PRP has been used in sports therapy for ages, but it’s gotten a lot of traction in the world of cosmetics in recent years. Those unfamiliar with the treatment are rightfully skeptical; it’s hard to believe that you can use your own blood to enhance skin health and appearance. But make no mistake, PRP does work, and it provides a staggering number of benefits to the skin and the rest of the body. Below, we’ll take a look at just a few of PRP’s biggest benefits.
As anyone experiencing hair loss may know, it is incredibly difficult to restore fullness to the hair. PRP is a natural solution that has shown more promising results than other treatment options. The PRP stimulates hair follicle activity, triggering hair growth that is healthier and fuller than before.
When injected into the skin as an anti-aging treatment, PRP stimulates collagen and elastin production. This leads to improvements in skin tone, skin volume, skin texture and overall skin health. With these benefits, there are dozens of cosmetic concerns that can be addressed with PRP.
One of the first uses of PRP was to help patients recover following surgical procedures. In these cases, PRP can be injected into tendons, ligaments and muscles to accelerate the healing process. Patients may choose to combine plastic surgery procedures with PRP injections to achieve these benefits.
PRP is also proven to benefit patients with cases of joint inflammation and pain. Patients suffering from osteoarthritis can receive PRP injections into the joint, where the growth factors will soothe inflammation and aid the body’s healing processes.
