Medical Spa Q&A

Jarvis Family Medical Services

What are cosmetic injections and fillers?

Cosmetic injections such as BotoxⓇ and DysportⓇ help temporarily reduce muscle activity that causes lines to form. They are generally used on the forehead, between the eyebrows, where lines from muscle use tend to form. Cosmetic fillers temporarily fill in lines and wrinkles in areas that lose fullness over time, such “marionette lines” around the mouth, or to provide a fuller appearance to the lips. Cosmetic injections and fillers relieve signs of aging and stress on your face.  

Karla Jarvis offers Botox, Dysport, and Restylane (including Restylane Silk, Restalayne Lyft, and Restylane Refyne/Defyne) injections at the Jarvis Family Medical Services Spa. She also offers Botox injections to treat hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) under the arms.

What is a TCA chemical peel?

Trichloroacetic Acid (TCA) is a non-toxic chemical that dries out the top layers of skin so it peels off over a period of several days, revealing the healthier, new skin below. This type of treatment reduces discoloration or pigment issues on the face, improves melasma (grey or brown patches on the face), and reduces fine facial lines. It also improves skin texture due to sun damage, giving your skin more of a glow.

What is microneedling?

Microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) is a treatment used to rejuvenate the skin using tiny needles to puncture holes in the topmost layer of skin. This procedure causes your body to create new collagen and elastin. Increased collagen and elastin production give the skin a plumper, fuller appearance. Microneedling helps treat a variety of common skin care concerns, including scarring, stretch marks, melasma, and more.

What are Vampire Procedures?

Vampire procedures refer to PRP therapy, which involves removing blood from the patient’s body and placing it in a special centrifuge, separating out the plasma (which contains growth factor and stem cells), the body’s building blocks. Karla Jarvis then injects the plasma directly into the treatment area with tiny needles. The plasma stimulates the body to create collagen and revives and regenerates the targeted area. Karla Jarvis is a certified Vampire procedure specialist and is an expert at making patients look more naturally youthful using Vampire treatments. Options include:

  • PRP Facial - uses prp and microneedling to improve the appearance of the skin
  • PRP Facelift - PRP and other dermal fillers injected into wrinkles to smooth out skin
  • PRP Under Eyes - PRP injections remove dark spots and bags under the eyes
  • PRP Butt Lift - PRP and 2 dermal fillers enhance the shape, texture and look of the buttock to a natural and more youthful appearance
  • PRP Breast Lift - Non-surgical breast lift to enhance the shape and look of cleavage using PRP and two dermal fillers to produce the natural looking results.
  • PRP Hair Restoration - PRP injections in the scalp, good for men or women experiencing hair loss or thinning from Alopecia, cosmetic procedure damage, and genetics.

What is the O ShotⓇ and the P ShotⓇ?

The O Shot (or Orgasm Shot) is PRP injection treatment (see above) using platelets removed from the patient’s own blood that are injected into the anterior wall of the vagina. This treatment helps women who experience discomfort during intercourse, vaginal dryness, lichen sclerosus, or urinary incontinence. The O Shot can rejuvenate and revitalize vaginal and clitoral function, improving sensitivity and orgasm intensity.

The P Shot (Priapus Shot) is a safe, painless PRP injection into the penis to alleviate issues with erectile dysfunction. The P Shot rejuvenates the penis by stimulating new tissue growth, resulting in improved erections that are larger, firmer, and more frequent.

Both the O Shot and the P Shot can help couples enjoy more fulfilling sex lives. Karla Jarvis takes pride in offering these treatments, which can help rebuild relationships and provide confidence.

What is HydraFacial MD?

A HydraFacial is a procedure that combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration and antioxidant protection, resulting in clearer, more beautiful skin with no discomfort or downtime. This multi-step treatment combines the benefits of hydradermabrasion, a chemical peel, acne extraction treatment, and a combination of skin serums, including antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, and peptides.

A HydraFacial can be done on the face, neck, back of hands, abdomen, thighs, back, or decollete. It can target specific skin and body issues including:

  • Anti-aging
