An increasing number of physicians use PRP in place of certain medications or more invasive treatments. It’s a natural substance that can serve many purposes as it contains growth factors and platelets from your blood.
Platelets, a key component in PRP, are structures in your blood aside from the red and white blood cells. They clump together to slow or stop bleeding and to initiate the healing process when you sustain an injury.
PRP is comprised of highly concentrated platelets suspended in blood plasma, which is the liquid portion of your blood. When injected, platelets in PRP release growth factors that signal cell reproduction and tissue regeneration.
Every PRP treatment at Resilient Healthcare Services uses platelets from your own blood, not from a human or animal donor. This means your body won’t reject the injections, and there is little risk of infection.
Your visit to Resilient Healthcare Services begins with a blood draw to obtain a sample that can be used to harvest the PRP. Your provider places the sample in a centrifuge, which is a device that spins rapidly to separate particles in a liquid base. In the case of your blood, red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets all gather in distinct, separate layers.
Your provider extracts the PRP from the container and prepares it for injection.
During your initial evaluation, your provider at Resilient Healthcare Services reviews your medical history and informs you if PRP treatments are a good fit. Resilient Healthcare Services offers several PRP treatments, which include:
A one-hour needling session rejuvenates your skin while addressing concerns like hollow or dark areas under your eyes, wrinkles, and large pores. Three sessions provide optimal PRP facial rejuvenation results.
If your hair is falling out all over your head or in bald spots, three or four rounds of PRP scalp injections can restore deactivated follicles to improve hair growth and thickness.
Platelet-rich plasma is an excellent alternative to other treatments that use medications, energy, and chemicals for similar results. Call Resilient Healthcare Services or schedule a treatment consultation online to find out if you’re a good candidate for PRP treatments today.
