PRP Q & A

What is platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy?

PRP therapy uses plasma extracted from your own blood to stimulate the healing or growth process. Your doctor takes your blood and spins it in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the other blood cells.

Then, your doctor injects or applies the plasma to the treatment area. The platelets contain a high concentration of growth factors that tell the body to heal.

PRP injections help reduce pain and speed healing for conditions like Achilles tendonitis or muscle sprains. PRP may also help you recover more quickly after surgery.

What are PRP treatments used for?

The specialists at Anti-Aging & Wellness Center use PRP for several medical and aesthetic purposes, including pain relief, hair growth, and facial rejuvenation.

Pain relief

Dr. Shivinder Deol uses PRP for chronic musculoskeletal conditions, such as Achilles tendonitis, tennis elbow, and jumper’s knee. The therapy is particularly promising at reducing pain and improving healing for chronic tendon injuries.

Hair growth

PRP injections are a safe, effective nonsurgical treatment for hair loss. The injections provide hair follicles with the nutrients they thrive on to stimulate growth.

Facial rejuvenation

If you want more youthful looking skin, you can consider PRP facial therapy. PRP stimulates collagen production, which improves skin texture, color, and volume.

What are prolotherapy and prolozone?

In addition to PRP therapy, Dr. Deol uses prolotherapy and prolozone for pain relief and ligament regrowth.

Prolotherapy

Prolotherapy involves injecting an injured joint with a natural irritant to stimulate healing in the area. Dr. Deol may use prolotherapy and PRP therapy together to jumpstart the healing process for chronic musculoskeletal conditions.

Prolozone

Prolozone is a nonsurgical treatment ligament reconstruction method using an injection of oxygen/ozone, procaine, and collagen-boosting nutrients. The injection jumpstarts the tissue regeneration process and reduces inflammation, pain, and swelling.

Prolozone can provide permanent treatment for musculoskeletal pain related to:

  • Back and neck pain
  • Hip, knee, and ankle pain
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders
  • Tennis elbow

If you have pain in your muscles or joints, you may be a good candidate for PRP, prolotherapy, or prolozone treatments. Contact Anti-Aging & Wellness Center online or over the phone to learn more.
