Platelets, along with red and white blood cells, make up the structure of your blood. These molecules help your blood clot. They also contain numerous growth factors and healing agents that encourage tissue and organ healing.
PRP injections harness the power of platelets. The team takes a conventional blood draw from your arm and then spins the sample down in a special machine called a centrifuge. The process separates the red and white blood cells from the platelets, leaving PRP.
PRP injections contain a high concentration of platelets and can help improve your appearance, body function, and joint health.
Once the team at Atalla Medical Group creates your PRP, they inject it into areas that need healing. The injections can encourage hair growth when applied to the scalp or tissue healing when placed in an aching joint.
PRP injections increase blood flow to treated areas, relieve inflammation, and stimulate healing.
At Atalla Medical Group, the team uses PRP therapy for several aesthetic and medical applications, including:
PRP injections placed strategically on the scalp can increase blood flow to reactivate dormant follicles. After several treatments, you grow thicker, healthier hair.
PRP injections are a minimally invasive way to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, acne scars, and other minor skin imperfections. PRP injections encourage your body to produce more collagen and elastin –– proteins that keep your skin smooth, plump, and youthful.
PRP injected at the site of joint pain or an injury can accelerate healing. PRP may delay surgery or allow you to avoid it altogether. The team at Atalla Medical Group may use it to treat conditions including arthritis, tendinitis, sports injuries, or sprains.
The skin on your neck is prone to sagging and wrinkles. PRP injections encourage the skin on the neck to start making new collagen and revitalize cells, leading to improved tightness, tone, and texture.
