What is PRP Therapy [PRP Injections]?
Platelet-rich plasma commonly referred to as “PRP”, is a patient’s own blood that’s been spun and separated, producing a concentration of platelets above the normal values. The use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which is technically just a portion of your own blood having a platelet concentration level that is above the baseline to promote healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints, can be used to for various musculoskeletal problems or cosmetic goals. Platelets are the clotting cells of our blood, but they also have great potential in enhancing the healing of skin tissue, muscle, tendon, and ligaments. Platelets contain more than a thousand different proteins and hormones that stimulate cell growth and repair, such as vascular endothelial growth factor and the insulin-like growth factor-1. On their own, many of these chemicals are known for their ability to heal injuries and relieve pain. Together, they have a synergistic effect, which may help to explain the treatment’s regenerating and rejuvenating power to enhance your skin in an all-natural way.
What are the Benefits of PRP Therapy [PRP Injections]?
When platelet-rich therapy is used to rejuvenate the skin in your face, it serves as a unique kind of premium level facial treatment. When deciding whether or not platelet-rich plasma therapy is right for you, take into consideration all of your cosmetic wants and needs. If you want to have a youthful and rejuvenated look, without the use of extensively harsh chemicals and toxins, the amazing benefits of PRP therapy might be a suitable option. Because this therapy uses your own blood and injects the plasma back into your skin, there are no foreign cells entering your body or altering the chemical composition of your skin. An ideal candidate for PRP is someone who ultimately wants to achieve great, all-natural results without harming their skin with harmful toxins.
Who is a Candidate for PRP Therapy [PRP Injections]?
The best candidates for PRP therapy at Buinewicz Plastic Surgery are those patients who want great, long-lasting results that are all natural. Platelets play a key role in stopping bleeding and in repairing damaged blood vessels and cells in your body, and they also contain substances called “growth factors” that activate and rejuvenate the cells in your body. Unlike dermal fillers that use various synthetic substances, PRP uses the patient’s natural biology to address skin defects and volume loss, triggering the production of new cells and collagen formation.
What is the Procedure for PRP Therapy [PRP Injections]?
The process of making PRP is relatively simple. After drawing between half an ounce and an ounce of a patient’s blood, it is then spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from most of the rest of the red and white blood cells. The spinning concentrates the platelets in the plasma, the liquid part of the blood. When the process is finished, the number of platelets in the plasma increases by a factor of between two and 20, depending on the spinning method. The substance is then injected into your treatment site. This process can be repeated with better and better results seen with a total of two to three treatments given three to four months apart. Patients can expect to see better results as they receive more treatments, and with time, the results of your PRP therapy from Buinewicz Plastic Surgery just keep getting better and better.
What is the Cost for PRP Therapy [PRP Injections]?
The total cost of your Buinewicz Plastic Surgery PRP therapy treatment will vary based upon how much treatment is required and how many PRP therapy sessions are involved.
