Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is an injectable substance that contains plasma that contains water and protein. It is responsible for helping the white blood cells and platelets to move quickly through our bloodstream. As we all know, platelets aid in healing any injury in our body, such as damage to tendons, ligaments, joints, and skin wounds. That is why PRP therapy is now created for this purpose.

How Is Plasma Collected?

A machine draws out the plasma from your blood. The machine separates the platelet-rich plasma from the blood. So when you have an injury, the area of the damage is injected with anesthesia, and once it becomes numb, PRP is injected on that spot. Ultrasound is performed in some cases to target the exact area. For example, injury or surgery is in your muscles, PRP is inserted in several spots in that muscle. The platelets speed up healing by breaking down, releasing growth factors in the process. These growth factors are responsible for repairing damaged cells and renewing them. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy treats the following;

  • Torn tendons
  • Tendinitis
  • Muscles injury
  • arthritis
  • Joint injuries
  • Androgenic alopecia
  • Vampire facial

How About Its Efficiency?

Platelet-rich plasma therapy is done after surgery. Some even use it as a treatment for wrinkles. The efficacy of this therapy as a cosmetic treatment is still debatable now. The only sure thing about this therapy is it helps to heal injuries fast. It was also proven to boost mobility for people who have rotator cuff injuries. So far, PRP therapy studies are still ongoing. But its efficacy in speeding up healing in wounds is already 100% effective. But for cosmetic purposes like reducing signs of aging, it still needs more proof. However, for hair loss in people, this therapy shows a positive result. Injection of PRP appears to reduce hair loss. One of its disadvantages is, the result is not immediate. The PRP therapy works after several weeks when it is injected for hair loss. To see its full effect, maintaining the procedure is advised.

Things To Consider Before PRP Therapy

  1. Before getting PRP injections, stop taking ibuprofen and aspirin because they can thin your blood.
  2. Take a break from Vitamins and supplements like omega-3 acids.
  3. Eat appropriately before injection so that you will not feel dizzy or lightheaded after the procedure.
  4. Do not wash the area of injection for 48 hours.
  5. Check for your platelet count first before getting PRP therapy.
  6. Only get PRP injection from a licensed Doctor.

Final Words

Now that you understand Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, you can decide whether your condition needs it. And to be safe, always consult your doctor for the procedure if you are qualified for this kind of therapy or not.

A Home-based Entrepreneur and Blogger For me, being a home-based entrepreneur, parent and blogger has been quite an experience. Here’s how I got started on it all. Where I’ve been Becoming a blogger and a hardcore, home-based entrepreneur wasn’t exactly a planned career action for me. I can almost say I didn’t see it coming. It all started when I got pregnant with my first child. Back then, I was still working as a flight attendant, and I have to admit that I really loved my job. But when that baby came on board, I decided that I wanted to be as involved in my child’s life as I could possibly be. Once I’d made my decision, I swung into action. I quit my job and quickly made plans for a new (and different) life with the baby in mind. My foray into the glamorous world of entrepreneurship and blogging was a little more abrupt. This started a lot more recently.   I first came into contact with these products sometime around two years ago. In 2018, my aunt-in-law would be the first person to preach to me the wonders of Aulora Kodenshi. I confess that I was very skeptical back then. As I mentioned earlier, I didn’t see myself as an entrepreneur (or even a blogger for that matter). I felt I was comfortable in my role as a housewife and that picking up endeavors like that was for people who had more money to “waste.” I decided to continue to keep my focus as a good mother and an ideal housewife. The plan was, if I kept feeding my family good food and making sure that they all exercised regularly, there wouldn’t ever be a need to buy any of the products my husband’s aunt talked to me about. As it turned out, I’d not end up buying the products; I’d also become one of its most vocal advocates. How I Got Here Our second child got a case of eczema when she was about 18 months old. Ever since that time, every so often, she’d have a rather severe outbreak. The doctors would always tell us it was nothing serious, nothing to bother about, and we believed them for the most part. A reason for this was that almost like clock-work, she’d always get better after every 3-6 months. All of this changed though in February 2019. She had an outbreak, and we thought it was normal until she scratched so hard she drew blood. We tried everything to no avail. Frustrated, I decided to try SHIRUTO, one of the many products from BE International. In no time at all, the eczema and even the scars cleared up. I was so excited, I took to my social media page to share my joy, and that’s how I got into blogging and entrepreneurship. Plans for the Future I’m happy with where I am right now. I have a healthy family with a career I want to see grow. I don’t conform to the classic stay-at-mom routine of waking early in the morning. I do my best work at night when everyone’s happy and rested. The goal is to continue to remain healthy and inspire everyone around me to be free and keep those positive vibes flowing strong!
