PLATELET RICH PLASMA, PRP
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is an injection treatment that uses the components of a person’s own blood to stimulate hair growth.
Your plasma contains stem cells, growth hormones and platelets, which are very small cells in your blood that are involved in the clotting process. When PRP is injected into the damaged area it causes a mild inflammation that triggers the healing cascade. As the platelets organize in the tissue they release a number of enzymes to promote healing and restoration of tissue. They have also been shown anecdotally to promote hair growth.

Body contouring is a medical — surgical or non-surgical — procedure that can help reduce excess fat and skin in specific areas of the body. It can dramatically improve your appearance and make you feel more confident about your body. There are several different types of body contouring procedures, each of which targets a different area of the body.
WHAT IS BODY CONTOURING?
Body contouring, or ultrasonic cavitation, is a non-surgical procedure that uses low-frequency sound waves to break up fat cells. This process heats and vibrates the layer of fat cells below the skin causing the fat cells to break down into liquid and its content released into the bloodstream. Body contouring can be performed to firm nearly any part of the body including the face, arms, legs, thighs, buttocks, waist, back, and abdominal muscles.
The results can be seen immediately after the first treatment, with optimal results around six to 12 sessions.
Radiofrequency (RF) skin tightening, another form of body contouring, has also emerged as a popular non-invasive treatment option for reducing the presence and improving the appearance of fine lines and loose skin. It relies on using radiofrequency energy to heat the skin to a precise temperature for a specific amount of time in order to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, thereby tightening the skin. Radiofrequency can be performed as a standalone treatment for skin tightening or combined with ultrasonic cavitation for complete body contouring.
