Platelet Rich Plasma Injections (PRP)

Platelet rich plasma, also known as PRP, is an ultra-concentrated solution of platelets and growth factors from your own blood. This powerful combination of revitalizing factors stimulates new tissue growth and can be harnessed for both aesthetics and improved joint pain.

PRP capitalizes on your body’s own natural healing properties to repair damaged cartilage, tendons, ligaments, muscles, and even bone. Once injected into the painful joint, PRP helps to inhibit inflammation and slow down the progression of osteoarthritis. The ultra-concentrated growth factors can stimulate the formation of new collagen and increase the production of the body’s natural lubricating joint fluid which both help to decrease pain.

BENEFITS OF PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP) IN JOINTS INCLUDE:

  • Reduction in joint pain
  • Improvement in joint function/mobility
  • Slowing, halting, and/or repairing damaged cartilage

At MARC, we offer PRP injections in the ANKLE, KNEE, HIP, WRIST, ELBOW, and SHOULDER.
 
The power of PRP also has a role in the world of regenerative aesthetics. PRP is known to promote skin renewal, tissue repair, and collagen growth at the cellular level leading to healthier younger-looking skin. 

BENEFITS OF PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP) IN AESTHETICS INCLUDE:

  • Reduction of fine lines
  • Increased tightening and improved skin tone
  • Improvement in dark circles and other discolorations
  • Improvement in rosacea
  • Reduced appearance of scars, including acne scars
  • Hair restoration

PRP can be delivered into the skin with the cutting-edge micro-channeling technology of DermaFrac. With DermaFrac, we can effectively treat many areas of the skin, including face, neck, décolletage, hands, and feet for maximum results.

Whether for joint pain or aesthetics, PRP is collected by a simple blood draw in the office. Following the blood draw, your blood is then concentrated and will be administered back to you either through a joint injection or DermaFrac treatment.
