Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a non-surgical procedure that uses a small amount of blood drawn from the patient to promote healing and rejuvenation. The blood is placed on a centrifuge to separate the plasma and growth factors during the procedure. This plasma is then injected into the area of the body that needs treatment. This concentrated plasma is injected into targeted areas to stimulate natural healing and tissue regeneration. PRP is versatile and can treat various conditions, including hair loss, skin rejuvenation, and joint pain.

Platelet-rich plasma is suitable for individuals seeking a natural approach to healing and rejuvenation. It usually takes a few weeks for results to appear, and improvements may continue for several months as the body’s natural healing processes are activated. The longevity of the results varies by individual, but they can last from six months to a year. PRP treatments involve minimal downtime, making them convenient for those with busy schedules. For those in Atlanta, Lauderdale, Tupelo, and Miami, booking an appointment at Gentle Giant Care is a great way to get a refreshed appearance.
