WHAT IS PRP?
If you imagine stem cell therapy as a seed, then PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is the fertilizer. While it shows incredible potential to offer a wide range of benefits on its own, it shows even greater benefits when paired with stem cell therapy. Together, it could potentially reduce pain and improve function, reduce scarring, lower blood loss and bruising, and speed up healing and recovery.
PRP is essentially a fraction of your peripheral blood that can stimulate healing. Research shows that PRP activates recruited resident stem cells within your body and creates a higher likelihood of a positive response to your regenerative medicine procedure.
PRP can elicit a healing response by the use of platelets and numerous growth factors. Growth factors contained in platelet-rich plasma are directly responsible for activating autologous adipose derived stem cells and even allogenic umbilical cord stem cells. Each of the many growth factors contained play important roles in our body’s wound healing and cell regeneration.
Using PRP in effect acts as an activator of your stem cells and is essential as a medium for the stem cells to grow and proliferate in and help the cells get distributed to areas in need of repair and rejuvenation. Research has shown that high amounts of activated stem cells reintroduced back into your body can increase the likelihood of a positive response to a stem cell therapy procedure.
What Could PRP Help With?
PRP has the potential to speed up recovery for numerous conditions and diseases. For instance, in Osteoarthritis, some studies indicate that patients experienced significant observational improvements in function and pain after receiving PRP injections. Here are some more conditions it could potentially help with:
Wound Healing and Chronic Wounds
Not only does PRP have the potential to enhance wound healing on its own, but it displays increased speed and quality of wound healing when paired with stem cells taken from the fat on a patient’s own body.
Compared to traditional treatments of advanced wound dressing, PRP injections and patches also showed significantly improved healing outcomes for chronic wounds. At the end of treatment, patients receiving advanced wound dressings had wounds 25% – 50% of their original size. However, patients receiving PRP injections and patches had wounds less than 10% of their original size.
Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunctions
If you have trouble opening your jaw or get clicks and pain when you try, a recently published review might have an answer for you. In following up on several studies, they discovered encouraging results that showed PRP injections could help with pain, sound, and range of motion for patients with temporomandibular joint dysfunctions.
lantation and pregnancy rate for women in this situation.
In a rare case following a car accident, doctors used PRP to assist in the application of a skin graft that experienced complications. This is believed to have potentially allowed appropriate skin grafting in certain situations.
Skin Rejuvenation and Youthfulness
PRP has the potential to rejuvenate your skin, give you a more youthful look, and assist in healing scars, wounds, and injuries quickly and cleanly. For instance, a PRP facial could rejuvenate your skin, improve your skin tone, and reduce lines and wrinkles to help you look younger.
And Much More
From sports injuries to chronic conditions, PRP has been shown to potentially reduce pain, promote healing, and increase successful clinical outcomes. Contact a stem cell therapy provider for more information.
What is a PRP injection?
PRP injections are focused injections of platelet rich plasma containing important growth elements. When injected, this platelet rich plasma can stimulate your body’s natural healing responses so that you heal and recover faster, just like platelets help you heal from a cut.
What are the benefits of a PRP injection?
Since PRP is platelet rich and contains important growth factors, it can inflammation and injury heal more quickly.
Think about when you get cut. Your platelets gather at the site of the injury, forming a scab while your skin heals. Eventually, the scab falls off, the scar heals, and the pain fades. This is exactly what happens inside the body, too, and PRP can help stimulate this process at the site of your injury or inflammation.
What is a PRP facial?
As an aesthetic treatment meant to rejuvenate skin and provide a more youthful look, PRP facials may reduce fine lines and wrinkles without surgery. Because of this, PRP facials are a popular treatment for people who want to look younger and more beautiful.
What are the benefits of a PRP facial?
It can help rejuvenate the skin cells in your face and may make you feel and look younger. Collagen stimulation caused by a PRP facial can result in a decrease of fine lines and wrinkles, and the procedure could also improve skin tone and even tighten lax skin.
What are the 8 Growth factors contained in PRP and how can they help me?
FUNCTIONS AND SPECIFIC RELATION TO THE SKIN:
- Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) – Stimulates fibroblasts to secrete collagenase to degrade the matrix during the remodeling phase. Stimulates keratinocyte and fibroblast proliferation.
- Transforming Growth Factor- Promotes angiogenesis, up-regulates collagen production and inhibits degradation, promotes chemo attraction of inflammatory cells.
- Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) – Endothelial cells promote angiogenesis during tissue hypoxia.
- Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGF) – Promotes angiogenesis, granulation, and epithelialization via endothelial cell, fibroblast, and keratinocyte migration, respectively.
- Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF) – Attracts macrophages and fibroblasts to zone of injury. Promotes collagen and proteoglycan synthesis.
- Interleukins, Macrophages, keratinocytes, endothelial cells, lymphocytes, fibroblasts, osteoblasts, basophils, mast cells – Activates fibroblast differentiation. Induces collagen and proteoglycan synthesis.
- Colony Stimulating Factors – Stimulates granulocyte and macrophage proliferation.
- Keratinocyte Growth Factor – Fibroblasts stimulate keratinocyte migration, differentiation, and proliferation.
How do you obtain the PRP?
We take a small amount of venous blood from you (the patient) and isolate the layer containing platelet rich plasma. We take whole blood through sterile venipuncture for processing. Prior to the procedure the blood is transferred into a closed vacutainer tube and centrifuged to extract the PRP.
What is the procedure like for a PRP facial?
PRP facials are performed by using microneedling to prepare the face to receive a wash of important growth factors from a patient’s own blood. PRP facials like these could tighten lax skin, improve skin tone, stimulate collagen growth, and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.
This can give you a more youthful look and feel, and has been famously pursued by celebrities seeking to enhance their beauty.

Some insurance providers cover PRP injections, but if yours doesn’t, Dynamic Stem Cell Therapy offers both financing and a military discount. That’s a rare thing to find, so I’d recommend checking it out if you’re interested!
What is getting a regenerative medicine procedure like?
Getting a regenerative medicine procedure done at Dynamic Stem Cell Therapy is quick and effortless.
It all starts with a conversation to help us better understand your needs and offer a potential solution. If a procedure seems like the best option, we will help you schedule one in our relaxing spa-like environment and cutting edge surgical center.
Your procedure is normally scheduled within a 2 week time frame as you will need to get pre-op instructions and avoid the medications on our restrictions list for that amount of time. We look forward to your visit.
Upon your arrival, necessary paperwork and completion of payment will take place before our one of our registered nurses gets you prepped for your procedure.
Harvesting in the form of phlebotomy or syringe aspirated mini liposuction may be necessary. Cells sometimes need to be extracted, isolated, washed, neutralized and activated before returning them to your body with a simple injection into intra-articulate joints in combination with some infusions.
The entire process is over in as little as 45 minutes to just a few hours. Most patients can return to work later that day and even the next day without issue. Instructions on physical limitations, some medication, and even some dietary restrictions are given to each patient to help expedite the healing process.
We even offer regenerative medicine financing for all of our procedures.
