A PRP treatment begins with a simple blood draw and can be completed within an hour. Your blood is spun in a unique centrifuge that separates plasma and platelets from the rest of the blood. The plasma, now highly concentrated with rich platelets, is collected in syringes and is needled back into your tissues where it’s needed. The growth factors stimulate stem cells to create new, youthful tissue in areas like the face and scalp, and in sex organs, muscles and joints.
It’s like turning back the clock, and what was old and damaged is repaired and made new. It’s the essence of regenerative medicine, and the beauty of it is the PRP procedure uses what your body has produced, so your body will readily accept the treatment without reaction or rejection. PRP procedures are minimally invasive and, typically, patients experience very little discomfort with short down time.
