Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatments

What is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)?

PRP, or Platelet Rich Plasma treatment is a cutting-edge approach to help you recover from injuries, alleviate pain, rejuvenate sexual health, hair and skin, and promote overall wellness. 

By utilizing your body’s own healing properties to accelerate tissue repair and regeneration, PRP can be a safe and effective natural alternative to surgeries and other invasive procedures. 

Platelet-Rich Plasma involves extracting a small sample from your blood, which is then processed to concentrate the platelets, activated through Forum Health’s unique process, and made available for use. 

Platelets are rich in growth factors and other bioactive proteins that play a crucial role in tissue repair and regeneration. Once the platelets are concentrated and activated, they are applied topically or injected into the targeted area of the body, where they stimulate the natural healing process.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

The Benefits of Getting a Platelet-Rich Plasma Treatment:

Improved Tissue Healing

Studies show that using PRP after surgeries helps to reduce healing time. Because PRP contains large amounts of blood-derived growth factors, the treatment helps to heal damaged tissue naturally. 

These growth factors can help stimulate collagen production and new vessel growth, and increase the amount of cell growth.

Pain Relief & Improved Joint Function

Platelets provide essential growth factors and other proteins that regulate cell division, stimulate tissue regeneration, and promote healing. PRP has shown to be effective in reducing pain, improving joint function, reversing degeneration from osteoarthritis, and slowing, halting, or repairing damage to cartilage.

PRP Procedure

Blood sample collection

The first step is to collect a small amount of blood. This is usually done from a vein in the arm, like a blood test.

Usually, 30-60mL of blood will be taken for PRP injections.

Centrifugation to separate PRP from blood

The blood that has been collected is then placed in a centrifuge, a machine that spins rapidly to separate the platelet-rich plasma from other blood components.

Topical anesthesia at injection site

Depending on what the PRP is used for, your doctor may offer you topical numbing to make the procedure as comfortable as possible.

For example, if you are using PRP for penis enlargement, or undergoing PRP vaginal rejuvenation, you may be offered topical anesthetic.

Injection or application of PRP to target area

The concentrated platelet-rich plasma is collected and prepared for injection or topical application through microchannels created with a micro-needling tool.

Side Effects of PRP Treatment

Since PRP treatment involves using your own blood, there is a low risk of allergic reaction or infectious disease spread, and they are generally considered as being a very safe procedure. 

There are some minor risks involving pain or discomfort where the PRP is injected or applied, some swelling or bruising, and infection if the procedure has not been performed in a sterile environment.

“PRP is relatively noninvasive, has a well-established safety profile, and patient satisfaction is often high”


If you’re interested in exploring PRP injections, it’s essential to have a thorough discussion with your healthcare provider to understand the potential benefits and risks.


*Research into PRP’s diverse applications is rapidly expanding and shows encouraging results. While the FDA has cleared the equipment for PRP preparation and the injection process itself,  most uses of PRP remain classified as investigational. Because PRP comes from your own blood, it’s not categorized as a drug. FDA clearance allows doctors the flexibility to recommend and use PRP when they deem it beneficial for their patient. However, as it lacks full FDA approval, insurance companies may not cover the cost of PRP treatments.

PRP Treatment FAQs

The effects of PRP are often not permanent and vary depending on the condition being treated.

Usually, however, the treatment effects last a few months. Repeat treatments are often recommended to maintain or enhance results.

This depends on the procedure, how many benefits you experience from it, and the opinion of your doctor. 


While some conditions benefit from a single treatment, most will need repeat treatments over the course of a few weeks, or months, to see maximum results

PRP injections or applications are not painful. If you have had a blood test and injections, then that is the level of pain you can expect.

Some clinicians will offer to give you local anesthetic in sensitive areas or if you require numerous treatments. If you are uncomfortable with needles, you can discuss this option with your physician.

PRP takes the cells from your blood responsible for clotting and healing and injects or applies them right where your body needs them most. PRP contains growth factors to help increase the number of regeneration cells, stimulate collagen production, and have anti-inflammatory effects.
