PRP Therapy Q & A
What is platelet-rich plasma?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a solution created from a small volume of your own blood. It combines your blood platelets and plasma's blood clotting powers and growth factors into a highly concentrated form.
PRP therapy is a form of regenerative medicine because treatments amplify your body’s innate healing abilities. This technology has long been used in orthopedic and sports medicine, and it has a lengthy track record of safety and efficacy.
PRP therapy is a great way to achieve noticeable results without invasive procedures in the hands of skilled medical professionals. It is important to ensure that the provider you choose for any PRP service has the skills, education, and training necessary to perform these procedures.
What are some benefits of PRP therapy?
PRP therapy offers a treatment approach that is natural and free of pharmaceuticals. Because the solution is created from your own cells, there is no risk that your body will reject the therapy. There is also no risk of side effects or addiction, which are concerns linked to many types of drug therapy.
Injections of PRP deliver the following benefits:
- Reduce inflammation
- Promote new tissue growth
- Increase circulation
- Boosts natural healing ability
- PRP Therapy for Joints
PSI Medical Group offers in-house PRP injections to treat hair loss, as well as male and female sexual health issues. For example, the O-Shot® and P-Shot® are treatments made with PRP technology to enhance sexual function.
What is the process for getting PRP therapy?
The process begins with a simple blood draw, similar to having blood taken for lab work. The sample is placed in a centrifuge device and spun at a high rate of speed. The resulting force separates the solid components of blood from the liquid plasma.
The platelets are then collected and reintroduced to the cleared plasma. The solution is drawn into a syringe and is ready to be administered via injection.
When treating hair loss, PRP injections are placed across the scalp. The solution stimulates hair follicle activity and reduces inflammation in the area. PRP can be used on its own or in conjunction with hair implants.
In sexual health applications, PRP is injected into the penis, clitoris, or vagina to promote new tissue development and address problems like erectile dysfunction or vaginal dryness.
