PRP in Peoria, Illinois

Although PRP injections were initially used to rehabilitate injured athletes, they are now very popular in aesthetic medicine. Platelet-rich plasma is one of the most natural, long-lasting, and effective solutions for people who would like to restore their youthful complexion or address certain medical issues. At The Beauty Lounge in Peoria, IL, we offer several highly sought-after PRP treatments.

What Are PRP Treatments?

Platelet-rich plasma injections use the body’s natural healing mechanisms to promote tissue repair and regeneration. This innovative treatment involves extracting a small amount of the patient’s blood, which is then processed to concentrate the platelets. Platelets contain growth factors and bioactive proteins used for tissue repair. Once concentrated, the PRP is injected into the targeted area, such as the scalp or under the eyes. The growth factors stimulate cell proliferation, collagen production, and tissue regeneration. This rejuvenates and heals the tissues in the treatment area. PRP is a great treatment for those who would like to regain or enhance their sexual function, tackle hair thinning or hair loss, or rejuvenate the delicate area under the eyes.

The P Shot

The P Shot is a treatment for men who would like to enhance their sexual function or increase the size of their penis. It utilizes platelet-rich plasma, which is injected directly into the penis. The targeted tissues include all areas responsible for erectile function. With age, these tissues may deteriorate, leading to conditions like erectile dysfunction. The P Shot capitalizes on PRP’s growth factors and promotes tissue regeneration, increased blood flow, and improved vascularization. This approach is particularly beneficial for those experiencing ED due to aging, diabetes, or other underlying medical conditions. The P Shot offers a natural, non-surgical solution that addresses the root cause of tissue degeneration.

The O Shot 

Many women encounter sexual health challenges, often tied to factors like aging, hormonal changes, or childbirth. These issues include low libido, difficulty achieving orgasm, or urinary incontinence. The O Shot is a great solution to address these concerns. It involves injecting platelet-rich plasma into specific areas of the vagina and clitoris. By targeting the tissues responsible for sexual response, such as the clitoral hood and vaginal walls, the O Shot enhances sensitivity, blood flow, and overall sexual function. PRP’s growth factors stimulate tissue regeneration, improve collagen production, and rejuvenate the targeted areas. This non-invasive approach offers women a natural and personalized option to alleviate sexual health issues.

Before and After

PRP Hair Restoration Injections 

PRP is a versatile solution for various types of hair loss. Common causes of hair thinning or baldness include genetics, hormonal changes, and aging. PRP therapy involves injecting the patient’s own PRP directly into the scalp. The growth factors in PRP stimulate hair follicles and promote hair growth and thickness. Unlike invasive treatments like hair transplants, PRP is non-surgical and minimally invasive. It is suitable for people who have recently started to experience hair loss, so patients no longer have to wait until they are completely bald to get treatment. PRP hair restoration fosters natural regeneration by addressing the root cause of hair loss, making it an appealing option for those seeking to counteract hair thinning and pattern baldness.

PRP for Under Eyes (Biofiller) 

PRP for under eyes, often referred to as biofiller, is a cosmetic treatment designed to address common issues like dark circles, fine lines, and hollow areas beneath the eyes. The PRP is gently injected into the delicate areas around the eyes, where the growth factors stimulate collagen production and tissue regeneration. This improves skin elasticity and texture. As a result, under-eye hollows are filled and dark circles are diminished, creating a rejuvenated and refreshed appearance. Unlike some other cosmetic treatments, PRP for under eyes is a natural approach as it utilizes the body’s own resources. It is also a long-lasting option suitable for those who can’t come to the clinic every two to three months.

Several studies have shown that PRP is highly effective in promoting tissue repair and can address both cosmetic and medical issues. The results are remarkably long-lasting, and the patient doesn’t have to worry about severe side effects since the treatment is completely natural.

A Natural Treatment 

PRP is an autologous treatment, which means that the patient’s own cells are used to stimulate healing. This minimizes the risk of long-term side effects, allergies, or rejection reactions commonly associated with synthetic substances. PRP is inherently biocompatible, so patients don’t have to worry about systemic complications. Furthermore, the treatment is minimally invasive, and the processing method is straightforward. This eliminates the need for a lengthy appointment or even an overnight stay. Patients can come to the clinic, complete treatment in 60–120 minutes, and resume their regular activities almost straight away.

Long-Lasting Results 

The longevity of PRP results varies depending on the treatment purpose and the patient’s health, but most people experience benefits for many months or even over a year. This is because PRP stimulates tissue regeneration and collagen production. To enhance and prolong PRP benefits, maintain a healthy lifestyle. Hydrate well, eat a balanced diet rich in nutrients, and exercise regularly to support your body’s natural healing processes. Avoid excessive sun exposure and adopt a good skincare routine, as these actions preserve the quality of the treated tissues. Additionally, refrain from smoking and manage your stress levels. During regular follow-up sessions, our team will assess the ongoing results and determine if additional PRP treatments or complementary measures are needed.

Easy to Combine 

Combining PRP with other treatments like facials, dermal fillers, and BOTOX is easy and enhances the aesthetic outcomes. Because PRP doesn’t involve surgery or the use of dangerous substances, patients can often come back to the clinic within two to three weeks to benefit from our other treatments.

The Injections 

Before PRP injections, patients undergo a consultation with Melissa to discuss their medical history and expectations. On the day of the treatment, patients are advised to stay well-hydrated. The process begins with a small blood draw, similar to a routine blood test. The extracted blood is then processed using a centrifuge. Before injection, the targeted area is cleansed, and a topical anesthetic may be applied to minimize discomfort.  After the session, patients are usually advised to avoid strenuous activities for a day and refrain from taking anti-inflammatory medications for a short period. We sometimes recommend a specific skincare routine to augment the results of the treatment. Follow-up appointments are recommended several weeks or months after the initial session. 

Rejuvenate Your Tissues the Natural Way 

PRP is one of the best treatments for people who suffer from sexual health issues, the visible effects of aging, and hair loss. Because it’s such a gentle approach, almost everyone is eligible: even those who have pre-existing conditions. The best way to find out more about PRP treatments is to speak to Melissa and our excellent team.
