How Many Different Conditions Can PRP Therapy Treat
PRP therapy, which is short for platelet-rich plasma therapy, is becoming popular as a natural way to treat a variety of conditions in humans today. As an integral component of blood, plasma’s function is of “healing” through its protein contents. In addition to giving blood its clotting characteristic, it promotes cell growth in the body too. As part of the PRP therapy, your blood is drawn and the platelet rich plasma component which includes cytokines and growth factors is isolated. It is then injected into the tissues or areas including the face, hair, joints, tendons, and sexual organs to help promote better blood flow, healing and repair. The injected plasma has a concentration of growth proteins helping damaged body tissues heal faster, stimulate collagen and skin repair, stimulate hair follicles and more. Due to athletes using PRP therapy frequently, many people are under the impression that it is only used for treating damaged or inflamed tissues and joints as a result of sports activities, but that’s not true.
Here are the many different conditions that today's doctors can treat using PRP therapy.
Damaged Tendons or Tendonitis
Tendons act like ropes to hold bones and muscles together. One of the reasons to help tendons heal through PRP therapy is because their natural healing process can often be slow. PRP injections for tendonitis or tendon tears assist in decreasing inflammation and recovery.
Acne and Acne Scars
Most people are under the impression that acne scars can never go away. However, a combination of PRP micro-needling and PRP injections can heal those scars by promoting the production of collagen. This type of therapy can also help people reduce the wrinkles on their skin.
Skin Rejuvenation & Facial rejuvenation
PRP with micro-needling assists in collagen production and tightening of the skin and removal of skin blemishes such as sun spots and dark under eye circles. Ageing concerns are scary for people. It is scary when you start noticing the first wrinkles on your face and blemishes that blotch the fairness of your looks. Many people choose methods that use synthetic materials to get a youthful face. The big problem with such treatments is that they have a much higher chance of side effects and are often times short lived. With PRP therapy, the concentrated plasma is collected from your blood and used on your own body. Side effects are very less likely to occur.

Hair Loss (Alopecia)
One of the conditions that have kept populations all around the world concerned is alopecia or hair loss. While alopecia (hair loss) is more common in men, even women start losing their hair very fast after the age of 30. Hair loss can be best treated with platelet-rich plasma therapy because this is one of the minimally invasive methods available to treat the condition. In addition to being minimally invasive, PRP injections are also very cost-effective.

PRP hair injections and therapy can stop hair loss and promote and stimulate your own hair follicles to grow and recover.
Stretch marks are among some of the most stubborn skin conditions. A majority of people believes stretch marks never go away. However, PRP therapy combined with micro-needling can change your views about stretch marks and make your skin beautiful again.
