Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet-rich plasma or PRP is a blood product that has a high concentration of platelets. Platelets are best known for their ability to form blood clots and stop cuts from bleeding. But platelets also have growth factors that support the repairing of the cut. PRP is made from a sample of your blood and contains a higher amount of platelets and growth factors. When injected into specific areas of your body, PRP initiates or stimulates the healing process to get the desired regenerative results.
What are the PRP treatments?
Gentera Center for Precision Medicine uses PRP for health, wellness, and aesthetics. Some of the PRP treatments include:
Pain and inflammation
Gentera Center for Precision Medicine uses PRP to reduce pain and inflammation that affects the musculoskeletal condition. That includes your muscles, ligaments, cartilage, and joints.
When you have an injury or degenerative condition (arthritis) that causes pain and fails to improve with traditional medical treatments, you may consider PRP treatments to stimulate the healing process.
Gentera Center for Precision Medicine uses PRP for hair loss. When treating hair loss, your provider injects the PRP directly into the area of the scalp where your hair is thinning. The healing properties in the PRP reactivate dormant hair follicles and prolong the hair’s growing phase.
To get the best results for hair loss, you need a series of monthly PRP injections for the first three months, and then follow-up injections every three to six months over the next two years.
For facial rejuvenation, Gentera Center for Precision Medicine combines PRP with microneedling.
Microneedling is a cosmetic treatment that stimulates collagen production. Collagen is a structural protein that keeps your skin strong and resilient.
Combining PRP with microneedling accelerates collagen production to rejuvenate and revitalize your look.
Gentera Center for Precision Medicine uses PRP to enhance the sexual health of men and women.
