Emsella Pelvic Floor Strengthening

The EMSELLA is a new treatment that uses magnetic energy to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles, all while you’re fully clothed.  This energy, commonly referred to as HIFEM (High Intensity Focused Electromagnetic), stimulates contractions of the muscles around the pelvic floor; like doing Kegels without any effort.  One 28 minute session will cause 11,200 contractions, the equivalent of performing 11,200 Kegel exercises.  HIFEM has been around for a few decades and has also been used to cause muscle contractions in other body areas.

Stratacell for Radiated Skin

At the recent American Society For Laser Medicine & Surgery meeting a hot topic was trying to decrease sensitivity in the skin from radiation treatments. In addition to Photobiomodulation ( LED specific treatment), a new topical called Strataderm can be used.

Strataderm is semi-occlusive film forming wound dressing that allows the skin to breathe and remain hydrated. Strataderm forms a durable, flexible and waterproof sheet. It does not penetrate into the epidermis or dermis. Strataderm restores the barrier function of the stratum corneum and reduces Trans-Epidermal Water Loss. The protected environment helps to normalize the level of collagen production while patients are healing from their radiation treatments.

It’s good to apply after and in between treatments. As always- check with your radiation oncologist.

All Natural Hair Loss Treatment

We are pleased to offer PRP Injections for Hair Loss.  PRP is a perfect, all natural procedure for anyone looking for thicker, healthier hair.

PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma.  Platelets are the cells that help you stop bleeding when you scrape or cut yourself, but they are also rich in many growth factors, including: platelet-derived growth factor, transforming growth factor, and vascular endothelial growth factor.

Since platelets release many important factors, they have been used to treat joint problems, and now hair loss as well.  PRP has been shown to benefit patients with a variety of hair loss sub-types, including androgenic alopecia (also known as “male” or “female” pattern hair loss).

The best part about PRP is that it is all-natural, as it comes from your own blood.

PRP promotes hair growth via 2 pathways:

  1. encouraging new blood vessels (angiogenesis)
  2. encouraging hair follicles to enter and extend the duration of the anagen phase (the growth phase)

Studies show that PRP injections may even be as effective, if not more effective, than Rogaine (minoxidil 5%) at stimulating hair regrowth, in certain types of hair loss (El Taieb et al, 2016).

After we draw blood into a tube, it is spun in a centrifuge machine, and the platelets can be removed.

after drawing your blood, the sample is spun in a centrifuge machine, causing the platelets to collect at the top (yellow) and rest of blood to sink to the bottom (red)

In our office we follow a protocol that consists of 4 monthly visits, and then maintenance.

Because it is all natural, there are no concerns about side effects with PRP.  Just make sure to stop any vitamins, fish oil, or pain relievers 1 week before, as they can cause bruising.
