What is Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy?
What is Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy?
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is an all-natural fluid that is extracted from a patient's own blood and injected back into the body, showing huge benefits for tissue regeneration and wound healing. A simple blood draw is performed right here in our office and the specimen is placed in a specialized centrifuge. The centrifuge spins rapidly, isolating the platelets and plasma from the other blood components. This process allows the nutrient rich platelets to separate from the blood, leaving behind a kind of a “liquid gold.”
Platelet-rich plasma is valuable because it contains a high concentration of growth factors. These include epithelial and vascular growth factors as well as fibroblast and connective tissue growth factors. Each of these promotes a vital process such as inflammatory response, blood vessel regeneration, tissue remodeling, and cell proliferation.
At Elevate Wellness Clinic, we offer PRP for a variety of applications including:
- Facial Rejuvenation
- Sexual Health (Vaginal rejuvenation and lasting treatment of erectile dysfunction)
- Hair Restoration
- Orthopedic Conditions

Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy for Hair Restoration
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy has been shown to be a useful treatment for men and women who are currently experiencing hair loss. PRP hair restoration therapy can not only promote hair growth, but it can also prevent hair loss before it happens, and therefore, PRP may be a great option to help prevent the progression of hair loss in patients with a significant family history of hair loss.
The growth factors found in plasma are essential to healing and growth functions throughout the body. These growth factors are concentrated in PRP, and when targeted to your scalp, dormant hair follicles gain a flood of growth-promoting substances. As a result, the likelihood that each dormant follicle will revive and produce new hair increases.

Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy for Orthopedic Conditions
Old sports injuries can make life miserable. Trying to get a good night’s sleep with soreness in the hips knees or shoulders can leave you exhausted throughout the day. f you have chronic joint, muscle or tendon pain from an orthopedic condition like bursitis or tendonitis, Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP Therapy) can help treat those issues.
New injuries can be proactively treated with PRP Therapy as well. Since muscle strains are one of the most common injuries sustained in sports, professional athletes have used PRP Therapy to relieve pain from those types of injuries for years. PRP is a regenerative therapy that aids in faster recovery by using the power of growth factors in your body’s own platelets to relieve pain and heal damaged tissue.
According to the severity and location of the injury, Elevate Wellness Clinic can provide different treatment options, including growth factor therapy through the careful administration of Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) during the early period following the injury.
