PRP Therapy Q & A
What is PRP therapy?
PRP injections are an innovative regenerative medicine treatment that accelerates your body’s ability to repair and generate new cells. The team at Premier Wellness uses PRP therapy to treat hair loss and skin imperfections including wrinkles, fine lines, dark spots, and collagen loss.
PRP therapy begins with your doctor drawing a vial of your blood. Then they separate your blood in a centrifuge and combine the platelets with your plasma to make a serum. Finally, they inject the serum into your skin or scalp, where it triggers and supports your healing response.
The whole process takes around an hour. In the days and weeks following your PRP injections, you should notice an improvement in your appearance.* Your doctor provides a customized treatment plan, and you may need a series of treatments to achieve optimal results.
How does PRP therapy work?
Platelets are one of the solid components of your blood. They contain proteins and growth factors that help your blood to clot and your tissue to heal. During PRP therapy, your doctor injects a serum that has 5-10 times more platelets than a regular blood sample into the part of your body that needs a regenerative boost.
As the platelets flood your tissue, they stimulate your body’s natural healing response while also providing the proteins and growth factors your body needs to repair and make new cells. This can accelerate your healing response and reduce signs of aging.
What conditions improve with PRP therapy?
Physicians across a wide range of medical specialty areas use PRP therapy to address issues including pain, arthritic or damaged, joints, and cosmetic imperfections. At Premier Wellness, the team offers PRP therapy to improve the appearance of your skin and address hair loss. For example, vampire facials can reduce wrinkles, fine lines, pigmentation issues, and dark spots.
Am I a good candidate for PRP therapy?
PRP is suitable for almost anyone who generally has good health. Your doctor provides a consultation and exam to ensure that PRP therapy is right for you.
