PRP treatments are no fad. PRP has been used for years in the orthopedic world, and now they are used to achieve various benefits and to heal the body in different ways. Below, you can read more about how you can get started with PRP, how it works, and what it can do for you.
PRP: How It Works
PRP treatments work in a simple way: they use the healing power of your own blood in order to achieve results. Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is the part of your blood that is responsible for healing cells and tissue when they are injured or damaged. PRP is full of white blood cells and powerful proteins that are called growth factors. These treatments are able to concentrate your platelet-rich plasma so that it can be injected into the body.
PRP: The Procedure
PRP treatments can be done within an hour, and there is no downtime or ill side effects associated with them. The first step in the procedure is a blood draw. We then place your whole blood sample into a state-of-the-art centrifuge that will break down your blood and separate it into its different parts.
Extracting your PRP, we can then create the injectable serum that will be used to target which areas of your body need healing. These treatments are wholly non-invasive, and consist just of the blood draw and the injections. As we use only your own blood, there is no risk of any allergic reaction. If you suffer from a kind of blood disorder, then you may not make a good candidate for PRP injections.
Benefits of PRP Treatments
PRP injections are safe and effective at treating range of different conditions and issues. The main benefit of all PRP treatments is that they are able to heal the body in a natural way by only using your own blood.
Treating Hair Loss and Thinning
PRP injections can also help treat hair loss and thinning. When PRP is injected into the scalp, it is able to heal hair follicles at the cellular level. Then, that healed hair follicle is able to regrow hair once again.
Achieving Facial Rejuvenation
PRP treatments are also used in the beauty industry as an effective was to rejuvenate skin. Older skin doesn’t produce as much collagen and elastin as it once did. This lack of collagen is one reason why we get fine lines and wrinkles. PRP treatments prompt collagen production in the skin, while also improving skin on the cellular level.
