Platelet rich plasma (of fibrin) is a new form of therapy we use to help promote healing. This article will help you get a better idea of how it works and whether it’s a good option for you.
What is Platelet Rich Plasma
Platelet rich plasma is a substance that promotes good health and healing when injected. It solves plenty of problems, especially those related to aging, like hair loss and muscular deficiencies.
Plasma is a naturally occurring component in your blood that contains special proteins to help your blood clot. By isolating plasma and concentrating it to enrich it with platelets, we’ve found a form of treatment that encourages healing beyond anything your natural plasma can achieve.
What is it for?
There are plenty of reasons why someone might want to look into PRP treatment. If any of the following apply to you, then it might be worth consulting your doctor to find out what your next steps are:
- Hair loss
- Muscle repair
- Tendon injuries
- Acute injuries
- Postsurgical repair
It’s great at treating all of the above, and you can see that you don’t always have to be “elderly” to use it. Sometimes, you might just need a little extra help recovering from something, which is precisely what PRP treatment will do for you. PRP treatment is mostly used to promote your body’s natural healing capabilities.
How is it collected?
Collecting the plasma is important to ensure the process and treatment is successful. It’s collected by first drawing a sample of your blood. The amount needed depends on the area of injection, and your doctor will be able to tell you more about this.
Once drawn, your blood is placed in a centrifuge, where the machine will spin very quickly until your blood components separate. This usually takes about 15 minutes. From there, the doctor takes the separated plasma and prepares it for injection in the area it was initially drawn from.
How does PRP treatment work?
PRP treatment works by introducing concentrated plasma into your bloodstream. The plasma is separated from your blood in a centrifuge, and your doctor will make sure to use the same blood to apply it to the affected area. Once injected, the concentrated plasma will have profound effects on your overall health and healing processes.
