What is PRP Treatment?
What happens during PRP treatment?
The treatment takes about a half hour (30 minutes):
1. We will draw a little of your blood.
2. While you wait, we spin down the blood until it separates into its different parts. Then we collect the PRP from your blood into a shot (syringe).
3. We use ultrasound to guide us to the right spot on your body.
4. We inject the PRP into your injury. The shot takes about 1 minute, and you may feel more than 1 needle stick.
You can have a PRP shot as often as you need it. Repeat treatments will depend on how well PRP works for you.
What does PRP do?
Studies have shown that PRP may accelerate healing.
Does PRP cause any side effects?
PRP is not a drug, and doctors see it as safe. Here are some side effects to watch out for:
• Pain-Some people have soreness in the spot where we inject the PRP.
• Infection-There’s always the risk of infection with any treatment that breaks the skin.
• Allergic reaction-In a few patients, the body rejects its own PRP. This is very rare.
• Bruising- Sometimes the skin around a PRP shot looks bruised.
How much does PRP treatment cost?
The charge for PRP shots at Tucson Wellness MD is $499.99 per treatment. Every plan is different, but many insurance plans don’t cover PRP. Contact your insurance plan to find out more.
What can PRP treat?
A lot of research has been done on treating certain problems with PRP. So these are the ones we use it for most often:
• Tendon injuries that are long-term (chronic).
• Arthritis that affects bones and cartilage in the joints (osteoarthritis).
Sometimes we use PRP:
• To treat short-term (acute) muscle and tendon injuries.
What is PRP, and how do you make it?
Blood has both liquid and solid parts. The liquid is called “plasma.” The solids are red and white blood cells and platelets. Platelets are known for their role in clotting blood. They also have proteins called “growth factors” that help to heal injuries.
A PRP shot contains plasma with platelets and growth factors. We have taken out the red and white blood cells.
Is PRP treatment new?
5 FAQ about PRP
1. What is PRP?
PRP [Platelet Rich Plasma] is a source of autologous concentrated preparation of platelets.
It is one of the most advanced and effective natural treatments for cellular rejuvenation
through out the body
2. How does PRP work?
PRP is extremely powerful because they contain several growth factors that responds to
tissue injury and stimulates stem cells to promote angiogenesis and neocollagenesis.
3. Is PRP safe?
PRP therapy uses platelets harvested from the patients own blood
ensuring no risks of disease transmission, allergic reaction or
4. Is PRP procedure convenient ?
PRP procedure is simple and safe. Blood is drawn and centrifuged to separate platelets,
then injected or applied topically to designated parts of the body.
Procedure is office base, lasting 30-60 minutes, with very little discomfort
and no down time.
5. How long do results lasts?
PRP “stand alone” should be done every 4-6 weeks and recommend 3-4 treatments
Experts state result may last 12-16 months.
We only carry umbilical cord tissue that has gone through third-party testing that shows viable mesenchymal stem cells.
Advanced Regenerative Medicine
Stem cells are the undifferentiated basic building blocks of life that are able to regenerate or differentiate into various tissues. When injected into a patient’s body, stem cell tissues can activate, repair, or replace damaged or degenerating tissue by communicating with the surrounding cells.
Benefits of Stem Cell Therapy
Our bodies use stem cells to repair themselves but, our own stem cells can be inhibited by injury, disease, or the aging process. Regenerative cell-based therapies provide potential treatment for the cellular breakdown caused by inflammation and tissue breakdown resulting in pain syndromes, as well as certain systemic conditions, and overall disease and dysfunction.
