How Does PRP Help Me Heal?April 1, 2020
What is Platelet-Rich Plasma?
Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a regenerative medical treatment in which a small amount of the patient’s own blood is extracted, separated, and concentrated for its growth factors and plasma, and reinserted into the target area of the body for healing.
PRP works by sending growth factors and other regenerative properties into the target area, which signals the body to heal the affected area. This increases blood flow, stimulates cell growth, and consequently tissue regeneration.
PRP is widely used for many different procedures, including stem cell therapy, laser therapy, and more. This treatment has been used in treating shoulder tears, osteoarthritis, tendon injuries, ligament injuries, and many other tissue-related conditions. While PRP can be helpful on its own, its potential is truly harnessed when combined as part of a complete treatment plan tailored to your desired healthcare outcome.
Many physicians use it as part of regenerative medicine treatments to help restore torn cartilage or injured muscles, but it can also be used for cosmetic purposes. This includes restoring your skin and helping to reduce acne. In fact, you’ll find that there are so many proven uses for PRP it’s hard to list them all!
