You’re in pain but don’t want to take prescription painkillers or undergo surgery. Maybe you’re unhappy with the way your skin is starting to sag and wrinkle but don’t want to go under the knife to get your youthful glow back. No matter what aches, pains, or flaws you’re looking to tackle, there’s a natural and effective option for you.
Our team of professionals at Glow Up Aesthetics, in Kalamazoo, Michigan, specializes in treating what ails you through PRP therapy.
The science behind PRP therapy
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, therapy is a form of regenerative medicine. Regenerative medicine uses blood and tissues that are already in your body or donated to you to help your body regenerate its own tissue and heal naturally.
In the case of PRP therapy, we take platelets from your own blood to alleviate your pain and smooth the look of your skin.
Your blood is made up of a few different components: red blood cells that carry oxygen, white blood cells that fight infections, and platelets that contribute to blood clotting and the healing process.
All of these parts of your blood float around in a thick liquid substance called plasma. The plasma is responsible for transporting elements through your system and helping your platelets clot and heal. Your platelets and plasma are what we use to attack your problems.
To get these important cells, we take a sample of your blood and put it in a machine called a centrifuge. This machine spins at a high rate and separates your platelets and plasma from the other components in your blood.
We take that concentrated solution of your own healing ingredients and inject it directly into the areas you want treated.
Why PRP therapy is so effective
There are lots of reasons why more and more people are seeking PRP therapy instead of conventional treatments like medications or surgery. Here are just a few of the reasons we think PRP therapy is effective:
Whether you’re frustrated by an injury that won’t heal or feeling the painful effects old age has on your tissues, muscles, and joints, PRP therapy is right for you. When we inject the solution directly into the areas that hurt most, it works to reduce inflammation and promote fast, natural healing.
PRP therapy is also great for cosmetic issues. When your skin becomes saggy and wrinkly, it’s because you’ve lost an important element called collagen. Collagen is what supports your skin and gives it that youthful bounce and smoothness. Injecting PRP stimulates your body’s natural reaction to produce collagen so your skin starts to look younger, tighter, and unwrinkled.
It’s all natural
The worst part about getting injured or developing wrinkles is deciding which medications to take and which side effects you’ll eventually have to deal with. With PRP therapy, you don’t have to make any of those decisions.
Because PRP comes directly from your own body, you’re not likely to reject it. You’re also much less likely to experience side effects that can come with taking prescription medications.
Say goodbye to cosmetic, replacement, or other corrective surgeries that require downtime. PRP therapy requires only that you receive an injection. We don’t just inject PRP anywhere; we’re able to pinpoint exactly where the injection needs to go. That makes the therapy that much more effective.
No matter what’s bothering you, you don’t have to compromise other parts of your health to find healing. Opt for PRP therapy with our experts instead. Call our office or schedule an appointment online to get started.
