There are regenerative powers stored within our blood. The growth factors which promote healing are primarily located in the platelets. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) separates and concentrates platelets from your blood to improve health. Because the blood being used is your own, there is no risk of contracting a blood borne disease and side effects are uncommon from PRP injections. PRP can be useful in healing from injuries, reducing inflammation, experiencing relief from pain, and encouraging a more youthful glow. At Ageless Wellness Center in Peachtree City, we are a platelet rich plasma clinic that offers highly effective PRP treatments.
