Often, choosing an all-natural lifestyle can make you healthier and happier. Natural foods can boost your mood and energy. So when it comes to healing and rejuvenating the body, why would you not want to go all-natural? The problem, of course, is that often treatments and procedures in the medical and beauty fields rely on unnatural means and ways of thinking. However, there is one treatment available that relies on nothing other than your own blood in order to achieve results: PRP therapy. Learn more about PRP, how it works, what it treats, and how it can help you in an all-natural way.
What is PRP?
First, PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, which is one component of your blood; however, PRP is actually made up of several things: many different proteins called growth factors, stem cells, and white blood cells. PRP, in essence, is what is responsible for healing the body after it has been injured. On its own, PRP can heal the body fairly well, but when PRP is concentrated and injected back into the body, it supercharges your healing ability.
The PRP Procedure
PRP therapy is a relatively simple and straightforward procedure. We will begin with a routine blood draw, and your blood sample will be placed inside of a centrifuge that is able to separate your blood into its different parts. We will then extract your PRP and create an injectable serum.
With PRP therapy, there are no chemicals or synthetic substances used. There is also no going under the knife and no invasive procedures. PRP therapy also comes with no set downtime, and since we are only injecting your own blood back into your body, there is no risk of an allergic reaction, either.
What Does PRP Treat?
Well, PRP is able to treat a wide range of different conditions and problems. PRP was first used during open heart surgery procedures and then moved to the orthopedic world. Now, it is widely used in the beauty industry as well.
PRP and Hair Restoration
PRP therapy has shown real promise in treating hair loss. Normally, hair loss or thinning is caused by damaged or malfunctioning hair follicles. When PRP is injected into the scalp, it heals these hair follicles so that they will start producing hair once again.
PRP and Facial Rejuvenation
PRP therapy can be used to rejuvenate the face as well. One reason we develop lines and wrinkles is because our bodies stop producing collagen. PRP is able to up collagen production as well as heal your skin and tissue so that you look younger.
