What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy involves using the patient’s own blood, which is processed to extract a concentrated solution of platelets. These platelets contain growth factors that can stimulate tissue repair and regeneration, promoting healing and reducing inflammation.
Are all PRPs the same?
Not all PRPs are the same. The composition and concentration of platelets, growth factors, and other components in PRP can vary depending on several factors, such as the method of preparation, the quality of the equipment used, and the individual patient’s blood composition.
How do I know if the PRP will yield a therapeutic benefit?
To yield a therapeutic benefit, a dose of over 1 billion platelets per mL is required. That means that the platelet concentration should be 7X-10X higher compared to whole blood. Miami Stem Cell values transparency and that is why we acquired the latest equipment to measure patients’ blood concentration before and after concentration and these results are shown to our patients.
We offer the highest standard of Platelet Rich Plasma available today. We use only the most advanced, FDA cleared, and scientifically proven equipment which includes:
- A therapeutic dose of over 1 billion platelets per mL of PRP
- A high dose of growth factors released at the site of injury
- A high platelet yield which recovers over 80% of the platelets present in your blood
- The purest form of PRP available, removing red blood cells and neutrophils prior to injecting, thereby reducing inflammation and a host of negative effects
How do I choose between PRP or Stem Cell treatment?
The decision to use platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy or stem cell treatment for a particular condition depends on several factors, including the location and severity of the injury, the underlying cause of the injury, and the patient’s overall health and medical history.
PRP therapy is typically used to treat soft tissue injuries, such as tendinitis and muscle strains. PRP therapy can be effective for mild to moderate injuries, and it is often used in conjunction with other treatments, such as physical therapy and anti-inflammatory medications.
Stem cell treatment, on the other hand, is typically used to treat more severe or chronic injuries, particularly those that involve damage to bone, cartilage, or other tissues.
In some cases, both PRP therapy and stem cell treatment may be used together to maximize the benefits of regenerative medicine.
Ultimately, the decision to use PRP therapy or stem cell treatment depends on the specific condition being treated, the severity of the injury, and the patient’s overall health and medical history.
Our medical team has the right expertise in regenerative medicine and can help you to determine which treatment option is best suited for your condition.
PRP Treatment for Hair Loss
Hair loss is a common problem that affects both men and women. This can embarrass many, as it often causes a lack of self-esteem or confidence. PRP treatments involve injecting the patient’s platelet-rich plasma into the scalp at areas of thinning hair.
The growth factors released help stimulate hair follicles and encourage new hair growth. This can make a dramatic difference in thickening existing strands and encouraging new growth.
PRP Treatment for Back Pain
Back pain is another condition that PRP injections can be used to treat successfully. By injecting platelet-rich plasma directly into painful areas or areas with tissue damage or injury, this treatment can reduce inflammation and promote the healing of soft tissue injuries such as strains, sprains, tendonitis, or even disc problems.
PRP Treatment for Knee
Injuries to the knee joint can cause significant pain and lead to limited mobility when not appropriately treated. With PRP treatment, your body’s growth factors are injected directly into targeted areas to regenerate tissue cells damaged due to injury or wear & tear associated with arthritis.
This helps accelerate healing time by stimulating the production of new tissue cells that will provide relief from knee pain & improve overall knee function.
PRP Treatment for Arthritis
Arthritis is one of the most common causes of chronic pain among adults aged 65 and older in America today. Most people find traditional treatments like medication ineffective in managing their arthritis symptoms.
Fortunately, with PRP treatments, they can now find relief without resorting to invasive procedures or heavy reliance on drugs with potential side effects like nausea or drowsiness (which may interfere with daily functioning).
Injecting platelet-rich plasma directly into arthritic joints enables patients to experience reduced levels of inflammation, improved joint function & decreased pain levels after only 2-3 treatments!

Is PRP Treatment Painful?
The injection process itself may cause some mild discomfort at most. Moreover, a slight burning sensation may occur during activation when blood is drawn from a vein before being placed into a centrifuge machine.
The machine separates all its components, including red blood cells & platelets (which form your PRP solution). After this step has been completed, doctors use wonderful needles (similarly tiny in size as those used during regular blood tests) to inject the fluid into the targeted areas of your body, which should provide you with relief shortly after that!
