What is PRP?

PRP is platelet-rich plasma, a type of plasma sourced from your blood. The rich platelet concentration in RPR stimulates your body to heal by generating new cells, thereby reducing chronic pain. It’s an all-natural, holistic wellness treatment that offers exceptional results.

What are the benefits of PRP?

The advantages of choosing PRP at IV MD include:

  • Faster healing
  • Less pain
  • Reduced inflammation
  • Increased cell growth
  • No risks
  • Minimal to no side effects
  • No downtime

PRP reduces the need to take harsh pain medicines or undergo surgery. The results you experience are long-lasting.

What is PRP used for?

PRP can treat the following injuries and diseases:

  • Tendonitis
  • Strains
  • Sprains
  • Muscle, ligament, or tendon injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Sports injuries
  • Fractures
  • Car accident injuries
  • Age-related tissue wear-and-tear

PRP also helps you heal faster after undergoing surgery. 

PRP injections can restore faster hair growth to reduce balding or stimulate cell regeneration to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and other common signs of aging.

What should I expect during PRP treatment?

During treatment with PRP, your IV MD specialist obtains a blood sample. They use a centrifuge to isolate PRP from the rest of the blood. This process often lasts about 15 minutes. Your provider can numb the treatment area to optimize your comfort before injecting the PRP into painful or damaged tissues while you relax. 

Your specialist might use ultrasound or other types of imaging to guide needle placement during the injections and achieve optimal precision and accuracy. 

What happens after my treatment?

After you complete PRP injections, little to no downtime is needed, which means you can resume working or other activities of daily living immediately. You may have tenderness, redness, or slight swelling at the site of the injections, but these common side effects disappear within a day or so.

During the next few weeks and months, cells within your body regenerate, and you can expect quicker healing, thicker hair, younger-looking skin, and less pain. Your IV MD specialist often recommends a series of PRP injections to achieve the most benefit from your treatment.
