Platelet-rich plasma is a treatment option that utilizes concentrated platelets from your own blood. The platelets in your blood have a significant ability to help your body heal itself naturally.
Treatment with platelet-rich plasma injections may be accompanied by joint fluid therapy, therefore, we will design a fully custom PRP therapy plan to return you to health, happiness, and youthful vigor.
How Does Platelet-Rich Plasma Work?
We will draw a small amount of blood, spin it in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma. The resulting golden fluid is rich with platelets. We inject the fluid directly into the part of your body that needs repair. As a result, all healing factors present in your PRP will help your body return to a healthy state.
PRP Is An Effective Treatment Option For:
- Musculoskeletal injuries or pain
- Tears of ligaments, tendons, and muscles
- Restoring skin to a more youthful appearance
- Healing wounds
- Pain relief
- Hair restoration and growth
- Aesthetic procedures
- Sexual enhancement
When Can I Expect Results From PRP Treatments?
Platelet-rich plasma therapy results vary depending on the injury that we are treating or the aesthetic procedure performed. So, results will also depend on your body’s reaction to the treatment. Most patients suffering from an injury will see pain relief, due to reduced inflammation, rather quickly.
Aesthetic results begin to become noticeable at 2 weeks. Within 3 to 6 months from your initial treatment, the results will be measurable.
PRP Injections For Sports Injuries
PRP injections are healing tools utilized by some of the world’s top athletes. To keep these athletes on the playing field, their own PRP is injected directly into an injured joint.
