Platelet Rich Plasma
If you’re suffering from pain due to illness or injury, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a non-surgical solution for all-natural pain relief. Our doctor has successfully treated patients in Columbia County and Green County with conditions that are just like yours.
PRP treatments are also administered for aesthetic purposes to renew the skin, improve elasticity, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. No matter what symptoms you have, or what cosmetic results you’re interested in, our doctor in Hudson can help you improve your health and outlook with PRP treatments.
Platelet-rich plasma injections are a form of regenerative therapy that helps your body heal naturally. After drawing some of your blood, our doctor synthesizes the PRP injection. The small sample is spun to yield a high concentration of platelets. That platelet-rich plasma is then injected into the site of your injury or damaged tissue in order to accelerate your body’s healing. PRP injections contain a rich solution of platelets, growth factors, proteins, and other healing agents.
When introduced at the site of an injury, they all get to work healing tissues, renewing cells, and influencing other regenerative cells to help. When used for cosmetic treatments, such as the Vampire Facelift, PRP is targeted in areas of facial imperfection that you want to treat. By injecting the platelet-rich formula under your skin, the naturally occurring proteins will reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. They also stimulate your skin to produce newer, younger skin cells for a more even skin tone and refreshed look.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy
When your body sustains an injury, it releases a chemical that alerts and activates healing processes. Platelet-rich plasma therapy helps amplify that activation, allowing your body to heal faster and more efficiently. The primary task of your healing platelets is to repair the damaged cells in your body, thereby alleviating your pain. Due to the increased presence of growth factors and platelets at the site of an injury, PRP therapy is an effective, long-lasting treatment that helps your body restore the structure of a damaged area and return your body to optimal function.
PRP treatments are a safe and effective alternative to surgery. Since treatments use samples of your own blood to help renew damaged tissue, your body will not reject PRP injections. PRP treatment is used for multiple conditions, including:
- Knee and ankle injuries
- Sciatica and back pain
- Torn ligaments
- Muscle tears
- Elbow pain
- Hip pain
- Shoulder pain
- Joint pain
PRP treatments will help reduce your pain, boost your body’s ability to heal naturally, and improve your recovery time. Our goal is to get you back to a healthy lifestyle so that you can enjoy your activities, return to work, and live pain-free. Call our office in Hudson today for a complimentary consultation.
