Growth Factor


Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Minimally invasive, cell-based therapy introduces cells from one part of the body to the impacted area, for accelerated restoration. Stem cells work by releasing proteins called growth factors to help heal, repair and restore damaged areas.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) or Platelet Lysate Injection Treatments is a growth factor based treatment, where blood is drawn from a patient and then placed in a centrifuge where it is spun out to separate the platelets from the remainder of the blood. To complete the process the doctor takes the platelets and recombines them with a lower volume of blood plasma to create a fluid with a higher-than-normal concentration of platelets, thus growth factors (special proteins that trigger growth and healing in the body) and then injected into damaged tissue for to help expedite the process of rebuilding collagen and tissue.


Treatments may provide hair restoration for those suffering from androgenic alopecia and alopecia areata.


This procedure promotes collagen synthesis, which accelerates skin renewal and cell growth. Your tissue regenerates, as a result, rendering your skin firmer and more youthful in the process.


Treatments may heal injured or diseased articular cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and muscles. This holds a particular benefit for soft tissue that ordinarily lacks significant blood flow and has gained significant popularity among those with orthopedic injuries.


Therapies may regenerate tissues damaged by chronic or acute wounds (including scar tissue and burns) as well as counteract the visible effects of aging and ultraviolet radiation upon the skin.


Injections may address erectile dysfunction in men (Eros) as well as urinary incontinence, vaginal dryness, and reduced sexual stimulation and pleasure in women (Aphrodite). Needed every 6-9 months.


The difference between Stem Cell and PRP?

Both regenerative processes can be effective to accelerate healing, however, each process is different. Stem cell therapy involves injecting cells harvested from the patient’s own marrow, while in PRP, plasma is extracted from blood and platelets are enriched to be injected. Harvested platelets are injected to heal tendons, ligaments, and cartilage. Stem cell treatments have a more robust reaction releasing more healing factors and may activate surrounding stem cells which can provide results beyond the capacity of PRP.
