What Are the Benefits of Platelet Rich Plasma Treatments?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment is a safe, non-surgical procedure that uses platelets from your own blood to regenerate tissues and stimulate your body’s natural healing abilities. PRP treatments can reduce chronic pain, reverse soft tissue injuries, stimulate hair growth, and increase collagen production to help you feel better and look significantly younger. At EnteBella Medical, we offer a wide range of PRP therapies for those who want a natural alternative to invasive surgical procedures.

Here’s a closer look at how PRP treatment works and how it may benefit your goal to reduce pain or reverse the effects of aging.

What Does Platelet Rich Plasma Do?

PRP is a non-invasive procedure that stimulates your body’s natural healing process so you can recover more quickly from injuries and trauma without surgery. PRP can also reverse common signs of visible aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin, and stimulate hair growth in men and women with hair loss.

PRP is an ideal alternative treatment option for those who want to avoid invasive surgeries and the lengthy downtime associated with those procedures. PRP requires no recovery or downtime and addresses the source and root causes of injuries and health problems rather than only the symptoms. Choosing PRP reduces your risk of potential side effects due to the way this treatment uses platelets and cells from your own body as opposed to those from an animal or another human.

How Does Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy Work?

PRP therapy is relatively simple and straightforward. First, one of our doctors will draw a small sample of your blood and place it into a centrifuge to isolate the plasma’s platelets. Then, your platelets are placed into a syringe and injected into the affected area of your body. After the injection, your platelets will release a series of growth factors that stimulate the growth of new, healthy cells that regenerate your body and reverse the effects of aging, injuries, and pain conditions. PRP also can reduce inflammation.

How Does PRP Hair Restoration Work For Hair Loss?

PRP can be injected directly into the scalp to stimulate hair growth in areas affected by hair loss and balding. PRP can repair damaged blood vessels that may have contributed to hair loss and extend the damaged hair follicles’ growth phase.

PRP hair restoration is usually most effective during the first two to three years of noticeable hair loss before hair follicles are badly damaged. Most of our patients need an average of three to four treatments spaced six to eight weeks apart to achieve desired results, though one of our doctors can give you a more accurate timeframe during your initial consultation. Our PRP hair restoration treatments produce no side effects or downtime—meaning you can resume your usual activities immediately following your appointment.

Hair regrowth with PRP usually becomes noticeable after several months as hair follicles go through their growth cycles. After your first round of treatments, we may recommend returning to our clinic once every four to six months for maintenance and to ensure your hair follicles stay healthy.

Why Choose PRP Treatment For Skin Rejuvenation?

PRP can be used as a facial rejuvenation treatment to reduce signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, scars, stretch marks, and sagging skin. A PRP facial involves using a microneedling device that stimulates your skin’s natural collagen production and the growth of new, healthy skin cells. A PRP facelift can plump the skin and add volume to your face to help you look younger, and reverse many skin irregularities that may be contributing to an older-looking appearance.

PRP microneedling may be superior to treatment with dermal fillers due to the way it uses your own platelets to regenerate your skin as opposed to the many ingredients commonly found in fillers. With a PRP facial, you face a reduced risk of side effects including allergic reactions.

This cosmetic procedure can tighten your skin, improve its texture, and minimize the appearance of scars, pores, acne, and wrinkles. Many of our patients who choose PRP microneedling need an average of three to four treatments spaced four to six weeks apart, followed by a routine maintenance appointment once every four to six months.
