Improve the Appearance of Sagging Skin Tissue
An important aspect of platelet-rich plasma treatment at Lifeboost is that Dr. Stratt uses a patient’s own blood in a fast office procedure. After arriving for a procedure such as a Vampire Facelift, Dr. Stratt removes a small amount of blood from a patient’s veins. The blood is placed in a centrifuge for processing that requires approximately 10 minutes. This process releases natural growth factors in the blood platelets that the human body creates to heal injured tissue. With a thin-needled syringe, Dr. Stratt injects this processed blood back into a patient’s neck, face or breast tissue to encourage blood flow and new collagen production in the underlying tissues. The needle injection does not hurt because Dr. Stratt uses a numbing cream on the skin before the treatment. This process works to rejuvenate the treated area by making the patient’s body think there is an injury that requires natural repair. Over the next three months, patients see gradual improvements in the texture of their face, neck or breasts, and the results last for one to two years.
Reduce the Discomfort from an Orthopedic Injury
Platelet-rich plasma from a PRP doctor Boca Raton expert is also helpful for orthopedic injuries that are the result of aging or trauma. Dr. Stratt has an extensive understanding of bone structure and surrounding tissues, leading to using platelet-rich plasma to treat injuries to the knees, feet and shoulders. A patient’s own blood is used after the centrifuge process to inject into an area of the body that has incurred an injury. The healing properties in the processed blood will encourage faster healing of inflamed tendons, muscles and cartilage for someone who has experienced an injury while playing sports or after a fall. Orthopedic PRP therapy is especially helpful for chronic problems in the feet, ankles and back.
Encourage Hair Growth with Platelet-Rich Plasma Treatments
Anyone losing their hair due to aging, disease or heredity can benefit from injections of platelet-rich plasma. Both women and men can suffer from hair loss that leads to an aged appearance and often reduces an individual’s self-esteem. Instead of using smelly shampoos and conditioners with chemicals that can cause unusual side effects, visit Dr. Stratt for treatment with platelet-rich plasma injections. Most hair restoration methods require a surgical procedure that is time-consuming and painful along with requiring taking time off from work for recovery. A PRP doctor Boca Raton expert can use a patient’s own blood to create platelet-rich plasma that is injected into several locations on the scalp to encourage hair growth.
