Regeneration can be accomplished by using the nutrients and growth factors in the blood to stimulate tissue rejuvenation. Unlike other procedures, a PRP treatment offers benefits through the creation of healthy replacement tissue. We can perform this treatment on clients who do not want surgery.
Using Platelet-Rich Plasma
Blood platelets aid in clotting when our circulatory system springs a leak. The platelets also act as a signaling mechanism for the growth of healthy replacement tissues. Proteins and other growth factors in the platelets accelerate the production of skin cells.
Normally, our blood is composed of about 5 percent platelets. When concentrated in a small amount of plasma, the resulting 80-90 percent composition of platelets can really speed up the tissue regeneration process. The platelet and plasma mix can be used to accomplish a variety of different things, offering many benefits.
What PRP Can Do for You
First and foremost, PRP can help with regeneration, whether it be for the skin or for healing after an injury. Candidates for the treatment are people who are healthy overall, but could benefit from the use of PRP in some way. We can discuss this with you further during a consultation.
After we consult with the client, we design a customized treatment that may involve one or more PRP sessions. The PRP is produced by drawing a small amount of blood from the client, placing it in a special container, and spinning it at a high speed. The platelets are activated by mixing the plasma with a special solution. The PRP is then used in the treatment area. The body senses injury because of the high concentration of platelets. This accelerates the production of healthy tissues.
A Natural Procedure
As you can see, this procedure gets its magic from your own blood. The PRP procedure is gaining in popularity because of the simplicity with which it’s performed, as well as the results it can provide. There’s no risk of contamination or allergic reactions because the blood belongs to the individual being treated.
