Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a safe and effective regenerative treatment for skin rejuvenation and treatment of chronic pain. This treatment accelerates your healing process so that you can return to your daily routine within no time. AdvancedMD Aesthetics of Atlanta providers offer Marietta PRP therapy to rejuvenate your skin and alleviate painful symptoms.
What is platelet-rich plasma (PRP)?
Platelet-rich plasma is a controversial therapy taking the medical field by storm because of its ability to relieve pain using your blood components. PRP is basically plasma with more concentrated platelets than what your blood contains. PRP injections use the platelets in your blood to stimulate the healing power of your body, reducing the recovery period.
The treatment is not yet proven, but the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved it as a therapy for painful health conditions. Due to its newness in the medical field, there is a potential for misuse and misunderstanding of PRP. The specialists at AdacancedMD Aesthetics of Atlanta have exceptional skills in administering PRP injections, guaranteeing minimal or no side effects.
Who can benefit from PRP injections?
PRP serves several critical functions in the medical field. The AdvancedMD Aesthetics of Atlanta specialists administer PRP injections for cosmetic concerns such as wrinkles and skin tone and medical concerns like chronic pain. The components of the injections promote cell growth, rejuvenating your decolletage, cheeks, neck, skin around the eyes, and hands. PRP injections allow you to achieve smooth, radiant skin without plastic surgery or cosmetic creams that don’t guarantee results. This treatment reduces the size of your pores, tightens your skin, and restores your youthful look. PRP can also restore even hair growth resulting from hair thinning or hair loss and baldness.
What are the common misleading myths about PRP?
Although PRP is a safe treatment, some people have heard misleading myths that may make them shy away from platelet-rich plasma. Some people believe that PRP is a risky treatment procedure. Your PRP is autologous, meaning that your body is unlikely to have negative side effects from the injections. Research also shows that no patient has complained about major or life-threatening complications.
Another myth is that PRP only addresses cosmetic concerns. You may already know that PRP therapy is an effective treatment for baldness and aging signs, but those are not the only benefits of PRP. This therapy also stimulates cell growth and accelerates your recovery, reducing the healing period.
What happens during your PRP therapy?
During your appointment at AdvancedMD Aesthetics of Atlanta, Dr. Rheaume draws a small blood sample to create a concentrated solution of platelets. She then places the sample into the centrifuge, separating the platelets from plasma. Your doctor uses your blood rather than a donor’s to prevent adverse reactions to the treatment. Afterward, she prepares your injection, containing the concentrated solution, before locating an appropriate place for the injections.
You can discuss your health and beauty goals with your doctor, who will help you achieve them. To explore the dramatic results of PRP therapy, call the Advanced MD Aesthetics of Atlanta or book your appointment online.
