PRP Injections (Hair Restoration, Joints) in Durango & Pagosa Springs, CO
Outside the bloodstream, platelets become activated and release proliferative and morphogenic proteins. These proteins appear to work synergistically to invoke the following benefits:
- Induces proliferation and differentiation of various cell types (e.g., progenitor cells, osteoblasts, epidermal cells)
- Enhances production of collagen, proteoglycan and Tissue Inhibitor Metalloproteinases (TIMP
- Stimulates angiogenesis and chemotaxis
PRP is harvested from your own blood by means of a simple blood draw in the office. The actual PRP is separated from the rest of the blood by special equipment. Then, PRP injections are done in the office and are well tolerated. The system that Dr. Williams uses can produce platelet concentrations up to 18x baseline.
