Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy promotes the body’s natural repair process to heal injuries. In addition to blood clotting properties, platelets are also natural sources of growth factors, proteins, and other materials that help repair degenerative or injured tissue.
PRP therapy uses your own concentrated platelets. By stimulating and enhancing the body’s own healing response, it is used to treat injuries, inflammation, and some chronic degenerative conditions. PRP therapy is a great option for those who want to heal the source of pain rather than simply masking the symptoms.
Receiving PRP - PRP is derived from your own blood. After the blood is drawn, it is spun in a centrifuge, such as the one in the picture above, until is separates into layers. The "golden" area of the sample tube is the PRP. After applying local anesthetic (numbing), PRP is injected into the areas in need of healing.
Benefits of PRP include:
- Safety - it has nearly no risk of adverse reactions PRP uses your own cells
- Cost-Effectiveness - PRP therapy is significantly less expensive than using cells from a donor
- Surgery Free - You can walk out of the procedure able to resume light daily activity while your healing begins immediately

Fascial Hydration is the process of using certain anti-inflammatory growth factors found in certain cells to hydrate and re-contour damaged tissue in the fascia. The fascia is a thin casing of connective tissue that surrounds and holds organs, blood vessels, nerves and muscles where they belong. Like the skin, fascia has nerves that can become entrapped in damaged tissue. When this tissue becomes dry and fibrous, it can cause acute pain referred from the entrapped nerve.
Receiving Fascial Hydration Therapy - After applying local anesthetic (numbing), Vessel Longevity uses anti-inflammatory growth factors and sterile water to rehydrate and recontour the fascia in order to release trapped nerves and reestablish proper fluid exchange.
Benefits of Fascial Hydration Therapy:
- Acute Nerve Pain - Releasing trapped nerves restores pain free movement in the absence of other mechanical issues
- Surgery Free - You can walk out of the procedure able to resume light daily activity
Some of these Therapies are investigational
