JDRF Cincinnatians of the Year

Life took an unexpected turn for the Cramer family during a girls’ lacrosse game 15 years ago. “Our daughter Molly was out running down the field and then she just passed out,” remembers Laura Cramer. “Here is this super healthy 12-year-old girl collapsed on the field and then quickly in the emergency room at Children’s. Despite a lot of testing, doctors didn’t seem to know right away what was going on until they tested her blood sugar. They very quickly knew that Molly had Type 1 diabetes.”

Kuy Plastic Surgery Utilizes Cutting-Edge Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy to Improve Skin Health and Strength

Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, is just one of the many procedures offered by Kuy Plastic Surgery and Swiss Medispa. This cutting-edge procedure utilizes a patient’s own blood to improve damaged skin. The result is healthier, rejuvenated skin. A small sample of blood is drawn and from there the platelets are isolated. Platelets are very small cells in your blood that are involved in the clotting and healing process. When platelet rich plasma is injected into a damaged area of the skin, it initially causes mild inflammation. However, it then triggers a healing process, releasing enzymes to promote healing and tissue responses including attracting stem cells and growth factors to repair damaged areas. Ultimately, new collagen begins to appear. As the collagen matures, it shrinks and the damaged area is tightened and strengthened. When treating patients who have skin that has been damaged by the sun or time, the procedure results in healthier and younger looking skin. It is most often utilized to rejuvenate damaged skin around the eyes, cheeks, mid-face, neck, jawline, chest and décolletage, back of hands and arms and lips.
