How PRP Therapy Can Help You Heal Quickly

As medical science advances, you get access to more and more treatment options. But the most exciting ones don’t turn to synthetic substances. Instead, they use your body’s own healing power. 

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a prime example. With this naturally derived treatment, Dr. Peymon Zarreii helps patients at Zarreii Medical and Aesthetics heal faster from a range of injuries, conditions, and surgeries. 

Dr. Zarreii also offers PRP at our Delray Beach, Florida, office for hair loss and facial rejuvenation. But let’s focus on PRP’s regenerative power today. 

Here’s what you should know about this treatment. 

PRP stimulates and supports healing processes

PRP therapy starts with Dr. Zarreii taking a very small sample of your blood and placing it in a centrifuge. This way, he can separate the platelets from the other matter in your blood.

Your body naturally sends platelets to injury sites whenever you’re hurt. Platelets help your blood to clot, but they also deliver a specific substance called growth factors. Growth factors help your cells both heal and increase, meaning they support existing cells alongside your body’s production of new tissue where you need it. 

All of this happens over the course of a normal injury in your body. But by applying PRP therapy, Dr. Zarreii can flood the area with a high concentration of growth factors, kicking your body’s healing processes into high gear. The PRP signals to your body that healing is needed in the area while supporting that healing process.

How PRP can be used for you

Ultimately, if you’re looking for a way to heal as quickly as possible, PRP therapy delivers. Dr. Zarreii uses it for people with:

PRP therapy can also be a helpful tool if you’re recovering from surgery. 

What’s more, PRP isn’t just versatile. It’s also safe and convenient. The risk of side effects from PRP therapy is extremely small because the treatment uses your own blood rather than something from an outside source.

You also don’t need to worry about any downtime with PRP, a relief if you’re already feeling put out of commission by your injury, surgery recovery, or condition. You can get your PRP treatment without any extra discomfort or loss of mobility. In the weeks that come, the PRP goes to work, helping your body heal more quickly.

Whether you’re trying to bounce back from an injury, a chronic condition, or surgery, don’t hesitate to ask Dr. Zarreii if PRP therapy could be right for you. Contact our team at Zarreii Medical and Aesthetics by either calling us or booking your appointment online.
