PRP therapy stands for platelet-rich plasma therapy. This substance is made from components of your own blood. It’s used to treat a variety of conditions and is praised for its healing effects. PRP therapy is delivered through injection to the area targeted for treatment and is a convenient method to stimulate the healing process. At Longevity Regenerative Institute we offer PRP therapy to treat a variety of issues.
About PRP Therapy
Platelet-rich plasma is a component that comes from your own blood. Your blood is placed into a device called a centrifuge that spins it rapidly in order to separate its parts. Platelet-rich plasma is a substance that contains blood plasma, growth factors, and cytokines. These components are incredibly useful in stimulating the healing process, and PRP is used in a variety of medical specialty areas. These include dentistry, dermatology, plastic surgery, and orthopedics.
How it Works
When the blood is separated into its various parts, the most nutrient-rich ones are removed to create platelet-rich plasma. Only a small amount of your blood is required in order to extract these components. The substance is then collected and placed into a syringe. It will be injected directly into the treatment area. Additional sessions may be necessary, depending on your injury. They can be repeated as frequently as needed, up to three per month.
What PRP Therapy Treats
PRP stimulates blood flow, boosts the production of collagen, firms cartilage and enhances stem cell proliferation. It is used in the treatment of a variety of conditions, including pain management for the knee and joints, anti-aging/cosmetic rejuvenation, and hair restoration. If you have been experiencing pain from an injury or arthritis in your joints, PRP therapy may be an alternative to surgery. Physical rehab offers a short-term solution, but PRP can offer a long-term one. PRP therapy is useful in cosmetic rejuvenation because it promotes collagen growth. Vampire facials are a common form of this treatment. Hair loss or thinning can be treated through PRP because the injection stimulates new hair growth and collagen production.
PRP therapy treats a variety of conditions. It can lead to pain relief and rapid healing. Total relief may be gradual, as there will still be a period of healing. However, you can expect some relief after the first or second injection. This treatment is effective for helping people return to their regular lives after injury, along with improving quality of life.
