The body has incredible rejuvenation powers for healing and tissue repair. When certain biological regenerative elements are harvested and concentrated, they can be used to stimulate tissue rejuvenation in targeted areas as a non-surgical treatment. Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is one of these elements that can be used both for medical and cosmetic tissue repair. At Precision Medical Specialists, we offer cutting-edge platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments at our facility in Wellington, FL.
What Is PRP
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is derived from your blood. A sample of blood is extracted from a vein, and our medical team filters the blood through a centrifuge. Platelets are separated from the blood, creating the PRP that has high concentrates of growth factors and other regenerative agents for tissue repair. Once the PRP is sterilized, it can be injected into tissue to stimulate collagen product and tissue repair.
One of the uses for PRP in cosmetic treatments is the PRP facial. PRP can be injected into the skin to stimulate collagen production and tissue repair to slow the aging process. The PRP facial can minimize lines and wrinkles while helping to firm aging skin. PRP is often combined with microneedling for a synergistic effect to combat the signs of aging with enhanced collagen induction.
PRP for Hair Loss
Another cosmetic benefit of PRP is for hair loss. PRP injections into the scalp can repair hair follicles and stimulate hair growth for thinning or receding hair. The procedure is safe with no side effects – PRP does not cause any adverse reactions since it is derived from the patient’s own blood.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments are just one of the many cosmetic procedures we offer at Precision Medical Specialists that can help you look your best at any age. PRP injections for anti-aging facials or hair loss are minimally invasive with no downtime needed.
