PRP treatments have a range of great benefits that can do a lot for you. Below, you can read more about PRP therapy and how it works.
What Is PRP?
PRP is one component of your blood, and it contains powerful elements that are primarily responsible for healing your body. The full name of PRP is platelet-rich plasma, and platelets are a type of disc-like cell. Your platelets are then made up of several other parts, including growth factors, which are different kinds of proteins that regulate cell and tissue repair, and cytokines, which also help with repairing and rejuvenating cells.
What Are PRP Treatments?
PRP treatments are a type of therapy that concentrates a dose of your own PRP in order to achieve healing of all sorts. For this treatment, we will need to draw a small about of your blood. Placing it into a centrifuge, we will be able to separate your PRP from the rest of your blood. Once we have your concentrated PRP, we can then create a serum that we will inject back into your body, targeting the areas of your face need rejuvenation or healing.
The PRP treatment is minimally-invasive and non-surgical, and as we stated above, all it requires of you is a blood sample. There is no downtime associated with PRP therapy, and there is also no risk of any side effects or allergic reactions. Generally, the entire procedure will take about one hour, and it is fully completed right here in our office.
What Can PRP Treatments Do for You?
PRP treatments are used to heal many different kinds of health conditions and issues. Originally, used during brain surgeries, PRP has made its way into the orthopedic and beauty worlds where it is used by doctors to help patients heal.
PRP Can Revitalize Your Skin
PRP treatments can also be used to revitalize your skin. Along with the supercharged healing ability of PRP, this treatment can also help prompt the production of the protein known as collagen. This substance is mainly responsible for giving structure to our skin, and a lack of collagen in what leads to lines and wrinkles. When PRP is injected into the face, it prompts healing as well as collagen production.
