"Katherine and her staff are the best. Always responsive and friendly. Katherine really listens to your concerns and treats the individual and not an "out of the box" treatment that is the same for everyone. She is always on time. Takes the time to have the conversation WITH you and doesn't talk AT you. I was referred to her by friends, and I continue to recommend her to others."- A.B. / Google / Nov 29, 2021

"I love love Dr Johnson. She is amazing and makes you feel at ease. I want to make that clear! The reason that I did not give a 5 star is because of a certain staff member. When I was trying to explain my reasoning of not being able to come do a follow up....was told on the phone prior to first visit that they did take carecredit and gave a totally different copay amount, she got defensive saying how it's only 3 people blah blah blah and they don't take it. Ok. I get that. But if you let me talk and finish instead of getting defensive and interrupting. Yes, maybe the person misunderstood?? Idk, but it happened. You can say it never did but it won't change the fact that yes it did. I even showed them the number at the time of visit, which was theirs that I called hrs prior to confirm copay price when the receptionist tried to say I called a different office. I didn't make it up. But don't get ugly cause you think no one could have made a mistake on your end. Maybe she thought I said something else. Idk. Either way, I'm not mad about it. I wasn't even getting nasty on the phone. I just was telling what happened. Nothing more. So don't try to talk over me on the phone cause you don't agree and want to basically say I'm lying. I just chose this place because I heard great things about Dr Johnson, which is all true and thinking they did take it which unfortunately for me, they dont. But even the copay amount that I was told originally, ended up being twice as much as well."- A.S. / Google / Aug 05, 2021
"I found Katherine Johnson when I posted in a FB group for Moms because I knew I needed Help but had NO idea where to start. As women age we experience so many changes and Katherine is the Nancy Drew of getting to the root cause! She’s so passionate about helping others and it shows! I’m so grateful for her and her team! And I’m all about supporting local business! Thanks for everything!"- N.H. / Google / Jul 23, 2021
How Does PRP Treatment Work?
PRP therapy works by using your body's natural healing abilities to regrow healthy cells, promoting the creation of new elastin and collagen in the skin. After you are seated comfortably in one of our private treatment rooms, a sample of your blood will be collected and placed in a centrifuge machine. Once the components of your blood are separated, the nutrient-rich plasma will be prepared and re-injected into your skin. The process generally only takes about 30 minutes or so, depending on the number of areas being treated. Because it uses your own blood, there is little to no risk of allergic or serious adverse reactions. Follow-up PRP sessions may be recommended to help maintain or lengthen your results.
Am I A Candidate For PRP Therapy?
Men and women who want to improve the tone and texture of their complexion are typically ideal candidates for PRP therapy. Since it promotes collagen production naturally, it is also a great treatment choice for refreshing tired-looking skin. Men and women looking for a sexual boost in experiencing more pleasure and or lasting longer during sex will benefit greatly from PRP treatments. And lastly, anyone looking to reverse unwanted hair loss is a great candidate for PRP therapy. Inform board-certified family nurse practitioner Katherine Johnson if you have certain skin conditions, blood disorders, or anemia to ensure that it's safe for you to receive PRP therapy.
How long do results from PRP therapy last?
PRP therapy results are dependent on several factors, including where the PRP is used. PRP treatments to the skin typically see results that last 8-12 weeks. PRP used in the genital area for O Shots and P Shots last between 12-18 months. And REsults achieved using PRP for hair restoration have perminant lasting results. Some of the advantages of this procedure are that it doesn't require surgery or a long recovery period, plus it is easier to afford.
What are the risks and complications of PRP therapy?
Possible side effects from PRP, when done alone, are minor and include only temporary swelling and bruising. If combined with microneedling, potential risks include skin infection, delayed healing, and pigmentation changes. This is why it’s important to have microneedling done by an licensed and experienced technician.
Will PRP help replenish volume?
PRP therapy does not add volume. While PRP treatments offer great results because it rejuvenates the appearance of the skin and helps promote the production of elastin and collagen, PRP treatments will not boost volume. If you want to contour areas on your face that have lost volume, then dermal fillers may be a better treatment choice for you.
Is PRP therapy painful?
PRP injections feel similar to a BOTOX® or dermal filler injection but with the additional step of the plasma extraction. Typically, patients will feel a mild pinch or pressure at the time of injection. If you are concerned about being uncomfortable, ask about including local anesthesia during your consultation.
