Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections have become quite popular in recent years. They are used in the treatment of various conditions, including skin conditions, hair loss, and injuries. PRP treatment is based on the body’s self-healing ability and involves using the patient’s own blood cells to accelerate healing in target areas of the body. Here’s everything you need to know about how PRP can be beneficial to you.
What Is PRP?
To prepare PRP, a blood sample is taken from the patients and drawn into tubes. This is then run in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets. The activated platelets are injected directly into the target area of the body. This triggers the release of growth factors that boosts the number of reparative cells produced in that area of the body.
How Does PRP Work?
When used for skin rejuvenation, PRP is injected into the targeted area of the skin. This triggers the release of collagen in that area of the body and aids the regeneration of tissues. The result is smoother and tighter skin. PRP is used to give the skin a regenerated look and make you look younger. Compared to other forms of injection skin treatment, PRP is natural, minimally invasive and there’s little to no risk of allergic reaction. It can be used to treat nearly any area of the body with minimal risk of side effects.
PRP for Skin Rejuvenation
PRP may also be used for treating a wide range of musculoskeletal injuries. It is typically used for athletes to speed up recovery from tendon injuries and other sports injuries that often take time to heal. Taking PRP injection can reduce recovery time. PRP injection also has anti-inflammatory properties and helps to reduce pain without the side effects associated with conventional pain medications like opioids.
PRP for Injury Treatment
PRP may also be used for treating a wide range of musculoskeletal injuries. It is typically used for athletes to speed up recovery from tendon injuries and other sports injuries that often take time to heal since taking PRP injection can reduce recovery time. PRP injection also has anti-inflammatory properties and helps to reduce pain without the side effects associated with conventional pain medications like opioids. This makes PRP treatment perfect for those experiencing arthritis-related pain, and other muscle or joint pain.
PRP for Hair Restoration
PRP consists of a large number of proteins and growth factor mediums. Due to its rich content of tissue repairing components, PRP can be successfully administered to select cases of hair loss.
PRP with Microneedling
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) stimulates collagen and can completely transform your face. We’ll use your own PRP and a micro-needling device to deliver outstanding results. Microneedling with PRP is a cosmetic treatment that stimulates collagen production by rolling fine needles over the skin and applying platelets, which are one of the components of blood. PRP contains proteins, including growth factors and cytokines. These proteins help skin tissue repair itself.
