Platelet-rich plasma therapy, or PRP treatment, has become one of the most popular and effective treatments for multiple issues!! PRP treatment uses your body’s own growth factors as a restart to healing, growing, and rejuvenating your own body. Read on for the benefits of PRP treatment.
What is Platelet-rich Plasma Therapy?
PRP treatment is the process of inserting small amounts of concentrated plasma from your own blood into your skin or joints. This stimulates rapid repair and induces collagen replacement and healing of damaged tissues. PRP treatment is widely known in the medical field, for healing injuries such as arthritis, tendinitis, ACL injuries, tennis elbow, and more- it has moved into the aesthetic world due to it’s amazing potential to heal naturally and effectively.
The Platelet-rich Plasma Process
The first step of PRP therapy is to draw your blood. The next step is to isolate the platelets from the blood and then inject the platelet-rich material back into the area that is being treated to encourage new cell growth. Elan MedSpa combines PRP therapy with micro-needling to achieve even greater, quicker, and more visible results- which is also known as the Vampire Facial (Trademarked by Dr. Runnells). The addition of micro-needling triggers your body to heal itself without any foreign substances. The skin will safely repair itself by producing more collagen.
In addition to doing facial treatments, PRP is used in our office for joint pain, muscle tears/strains, scar revision, sexual wellness/incontinence (O Shot and P Shot), hair restoration, and volume replacement! The options of using PRP, your own body to heal, truly are endless!!
