Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
Heal damaged tissue using your body's own blood platelets.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy is a advanced medical treatment that harnesses the healing qualities of platelets to stimulate tissue repair. This innovative technique involves drawing a small amount of blood from the patient and then separating the platelets using a centrifuge machine. The concentrated platelet-rich plasma is then administered through an injection back into the affected area by a qualified medical professional.
PRP Therapy has gained popularity across various specialties due to its ability to alleviate various conditions including sports injuries, acne scars, osteoarthritis, tendinitis, and even hair loss. The platelets in the injected PRP help kick-start the body’s natural healing response by releasing various growth factors and proteins that promote tissue repair and regeneration.
As with any medical procedure, it is essential to consult with a qualified medical physician like Dr. Raj to determine if Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) is suitable and safe for you. Dr Raj will consider your unique circumstances and discuss potential benefits as well as any associated risks or limitations.Expand
