What is PRP Therapy?

prp treatment

PRP treatment is among the most exciting advances in regenerative medicine.  At Advanced Regenerative Therapies in Buford, GA, this treatment is offered as a way to heal the difficult areas of the body, such as the joints and muscles, without any downtime or surgery.  PRP can also be used to address hair loss, improve both female and male sexual health, and so much more.

So, how long does PRP treatment take?  The amount of time that this therapy takes to make a difference varies depending on the healing capacities of your body as well as the extent of your problem. Your age also determines how fast you can see results from this treatment. Even though PRP supercharges your natural healing abilities, someone else who is naturally a faster healer can see speeder results from the same PRP therapy, assuming all other factors are equal.

PRP therapy uses your own blood to heal you.  It starts with a simple blood draw, after which the blood is put in a centrifuge that separates various components if the blood depending on molecular weight.  The concentrated platelets are taken and injected into the area of the body that requires treatment.

Your body has a lot of natural agents that can repair damaged tissues, but some tissues are difficult for those agents to reach. Ligaments and joints, for instance, do not have as many blood vessels as a muscle.  Because the healing agents make use of the circulatory system to get around, it takes them a while before they reach and heal a joint compared to a muscle that is rich in blood vessels. PRP helps speed up the healing in these places be injecting concentrated platelets in the specific area where healing is needed.
