Your car slowly wears down as you use it. The more mileage it sees, the more it starts to break down. The same could be said of your body. As time goes on, your skin and body start to wear down. Wrinkles form and your hair starts to lose its thickness and length. When your car needs a fix, you take it into a shop for a tune-up. You may not realize that you too can be brought to a stop and receive a tune-up. One of the most effective and new ways to treat a myriad of problems is PRP therapy.
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, a key component of your blood. When you go in for a PRP therapy procedure, your own is blood taken from your body and placed in a centrifuge. The centrifuge spins quickly to separate the plasma and platelets from the rest of the blood. Your doctor then takes this potent cocktail and either injects it into a target area or covers your skin with it depending on the therapy you’ve chosen.
The idea behind PRP therapy is to use the body’s own natural healing properties to kickstart certain areas of the body into producing efficiently again. Plasma and platelets are beneficial in healing since they have to do with the clotting process. They’re also packed full of nutrients the body regularly needs. By injecting them into certain cells, they can make those cells start behaving at full optimization again. When pressed again the skin, they can stimulate collagen production and nourish the skin.
If you suffer from hair loss, you’re likely tired of trying to find an effective way to regrow your hair without needing a transplant. PRP might just be the answer you’re looking for. By injecting your plasma and platelets into your scalp, your hair cells can become stimulated and regrow your hair. PRP has become a popular form of therapy for hair loss.
