Did you know, your own blood has great natural healing potential? Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses injections of your blood to promote a natural healing response at the site of tissue damage and injury. As a leader in regenerative medicine treatments, we offer advanced, evidence-based PRP to help reduce pain and promote faster healing. We also use PRP injections in our beauty restoration and aesthetic enhancement treatments like the Vampire Facelift.
Platelet-rich plasma injections contain both platelets and plasma found in your blood. Plasma is the liquid part of your blood, while platelets are cell fragments that play an essential role in healing and clotting. If you've ever nicked your finger, you will notice that there's clotting around the wound. That's your platelets at work. Platelets also contain therapeutic proteins called growth factors that promote natural healing.
PRP injections are made from a sample of your blood, which is medically spun to concentrate the platelets. The concentrated serum is recombined with plasma and injected into your injured or damaged body part to stimulate healing. Because PRP uses your blood, there's less risk of adverse reactions. PRP is administered via injection directly into the injured area.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
Platelet-rich plasma is a safe, effective, all-natural procedure to heal damaged joints and soft tissue to eliminate your chronic pain. Growth factors in your blood platelets stimulate your tissues and cells to regenerate and renew, promoting the growth of new tissues and replacement of those damaged by disease or injury. You get faster, more complete healing without downtime or habit-forming prescription pain killers.
PRP therapy is an ideal all-natural solution that promotes faster healing while reducing the risk of infection.
