Did you know, your blood has great natural healing potential? Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a natural option using your body’s healing power to treat chronic medical disorders. Our PRP therapy in South Florida is a non-surgical treatment that can help you achieve your health or appearance goals.
Your body has the inherent ability to heal from within. Platelet-rich plasma is a natural therapy that harnesses your innate ability to recover and gives your body a boost. PRP is an injected substance made in-office by concentrating your blood platelets from a sample.
Your blood is made up of a liquid component (plasma) and several solid cellular components, including platelets. These platelets are rich in proteins and molecules called growth factors that signal your body to heal itself.
Our policy is to never let money be a barrier between someone getting the care they want and need.
The advantage of PRFM is that this technology binds the platelets into a gel matrix, and extends the time the platelet activating factors are released to 6-8 days.
This allows for more prolonged recruitment of local stem cells and fibroblasts, which should produce a more profound effect at the injection site.
Unlike medications or cortisone injections, which suppress or mask the underlying problem, PRP shows the potential to heal.
PRP and PRFM are derived directly from a patient’s own blood.
After the blood is drawn, it is centrifuged, and the platelets are separated. Through a proprietary system, the platelets are prepared and remain in a liquid form for injection for about 15 minutes. Once they reach the tissue, the gel matrix is formed, and the beneficial effects start to occur.
To date, many patients have been treated with PRP injections. Success rates that appear in the published literature and across the web vary considerably. Although measurements and results vary, some are reported at greater than 90% success rate.
Platelets in your blood are responsible for healing. With PRP therapy, a sample of your blood is taken and placed into a medical device to separate and concentrate platelets, significantly boosting your body’s healing power once injected.
When PRP is injected into the site of your pain or injury, it stimulates cellular growth, tissue regeneration, and collagen production to improve function and reduce pain.
PRP contains therapeutic growth factors and bioactive proteins that act to speed up healing. Injected platelets release growth factors, which trigger a healing cascade, increasing blood flow, healing, the renewal of tissue, and restoration of damaged cells.
Because the treatment uses your blood, PRP is a natural, safe, low-risk treatment that tackles pain at its source.
If you’re in pain or tending an injury, you may have resorted to pain medications to help you manage the pain. You may get temporary relief, but prescription drugs only mask the pain without getting to the root of the problem. PRP therapy offers effective pain relief and healing so that you can avoid painful surgery and its associated complications.
We use PRP therapy as a regenerative medicine treatment to give you the results you need to return to your normal life and regain your mobility and confidence.
