About the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

The process starts with the extraction of a small amount of your own blood that is placed inside specialized test tubes. The specialized tubes are place in a centrifuge that spins very fast to separate out and concentrate the platelet rich plasma packed with growth factors. Not all specialized tubes are created equal. We use RegenLab tubes because with RegenLab technology we obtain the highest concentration of platelets per tube.



  • What are the indications of PRP?
    While PRP was originally FDA approved for intra-articular injections to improve the function of joints, its regenerative properties makes PRP a great tool in Dermatology and aesthetic medicine.

    1) Helps support and accelerate wound healing

    A consultation is needed to determine if PRP is good for you.
  • How is the PRP treatment performed?
    This is an in-office procedure in which the plasma rich in platelets and growth factors is injected in the area to be treated.
  • Will it hurt?
    The procedure is well tolerated. In some cases a numbing cream is applied prior to the treatment to make it more comfortable.
