PRP - Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy
The Natural Healing Powers of Your own Blood
Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, is an advanced therapy that is being used to heal and regenerate damaged, injured or aging tissues in your body. Platelets are a component of your blood that are known to contain many growth factors. Growth factors activate cellular repair processes in the body. The fact that the platelets are your own, or autologous, means that there is very little risk for any adverse effects. Through a simple blood draw, your platelets are used to activate the healing process.
PRP is used to decrease pain and stimulate the healing of cartilage in joints and promote muscle, tendon and ligament repair. This innovative therapy is also known to generate collagen production for more youthful skin and reduction of wrinkles and sagging. PRP can be used on the scalp in the treatment of hair loss by stimulating dormant hair follicles. There are also applications for male and female sexual enhancement.
Whatever the desired outcome, the treatment is safe, effective and can be completed in about an hour. A patient’s blood is drawn and then put into a centrifuge in order for the platelet rich plasma to be separated. It is then put into syringes and injected back into the patient’s body at the point of injury, pain or intended rejuvenation. The ultimate goal of this therapy is stimulation of the body’s natural ability to heal and repair itself.
This is an amazing opportunity to benefit from a therapy that Hollywood celebrities and professional athletes have utilized in their wellness and treatment programs.
