Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy traditionally has been used to speed up healing time after an injury in sports medicine in humans and in horses for decades. The premise behind platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is to inject the blood into a specific body tissue (like a tendon) can enhance the body’s self healing efforts by double or triple to get an athlete, person or race horse back into body mechanic capibilities.
Blood is made of red and white blood cells, plasma, and platelets. Platelets release protein called growth factors, which stimulate body tissue repair. PRP Therapy is about harvesting the blood from the patient, centrifuged (spinning of the specimen to separate blood cells), and re-injecting the concentrated dose of platelets back into the patient into specific body tissue like a tendon, or bone, to stimulate that tissue’s repair mechanisms and grow more tendon, or bone.
PRP Skin Regeneration Therapy uses components called platelets contained in the blood. Platelets play a role in stopping bleeding and repairing damaged blood vessels and cells in the body. Platelets contain substances called growth factors that activate and rejuvenate cells in the body. The growth factors, when released, induce the production of collagen and generation of new capillaries to rejuvenate the skin.
The cosmetic community is quickly recognizing the amazing benefits for aesthetic use. Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy re-injected into the skin, for instance the face, may benefit from an anti-aging affects. The technique applied to delicate facial features may help grow collagen in the skin to replace artificial facial fillers. Growth factors stimulate fibroblast cells which produce the essential protein collagen to restore volume, fleshy tones and smooth out wrinkles.
Doctors of internal medicine focus on adult medicine and have had special study and training focusing on the prevention and treatment of adult diseases. At least three of their seven or more years of medical school and postgraduate training are dedicated to learning how to prevent, diagnose, and treat diseases that affect adults. Internists are sometimes referred to as the “doctor’s doctor,” because they are often called upon to act as consultants to other physicians to help solve puzzling diagnostic problems.
Simply put, internists are Doctors of Internal Medicine. Doctors for Adults. But you may see them referred to by several terms, including “internists,” “general internists” and “doctors of internal medicine.” But don’t mistake them with “interns,” who are doctors in their first year of residency training.
Although internists may act as primary care physicians, they are not “family physicians,” “family practitioners,” or “general practitioners,” whose training is not solely concentrated on adults and may include surgery, obstetrics and pediatrics.
Internists are equipped to deal with whatever problem a patient brings — no matter how common or rare, or how simple or complex. They are specially trained to solve puzzling diagnostic problems and can handle severe chronic illnesses and situations where several different illnesses may strike at the same time. They also bring to patients an understanding of wellness (disease prevention and the promotion of health), women’s health, substance abuse, mental health, as well as effective treatment of common problems of the eyes, ears, skin, nervous system and reproductive organs.
In today’s complex medical environment, internists take pride in caring for their patients for life — in the office or clinic, during hospitalization and intensive care, and in nursing homes. When other medical specialists, such as surgeons or obstetricians, are involved, they coordinate their patient’s care and manage difficult medical problems associated with that care.
