What is Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF)?
Platelet therapy is quickly becoming an integral aspect of cosmetic treatments. Most notably, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has been used topically or as an injection to stimulate collagen production and enhance the efficacy of procedures such as fat transfer, hair loss, lasers and microneedling. Harvested PRP has platelets, fibrin and white blood cells, which contribute to wound healing, collagen production and improved elasticity. PRF is the next generation of PRP and contains very high concentrations white blood cells, fibrin and a small amount of stem cells found circulating in our bloodstreams. PRF becomes a gel after 15 to 20 minutes of being isolated and immediately upon being injected into the face or body. This allows it to be used for cosmetic volume restoration in addition to topical indications.
What does the procedure entail?
PRF is harvested from our very own blood. Prior to the treatment, one vial of blood is drawn to fill a 13 ml tube, which is a little less than a tablespoon. Next, the blood is placed inside a specialized centrifuge designed to separate PRF from other blood components. After spinning, the PRF is harvested from the top of the vial into a syringe. Once the PRF is ready, there is a delicate window of approximately 15 minutes before the PRF forms into a gel-like consistency. In my clinic, PRF has been most commonly used in concert with hyaluronic acid dermal fillers to enhance facial volume and improve the quality of the surrounding skin.
Who is a good candidate for this treatment?
The great thing about PRF is that most people are good candidates for treatment, depending on the patient’s individual concerns. For example, when patients are seeking filler treatment but have thin skin, PRF can actually thin the hyaluronic acid filler and allow for a smoother, more natural-looking injection.
What are some of the reasons patients ask for this procedure?
Many seek this treatment due to volume deficient areas of the face which include but are not limited to: under eyes, the corners of the mouth and the temples. At times, patients seem hesitant toward other products to be used as injectables, as it is not their own. The fact that PRF is comprised from the patient’s own blood is the driving factor for which patients seem interested in this specific treatment. It acts as a temporary volumizer, however the true advantage of this treatment is the rejuvenation of skin quality.
How long do the results last?
PRF is performed in a series of treatments, spaced six to eight weeks apart. Results typically last one to three weeks and the volume will essentially dissipate. Long-term effects, such as skin tightening, collagen production and enhanced skin quality, may take up to three to four months to be noticed and can last from six to 12 months. The visibility of expected benefits and results of the PRF treatment is typically seen after six weeks from initial treatment.
What do you believe are the benefits of a PRF treatment for the face versus dermal fillers?
Injectable fillers serve the single purpose of addressing volume deficiency. While PRF does give temporary volume enhancement (this effect does subside within a couple of weeks after treatment), the purpose of PRF injections is highly directed toward skin rejuvenation: skin tightening, improved skin texture and quality, and collagen stimulation. On the one hand, this does present some overlap to the benefits of PRF versus synthetic fillers, but in terms of longevity, it varies depending on the type of dermal filler used and how much of it is placed.

Restore your vitality with your own blood !
The fountain of youth resides within your own body. It flows through your veins and science has discovered new techniques to capture the healing and restorative platelet-rich plasma from your blood. PRP is being used to stimulate hair regrowth, facial rejuvenation, and sexual vitality.
It is simple, virtually painless and requires little downtime. Results are visible within 3 months and may require 3-4 treatments spaced one month apart for optimal results.
PRP is extracted by isolating plasma from blood (this is done by a process called spinning). The platelet-rich plasma is then injected into the area it is meant to treat. The amount of blood drawn depends on the size of the area to be treated. PRP is truly a magic bullet when it comes to fighting the signs of aging.
The benefits of PRP Treatment may include:
If you have bleeding or blood clotting issues you are not a candidate for this treatment.
What We Do At Ageless Elegance, we are true believers in harnessing the natural power of our own bodies. We are experts in harvesting platelet-rich plasma and then injecting it to restore and revive the face and body.
PRP can be used alone or in conjunction with other modalities to encourage the following:
The Vampire Facial® on the other hand, is a type of skin resurfacing treatment (such as
micro-channeling) which is followed by infusing the PRP into the skin. The benefit of this method of
treatment is that the tiny needles used with micro-channeling “trick” your body into thinking there is an
injury, so new collagen is produced. Though the tiny needles may make the skin look red or irritated for
a short while after treatment, it is well known to look much worse than it feels! The results are
extremely beneficial for those with fine lines or those who have acne scars or other imperfections they
would like to improve.
