 

The Vampire Facial combines PRP with microneedling, which is a cosmetic treatment that creates tiny microtears in the surface of your skin that trick your skin into thinking it has an injury. 

Your skin responds to the “injury” by sending over healing cells that increase the production of collagen, which is the protein in your skin that provides support and elasticity. 

Then, PRP is applied to your skin to further enhance the effects of your microneedling for a dramatic improvement in the look and health of your skin.

The Vampire Facelift combines PRP with dermal fillers to enhance your natural beauty and restore your youthful look. 

During treatment, Dr. Thompson injects PRP and dermal fillers into precise areas of your skin to add volume and smooth out lines and wrinkles. Like the facial, the PRP accelerates production of collagen, which increases the longevity of your treatment. 

O-Shot® and P-Shot®

The O-Shot and P-Shot are PRP therapy treatments aimed at improving sexual health. The O-Shot is for women and increases vaginal stimulation, lubrication, and overall sexual wellness. The P-Shot is for men and improves erections, sensitivity, and orgasms.

Dr. Thompson also offers Votiva, which is an aesthetic tool that uses radiofrequency energy to revitalize vaginal tissue.

Vampire Breast Lift®      

During the Vampire Breast Lift, Dr. Thompson injects PRP into your breast tissue to improve the strength of your skin and add volume to the fatty tissue in your breasts.

Vampire Wing Lift®   

The Vampire Wing Lift combines PRP with dermal fillers to rejuvenate and lift your labia.

Dr. Thompson also uses PRP therapy at Southeastern Institute for Restorative Medicine for pain management and hair restoration.

Am I a good candidate for platelet therapy?

Dr. Thompson is an anti-aging and aesthetics expert and can determine if you’re a good candidate for PRP therapy during a consultation. Because PRP therapy uses your blood, risks are minimal.
