Celebrities use PRP for a variety of injuries to accelerate healing and also for collagen induction to reduce signs of aging. At Qvita Health & Wellness, Peggy Demetriou, ARNP, FNP-BC, offers regenerative therapies that help patients with beleaguered joints and tendons, as well as cosmetic concerns.

Your blood contains four ingredients:
Your platelets are largely responsible for clotting, but they also contain hundreds of growth factors, or proteins, that promote regeneration and healing.
Qvita Health & Wellness uses DrPRP® to create a concentrate of platelets from your own blood using a special centrifuge. Once the platelets are isolated, they’re mixed back in with your plasma and re-injected into areas where your soft tissue can use a healing or regenerative boost. The platelets release growth factors that signal your body to send in additional resources to help rebuild and repair the tissue.
