WHAT IS PRP THERAPY?

Platelet Rich Plasma injections (PRP Therapy) are very popular treatments here in Scottsdale, AZ. As a trendsetting city, the field of regenerative medicine has emerged as the leading edge in healthcare and PRP injections are a key piece of this. Composed of key growth factors found in platelets, PRP therapy treats soft tissue injuries such as tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints. Celebrity stars, top athletes, and weekend warriors have experienced amazing results with PRP therapy. 

Platelets are well known for their ability to stop bleeding, but they are also responsible for much more. When platelets reach an injury, they release Growth Factors. These growth factors are small proteins that direct the healing process. PDGF, VEGF, and TGF-B are a few of the very important signals that wake up stem cells, increase tissue proliferation, blood vessel formation and alert the immune system to the area. 

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy contains 5-10 times as many growth factors than whole blood. It is a purified and concentrated solution of platelets that supercharges the healing process. It is especially helpful for the areas of low blood flow and degenerative spaces.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING A PRP THERAPY TREATMENT?

At your treatment visit, we first draw a small amount of blood from your arm. We then spin the whole blood in a centrifuge to separate it into its constituents. The constituents represent the red blood cells, white blood cells, and the plasma. The plasma goes through a second spin to separate and concentrate the platelets and the PRP is finished. 

After using a local anesthetic, the PRP solution is injected into the treatment area often using ultrasound guidance. The growth factors will begin to signal the healing response over the next few days. It is completely normal to experience swelling and pain at the area. Over the next few weeks to months the desired effect will be reached.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Chronic Tendon Injuries

Recent research studies show that PRP therapy is highly effective in treating chronic tendon injuries, and in particular rotator cuff tendinitis. The use of the PRP procedure for other tendon injuries i.e. patellar tendonitis of the knee, and chronic Achilles tendonitis continues to show impressive results.

Acute Ligament and Muscle Injuries

PRP as a regenerative injection therapy has grown in scope due to famous celebrities receiving PRP treatment for acute sports injuries. This includes muscle tears and ligament injuries.

PRP injections are being used to treat high profile athletes with sports injuries such as a pulled muscle, a pulled hamstring or knee sprains. PRP therapy accelerates and improves the healing process in these common sports injuries.

The most common question that gets asked is how long does a treatment take. PRP therapy is a simple, in-office procedure that takes less than an hour from start to finish. Best of all, it is all natural and your own repair system targeted directly to the area that is in need of healing. PRP therapy continues to work over 3-6 months after the initial injection. Multiple treatments may be required depending upon the condition. This is the healing process.
Since drugs wear off over time, such as NSAIDs or a cortisone shot, most people think this also wears off. PRP Prolotherapy actually works over time healing the injury. At Source of Health, our treatment programs are customized to the individual patient based on their unique situation. No one treatment works for everyone. Putting a care plan together for the patient who is committed to the healing process and resolving their pain will result in a positive synergistic effect versus conventional models of care.
PRP treatments, in this case for hair loss restoration, are relatively new in medicine and insurance does not typically cover these procedures. Your average cost can vary between $600-$2000 per treatment depending upon how much PRP is needed to treat the area of concern.
Once injected into the damaged area, the wound healing process begins. Patients can expect to have progressive improvement of the injury back to health in as little as 6 weeks. Typically 2-3 treatments are required to start seeing regenerative improvements. Repeated treatments are usually necessary with more severe conditions.

Absolutely! PRP contains more than 20 different types of growth factors. Most significant are TGF-B1, PDGF, and VEGF that promote the growth of hair follicles and activate the dermal papilla (location of hair stem cells).

Once injected into the scalp, the growth factors are released from the platelets and get to work within hours. It is important to leave the scalp alone to keep the growth factors in the area treated. In addition, anti-inflammatory medications should be avoided for at least 3 days after the procedure.

We have about 100,000 hairs on our head and with normal shedding, we lose about 100 hairs every day. If you are having more shedding than normal, this can indicate an array of medical concerns. Most people tend to lose about 25% of the hair on our heads before we even notice there is a problem.

This is a very slow and gradual process. Before going directly to PRP treatment for hair, a thorough analysis of your health history must be obtained.

For best results, a series of 3 treatments 4-6 weeks apart are done and follow up treatments for maintenance are 3-6 months apart depending on your individual results and how much hair loss you originally had.
