What Are PRP Injections?

Miami, FL board-certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Jeffrey LaGrasso now offers his patients platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections at his office. Using PRP taken from the patient's own blood (red and white cells plus platelets), it is applied via injection to joints with acute or chronic injuries. The growth factors in the blood are proteins that can help heal injuries more quickly. If you would like to learn more about how Dr. LaGrasso can apply PRP to your joints so that it can help repair an injury or decrease inflammation in your joints, call and schedule a consultation with him at your earliest convenience.

What Are the Benefits of PRP Injections?

PRP injections can be used to alleviate chronic and acute pain in the joints. These results can be achieved quickly and in a minimally invasive manner, making it an incredibly easy treatment to fit into even the busiest of schedules. Patients have found it to be an incredibly useful way to restore function to their joints, allowing them to leave a comfortable and painless life.

Am I a Candidate for PRP Injections?

The best candidates for PRP are patients that have tried other medications, physical therapy, surgery, and other methods of recovering from sprains, injuries, and chronic conditions. These patients may want to try PRP to heal the area more quickly and improve their health. If you have pain in your joints and are unhappy with your current form of treatment, it is very likely that you could be a great candidate for PRP injections. The procedure's use of the body's own plasma ensures there are no adverse reactions to the injections.

How Are PRP Injections Performed?

A small amount of blood will be taken from the patient and prepared into a PRP serum through centrifugation, and it will separate the platelets from other blood cells. Once the PRP is made, it can be injected into the site of the injury. This process can take a few hours to complete.

What Can I Expect from PRP Injections?

Patients may have mild redness in the treated area for up to 5 days. Some patients may notice other mild reactions, including burning, tightness, and skin flaking. Patients will be able to resume their normal activities immediately after their treatment, but heavy activity and exercise should be avoided for at least 24 hours. 



We use PRP injections in the joints to help with regeneration with the additional concentration of growth factors placed at the site of inflammation or injury.


No. We provide PRP for patients even if they have not had surgery on the injured area. Keep in mind, we can also use PRP for patients after they have had surgery on a joint to aid in the healing process.

How much do prp injections cost?

The precise cost of prp injections varies from one patient to another. This is because each injection is specific to the patient's own unique needs and goals. During your consultation, we'll be able to assess your pain and create a treatment plan that is tailored to your unique situation. At this point, we'll have a better idea of the overall cost of the treatment.

How long will my results last after PRP therapy?

The longevity of your results after PRP therapy can vary, but most patients experience pain relief that lasts 6 – 12 months. In some cases, these improvements extend longer, depending on your health and how your body responds to the treatment. The goal of PRP therapy is to promote lasting healing, so while you might notice gradual improvement, it builds up over time for more sustained relief.

Are PRP injections painful?

Most patients at our Miami, FL office report little to no discomfort during their PRP injections. To help manage any potential pain, we can numb the area with a local anesthetic, so you should feel a bit of pressure or a quick pinch at most. Afterward, you might have some tenderness or swelling, but this should pass within a few days. We strive to keep patients comfortable throughout the process.

How many PRP treatments will I need?

The answer to this can vary from patient to patient. Some individuals notice significant improvements in pain and mobility after a single PRP treatment, but we typically recommend a series of injections spaced several weeks apart. Everyone's body reacts differently, so we tailor the treatment plan to fit your specific situation, aiming to get you the best results possible.
