PRP(Platelet-Rich Plasma) Sudbury
There are a number of cosmetic techniques on the market. Some, like Botox, have become a household name. There are also cutting-edge techniques that many people do not yet know about but are gaining rapidly in popularity. One of these exciting new techniques is known as PRP therapy.
What Is PRP Therapy?
PRP therapy is a groundbreaking technique that involves the use of PRP, or platelet-rich plasma. This plasma is a part of your blood and is made up of proteins that aid your blood in clotting. Some of the proteins in the plasma are extremely effective in promoting and supporting healthy cell growth.
Thanks to amazing medical breakthroughs and development over the years, scientists have found a way to isolate the plasma cells from the blood and use them to form a concentrated substance: PRP.
For PRP therapy, a very small amount of blood is taken from the patient, typically around two teaspoons. After this step, the platelet-rich plasma is separated from the blood using a centrifuge. Because this substance comes directly from the patient, there is no risk of an allergic reaction from the treatment.
What Can PRP Therapy Be Used For?
PRP therapy is most frequently used to address signs of facial aging. With aging, the skin becomes dull and rough, loses volume, and develops wrinkles. To restore a rosy and youthful glow, make the skin smoother, plump the skin, and ease away wrinkles, we offer PRP treatments.
The growth factors in a PRP treatment encourage skin-cell healing. PRP also contains signaling protein. This protein encourages cell communication, which helps in the creation of new elastin and collagen protein. The more elastin and collagen your skin has, the healthier it is.
The PRP is delivered in the form of injections in the trouble areas of the skin. These injections can also be used to revitalize the neck and the undereye areas.
We can also use PRP therapy to prevent hair loss and promote the growth of healthy new hair. Hair loss is something unfortunate that many of us deal with at some point in our lives. We might have the perfect life, the perfect job, the perfect social circle, and the perfect family situation. But somehow, we find ourselves thinking about the hair loss we’ve been experiencing and how thin that makes our hair look. This can hit you especially hard if you’ve always had thick hair.
Hair loss is something that happens because of many different factors. It may be because of the water you’re using to wash it or the pollution in the environment. It may be because you dyed your hair a different color and the bleach reached your roots. There are many reasons behind why you might be experiencing hair loss.
To treat hair loss, PRP injections are administered into the scalp. The growth factors in PRP encourage hair follicles to regrow hair. PRP injections are especially effective when it comes to treating androgenic alopecia, also known as male-pattern baldness.
