Boat Club Medical Spa offers access to the latest breakthroughs in medicine, including platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments. With these treatments that harness the body’s natural healing power, Jerry Davis, DO, and Kasey Murphy, PA-C, can restore youthfulness to the skin, improve sexual wellness, and help grow healthy, thick hair. Call their Fort Worth, Texas, office or schedule your appointment online to get started with your own PRP treatment.
Platelet-rich plasma is a solution that Dr. Davis and Kasey use to jumpstart revitalization and regeneration in your body. This solution consists of platelets from your own blood. Your body sends these platelets to injury sites whenever you get hurt. They’re your body’s recovery tool because they’re rich in growth factors, which your body uses to create new, healthy tissue.
To deliver PRP treatment, Kasey or Dr. Davis first takes a small sample of your blood. They then use a centrifuge to separate out the platelets. By injecting this platelet-rich plasma into targeted sites on your body, they can support healing and rejuvenation in that area.
Each of the PRP treatments offered at Boat Club Medical Spa may deliver your desired results in one treatment. Or, for greater transformation, Kasey and Dr. Davis can develop a schedule of successive treatments designed to help you reach your specific goals.
How are PRP treatments used to improve skin?
PRP facials have been taking the aesthetics world by storm. You may have heard of them referred to as vampire facials.
Injecting platelet-rich plasma at specific areas on your face improves blood flow to the area and supports the production of new collagen, the protein your skin relies on to stay smooth, plump, and elastic. As a result, PRP treatments are effective for:
- Minimizing fine lines and wrinkles
- Restoring facial volume
- Improving skin tone and texture
- Decreasing scar visibility
How are PRP treatments used to support sexual health?
Boat Club Medical Spa offers the O-Shot® for women and the P-Shot® for men. Injecting PRP into targeted areas of the penis or vagina (with the help of a topical numbing agent to ensure the procedure is pain-free) can increase libido and overall sexual wellness.
PRP treatments help women enjoy more tightness and lubrication. They’re ideal for men dealing with erectile dysfunction.
How are PRP treatments used to restore hair growth?
PRP can help you grow a head of thick, healthy hair — naturally. Injecting this healing and growth-inducing serum into your scalp increases blood flow to the area and triggers healing in hair follicles that have stopped producing hair.
Your body’s own healing power could be all you need to achieve your aesthetic or sexual wellness goals. Call Boat Club Medical Spa or book your appointment online to learn more about what PRP treatments can do for you.
If you’ve ever considered a facelift but ultimately decided it was too invasive or expensive, Boat Club Medical Spa has good news. From the comfort and convenience of their Fort Worth, Texas, office, Jerry Davis, DO, and Kasey Murphy, PA-C, offer nonsurgical PDO thread treatments and Silhouette InstaLift™ to lift your skin and deliver dramatic anti-aging results. To learn more about PDO thread lifts, call their office or schedule your appointment online.
If you’ve noticed your features looking increasingly saggy or droopy as you age, this treatment could be for you. It relies on safe, dissolvable threads made of polydioxanone (PDO) or polyglycolide/L-lactide to lift and tighten the skin virtually anywhere your face needs a pick-me-up.
Thread treatments are safe and effective. They’re made of the same materials doctors have long used for surgical sutures and they dissolve in your skin over time. When Kasey or Dr. Davis thread one of these threads through your skin, it immediately lifts the area and continues to deliver skin-transforming results.
What are the benefits of a thread treatment?
The thread treatment delivers two types of results: immediate and ongoing.
Because Dr. Davis and Kasey literally thread these materials through your skin, the threads give them the ability to lift any areas that need it, including drooping eyebrows or lids and sagging cheeks or jowls. The thread provides your skin with the additional structural support it needs to move into a more youthful-looking position.
As the thread dissolves into your skin, it encourages the production of a new network of collagen. Collagen is the protein in your skin that helps it stay supported, taut, and elastic. Because a thread treatment kickstarts your body’s production of new, healthy collagen, it delivers natural facial rejuvenation.
