Platelet Rich Plasma Injection Huntsville & Decatur, AL
Restoration With Your Blood's Platelets
Blood consists of plasma (water, electrolytes, protein and platelets) with the rest being cells (white and red cells). Platelets not only cause bleeding to stop if you are injured but also contain the vital natural healing components and growth factors that make our bodies knit back together and return to normal. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections leverage all of the amazing factors inside platelets to help make tissues heal, reduce inflammation and even regrow hair.
At Living Healthy MD, we offer the newest PRP injections in Huntsville, Decatur & Madison. Multiple therapy packages are offered as well, combining our services at an affordable price. For more information, call us at (256) 973-1507.
Understanding Our Plasma Injection Therapy
Your blood is drawn using a small needle, usually from a vein in your arm. The blood components are separated using a centrifuge so the concentrated platelet layer can be removed. The platelets are prepared and then injected using ultrasound or X-ray guidance at the target site. There is no downtime and the procedure takes about 30 minutes to complete.
There is some risk of temporary discomfort at the injection and blood draw sites, infection, bruising and failure to provide the desired result. Our PRP injections in Huntsville & Decatur, AL are all-natural and organic with no pharmaceuticals, so allergic reactions are not an issue!
At Living Healthy MD, only board-certified anesthesiologists perform the PRP injections in Huntsville & Decatur, AL.
