PRP Therapy San Diego
We are leading provider of PRP Therapy San Diego. PRP therapy is the injection of your own Platelets-Rich Plasma, into the area that needs healing. Our bodies have the amazing ability to heal and function on their own without a lot of effort. After an injury, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy helps provide your body the healing boost it needs to repair these problems quickly, enabling you to go on in your daily life. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), extracted from the patient’s own blood, is rich with growth factors that stimulate the rejuvenation in the injected or applied area.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is naturally found in our blood. Human blood is made up of nearly 60% of plasma and 40% of blood cells. The plasma has the responsibility of clotting wounds and delivering vitamins and minerals to vital places within our body. Plasma also includes our body’s natural cytokines and growth hormones. These essential elements high in platelet-rich plasma help the healing process and repair.
Research results have proven that platelet-rich plasma therapy is a highly effective medical procedure in tendon repair, muscle, and joint injury as well as rejuvenation of skin, hair follicles, acne, and enhancement of sexual performance. At Allurant Aesthetics, a leading provider of PRP injections in San Diego, we use the most up to date techniques in PRP Treatment to address physical conditions that are hard to treat or have not responded to other traditional medical treatments.
How does PRP therapy work?
Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP therapy is administered through injections. Platelets are blood cells that play several roles in our body. They promote blood clotting to ensure that we will not excessively bleed if we are cut. Platelets also contain growth factors that help wounds to heal.
Researchers believe that by injection of high concentrations of platelets in the regions of injury or inflammation can stimulate wounds to heal.
A small amount of blood is drawn from the arm of the person who is being treated. The blood is then placed into a specialized centrifuge that spins at a very high speed separating platelets from other blood cells. The extracted platelets are then transferred into a syringe and injected into the treated area.
As the PRP injection holds a high concentration of platelets, much greater than the untreated blood, the platelets will speed up healing.
