After your cells, tissue and organs are cleansed and purified, your body kick-starts its own repair process to help heal and regain proper condition and function.
Platelet-rich plasma therapy (Integrative Solution for your Health and Beauty)
WHAT IS PRP THERAPY?
Platelet-rich plasma therapy is a process whereby blood is drawn from the patient’s body in a manner similar to that of a blood test, which is then placed in a machine that separates the blood cells, platelets and serum. This is then re-injected into the area of the body requiring treatment or rejuvenation and is sometimes referred to as ‘Vampire’ or ‘Dracula’ therapy.
The platelets are best known for their importance in clotting blood. However, platelets also contain hundreds of proteins called growth factors which are very important in the healing of injuries.
PRP is plasma with many more platelets than what is typically found in blood. The concentration of platelets — and, thereby, the concentration of growth factors — can be 5 to 10 times greater (or richer) than usual.
The platelets help the body to repair itself by releasing growth factors by stimulating the skin cells to generate new tissue, in addition to improving skin tone as well as the rate of collagen production. This helps the skin grow back healthily, appearing more vibrant and plump.
Depending on the individual, your doctor will recommend 2-3 treatments spaced 2 weeks apart, but this may vary.

Many famous athletes — Tiger Woods, tennis star Rafael Nadal, and several others — have received PRP for various problems, such as sprained knees and chronic tendon injuries. These types of conditions have typically been treated with medications, physical therapy, or even surgery. Some athletes have credited PRP with their being able to return more quickly to competition
Postsurgical repair: Sometimes doctors use PRP injections after surgery to repair a torn tendon (such as a rotator cuff tendon in the shoulder) or ligaments (such as the anterior cruciate ligament, or ACL).
Osteoarthritis: Doctors have injected PRP into the knees of people with osteoarthritis. A 2015 study found that PRP injections were more effective than hyaluronic acid injections (a traditional therapy) for treating osteoarthritis.
