Platelet Rich Plasma treatment is becoming more and more popular in Oklahoma City and elsewhere, and for good reason. Find out what PRP is and what advantages it can offer you when you are dealing with skin issues and/or thinning hair.
What is PRP Therapy?
Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP as it is known in the medical arena, is a therapy that utilizes blood and platelets drawn from a patient’s own body. During Platelet Rich Plasma treatment at our office in Oklahoma City, blood is taken from the patient and is then put through a process known as centrifugation. This process separates the platelets from other cells in the blood. The platelets are then used to create a plasma solution that can be used to treat a host of issues, including common skin complaints and hair loss.
This therapy has proven itself an effective replacement for invasive treatments in many instances because it utilizes the patient’s platelets, which contribute directly to clotting and healing. The plasma solution that we create from the person’s own blood contains many times the amount of platelets found in a normal blood draw. Thus, Platelet Rich Plasma treatment has many benefits when used for skin rejuvenation and hair restoration, as the PRP solution promotes natural growth.
How is Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment Performed?
Once the Platelet Rich Plasma solution has been created at our office in Oklahoma City, it is skillfully used in the patient’s affected area. It can take some time for the patient to notice improvement in the skin or region of the scalp.
Platelet Rich Plasma treatment is much less invasive than hair grafts and other forms of hair restoration. Many people are able to resume their normal activities on the same day as the treatment. Further, there is little risk of rejection of the platelets because they are derived directly from the patient’s own body. People spend less time recovering and notice improvements in their skin or hair faster than if they were to go through surgery for the same conditions.
