Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy I PRP Facials

PRP Injections for Pain and Joint Injuries in NJ

Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is more than a passing fad. In fact, a platelet-rich plasma injection can lead to significant pain reduction and healing, particularly for orthopedic conditions. PRP injections are nearly painless in the hands of a trusted phlebotomist and nurse practitioner in New Jersey. Plasma-rich platelet therapy, in conjunction with stem cell therapy, is part of a rising practice called "regenerative therapies". Platelet-rich plasma treatment not only relieves pain, but it can lead to complete healing. Come visit our office in Pompton Lakes and meet trusted medical professionals specializing in PRP treatments. 

More Than Pain Management

Platelet-rich plasma injections are a concentration of platelet-rich protein that’s derived from your own blood. Plasma is the liquid part of your blood and your platelets make it possible for your blood to clot. Your platelets contain hundreds of proteins, called growth factors. Your growth factors promote healing, and PRP treatments have been proven to be a safe and effective method of treating damaged joints and soft tissue, naturally.

Platelet-rich plasma injections are increasingly being used as a non-surgical alternative for orthopedic conditions, injuries and chronic pain management, including:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Chronic lower back pain
  • Injuries to ligaments and muscles
  • Acute, chronic tendon issues
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Tennis elbow
  • Medical collateral ligament (MCL) tears
  • Chronic, acute neck pain
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Plantar fasciitis

These conditions typically are treated with medications, physical therapy or surgery. Many top athletes have credited platelet-rich plasma injections for their faster healing times following injuries that could have previously cost them the season or their careers.

What All the Hype is About:

Through the use of PRP treatments,  your body’s natural healing process can be turbo-charged. There are a couple of ways that platelet-rich plasma treatment is being used for pain and injury:

  • Platelet-rich plasma can be injected directly where it hurts. If you’re suffering from tendonitis, for example, our regenerative medicine specialists may consider a platelet-rich plasma injection. Your pain may persist for a couple of weeks until your natural healing process has the time to prove beneficial.
  • Platelet-rich plasma therapy can also be used to speed up healing following a surgical procedure. If you suffered a complete tear of your rotator cuff and surgery was required, a platelet-rich plasma injection can significantly improve the speed and quality of your recovery.
  • The most popular method of using plasma-rich platelet therapy is in conjunction with stem cell therapy. Platelets and stem cells form your body’s repair system, but age and injury make it difficult for your body to deliver these healing components to where they’re most needed. 


What to Expect During PRP Therapy

WATCH SOME QUICK VIDEOS ABOUT HOW PRP TREATMENT WORKS BELOW

Once the staff at our regenerative medicine office identifies the exact nature of your pain or injury, they draw some blood. Then, your blood is spun in a centrifuge to separate the different components. Once complete, the platelet-rich plasma is extracted. Your platelets are then injected directly into your problem area so they can begin to enhance and promote your body’s natural healing. Our approach to natural healing using PRP treatments can help you get back to living your life with minimal interruption. 

The entire PRP procedure is done on an outpatient basis in the safety and comfort of our New Jersey office. It takes about an hour, which accounts for preparation and recovery. The process relieves pain without the risks of surgery, general anesthesia, hospital stays or prolonged downtime.

Furthermore, since platelet-rich plasma is derived from your own blood, any associated risks are non-existent. Tenderness at the injection sites seem to be the worst side effect, and it typically only lasts a couple of days, at most.

Natural Healing with PRP Doesn’t Happen Overnight

Regenerative medicine is innovative, not instantaneous. It promotes natural, long-term healing of injured tissue and joints. At our NJ regenerative medicine office, we customize a treatment plan for you and help you decide whether you’ll benefit more if platelet-rich plasma injections are used alone or combined with stem cell injections.

You may only require a single treatment, but in some cases, a series of injections may be necessary. You’ll need a follow-up appointment after a couple of weeks so our medical professionals can assess your progress and determine if you will need further treatment.

Lots of Good Candidates for PRP in New Jersey

Age, condition, and activity level are not limiting factors to platelet-rich plasma therapy. However, it is important that you be as up-front and honest as possible with your PRP doctor.

You’re NOT a Good Candidate for PRP if:

  • You’re pregnant
  • You’re anemic
  • You have a blood disorder or are on anticoagulants
  • You have a medical condition, such as an active infection, that may be spread by injection

While PRP treatments have helped thousands of people over the years, they’re still not covered by most insurance plans. However, the PRP procedure in New Jersey is relatively simple, and therefore affordable. Our office will always work with you to review our payment options and plans so you can stop missing out on life.

Vampire Facelifts in New Jersey

Non-Surgical PRP Injection Facials

Non-Surgical PRP Injection Facials, also referred to as "Vampire Facelifts" are a revolutionary, cutting edge, anti-aging procedure for a more radiant complexion. It utilizes a small portion of your own blood to stimulate your body’s production of collagen and elastin, increase circulation, and form new capillaries for a more youthful appearance.

Your blood contains platelets, which contain growth factors that activate and stimulate cellular regeneration within the body. Those growth factors can be isolated and re-injected into the body for rejuvenation.

The therapy helps your body regenerate tissue, encourage collagen production and promote the growth of new cells that naturally tighten and smooth skin for a younger looking complexion.

Non-Surgical PRP Injection Facials at our New Jersey Office Can Be Used to Address and Correct:

  • Thinning skin and volume loss in the face, neck and décolletage
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Circles, bags, puffiness and discoloration of the eye region
  • Vertical lip lines
  • Diminish definition in nasolabial folds
  • Active acne and acne scars
  • Stretch marks


How PRP Injection Facials Work at ActiveLife Regenerative Therapies in Pompton Lakes, NJ:

A minimal amount of your own blood is taken and placed in a centrifuge where the components are separated. The platelet-rich plasma is injected  into areas where volume loss, translucency and/or sagging are taking place. The growth factors begin their work of stimulating collagen production to add volume to the skin and stimulate cells to reproduce for a more youthful looking visage.

Unlike fillers that utilize semi-solid materials to fill in lines and wrinkles, PRP therapy in New Jersey utilizes the power of your own body for a solution that naturally smooths, tightens and refreshes the skin for a complexion that glows and is highly effective for improving the appearance of wrinkles. PRP therapy is an excellent alternative to cosmetic surgery in New Jersey.
