Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

PLATELET-RICH PLASMA PRP TREATMENTS

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a concentrate of platelet-rich plasma protein derived from whole blood, centrifuged to removed red blood cells. It has a greater concentration of growth factors than whole blood and has been used to encourage a brisk healing response of soft tissue, skin, tendons, and joints.

Main applications in sports medicine and orthopedics are acute muscle strains, tendinopathy and muscle-fascial injuries and osteoarthritis.

Main applications in dermatology for PRP are androgenic alopecia, wound healing, scar treatment, and skin rejuvenation.

We also offer PRP Therapy for injection into the penis and vaginal tissue for improved circulation, collagen-building and improved sexual responsiveness.

Prime MD uses PRP for cosmetic facials and collagen/elastin improvement, for hair restoration when coupled with additional growth factors and proteins, and for joint, tendon and muscle rehabilitation.

Platelet Rich Plasma’s natural healing process intensifies your body’s efforts by delivering a high concentration of regenerative growth factors directly into the damaged tissues.

Platelet rich plasma is a simple and relatively safe non-surgical procedure.

 

WHAT IS THE PROCESS FOR PRP?

Step 1: A small sample of your blood is drawn and collected into a special vial.

Step 2: The vial is then centrifuged at a high speed to isolate the PRP.

Step 3: Once the PRP has been isolated it is ready to be injected into your affected site.It is carefully injected using ultrasound if necessary to ensure proper placement.

WHERE DOES PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP) COME FROM?
To harvest PRP, a small sample of your blood is drawn into a specialized collecting system. This blood is centrifuged at high speeds to isolate and concentrate the growth factors. Because your own blood is used there is no risk of a transmissible infection.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT FROM PRP TREATMENT?
PRP is a safe non-surgical procedure that stimulates healing and treats acute and chronic pain. Although recovery times can vary patients generally begin to see improvement in pain and mobility within 4 to 6 weeks and improvement will continue for up to 12 months.
