What is PRP? PRP refers to platelet-rich plasma, a concentrated blood product that is created by separating blood’s plasma from its platelets via centrifuge. PRP is considered a branch of regenerative medicine and is given as an injection to treat various injuries and degenerative conditions in the body. We offer PRP as one of our customized, non-surgical regenerative medicine treatments to fix the underlying cause of your pain and provide all-natural pain relief.

The platelet-rich plasma injection is synthesized after the doctor draws some of your blood. The small sample is spun to separate the components of blood. The platelets are concentrated in your plasma and injected into the site of an injury or facial imperfection for the Vampire Facelift.
PRP contains a rich solution of growth factors, proteins, platelets, and other healing agents. When present at the site of an injury or degenerative condition, they all get to work healing tissues and enabling your body’s own healing process.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy
Platelets are the smallest type of blood cells and are shaped like dinner plates, hence their name. When the body sustains an injury, it releases a chemical that alerts and activates healing processes. When platelets receive this signal, they activate into healing cells, resulting in an extended shape.
The primary task of these healing platelets is to alleviate pain. PRP is effective because of the presence of growth factors that are vital for repairing cells and reducing inflammation. A PRP injection at the targeted site will help the body naturally return joints, muscles, and other tissues to normal function.
PRP is also effective for aesthetic purposes to renew the skin, improve elasticity, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. PRP facelifts or Vampire Facelifts involve strategically administering injections under the skin in order to increase naturally occurring proteins that enhance your skin and create a youthful glow.
Platelet-rich plasma treatment is a safe alternative to surgery. It utilizes your own blood to help repair and renew damaged tissue, meaning that your body will not reject a PRP injection. It’s an all-natural pain relief treatment that accelerates your body’s recovery time.
