Natural healing with little to no chance of side effects! PRP utilizes one's own blood that is centrifuged in a special way to concentrate the platelets. The activated platelets are then drawn up carefully and injected into the injured or aged tissue. From there it releases growth factors that stimulate and increase the number of reparative cells. Because it utilizes the patients own blood, the risk of reactions and/or side effects are very limited because the body does not reject a person's own blood.
PRP treatments can be used for chronic and acute injuries, from tendon problems to partially torn muscles and ligaments, as well as a beauty treatment for rejuvenating skin and hair growth.
Platelet Rich Plasma is being popularized in the beauty industry as it can be used to diminish fine lines, wrinkles and over time reverse sun damaged skin. The blood is drawn up and centrifuged as stated before, then the plasma is injected under the dermis of the targeted area. This stimulates cell growth and collagen production. This therapy can improve complexion, color tone, texture and restore lost facial volume.
PRP is also being utilized to stimulate hair growth. The blood is drawn up and centrifuged as in all PRP therapies. Once the plasma is drawn up and ready, Dr. Karla may also inject ozone into the scalp to help with circulation. Very small needles are then used to insert the plasma and target the area new growth is desired.
