WHAT IS A PRP THERAPY?




PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, which is a substance that contains a high concentration of platelets, a type of blood cell that has clotting and healing properties. Platelets also release growth factors, which are proteins that can stimulate cell regeneration and repair. PRP therapy involves injecting PRP into the target area, such as a damaged tendon, a painful joint, or a balding scalp, to enhance the natural healing process and improve the symptoms or appearance.

ABOUT THE PRP THERAPY PROCEDURE



PRP therapy is usually done in a clinic or a spa by a trained technician or a doctor. The procedure involves taking a small amount of your blood and spinning it in a centrifuge machine to separate the platelets from the other blood cells. The platelet-rich plasma is then injected into the area that needs treatment, using a thin needle. The procedure may take from a few minutes to an hour, depending on the type and number of injections. The procedure may cause pain or discomfort, but most people tolerate it well. Some people may use a topical numbing cream or ice to reduce the sensation.

PRP THERAPY RECOVERY



There is no downtime after a PRP therapy procedure, and you can resume your normal activities right away. However, you should avoid any strenuous activities and follow the doctor’s instructions for wound care and medication. You may experience some mild side effects, such as swelling, bruising, redness, or irritation at the injection site, but these usually subside within a few days. You should contact your doctor if you have any signs of infection, allergic reaction, or serious complications.

ARE YOU THE RIGHT FOR AN CANDIDATE PRP THERAPY



You may be a good candidate for PRP therapy if you have any conditions or issues that can benefit from the healing and regenerative effects of platelets and growth factors, such as chronic tendon injuries, osteoarthritis, hair loss, or skin aging. You should also be in good health, have realistic expectations, and understand the risks and benefits of the procedure. However, PRP therapy may not be suitable for everyone. You should not get PRP therapy if you have any of the following conditions or situations:

  • An active infection, inflammation, or fever.
  • A bleeding disorder or a history of blood clots.
  • A heart condition or a pacemaker.
  • A malignant tumor or cancer.
  • A thyroid disorder or a hormonal imbalance.
  • A pregnancy or a breastfeeding.
  • An allergy to any of the ingredients in the PRP therapy products.
  • You should consult with your doctor before getting PRP therapy to determine if it is safe and effective for you.

The effects of PRP therapy are not permanent and may vary from person to person. Most people notice an improvement in their symptoms or appearance after the first session, and the results may last for several months or years. However, the results may fade over time, as the tissues are exposed to environmental factors, such as sun, pollution, and stress. To maintain the results, you should follow a healthy lifestyle, drink plenty of water, and get regular PRP therapy treatments.

PRP therapy is generally safe and effective when performed by a qualified and experienced provider. However, like any medical procedure, it carries some risks and potential complications. These include:
