"I absolutely LOVE Nordstar and not once have I had a bad experience. I have been going to Dr. Laura for over ten years and still continue to see her even though I moved to Nashville. I’ve tried other places closer to me, but no one compares (in my opinion!). With her extensive medical background and training, she is the only one I trust to inject Botox or filler. She has a conservative approach, which I greatly appreciate! I can tell she loves what she does and is enthusiastic about continuing to learn about new products/procedures. Kimberly is also equally enthusiastic and loves to teach clients about aesthetics. The entire staff is always super helpful and friendly!"- T.S. / Google / Feb 10, 2022

"I have received multiple services at Nordstar from both Dr Dipuma and Kimberly including facial peels, a facial, and laser hair removal. I’ve always been impressed by the staff there, the high quality products and services, and comfortable environment. I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my skin! They always look out for me and are always 100% honest with me, which means a lot. I love the makeup and skin care products that they offer through Obagi and Jane Iredale. They’re top of the line! I always struggled with acne and since switching to these products, I’ve never issues. My skin is so much clearer! I highly recommend Nordstar Medical to all of my family and friends. If you’re looking for a trustworthy, professional, and highly skilled facility look no further than Nordstar."- E.N. / Google / May 13, 2021
Should I Receive PRP Therapy?
Women and men who would like to improve their skin texture and tone are usually the best candidates for PRP therapy. Since it stimulates collagen production naturally, it is also a great treatment choice for refreshing dull-colored skin. Speak with Dr. Dipuma about any skin conditions, blood disorders, or anemia to determine whether it is safe for you to undergo PRP therapy.
PRP Therapy Technique
Once you are comfortably seated in one of our private treatment areas, a small amount of blood will be taken from one of your arms and placed in a centrifuge machine. Usually, we remove around four tablespoons or one vial of blood. After approximately 15 minutes in the centrifuge machine, the different components of the blood will be separated and ready for injection. We will place your platelet-rich plasma into a sterile syringe and inject it into the designated areas of the face. This process usually only takes approximately five minutes, but this will vary in each patient.
PRP Therapy Recovery
Plasma from PRP therapy promotes the production of elastin and collagen naturally to reveal tauter, more youthful-looking skin. Since it utilizes your own blood, there is no risk of allergic or adverse reactions. You should expect your face to be a little red following treatment as traces of red blood cells are included in the plasma injection. A cold pack can be applied to the injection area to ease any discomfort or minor swelling. We recommend you undergo treatments in 4 – 6-week intervals to maintain results.
Receive Glowing Skin
After having PRP treatments, your skin will be healthier and brighter than before, producing a glowing, beautiful appearance. This treatment is ideal for women and men who appreciate a natural method of skin rejuvenation that yields stunning results.
