Our Charleston, Illinois medical center offers platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections to repair injuries and damage for all-natural pain relief. We also use PRP to reverse hair loss and for aesthetic enhancements. A cutting-edge, simple, non-surgical procedure, PRP treatment is a safe foundation for most of your pain relief and cosmetic needs.
Platelet-rich plasma is a high concentration of your blood platelets compounded into a small volume of your plasma. Your blood contains platelets that are rich in bioactive chemicals called growth factors, which support tissue regeneration. Whenever any part of your body is damaged or injured, your platelets are some of the first cells attracted to the area. These platelets are one of your body’s most potent healers. PRP promotes healing around tissue damage and damage to blood vessels, by increasing blood flow to the affected body part and restoring normal function.
Platelet-rich plasma injections are formulated by collecting a small blood sample from you that is then processed in a special medical device to concentrate the platelets. The increased concentration of platelets is injected precisely at the site of injury or pain and areas needing regeneration.
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy
PRP therapy represents a significant medical advancement in regenerative medicine that allows you to get fast and effective pain relief while rebuilding your body’s tissues without surgery.
Platelet-rich plasma injections provide reliable results with no downtime and a rapid recovery period. PRP treatments are 100% natural, using your blood, so it’s safe, with minimal risk of complications and allergic reaction. Since the platelets are obtained from your body, there’s low risk of disease transmission through transfusion and hardly any chance of rejection.
