Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections target damaged cells with concentrated platelets from your own blood. These platelets are used in clotting and tissue healing, and so are used to speed up recovery.
Platelet Rich Plasma is taken from your own blood so the treatment has very low side effects but is used to treat a multitude of areas. We can use it for the following procedures:
PRP therapy is regularly used in hair restoration with good outcomes for both men and women. Growth factors in your blood cells do the job of naturally stimulating hair follicles.
We recommend a course of up to 3/4 treatments, 4 weeks apart. Then, maintenance treatments 6-18months.
PRP is an especially safe treatment option with no risk of allergic reaction because it is your own blood. However, anytime a needle is placed in the body, there is a risk of infection, bleeding, and nerve damage, but this is extremely rare.
The recovery time from Platelet Rich Plasma treatment is usually a couple of hours. The redness following the treatment normally settles within the hour. Most patients feel more than comfortable carrying about their normal business the same day following PRP treatment.
High amounts of good quality evidence-based medicine support the treatment of PRP, along with its efficacy and success. This evidence exists in many different areas of treatment including; surgery, skin cosmetics, hair restoration, along with being commonly used in sports medicine and orthopaedics. It is also worth noting that research takes time and is expensive, but this being said further solid research is being produced regularly. Particularly, the treatment of PRP versus standard conventional drug treatments.
