Platelet Rich Plasma: Orthopedic Care
If you are suffering from chronic joint pain, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy may be able to help. PRP therapy utilizes your own blood to target inflammation in your body and help repair damaged soft tissue. PRP treatment for orthopedic concerns is quick, effective, minimally evasive, and essentially painless.
Your body has the incredible ability to heal itself, and PRP therapy helps unlock that ability, increase its efficacy, and speed up the process. Platelet Rich Plasma is a viscous, golden-colored material created from your own blood. It is injected into the desired area of repair and stimulates the body’s natural reparative abilities with little to no pain or downtime. At Mediworks Rejuvenation Centre, we typically recommend 2-3 treatments every 4 weeks, depending on the severity of the injury.
PRP therapy has gained national media attention as professional athletes from the MLS, NHL, NBA, PGA, and NBA have recognized its benefits. PRP therapy has many benefits including minimal risk, brief recovery time, targeted and accelerated healing, rapid results with long-term benefits, and very few contraindications. If you are suffering from ligament strains, rotator cuff injuries, plantar fasciitis, tendonitis, ligament sprains, muscle strain, or general joint paint, PRP therapy may be able to help. If you think PRP therapy may be right for you, please call Mediworks Rejuvenation Centre to schedule a consultation today.
PRP Hair Rejuvenation Treatment
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a proactive, therapeutic hair rejuvenation system designed to help restore your confidence by regenerating lost or thinning hair. PRP uses your body’s own natural repair process to boost the growth of hair follicle stem cells. The PRP system is optimized to treat the classic signs of hair loss by stimulating the growth phase of inactive or recently transplanted hair follicles, helping to create a revitalized hair root foundation to grow a thicker and healthier head of hair.
How it works
The PRP system uses your own blood to isolate plasma, where a concentrate of nutrients and platelets reside. Platelets are cells that naturally assist your body in healing and generating new tissue. Platelets also contain Growth Factors, which are involved in stem cell migration, and ultimately activate, rejuvenate and regenerate cells throughout the body. By isolating the platelet-rich portion of your blood and injecting it back into target regions, you are able to fight the signs of lost or thinning hair using your body’s natural biology.
Since Growth Factors in PRP are known to actively stimulate the proliferation of stem cells throughout the body, the growth and survival of the hair roots may be increased by prolonging the growth phase of the hair cycle.
This may lead to higher success rates and longer-term results for regenerating your natural hair.
PRP takes time to facilitate this potential rejuvenation effect. Generally, results can be seen as soon as three to six months.
Multiple treatments may be necessary to obtain optimal results for your hair loss condition.
Consult your physician for realistic expectations regarding the specific reason(s) of your hair loss and the optimal number of treatments that may be necessary.
- A small of amount of blood is collected.
- The blood is then spun in a centrifuge to separate the different components (e.g., red blood cells, white blood cells and plasma).
- Once the blood has been separated, the plasma (PRP) is extracted from the tube.
- The PRP is injected into the desired treatment area.
Using PRP for rejuvenation of the hair follicle stem cells provides many advantages:
- Efficient and simple
- Little-to-no downtime
- Reduced risk of infection (non-allergenic)
- Personalized (genetic) treatment
- Treat multiple locations
