The Miracle of Self-Healing with PRP
What is PRP you ask? Well, it is the product you get when the platelets and serum is separated from the blood after a routine blood draw, also known as Platelet Rich Plasma. There is a special centrifuge that spins a special kit to separate these parts of your own blood. The resulting solution known as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is miraculous, and has such a wide range of benefits because it has your own body’s repair and growth factors just ready to burst out and do their job. As an alternative to Hyaluronic Acid fillers like Juvederm & Restylane Family of Products or neuromuscular modulators like Botox, Dysport, the PRP solution is injected into wrinkles, folds and fine lines to induce natural collagen and elastin formation leading to a more youthful and healthy look which is long lasting.
Platelet Rich Plasma | Look Years Younger
To accomplish our “Turn Back Time” Facial one of our providers will preform a blood draw once you arrive for your appointment. Then using very special blood separation kits from Harvest Thermo. Once you blood is placed in the separation device and then in the centrifuge the platelet rich and platelet poor plasma is separated from the serum. Then our expert provider will use a micro-needle roller also know as a dermal roller on your face. This process is nearly painless so no need to worry. The reason is when we apply the PRP to your face we want it to be absorbed into the top layers of your skin where the PRP will start to do it’s job. Also our provider may opt to use some of the PRP and inject a small amount in areas where scars, deep wrinkles, discolorations and blemishes are. The whole treeatment is about an hour and the next day your friends and family will want to know your secret.
Hair Restoration | PRP and New Hair
To restore hair loss one simply injects the PRP solution into the scalp using very tiny needle. Unfortunately it does not work if you are already bald but it does work in most cases of alopecia.
Power of PRP | Sports Injuries
In sports related injuries one injects the PRP solution directly into the traumatized tissue. Any acute or chronic soft tissue injury like tendinitis, bursitis, fasciitis, capsulitis, chondritis, sacroiliitis or enthesitis can be thus treated. This includes bone spurs, plantar fascitis, tennis or golfer’s elbow, shoulder or hip bursitis, trigger finger or thumb and sprains and strains. It is a welcome relief to Week-End Worriers. Even though it may require a few more injections to accomplish pain relief it works in most cases of advanced osteoarthritis of knees, ankles, shoulders or any other joint that is accessible to a needle. It is injected in the soft tissue of the neck, back and sacral/pelvis area to give pain relief from neck and back pain, sacroiliitis or pyriformis syndrome.
In medical conditions it is injected into diabetic ulcers, bed sores, acute and chronic bone infections, poor healing wounds, or penetrating injuries. It is not a treatment for cancer so injecting into various types of skin cancer is a no-no.
PRP is safe, easy and a great deal of fun because you using your own healing powers to help yourself. What empowerment!
