In this present day and time that we live in, the medical community has started to use the Platelet Rich Plasma therapy as a alternative to surgery when it comes to treating various conditions. This method works by taking the blood of the patient and separating the platelets in the centrifuge. Right after separating the blood components, the plasma of the patient that has high concentrations of platelets will be injected into the injured area. The theory behind this treatment is that the Plasma that is rich in Platelet which is injected into the injured area will stimulate the healing of various conditions like knee problems, tennis elbow, plantar fasciitis, arthritis as well as strengthening the damaged tendons.

If you are wondering why the said treatment is conducted by directly injecting the platelet into the injured area, well, that is due to the fact that many injuries that therapists are targeting are situated in areas of the body with little blood flow, or at least not enough to be able to carry concentrated platelets to the points which they are most beneficial. Take note that during this treatment, you will experience minor irritation at the injection site, however, that is the only side effect you will get from it because its effectiveness will outweigh everything else.
On the other hand, we want you to know that this therapy can also be used to rejuvenate the face. In rejuvenating the face what usually happens is that plasma that is rich with platelet will be injected in a grid over the area of your face that you want to be revitalized.
