Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections | Culver City
Looking for an innovative treatment to rehabilitate wounds or sports related injuries? PRP or Platelet-Rich-Plasma Therapy at the True Jewel Cosmetic Center is effective at healing wounds and more. First, our clinicians take a sample of the patient’s blood and place it into a centrifuge to remove protein-rich Plasma which also contains high amounts of red and white blood cells. Next, the plasma is injected back into the body where needed to promote healing. We also use this incredible method for microneedling and hair growth as it is a very effective way of treating various conditions.

At the True Jewel Cosmetic Center, we use PRP injections to help heal a number of injuries from tendonitis, torn tendons, to muscle and joint injuries, arthritis pain, and more. PRP Injections can also be used as a form of a cosmetic treatment, where patients see results with healthy, glowing skin in the areas of injection.
Results can last up to a whole year however it may take a few weeks for pain to be relieved in the area treated. Cosmetic results can be seen as soon as 1 week from the treatment.
