Why PRP is the New Anti-Aging Wonder Treatment

Although we are living longer than ever, the effects aging has on our body can still make life difficult. From chronic pain to slower healing and aesthetic issues such as hair loss, we all want to find anti-aging treatments that help improve our quality of life. PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma therapy in Phoenix is being deemed a wonder treatment for many of the woes associated with aging.

This innovative, safe, and effective treatment can help eliminate pain without surgery. It uses the regenerative power of the body to speed healing and help return proper function. Using a sample of your own blood, the platelets are separated from the plasma to harness the power of the activated platelets.

Not only can it be used to resolve chronic pain, but it also is a proven hair replacement therapy solution in Phoenix. Here’s why PRP is the new anti-aging wonder treatment.

What is PRP? 

The genius behind this cutting-edge procedure is the use of the patient’s own platelets. Platelets contain important growth factors that stimulate the reparative cells in your body. When the platelet-rich plasma is injected into your damaged tissue it releases the growth factors that trigger your natural healing power.

Inflammation is reduced and tissue regeneration is enhanced. Your damaged tissue receives a direct boost of healing platelets to stimulate your natural healing process to resolve musculoskeletal problems.

What does PRP Treat?

This non-surgical treatment can be used to treat issues with the shoulders, back, knees, elbows, and hands. It is highly effective in healing soft-tissue injuries such as:

  • Torn rotator cuff
  • Tennis elbow
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Achilles tendinitis
  • Hamstring tears

You can accelerate the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles and joints in the areas that commonly cause pain or that are prone to injury as you age.

Avoiding Surgery with PRP

By triggering the body’s natural healing process, PRP has helped many people avoid unnecessary surgery. If you have been told surgery is required, you can set up a consultation with a PRP clinic in Phoenix to discuss how PRP therapy can help repair damage.

How does PRP Therapy Work for Hair Restoration?

PRP therapy can also be used for successful hair restoration. The growth factors stimulate natural hair growth, making it a viable option for people suffering from hair loss.

There is no downtime required making it an easy treatment that won’t interfere with your daily routine. Although multiple treatments are required to see the best results, some patients have had success after just one treatment. Your hair will gradually increase in volume over the course of several months.

What are the Benefits of PRP?

There are many benefits of PRP including:

  • Low risk of side effects or allergies as your own cells are used
  • No downtime required
  • You can return to your daily activities
  • Provides a natural healing process
  • Tissue is healed instead of just masking symptoms
  • Minimally invasive
  • Non-surgical treatment option
