If you are reading this, then you’ve heard about platelet-rich plasma therapy, but not sure about what it is. PRP or Platelet-rich plasma therapy is commonly used for treating orthopedic injuries, arthritis and for several other conditions. It stimulates cell growth in the body of the patient wherever it is injected. At the same time, it assists the body to heal itself in a natural manner without the usage of any chemicals or foreign substances. Today, PRP is widely used for two primary purposes:
Skin or facial rejuvenation
The best part about platelet-rich plasma is that it is now popularly used for improving the appearance of scars, wrinkles and circles below the eyes. Also, PRP therapy is now referred to as the ‘liquid’ facelift method. It is one of the main reasons for the increasing demand for PRP replacement therapy in QLD.
PRP is an effective treatment for hair restoration that produces impressive natural results. Hair loss is a common problem in contemporary times, and PRP hair therapy makes it possible to gain your hair back without any hindrance. It heals the damaged points by increasing blood supply to the follicle that leads to increasing shaft size, controls hair growth cycle and reduces hair loss.
What is platelet-rich plasma therapy?
A nutrient-component responsible for repairing the tissue, platelets release reparative and rejuvenating hormones in the area after it is directly injected in the soft tissues. For PRP, the patient’s blood is drawn, and after that, it is divided into platelet-rich and platelet-poor components. This separation is done with the help of a centrifuge and a test tube. Later, the resulting platelet-rich plasma is utilized to rejuvenate the face in a systematic process.
PRP and facial rejuvenation
When it comes to rejuvenating the face, the PRP is directly injected in a grid over the area of skin concerned. This procedure initiates the recovering phase of the skin, followed by which it draws in vascularity, deposits collagen and elastin and in the end, develops a youthful skin. It has been found that women who have had facelift treatment, found that their face looked better even after several months of treatment. PRP takes weeks to months to initiate cell growth in the skin. As a consequence, the quality of the skin improves over time.
PRP and dark circles
Dark circles below our eyes can happen because of several reasons. However, if it is pigment-related, PRP is applied or injected under the skin or around the eyes to get the best results. With time, the plasma initiates cell growth in the skin and kick-starts the regenerative phase.
PRP and hair restoration
Since platelet-rich plasma therapy is not a demanding process, most find it a feasible option to restore their hair growth or reduce hair fall. However, it should be noted that PRP does not lead to hair growth from a bald spot, but it is useful for regrowing thin areas.
