Plasma is the fluid part of the blood. It is composed mainly of water and protein and provides an environment for red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets to circulate in the body. Platelets, also called platelets, are blood cells that cause blood to clot and other functions needed to improve growth.
Platelet activation plays a key role in the body's natural healing process.
What is PRP and what is PRP injection like?
PRP uses injections of the patient's own platelets to accelerate the healing of damaged tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints. Thus, PRP injection uses each patient's treatment system to improve musculoskeletal problems.
PRP injection is done by removing one or more tubes from a person's blood and passing them through a centrifuge to concentrate platelets. These activated platelets are then injected directly into the damaged tissue of your body. This releases growth factors that stimulate and increase the number of repair cells produced by your body.
What can PRP cure?
PRP injection is used to treat tendon rupture, tendonitis, muscle injuries, arthritis-related pain, and joint injuries.
Dermatologists use PRP injections to treat a type of hair loss called androgenic alopecia, also known as male or female pattern baldness, which affects both men and women. They offer PRP treatments for the face.
