Your blood contains red blood cells, platelets, and the liquid known as plasma. Platelets have rich healing properties that are valuable for rejuvenating damaged tissue.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is blood that’s been spun down so the platelets are concentrated. When this PRP is injected into specific areas, it promotes healing.
The high concentration of platelets found in PRP repairs blood vessels, heals wounds, stimulates the production of collagen, and promotes cell growth. It also slows the growing phase of the hair cycle, thereby promoting hair growth.
The team at Kansas Medical Associates draw your blood and place it into a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets and plasma. The doctors then inject this PRP into areas in your scalp.
Injections are scheduled approximately three months apart and treatment continues for up to two years. The exact treatment plan schedule depends on several factors, including your hair loss pattern and age.
Women experience a number of sexual challenges, especially during menopause or immediately postpartum. PRP can help with many of them, including:
The PRP increases blood flow and cellular regeneration in the clitoris and vaginal wall, which can improve sexual function and experience. PRP treatment for sexual dysfunction requires no downtime — you can resume normal activities, including sex, almost immediately.
As you age, production of collagen — a skin-strengthening compound — slows, contributing to sagging, wrinkles, and fine lines. When the team at Kansas Medical Associates injects PRP into specific treatment areas in the face, it stimulates circulation and increases collagen production.
PRP uses your own blood, so there’s no risk of an allergic reaction or rejection. You may have mild soreness or bruising at the site of an injection, but these symptoms resolve within just a few days.
PRP therapy is quick and utilizes the power of your own body to help you heal, resist aging, rejuvenate your sex life, and regrow hair. Learn about the potential of PRP therapy by calling Kansas Medical Associates or making an online appointment.
