Platelet-rich plasma

PRP injections can treat wrinkles, photodamage and discolouration and is often used in conjunction with other treatments such as facelift, dermal implants, and reconstructive procedures. PRP is immunologically neutral and poses no danger of allergy, hypersensitivity or foreign-body reaction

Platelet Rich Plasma

The basic principle behind PRP is astonishingly simple. Your body has all the essential elements it needs to heal and rejuvenate your cells and organs; and fight against illnesses. Doctors extract these elements from a small sample your blood and prepare a concentration of repairing platelets and other compounds. They place this serum in the exact spot in the body that needs healing. In this way, they set off a cascade of repair that medications and antibiotics may not be able to attain.

Is PRP Treatment Safe?

When checking out any innovative treatment form, one of the first questions patients have is about the potential side effects. Having read about the other PRP applications, rest assured that you can opt for the procedure without running the risk of adverse reactions.

    The PRP serum is a part of your body tissues and when it enters the affected area, the body recognizes the elements and accepts them.

In case patients develop side effects, they are typically the result of other reasons. These factors can include reactions to additives or the anesthetic agents used. You can ensure that therapy has the results you’re looking for by carefully following the aftercare instructions your practitioner gives you. Coming in on schedule for checkups allows your doctor to make sure that healing is proceeding as planned. It is also advisable to follow your doctor’s recommendations regarding the number of sessions you need for complete recovery.

Given a choice between trying potentially harmful medications and chemical drugs, or even, surgery for your medical and aesthetic issues, you may want to try your own blood as a source of healing solutions. And, PRP can provide just that. Check with your medical practitioner for the suitability of the treatment. You might just find that it is a better, safer, and more effective option.
