The Science Behind Platelet-Rich Plasma

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) consists of concentrated platelets and growth factors that promote healing and regeneration of injured tissues. PRP is derived from your own body, and is 100% natural. PRP injections are an increasingly popular alternative to surgery and safer long term than shots of steroids. Although still investigational by most insurance companies, these therapies have proven to be effective for patients of all ages.

To harvest PRP, a small sample of blood is drawn into a specialized collection system and then centrifuged at high speeds to isolate the growth factors and platelets. Because the blood drawn is used for a therapy treatment on the same patient, there is no risk of a transmissible infection or allergic reaction. These therapies are a safe, nonsurgical treatment option for any acute and chronic pain conditions, wound care, and aesthetic applications.
