There is nothing as powerful or effective as your blood’s natural ability to heal your body. The thing is that sometimes your body needs a little extra push to accomplish that healing. But that’s where PRP injections come in. Used for years in different medical fields, PRP injections have been proven safe and effective at helping the body heal. And they can now help you with your own concerns.
What is PRP?
Your blood is actually made up of several different components. One of these components is PRP, or platelet-rich plasma. It is this part of your blood that is primarily responsible for healing the body. PRP accomplishes this task because it is made up of proteins known as growth factors, which can heal and rejuvenate cells and tissue. When PRP is injected into the body in a highly-concentrated dose, the healing power of your blood is magnified.
PRP therapy is a simple, easy, non-surgical treatment that consists only injections. There are no chemicals, fillers, or lasers used in this treatment. The procedure will begin with a blood draw, which we will need in order to extract your PRP. We will accomplish this extraction by using a centrifuge to separate your PRP from the other parts of your blood. Once extracted, we will then be able to create the serum that makes up the injections.
PRP and Injury Repair
One thing that PRP injections can treat are injuries. The many bioactive proteins found in PRP are able to heal tissues and wounds. Essentially, PRP supercharges your healing ability so that you heal faster. The injections can be used to help treat ligament injuries, plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff tears, sprains, tears, arthritis, and other conditions.
PRP and Hair Restoration
PRP injections can also be used to help hair loss and thinning. It accomplishes this by getting at the cause of most hair loss: aged or malfunctioning hair follicles. The injections can target areas of the scalp that are experiencing thinning or balding. And once injected, the PRP will heal your hair follicles so that they can begin to produce your own, natural hair once again.
