PLATELET RICH PLASMA "PRP" THERAPY FOR FACIAL REJUVENATION, HAIR LOSS, JOINT PAINS, TENDONITIS, ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION AND MORE!
What is PRP and how does it work?
Platelet Rich Plasma is a non operative treatment option for joint pains, tendinopathies, hair loss, skin rejuvenation or erectile dysfunction to name a few. PRP is your own blood spun down and separated producing a concentration of platelets above normal values. These platelets are then injected into joints, skin, hair follicles, and other areas that require treatment. The growth factors trick your body into thinking there has been some type of injury, triggering your body's natural response to speed up collagen production and new tissues to heal itself.
Who is it best for?
It is a great treatment option to resurface or add volume to skin for those who are not keen on Botox or fillers as well treatment for acne scarring and aging skin. It can also be used for those suffering from joint pains, tendonitis, hair loss or erectile dysfunction.
What about results?
It might take a few weeks for platelet growth factors to heal, or stimulate healing, in areas treated. Also take into consideration the condition of the area treated. You could see results in 2-6 weeks but full collagen regeneration may take about 12 weeks. You could enjoy benefits of PRP up to 18 months.
How many treatments?
The best indicator of how many treatments one might need is dependent on the area being treated, and more importantly, the condition of the area being treated. It could take just 1 or it could take several treatments. Several factors such as age, condition of area treated, or lifestyle practices could play a role on how things turn out.
