PRP (platelet rich plasma) injections are a form of regenerative medicine therapy.
Autologous tissue – in this case platelets and fibrin – are used to treat tissues that are damaged or injured, or that require healing and stimulation.
Numerous growth factors are found in platelets – many of these growth factors improve microcirculation in tissue.
By harvesting these for re-injection through a simple blood sample that is centrifuged, PRP injections allow medical professionals to take concentrated platelets from a person’s blood and to re-inject them into parts of the body that require it. Doing so helps to naturally, promote healing.
PRP is a simple and effective treatment suitable for facial and body treatments, and indications include:
- skin and tissue rejuvenation
- sunburn and acute burns
- assists with sexual wellbeing including Peyronie’s disease, ED and improving orgasm and vaginal atrophy.
- promotes hair regrowth.
