Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet-rich plasma therapy involves using your own blood plasma and platelets as an enriched source of growth factors and immune cells. This concentrated source of platelets, growth factors, and immune cells stimulate healing of bone and soft tissue.

Our bodies are constantly trying to find equilibrium between the breakdown and regeneration of tissues. When we have an injury to a tissue or repeated stress on a joint resulting in osteoarthritis, tendinopathies, or rotator cuff injuries more emphasis is put on breakdown than repair and equilibrium is lost.

The goal of using regenerative medicine such as platelet-rich plasma therapy is to shift the equilibrium back towards regeneration by helping the body repair and heal itself.

This therapy can be utilized for minor tearing of ligaments and tendons, osteoarthritis, plantar fasciitis, ligament instability, and overuse injuries.

PRP Aesthetics

A PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma aesthetics is a remarkable and new non-surgical approach to facial skin rejuvenation and hair restoration. PRP is an organic plasma with a concentration of platelets taken from one’s own blood and is an enriched source of growth factors. Your own blood is concentrated to create a plasma rich in growth factors.

The PRP is taken and applied to the face using a microneedling technique to stimulate growth and repair. The growth factors do the work to regenerate dry and aged skin. PRP promotes the formation of healthy collagen and the deposit of elastic tissue.

The PRP can also be taken and applied to the scalp to stimulate “new” and “denser” hair growth. There are over 30 growth factors in PRP that repair blood vessel damage, skin damage, and provide nutrition to the cells in the scalp. PRP promotes new blood supply to hair follicles and reduces inflammation of the scalp creating healthy, productive hair follicles.

I injured my shoulder and was unable to really use it for about 6 months before going to see Dr. Carley Squires. She recommended Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections to stimulate healing in my shoulder. Dr. Squires took the time to talk to me about the procedure, my concerns, and the expected outcome. I have had great success with the PRP injection and would highly recommend Dr. Squires.
