The simple, all-natural route is the best way to go, especially when it comes to rejuvenating your body. PRP treatments have been proven safe and effective at healing a number of different issues and conditions. Below, you can learn more about PRP rejuvenation and what it can do for you.
What is PRP and How Does It Work?
Since its inception, PRP therapy has helped countless people heal their bodies. PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is a part of the blood that contains hundreds of proteins known as growth factors as well as white blood cells. In essence, growth factors are responsible for controlling cell activities, and as such, these proteins direct cells to heal tissue and injuries in the body.
PRP rejuvenation works by injecting back into the body a concentrated dose of PRP to supercharge your healing ability. The procedure is relatively simple and completely non-invasive. We will first begin with a routine blood draw. After placing your blood sample into a centrifuge and separating out the different components of your blood, we will extract your PRP and create an injectable serum. PRP treatments are safe, and there is no risk of any allergic reactions, as we use nothing other than your own blood. There is also no downtime with any kind of PRP treatment.
What Can PRP Treatments Do For You?
PRP has a long history of being used in the medical field. In the beginning, PRP was actually used during open heart surgeries and then made its way into the orthopedics world after it was discovering that PRP speeds up healing. Now, PRP treatments are used to help heal in the body in several different ways.
First, PRP treatments can be used to rejuvenate facial skin. As we age, our skin’s production of collagen and elastin slows down. PRP treatments are able to jumpstart healing in a way that prompts your skin to begin producing collagen once again. PRP treatments can help reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, and restore lost facial volume.
Next, PRP treatments are used to help regrow hair. Hair loss and thinning have numerous causes, but the common factor is malfunctioning or damaged hair follicles. When PRP is injected into the scalp, it heals those hair follicles so that they we begin producing hair as they once did.
