Utah’s Leading Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Surgeons

Are you looking for a natural way to rejuvenate your skin? PRP injections may be the solution you've been searching for. Our clinic specializes in providing safe and effective PRP treatments that can help you achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance. PRP, or Platelet-Rich Plasma, is a natural substance that is derived from your own blood and contains growth factors that stimulate cell growth and regeneration. When injected into the skin, PRP can help to improve skin texture and tone, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a substance that is derived from a person's own blood and contains a high concentration of platelets, which are small cells that are important for blood clotting and healing. The process of creating PRP involves drawing a small amount of the patient's blood and then using a centrifuge to separate the platelets from other components of the blood.

Who Is An Ideal Candidate For Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection therapy is a non-surgical treatment option that uses a patient's own blood plasma to promote natural healing and tissue regeneration. A good candidate for PRP injection treatment is typically an individual who is seeking a natural and minimally invasive treatment option for a variety of conditions, including hair loss, joint pain, and skin rejuvenation. PRP injection therapy is safe and suitable for most healthy adults, and there is no risk of rejection or allergic reaction since the treatment uses the patient's own blood. However, individuals who have certain medical conditions, such as blood disorders or cancer, may not be suitable candidates for PRP injection treatment. Additionally, a consultation with a qualified provider is necessary to determine if PRP injection therapy is the right treatment option for an individual's specific concerns and goals.


First, the patient's blood is drawn and placed in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma from the rest of the blood components. The area to be treated is then cleaned and prepped with a local anesthetic. The PRP is then injected into the targeted area using a fine needle. The procedure typically takes about 30 minutes to an hour to complete, and patients can usually return to their normal activities immediately following the treatment. After the treatment, patients may experience some mild swelling, bruising, or discomfort at the injection site, but these side effects typically subside within a few days. Patients may require multiple treatments spaced several weeks apart to achieve optimal results.


The recovery process from a PRP injection is generally mild and does not require significant downtime. Patients may experience some mild swelling, bruising, or discomfort at the injection site, but these side effects typically subside within a few days. Patients are usually able to return to their normal activities immediately after the treatment, but it is recommended to avoid vigorous physical activity or sun exposure for a few days following the treatment. Patients may notice some improvement in their symptoms or concerns immediately after the treatment, but it can take several weeks to several months to see the full effects of the treatment. Patients may require multiple treatments spaced several weeks apart to achieve optimal results, and the duration of the results can vary depending on the individual's response to the treatment and the condition being treated. It is important to follow any aftercare instructions provided by the healthcare provider to ensure proper healing and optimal results.
