What is PRP therapy?
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, therapy uses a sample of your own blood for healing. Your provider at Renew Total Body Wellness Center obtains the blood in a simple, conventional blood draw and processes it in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets and remove red blood cells. Platelets contain tremendous growth and healing factors to boost cell regeneration and health in areas that need particular attention. PRP contains three to five times the normal concentration of platelets and growth factors that are used in the body’s own healing process.
The human body is designed to heal itself. Platelets play a big role in this self-healing. As you age, the numbers and function of your healing factors begin to decrease, so it takes longer to repair and restore. PRP therapy amplifies your healing rate. When PRP is injected, healing cells multiply and help grow healthier tissue.
Do PRP injections have any side effects?
PRP doesn’t cause side effects because it’s derived from your own blood. Your body won’t react negatively or reject it because it’s made from your own blood.
What are the uses of PRP therapy?
The team at Renew Total Body Wellness Center uses PRP for a number of different healing applications. These include:
Both men and women benefit from PRP injections to improve sexual function. Women experience improved arousal and ability to orgasm. Men can achieve greater length and girth and improved circulation, so erections are better maintained and stronger.
Injections of PRP in the area under the urethra build collagen, a compound that boosts the strength and elasticity of tissue. This can help decrease or minimize urine loss that occurs with stress, such as exercise, coughing, or even laughing.
PRP can stimulate new collagen growth to rejuvenate aging skin. Collagen gives your skin elasticity and strength, but as it diminishes with age, you get sagging and wrinkles. PRP treatments help restore tautness, so you look younger. It can also help with the treatment of acne scars.
Osteoarthritis and joint injuries
If you experience a sports injury or general wear-and-tear or arthritis at places like your knees, hips, or elbows, PRP can help. Joints don’t heal quite well as they have a poor blood supply, so they don’t get the oxygen and nutrients necessary for repair.
