Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy uses your own concentrated platelets and growth factors from your own blood to stimulate bone growth and heal tissue. PRP is commonly used to improve sports injuries by decreasing inflammation and pain. Research shows that PRP helps to heal tendon and ligament injuries, muscle tears and cartilage damage from arthritis, trauma and aging.

Dr. Silva will inject your shoulders and knees to improve your chronic pain and is a safer option than cortisone injections.

PRP Hair and Scalp

Therapy for hair loss

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is derived from the patient’s own blood serum. The patient’s blood is placed in a centrifuge where each part of the blood is separated. The platelet rich plasma is isolated and used to inject into the patient’s scalp. This PRP is rich in growth factors and new hair follicle stimulating cells. PRP has long been used for enhanced wound healing and joint restoration but has now been found to actually stimulate new hair growth.

Non-surgically, several studies have shown increased hair density at 4 months lasting for approximately 11 months. Usually injections are done 3 times, the second one after 4 weeks and the third injection 8 – 12 weeks from the first injection. Maintenance injections are done once to twice a year. We have pharmaceutical topical solutions and medical grade supplements that also help to grow and maintain hair. Dr. Melinda Silva also optimizes hormone therapies to grow and very importantly, maintain hair growth.

Micro Needling

Reduce the signs of aging

Microneedling is also referred to as Collagen Induction Therapy, using tiny short needles to puncture skin superficially to help stimulate collagen and elastin. The skin is prepped and numbed with local anesthetic so it is a painless procedure. Research has shown that microneedling is a safe and therapeutic option for the treatment of scars and wrinkles. Microneedling has also been shown to improve stretch marks, tighten the skin, minimize pore size and reduce hyperpigmentation.
