What is Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy?
PRP, or 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 body’s regenerative process by harvesting the growth factors that platelets are known to contain. A patient has their blood drawn and it is then spun down; the concentrated platelets and growth factors are then used by re-injecting them into a targeted area to stimulate the body’s own regenerative abilities to heal itself. This has been a very successful modality in the treatment of hair loss, acne, chronic orthopedic injuries such as tendinitis, ligament sprains, knee meniscus repair, arthritis, joint sprains, intra-articular injuries, chronic neck, back, and spinal injuries, cosmetic benefits such as fine wrinkles, nasolabial folds, scar revision, bags and circles under the eyes, lips, and aging atrophy to the back of the hands. One significant benefit to PRP is that you are using your body’s own natural process, so there is virtually no chance of rejection or allergic reaction.
The result of the treatment is the natural stimulation of growth factors which is injected into the treated area. There are no side effects, but you can experience some minor swelling or pain near the injection sight. Platelet Rich Plasma has gained national attention recently due to the use by champion football players and professional golfers. This process is quick, essentially painless and uses your natural healing powers without surgery or drugs.
Use your own platelets to regenerate tissues naturally; this is the precursor to stem-cell therapy.
