For a more youthful appearance
Microneedling with power of your own plasma and exosomes for an overall more youthful, radiant complexion.
This minimally invasive, non-surgical skin rejuvenation procedure helps with…
Exosomes are cell communicators that unlock your cells for more growth factors and peptides, greater stimulation and regeneration of collagen and elastin.
The rapid release of growth factors in exosomes promotes the body’s natural healing process and leads to an improvement in both the appearance and texture of your skin.
Microneedling devices are small handheld instruments with many small needles that create tiny puncture holes in the skin by moving over the skin repeatedly. The tissue damage created by the device activates the body’s natural wound healing process.
The PRP provides large amounts of growth factors and different proteins which participate in tissue repair and wound healing. We elevate this procedure by adding exosomes.
The ideal candidate is anyone who wants to improve the appearance of their skin and achieve a more glowing even skin texture and tone.
Microneedling with exosomes is not recommended for anyone who has used Accutane in the past six months, anyone with a facial wound or skin infection, or women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
One of Dr. Shippy’s trained nurses will bring you to one of our private rooms and get you comfortable in a zero gravity chair.
We offer an optional numbing cream that is applied to the face 30 minutes prior to the procedure. While you are waiting for the numbing cream to work, one of the nurses will draw a small amount of blood from your arm. Once the blood is drawn, it is put in a centrifuge machine to extract the beneficial plasma.
Our trained nurses will then roll the microneedling device over the skin. Once the entire face is completed, the nurses will mix your blood with exosomes and rub the combined mixture over the face. Unlike the “vampire” facial, exosomes are clear.
The entire appointment can last from 45-60 minutes. You will be able to resume your normal schedule immediately following the appointment.
Most patients recover within 2-5 days following treatment. The most common side effects are redness and tightness. We recommend that you avoid strenuous activity for at least 24 hours and that you limit sun exposure.
Possible side effects include reddening that may last up to 3 days.
Within a few days you will notice that your skin appears tighter, smoother and brighter. Your skin will continue to improve for up to eight weeks. To achieve the best results, a series of treatments is recommended, 4-6 weeks apart.
While you are getting your facial done, consider giving your immune system a boost with one of our IV treatments.
IV therapy delivers vital nutrients directly into the bloodstream. Bypassing the digestive system allows for 100% absorption, maximum effectiveness and minimal waste.
It is always best to come well hydrated. You may eat and drink prior to your infusion.
You may have some bruising at the injection site, or feel a “cold” sensation with any of the infusions, however this is normal.
After PC therapy some have experienced loose stools.
During NAD treatment you may feel nauseous, have a headache or feel flushed, however that can subside as we slow down the delivery of the infusion, and will dissipate when your treatment is over.
Please call our office if you are on blood thinners and you are interested in doing the PC IV, or if you’ve recently had chemotherapy treatment.
One of Dr. Shippy’s trained registered nurses will administer your IV and monitor you to ensure you are comfortable throughout the process.
Our nurses are skilled in working with difficult veins. We provide electrolytes and minerals that have a positive effect.
PC IV therapy can take 30 minutes – 1.5 hours. Vitamin shots are quick 15 minute appointments.
NAD IV Therapy can take anywhere from 2-5 hours, depending on how your body responds.
Feel free to bring your laptop or a book while receiving your IV therapy. Dr. Shippy provides an assortment of healthy snacks.
Dr. Shippy has transformed offices in her medical clinic into IV rooms, equipped with comfortable zero-gravity reclining and massaging chairs. Feel free to rest or work during your treatment.
