PRP Q&A

by Aref Karbasi, MD

 What is PRP?

Platelet-Rich Plasma, or PRP, therapy is a new treatment approach that enhances the platelet count in your own blood to treat a variety of conditions caused by damaged cartilage, tissue, tendons, ligaments, muscles or bones. Blood is extracted from a patient and the different components including platelets and plasma are separated. The platelets are placed in a centrifuge, and their concentration is increased exponentially. Then the platelets are injected into the treatment area to improve the body’s natural healing process.

How is PRP used on the face?

PRP is now being used by doctors to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles, correct sun damage and scarring, and even reduce the appearance of under-eye circles. Popularized as the “Vampire Facelift,” this procedure stimulates collagen productions for firmer, smoother, younger-looking facial skin. If you are interested in this safe, minimally invasive facial treatment, contact our office.

How is PRP used for the joints?

PRP has also been demonstrated to improve the symptoms of joint pain, or osteoarthritis. When platelet-rich plasma is injected directly into the affected area, patients have experienced less pain, greater joint functioning and decreased the progression of cartilage damage. If you are interested in Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy for joint conditions, schedule an appointment with Dr. Karbasi today.

How is PRP used for hair loss?

PRP has also been used for hair restoration, helping patients achieve amazingly natural-looking results. Injecting PRP into the scalp offers a variety of benefits, including a safe and reliable alternative to surgery, a quick recovery period, and the stimulation of natural hair growth. PRP hair restoration has been used to promote hair growth in both men and women. If you are suffering from a lack of confidence due to hair loss, call your doctor to see if this procedure is right for you.

PRP therapies are revolutionary treatment options designed to address a variety of conditions. Call to schedule an appointment with Dr. Karbasi to go over your options for this safe and reliable procedure.
