Platelet Rich Plasma
Are you suffering from a painful condition or wishing for a more youthful-looking appearance but don’t want to undergo costly or risky surgery?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy may be the solution you’ve been waiting for! We offer advanced regenerative medicine treatments like PRP therapy for pain relief and aesthetics to clients in Pinellas Park, and nearby cities.
Platelet-rich plasma injections are a minimally invasive treatment that uses substances in your blood to stimulate your body’s natural healing processes and give you all-natural pain relief.
During a PRP injection procedure, your blood is drawn and processed in a special medical device to extract and concentrate the platelets, a valuable source of healing growth factors. This serum is then injected into the affected area.
PRP enhances your body’s natural healing process, supplying it with key growth factors and first-responder platelets that can attract other helpers, like stem cells, to the injection site. As a pain relief procedure, the healing agents in PRP are incredibly helpful at tissue repair and regeneration. These same processes are essential to cosmetic procedures, where aging or scarred skin and dormant hair follicles need a boost.
PRP injections can be performed all over your body, wherever you’re experiencing pain or unhappy with your appearance.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy
How does doe PRP therapy work? PRP is a concentration of blood platelets into plasma, which contains therapeutic bioactive proteins that accelerate tissue repair and regeneration. These growth factors initiate connective tissue healing. New collagen begins to develop after injection, which eventually promotes tightening and strengthening of the tendons or ligaments, the development of new blood vessels, and aids wound healing. PRP therapy may eliminate the need for more aggressive treatments such as long-term medication or surgery.
If you suffer from pain from damaged or degraded cartilage, torn ligaments, plantar fasciitis, disc problems, or bone issues, PRP may be the all-natural pain relief treatment you need to return to normal function.
The procedure is less aggressive than surgery, will heal tissue with minimal or no scarring, and alleviates further degeneration of tissue. After PRP sessions, patients can see significant improvement in symptoms from conditions, including:
- Sports Injuries
- Rotator cuff tears
- Tennis/Golfer’s elbow
- Jumper’s knee
- Achilles tendinitis
PRP treatments have been used when traditional pain management treatments failed to provide pain relief for:
- Knee pain
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Shoulder pain
- Elbow pain
- Joint pain
- Hip pain
- And more
Platelet-rich plasma therapy is a game changer in aesthetics as well. Techniques like the Vampire Facelift or Facial promote facial and neck rejuvenation, reduce fine lines, and can help with scarring. PRP can also stimulate your scalp and hair follicles to help with regrowth after thinning hair or baldness.
