PRP Therapy in O’Fallon

What is PRP Therapy?

vials for blood testingPlatelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a treatment that uses a patient’s own blood to promote healing. It is a minimally invasive procedure that has gained popularity in recent years as a natural alternative to more invasive treatments.

Platelets are a type of blood cell that help with clotting and wound healing, and they contain growth factors that promote tissue repair and regeneration. PRP therapy is typically used to treat musculoskeletal injuries, such as tendonitis, arthritis, and muscle strains, as well as skin conditions, such as acne and wrinkles.

Benefits of PRP

This therapy offers several potential benefits for individuals with certain conditions. Some of the benefits include:

  • Faster healing: Injections may accelerate the healing process for injuries by delivering growth factors and other healing compounds directly to the affected area.
  • Reduced inflammation: Therapy can help reduce inflammation in the body by blocking certain pro-inflammatory cytokines.
  • Improved skin appearance
    Sessions can stimulate collagen production, which can improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other skin imperfections.
  • Non-surgical: PRP therapy is a non-surgical treatment option that may offer benefits similar to surgery without the risks and downtime associated with invasive procedures.

What to Expect At Your Visit

Wondering how your first treatment will go? Here are some things you can expect:

  • Blood draw: We’ll begin by taking a sample of your blood, typically from your arm, and place it in a centrifuge machine that separates the platelets from the other components of your blood.
  • Injection: Once the platelets have been concentrated, we’ll inject the PRP into the targeted area using a fine needle.
  • Recovery: After the injection, you may experience some mild swelling or soreness at the injection site. You may be advised to avoid certain activities for a period of time to allow for proper healing.
