Platelet-rich plasma or PRP is an innovative treatment and may help stimulate cell regeneration. PRP uses platelets, a component of human blood. Platelets contain special growth factors that help heal injuries and regenerate tissue.
During PRP treatments, your provider draws a small amount of blood from your body. Next, they spin the blood in a centrifuge to separate platelets from other blood cells. The resulting liquid contains a high concentration of platelets.
Your provider then injects the platelets into a target area of your body. PRP injections may boost healing to an injury or rejuvenate aging tissues. PRP uses no pharmaceuticals, so it's an excellent option for patients seeking drug-free pain relief.
Many doctors use PRP to treat injuries and chronic pain. Professional athletes also rely on PRP to recover after a sports injury. PRP helps with inflammatory conditions like arthritis, too. LifeWell M.D. can determine whether PRP may help relieve your pain.
LifeWell M.D. also incorporates PRP into a wide range of aesthetic treatments, including:
These treatments may firm up sagging skin or stimulate hair growth. PRP increases cell regeneration, which helps restore a more youthful appearance. In some cases, PRP can also provide sexual rejuvenation. LifeWell M.D. offers the O-Shot® and P-Shot® to boost vitality and libido.
PRP is safe for most patients. The treatment uses your blood, so there is little risk of infection or allergic reaction. Some patients may have minor bruising at the treatment site, as with any injection.
LifeWell M.D. can help you decide if PRP is a good fit. The practice offers in-depth consultations to get to the root of the problem. If PRP isn't right for you, your practitioner helps you explore alternative treatments, such as acupuncture for pain relief or PDO threads for a non-surgical facelift.
PRP injections promote healing by regenerating tissue in the target area. This process can take some time. But full results usually appear within a few weeks or months.
After receiving PRP treatments, you may notice reduced pain levels and improved mobility. You might also see positive changes in your skin and hair. Repeated injections can help preserve these results.
