Breathe New Life Into Overworked Tissue With PRP Therapy

Soft-tissue injuries can really set you back. Whether you’ve got a sprained ankle, a strained muscle, or an inflamed tendon, this type of injury gets in the way. It forces you to slow down — literally — as you wait for your body to heal. And if you’re a busy or active person, that can be a problem. 

That’s why Peymon Zarreii, MD, offers platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy at our Zarreii Medical and Aesthetics office in Delray Beach, Florida. With this treatment, he can speed your body’s ability to heal itself, helping overworked tissue bounce back faster. 

What’s more, this treatment is quick, convenient, and minimally invasive. If you think PRP therapy might be right for you, read on.

Deriving PRP to harness your body’s healing power

PRP is extremely safe because it’s made from your own blood. This treatment starts when Dr. Zarreii takes a very small sample of your blood. He puts it in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the other components of your blood, deriving the PRP. 

PRP therapy is effective because it gives Dr. Zarreii the ability to apply a high volume of platelets to a targeted area. Whenever you get hurt, your body sends platelets to the area. They help your blood clot and deliver growth factors, which are proteins that stimulate and support regeneration in the area. 

Applying PRP to overworked tissue gives it more of what it needs to repair itself, reducing your pain, minimizing inflammation, and helping you get back on your feet faster. During this treatment, Dr. Zarreii injects the PRP into your overworked tissue, flooding it with platelets to help it heal faster. 

Uses for PRP

Because PRP therapy triggers healing in your body, it’s a versatile treatment. It can be used to address a wide range of soft-tissue injuries, including:

It’s extremely effective at treating overuse injuries, or injuries you get from repetitive motion that puts a strain on your tissue. These injuries can be particularly challenging to heal because they require rest in order for your tissue to have the opportunity to repair itself. If you don’t want to rest because you don’t want to lose your ability to perform certain tasks or do things you love, this is frustrating.

Fortunately, with PRP therapy, Dr. Zarreii can give your overworked tissue what it needs to heal faster. 

PRP is versatile

PRP isn’t just touted for its ability to heal injuries. It’s also effective at stimulating hair growth and skin rejuvenation. In fact, Dr. Zarreii offers these aesthetic PRP treatments here at our office. If you want a fuller head of hair or more radiant, younger-looking skin, don’t hesitate to ask us about these treatment options.
