Plasma-Rich Plasma treatment IN TARPON SPRINGS

Plasma-Rich Plasma treatment, PRP, simply put is “Tissue and skin regeneration and rejuvenation!” The process involves our medically trained staff to perform a blood draw to place in our Eclipse centrifuge. The centrifuge will spin and separate your blood into sections, allowing us to utilize all of your plasma, or “liquid gold” for your treatment. We apply your “liquid gold” to the skin and perform a micro needling treatment to drive the plasma into the skin and achieve a “rebirth” of all your skin’s important proteins, especially collagen.
Although each service is tailored to our patient’s specific needs, a series of 3 to 6 treatments is typically recommended, completing one every 6 weeks with one to two maintenance treatments throughout the year, for continuous improvement and collagen production optimal results lasting up to two years! PRP is also used in hair restoration.

PLATELET RICH PLASMA INJECTION

Injections of your own plasma are used to decrease or eliminate deep lines and wrinkles in specific areas, such as crow’s feet or dark under eye circles, by assisting your body to produce collagen and protein in that area.

PRP HAIR RESTORATION

Pattern Baldness, Alopecia, Hormone and Protein Deficiencies can be hard to live with but with PRP Hair Restoration, results have been seen between the 1st and 4th treatment of improved hair growth.

PRP are specialized cells called Platelets, that can in theory cause growth of the hair follicles by stimulating the stem cells and other cells in the microenvironment of the hair follicle. These specialized Platelet cells promote and accelerate the rate and degree of tissue healing and regeneration, responds to injury, and formation of new cellular growth. The goal of using PRP in hair restoration is to stimulate inactive or newly implanted hair follicles into an active growth phase.

Although each service is tailored to our patients specific needs, a series of 3 to 6 treatments is typically recommended, completing one every 4-6 weeks for the first year, followed by three maintenance treatment yearly.

PRP FAQ

What are PRP Injections?

Platelet Rich Plasma Injections are used to stimulate healing using one’s own blood components. The physician will withdraw your blood, put the blood into a centrifuge where the platelets are extracted (platelets are now known to release healing proteins known as growth factors) and then inject that solution directly into the injured site using an ultrasound guided technique to ensure proper placement. These proteins then stimulate repair and regeneration at the site, offering the patient pain relief and quicker healing rates. In most cases, 1-3 injections are required.

What Conditions are Treated with PRP?

PRP Injections can treat a number of conditions for the hip, knee, arm, shoulder, lower leg and feet. It is best to consult with your physician for a complete listing. However, below is an abbreviated list of conditions that can be treated with PRP.

  • Acute muscle tears and strains
  • Chronic Tendinopathies (tennis elbow, Achilles tendon, patellar tendon and rotator cuff)
  • Ligament injuries (ie: medial or lateral collateral ligament—MCL/LCL)
  • Osteoarthritis

Why Use PRP Injections?

Platelet injections are an alternative to surgery. Ideal candidates would be those who prefer a less invasive option to surgery or those who are unable to undergo a surgery. It also allows for a much quicker recovery period and is much less painful than a surgery.

It is important that patients considering this therapy find a doctor with experience in these types of injections. It is more likely to have a favorable outcome if the doctor administering the injections is experienced and skilled.

How does PRP Work?

A large amount of growth factors are released at the site of injury upon injection. These platelets induce an inflammatory response to initiate healing. The platelets are able to restore tendons and ligamentous proteins as well as strengthen cartilage allowing it to become firmer and more resilient.