Successive treatments can help your skin produce more and more collagen for longer-lasting results.
What types of thread treatments are available?
The Boat Club Medical Spa team knows that everyone’s skin is different, as are their aesthetic goals. They offer several thread treatments so patients can achieve their desired look.
Barbed PDO threads
With small barbs protruding from the PDO thread, this treatment gives the skin an additional lift and more structural framework to defy gravity and look youthful.
Non-barbed PDO threads
For patients more concerned with smoothing wrinkles than lifting skin, threads without barbs are ideal. Kasey and Dr. Davis use non-barbed threads to smooth nasolabial folds and smoker’s lines, plump thinning lips, and more.
Could the contours in your mid-face use a lift? If so, Silhouette InstaLift treatments are designed to do exactly that, rejuvenating your appearance.
Thread treatments can be combined with Botox and dermal fillers to give you a complete facial refresh without the need for any surgery.
Are you ready for a minimally invasive facelift? If so, call Boat Club Medical Spa or schedule your appointment online to get started with your thread treatment.
You probably have a sense that you should visit the doctor on a regular basis for a checkup. But do you know what that checkup should include? Are you confident that an annual visit is giving your doctor a clear picture of your overall health? If you can’t confidently answer yes, it’s time for a wellness exam at Boat Club Medical Spa. Jerry Davis, DO, and Kasey Murphy, PA-C, offer comprehensive, personalized wellness exams. Schedule yours by calling their Fort Worth, Texas, office or booking your appointment online.
What are wellness exams?
A wellness exam is another name for a checkup. With these exams, your Boat Club Medical Spa provider can assess your general health, screen you for diseases, and offer recommendations that improve your well-being.
Regular, comprehensive screenings allow providers to catch diseases in their earliest phases when they’re easiest to treat. Dr. Davis and Kasey are dedicated to disease prevention and early disease detection.
What should I expect during a wellness exam?
At Boat Club Medical Spa, each exam is tailored to that individual. You will talk with Dr. Davis or Kasey about your personal and family health history, and complete a vision and hearing screening. Lab tests may also be requested to check health markers and look for vitamin deficiencies. Beyond that, the additional components of the exam will be tailored to you.
Other tests that may be a part of your wellness exam include:
Baseline electrocardiogram (EKG)
This test measures the electrical activity of your heartbeat, enabling screening for any potential health challenges and providing the Boat Club Medical Spa team with a record they can use to assess your heart health year after year.
This testing allows the Boat Club Medical Spa team to check for plaque buildup in your arteries, which could lead to stroke and heart disease.
If you’re a smoker or you used to smoke, your provider may recommend this test to check for lung diseases.
With a simple in-office skin test, the allergy experts at Boat Club Medical Spa can identify your allergies so you can know what’s triggering allergic reactions, whether that’s food, environmental allergens, or pet dander.
Pharmacogenetics medication testing
With this test, your provider can determine if you have certain genes that would cause an adverse reaction to certain medications. This minimizes your risk of side effects and helps them prescribe the right medication for your needs.
How often should I get a wellness exam?
These exams are most effective when performed on an annual basis. That way, your provider has a regular opportunity to detect any changes in your body and screen you for any diseases for which you may be at risk.

What’s keeping you from feeling your best? If it’s persistent allergic symptoms, you may be spending your days contending with a runny nose, upset stomach, itchy eyes, and more. Jerry Davis, DO, and Kasey Murphy, PA-C, are here to change that. Through comprehensive skin and blood testing, the providers at Boat Club Medical Spa in Fort Worth, Texas, can help find the right treatments to alleviate your allergic symptoms. To learn more or to set up your allergy test, call Boat Club Medical Spa today or book your appointment online.
You experience an allergic reaction because your body misinterprets a harmless substance as an invader. As a result, your immune system creates antibodies and triggers inflammation — usually in your airways, skin, sinuses, or digestive system — when it comes into contact with the allergen.
What are the different types of allergies?
