Patrizia shares with us her knowledge of platelet rich plasma treatment available at PR Medica in Los Cabos, Mexico: San Jose & Cabo San Lucas.
The restorative properties of platelet rich plasma treatment are popular with patients looking for an alternative to treatments that use foreign substances, surgical or highly invasive procedures.
What is platelet rich plasma?
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a powerful growth substance obtained from a person’s own blood. When reintroduced to the body, it can be an effective method to stimulate your body’s natural growth processes for tissue regrowth. You may consider a treatment with PRP for:
- PRP facial rejuvenation
- PRP hair restoration
- PRP sexual enhancement
- PRP orthopaedic treatment
PRP is used to address aesthetic concerns and minimize the signs of aging. It may also be used to stimulate hair growth and rejuvenate sexual arousal. PRP can be also used as an injection for orthopedic concerns by stimulating tissue regrowth to reduce pain and enhance mobility.
What to expect from treatment?
Platelet rich plasma treatment starts with harvesting PRP. While this may sound intimidating, it is a relatively simple process.
- A traditional blood draw will be performed, and the sample is then spun in a special centrifuge. This centrifuge isolates the golden plasma substance and it is prepared for an injection.
- Once PRP is obtained, it is delivered to a treatment area in a variety of methods. It may be administered via injection, or in combination with a micro needling device. This treatment causes minimal discomfort.
- PRP treatment results vary for each person. However, it is important to know it may take some time to see initial results as your body responds to the growth factors. A series of treatments may be recommended to achieve the best results.
Who is a good candidate?
One of the most exciting aspects of PRP is how many people may be able to benefit from this treatment option. As it uses substances obtained from your own body, this helps reduce risks associated with treatment and makes it a good choice for most generally healthy adults.
PRMedica is your best choice for PRP treatment, along with many others like Ozone Therapy, Chelation, IV Infusions (Myers Cocktail), Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, Health Check Ups, etc.
