PRP Therapy, or Platelet-rich plasma therapy, uses the regenerative properties within your own blood to stimulate rejuvenation, regrowth, skin tightening and other growth factors that are lacking in other areas of your body.
It can be used to stimulate hair growth, give you younger looking skin and improve certain health symptoms and conditions.
PRP is described as autologous blood with high blood platelet concentrations above the normal levels. It has at least seven growth factors and is extracted directly from the patient’s own blood (usually taken from the adipose/fat tissue or bone marrow) and then injected into the affected area to jumpstart the body’s natural healing process. Since PRP contains growth factors that restore damaged tissues, it works by triggering collagen and elastin production and other regenerative processes.
As a type of proliferation therapy, PRP treatment involves a series of injections that are intended to help with the formation of new blood vessels and the tightening, repairing or strengthening of damaged tissues.
Human blood has the following components: red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, and plasma. Platelets form the basic building block for PRP therapy. Platelets have more than 1,500 growth factors as well as special proteins that facilitate tissue repair. The platelets trigger healing and rejuvenation.
PRP is an effective, safe, and innovative treatment for most musculoskeletal conditions. The procedure involves injecting the patient’s own blood platelets into the treatment area to trigger the body’s own natural healing process. Some of the benefits of this procedure compared to other treatment options include reduced downtime and optimum outcomes.
