Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a substance that is made from your own blood and used to help heal certain injuries, grow hair and provide aesthetic benefits, among other things. Platelets are blood cells that boost blood clotting and contain certain proteins that stimulate healing. PRP therapy injects aging tissue or inflamed areas with a concentration of platelets to promote faster healing.
How Does It Work?
A small amount of your blood is taken by our trained professional and put into a centrifuge. When the blood spins, the platelets are separated from the other components of the blood. The concentration of platelets is injected into the place where there is a wound or joint pain, or where there are signs of aging and other blemishes. The platelets are far more concentrated than normal blood and this will expedite healing by stimulating the body to grow new, healthy red blood cells.
Benefits of PRP Therapy
We treat various conditions with PRP therapy. When you consult our specialist, you can explain your concerns and learn if PRP therapy is a good option for you. If you are dealing with hair loss, damaged tissue, or signs of aging, we may be able to help with this all-natural treatment option.
What to Expect
When you meet with us, if PRP therapy is the best option for your issues, you will be given instructions on how to prepare. The procedure will be performed in our office. A trained professional will draw a small amount of your blood. As mentioned above, the platelets will be separated from the other components. The PRP is then taken and prepared as an injection. You may be asked to rest the treated area if it is an injury. Otherwise, you can continue your daily activities.
