The superpower hiding in your blood

Platelets are cells in your blood that repair damaged tissues. They contain proteins known as “growth factors” which start the body’s repair process. Once released into your body, these growth factors attract stem cells, which flow to damaged tissues.

Stem cells actually rebuild damaged cells, and can even morph into the different kinds of tissues your body needs to repair itself— cartilage, ligaments, and even bone. This reconstruction all starts by unlocking the power held in your body’s platelets.

What PRP is used for

PRP can be used to repair a wide range of problems, from pain in the shoulders, elbows, knees, ankles and feet, to repairing damaged skin. Athletes and Hollywood celebrities have known about PRP therapy for years. Now, this same treatment is available to everyone.

PRP can repair old and injured joints by creating new cartilage and accelerating tendon and muscle repair to help patients avoid surgery. And PRP facials can reduce lines and wrinkles by naturally stimulating new collagen growth. Use the links above to learn more about how PRP is used to treat specific areas of the body.

What happens during your visit

Our doctors want to learn about your reason for visiting and discuss treatment goals with you. It is important to us that you understand how everything works, and what you can expect after treatment. Next, we take a blood sample. We spin it down to create a concentrated, platelet-rich solution.

We then inject this soluiton to the areas that need tissue repair. The whole process takes about an hour. Because we’re using your own blood, the risk of complications is next to zero. You can leave our office and continue to rest of your day as normal.

FAQ

Is PRP treatment covered by health insurance?

While coverage varies from plan to plan, we have generally found that PRP treatment is not yet covered by most health insurance plans. We hope that as the effectiveness of PRP therapy becomes more widely known, insurance companies will start recognizing it as a strong alternative to surgery.

Is PRP treatment painful?

If you can stand giving a blood sample and receiving a standard injection, you should not find PRP treatment too painful. Our goal is to help you avoid the pain of traditional surgery, and we’ll do anything we can to make you make you feel more comfortable!

How long before I see the results?

The exact time varies from person to person, and depends on the procedure you are having done. Many of our PRP facial patients begin noticing results before they leave the office. For joint pain, results tend to be felt within 4 to 6 weeks.

What happens during my visit?

We take a blood sample— just like the one you give during your annual physical. We spin it down in a centrifuge to distill your platelets from the rest of your blood to create your own, custom platelet-rich solution. Next, we carefully inject this PRP mix to the affected area. Your platelets starts triggering tissue repair at each injection site. In the case of skin treatment, new collagen and elastin will start to form.

Your entire procedure will take about an hour, and you’ll be able to continue your day after you’re done.

Is there any risk of complications?

Because PRP therapy uses platelets from your own body, the risk of complication is virtually zero. That’s one of the primary reasons PRP skin rejuvenation is a powerful alternative to treatments that involve injecting foreign material like collagen under your skin.

How long does PRP skin rejuvenation last?

In general, your results will last from 6 to 8 months. We recommend scheduling your next appointment during check-out.

Does PRP actually create new collagen?

Yes. A 2018 study in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal reported that PRP treatment resulted in the growth of new collagen and elastic fibers. Additionally, a 2011 study in the Annals of Dermatology found that PRP therapy led to new cell growth.

Very nice staff. Procedure done by a physician is a plus.

I had the microneedling with PRP done as well as PRP injections under the skin nine days ago– my skin is amazing (for reference I am in my late 30s)! There is an overall lift to my face, glow, and improvement to faint wrinkles and acne scarring already. If you’re able to take advantage of this great offer don’t wait! You will love it so much.

—Jennifer

…This team is really great. Very professional, very clean, very knowledgeable, and super friendly and welcoming! I’ll definitely be back. I had the microneedling. I’ve been to other places for microneedling on Groupon and this was the best. Plus, they’re led by an MD.

I was amazed the entire procedure took less than 45 minutes and was totally painless.

I had a fantastic microneedling prp facial with Paula! She was amazing! I will definitely be back. I’m only 1 week post prp and my skin looks so healthy already!
—Julie P.

I had a torn rotator cuff and didn’t want to go through surgery. I opted to go through [ReGen Med] and had great results. Within a few weeks I had more mobility in my shoulder and was able to lift heavier objects. It has been a few years since the procedure and I am still feeling great with good mobility. It beats surgery!
