How Does It Work?
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Treatment is a safe, non-surgical procedure that involves harvesting and injecting one’s own plasma enriched growth factors (or PRP) into specific areas of the body to stimulate healing and tissue growth.
The PRP procedure begins with a localized numbing agent. Your medical provider will draw a small volume of blood from your arm and place it in a medical centrifuge device. The centrifuge spins down the blood to separate the platelets and growth factors from the rest of the blood components. When the process is complete, the resulting highly concentrated platelet rich plasma (PRP) is carefully injected back into the body at targeted areas. Once injected, these blood-derived growth factors ignite the body’s unique tissue renewal process. There is no recovery time and the results are almost immediate in some patients. Full results appear in 2-3 months.
