What Are the Benefits of PRP Treatments?
What are the benefits of PRP treatments? Markham residents have been wondering what all the hype about PRP is! We are here to help you gain an understanding of the benefits, risks, and outcomes of platelet rich plasma treatments.
PRP is beneficial for individuals who are looking to naturally treat a wide variety of skin conditions and ailments, including hair loss, under eye hollows, dark circles, burns, scars, acne, and overall skin rejuvenation. A PRP treatment involves our cosmetic nurse taking one vial of blood from you during your appointment, and placing the vial in a centrifuge so that it can undergo a spin process. We use a double-spin centrifugal process that takes approximately 20 minutes, in order to separate your white blood cells from the plasma. The result is that when the vial emerges from the centrifuge, it appears to be a clear, gold liquid. Our cosmetic injector will then re-inject your white blood cells and plasma into the area that you are having treated.
The plasma will aid in directing your white blood cells to the affected area, and your white blood cells will then begin the healing process. The platelets contain growth factors that promote healing of damaged or aging skin, by way of triggering surrounding cells to proliferate and repair any damages.
How does PRP help with hair loss?
Since the platelets contain growth factors, one of the benefits of PRP treatments that Markham residents have experienced is rejuvenation of the scalp and in turn, healthier hair follicles that are capable of generating new growth.
What are the risks of PRP?
Platelet rich plasma treatments have been approved by the FDA and Health Canada, and our staff are highly experienced with this type of injectable treatment. With that said, there are some risks that you should be aware of. Risks are extremely low, and the most common side effects of platelet rich plasma treatments are swelling and bruising. PRP treatments should be avoided if you have a low platelet count, are on anticoagulation therapy. These treatments should also be avoided if you have sepsis, chronic liver disease, hypofibrinogenaemia, or acute and chronic infections.
