THE GOAL OF THIS THERAPY IS INTENTIONAL, TARGETED INFLAMMATION AT A POINT OF INJURY OR DESIRED AREA OF REPAIR.
USE YOUR OWN BLOOD TO HEAL TISSUE AND STIMULATE GROWTH
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is an advanced treatment physicians have used to help repair damaged or injured tissues in your body. This minimally invasive procedure helps initiate your system’s regenerative process by utilizing the growth factors that platelets are known to contain. PRP therapy is autologous, meaning it is derived from the patient, therefore reducing the risk of rejection or allergic reaction.
The result of the treatment is the natural stimulation of growth factors moving towards the treated area. There are no known side effects of PRP, although you may occasionally experience minor swelling or pain near the injection points for a short period of time.
THE RESULT IS STIMULATION OF THE BODY’S NATURAL ABILITY TO HEAL AND CONSEQUENTIAL REPAIR.
WHAT IS PLATELET RICH PLASMA
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy is in the category of regenerative therapies that is autologous, meaning that blood is utilized from your own body. Blood contains components called platelets and platelets contain growth factors. Growth factors activate and stimulate cellular regeneration in the body.
PRP therapy is effective in the skin for overall rejuvenation and healing, in the joints for pain relief and the repair of soft tissue damage and in the scalp to awaken dormant follicles and stimulate hair growth. When released, growth factors encourage collagen production and the formation of new capillaries.
PRP has gained national media attention recently due to recognition in efficacy by members of the NFL, NBA, PGA, NHL and MLS. The treatment is quick, minimally invasive and essentially painless. PRP harnesses the body’s natural healing abilities without surgery or drugs.
The treatment is simple and can be completed within an hour. A minimal amount of blood is taken from the patient and then placed in a centrifuge for separation. The Platelet Rich Plasma is segmented and transferred to a syringe. PRP is golden in color, viscous and easily injected without pain or downtime.
Physicians are using PRP in combination with micro-channeling therapy to treat:
• Fine lines and wrinkles
• Circles, bags and discoloration around eyes
• Vertical lip lines
• Nasolabial folds
• Active acne and acne scars
• Stretch marks
• Back of hands
• Epidermal thinning and volume loss in the
face, neck and décolleté
There are many benefits of using PRP treatments to promote healing for hair growth. Highly concentrated growth factors in the form of platelets have been shown to generate new hair growth and thicken thinning hair.
As hair follicles survive on the nutrition they get from the blood supply, the introduction of platelets by administering PRP in the area of damaged hair follicles will amplify the body’s naturally occurring wound healing mechanism. This leads to healthier hair follicles or hair roots, resulting in improved hair restoration.
