All the Benefits of PRP Therapy
Have you heard of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) before? If you haven’t, you’re missing out! As we age, our skin begins to become more relaxed and saggy. PRP can rejuvenate the skin from the inside out, and it can all be done with your own blood, so there is no rejection or allergic reactions to be concerned about. PRP can be used for many different purposes, and the benefits are endless.
What Is PRP Therapy?
PRP is platelet-rich plasma. It is the process of removing and harvesting your own blood, putting it through a centrifuge to separate the growth factors and platelet-rich plasma from the red blood cells, and then injecting it in the treatment area on your body. That’s it! This treatment can be completed in as little as one hour per treatment area, and it is virtually painless with no significant downtime.
The Benefits of PRP
PRP can be used for many rejuvenation needs. Whether it’s for your hair, skin, or injuries, PRP can help give you a refreshed appearance and body. Because the blood for the treatment comes from you, there is no chance of rejection. It offers regenerative healing and nourishing powers to increase collagen, thicken the skin, replenish lost volume, increase hair growth, address stretch marks, soften rough skin texture, produce a more radiant complexion, and also heal injuries and alleviate pain.
Can I Get PRP Therapy?
The possibilities are endless with PRP therapy and can really increase confidence in the men and women who undergo this treatment. Candidates are men and women who are in generally good health and who experience hair loss, volume loss, wrinkles, or other injuries that may not be treatable with physical therapy, medications, or steroid injections. PRP is also an option to delay or prevent surgery, if your injury or concern may eventually go down that path.
It is important to schedule a consultation with Dr. Tchelebi so that she can evaluate you and determine whether or not you are a true candidate for PRP therapy. At that appointment, you will be able to discuss your concerns, your expectations, and your goals for treatment.