Part of the challenge in getting relief from your allergies is figuring out what’s causing them in the first place. There are a few common types of allergies, each with their own unique set of symptoms.
If your body has an allergic reaction to a certain food or food group, your symptoms may include:
- Swelling in and around your mouth
- A tingling sensation on your lips or tongue
- Trouble breathing
- Upset stomach
You experience allergic rhinitis, commonly known as hay fever, when certain plants and their pollen trigger an allergic response in your body. The symptoms include:
- Runny nose
- Itchiness in the face
- Red, watery, and/or itchy eyes
Animal dander allergies
The allergic reaction caused by an allergy to an animal is very similar to hay fever. Symptoms can include:
- Facial itching
- Nasal congestion
- Runny nose
What can I do about my allergies?
Fortunately, regardless of your allergy, there’s a treatment that can help you minimize your symptoms and maintain your quality of life.
First, Boat Club Medical Spa providers use in-office skin testing and advanced blood testing to perform a comprehensive scan of your body, finding even allergies that are commonly overlooked by less thorough screenings.
Then, they work with you to put a treatment plan in place. An obvious element of this treatment plan is to avoid the trigger whenever possible. That and taking over-the-counter antihistamines may be enough to control your symptoms. If not, they also offer immunotherapy.
What is immunotherapy for allergies?
During this treatment, also known as allergy shots, your Boat Club Medical Spa provider injects you with a very low dose of the allergen. Over time, repeated exposure to this allergen reduces your body’s response to it, offering you significant relief from your symptoms.
Allergies shouldn’t play an ongoing role in your life. To alleviate your symptoms so you can enjoy your days allergy-free, call the office or book your appointment online.
As you age, the levels of your hormones fluctuate, sometimes causing your body to go haywire. If you’re experiencing poor sleep quality, a low libido, and mood changes, your symptoms may be due to a hormonal imbalance. Jerry Davis, DO, and Kasey Murphy, PA-C, at Boat Club Medical Spa in Fort Worth, Texas, offer bioidentical hormones to keep your body balanced as you age, eliminating the side effects that may be keeping you from feeling your best. To learn more, call Boat Club Medical Spa or schedule your appointment online.
As you get older and move past your reproductive years, your body begins to produce less of certain hormones, including testosterone and estrogen. This fluctuation can throw your body into a disrupted state.
Some of the most common symptoms of these decreasing hormone levels include:
- Poor sleep quality, insomnia, or general fatigue
- Mood changes
- Weight gain
- Low libido
- Hot flashes
- Mental fog
- Vaginal dryness
- Erectile dysfunction
Clearly, shifting hormone levels can bring about a number of unwanted changes in your body. Fortunately, with bioidentical hormones, the providers at Boat Club Medical Spa can rebalance your hormones and restore your body to normalcy.
What are bioidentical hormones?
Bioidentical hormones are hormones derived from plants and compounded in labs that share the same molecular structure as the hormones your body produces. When your body can’t differentiate between these bioidentical hormones and its own naturally produced hormones, the risk of side effects is minimized and the treatment is most effective.
How does bioidentical hormone therapy work?
The process starts with a consultation, physical exam, and lab testing at Boat Club Medical Spa. This way, the team can customize your bioidentical hormone therapy program to your body’s specific hormone levels, effectively balancing any deficiencies and improving your well-being.
You may receive your hormone therapy topically, as an injection, or as a pellet.
What are bioidentical hormone pellets?
The pellets are small and cylindrical, and contain the precise type and amount of bioidentical hormones prescribed for your body. The pellet is inserted into your tissue during a quick and easy procedure performed in the Boat Club Medical Spa office. Once placed, the pellet releases a consistent stream of the hormones into your body for the next 3-6 months.
With bioidentical hormone pellets, you don’t have to worry about getting treatments more than a few times a year. Your body has a steady supply of the hormones it needs to feel balanced.
Don’t let fluctuating hormone levels rob you of your quality of life. To learn more about what bioidentical hormones can do for you, call Boat Club Medical Spa or book your appointment online today.
