All You Need To Know About PRP

PRP, also known as platelet-rich plasma, is gaining immense popularity in a variety of conditions from joint pains, and anti-aging to hair loss. PRP therapy uses your own blood to extract cells that promote growth and accelerate healing in specific areas. 

PRP Santa Monica facility is well-equipped that focuses on providing anti-aging and regenerative therapy using PRP for several aesthetic and medical purposes. 

What is PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma or PRP, consists of two elements namely plasma (liquid portion of the blood), and platelets (a type of blood cell). This plays a key role in healing throughout your body. PRP contains growth factors that trigger cell reproduction, and stimulate tissue regeneration or healing in the targeted areas. 

PRP is extracted from your blood sample which is placed in a device called a centrifuge that rapidly spins, separating the other components of the blood from the platelets, and concentrating them within the plasma. PRP intensifies your body’s natural repair process to achieve the desired results. 

What Medical Conditions Benefit From PRP?

PRP is effectively used to treat several painful conditions. The PRP shots help to heal the underlying cause of your pain. 

Painful conditions that benefit from PRP include:

  • Acute or chronic pain in the knee, neck, shoulder, and hip
  • Ankle and foot pain
  • Lower back pain
  • Sacroiliac (SI) joint pain

PRP injections alleviate the symptoms and prevent the need for invasive surgical treatment. 

What Aesthetic Conditions Benefit From PRP?

PRP offers anti-aging benefits, thus it is used in the following aesthetic treatments:

  • PRP facial
    • PRP is directly applied to your face and tiny needles are injected into the targeted areas (microneedling) so that PRP can penetrate deeper into your skin tissues. 
    • The growth factors boost collagen production, restoring your skin’s elasticity and youthful look. 
  • Hair loss treatment
    • PRP is gaining momentum in hair loss treatment where it is injected into the hair-thinning areas of the scalp.
    • The dormant hair follicles are activated for hair regrowth. It greatly improves the quality, thickness, texture, and strength of your hair.

Can PRP Improve Your Sexual Health?

PRP has proven to be a great remedy to improve sexual health and well-being in both men and women. It is used in the following treatment:

  • Vaginal revitalisation
    • It is a non-invasive procedure that enhances women’s sexual well-being. 
    • The PRP is directly injected into the clitoris and the vagina.
  • Penis shot
    • PRP is injected into the shaft and head of the penis.
    • It stimulates the formation of new blood vessels and nerve endings to elevate sexual health and function.
