Platelet Rich Plasma
A process where blood is drawn from an individual, placed in a centrifuge to separate the lighter plasma and platelets from the heavier red blood cells. The platelet rich portion of the plasma is removed and given back to the individual as a localized injection, inhaled or microneedled to promote healing in damaged tissues.
PRP owes its therapeutic use to the growth factors released by the platelets which are claimed to possess multiple regenerative properties.
Joints and Ligaments
Local injections of PRP as a safe and non-pharmaceutical way to promote localized musculoskeletal healing.
There are encouragging studies out of Egypt and Spain Suggesting nebulized PRP can promote healing in both acute and chronic pulmonary issues.
Skin Tone / Hair Loss
PRP has been used since the 1950's for dermatological conditions and more recently hair loss. Vampire Facials are a new fad where PRP is microneedled into the facial skin.
PRP at Satori
We are providing localized injections and nebulized treatments. Will be partnering with an esthetician in Santa Fe, Karmella Salazar to provide vampire facials in the near future.
