What types of PRP injections are there?
Different types of PRP injections are designed to heal and repair injuries. Medical studies show these shots work for:
- Tennis elbow
- Knee osteoarthritis
- Sports injuries, including pulled muscles and sprains
- Hair loss
Your doctor is the first authority when it comes to healing and treating injuries and wounds. PRP injections may give your body’s natural healing a boost. They also help give you more youthful skin, which is the type of PRP treatment we have here at Emerge Tulsa.
What happens with PRP injections and therapy?
PRP injections work by harvesting platelets from your body. Platelets contain a lot of proteins, and their overall function is to clot your blood, encourage healing, and repair injuries. What we do is take a small amount of your blood and then run it through a machine called a centrifuge. The centrifuge separates the blood into its component parts, including platelets and plasma.
After we separate the platelets, we inject them into the part of your skin that’s damaged or wrinkled. The injection site undergoes slight swelling, which indicates your body’s natural healing process has started.
