PRP Treatments

Your body has the power to heal itself from within, but sometimes it needs help. At Sports Medspa in San Diego, CA, we offer PRP treatments that unlock your body’s healing properties to achieve healthier skin, restore hair growth, and accelerate healing after a joint injury. This minimally invasive treatment process is comfortable and effective, doesn’t require downtime, and can deliver results without adverse reactions or side effects.

What Are PRP Treatments?

PRP treatments use the platelets, proteins, and healing properties in each patient’s blood to accomplish medical and aesthetic goals. These treatments naturally rejuvenate the skin, hair follicles, and joints by accelerating cellular repair, regeneration, and renewal.

How It Works

Regardless of which of our PRP treatments you schedule, the preparation process will be virtually the same. We’ll collect a sample of your blood to prepare for the treatment and use a device called a centrifuge to isolate the growth factors in the blood sample for use during treatments.

The centrifugation process separates the platelets so we can prepare them into the appropriate form to administer them accordingly. For our joint PRP treatments, we use a slightly different dual-spin process to ensure we obtain the highest platelet count to promote complete healing of the treatment area.

PRP for Hair Loss

We offer PRP for hair restoration to address how different factors have caused hair loss or decreased hair quality and health. Many factors can contribute to thinning hair, a receding hairline, or decreased scalp health. With PRP hair restoration, we promote healthier hair without invasive techniques, chemicals, or dangerous medications like Propecia.

The growth factors in PRP utilize each patient’s body’s abilities to stop hair loss and promote hair regrowth. This treatment also works to maximize the results of a hair transplant by healing the scalp and encouraging hair follicles to regrow healthy hair. We use it to treat:

  • Male pattern baldness
  • Hair loss
  • Hair thinning
  • Decreased quality hair

How It Works

PRP restoration treatments begin with the standard blood draw, and then we’ll prepare the growth factors into an injectable form. During the treatment, we’ll administer these growth factors to different areas of your scalp where you want to promote hair restoration. We make every effort to ensure each patient’s comfort during this process. After treatment, you can resume your normal daily activities.

Most patients see the best results within the first few months of treatment as the body responds to the PRP injections by healing damaged follicles, awakening dormant ones, and stimulating collagen production. The best results are visible within the first six months and maintenance sessions help you maintain healthier hair long-term. After completing the recommended sessions, patients can expect the following:

  • Healthier hair
  • Visible and lasting hair growth
  • Improved scalp health
  • Healthier hair follicles

PRP for Facial Rejuvenation

Our facial PRP treatments can reverse aging and rejuvenate the skin with the healing properties, growth factors, and proteins found in PRP. We offer a PRP facial, a non-surgical, state-of-the-art aesthetic treatment that uses the growth factors in PRP to renew and rejuvenate the skin. During treatment, we inject platelets under the skin with a small, thin needle.

Administering PRP via injections is a highly effective method that delivers better results than superficial approaches with PRP. PRP injections are like natural dermal fillers but don’t use artificial ingredients or additives to generate results. We use PRP facial injections to treat the following:

  • Dark circles beneath the eyes
  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Volume loss
  • Aging skin
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Facial scarring

What Are the Benefits?

Patients who undergo a PRP facial and receive injections into different areas of the face for skin rejuvenation can expect a quick and comfortable treatment process. Some of the treatment benefits of the PRP facial include the following:

  • Visible reduction in deep creases, wrinkles, and fine lines
  • Improvement in the appearance of acne scars
  • Increased skin volume
  • Improved skin elasticity

When Will I See the Results?

Patients can expect the full treatment results within the first few weeks to months following the initial session. As the body responds to the treatment, regenerates skin cells, and stimulates natural collagen in elastin production, you’ll see positive improvements in the appearance of your skin. Once you achieve your full results, they can last up to 18 months. You can expect:

  • Younger looking skin
  • Improved skin health
  • Accelerated cellular regeneration
  • Increased collagen and elastin production

PRP for Joint Injections

We also offer PRP treatments for joint pain and injuries. We use platelet-rich plasma injections to treat ligament, tendon, joint, and bursa pain in the elbow, knee, shoulder, ankles, and more.

These platelets have clotting abilities and contain growth factors promoting tissue regeneration and healing in the treatment area. We accelerate the healing process after a joint injury with PRP injections to force the body to use the growth factors in PRP to generate new tissue. Benefits include the following:

  • Accelerated healing after injury
  • Improved joint health and function in the treatment area
  • No adverse or allergic reaction
  • Decreased inflammation

How It Works

We use a dual-spin process called double centrifugation when preparing the PRP for joint injections, to accelerate the treatment process and optimize the results. Studies on PRP for joint injections revealed that double centrifugation results in a higher platelet quantity and a purer PRP formula than a single centrifugation process.

A higher platelet count is beneficial when treating joint injuries because it accelerates healing, especially when treating sports injuries like tennis elbow, torn tendons, golfer’s elbow, rotator cuff injuries, and jumper’s knee.

Heal Your Body the Natural Way

If you want to rejuvenate your skin, reverse hair loss, or accelerate healing after a joint injury, our PRP treatments can help you achieve your goals without side effects, downtime, or discomfort. We can give you more information about the benefits of platelet-rich plasma and how our treatments work at your initial consultation. Then, we’ll design a customized treatment plan that unlocks your body’s healing capabilities so you can safely achieve your cosmetic or medical goals.
