Many of the services we offer at DermaHealth provide great results. However, platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) is a way to enhance or boost those results. Platelet-rich plasma contains a large amount of our body’s own healing properties and growth factors to enhance the effects of our treatments and minimize healing time. Platelet-rich plasma can be applied or injected directly to injured tissue to stimulate healing and repair the affected area.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy
When should you use platelet-rich plasma therapy?
Platelet-rich plasma has many benefits, especially when talking about enhancing the healing process. Platelet-rich plasma can be injected directly into joints that have endured the “wear and tear” over the years, i.e. knees. Many professional athletes have reaped the benefits of PRP therapy following sports-related injuries. Following some of the procedures we offer at Dermahealth, PRP therapy can be utilized to enhance the results of the services and increase the healing time. Conjuctive therapy of microneedling with PRP is a service that has shown incredible results by improving texture, elasticity, and minimizing fine lines and wrinkles.
What occurs during a PRP procedure?
When performing a procedure utilizing PRP therapy, a clinician will obtain the client’s blood following their consent. The blood will be processed using professional equipment that we have at DermaHealth. The PRP will be extracted following its processing and then utilized to perform the designated procedure. Additionally, PRP can be used as a vehicle to inject stem cells that are utilized for various services offered at DermaHealth, triggering an increased healing time and boosted immune system.
How does platelet-rich plasma therapy work?
Although experts are unsure of exactly how PRP works, studies have shown that the high levels of growth factors within the PRP increase the healing process. The efficacy of the treatment varies among clients. There are many factors that influence the efficacy of PRP therapy. Some of those factors include, but are not limited to, the client’s overall health, the treatment area, and whether the injury being treated is acute or chronic. Ongoing research continues to suggest that PRP therapy stimulates healing and may provide relief for many clients.
Platelet-rich plasma therapy is straightforward, minimally invasive, and has low risks involved. It is a nonsurgical way to use our body’s own products to promote healing. This revolutionary procedure could provide excellent results for many clients with various concerns.
