What is PRP Therapy?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a medical procedure that utilizes the healing properties of platelets found in the blood to promote tissue repair and regeneration. In PRP therapy, a small amount of the patient's blood is drawn and processed to separate the platelets from other blood components. 

The concentrated platelets, rich in growth factors and proteins, are then injected into the targeted area, such as the scalp for hair restoration, joints for arthritis treatment, or skin for facial rejuvenation.

The growth factors released by the platelets stimulate cellular repair, collagen production, and tissue regeneration, promoting healing and enhancing the appearance or function of the treated area. We offer platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy in Sarasota & Tampa, FL, which is considered a safe and minimally invasive treatment option with a wide range of medical applications, including orthopedics, dermatology, and aesthetics.

The PRP Experience

On the day of your PRP injections in Sarasota & Tampa, you’ll visit our welcoming Sarasota office space and get started with a member of our patient coordination team. Your consultation will prepare you for everything that you can expect during your treatment, and your appointment will progress according to the treatment plan that you developed alongside your practitioner.

The PPR extraction process will start with a simple blood draw. We’ll provide you with whatever kind of topical anesthetic you might request in order to stay as comfortable as possible throughout this part of the process. Once we’ve drawn enough blood, it will be run through a special centrifuge that is used to separate the platelet-rich plasma from the rest of the blood.

Finally, the PRP formula will be injected into the treatment area according to the treatment plan that you and your practitioner developed together. We use a very fine-gauge needle to ensure that you remain as comfortable as possible. The entire experience typically takes less than a full hour to complete, meaning you’ll be able to rejoin your normal routine without taking too much time out of your schedule.

The Recovery Period

Most patients find they’re comfortable returning to their normal routines after their PRP therapy appointments are over. Of course, you will still be experiencing some of the limitations that may have been the reason for your PRP therapy appointment to begin with, as the treatment does not work instantaneously. Rather, PRP therapy helps to encourage your body’s regenerative abilities, enabling you to enjoy faster recovery times and enhanced treatment after certain types of injury or trauma.

You won’t have any downtime or recovery after your PRP injections in Sarasota & Tampa beyond a bit of redness and tenderness in the treatment area where the injections were made. This will fade quickly, however. Your practitioner will discuss your results timeline with you in detail so that you know exactly what to expect and when you can enjoy the full outcome of your PRP therapy session.

PRP Therapy FAQ

Does PRP really heal chronic tendon injuries?

How is PRP different from CRP therapy?

Does PRP really heal chronic tendon injuries?

Yes, recent studies have shown that PRP not only improves pain and function but also promotes healing. Athletes with chronic patellar tendinopathy experienced significant pain reduction, and their tendons returned to normal after PRP treatment.

How is PRP different from CRP therapy?

CRP (Cytokine Rich Plasma) offers several advantages over traditional PRP therapy. It contains optimal levels of growth factors and cytokines while eliminating pro-inflammatory and pain-causing blood cells. This purity enhances its effectiveness and pain reduction capabilities, making it ideal for non-surgical orthopedic injections in tendons, ligaments, muscles, and arthritic joints.
