Regenerative Medicine Q & A

Jarvis Family Medical Services

What is stem cell therapy?

Stem cells are cells that can turn themselves into any type of specialized cell in your body. They play an important role in helping the body repair and regenerate itself. Stem cells are also self-replicating, so they can restore vital organ tissue.

With stem cell therapy, a patient’s own stem cells are removed from their body through a needle, and then those cells are injected back into the patient at a targeted spot in need of regeneration or repair. Since this involves using the patient’s own cells, there are no complications or concerns about rejecting the cells. These injections can help heal damaged tissue anywhere in the body, improving health, healing, and quality of life.

What is Plasma Rich Platelet (PRP) Therapy?

PRP therapy removes blood from the patient’s body and places 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 using tiny needles. The plasma stimulates the body to create collagen and revives and regenerates the targeted area.  Treatment 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.
  • The O Shot - a PRP injection into the anterior wall of the vagina to decrease urinary incontinence and improve sexual pleasure
  • The P Shot - a PRP injection into the penis to alleviate issues with erectile dysfunction

What are LED light treatments?

Light Emitting Diode (LED) light treatments emit therapeutic wavelengths of light to promote the healing of wounds and scars, and also to rejuvenate the skin. When certain wavelengths of light energy hit the skin, it stimulates the top layer to produce collagen (which makes your skin look plump and full) and elastin (which gives it strength).

LED light treatments on the face can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improving uneven skin tone, reducing pore size, and brightening the skin. Karla Jarvis also offers LED light treatment for acne, which helps eliminate breakouts, promotes healing of existing acne, and helps reduce scarring.
