What is PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) comes from your blood and contains particular growth factors that trigger healing and regeneration in your body. By injecting high concentrations of PRP into an area of concern, Dr. Mark can help you regrow your hair, find relief from chronic pain, reduce inflammation, or improve your mobility.

Using PRP, Dr. Mark can treat a variety of soft tissue injuries, like torn ligaments or muscles. He also creates innovative treatment plans at All Functional Health using PRP for:

  • Facelifts
  • Infertility
  • Hair growth
  • Vaginal revitalization

Dr. Mark can determine if you’re a candidate for therapy using PRP after a review of your medical history and an assessment of your existing condition or symptoms.

In addition to PRP therapy, Dr. Mark offers injections of exosomes, which he harvests from human skin cells. This regenerative treatment may be more useful for rejuvenating sun-damaged skin than PRP.

How does PRP therapy work?

PRP therapy is an in-office, two-step minimally invasive process. To access the needed PRP for your treatment, Dr. Mark draws a sample of your blood. He separates PRP from other blood materials in a centrifuge, which quickly spins the blood to isolate PRP. Once prepared, Dr. Mark injects the PRP into specific areas of your body based on your treatment plan.

When using PRP for injuries, injections stimulate your body’s natural healing processes and the growth factors aid in repairing damaged areas of tissue. Over time, new cells replace damaged ones, improving your mobility, and easing pain.

If you are undergoing PRP therapy to revitalize your vaginal health, injections stimulate new, healthy collagen that plumps vaginal tissue to reduce chronic dryness, support your bladder, and improve your sexual satisfaction.

Injections of PRP can also be beneficial for treating infertility in men and women. PRP can rejuvenate your ovarian health by stimulating new tissue growth that supports a healthy pregnancy. For men, PRP therapy can increase sperm production in the testicles to improve the chances of conception.

Dr. Mark also offers PRP therapy as a strategy for hair restoration. PRP for hair loss is one of the most viable options for achieving a fuller head of hair naturally.

How does PRP promote hair growth?

Injections of PRP into your scalp can revive inactive hair follicles and trigger new, healthy hair growth. PRP for hair loss has a track record of proven results in patients who wish to recover thicker and fuller hair.

Dr. Mark also offers additional treatments for thinning or lost hair, including red light therapy. This treatment uses low-level laser lights to target hair follicles and stimulate new hair growth. To support your results, Dr. Mark may recommend Nutrasome hair thickening shampoos and serums.
