What is PRP?
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is naturally present in your blood. Platelets are the part of your blood that helps it clot. They contain growth-factors that stimulate your body’s natural ability to heal itself. PRP is useful for skin revitalization, hair restoration, healing injuries, and chronic pain.
What is PRP used for?
Your Esperanza Hope Primary Care practitioner might recommend PRP as a treatment if you have:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Loose or sagging skin
- Dull, aging skin
- Hair loss
- Arthritis or joint pain
- Sprains or strains
- Muscle, tendon, or ligament injuries
- Other sports-related injuries
- Hair loss
To determine if PRP is right for you, your practitioner reviews your medical history and completes a physical exam.
What happens during PRP treatment?
What you can expect during PRP treatment depends on which procedure your practitioner recommends. They first take a sample of your blood, spin it in a centrifuge to extract PRP from the rest of your blood, and reintroduce it into your body in strategic areas. Examples of PRP procedures include:
During a PRP facial, your Esperanza Hope Primary Care specialist applies platelet-rich plasma to your face after cleaning it and performing microneedling, a procedure that creates tiny punctures in the skin.
A nonsurgical PRP face-lift involves injecting PRP just beneath your skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production, restore lost facial volume, reduce wrinkles, and tighten skin naturally without surgery or downtime.
Your practitioner injects PRP at strategic areas of your scalp to restore hair growth if you experience thinning hair or hair loss.
If you suffer from an injury or chronic pain, your Esperanza Hope Primary Care practitioner can inject PRP into affected areas to stimulate healing naturally.
Is PRP right for me?
Your provider lets you know if PRP or another noninvasive procedure best suits your needs based on the condition of your skin or the type of injury you have. Because PRP is sourced from your own blood, the procedure is safe and effective for nearly everybody.
Don’t let signs of aging or pain from an injury prevent you from enjoying life to its fullest when noninvasive solutions are available. Schedule an appointment with Esperanza Hope Primary Care over the phone or by requesting one online today.
