Dr. Watkins is a certified Functional and Wellness Physician and is able to get to the root of hair loss if required by looking at:
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a concentration of your own autologous platelets which have reservoirs filled with powerful growth factors and healing agents. It is “harvested” from your own blood. This is done by collecting a small volume of your blood and spinning it down to separate the red blood cells from the platelet cells. This resulting PRP is then activated and introduced back to an area by a tiny injection.
Platelet-rich plasma helps signal your body’s own growth cells to jump start the healing, repair, and rejuvenating process.
Platelet-rich plasma was developed in the 1970s and first used in Italy in 1987 in an open heart surgery procedure. The therapy began gaining popularity in the mid 1990s and has since been applied to many different medical fields such as cosmetic surgery, dentistry, sports medicine and pain management. It also helps maintain optimal sexual health for both men and women.
