Platelet-Rich Plasma Injections
Disclaimer: This testimonial does not represent a guarantee of medical improvement, and results may vary depending on the patient.
Platelet Rich Plasma Injections have been used for years in dentistry, reconstructive surgery, and orthopedic medicine, and now doctors are expanding their uses to dermatology, cosmetic facial rejuvenation, sexual dysfunction, hair loss, and skin/injury wound healing.
Dr. Roberts lectures and conducts hands-on training across the country to other physicians about platelet-rich plasma. She is an expert on the therapy and has used it in clinical practice on myriad conditions. Her clinic also has one of the best machines in the Springfield, Missouri area, making one of her treatments equal to about three from a lesser machine.
PRP uses your body’s own natural growth factors and stem cells to generate healing and collagen production. The doctor simply draws your blood and spins it down in a special centrifuge machine that concentrates the stem cells and growth factors into platelet-rich plasma. The plasma can be injected into injured areas, treat sexual dysfunction, regenerate hair growth, and help aging skin regain a youthful, smooth, firm appearance.
This treatment is different because it stimulates your body’s own natural healing. Joint replacements can limit mobility and create risk for infection, but PRP can help elongate the life of natural joints and in some cases eliminate the need for replacement. The injections also offer a natural way to heal diabetic foot ulcers, bedsores, thermal burns and skin graft donor sites, and post-traumatic scars. Patients concerned about hair loss can also find a natural remedy for re-growing hair follicles at their roots. We usually combine PRP with other therapies as well to fully treat hair issues. To learn more about PRP’s potential impacts on your hair loss, see our recent blog post.
We realize you have choices for your treatments, so we value your interest and hope you will choose us as one of the highest quality PRP clinics in the area.
