Platelet-rich Plasma Therapy is a natural treatment that uses the body’s own growth factors to stimulate stem cells for tissue regeneration. Growth factors are naturally occurring proteins in your body that stimulate healing. By using platelet-rich plasma, we can encourage the body to heal itself, helping patients recover from a variety of health issues they may be experiencing related to orthopedics, hair restoration, aesthetics and sexual wellness.
PRP is a minimally invasive medical procedure that involves injecting a concentrated form of the patient’s own blood platelets into a treatment area.
Because platelets contain various growth factors, treatment can help promote healing and effectively support regeneration throughout the body, including:
Platelets are found in your blood and support healing after injury or trauma. When the body is injured, it triggers the release of growth factors, including platelets, to aid in clotting.
PRP is used in regenerative medicine to repair and rejuvenate damaged tissue, stimulating the natural healing power of the human body. Because it is derived from the patient’s own blood, PRP therapy is natural, well-tolerated, safe, and often helps people achieve positive results after just one treatment.
Excitingly, PRP treatments can often support healing and improvement in conditions that would otherwise require surgery. So, before going under the knife, be sure to consult with a ViveWell physician to understand how PRP may be able to help.
ViveWell, along with several other advanced interventional orthopedic clinics, have found tremendous success using ozone-activated PRP. Activating PRP before it is injected enhances the effectiveness, causing increased platelet growth factors, superior tissue regeneration and pain reduction.
ViveWell offers prolozone, a type of regenerative prolotherapy, that injects small doses of ozone gas into a treatment area to boost healing. Ozone increases oxygen uptake, reduces inflammation and improves circulation by stimulating the body’s natural healing abilities to speed up recovery. Prolozone is often combined with PRP to increase tissue response to the PRP’s growth factors. In fact, studies show that patients who receive ozone treatment in conjunction with PRP heal faster and experience less pain after the procedure compared to PRP alone.

But the benefits don’t stop there. For exponential healing benefits, many patients choose to “stack” regenerative treatments that can safely be used together in the same procedure. For example, in addition to pretreating an area with prolozone then adding PRP, we can often add some peptides and/or exosomes to enhance regeneration.
PRP Therapy is indicated for slow-healing injuries, such as knee injuries, joint injuries, arthritis, osteoarthritis, tendinitis, meniscus tears, ligament and muscle trauma.

Along with medical consultation and laboratory testing, PRP is an effective treatment for alopecia, thinning hair, COVID-related hair loss, premature baldness, or stimulating new hair growth following hair transplant surgery.

PRP is a minimally invasive aesthetic treatment that repairs skin damage, stimulates healing, promotes collagen production and restores your beautiful radiance. We see impressive results with several safe, in-office procedures including PRP.
PRP Face Lift — From filling in lines, lips and wrinkles to restoring facial volume, this non-surgical facelift will give you natural-looking results you’ll love, with no down-time.
PRP Breast Lift — Perk up your breasts without surgery. ViveWell providers inject PRP to improve skin texture and reduce sagging to create younger, softer skin and a thicker, more voluminous bust.
Initial effects are usually because of volume increase and swelling from the injections. We anticipate full benefits approximately three months after the procedure. In this time, the growth factors and circulation to the treatment area increase to tighten and shape the skin.

Platelet-rich Fibrin Matrix (PRFM) is the next level of PRP. Calcium chloride is added to the platelet-rich plasma to create PRFM, which is then injected like a filler. PRFM is frequently used in aesthetics to gain longer-lasting results. The benefits of PRFM include a more youthful appearance, reduction of visible scars and rejuvenated skin.
PRP is effective for improving erectile dysfunction, restoring intimate sensation for both men and women, and reversing laxity due to aging. It can also support healing from hormonal imbalance and multiple vaginal births.
We offer a range of services to support male and female health. Click below to learn more.
PRP and PRFM are minimally invasive in-office procedures performed in 4 steps.
You can expect to be in the office for about an hour or so, after which you can return to work or resume regular activity. Although PRP therapy is well-tolerated and has a low risk of adverse effects, some people experience redness, tenderness, irritation and mild bruising at the injection site.
Ozone-activated PRP delivers results quickly, and the benefits increase over time.
Enhanced platelet plasma injections are naturally abundant in the growth factors necessary for healing. Prior to injection, the plasma is further activated with ozone to stimulate a stronger healing response.
Combine and save — Each PRP kit may be used up to 3 times on the same patient in the same day.
To maximize savings, book multiple injections for yourself for the same visit.
