What types of PRP injections are there?

Different types of PRP injections are designed to heal and repair injuries. Medical studies show these shots work for:

  • Tennis elbow
  • Knee osteoarthritis
  • Sports injuries, including pulled muscles and sprains
  • Wounds
  • Hair loss

Your doctor is the first authority when it comes to healing and treating injuries and wounds. PRP injections may give your body’s natural healing a boost. They also help give you more youthful skin, which is the type of PRP treatment we have here at Emerge Tulsa.

What happens with PRP injections and therapy?

PRP injections work by harvesting platelets from your body. Platelets contain a lot of proteins, and their overall function is to clot your blood, encourage healing, and repair injuries. What we do is take a small amount of your blood and then run it through a machine called a centrifuge. The centrifuge separates the blood into its component parts, including platelets and plasma.

After we separate the platelets, we inject them into the part of your skin that’s damaged or wrinkled. The injection site undergoes slight swelling, which indicates your body’s natural healing process has started. 

How PRP Injections Help Your Skin

Emerge Medical & Well Spa uses PRP injections to treat several skin maladies. This treatment works to repair wounds and damage on your skin’s surface. Healing acne scars is another way PRP injections can help you look your best. We might also recommend this therapy to decrease wrinkles and brown spots.

Emerge Medical & Well Spa Intramuscular Injections

What are intramuscular injections?

Intramuscular injections deliver beneficial substances deep into the muscles. For example, getting a vaccine uses this technique. A medical professional disinfects the injection site and uses a hypodermic needle to deliver the treatment directly into your bloodstream. 

Why do intramuscular injections work?

Our intramuscular injections work because treatments start to take effect much faster compared to digestible or oral nutrients. Your body starts to utilize vitamins, minerals, and amino acids right away. There’s no wait time for your stomach to process the nutrients. The only faster method to receive nutrients is through an IV bag.

Reasons to Get Intramuscular Injections

The overall goal of intramuscular injections at Emerge Medical & Well Spa is for nutrition, beauty, or boosting mood. We have several types of injections filled with nutrients your body needs. 

Nutrition. Our vitamin D injection may help your body absorb calcium. An injection with B-vitamins helps regulate metabolism, gives you an energy boost during a workout, or helps balance your red blood cells. Vegans need an extra boost from vitamin B-12 because this vitamin primarily comes from animal sources in nature. The body has trouble absorbing B-12, which is why an intramuscular injection can help.

Beauty. Nutrients naturally help your skin, hair, and nails look healthy and radiant. An intramuscular injection of B-vitamins could help your natural beauty shine through. Certain amino acids, along with B-12, could assist your body’s efforts to turn fat layers into energy. Antioxidants come into play here as they help rid your body of heavy metals and free radicals that can build up over time.

Mood. Nutrition affects your mood. Amino acids, minerals, and vitamins can de-stress your body, balance your mood, and make you feel better. Custom intramuscular injections speed nutrients into your bloodstream without having to wait for food or pills to kick in, plus they are concentrated and readily available for your body to use right away.

Benefits of Using Kybella to Get Rid of Your Double Chin

Woman holding her face and smilingSubmental fullness, or “double chin,” can be the result of genetics, aging, or even weight gain. If you are someone who is bothered by submental fullness and you don’t want to pay for plastic surgery, the Kybella treatment at Emerge Medical & Well Spa in Tulsa can be right for you! So, what exactly is Kybella? And what are the benefits? Read on to learn more. 

What Is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA approved injection made of a synthetic version of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring molecule found in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. When Kybella is injected directly into the unwanted fat under the chin, it destroys those fat cells and reduces fullness for a more youthful appearance. 

This being said, Kybella has a number of added benefits that make it not only a great alternative to surgery but a great stand-alone option for getting rid of unwanted submental fullness! Here are the benefits you can expect from this injection.

No Surgery

One of the more obvious benefits of Kybella is that you do not have to go under the knife or anesthesia like you would with plastic surgery! Kybella involves a series of small injections under the chin with minimal downtime for lasting results.

It’s Permanent

Unlike other cosmetic injections, the results of Kybella are meant to be permanent. This injection permanently destroys fat cells, and once they are gone they can no longer store or accumulate fat! 

It’s Fast and Easy

At Emerge Medical & Well Spa, the Kybella injection procedure involves a brief series of injections that last only about 20 minutes. The number of injections you receive depends on the results you desire, there is little to no downtime, and there are typically little to no side effects.
