Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Minimally invasive, cell-based therapy introduces cells from one part of the body to the impacted area, for accelerated restoration. Stem cells work by releasing proteins called growth factors to help heal, repair and restore damaged areas.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) (also known as Platelet Lysate Injection Treatments) is a treatment based on growth factor, where a patient’s blood is drawn and then placed in a centrifuge where the spinning results in a separation of the platelets from the rest of the blood. For process completion, a doctor will take the platelets and recombine them using a lower blood plasma volume, resulting in a fluid with a higher-than-normal platelet concentration, thus growth factors (unique proteins that spur body growth and healing) and subsequently injected into damaged tissue to assist with expediting the process of collagen and tissue rebuilding.
HAIR GROWTH STIMULATION
Treatments may boost the restoration of hair for patients dealing with androgenic alopecia and alopecia areata.
SKIN REJUVENATION-PRP FACIALS
This procedure involves collagen synthesis promotion, which boost the renewal of skin and growth of cells. As a result, tissue regenerates, which means a more youthful appearance and firmer skin.
JOINT DAMAGE REPAIRS
Treatments may help with healing articular cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and muscles that have been injured or are diseased. This holds a special benefit for soft tissue that typically does have not sufficient blood flow, and it has achieved considerable popularity among patients dealing with orthopedic injuries.
WOUND & SKIN CARE
Therapies may result in tissue regeneration that has received damaged due to chronic or acute wounds (including burns and scar tissue) while also controlling the visible effects of aging and skin exposure to ultraviolet rays.
SEXUAL DYSFUNCTION PRP
Injections may focus on erectile dysfunction (Eros) as well as urinary incontinence, dryness in the vagina, and poor female sexual stimulation and pleasure (Aphrodite). These injections are required every six to nine months.
The difference between Stem Cell and PRP?
Both stem cell and PRP treatment can prove effective in boosting healing. However, there are differences in each process. Stem cell therapy involves marrow harvested cell injections, while in PRP, blood plasma is extracted and platelets are enriched for injection purposes. Harvested platelets are injected to assist with tendons, ligaments, and cartilage healing. Stem cell treatments have stronger reactions releasing a greater number of healing factors and they may result in additional stem cell activation which can yield results beyond the what PRP is capable of.
