Some of the great innovations in medicine and science are not completely understand when they are first released, because there is a natural amount of scepticism and distrust about something that has previously been considered unnecessary. After all, we lived without it before, right? But what so many people do not think about is that just because we did live without a particular medical treatment, that does not mean that we have to – we didn’t say no to television because we had never had it before, so why should we do the same for excellent new understandings for our bodies and what medicines they need?
One of the most impressive developments that will almost certainly be one of the hottest treatment in 2018 is Platelet Rich Plasma treatment. If you have never heard of it before, that is not much of a surprise: many in the medical world are a little confused about what it actually does, so there is no reason why a member of the public would know exactly what it does. Put simply, it is the only known treatment in the world that allows our bodies to harness their own natural healing power, utilising mechanisms buried deep within our own DNA, to quickly and simply supercharge our natural healing process. There is no magic within the platelet rich plasma treatment, just the impressive power that our own bodies possess.
Although considered one of the most exciting developments of modern medicine in decades, the actual treatment for platelet rich plasma is rather simple. All that needs to occur is for a sample of the patient’s blood to be taken and then spun around to isolate the platelet rich plasma. This plasma is then re-injected back into the area of the body that requires the extra healing support, such as the site of an operation, or a part of the body that is aging. There simply isn’t another treatment option out there in the world that can offer such strong benefits without utilising anything complicated – and there are no side effects, because the platelet rich plasma is made from the patient’s own blood.
Although many people consider platelet rich plasma to only be useful for recovery for major surgeries, there are actually several different uses for the treatment method, and the one that is likely to become the most popular is for dermatological care. Our skin is our largest organ, after all, and the better that we are able to look after it, the healthier and happier we will be for longer. Using platelet rich plasma for skin care is not a huge leap when you consider that it rejuvenates the body from the inside out. Most of the time the only reason that our skin does not look so good is because it is not possible for our bodies to revitalize itself. It doesn’t have the building blocks it needs, and even though we have previously learned to use dermal fillers to try and fill those gaps, they only last for a short amount of time.
On the other hand, platelet rich plasma treatments are much better than dermal fillers as they do not force unnatural chemicals into the body, but rather support the body in creating its own natural materials. Dermal fillers cost individuals around the country hundreds of dollars and do not actually help the body itself, whereas platelet rich plasma heals the body itself. We predict that platelet rich plasma is going to become increasingly popular so that by 2018, it will become a standard practice to support patients as a replacement for dermal fillers.
