To heal and repair your skin, body, and hair, look no further than your blood. Peter A. Martinez-Noda, DO offers platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy and other anti-aging services at his office in sunny Miami. Using cells from your own body, PRP helps to stimulate new growth, heal damaged tissue, and restore youth and vibrancy to your appearance.
Platelet-rich plasma therapy uses the healing power of your blood plasma to repair wounds, heal injuries, improve hair growth, and boost the body’s ability to fight off infection and disease.
The PRP solution contains powerful proteins and growth factors that improve the function of your cells and, as a result, provides incredible results when it comes to your skin, hair, and overall health.
Besides red and white cells, your blood contains platelets. To harness the power of the platelets, Dr. Martinez-Noda first draws a sample of your blood.
Using a special process that separates the platelets in your blood from other cells, he filters your blood and then increases the platelet levels through a process called centrifugation. Then, he adds the platelets to blood plasma to create your procedure's solution.
There are several ways to deliver PRP into your body. Dr. Martinez-Noda may recommend:
Dr. Martinez-Noda first meets with you to discuss which type of PRP therapy is best for your needs. You may need more than one appointment.
The actual procedure is quick, and patients do not tend to experience any pain or adverse side effects. You can return to your normal activities the same day as your treatment.
Doctors have used platelet-rich plasma therapy on athletes with injuries or tissue damage for decades. In more recent years, it has caught on as a viable, effective treatment method for many other health conditions or concerns. It can address specific medical conditions including wound healing, healing of tendinopathy, ligament injury, arthritis, and much more.
As a noninvasive, fast treatment method, PRP can deliver incredible results without side effects or an extended recovery period. When used for skin and hair renewal, the outcomes are often dramatic. For patients with chronic illnesses, PRP can also offer a safe and effective way to regain lost energy and improve the immune response.