Are wrinkles compromising your complexion? If you have creases on your face that you’d like to smooth, set up an appointment at Boat Club Medical Spa. Kasey Murphy, PA-C, offers Botox®, XEOMIN®, and Dysport® to help patients turn back the clock and look their best. To learn more about receiving this treatment from a certified cosmetic injector, call Boat Club Medical Spa’s Fort Worth, Texas, office today. Alternately, you can book your appointment online.
What is Botox?
Botox is a treatment designed to remove dynamic wrinkles. These are the wrinkles that form in places where your face is most expressive, like the area between your eyebrows or around your mouth. As your facial muscles repeatedly move in these areas, they cause the skin over them to crease. Over time, this repeated creasing results in wrinkles. Some of the most common dynamic wrinkles include:
- Crow’s feet
- Smile lines
- Wrinkles between the eyebrows
Botox can also be used for neck creases.
How does Botox work?
Botox is short for botulinum toxin. When Kasey injects a very small amount of this toxin into a targeted area, it freezes the muscle in place. This paralysis causes the skin over the muscle to release and lay flat, which makes this treatment a highly effective way to release dynamic wrinkles.
Botox is the brand name for one of the most commonly used botulinum toxins, but Boat Club Medical Spa also offers other brands, including Dysport and XEOMIN.
If you’re concerned the frozen results of this treatment could leave you looking fake or plastic, don’t worry. Kasey has an advanced certification in Botox so you can rest easy during your treatment. She’ll tailor your Botox injections to your desired aesthetic so you can get the smooth, youthful skin you want while still looking like your best self.
What should I expect during and after a Botox treatment?
One of the biggest perks of Botox is that it’s quick and easy. Most patients report that these small injections are relatively pain-free. And Kasey can perform them in minutes. In fact, most Botox treatments take 15 minutes or less.
After your injections, you can immediately continue on with your day. Many women get Botox as a lunchtime procedure, making it easy to maintain their optimal appearance even with a busy schedule.
The results from Botox aren’t permanent. They usually last between 3-6 months. When your wrinkles begin to reappear, Kasey can repeat the treatment to help you maintain your youthful, energized look.
Are you ready to transform your skin with a fast, simple treatment? Call Boat Club Medical Spa or book your Botox, Dysport, or XEOMIN appointment online today.
Is sagging skin aging you? Boat Club Medical Spa can help if you long for the days when your skin was plump and firm. With dermal fillers, Kasey Murphy, PA-C, can rejuvenate your face and help you look years younger. As a certified cosmetic injector, she’s ready to help you turn back the clock. Get started by calling Boat Club Medical Spa in Fort Worth, Texas, or by booking your appointment online.
What are dermal fillers?
Over time, the skin all over your body changes. Specifically, it produces less collagen, the protein that keeps it taut, plump, and elastic. It also loses hyaluronic acid and fat. This can lead to sagging skin all over the body, but it’s most apparent on your face. There, hollow cheeks, drooping jowls, and other changes caused by the skin’s increasing laxity and loss of volume can leave you looking older and tired.
Dermal fillers can reverse those changes. They’re ideal for people who want to:
- Fill in nasolabial folds
- Reduce the appearance of marionette lines
- Fill in hollow cheeks
- Minimize tear troughs
- Plump thinning lips
- Smooth wrinkles
Kasey also offers Bellafill, a collagen-stimulating dermal filler that can smooth wrinkles but is also an FDA-approved treatment for acne scars. Bellafill lasts five years.
How do dermal fillers work?
Many dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid, a substance your body already naturally creates. Synthetic dermal fillers are also available. Whichever option you choose, Kasey injects this gel-like substance into targeted areas to fill out the area under the skin. The increased volume at the injection site can restore volume to your face, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, and help you look years younger.
There are a wide variety of dermal fillers available. Boat Club Medical Spa offers:
- JUVÉDERM® products, including VOLUMA®, VOLBELLA®, and VOLLURE™
- Restylane® products, including Lyft™, Defyne™, Refyne™, and Silk
Before performing any treatment, Kasey takes the time to talk with her patients about their aesthetic goals. Then, she tailors treatment to their wants and needs, using the best dermal filler for their specific skin and desired outcome.
