PRP (platelet-rich plasma) benefits health and wellness by promoting tissue healing, reducing inflammation, improving skin quality, and enhancing hair growth, by using the body's growth factors and regenerative properties.
What is PRP?
PRP is a regenerative medicine treatment that harnesses your blood's natural healing properties. Platelets contain growth factors that promote tissue repair and regeneration. By concentrating these platelets and injecting them back into the injured area, PRP can help stimulate healing and reduce inflammation. While PRP is still a relatively new treatment, early studies have shown promising results, with many patients experiencing reduced pain and improved function after treatment.
A small amount of your blood is drawn and placed in a centrifuge to create PRP. The centrifuge spins the blood rapidly, separating the platelets and growth factors from the other components. The resulting solution is injected into the patient's injured or damaged tissue. PRP is a safe and minimally invasive treatment option that can independently treat various conditions. Still, it’s often paired with other treatments, such as physical therapy or surgery, to promote healing and improve outcomes.
