Platelet Rich Plasma
If you’re suffering from injuries, illness, or pain, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is an all-natural, non-surgical solution that helps heal your body. Our doctors have successfully treated patients in the Tarpon Springs area with PRP treatments for pain and conditions that are just like yours.
In addition to pain relief, PRP treatments are used for aesthetic purposes to renew the skin, improve elasticity, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
No matter what symptoms you have, or what cosmetic results you’re interested in, our doctors can help you improve your health and outlook with regenerative medicine and PRP treatments.
Platelet-rich plasma injections help your body recover by introducing a higher concentration of healing factors into the target area. After drawing some of your blood, our doctors synthesize the PRP injection. The small sample is spun to yield a higher volume of platelets into the plasma, and then that serum is injected into the site of your injury or damaged tissue in order to accelerate healing.
PRP injections contain a rich solution of platelets, proteins, growth factors, and other healing agents. When present at the site of an injury, they all get to work healing tissues and influencing other regenerative cells to help.
When used for cosmetic treatments, such as the Vampire Facelift®, the PRP injection is localized in the area of facial imperfections. By administering the platelet-rich formula, in combination with all-natural fillers, under your skin, the naturally occurring proteins will rejuvenate your skin, replace older cells, and lessen wrinkles.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy
When your body sustains an injury, it releases a chemical that alerts and activates healing processes. When your platelets receive this signal, they activate into healing cells.
The primary task of platelets is to alleviate your pain and repair the damaged cells in your body. PRP accelerates the delivery of these pain relievers and therefore your recovery. Due to the abundance of growth factors, PRP is an effective, long-lasting treatment that helps your body restore your injured tissue. PRP therapy will deliver a higher concentration of healing factors to the source of your pain, which will help your body naturally return joints, muscles, and other tissues to normal.
A PRP treatment is a safe alternative to surgery. Since it uses your own blood to help renew damaged tissue, your body will not reject a PRP injection. Platelet-rich plasma treatment is effective for multiple conditions, including:
- Torn ligaments
- Muscular tears
- Torn or partially torn labrum
- Elbow, hip, and other joint pain
- Knee and ankle injuries
- Shoulder pain, such as a torn rotator cuff
- Sciatica and back pain
- And more!
Your symptoms are unique to your condition, but PRP treatments will help reduce your pain, boost your body’s ability to heal naturally, and shorten that road to recovery. Our goal is to get you back to a healthy lifestyle so that you can enjoy your activities, return to work, and live pain-free.
