Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy can help you recover from pain caused by accidents, injuries, or disease. It is also a vital factor in ground-breaking minimally invasive aesthetic treatments.
The platelet-rich plasma injection is synthesized after the doctor draws some of your blood. The small sample is spun to separate the components of blood. The platelets are concentrated in your plasma and injected into the site of an injury or facial imperfection for the Vampire Facelift.
PRP contains a rich solution of growth factors, proteins, platelets, and other healing agents. When present at the site of an injury, they all get to work healing tissues and calling other regenerative cells to help, such as stem cells.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy
Platelets are the smallest type of blood cells and are shaped like dinner plates, hence their name. When the body sustains an injury, it releases a chemical that alerts and activates healing processes. When platelets receive this signal, they activate into healing cells, resulting in an extended shape.
The primary task of these healing platelets is to alleviate pain. PRP is effective because of the presence of growth factors that are vital for repairing cells and reducing inflammation. A PRP injection at the targeted site will help the body naturally return joints, muscles, and other tissues to normal function.
PRP is also effective for aesthetic purposes to renew the skin, improve elasticity, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. PRP facelifts or Vampire Facelifts involve strategically administering injections under the skin in order to increase naturally occurring proteins that enhance your skin and create a youthful glow.
Platelet-rich plasma treatment is a safe alternative to surgery. It utilizes your own blood to help repair and renew damaged tissue, meaning that your body will not reject a PRP injection. It’s an all-natural pain relief treatment that accelerates your body’s recovery time.
PRP treatment is effective for multiple conditions, including:
- Joint pain
- Knee and ankle injuries
- Torn rotator cuff and other shoulder pain
- Partially torn labrum
- Muscular tears
- And more
