About Your Procedure?
How is the PRP treatment is performed?
Blood is drawn in our office as if you are having routine blood testing at your primary care physician office. The blood is flood in a centrifuge and the PRP is separated and removed from the rest of the blood. The PRP is taken from the body and is specially prepared by spinning down the blood cells to a high concentration. We use Healeon’s Medical PRP System. It is a close sterile system and the platelets are concentrated to 3X the normal blood values. The system eliminates granulocytes which hurts tissue regeneration and wound healing. An anesthesia is given to the nervous of a scalp so the patient does not feel any pain. The highly concentrated platelet rich plasma PRP is then injected into the scalp. The Patients hair then washed and the patient may drive back home without any assistance. No sedation or medication is given during the procedure to inhibit the ability to drive or use machinery.
Preparing For Your Procedure:
How do I prepare for PRP treatment?
PRP has been used successfully in other medical and surgical disciplines for many years. The decision to use PRP is a personal decision and should be made after careful research, consideration and consultation with a physician. PRP is safe and natural because the procedure concentrates the good cells from your scalp and injects then directly back into the area where it is need. There is absolutely no chance of getting a blood infection from another human being. PRP involves using your own cells that are not modified or changed and it will not be rejected your immune system.
Extensive clinical trials and not complete and medical data is not yet published to established the absolute effectiveness of PRP therapy in hair restoration. PRP should not be considered A “Cure” for hair loss and guarantee can be made about its individual effectiveness. No claim of PRP efficacy in promoting hair growth, hair growth can be made because there is not FDA approval that would allow such a claims to be made.
After Care and Recovery:
To those people aware of their skin texture and structure they may be aware within a week of some early changes. But this is a gradual process with changes continuing to show for 3 to 6 months after the treatment with the platelet rich plasma – PRP – before making a judgment on the outcome. And some will be achieving further changes for another 3 months-6months after the last treatment.
How long will my results lasts?
This depends on multiple factors since it’s your own biological blood and growth factors. Most people start to see results after their second session but some can see changes after the first. Smoking greatly diminishes the effect of PRP as smoking damages the blood platelets, hence rendering it weak. At the movement if it seems to last about 2 years. Obviously there will be variation from one person the next on this. Initially it was felt the effects and the length of benefit would be better in your younger patients with younger cells to work with. But with platelet rich plasma therapy, as with non-ablative laser treatments, effects can be very good in people one would consider older. The benefit of our kids over other PRP products is that ours are FDA approved and focus heavily on research.
