Platelet-rich plasma therapy has, in the past few years, gained popularity in the treatment of injuries. PRP therapy is composed of a high concentration of plasma and platelets, which is 5 to 10 times that of a normal blood specimen. The high concentration of these two components enables faster healing in muscles, fractures, arthritis, tendon injuries, and helps delay surgeries for joint replacement. Are you looking to find the best Yonkers platelet rich plasma (PRP) center? If yes, Juvanni MedSpa is your go-to place.

You require to visit our clinic for an initial evaluation with Dr. Sofia and her team to help determine if you can benefit from PRP. If you have failed traditional treatment methods for tendinopathies, PRP might work for you. After your assessment, Dr. Sofia will then schedule a date for your treatment.
When you visit our clinic, Dr. Sofia and her team will conduct a formal evaluation to help inform on the best treatment plan based on your unique needs. During your review, she will explain the available treatment plans for their benefits and risks. After you have given your consent to proceed with the treatment option of your choice, blood will be drawn from your arm. The blood is then processed in a unit that separates white and red blood cells from the serum. Leukocytes and platelets are then pooled together and collected using a syringe. An “activator” for the PRP is then created using some of the blood drawn from your arm. Local anesthesia is then used to numb your skin and soft tissues before PRP, and the activator can be injected into the part where treatment is required. Several injections can be inserted in the injured tissue based on its size to help optimize PRP placement.
When you come to our clinic, Dr. Sofia will suggest several PRP injections based on how severe and the duration you have been with an injury. The number of injections ranges from 1 to 3. You will also be required to visit our clinic for review and follow up within 2 to 3 weeks after the procedure. During your follow up visits, Dr. Sofia will be able to decide on the number of additional PRP treatments. Dr. Sofia may combine your PRP treatment with exercise or physical therapy to enhance the results.
PRP injections are safe since there is minimal chance for complications and adverse effects after treatment. Since plasma and platelets are removed from your body, there is no risk of disease transmission or rejection. Additionally, PRP has an anti-bacterial property, which is key to protecting infection during and after therapy.
If you are suffering from a tissue injury and are worried that surgery may have an extended downtime, there is good news for you. Visit Juvanni MedSpa today to learn more about Platelet-rich plasma.
