Platelet Rich Platelet therapy is a cutting edge therapy where a patient’s own stem cells are collected, concentrated, and reintroduced into the body directly where the healing is needed. We concentrate a patient’s own blood, and separate out the necessary cells and growth factors needed to regenerate tissue. The process involves taking blood from the patient, spinning it down in a special centrifuge, and then injecting that back into the desired area. PRP is often used in musculoskeletal medicine for the treatment of injuries like ligament sprains and joint pain from arthritis and knee meniscus damage. The stem cells, platelets and growth factors help heal damage in and around joints by regenerating collagen in ligaments and tendons.
Many of our patients have avoided painful and dangerous surgeries with this relatively non-invasive therapy.
We also use this therapy to fill wrinkles and stimulate natural collagen production in anti-aging skin treatments as well as to stimulate hair growth and thickening.
