"I highly recommend the staff at this facility. I’ve had surgeries, injections and also go regularly for Solissa to do her magic on my 60 year old skin:). Just had fillers from Nicole for the first time. What a great job she did! She was able to achieve a very natural but much improved look.....better than I could have imagined. She is truly talented and I’m very pleased! You will be too. Give them a try!"- W.K. / Yelp / Mar 11, 2021

"Amazing Results! Extremely Satisfied - I consulted Dr. Yaker for lipo on the inner thighs. After meeting with him and reviewing his results, I also had a “re-do” of lipo that was done by another surgeon on the flanks, back, and upper abdomen. Dr. Yaker is an amazing surgeon with an excellent bedside manner. His skill, attention to detail, and desire to do the best possible work-the first time, is why I will be seeing Dr. Yaker again should I need any other work done! I wish I had sought his services the first time. I am beyond pleased with the outcome. I highly recommend Dr. Yaker!"- S. / RealSelf / Mar 02, 2021
Is PRP Therapy Right for Me?
Individuals who want to improve the tone and texture of their complexion, restore hair growth, or achieve additional volume in their face are typically ideal candidates for this procedure. Due to its numerous uses and natural origins, PRP therapy can be a terrific choice for almost anyone. However, it's always important to talk to our aesthetic team beforehand in regard to any skin conditions, blood disorders, anemia, or any other conditions so we can accurately determine whether it's safe for you to receive this treatment.
How is pRP Therapy Performed?
Once you are comfortably seated in one of our secluded treatment areas, a small amount of blood will be drawn from your arm and placed in a centrifuge machine. Most of the time, we remove around four tablespoons of blood. After about 15 minutes, the components of the blood separate and the PRP is ready to be injected. We will load your rich plasma into a sterile syringe and inject it into the treatment areas. The PRP procedure usually only takes about five minutes, but that can vary on a patient-to-patient basis.
In the case of skin rejuvenation procedures, microneedling will then be performed in order to administer the platelet-poor plasma (PPP) into the top layer of the skin. During this process, tiny microchannels are created, which allows the PPP to effectively penetrate the skin.
What Results Can I Expect from pRP Therapy?
Results can vary, depending on if the PRP therapy is being used for skin rejuvenation, hair restoration, or as a dermal filler replacement. Since it uses your own blood, the risk of allergic reactions or adverse reactions is virtually eliminated. You should expect the treatment area to be a bit red after the procedure, as some traces of red blood cells will be included in the injection. A cold pack can be used on the targeted site to ease any discomfort or minor swelling. Most patients return every 4 – 6 weeks for additional appointments until they've reached their peak results.
