What is Platelet-Rich Plasma?

Cutting Edge Healing

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a therapy that uses your own cells to quickly heal and repair. It has been used by plastic and facial surgeons for more that 20 years.  The growth factors in PRP have been shown to help improve skin tone, reduce acne scarring, and to even thicken and regrow hair.  It has most recently been used for surgical tendon repair and for sports-related conditions involving acute muscle injury and chronic tendon problems.  PRP is a small portion of the blood that is composed of a high concentration of platelets, which have the ability to help the body heal itself.

If you have an injury that hasn’t healed, or are looking for an alternative to surgery for either aesthetics or injury, PRP may be the answer you are looking for.

At Elixia Wellness we offer PRP therapies for both aesthetics and injuries. For more information about these therapies, click on the boxes below.
