Platelet Rich Plasma Process


How long does it take to have a PRP treatment?

The treatment time is usually less than half an hour and can be done right in the office.

How is the PRP treatment performed?

The treatment is very simple. First, a blood draw is performed. The blood is then placed into a centrifuge and spun at a very high speed for several minutes. After spinning in the centrifuge, the red blood cells are locked in on the bottom, while the plasma-enriched fluid is found on top. This plasma is then extracted and injected into the affected area.

What areas can be treated with PRP?

PRP can be used for soft tissue damage, joint pain, and neuropathy. PRP can also be used for male enhancement shots and female enhancement shots. PRP can also be used for facials and aesthetics treatments, including microneedling and RF microneedling. PRP can also be used for hair restoration.

What are the pre-procedure instructions for PRP?

To prepare for an upcoming treatment, avoid corticosteroids (prednisone, medrol dose pack, Cortisone) for 3 weeks prior to injection. Stop taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as aspirin, Alive, Naproxen, Motrin, or Ibuprofen, or arthritis medications like Celebrex, a week prior to the procedure. If you are on any blood thinners, be sure to notify the provider.

On the Day of the Procedure:
Drink plenty of water and make sure you have eaten something, especially if you have any issues with low blood sugar. Plan to take it easy on the day of and the day after the procedure. If it is your first procedure, you may want to bring a driver.

What are PRP aftercare instructions?

It is common to feel some pain and discomfort for 24-48 hours after injection. You many be numb in the areas treated for 4-6 hours after the procedure. After the first 2-3 days, the soreness will start to subside. It is important to listen to the body. Try to refrain from any strenuous activity but stay as mobile as possible. Get up and walk frequently. “Motion is Lotion!”

Do not use any medication containing ibuprofen, naproxen, aspirin or other prescription anti-inflammatory medications, such as Motrin, Advil, Aleve, Voltaire, Mobic, or Celebrex for 7 days after treatment.

You may use ice, adequately insulated, as needed for pain and /or swelling (10 minutes to cool the skin, repeat every 2-3 hours as needed). Be sparing of your use of ice beyond three weeks post-injection.

I used to sit or lay down almost all the time, now when I wake up I the morning my back is a little achy but goes away within ½ hour. I feel great most all day. I am so much improved I haven’t even used a walker for about a month. I am so grateful for this treatment, I can’t find the words to thank you. Considering my age (80) I feel great!!
