What You Should Know About PRP Injections
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a revolutionary way to heal and rejuvenate your body from the inside out. Our experienced providers at Hairskill offer this convenient in-office treatment to address a variety of problems that affect your health and appearance.
If you have not considered the benefits of PRP injections, it may be worthwhile to schedule a consultation and learn how they can treat hair loss, reverse the signs of aging and help you recover more quickly and more effectively from injuries.
Within your blood there are growth factors that can be regenerated into new and healthier cells. These growth factors are found in high concentrations in the blood plasma and also help the blood to clot when it has an open wound.
By using PRP, you can achieve a number of benefits as new growth factors begin to facilitate healing of your body, including increased hair growth, reduced pain and stiffness in arthritic joints, and faster healing of musculoskeletal injuries such as damaged areas of tendons, muscles and ligaments are regenerated. PRP can also be used to improve the appearance and health of your skin.
How PRP treatments work
To access the PRP, a small amount of blood is removed from your arm. The team uses a device known as a centrifuge to quickly spin the blood, separating the plasma and platelets from the other materials in their blood.
The resulting platelet-rich plasma contains a high concentration of growth factors and other healing substances that are then injected into the designated treatment area. Using a personalized treatment plan, the team injects PRP only in the areas that need attention. For your convenience, you may receive a topical anesthetic before injecting the PRP.
Expectations and results
After your PRP treatment, the new cells regenerate in your body, which takes time. Within 3-4 weeks of treatment, you can begin to enjoy results such as smoother and firmer skin or improved hair growth. If you are using PRP to treat an injury, you may experience a reduction in your pain and an increase in your overall mobility and function as you continue to heal.
Another benefit of PRP treatment is that once you achieve the desired results, they will last a long time. For musculoskeletal injuries and arthritis, staying at a healthy weight and preventing new injuries in the area can help you maintain your results for years to come.
No downtime, no recovery
After receiving your PRP treatments, you can return to your usual routine. There is a minimal chance of side effects from PRP injections because you are using your own blood for the procedure. While you may have some sensitivity at the injection site, there is no limit to what you can do.
Unlike surgery, PRP is only minimally invasive and does not require incisions, so you do not have to worry about visible scars. Each treatment is customized to meet your needs.
