Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP)

Conveniently located to serve the areas of Beverly Hills and Los Angeles

The human body is a marvel of adaptation. It matures, strengthens, and evolves day by day and year by year. It can even patch its own wounds, thanks to the presence of platelets.

The blood coursing through your veins holds the key to regeneration and health maintenance. Dr. Christopher Asandra is an expert in the field of endogenous wellness. Endogenous means that Dr. Asandra harvests healing materials from the patient’s own body to provide medical solutions without the need for toxic drugs and invasive surgeries. Among the most promising approaches to endogenous healthcare: platelet-rich plasma (PRP).

PRP is a new and proven approach to tackle some of the most frustrating and lingering problems we have. Most importantly, it’s done naturally, using the very best your own body has to offer.

Before & After Photos

What Is PRP?

PRP is a concentrated serum derived from your own blood. The acronym stands for platelet-rich plasma. Platelets get their name from their signature shape; they are flat and round like dinner plates. This shape allows platelets to form a cohesive mesh and block the site of a wound or scrape. Clotting is, in fact, the most well known function of platelets.

There is, however, a treasure trove of untapped potential hiding in your platelets. In addition to clotting, platelets communicate with one another through chemical signals.[1] By coordinating their functions with each other, platelets organize themselves into a healing machine. They are like the first responders in your blood, ready to rush to the scene and heroically heal your damaged or deflated tissue.

PRP Therapy 

PRP Therapy

By isolating the platelets in your blood, Dr. Asandra can put them to amazing use replenishing aging skin and repairing damaged tissue. This groundbreaking and noninvasive therapy utilizes and enhances the healing properties of your body’s very own platelet cells containing hundreds of proteins called growth factors. Dr. Asandra begins by drawing a vial of your blood and subsequently processes it using the method of centrifugation (spinning) to separate the red blood cells. The next phase is a second centrifugation to concentrate platelets, resulting in platelet-rich plasma that can contain growth factors that are 5 to 10 times greater than average. In fact, “normal blood” contains roughly 6% platelets, while PRP contains as much as 94%.

For this reason, PRP is an ideal therapy for healing. Such rich concentrations of growth factors initiate and enhance physiological processes that contribute to tissue recovery and overall rejuvenation once injected into the desired site. Dr. Asandra harnesses the power of PRP, through applications such as skin rejuvenation, hair restoration, joint and muscle repair, and even sexual enhancement.

Benefits of PRP Therapy

As mentioned earlier, the platelets in our blood form an epic mode of communication. As they speak to one another, they create a vibrant network of healing within the body. The only problem: platelets are naturally localized in whichever part of the anatomy where they are currently trapped.

Dr. Asandra releases platelets from their confines, purifies and amplifies their viability, and unleashes their potential in the area where they are most needed. Patients benefit from Dr. Asandra’s comprehensive approach to platelet allocation and relocation. Your plasma already knows how to heal you; it just needs a boost to maximize its efficiency.

Procedure

PRP therapy is customized to each patient’s situation. It generally begins with a blood draw so the AsandraMD team can isolate your platelets. From there, the next steps are up to you. After all, you are the captain on your journey to self-improvement and we are your skilled, knowledgeable copilots. 

Once the platelets in your sample are purified and amplified, they are ready for reinsertion. Dr. Asandra will pinpoint the placement of your PRP serum for maximum effectiveness. 

Recovery

The recovery process depends on the extent of your treatment. The area being healed may experience redness and swelling as your own plasma is injected. Dr. Asandra may suggest ice packs and topical creams to alleviate any minor discomfort.

Results

The rewards of PRP therapy are truly transformative. Case in point: one extensive study proved that platelet treatment was instrumental in treating patients with carpal tunnel syndrome.[2] Participants in the study were evaluated before PRP therapy and at 1, 3, and 6 month intervals after receiving platelet care. Patients indicated that their pain was significantly reduced and their disability was lessened as a result of platelet-rich plasma. 

On a local level, we are thrilled to report that our clients are happy and healthy due to Dr. Asandra’s revolutionary methods. Take a look at our rave reviews to see how we prioritize patient satisfaction.
