Platelet-Rich Plasma harnesses the body’s healing powers for growth and rejuvenation.
Platelet-rich Plasma is derived by taking a small sample of our patient’s blood. The sample is then placed in the centrifuge and spun very rapidly. The centrifuge separates the red blood cells from the plasma, which is rich in platelets and other growth factors and proteins. The plasma is then injected or micro-needled into the desired treatment area. It can be used alone or combined with another treatment that we offer like AmnioDry.
When your cells are injured, a series of peptides notify your brain of the damage. Then, proteins remove the damaged cells, which trigger the fibroblast to make new collagen and allow the wound to heal.
Three signals must fire before fibroblast activation and healing begins. PRP is full of the MAP protein that triggers the removal of dead cells and begins healing and repairing the damaged ones. At the same time, your body is also producing collagen and elastin which are the building blocks of skin, muscles, ligaments, hair, and tendons.
At Aspire, our PRP treatments include:
How does PRP work?
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections are an effective way to increase your body’s own healing and growth processes. PRP is derived from the patient’s own blood that has a high concentration of growth factors & MAP proteins that have anti-inflammatory and regenerative properties. These growth factors go to the site of an injury and speed up the healing process by recognizing what the body needs and producing it. Read more about the aesthetic uses for PRP injections.
At Aspire, we use PRP for aesthetic purposes like to tighten and firm sagging skin, reduce dark circles around the eyes (tear troughs), activate dormant hair follicles into an active growth phase on the scalp. There are practical applications to reduce stress incontinence and for sexual rejuvenation for both men and women.

Adding AmnioDry to PRP treatments guarantees the best possible outcome. AmnioDry is a supplement that contains 5,122 more growth factors and proteins than traditional PRP. It has a nerve growth factor that is not in PRP and is important in sexual rejuvenation. AmnioDry is rich in Extracellular Matrix Proteins (ECM) which create structure and support for surrounding cells. Think of the ECM as a net capturing all of the MAP Protein and growth factors and holding them in the intended area. ECM is not only one of the building blocks of our cells but is also important for cell communication that allows cells to function properly.
AmnioDry is completely immune privileged (meaning that is cannot be rejected by the body), has zero inflammation effects, and is non-expanding ( meaning that it cannot regenerate bad cells or tumors). This technology was first used in 1912 at Johns Hopkins for wound healing treatments.
Liquid Gold PRP & Genius PRP
The type centrifuge used to separate the red blood cells from the plasma determines the concentration of platelets. The more powerful the centrifuge, the higher the concentration of platelets. The color of PRP is the number one indicator of how concentrated in platelets the PRP is. Highly concentrated PRP is orange and standard PRP is gold (often called Liquid Gold). The concentration of platelets factors into the results each patient gets from their treatment.
Liquid Gold PRP is the most common type of PRP treatment available on the market (locally and nationally). This PRP contains about 2,500 to 3,500 platelets.
Genius PSP is the most concentrated treatment available in the nation and Aspire is one of the only offices in Colorado that offers it. Genius PRP. It is 400 times more concentrated in platelets than Liquid Gold and contains 1 million platelets. Genius PRP is the most effective PRP treatment that we office because of its high concentration.
