The plasma of your blood contains platelets. These platelets contain proteins called growth hormones that your body uses to support cell growth. When you get injured, for example, these platelets help your blood clot and help the injury site heal. They’re natural healing powerhouses that can unlock your body’s innate ability to repair and restore itself.
Because it leverages your body’s own healing properties, PRP therapy can be used virtually anywhere for a variety of purposes. Specifically, Dr. Manocchio can use it for:
If you want to restore your thick, full head of hair, Dr. Manocchio can use PRP therapy on your scalp. No hair transplant needed! The platelet-rich plasma triggers growth in your hair follicles, helping you naturally grow hair in areas where you’ve experienced thinning and/or balding.
The groundbreaking PRP anti-aging facelift is not only for celebrities anymore. Using your PRP, Dr. Manocchio can turn back the clock on your skin, leaving you looking radiant. The PRP triggers the growth of new collagen, the protein that gives your skin its elasticity. As a result, the PRP facelift can smooth fine lines and wrinkles and fill drooping under-eye bags or nasolabial folds. By stimulating the growth of new tissue, this all-natural facelift makes you look younger because your skin is actually younger afterward.
Whether you have pain in your shoulder, ankle, knee, or another joint, Dr. Manocchio offers PRP therapy as a noninvasive, non-surgical treatment to relieve joint pain. Because PRP triggers natural growth and healing in your joints, it can increase your joint mobility while minimizing any discomfort. Renowned athletes like Tiger Woods and NFL players have used PRP therapy to relieve their own joint pain. Now, Dr. Manocchio can offer it to you.
To create the powerful platelet-rich plasma, Dr. Manocchio takes a small sample of your blood. He then uses a centrifuge to separate out the plasma. Once it’s ready, he injects the PRP at the treatment site, whether that’s your scalp, face, or joint. The process is relatively painless and can rejuvenate and repair your body’s tissue naturally. He can add additional PRP therapy treatments as needed to achieve your desired results.
