Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

Introducing Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatments at IMH Gold Coast

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy has emerged as a sought-after medical treatment, recognized for its potential benefits across various fields including sports medicine, orthopaedics, dermatology, and aesthetics. At IMH Gold Coast, we're excited to offer PRP treatments, leveraging the power of this innovative therapy to enhance healing and regeneration.

Here's what you need to know about PRP therapy:

What is Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy?

PRP therapy involves extracting a concentrated solution of platelets, growth factors, and bioactive proteins from the patient's own blood, which is then injected into the target area to stimulate tissue repair and healing.

How does PRP Therapy Work?

  • Blood Collection: A small blood sample is drawn from the patient's arm, similar to a routine blood test.
  • Centrifugation: The blood sample is spun in a centrifuge machine to separate its components, isolating the platelets and plasma.
  • Extraction of PRP: The platelet-rich plasma, with its higher concentration of platelets and growth factors, is extracted from the sample.
  • Injection: The prepared PRP solution is injected directly into the target areas.

How We Use PRP Treatments

At IMH Gold Coast, PRP injections are commonly utilised to address musculoskeletal injuries such as tendonitis, ligament injuries, osteoarthritis, and muscle tears. By harnessing the growth factors in PRP, we aim to promote tissue repair and regeneration, potentially expediting the healing process.

Additionally, PRP therapy can be beneficial for facial rejuvenation, hair loss treatment, scar reduction, and wound healing. It is believed to stimulate collagen production and improve skin texture and elasticity.

While PRP therapy has shown promising results, its effectiveness may vary depending on factors such as the specific condition being treated and individual health factors. As with any medical procedure, it's important to discuss the potential benefits and risks with your healthcare provider.
