PRP therapy is a non-surgical approach to heal damaged skin and tissue. When administered into the site of an injury, PRP’s natural substances and proteins work to enhance the body’s natural reparative process. PRP helps restore damaged cells and tissue through all-natural growth properties.
During your treatment, a sample of blood is withdrawn from you through a very fine needle, similar to an ordinary doctor’s visit. This sample is then spun in a centrifuge for several minutes where components of the blood will begin to separate. Blood plasma will bond with various growth properties within the sample, creating the PRP solution.
PRP therapy is a highly effective approach to treating muscle injuries, surgical wounds, and even counteracting signs of aging in the skin such as wrinkles.
Since the PRP solution is created within a sample of the patient’s own blood, there is no risk of rejection, harsh side effects, or allergic reaction. In essence, PRP therapy is perhaps one of the safer methods of treatment out there!
PRP therapy may be an ideal means of treatment for you if you are experiencing non-fatal injuries in the shoulder, knee, hip, wrist, hand, elbow, foot, or elsewhere. Additionally, PRP therapy can serve as an all-natural anti-aging solution to combat wrinkles and uneven skin texture. Dr. Goddard and his team can determine if PRP therapy may be right for you during your consultation.
