Your blood consists mainly of liquid plasma, with smaller amounts of solid components like red cells, white cells and platelets. Platelets help to clot blood, and also contain important healing proteins. When you see Dr. Vogt or the SMaRT Institutefor PRP therapy, they extract a vial of your blood and place it in a centrifuge. The centrifuge separates your blood platelets and growth factors from the other blood components. The platelets and growth factors are collected and purified, then reinjected into your designated treatment area. That provides your body with exactly what it needs to stimulate stem cell growth and healing. The whole procedure takes 15-20 minutes, and the restorative benefits begin immediately. As soon as the treatment’s complete, you’re free to return to your normal activities.
There are a variety of patient benefits specific to platelet rich plasma that we provide at our Rockdale location.
With today’s innovative technologies, you’re able to enhance your body’s natural ability to heal your injuries.

Platelet rich plasma can be used in different ways to achieve your therapeutic goals. The SMaRT Institute doctors are expert providers and will discuss your projected outcome prior to beginning treatment. Some of the most popular treatments using PRP therapy include:
No, treatment is not typically painful. The treatment area is numbed topically before any injections are performed. Most patients experience little to no discomfort during the procedure. You may experience some tenderness after treatment but this will quickly fade.
The time until you see your full results will vary from patient to patient, depending on age, injury type, diet and more. Noticeable initial results may take anywhere from 2-12 weeks to appear. The SMaRT Institute doctors may recommend several treatment sessions at predetermined intervals to achieve your desired results. Follow-up treatments may also be beneficial.
The length of PRP results depends on the type of injury and on many other factors. Our doctors will discuss specific expectations with you prior to treatment. If the treatment is for a injury and the result heals the condition, no further treatments are required. If the treatment is for a deterioration issue like osteoarthritis than the result may last 18-24 months before another treatment is necessary.
