PRP therapy is an exciting new advancement in the treatment for hair loss. PRP stimulates new hair growth by re-activating dormant follicles and heals at the cellular level, which results in thicker and healthier hair.
Platelet rich plasma treatment (PRP) therapy is a non-invasive form of addressing male hair loss and thinning with blood cell platelets to stimulate hair growth. PRP for men involves drawing a small amount of the patient’s blood, placing the blood in a tube and centrifuging the blood until plasma platelets collect in the tube. Useful for healing and regenerating tissue, this platelet-rich plasma is then injected into the scalp where hair thinning and loss is noticeable.
Platelets contain growth factors that have been known to stimulate hair growth. It has been clinically proven to benefit a significant proportion of men with hair loss and thinning. In fact, a study showed an increasing the number of hair follicles within 14 days of beginning treatment. Another study reports that “PRP injections are cost-effective, feasible treatment options for male pattern balding and provides high patient satisfaction”.

Botox is used medically to treat certain muscular conditions, and cosmetically to remove wrinkles by temporarily relaxing muscles. It is made from a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin. Botox, when used correctly, it has a number of applications.
Fast facts on Botox:
- Botox is the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment, with more than 6 million Botox treatments administered each year.
- Botox is a neurotoxin derived from Clostridium botulinum, an organism found in the natural environment where it is largely inactive and non-toxic.
- Botulinum toxin is used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles by relaxing the underlying muscles.
- People also use Botox to treat excessive sweating, migraines, muscular disorders, and some bladder and bowel disorders.
What is Botox?
- Botox injection treatment for headaches.
- Botox injections have a range of medical uses.
- Clostridium botulinum, the bacterium from which Botox is derived, is found in many natural settings, including soil, lakes, and forests.
What are the Benefits of Botox?
What began as a treatment option for muscle spasms soon morphed into a cosmetic procedure that offered a multitude of health benefits.
Indeed, the benefits of Botox continue to expand beyond its ability to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, 4,597,886 people sought out this nonsurgical procedure in 2016.
While many pursue it for cosmetic purposes, the benefits of Botox span far beyond. It wouldn’t surprise us if that number continues to grow.
If you’re plagued with constant headaches or migraines, Botox may be able to bring some of the joy back to your life. And the list goes on.
Botox targets excessive sweating, muscle stiffness and twitching, incontinence, and more. Let’s take a closer look, shall we?
Of course, we have to start with the first, most obvious, benefit of Botox. It’s FDA-approved and sought by many for the reduction of wrinkles, particularly on our faces.
Brows, sensitive areas around the eye, and smile lines can all be addressed with Botox. When administered correctly, Botox can keep the surrounding muscles nice and perky, reducing those fine lines and wrinkles.
Speaking of the actual appointment, let’s get down to numbers. Botox injections can cost anywhere from $170 to $350. This makes it one of the more affordable cosmetic procedures out there on the market today.
Imagine using your lunch break to find some relief for your unwanted wrinkles, muscle spasms or headaches? Administering Botox is relatively quick and easy.
Also in terms of speed, the results tend to appear pretty quickly. Some patients report relief within a day or two. Others say it can take up to a week. Like many procedures, individual results will vary.
We waited until the end to get to the inevitable fine print. Fear not! As of now, very few jaw-dropping side-effects have been reported.
You should probably prepare for a little bit of pain around the injection area. You may also experience numbness or a slight headache immediately after.
Along the temporary lines, you may experience a little bit of weakness from the nearby muscles.
It is recommend that you have a nice sit down with your trusted physician before receiving Botox.
There is a Botox aftercare guide that should help quell some of your concerns, too. You’ll see that many people have gone through the procedure with minimal discomfort and tremendous success.
One of the prime benefits of Botox continues to be its ability to temporarily remove unwanted wrinkles.

Age spots, sometimes called sun spots, are small patches of pigment, similar to but slightly larger than freckles, where the skin appears darker than the surrounding area. Age spots often appear in areas where the body has been exposed to sun, such as the face, hands, shoulders, chest, feet and ankles.
The pigmented areas are called “age spots” because they are more commonly seen on older people. However, you can get age spots at any age, especially if you spend a lot of time in the sun. While generally not harmful to your health, age spots can be cosmetically unappealing, giving you an uneven skin tone, and making you look and feel older.
How to Remove Age Spots
There are a number of treatments available that promise to eliminate age spots, including creams, bleaches, lasers and abrasive peels. However, those methods are often expensive, slow, and sometimes ineffective in removing age spots.
Fortunately, we live in the Age of Technology, where quick, easy and affordable solutions abound, including a solution for quickly and painlessly eliminating age spots.
Cryotherapy to Zap Age Spots
Cold therapy has been used for centuries to treat injuries and afflictions affecting the body’s soft tissues. More recently, the benefits of cryotherapy have been proven effective to treat a plethora of health issues.
One area of your body that is particularly responsive to cold therapy is your skin.
When it comes to age spots, exposure to sub-freezing temperatures can completely eliminate them by causing the pigmented tissue to peel away from the skin’s surface.
The procedure takes mere seconds to perform, with no recovery time. The procedure is painless, and potential side effects are limited to short-term redness and swelling.

Despite best efforts to mind SPF, any time spent under the sun can take a toll on skin. After months of UV exposure, discolorations in the form of freckles, dark spots, or scars may suddenly be visible, leaving one to wonder how to get rid of dark spots. Once spotted, the earlier you seek treatment, the better. In general, even tiny dark spots will keep growing bigger—meaning the sooner you tackle the problem, the less intervention will be required.
Start by seeking a professional opinion. Brown spots are complicated. The key to successfully treating discoloration is to know what you’re dealing with.
Once you’ve established that an offending freckle doesn’t present a health risk, it’s time to form a plan of attack. Chemical peels are a tried-and-true strategy for gettting rid of dark spots.
Chemical peels improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin by using a chemical solution to remove the outer layer of old skin. The new skin that replaces it is usually smoother and less wrinkled in appearance.
Go for a Power Peel
For up to medium-depth sun spot removal, chemical peels superficially injure the skin to provoke a wound-healing response that expels dark pigment. For newish sun spots on very pale complexions we can eliminate the whole problem in a single treatment. Most clients, however, can expect to schedule an initial series of three to four appointments, and, for maintenance, one to two follow-ups each year.
At home, milder daily peels can supplement doctor-administered treatments. At-home, staying consistent in your regimen is key. It’s like exercising at the gym. You can’t use them once a year and expect results.
Why choose chemical peels for sun-damaged skin
Chemical peel procedures work well on the face, neck and hands. Fair-skinned and light-haired patients are better candidates for the procedure.
What you should know about chemical peels for sun-damaged skin
Chemical peels are performed in a doctor's office or med spa. Your dermatologist will first clean your skin thoroughly and then apply one or more chemical solutions to the treatment area. The application creates a controlled wound, letting new skin take its place. During the procedure, patients may experience a burning sensation lasting five to 10 minutes. Cold compresses may be applied to lessen the sensation.
