-What is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP Injections)?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) involves the application of concentrated platelets rich in bioactive proteins. This causes the release of growth factors to stimulate cellular regeneration and accelerate tissue repair. PRP was initially used in wound healing, dentistry and the treatment of sports injuries. It is now commonly involved in addressing aesthetic concerns and physiological dysfunction. PRP is one of the most advanced, effective natural treatments for cellular rejuvenation throughout the body.
-How Does PRP Work?
A PRP treatment starts with a simple blood draw and the procedure can be completed within an hour. Your blood is spun in a centrifuge that separates plasma and platelets from the rest of the blood. The plasma, now highly concentrated with rich platelets, is collected in syringes and is injected back into your tissues where it's needed. The growth factors stimulate stem cells to create new, youthful tissue in areas like the face and scalp, and in sex organs, muscles and joints. It aids in repairing old or damaged tissues. It's the essence of regenerative medicine. PRP procedures are minimally invasive and, typically, patients experience very little discomfort with no downtime.