How are these two procedures similar
The Vampire Facelift® and The Vampire Facial® are similar in that they are both non-invasive aesthetic treatments only offered by practitioners who have undergone extensive proprietary training, certification, and follow-up
education. Clients can feel confident that the process will be as comfortable as possible and give results that
In addition, both procedures utilize PRP in a way that encourages the skin to heal itself and look its best for a
significant time after the procedure. Results will continuously improve for a few weeks after the process and
usually last for at least 12 months.
Orgasm is not only pleasurable it is healthy. If you have noticed a dip in your sexual desire, we can help restore your enjoyment of intimacy and pleasure with the “O Shot.” Following the end of childbearing years women complain of vaginal dryness, lack of sexual interest and the inability to enjoy sexual pleasure to its fullest.
The O-Shot™ involves isolation of PRP (platelet rich plasma) followed by a very specific method of amplifying or augmenting the vaginal tissues with injection of that PRP. The method of isolating the PRP is an FDA approved process.
Women usually enjoy the effects of the O-Shot™ almost immediately as the growth factors begin to rejuvenate and enhance the sexual response.
The O-Shot® (or Orgasm Shot®) is a nonsurgical procedure that uses the growth factors each woman has in her own body to stimulate vaginal and clitoral rejuvenation to activate the Female Orgasm System. Thus far, almost all women receiving the O-Shot™ procedure enjoy an increase in their sexual response, and for many the increase is dramatic. Results may vary.
Results last up to 12 months for most women and there has been no reported complications in over 45,000 users.
Prior to your procedure, Donna Kelleher-Yassen, NP will take a health history and answer any questions. A numbing cream will be applied to the area to be injected. The blood is drawn from the arm in the same way as with any blood test. Then, using a centrifuge and a special method, platelet rich plasma is isolated the resultant growth factors. The whole process takes about 10 minutes. Then, using a very thin needle, the growth factors are injected the clitoris and into the upper vagina into an area most important for the sexual response, the O-Spot. Because these areas have been numbed with the anesthetic cream, woman feel little or no pain.

The Penile-Shot for Erectile Dysfunction & Male Enhancement
Enjoy Life Again with Rapid Results and No Pre-Procedure Preparation.
P-Shot or the Priapus Shot is a revolutionary approach to keeping men sexually inspired and reinvigorated, improving performance, helping erectile dysfunction, boost sensation, combat the negative effects of aging on your sex life, and increasing penis size for men. The results after the P-Shot are dramatic.
How it Works:
The P-Shot procedure begins with a quick and easy blood draw. Then, using a proprietary technique, the growth factors are extracted from your blood and concentrated into Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). PRP is then injected into areas of the penis that are important for sexual response. These areas are numbed with a local anesthetic cream before injection. Most clients describe a feeling of pressure at the injection site with little to no pain. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) contains many growth and healing factors. PRP has regenerative abilities and thus stimulates healing. The resulting benefits include an increased growth of new blood vessels and improved circulation within the penis.
Other benefits include stronger erections, increased sensation and pleasure along with enhanced sexual performance. Some men report changes in girth and length of the penis. Many of these benefits are experienced soon after receiving the injection.
The treatment is non-allergenic and free of harmful side effects .You should see improvements immediately, although there is usually a return to prior treatment status in 3-5 days as the water is absorbed and prior to complete action of the fibroblasts to in the size of the penis. Within 2-4 weeks an increase in girth and length is common. There’s actual growth of new tissue by stimulation of unipotent stem cells, so the change in shape is not from something foreign being in the body but from the body actually rejuvenating and growing. The PRP stimulates new blood flow with new blood vessels.
It is important to know that not everyone will necessarily achieve the same results or satisfaction; however for many the result is an increase in the length, girth and sensitivity of the penis and the treatment results for those men are impressive.
Also, results are not instantaneous. It takes several weeks to achieve the full effects and there are a couple things one must do daily to increase the rate of success. All of which will be discussed during your private consultation.
