PRP is PLATELET RICH PLASMA – the newest “wrinkle” in wrinkle reduction, is the most advanced procedure used to increase collagen production and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. PRP is your own plasma, platelets, stem cells and growth factors concentrated and reapplied to your skin to reduce wrinkles, fine lines, large pores, acne scars, chicken pox scars, lax skin – even stretch marks!
First we draw a small amount of your blood and spin it down in a high-powered centrifuge to separate out the Platelet Rich Plasma. We then take the liquid gold PRP and injected it with small tiny needles on the face.
Benefits Of PRP Treatments
The PRP procedure is perfect for those who prefer to have a more natural improvement in their skin with very little risk of complications. Patients can begin to see improvements in the health and youthful appearance of their skin in the first four weeks with increased benefits over the next 3 months. The benefits can last for years. PRP treatments are used for reduction of:
Fine lines, bags and wrinkles around the eyes
Creases on the forehead
Loose or saggy skin
Neck and chest wrinkles
Scars including acne scars
PRP injection delivers a high concentration of endogenous (your own home-grown) platelets to the knee where osteoarthritis is present. Blood is composed of plasma, red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. It's these platelets that are the injury's "first responders" and help revascularize in injured area, construct new tissue, and stop the bleeding.
Because platelets play a significant role in the healing of tissue, reintroducing a high concentration of platelets directly into the injured area may enhance the healing process.
PRP for BONE on BONE Knees
In new research arthroscopic surgeons are told that:
PRP injections offers better symptomatic relief to patients with early knee degenerative changes, and it's use should be considered in patients with knee osteoarthritis.
The articular cartilage is the tough tissue that covers the ends of bones. In the knee, lesions or tears are very common. If the lesions go all the way through the bone it is called a full-thickness lesion.
The typical method of repairing this injury is surgery. However articular cartilage lesions, despite the surgical recommendations, represents one of the major unsolved problems in orthopedic surgery.
Insurance still considers this procedure experimental and most insurance will not cover it. We can provide you with notes and you can submit them to your insurance to see if they will reimburse you for the procedure.
PRP for the Knees
Why has the use of Platelet Rich Plasma therapy for knee osteoarthirits seen a dramatic increase in the past few years? Because researchers are showing that PRP can regenerate tissue in patients suffering from knee osteoarthirits and PRP can also enhance healing after ligament reconstruction, a journal devoted to obviously anthroscoyp, surgeons are told that PRP offeres better symptomatic relief to patients with early knee degenerative changes ( than hyaluronic acid or placebo), and it's use should be considered in patients with knee osteoarthritis.
