WHAT IS PLATELET-RICH PLASMA (PRP)?
Your blood is made up of four main components: red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, and plasma. Platelet Rich Plasma is a platelet concentrated component from your own blood that contains nutrient rich cells and protein growth factors.
WHAT IS PRP FOR?
Facial and skin rejuvenation, skin regeneration, fine line and wrinkle reduction, alternative to wrinkle relaxers and fillers, promotes hair growth and improves pigmentation.
HOW IS PRP PREPARED?
Platelet Rich Plasma is produced when a small amount of blood is drawn and placed into a sterile, disposable container and then, spun to separate the platelets from your blood sample, resulting in a platelet-rich plasma.
IS PLATELET-RICH PLASMA SAFE?
Platelet Rich Plasma is safe because it comes from your own blood, therefore there is minimal risk for allergic or immune reaction. Platelet Rich Plasma preparation must be conducted by a trained medical professional. Consult your physician for more information.
HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOUR PRP TREATMENT?
Avoid any anti-inflammatories for 5 days prior to the procedure. Tylenol may be taken instead for pain. Stay away from alcohol the day before your treatment. Arnica may be taken to prevent bruising for 3 days prior to your procedure. Make sure you eat and drink prior to your procedure.
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER YOUR PRP TREATMENT?
You may experience some bruising, swelling and tenderness which should resolve in a few days. We recommend that you limit strenuous activities for at least 24 HRS, as this may prolong recovery.