What should I expect during and after a dermal filler treatment?
This treatment is designed with your comfort and convenience in mind. A very small needle is used to inject the treatment. Most patients report that the procedure is comfortable and that, at most, they feel a slight burning sensation at the injection site.
The treatment itself is very quick. Most dermal filler procedures take 15 minutes or less. You’ll be able to see your results right away and continue on with your day immediately after.
Dermal fillers last between a few months to a year or more, depending on the type of filler used and the way it interacts with your unique skin.
If you’d like to rejuvenate your appearance, call Boat Club Medical Spa or schedule your appointment online to talk with Kasey about what dermal fillers can do for you.
Weight Management Specialist
Most people are aware that maintaining a healthy weight is key to optimizing wellness. But that doesn’t mean reaching — and staying at — a healthy weight is easy. Jerry Davis, DO, and Kasey Murphy, PA-C, of Boat Club Medical Spa offer weight management services to help those struggling to shed extra pounds achieve their weight-loss goals. To learn more, call the Fort Worth, Texas, office or schedule your appointment online.
Mesotherapy is the injection of pharmaceutical agents to target fat cells and cause these cells to dissolve. This treatment is ideal for patients with a normal BMI to dissolve small pockets of fat such as under the chin or love handles to help contour the body. This is not for weight loss or large areas of fat.
Is it really that important to maintain a healthy weight?
Absolutely. Excess weight doesn’t just impact your self-confidence, it also makes it significantly more challenging for your body to perform certain functions, including fending off a number of serious diseases.
Specifically, obesity is linked to:
- Type 2 diabetes
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Sleep apnea
- Joint pain
- Mental illness
In fact, studies have shown that being obese increases your likelihood of dying from any cause.
What are the benefits of this weight management program?
Boat Club Medical Spa’s weight management program leverages the latest advancements in weight loss — like hCG injections — and guidance from a weight loss expert, helping even those who have repeatedly tried and failed to lose weight see results.
This weight management program includes tailored care and supervision from Dr. Davis and Kasey, giving you built-in support to help you achieve your weight loss goals as quickly as possible paired with the medical supervision needed to ensure you do so safely.
What is included in the weight management program?
Boat Club Medical Spa providers use a variety of tools and techniques to help facilitate your weight-loss journey. Those include daily education videos, recipes, a body composition analysis, and the following options:
Ideal Protein Program
By getting involved in what you’re eating, Kasey and Dr. Davis can work with you to optimize your protein intake, stabilizing your blood sugar and ensuring you burn fat while protecting your muscle mass.
Natural liver detoxification
This seven-day program focuses on eliminating toxins from the body and laying the foundation for healthy eating. There’s an additional 14-day program designed to suppress appetite and further support weight-loss goals.
These pills are ideal for those who want a short-term aid they can use to kickstart their weight loss.
By injecting your body with the hormone human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), Dr. Davis and Kasey can speed weight loss. These injections are paired with a strict low-calorie diet designed to deliver quick results. They will help minimize food cravings while you follow the diet.
Kybella® (deoxycholic acid)
Kybella is the FDA-approved medication to dissolve the double chin. This helps improve the jawline and profile of the face. This relatively painless procedure is done in the office in about 20 minutes! Most patients require 2-4 treatments to achieve desired results.
Call Boat Club Medical Spa or schedule your appointment online to start your weight-loss journey.
Sclerotherapy is a treatment widely used to effectively eliminate varicose and spider veins. During this procedure, a sclerotherapy solution will be injected directly into the unwanted vein which irritates the lining of the blood vessel and causes it to collapse, clot, and eventually be reabsorbed by the surrounding tissue. This process forces the body to redirect blood to healthier, more capable veins, causing the unwanted veins to fade away. The sclerotherapy procedure is performed with a fine needle and small amounts of sclerosing solution.
