“Prolo” is short for Proloforate which means to grow or regenerate. That is the effect that Prolotherapy Injections have on tissues. The primary ingredient in Prolotherapy injections used at Advanced Rejuvenation is dextrose. The dextrose triggers an influx of inflammatory cells, initiating the wound-healing system to the specific area. When a stronger inflammatory reaction is desired, additional natural ingredients can be used in the dextrose-based injections. These can include mineral additives, such as zinc or manganese. Another common Prolotherapy additive is hypertonic saline, which increases the inflammatory effect. Lastly, certain hormones, including human growth hormone or testosterone, can be helpful for triggering localized repair of damaged tissue.
We have been using Prolotherapy here at Advanced Rejuvenation since the late 1990’s with great success. Generally 3-6 treatments are necessary for many conditions and more may be needed for more severe cases. Many times we will choose to use Platelet Rich Plasma Injections, or PRP, just because there is a greater regenerative effect and less injections are usually needed. PRP also has scaffolding called fibrin that is contained in your plasma. This can be further processed in what we call honey matrix for an even stronger grafting effect. During your consultation at Advanced Rejuvenation, the doctor will discuss which treatment would be best for your injury.
